I found the transcript of Jeremiah, Sr.'s will. It was in the Rowan
County Register (genealogy society newsletter, I think). It states that "the
original, unrecorded will of Jeremiah (X) Wellman Sr., written 7 Apr. 1816,
prb. 1819 [085.901.27, North Carolina State Archives], was transcribed in
RCR, Vol. 11, No. 2 (May 1996), pp. 2480-1." I believe that means the
Archives should have the original will.

Also, in this info, it says that the original Wellman family birth
records are available from the Special Collections Library, Duke University,
Box 90185, Durham, NC 27708-0185. You may be able to contact Duke to see if
you can get a copy of this info.

Jeremiah Wellman can be identified in Rowan County on Elisha's Creek
by 26 Aug 1785, Deed Book 13:908.

Jeremiah Wellman, Sr. served in the American Revolution. Margaret
Terry Tuck submitted an application for membership in the DAR on 29 July
1971. She stated that Jeremiah Wellman was a Private 5th Class, 4th Co.,
Middle Battalion, Montgomery County Militia on a list dated July 15, 1780.
She cited page 39 of the Revolutionary War Militia Lists, published by the
Maryland Historical Society in Baltimore, MD. She also cited volume 3, page
61 of the unpublished Revolutionary Records of Maryland by Margaret Hodges.
(Also, Maryland Rev. Records, Vol. IV, pg 232)





Additional: I (Dianne E. Janis) submitted an application (which was
approved) as an additional Revolutionary ancestor in the DAR, which was
approved last fall (2006), through Jeremiah, Sr.'s son, Cornelius. I
submitted Jeremiah Sr.'s Will, as proof of the generational link to his son,
Cornelius, who was previously unproven.





Lee HOGAN; 3129 S Winston Street, Aurora, CO, 80013:

Jeremiah's name is found on a deed in 1787 (Rowan County, CR, Bk 13,
p 908). He sold this same tract to Thomas Wellman, apparently his son, in
1820 (Bk 32, p 184).

NC Census of 1790 in Rowan County reflects three WELLMANs:

Jeremiah Wellman: 1 male over 16, 5 males under 16, 2 females

John Wellman: 1 male over 16, 0 males under 16, 2 females

Thomas Wellman: 1 male over 16, 1 male under 16, 1 female



John & Thomas are generally considered as sons of Jeremiah.

Marriage records for Rowan County, NC reflect:

Joseph Welman and Mary Miles, 6 August 1793

Samuel Welman and Anne McMahon, 1791

Thomas Welman and Lucinda Nichols 1789 (witness Jeremiah Wellman)

Thomas Welman and Polly Sain 1814



Jeremiah's name as a witness or bondsman establishes that Thomas was
his son. But some may doubt that Samuel was a son, since the John in the
above census may have been the father. But this John left a will in Rowan
County, NC in 1832, naming four married daughters while if he had been about
the same age as Jeremiah, or a cousin, he would hardly have lived so long.
Also, Rev. Thomas middle-named a son "Samuel" so it appears that Samuel was
a son of Jeremiah and probably Joseph was, as well. The Samuel may have
come from the maternal side. So far, the children of Jeremiah were:

1. John Wellman, b abt 1765 in Maryland, marr abt 1788 (Jinnett
(Jeanette) and settled in Rowan Co., NC (per Will)

2. Thomas Wellman, b 1766 in Maryland, moved to Kentucky

3. Samuel Wellman, b abt 1773, moved to Kentucky and later Indiana

4. Joseph Wellman, b abt 1770, in Maryland, marr in 1793 Mary
Miles.

5. Jeremiah Jr. His name appears on a deed in Rowan Co., NC in
1831 at which time his alleged father would normally have been deceased.
This Jeremiah marr in 1805 Mary Sain - Rowan Co Records. "Jerry Wellman and
wife, Mary, and Edmunt Taylor and wife, Hette, sold land on Elisha Creek to
Wiley Lain/Lane in 1831 (Bk 31, p 572) Perhaps wife Hette was a daughter
of Jeremiah Sr and this may have been a part of his estate, but it is not
proven.





Children of JEREMIAH WELLMAN and TABITHA ?? are:

i. SAMUEL4 WELLMAN, b. October 12, 1765, Montgomery
County, Maryland.

2. ii. THOMAS WELLMAN, b. January 09, 1768, Montgomery

Generation No. 2

in Montgomery County, Maryland, and died March 1859 in Oldham County,
Kentucky. He married (1) LUCINDA NICHOLS October 30, 1789 in Salisbury,
Rowan County, North Carolina. She died Abt. 1830 in Kentucky. He married
(2) LUCINDA BYERS 1835 in Oldham County, Kentucky. She died Bef. 1839 in
Kentucky. He married (3) MARTHA HARDY 1839 in Montgomery/Trimble County,

Notes for THOMAS WELLMAN:

Thomas Wellman was listed in the 1790 Rowan County census, his
listing showing one male 16 and up, one male under 16 and one female.
Sometime thereafter he moved to Kentucky. The family history describes
Thomas as "a powerful Methodist minister" who converted many people at large
open air camp meetings. He had seven children by Lucinda, born between
about 1791 and about 1808: Catherine, Mary, Jeremiah, Andrew Newton,
Elizabeth, Thomas Samuel and Richmond A.

The family history states that Thomas was 93 years old at the time
of his death in Oldham County in 1859. Four of his seven children had
already predeceased him. His will, dated 23 June 1857, was probated in the
March term, 1859, identifying his wife as "Martha" and bequeathed her
$800. Was "Martha" actually "Mary Hardy" or did Thomas have had a fourth
marriage?

ii. THOMAS SAMUEL WELLMAN, b. September 02, 1791.

iii. CATHERINE WELLMAN.

iv. MARY SARAH WELLMAN.

