Diana Ammenett (Ahmend)

#215, b. circa 1805
Conflicting evidence states that Diana Ammenett (Ahmend) was born circa 1815 at Tennessee.1 Conflicting evidence states that Diana Ammenett (Ahmend) was born circa 1820 at Tennessee.2

Major Life Events

     Diana Ammenett (Ahmend) was born circa 1805 at Tennessee.3 Conflicting evidence states that Diana Ammenett (Ahmend) was born circa 1815 at Tennessee.1 Conflicting evidence states that Diana Ammenett (Ahmend) was born circa 1820 at Tennessee.2 She married Luke Stansbury, son of Luke Stansbury and Nancy Haddock, on 1 June 1824 at Knox Co., Tennessee.4,5,6

Narrative

     Diana was also known as Diana Deaver Umberset.

     Although many genealogies have put Diana Umberset as the third wife of Luke Stansbury [Sr.], I do not believe this to be true. Luke [Sr.] died in 1848, his second wife, Nancy Haddock, was alive in the 1850 census of Knox Co. Tennessee and is buried next to Luke at the New Hopewell Baptist Church Cemetary. There is no indication that Luke [Sr.] would have divorced Nancy and remarried, especially as early as 1824. It is more likely than that Deaver Umberset is the wife of Luke Jr. Additionally I am uncertain as to the origin of the given name Deaver. I have only seen this in some genealogies. Other records, including her marriage liscense has her given name as Diana.

     Diana's surname on her marriage liscense appears to be Umberset but it is very difficult to read. The U could very well be an A. The death certificate for Amanda, Luke's and Diana's daughter, indicates that Amanda's mother name was Mary Ahmet and that she was from Pennsylvania. However, the information for the death certificate was given by the daughter of Amanda's husband Thomas Treadaway, Susan, who was adopted by Amanda after her marriage to Thomas and may not have been familiar with Amanda's family.

     A letter from a Lottie Fulton (a granddaughter of Luke and Diana) in the possession of one researcher indicates that they always thought that Diana's maiden name was Ammenett. She indicated that the middle name of their son James A. Stansbury was Diana's maiden name but there is no records available showing James's middle name.

Major Life Events

     Hosea Rose was probably born at Virginia circa 1742.1 He married Sarah ?. Hosea died after 1830 at Sevier Co., Tennessee.

Children of Hosea and Sarah:

Narrative

     Hosea Rose's given name in early colonial records is found spelled several different ways; Hosey, Ozee, Oza, Osa, Osse, and Ose.

     Earlier research that indicated that Hosea Rose married Sarah (Bradford) Taylor, widow of William Taylor sometime after William's death in 1760 and that they moved with Sarah's two sons, Parmenas and LeRoy to Burke Co., North Carolilna has been disproved by later research. It appears that Sarah's second husband was likely Bennet Rose not Hosea Rose. [See Tennessee Ancestors Vol. 15, Nos. 1, 2 and 3, 1999, a publication of the East Tennessee Historical Society.]

     The name of Hosea's wife appears in only one known record. In a packet papers for an 1807 Washington County case of John Smith versus Horatio Foard and Edward Reves found in the holdings of the Archives of Appalachia there was a bill of costs that listed several witnesses including Hosea Rose and a Sarah Rose. Inside the packet was a receipt signed by Hosea Rose "Recd of James Sevier four dollars and ninety five cents for myself and wifes attendence as a witness in the Suit John Smith against William Smith." The surname of Hosea's wife remains unknown.2

     The earliest record of Hosea is a tax record in Granville Co., St. John's District, North Carolina in 1762 along with John Rose. He appears on Bute Co. tax lists in 1766, in the household of Joseph Wright. Bute Co. was formed from Granville Co. in 1764. In 1772 he is mentioned in the court records of Surry Co. as a witness. Two years later he is found on the tax records of Surry Co. from which Wilkes Co. was formed in 1778. In 1779 John Sr., and John Jr., are obtaining land in Wilkes Co. while Hosea is obtaining land in Washington Co., North Carolina (later Tennessee.) John Rose Sr. deeded 100 acres of land to "Ozee" Rose 27 April 1784, in Wilkes Co., from his 400 acre grant on Gray's Creek. In a deed date 11 June 1784, Hose Rose of Wilkes Co. deeds to Sterling Rose for sixty pounds, land containing 100 acres in the county of Wilkes on Gray's Creek beginning at the northeast corner, running south to John Rose Contidional line, west to the mouth of a small branch against the plantation, northwest to a pine, north to a red oak on Thomas Paynes line, east to the beginning. The deed was witnessed by John Cargile and John Turnbill and proved in the July Term 1784.

     J. G. M. Ramsey, Annals of Tennessee to the End of the Eighteenth Century, on page 138 indicates that "Ossa Rose" is a signer of the Wautauga Association petition to the Provincial Council of North Carolina, not dated, but received in Raleigh on 22 August 1776. This petition contains about 115 names of the earliest settlers in what is now Tennessee. There was survey for Hosea Rose in Washington Co., North Carolina on December 3, 1778, 299 acres situated in Washington Co., on south fork of Cherokee Creek bounded by Mr. Baileys and Lewis land. Hosea sold the 299 acres 10 August 1783 to John Hunter for 15 pounds. It appears that Hosea may have returned to Wilkes Co. but later returns to Washington Co.

     On October 13, 1779, 100 acres of land was laid off and measured for Hosea Rose on the north fork of Cherokee Creek joining James Rheas land and transferred to Benedict Middleton and then transferred to said Rose 10 March 1784. On 17 November 1790 Hosea Rose obtained another grant of 320 acres on Robert Sevier's line in Washington Co.

     In 1783, Hosea appears as Roase in the court records of Washington Co., Tennessee. In 1799 sold 100 acres on Cherokee Creek to Jeremiah Regen. On February 2, 1807, he sold land between the waters of Cherokee and Knobs Creeks to Edward Reves for $116. On November 2, 1807, Hosea sold land to Henry Taylor for $1300. On November 11, 1807, he acquired 150 acres of land whereon Peter Bowman now lives for $306.

     Hosea appears on the Washington Co. Tax lists in 1778, 1791 through 1797, 1801, 1806 and 1807. He received two land grants from Tennessee in Sevier Co; seven acres and three rods dated 29 May 1807 for $87.97 1/2, and 132 acres one rod and eleven poles south of French Broad and Holston date 26 may 1807 for $119.07.

