James Jr. was born 1801 in Franklin County, Georgia. He married Sarah Freeman daughter of Richard Freeman and Elizabeth Haggard, about 1822 in Franklin County, Georgia. James was listed in Franklin Co., Georgia Tax Records " non age " with ten negroes and 90 acres of land next to Richard Freeman ( his father in law ). Taxes were paid by his stepfather , David Anthony, in 1821 and 1822. Sarah and James, Jr. had 6 children before the young husband died in 1837, in Franklin County. A man by the name of Henry Parks was appointed guardian of the orphaned children of James, Jr. As far as can be told Henry Parks was not a relative. It is possible he was an officer of the court. In 1846 Sarah married Epperson Porter. Sarah was age 44 and " EP" was 73. 
155 SOURCE NOTES FOR JAMES, SR.: CFA Newletter Volume XVII, Number 1 ( Spring 2006) page #12
Also stated by the Chandler Family Association that he was born in Lunenburg, VA 1761.
He probably would not have remembered his grandfather Joe I, since he was born three years before his grandfather died at 64, in 1764. In 1776, when James was 15 and the Revolutionary War started, he was not old enough to join up. Besides, he was the family's oldest son and his fathers right hand man on the farm. His four pre-teen sisters helped their mother with chores. And he had two pesky little brothers, 3 and 7, Joseph III and Edmund. His sister Lucy died in 1792. and Sarah in 1800. It is hard to image that James did not fight in the Revolutionary War but no record of his participation has been found.

In 1784 he purchased 200 acres from Elijah Nunn on both sides of the Luck Fork on Moon's Creek, Caswell Co., NC. In 1788 he bought land from his father in Graville Co.. At 25, in 1786 he married Elizabeth Anne Stovall. In 1796 he sold his Granville property and moved his family to Franklin Co.,
Georgia along with his brother Joseph and his wife, Sarah Farmer, and at least two of his sisters and their
husbands: Lucy and William Pinson and Salley and William Mitchell. These families joined other Chandler families already living there.

In 1805 his father, now a widower, died in Caswell Co., NC. James, as the eldest son, was executor of
his estate. Six of his siblings in Georgia gave him Power of Attorney to obtain their legacy. By 1807 he
sent brother Joe III his share. By this time James ( 42) and Elizabeth were well established with six
husky boys and a daughter, Elizabeth. His brother Edmund, 32, who married Mary, died 10 years
later, leaving two boys. His brother Joseph III, 36, had 770 acres in Franklin County, GA. His lisslest brothers William and Stephen, were now 26 and 24, both engaged to be married.

James, only 48, died in 1809-their 23rd wedding anniversary year. His will gave the farm to Elizabeth
until the children were of age. James had seen only one son, Allen, get married and the birth of one
grandchild. Allen and Lewis were 20 and 22, old enough to farm; teenagers Wyatt, 18, and Richardson, 14, could help. James Jr and Stephen were 8 and 6. James Chandlers children:
Allen 1787; Lewis 1789, Wyatt 1791; Richardson 1795; Elizabeth 1798; James, Jr. 1801; and Stephen
1803 ( note this date to keep seperate from other Stephens ).

Elizabeth was a strong, intelligent, long-lived person who lived to see all their children married and many grandchildren. In 1817, when Elizabeth was 21, they almost had a double wedding. She
married second David Anthony; eight month later, daughter Elizabeth married her step-brother,
Martin Anthony, son of David. Life wasn't over yet!

The years from 1807 to 1824 were marrying off years for the widow Elizabeth-Allen in 1807, Wyatt in 1814, Richardson in 1815, Lewis in 1816, the two Elizabeths ( mother and daughter ) in 1817, James, Jr. in 1822, and Stephen in 1824.

From 1788 to 1834 were the baby years. She had 63 grandchildren; imagine giving each one of them a big hug and kiss, remembering their names and birthdays. She buried two sons in 1832 and 1833, Lewis and James, Jr. Three of her brothers-in-law, Edmund, William, and Stephen ( brothers of her first husband James ), died in 1815, 1831, and 1850.

Then came her senior years, from 1836 to 1850. In 1850 at 81 she was living in Franklin Co., GA, surrounded by grandchildren. James' brother, Joe III and sister Susannah also died in 1853 and 1854. The last of James' family and generation was Allen, died in 1856; Richardson 1859, and
Wyatt 1864.

CHANDLER *Joseph, Jr.
157 Joseph was the 6th son of Robert and Elizabeth Chandler. By 1726, Joseph and his wife left New Kent County and moved westwards to St. Margaret's Parish in King William County, VA where he acquired by patent, 400 acres of land. In 1732 he was granted 400 more acres in Goochland Co., VA where he moved with his sons, John, Joel and William on or about 1733.

He went to Caroline County, VA in 1826 and was in Goochland County, VA by 1732 or 1733. His land adjoined Joell Chandler. Heads of household and males were listed as 16-21, as well as certain slaves.

Note from Chandler Family Newsletter: June 2005 ( Volume XVI, Number 2):
Joe bought 400 acres in Goochland County, VA in 1732 by Joell, who had an orchard and everything. Joell became a Burgess and Commissioner. Joe and Sarah named their third son , 1729 after his kindly, brother William; daughter Nancy was born in 1732, son James in 1734, Elisha in 1736 and a
namesake of his father, Joseph II, in 1739.

The Lunenberg, VA Homestead:
William and Joe made more exploratory trips to the frontier buying and selling land. Joe and William sold their other lands, packed up all their families and goods again, and moved due south to Lunenberg County, VA which had just opened up for settlers on boths sides of the Meherrin River about 1745. In 1746 Joe's sons, John (19), Joel (18), and William (17), paid tithes with Joe in Lunenberg Co.; in 1749, William and Joe both bought large plats of land. Joe set in motion paperwork for a grant of 1,850 acres ( 3 miles square ), recorded with full title in 1760.

Finally, they settled down for good. Wild game, wild turkeys, fish were plentiful. Tobacco grew well. Plenty of trees to fell and clear and the river flooded, and - soggy ground does not a good garden make. Little Brother Joe did all right for himself and he was happy. He had a large homestead to leave to his 6 boys who could help him with the clearing and farming.

Those boys were now 25-37 and already making forays out to the frontier when Joe died at 64. Joe actually sounds a bit miffed when he wrote his will. Only daughter Nancy who had married, Richard Burns, and 2 boys, Joel and William were still at home helping him farm his large plantation when he died. In his will, he gave away 1,050 acres; Nancy and Richard 350 acres where they lived, son William 350 acres where he lives and Joel 350 acres where I live. He totally ignored four boys who had already moved away.

* The earliest known evidence of Robert and Elizabeth Chandler in York Co., Virginia is a will recorded
in 1651/52 for which Elizabeth Chandler was a witness. By this time Robert and Elizabeth had established a family and their tenure in York Co. and Robert's status as Land Owner involved in community affairs is confirmed by several surviving records. ( See CFA February 1994 Newsletter ).

Cittie) and died in New Kent County in 1669. His wife was named Elizabeth and may have been the daughter or sister of William Davis. They were known to have lived in York Co. as early as 1651/52.
Robert died in the spring of 1669. They had four sons: William, Robert, John and Francis and one daughter Mary. Robert's parents were John Chandler and ( ? ). The CFA writings say of Robert, " It
appears certain that he was born in Virginia, a son of John, the only Chandler documented as living
in this country who could be his father. " The CFA records also say that the name of Robert's mother
or the time of her death is not know, but John was married by 1636 to Elizabeth____________."

CHANDLER Elizabeth A

He was born 1734, on his parent's exploration trip with his Uncle William, likely, in Goochland, VA. He
was 74 at his death in 1808, Newberry, South Carolina. His will was written the 2nd March 1808 appointing his son, William and son in law, Noah BONDS, Executors. See Joseph C. Burton, Jr.
CFA Newsletter, October 1996, p. 5-7.

He was about 15 when they moved to the big ranch in Lunenberg, VA and he soon had to pay tithes,
with his father in 1752. He was about 21 in 1755 when he found the perfect wife, and married, Susannah. He was nearing 28, some 7 years later, 7 December 1762, when he bought 498 acres on the south side of the Meherrin River, Mecklenberg, VA, from his father for 10 pounds. When his father died two years
later, James was farming beside him, but he left James out of his will.

