2401 The first of these sons was William Fitz-Alan, 1105-1160 (Fitz, meaning "son of", for there were no surnames used at this time). He was ancestor of the Earls of Arundel (England), which title, in 1546, passed through an heiress, to the Duke of Norfolk. Fitz-Alan, William (I9602)
 
2402 The following note is an attempt to clarify the apparent relationships between 4 persons named Isabelle (also Isabel or Isabella). This note is offered as part of the record for Isabelle #2 below:

Will of Isabelle Johns (Isa. #1) 1793, gives a daughter, Isabelle Cowan (Isa. #2). As Isabelle Johns (Isa. #1) is the grandmother of Isaac Cowan Lamb's daughters (Isabel (Isa. #3) & Eleanor Lamb, given in her will), this Isabelle Cowan (Isa. #2) is most likely her daughter by a former marriage (Cowan). Isabelle Cowan's (Isa. #2) will 1836 also shows an Isabelle Cowan, Jr. (Isa. #4).

In the 1836 will (Isa. #2), listed are: Isabelle Cowan, Jr., Robert C. Ormsby; Thomas Cowan's children; John B. Cowan; Samuel C. Cowan; Thomas Cowan; Harris Cowan; Maria Rivenbark; Hugh Cowan. (Exr. Friend, John Moore, Sr.) (relationships not given in the will)

Gen 1 Thomas Lamb --- Isabelle Johns --- Mr. _____ Cowan
Gen 2 Isaac Cowan Lamb Isabelle Cowan
Gen 3 Isabel (or Isabella) Lamb Isabelle Cowan
Gen 3 Eleanor Lamb 
Cowan, Isabelle (I250)
 
2403 The funeral was delayed till John could come from Connecticut. It was to be so ordered - as said the summons, dated "your father's parlor," despatched by fleet-footed Indian messenger, the ever troublesome Bellingham its first signer-" that it may appeare of what precious account & desert he hath ben, & how blessed his memoriall." It took place April 3, being conducted " with great solemnity and honour," both civic and military. The place of interment was what is now called the King's Chapel Burying-ground, - the spot to be seen at this day. WINTHROP, John Sr. (I2677)

2405 The George W. Bennett born 19 Sep 1828 in OH & died 29 Jun 1891 in KS, which some represent as father of Temperence Almira Bennett, does not seem likely for several reasons:

1. George has no relatives mentioned as living in Kansas, where he might have gone to live with or near. And Kansas is a very long distance from Ohio.

2. There is no war being fought in which he would suddenly go to Kansas.

3. All census records (1860, 1870, 1880 & 1900) show him in Ohio, and indicate an age that would make his birth year approximately 1830, not 1828.
  • 1860: George is 30, Susan is 31
  • 1870: George is 40, Susan is 41
  • 1880: George is 50, Susan is 51
  • 1900: George is 70, Susan is 71

The unusually consistent ages along with consistency of children indicates these are all the same set of parents.

4. The George W. Bennett shown in censuses as the father of Temperence A. or Almira show him with Susan/Susanna as his wife, not Anna M. (as given on the gravestone of the George W. Bennett with 1828 & 1891 dates), indicating with the other data that the 1828-1891 George is not the same George as given in the census data with a birth year of 1830.

5. In 1880, George is shown in Jackson County, Ohio with wife Susan and 7 of their children (all reasons he would be likely to remain in that area unless the family moved together)...including son, Alonzo, born 1877.

6. In 1900, George is still living and again shown in Jackson County, Ohio at age 70 with wife Susan at age 71. They are shown with Alonzo, who is given as their grandson, and yet his birth year is 1877. Although age-wise, it would be possible for George's oldest child to have a son Alonzo aged 23 years, the census records for Thomas Bennett do not show such a son. Most likely, Alonzo is George's son. Lelia M. Jinks born 1884, also shown, may indeed be a granddaughter as indicated, but I've found no other record of her.

