John and his wife Sarah lived in Goochland County, Virginia, and later in Cumberland County. He deeded 200 acres of land to his son, John Peter III of Albemarle County, on 9 March 1758.

     Sarah was the widow of Robert L. Moseley. The Bondurant Family Association Newsletter reprinting information from The Huguenot Magazine, Vol. 25, page 173 gives the marriage date as 1836 but indicates date and place not proved.

     Grinnell, in his manuscript, indicates that John died in Manakin in 1744. A pedigree chart in The Huguenot, Publication No. 30, submitted by Mary V. Bondurant Epling, indicates that John died about 1744 in Buckingham County, but before 1776, and that his death was recorded in Powhatten County. A GEDCOM received from Ruby Talley Smith indicated he died in 1774.

Narrative

     In 1786, Peter Ford joined the McKnitt Company on the move to Kentucky. His sons Joel and John and his father and brothers James and Boaz remained in Buckingham Co., Virginia.

     They reached a camp site on the rise above Little Laurel River just two miles south of London, Kentucky and being so near their destination they apparently relaxed their security in celebration of their sucessful journey.

     On the night of October 3, 1786, a band of Miami Indians attacked the McKnitt Company. According to Z. F. Smith, History of Kentucky (1886) in October 1786 a large number of families known as the McKnitt Company were surprised new Laurel River and over twenty killed dispersed or taken prisoner.

     The above information is from the Genealogy of Hill Family 1978 by L. Henry Hill as printed in The Huguenot Publication.5

     Tirey Ford, in his manuscript on the Ford family6, gives the following account of the incident:

     Grandfather (Jacob Ford) was at the upper end [of the valley] on guard when he suddenly heard the guns firing, women and children screaming, and Indians yelling in the camp. He fired several times at what he supposed were Indians. Then a man came along supporting his mother and said, 'Don't shoot again. I say several of our people shoot our friends. Help me out of here with my wife and mother.' So they went up the valley into the mountains. The next day, he (Jacob) tried to find his way back to Kentucky, but he was unsuccessful and for two days and nights was without food.

     On his way he met a party coming out to see about the defeat and to bury the dead. They found that a great many had been killed and that the Indians had taken away and destroyed all the property. Grandfather found his father and half-brother, Laban, in the camp. His father was lame and unable to walk, having white swelling in his knee. The morning of the fight he slipped down a bank and hid himself in a drift. After the Indians had left, he crawled out, calling Jacob and Obediah. Laban answered, he being up a tree where he had climbed to escape from the Indians. Obediah had been badly wounded by the Indians. They took him prisoner, carried him a few miles from camp and tomahawked him, since he was unable to keep up. Anna and Polly, age eighteen and eight years respectively, were taken prisoners to Sandusky, where they were separated. Anna was kept prisoner for a time. At last a white prisoner came to here and said if she would pledge herself not to betray him under any circumstances, he would assist her in making her escape. Consequently she prepared to leave. He carried her accross the river and told her how to find the white settlement. She traveled all night. The next day she came to a house where she was fed and concealed from the Indians for a time. She finally made her way to Quebec. Her brother, Joel Ford of Virginia, having heard of her by letter, went after her on horse back. On returning to Virginia, she married and reared a large family.

     Polly was adopted in an Indian family and carried to Vincennes, where she remained seventeen years. She married while there and had a son. See Mary (Polly) Ford for more information on Polly.

     The following information concerning Peter Ford is from a file on Patriot James Ford Jr. located at the DAR Library, Washington, DC. Revolutionary Public Service Claims: This is to certify that the following is a true copy of an entry in a booklet deposited in the manuscript division of the Virginia State Library, Richmond, Virginia, designated 'Buckingham County Public Service Claims.' Being an account of disbursements for supplies furnished for the use of the Army during the Revolutionary War. 'At a Court held for Buckingham County the 9th day of Dec. 1782. (Pursuant to an Act of Assembly entitled 'An Act for Adjusting Claims for Property impressed or taken for Public Service' The Court preceeded to receive and adjust the claims of different claimants produced to them in Specie as herafter mentioned.) -- page 30, "To Peter Ford . . . To 410 lbs Grass Beef @ 2d Dr. 3.8.4" Richmond, Virginia, A true copy. F. W. Sydnor, Record Searcher.7

     Conflicting information in the Huguenot Publication indicates that Peter had no offspring by his second wife and that Laban, Sarah (Sally), and Mary (Polly) were offspring by his third wife, the widow Brooks.8 Clark in her The Maxeys of Virginia also indicates that Laban, Sarah, and Mary were children of the widow Brooks.9 However, Tirey Ford in his Tradition of the Ford Family indicates that Sarah was a child of Peter's first wife, Judith Ford, and that Laban and Mary were children of his second wife.6

