The following information was sent to me in July 1997 by Gary D. Duke of Freeman, MO. He researched the McGinnis family for 15 years beginning in 1982. He is a descendant of William W. Jr.


Strother J. McGinnis had done fairly well in Missouri. Strother had married Elizabeth McAfey (Massie) in Franklin County, Kentucky, on 9-26-1828. They had nine children whom they named: Thomas, Mary, William H., Elizabeth, Laura, Cseo (a boy), Charles Taylor, California (a girl), and Strother Jr. Strother Sr. moved his family to Warren County, Missouri, in 1848 and Strother Sr. died there in 1854. Elizabeth continued living in Warren with her children until sometime after 1870 when she died.

* * * * *

Strother J. McGinness' will was probate entry number 254 in Warren Co., MO. It lists his wife Betsy L. McGinness, sons Dickson and Thomas M. Mcginness, executors. It was signed May 12, 1853 and was probated on June 2, 1853. Witnesses were Sandy Pratt and John Welch. . Sec; Presley Oaks, Milton Pratt, Thomas M. McGinness. Exec; Dickson D. McGinness.

* * * * *.15,1,16 Strother Jefferson McGinnis was also known as Strether McGinnis A Codocil to John Lillard's will mentions "...the children of my daughter, Elizabeth McGinnis, dec.... To wit: Strether [sic] J. McGinnis, Thomas McGinnis, Harding McGinnis, Sarah Ann McGinnis, late Saunders, dec."3

Strother Jefferson McGinnis and Elizabeth "Betsy" Lee Massie appeared in the census of 1830 at Southern Division, Franklin Co., Kentucky, USA;
Not sure if this is my Strother McGinnis or not. He would have been 23 at this time, which matches and would have been married 2 years. His wife Eliz. Massie would would have been about 22 at the time, though the census only shows 1 white female aged 15-19. His first son, Dickson, would have ben about 1 at the time, which matches the one free white male under 5.

Elizabeth "Betsy" Lee Massie Her tombstone had the following on it: Elizabeth L. wife of Strother McGinnis. Died Jan. 29, 1881 aged 72 years 2 months 1 day.

The following was sent to me by Marilyn McGinnis Davis on March 22, 1998:

Another reference is made to a Stephen Massie, who might have been a brother
to Elizabeth Massie. I came to that same conclusion. He evidently came to
Texas with Taylor, Strother S. and their families. He is buried in the
McGinnis plot in College Mound Cemetery, Kaufman County, Texas.

In a letter to Francis Kamp McGinnis from Ephraim Stout Lillard of Washington D.C. dated 1938 he stated Elizabeth Lee Massie was a cousin of General Robert E. Lee and that she was the daughter of Thomas Massie and Nancy Lee (Berry) Massie, and that she was the sister of Stephen Massie.

Elizabeth "Betsy" Lee Massie and Strother Jefferson McGinnis appeared in the census of 1830 at Southern Division, Franklin Co., Kentucky, USA;
Not sure if this is my Strother McGinnis or not. He would have been 23 at this time, which matches and would have been married 2 years. His wife Eliz. Massie would would have been about 22 at the time, though the census only shows 1 white female aged 15-19. His first son, Dickson, would have ben about 1 at the time, which matches the one free white male under 5.

Elizabeth "Betsy" Lee Massie appeared in the census of 15 June 1870 at Gasconade Township, Laclede Co., Missouri, USA;
This is not Elizabeth (MASSIE) MCGINNIS. The two Elizabeths are In the household of Benjiman STEARNS. I thought that this was Mary Elizabeth with her grandmother Elizabeth Lee MASSIE MCGINNIS. However, further research on the McGinnis Family Tree on Ancestry.com indicates that the older Elizabeth was Mahala (MCGINNIS) STEARNS' mother. They are next door to a James M. and Nancy Ann MCGINNIS household. James M. is apparently the brother of Mahala and a son of Elizabeth. The younger Elizabeth, may be a niece of Mahala (granddaughter of the older Elizabeth).

Elizabeth "Betsy" Lee Massie appeared in the census of 21 July 1870 at Hickory Grove Township, Warren Co., Missouri, USA;
Is this a different Betsey? She seems too young to be Elizabeth (MASSIE) MCGINNIS, but the children seem to match her three youngest, and "Captain" MASSEY may be her brother Strother, who was a riverboat captain. However, Elizabeth and her brother Strother were apparently born in Kentucky, not in Virginia as is indicated in the census enumberation.

     William W. McGinnis was born circa 1782 at Mercer Co., Kentucky, USA; per Find A Grave: "Some records have his birth year as 1784."5,6,7 He married Elizabeth "Betsy" Lillard, daughter of Capt. John Lillard Jr. and Aggah (Agnes) Chiles, on 23 February 1807 at Franklin Co., Kentucky, USA; per document submitted SAR APP #315355: "So the marriage you were seeking was of Elizabeth Lillard (Called Betsy) to William McGinnis, on Feb. 23, 1807. Attest Daniel Weisiger. Bondsman: John Lillard (her father). Recorded in Franklin Co., KY, Court Records at Frankfort, Ky." This letter is signed by Ephraim Stout Lillard (compiler of Lillard Genealogy). The same DAR App also cites: Frankling County, Ky., Marriages - compiled by Mrs. A. W. Burn: "William McGinnis & Betsy Lillard - 2-23-1807 - John Lillard."8,1,9,10,11,12
William W. McGinnis died in 1842 at Pike Co., Missouri, USA.6
William W. McGinnis was buried in 1842 at Burial location unknown; from Find A Grave website:
     Birth:      1782, Mercer County, Kentucky, USA
     Death:      1842, Pike County, Missouri, USA
     Some records have his birth year as 1784
     William fought in the War of 1812 along with his brothers Thomas and John and they all served under General Jackson at the Battle of New Orleans.
     The following information was sent to me in July 1997 by Gary D. Duke of Freeman, MO. He researched the McGinnis family for 15 years beginning in 1982. He is a descendant of William W. Jr.
     I have visited Franklin and Anderson Counties and I found they consist almost entirely of steep hillsides. The major crop, then and now, is tobacco, which can be grown in small plots. William and Betsy lived in that portion of Franklin County which was split off in 1827 to create Anderson County. In 1835 they made a major move west to Pike County, Missouri.
     Pike County abuts the Mississippi River north of present St Louis. Lincoln County is just to the south and Montgomery County is just to the west. William's sister Mary had married his first cousin Samuel and they lived in Lincoln before Samuel died. Mary then lived only a few miles west into Montgomery. William's other first cousin Greenberry lived in Lincoln County when William moved to Pike. There were also several nephews and a couple of distant cousins living in the same general area.
     William W. was 51 years old when he moved his family to Missouri. Though I assume he lived adequately in Pike County, records suggest that he did not prosper. He lived on a 5 1/2 acre plot in southwestern Pike and owned and farmed another 18 1/2 acres Ony a short distance away. By 1840, he was in poor health and owed money to many creditors who were pushing him for payment. Perhaps because he was in poor health, or perhaps just to get the creditors off his back, on 10-3-1840, William W. decided to sell all his possessions for $1 to his son Strother. In fairness to William, it appears the reason for this action was probably poor health because in the deed of transfer, he instructed Strother to dispose of the possessions for the best value and then to pay off William's debts as best possible. This deed of sale amounts to a Will so I will describe it fully.
     William W. McGinnis assigned all his land and possessions to his son Strother J. McGinnis with instructions that Strother is to do whatever necessary to pay off William's creditors. The reason given is that William is "indebted to many persons which I cannot pay". The deed mentions land owned by William as being 18 1/2 acres located between McDonald, Smith, Hough and Brown and another 5 1/2 acres between Watts & Brown "being where I now reside". Personal property mentioned is: 2 bay horses, 1 black cow, 1 red cow, 12 head of hogs, 6 beds & bedding, 6 bedsteads, 3 tables, 1 clock, 1 press, 12 chairs, 1 carry, 2 shovel plows, and "my crop of corn & tobacco grown upon the two farms above specified and upon the farm rented from Jesse Hughes by W. W. McGinnis and myself". (note this deed identifies William W. and another W. W. McGinnis who is co-renting land from Hughes. This other W. W. is his son) The deed also directs Strother to "first of all" pay debts on which Strother has co-signed as security for Strother's brothers William and Hardin. Then Strother is next to pay debts on which Strother has co-signed as security for William W. Lastly, Strother is to pay any other debts "generally".
     Strother did as he was instructed. On 8-2-1841, Strother sold the 18 1/2 acres for $200. At that time William W. was still living in Pike, but on 4-1-1842, Strother sold the land where William W. had been living, the 5 1/2 acres with house for $206.58. There is no further mention of William W. or Betsy so I assume they had died in Pike before April, 1842. I do note that the sale of the 5 1/2 acres did not include "l5 feet square in the southeastern corner". This sounds like a burial plot where William W. and Betsy are probably buried.
     After the death of William W. McGinnis Sr. and his wife in Pike County, their children began to move away from Pike.

