Fannie F. Leach is listed as a child of N.A. Leach, born 20 Apr 1868, d. 15 Nov 1895. She is listed on the 1880 census as age 12, gr neice of head of household, Betsy Hicks. Mother Nancy A. Leach lived there also age 27, single and Nancy's mother, Deborah Hicks Leach, age 60, a widow.

5503 Susanna is the only tombstone with a inscription in a Williams family cemetery that has 12-15 tombstones. The inscription was transcribed by Tony Parker back in the early 1970's.

It is a very old cemetery and is located on 50 acre tract of land originally granted to George Williams (d. 1797).

Susanna's tomsbtone listed her as the wife of J.W. Williams. Because of the cemetery location, it would lead one to speculate that she married one of George Williams' sons. In my opinion she is either the first wife of Jeremiah Williams or the wife of his brother James Williams. The property owners have always been told that Jeremiah Williams was buried there as well. If this is indeed true, chances are that his first wife may have been Susanna instead of Florence DeLaney.

5504 The birth dates of several children on their tombstones/death certificates don't match the census data. For example, in the 1850 census the only children listed at William T. [2 years old] and Richard M. [1 year old]. According to their tombstones Richard M. was born 8 Apr 1848 and William T. was born 9 Nov 1848. Murdock M. was not listed in the 1850 Census and was listed as 8 years old in the 1860 Census but his death certificate and tombstone list his date of birth at 4 Mar 1847. I believe it is more likely that William T. was born in 1847/1848 and Richard M. was born 1848/1849 and Murdock M. was born in 1852.  Family F1991
 
5505 The following is from the research of James Vann Comer (jvcomer@windstream.net) and Stuart Armstrong(stuarta@aros.net)

1. William Bean (208) was born either 1773 or 1777. His birthplace has not been established with any degree of surety. Some researchers say Rowan County, North Carolina, others South Carolina, date 1773 or 1777. He is often confused with William Bean (b. 1754, South Carolina). There is a William Bean family in Rowan County in the 1820 Census, two families in 1810, one in 1800, and none in 1790.

There were no children in the household in the 1800 census, and his age is marked as 26-45 (his wife's 16-26). This places the probable marriage at about 1800, and William's birthdate between 1754 and 1774 and his wife's birthdate between 1773 and 1784. If they were approximately the same age, then their birthdates must be around 1774.1,2,3

William Bean (208) married Celia Wyatt (209), daughter of _______ Wyatt (1499), circa 1800 in Rowan County, North Carolina. Some sources say this marriage took place in 1776, but I prefer to consider 1800 or 1801 as the approximate date, and I have serious doubts about the identity of the wife.4,5,6 He married Ruth Marshall (210) circa 1820 in Rowan County, North Carolina.7,8 He died in 1829 in Carthage, Moore County, North Carolina, at the home of his brother Jesse.9,10

According to family records William Bean of Rowan County was born in 1773, and he had a brother Jesse Bean who lived in Moore County. William was, according to this, 17 years old when the first census was taken. He would have been 27 in the 1800 census.

William made his home in Rowan County, North Carolina. It is now Davidson County. His home adjoined the land belonging to John Peacock and Anna Gallemore. He owned a mill, but whether it was run by a sluice from the Yadkin, or by a smaller stream emptying into the Yadkin, is not now known. A great-grandson, C. G. Sullivan of Moore County, North Carolina, said that William died at the home of his brother Jesse near Carthage, the county-seat of Moore County before 1830.

His mill was left to the youngest son by the second wife, Daniel Bean. Two of William's sons married two of the neighboring Gallemore girls and came to Kentucky in 1833. By the first wife, Celia Wyatt, there were seven children: John, William Collins, Jesse, Phoebe, Elizabeth, Rachel, and Celia; and by the second wife, Ruth Marshall, there were two sons, Joshua and Daniel Bean.