     Peter made a will on 4 March 1798 at Madison Co., Kentucky. In his will he refers to fifty acres of land, "I give to my daughter Polly, if she is ever recovered from the Indians." Polly was recovered shortly after her father's death and married John Prewitt on September 1805 in Madison Co., Kentucky.5

     His will was proved on 5 October 1801.10

Children of Pierre and Francoise:

Child of Pierre and Françoise:

Narrative

     Pierre was a physician and attorney of Génolhac. He, his wife Françoise de Brion, and daughter-in-law Gabrielle Barjon signed the oath of renunciation of the Huguenot faith in October 1685. Gabrielle's husband, abjured a few days later.2

     The infamous St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre, August 24, 1572, ended the lives of some 20,000 Huguenots in Paris and throughout France. Orchestrated by Catherine de Médici, widow of Henry II of France, a rabid Catholic, was a mass killing of Huguenots who came to Paris for the wedding of her daughter Marguerite to Henry of Navarre, a Huguenot. Catholics fell on the Huguenots throughout France, though Henry (the bridegroom) and the Prince de Condé were spared. Later the Huguenot leader Admiral Coligny was assassinated. The final agony was "the War of the Three Henrys" from 1585 to 1589, where three nobles named Henry fought for the French throne. The winner, Henry of Navarre, a Huguenot, was crowned Henry IV of France. Because he faced strong Catholic opposition, Henry became a nominal Catholic. In an effort to bring peace to the country and guarantee religious freedom to his former Huguenot co-religionists, he issued the Edict of Nantes in 1598. The religious tug-of-war continued in spite of Henry's efforts. His grandson, Louis XIV, believed himself threatened by the strength of the Protestant Huguenots, and steadily began to repress them by quartering the French Dragoons in their homes. Finally in 1685, Louis XIV declated the Huguenot religion outlawed (Revocation of the Edict of Nantes). Its ministers were required to convert to Catholicism or leave the France within 15 days. Believers must renounce or abjure the Huguenot faith in front of a Catholic priest and become members of the Catholic church. Those who abided by the Revocation were called nouveau converti (New Converts) or "N.C." Suspicion followed the N.C.'s for the remainder of their lives. Protestant guerillas (the Camisards) punished them, their former Huguenot neighbors saw them as traitors, and Catholics view them with suspicion.3

     Fearing some legislation against the landed Huguenots, the Bondurant family had their oldest grandson, Jean Pierre, the immigrant to Virginia, baptized as a Catholic in 1684 when he was only seven years old. From that time Jean Pierre was nominally a Catholic and was schooled by them. His parents died as N.C. and were given Catholic last rites. Presumably, Dr. Pierre Bondurant, Françoise de Brion, Jean Pierre Bondurant, and Gabrielle Barjon were all buried in the Catholic cemetery in Génolhac, though no grave markers have ever been located.4

     Georg Willert was born circa 1550 at Schwaigern, Württemberg.1 Georg died between 1611 and 1617 at Schwaigern, Württemberg.2

Children of Georg and an unknown spouse:

Narrative

     Georg was also known as Jerg or Old Georg.

     The earliest record that mentions the Willheit family is a 1539 tax record in Schwaigern.3 Variations in the spelling of the surname are Wylhart, Wilheitt, Wilheyt, and Wilhatt in that tax record. Those taxed in the 1539 record were Michael Wylhart, Jerg Wyhart, Jacob Wilheitt, Anthoni Wilheyt, and Quirin Wylhatt. It is impossible to directly connect any of these to the ancestry of Johann Michael Willheit, the immigrant to Virginia.

     The earliest known ancestor of Johann Michael is his great-great grandfather Georg Willert, born circa 1550. He is mentioned in a 1610 court case as "Old Georg Willert" at age sixty.

     In 1617, Agnes Willert, daughter of deceased George Willert, married Martin Ebelmann. It is believe that she was the daughter of this Georg Willert which would indicate that Georg died between 1611 and 1617.

Children of Hans and Maria:

Narrative

     Records of Oberbaldingen, Baden are among those of the parish at Öfingen where early records are fragmented. There are no marriage or burial records prior to 1651, and no records exist for the period 1622 to 1651. Nonetheless, the Hengsteler line can be traced in existing parish records back to Hans Hengsteler who lived there about 1642. That there is no mention of the Hengsteler surname prior to this, implies that Hans came to Oberbaldingen about the time of his marriage to Maria Küntzler (Küntzlin).2