No need to fret: on 3 November 1766, James and Susannah sold the property given to James, bought 150 acres in Mecklenberg, moved in 1771 to Granville, NC, across the state line, selling the VA property
from NC. ( Mecklenberg Deed Book, 1-222, 236: Granville Deed Book H-250.

His children were teenagers when he moved further south to 250 acres on the Broad River in Newberry, SC. Although he was 46, he enlisted in the SC Militia about 1780 and served 6 years in the Revolutionary
War to 1786.(5) Ibid. R.G. Moss, Roster of SC Patriots-American Revolution; A.S. Salley, Jr. Stub Entries to Indents, Book X-11 He was in the battle with his first cousin John, when Joel's two sons Joseph and Obediah, were slaughtered by Tarleton's sword. Instead of King's Mountain, he fought in July and August, 1780, at Rocky Mount, Hanging Rock, and Fishing Creek, etc. ( Elisha may have been in and not survived, these battles ). We he sold land, his wife Susanna, made her mark.

They celebrated their 43rd Anniversary before James died, at 74, in 1808, in Newberry, SC. He willed
everything to Susannah to divide equally among the children. And he left 4 out of 7 off his will.

165 John II, Chandler was probably born in 1627 or 1628, a year or two after his father wed widow Elizabeth LUPO. Albiano had died in the fall of 1626. John II first appears in surviving records when he patented 1500 acres and 350 acre tracts on January 28, 1656/7 on Chickacone Creek in Northumberland County, VA.

Unfortunately, John II died young, possibly before his 30th birthday. On March 23, 1656/7 ( seven weeks after his patents were issued ), a power-of-attorney from John II to John Trussell was declared void by death in Northumberland Court. A letter from widow Mary Chandler dated May 28, 1657, filed July 20, 1657, appointed Trussell her Power of Attorney to continue prosecution of two lawsuits Trussell had been handling for her late husband. Mary did not reside in Northumberland, but the exchange of documents occurred too quickly for her to have lived abroad.

Northumberland's earliest record ( May 1644 ) lists Trussells as " Commander of Northumberland". His 1649 patent--first document in the patent book, 400 acres on Chickocone Creek joining John Mottrom--was just a few stone's throws from the 1850 acres of John II. Earlier,
Trussell was Undersheriff of ECC where, in 1635, he patented 200 acres on Back River near the 1000 acres patented by John 1 in 1636. By 1656/7 he had known John I and John II for more than two decades.

Mary --?--Chandler, widow of John II, is mostly a mystery, but perhaps her father was Captain William Tucker ( 1588/9-1644), a merchant who traded between Virginia and London for more than three decades. Tucker and his family resided less than a mile from John 1 and had a daughter named Mary who was a contemporary of John II. Captain Tucker was also an overseer of Albiano Lupo's will, in which capacit he surely would have had a say in the fitness of John 1 to marry widow Elizabeth Lupo.

There can be little doubt that widow Mary Chandler was the same as widow Mary Hinton whose will ( lost ) was probated in ECC on September 10, 1692. At death, she was living on Chandler land that was inherited in 1692 by John Chandler IV from his father John III ( see below ) Her son John Hinton did not inherit any of the Chandler land, evidence she had only a lease, life of dower interest in the Chandler land where she lived.

Children of John II and Mary ( --?--) ( probably others:

Page: The Arrival of John Chandler in 1610

The McLaurin-McMahon Family Research Page
Author: Rex McLaurin

At the age of 9, John Chandler arrived in Virginia on the 6 June 1610, landing at Jamestown on Sunday,
June 10. John came to Virginia in the 1610 ( not 1609 as widely published and accepted ) expedition
led by Sir Thomas West, Lord Delaware.

John lived adjacent to Albaino Lupo in Elizabeth City County, Virginia. John was single in 1623 when the list of the living was taken after the massacre. In 1620, 1200 had been counted, but only 60 remained alive after the Indian raids. John was still single in 1624 when listed in a military unit run by Thomas Willoughby, but must have married not long after, for his son, Robert, was born about 1625-1630.

He married, possibly his second wife, Elizabeth Lupo about 1627, the widow of Albaino Lupo.

By 1646-48 he had risen to be a Burgess from Elizabeth City County. John owned at one time or another,1000 acres in Elizabeth City County and he was a Justice from 1646-1658.

John through his marriage to the widow Elizabeth_?_Lupo prior to the summer of 1636. This marriage brought ownership of 400 acres of harbor front land in the present city of Hampton into Johns
ownership where that land remained intact until the 5th generation when Hannah ( Chandler ) began selling off parcels in 1718.

From the Chandler Family Association's Newsletter, Volume III, Number III ( P.O. Box # 8132 Lakeland,
FL 33802-8132 ).* He arrived in Jamestown in 1609 on the ship Hercules. * He is listed in the Muster
of 1624/1625 as a single man, age 24. * From the Chandler Family Association Newlsetter, February 1994. * He acquired land in Elizabeth City Co., Virginia and lived until his death on a large tract of land that bordered on Warwick Co.. * His marriage to Elizabeth Lupo, widow, by 1636 was apparently his second marriage.

" John Chandler born 1599/1600 in England came to Virginia on the Hercules in 1609 at the age nine,
the circumstances of his voyage unknown. He survied the epidemics of the early years at Jamestown,
and the Indian Massacre of 1622 and in 1624 was living at Kiccoughtan, later Elizabeth City County, as a servent indentured to Ensign Thomas Willoughby. By 1632 he was farming land that he owned or leased, and in 1636 he patented 1000 acres for himself and his " now wife, Elizabeth " on Harris Creek
in Elizabeth City, today within the city limits of Hampton, VA. He lived to be a prosperous planter, respresenting Elizabeth City in the Virginia House of Burgesses in 1645-48. He was Justice of the County Court in 1648-49, and may have died soon after.

John Chandler's reference to his " now wife Elizabeth, : would indicate a first wife who had died before
1636 and who was the mother of Robert Chandler of York County. There are a few surviving records of
Chandlers later in Elizabeth City who are also probably his descendants. "
John Chandler was a member of the House of Burgesses from Elizabeth City in November 1645 and
1647 and a Justice of that county in 1652. In 1636 he obtained a grant for 1,000 acres in Elizabeth
City County for importing his wife and nineteen other persons. About 1639 he purchased Newport
News from the Gookins. In 1639 there is a joint bond from him and Samuel Chandler, merchant of
London. Susequently he sold Newport News to Captain Benedict Stafford, from whom it came to William Digges.

10 June 1610. Jamestown, Henrico County, Virginia
John Chandler was the first Chandler descendant to arrive to the New World in 1610. He was believed to have been ten years of age when he set foot on Jamestowne, Virginia after many sea battles on the Hercules. The Hercules along with two other ships were commanded by Lord De La Warr and Govenor Thomas West. (( Seen above is a picture of the three ships which arrived in Virginia, on June 10, 1610.)) At this time Jamestowne was not established for the purpose of religious freedom. ( Among
the majority of the crew members, John Chandler and three other individuals who survived and were
teenagers, marking their date of arrival on what is to be called " The Day of Providence ". ).

On June 7,1610, the settlers...boarded the ship, left Jamestown and started down the James. Next morning, while still on the river, advance word reached Gates that Lord De La Warr had arrived...an
act of Providence. On June 10,1610, De La Warr reached " Jamestowne" and made his landing. He entered the fort through the south gate and, with his colors flying, went on to the church where Reverend Richard Buck delivered an impressive sermon. Then his ensign, Anthony Scott, read his commission and Gates formally delivered to him his own authority as govenor. De La Warr's arrival
had given the settlement new life and new hope.

John Chandler's First 100 Years by the Chandler Family Association Newsletter: Volume XV, Number II, June 2004:
John Chandler, bz 7 September 1600, St. Margaret, Westminster, London, England 1 ( We still don't know for sure who his parents were, but we are hoping to change that with a DNA project ).

2 He emigrated with Lord De La Warr, arriving at Point Comfort, VA on the 6 June 1910, and at Jamestown for Lord De Lar Warr's official Thanksgiving service, 10 June 1610 (3 ). He did not live at Jamestown--he lived at Point Comfort, First Landing, and Kecoughtan/Elizabeth City.

