     WALTER LEE SCOTT (1886-1937) who married (1908) Ruth Fontaine (1887-1976)
was the father of seven children: Walter Charles Scott, Rena Lou Parks, Jessie
Virginia Williams, Mary Fontaine Foote, William Fontaine Scott, Jack Jeffers
Scott and James Fontaine Scott.  This book is for them and their families.
     Walter Lee Scott, was the son of CHARLES LEE SCOTT (b 1861) who married
(1885) Louisa Adalisa "Miss Ladd" Hardaway. They lived on a farm in Stith
Valley, Meade County, Kentucky.
     Charles Lee Scott was the son of HENRY WINFIELD SCOTT (May 19, 1815 -
May 31, 1886) who married Eleanor Purcell. Henry W. Scott was the first Scott
to be born in Kentucky.
     Henry Winfield Scott was one of two sons born to WILLIAM SCOTT and
Catherine Ament.
     William Scott had been born in Charles County, Maryland, to THOMAS SCOTT,
a Revolutionary soldier, and his wife Alice Glover. Thomas and Alice migrated
to North Carolina in the early 1790's after Thomas' mother died.
     In 1793, Thomas Scott got a land grant on Panther Creek in Hardin County
Kentucky for 637 acres, and one on Rough Creek for 256 acres. Sometime around
1800 Thomas and Alice joined the thousands of settlers heading over the
mountains to Kentucky.
     Their son William met and married Catherine Ament in Kentucky in 1814.
She had been born in Virginia. His father, Thomas, lived long enough to see
his grandson, Henry W. Scott. Alice Glover Scott lived another 36 years. This
book will be about the ancestors and descendants of the Kentucky SCOTTS.
                              WALTER L. SCOTT
                       by Walter C. Scott, his son
     Walter L. Scott (January 1886-March 1937) was the oldest son of
Charles L. Scott and Laddie [Louisa Adalisa] Hardaway Scott. His younger
brothers were Winfield, Harold, Fletcher and a sister, Margaret. He grew
up in Stith Valley and attended the Shumate School. He liked to hunt and
trap and was an expert marksman. He liked to read and always wished he
could have been a pioneer.
     In 1908 he married Ruth Fontaine, the daughter of C.B. Fontaine and
Irene Stith Fontaine. Ruth was teaching at Shumate School at that time.
He started farming on the Jesse Stith farm in 1909. Jesse Stith's wife
Lucinda and his Grandmother Margaret were sisters and his Grandfather
Jim Hardaway was buried in a small grave yard on the hill behind the
house. The farm was a part of the 430 acres bought by Richard Stith in
1811. Richard was the first Stith to settle in the county and had been
here since about 1804. Walter and his father bought the 240 acre farm
for $1267.00 in 1910 when it was sold at the court house door to settle
the estate. Jesse Stith had owned slaves and his wife Lucinda had plenty
of help to grow every flower, shrub and fruit available at that time.
However, by the time Walter got the farm it had been rented for many
years and was as poor as any in the county.
     He raised corn and tobacco and an extra good garden; kept a few
cows, a few hogs, sheep, and some chickens and turkeys. Of course he
kept horses to do the farm work and raised a colt now and then and sold
it. He always had plenty for the family to eat because he raised it and
stored it or Ruth canned it. There was never much money, but kerosene
for the lamps was 10 cents a gallon, sugar was 5 or 10 cents a pound but
you could use sorghum molasses, and he raised sorghum cane and made
molasses. Salt was about fifty cents for one hundred pounds and coffee
about a nickel a pound. Taxes for the farm were about $25 a year and
that had to be paid.
     He took the daily paper and there was always something for the
children to read. The Children went to school "rain or shine" and knew
he would come after them if it was raining or snowing. He would be there
at the close of school riding a horse and leading one, with a blanket to
go over each child. It was possible to get three children on one horse
and one in front and one behind him. Most parents kept their children at
home on bad days. Walter C. and Rena Lou went to the two year high
school at Big Spring, riding horseback over the hill to school. They
rented a room at Brandenburg and finished there; Walter C. in 1927, and
Rena Lou in 1928.
     When County Agricultural Agents came to the county the children
joined the 4-H Club. When the U.S. Government started the Rural Electric
Administration, Ruth worked with the County Agent and others in the
county and got Mead County Rural Electric Coop started.
     Walter was elected deputy sheriff in 1934 with Ned Brown as
sheriff, and moved to Brandenburg. He enjoyed working with people. One
of his best friends had this to say about him: "If I asked Walt
something he does not want to tell me, he won't tell me but I won't know
it until he's gone." He was a member of the Big Spring Masonic Lodge,
the Big Spring Methodist Church and a lifetime Democrat. He died in
March of 1937, and his son William F. finished his term.
     Ruth, with two boys still in high school, kept on with the boys
carrying news papers. In 1940 she and son Jack bought the grocery at the
top of the hill, across the street directly in front of the street going
down to the river. With Jim helping, she and Jack ran the store until
Jim finished High School.
     Ruth got an appointment to West Point Military Academy for William
after he went to the U. of K. one [and a half years,] Walter C. had
graduated from U. of K., was married and in Agricultural work, Rena Lou
was married and living in Elizabethtown, Jessie Virginia was married and
living in Washington, D.C., Mary was married and living in Breckinridge
County, [William joined the Air Force after graduation] Jack married and
joined the Navy, and James F. joined the Army. Both Jack and Jim
finished at U. of K. after the war and Jim got married there.
                           RUTH FONTAINE SCOTT
         by Jessie S. Williams and Rena S. Parks, her daughters
Ruth Fontaine was born in Paris, Arkansas in 1887. Her family later
moved to Van Buren, Arkansas. Her father, a lawyer, believed in an
education for his children and she was sent to Boarding School. At
sixteen she came back to Kentucky to live in Stith Valley, Meade County,
where she taught in a one-room school.
In 1908 she married Walter Lee Scott and went to live on a farm. To this
union were born seven children. She was not used to farm life but she
quickly learned how to live off the land. There was not much recreation
so she planned her own. Christmas was a tradition. Surrounded by
relatives, good food and a tree decorated by homemade decorations. She
would always organize a Children's Day program at the Methodist Church
about four miles away and reached by driving there in an old surrey. She
would make new clothes for her children and costumes out of feed sacks
or what ever was on hand.
Ruth Fontaine Scott was a remarkable woman--a Woman for all seasons--for
any era in Time.
She had character. She displayed courage, determination, leadership and
independence. All the traits the modern oman wants handed to her, Ruth
achieved by her own intelligence.
In Stith Valley and in meade County, Ruth was a PIONEER. The 4-H Youth
Program, which is a part of the U.S. Dept of Agriculture, was in its
infancy and she became a dynamic leader. She used the opportunity to
educate and to elevate young people. She encouraged them to assume the
rolls of leadership. Her eldest son chose Extension work for his career.
How could any one who went to 4-H camp with HER, forget the experience!
In those days, you didn't pay $40 for 5 days at camp and go riding off
in an air-conditioned bus. You furnished two live chickens, a gallon of
beans, a peck of potatoes and anything that was growing in the garden.
You crawled up in the back of a cattle truck with the chicken coops and
cabbage and rode to camp. An experience that was remembered forever! She
encouraged the young people to excel. She felt the future of Meade
County, Our country and our nation lay in their hands; and, she was
determined that they would be prepared.
Ruth had COURAGE. In the 1930's her Fontaine cousin was molested and
beaten by a black man. Tension was high in Brandenburg. Women spoke in
hushed voices; men spoke of lynching. Ruth stood up and spoke out--she
said this was a matter to be decided by the laws of the land, she
further said that the black community should be reassured of their
Ruth had DETERMINATION. When her husband became Sheriff of Meade County
she left the Valley, that had been settled by and named for her
ancestors. Later when her husband died while in office, she didn't ring
her hands or cry and say, "What am I going to do with seven children?"
When asked by the leaders of the community if thy could help she
requested a meeting--she asked to be appointed Sheriff, or that her 18-
year-old son [Bill] be appointed. Her son became Sheriff before he was
old enough to vote.
Ruth was a POLITICIAN. She was a Democrat and believed it was the
people's party. When her son wanted to attend the United States Military
Academy at West Point, she asked help in obtaining a congressional
Ruth was PATRIOTIC. During the years of World War II, three sons were in
the service of their country; but she did not sit at home and brood. She
opened her home to soldiers and their wives when housing was so scarce
at Fort Knox. In 1943 she rode the train to Louisville 5 days a week and
attended College so she could teach during the teacher shortage. Later
there was a need for civil workers in Washington; and she moved to the
capital city. After 10 years in Washington she came back to Kentucky and
taught school for 2 years. She then studied Art and painted pictures.
many of these paintings hang in her children's and friends' homes.
Ruth was INTELLIGENT. She read everything. She could talk sensibly,
honestly and candidly on most any subject. And she expected those around
her to do likewise.
She enjoyed traveling--She and a friend rode a Greyhound bus to
California. They stopped along the way to visit friends and relatives
and points of interest. It took them six weeks to get back to Kentucky.
When her son was a teacher at the Royal Air Force Academy, she flew to
England and took a trip to Paris, France, by herself.
Ruth had a sense of LOYALTY to her friends and family. Her ties were
strong and she called many people in our county, "Cousin." Her knowledge
of the ancestors of many families made her a living depository of
genealogy. She was an organizing member of the Ambrose Meador Chapter,
Daughters of the American Revolution.
Ruth was a DEVOTED MOTHER in the truest sense of the word. She was
nominated Kentucky Mother of the Year.
She leaves Heirs that are accomplished in every profession and field.
Seven children, Twenty grandchildren and Twenty-seven Great
Ruth Fontaine Scott left a legacy; she inspired her family and friends
to excel; to serve their country and their fellow man; and, to love God.
                            JOHN SCOTT - "INDIAN QUARTER"
     JOHN SCOTT 1 of "Indian Quarter", Planter of Charles County, Maryland
                              SCOTT FAMILY TREE
     The SCOTTs probably came to Charles County, Maryland, from Scotland.
Maryland was the colony of the Lord Baron of Baltimore, Cecil Calvert. A
mission was established in Port Tobacco in 1642 to convert the indians living
in the area, but it lasted only two years. With the Reformists coming to power
in England in 1644, the Calverts lost the colony. The area began to grow by
the time of the Restoration of Maryland to the Calverts by Oliver Cromwell in
1657. All land along the Port Tobacco River was patented between 1649 and
1660. The main crop was tobacco, lots and lots of tobacco.
     Early settlers came to St. Mary's County in 1634. The Lord Proprietor of
the Colony divided the land into Proprietary Manors. Grants of several
thousand acres were given to friends of the Proprietor. Manors were subdivided
into "Hundreds". Wiccommico Hundred (1642), Pykawaxen Hundred (1649),
Riverside Hundred (1653), Chingamuxen Hundred (1653), and Nanjemoy Hundred
(1657), became Charles County when it was founded in 1658. Cecil Calvert named
it for his son, Charles Calvert. The original proclamation seemed intended to
include all land west of the Patuxent.
     There was great political struggle in the years just prior to the
formation of Charles County between the Puritans and the King. A heavy tax on
tobacco had caused a rebellion of citizens. When Charles II returned to the
throne in May 1660, the rebellion collapsed.
     In 1663, the Assembly ordered County Commissioners of each county to
build stocks and a pillory near the courthouse and a ducking stool at some
convenient place and also to provide irons from branding malefactors: H was
for hog stealers, R for runaway slaves, M for murderers and T for thieves.
There was also a whipping post near the "court house" although court was held
in a local inn until 1674 when a court house was built.
     There was a John SCOTT who emigrated to Maryland in 1666, bringing his
wife Elizabeth and two children: John and Elizabeth. A Samuel SCOTT came that
same year. It is possible that this John was the ancestor of the American
SCOTTs presented below but there is no proof.
     A John Scott registers his brand mark in 1697 and a William Scott
registers his in 1703.  But it is not until another John SCOTT 1 and his wife,
Catherine, purchased "Indian Quarter" from Thomas and Alice Harris in Charles
County, Maryland in 1713 that the line can be traced.
     Although good court records were kept earlier, because of chaotic
conditions in the Colony between 1689 and 1692, during its change from a
Proprietary Colony to a Royal Colony, records were not well kept.
     From the very beginning, Protestants and Catholics in Charles County were
about equal. Most Protestants were Presbyterians. In 1689, when protestant
William and Mary came to the throne of England, Lord Baltimore, a Catholic,
was again in difficulty. In 1692, the Colony's governor had the Assembly pass
an act establishing the Protestant religion of the Church of England as the
established religion of Maryland. In 1689, a letter was sent to William and
Mary from supporters. Among the 70 signers was a SCOTT ancestor.
     In 1690, Mathew Tennison reported that the indians told him they were
given guns to kill Protestants.  Mathew told them there were too many. By
1700, no indians were left in the area.
     By 1692, Reverend Oliver Burch and his wife, Barbara Scott, were settled
near Trinity Parish Church where he was the rector. The early SCOTTs lived in
this parish. John SCOTT 1's plantation, "Indian Quarter", purchased in 1713,
was located about a mile from the church. Scotts owned pews in the church and
their children were baptized in it.
     Brides of 15 and 16 were common in the early days of the colonies. There
was also a shocking rapidity of remarriage. Estates were often settled by the
widow and her new husband in less than a year.  The reason was simple. There
were more men than women. The census of 1712 showed 933 masters and taxable
men in Charles County, 783 white women, 1507 children and 724 negroes.
     JOHN SCOTT 1, who died in 1724, left "Indian Quarter" to his two sons,
John 2 and William.  Here is an abstract of his will:
      John Scott 1, to son John 2 and to his son John; to son William
      and his daughter Ann; to granddaughters Ann, Rebecca, Catherine
      and grandsons John and Thomas. Wife Catherine. Land, "Indian
      Quarter", to two sons, John 2 and William.
      wit: Geo. Brett, John Williams and William Watkins