7. All George Bennetts (middle initial W or none) actually born IN Ohio from 1828-1832, in the 1850 census, whether living in Ohio at the time of the census or not:
  • born 1828: Living in Brush Creek, Muskingum Co, OH with Joshua & Amelia Bennett
  • born 1829: Living in Brunswick, Medina Co, OH with Esther & William Bennett
  • born 1829: Living in Somers, Preble Co, OH with Margaret Bennett family
  • born 1830: Living in Illinois with Baker family
  • born 1831: Living in Indiana with John & Susan Bennett
  • born 1831: Living in Brush Creek Highland Co, OH with Joshua & Sarah Bennett

Map showing relative distances between these states: Ohio, Indiana, Illinois & Kansas

Note: The red balloon indicates Lyon Co, KS, where a George W. Bennett is buried, but doesn't show in the 1850 census.

8. The Kansas censuses (1885 & 1905) cited to indicate George was married to Elizabeth & "E.P.". The gravestone of the George W. Bennett shown gives his birth and death years as 1828-1891 and a spouse of Anna M. In the 1885 census, he is 55 and Elizabeth is 45 and has different children born as early as 1859. In the 1905 census (14 years after the gravestone says he was dead), he is 70 and E.P. is 60, still a 10 year difference, and yet 20 years after the 1885 census should show them as 5 years older than this.

There is no basis for concluding that George W. Bennett, father of Temperence Almira Bennett (wife of George W. Brooks) is the same George as cited in the Kansas censuses or on the gravestone shown. 
Bennett, George W. (I14554)
 
2406 The Litherland name took on many spellings in the Kentucky, Indiana,
Illinois area: Leatherland, Letherland, Litherland, Leitherland,
Latherland. Generally, the individuals were not literate neither reading
or writing. The resulting spelling in tax records or census reflected how
the the recorder heard
the name being pronounced. By the late 1800`S the spelling of
"Litherland"seems to have become the
accepted form for this particular family.

2407 The name of Robert W. McClellan's wife is unclear on the grave monument image. Mary Barr was one interpretation given, but needs to be ascertained by direct viewing of the actual gravestone. Barr, Mary (I5542)
 
2408 The name Warrene originates from the river Varenne near Dieppe. William came from France with the invasion of 1066 and was created the Earl of Surry with castles at Lewes, Castle Acre and Reigate. He was granted the Wakefiled estates by his father-in-law. William de Warenne, 2nd Earl of Surrey (died 1138), was the son of William de Warenne, 1st Earl of Surrey and his first wife Gundred. He is more often referred to as Earl Warenne or Earl of Warenne than as Earl of Surrey.

William de Warren II, 2nd Earl of Warren and 2nd Earl of Surrey, joined Robert de Belesme, Earl of Arundel and Shrewsbury, in favor of Robert Curthose, against King Henry I., and in consequence forfeited his English earldom and estates; but those were subsequently restored to him, and he was ever afterwards a good and faithful subject to King Henry. He married Isabel Vermandois, Countess of Leicester, daughter of Hugh the Great, Earl of Vermandois, and Alice, his wife, daughter of Hubert, 4th Count de Vermandois, son of Henry, 3rd Count de Vermandois, by his wife, Edgina, daughter of Edward the Elder, King of England, son of Alfred the Great, King of England. Isabel was also the widow of Robert, Earl of Mellent, and granddaughter of King Henry I of France.

In January 1091, William assisted Hugh of Grantmesnil (d.1094) in his defense of Courcy against the forces of Robert de Belleme and Duke Robert. Sometime around 1093 he tried to marry Matilda (or Edith), daughter of king Malcolm III of Scotland. She instead married Henry I of England, and this may be the cause of William's great dislike of Henry I, which was to be his apparent motivator in the following years. He accompanied Robert Curthose (Duke Robert) in his 1101 invasion of England, and afterwards lost his English lands and titles and was exiled to Normandy. There he complained to Curthose that he expended great effort on the duke's behalf and had in return lost most of his possessions. Curthose's return to England in 1103 was apparently made to convince his brother to restore William's earldom. This was successful, though Curthose had to give up all he had received after the 1101 invasion, and subsequently William was loyal to Henry. To further insure William's loyalty Henry considered marrying him to one of his many illegitimate daughters. He was however dissuaded by Archbishop Anselm of Canterbury, for any of the daughters would have been within the prohibited degrees of consanguinity. The precise nature of the consanguinous relationship Anselm had in mind has been much debated, but it is most likely he was referring to common descent from the father of duchess Gunnor.
William was one of the commanders on Henry's side (against Robert Curthose) at the Battle of Tinchebray in 1106. Afterwards, with his loyalty thus proven, he became more prominent in Henry's court. In 1110, Curthose's son William Clito escaped along with Helias of Saint-Saens, and afterwards Warenne received the forfeited Saint-Saens lands, which were very near his own in upper Normandy. By this maneuver king Henry further assured his loyalty, for the successful return of Clito would mean at the very least Warenne's loss of this new territory.
He fought at the Battle of Bremule in 1119, and was at Henry's deathbed in 1135. William's death is recorded as 11-May-1138 in the register of Lewes priory and he was buried with his father at the chapter-house there.