He was about 59 when he died, 1659+, Elizabeth City County, VA. He was alive to 12 February, that year as a County
Judge, attending meetings, holding the gavel, and signing records-then the rest of those records are gone.

We can believe that he was a brave, sturdy little fellow with a good attitude. Imagine his first sight of Jamestown, VA: only 60 weak, starving men greeted them out of the 450 Captain John Smith left there and the 600 who had come with Sir Thomas Gates a few months before. Those 60 were already aboard ship waiting for a high tide to take them home to England-an ominous entry for the new immigrants. Imagine John's feelings when he saw the big ditch where the bodies of previous settlers were dumped because of starvation, the London plague and yellow fever.
( New: Excavations show they were so weak they could only throw the bodies in and cover them. This was not a
mistake; 14 years later at the first massacre most of those at Jamestown were killed by the Indians and
again were buried, but in a different common grave ).

Lord De La Warr's reaction was to immediatley order his men and those still alive to start planting corn. " If we don't plant, we don't eat. " Since corn loves warm growing weather, it wasn't too late to plant. John Chandler ( 9 ), Reynold Booth ( 19 ), and William Julian ( 29 ), his friends on the ship, HERCULES, set to work with enthusiasm. But when
Sir Thomas Dale came in 1611, only 150 were alive (4 )-- half of even Lord De La Warr's settlers had died. Ensign
Thomas Willoughby quickly became John's buddy; he was 10 in 1611 when he came on the PROSPEROUS. He had suits of armor, a pistol, 4 swords and formed a militia to watch for Indians. Three more their age came later; Nicholas
Davies, 13/1618 on the MARIEGOULD; Thomas Chandler, 20 in 1623, on the GREAT HOPEWELL; and Robert Bennett,
24/1624 on the JACOB. They were still together in the militia of Captain Thomas Willoughby in 1624.

Looking around the site, what would they eat? There is not much beside tarry swamps. I noticed a pair of mallard ducks, and a family of Canadian Geese, but it is quiet--no deer, no rabbits, no bear, no elk, no blackberries or currants or crab apples in the woods. Chesapeake Bay has no oysters, blue soft shell and big hard shell crabs, clams, but they are not in the James River. Gates brought another 280 men, 20 women, 200 head of cattle and 200 pigs in 1620.

Lord De La Warr, put everyone to work building houses, sturdy palisade fences and repairing the church at Jamestown.
The first church burned in January 1608; the second was in bad shape, but he had skilled carpenters with him. It lasted until 1622. The third was built in 1623 on the same foundation bricks, the fourth in 1662 of brick on the same foundation. The one you see today is a replica of that church in the same place, with the old foundations showing under glass.

The church is rightly famous: Pocahontas and John Rolfe were married here, in April 1613. She was very helpful to the settlers in the first years and Rolfe showed them how to grow tobacco-their first cash crop. More importantly, the very first democratic, legislative governmental body in the US, the House of Burgesses, met in that small , drafty, wood church in 1619. They changed the name of Kecoughtan to Elizabeth City. They made a law that ordinary men could own land, not just the rich. They required church attendance at worship services.

But John did not live in Jamestown--Lord De La Warr brought his settlers back down the James River to Captain John
Smith's First Landing site on the east side of the Hampton River in 1610 were Govenor Argall had chased the Indians out of their villages; then, they moved across the Hampton River to the other cleaned out Indian Village of Kecoughtan were Reverend William Meese was the first minister ( 1610-1620 ).

Lt. Albiano Lupo, Gent. (1 ) came in 1610 aboard the SWAN. He was babtized (2 ) 22 August 1679, at St. Botolph, without Aldgate ( outside the old wall and gates ), London, England (3 ). ( I question this date ).
His father, uncles and grandfather were official violinists for the King. Like the Jewish boy, David, who soothed the nerves of King Saul by playing his harp, six Jewish violin players, Alexander, Ambrose and Romano of Milan, Albert and
Vincenzo of Venice and Juan Maria of Cremona, soothed the frayed nerves of King Henry VIII of England. They were a family of Jewish musicians of the Mmusicians Guild of Antwerp, Belgium. In November 1540, King Henry hired them as court musicians to upgrade the quality of music at the palace ( since he was bringing home a new queen ). Ambrose
Lupo played for English royalty for 54 years. Albiano's two brothers, William and Phillip came to Virginia in 1621 aboard, GEORGE.

Albiano may have had a prior marriage; he ( 37 ) married, Elizabeth (? ) after she arrived from England (19 ) in 1616, in the First Church of Kicoughtan, built a half a mile east of their property. She was born in 1597, paid her own passage and carried a court order for 50 acres of land in her own name. At first everyone worked for the Virginia Company; in 1619 the Burgesses changed the law to allow personal ownership of land; Albiano was given Ancient Planter land. He and Elizabeth recorded their patents ( 1 September and 20 September ) 1624 for 350 and 50 acres in Kickoughtan near John Bush who came in 1619. They had a daughter, Temperance, born 1620, baptized in First Church, and built a house on their property along the James River waterfront
(1) Means he was one step lower than nobility-King's Musician. He had shares in the Virginia Company
(2) NEW: This copy of St. Botolph Babtismal Register, in LDS files, Salt Lake City, UT, show his parents were Peter and
Katherine Wickes; they were Sephardic Jews, possibly converted Christians.
(3) Descendant, Mathew Lupo, has an excellent website.

Meanwhile, John Chandler was earning his keep working with Willoughby's Militia when disaster struck; Secretly, the Indians blamed their troubles on the " big white sails that brought so many white faces." They scouted the settlements in the guise of being friendly, had supper with them and breakfast, on the 20th March 1621/2; then they rose up and killed 347 people- 1/4 of the colony of 1,232. The militia was sent after Opechancanough and his band.

A list of the Living and a List of the Dead was made; burial places found. Almost all living in Jamestown were killed; almost all in Kicoughtan were not killed. William Lupo and Richard Chandler were killed; Albiano, Elizabeth, Philip and Tempy were not. Willoughby's Militia had real work to do. They were still a unit, practicing guarding areas, watching for
Indians, quick loading guns which they were now old enough to handle when a Muster ( Census ) was taken in 1624. These three documents are proof records for historians and John is listed.

After 9 years of marriage, Albiano Lupo, died, 20 October 1626, and was buried by the First Church of Kicoughtan. ( He willed his property to Elizabeth in fee simple which means his brothers could not claim it, she owned it outright in her own name ). She was a 29- year old widow with 400 acres-she wasn't single long. (1) She reports the same birth year in 1624(28) with husband Albiano and in 1636(40) with John Chandler.

John and Elizabeth were married in 1626, probably, in the Second Church, east of the Hampton River. NEW!(2) We have no document for (3) this marriage but it was 1626 for the next five months. It is unlikely she remained a widow that long. John celebrated his 27th birthday, collected his Ancient Planter land in kicoughtan, dropped out of the Willoughby Militia, and was ready to settle down. He was a step-father to Temperance Lupo and soon had two sons of his own:
John, Jr. in 1627 and Robert in 1629/0. They would row across the river to have them babtized in the 2nd Church of Elizabeth City at First Landing.

John began collecting real estate. In 1630 he imported Thomas Herrick and recieved 50 acres. In 1632 he was working by Richard Stephens at Back Creek ( north of the Hampton River ? ). By 20 March 1634, he bought 1,430 acres of Marie's Mountain; ( 1200 acres in Warwick, 226 in Newport News), from Daniel and John Gookin, plus some cattle.

His wife, Elizabeth Lupo, made a trip to London to settle in the courts that she was the sole owner of Albiano's land, subject to John Chandler, and returned. On 6th July 1636 he patented 1,000 acres at Harris Creek, having transported
20 people including his wife, Elizabeth, the brothers, Ralph and John Hunt, John Fisher, Joan Bailey, Elizabeth Garett, Robert Davis, in the same area as Stephen's land.