     William Woodrow McGinnis, Sr. was born in 1782 and died in 1842. On 23 Feb 1807, he married Elizabeth (Betsy) Lillard (1789-1837). He fought in the War of 1812 along with his brothers Thomas and John and they all served under General Jackson at the Battle of New Orleans. William and Betsy lived in that portion of Franklin County which was split off in 1827 to create Anderson County. In 1835 they made a major move west to Pike County, Missouri. Pike County abuts the Mississippi River north of present St Louis. Lincoln County is just to the south and Montgomery County is just to the west. William's sister Mary (6B4) and her husband Samuel (5C) lived in Lincoln County, MO. After Samuel died, Mary moved a few miles west into Montgomery County, MO. William's cousin, Greenbury (4), lived in Lincoln County, MO. There were also several nephews and a couple of distant cousins living in the same general area.
     William and Betsy lived on a 5 1/2 acre plot in southwestern Pike County, MO located between Watts & Brown and owned and farmed another 18 1/2 acres a short distance away located between McDonald, Smith, Hough and Brown. By 1840, he was in poor health and owed money to many creditors who were pushing him for payment. On 3 Oct 1840, William sold all of his possessions for $1 to his son, Strother. He instructed Strother to dispose of the possessions for the best value and then to pay off William's debts as best possible. Personal property mentioned is: 2 bay horses, 1 black cow, 1 red cow, 12 head of hogs, 6 beds & bedding, 6 bedsteads, 3 tables, 1 clock, 1 press, 12 chairs, 1 carry, 2 shovel plows, and "my crop of corn & tobacco grown upon the two farms above specified and upon the farm rented from Jesse Hughes by W. W. McGinnis (his son) and myself". The deed directs Strother to "first of all" pay debts on which Strother has co-signed as security for Strother's brothers William and Hardin. Then Strother is next to pay debts on which Strother has co-signed as security for William W. Lastly, Strother is to pay any other debts "generally." On 2 Aug 1841, Strother sold the 18 1/2 acres for $200. At that time William was still living in Pike County. On 1 Apr 1842, Strother sold the 5 1/2 acres with house where William had been living, for $206.58. There is no further mention of William or Betsy so it is assumed that they had died before April 1842. The sale of the 5 1/2 acres did not include "15 feet square in the southeastern corner." This is most likely a burial plot where William and Betsy are buried.
     William and Betsy had the following children:
      a. Strother Jefferson McGinnis (1807-1853)
      b. Hardin McGinnis (1809-?)
      c. John Lillard McGinnis (1810-1876)

     The Will of John Lillard, Jr.
     In the name of God, amen, I John Lillard Senr of the county of Anderson and the state of Kentucky, being now diseased in body but of sound mind and memory, and calling to mind the mortality of human life, do make, constitute and ordain this my last will and testament in the following form, letters and figures.

Also, another piece of five acres adjoining it, together with all the articles that I purchased under ex.

Lillard, for the purchase of a horse from him the said $100.00 to be paid the said Thomas in money which
shall constitute their entire portion of all my estate that might be coming to them, and should they each die leaving no issue of their body, then the above legacy to return to my estate.
     ITEM 9 I give to my son, Thomas J. Lillard, and his heirs forever a sum of money that shall make him equal including what is charged him in my account book with my son Christopher Lillard.

     Greg,
     I have many documents on the McGinnis family (land abstracts, few marriage pages, etc). I have will of John McGinnis (d. May 1818), will of John (d. 1814), and will of Thomas McGinnis (m. Nancy Tenly). My gr-gr grandparents were William McGinnis and Rachel Odell McGinnis. William was first m. to Martha "Patsy" McGinnis, d/o Jesse and Agnes Hicks McGinnis.
     If you need some info, I am happy to share. I can't guarantee I have what you are looking for, but I do have a lot. You can e-mail me at my home address.9 GAV-5.

Thomas T. McGinnis per McGinnis email [2018]: " From the website you sent me, it appears that your ancestor Thomas T. McGinnis was a son of Thomas McGinnis and Polly Ann Patterson. For what it is worth, several records I have seen only list four brothers, John, James, William, and Neal. So, I am a bit confused...and maybe you have better knowledge than I have. I wonder if two families might have been conflated into one and the children commingled."10

Thomas T. McGinnis      from DAR Application 213649: I recently obtained a copy of a DAR application which lists a Thomas MCGINNIS "of Pennsylvania" as the Revolutionary War ancestor. The application is No. 213649, submitted by Mrs. Edith H. MCGINNIS Hainline of Mt. Sterling, KY on April 9th, 1925. These older applications are not considered all that trustworthy as the standard of proof required back then wasn't very rigorous.
     I'm looking for a Thomas MCGINNIS with a son William. My William was born abt 1782, probably in VA and married Elizabeth LILLARD on 23 Feb 1807 in Franklin Co., KY. The age of this Thomas is right, but I'm not sure if he's the right one or not.
     I would appreciate hearing from anyone who might have more information on this Thomas MCGINNIS (with a son named William).
     Here is the essence of the application: [Quote] I Edith H. McGinnis Hainline being of the age of eighteen years and upwards, hereby apply for membership in the Society by right of lineal descent in the following line from Thomas MCGINNIS who ws born in Pennsylvania on the 19th day of Dec., 1743 and died in (near Harrods Station) Kentucky on the ___ day of ___, 1848 (sic). His place of residence during the Revolution was Washington Co., PA.
     I was born in Williams town County of Grant, State of Kentucky.
     1. I am the daughter of John F. MCGINNIS born 1829 died 1899 and his wife Mary A. HILL born 1840 died 1922 married 1869.

Capt. John Lillard Jr. per Kate McGinnis Pieper.

Capt. John Lillard Jr. and Ephraim Wallace Lillard Sr. Lillard [1991, pp. 824-826] "It has been stated that John Lillard, Jr., and his brother Ephraim Lillard, I, were the outstanding fighters of Anderson County (then Franklin County). In those days they had meetings of the military forces in each county. The one in Anderson County took place on one of the Salt River bottoms. While to all intents and purposes it was a meeting for military training, in fact it was a meeting in which the consumption of liquor and fist fights predominated. After these fights it was the rule for the victor to thumb out the eye of his victim. It is sufficient to say that John and Ephraim Lillard had perfect eyesight up until the time of their deaths.175

John Lillard and his brother Ephraim Lillard apparently had several disagreements among themselves and with other family members. Both were members of the Salt River Baptist Church in Franklin County. In those days the church was a forum for the judgment of personal conduct and members were often appointed to decide matters dealing with complaints brought by one member against another. In October, 1801, "having trouble over their father's estate," thirteen members were appointed to reconcile the two men. They found against John Lillard, "but from his acknowledgement & marks of repentance [he] is acquitted." They made no findings against "Ephraim Lillard who said he never refused to let John see the papers." In November, John Lillard was excluded from the Church for "using harsh letters, leaving in an abrupt manner."
Agnes Lillard was charged by Ephraim Lillard with excess drinking in April, 1803, but the charge was reconsidered and found unsupported when heard by the Church in June. Later, in August, 1803, Ephraim Lillard was excluded from the congregation. Brethren Garvey and Jacob Elliston complained in May, 1806, about Agnes Lillard for going to a dance. However, she apparently continued in good standing because in June the clerk noted in the minute book that "Sister Lillard gives satisfaction."177

John Lillard, Jr., was restored to the fellowship in June, 1809. In July, 1811, Jacob Elliston charged John Lillard reported a falsehood, but the minutes note that the Church believed it was thru mistake and was satisfied. However, when Lillard and Elliston subsequently charged each other in November, 1811, the Church found that John Lillard, Jr., was "no more one of us" and was apparently excluded.178

Both John and Ephraim Lillard were apparently restored to the fellowship because the list of members at the March, 1812, meeting includes Christopher Lillard, John Lillard, Agnes Lillard, Thomas Lillard, Garland Lillard, Lillard's Dick, Lillard's Lavina [slaves], Leodicia Lillard, Ephraim Lillard, Lillard's Lucretia [slave], Pegga Lillard, Martha Lillard and Susan Lillard.179

A story told about John Lillard by Christopher Marion Lillard to Marion W. Ripy of New York, was as follows:180

