501. Jean Spille's post of Darlene Wilson on Melungeon [1]
Poythress List and Jean, Jean, thanks for sharing the wonderful analysis by Darlene Wilson from UK. I think what we are starting to see is a growing focus in genealogical research toward broader social-historical perspectives. This certainly is my main interest. The significance of our family histories goes well beyond deed books, wills, marriage and immigration records. I think our list is doing exactly what we wanted by giving us an opportunity to learn from one another and to broaden our understa

Bud, Welcome to the List, and glad to hear the cataract surgery went so well. Yes, in answer to your question, I did get the first message as well as the second message.

504. 4/6 re George W. POYTHRESS(es?) [1]
Re Craig's message about George W. Poythress in the Confederate Army: I pulled both of the compiled Confederate Army service records, and the records (I think) are indeed for the same guy, mainly because both show enlistment at the same place on the same day by the same captain, plus their compiled service jackets are cross-referenced to one another. Naming boys after "George Washington" became very popular at one point, so it might not be too unusual that there happened to be 2 George W[ashington] Poythr

Jean Spille: check out today's (Apr. 14) Wall Street Journal. On page B1 is what appeared to me to be excellent article on Melungeons. No doubt you know a lot of it but to this uniniatiated one the article seemed to me to be exceptionally well done and informative.

510. Re: Poythress Spelling Variants [1]
I believe that we have to deal with the issue that there are two kinds of people in the world. Those that are Poythresses and know how to spell their own name and others who have the pleasure of writing the name in records and don't have the pleasure of knowing how to spell the name and would rather guess than ask. I missed finding my Benjamin Poythress for years in the 1850 census because it was spelled PORTESS. Of course in the 1850 Personnal Property it was spelled properly. Craig At 11:26 PM 4/11/97

514. Re: Poythress/Portis/Isle of Wight [1]
Maynard, Sorry I was confused about your reference to Gwathmey, because I had only mentioned it because of the odd sound and aptness to misspelling Gwathmey/Gwaltney/Gaffney. I finally read this closely. Is this excerpt from the Birmingham, ALABAMA public Library? That is my town of origin and I go back there quite a bit. I noticed that several of my family names (although NOT Ransom) are in that excerpt: Jordan, for instance. The time period for Thomas and Edward indicate that I should look more close
515. VKRatliff [1]
Al et al re the mystic comments on :VKRatliff. As a name, it attracts just about as many curious ones as Poythress. As a counter-revolutionary English major I have long held the view that Faulkner is the only thing worth reading that wasn't written with a feather. I'm sure others exist who have made 3 round trips through Uncle Billy but I don't know any of them. Anyway, I was brain dead from an afternoon in the Snopes trilogy when I signed on to AOL. The first thing that popped into my head when they wo

Poythress List, There are so many great posts today! 1. Craig Scott gives us a possible new immigrant. As I think about it, would the entry read like this if James Poythress was simply returning from a visit to London? I think not, but a confirmation would be helpful. 2. Randy Jones offers to help with a Web Page project. Randy, I'm very interested in your offer, but need to get my ducks in a row before I float a proposal. Won't be long. This is very kind of you! Thanks. 3. Jean Spille is reall

BARBARA AND CHARLES; On your trip, please keep your eyes open for anyone named KIZIAH (it's biblical, by the way, one of Job's daughters) Porthress's parents. ALSO the two misplaced RANSOM boys: ROBERT AND BENJAMIN C (maybe for Clevers) Portress or whatever. born in the 1780's. Kiziah was probably their aunt. THANK YOU. You never know. The Ransoms lived in Murphreesboro, Tn., where your Poythress fought in the Revolution and Richard Payne Ransom was also in that battle, I believe. Near in PROXIMITY if n
521. Re: Craig's Requested Citation [1]
Craig, Sorry I was not online last night to see your question re the Jane Pierce vs Jane Poythress question. Last year, I finally put a Post-It flag sticking up out of the VGS issue in question, so I could spot the proper issue more readily. The article seems very well thought-out & well documented. It is: Vol. 23, no. 3 (August 1985) issue of __Magazine of Virginia Genealogy__, article entitled "The Descendants of Pocahontas: An Unclosed Case" by Elizabeth Vann Moore and Richard Slatten, on pp. 3-16.
522. Portuguese, etc. [1]
I don't think anybody is dodging you, Jane....I just think you got us dumbfounded. With a boatload of Poythress information that says England (or at least UK) folks spread all over the South after a start in Virginia vs. slightly more than a couple of mentions and a couple of speculations on a Portuguese origin beginning a century later.....that one is hard to get a handle on. Maybe the way to have the list sink their teeth into it is to build a proposition in a single post and hang it out there for evalu

Julia, you have made my day! You actually FOUND two of the spellings I had on MY Portis, etc Poythress family who moved from NC to Tennessee. I THOUGHT it was the Tennesseans who did it, but apparently not. Do you have any Benjamin C (or Clevers) or a Robert P....., or a Kiziah or Kesiah or Kissie Portis, etc ....? 1763-1841 are her dates. She was married to Richard Payne Ransom in Halifax VA or NC?? But I have had several indications that she came from NC. Benjamin and Robert are a generation younger tha
524. Re: re Pocahontas, Rolfe, et al. [1]
Al.... In the "revised" or new version which omits Jane Poythress in favor of a marriage of Thomas directly to Ann Bolling it looked to me a first glance that the authors had merely leap-frogged Jane. On further thought, it strikes me that in this version all those millions of Pocahontas decendents via a male Bolling line have really got a problem. Other than the fact that Pocahontas attracts us a lot of customers (and its doubtful if most of them are customers we particularly want) she has no impact on
525. GA Land Lotteries [1]
Linda Starr: I guess I didn't make myself very clear in my post of information on these lotteries. I see more clearly now the problem I was looking at few years ago in accumulating data on Poythress participation in the lotters. To my knowledge (I hope I'm wrong) there is/was no state-wide alpha listing of participants. The listings were alpha by counties. I know Georgia didn't have all 159 present day counties back then but they still had a bunch...enough to make it look like a lifetime project. In re