     He served as a Lieutenant in the Washington Co. Militia.3 Two pay vouchers were issued by the auditors of Washington Co. and Sullivan Co., North Carolina: no. 1689 - Hosea Rose allowed one pound eleven shillings and sixpence specie 12th June 1783, signed by Landon Carter, Anthony Bledsoe, and J. Sevier; and no. 773 - certify Hosea Rose allowed fifteen pounds, one shilling and sixpence specie June 1783, signed ?, Edmund Williams, and John Sevier. Hosea also may be the Hosea Ross in State Treasury Revolutionary Army Accounts, North Carolina Archives, no. 1209 "Hosea Rofs for svces against the Chicomaga Indians", dated May 28, 1790.

     Hosea appears several times in the court minutes of Washington Co. from 1782 through 1808. The Tennessee Historical Magazine, vol. 6, page 57 states that on 20 April 1815 John Sevier met with Hosea Rose and others at Boyd's Creek (Brabson's Ferry) for a Battalioin Muster. He then returned with Hosea to Gap Creek and they dined at Hosea's home. John Sevier was a early settler of the area and also was a Congressman.4

     A document found at the Tennessee State Library, Court Records, Washington County, I-C-I, Box !, Folder 3, Acquisition 25 states that on 20 November 1780 that John Tipton, John Sevier, Lieutenant Hosea Rouse and others met in a court of equity. Hozea Roase signed the order with others. This group was to report for the battle that developed at Cowpens, NC on 17 January 1781 but they never crossed the mountains into North Carolina. Hosea very likely fought at the Battle of Boyds Creek (with the Cherokee Indians) during the Revoulutionary War but there is no actual record to support this. This battle with the Indians was between the time of the order to go to meet General Davidson and the battle at Cowpens. Also since Hosea Rose was a Lieutenant only a few weeks after the Battle of Kings Mountain, it is very likely that he was at King's Mountain also. He was a friend of all of the principals that were there from this side of the mountain and all able men from this side of the mountain went to the Battle of Kings Mountain.5

     Although the names of any daughters are not known, possible daughters include one unnamed daughter who married John Cunningham as his first wife. Also, in an 1804 Washington County ejectment case co-defendants with Lovina Rose were John Pitner and Patsey Casedy. Hosea Rose not only signed the appearance bond for Lovina Rose but also signed bonds for John Pitner and Patsey Casedy. Pitner later moved to Sevier County near Hosea Rose. Possibly the wife of John Pitner and Patsey Casedy also are daughters of Hosea.6

U. S. Census Records

Census1830Hosea Rose was listed as the head of a family on the 1830 Census at Sevier Co., Tennessee. Enumerated were:
          1 White Male 80-90 (Hosea)
          1 White Female 60-70 (probably wife of Hosea).7

     Adam Wilhite was born circa 1760 at Culpeper Co., Virginia.1,2 He married Missy Batey or Patey ?.3 Adam died before December 1815 at Jefferson Co., Tennessee.4,5

Children of Adam and Missy:

Narrative

     Adam signed a petition in Culpeper Co., Virginia in 1776. In the same county Adam and wife Batey sold 50 acres in Greene Co., Tennessee to Bryant MDGrath on 16 Nov. 1778.

     Adam apparently moved to east Tennessee, then North Carolina, with his father Conrad prior to 1782. Adam "Willhight" received a land grant from North Carolina date Sept. 29, 1783 for 200 acres of land in Greene Co. This land was surveyed Jan. 7, 1787. In Greene Co., Tennessee, he was taxed for 200 acres in 1785. Also, in Greene Co. he received a grant for 200 acres on Camp Creek on 18 March 1789. Camp Creek was described as being in Washington Co. although the grant was recorded in Greene Co. and Camp Creek actually lies wholly in Greene Co.6 There is an additional land grant in 1789 to a Adam Wilheight of 200 acres in Washington Co. on the waters of the Nolachucky.7

     Adam received several other land grants in Greene, Hawkins, and Jefferson Co. with the last Mar. 5, 1798 in Jefferson Co. where he received 250 acres on the north side of French Broad River on the waters of Dumplin Creek adjacent to Abraham Swagerty.8 However, land grant #350 dated Mar. 8, 1793 on Beaver Dam Creek, Hawkins Co., was recorded Apr. 11, 1808 in Knox Co., Tennessee. On 19 Aug. 1793 he sold 12 1/2 acres on Camp Creek to John McDonald.

     The Germanna Record No. 13 indicates that the probable children of Adam were Ezekiel, John, Nancy, and James who married Comfort Stansbury. Futher research has questioned whether the James that married Comfort Stansbury was the son of Adam and speculates that James that married first Peggy Baker and second Susan Cates was the son of Adam.

     Additional daughters have been identified by Terri Jean Adams of Florida. These daughters are (given name unknown) married William Hickman, Avy Anne married Thomas Cate, Barbara married Samuel Cate, and Elizabeth married Joshua Cate.

     Family tradition provided by Terri Jean Adams of Florida says there was a grandparent that drowned while crossing a river and the body was never found. According to Marge Wilhite, publisher of The Wilhoit-Wilhite Connexions, says that family records of the descendants of Madison Willhite, projected grandson of Adam, state that Madison drowned while crossing the river going to another piece of property. However, nothing was mentioned about the incident in the obituary for him. It may be that the family tradition was referring to Adam. Since no corpse was found, Adam was presumed dead by the state in Jefferson Co. in Dec. 1815.

Narrative

     The LDS Ancestral file gives Simeon's birth place as Grainger Co., Tennessee while the Germanna Record No. 13 gives his birth place as Washington Co., North Carolina (now Tennessee).

     Simeon first married Mary Shutter or Dew in Kentucky about 1802 or 1806. The Germanna Record No. 13 gives the marriage date of Simeon and Mary Shutter or Dew as 1806 in Kentucky. The LDS Ancestral file gives Marys name as Dew and a marriage date of 1802 in Campbell Co., Tennessee. He later married Mary Totten but no marriage date is given. As such I have not been able to determine which of the children of Simeon might be children of his second wife Mary Totten and have listed all of his children under his first wife, Mary Shutter or Dew.

