they are transcribed & computer-searchable!

message written by our then-subscriber Ruth Kauffman on 13 Nov 1998, which
message ties together the Nance & Giles names, as well as a Malone, some of
which names include the 4 Nance men who witnessed the 1801 deed I just
posted in which Lewis Poythress sold 100 acres to John Giles.

from you again. It is great that you included your Source notes at the

- Sarah, I don't think that the two wives (Mary Speed Dortch and Sarah Dortch) of David Poythress have been proven sisters. I haven't researched any of the wives of the Poythress men. It is very likely they were related but exactly how I don't know. I do not have information on the George W. Poythress who is the son of David Poythress other than?I didn't find him anywhere after the 1880 Census (I believe Warren County N.C)?where he?is listed as William Poythress and is living in the household of his sister Ma

- Thanks Barbara! I recently got a chancery on Goodwyn Taylor that I still need to read and process. I had not seen this record, so greatly appreciated. I did want to point out that Edmund Taylor in my opinion has to be Rebecca Taylor's brother. Because in the chancery, in his deposition, he specifically states that he is the son of Rebecca Dortch married to David Taylor. Also, I can't remember exactly, I need to pull the case out, but I think Edmund also specifically stated that Rebecca, the wife of Lewis P

- 288. Re: [POYTHRESS] James Speed Poythress name idea 
- Julie, you have sure given a great possibility for the name of my G-Grandfather James Speed Poythress. Seems the Speed, Dortch and Taylor families have been linked one way or another for many generations. I hope you find more about this James Speed at some point and I will surely be keeping my eyes open in future research. I would love a scan of the Chancery you have. By chance do you know anything about the Lewis Dortch you mentioned? All of the Poythress men, for the most part had very common or Biblical

- Julie, point of clarification needed here, please. In your message about
the James Speed Poythress name idea, that I just quoted in a message about
Names from family connections, you mentioned Sarah Speed as the wife of
Newman Dortch. I thought his wife's name was Ann, from the below marriage
record saying Mary Speed Dortch's mother Ann gave permission for her
marriage to David Poythress. Did you possibly mis-speak like I did
yesterday, -- or am I confusing two Newman Dortches, or ??

Julie, I would appreciate knowing which Chancery Case you referred to in

up here, awaiting my attention;) then yes I'd appreciate a PDF scan of it.
Elaine, I've found it interesting that as I've been plowing through old Deed

surnames of both "Lewis" and "Meredith." So perhaps both Lewis Po

The Taylors show up in the Speed family also.
John Speed , the second son of James B.Speed & Mary Pulley was born Feb.5,1714.He lived in Mecklenburg County, Va. He married a widow named Mary Taylor. Her maiden name was Minetry.
They were married Oct. 6,1737 in Surrey Co,Va. which is the County in which James Speed lived. John & Mary were married for 45 yr. She died July 1,1782 & he died March 8, 1785. They had seven sons & 4 daughters.The daughters were:Sarah born Feb.14,1743, Martha born Aug.11
- 293. Re: [POYTHRESS] Taylor & Speed & Poythress? James Speed Poythress 
- Elaine and Sarah,
what are the dates on George W. Poythress?
Could he be my William Poythress age 23 that married Julia age 18, shown in
1850 Census for Greensville Co VA and had daughter Martha born in 1858?
Daughter Martha married in Greensville co VA in 1880. Julia appears with
no husband in the 1870 Greensville co VA census so I have always thought
that my William Poythress died in the Civil War.

Were David's 2 wives sisters? I have Mary listed as a Speed with her mother

- I would welcome any help in better puzzling out more info about this item.
(1) Lewis Poythress is one of the witnesses to this deed;
(2) it seems to me that this Peter was most likely not the Peter who was
son of Meredith: while it was legal for minors to own land, it's pretty
unusual for one to be a buyer at such a young age -- we know Meredith's son
Peter was only about 8 years old in 1792; we know Meredith's son Peter was
born about 1784 since he first was listed (upon reaching age 16)