John Lillard's home on Salt River was located on a hog-back, to the north and to the south were springs. The cattle and salves used the spring to the south while the northern spring was used by the white people of the house. Someone poisoned the southward spring so John Lillard went to a soothsayer to find out about it. My grandfather in telling me about this, walked up the hillside. He said that John Lillard was told by the soothsayer that if he would go on a
certain night to this pair of bars at eleven o'clock, two men would climb over the bars and they were the people who had poisoned the spring. Just before we got to the place where the bars then were, my grandfather told me they went to the bars on the night named and he indicated by pointing, and said: 'they were buried there.' It is sufficient to say that no more cattle or slaves were lost."11
In Capt. John Lillard Sr.'s will dated 24 February 1800 at Mercer Co., Kentucky, USA, Capt. John Lillard Jr. was named as an heir; Capt. John Lillard died testate and his Will, along with the Codicils to it and related account books, constitute a lengthy account of his wealth and various family relationships. His Will provides ('Will of John Lillard," February 24, 1800, (recorded Aug., 1801) Mercer County, KY, Will Book 2, pp. 260-262, Office of the County Court Clerk, Harrodsburg, KY.):

     Capt. John Lillard Sr. was born on 3 November 1737 at Culpeper Co., Virginia, USA; per Lillard [1991:II:759:fn97] "His date of birth may have appeared as 1735 on an earlier grave marker of Capt. John Lillard in the Lillard Cemetery located on the Wallace Wilkinson Farm, Mercer County, Kentucky, because the date appears in transcriptions of cemetery markers prepared by the Harrodsburg Historical Society. However, the current DAR grave marker shows no birthdate and the origin of the 1735 date is unknown and no other eveidence establishing the birthdate of John Lillard it known to exist. Stout Lillard reported his birthdate as November 3, 1737, a date which also is of uncertain origin, see, Lillard, p. 181.2,1,3 He married Susannah Ball, daughter of Captain Samuel Ball and Ann Catherine Tayloe, on 22 December 1758 at Culpeper Co., Virginia, USA;      per Lillard [1991:I:34:fn1]: "Stout Lilard's undocumented statement of ... the purported marriage of Susannah Ball to Capt. John Lillard, ahve been the subject of continuing controversy amont family members and genealogist for the sixty-three years since publication of Lillard in 1928."
     per Lillard [1991:II:759]: "Stout Lillard stated that Captain John Lillard married first on December 22, 1758, to Susanna Ball (b. 1738; d. 1782), youngest daughter of samuel and Anne (Taylor) Ball of Culpeper County, Virginia. Although it is clear from a number of deeds recorded in Culpeper County, Virginia, that Susannah was the given name of the wife of John Lillard, no competent evidence exists to prove that her surname was Ball and Stout Lillard cited none in his work. Uncorroborated family tradition remains the only source for the proposition."