     Simeon is buried near La Follett.

Children of Tobias and Catherine:

Narrative

     Most reseachers name only five children for Tobias and Catherine based on the names mentioned in his will. These five are Michael, Conrad, Jesse, William, and Mary. Reta C. Kirk, in a submission to the Wilhite-Wilhoit Connections first printed in Volume II, Number 2, page 75 and reprinted in Volume IX, Number 2, page 452, builds a case for additional children of Tobias and Catherine. The additional children normally have been listed as children of Matthias, a brother of Tobias, and are Catherine, Joel, John, Lewis, and Tobias. Additionally, she proposes that the Lewis and William listed with Matthias are the same Lewis and William listed for Tobias. She bases her analysis on Lewis' will which names as legatees his brothers Tobias, Jessee, William, and Joel and also mentions that William and Caty Cook have his mare between them. She places John as a son of Tobias based on the names of some of his children; Catherine, Tobias, Jesse, and Lewis.

     Without going into the full analysis of Ms. Kirk, I tend to agree with her and have listed the children of Tobias and Catherine based on her conjecture.

     Tobias made a will on 1 September 1761. The will of Tobias:

     In the name of God Amen
     I Tobias Wilhoit, of the County of Culpeper and Parish of Bru_sfield being in perfect sences and Memory do make this my last will and Testament in manner and form following first I give my Soul into the hands of all mighty God that gave it hoping through the Merits of my Savior to receive pardon of all my Sins and my Body I bequeath to the Earth in sure and certain hopes of its Resarection to Eternal life to be decently Enterned at the Discretion of my Executrix and Executors herafter Named

Narrative

     Johann Michael Willheit went by the name of Michael.

     Johann Michael had a twin, Matthias, who died 8 February 1671, about two weeks after birth.

     Johann Michael is believed to have been a member of the second Germanna Colony. The first Germanna Colony consisted of Germans recruited from the Nassau-Siegen region of Germany by Governor Alexander Spotswood as skilled laborers for his iron works. These immigrants have been throughly researched and documented.

     The members of the second Germanna Colony established in 1717 have been more of a mystery. Much of the mystery surrounding the second colony has been resolved by the examination of the records in Württemberg and Baden and documented in Cerny's and Zimmerman's Before Germanna No. 1, The Ancestry of Johann Michael Willheit and Anna Maria Hengsteler as follows:

     The immigrants of the second colony, comprised of Lutherans, left Germany on 12 July 1717 for Pennsylvania. Their choice of vessel was unfortunate. The vessel made the customary stop in London, but the colonists were detained for several weeks while the captain of the vessel was imprisoned for debt. Food supplies dwindled while the passengers waited for the captain's release. Starvation claimed the lives of several at sea. There is no details of the crossing, but the captain did not land in Pennsylvania. Instead he took the approximately 100 passengers to Virginia where he sold them as indentured servants to Spotswood to pay for their passage and confiscated their belongings.

     Spotswood may have recognized the injustice done these immigrants, but he nonetheless profited from the situation to extract eight years of indentured labor from them. They were not released until 1725, a year longer than the customary seven years for indenture service. Spotswood sued 19 of them in 1723 and 1724 to force them into their extended service. It is now believed that the second colony consisted of more than the 19 being sued by Spotswood. It may be that only those who adamantly refused to continue their indenture were enjoined in the suit. Others may have wanted to avoid conflict with the powerful governor and gave in to his demands.

     Few inter-marriages took place between the first and second colony. The first colony was composed of members of the Reformed faith, while the second colony were strict adherents to the Evangelical Lutheran religion.

     Even though he was not among the 19 colonists being sued by Spotswood, the belief that Johann Michael was part of the second colony is based on the fact that his name disappears from parish records in Schwaigern after 13 December 1715, the birth of his son Johann Cristian; he was granted land at the same time in 1724 and in the same Robinson River area as other recognized members of the second colony; and his family attended the Hebron Church in Orange County where the German Lutherans of the second colony worshipped. Also, most of his descendants married into other second colony families.

     Some genealogists have speculated that Johann Michael's second wife was Mary Blankenbaker whom he married in 1710. There is no record of such a marriage in Schwaigern records. On the contrary, the parish register shows that Anna Maria was alive and having Johann Michael's children in 1710. She had two children after that date. There is no mention of her death in Schwaigern records. It is therefore reasonable to assume that she is the wife who accompanied him to Virginia in 1717 and is the wife Mary mentioned in his will. Johann Michael's name was anglicized to Michael Wilhoit and it is not unlikely that Anna Maria's name was changed to Mary in the same way. Additionally, Evangelical Lutheran parish records in Neuenberg, Baden show that Maria Blanckenbuhler (Mary Blankenbaker) was the wife first of John Thomas 18 November 1711 and second of Michael Kaifer (date unknown) in Virginia.4

     Johann made a will on 1 January 1742 at Orange Co., Virginia. Will of Michael Willheit:

     In the name of God Amen, I Michael Willheit of the parish of St. Mark and county of Orange being sick and weak in body but of sound mind and perfect memory (thanks be to Almighty God for the same) do make this my last will and testament in manner and form following: First I recommend my soul to God that gave it trusting and surely believing that through the merits of my Blessed Savior, Jesus Christ, to receive full remission and forgiveness of all my sins, my body I commit to the earth to be decently buried at the direction of my executors hereafter named.