Jeremiah, Sr.'s Will indicates that a Cornelius Wellman, born 23 May 1777,
was the son of Jeremiah Wellman, Sr. (~1743-~1819) and his wife. Tabitha,
died 1819. Jeremiah and his wife, Tabitha died in Rowan County, NC in 1819.
This Will lists the following eight children: Samuel, Thomas, John, Joseph,
Cornelius, Jeremiah, Jr., Zakariah and Elizabeth.



Notes for ELIZABETH ??:

Elizabeth's 1820 census record shows her birth as between 1775 and 1794; her
1830 record shows birth as between 1770 and 1780. Therefore, she was born
between 1775 and 1780.



1830 Kentucky census: Oldham County, pag 260, line 23: Elizabeth Welman,
two females 15-20 years of age, one female between 50-60.

Kentucky.



Notes for MARY SARAH WELLMAN:

Mary Sarah Wellman married John Nichols in Oldham County, KY on May 22,
1827. (Oldham Co, KY Marriages 1823-50, pg 19) Mary Sarah (Sally) Wellman
may not be the child of Cornelius and Elizabeth Wellman -- but rather of
Thomas Wellman and Lucinda, his wife.

THE ZIRN/ZURN/HIRN/SAINs OF DAVIE COUNTY, NC (OLD ROWAN)
815

German immigrant Casper Zirn arrived in PhiIadaiplia on September
25, 1749. He traveled aboard the ship "Dragon" from Rotterdam, HoIland and
last from Deal, England. His name was spelled three different ways on the
three lists required at time of arrivaI in America. The "A" list by the
ship's master George Spencer showed him to be Gasper Zurn, the "B" list,
abdicating the Catholic Church, listed him as Caspar Hirn; and the "C" list
swearing allegiance to King George of England had a signature of Casper
Zirn. Many years later when signing deeds of transfer, Casper would sign his
name in German script "Casper Zirn" and the clerk in writing the deeds,
spelled "Zirn" as "Sain".

Little is known of his early life in America other than he was in
Pennsylvania for quite a while. He brought his family to North Carolina
during the l770s and settled on the east side of Dutchman's Creek in an area
known as the "Heidelberg Settlement", indicating that perhaps many of the
German setters in the area were from Heidelberg, Germany. A log church was
erected which was called Heidelberg Evangelical Litheran Church but was
better known as the "Dutch Meeting House" because of its location on
Dutchman's Creek. An old leatherbound church record book with its early
entries written in German script provides records of births, baptisms, and
attendance at Holy Communion. Many of the early German settlers were buried
in the adjoining cemetery. Frederick Zurn's birth on July 16, 1775 was the
earliest notation concerning the Sain family at Heidelburg Lutheran Church.
Many others followed.

Casper Sain (listed as Casper Zurn and Gasper Seen) received a land
grant of 600 acres in 1778 and another grant of 522 acres in I784, making a
total of 1,122 acres on Bear Creek. In 1836, Davie County was formed out of
part of Rowan County, and the area where the Sains lived was then in Davie
County and included what many years later would be the intersection of
Highways 601 and 158. Casper sold 250 acres of his land to Andrew Mock,
that property becoming known as Mocks Old Field and later Mocksville, the
present County seat of Davie County.

Casper Sain married Rosanna Mocke (?) and they had at least seven
children:

(1) John Sain was born about 1755, married Elizabeth Huff in Rowan County
and had six chldren: Catherine, Sarah, Daniel, Ellender, Elizabeth and
Wiley.

(2) George Sain was born about 1764 and married Anna Elizabeth Booe whose
parents were Jacob and Eva Kuhn Booe. Jacob Booe (Buhe) was probably a son
of Stophel (Christopher) Buhe, who is said to have arrived at Philadelphia
from Germany in 1734 at the age of 25. Stophel Buhe was among the first
white settlers in the Heidelberg section of Rowan County, between George,
Jr. and Elender. Many of these remained in Rowan County (now Davie) and
are buried at the grounds of Oak Grove Methodist Church. In 1850, before
the present building was erected, the congregation held its meetings at the
"Sain Schoolhouse".

(3) Joseph Sain was born about 1769 and married Mary Magdalena Booe who was
a sister of his brother George's wife. They had nine children: George,
William, Rosanna, Andrew, Eve, Jacob, Daniel, Nancy, and Henry. Jacob is
known to have lived in Davidson County but all others are believed to have
migrated to western Tennessee about 1832.

(4) Esther Sain was born about 1771 and on December 14, 1792 marred John
Harrowood. We have no record of their family.

(5) Fredric Sain was born July 16, 1775 in Rowan County and left after 1810.
We believe he lived many years in Fayette County, Indiana and died in
Wabash, Indiana in 1853.

(5) Daniel Sain was born March 23, 1780 in Rowan County, NC and married a
red-headed Irish girl. Mary Martha "Patty" Davis in 1800. They had eight
children: Casper, Klineberry Davis, Debitha, George Mumford, Basil Gaither,
Sarah, Nimrod, and Margarite. They moved to Warren County in middle
Tennessee about 1817 and most of the family remained there. Their farm is
now owned and operated by Oris Sain, a great-great-grandson.

(7) Marey Sain was born about 1782 and married Jeremiah Wellman on November
16, 1805. They had nine children: Elizabeth, Sarah, Mehetable, Edith,
Martha, Jeremiah, Nathan, Cepander, and Margaret.