Reference: from Lillard [1991], pp 764ff: During the Revolutionary War, John Lillard served as a captain commanding a company of Virginia militia. He is known to have served during 1776 and 1777, received payments in 1778 and possibly served in other years of the War. (Auditor of Public Accounts, Militia & Contingent Account Book 1776-1778, Revolutionary War Volume 23, contains the following entry, "June 22, 1778, Lillarard, Capt, John for Culpeper Militia 2/8/2 [meaning payment of 2 pounds, eight shillings and 2 pence]." Microfilm Miscellaneous Reel 986, page 674, VSL&A.) In September, 1780, John Lillard supplied forty-one and one-half bushells of Rye and in December, 1781, furnished two hundred and fifty pounds of beef for use by the American Army in support of the Revolution. (Revolutionary War Public Service Claims, Court Booklets and Lists, Culpeper County, VA, Court Booklet I, pages 33 and 20 (Certificates of John Lillard, John Strother, assignee); Microfilm Positive Reel 1, VSL&A.) It is a tradition in the family that at the beginning of the Revolutionary War George Washington requested Captain John Lillard to form his own company of Virginia Militia for service, and permitted him to select his own men. This Captain John Lillard did, accepting as eligibles in his company only those men who were such expert marksmen that they could shoot out the eye of a squirrel.
     Captain Lillard commanded a company of draftees from Culpeper County who began service for a term of three months in February, 1776. The Virginia militiamen from Culpeper spent this tour of duty at Albemarle Barracks. (Anthony Jenkins, Pension No. S. 16426, U. S. Revolutionary War Service, claim dated Sept. 3, 1832, as abstracted in Mrs. Carl W. McGhee, Historical Records of Harrodsburg (Mercer County) formerly known as Old Crab Orchard, Lincoln County, Kentucky (no pub., no date), Vol. II, PartI, pp. 64-65.)
     According to the account of one member of Captain Lillard's command, Lillard and his men were present at the Battle of Brandywine, Pennsylvania, on September 11, 1777. (Owen Campbell Pension No. W.6620, U.S. Revolutionary War Service, claim dated Sept. 18, 1832, as abstracted in John Frederick Dorman, Virginia Revolutionary Pension Applications, (Washington, D.C., 1971) Volume 15, pp. 22-23.) Owen Campbell recalled that in the fall of 1777 the company had formed at the courthouse at Culpeper and marched to Pennsylvania to join Washington's Army shortly before the battle was fought. He stated Captain Lillard' s company served as part of the guard to the baggage train during the battle. The command marched to Chestnut Hill north of Philadelphia after the battle and remained there until discharged. Campbell served about three months according to his statement. A hint of the hardship and poor supply of the army is supplied by Campbell's observation that the weather was very cold when he crossed the Susquehanna River returning home and that many of the soldiers were without shoes.
     Another, and somewhat contradictory, account of the campaign is provided by John Bradley who served under John Lillard, also apparently in the fall of 1777. (John Bradley, Pension No. S 1792, U.S. Revolutionary War Service, Claim dated October 9, 1832, as abstracted in John Frederick Dorman, Virginia Revolutionary Pension Applications, (Washington,D.C., 1964), Volume 9, pp. 49-50.) Bradley remembered the officers of the company as Capt. John Lillard, Lieut. Richard Haney and Ensign James Kirtley. The company, attached to the regiment of Col. Pendleton and Major William Roberts marched from Culpeper to Fredericktown, Maryland and then to Lancaster, Pennsylvania. They then marched, "[T]oward Philadelphia, above which they joined Washington's army while Gen. Howe [the British commander, Gen. William Howe] had possession of it [presumably meaning Philadelphia]. He noted that Col. Crafford then commanded the regiment and Pendleton served as Lieutenant Colonel. Bradley, and presumably the command, returned home when Washington's army went into winter quarters having served more than three months.
     How do the latter two accounts of service by Capt. Lillard's command correlate to versions of Washington's campaign around Philadelphia presented by noted historians? The fall, 1777, campaign began when the British commander, General William Howe, disembarked his army from ships in Chesapeake Bay after a sea voyage from New York. (James Thomas Flexner, George Washington in the American Revolution (1775-1783), (Boston, Mass. and Toronto, Canada: Little Brown & Company, fifth printing 1967), pp. 219-226.) He intended to take Philadelphia, the capital of the new nation. The first battle commenced at Chad's Ford on Brandywine Creek with Washington spreading his army to cover the north side of various fords up and down the stream. Washington anticipated the British would occupy the Continental Army by a show of strength opposite the Americans on the south side of Chad's Ford. The main British force would then attempt to trap the Continental Army by making a flanking maneuver crossing one of the upstream fords and marching quickly to the American rear.
     To counter this strategy, Washington intended to cross the creek, defeat the British decoy force, and then turn on the main flanking force of the British Army. However, despite his precautions in posting units in numerous positions at the fords and elsewhere, faulty intelligence failed to warn Washington of the crossing upstream of the British flanking force and the British nearly succeeded in surrounding the Americans. This dashed Washington's plan to cross the stream. He had no option but to organize a hasty retreat to avoid being trapped by the British flanking force.
     The Battle of Brandywine was considered a defeat for the Continental Army and the Americans retired to Chester, Pennsylvania. Although protecting the capital at Philadelphia was important, Washington felt the top priority was to preserve his army and not risk its destruction defending the capital. The army retired for several days rest toward Warwick Furnace in the Pennsylvania foothills of the Allegheny Mountains, near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in an area of extensive Quaker settlements. The British, whose primary objective was destruction of the Continental Army, followed rather than occupy the capital. After a few days Washington moved closer to Philadelphia and maneuvered along the Schuylkill River to position himself for an attack on the enemy rear should they cross the river to occupy Philadelphia. However, a British force under Lord Cornwallis slipped by him and occupied the capital on October 1, 1777.
     Although Cornwallis had occupied Philadelphia, the main British force under General Howe camped at Germantown, Pennsylvania to the north of the capital. Washington learned that the British at Germantown had not fortified their positions and decided to attempt a surprise attack. The attack commenced in the pre-dawn hours of October 4, 1777, with the result that the surprised British were driven back through the town to their camp. Although a British counterattack left the enemy in possession of the field and Philadelphia, the engagement at Germantown was considered an American victory. After the Battle of Germantown, and subsequent action in support of the hopeless defense of Fort Mifflin and Fort Mercer on the Delaware River approaches to Philadelphia, Washington's Army went into winter quarters near the capital, at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, in December, 1777.
     Were Captain Lillard and his command present at the Battle of Brandywine, or the Battle of Germantown, or both engagements? Interestingly, the accounts of both Campbell and Bradley can be interpreted to mean Captain Lillard's company joined Washington's Army shortly before a battle. Campbell stated it was Brandywine. Bradley's account related that he joined Washington's army above Philadelphia after the British had taken the city. Since the city was taken on October 1, then Bradley's account could place the command joining the army in time for the engagement at Germantown which was fought on October 4. Curiously, Bradley's account does not mention any engagements at all.
     Without further evidence as to the whereabouts and operations of John Lillard's command, the two accounts cannot be reconciled. (Although the author has not had the opportunity to do so, perhaps review of pension applications of other soldiers attached to Cot. Pendleton's regiment might yield important information. Also, a review of the order of battle and the positions of the various militia regiments at both Brandywine and Germantown might reveal the presence (or absence) of Pendleton's or Crafford's command to which, according to John Bradley, John Lillard's company was attached.) It is difficult to discount Owen Campbell's specific recollection of the Battle of Brandywine, although it is possible the engagement in which he remembered participating was actually Germantown. Further, given the extensive operations of this campaign to prevent the capture of the capital, the shortage of troops under Washington's command and his heavy reliance on militia forces, it is unlikely that John Bradley saw absolutely no action during his months service ending with Washington's winter encampment at Valley Forge. It is, however, probable that the memories for detail of both men were dimmed by the passage of approximately fifty-five (55) years during the period from 1777 until 1832 when their statements were made.
     Following the Revolution, John Lillard moved from Culpeper County, Virginia, across the mountains to the Lincoln District in the western regions of Virginia, in the area which would later become the state of Kentucky. The preparations for the move are evidenced by the conveyance to others of the lands John Lillard and Susannah owned in Culpeper County. On Sept. 20, 1782, John Lillard and Susannah his wife conveyed by deed to George Gray, 163 acres on Hazel River in Culpeper County, Virginia, for £54. In another deed, John Lillard and Susanna his wife conveyed to Colonel William Champ for £150 one hundred and fifty acres in Culpeper County "whereon the said John Lillard now lives which he hath sold and confirmed to Colonel William Champ." Both of these instruments were witnessed by John Slaughter, Henry Hill, Benjamin Lillard and Robert Slaughter.
     Captain John Lillard and his family probably ended their journey at Fort Harrod, in the Lincoln District of Virginia (which is now Harrodsburg, Mercer County, Kentucky). He had apparently acquired rights to all or a portion of several treasury warrants for land in Kentucky and he proceeded to enter upon the land and have it surveyed.
     For rights to land in Kentucky it was necessary for the claimants to obtain their patents from Virginia, and their rights were of three kinds, namely, those which arose from military service, from settlement and pre-emption, or from warrants from the treasury. The military rights were held by officers or as their representatives as a reward for services performed in the French and Indian or the Revolutionary War. The settlement and pre-emption rights arose from occupation of the land. Every man who before 1778 had remained in
Kentucky one year, or raised a crop of corn, was allowed to claim of four hundred acres at the price of two pounds, and a preemption adjoining it of one thousand acres for two hundred pounds.'24 Every man who had only built a cabin, or made any improvements by himself or others was entitled to a preemption of 1000 acres where such improvement was made.
     In March, 1780, the settlement and preemption rights ceased and treasury warrants were afterwards issued, authorizing their possessor to locate the quantity of land mentioned in them wherever it could be found vacant in Virginia. Treasury warrants were obtained by purchase from the treasury of the Commonwealth of Virginia and, after issuance, all or part of the warrant was frequently assigned to another person in return for a payment of money or other consideration.
     Once the holder, or assignee of a holder, of a treasury warrant had located available land, an entry or notation of this was made in the land office. There was usually one land office in each county and the person making the entry took out a copy of the location. The claimant then had to obtain a survey of the claimed land. The surveyor's plat and certificate of such survey had to be returned to the land office within three months after the survey was made where it was recorded.
     A copy of the record had to be taken out in twelve months after the return of the survey and delivered to the assistant register of the land office in Kentucky. After filing in the state land office the record remained on file for six months, that prior claimants of the same land might have time and opportunity to enter a caveat, and prove their better right. If no caveat was entered in that time, the surveyor's plat and certificate were sent to the land office at Richmond, Virginia, and three months more were allowed to have the patent or deed to the claimed land returned to the claimant naming him as the owner.
     It appears that John Lillard did not obtain his land based upon a grant for military service or pursuant to preemption as a settler, but rather as the assignee of all or part of various treasury warrants originally granted to others. It is presumed that he bought these rights from the original holders of the warrants. Once he arrived in what was then Lincoln County, Virginia (now Mercer County, Kentucky) he located land along the Salt River, had it surveyed and obtained deeds to the land described in the surveys. The deed for the firs of these parcels to be surveyed recites the name of the original holder and date of issuance of the warrant, the fact that John Lillard is an assignee of the original holder, and the date of the survey made at the request of John Lillard after his entry upon the land:125
Patrick Henry, Esq., Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia, TO ALL TO WHOM THESE PRESENTS SHALL COME GREETING:     KNOW YE that by virtue and in consideration of part of a Land Office Treasury Warrant No. 1191 issued the 2nd day of March, 1782, there is granted by the said Commonwealth unto John Lillard a certain Tract or Parcel OF LAND, containing Five hundred acres, by survey, bearing date the 25th day of August, one thousand seven hundred and eighty-four lying and being in the county of Lincoln on the West side of Salt River adjoining Arnolds survey of four hundred and fifty-eight acres on the Westwardly side and a survey made for the heirs of Thomas Grant on the North and bounded as followeth to wit-Beginning at a dogwood and two white oak trees corner to the said Heirs and with their line North twenty poles to a sugar dogwood and black oak tree corner to Arnold and with his line North twenty-five degrees West two hundred and twenty-eight poles crossing a branch to three white oaks thence West three hundred and thirty-six poles crossing the dividing ridge of Chaplains fork and Salt River to a poplar mulberry and walnut tree near a drain thence South two hundred and twenty poles crossing a branch to a walnut sugar and cherry tree near a large branch thence east two hundred and eighty-six poles crossing two branches and the dividing ridge passing the heirs' corner four hundred and twenty-eight poles to the Beginning, with its' appurtenances to Have and TO HOLD the said Tract or Parcel of Land, with its appurtenances to the said John Lillard and his heirs forever.

     ("Deed from Commonwealth of Virginia to John Lillard", Kentucky State Land Office, Bk. 10, p. 254, as quoted in, Lillard, p.187-188.)
In addition to these lands, on June 26, 1787, Ann Lindsey sold to John Lillard, Sr., 400 acres in Mercer County for L120 current money of Virginia.127 Ann Lindsey was the widow of Joseph Lindsey who was killed in the battle of Blue Licks. She afterwards married James McGinty, and is the same Ann McGinty mentioned in Collins' History of Kentucky as a woman of great energy and self-reliance, who brought the first spinning wheel to Kentucky, and made the first linen (from lint of nettles) and the first linsey (from nettle lint and buffalo wool) made in Kentucky. She is buried in the cemetery beside old Fort Harrod, at Harrodsburg, Kentucky.
     Susannah Lillard, wife of Captain John, died either in childbirth or shortly afterward, when their youngest child David Lillard was born on November 18, 1782. Whether this was enroute to Kentucky from Virginia or whether it was shortly after their arrival at Harrodsburg is not known.
     Marion W. Ripy of New York, told the following story which had been handed down through the family about Captain John Lillard:
     After he had located in Kentucky one of his brothers, a preacher in Virginia, came out to visit him. It was in the fall of the year and the night he arrived one of Captain John Lillard's slaves, a young colored girl, was stolen or kidnapped by the Indians. More with the idea of protecting the members of his household than to recover the negro girl, John Lillard and his preacher brother got their guns and started to make a circle around the house. This circle was enlarged each time. Finally, feeling that they were safe, the preacher brother told John that they had better bend their knees in thanksgiving to the Lord. Whereupon Captain John Lillard replied "That's very fine, but you'd a damn-sight better keep your eyes open." (The preacher brother referred to herein was probably William Lillard. See, the record of William Lillard, in the chapter on William Lillard.)
     Captain John Lillard married a second time to Mrs. Anne (Moore) Thomas, widow of Capt. Robert Thomas, who had eleven children. Anne Moore Thomas was the daughter of Colonel Francis Moore, of Orange County, Virginia, who was a Colonial officer commissioned under King George of England. Anne Moore Thomas Lillard was a sister of Sarah Moore Spencer, wife of Joseph Spencer, also a Colonel of Orange County, Virginia. Capt. Robert Thomas and Anne Moore were married in Orange County, Va., on April 9, 1757. Another of her sisters, Mary Moore married William Price. Her brothers were Reuben, Francis and Bernard Moore.
     Church minutes reveal that John Lillard was an early member of the "Baptist Church of Christ on Salt River in Franklin County, constituted (on the Philadelphia Confession of Faith with its exceptions) on the third day of February, 1798... " The Rules of Decorum adopted by the church included resolutions that: no member would be received into the Church without a unanimous vote; a majority of the church could exclude a member; any member believing in a general redemption from hell (if they cannot be reclaimed) would be excluded; any member "suffering their children to go to the dancing school while under their tuition" shall be excluded; and any member "who shall attach himself to the Masonic Lodge," shall be excluded. Among the numerous members in the year 1798 were John Lillard, Senr., John Lillard, Jr. and his wife Agnes Lillard, Lillard's Pat (a slave) and Christopher Lillard. (The identity of Christopher Lillard is not clear. He could not be the son of Capt. John Lillard, for Lt. Christopher Lillard died in 1794. Further, Gen. Christopher Lillard, son of John Lillard, Jr., was born in 1795 and was only three years old at this time.)
     Capt. John Lillard died May 30, 1801, and was buried on the old Joseph Lillard farm on Salt River. This property was for many years owned by the late Col. John "Jack" McGee, a descendant of Capt. John Lillard. It is now known as Wilkinson Farm and is owned by Governor Wallace Wilkinson, current Governor of Kentucky. Although the only grave marker now standing it the DAR marker for Capt. Lillard, the cemetery is also the last resting place of several other pioneer Lillards whose grave markers have disappeared. Other burials are evidenced by the statement of Stout Lillard that Capt. John Lillard's grave was ' at an unknown age bove the others, a little apart from rest…" Mercer County cemetery records compiled in the 1950's by the Harrodsburg Historical Society show additional markers which are not visible today."5