Major Life Events

     John Rose [Sr.] was probably born at Surry Co., Virginia, before 1727.1,2 He married Elizabeth Gray?.1 John died in 1792 at Wilkes Co., North Carolina.2

Children of John and Elizabeth:

Narrative

     On 9 October 1759, John Rose of Southampton County, Virginia, mortgaged all his personal property to Thomas Adams also of Southampton to secure a debt owed by John to Adams. In 1762 John Rose (Sr.) and his son Hosea is listed in a tax list in Granville County, North Carolina.3

     In 1766 tax list for Bute County, North Carolina (formed from Granville County in 1764) John Rose is listed in a few listing from his son Hosea who is listed in the household of Joseph Wright. There are several Bute County interactions between the Rose and Wright families. There is no indication of any of John's sons marrying a Wright wife. However, since no daughters of John Rose have been identified there is a possiblility that a daughter may have married a Wright.3

     In 1769, John Rose purchased 200 acres in Bute County on Crooked Creek holding it a little over a year before selling it. It was another year before the sale deed was proved in court and some three months later on 15 May 1771, Elizabeth, John Rose's wife, appeared in court to release her interest in the property.Afterward the family moved west to Surry County, North Carolina, settling in that portion of Surry County that would fall within the bounds of Wilkes County when formed in 1778.4

     The will of John's father, Richard Rose, written in 1765 mentions only a son Burell and daughter Mary. Richard never owned any land. Therefore it is not unsual that his will would divide his small personal holdings among those that had the greatest need and still living nearby in Virginia. There would be no need for him to mention any additional blood heirs that may have been living in other states. John Rose had left Virginia several years before Richard drew up his will.5

     An Elizabeth Rose was mentioned in the 1756 will of Mary Grey, widow of William Grey of Surry Co., Virgina, as granddaughter. Researchers have thought this to be the Elizabeth that was mentioned as having released her interest in a tract of land sold by John Rose Sr. in Bute County, North Carolina, in 1770. Carl York in his article on Lt. Hosea Rose that appeared in the Tennessee Ancestors, questions that assumption. The Grays of Surry County, Virginia, were substantial, land-owning families and it would seem likely that they would assist their children in getting a start in life. John Rose Sr. was married for more than 20 years before he owned land and had been in financial shortfall while living in Virginia. If he had married Elizabeth Gray it would seem that the Gray family would have assisted the Rose family in those early years. According to Carl York a better candidate for the husband of Elizabeth Gray might be Robert Rose, brother of John Rose Sr. The first mention of Robert Rose was the 1758 Edgecombe County, North Carolina, deed detailing his purchase of land -- this by a man whose father was not in the land-owning class. It would be safe to assume that Robert's marriage may have been the event that permitted him to purchase land. The name of Robert's wife never appears in any document. While not conclusive this does raise the question as to whether Elizabeth Gray was John Rose Sr.'s wife or the wife of his brother Robert.6

Children of Zachariah and Mary:

Narrative

     Zachariah apparently had a first wife and children. The 1830 Knox County Census shows Zachariah with 1 male and 3 females born between 1815 and 1830. No female old enough to be his wife is shown. He married his second wife, Mary Ford, in September 1830. Zachariah was a Justice of the Peace for Knox Co. and was licensed to perform marriage cermonies at least from 1842 to 1846 and perhaps longer8.

     Zachariah's second wife, Mary Ford, was an older sister of Nancy Ford who married George M. Burnett, Zachariah's son from his first marriage.

     A Chancery suit seeking the division of the estate of Zachariah Burnett detailed his heirs.
Knox County, Tennessee, Chancery Court Docket #2813, filed 20 July 1875 -- E. F. Wilhite vs Z. H. Burnett, Juda Monday, Easter Sword, Nancy Burnett, E. B. Burnett, N. H. Burnett, Elizabeth Burnett, James Wilhite & wife Sinday J. Wilhite, J. B. Burnett and Leonodas Sherrod -- " Zachariah Burnett died intestate in the county of Knox in the year 1863 leaving the following heirs viz: his children, Z. H. Burnett, Judah Monday formerly Judah Burnett, Easter Sword formerly Easter Burnett, James R. Burnett, E. D. G. Burnett, Mary Monday formerly Mary Burnett, Martha Johnson, formerly Martha Burnett, Emiline Sherrod formerly Emiline Burnett, and George Burnett: and since the death of the said Zachariah Burnett his son George has died leaving a widow Nancy Burnett, and children as follows, viz: E. B. Burnett, Sindy J. Wilhite formerly Sindy J. Burnett, and also since the death of the said Zachariah, Emiline Sherrod has died leaving an only child, Leonodas Sherrod…."


     Zachariah served in the War of 1812 enlisting 13 November 1814 in Col. Edwin E. Booth's Regiment of East Tennessee Militia.9 On 16 June 1815, he and his brother Benjamin assigned power of attorney to Elliot Ingliss of Knoxville to pursue any further compensation due them for their war service. For Zachariah that service was recorded under the name of Zachariah M. B. Burnett. This is the only record showing middle intiails for Zachariah.91

Major Life Events

     Jeremiah Burnett was born circa 1768 at Buckingham Co., Virginia.1 He married Judith P. Blackburn, daughter of John Blackburn and Mary Griffin, circa 1792.2 Jeremiah died before July 1821 at Knox Co., Tennessee.3

Children of Jeremiah and Judith:

Narrative

     Jeremiah can be first found on the 1789 Tax List of Buckingham County, Virginia, beside his father Joseph. He was 21 years of age at the time. He was listed the following year of 1790 and not shown thereafter. He first appears in Knox County, Tennessee, records about 1789 in John Burdin vs Jeremiah Burnett. In 1806 he was on the tax list with 1 tithe, 50 acres of land. In 1807 he is on three juries. Also in 1807, April 18, Jeremiah and Benjamin Burnett secure a bond of $5,000 for John Amonet, cotton inspector., and on August 4, there was a survey of 106 acres of land in the District of French Broad, So. Holston for Jeremiah by Robt. Armstrong, Deputy Surveyor. In July 1809 he was again a juror and on November 23 is granted 106 acres and one rod of land on Shooks Creek, Knox County. In 1810 there is a court case George Wrinkle, Admr. of George Wrinkle, dec'd … vs Jeremiah Burnett & Benjamin Burnett … a cost of debt of $33.37 plus $3.31, the debtors court cost in which 179 acres of land belonging to Benjamin Burnett is attached. On March 4, 1813, Joseph Burnett sold to Jeremiah Burnett, 77 acres and 1 rod for $200 on French Broad River joining George Wrinkle. This was a deed from his father and the last record of Joseph in Knox County. He died sometime after this date.4 This land was described as "for the use of academies on the water of Mill Shoal Creek" and was a parcel that would reserve its sales and tax moneysfor the general fund as a way of supporting schools. Other records would show that this tract was a little over 87 acres rather than 77 acres.5 Mill Shoal Creek would later be known as Burnett's Creek.