     There was a creek which served as a natural dividing line running through
the middle of the tract. JOHN 2 got the upper half and William the lower half.
JOHN 2's wife's name was CATHERINE but no maiden name has been found for her.
     JOHN SCOTT 1's son JOHN 2 died in 1741. His wife's name was ELIZABETH.
No will has been found. His estate was finally settled in 1743. His widow,
Elizabeth, and eight children were at the settlement, viz: Katherine, WILLIAM
3 (the ancestor), Justinian, Elizabeth, John, Mary, Thomas and Zachariah
    In the mid-1700s, the manor system was used in Maryland. We find WILLIAM 3
(son of John 2) and CHRISTIAN SCOTT and Ann, wife of the older William Scott
listed in St Mary's County, Chaptico, Jan 1768: State of His Lordship's Manor:
#47 date of lease: Dec 25, 1753; to: WILLIAM SCOTT 3; acres: 25; tenant in
possession: lessee; rent: 0-2-6; fine: 1-10-0; now [1768] held by: WILLIAM
SCOTT 3, 41, CHRISTIAN SCOTT, 38, Eleanor, 16 in 1768.
#49 date of lease: Dec 1746; to: (Ann Scott); acres: 52; tenant in possession:
Elizabeth Scott; rent 0-5-0; fine 1-0-0; now [1768] held by: Elizabeth Love,
42, and Walter Burch, 23.
      Note: William Scott (wife Ann d 1763), uncle of WILLIAM SCOTT 3
      (CHRISTIAN), died about 1746, the date lease #49 was made. Walter
      Burch was the only son of Rebecca (Scott) and Thomas Burch. Her
      sister, Elizabeth Scott md William Love in 1747. Their only
      brother, John Scott, died in 1763.