Revolutionary War Service, claim dated Sept. 3, 1832, as abstracted in Mrs. Carl W. McGhee, Historical Records of Harrodsburg (Mercer County) formerly known as Old Crab Orchard, Lincoln County, Kentucky (no pub., no date), Vol. II, PartI, pp. 64-65.)
     According to the account of one member of Captain Lillard's command, Lillard and his men were present at the Battle of Brandywine, Pennsylvania, on September 11, 1777. (Owen Campbell Pension No. W.6620, U.S. Revolutionary War Service, claim dated Sept. 18, 1832, as abstracted in John Frederick Dorman, Virginia Revolutionary Pension Applications, (Washington, D.C., 1971) Volume 15, pp. 22-23.) Owen Campbell recalled that in the fall of 1777 the company had formed at the courthouse at Culpeper and marched to Pennsylvania to join Washington's Army shortly before the battle was fought. He stated Captain Lillard' s company served as part of the guard to the baggage train during the battle. The command marched to Chestnut Hill north of Philadelphia after the battle and remained there until discharged. Campbell served about three months according to his statement. A hint of the hardship and poor supply of the army is supplied by Campbell's observation that the weather was very cold when he crossed the Susquehanna River returning home and that many of the soldiers were without shoes.
     Another, and somewhat contradictory, account of the campaign is provided by John Bradley who served under John Lillard, also apparently in the fall of 1777. (John Bradley, Pension No. S 1792, U.S. Revolutionary War Service, Claim dated October 9, 1832, as abstracted in John Frederick Dorman, Virginia Revolutionary Pension Applications, (Washington,D.C., 1964), Volume 9, pp. 49-50.) Bradley remembered the officers of the company as Capt. John Lillard, Lieut. Richard Haney and Ensign James Kirtley. The company, attached to the regiment of Col. Pendleton and Major William Roberts marched from Culpeper to Fredericktown, Maryland and then to Lancaster, Pennsylvania. They then marched, "[T]oward Philadelphia, above which they joined Washington's army while Gen. Howe [the British commander, Gen. William Howe] had possession of it [presumably meaning Philadelphia]. He noted that Col. Crafford then commanded the regiment and Pendleton served as Lieutenant Colonel. Bradley, and presumably the command, returned home when Washington's army went into winter quarters having served more than three months.
     How do the latter two accounts of service by Capt. Lillard's command correlate to versions of Washington's campaign around Philadelphia presented by noted historians? The fall, 1777, campaign began when the British commander, General William Howe, disembarked his army from ships in Chesapeake Bay after a sea voyage from New York. (James Thomas Flexner, George Washington in the American Revolution (1775-1783), (Boston, Mass. and Toronto, Canada: Little Brown & Company, fifth printing 1967), pp. 219-226.) He intended to take Philadelphia, the capital of the new nation. The first battle commenced at Chad's Ford on Brandywine Creek with Washington spreading his army to cover the north side of various fords up and down the stream. Washington anticipated the British would occupy the Continental Army by a show of strength opposite the Americans on the south side of Chad's Ford. The main British force would then attempt to trap the Continental Army by making a flanking maneuver crossing one of the upstream fords and marching quickly to the American rear.
     To counter this strategy, Washington intended to cross the creek, defeat the British decoy force, and then turn on the main flanking force of the British Army. However, despite his precautions in posting units in numerous positions at the fords and elsewhere, faulty intelligence failed to warn Washington of the crossing upstream of the British flanking force and the British nearly succeeded in surrounding the Americans. This dashed Washington's plan to cross the stream. He had no option but to organize a hasty retreat to avoid being trapped by the British flanking force.
     The Battle of Brandywine was considered a defeat for the Continental Army and the Americans retired to Chester, Pennsylvania. Although protecting the capital at Philadelphia was important, Washington felt the top priority was to preserve his army and not risk its destruction defending the capital. The army retired for several days rest toward Warwick Furnace in the Pennsylvania foothills of the Allegheny Mountains, near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in an area of extensive Quaker settlements. The British, whose primary objective was destruction of the Continental Army, followed rather than occupy the capital. After a few days Washington moved closer to Philadelphia and maneuvered along the Schuylkill River to position himself for an attack on the enemy rear should they cross the river to occupy Philadelphia. However, a British force under Lord Cornwallis slipped by him and occupied the capital on October 1, 1777.
     Although Cornwallis had occupied Philadelphia, the main British force under General Howe camped at Germantown, Pennsylvania to the north of the capital. Washington learned that the British at Germantown had not fortified their positions and decided to attempt a surprise attack. The attack commenced in the pre-dawn hours of October 4, 1777, with the result that the surprised British were driven back through the town to their camp. Although a British counterattack left the enemy in possession of the field and Philadelphia, the engagement at Germantown was considered an American victory. After the Battle of Germantown, and subsequent action in support of the hopeless defense of Fort Mifflin and Fort Mercer on the Delaware River approaches to Philadelphia, Washington's Army went into winter quarters near the capital, at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, in December, 1777.
     Were Captain Lillard and his command present at the Battle of Brandywine, or the Battle of Germantown, or both engagements? Interestingly, the accounts of both Campbell and Bradley can be interpreted to mean Captain Lillard's company joined Washington's Army shortly before a battle. Campbell stated it was Brandywine. Bradley's account related that he joined Washington's army above Philadelphia after the British had taken the city. Since the city was taken on October 1, then Bradley's account could place the command joining the army in time for the engagement at Germantown which was fought on October 4. Curiously, Bradley's account does not mention any engagements at all.
     Without further evidence as to the whereabouts and operations of John Lillard's command, the two accounts cannot be reconciled. (Although the author has not had the opportunity to do so, perhaps review of pension applications of other soldiers attached to Cot. Pendleton's regiment might yield important information. Also, a review of the order of battle and the positions of the various militia regiments at both Brandywine and Germantown might reveal the presence (or absence) of Pendleton's or Crafford's command to which, according to John Bradley, John Lillard's company was attached.) It is difficult to discount Owen Campbell's specific recollection of the Battle of Brandywine, although it is possible the engagement in which he remembered participating was actually Germantown. Further, given the extensive operations of this campaign to prevent the capture of the capital, the shortage of troops under Washington's command and his heavy reliance on militia forces, it is unlikely that John Bradley saw absolutely no action during his months service ending with Washington's winter encampment at Valley Forge. It is, however, probable that the memories for detail of both men were dimmed by the passage of approximately fifty-five (55) years during the period from 1777 until 1832 when their statements were made.20

Capt. John Lillard Sr. began military service circa 1778 at Culpeper Co., Virginia, USA, Captain of Militia Company.

