Interesting post off the Screven line. My comments: 1) "Liza Jane" sure comes in for some period male chauvinistic remarks. Don't think I've ever heard "large, fleshy lady" used presumably as a compliment. 2) We are distant kin to these Lees and I think even the Hollingsworths.it's so distant it seemed not worth looking up. 3) For those gone from the South long enough to not remember what a "lightwood knot" is, it goes most often by the name of "fat-lighter-wood."

This group of documents which I transcribed at the Clayton Library is presently on the board. Barbara Poythress Neal had previously found and copied from the Magazine of Virginia Genealogy a series over several issues which were presumably compilations of the identical documents (or at least titled the same) prepared by Ben Weisiger. Ben, now deceased, was a reputable and energetic compiler of many early Virginia records. To my surprise, there were glaring discrepancies between these two compilati

I'm sorry Maynard (& your relatives), for the confusion I mistakenly caused for all of us in mis-stating your descent from Meredith Poythress in my message last night, where I erroneously said that I understood Maynard to be descended from Meredith Poythress' son George Washington Poythress (Wrong!) I think I must have been looking at a printed version of your family's record, and have skipped a portion, when going back & forth between reading & typing. Should not have sent out my message before "sle

Transcribed by Bpn from FHL film 32,548 Mecklenburg Co, VA Deed Book 34, pp.85-86. Bpn notes that Rebecca B Poythress was mother of Thomas M Poythress; she was a party of this deed due to the dower interest she had in it, since this land had been owned by her husband Lewis Poythress ever since 1796 when he had bought it from John Cleaton (with dower released by John's wife Martha). (Rebecca's husband Lewis Poythress had died before 12 Jul 1848, when their son, and Thomas' brother, Lewis Y Poythress made a

Barbara, Ann Woodlief's website may provide some assistance both for John Woodlief (1584ca -1637) and his son, John II: http://www.geocities.com/awoodlief/woodfam.html This excerpt from the above mentioned website provides a thumbnail account for Capt. John Woodlief II (1614-76) -- reporting that he died in Bacon's Rebellion. Interestingly, Wyatt and Woodlief seem to be at odds with one another over a property dispute and, seemingly, not the best of friends in 1658 :). In 1658 he was taken to

236. [POYTHRESS] 1842 Deed 100 acres David Poythress to Wm H Moon & Moon's Deed of Trust [1]
By combining the descriptions of the land in these two documents, we know more about this 100 acres "bounded by the lands of Lewis Poytress, Williamson Rainey senr; Len Thomas and others being the tract or parcel of land formerly owned by Winn Thomas dced" AND we know the 100 acres is "lying and being in lower end of the County Mecklenburg Virginia" Transcribed by Bpn from FHL film 1,870,884 (a more recent filming than film 32,545) Mecklenburg Co, VA Deed Book 29, pp.459-462 are two documents: (1) Deed

Julie & I have periodically been delving in related lines (including Cleaton, Dortch, and Taylor) to try to better understand which Poythresses and others were which. The other day, while hunting for potential obscure Mecklenburg microfilms, I decided to review one that sounded potentially helpful re my gg-grandfather, James E. Poythress, who was born in Mecklenburg Co, VA in 1803. While I did not find any Poythress, I do want to make the below April 1810 Taylor deed available for the potential help it ma

240. [POYTHRESS] Lewis Poythress 1816 retrieved his 33 acres from County by paying Bass' back taxes [1]
This is the same 33 acre parcel Lewis had bought from Dennis Bass on 3 Nov 1813 (which sale was recorded 23 March 1814). Basically Lewis' June 1816 payment is due to a tax lien on the property, though they did not use that terminology. As shown below, the land had been "returned" to the County at the August Court 1815 because of Bass' earlier nonpayment of taxes. I transcribed this item because some of us have seen it indexed in the Mecklenburg Co, VA Grantees Index to Deeds. Transcribed by Bpn from FHL

Umm, Maynard, I suspect from your below message of last night, you may have confused something (maybe something from someone off-List that none of us have seen?) in trying to catch up on too many emails at once after y'all got your power back. This stream didn't mention anything about any Martha Cleaton. (Or any Martha, for that matter.) This message stream was about Taylor documents mainly, and how Edmun/Edmond Taylor was the sibling of Rebecca B. Taylor (2nd wife of Lewis Poythress). She was daughter of

244. [POYTHRESS] Demise of the Family Bible? A proposal [1]
Hi all, Some very helpful historic Family Bible records have been archived at great locations for accessing for research -- some more easily accessed now online, such as those archived at the Library of Virginia, in Richmond. I'm realizing, after learning of the death of a dear older cousin yesterday, that (1) many of our families don't even keep Family Bibles any more for recording births, deaths, and marriages; and (2) there doesn't seem to be any similar type of family record that virtually every famil

248. [POYTHRESS] 1789 Wm Cleaton Deed of Trust re land where Meredith Poythress then lived [1]
This Deed of Trust secured a pre-existing debt that William Cleaton of Mecklenburg Co, VA owed to a man in Warren Co, NC. By this Deed of Trust the debt was secured by land owned by William Cleaton, which was part of the tract of land on which Meredith Poythress was then living (while married to William Cleaton's daughter Edith). What is curious to me, is that the document does not say in what county or state the land is located; presumably in Mecklenburg Co, VA since that's where the Deed of Trust was rec

Thanks so much, Julie, for letting me know that in that Chancery Case (Mecklenburg County, Virginia: case# 1824-084 Rebecca Taylor v. Adms. David Dortch the younger, box 248) Edmund Taylor specifically states he's the son of Rebecca Dortch who married David Taylor (the parents of Rebecca B. Taylor who married Lewis Poythress) -- thus clarifying that indeed Edmund & Rebecca B. were siblings! I just looked & indeed that Chancery Case is one of the items awaiting review in my "To Do" pile -- a pile more huge