         The will of Ann Scott was filed in Charles County in 1763:

         26 March 1763 Ann Scott, of Charles County, Maryland, widow,
      [of William] to daughter Rebecca Burch - slaves, at her decease to
      granddaughter Ann Burch; to daughters Susanna, Rebecca and
      Margaret Burch; to granddaughter Cathrain Scott one slave, if she
      die, to her brother William, and if he die to his heir; to my
      daughter Elizabeth Love - keep slave until Catherine is 16; to
      granddaughter Ann Love - 1 slave; to her sisters Sara & Margaret;
      to grandson William Scott - 5000 lbs of tobacco; to my
      granddaughter Sara Love, Margaret Love. Executrix Elizabeth Love,
      my daughter. Probate Dec 13, 1763.
      wit: Karrenheppach McPherson, William Mc Pherson
     John Scott 2's son, WILLIAM SCOTT 3, died in 1786 without making a will.
The final settlement for WILLIAM SCOTT 3 was made on October 1786. Named in
the settlement were the widow, Christian Scott and 8 children viz: Eleanor,
Elizabeth, James, THOMAS 4 (the ancestor), Gustavus, Samuel, Sarah and
William, all of age except William who was 17 the 7th of January.
     CHRISTIAN SCOTT's estate was inventoried on the 28th of March 1792.
Eleanor Scott and THOMAS SCOTT 4 sign as next of kin. On 10 June, James Scott,
the administrator of her estate, signed the inventory.
     In 1753, the rector of Trinity Parish Church opened a private school
which continued until 1784. The second and most famous rector was the Reverend
Hatch Dent who became rector in 1786. THOMAS SCOTT 4's older sister Elizabeth
married into the Dent family about that time, naming a son Hatch Dent.
    In 1766 Lord Baltimore ordered the Proprietary Manors in the Province to
be sold. The 1765 Stamp Act was received with great indignation and a
determined resistance by the people of Charles County. Colonists refused to
import anything taxed by this act. In 1774, a shipment of tea was dumped into
Boston harbour by irate citizens. England responded by blockading Boston
harbor. Marylanders joined in the resulting protest, vowing to import no goods
from Great Britain, and agreeing to break relations with Britain.
     In 1774 Benjamin Philpott, brother of CHARITY PHILPOTT GLOVER and the
mother of ALICE GLOVER who married THOMAS SCOTT 4, was on the committee of 100
best known citizens of the county elected to vote for representatives to the
Continental Congress. THOMAS SCOTT 4 served as a private in the Charles County
      The first United States Census, taken in 1790, showed a population of
jus over 20,000. There are six SCOTTs in the Census:

    The move from Charles County had begun.  Brother James moved to Prince
Georges County, selling "Indian Quarter" to his brother Samuel. Gustavus may
have been in Montgomery County. William died sometime before 1810, leaving his
share of land to brother Samuel.
    THOMAS SCOTT 4 and ALICE, and son WILLIAM 5, moved first to North
Carolina. Their sons, Thomas (1795) and Samuel (1798), were born there, their
daughter Joanna was married there.
    Back in Charles County, Maryland, Samuel Scott died in 1810. His daughter,
Harriet Scott, sold "Indian Quarter" soon after. The land had been in the
Scott family nearly 100 years.
    Eleanor married Samuel Dixon right after her mother died in 1792. Sam
Dixon was a Catholic. Eleanor was 40. Sam died in 1796. Elizabeth Dent appears
to have died young. Nothing further is known about sister Sarah Scott.
    Then, in 1793, THOMAS SCOTT 4 got a land grant for 637 acres on Panther
Creek in Hardin County, in Kentucky, and 256 acres on Rough Creek.