     Deed to Jeremiah dated 20 June 1810: 106 acres + 1 rod: beginning at a pine & running with Fosters line S57E, thence with vacant land S3E to a Postoak, S75W to a Hickory, S54W to a Pine, then with Chesley Paine line N47W to a stake, then with the vacant land N45E to the beginning. The sum of $106.25 being due and chargeble on said land with interest.6

     Bork in her Burnett Connections mistakenly assigned some of the children of Jeremiah to his brother Benjamin. The nine children of Jeremiah can be identified by a court case file in 1871 by his son Blackburn H. Burnett who felt that there was more due him from his father's estate than he had received and he also felt that there was a residue from the estate of his deceased brother Benjamin that had not been properly distributed. This filing can be found in Chancery documents 2235 and 2236 both which contains the original pleadings filed 23 January 1871. In one of these cases testimony by Jeremiah's son Joseph revealed the death of Jeremiah's widow Judith as "say about the first day of April 1863". Blackburn did not prevail in either of the two court cases and was left with nothing but a bill for the court costs. Further details on these case are discussed in the source cited here.7 He purchased land on 20 June 1810 at Knox Co., Tennessee.

     Jeremiah made a will on 26 March 1821 at Knox Co., Tennessee. Jeremiah's will:
In the name of God, amen, I, Jeremiah Burnett of the County of Knox and State of Tennessee, being Sick And weak of body but of Sound and disposing memory for which I thank God and Calling To mind the Uncertainty of human Life and being desirous to dispose of Such Wordly Substance as it has pleased God to bless me with -- I give and bequeath the same in manner following, that is to say: 1st, I desire that my perishable property be immediately Sold after my decease as much as will pay all my Just debts. 2nd, After my Just debts is paid I give my wife Judith all my real and personal estate during her natural life after her decease my desire is to divide my real and personal property Equally among my children all but my bible which I give to my youngest Son Wm when comes of age and lastly I do hereby constitute and appoint my sons Zachariah Burnett and Benjamin Burnett executors of this my Last will & testament hereby revoking all other wills or testaments by me hereto fore made in witness whereof I have Set my hand and Seal this 26th Day of March 1821 Jeremiah (X) Burnett (Seal), Witnesses to the same John Hawthorne, R.

     His will was probated at Knox Co., Tennessee.

McBath subscribing witnesses thereto made Oath that they saw the said Jeremiah Burnett sign and seal the said Instrument of writing and heared him pronounce publish and declare the same to be his last Will and testament that he was at the time of publishing of sound mind & perfect Memory to the best of their Knowledge and belief - which Will is ordered to be Recorded and is in the words & figures following to wit: (text of will)3


     Zachariah and Benjamin were "empowered to take possession all and Singular the goods and chattels right and credits of the Said testator" the first Monday of July 1821. An inventory of Jeremiah Burnett deceased indicated eighty four acres of land, one grist mill, two head of horses, twelve head of cattle, seventeen head of hogs, fifteen head of sheep, one pair of cart wheels, three feather beds and furniture, one cupboard and wares, one table, one pair of Stellyards, one chest, two cotton wheels, one check Reele, one pot, one oven, one skillet, six chairs, one loom, one plow and gees, two fallin axes.

     In Jeremiah's estate inventory there is listed a Grist Mill. In 1848, some Jeremiah's heirs, William M. Burnett, Lemuel Burnett, Zachariah Burnett, and Blackburn Burnett, sold their "fee simple interest in the land to take effect and be united with the possessions after the death of Judith Burnett who had a life estate in the same," to their cousin, Joseph Burnett, son of Benjamin. A clear title could not be recorded until after the death of Judith in 1859. After Joseph bought the land in 1848, he sold it to his brother Jesse Burnett on March 27, 1849.8

Children of Joseph and an unknown spouse:

Narrative

     June Baldwin Bork, The Burnetts and Their Connections, indicates that she cannot say for sure that Joseph was the son of Jeremiah Burnett. She believes he was from the records she found and from the names he gave this children.

     Joseph remained in Buckingham Co. Virginia for at least 29 years before moving to Knox Co., Tennessee. He was well established in Buckingham County by the time he appears tax list available in 1764 with 200 acres of land. He appears on all tax lists through 1792. Joseph married about 1765, probably in Buckingham Co., but there is no mention of his wife.

     Knox County was formed in 1792, the last year that Joseph appeared in Buckingham County. Reports of new vacant lands opening for settlers in Knox County had reached Buckingham. It is believed that Jeremiah preceded his father and brother to Knox County. It is likely they traveled the Great Wagon Road, the most important inland road of the pre-Revolutionary period.

     Joseph and his sons, Jeremiah and Benjamin, were the first Burnetts to settle in Knox Co. shortly after is was formed in 1792. They lived along the southern banks of the French Broad River and just across the river from the settlement of Mecklenburg.4

     Joseph bought 77 acres and 1 rod, land on French Broad River located from his father for the use of Academies in Knox Co., District of French Broad and Holston Rivers on waters of Shole Creek.5

Children of Jeremiah and Mary:

Children of Jeremiah and Rebecca:

Narrative

     Jeremiah was born on Piscataway Creek in South Farnham Parish. Jeremiah's mother, Amy, evidently was pregnant with Jeremiah when her husband John died. Jeremiah was not mentioned in his father's will which was written 17 September in Essex Co. naming his five children. John died eight months later at age 47, shortly before 21 May 1718, when his will was proved in court. In 1771, Jeremiah's brother, Joseph, died intestate in Essex Co. where he had been a wealthy man with land in Essex, his home plantation, and also in Dinwiddie and Caroline Counties. Joseph's son, Richard, filed his Administrator Account with the Court in Essex on 22 October 1773 and listed on his account was the following words, "By articles inventoried and not sold which his brother Jeremiah Claims, totaling 15 pounds, 17 shillings and 6 pence. Joseph had sons Jeremiah, Joseph, Leonard … but when these names were listed by Richard, he said only their names and did not give relationship to his father, meaning Richard had to define who the above "Jeremiah" was. This statement proves without doubt that Richard was referring to two Jeremiahs, one the brother and one the son of Joseph.3

     When Jeremiah was 12 his mother and his step-father, David Scott, moved to Spotsylvania County and this is probably where he was raised.

     There is a marriage record dated 16 October 1738 in Talbot Co., Maryland to Mary McDaniel of St. Peter's Parish and another dated 27 January 1746 in New Jersey to Rebecca Brown of Burlington. According to Bork in The Burnetts and Their Connections neither of these have been researched and either or both could belong to this Jeremiah. This will need to be researched further.