(2) There is no question that this was John's first and only wife. The " now wife " is a legal term John used to show 400 of his 2,930 acres was actually his wife's-not that there were other wives.
(3) The CFA has 26 documents about John, but do Not have one of his marriage, death, or birth dates, a will or birth dates of his sons. CFAN ( John Chandler, Elizabeth City County, VA 1610 ( February 1998 ).
(4) NEW: John, Jr. was born in 1627. Counting 5 months from Albiano's death until the 1627 began in April means even if he married her in November. there wasn't a 9-month period left in 1626. Also if he didn't marry her until April ( new year of 0 1627, there was a full 12 months for the birth in that year.
(5) Harris Creek is actually a Bay off the Chesapeake Bay which extends miles or so back toward (current ) Hampton through some salt flats. In 1636 John patented 1,000 acres along the north end of the Hampton River, and the west end of Harris Creek near the Stephens land. In fact a large area there which has been divided into 5 subdivisions is big enough to be his 1000 acres.
(6) Joseph Baron Chandler, Jr. TVF, Volume #9, #2, page #75.

by 1640 John was a prosperous tobacco rancher with 2,880 acres of land in Elizabeth City and Warwick. When Samuel Chandler of London came to Virginia settlng the Lady Dale estate, he met with John, who needed a pinnace ( small sailboat ). On 17 February 1639/40. John, of Newport News (39), but on Accomac, VA, met with , Samuel Chandler, of London (21). They made a deal to build a pinnace for John, backed by John's promissory note and 300 #pounds sterling which he sent to Sam's brother, Richard Chandler of Aldermanbury Street, London.

John deferred his judgement to Samuel's that his servant Robert Warder, would be free after 3 years of service to William Burdett, Lady Dale's cattleman.

In 1644 the Indians massacred 347 more settlers! November 1644, John Chandler, landowner, and man of respect, was elected a Burgess from Elizabeth County, and again in 1646. In 1657/8. He had to help decide what to do about the Indians, 10 May 1647. He served as judge & Commissioner for 11 years +.

In 1645, John transported 5 more people, gaining 300 acres in York County, which son, Robert checked out by 1652. In 1646 John was the Justice who recieved Thomas Todd's confession in court that he failed to pay for 6 pairs of buckskin

In 1647 John was appointed overseer of Henry Thurmer's estate and underage son, Thomas, in Deep Creek, Warwick County. (1) John Chandler asked the court to turn 5,231# pounds tobacco Thomas was owed into cattle, per Henry's will. Miles Cary was the attorney. It may be that John's son Robert, ( now 18 ), was helping him on this property, because later Thomas Thurmer sold Robert land in New Kent. Was Robert's wife Elizabeth Thurmer? NEW!!

From 1649-51, 1658, John Chandler, Leonard Yeo and Thomas Ceeley (2 ) landowners, were authorized to preside as Justices in Elizabeth City. In 1655 before he died, John sold Marie's Mountain to Captain Benedict Stafford, but it
escheated ( went back to Sheriff for sale at auction ) in 1684. Colonel William Cole purchased it.

Neighbor, John Trussell, Deputy Sheriff of Elizabeth City, patented 200 acres at Back/Harris Creek, he later went with son Daniel to Northumberland County.

John and Elizabeth celebrated their 31st anniversary before he died sometime after 1658. She had 9 years with Albiano who was buried at the Second Church site east of the Hampton River; John, his son John Jr. and Elizabeth were buried
at the Third Church of Elizabeth City on West Pembroke and Parkdale Avenue. Children:

Elder W.D. Chandler, one of Madison County's oldest and most respected citizens died at his home near Union Church on a.m. Wednesday and was buried at the family burying ground on Thursday afternoon. Elders McLerny and Hurst conducted the services. He has been feeble for a good long while but was taken seriously ill about 3 weeks ago. He entered in the ministry in his early days and has walked the path of duty, ---titude and right, from his boyhood days and the Father of us all has called him home to wear the crown that was prepared for him and to dwell in that mansion that was not made with hands but made of God. He raised a large family of children. All of them, but three, with his good wife, proceeded him to the other shore and now he has gone to join them where the partings are over and peace forever reigns. To the weeping ones we extend our heartfelt sympathy and say to you do not weep for the departed for he is with the redeemed and by living up to his example, you too will join him and the others in that celestial city when the family ties will be forever clasped.

Sketch of one who came to Madison County seventy five years ago.

Editor Independent: Thinking that a sketch of the life of Isaac Criner, who departed this life on the 18th of
December, 1876 would be interesting to your many readers, I write it fore you. We suppose that he was
the oldest man in Madison County, having been born on the 22nd day of April 1779 or 1783 ( upon which
there is a difference of opinion in the minds of the family ). Certain it is that he was the oldest settler in this county, as he and his uncle Joseph Criner and cousin Stephen McBroom were the first white men that ever settled in the county. As to the year there is also a difference of opinion. Your correspondent has known him for near a half century, thinks he came to what is called old Madison in the year 1802, new Madison then being in the possession of the Cherokee Indians. Again, it is certain that in the year he moved over on the Indian territory, where he was burned out and otherwise molested by the Regulars, as they were then called.

Joseph Criner and McBroom died near Maysville on Hurricane Creek in this county many years ago.

We are aware that we occupy grounds that are controverted when we say that the Criners and McBrooms were the first settlers, since some of the Hunt family claim that John Hunt, the founder of
your city, was the first. Now Messrs. Editors, the colony which accompanied John Hunt was not less than the third that entered this territory. After the Criners, a colony headed by Samuel Davis came into this territory, arriving the year before Hunt.

There are some of them who left families and came and selected their places to settle. Samuel Davis
settled the place where Huntsville now stands, cut his house logs and laid the foundation of his house and otherwise improved the spot, and returned for his family, and when he got back with his family he
the said Hunt, had got there and completed the house on Davis' foundation. Davis then came out and
settled at what is now known as the Ward ( Word ) place in the neighberhood of New Market.
Then came the Walkers and Campbells and settled Hickory Flat, and about the same time the Browns, Rices, Matthews and McCain came and settled on the fork of the Flint River. The latter settled at the McFarland place ( now owned by Isham Fennel ) who's daughter Isaac Criner married about the year 1810. They raised nine daughters and three sons, all of whom were so trained as to be strict observers of the 5th Commandment. When Isaac came to this neighberhood with his mother ( the two composed the family ) theu had but little property, but by his industry and economy raised and educated his children and accumulated a handsome fortune, and he said that he could say in truth, that in all his dealings with his fellow men, he had strictly observed the Golden Rule. If he had ever done anything wrongfully he did not know it. And that if he had his life to live over again, so far as hid worldly dealings were concerned he did not know wherein he could better it. Is that of itself a rich inheritance to his six surviving daughters and grand and great grandchildren? Those who were acquainted with him believed every word he said. Whatever could be said of any man's good qualities and virtues necessary to make him a husband, father, master and citizen in the full sense of these terms, could be said of Isaac Criner. His habits of life were strictly temprate in eating, drinking, sleeping and work. He used neither whiskey nor tobacco, but little coffee or hot tea. His spring is about 200 feet from his dwelling, and until the last four years, his habit was to go to that spring every morning, winter and summer, cold or hot, and wash and bathe his head, a return to the house before using a towell, many times with his hair frozen upon his head. We think the manner of living had much to do with his health and length of life. We have said that the deceased did not know how he could improve his life temporally, but he could not say so much for his life spiritually. He said that if he had his life to go over, he could make improvements in that respect. One point of regret, was his profanity when young, but for all his sins, he felt that God in his mercy had forgiven him, and he had no fears as to the future. Though he had been a professor of religion for many years, he never joined any Church. If we had no other evidence of his parapet of heart to meet his God in peace, we think the simple fact of his knowledge of his guilt and regret of misspent life with his faith in the mercy of God would be enough, since nothing but the light revealed from Heaven could convince a man of his sin and guilt that had lived the life of morality as did Isaac Criner. Therefore, we may say to the bereft " sorrow not as those who have no hope".

1. "Regulars" were the United States soldiers stationed in the area to prevent the whites from encroaching on the Indians.

2. " the Browns" may be George T. Jones wife's kin. " McCain was Nancy Criners father. By running the land records back through Fennel and McFarland, we determined that the SW 1/4 of Section 6, Township #2, Range 2-East was originally entered by Robert McCain, who assigned the certificate before it was fully paid out, and last payment made, and patent recieved by William Griffin, 5 October 1819.