Capt. John Lillard Sr. Following the Revolution, John Lillard moved from Culpeper County, Virginia, across the mountains to the Lincoln District in the western regions of Virginia, in the area which would later become the state of Kentucky. The preparations for the move are evidenced by the conveyance to others of the lands John Lillard and Susannah owned in Culpeper County. On Sept. 20, 1782, John Lillard and Susannah his wife conveyed by deed to George Gray, 163 acres on Hazel River in Culpeper County, Virginia, for £54. In another deed, John Lillard and Susanna his wife conveyed to Colonel William Champ for £150 one hundred and fifty acres in Culpeper County "whereon the said John Lillard now lives which he hath sold and confirmed to Colonel William Champ." Both of these instruments were witnessed by John Slaughter, Henry Hill, Benjamin Lillard and Robert Slaughter.

Captain John Lillard and his family probably ended their journey at Fort Harrod, in the Lincoln District of Virginia (which is now Harrodsburg, Mercer County, Kentucky). He had apparently acquired rights to all or a portion of several treasury warrants for land in Kentucky and he proceeded to enter upon the land and have it surveyed.

For rights to land in Kentucky it was necessary for the claimants to obtain their patents from Virginia, and their rights were of three kinds, namely, those which arose from military service, from settlement and pre-emption, or from warrants from the treasury. The military rights were held by officers or as their representatives as a reward for services performed in the French and Indian or the Revolutionary War. The settlement and pre-emption rights arose from occupation of the land. Every man who before 1778 had remained in
Kentucky one year, or raised a crop of corn, was allowed to claim of four hundred acres at the price of two pounds, and a preemption adjoining it of one thousand acres for two hundred pounds.'24 Every man who had only built a cabin, or made any improvements by himself or others was entitled to a preemption of 1000 acres where such improvement was made.

In March, 1780, the settlement and preemption rights ceased and treasury warrants were afterwards issued, authorizing their possessor to locate the quantity of land mentioned in them wherever it could be found vacant in Virginia. Treasury warrants were obtained by purchase from the treasury of the Commonwealth of Virginia and, after issuance, all or part of the warrant was frequently assigned to another person in return for a payment of money or other consideration.

Once the holder, or assignee of a holder, of a treasury warrant had located available land, an entry or notation of this was made in the land office. There was usually one land office in each county and the person making the entry took out a copy of the location. The claimant then had to obtain a survey of the claimed land. The surveyor's plat and certificate of such survey had to be returned to the land office within three months after the survey was made where it was recorded.

A copy of the record had to be taken out in twelve months after the return of the survey and delivered to the assistant register of the land office in Kentucky. After filing in the state land office the record remained on file for six months, that prior claimants of the same land might have time and opportunity to enter a caveat, and prove their better right. If no caveat was entered in that time, the surveyor's plat and certificate were sent to the land office at Richmond, Virginia, and three months more were allowed to have the patent or deed to the claimed land returned to the claimant naming him as the owner.

It appears that John Lillard did not obtain his land based upon a grant for military service or pursuant to preemption as a settler, but rather as the assignee of all or part of various treasury warrants originally granted to others. It is presumed that he bought these rights from the original holders of the warrants. Once he arrived in what was then Lincoln County, Virginia (now Mercer County, Kentucky) he located land along the Salt River, had it surveyed and obtained deeds to the land described in the surveys. The deed for the firs of these parcels to be surveyed recites the name of the original holder and date of issuance of the warrant, the fact that John Lillard is an assignee of the original holder, and the date of the survey made at the request of John Lillard after his entry upon the land:125

Patrick Henry, Esq., Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia, TO ALL TO WHOM THESE PRESENTS SHALL COME

Capt. John Lillard Sr. In addition to these lands, on June 26, 1787, Ann Lindsey sold to John Lillard, Sr., 400 acres in Mercer County for L120 current money of Virginia.127 Ann Lindsey was the widow of Joseph Lindsey who was killed in the battle of Blue Licks. She afterwards married James McGinty, and is the same Ann McGinty mentioned in Collins' History of Kentucky as a woman of great energy and self-reliance, who brought the first spinning wheel to Kentucky, and made the first linen (from lint of nettles) and the first linsey (from nettle lint and buffalo wool) made in Kentucky. She is buried in the cemetery beside old Fort Harrod, at Harrodsburg, Kentucky.

Susannah Lillard, wife of Captain John, died either in childbirth or shortly afterward, when their youngest child David Lillard was born on November 18, 1782. Whether this was enroute to Kentucky from Virginia or whether it was shortly after their arrival at Harrodsburg is not known.

Marion W. Ripy of New York, told the following story which had been handed down through the family about Captain John Lillard:

After he had located in Kentucky one of his brothers, a preacher in Virginia, came out to visit him. It was in the fall of the year and the night he arrived one of Captain John Lillard's slaves, a young colored girl, was stolen or kidnapped by the Indians. More with the idea of protecting the members of his household than to recover the negro girl, John Lillard and his preacher brother got their guns and started to make a circle around the house. This circle was enlarged each time. Finally, feeling that they were safe, the preacher brother told John that they had better bend their knees in thanksgiving to the Lord. Whereupon Captain John Lillard replied "That's very fine, but you'd a damn-sight better keep your eyes open." (The preacher brother referred to herein was probably William Lillard. See, the record of William Lillard, in the chapter on William Lillard.)

Captain John Lillard married a second time to Mrs. Anne (Moore) Thomas, widow of Capt. Robert Thomas, who had eleven children. Anne Moore Thomas was the daughter of Colonel Francis Moore, of Orange County, Virginia, who was a Colonial officer commissioned under King George of England. Anne Moore Thomas Lillard was a sister of Sarah Moore Spencer, wife of Joseph Spencer, also a Colonel of Orange County, Virginia. Capt. Robert Thomas and Anne Moore were married in Orange County, Va., on April 9, 1757. Another of her sisters, Mary Moore married William Price. Her brothers were Reuben, Francis and Bernard Moore.

Church minutes reveal that John Lillard was an early member of the "Baptist Church of Christ on Salt River in Franklin County, constituted (on the Philadelphia Confession of Faith with its exceptions) on the third day of February, 1798... " The Rules of Decorum adopted by the church included resolutions that: no member would be received into the Church without a unanimous vote; a majority of the church could exclude a member; any member believing in a general redemption from hell (if they cannot be reclaimed) would be excluded; any member "suffering their children to go to the dancing school while under their tuition" shall be excluded; and any member "who shall attach himself to the Masonic Lodge," shall be excluded. Among the numerous members in the year 1798 were John Lillard, Senr., John Lillard, Jr. and his wife Agnes Lillard, Lillard's Pat (a slave) and Christopher Lillard. (The identity of Christopher Lillard is not clear. He could not be the son of Capt. John Lillard, for Lt. Christopher Lillard died in 1794. Further, Gen. Christopher Lillard, son of John Lillard, Jr., was born in 1795 and was only three years old at this time.)

Capt. John Lillard died May 30, 1801, and was buried on the old Joseph Lillard farm on Salt River. This property was for many years owned by the late Col. John "Jack" McGee, a descendant of Capt. John Lillard. It is now known as Wilkinson Farm and is owned by Governor Wallace Wilkinson, current Governor of Kentucky. Although the only grave marker now standing it the DAR marker for Capt. Lillard, the cemetery is also the last resting place of several other pioneer Lillards whose grave markers have disappeared. Other burials are evidenced by the statement of Stout Lillard that Capt. John Lillard's grave was ' at an unknown age bove the others, a little apart from rest…" Mercer County cemetery records compiled in the 1950's by the Harrodsburg Historical Society show additional markers which are not visible today." between 1787 and 1801.20

Capt. John Lillard Sr. left a will on 24 February 1800 at Mercer Co., Kentucky, USA; Capt. John Lillard died testate and his Will, along with the Codicils to it and related account books, constitute a lengthy account of his wealth and various family relationships. His Will provides ('Will of John Lillard," February 24, 1800, (recorded Aug., 1801) Mercer County, KY, Will Book 2, pp. 260-262, Office of the County Court Clerk, Harrodsburg, KY.):

John Lillard, ahve been the subject of continuing controversy amont family members and genealogist for the sixty-three years since publication of Lillard in 1928."
     per Lillard [1991:II:759]: "Stout Lillard stated that Captain John Lillard married first on December 22, 1758, to Susanna Ball (b. 1738; d. 1782), youngest daughter of samuel and Anne (Taylor) Ball of Culpeper County, Virginia. Although it is clear from a number of deeds recorded in Culpeper County, Virginia, that Susannah was the given name of the wife of John Lillard, no competent evidence exists to prove that her surname was Ball and Stout Lillard cited none in his work. Uncorroborated family tradition remains the only source for the proposition."
     GA Vaut: Though this marriage, complete with date and place, has been repeated in numerous DAR publications and is shown on the home page of the Lillard Chapter of the Kentucky DAR, none of these citations carry any references to a source for the information.2,4,5,6,7,8,1,9,10
Susannah Ball died on 18 November 1782 at Harrodsburg, Mercer Co., Kentucky, USA.11,4,1