     After the above marriages, there is no mention of Jeremiah again until the 1763 Tax List for Hanover County, where he is shown with 100 acres and his son, Isaac, with 128 acres. The Hanover tax lists did not begin again until 1782 and Jeremiah is missing. Isaac was still there with 319 acres and 9 white tithables, including his son John. Jeremiah served in the Revolutionary War in Capt. William Campbell's Company under Lt. Daniel Trigg and Alexander Cummings. In May 1774 Court Orders, Bedford Co., Virginia, Jeremiah Burnett was paid 8.6.6 for service in Capt. William Campbell's Company under Lt. Danile Trigg and Alexander Cummings. On 7 June 1774, Montgomery County, Virginia, Grants under the Royal Land Company by order of the Council (the charge was 3 pounds per 100 acres), Jeremiah Burnett surveyed 256 acres on Middle ford of Holston River joining lands of James Thompson, where he now lives. In the 31 March 1781, Court Orders, Bedford Co., Virginia, Jeremiah Burnett is listed in Lt. Triggs Company of Militia in Revolutionary War. Enlisted in Bedford Co. under Capt. Wm. Campbell. (This may refer to the 1774 record.)3

Major Life Events

     John Burnett [II] was born circa 1660 at Old Rappahannock Co., Virginia.1 He married Amy Gatewood, daughter of John Gatewood and Amy ?, before 1702 at Essex Co., Virginia.2 John died before 21 May 1718 at Essex Co., Virginia.1

Children of John and Amy:

Narrative

     John was born on Piscataway Creek where his father had settled. Old Rappahannock Co. was abolished in 1692 and this area became South Farnham Parish, Essex Co.

     When his father died intestate, John, as the oldest son, would have inherit his father estate by the laws of primogeniture after a portion was set off for his mother, Lucretia. In August 1691, there were some problems between John and his mother, perhaps regarding their share of John Senior's estate. John Junr. may have taken over more than his share. This may be why Lucretia named her only other son, Thomas Junr. as the executor of her will. John owned a tobacco plantation and along with his brother Thomas Junr. was in the tobacco importing and exporting business.3

     John owned a tobacoo planation and was in the business, with his brother Thomas, importing and exporting tobacco. John and Thomas owned at least one ship and were in and out of the Virginia Colonies by way of the Rappahannock River that flowed into the Atlantic Ocean. On three occasions, indented servant boys imported by John Burnett II, were brought into court to establish their ages and thereby their time of indenture. They were: in 1699, Thomas Reed, age 12 years; in 1700 Thomas Dudding, age 14, and in 1702 John Rice/Price?, age 9 years. When they became of age or their indenture ended, John Burnett, their master, was to give each an allotment of corn for planting and new clothes to start a new life in a new country. Dudding and Rice came together on the same ship before 1700, as in 1704, John was granted a Certificate for 500 acres for importing 10 persons into the Colony. The two boys were on that list.4

     John evidently did not know that his wife was pregnant with another child, Jeremiah, when he wrote his will as he is not mention nor were there any mention that his wife was expecting. The accounting of the estate of his son, Joseph, who died in 1771 in Essex Co., said "By articles inventoried and not sold which was his brother Jeremiah claims." This establishes Jeremiah as a son of John.

     John made a will on 17 September 1717 at Essex Co., Virginia. The abstract John's will is dated 17 Sept. 1717, in Dorman's abstracted and compiled Essex County, Virginia Records. However it also says that the will was proved 21 May 1717, and the bond of Amey Burnett as executrix of John Burnett also is dated 21 May 1717. There would appear to be something wrong with one of these dates. Bork in her book The Burnetts and their Connections gives the later date as 21 May 1718 which is probably the correct date.

     Will of John Burnett of Essex County, being sick and weak of body, dated 17 Sept. 1717.
     Unto my dear & loving wife, Amey Burnett, one Negro man Will

     John Burnett [I] was born before 25 December 1610 at Aberdeen, Scotland. John was christened at St. Nicholas Parish on 25 December 1610 at Aberdeen, Scotland.1 He married Lucretia Johnston, daughter of Andrew Johnston and Janet Matheson, circa 1657 at Old Rappahannock Co., Virginia.1 John died in February 1686 at Old Rappahannock Co., Virginia.1

Children of John and Lucretia:

Narrative

     John Burnett is listed among "Persons of Quality" at age 24 aboard the ship Abraham of London, Mr. John Barker, Master, bound for Virginia, arriving 24 October 1635. This may have been a first visit to Virginia to survey the situation prior to bringing his own ship with supplies from England and Scotland prior to receiving the warrant from the King. The earliest known land patent to John was on 23 May 1637 to John Burnett, Merchant of Edinborough, 150 acres in the upper county of New Norfolk.2

     On 2 July 1638, King Charles I granted a license from Greenwich, England to John Burnett, a warrant in trade in Virginia, to wit: "Warrant from the King to the Governor of Virginia or other officers whom it may concern for John Burnett of Aberdeen, the sole merchant of our Kingdom of Scotland, that hath supplied the plantations of Virginia and become Our tenant there, and his factors to have free commerce and traffic between Scotland and Virginia" upon paying the usual customs and entering into bond to unlade anywhere other thatn in the Ports of Scotland. The cargo, which John arranged to ship to Scotland, was primarily tobacco. One of the records of trading between Aberdeen and Virginia paid 1.00 for his anchorage. No doubt the Burnett ships returning home to Virginia carried a variety of Scottish goods as well as those of the European countries with which Aberdeen had strong trading links.3

     On 28 December 1668, Thomas Gaines deeded 365 acres of land "for diverse good causes and valuable consideracons me thereunto moveing" to John Burnett. The 365 acres was part of a patent of 730 acres.4 On 15 May 1691, this land was surveyed at the request of Jno Burnett, Son to the within Jno. Burnett and described "beginning at the great leaning Red Oake above ye land of Hold by ye Maine Pocoson of Piscattaway Creeke being the beginning of ye said Patent, and runing thence North 11d E. 220 poles to a red and white Oak on ye North side a branch, thens S. 88 d. E. 190 poles to a red Oake by a Path; thence N.W. 287 poles to two Cornr: red Oakes on a levell; thence South West 128 poles to ye tow white Oakes by a Path; thence S. 21 d. 15 m. W. 268 poles to ye siad Pocoson to three Maples, and thence down alongst ye said Pocoson its severall courses to ye place it began."5

     It would appear that John Burnett did quite well and could be considered among the upper class of the Colony. The will of his wife, Lucretia, contained many luxury items that would be used by a lady of the upper class.6

     John sons, John II and Thomas Junr., also took part in the importing and exporting of goods, primarily tobacco.

