Kelly, Was looking through your Vickers roots and came across the marriages. I found my great, great, great grandparents wedding. They were John Vickers and Nancy Briscoe 07/24/1805 Columbia Georgia. I have lots of family roots from their but none from before that time. Do you know who his father was or any of their children. One son was Joseph William Vickers born Nov. 17,1820 in Columbia Co. Georgia. He married Parnelia Cundiff Flournoy and moved to Pike Co. Alabama. If you can add anything to this I would apprecite it. Carolyn Vickers Evans

**********

Kelly, Just got your e-mail and started doing some more digging. Thanks so much for the info. you sent. This has to be the same John R. My John Ray was Sr. Also checking the papers in the John R. Vickers file stating P.67, Feb. 22, 1842, that said Joseph W. was now full age. My Joseph William was born Nov.17, 1820, which would make him 22. Also family tales say there was an "old Joe Vickers" store but we thought it was in Alabama. Also legend has it Joe had 5 brothers that fought in the civil war. Joe and only 3 others came back after the war. Joe was a carpenter and builder. He built the old wharf at Pensicola, Florida with slaves before the war. Some of the pilings were still standing in 1920. He boiled these pine pilings in pine rosin. All operations were moved with oxen. He was away from home long periods at a time. Carolyn Vickers Evans