3. As explained elsewhere, Isaac and Nancy must have been married about 1814.

4. The writer forgot Isaac's youngest brother Granville, who had moved to Texas long before Isaac's death. None of his other brothers ( or sisters, if any ) ever lived here, although his brother John was in Lincoln County, Tennessee for some years

The above notes pertain to references in the sketch on Isaac Criner. These notes and the following Criner-McCain outline were researched and compiled by Alabama genealogist Mrs. Gandrud who was a great grandaughter of Isaac Criner.


The Criner's were very evidently a family which did not spend its time talking of their kin. When investigations started, it was quickly apparent that Isaac Criner's grandaughters Clara Dean Moore and Elvalena ( Moore ) Jones had never heard any discussions regarding their ancestry. They had know Isaac Criner, who did not die until 1876, when they were fairly good sized children. They were raised by their aunts Mahala and Almyra, but all they know was that their grandmother" had been a McCain" and that she had a brother Bob. They knew Joseph Criner was an uncle of Isaac's that Granville was his brother, and " the McBrooms were kin".

After many years, and help from other distant relatives,we have put together what we believe to be a fairly accurate summery. There was in the family, the tradition that the Criners came from Germany, and as is so often a legend, there was a " fortune " over there, awaiting claimants. The fortune is probaby fantasy, but the German origin seems true. There were many Creiners, Kreiners, etc. in pre-Revolutionary Pennsylvania, the gateway for immigrants of the Palatines.

The first of the family that we can definely claim is John Criner, a Revolutionary soldier, of Virginia and Tennessee.

From Sumners' Annuls of Southest Virginia" we get:
7March, 1775. Fincastle County, Virginia. John Criner one of the tithables to keep up the road from Michael Price's field where Gresham's path goes into the Ctawba Road ( page #640).

17 August, 1779. Washington County, Virginia. Ordered that Col. Evan Shelby, administrator of Martin Statzer, pay John Criner fourty five pounds exclusive of the five bushels of corn he already got for taking care of Martin Stutzer (sic ) while he was ill of his wound. ( page # 1042)

18 May, 1779, Washington County, Virginia. Col. Evan Shelby granted administration on the estate of Martin Statzer, deceased. Joseph Gray, John Carmack, Samuel Willson and Henry Turney to appraise the estate of Martin Statzer, ( page #1022).

Statement from Prentiss Price, long a reseracher in East Tennessee history:
1936. " Until October 1779, when the North Carolina line was extended west and Sullivan County, Tennessee erected, everything north of the Holston River was thought to be in Virginia, and the earliest records of the present Hawkins County are found in the Fincastle and Washington County records.

Carmack, Wilson and Turney, we know positively to have been living in Hickory Cove, present Hawkins County, TN in 1778 and 1779, and since they were chosen appraisers, Statzer must have lived there or thereabouts too, and therefore John Criner was in Hawkins County in 1779.

I do not know exactly where Criner was living in 1775, but it was certainly not the present Hawkins , but in Virginia, for there were no roads in the Hawkins County territory at that date. These two references in Sumners book, which starts in 1769, so John Criner must have come from some place before we find him in Fincastle. David Greiner and family lived in Staunton in the 1770's which might be a clue. Your reference to William Brice also shows that John Criner probably lived in Hickory Cove, for Bruce married Mary Brooks, only child of Castleton Brooks, who was killed by the Indians in Hickory Cove in 1777, and who owned land in that section. The headwaters of Caney Creek are in the cove and Stock Creek flows into Caney Creek near its mouth on the Holston River."

In 1935 Kathleen Paul Jones and Pauline Jones Gandrud made a trip to Rogersville, the county seat of Hawkins County, TN, where it was found that there were no books of marriage records, only some loose bonds, and very evidently only a small part of those which had been issued in the early days of the county. We found none of any of the Criner family.

Bett's History of Madison County, Alabama says that Joseph and Isaac Criner were brothers; but that is most surely in error. In Hawkins County, we found in Deed Book #6, page #168. Deed from the heirs of John Criner, deceased to A. Kincheloe, dated September 28, 1808, registered 17th June 1809. We, John Crinor, George Crinor, Sally Crinor, Rebecca Crinor, Hannah Crinor, Elizabeth Chambers and Thomas McBroom, heirs of John Crinor deceased, for the sum of $ 1,500 do convey land in Hawkins County on Bigg Creek adjoining a tract of land formerly, belonging to Henry Turney and described as follows: beginning on a red oak, , hickory and gum on the north side of the creek about half way between Nettle's and Taylor's improvement, running north 34 degrees west, 196 poles to two white oaks and ash, thence north 45 degrees east 70 poles to a hickory and two sourwoods, thence north 67 degrees east 30 poles to a large white oak and beach on Samuel Wilson's line ( etc ) Conveyed from Evan Shelby to Joseph Crinor and from Joseph Crinor to John Crinor; 396 acres agreeable to grant issued from the State of North Carolina to Evan Shelby 17th April 1780. But it is forever to be observed that whearas a part of said land is claimed by the heirs of Castleton Brook and likewise by Samuel Wilson, which said disputed part, we convey only our right and claim ( signed ) John Crinor

Note: Evidently Rebecca Criner was a widow, possibly Hannah had never married, also Sally and McBroom was, according to the law of that time, owner of his wife's portion. Tennessee did not require the wife's signature to a deed.

Some years ago, while in Nashville, TN , in the Land Grant Building searching for records...this was about 1927. On a table was a bunch of original documents, and on the very top was one was this one:
" Sir, you will pleas to deliver my plat and arrents of two hundred acres in Hawkins County, State of
Tennessee to Mr. William Brice also one of forty eight acres of John Criner's and in so dowing you will oblige your friends. July 30, 1802.
( Signed ) Jacob Sowders
John Criner
to the Secretary of the State of North Carolina at Raughlee.

We ( Jones and Gandrud ) wrote to Raleigh about this, but the searcher they referred us to , asked $ 30.00 to look for it, so we did not employ him.

We have nothing at all to show who John Criner's wife was. Apparently his children were John Criner, Joseph Criner, born February 15, 1767, died in Madison Co., AL October 15th ,1843, and buried at Nelson's Chapel in Killingworth Cove. He married in Hawkins Co., TN, Eleanor Ingram, b. July 20, 178...., died September 5, 1842, George Criner, Sally Criner, Rebecca Criner, mother of Isaac Criner ( one of Isaac Criner's descendants said she was told that Rebecca married a kinsman who came over with the Hessian troops, and knowing he had kin, either deserted, or maybe was discharged after the war, and hunted them up, then married his cousin. But documentary proof is not to be had. The family of Isaac Criner seemed not to know of any brothers or sister save Granville, many years his Junior, so we have felt there must have been others. And then, we got into correspondence with a Mr. J.C. Criner of Ft. Worth, TX whose ancestor John Criner ( Jr. ) was for a time in Lincoln Co. TN and who had brothers Joseph, George, Isaac and Granville. Probably Isaac was the eldest, and surely Granville the
youngest, born July 18,1804. One suspects that Rebecca did not come to Alabama, until after her father's land was sold, when she brough her small son, and came to live with her oldest one. Her husband would have died 1803/04 leaving her a femme sole, and ablt to sign her own deed. There may have been some daughters, and probably were, but Mr. J.C. Criner's family were silent about them. Women did not count, especially in Tennessee.

When in Raleigh in 1962 Mrs. Jac Countess copied three Revolutionary Land Grants to John Criner of Hawkins Co., TN

Book #73, page #1 #69 Entered 10/6/1779-issued 11/26/1789, Entry # 1826 200 acres on north side of Holston River.

Book #73, page #2 # 71 Entered 10/23/1783-issued 11/26/1789 Entry # 334 200 acres-same location
as above.

Book #75, page # 153 #97 Entered 12/17/1779-issued 12/16/1791 Entry #2358. 640 acres on the north side of Spock Creek.

Mr. Prentis Price lives in Rogersville, TN and he was thoroughly familiar with what records they have left, but found nothing regarding Rebecca's husband. Had the wives been required to sign deeds, as in Virginia or Alabama, we might have been able to have identified him. He may have been one of the Joseph's or Johns who executed deeds, but if so there is no way to seperate him from Isaac's grandfather John, or his uncle Joseph. So he will remain a mystery.