     In her book, Bork state that she believes that John became ill, perhaps even wounded by Indians, in the later part of 1685. By 3 March 1686, he had died and his estate was ordered inventoried.

Major Life Events

     Charles Ford was born on 14 February 1807 at Buckingham Co., Virginia.1 He married Johy Grizzle or Grissel on 13 June 1825 at Knox Co., Tennessee.2,3,4 Charles died in July 1894 at Ellington, Missouri, at age 87.5

Narrative

     Charles Ford went first to Kentucky according to a letter written to Charles by his brother Elisha Ford. Based on family records in a file folder for Patriot James Ford Jr., grandfather of Charles, found at the DAR Library in Washington, DC, on census notations therein, Charles evidenly lived in Alabama for a period from at least 1832 through 1847 as his children born in this period are indicated as being born in Alabama. There also seems to be a conflict on marriage dates for Charles. The DAR papers indicate that he married Iphey Grizzle/Grissel in 1827 in Jackson Co., Alabama. Knox Co. Marriages 1792 to 1900 by d'Armand lists a Charles Ford married to Ithy (Johy) Grizzle on June 13, 1825. He eventually went to Missouri.

Major Life Events

     James Ford [Sr.] was born circa 1708 at Manakin Town, Virginia.1 He married Ann Bondurant, daughter of Jean Pierre Bondurant and Ann Tanner, in 1728 at Henrico or Goochland Co., Virginia.2,3,4 James died circa 1810 at Buckingham Co., Virginia.1,5,2

Children of James and Ann:

Narrative

     At the time of his birth, Manakin Town was in Henrico County, in 1728 it became Goochland County, in 1749 it becamd Cumberland County, and since 1777 it has been Powhatan County.

     James Ford was granted 1600 acres in Albemarle Co., Virginia. He sold his home place in King William Parish, Cumberland County (now Powhatan County) in 1751 to Thomas Posser and by his deed 200 acres to his daughter Mary Ford Agee (now married). Between 17 December 1751, and 28 February 1761, he moved up the James River to his grant of 1600 acres in Albemarle Co., Virginia, Tittetson Parish. Tilletson Parish, Albemarle Co. was then cut off to form Buckingham Co. in 1761. On 28 February 1761, he deeded 100 acres to Ann Chastain "for good causes and valuable considerations."6

     James Ford fought under George Washington in Washington's first military engagement at the Battle of Great Meadows which is in that part of the Ohio Valley that is now in Pennsylvania. George Washington wrote in a ltter to his brother John Augustine Washginton on 31 May 1754: "Three days ago we had an engagement with the French, that is, a party of our men with one of theirs. Most of our men were out upon other detachments, so I had scarcely 40 men remaining under my command, and about 10 or 12 Indians; nevertheless we obtained a most signal victory. The battle lasted about 10 or 15 minutes, with sharp firing on both sids, till the French gave ground and ran, but to no purpose. There were 12 killed of the French, among who was their commander, and 21 prisoners … P. S., I fourtunately escaped without any wound, for the right wing, where I stood, was exposed to and received all of the enemy's fire … I heard the bullets whistle, and, believe me, there is something charming in the sound. " James was wounded in the eye with a musket ball and in 1770 was awarded a pension by the House of Burgesses.

     From DAR file folder for James Ford Jr. we find the following information on James Ford Sr. -- French & Indian War 1754: "In the Journals of the House of Burgesses of Virginia 1770-1772, page 31, we find the following: Tuesday the 29th of May to George III 1770, A petition of James Ford was presented to the house and read; "setting forth, that the petitioner being in the service of the Colony, at the Battle of the Meadows in the year 1754, received a wound in his right eye, by a musket ball which deprived him of sight thereof and that he is growing old, and become week [sic] and therefore praying the House to take his condition into consideration and grant relief. Ordered, that the said petition be referred to the consideration of the Committee of Public Claims; and that they do examine the matter thereof, and report the same, with their opinion thereupon to the House." -- Page 49, Wed. the 6th of June to George III 1770. Resolved, that it is of the opinion of this Committee, that the Petition of James Ford, late a soldier in the service of the Colony, under the command of Col. Washington, is reasonable; and that he ought to be allowed the sum of five pounds for his present relief; and the future sum of five pounds per annum during his live in consideration of the would he received at the Battle of the Meadows and his being thereby rendered incapable of getting necessary substance."

     James also is on the DAR records has a patriot having supplied bacon to the Army during the Revoluntionary War.

     Revolutionary Public Service Claims: -- This is to certify that the following is a true copy of a Certificate issued to James Ford, Sen'r for supplies furnished for the use of the Army during the Revolutionary War, which said Certificate is now deposited in the manuscript division of the Virginia State Library, Richmond, Virginia, and designated "Buckingham County Public Service Claims." -- Buckingham County 22 lb Bacon @ 9d is 0.16.6 "Received of James Ford, Sen'r Twenty Pounds Bacon at Nine Pence per lb. Specie in Sixteen Shillings & Six Pence. Given under my hand this 21st May 1781." Thomas Anderson, D.C.P.

     Like his father, James was involved in several land deals. He sold 95 acres of land on 20 March 1731 to James Robinson. Then two months later he purchased 95 acres on the south side of the James River in Goochland County from Peter Buirit. His largest was a purchase of 1600 acres in Albermarle County on 17 January 1747/48. He deeded 200 acres in Albermarle County to his daughter Mary and her husband James Agee on 31 October 1751 "for in in consideration of the love and affection which he bears to … his daughter and son-in-law." He sold 200 acres on 17 December 1751 in Cumberland County to Thomas Prosser. Then on 28 February 1761 he gave 100 acres "for good causes and valuable considerations to Ann Chastain" (his daughter).