Since Walton County's very beginning, the Briscoe family has been closely identified with her history. Research here and abroad by Dr. DeWitt Briscoe of Monroe revealed an interesting lineage, including an ancestor who went to England with William the Conqueror. From this progenitor, according to Dr. Briscoe, the line flows through (1) Robert Brisko of Brisko in the County of     Cumberland, England; (2) Allan; (3) Gordon; (4) Robert; (5) Isold of  Crofton Manor, who married Margaret Crofton, daughter of Sir John Crofton; (6) Christopher of Crofton Manor; (7) Robert of Crofton, who married Isabel Dikes, daughter of William Dikes of Warthall, Cumberland; (8) Robert of Crofton, who married Katherine Skelton, daughter of Clement Skelton of Pettrell  Wray; (9) John; (10) Richard, who married Elizabeth Leigh, daughter of John Leigh of Erisvelington; (11) Leonard. (12) Dr. John Briscoe (b. 1590), was married in England  to Elizabeth DuBois of the Hugenot
family of Count de Roussey Marquis DuBois, whose descendants had fled to England to escape religious persecution. This John Briscoe accepted the invitation of Cecilius Calvert, second Lord Baltimore, to come to Maryland in 1634 in the Ark and Dove expedition, and was the first of the line to come to America, settling in St. Mary's County, Maryland. [this was said by the Maryland    Historical Society after testing to be a copy of said letters who were given to those who came not on correct paper, maybe forged CRGM] (13) Dr. John Briscoe; [we know that this line is not accepted by any one, and that no proof can be found for this line before #14, CRGM] (14) Colonel Phillip     Briscoe (b. 1648), the fifth son, married Susannah Swann, daughter of Colonel Samuel Swann of Maryland. [error Susannah is daughter of Edward Swann, Samuel is her brother, CRGM] His will is dated 4/25/1724, and he was a justice of Charles County court from 1694 to 1701. (15) Edward, the third son (m. Susannah Gerard, d. 1725) [Error Edward m. Susannah Gerard surnamed Slye CRGM]; (16) John, a fourth son (married Mary Broomfield, d. 1818), was a wealthy Columbia County, Georgia, planter and physician, [Error well as far as we know there was no marriage of a
Mary Broomfield and this Dr. John Briscoe that he sites as (16) is the brother of #17 not the father as proven by the records, CRGM] (17) Truman, married Katherine Dunn, daughter of Waters and Sarah Gatewood Dunn. Their children were John; Nancy; Sarah Rebecca; Waters; Sidney Rudolph; Ralph (b. 1798, m. Sarah Dougherty of Columbia County, d. 1881); Phillip; Mary; and Ellen. Hereinafter cited as Wayfarers in Walton. (18) Ralph Came to Walton. (18) Ralph Came to
Walton in the county's early days with his brother Waters and other members of the family. His and Sarah's children were Frances (married a Cannon); Patrick Truman, M.D. (Columbia University, N.Y.); Elizabeth (married a Nowell); William Sanford; Mary (married a Nunnally); John Pierce; Egbert Benson; Lucius; Martha M. (married an Ammons); Sarah Frances (married a Lunceford);
and Susan Capers (married a Davison). (19) Egbert Benson Briscoe (b. 2/14/1840; m. Frances Pascal, who was born 6/25/1848, died 4/3/1936) lived near Monroe. He died 7/12/1919. Their children: Benjamin Pascal (See 20); Otis Dooly (m. Ella Black); Hattie Capers (m. James Stroud); Albert  Sidney (m. Mary Watson); Homer Shaw (m. Emma Palmer); Gus Nunnally (m. Ossie Burton); twins: Lucius (m. Della Stroud) and Lucillus (married a Brooks); Emma Ophelia (m. J.E. Phillips); and Robert Benson. (20) Benjamin Pascal Briscoe (b. 8/14/1868, m. Elizabeth Ophelia Black, daughter of John W. and Frances Baker Black of Walton County 10/31/1889). Their
children: Cornelius DeWitt (See 21); Cora Ruth; Olivia Mae; John Erastus (m. Myrtle Edwards); Julia Pascal; and Louise Frances (m. J. William Thompson). (21) Cornelius DeWitt married Dorothy
Andrews, daughter of Charles Byron and Alice Ansell Andrews of Riverside, California,  2/25/1923.Their children; Margaret Elizabeth (m. 1st,  Herman M. Berner, m. 2nd, John Abele; Ann DeWitt (m. Thomas Monnett David 9/19/1950; and Sally Ansell (m. Frederick Walcutt Terman 6/19/1950). Dr. Cornelius DeWitt Briscoe's long medical career has prompted many honors and wide recognition. He was president of the Isthmian Canal Zone Medical Association in 1922 and was Governor of the American College of Physicians in 1952. He was president of the Walton County Medical Society in 1955, and became administrator of the Walton County Hospital January 1, 1954. Dr.  Briscoe was born in Between August 23, 1890, educated in Walton County public schools, Monroe High School, and Emory University Medical Department, graduating with the degree of doctor of medicine in 1915. He went to the Panama Canal Zone immediately upon
graduating and was assigned to duty in Ancon Hospital, volunteered for service in World War I and was discharged March 19, 1919. He resigned from service with the Panama Canal in June 1922 and became associated with the Herrick Clinic and the Hospital de Panama. In recent years, Dr. Briscoe
returned to his home county to practice in Monroe Source Comments: The pedigree sited before Truman Briscoe seems to be mostly that old false one handed down from those would seem to do anything to get into the Ark and Dove Society

This database of Virginia marriages to 1800 contains over 85,000 names. Each entry includes groom, bride, marriage date, county, and state. Every name is indexed so you can search for one name, or two names that are linked. The marriage date is usually the date of marriage as given in the original entry. However, when no marriage date is given (e.g., the "marriage return" was not provided to the record keeper), the date of the license is used. In a few cases, a marriage will be listed twice, but in two different counties. This most often happened when a couple obtained a license in one
county, but were actually married in another. These marriage records, compiled by Liahona Research at the LDS Family History Library in Salt Lake City, UT, unfortunately do not contain citations for the origin of each entry. The purpose of this database is to provide a time and place for as many
marriages as possible. It is up to the researcher to examine original records (see the Family History  Library Catalogavailable at any LDS family history center under the heading "Vital Records" for the appropriate locality) and gather whatever additional genealogical  information is desired