Note: 3. CAPTAIN WILLIAM2 BALL, JR. (William1), b. England, June 2, 1641; d. Lancaster county, Virginia., Sep. 30, 1694; will dat. Sep. 28, 1694; pro. Nov. 4, 1694.(*)
He m. (I.) it is said, MISS WILLIAMSON, probably Margaret or Mary, dau. of James Williamson, of Rappahannock county, Virginia. (II.) MISS HARRIS, of "Bay View," Northumberland county, Virginia. (III.) cir. 1675, MARGARET DOWNMAN, dau. of Rawleigh Downman. (BALL 14, note.)
     "It is not certainly known that Capt. Ball was thrice married; but it is impossible to ignore traditions that have any shadow of support. His marriage with Margaret Downman is beyond doubt. The other marriages have the authority of long accepted tradition. The letter of Col. James Ball (p. 31) and a number of the Ball charts give the name of the first wife as "Williamson." This Col. James was the great-grandson of Capt. William, and is entitled to some credit in the matter. However, I find no proof of the marriage of Capt. Ball with Miss Williamson, but the name Williamson is continued in the family of his sons--William 6, Richard 7, and of William 25, George 26, Williamson 105, &c., all direct descendants of Capt. Wm. Ball, supra. The tradition receives further coloring from an original deed still in the possession of the Downman family, descendants of this William. The deed, dated Nov. 2, 1675, recites that Major William Underwood, of Rapp'k County, Virginia., dec'd, gave to Margaret and Mary Williamson, daughters of Mr. James Williamson, of same county, dec'd, a tract of land in the freshes of Rapp'k River,
     "(*) In the name of God Amen. I Capt Wm Ball of the Parish of St Mary's White Chappell in the County of Lancaster in Virginia being sick and weak in body but of sound and Perfect memory Praised be ye Almighty God for the same and considering the frailty of this life being but a blast I doe make this my Last will and Testament in manner and form Following hereby Revoking and making Void all other will or Wills Formerly by me made sealed or Published. First I give my soule to God that gave it me and Commit my body to the Earth to be buried in decent order at the Discreation of my Executors hereafter named In hope and true confidence that I shall have a joyful Resurrection at the Last day through the merrits of my most dear and Precious Redeemer the Lord Jesus Christ. I give unto my Dr. wife all and every part of this two hundred seven acres of Land whereon I now Live with all the housing and appurtenances thereunto belonging and also my mill hereon standing during her Natural life and also full Power to plant make and manure for her own use a Plantation if she Please on every other Parcel of Land hereafter by me hereby given and my Will is that she bring up my dear Children untill they be sixteen years of age in Writeing Reading &c and that then they be under the tuition of my sons William and Richard, and that whenever the said mill be out of repaire my will is that my said sons William Ball and Richard Ball give their assistance to mend repaire or new build her and that they be paid for their paines as the mill earnes it. I give unto my said sons William Ball and Richard Ball all my Tract of Land Lyeing in this Neck next to Richard Cundiffs being about nine hundred and Fifty acres to be Equally divided between them Provided they aquit all their right which they or either of them may Possibly have of in and to that Divident of Land in Richmond County next above perpetua Creek being about one thousand acres on which my Quarter Plantation now is unto their two brothers Joseph Ball and George Ball then I doe give unto my said sons William Ball and Richard Ball to them and their heirs forever all and every part of the above said Nine hundred and fifty acres of Land Lying in this neck next Richard Cundiffs as aforesaid but if my said two sons William Ball and Richard Ball molest their two said Brothers Joseph Ball and George Ball in their Quiet Possession at any time or times hereafter either them or their heirs in the said one thousand acres of Land at Perpetua Creek where my Quarter now is that I then do hereby give my said two sons Joseph Ball and George Ball and their heirs all and every part and Parcel of that nine Hundred and Fifty acres before hereby given unto my said two sons Wiliam Ball and Richard Ball as aforesaid. I give unto my two sons Joseph Ball and George Ball to them and their heirs all and every part and parcell of that Devident of Land in Richmond whereon my quarter now is near the head of Perpetua Creek to be Equally Divided between them. I give unto my four sons (viz) James Ball, David Ball, Stretchley Ball and Samuel Ball to them and their heirs forever all and every part of my uper Divident of Land being sixteen hundred Acres more or Less Lying in north side thereof.
     "The widow of Major William Underwood, being in 1675 Elizbeth Combe, wife of Archdale Combe, of Rapp'k County, claimed her dower or third part of said tract. This third part, for a valuable consideration, the said Archdale Combe and Elizabeth Combe, his wife, conveyed to Capt. William Ball, of Lanc'r County, on the day above stated, the deed being recorded the following day, Nov. 3, 1675. Witnessed by Edward Crosk, Clerk Rapp'k County, and Philip Pendleton. Archdale and Elizabeth Combe signed the deed, affixing to each signature a seal in wax, which may be the crest of Williamson or Combe, i. e., "a pelican feeding her young." Motto, encircling the crest, "Sic bis quos diligo." The family of Norris, Scotland, have this crest with the moto, "Sic his qui diligunt." William Underwood was Burgess for Lanc'r Co. 1652, and Dr. Robert Williamson for Isle of Wight Co. 1663. Henry Williamson, Justice Rapp'k Co. 1680.

     "John Hall Pleasants. 1916-21. "The Gorsuch and Lovelace Families." The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, numerous articles, which were republished in 1981 as pp. 226-546 in Vol. III of Genealogies of Virginia Families by Genealogical Publ. County, Baltimore, MD (issued 1996 as Broderbund CD-162). p. 245 The record of the establishment of this little colony, stretched along the north shore of the Patapsco and made up of various members of the Gorsuch family, would appear to begin with an entry in the Maryland Land Office records which reads "July 16, 1659, Warrants granted the undersigned conditionally that they enter Rights and seat their land between this and the 25th of March next: Thomas Powell 700 acres; Walter Kickinson 600 acres; Robert Gorsuch 300 acres; Richard Gorsuch 300 acres; Howell Powell 300 acres; William Ball 500 acres; William Clapman jur. [sic jnr.] 500 acres; Richard Ball 500 acres; Thos. Humphry 600 acres; Hugh Kensey 400 acres" (Md. Patents Vol. IV, fol. 54).
     "Most of these names occur soon after in the Quaker records of the province, so that is seems quite probable that they were a little group of Quaker colonists who had come up from Virginia to take up the recently opened lands on the Patapsco in Baltimore County, which appears to have been erected into a county this same year. The Gorsuches, Powells, Claphams, Dickensons, Balls, Kinseys (Kenseys) and Humphreys are known to have come from Lancaster County, while the Todds, who came a year or two later, were from Gloucester. That the conditions in regard to entering their rights and seating their lands were complied with by the warrantees is shown by the subsequent entries in the records of the Land Office of certificates of survey and, finally, by the issuance of patents to all whose names appear in the warrant of 1659. July 28, 1659, a tract of 500 acres called "Gorsuch" was surveyed for Robert Gorsuch, planter, on the north side of the Patapsco river "respecting" (i.e., opposite) the land of Hugh Kensey on the south side of the river (Md. Patents, Vol. IV, fol. 228)...
p. 246 ...Charles Gorsuch, August 3, 1661, had surveyed for him "Whetstone Point," 50 acres comprising that part of the present city of Baltimore now occupied in part by Fort McHenry... William Ball and Richard Ball, each of whom received warrants for 500 acres of land under the warrant of 1659 and became settlers on the Patapsco, have been shown by Dr. Christopher Johnston to be the sons of Colonel William Ball of Lancaster County, the progenitor of the distinguished Virginia family of that name (Virginia Mag. Vol. VII p. 440 and Vol. VIII p. 80)*. Hugh Kinsey and Thomas Humphrey have been shown by Mr. Miles White, in his Ancestry of Johns Hopkins, to have also come from Lancaster County (Publications Southern Historical Association, Vols. IV, p. 395 and V, p. 360)...
...many if not all of these first actual settlers [those named in the Warrant of 1659] were probably a group of friends who came up together from Lancaster County and that the probable motive of their migration was religious persecution, as most of them are known to have been Quakers, and it was at this time that Virginia began to put into full effect the various repressive measures against the numerous recent converts to this sect in order to drive them out of that colony.
     "*Genealogies of Virginia Families (Genealogical Publishing County, Inc., 1981), Vol. I, 23-27.
p. 387 ...He [Charles Gorsuch] probably became a convert to Quakerism before leaving Virginia and was one of the group who removed from there to the Patapsco in 1659 to avoid religious persecution... There are a few chance references to him in several early wills. Hugh Kinsey [Kensey] of Anne Arundel County in his will dated May 2nd, 1667, leaves his sac cup to Charles Gorsuch and his heirs (Annap. Test. Proc. 2: 188)...