Running true to form, Isaac ( knowing, himself and having no thought for future generations ) simply put down in his Bible that Rebecca Criner " deceast" June 8, 1826. And he or his his family put up a tombstone, on Graveyard Hill in New Market, " In memory of Rebecca Criner, mother of Isaac Criner, died June 8,1826. " One wonders if this stone was not erected after Isaac's death, when his was :
curiously, there was no marker for Isaac's wife, but surely she must be buried there, as it was an established cemetary at the time of her death.

Going back to the children of John Criner, Sr., the Revolutionary soldier, he also had Hanna Criner, possibly a spinster, Elizabeth Chambers who was a widow of Mark Chambers; she had a son born as early as 1778. Then there was Thomas McBroom, husband of one of his daughters, who name is not mentioned. This Thomas McBroom of Grainger County, TN was the father of Stephen McBroom, who came to Madison County, AL and who was close kin to Isaac Criner, although his children seemed not to have told his neices the degree, apparently they were first cousins.

As stated, we have only a tradition from another branch of the Criner family, as to the husband of Rebecca Criner; Hawkins Co., TN has no old marriage records, and Isaac was not at all careful to record items in his Bible that he kniw, but we do not , and have no way of finding out! Aunt Clara Moore said her aunts often joked about " the big in Germany, they could share if they'd go back and claim
it" but...from whom? John Criner's side, or that of his cousin/son-in-law? Or possibly, both. Early Pennsylvania had many Criners or Kriners. John probably followed his fellow Germans to the Western part of Virginia, and worked from there down to East Tennessee, or rather at that time North Carolina.

Nor do we have the exact date of the marriage of Isaac Criner and Nancy McCain...again because he did not put it in the Bible and through carelessness in the Probate Office under Judge Ferdinand L.
Hammond in the 1850's the official record was entered incorrectly. Judge Hammond had all the older marriage records " copied "...of those purporting to have been done so, only " Book #C " has survived, which illustrates the incapability, or the irreponsibility of the man supposed to have done it, for in that space of not quite ten years, comparison of the " original" with the copy shows that ninety nine were entirely omitted. ..he'd take one on a page where were two, turn two pages together, almost every
mistake which could be made and the dates err to. It seems that Books #1 and #2 were made up from loose bonds, since none or almost none, carry any notice of solemnization. He apperantly made a half hearted attempt to group them according to date, and left out a number we have learned are shown in Old Bibles. Since the County Clerk wrote a fearfully bad hand, perhaps it was that which caused the two errors in dates whe have found. One is " Aden " Ashburn to Mary Glover Rhea, shown as 25th October 1814. It has been well proven that she married after his death, Thomas Nesmith: They filed a petition for her dower, stating that " in 1811 said Polly married Edwin Ashburn. In November 1814 he died without issue, etc. The record shows " Isaac Criner to Nancy McCain, 23 November 1817". This very obviously should be 1814, as the two figures are often much alike, especially when a goose quiled pen was sued and by a poor penmanship. The Bible shows that their eldest child was born in August 1816. The obituary said they were married " about ", but one must assume the writer must have estimated that. Isaac was quite evidently one of those people who never was interested enough in his famly to talk about it, which trait was inherited by his grandaughters Clara and Elva...they never asked any questions at all. Not any, which seems incredible, although there are thousand like them, alas.

Isaac Criner made deeds of gift to his children, in his old age. I have copied only the list of his heirs at law, shown i File #3415, in the Probate Office of Madison Co., AL and which is not of record, although
the same information is recorded in the estate of Mahala Criner, the stong minded spinster daughter, who evidently " ruled the roost", firmly.

She and her sweet gently sister Almyra ( Myra ) stayed with their father, and reared four motherless nieces. Old Isaac would not consent to the marriage of his youngest child, Martha Woodson, unless they agreed to live with him, so Mr. Moore gave up the work he was fitted to do, accounting...and settled down on the farm for which he had neither taste nor talent, to operate. When his wife died leaving, three little girls, Clara, Elva and Ena, he had to stay and lived his days out , on Mountain Fork. Cousin Lena said that after the girls had all left and he and Aunt Myra were alone they decided that rather than keep a woman there to play propriety, the would have a marriage of convenience, purely, with no romance" a part of it, and even spoke to old " Brother Power " to perform the ceremony. But Clara came home, and they told her...whereupon she ( much the same type as Mahala ) created a terrible scene and said if they did such a terrible thing she would throw herself into the Blue Hole and drown herself. So..they gave it up. When Howard was told of it he very unkindly said " They ought to have told her to jump right in. She never would have really done it."

They raised cousin Susie Oaks also, who had lost both parents. Cousin Lena's father had died but her mother lived and she said that Aunt Mahala was never nice to them though Aunt Myra was a dear. Her mother had taughter her never to ask for food when visiting. Once when they were at the Criner's the other children came in, demanding bread and butter, which Aunt Mahala gave them. Noticing Lena had none, Aunt Myra asked why she had not given Lena some too? " She didn't say she wanted any",
sniffed Mahaly. " Well, you know she is hungry, same as the others", said Aunt Betty, as she led her to the dining room. Cousin Lena was an old, old woman, but that slight still rankled her. They loved the childless Aunt Betty also....she was sweet and gentle and loved the children and was loved in return. Mama Jones never breathed a word to me about the frustrated wedding, but Cousin Lena was full of memories.

The list of heirs of Isaac Criner, deceased, mentioned above, dated November 13,1879 is:

1. Lucinda Criner Scott, wife of James Conn Scott, Marshall County, AL
2. Mahala Criner
3. Almyra Criner
4. Elizabeth Flippen, wife of Newton Flippen, Madison Co., AL
5. Mary Ann Robinson, wife of Seaborn Robinson, Johnson Co., TX
6. Nancy Whiting, wife of Charles E. Whiting, Winona Co., Iowa
7. Alonzo Scurlock, John Scurlock, DuannaWilborn, the wife of ______, Wilbourn and Adell
Scurlock who are the children of Rebecca Scurlock, deceased of Johnson Co., TX
8. James Criner, Samuel Criner, Nancy Farriss, wife of Thomas Farris of Johnson Co., TX, children
of Alfred Criner, deceased. All the above are over 21 years of age.
9. Charles Whiting, Eva Pike wife of ____Pike, over 21, and Stella Whiting, between 14 and 21,
Winona County , Iowa and Children of Eliza Whiting.
10. Lena Criner and Calvin Criner ( female ) between 14 and 21, Mrs. John Steele, guardian,
Children of Calvin Criner, deceased.
11. Martha Sue Criner, between 14 and 21, R.L. Pulley, Guardian, only child of McClure Criner,
12. Clara D., Elvalena and Nannie E. Moore, residing in Madison County, Alabama with their father
W.H. Moore, their Guardian, children of Woodson Moore deceased, daughter of the deceased.

After many years and much kind help we have a little on the parents of Nancy McCain, wife of Isaac
Criner. The obituary mentions the land her father lived on, since he did not patent it, and the certificate
was assigned. It seems the Washington records do not show either residence of McCain, nor when nor by whom it was assigned. We presume he died in Shelby County, Alabama, but are by no means

Mr. Prentiss Price of Rogersville, TN sent us numerous items regarding John Criner-land grants, etc.
He also sent this:

Hawkins County, Tennessee. Deeds 1-90, from old Deed Book E page #70. 25th March 1791,
( Registered 2 March 1792 ) Robert McHean of Hawkins Territory South of the River Ohio, to Enock
Morrisett of same County adjoining Captain Lee. James Ford and Thomas(X) MOss, witnesses. Signed also by Jean (X) McKean, who relinquishes her right of dower. Proved December Term 1791,
James Ford.

10 March 1792. James Dixon, Senior and ( Ann Dixon ) to John Morresette. James Ford and Robert
McCaine, witnesses. ( Ibid 1-101 from E, page 80)

Madison County, Alabama Census of 1816, shows Robert McCain.