    Your GenWeb posting caught my attention. I have been working for a couple of years on my husband's Dunn family, and  am stuck at his gg grandparents, Hiram R. b. about 1800/GA and Letitia Greer Dunn of Greene Co GA. Their children were Dr. William. G. Dunn (married Martha A. Woodall of Taliafferro Co 1857), Eliza Ann Dunn Gant, Mary E. Dunn Alfriend, Sarah F. Dunn
Alfriend, John Thomas Dunn (married  Laura E. Blacnhard 1862 in Taliaferro Co), and James Beeman Dunn (my husband's g grandfather) (married Mary E. ??, date ??, can find no record of marriage). In my research, your Gatewood and Waters Dunn keep coming up nearby and the name Briscoe also.  I do know that Hiram had a brother living in Greene Co. - James who was married to
Elizabeth Greer (probably Letitia's sister). After James's  death, it appears Elizabeth married John Briscoe in 1858. I found a "marriage contract" between Elizabeth and John where it is  acknowledged  that what is hers will go to Hiram's children as decreed in James' will, despite her
subsequent marriage to John Briscoe. I find Elizabeth's gravesite at Bethany Church Cemetery, Greene Co., with the inscription, "Mrs. Elizabeth Briscoe/formerly ________(I feel certain formerly Mrs.  James Dunn)/died October 6, 1860/ in the 64th year (b. 1804)/stone collapsed next to
hers not readable (I feel it is James's). Do my Dunn's fit into any of your research? I am most eager to find out Hiram R. Dunn's parentage. A 1880 census did indicate his parents were born in VA. This is all I know. Among many leads I have tried to check out, I have looked into the Waters and Gatewood Dunn's families with no luck so far. I even have secured copies of wills of Waters and Gatewood, trying to make a connection, but with no luck so far.

Thomas, Solomon and William Vickers

Virginia to Hancock  County Georgia

 

 

Speculation:  Thomas Vickers was probably a brother to Solomon Vickers and William Vickers (of Butts Co. Ga.) though this has not been positively proven yet. They appear to have been born in Virginia.  He began migration to Georgia about 1790-1793 probably for Land Grants- (Head Rights).

 

** From notes of Barbara Boynton- “Many Virginians took advantage of the Head Rights of Washington Co. and other early counties of Georgia because they had about 15 months to bring their families into Georgia to settle on them. They traveled back and forth from Georgia to Virginia or North Carolina and finally to Georgia where they lived and their children migrated westward into Alabama and Mississippi.”

 

Ref: p 123 0f “The Powell Families of Va. and  the South- by Lucas-  Deed in Columbia Co. Ga. Book O p 249- Mar 23, 1809- Received April 10, 1809- “I, Cader Powell, of the County of Hancock,  appoint Thomas Vickers as my legal representative to receive, demand and sue for, from the executors of John Watson, deceased of the County of (county not given)- of the State of Virginia, such sums of money, etc. as are now owing to me.” **(apparently Thomas went back and forth to Virginia and Powell needed him to conduct some business for him while there. The Powell family is Barbara’s direct line. They are from Nansemond County Virginia, Norfolk Co.  and Chowan Co. North Carolina and were married to the Needham family or the Bryant family, as the name was passed down.  Ref:  Isle of Wight Co. Virginia Deed Records.   

 

It is said Thomas and William are recorded in records of Rowan Co./Tyrell/ North Carolina, but there was another Thomas there who married Alice? **This needs further research.

 

Thomas Vickers b @1761-1819- is in the 1790 Census of North Carolina in Rowan County with 2 males over 16, 1 male under 16 and 2 females over 16.

 

William Vickers b?-  1 male over 16 and 2 females over 16. 

 

Thomas is in the 1794 and 1795 Tax Digest of Hancock Co. Georgia along with Martin Armstrong, John C. Armstrong and John Armstrong in Capt. Eiland’s District.   (Hancock was taken from parts of Greene and Washington Counties, Ga. in 1793.)

 

He married to Sarah Rhea/Ray- (Rhea family of Ireland)- August 20, 1782 in Georgia She was born in North Carolina, and she died May 9, 1836 in Bibb Co. Ga. She may have been a sister to Solomon Ray who married Jane Echols- or of the same family- who were in Wilkes Co. Ga. Some of the Rhea/Ray family is in Tennessee records. Ref: “Tennessee Cousins by Ray.”