There is much confusion about the ancestry of William Bean, due to the common use of the name. Some sources attribute as many as 24 children to William Bean and Celia Wyatt, but many of these can be shown to belong to another generation, and probably belong to another family entirely. Everyone seems to agree that William Bean married Celia Wyatt, but which William Bean and when is open to debate.

The families to which William Bean is claimed to belong have no siblings named Jesse. On the other hand, the story that he died in the home of his brother may be incorrect. He did have a son-in-law named Jesse Sullivan, whose family resided in Carthage, and also a son named Jesse.11 Twenty one or more children have been accredited to William Bean and Celia Wyatt, but the ages and dates quoted make this highly unlikely. Seven of the children -- John, William Collins, Jesse, Rachel, Betsy, Phoebe, and Celia -- are well supported, except for the identity of the mother. The rest probably belong to another William Bean, perhaps his father. Since the original source from which many researchers have deduced this marriage is not documented in any that I have seen so far, it must be considered conjectural. Most of the researchers seem to be quoting each other. Several other researchers found on the internet have reached different conclusions about the parents of many of these offspring.

In one of the oft-quoted sources, Beans from all over several states (Kentucky, Tennesse, North and South Carolina, and Arkansas) are collected as though they are all related, with little regard to geography. This is sloppy research indeed. Even the punctuation is frequently ambiguous, so that you have to read it again and again to figure out what the author is intending to say. The record continues with more inconsistancies, tracing several of the families for several generations, until one gets weary of trying to make any sense of it. The more these sources are studied, the less confident one becomes that any of it is correct.

The bottom line is that I am no longer convinced that Celia Wyatt is the mother of John, Jesse, Rachel, Elizabeth, William Collins, Phoebe, and Celia Bean. This is where responsible research must begin. And why is not Jesse, the brother of William, mentioned at all? The only Jesse in the whole family is his son. Or is he?

William who married Anna Buckalew (another candidate couple) died in 1809 in Lincoln County Missouri, yet we have a clear statement that our William died near Carthage, Moore County, North Carolina in 1829 in the home of his brother Jesse. So that eliminates William and Anna as candidates. But it could also be that the statement is in error. Perhaps he died in the home of his SON Jesse. If William and Celia are the true ancestors then there must be an adjustment in their marriage date by about 25 years, or in the identity of their parents. I would assume the former. I am guessing that the circa 1776 marriage date quoted by several sources is based on the incorrect assignment of children who are really William's siblings.

William made his home in Rowan County, North Carolina, part of which is now Davidson County. According to Smith and Edwards, his home adjoined the land belonging to John Peacock and Anna Gallemore. On the 1800 census, William Bean is found on the same page as Elisha, James, John, William, William Sr, and William Jr. Gallemore. There are no John Peacocks. This may have been a mistaken deduction derived when Richard Edwards thought John and Anna's surnames were reversed, and the John Gallemore who lived nearby may have been another relative. It is also possible that John Peacock was also known as John Gallemore, since his children bore that name. An examination of the census records (not just the index) may be instructive.

In 1800 there were only two members in the William Bean household -- a male 26-45, and a female 16-26, presumably his wife.12,13,14

Celia Wyatt (209) was born circa 1776 in North Carolina.

Known children of William Bean (208) and Celia Wyatt (209) were as follows:

Ruth Marshall (210) was born circa 1773 in North Carolina. She married _______ Marshall (211).15,16,17 She died in North Carolina.

According to the 1850 Census- Population Schedule [F.2.609 P], Ruth Bean resided in the home of her daughter, Rebecca Davis (Age- 30) and her family, Henry (Age- 11), Ivy (Age- 10), Elizabeth (Age- 8), Sarah (Age- 5) & Louisa E. (Age- 2) in the Southern Division, Davidson County, NC. The following information was recorded on October 23, 1850 on Page No. 364; Line No. 17- Dwelling No. 713; Family No. 728: Ruth Bean, Age- 56, Female, Listed as cannot read or write.

