251. [POYTHRESS] 1796 deed John Cleaton to Lewis Poythress, Mecklenburg Co, VA [1]
These items transcribed by Bpn from FHL film 32,536 Mecklenburg Co, VA Deed Book 10, p.62 and p.96. Note: In the original recording of the deed on p.62 of DB 10, in Apr of 1797, there is no mention of the name of John Cleaton's wife, Martha Cleaton, and no dower release recorded right then (which is not unusual). However, 34 pages further, on p.96 of DB 10, her name appears when it was ordered on 9 Apr 1799 to go and examine her since she could not conveniently appear. She was examined that same day, and
252. Re: [POYTHRESS] Poythress obituary [1]
I presume, Randy, you're asking about the Ben Poythress whose name was mentioned as father of James Louie Poythress, whose obit I posted a few days ago. Ben Edward Poythress (whose actual first name was Bennie, per family records) was the youngest son of - Algernon Edward Poythress (b.12 Aug 1844 in Mecklenburg Co, VA & d.11 Apr 1918 in Lauderdale Co, MS), and - Ellen Belle McKinley (b.18 Aug 1851 in Sumter Co, AL & d.6 Aug 1918 in Lauderdale Co, MS).

254. [POYTHRESS] Peter Poythress witness to Deed 1783 for 90 ac Mecklenburg Co land [1]
I suspect this witness would be the Peter Poythress who is listed by Batte as "of Branchester." Batte shows he lived from 1715 to 1785. Both Batte and Dr. Claiborne Thweatt Smith (in his article "Poythress of Prince George County, Virginia" contained in John Bennett Boddie's 1960 volume, "Historical Southern Families, Volume IV") show this Peter Poythress married his first cousin Elizabeth Bland and had 9 children - one son and 8 daughters, through whom they have many descendants, noted Batte. One child
255. Re: [POYTHRESS] Taylor & Speed & Poythress? James Speed Poythress [1]
More amplification, & then I quit for today -- obviously I need more coffee: If this potential connection through the Taylor line was in his paternal grandmother's ancestry, then there was a likely double Speed connection, since James Speed Poythress' mother's name (wife of David Poythress) was Mary Speed Dortch.

I just noticed in the Aug 1998 transcription of this deed posted by Lyn on 7 Aug 1998 captioned "Thomas M Poythress Estate" as had been transcribed that month by Bea, his mother, she read the west boundary of the land as "Black road." I readily acknowledge that Bea would know better than I that indeed Black Road was to the west of the land, so you can disregard my bracketed notation in my transcription just posted, where I was questioning whether the word was "roads" or "woods".

She was daughter of Amey Malone & the elder Goodwyn Taylor; Susannah's 8 siblings were: - Sally/Sarah who married Abel Dortch; - Martha Taylor who married John Cleaton (John was one of the children of William Cleaton & Jane Poole; his siblings included Edith Cleaton who married Meredith Poythress and Jeane Cleaton who married Edward Giles); - Polly Jones Taylor who

Adms. David Dortch the younger, box 248), I see that I did not transcribe the 3-page deposition of Newman Dortch, which is a bit harder to read than some of the other documents.

Both would have been to young to be the William shown in 1850 census.

According to Family Group Sheets that I've seen from this branch of the family, this William Lewis Poythress (born about 1844, eldest son of Thomas M Poythress & Lucy J Thomas), married Anna Jane "Ella" JONES on 20 Dec 1866 at Rehoboth Methodist Church in Blackridge, Mecklenburg Co, VA.

267. [POYTHRESS] James Speed Poythress name idea [1]
I have several Poythress emails I want to thoroughly go through and reply to. Haven't read through all these postings here yet, but want to make a theory on the name. My theory is that it's very likely your James Speed Poythress was named after James Speed, the father of Sarah Speed. There is a James Speed that was Newman Dortch's father in law. I have a chancery referencing the will. It doesn't exist anymore in the courthouse or Library of Virginia. I cannot find any record of this James Speed other than t
268. Re: [POYTHRESS] Taylor & Speed & Poythress? James Speed Poythress [1]
Correction: I should know better than to try to go by memory. What I meant to say is that James Speed Poythress was born in 1829, son of David Poythress. It was David who was the son born in 1806 of Lewis Poythress & Rebecca B. Taylor. So James Speed Poythress' paternal grandmother was the Taylor, through whose line the potential connection to Speed could have flowed. Sorry for the confusion; we have enough confusion in the Poythress arena without me contributing to it;) Bpn On Wed, Feb 25, 2009 at 12

271. [POYTHRESS] Martha E Walker was not wife of a Lewis Poythress [1]
John Vogt's book, "Virginia Historic Marriage Register: Mecklenburg County Marriages, 1765-1853" listed two marriages for Martha E Walker, both in July 1846, one of which prompted some discussion on this list, and was apparently aa erroneous listing. This entry showed Martha E Walker in Jul 1846 married a Lewis Poythress, by minister James McAden, but no bondsman or consent was listed for this marriage. I'm convinced this was an error, since (1) Rebecca B Taylor, in April 1802 became the 2nd wife of the

275. [POYTHRESS] Taylor & Speed & Poythress? James Speed Poythress [1]
Some years ago, I tried to track down why "Speed" was the middle name for James Speed Poythress, and why my own line of Poythresses had listed "Speed" as the middle name of the wife of James Edward Poythress (Catherine Speed Preston). At that time, I learned there had been a prominent Speed family in the Brunswick-Mecklenburg county area of VA, much admired by many in the community, but I could find no reason beyond just admiration to account for it. The below potential connection doesn't help re my Prest