2410 The online records where Mary is listed as child of Edmund Chandler and Jane Gitton, also give her as married to Hezekiah Bradford. Hezekiah Bradford did marry a Mary Chandler; however, they were married in 1714, and had a child together...at which marriage year, this Mary would be 98 years old. Mary's birth year appears correct, judging by the birth years of her siblings. CHANDLER, Mary (I5250)

History of Summers County, West Virginia
James H. Miller, published 1907

Kaylor and Hix [Hicks]
Pages 639-641
Footnotes added by Carol Benjamin (1993)

Susan and Love Kaylor were twin daughters of Michael Kaylor , and were born August 20, 1781. Love Kaylor4 married Joh n Hix, and was the grandmother of Robert Hix, the present o verseer of the poor of Green Sulphur District.

John Hix, the original Hix ancestor of the honorable famil y of that name, was a native of Monroe County, Virginia, no w West Virginia, and settled at Green Sulphur Springs. H e was killed by a bull in 1807, near the residence of the H on. M. Gwinn. John Hix, Jr. son the John Hix above referre d to, was born August 31, 1778, in Cumberland County, Virgi nia, and died on the farm on which Robert Hix now resides , near New Richmond. William and Andrew Hix were twin son s of John Hix, Jr. born July 27, 1823, Andrew died in 1900 . He was a brave Confederate soldier under McCausland. Wi lliam is still living, and is the father of Robert Hix. Wil liam Hix is one, if not the oldest, of the citizens now liv ing in Green Sulphur District.

He has a wonderful recollection of things which are apparen tly ancient to the younger generation. He remembers disti nctly seeing Indians, in his boyhood days from his father' s farm, on their way to Washington City. He was then abou t fourteen years old and it was about the year 1837. The t hree brothers, John, William and Andrew, each lived to be v ery old men. They were Democrats in politics before the war , and continued their affiliations with that party during t heir entire lives. William resides with his only son, Rober t, who is one of the leading citizens of Green Sulphur Dist rict, one of the leaders of the Democratic party, member o f the Executive Committee, and a very loyal citizen, but no t an office-seeker, never having been a candidate for any o ffice, although he permitted the use of his name as deput y for Mr. O. T. Kesler, in his last race for the shrievalty.

In religious affairs, Mr. Hix and all of the family are ide ntified with the Missionary Baptist Church6. Robert marrie d a Miss Lusher, daughter of Thomas D. Lusher. John Hix, J r., left the following family: Elizabeth, born October 13 , 1804; Catherine, born November 27, 1806; Michael8, born J anuary 4, 1809; John, born December 5, 1811; Adeline, bor n July 18, 1816, who married John Duncan who lives at Gree n Sulphur Springs. William and Andrew were twins, born Jul y 27, 1823. William Hix married Jane Kincaid, September 17 , 1845, and the following children were born to them; Mart ha, born July 7, 1850, now deceased; Robert, born January 1 , 1852; Susan, who married Mr. Edwards, born October 3, 185 3; John L., born November 20, 1856, now deceased; Virginia , who married Robert Gwinn, born March 3, 1861; Minerva Ell a married Charles Withrow, and was born August 3, 1853. Th e wife of William Hix died9 December 29, 1828. Michael Hix , living on the Hump Mountain, a son of Michael, who died d uring the war10, is also of this family. He was a brave Co nfederate soldier and a good citizen, as was also Andrew Hi x, his uncle, who was severely wounded during the war11.