According to the Davidson County, NC Wills (1823-1940) CR # 032.801.1- Bean, Ruth (1852) Will Dated- January 10, 1852 & Codicil Dated- January 10, 1852; Probated- May Term 1852.

5506 The Jesse Sowell Family Bible lists her birthdate as Jan 8, 1846 Seawell, Nancy "Nannie" (I07263)
 
5507 The link between William Smith and his son William Smith is far from being proven. But it is my belief they were father and son based upon two land transactions. In 1769, William Smith purchased 100 acres from David Cagle on Flat [Flag] Creek. In 1801, a younger William Smith, received a 50 acre Land Grant adjoining the prior grant. William Smith sold all of the rights to the 50 acre tract to George Cagle in 1807 "except the graveyard where my father is buried". This reference I believe points to William Smith Sr. as being the father of William Smith.

There are unfortunately several William Smiths active in Cumberland/Moore County in the late 1700's. I have tried to list below the references to the father William Smith. I do want to note that it is possible that one or more of the following references may refer to a different William Smith.

1763, Mar 8 -- Land Grant #492 & 673, Cumberland County, NC

1801, Jun 17 -- Land Grant #1923, Moore County, NC
William Smith Senr. received a 50 acre Land Grant located Southeast of Cabbin Creek adjoining the plantation where his father did live and John Cagle. George Cagle and William Smith were chain carriers. [There is confusion about whose "father" this refers to. The land was originally entered by James Williams in 1796 and the entry references "including his Father's improvement where his Father lives". The purchase price was ultimately not paid and William Smith re-entered it in 1799. The "Father's plantation" would seem to refer to James Williams' father, George Williams, who resided nearby. But then in 1807, William Smith deeded all rights to this tract to George Cagle "except the grave yard where his father is buried." William Smith's likely father, William Smith, purchased land adjoining this tract in 1769 from David Cagle.]

1807, Feb 25 -- Deed Book 65 Page 115, Moore County, NC
William Smith deeded George Cagle 50 acre located adjoining Cagle. Smith deeded all rights to the 50 acres to Cagle except the "grave yard where his father is buried." John Smith and Jesse Brown were witnesses.
 
Smith, William (I36335)
 
5508 The only reference to this Nicolas Wallis is found in a 1791 Moore County, NC Land Entry (granted 1792) of 50 acres to Mary Hines. This land was listed as including Nicolas Wallis' improvement. This could have been referencing an actual structure such as a house, barn or fence, etc. or it could have possibly been that Nicolas Wallis simply cleared a portion of the land. This tract of land was located roughly 1/2 mile north of the Robbins crossroads just west of Hwy 705 (roughly mile from Everet Wallace's 50 acre Land Grant). No other reference to a Nicolas Wallis/Nicholas Wallace during that time frame has been located. The close proximity of these tracts combined with the fact that Everet named his first son Nicholas seem to point to Nicholas potentially being Everet's father. It is my belief that they are related but at this point I cannot say with any certainty that Nicholas was Everet's father, brother or even uncle.
 
Wallace, Nicholas (I31829)
 
5509 Their are conflicting sources as to the maiden name of Rebecca Jane. Their marriage certificate lists her as "Jane Brady" while many identify her as Rebecca Jane Hardin. On death certificates for her children Nancy, William M., Mary Alice and Margaret Lou she is listed each time as "Jane Hardin/Harden" while Robert's death certificate lists her as "Rebecca Brady". Interesting enough she is buried in a family cemetery known as "Harden Cemetery". Family F2212
 
5510 There has been much confusion regarding Jeremiah and another Jeremiah Williams (b. 1775). There has even been a question as to whether they were the same individual. It is my belief that there were in fact two separate men. This is based in the fact that both men appear in the 1830 Census in Moore County, NC and their individual land records show ownership in different locations. This Jeremiah owned a great deal of land north of the town of Robbins, NC located on Bear Creek and Deep River. The other Jeremiah mentioned primarily owned land south of the town of Robbins, NC located between Flag Creek and Buffalo Creek. Additionally, Y-DNA testing from descendants of each of these Jeremiahs do not match each other indicating that they were not closely related.