She is in the 1830 Census of Hancock Co. as having 1 male 20-30 and one female 60-70 living in the household. 

 

Note**There is a Solomon and Thomas Vickers who appear in Craven County North Carolina records but appear to be older ones because Thomas was born 1761 and would only be 11 years old here. It is possible that these are related?   

Solomon and Thomas Vickers show up in Craven Co. Court Records, New Bern District Abstracts. They appear in a civil case dated March 29th 1772 in which one Richard Graves was charged with breaking into the corncrib of Thomas Haslin and stealing corn. **(New Bern District covered what became Carteret, Craven, Beaufort, Hyde, Pitt, Dobbs, Jones and Duplin Counties).

**Note of Interest:  Patent Book 18 # 799- p 285 North Carolina Land Patents- there appears a John Vickers who received 200 acres land in Carteret County September 26, 1766- on the east side of White Oak River at Little Bare Swamp joining a point near a pond on Andrew Gillet’s line, both sides of the road and the edge of said swamp??? Who is this?

 

Solomon Vickers appears in St. Paul Parish, Georgia (Burke?) Aug 10, 1774 and in Wilkes County Ga. Papers- 1773-1833- He was on the pay bill list of Edward Barnard’s Rangers as of Dec 6, 1774- March 6, 1775- and from March 6 1775 to Mar 6 1776. He is also on bill for June thru September 1774-1776.  (Older one?)

Solomon Vickers is an elusive person and I have not been able to find out much on him. If anyone has information on him, let me know.

 

Thomas Vickers died about 1819 and his will was proven 1820- Including Division of the estate- Executor of estate, being his son John Ray Vickers and division quite lengthy and detailed. After death of John Ray, his brother James Ray was appointed executor of estate of Sarah Vickers, deceased, by 1837. Ref; Hancock Co. Court of Ordinary.  

 

His children:

 

1. John Ray- 1784 – Married Nancy Briscoe- He drew land in the 1821 Land Lottery- 216 acres in Dooly Co. Ga. Was in the Walton Co. by 1830. Some say he died in Barbour Co. Ala. and other say he died in Leon Co. Florida. But Abstracts of Will Books of Barbour Co. Alabama - Orphans Court lists orphans of John R. Vickers, of Florida- Considering the proximity of Leon Co. Fla. and Barbour Co. Ala. it is possible he died in Florida, but his affairs were recorded in the place where the guardian, Thomas T.B. Vickers lived. Barbour Co. Ala. was taken from part of Henry Co. Ala.         

 

2. Thomas Jr.- 1786- Died 1817-  His father administered his estate and his Uncle Green B. Pinkston was appointed guardian of the children- Bond of $2500. Thomas Jr.  Married in 1811 to Miriam Armstrong- d/o Martin Armstrong and Mary Tate Kuykendahl of Mecklenberg Co. North Carolina, (taken from Anson), and was an early settler of Burke Co. Ga.  **Martin Armstrong was said to be the son of James Armstrong and wife Jean probably, Knoxville Co. TN? (Some say no?) He is part of my Armstrong line, however, who intermarried with the McAfee family of Mercer Co. Kentucky, the Buchanans and the McCouns.  The Kuykendahls are recorded as being from Kentucky also and are ancestors to Betty Schladensky who contributed much information on these families.  The Kuykendahls are Dutch.  Ref: Youngblood-Armstrong Family Records.

**Miriam went to Montgomery Co. Alabama after the death of Thomas and re-married to Gaines Brock, son of John and Rosanna Brock. Thomas and Miriam had two children and when the estate was appraised in 1814 and property sold, each daughter received distribution.  ** The Brocks are probably from Capt Joseph Brock and Mary Beverley Chew of Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania Co. Virginia and some of them lived in Rockbridge Co. and Botetourt Co. Virginia.