One of his daughters married George W. Ayres12. John Hix l ived on the Swell Mountain at a very high point, where, a t one time, the lightning struck his barn, killing one so n and severely wounding another, Marion, who now lives nea r Hinton. John Hix was a president of the Board of Educati on of Green Sulphur District, as was also his son, James M . Hix, who now lives on Lick Creek-another of the soldier s of the Confederacy.

No one by the name of Hix was ever known to vote any ticke t except the Democratic. Michael Hix, Sr., married Jeria h Duncan13,who lived to be a very old lady, near Lick Creek , adjoining the S. F. Taylor place.

West Virginia was Good

One of the old men in the community we boys heartily despis ed. He had hired a substitute to go the war for him. The m an he hired to take his place in the Civil War draft was An dy Hicks, who lived just above us on Hicks' Branch, a tribu tary to Laurel Creek. Mr. Hicks was a little above the dra ft age in 1861, so that he might have stayed out of militar y service. But for a horse and saddle and $100 cash, he ro de off on the horse and joined a Confederate cavalry unit . He got home three years later, unharmed. I served in th e same outfit in World War I with a grandson of this old ma n Hicks, named Benny Bryant.

As a neighbor boy I attended the funeral of Mr. Hicks. Bu t the funeral was not conducted at the time of burial. Th e old man was buried on a bad winter day. As was done no t infrequently in those days, his funeral was delayed unti l about the next August. Then to me at least, it seemed qu iet a gala occasion when the funeral was "preached" out i n the big orchard of the Hicks farm when apples were just g etting at their best. Quite a crowd attended from nearby fa rms. They sat on chairs, boxes, logs and rocks. The preac her, Rev. Rhodes, was a venerable man who had the habit o f sucking at his little mustache about every tenth word. H e wore a long swallow-tailed coat that was faded to a dim b rown that might have been black twenty years earlier. He s hed tears as he talked, although I saw nobody else crying.

In our community it was an accepted practice for a group o f neighbors and friends to sit up all night with a dead bod y prior to burial. There was no such thing as an undertake r or mortuary. Neighbors came in after a death, and "lai d out" the body--prepared it for the coffin. Nearly ever y family, as did ours, has keepsake coins that had been lai d over the eyelids of a departed member to hold them shut u ntil rigor mortis made weights no longer necessary. More o ften than not the coffin was made by someone in the communi ty, of whatever boards might be at hand.

People gathered for the wake at nightfall. Many brought fo od. The wake proper began with the reading of a passage fr om the Bible, than a prayer might run out to some length . After that, the singing of hymns was begun by someone as king to hear a certain song. Hymn after hymn was sung, wit h short pauses between. Perhaps every two hours or so a m an would read from the Bible and pray again.

This went on all night. People would pause to eat, drink c offee and visit in subdued voices. Nearly everybody woul d get hoarse. Some licked salt to overcome hoarseness . A few would go home after midnight. Replacements arrived , but in limited numbers. By morning perhaps only half a d ozen of the most faithful would be there to sing the last s ong and read the last verse of Scripture.

Even as late as 1920, I was present all night at the wake o f a coal miner who had been electrocuted accidentally in th e mine. I was there more or less as the informal represent ative of the coal company in whose store I worked and in wh ose mine this man had been killed. I found myself forced t o take charge, with few helpers. No more than a dozen pers ons showed up, and this number diminished to three or fou r by daylight. Not all of those present could sing. It wa s a squalid little company house, three rooms and an outsid e toilet. Each end of the cheap gray coffin rested on a ch air with the back of the chair turned away. Nobody brough t even a pie for the midnight snack. I think I was the onl y one present who knew even the rudiments of procedure on s uch an occasion. That night remains a stark memory with me.

In contrast, the funeral of the aged Andy Hicks in mid-summ er of 1899, after he had been buried six or eight months, l ingers with me as a rather pleasant something to have exper ienced. A good crowd, lots of kids there, an orchard wit h ripe apples and in me, six years old, no sense of loss o f an old man who when young had gone to war in the place o f a shirker, at a price of $100. a horse and saddle.