5523 Very likely that Nancy and Ann were the same person.

Nancy was listed in two references in Bensalem Presbyterian Church records in Moore County, NC regarding her marriage to Jesse Sanders in Mar 1838 and her death in Sep 1841.

Ann was listed in the 1834 Probate and Deed records in Hinds County, MS of deceased brother John Murchison. Also, in 1846 in Moore County, NC, Jesse Sanders was Administrator for the Estate of Ann Sanders, decd. The only holding within the estate was $1000 in the hands of Simon Murchison. Simon was a brother to John Murchison and listed in his probate and deed records as well in 1834 also.

5529 When Leonard Harris Wallace and his brother, William P. Wallace, left home to enlist in the army at Troy, Montgomery County, NC, they made a vow to each other and to their mother that, if either was killed in service, the other would take the body back to the family home for burial. After saying good-by to their family, the two boys began playing their guitars as they walked down the road toward the county seat ( this story was related to Allen Wallace by Mrs. Addie Bethel Reeves).
It is not known whether the vow was kept. Records show that William P. Wallace was on furlough from February 10, 1862 to March 19, 1862. It is possible but unlikely that he did at that time return the body of Leonard Harris to their home. (from the work of Allen Wallace) 
Wallace, Leonard Harris (I24947)
 
5530 While I do not have concrete proof of this family I have listed it as I feel that there are a number of facts pointing in this direction. This connection is an assumption based on the following:

*Mary Wallace (45+) and Isham Wallace (16-26) are living next door to each other in the 1800 Montgomery County, NC Census.

*Mary has two sons listed in her household (10-16) & (16-26).

*Eli Wallace (1790-1855) listed his birthplace as Montgomery County, NC on his Graves County, KY Death Certificate.

*Eli Wallace listed his parents as E. Wallace and M. Wallace on his Death Certificate

* Eli Wallace was granted 30 acres in Montgomery County in 1826 adjoining his own 200 acre tract that was originally purchased by Mary Wallace from John Morris in 1794

*Nathan Wallace (1785-aft 1850) was also listed as having been born in NC and in 1850 was living next door to Isham's son Isham (b. 1804) in Graves County, KY.

*All three of these men migrate to western KY in the 1820s and 1830s and lived very closely to each other.

*This family also seems closely related to another group of Wallaces from Montgomery County. William Wallace (b. 1791-1800), Harbard/Harbart Wallace (b.1796), Elizabeth "Betsy" Wallace Hagler (b. 1800) and Ann Wallace Hall (b. 1803). A number of William's children migrated to western KY as did Harbard/Harbart and family. They lived in the same communities as the Wallaces above and their descendants intermarried. While we do not know the identity of their parents, multiple lines descending from these children have passed down orally that the four of them were indeed siblings. 
Family F10965
 
5531 While there is not concrete proof that Elizabeth was a Horner and the daughter of George Horner and Priscilla Winslow I believe that she is based on the following pieces of circumstantial evidence:

Lydia Hunsucker is the second known burial [after her likely grandfather George Horner] in the Melton/Muse Cemetery.

Abraham Hunsucker can be found living very near George Horner, purchasing items from George's estate as well as the estate of Ancel Melton. Ancel married Lydia Horner - likely Elizabeth's sister.

Finally, Abraham and Elizabeth named two of their children George and Priscilla.

