476. Re: re Pocahontas, Rolfe, et al. [1]
I have both the Robertson book _Pocahontas and her Descendants_ and the Brown book in hand (the joys of being a book dealer). My conclusion is that both are tertiatary (sp?) sources and neither can be relied on. Robertson seems to, based on the Bolling Memoirs, "adopt" Jane Poythress (not Poyers) who married in England. The basis for this decision is the inabilily to find a Poyers family anywhere and that Poythress was already settled in Virginia and in the immediate neighborhood of Rolfe's residence at He

Poythress List: RE: Maynard's VERY OBSCURE post (see below) Maynard, Did a new batch of Maker's Mark find its way into your cup ? I don't think anyone on this list has a clue as to what you're talking about. How about explaining yourself! Naw, lets wait and see if anyone figures it out. We'll call it the Maynard Moniker Mystery. I'll have to figure out a prize for the first person who posts the right answer. Iron Duke use to be a regular on the VA-Roots list. Cool.

480. Re: Linda Starr Re: Need another Thomas ? [1]
Hello POYTHRESS researchers, I must say you guys really know how to make a gal feel at home on a list. Actually, I'm lurking because I'm still not sure I am a POYTHRESS, but I have remembered the possible connection -- BOLLING, and I'm not even sure I'm one of those either. It's just a given name in my GA TRAYLOR line ... Up front -- I dont have a list of Rev. War soldiers who rec'd land in GA -- what I do have is various books on early Wilkes Co. where my SPARKS, STARR and other lines re

482. Re: GA update [1]
Poythress List, Re: Linda Starr's Update on GA land patents Linda, I really am grateful that you're helping us out with this. I see from your Web page that you're managing your own list. Perhaps when we get a bit further along we'll use your Web page as a model. Having some ascii text files to download would be a nice way to get new subscribers up to speed on where things stand. I find your information very helpful. Obviously, we're going to need to go get that Francis Poythress record from Georgia
483. Francis/Georgia/etc. [1]
Al....I don't have a Francis buying land in GA in 1785. You got that one you could send me? As to why they all went to GA....that one is easy. The govmt. had "traded" the Creeks and Cherokees out of huge chunks of land and the State of GA ran a series of land lotteries, 6 of them I believe, between about 1780s and 1825. You "had to be present to win" because the object was to draw settlers. Most of the "awards" were in increments of 202 acres. Most of the results and winners and losers are fairly well

487. Re: Francis Poythress - 1785 Georgia - An Assist [1]
To Judy re: GA Archives, Al gives me too much credit. I would suggest looking in Washington and Greene Co. records -- indexes, whatever. In 1785 he was living in "then" Wilkes Co. GA but was taxed for 100 acres in Washington Co. The Helper "suggests" Washington Co. records aren't extant until 1865 but you should double check that. There is the possibility he shows up in Greene Co. I've never been to the Archives personally ... Good luck. Linda To the list: Al wrote: >So Judy, there you have it.

Al: With respect to the Cavaliers & Pioneers abstract new from Caroline: why do you say it contributes to...belief...that the original immigrant? It strikes me that it does also but are you implying that you read something in particular into that patent? I guess my problem is I just don't understand patents...and this one in particular. Is this a "grant" or a "bill of sale" (so to speak) wherein Francis is buying 350 acres "of Jenkin al". And is the implication for the "450

Hi Poythress List, The following is a wonderful post to the VA-Roots list from Craig Scott. I suppose I could/should have asked Craig to repost it to us, but I can't image he would mind letting us benefit from his expertise. Please take some time to read it -- it is a real keeper!

On Pochahontas, if I am not mistaken, wasn't Jane Poythres the daughter of Francis? The answer would be yes, descendants of Jane Poythress who md. Thomas ROLFE would be descendants of Pochantas. Correct me if I am wrong. Heather
491. Re: query on the net [1]
Jean Poythress Spille: Cameron Padgett is the grandson of my aunt Eva Poythress Austin and the son of my cousin Elena Austin Padgett. I have met Cam at at least one family reunion in Screven County, Georgia. He lives in Atlanta area and dabbles around in the GDAH (Georgia Department of Archves and History) from time to time. Cam and I occasionally e-mail stuff back and forth. I think Cam's case of the genealogy bug goes in and out of remission from time to time because he is normal and we are not. Bes

Al, confirming your report on AOL there was article in today's paper that AOL has had brown-out since Monday. They also say don't worry they have it all bagged and as soon as system is back up they will send the accumulated messages. Whew, I was beginning to think everyone had deserted the list.

Poythress List, Larry Stevens, the manager of the MAISER system that hosts our list sent a note to all list owners concerning the following message.

NOTE: PREVIOUS POSTING WAS SENT BY ACCIDENT -- INCOMPLETE. THIS MESSAGE COMPLETES THE POSTING. SORRY Maynard and List Members, FYI, we currently have 33 subscribers to the Poythress list. Obviously, not all are currently posting. I know some are content to listen in for the time being. Others are allied family researchers hoping to glean some clues/help with Poythress connections. I'm interested in any and all ideas that could/would add value to the list. Several of us have been posting reference
495. Judy Speed's Speed-Poythress Connections [1]
Poythress List, There are some interesting links between the Poythress and Speed families that we still don't fully understand. The Speed family was very influential in the early history of Mecklenburg County, Virginia. The family's history is fascinating and full of exceptional accomplishments -- generation after generation. We have evidence of some sort of relationship existing between the Poythress and Speed families while in Mecklenburg County through the Dortch family connections and the naming of J

Jean and Poythress List, Re: Tri Racial Poythresses As I think I may have mentioned in an earlier note to you, I find your discoveries quite exciting and very interesting. It is hard for me to know what/how to contribute at this point -- beyond being a good listener and thinking about where the points of connection with the earlier Virginia Poythress lines arise. Certainly the given names you have posted provide an almost perfect match to those found in the earlier Poythress generations. We also know t
