   Notes   Linked to 

6th Earl of Shrewsbury, Earl of Waterford, George was the richest and most powerful man in England
owning hudnreds of great houses and large estates, a widower with six children. The familial marriage ties were further strenghtened by 2 other marriages. Mary Cavendish ( 12 years old ) to Gilbert Talbot
and Henry Cavendish ( 18 years old ) to Grace Talbot ( 8 years old ). George married the Lady
Gertrude Manners on April 28, 1539 in London. His first wife, Gertrude, daughter of the Earl of Rutland
died in 1566 and two years later he married Elizabeth, daughter of John Hardwick, the celebrated " Bess of Hardwick".
The high esteem in which the Earl and Countess of Shrewsbury were held by Elizabeth I was that she appointed them as Guardians to the captive Mary, Queen of Scotts in 1569, and she was frequently kept at Chatsworth while under their guard. Mary remained in his charge for fourteen years, most of which were spend at Sheffield Castle. Acrimonious relations with his wife, the strong-will " Bess of Hardwick ", led to
rumours of an " improper intimacy " between Shrewsbury and his prisoner.

21 April 1998: Melissa Alexander ( mada@cmc.net ) phoned me with info she got from posting my
query about Nancy Ann Thompson on the Rootsweb group. Thompson mailing list. She got an email
from Diane Wilson, 3rd great grandniece of Jacob Brown. ( dwilson50@aol.com with responses from two
BROWN descendants. They had a conflicting birthdate, however Scott Brown, who lives in Georgetown,
IL ( brownie@k-in.com) says that her name was Nancy Miers Ann Thompson, that she was born in Washington Co., TN 25 March 1781, that she married Jacob Brown, and that she died 9th August 1858
in Georgetown, Vermilion, IL. And that her parents were William Thompson b. abot 1754 and Mary Miers
( the first name Margaret has also been given ) b. abot 1752. Bob BROWN Bbrownsr@aol.com has a conflicting birthdate of 1786 but the death date is the same. Bob Brown cites the book by Wendell Stream on the Brown and Thompson families as his source. Melissa will send my " snail mail " address on to Diane Wilson and I hope Diane will write me.

Letter from Don L. King, dated 5/29/04 after review of the Davidson Genealogical Report.

RE: Zillah-Looking more at the letter, I tend to agree with Davidson, it is slightly different from a T. Also, the grandaughters named Zillah is a powerful argument. I found this definition ( it's of course biblical):
zil'-z ( tsillah; sella ): One of Lamech's wives ( Gen 4:19, 22, 23), The name is perhaps connected with
Tsel, " shadow ".

It's interesting to note that even Chisholm and Lillie thought it was Tillah, and quite possibly they might have pronounced it that way, and the spelling followed. Either way, I think it's a real stretch to connect Tillah with Sarah. I believe Tillah was a second wife, following the death of Sarah, most probably after
childbirth. Benjamins mother however, was certainly Zillah ( Tillah ) White, as his first born daughter was named Zilla.
WHITE Tillah " Zillah "

In 1634, Susanna joined the First Church of Charleston, Mass. 
WHITLEY *Susanna " Susan "
616 John Wiley was the oldest surviving son of Alexander Wiley and Lousiana ( or Louisa Ann ) HOUSE.
He was born in Illinois ( Probably Jasper Co. ) about 1844, according to census information. The
family moved to Texas Co., Missouri in 1858 and stayed there until the start of the Civil War when
they returned to Illinois. It is not known if John Wiley fought in the War.