 
Horner, Elizabeth (I35345)
 
5532 While we have not been able to prove that William and Moses are the children of Aaron Ritter it is the long held belief by several Ritter researchers. Partially based on the belief that Aaron Ritter has not been located between 1790 in Surry County, NC and 1830 in New Hanover [present day Pender County] NC. He is believed to have migrated north into VA and then west into Eastern TN prior to relocating to Pender County, NC near his brother Moses. Family F12141

It was ruled that he must marry one or he would go to jail. He married Elizabeth Smith.

5538 William Lane Wallace was one of the more colorful of the Wallace characters, spending a great deal of time in trouble with the law and rumored to have fathered children by multiple women. He was involved with numerous court cases with Delphy Lakey, Elizabeth Smith & Mary Davis in the early 1840's and it has been passed down through his descendants that he was living with all three and the court finally ordered him to marry one of them. He married Elizabeth Smith. He fought in the Civil War and eventually moved to Dillon, SC. He is most likely a son or grandson of Everet Wallace.

5539 William Reeves, according to THE HISTORY OF Marshall County, was the son of Reubin Reeves who moved to Marshall County from Alabama in 1830. However, a daughter-in-law of Louisa Eliza and William, Mrs. Addie Bethel Reeves, was of the opinion that he came from Virginia. William had previously married Priscilla Jane Reed and their daughter, also named Priscilla Jane, married Alexander Lee Riley, a son of Anna Mariah Wallace Riley as sister of Louisa Eliza Wallace. William was a soldier in the Mexican War. (from the work of Allen Wallace.) Reeves, William (I24945)
 
5540 William Riley is believed to haved lived most of his adult life in Macon County, Missouri (from the work of Allen Wallace). Riley, William (I24988)

5542 William Wallace [1791/1800-1843] was married to Chaney Berry Cranford and lived most of his life near the Uwharrie River and Ophir in Montgomery County, NC. Many of their children migrated to western KY and can be found residing among and intermarrying with the descendants of the other Wallaces from the nearby area. While we do not know the idenity of William's parents, it is my belief that William was not a sibling to the Isham, Nathan and Eli Wallaces of Graves and Calloway County, KY but more likely a first cousin. It has been passed down through William's descendants that his siblings were Harbard/Harbart Wallace [1796-1872], Ann Wallace [1803-1900], and Elizabeth 'Betsy' Wallace [1800-1905]. Harbert also moved his family to Graves County, KY in the 1830's while Ann married William Hall and remained in Montgomery County, NC. Betsy married Phillip Hagler and lived most of her life in neighboring Stanly County, NC.

5545 Wyatt Williamson and Martha Williams Cagle were married in 1890. Raleigh Cagle was born out of wedlock in 1858 many years prior to their marriage. Martha listed her parents as William and Mary Williams in 1890. This would lead me to believe that Martha was married to a Cagle after 1850 and prior to Raleigh's birth in 1858. The Cagle likely died sometime between 1850-1858. Martha and Raleigh can be found next door to Wyatt Williamson in the 1860 Census and then with Wyatt in the 1870 and 1880 Census. They were married three years prior to Wyatt's death in 1893. Family F6339
 
5546 Y-DNA tests have proven that Chestley Horner was actually not a son of George R. Horner.

The Y-DNA test results of Charles Horner [son of Jesse Gilbert Horner < Jesse Rufus Horner < Chestley Thomas Horner] is an exact match to Darrell Horner [son of John Bunyan Horner Jr. < John Bunyan Horner < William R. Horner < Chestley Thomas Horner]. Given that their closest Horner relative was Chestley himself, we are certain that the Y-DNA they currently possess is the same as the Y-DNA that Chestley possessed. In comparison, Don Horner [son of Joseph W. Horner < Josiah Turner Horner < James Washington Horner < George Washington Horner < George R. Horner] submitted his Y-DNA and it matches a male descendant of Thomas N. Horner [twin brother to George R. Horner] but does not match Darrell or Charles' confirming that Chestley's Y-DNA did not match that of his believed father, George R. Horner.