Our interest often centered on the Hicks' farm. Ann Hicks , daughter of the veteran Andy Hicks, had married Ben Bryan t, an individual of greater intelligence and sophisticatio n than the common run of men thereabouts,. He was a conduct or on the C&O Railroad. He came home only occasionally fo r a brief stay with his wife and five children. About the y ear 1900 he brought in carpenters, stonemasons and painter s for the building of what in that community amounted t o a magnificent framed house with two stone chimneys.

The stonemasons were four Negro men from Alderson. On Laur el Creek black people seldom ever were seen, but at Lewisbu rg and Alderson, neither more that thirty miles away, abou t a third of the people were black, having no place to liv e on the Hicks farm, the four Negro masons rented our smok e house for the summer, with some arrangements for their bu ilding a chimney for my father after they had finished at t he Bryant home. Dad was building a new house*, not much sm aller that the new Bryant house, but he was doing most of t he carpenter work himself, even to making the roof shingles . He had to build by stages, as he could afford nails an d boards. And when he could take time from cropping and cl earing land.

*This house accidentally burned after we'd been gone from i t twenty years.

2413 The second son was Walter Fitz-Alan (d. 1177). He went to Scotland in the service [as a Knight] of King David I, and had large possessions conferred on him in Renfrewshire. Under the reign of Eadgar, King of Scotland (1097-1107), the Croun authority only extended south of the Forth of Clyde. The western islands and extreme north were possessed by the Norwegions. Eadgar was son of King Malcolm Canmore (reigned 1058-1093), and St. Margaret, sister of Eadgar Aetheling, who was sole representative of the Saxon Ruler of England after the death of King Harold and his brothers, at the battle of Hastings in 1066.

Scotland and England, then at peace, and during this and the later reigns of Alexander I (1107-1124) and David I (1124-1153) many Norman Nobles entered the Scottish service in the wars against the Norwegians being rewarded by large grants of the captured lands.

David I had been educated in England under the Norman teachers, and brought Normans and Norman customs with him to Scotland, amongst whom was Walter Fitz-Alan. He was created Dapifer (Steward or Seneschal) of the Royal Household, which title became hereditary in the family. He founded the Monastery of Paisley in 1160, and he and De Morville were witness to a charter of David I, to the Abbey o Melrose.

2414 The Strickland family lovingly referred to their brother who passed away in infancy, as Abel. It has not been confirmed that he was ever officially named on a birth certificate. Strickland, Abel (I2104)
 
2415 The third son was Simon Fitz-Alan (8), ancestor of the Boyds. The fourth son was unknown. The fifth son was Adam Fitz-Alan, mentioned in a charter, given by David I in 1139. (8) Simon Fitz-Alan, (son of Alan Fitz-Flaald) followed his brother, Walter, into Scotland in the service of King David I. Simon witnessed Walter's Foundation Charter to the Monastery of Paisley in 1160, in which he is designated as, Frater Walterii, Filii Alan, Dapiferi, according to Sir James Balfour Paul's, "Scottish Peerage" (Vol. V, pp 136-7). This charter was executed, not at Paisley, but at Fotheringay. He was living about 1200...

Simon was an ancestor of Robert the Bruce.

Their Aegender notes: Aug 1999

Circumstantial evidence points to John Agner, Jr. and his wife Barbara being the parents of our Archibald Egnor!

Original findings concerning John Jr. are being re-examined. We now believe that the Johns in Rockbridge were confused and that John Jr. did go to Monroe County about 1823. Based on this and other circumstantial evidence, we are assuming that John Jr. is the father of Archibald and Elizabeth Egnor.

==========
Doug Couch notes 2008: Also given as "? Egnor" in One Family Tree family records. Gould family records show father of Archibald as Egnor with wife Mary. Apparently, there are serious errors with this lineage. Where shown as John Agner, wife Barbara, daughter Mary is born when he is 11, and dies when he is 98, an unlikely but not impossible relationship. The above comment from the Aegender family records-notes, about the "Johns in Rockbridge" being confused, is unclear. To keep children groups, and people given as spouses organized, Barbara is shown with her children, and Mary (Polly?) is shown with hers. The claim that John Agner (Jr.) and Barbara are the parents of Archibald does not agree with the family linkage given in the same database where the comment was entered. Therefore, it is here "assumed" that there were two spouses, and that Mary and/or Polly is the mother of Archibald...until better documentation can be found.

