Children of Diana and Luke Stansbury

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 in Virginia circa 1742.1 He married Sarah ?. Hosea died after 1830 in 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 in Sevier Co., Tennessee. Enumerated were:
          1 White Male 80-90 (Hosea)
          1 White Female 60-70 (probably wife of Hosea).7

Children of Adam and Missy Batey or Patey ?

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.