I've written up an analysis below and would be happy to talk to any of you further. Please know that this is very common. Many times, DNA results ultimately tell us that our ancestors aren't always who we think that are. I've had the same thing happen on several of my lines.

Darrell and Charles' Y-DNA very closely matches two Williamson males from upper Moore County. Y-DNA is specific to males and is passed only from father to son. So a male's Y-DNA is the same as his father, his father's father, his father's father's father and so on.

Given that Charles and Darrell's Y-DNA matches the Williamson family rather than the Horner family means that somewhere along the line a Williamson male fathered a Horner son. Based on research I believe that is it most likely that Chestley was fathered by a Williamson [or a male with Williamson Y-DNA].

We have always wondered if Chestley Horner was in fact a son of the Revolutionary War soldier George R. Horner. In fact, the main reason for having Darrell and Charles tested was in hopes of proving this. Chestley was born around 1827. He would've been the last child of George Horner and his second wife Priscilla Winslow. George Horner was born in 1761 and his second wife Priscilla was born in 1784. This would've made George 66 years old when Chestley was born. Priscilla on the other hand would've been 43. Fathering a child at 66 is certainly not impossible as there are plenty of examples of it happening, however it does seem unlikely. Chestley was also not mentioned during the application process for George Horner's Revolutionary War Pension nor Priscilla's application for a Widow's Pension. [Note: There are many errors throughout these applications citing George and Priscilla Horner's date of marriage prior to Priscilla's birth and son George W. Horner's testimony that he was born in 1784 when in fact he was born in 1817. I have always believed that these misrepresentations were due to the fact that George Horner's was married prior and legally separated in 1811 in Orange County, NC. His wife Elizabeth Fussell Horner later migrated to Dickson County, TN. I believe that Priscilla and son George W. Horner testified inaccurately based on concern that the first wife and family might be entitled to the pension if all were revealed.] Back to Chestley. From Moore County court and tax records, we know that Chestley ended up with the George Horner land on Locust Spring and that Priscilla was listed as his mother.

1849 -- Tax List, Moore County, NC District 9
Prissey Horner 170 acres valued at $200 on Locust Spring

1852, Oct 27 -- 1851-1853 County Court Minutes, Moore County, NC Page 337
Ordered that Chesley R. Horner be released from payment of $0.50 charged on land taxes against him and his mother least for the same charged in 1851 to be paid in 1852.

1852 -- Tax List, Moore County, NC District 9
Mrs. Priscilla Horner 170 acres valued at $220 on Locust Spring
Chestly Horner 1 white poll

1853, Jan 5 -- Priscilla's date of death from tombstone

1854 -- Tax List, Moore County, NC District 9
Chesley Horner 170 acres valued at $220, 1 white poll and 1 black poll

He is also found in the 1850 living with George and Doxy Horner Williams. I am fairly certain that Doxy Horner was a daughter to George Horner and Priscilla Winslow and therefore a likely sister to Chestley. Another circumstantial piece of evidence is that Chestley?s grandson John Bunyan Horner was born in 1891 and his father William died in 1896 in Hope Mills, NC. As a young boy John Bunyan was orphaned, sent back to Moore County and adopted by William Thomas Horner. William Thomas Horner was the son of George W. Horner and grandson of George R. Horner.

All of this leads me to believe that it is likely that a Williamson male fathered Chestley. It is entirely possible that no one knew that as he was clearly treated as family, ending up with the family home place as well as he and his descendants have very close affiliations with other Horners.

Lastly, utilizing the results of Malinda Singletary's Autosomal DNA [which includes all lines not just paternal as with Y-DNA], she is a match to Ken Poole. Ken descends from the Williamson family and is also a Y-DNA match to Darrell and Charles. Ken descends from Ken Poole Sr. < Raleigh Wyatt Poole < Wyatt Willamson [1802-1893] < William Williamson [1744-1848] < John Williamson [1711-1823] < John Williamson [1684-1790] < William Williamson [1648-1690].