          Hardin County Kentucky, May 19, 1809. John Dozier of Ohio

     A plaque on the wall of the Trinity Parish Church states that it is in
memory of Oliver Burch (1646-1729) of King and Queen Parish was the first
minister in the parish and that his wife's name was Barbara Scott. There is no
indication that she was related to our John Scott who was also born about
1650. They did live within a mile or so of each other. One of John Scott's
granddaughters married a Thomas Burch about 1750.
Sons John Scott and William maintained numbered pews in Trinity Parish Church

                        SAMUEL COOKSEY - THE REBEL


   SAMUEL COOKSEY (ca 1650 - 1708), "Coat Back", of Charles County, Maryland

                             COOKSEY FAMILY TREE
   SAMUEL COOKSEY's name first appears in St Mary's records as a witness in
1674. This would make him born at the latest about 1650-1655.
   In 1686, Samuel COOKSEY is on the jury at the witchcraft trial of Hannah
Edwards, she is not guilty. (Vol 34, Maryland Provincial Court Series)
   Puritans from New England had sponsored the Maryland Colony. In 1689 the
settlers became very dissatisfied with absentee landlords, nepotism, etc. A
man named William Joseph was named the head of Maryland and he was a very
strong Catholic.  In 1689, SAMUEL COOKSEY was one of those who took the Oath
of Allegiance. SAMUEL COOKSEY was highly regarded. John Coode raised an army
from Charles County and marched on the capitol in St. Mary's to get Joseph
when the rumor started that the Colony was going to be Catholic controlled.
   This was part of the Glorious Revolution, William and Mary taking over the
throne in England in 1689, which the colonists did not yet know about, and all
sorts of plots going on, like taking oaths to kill King William (by
Catholics). They captured Joseph, who really was not going to do anything, but
orders went out to arrest John Coode and all his men. About third on the list
was SAMUEL COOKSEY.  EDWARD PHILPOTT and Benjamin Posey signed an Oath of
Allegiance to be sent to their Majesties, happy over their support for
Protestants. Not all, however, were happy when the Church of England became
the established religion in Maryland.
   Now Thomas Gerrard, the 'Lord' of the Manor, was a Catholic and St. Mary's
was Catholic, but his wife, Susanna Snow, was Protestant as were his children
by her and John Coode was married to his daughter, Susanna Gerrard.
   In 1692, Mr. Samuel COOKSEY was the Navall Officer of the Potomack District
and rendered his account.
   In 1696, SAMUEL COOKSEY served as attorney for one John Tennison.
   About 1698, Cood led another rebellion and SAMUEL COOKSEY was in trouble.
"Ordered the sheriff of Ann Arundel County to take into his custody Mr. Samuel
COOKSEY whom he is to have ready at the time and place aforesaid." (Maryland
Archives XXIII p 450). COOKSEY was wanted for part in a plot. He had fled to
the Northern Neck of Virginia. "To the Governor of Virginia: apprehend Cood,
Sly, Mason, Clark, COOKSEY and Harpam, 1698." (ibid., p 487). The rebellion
soon collapsed and SAMUEL COOKSEY returned home.
They had seven children, four sons and three daughters. After Samuel Cooksey's
death, Christian married 2) John Lemaster.
    Samuel COOKSEY's will, dated 1708/09, was written in Durham Parish,
Charles County, Maryland. He was a grandfather.
         IN THE NAME OF GOD AMEN I, Samuell COOKSEY in Charles County

                       JUSTINIAN TENNIS(ON) - WITCH-HUNTER


     JUSTINIAN TENNIS (ca 1630 - 1699) of Charles County, Maryland

                             TENNISON FAMILY TREE
     The surname Tennis/Tennisson/Tennyson comes from "son of Dennis'. The
name first appeared on the Humber River in England which flows eastward
between York and Lincoln, emptying into the North Sea. The name John Tennisson
appears in Yorkshire in 1313 and 1361. Alfred, Lord Tennyson is a descendant
of this family.
Arms: Gules, three leopards faces or jessant de lis azure, a bend engrailed
argent. The major color of the shield is blue and the leopards' faces black.
The bend is red. The family motto is "I had rather die than be dishonored."
     Two brothers, John and Justinian Tennis/Tennisson came to Maryland about
1650, probably with Thomas Gerrard's adventurers. Both John and Justinian
Tennis were freeholders.
     A friend of John's younger brother, JUSTINIAN, (from whom the SCOTTS
descend) deposed in 1720 that John Tennison was born in Holland about 1628,
and that his mother was pregnant with JUSTINIAN when they landed in England
where he was born.
     In May 1653, John Tennis and his wife, Elizabeth, made a deposition that
John was 25 years old or thereabouts, born in England (!), that he and his
wife, Elizabeth, came to Maryland before 1653. John got land from Thomas
Gerrard in 1667. In 1673, John Tennison recorded his cattle mark and his
brother Justinian Tennison did the same. Justinian Tennison bought land in
     JUSTINIAN TENNISON got 100 lbs of tobacco for being in an expedition in
1679 against the Nanticoke Indians.
     JUSTINIAN TENNIS(ON) was on the jury at the witchcraft trial of Rebecca
Fowler, wife of John, in 1685.  They found her guilty and she was hanged. (Vol
34 Maryland Provincial Court Series)
     JUSTINIAN TENNISON was on a list of "civill officers and magistrates of
St Mary's County" who signed the Oath of Allegiance in 1690.
     The Johns and Justinians become very confusing. Both brothers John and
Justinian have sons named John and sons named Justinian. This makes three
Johns and three Justinians. Data to identify them is limited. CHRISTIAN
TENNISON, who married SAMUEL COOKSEY, was the daughter of a JUSTINIAN TENNISON
all right, but which one?
     In the beginning it was not known that John Tennison had a brother. This
was because he was listed in the immigrant lists as Justinian DENNIS. "D's"
and "T's" were often interchangeable in old English. Once discovered, here is
his record of immigration:
                       Liber Folio
    Dennis, Barbara       11 526   Transported 1668. Daughter of Justinian.
    Dennis, Jane          11 526   Transported 1668. Daughter of Justinian.
    Dennis, Justinian     11 526   Immigrated 1668.
    Dennis, Justinian Jr. 11 526   Transported 1668. Son of Justinian.
    Dennis, Katherine     11 526   Transported 1668. Wife of Justinian.
    Dennis, Mary          11 526   Transported 1668. Daughter of Justinian.
      (The Early Settlers of Maryland, Gust Skordas, p. 131)
    Jumping ahead, JUSTINIAN TENNIS of Charles County, Maryland, left a will
dated Jan. 23, 1699. Here is his will:
      In the Name of God, Amen, I, JUSTINIAN TENNIS of Charles County
      lying very weake in body but in perfect memory Praise be to All
      mighty God.   I first bequeath my Soule to All mighty God and My
      Saviour Jesus Christ and body to Earth to be decently buried.
      Also I desire my funeral charges and All my debts be fully
      Item  I give my daughter Barbara one shilling.
      Item  I give my daughter Mary one shilling.
      Item  I give my daughter Catherine one shilling.
      Item  I give my daughter Elizabeth one shilling.
      Item  I give my Sonn John Tennis one shilling.
      Item  I give my daughter Sarah one shilling.
      Item  I give my daughter Dracie one shilling.
      Item  I give my grandchild Jno Mansfield a little Gunn when he
      comes to age of Twenty one.
      Item I doe make my deare and Loving Wife [unnamed] my whole
      executrix of all my land, goods and Chattels & all my whole proper
      estate whatsoever and after her decease to fall to my daughter
      Xian [CHRISTIAN] to her and her heirs forever.
      This being my last will and testament Cutting of All former Wills
      and testaments whatsoever as witness my hand and seal this 23rd
      January 1699.    JUSTINIAN TENNIS    Seale
      Wit: Philip Jenkinson  Job Staples  Thomas Simpson

      His daughter Jane died in 1689 and son Justinian in 1687 preceding him
in death. But Barbara and Mary are listed in his will.
     Unfortunately, JUSTINIAN TENNIS failed to give his wife's name
(Katherine) or any married names of his daughters. Most important here is the
mention of grandchild, John Mansfield, not 21. Nine years later, John
Mansfield witnesses the will of SAMUEL COOKSEY. Jane Tennisson, Christian's
sister married Vincent Mansell/Mansfield, both of whom die before 1699. John
then served as a witness to his uncle's will nine years later. Thus, even if
Christian is only mentioned as "Xian" in JUSTINIAN TENNIS' will, this shows
that she was the CHRISTIAN who married SAMUEL COOKSEY.
      The relationship between John and Elizabeth Tennis was tumultuous. In
1654, John Tennis did not pay damages to Mrs. Johnson caused by John Tennis'
wife, Elizabeth, then servant to Mr. Johnson. Later Margaret Pritchard heard
Mrs. Brooks say Mrs. Johnson has beaten her maid 2 hours and Elizabeth Tennis
would say 2 and a half and that Elizabeth Tennis should say that her husband
tore the hair of his head and wisht that she, the said Johnson, would kill
maid and that then she might never kill more. (Vol 34, Maryland Provincial
Court Series, St. Mary's County)
     John bought land, "Persimmon Point", in 1667 from Thomas Gerrard of St.
Clement's Manor where John lived, at the mouth of Backe Creek. In 1678, John
had dispute with Richard Foster about 12 yrs earlier over division of land of
Foster's Neck.
     John Tennis' will St. Mary's dated Dec 20, 1682, names "eldest son John,
son-in-law William Cheshire and his wife Mary, son Matthew. 2 sons, Justinian
and Absalom to divide plantation. In case one died before marriage, ye
survivor to have other share. Executors sons Justinian and Absalom Tennis."
John Tennis was not a poor man. He left silver, fine furniture and Delft
china. He also owned two bibles and several books so he was not illiterate.
     Elizabeth Tennison separated from her husband John in 1680 because she
feared for her safety. John confessed he never loved nor respected her. John
died within a few years, and in 1683 Elizabeth protested in Court that his
will cut her out completely. She is old and infirm. Nevertheless, she married
James Green about 1683. She sued for her dower rights.

                         THOMAS REED - TOBACCO GROWER
     THOMAS REED, Planter, of Charles County, Maryland
                               REED FAMILY TREE
    THOMAS REED had four daughters. Two of them married Duley brothers and two
married Cooksey brothers. Not much has been learned about THOMAS REED because
there are several in the area by the same name. It was thought his name might
be Thomas Reeder but that does not appear to be the case. The maiden name of
his wife, Elizabeth, is not known.
    More research needs to be done.
   In 1746, THOMAS REED, the father of Sarah Reed Cooksey, died and left a
will in Charles County Maryland.
      Written Dec 18, 1741; probated April 2, 1746.  Dear wife Elizabeth
      Reed to get land where he lives and at her death to go to oldest
      daughter, Elizabeth Duley, wife of James Duley. Wife to have all
      personal estate then Elizabeth Duley is to get negro boy Roger.
      The rest of the estate is to be equally divided between his other
      three daughters, viz: SARAH COOKSEY, Susanna Duley and Mary
      Cooksey. Wife Elizabeth to be executrix. wit: Robert Yates, John
      Harris and Robert Yates, Jr.  Probate was taken in presence of
      JEST. COOKSEY and John Duley who intermarried with daughters of
      the deceased.

     ? THOMAS GLOVER (d 1731) of St. Mary's County, Maryland
                              GLOVER FAMILY TREE
     When Alice Scott died on November 11, 1853 in Meade Co, Kentucky, of old
age at age 87, it stated on her death certificate that she was born ALICE
GLOVER in Charles County, Maryland, in 1766. Her father, PHILIP GLOVER, and
mother, Charity (Philpott) GLOVER both died in 1790. Charity GLOVER, named her
daughter Alice SCOTT in her will and left ten pounds for the education of her
grandson, WILLIAM SCOTT.
    Alice GLOVER married Thomas SCOTT July 9, 1782 in Wayside Christ Church,
William and Mary Parish, Wayside, Maryland, when she was 16. In the marriage
record she was called Alice Philpott either by mistake or perhaps it was her
middle name, since two of her siblings had Philpott as a middle name. In their
wills, she was the only married child of PHILIP and Charity (Philpott) GLOVER.
The two youngest, Philip and Elizabeth, were under age.
    Alice was the mother of seven children, three boys and four girls. William
was born in Maryland sometime between 1783 and 1788. Alice and Thomas Scott
moved to Granville County, North Carolina, about 1788 before moving on to what
was then Hardin County, Kentucky, about 1800.
     The GLOVER family had been in Maryland from earliest times. Benjamin
GLOVER came in 1658, Giles GLOVER in 1663, John and Elizabeth GLOVER in 1664,
Isaac GLOVER in 1665, Richard GLOVER in 1667, William and Elizabeth GLOVER
1674, and Samuel and Sarah GLOVER in 1678. Thomas GLOVER came by way of
Virginia in 1664. Giles GLOVER and his wife, Elizabeth (Lindsey), (md by 1713)
were the only ones who came to Charles County in the early days, settling on
the Avon River Plantation. Giles and Elizabeth GLOVER registered their cattle
marks in 1658. A Robert GLOVER registers his mark about the same time.
     PHILIP GLOVER's father died early in his life. His mother, Mary, soon
married widower John Philpott, the son of Charles and Elizabeth Philpott. Mary
had two children by her new husband, John Philpott, who already had children
by his first wife whose name is unknown.
     Mary _____ (widow Glover) Philpott left a will in 1766 in which she names
her daughter Sarah Warren Philpott and son Samuel Philpott. She specifies that
her son PHILIP GLOVER is to have the right of dower in the estate of deceased
husband John Philpott. Benjamin Philpott is named her executor.
     Benjamin Philpott left a will in 1787 leaving a legacy to his sister
Charity GLOVER, Philip's wife, and to nephews John Philpott GLOVER and Philip
     Charity (Philpott) GLOVER left a will dated Feb 13, 1790, proven May 9,
1790, in which she named her children: Alice [GLOVER] Scott, Mary GLOVER,
Elizabeth Philpott GLOVER, Philip GLOVER [Jr], and John Philpott GLOVER. She
also names grandson William Scott. Son John GLOVER and daughter Mary are the
executors. Witnesses: John Campbell, Edward Hobart, and Thomas Cottrell.
     Philip GLOVER was one of the signers of the Oath of Allegiance in 1778 in
Charles County, Maryland.
     Philip GLOVER was listed in the 1775-1778 census of Charles County, from
the Upper Hundred of William and Mary Parish.
Charles County, Md, Census of 1790:

           PHILIP GLOVER 2 Males over 16
                         0 Males under 16
                         2 Females
                         0 Other free
                         4 Slaves

     PHILIP GLOVER [Sr] also died in 1790. John Philpott Glover was executor
of his father's estate as well as of his mother's. In 1791, he had inventoried
his father's estate. Philip Glover and Mary Cottrell were listed as nearest of
kin.  She was probably Mary Glover and she possibly married Thomas Cottrell, a
witness for her mother's will.
     Philip GLOVER [Jr] left a will dated March 23, 1801, naming nephew Philip
GLOVER. He names his brother John Philpott GLOVER his sole executor.
    The question is, who is the father of PHILIP GLOVER [Sr]?
    Richard GLOVER died about 1750 in St. Mary's County, Maryland, without
leaving a will. His wife, Mary, administered his account. Could she be
Philip's mother who married John Philpott, a widower with several children?
    Who was Richard's father?
    Thomas GLOVER married Sarah, the widow of John Duley by whom she had four
children who were minors when John Duley died in 1725.  Thomas was probably
the son of one of the early immigrants listed above, but which one cannot be
said with any certainty.
    Thomas GLOVER left a will in St. Mary's County dated 1731 in which he
named his son Thomas and married son RICHARD whose wife was expecting. He also
names unborn child of his (Thomas') present wife, Winiford [Fowler],
indicating RICHARD was by a previous, unnamed, wife. Could she have been
Sarah, widow Duley?
   Many early colonial families, had complicated relationships due to early
deaths of one parent and subsequent remarriages. Children of previous
marriages became one family and were joined by new siblings. Parents died and
left their children to be raised by a brother or sister.
    One thing is clear: Philip Glover's mother, Mary, married John Philpott.

     EDWARD PHILPOTT I (ca 1597-1678) of Charles County, Maryland

                             PHILPOTT FAMILY TREE

     From rags to riches. EDWARD PHILPOTT I came to St. Mary's, Maryland about
1650, as an indentured servant to either Robert Brooke of de la Brooke or
William Mitchell, at age 49 or more, and ended up a large landowner. EDWARD
PHILPOTT I was a master carpenter which in 1650 terms meant architect. He was
also a wheelright, a crucial profession in the newly established colony.
     One can only speculate that Edward Philpott left England at that age for
religious reasons. Many fled during the bloody civil war that lasted from
1642-1649 ending with the beheading of King Charles II by Cromwell. The
signing of the letter to William and Mary in 1689 by his son Edward II,
rejoicing that Protestantism was secure in Maryland, supports this conjecture.
     Many early immigrants, unable to pay their own way, indentured themselves
for passage. At the end of that time, they were free to do as they liked. Many
subsequently became men of stature in the area.
     The name Philpott first appears as "Richard des Philpotts" in Kent,
England. The name meant "Little Philip" PHILIP-OT, possibly old Saxon in
origin.  John Philpot was the great Lord Mayor about 1387. He was a London
financier and lent the King money. He collected his own fleet and cleared the
channel of pirates. Had immense land holdings in Hampshire, Isle of Wight and
Kent, so his descendants mover onto those places.  Archdeacon John Philpot, of
Winchester, defied the Bishops and earned the name "the Martyr", and was
burned at the stake in 1555. (Information from Romney Philpott)
    There were many Philpott immigrants in the early days: William 1662,
Anthony 1670, Thomas 1650, Joan 1664, Robert 1664, Robert who came from the
Isle of Kent before 1640, deceased by 1650 and Thomas, his heir a minor in
1650, William 1658.  However, there is no name even close to EDWARD PHILPOTT.
  But Robert Brooke of de la Brook was Lord Proprietor of his lands in old
Charles County granted by Lord Baltimore in 1650, the year he immigrated with
his wife and 10 children. It is recorded that he brought 21 men [indentured]
servants and 7 maid servants with him at that time. William Mitchell also
brought 22 [indentured] servants into Maryland in 1650.  One of those men
might have been EDWARD PHILPOTT. To build a house for Robert Brooke's ten
children required a master carpenter.
      ITEM: St Mary's 1650: Let to Elwyn Bufkin 2 menservants (EDWARD
      PHILPOTT and Vincent Atkinson) then to Robert Brooke.

      ITEM: In 1650 EDWARD PHILPOTT, about 49, deposes he did serve Mr
      Brooke of de la Brooke full term of 3 months.

      ITEM: In 1652 EDWARD PHILPOTT was servant to William Mitchell
      working for Robert Brooke. He was a master carpenter, a

      ITEM: In 1657/8 EDWARD PHILPOTT, about 60, deposed that he was
      sold by William Mitchell to Thos. Gerrard [owner of St Clement's
      Manor] for 4 cows and their heifers.

      ITEM: EDWARD PHILPOTT was robbed by indians in 1658 in St. Mary's.

      ITEM: Mr. Brooke promised him set of tools, then backed out, but
      kept Philpott's tools. EDWARD PHILPOTT brought him to court and
      got his tools out of the box. (Vol 34 Maryland Provincial Court

     By 1657, EDWARD PHILPOTT I began to acquire land: "Parcel of Land"
(330A), "Walker's Run" (200A), "Philpott", "Court's Palace" (100A), altogether
more than 600A. Like most landowners, he became a tobacco grower. There was no
coinage in Maryland at the time and tobacco was used as a form of exchange.
     About 1658, nearly 60, EDWARD PHILPOTT I married Bridget, whose last name
is unknown. Two sons, Edward II (1660) and Charles (1667), were born of this
union. In 1660, Edward PHILPOTT I registered his mark for hogs and cattle.
EDWARD PHILPOTT I served as a coroner, a juryman, foreman of jury, and
witness. After his death in 1678, Bridget married Robert Ingolsby. By 1680,
Bridget was again a widow.
      EDWARD PHILPOTT II (1660-1718) married Susannah POSEY about 1686. They
had six children: Edward III born 1687, Susanna born 1690, JOHN born 1692,
Charles, born about 1698, Eleanor who died in 1724, and Mary born ca 1702.
     In 1689, EDWARD PHILPOTT II was one of 70 signers of a letter to their
Majesties William and Mary, rejoicing over the establishment of Protestantism
in MAryland. He served on the grand jury and was concerned about the welfare
of the public.
      EDWARD PHILPOTT II also was busy acquiring more land. "Philpott's
Chance", "Timber Neck", were added making an estate of about 1,000A. His wife,
Susannah, died and in 1709, EDWARD PHILPOTT married Eleanor Hawkins. Eleanor
had married the Rev. George Tubman in 1698, had two children by him and then
discovered he already had a wife in England. In 1705, she married William
Smallwood, who had three small children, but he died very soon after. Eleanor
and EDWARD II had no children.  His estate inventory was extensive, containing
even a violin.
     Edward Philpott III had two sons, John and Edward. Neither had children.
JOHN PHILPOTT (1692-1746) married ANN COTTRELL and had eight or nine children.
JOHN PHILPOTT died while on a business trip to Princess Ann County, Virginia,
on 2 February 1746. CHARITY PHILPOTT, born about 1740, was the daughter of
JOHN PHILPOTT and Ann. CHARITY married PHILIP GLOVER before 1766 when their
oldest daughter ALICE GLOVER was born.
     Benjamin Philpott, oldest brother of Charity, is perhaps the most
prominent member of the family.  He was frequently called on to attend to
family matters, handling the estates of brothers Samuel and Johannades, and
Charles, and Mary (widow Glover) Philpott, mother of PHILIP GLOVER.
     The 1765 Stamp Act angered colonists. They decided not to import anything
from England subject to this tax. When tea was discovered in a shipment from
England in 1774, irate citizens decided to blockade all English goods.
     In 1774 Benjamin Philpott was on the committee of 100 best known citizens
of the county elected to vote for representatives to the Continental Congress.
In 1776, citizens armed themselves. Benjamin Philpott was made a Captain in
the Militia, serving six years during the Revolutionary War period. He
received 1000 acres of land for his service which he assigned to his nephews
John and Benjamin Philpott, Philip and John Philpott Glover. Benjamin married
late in life but died a year later. 1000 acres was left to them in his will.
     Nephews Philip (d unmd in 1801) and John Philpott Glover were the
children of Benjamin's sister, Charity. Nephews John and Benjamin Philpott are
a little harder to identify. They had to be sons of one of Benjamin's four
brothers: either Samuel, Johannades, Charles or Francis. Johannades died
unmarried. Samuel may have too. Francis' children are not named John or
Benjamin. This leaves Charles as their father. He may have died in Martin
County, North Carolina.
     At the probate of Benjamin PHILPOTT'S will, John Philpott, "heir at law,"
was a resident of the State of Carolina (North or South?) and was not present.
This means John was the oldest son of one of Benjamin's brothers, probably
Charles. Judging from the names of the Philpotts and Glovers in Meade and
Hardin Counties, Kentucky,-- John F., Samuel A. and Benjamin R. Philpott, and
Jogn and Charles Glover - his land grants must have been there.

                          FRANCIS POSEY - THE HUGUENOT


     FRANCIS POSEY, Planter, of Charles County, Maryland
     JOHN VILLAINE/BELAINE, Planter, of Charles County, Maryland

                           POSEY-BELAINE FAMILY TREE
     FRANCIS POSEY was born Francois Poschet in Cambrai, France, the son of
Martin Poschet and Anne de Colnet. They were Huguenots who fled France for
England with sons Martin Poschet and FRANCIS POSCHET, both of whom immigrated
to the American colonies.
     In the early 1400's in Cambrai, France, the Baron of Raxem was EUSTACHE
JOSEPH POCHET, a knight. He married  MATHILDE de FOELEIMBERT. Francis' line
can be traced from there. Francis is the seventh generation from Eustache
Pochet.  (See We Are Our Ancestors, by June Stubbs, 1983, in appendix)
     FRANCIS POSEY came from London with William Farrar, Sr., who was
representative of St. Clement's Hundred in the Maryland Assembly 1641-1649,
and a Burgess in 1650.
     FRANCIS POSEY was 'transported' by William Farrar in 1636 and landed in
Henrico County, Virginia. By 1640 FRANCIS POSEY had moved to Maryland. The
payment of another person's passage entitled one to claim land. Thus:
      "Francis Posey demandeth 100 acres of land for transporting

     Francis Posey was very closely associated with John Belaine in land
dealings in the early years. It is believed that John Villaine-Belaine was
also a Huguenot.
     Soon after he arrived, Francis Posey married ELIZABETH _____, who was a
transported servant.  He asked for 50 acres of land, saying "hee bought of Mr
ffenwick whose servant shee was being for her transportation into this
Province about 7 yeares since..."  Speculation as to her family name can be
found We Are Our Ancestors in the Posey section.
     Francis POSEY served for a number of years as deputy sheriff. He was also
a member of the General Assembly as early as 1641.
     Francis Posey was frequently in court for a variety of minor suits which
was not uncommon in the early days. A lot of interesting data on FRANCIS POSEY
can be found in the appendix under Meet Your Ancestors, written by Noland
Bowling in 1983.
     FRANCIS POSEY died suddenly in the early part of 1658 and left no will.
He had three children, Benjamin, 10, Anne, 8, and JOHN, 6. The young widow was
left with three small children to raise. JOHN BELAINE, her husband's business
partner, was a widower with two small children, LEES AMALIE and Susanna. They
soon married. Five and a half years later JOHN BELAINE died, leaving two more
children by Elizabeth: Nicholas and Grace. The frontier was dangerous and life
was hard. After JOHN BELAINE's death, Elizabeth married a third time, to
Alexander Smith.
     JOHN VILLAINE-BELAINE was closely associated with FRANCIS POSEY. For
example, he and Francis Posey often bought land together and the two families
were closely intertwined. He transported himself to Maryland in 1646, for
which he asked the standard 100 acres. His name is spelled many different
ways.  In one and the same document he was called both John Villaine and John
     JOHN BELAINE left a will dated 23 May 1663, proven Nov, 3, 1663.
      "To wife (unnamed) and her child (unnamed) one-half of estate.
      Testator's child (unnamed) residue of estate, real and personal.
      Overseers: William Marshall and Peter Carr.  Witnesses: John
      Courts, Alex Smith [who later married John Belaine's widow!],
      Meverell Tully, Thos Matthews"

     FRANCIS' younger son, JOHN POSEY, born in 1652, was of age in 1672 to
serve on the jury. On 28 May 1673, he bought "St Johns" from Thomas Allanson.
In 1673 JOHN POSEY's mark was recorded as "000". In 1674, he entered his brand
as "3".
     JOHN POSEY married his step-sister, LEES AMALIE BELAINE, and after her
early death, he married her sister, his step-sister, Susanna Belaine. It is
not definitely known which of the girls was the mother of Susanna who married
Edward Philpott. Most researchers think Lees Amalie was her mother but it
makes little difference since the ancestry would be the same.
     Benjamin Posey, John's older brother, married the widow of his half-
brother, Nicholas Belaine.  More confusing is the fact that the Belaine
children took the name Posey when their mother remarried.

JAMES COTTRELL (ca 1665 - d 1722)
     The name Cottrell has been spelled Cattle, Cotterall, Cotterell, Cottrill
and Cottrall in early Maryland records. Walter Cotterell is listed as an
immigrant to Maryland in 1640. He was the overseer for Thomas Peteate in St.
Mary's County 1650-57. George Cotterell-Cottirill was listed in 1661. A James

ANN wife of JOHN PHILPOTT. James was only 25 when he died.

THOMAS BURFORD (ca 1650 in England-)
     THOMAS BURFORD immigrated to Charles County. Maryland, in 1680 with his
son Thomas Jr. and daughter ELIZABETH.  Thomas Burford was listed as a
landowner in Charles County in 1683 from whom land was to be purchased for
establishing two towns. ELIZABETH BURFORD mentions her brother Thomas and
sister Jane wife of Richard Dodd.

                          JOHN MOORE - THE VIRGINIAN


     ANTHONY AMENT - Revolutionary soldier from Pennsylvania & Virginia

     JOHN MOORE - the Virginian

                            AMENT/MOORE FAMILY TREE

     At age 75, ANTHONY AMENT applied for a Revolutionary War pension on
October 24, 1832. He deposed that he had volunteered under Capt. Clots in
Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. He said he was born in York County,
Pennsylvania in 1757. He made his own record from his parents when he moved to
Shenandoah County, Virginia. ANTHONY AMENT met and married MARY MOORE,
daughter of JOHN MOORE in Virginia. They moved to Hardin County, Kentucky, in
     At the same time, Philip Ament, 78, probably Anthony's brother, deposed
that he served in the Revolutionary War under the command of Colonel Hand in
the First Rifle Regiment.  He also lived in Hardin County, Kentucky.
     CATHERINE AMENT, daughter of ANTHONY AMENT and MARY (MOORE), was born in
Virginia. She married WILLIAM SCOTT, son of THOMAS SCOTT and ALICE (GLOVER)
married in Hardin County, Kentucky, May 21, 1814.
1815. Eighteen years later, in 1833, their second child, William S. Scott,
 was born.
     On Oct 17, 1842, WILLIAM SCOTT married Rachel Ament, probably Catherine's
sister. In 1854, William S. Scott, younger son of WILLIAM SCOTT and CATHERINE
AMENT married his cousin, Sarah Jane Ament, daughter of Anthony Ament Jr, son
of his uncle John.
     In 1818, WILLIAM SCOTT's brother, Samuel Dixon Scott, married CATHERINE's
sister, Polly Ament. Polly died leaving one daughter, Katherine.
     Henry Ament died childless in 1860. In his will dated March 10, 1860, he
      to my sister Rachel Scott, my niece Catherine [Scott] Hart; My
      brother John Ament's children: Kath Dodson of Ind, Elizabeth
      Miller, Sarah Tabor, John Ament, John's son Anthony's children:

      Lampton.  May 4, 1860 N.P. Williams, exec.
        Wit: James Spillman. Geo. Neff   May 9, 1860.

     He leaves nothing to the children of his sister, Catherine Scott, perhaps
feeling by leaving something to Rachel Scott they have been remembered.
                                  JOHN MOORE
     JOHN MOORE was the father of MARY MOORE who married ANTHONY AMENT in 1781
in Shenendoah County, Virginia.  No research has been done on this line.
ANTHONY AMENT and MARY lived in Virginia from 1781 until 1814, thirty-three
years, before deciding to move to Kentucky.

                       JONATHAN HARNED/ARNETT - PIONEER
                              HARNED FAMILY TREE
     Jonathan Harned, Sr., was almost certainly of the New Jersey-Long Island
line of Harneds. Of this line there were known to be three brothers who were
born about 1690-1700, namely, Nathaniel, Jonathan and Edward Harned.
Nathaniel's line is pretty well accounted for.  Jonathan Harned died in 1776
without issue.  Edward Harned disappears in New Jersey after 1730. He was
possibly the father of Jonathan.
     Jonathan Harned, Sr. appears in early deeds in Nelson and HArdin
counties. In early deeds he signs with Caterina or Cate, his wife. One
tradition says his wife was a Rebecca Arvacost (or Arbogast), On the other
hand his son Jonathan Harned married Caty Arvacost, and some claim that the
younger Jonathan and his wife were cousins. Or did Jonathan, Sr. marry
Caterina, not Rebecca, Arvacost?  Tradition says his wife was German.
     Jonathan Harnet served in Capt. Gaddis' company of Virginia militia at
Fort Liberty from September 9, 1776 to January 1777. Raised from Frederick
County, Virginia. (W&MQ Vol III p. 321)
     Jonathan Harned owned land in 1781 on the water's of Froman's Creek on
the White Oak Run in Frederick and Hampton Counties, Virginia.
           At a court held in Jefferson County, Kentucky, Dec. 3, 1781,
      it was ordered that surveys of 400 acres each be made for Jonathan
      Harnett, Henry Keith, John Keith, William Arnett and about 150
      others. Surveys were ordered in March and June 1781, to Meredith
      Helms and John Vertrees. In March 1782, to Eneas Harnett.