2427 This ancestral lineage of Robert the Bruce 1274-1329 is incorrect. His father was Robert de Brus, 6th Lord of Annandale, preseded by Robert 5th, Robert 4th, etc. Lineage people need to be reviewed, detached or deleted, and correct lineage linked. Family F26998

2432 This is the paragraph immediately following the family tree image in "The Corwin Genealogy."
=======================================
Now, this "tree," without a word of explanation more than the names arranged as above, makes Thomas Curwin, the Quaker, Matthias Corwin, of Long Island, and George Curwin, of Salem, three original immigrants, though at different times, to be brothers, and the sons of a John Curwin, of England., Thomas and George may have been brothers, but the remarks already made, and the general tenor of the Introduction, will apparently quite forbid the placing of Matthias here. Probably this arrangement by Rev. George Curwin was a supposition, upon which he was beginning to work out a Curwin Genealogy ; but his death soon after, (1717.) prevented him from either verifying or disproving the same. It seems impossible to allow such a record to overturn all the testimony which the reader will find respecting another origin of Matthias Corwin. We hope, however, that the truth may be elucidated. The writer would simply observe that the family of Matthias Corwin, on Long Island, have never possessed (so far as his knowledge extends) the Curwen Arms, which the family of George, both in the East and in the West, have cherished; that the early generations of these families are not known to have ever visited or even corresponded with each other. The name of Matthias might have become known to Rev. George, from the neighboring Ipswich records where it yet remains. Rev. George was but two years old when his grandfather died. Matthias moved from Ipswich to Long Island about the time of the birth of the first George's children, 1640 ; while Thomas doee not, as far as known, appear in this country till forty or fifty years after the arrivals of George and Matthias.

2442 Thomas Couch III

Thomas Couch, of Fairfield, removed to Redding prior to the Revolution, and settled on
Umpawaug Hill. He married, April 2d, 1772, Sarah, daughter of Jonathan Nash, of Fairfield.
Their children were: Sarah, born August 9th, 1773, died young; Thomas, born September
23d, 1774; Jonathan, born February 13th, 1777, who was the father of Major-General Couch,
distinguished in the War of the Rebellion; Sarah, born September 18th, 1779; Nathan, born
September 25th, 1781; Esther, born December 14th, 1783; Moses, born October 2d, 1786;
Edward, born March 7th, 1789; Hezekiah, born March 14th, 1791; Mary, born April 21st,
1793; John, born July 28th, 1795. Mr. Thomas Couch died in Redding in 1817.

At the outbreak of the Revolution Thomas Couch enlisted in the patriot army, and was one of
the band of heroes who were present with Montgomery at the siege of Quebec. He left his
wife with their young children in Fairfield. When Tryon moved on that town, Mrs. Couch had
what furniture and grain she could gather put into an ox cart drawn by two yoke of oxen, and
started for Redding, where she owned land in her own right. She followed on horseback,
carrying her two children in her arms. At the close of the war, Thomas joined his wife in
Redding, where they continued to reside until death.

2443 Thomas Drummond, 1st of Drummonderinoch was born about 1453 in Perthshire, Scotland as the third son of Malcolm DRUMMOND, Of Stobhall And Cargill and Marion MORAY (MURRAY), Of Tullibardine. Thomas was present at the Massacre at Monzievaird Kirk. He rescued one of his Murray cousins from the burning church and saved that Murray's life. The Drummond family were not pleased with Thomas' compassion and ran him out of Scotland. He fled to Ireland where he lived for many years until the Murray's of Tullibardine gained the Earldom of Atholl from the Drummonds and with it control of most of western Perthshire. The Murrays were grateful for Thomas Drummond's earlier compassion and invited him to return to Perthshire from Ireland. They gave him property near Crieff which became known as Drummonderinoch, or Drummond of Ireland. Thomas Drummond married about 1510 to a Daughter of SCOTT Of Monzie. She was born about 1490 in Scotland. Family F26909