John and Susan were married on 7 April 1863 in Coles Co., IL in the middle of the Civil War. According
to the " Goodspeed History of Polk County, Missouri ( 1889)". they Wiley families moved from Illinois
to Polk Co, Missouri about 1870. However, these families have not yet been located on any 1870
census. Some of these Wiley family members are known to have lived in Wishart, MO during the
period of 1875-95. The John Wiley family is shown on the 1880 Census of Polk Co,, MO ( #37-37,
Jackson Township) and Johns occupation is shown as a " huxter " or a peddler. John Wiley probably
died in Polk County sometime before the 1900 Census was taken. His wife and children are shown in
the 1900 living in Stotts City, Vineyard Township, Lawrence Co., MO. Several of John and Susan's
children moved to the Oklahoma Indian Territory and some settled near Vian in Sequoyah County.
Their oldest daughter Martha married Frank Roark and they lived in Flint Township in the Cherokee
Nation before 1900. In 1910, Susan Alice Wiley was living with her son Michael in Adair Co., OK.
In her later years Susan Alice Wiley moved to Sapulpa, OK where whe died on Christmas Day, 1920.

Descendents of John Woodson, submitted by Deborah D. Stanley

John Woodson was born in 1586 in Dorsetshire, England and died April 18,1644 in Fleur de Hundred on the James River, VA. He married Sarah WINSTON in 1619 in England.

Notes from " Adventurers of Purse and Person ":
John WOODSON and his wife Sarah came to Virginia in 1619, in the George and settled at Flowerdew Hundred, known by February 1624/25, when the muster was taken, as Peirsey's Hundred. They had been fellow passengers on the ship with Govenor Sir George Yeardley and his wife Temperance Flowerdew, Lady Yeardley. No further documentatary evidence has been found relating to them until 1660. A family account written about 1785 by Charles Woodson ( 1711-1795 ), son of Tarleton Woodson, however survives and supplies details which link the first generations of Woodsons and Robert Woodson, John
Woodson, Sr. and John Woodson, Jr. who were amoung the tithables at Curles in 1679.

Tradition states that John WOODSON was killed in the Indian Massacre of 18 April 1644. His children were very young and Mrs. Sarah Woodson remarried ( 2 ) DUNWELL, who died leaving her with a daughter Elizabeth, and ( 3 ) JOHNSON. As a widow again she lieft a combination inventory and nuncupative will which was recorded 17 January 1660/1. This made bequests to John Woodson, Robert Woodson, Deborah Woodson ( apparently under age ) and Elizabeth Dunwell ( under age ). John Woodson was the implied executor.

The family record of 1785, with no evidence to the contrary presented during two centureis, has posted this descent: issue: John, Robert, Deborah, left a cow and a feather bed by her mother, not mentioned in the 1785 account. 
From Descendents of John Woodson as submitted by Deborah Stanley

Robert WOODSON deposed, June 1680, that he was " 46 years of age or thereabouts", and 1 June 1696, that he was aged about 61. He married Elizabeth Ferris. On 21 October 1687 Robert Woodson, Richard Ferris and three others patented 1780 acres on White Oak Swamp in Varina Parish and the same day he, John Woodson, Sr. and two others patented 470 acres, also in Henrico County. He held 1157 acres in Henrico County, 1704 and died after 1 October 1707

Notes from Cubbie's Ancestors @ robinson@robinsonservice.com:, their entry # 10429 by
John Elder Robison.

One very curious note about William and his wife, Sarah Allen. They named one of their children
Shadrach. Where did this name come from, as it was not found in the ancestors of William Woodson's
family, but is found in the MIMS family. Robert Woodson, brother of William, had a daughter Elizabeth
who married Shadrack MIMS as his 2nd wife. Elizabeth was the greatgrandmother of Jesse and Frank James.
William Woodson, late of Buckingham County, now of Cumberland County, owned in fee simple ____
acres of land on the branches of Randolph's Creek in said Buckingham County. The land is now in the possession of John Bagby. Drury Woodson, son of William, claimed the land was his by reason of ___
gift. Jesse Woodson, another son of William, claimed his father had promised his 100 acres on the
___________occasion of his ( Jesse's ) marriage. An agreement was reached between William,
Drury and Jesse. ________mentioned was Shadrack Woodson, another son of William. The agreement was signed by William Woodson on 17 March 1783. ( Cumberland County Deed Book #6,page # 149