Mr. Will F Frank, now deceased of Birmingham, was very much interested in preserving history and especially Shelby County, Alabama. At one time he found some old, old papers in the Court House in
Columbiana, which he had copied and gave us copies. When we asked the Probate Judge about them, he had no idea where they were.." Maybe up in the attic", which we were unable to investigate. Mr. Frank said he had to use high school girls and in one or two places they seem to have misread Jane, as James. But as Isaac Criner's receipt was among the papers, it is very evident that this Jane
was the widow of Robert McCain, and that they were the parents of Nancy McCain Criner.

A little more work needs to be done in Tennessee, to determine whether or not Robert McCain mentioned there, whose share was paid to an attorney in fact, I think I remember having been told, but cannot now find a reference...that there was a suit and settlement of this estate delayed. However, note that in 1798 this Robert was to be " schooled " and Nancy born in 1802, but in the age of young
marriages she could have been the child of a young father. More search in Tennessee McCains need to be done. 
179 " Dame Family Genealogy " being Descendants of George Dame of Hanover, Germany.

George John Dame came to the American Colonies as a stowaway on a ship bound for Charleston, South Carolina and was indentured to a carpenter to work off his passage, which he did, then he married the carpenter's daughter.

The descendants of this couple are now found in many states of the United States.

This genealogy was researched, typed and distributed to members of this Dame Family by:
Helen Morse Dame, 4331 Chowen Avenue So., Minneapolis, MN in March 1940. The title page was composed by William H. Dame, 11th generation descendant of John Dam-Dame-Damme line of New Hampshire and given to Della Dame Edmunds of Salt Lake City, Utah for presentation to the LDS Genealogical Library in Salt Lake City, Utah on the 28th of January 1974.

DAME-Virginia, Tennessee and Kentucky Families

In the year 1769, Augusta County, Virginia was divided, all territory south of the Mary's River and to the west as far as Virginia extended, was included in the new county of Botetourt. The county seat of the new county was Fincastle. At this time, the settlers of this portion were Scots-Irish, Dutch, German, Swiss with a few English coming from the east and south of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The first permanent settlement by white people in this section of the country which became Augusta County and later Botentourt was made by natives of Germany in 1726 on the Shenandoah River, a few miles below the present village of Fort Republic. Also, a smaller settlement of German settlers for Lancaster County, Pennsylvania made their home in this section.

Between 1769 and the beginning of the American Revolution found great progress in the settlement and development of southwestern Virginia. The opening guns of the Revolution found this section in possession of people that might properly be termed the bravest, heartiest of the races, most fearless and determined patriots and advoctes of liberty to be found in America.

The first settlers were people seeking refuge from political and religious persecution. Educated to an unusual degree at the time, these
people were lovers of religion and political liberty, ready at all times to stake their lives and fortunes to attain these objects.

The little town of Fincastle lies in a large valley, surrounded in the distance by hugh, rolling mountains, blanketed with a canopy of forest trees. During the early days of the Revolution, George Dame, pioneer, who is said by his descendants to have come from Germany to America, served his new county in the field of battle. Revolutionary records are not available although their is recorded one John Dame from Virginia, who served as a private in Captain Hill's Company, 7th Virginia Regiment, commanded by Colonel Alexander McClenachan. His name is first borne on the company muster roll with the date of 20 May 1777, and he was discharged February 2, 1778. The county in which he resided is not shown, although it is known that Colonel Alexander McClenachan was a native of Botentourt County which places John Dame in the same general locality. The collection of Revolutionary War records in the United States War Department in Washington is far from complete, and it is possible that George Dame fought also in these same ranks. The John Dame on record may have been a brother or there could even be a mistake in the given name in the records.

It has not been possible to trace the exact home of this early family, known to have lived in or about Fincastle, in as much as early land surveys of Botetourt County were burned during the Civil War.

George Dame was doubtless of English descent, his family having fled into Germany from English religious persecution and thence sailed to the new world where religious freedom was assured. Nothing is known of his wife although the name of Margaret Dame appears in the 1810 Census records of Botentourt County, Virginia, age 45 or over and head of household. It is entirely possible that she was then the widow of George Dame. Jacob Dame's name also appears in this same record.

George Dame was by trade a brick and stone mason, an ardent Whig in his political views and was a very earnest and consistent Christian man whose membership was probably in the Methodist Church. He was the father of John, born in 1785, and George Jacob, born 1786. These are the only known children, although there is a record of David Dame having married Margaret Cressir, daughter of Matthias Cressir in Botentourt County, Virginia in the year of 1802. This David Dame was probably another brother, in as much as the name David has followed through both families of John and George Jacob. Both these brothers learned the tanners trade in Fincastle.

180 George John DAME fought in the Revolutionary War of 1776 under the name of JOHN DAME. A private
in Capt. Hill's Company, 7th Virginia Regiment, commanded by Col. Alexander McClenanhan. John's name
is included on the muster roll of 20 May 1777, he was discharged on the 2nd of February 1778.

George John DAME was of English decent. His ancestors fled into Germany from England when religious
persecution was rampant. 
DAME George John
181 " Dame Family Genealogy " being Descendants of George Dame of Hanover, Germany.

George John Dame came to the American Colonies as a stowaway on a ship bound for Charleston, South Carolina and was indentured to a carpenter to work off his passage, which he did, then he married the carpenter's daughter.

The descendants of this couple are now found in many states of the United States.

This genealogy was researched, typed and distributed to members of this Dame Family by:
Helen Morse Dame, 4331 Chowen Avenue So., Minneapolis, MN in March 1940. The title page was composed by William H. Dame, 11th generation descendant of John Dam-Dame-Damme line of New Hampshire and given to Della Dame Edmunds of Salt Lake City, Utah for presentation to the LDS Genealogical Library in Salt Lake City, Utah on the 28th of January 1974.

DAME-Virginia, Tennessee and Kentucky Families

In the year 1769, Augusta County, Virginia was divided, all territory south of the Mary's River and to the west as far as Virginia extended, was included in the new county of Botetourt. The county seat of the new county was Fincastle. At this time, the settlers of this portion were Scots-Irish, Dutch, German, Swiss with a few English coming from the east and south of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The first permanent settlement by white people in this section of the country which became Augusta County and later Botentourt was made by natives of Germany in 1726 on the Shenandoah River, a few miles below the present village of Fort Republic. Also, a smaller settlement of German settlers for Lancaster County, Pennsylvania made their home in this section.

Between 1769 and the beginning of the American Revolution found great progress in the settlement and development of southwestern Virginia. The opening guns of the Revolution found this section in possession of people that might properly be termed the bravest, heartiest of the races, most fearless and determined patriots and advoctes of liberty to be found in America.

The first settlers were people seeking refuge from political and religious persecution. Educated to an unusual degree at the time, these
people were lovers of religion and political liberty, ready at all times to stake their lives and fortunes to attain these objects.

The little town of Fincastle lies in a large valley, surrounded in the distance by hugh, rolling mountains, blanketed with a canopy of forest trees. During the early days of the Revolution, George Dame, pioneer, who is said by his descendants to have come from Germany to America, served his new county in the field of battle. Revolutionary records are not available although their is recorded one John Dame from Virginia, who served as a private in Captain Hill's Company, 7th Virginia Regiment, commanded by Colonel Alexander McClenachan. His name is first borne on the company muster roll with the date of 20 May 1777, and he was discharged February 2, 1778. The county in which he resided is not shown, although it is known that Colonel Alexander McClenachan was a native of Botentourt County which places John Dame in the same general locality. The collection of Revolutionary War records in the United States War Department in Washington is far from complete, and it is possible that George Dame fought also in these same ranks. The John Dame on record may have been a brother or there could even be a mistake in the given name in the records.

It has not been possible to trace the exact home of this early family, known to have lived in or about Fincastle, in as much as early land surveys of Botetourt County were burned during the Civil War.

George Dame was doubtless of English descent, his family having fled into Germany from English religious persecution and thence sailed to the new world where religious freedom was assured. Nothing is known of his wife although the name of Margaret Dame appears in the 1810 Census records of Botentourt County, Virginia, age 45 or over and head of household. It is entirely possible that she was then the widow of George Dame. Jacob Dame's name also appears in this same record.

George Dame was by trade a brick and stone mason, an ardent Whig in his political views and was a very earnest and consistent Christian man whose membership was probably in the Methodist Church. He was the father of John, born in 1785, and George Jacob, born 1786. These are the only known children, although there is a record of David Dame having married Margaret Cressir, daughter of Matthias Cressir in Botentourt County, Virginia in the year of 1802. This David Dame was probably another brother, in as much as the name David has followed through both families of John and George Jacob. Both these brothers learned the tanners trade in Fincastle.

Shortly before the War of 1812, John had married Elizabeth Oyler of Franklin County, Virginia and George Jacob had married Elizabeth Kittinger. The latter couple had four children, Thomas b. 1809; George b. 1811; John b. 1812; and Katie, b.1813, all in Virginia. It is said that these brothers heard the tales sent back by a friend about the paradise that was called the Kentucky territory. George Jacob, in his eagerness to find this paradise, left a large Virginia farm, never returning to claim it. So the little group of the two Dame brothers and their families, probably accompanied by their close Virginia friends, the Moores and Johnsons who settled near the Kentucky family later, set our from their Botentourt County, Virgnia home, through the wilderness, crossing the rugged mountains, doubless through the Cumberland Gap in quest of a new home in the West where land was plentiful, forests abounded with wild game and furnished logs for their early pioneer homes.

John and his wife found the Sequatchie Valley in Tennessee to their liking and stopped off there for their future home. During the War of 1812, John entered the service of his country and fought in the Southland under General Andrew Jackson. On the close of hostilities, he walked from Mobile, Alabama to his home. Later he removed with his family to Kentucky, but not liking that state as well as Tennessee, he returned to the Sequatchie Valley where his descendants live today.

George Jacob, know later through his life as Jacob Dame, although buried by the name George J. Dame, and his little family pressed further into the west after leaving his brother in Tennessee and continued until they reached Northwest Kentucky, settling in what later became Muhlenberg
County, Kentucky. Shortly after settling in their newly adopted home, Elizabeth ( Kittinger ) Dame passed away, leaving her husband and four small children. Elizabeth's grave is said to be in what is McLean County now as Muhlenberg County was later divided and part of it became McLean. Several of the older members of the Kentucky family remember having seen her grave, but younger ones have failed to find it and it is feared that the marker may have ben removed from the spot.

On March 27,1817, George Jacob married (2) Sarah Musgrave ( or Musgrove ), W. Henderson performing the marriage rites as recorded by the Kentucky Historical Society, early U.S. Census reports show that Sarah Musgrove was born in North Carolina.
Dated 25 July 1842, copy of contract with John Dame, Sr. giving title to his land in Marion County, Tennessee of about 244 acres to his sons Valentine, John Dames (decd ) heirs, Andrew, George, David, Daniel; and to his daughters Malinda Walker wife of Saunder Walker, Polly Kerzy wife of Isaac Kerzy, she having now decd, Elizabeth Ridley wife of Elisha Ridley, Sarah Rogers wife of Stephen Rogers, and Lucinda Dame. There is a condition that his children will maintain him and their mother, Elizabeth Dame, so long as they both live.

DAVIS Elizabeth
Jacques de Chiel ( Shiell ) was born in Lyons, France after the massacre of St. Bartholome. He emigrated to Scotalnd and took the name of Shiell. He married Elizabeth Robesoune on May 16,1599 in Edinburg,
Scotland. He died in 1625. The French American Family of Dashiell were large plantation owners with
early patents in Delaware and Baltimore. This family gave the land for St. Bartholomew's P.E. Church.
As a people they were historically minded, generous, with a keen sense of public spirit which is continuing with this generation.
DE CHIEL James ( Jacques )
From Bartlett's Quotations:
Cosmus, Duke of Florence, was wont to say of perfidious friends " We read that we ought to forgive our enemies; but we do not read that we ought to forgive our friends ".

The first date we have in the family history is 910 A.D. when one Raniero ( Rainier? ) was living. The Italian historian Gammurini says, " The Gherardi were among the most ancient and wealthy families of Tuscany in 900 A.D. :" Family legend states that Anaes, a survivior of the siege of TROY, wandered for seven years after it's overthrow, until he came to what was called Latium, ( now Italy ). He brought with him his father and small son Ascanius, for whom the province of Tuscany is named. Anaes married the daughter of King Turnus of Latium, who was killed in battle. Anaes succeeded him as King of Latium and divided his lands amoung his descendents. To Gherardo, h e gave the land of He/truria, where Florence now stands.

The family flourished until the year 1125. Then, during a political upheaval, the patrician families were driven into exile. In order to remain in Florence, the Gherardini renounced their patrician rank and became mere citizens. Later they were restored to their ancient honors, became very wealthy, and served the Republic of Florence both in the senate and on the battlefield. Three were Consuls of the Republic; others died as leaders of the Republican armies in the many civil wars. Confiscations and losses during the civil wars impoverished the Gherardini, and they also suffered much by the destruction of their property in the great fire of Florence in 1303. From the 14th century onwards they seem to have played a smaller part in the history of Florence. At different times, between 1000 and 1400, individuals of the family emigrated, passing into France, England, Wales, Ireland, Cracow, and the Canary Islands. Those who stayed in Florence became extinct, as did those in France and Cracow. It is pleasant to record that the Gherardini of Florence and the Irish " Geraldines " did not loose touch with each other. There are records of visits back and forth until the late 1500's. 
DE GHERARDINI Cosmus " The Great "
Otterus was " an Italian Baron of the Gherardini of Florence, Lord in Tuscany " and went from Florence into
Normandy, then to England and Wales about 1100. AD. He was son of Cosmus, the Great Duke of Florence"-Carr P. Collins, Jr. " Royal Ancestors of Magna Charta Barons " ( Dallas, 1959 ) Page #103
Some records say that Otho went to Normandy in the caravan of King Canute of England who had passed through Florence on his way home from a pilgrimage to Rome. It is said that he came into England later with Edward the Confessor when he was called back from exile to be King of England. There is an old lyric quote in English records which says " The Earldom which to Otho brave, the Saxon sainted Edward gave ". His son, Otho FitzOTHOER appears in 1058 in the Domesday Book as a Baron of England. 
The origin of the name was " de Chiel " of Lyonnais and Bugey and at Thazay on the Azenques ( a chateau with a drawbridge on the Rohne, France ). The progenitor was a High Chief Justice. Ancient strains from this family go back to 1025 by marriage to Lady Gibergia, daughter of Vuillelmus Vergo ( Hugo ).

DE LION Egcherine
of the family of Gerardini of Tuscanny. Came to England and Wales at the time of Edward the

Gerald was the ancestor the the Fitzgeralds, Fitzmaurices, Carews, Redmonds and Keatings of Ireland,
among others. Otho was so powerful that his favor with the King was greatly resented by the native Norman nobles. He possessed three lordships in Surrey, Three in Buckinghamshire, Two in Berkshire,
Four in Middlesex, nine in Wiltshire, Two in Hampshire, three in Dorset, and one in Somerset. With him, the family name was changed to Geraldini. Otho's son, Walter FitzOtho Geraldini, was treated as a fellow
countryman by the Normans after the conquest of England in 1066. He succeeded to all of Otho's estates and his name is shown in the Domesday Book of 1087 that listed all the landholders in England. Windsor Castle, a great gray pile overlooking the Thames, had just been built amid the forests of Berkshire, and Walter was appointed it's first castellan, as well as warden of the forest. He was, it is clear, one of the most Norman of the Normans--a race renowned for it's adaptability, no less than for it's valor and ferocity.

Windsor Castle continued as a baronage for Otho's descendants for centuries, until it passed out of
existence due to lack of male heirs in the direct line. An interesting footnote is the story of how the current English Royal Family, the House of Windsor, took their name from this vacated baronage. During the First World War, there was enormous anti-german sentiment in England and the King wanted to distance himself from the German House of Hanover, their name at the time. Since the Gherardini family can be traced as the founders of the House of Hanover, it was very convenient that Gerald deWinsor, baron of England, was related both to the English Royal Family and the Florentine Gheradinis, hence the House of Hanover. This provided justification ( after much research ) for the German House of Hanover to become the more politically correct English HOuse of Windsor, which they remain to this day.