Capt. William (III) Ball Jr. per Jess Ball 18 Dec. 1992: "It is not positive that Wm. had 3 wives, but it is positive that he m. Margert (sic) Downman."

per A.TOWLER1 [Annette D. Towler - Nettie] Sept. 10, 1993: "Haydn's VA Genealogies....is so bad for resources, we are all wondering where he got the information. I have gotten mine from several resources, and are documented. Mary Sue Ball Wilson (a double cousin of mine) did a lot of research and so did Ethlayne E. Carter and the both have come up with the same information."

per Donald J. Tucker (CompuServe] 21 June 1995: "Mary Ball Washington (GW's mother) was the daughter of Joseph Ball and his second wife Mary Montague Johnson, a widow. This Joseph was the son of William Ball and Hannah Atherall, the founder of the VA line. Joseph's male line ended with his son Joseph. All the Ball surname lines that continued forward were from the elder Joseph's brother, William."

per "Ball Families of Virginia's Northern Neck: An Outline", compiled by Margaret Lester Hill for Mary Ball Washington Museum & Library, Inc., 1990, p.1:
"He was a Captain of militia, a Chief Justice, and a Burgess [Nina Tracy Mann, "Millenbeck, p. 7]. Children: William, Richard, James, Joseph, George, Samuel, David, Stretchley, Margaret."

per Moeller [1994]:
Born in England, he inherited Millenbeck. Captain Ball took an active part in the public affairs of Virginia. In 1687 he was appointed to lay off the boundary between Lancaster and Northumberland Counties. He was a Justice in 1680 and at various times from 1682-1688 he was a Burgiss from Lancaster County.

I have two conflicting dates of birth from Patricia Cassedy (1690) and WFT 8-2843 (1698). The 1698 date fits better with his siblings.

Henry Chiles Jr. left a will on 27 June 1746 at Amelia Co., Virginia, USA;

per Patricia H. Cassedy (21 Jul 1993): may have emigrated through Holland? as early as 1679. "Possible sister Elizabeth. He 1st mentioned 3 Dec. 1692 owning 225 acres on Crimps Creek. Added to 135 acres already owned. Petitioned for Naturalization 23/3/1702. Will 1718, probate 5/4/1734. Mentions Rebecca & children"

per WFT 14-2613: "From Haralson-Harrelson Family History by Danny K. Harrelson

Paul Haralson- He is believed to have emigrated to Virginia from
Dedmark through Holland possibly as early as 1679 at which tome as Eliza
Harralson married Franxes Dodson on February 5 in the county of
Middlesex. ONe story handed down through the years is that htey arrived
at the port of Urbanna in Middlesex in the state of Virginia in the
1670's. The Elizabeth could have been a sister to Paul. About 1680's a
nem era of immigration started which untill that time had been
monopolized by the English and Dutch. A vast tite of settlers consisting
mostly of foreign Protestant origin, started to settle the middle and
southern colonies. It was in this wave of settlers that we believe our
Paul arrived. The first mention of in the Americas appears 3 December
1692. On that date he owned 225 acres on Crumps Creek which he had
purchased from George and Ann Marr prior to the date. In addition to th
is he owned another 135 acres. In the legislative journals of the
Council of Colonial Virginia, Volume One, page 367,in the proseedings of
Tuesday, March 23, 1702, Paul Harrelson petitioned for his
naturalization. Paul paid rent roll on 360 acres lying in the Parrish of
St. Peters and St. Paul's in 1702. Paul made a will on 1718 which was
proved April 5, 1734 and mentions his wife Pebekkah Burgess. The English
Church was by law, the church of Virginia, Maryland and the Carolina's.
Paul and family attended church at St. Paul's Episcopal church in Hanover
county, Virginia. The foundation of the original church still can be
found in the woods a short distance to the west of Hanover, Virigina.
The original church was abandoned for a larger churc further weat of
Hanover onthe 1720's which still stands and is now the "Slash" Christian
church. The presont St. Paul's Episicopal church was not constructed
until after Paul's death." Paul Harrelson Sr. was also known as Paul Harralson.1

Paul Harrelson Sr. left a will on 18 August 1718 at St. Pauls Parish, New Kent Co., Virginia, USA; per Eakin [1883, p. 22]: "I Paul Harrelson of St. Pauls Parish, New Kent County in perfect memory appoint this my last will and testament.

per Lorene PRATT VAUT - Emma may have died in childbirth. on 10 August 1928 at Lindsay, Garvin Co., Oklahoma, USA.6

John Henry Roberts
Evidence for paternity of John Henry: I am now convinced that the preponderance of the evidence I have found supports the conclusion that John Henry ROBERTS (JHR, ca 1867-1928) is the youngest child of Elijah Josiah ROBERTS (EJR, 1823-1868) and his SECOND wife Luticia Frances HIGGINBOTHAM (LFH, 1836-1877). The evidence supporting this conclusion is as follows:

     1.     JHR and EJR were both in Cherokee Co., TX around the time of JHR's birth (ca 1867). JHR claimed to have been born in Cherokee Co., TX (per his children who informed his death certificate and obituary). EJR and his family were in the 1860 federal census for Shady Grove, Cherokee Co. TX.
     2.     The probate record for EJR's estate mentions "5 minor children" (unnamed) when recorded on 28 December 1868. Only four minor children of EJR living in Dec 1868 have been otherwise identified, leaving the possibility that JHR was the fifth minor child (another child, Elijah Columby, died as an infant in 1864):
          a.     Margaret Caroline - aged 17 (b Nov 1851)
          b.     Susan Clarissa "Sudie" - aged 14 (b Oct 1854)
          c.     Elizabeth Jo - aged 7 (b Feb 1861)
          d.     Nancy Janervery - aged 6 (b Oct 1862)
     3.     EJR's widow, "Elizabeth Roberts" appears in the 1870 census (Rusk Co., TX), with her sister, Julia, and three minor children in her household, though there are discrepancies between the 1870 census DOBs and those from other sources:
     p. 485B, Lines: 21-25, Dwelling 301: Family 313
          21 ROBERTS, Frances 25 [1845] F W Keeping House $400 AL
          22 " , Julia 19 [1851] F W ?? AL
          23 " , Nannie 10 [1860] F W at home TX
          24 " , Lum 8 M w at home TX
          25 " , John 6 [1864] at home TX
     4.     A John Roberts (DOB 1865) appears in the household of a John T Wilson as a "orphan" farm worker in the 1870 census of Kaufman Co., TX. Coincidentally, the apparent location of the Wilson household is not far from the home of Emma Franklin, who JHR married in 1890
     5.     In the 1900 Census (Navarro Co., TX), JHR gives his parent's birthplaces both as AL. LFH was in fact born in AL, however EJH was born in TN. Since JHR's father EJR died in 1868 when JHR was between 1 and 4 years old, it is not unusual that he got his father's home state wrong.
     6. And Most Importantly: Because of the uncertainty of John Henry Roberts' parentage, a cousin and I have been trying to use DNA analysis to draw some conclusion as to which ROBERTS clan he might have descended from. We have three DNA samples on FTDNA and have accumulated a few matches to other likely links to the line of Elizah Josiah Roberts and his ancestors, the man I currently presume to be John Henry's father, but nother conclusive. I've here attached a chart showing some of that research. More recently (2 Feb 2019) Ancestry has published a DNA result that shows the link between the DNA samples of my mother and myself with the earlier Roberts of Elijah and the HIGGINBOTHAM line of his wife, Luticia. Graphics of these DNA analysis results are attached. I now feel that the link between and Elijah and Luticia (HIGGINBOTHAM) ROBERTS as the parents of John Henry ROBERTS is confirmed.

The only contrary evidence that I have found against this conclusion has to do with inconsistencies in the various records for JHR's DOB. However, I believe that the lack of consistency between the various records actually weakens the strength of these facts as contradictory evidence and that the Ancestry DNA matches confirm the link of John Henry to Elijah and Luticia as his prents.

The few contradicions are:
     1.     JHR's 1928 obituary gives his date of birth (DOB) as March 17, 1867.
     2.     EJR's other youngest child was born 21 Aug 1864 according to cemetery records, which if correct, precludes a 1860 DOB for JHR unless they were twins (for which there is no evidence).
     3.     The 1870 census (Rusk Co., TX, dated 22 Sep 1870) gives his age as 6 implying a DOB of ca 1864.
     4.     The 1880 census (Kaufman Co., TX, dated 23 June 1880) gives his age as 15 implying a DOB of ca 1865.
     5.     The 1900 census (Navarro Co., TX) gives his DOB as "March 1864".
     6.     The 1910 census (Comanche Co., TX, dated 24 May, 1910) gives his age as 44 implying a DOB of ca 1866.