     According to a tax list that can be found in the Virginia State Library, James Ford Sr. was recorded as living in the home of Stephen Ford of Buckingham Co., Virginia, in his old age.2 Therefore, it is believed that he died in Buckingham Co.

     Jean Pierre Bondurant was born on 18 July 1677 at Génolhac, Gard, France.1 He married Ann Tanner, daughter of Edward Tanner [Sr.] and Mary Hatcher, circa 1708 at Manakin Town, Virginia.1,2 Jean died before 25 January 1734/35 at Manakin Town, Virginia.1,3,2

Children of Jean and Ann:

Narrative

     Jean was also known as John Peter.

     Jean Pierre was first baptised a Huguenot, then at the age of seven rebaptised a Catholic in order to preserve his right to inherit family property. With the Revocation both of his parents, and his grandfather and step-grandmother renounced their Huguenot faith and were "newly converted" Catholics.

     He was orphaned and left in the guardianship of his cousin, Andre Bondurant who was an apothecary and also the mayor of Génolhac. In September 1697, with Andre's consent, Jean Pierre's property, the mills at l'Aribal and Calquières inherited from his parents, were sold. Jean Pierre left France and arrived in Aarau, Switzerland in February 1697/98 where he joined his maternal uncle, Guillaume Barjon, Pastor of the Huguenot refugee Church there.

     On October 3, 1697, Jean Pierre recanted the Catholic faith and became a Huguenot again. The following is recorded in the congregational record:
The 3rd of October 1697, Seigneur Jean Pierre Bondurant, apothecary, presented himself in front of us, claiming that he was extremely affected by the fault he committed in his youth, which was to attend the worship of the Roman [Catholic] Church; showing his repentance by asking God to forgive this sin and after he claimed that he would live and die in our Holy Religion, he was admitted into the peace of the Church and to participate in the Holy Sacraments.
He signed this present deed along with us: Henry Malbois and Pierre Brochet, both hat makers who took refuge in the town of Aarau, and undersigned by myself:
[signed by]
Barjon
refugee Pastor
JP Bondurant
Henry Malbois
Brochet4


     Because Jean Pierre had left France with money from the sale of his mills, he did not appear on the Swiss charity records as did the Barjons and most refugee Huguenots. Being financially independent also shielded him from scrutiny and perhaps enabled him to buy his first land when he later went to Virginia.5

     He was listed as a "fugitive from the Kingdom because of religion" in 1712. This late date is not significant, as such listings were normallly late; and his father's cousin was Consul General in charge of the listings.

     In 1699, in the company of Pastor Barjon and other refugees, he went to Karlshafen, Germany. There is no record of his travel from Karlshafen to England, but he was among Huguenot refugees arriving at the mouth of the James River in Virginia on 20 September 1700 aboard the ship Ye Peter and Anthony which had sailed from England. This was the "second transport" of Huguenots from London.

     The immigrants were taken up the James River in smaller boats as far as the shoals (present day Richmond.) They went overland to Manakin Town, where they joined the "first transport" settlers who had occupied a deserted Monacan Indian village near Fine Creek the previous year. Jean stayed with the colony until 1701 and then, as a single man, went elsewhere looking for more opportunity. He practiced medicine in Henrico County (part of which later became Goochland County) for many years.6

     Jean Pierre's grandfather was a Doctor of Law and was apparently successful. His father, Jean Pierre Bondurant, Sieur de Cougoussat, Advocate, did not seem to be as successful as he was in debt when he died. At one time, Jean Pierre, the immigrant, was forced to accept public assistance from the Church of Rome. He was apprenticed to his father's cousin, Andre, a Master Apothecary, where he learned enough medicine to be accounted a Doctor in the Colonies in Virginia.

     In 1704, the Huguenot men petitioned to become citizens of the colony and by an act passed in 1705, they, including Jean Pierre, were granted citizenship by the Governor and House of Burgesses.6

     Jean Pierre obtained 200 acres of land on Old Town Creek, near present Matoaca, across the Appomattox River from Petersburg. He sold that on 29 Dec 1708 to John Wilson Sr., acknowledged in court 1 June 1709. In 1711 he registered a cattle mark with the Virginia governor. On March 24 he purchased, from the King of England, 400 acres on the south side of the James River located on Jones Creek and Matthews Branch in Henrico County, later part of Goochland County. In 1729, sons Peter and John were listed as tithables on this land, but the father does not appear on the tithables lists until 1730. This seems to indicate that the parents were living elsewhere and the sons had come ahead to prepare the new land. This land was divided among his sons in his will in 1734. Jean Peire was elected to the Vestry of King William Parish Church, but died before he could take office.7

     It is not known if he was married more than once and, if so, which children belong to each wife. A wife Ann, the mother of his son Peter, is mentioned in his will. Many researchers had thought that his wife was Ann Faure but this appears incorrect. She may have been Ann Tanner. The will of Mrs. Mary Tanner, Albermarle Co., Virginia, in the 1760s, left $1 to her daughter Ann Bondurant. Whether this is the widow of Jean Pierre has not been proven. Also, the marriage date cannot be confirmed. The date shown is given by some researchers but it has never been proven.

     In 1990 the Bondurant Family Association erected a fence and placed a commemorative plaque at the posited graves of Jean Pierre and Ann Bondurant. The graveyear is located on Birdsong Lane (Road No. 1217) near Powhatan, in Powhatan County, Virginia. The plaque reads:
To the glory of God and in memory of Jean Pierre
Bondurant and his wife Ann. Born in Génolhac,
France 18 July 1677, Jean Pierre (John Peter)
Bondurant escaped to Switzerland in 1697, and
reached Jamestown with other Huguenots in 1700.
Trained as an apothecary, he practiced medicine
in Virginia where he married Ann. Members of
King William Parish. He died near Manakin
1734/35. Their five children were John, Peter,
Joseph, Ann and Frances.
          Erected 1990 by descendants.


     Jean made a will on 25 September 1734. The will of John Peter Bondurant, Gouchland County, Virginia:
In the name of God Amen, I John Peter Bondurant, being sick and weak by of good sound disposition mind and memory, all praise be given to God for it, and now minding to settle my worldly estate which it has please God to bestow upon me before I depart this life: I do make and appoint this my last will and testament in manner and form following:
