Do NOT KNOW if this is the correct family Taken from History of Mclean Co Illinois
Hon. John L. Routt.

John L. Routt was born April 25, 1827, in Eddyville, the
county seat of Lyon County, Kentucky. While he was an in-
fant, his father, who was a farmer, died, leaving Mrs. Routt with

m'lean county. 859

four children, in rather straightened circumstances. Mrs, Routt
moved to Trigg County, Kentucky, where she lived a widow until
1834, when she was again married. In 1840 John Routt Avas ap-
prenticed to his cousin, Samuel B. Haggard, of Bloomington,
Illinois, to learn the carpenter's trade. The lad applied himself
industriously to his trade for two years and a half. But at this
time Mr. Haggard wished to become a farmer, and young Routt
Avas left free to work on his own account. He was very success-
ful, and soon received the highest wages paid, which were
seventy-five cents per da}^, and board himself. He worked for
Mr. O. Covel in building a mill, for carding and cloth dressing.
The latter became interested in the lad and induced him to learn
the carding and cloth-dressing business. Mr. Covel's establish-
ment consisted of a grist mill, a saw mill and complete cloth
dressing machinery. At the end of one jesir Routt could, in the
absence of the proprietors, take charge of the establishment in
all its details. The mill was in a great measure the center of
local, political and social interest, and young Routt soon became
familiar with the ways of the world. But he soon saw the
necessity of an education. He went to school during three
months in the year, and in addition to this employed all his leis-
ure time in study. At the age of nineteen he married Hester
A. Woodson, one of the noblest and gentlest of women, who
died two years since. The stock of worldly goods belonging to
these juvenile "old folks" consisted of twenty dollars in money
and a few clothes suited to their station. They married because
they thought themselves suited to each other, an old fashioned
reason somewhat fallen into disuse. Mr. Covel's mill was de-
stroyed by fire, and Routt returned to his trade as carpenter and
machine worker. In 1854 he was elected alderman of Bloom-
ington. About this time he borrowed twenty-five dollars from
his friend, Lyman Ferre, and purchased a quarter of a block of
ground and built on it a small house. He tried the life of a
farmer for a short time, but returned to his trade. He took a
lively interest in politics, was originally a Whig, but upon a re-
arrangement of parties in 1856, became a Republican, and has
remained so ever since.

In 1856 Mr. Routt had accumulated a little money, and in
common with many others began to speculate in Western lands.


In 1856 and '57 the great financial crash came. But a more
serious disaster resulted to Mr. Routt. He had purchased land
on the bank of the Missouri River, but the shifting current
changed its course and all of Mr. Routt's domain became the
bed of the river, and his rich soil was washed away to be added
to the accretions at the mouth of the Mississippi.

In 1858, when township organization was effected in McLean
County, Mr, Routt was elected collector, and as the office was
entirely new, the work required much skill. He was re-elected
without opposition. In 1860, Mr. Routt thought of being a can-
didate for sheriff, and while he was hesitating, it came to his
knowledge, that one of his opponents had said : " It would be
folly for little Routt to run," and he immediately determined to
make the canvass. He was materially assisted by William Mc-
Cullough, who was candidate for circuit clerk. The convention
met, and while it was in session, Judge Davis, then circuit judge,
and now associate justice of the United States supreme court, said
to Routt in his peculiar way : " Look here, John, McCullougli
tells me that you are going to get this nomination. How is it,
John ? You are going to get it, ain't you ? Of course you are
going to get it; McCullough says so and that is enough." Mr.
Rontt was nominated on the second ballot and elected.

In 1862, when the second call for volunteers was made, John
Routt decided to go to the war. He assisted in recruiting and
organizing the Ninety-fourth Illinois, and was chosen captain by
acclamation. Judge Davis presided at the organization of the
company in the old Phoenix Hall, and it was made the color com-
pany of the j^inety-fourth. Captain Routt left the sheriff's office
in charge of a deputy, and went to the war. In the fall of 1862,
the regiment made the most wonderful march on record, from
Wilson's Creek battle-ground to the battle-ground of Prairie
Grove, a distance of one hundred andtwent}^ miles, in a little more
than three days. There the army of General Herron, to which
the regiment belonged, fought the battle of Prairie Grove, one
of the sharpest contests of the war. . After this. Captain Routt
and many others were sent home to recruit soldiers for the regi-
ments. In the spring of 1863, he went back to the army. In the
meantime, Colonel W. W. Orme had been made a brigadier
general for his services at the battle of Praire Grove, and the

m'lean county. 861

army went into camp at Lake Spring. Here Captain Routt was
detailed to act as quartermaster, and held the position until after
the capitulation of Yicksburg. After this he was commissioned
as quartermaster, and served as chief quartermaster in the army
of the Rio Grande, commanded by General Herron. After the
disastrous Red River expedition of General Banks, Colonel Routt
was assigned as post quartermaster at Baton Rouge, and continued
in this position until he left the army in 1865. On arriving home
he was made treasurer of McLean County, and immediately began
the payment of the county bonds and interest as they became
due, and in a short time they rose to par in the market and re-
mained so. At the expiration of two years he was nominated by
a decided majority and re-elected.

At the commencement of President Grant's administration,
General Giles A. Smith, of Bloomington, was appointed second
assistant postmaster general, and Colonel Routt was selected as
chief clerk of this bureau, but did not accept the position until
his term of office as treasurer had expired. He filled the place
with credit until he was appointed U. S. Marshal for the southern
district of Illinois. The duties of the office during that year
were especially difficult as the census Avas then taken. This work
Avas one of great difficulty, and required the best judgment; but
his returns were accurately and speedily made out, and he re-
ceived a well merited compliment from the Commissioner of the
census. In the fall of 1871, General Giles A. Smith was obliged
to resign his position on account of failing health, and Postmaster
General Cresswell immediately selected Colonel Routt as Smith's
successor. Col. Routt resigned his office as marshal', and entered
upon the duties of his office as second assistant postmaster gene-
ral, October 17, 1871. To his office belongs the charge of all the
mails throughout the country, and he has performed his duties
Avith marked ability. He comes in immediate contact with all
the great corporations, and in dealing with them he is firm and
decided. When the railroads threatened to throw off the mails,
if the former did not receive increased compensation. Col. Routt
was determined that the postffice department should not be in-
timidated by these giant monopolies.

Col. John L. Routt tells the following anecdote of our citizen^
John E. McClun. He says that he recently met a Col. McCleave


in his office in Washington City, who, as soon as he learned that
Col. Routt was from Bloomington, Illinois, enquired after his
former schoolmate, John E. McClun, saying that they had been
boys together, and without any further ado related to him the
following anecdote. He said : " Young John was often sent to
Winchester market by his energetic and excellent mother, with
the products of her dairy, garden and poultry-yard, and he opened
out his butter, eggs, chickens, etc., generally with fine success,
and became very expert in selling. One day, however, the young
marketer was at his wit's end, for among other articles in his
stock was a pair of dressed geese, which remained on his hand
long after everything else was disposed of. At length, when he
almost despaired of getting rid of this remnant of his cargo^ — for
the geese were evidently old and tough — an old lady offered him
a certain price for one of them; but John, after making her a
polite bow, and thanking her for the ofier, assured her that he
was opposed upon principle to selling one without the other, for,
said he, with seeming earnestness : ' My dear madam, these poor
old geese have been united together in life in the most amicable
relationship for twenty years, and it would be sad to part them
now.' This shrewd statement — which linked a financial effect
with a humanitarian thought — had the desired result on the old
lady, for she at once bought both geese ; but how much boiling
and roasting she afterwards bestowed upon the venerable pair,
John never learned."

Col. Routt, after having related this incident to me, added, in
a humorous way : " As Judge McClun for many years sold goods
in Bloomington, in early times, I have no doubt many old set-
tlers here could be found to testify that he was as successful in
many instances in disposing of ancient articles of merchandize
in McLean County, as he was in the sale of the tough old geese
at Winchester."

In personal appearance Col. Routt is slightly below the me-
dium height, stoutly built, has a large, well-shaped head with
prominent forehead, black hair, dark hazel eyes, and strongly
marked features. He is courteous and affable, though firm and
decided, and has a pleasing address, which wins him friends
wherever he goes. His political common sense enables him to
grasp a subject and comprehend it at once in all its bearings, and

m'lean county. 863

his decisions always promptly made, are, nevertheless, more than
usually safe and correct. He reads human nature with remark-
able accuracy, and seldom has occasion to revise his first estimates
of character. He is ever ready to lend a helping hand to the
worthy and deserving, but has a thorough contempt for all pre-
tenders and shams, whether the shams be men or measures.
There is not in Illinois, perhaps, among our active politicians, a
more outspoken man or sincere friend, than John L. Routt.

Jarrell (Pope?), Jillian (Lelion) (I1075)
An active, busy life, guided by high and honorable principles, made Robert Herren a respected citizen in every community in which he lived. His life record covered the intervening period between the 10th of April, 1824, when he first opened his eyes to the light of day in Hull, England, and July 27, 1914, when his eyelids were closed in death in Macksburg, Iowa. He was the only son of John and Harriet (Wilds) Herren, who in the year 1839 came with their family to the new world, settling at Waterville, Vermont, where the father soon became actively engaged in various manufacturing enterprises.

The son followed in his footsteps and early became interested in manufacturing, displaying such adaptability and industry in that connection that when he was in his twentieth year he was admitted to a partnership by his father. He gradually worked his way upward in business relations but soon after the financial crisis of 1857 a disastrous fire totally destroyed the woolen factory of which he was the proprietor and swept away the earnings of his first industrial experience. Business conditions resulting from the wide-spread financial panic of that year made it difficult for him to again engage in that line of business. Disposing of other properties which he held, he scrupulously paid every claim against him to the last dollar and with characteristic energy and determination once more started out in business life. He was now empty-handed but he possessed indispensable qualities of success-industry, determination and energy. He turned his face toward California and, making his way to the Sacramento valley, there engaged in buying and shipping wool. He had hardly started in the new enterprise when a flood swept down upon the valley, carrying away much of the season's clip and thus wrecking his last business venture. Still undaunted, he once more started out empty-handed and engaged in prospecting for the precious metal, which was known to be in the mountains of the Pacific slope. For a few years he continued to engage in prospecting, meeting sometimes with success and again with failure, but the hold which the east had upon him was very strong and he determined to return to that part of the country.

While upon the return trip Mr. Herren formed the acquaintance of Messrs. Munger and White, woolen manufacturers of Winterset, Iowa, and entered into business relations with them as manager of their factory, his previous experience as a woolen manufacturer now coming into good play. Returning to Vermont for his family, he left New England in the spring of 1869 and thereafter until his death maintained his abode in Madison county, Iowa. It was not long before the result of his industry was manifest in the business with which he became connected, and the mill was in successful operation. For seven years Mr. Herren continued his relations with John D. White and Nelson W. Munger, two of the worthy and valued pioneer settlers of Madison county, their activities contributing in substantial measure to its upbuilding.

In 1876, when fifty-two years of age, Mr. Herren withdrew from active connection with manufacturing interests and took up his abode upon a tract of land in Grand River township, where he began farming. He had previously had no experience along agricultural lines but possessed sound business judgment, natural sagacity and indefatigable industry and therefore it was not difficult for him to win success in his new line of work. For about thirty years he followed farming and then retired from business in 1905, establishing his home in Macksburg, where he lived until his death, which occurred about nine years later.

On the 25th of October, 1845, Mr. Herren was united in marriage to Miss Harriet Strew and to them were born five children, of whom three are yet living: John L., a resident of Perry, Iowa; Robert M., who makes his home at Enid, Oklahoma; and Harriet W. Kelso, of Winterset, Iowa. On the 1st of November, 1854, Mr. Herren wedded Sophia Hatch and they became the parents of six children, of whom four survive: Mrs. Addie S. St. John, of Des Moines; Fred C., living in Macksburg; Clarence M., who makes his home at La Junta, Colorado; and Mrs. Belle Shell, who was with her father throughout his last illness. On the 23d of December, 1874, at Winterset, Iowa, Mr. Herren wedded Anna (Church) Parkins, who survives him, and to them were born two daughters: Mrs. Glenn V. Mayer, of Collins, Montana; and Mrs. Daisy Dell Ross, of Chin province of Alberta, Canada.

Mr. Herren was a member of the Presbyterian church of Winterset from 1871 until his demise and for many years he was also an exemplary representative of the Masonic lodge. He voted the democratic ticket but he never sought or held public office, preferring always to concentrate his energies upon his business affairs, which, carefully directed, brought to him a substantial measure of success. He never sought to figure prominently in any public connection but the sterling traits of his character were recognized by all and as a man and citizen he enjoyed the high regard and goodwill of those with whom he came in contact.

Herren, Robert Morris (I4834)
Appears to be the only son who left Barren Co as a young man for a few years in the late 1820’s and early 1830’s. He may have gone to Missouri “to have a look” as some of the Chapan cousins were treking westward by then. Bird returned to Barren Co and on July 21 1834 married Mary (Polly) Brown, aged 16 years. By 1850 they have 2 daughter and 3 sons. Although the tract of land that Bird bought from his siblings uupon his fathers death was the “Chapman Far,”, Bird never seemed to do very well. His wife died shortly after 1850 and he and the children moved north to Three Springs in Hart Co, where he is listed as a Farm Laborer.Bought 165 acres of his fathers land from his brothers and sisters called “Sinking Branch”. This was probably the farm where their parents had lived.

Former Johnson County Sheriff Was 64 Years Old.

Ernest G. Carroll, 64 years old, 5504 Chadwich road, Johnson County, Kansas, former sheriff at Olathe, Kas., died last night at the Providence hospital, Kansas City, Kansas.

Born in Atchison, Kas., August 11, 1879, Carroll moved to Olathe with his family in his childhood. He was sheriff of Johnson County more than thirteen years, and held office at the time of the lynching of Bert Dudley in September, 1916.

The lynching occurred after a mob of 150 masked men overpowered Sheriff Carroll and battered in the door of the Olathe Jail. Carroll's wife, Mrs. Margaret Carroll, aided her husband in standing off the mob by throwing the keys to the jail out of the window and calling the fire department.

Dudley had been convicted of the murder of Mr.and Mrs. Henry Muller of Stilwell, Kas. He was to have been sentenced by Judge J. O. Rankin of Paola, Kas., the following day.

Carroll was automatically suspended following the incident, but was reinstated by Gov. Arthur Capper four days later.

In November, 1933, Carroll was appointed a special agent in the intelligence unit of the revenue service in Kansas. For the last ten years he has been serving in the same capacity for the Treasury department here. He was a thirty-second degree Mason and a Shriner.

Besides his wife he leaves five brothers, Ross Carroll, with the navy in the Pacific; Joseph Carroll, with the armed forces, Charles Carroll and C. W. Carroll, both of Los Angeles, and Bert Carroll, Boulder, Colo; a sister, Mrs. Charles Welton, Los Angeles; a nephew, W. M. Coard, 8018 Jarboe street, and a niece, Mrs. L. J. Wilkin, Comanche, Tex.

It was not till 1822 that the territory now known as McLean County possessed a single white inhabitant; and when, in that year, the families of .John Hendrix ami John W. Dawson made a selection of sites for homes, they were the first permanent settlers in the county, and were also the first in Bloomington Township, of which we now propose to give an historical sketch.


John Hendrix.

John Hendrix was born December 9, 1790, in Virginia. His
parents were Susannah and William Hendrix. The Hendrix
family moved to Champaign County, Ohio, and there John
Hendrix married Jane Britton, in about the year 1813 or 1814.

In the fall of 1821 John Hendrix and John W. Dawson came
with their families to Sangamon County, Illinois, where they
arrived about Christmas time, and there remained during the
winter. In April, 1822, the Hendrix family came to what is
now called Blooming Grove. Mr. Dawson came with them, but
left his family in Sangamon County. An old man named Segar
was also with the company. Mr. Hendrix settled on the place
now owned by Oliver II. P. Orendortf. This was the first set-
tlement made within the limits of the present McLean County-.


Mr. Hendrix was therefore the first white settler with a family,
and Mrs. Hendrix was the first white woman, who set foot upon
this soil. Mr. Segar also made a claim and commenced work
upon a place which he sold to "William Orendorfl:'. Mr. Dawson
brought his family shortly afterwards and settled where Mr. Cox
now lives. This was just north of Segar's, afterwards Oren-
dorff's claim. The Hendrix and Dawson families lived about
one mile apart, and visited each other every Sunday. Indeed
they seemed two branches of one family. They could see no
one else and they formed a world for themselves. The Hendrix
family was very religious. Mr. Hendrix was a member of the
Methodist Church and his house was for many years a preach-
ing place for that denomination. The first sermon preached in
what is now McLean County was delivered in 1823, in Mr. Hen-
drix's house, by James Stringfield from Kentucky, an uncle to
Squire A. M. Stringfield of Randolph's Grove. Mr. Hendrix
was for many years previous to his death a class-leader in the
church. He was an industrious man and accumulated enough
property to enable him to live in comfort. He never became
wealthy, for he died before the land became valuable. Mr.
Hendrix had eight children, of whom five lived to be grown.
They are :

Nathan Evans Hendrix, who now lives in Monroe County,

William Hendrix, who lives in Placerville, Eldorado County,
California. He has been there since 1850.

Elizabeth, wife of Hiram Harbert, who died in 1842.

•John Britton Lewis Hendrix, who lives in Monroe County,

Sarah Lovina Sales Hendrix, now Mrs. Orendorfl\, lives at
Blooming Grove.

Mr. Hendrix was rather above the medium stature and
weighed perhaps one hundred and sixty pounds. His hair was
rather dark and his eyes blue. He was very quiet in his man-
ner, was always ready to do a favor, indeed always glad to do
so. He died on the farm where he made his early settlement
and was buried there.

BENJAMIN D. LUCAS, was born in 1849, about two miles south of Bloomington; in 1856, his parents moved to the city, and a short time after, his mother died; after moving to town, he attended school at the old yellow schoolhouse, iu the south part of town, until October, 1860, raen his father, Richmond Lucas, died, and he went to Indiana, and went to school in the win-
er-time and worked on a farm during the summer ; after remaining there three years, he went to Shelbyville, 111., and worked in a store, while not at school, about eight months; then he returned to Indiana, and after remaining there a few months, went to New York, and went to school in the winter and worked on a farm in the summer-time during three years; in 1866, he returned to Illinois, and again worked on a farm about four months, after which he taught school in the north part of ihe State. He then returned to Bloomington and entered the law othce of Bloomfield & Fifer, and remained with them until they dissolved, after which he remained with Gen. Bloomfield until he was admitted to practice, in 1873; he then went into partnership with Air. Bloomfield and remained nearly two years, when they dissolved; since 'Jen he has been alone. In the spring of 1876, he was appointed City Attorney by ex-AIayor steere, which office he held until the expiration of the term. Air. Lucas is certainly one of the TM>S( persistently studious lawyers at the McLean County bar: he is sincere and earnest in
ve,fecl h y l l i s Professional associates ; if any exception can be taken to Mr. Lucas as a law- L";u!'e„writer considers that it is found in his modesty, which, for a man of his profession, is
truthfully excessive.

Oliver Hazard Perry Orendorff.

Oliver H. P. Orendorff" was born May 16, 1822, in Washington
County, Illinois. When he was about one year old his father
came to that part of Fayette County, which now forms the coun-
ty of McLean, and settled at Blooming Grove. This was on the
second of May, 1823. Mr. O. H. P. Orendorff" has lived here
€ver since. The first school he attended was kept by William
H. Hodge. Books were then scarce in the West and the one
Oliver studied was an old fashioned almanac. He was rather a
precocious youth and his memory goes back to an early period.
He remembers when David Cox came to the country, which was
in September, 1826. Mr. Orendorff went to school to Mr. Hodge,
when it was kept about a mile distant. He was then very small,
and at one time, when the weather was cold, he would have been
frozen to death, had he not been dragged to the school-house by
his sister and Maria Dawson.

The great hurricane, which swept through Blooming Grove
came on the nineteenth of June, 1827. Although the house,
where the Orendorffs lived, was not in the immediate track of
the hurricane, it blew there fearfully. While it was coming up
even the beasts of the field understood the danger. The Oren-
dorff" boys, who were at home alone, had just driven up the
cattle, and when the dumb creatures saw the coming storm they
took refuge in a new and unoccupied log house. The hurricane
unroofed the houses of William Evans and William Walker
although they were not in its immediate track. It passed through
the timber and piled up the trees in some places twenty feet
high. I^othing in the forest could stand before it. The Vrees
were broken and twisted and torn. About nineteen days after-
wards as Mr. William Orendorff' and some others were looking
at the wreck of the scattered timber, they found a hog pinned
fast to the ground by the limb of a tree and much bruised and
unable to move. The logs were cut and it was released from
confinement and afterwards made a fine porker. The width ot
the hurricane was about half a mile and its length no one knows.


Its direction was almost due east. It passed through Blooming
Grove at about twilight in the evening.

During the winter of the deep snow Mr. Orendorff went to
school to Cheney Thomas through the timber. After the heavy
snow fell a road' was broken and the little Orendorffs by passing
back and forth kept the road clear. But outside of the timber
no road remained broken longer than a few hours, as the snow
drifted over it. The Orendorlf family suffered very little during
this winter, but many families were so distressed with the cold
and lack of corn that they allowed their cattle to take care
of themselves. The corn crop during the season previous was
very tine, but the season following was so cold and short by
reason of the length of time required to melt away the deep
snow, that very little corn came to maturity. The suftering
caused by the diificulty of obtaining food was sometimes ex-
treme. A man named Rook, who lived on Rook's Creek about
twenty miles north of Lexington, became short of provisions,
and it seemed that his family must starve. He made himself
some snow shoes, took a hand sled and walked twenty miles to
where Lexington now is, and there found corn which he took
home to his starving family.

Mr. Orendorff has a lively recollection of the Indians, and
particularly of two squaws, Aunt Peggy and Aunt l^Tancy.
These squaws were pretty well educated, and it is said that, while
listening to a backwoods preacher, they amused themselves by
criticising his grammatical blunders. They often came to the
house of Mrs. Orendorff (mother of Oliver) and helped her wash
and do her work. They were particularly pleased with children,
and greatly admired every likely looking white papoose. They
took a great fancy to Oliver, and wished to bring him up and
make an Indian chief of him.

Mrs. Orendorff' died on the 9th of ISTovember, 1831, and this
sad event affected Oliver very deeply.

Oliver Orendorff" had a somewhat adventurous disposition.
When he was very young he went with his brother James with
a six horse team to St. Louis for a load of goods for Greenberry
Larison. They passed through Springfield, which was then a
village of log huts. In 1834 he went Avith a party of drovers to
White Oak Springs, near Galena, with a lot of hogs. Tliey

m'lean county. 165

crossed Rock Riv^er at Dixon's Ferry, and there Mr. Orendortt"
saw old Father Dixon, then the only white inhabitant at that
point. At Kellogg's Grove, where during the Black Hawk war
Colonel Dement had fought the Indians with his Spy Battalion,
he saw the bones of horses and a human skull. Although Oli-
ver was only twelve years of age, he was taken along with these
drovers for something besides amusement ; it was his business to
take care of a team. He was then a "sassy" little driver, but
hardy and tough. He had no remarkable adventure on the way.
He often went to Chicago, was once seventeen days on his jour-
ney, and received only fifty cents a bushel for his wheat. Of
course he always camped out on these expeditions.

During the sudden change in the weather in December,
1836, Oliver OrendorfF was at school. The ground was covered
with slush and water, and young Benjamin Cox made a wish
that the weather would turn cold, and freeze over the creek. It
did turn cold, so cold that many of the scholars could not go
home ; the little Orendorffs were "weather-bound," and staid over
night at William Michael's. The following morning Oliver went
home on horseback, and while crossing a creek his horse broke
through the ice at a riffle and at the same time went under a low
hanging limb of a tree which brushed Oliver from the horse's
back. Unfortunately he got his boot full of water, but hemount-
ed his horse and rode home, a half a mile distant, on the
keen run. When he arrived there his boot was frozen fast to
his foot, and he had great difiiculty in pulling it off.

During the famous wet season of 1844, Mr. Orendorff moved
the goods and stock of an aunt of his to Iowa. He started on
the 9th of May, walked the whole distance and with his cousin
drove twentj^head of cattle. They waded and swam the sloughs
and creeks, and crossed the Illinois River by wading, ferrying
and swimming. The horses attached to their wagon went
through with much kicking, and scratching, but came out safe
at last. He returned home by the fourth of June, and says that
daring all the time he was gone his clothes were never once en-
tirely dry. He helped his uncle plant corn before he started,
and on his return helped his father plant corn, as the ground had
been difficult to plow on account of the wet.

The first camp-meeting Mr. OrendorfiP ever attended was held


on the place Avhere he now lives. The Rev. Peter Cartwright
was present, and preached in his most interesting and humorous-

Mr. Orendorff married, April 1, 1847, Sarah Levina Hendrix^
the daughter of John and Jane Hendrix, the first settlers within
the limits of the present McLean County. The marriage was
celebrated at the home of Mrs. Jane Hendrix, near where Mr.
Orendorff now lives. They have had two children, one daugh-
ter and one son, both of whom are now living. They are :

Mr. Orendorff is five feet and ten and one-half inches high,
is not heavily built, seems to enjoy a fair degree of health, and
appears pretty muscular and well developed. He is very posi-
tive in his opinions, is a man of good sense, is very kind and
sociable and ready to do a favor, thinks a great deal of old
times and the old settlers, and is himself one of the best of
them. He works hard, is careful and thrifty, and is blessed
with a fair portion of the world's goods.

Found in history of McLean co onlineMr. Orendorff" was married four times. He first married in
Kentucky in about the year 1811 Miss Sally Nichols. By this
marriage he had three children, James, Elizabeth and William.
She died not long afterwards. He next married in Illinois
Miss Lovina Sayles, in about the year 1819, and by this mar-
riage had five children, two boys and three girls. They were

m'lean county. 151

Sarah, Oliver, Lewis, Mary J. and Nancy. His wife Lovina died
November 9, 1831. In 1834 he married Miss Susan Ogden,
and by this marriage had two children, Christopher and Mar-
garet. She died not long afterwards. On his sixty-second
birth-day Mr. OrendorfF married Miss Naomi Abel and by this
marriage had four children, Francis, Orrin, Emma and William.
Four of his children are now living in McLean County. James
K Orendorff, Oliver H. P. OrendorfF and John Lewis Orendorff
live at or near Blooming Grove. Christopher Orendorff lives
near Cheney's Grove.

Mr. Orendorff was a man of great popularity and had many
friends. He took great pleasure in entertaining everyone who
came to his house. He loved to see their friendly faces and
probably thought that the most perfect happiness consisted in
giving the people of the earth a good dinner and enjoying
their smiles and friendly greetings. He had indeed a generous
disposition, too generous for his own good. He was always
ready to help and assist. This disposition made him a man of
great popularity and influence. He became, not long before
his death, a member of the Methodist church; he had pre-
viously inclined to universalism. He died May 12, 1869, in the
seventy-eighth year of his age.

Thomas Orendorff and John Berry Orendorff.

Thomas Orendorff was born August 14, 1800, in Spartan-
burg, South Carolina. His father's name was Christopher
Orendorff and his mother's, before her marriage, was Elizabeth
Phillips. His father was of German descent, and his mother
was American. His father had a family of twelve children, all
of whom grew to be men and women. The Orendorff family
left Spartanburg before Thomas was seven years old ; neverthe-
less he remembers much of the place, and particularly calls to
mindafireinthethickly wooded pine forest. This fire was grander
than any prairie fire he has ever seen in the West. Impressions
made upon children are sometimes very lasting. Mr. Oren-
dorff remembers a preacher by the name of Golightly, who
did indeed go lightly upon his religion, for he became very
worldly minded. Mr. Orendorff remembers very well the ne-


groes of South Carolina, who were very kindly treated and lived
in comfortable quarters.

In about the year 1807 the Orendorff family moved west of
the Cumberland Mountains, to Franklin County, Tennessee.
The land there was owned principally by speculators, and had
been surveyed in large tracts, so the Orendorff family took a
new departure, and in 1811 came to Kentucky. The country was
then very wild. He remembers that two little boys were lost in
the mountains, one a white and one a negro, and were not found
until nearly starved to death. Religious excitement sometimes
became very high in Kentucky, and at revivals the most out-
rageous antics would be performed. People would dance and
jerk and run and fall on the floor.

It was in the year 1811 that the earthquake of New Madrid
occurred and the shocks were plainly felt in Kentucky. They
felt the earth shake and heard noises similar to distant thunder.
Mr. Orendorflf afterwards saw many chimneys, which had been
shaken down on the American bottom opposite St. Louis, but
the earthquake did no particular damage in Kentucky. After
raising one crop in Christian County, the Orendorff family
moved to Henderson County, Kentucky, near the site of the
present town of Hendersonville, and remained there until the
spring of 1817, when they came to Illinois. They stayed one
year on the Little Wabash, and in the spring of 1818 came to
St. Clair, east of Belleville. In the spring of 1819 Thomas
Orendorft" went to Sangamon County, and the family followed
in the fall. It was then called the Saint Gamy country, but the
words were afterwards united by common usage and became
Sangamon. Their occupation was fighting mosquitoes, breaking
prairie, splitting rails, &c. At that time very few settlers had
come to Sangamon County; but during the year 1820 they came
in very fast. That part of the country was then very wet, and
Thomas Orendorff determined at once to find a better loca-
tion. In 1823 he and his brother William mounted their horses
and came to Blooming Grove, then called Keg Grove, where
they found two settlers, Dawson and Hendrix. They looked
over the country for some time, and at last Thomas found a spot
at Blooming Grove that suited him, and said : "There's my
claim," and took it. This is the place now owned by Stephen

m'lean county. 153

Houghton. William Orendorff bought a claim for fifty dollars
in the southeast of Blooming Grove and settled there. Thomas
Orendorff returned twice to Sangamon County, and the last
time brought the family of William Orendorff from there to
Blooming Grove, where they arrived on the second of May,

When Thomas and William Orendorfl" settled in McLean
County the old chief of the Kickapoos came with Machina (af-
terwards their chief) and ordered them to leave. But the old
chief spoke English in such a poor manner that Thomas Oren-
dorff told him to keep still and let Machina talk. Then Machina
drew himself up and said in his heavy voice : "Too much come
back, white man. T'other side Sangamon." Mr. Orendorff told
Machina that the latter had sold the land to the whites ; but
Machina denied it, and the discussion waxed warm, and the
chiefs went away feeling very much insulted. Mr. Orendorffs
friends considered his life very much in danger, and he was
advised to leave the country by Judge Latham, the Indian
agent, but he attended to his business and was not molested. At
one time an Lidian, called Turkey, came to Mr. Orendorff and
gave him warning that Machina would kill him ; but no attempt
was made to put such a threat into execution.

elected as a Vestryman for St. James Parish, Goochland virginia 28 Mar 1785

Old warriors, red and white, retired after the war to their home farms. At Goochland County, Virginia, Abraham Poore died in 1886 at age 65. His 10 children would all migrate westward to new regions. His brother, Thomas Poore, died two years later in 1788 at age 67. His 7 children also moved west. Witnessing his will at Goochland were Thomas Poor and David Powers. The middle brother, Robert Poore, born in 1723, lived the longest. He lived in Goochland County and was married to Judith Walker. He died in 1797 at the age of 74; as for children, I assume that there were many, but I do not know who they were.  We should keep his children in mind, for the name of another Robert Poore springs up later on. It would be a supposition that he had a son named Robert. His brother Abraham also had a son with that name and all seem to have migrated to Woodford County, Kentucky.
Perhaps one of Robert Poore’s sons became the father of Solomon Poore (1797-), born in Botetourt County. Solomon married Elizabeth Wood in 1833 when he was 35 years old. Perhaps she was his second wife. They had 5 known children: Sarah Ann Virginia Poore (1834-1909), James Poore (1839-), George Poore (1841-), Russia Poore (1847-) and Sally Poore (1848-).

The ‘Eastern’ Poores and Powers of the York, James and Chowanoke settlements had moved closer to the western boundaries of the Tidewater by 1729. Since John Powers’ grant at King Williams County in 1657, his descendants or relations had expanded to Isle of Wight, Hanover, Louisa and Goochland Counties by 1722. Since I feel that John Powers was originally of the Hampshire branch, I cannot visualize these ‘Eastern’ Powers as being part of the Scotch-Irish migrations. They were already firmly placed before it began. If Innocent Poore (1623) of Elizabeth City left posterity, they also had shifted westward to Surry County and beyond as tobacco plantations spread west along the Carolina line.
Throughout this narrative will be mentions of counties, but it is very difficult to define a location to a given time. The counties evolved as settlement increased. The original districts were Charles City, Henrico, Kecoughton (Elizabeth City) and James City. The ‘shires’ or counties began in 1634: James City, Charles City, Accomac, Charles River (York), Henrico, Warrosquoyoake (Isle of Wight), Elizabeth City (extinct) and Warwick River (extinct). From these, new counties branched off, decade by decade. King William’s County, where John Powers settled in 1657, did not exist until 1701 when it was created from the older King and Queen County. There will be more on the evolution of counties later.
Finally, Thomas Poore of the Chowanoke grants at Mount Wells resurfaces. If he were an absentee landlord in 1663 when he received the grants, he would have sent in relatives as tenants. I believe that Thomas was my ancestral uncle and left Andover MA as an anti-Puritan. There were many, labeled as being ‘of Dorchester’, who fled to Barbados, Virginia and Charleston, South Carolina. When the horrible Indian massacres in the Jamestown region occurred in 1622, the Poores of Elizabeth City VA might have become extinct with the 1623 death of Innocent Poore. The Poore lands would have remained, however. Thomas may have been sent there as an administrator, initially. I see him as being a family official of some sort, with access to the islands and England. He was probably the secretary (clerk) of record to the governor of Barbados in the 1660s. As many others did, he retained a home in Hampshire or Wiltshire, plus his land in Massachusetts and Virginia. He is the most likely person to have been the father to Thomas Poore, born in England, in 1660, with an English wife named Elizabeth or Elizabetha. They had three children, Thomas, William and Elizabeth. Their son Thomas acquired, probably through Thomas Sr., land in Virginia. I am sure that it would have been in old Henrico County near Goochland City. Thomas Sr.’s grandson, Thomas Poore III (1700-1754) settled in Goochland County about 1720.
William, the second son of Thomas Sr., may have taken up residence on the North Carolina lands at Chowanoke. If so, his children would have slowly migrated westward as well.  In 1700, ‘Chowan’ had no defined boundaries. By 1740 the Chowan lands had become the limitless Bertie County, which shared the Piedmont with Craven and Bladen. They were defined by the rivers and swept westward across Tennessee to the Mississippi River. Edgecombe County did not exist at all in 1732 when Ned Poor appeared on the tax rolls, at present Edgecombe Co. Frances Poer Fox, a cousin from Texas, descends from David Poer (1744-1808).  In her family tree, “Ned” is written in the margin.  It may have been David’s father’s name.  1732 was far too early for Scotch-Irish immigration this far south, unless the Edgecombe Co. Poors came directly from Ulster to Carolina, which I doubt. There were some Ulstermen at the eastern plantations as indentured servants. When their indenture was served, they were granted ‘Freeman’ status and went west to seek their own land.
As for Thomas Poore Sr., I must finally put him to rest. Connecting the factual Thomas with Thomas Poore of Barbados and Massachusetts is total speculation, but it could have happened. Many things may have occurred in his later life. He may have lost his wife in England and sold his properties. Returning to Andover after his older sister and brothers began to die in 1680, Thomas finished out his life alone and died in 1695.
Three fourths of all land west of the fall line was still wilderness, from South Carolina to Pennsylvania. It remained Indian Territory and only a few adventurous Easterners ventured there. The smaller tribes had suffered decades of being pushed deeper into the backcountry. Thousands, with no built-in immunity had succumbed to disease. In the Carolina Piedmont, the Siouan Catawba owned the fertile central zone and remained friendly. They stood as a barrier to the warlike Cherokee in the west. Closest to the settlements had been the Tuscarora, an Iroquoian nation related to the Cherokee. Even with the Catawba as a barrier, Shawnee and Cherokee raided the Tuscarora for years. The wars became so intense that the Tuscarora moved eastward, encroaching upon English lands. In 1711, the colonists attacked the Tuscarora as well. The once powerful tribe sent delegations north, to New York. They sought asylum with their northern cousins, the League of the 5 Nations. After negotiations that lasted until 1712, the Iroquois appointed the Oneida as sponsors for the Tuscarora. They were granted permission to remove to Oneida lands, but would undergo a 10-year probation period. By 1729 the Tuscarora had abandoned all of their Carolina lands and retired to New York. From that point forward, the Iroquois became the 6 Nations.
Virginia had known about its western regions since 1666, when Henry Batte (Batts of Salisbury, Wiltshire) had crossed the mountains to the Great Kanawha River of West Virginia. He found there a tribe named Xualae, near the Ohio River at the mouth of the Kanawha. The name seems to be of Siouan origin, possibly linking them to the Omaha of Nebraska. “Xu” in Omaha refers to the sacred color brown, for the Earth. The prefix is found with medicine rites of the ancient mother clan Honga. When the Omaha groups migrated west in the 1500s, the Xualae remained in the old homeland. In 1671, they were all but exterminated by the Cherokee, who were in turn driven south again by the Iroquois in 1672.
In 1701 the colonial government of Virginia tried to get people to settle the backcountry, but there were few takers. Vast tracts of 10 to 30 thousand acres were offered tax-free for 10 years. This may be when present Goochland and Hanover Counties were settled. Individuals could receive 50-acre tracts in the western lands as long as there would be at least one-armed man for every 500 acres. To the Tidewater colonists, the ‘West’ was far away and full of danger.
In 1716, Governor Spotwood of Virginia personally led an expedition up the Rapidan River and crossed the Blue Ridge Mountains. Beyond, he found a vast and beautiful valley with the larger Appalachian Range beyond. The river found there he named the Euphrates, but it has always been called by its Indian name, Shenandoah. The great “Valley of Virginia” stretched from the Potomac on the Maryland border 200 miles south to present Roanoke, VA. Herds of Elk and woods buffalo roamed the wide grasslands along the river. This narrow but fertile valley became the highway for the migrations to come.

At Goochland Co. on the James, Thomas Poore and John Powers’ descendants were mingling, forging their individual dynasties. From this central location west of present Richmond, the Poore-Power branches pushed both south and west, combining the ‘territories’ of the English-based old line with that of the newer Scotch-Irish clans. There are so many references of early family in Goochland that it is important to realize the original size of this county. It was created in 1729 from Henrico County. The original Goochland took up a major portion of central Virginia, including modern Chester, Powhatan, Cumberland, Buckinghamshire, Appomattox, Amherst, Nelson, Fluvanna and Albemarle counties. For those who may be researching the records of Thomas Poore, Abraham Poore or the assorted Powers of Goochland, look at all related county sources. I believe this large county was a major ancestral starting point, which coincided with the separate Scotch-Irish migrations through the Valley of the Shenandoah.
There is an outside chance that William Poore (1720-1780) was of the Thomas Poore group of England and not from the Scotch-Irish clans. The original Thomas of England had two sons, Thomas Jr. and William. Thomas Jr. founded the Goochland Poores. His brother William may have been granted lands at either Chowanoke Plantation or old Elizabeth City County. If so, his son(s) could have migrated westward to present Pittsylvania County.

William Spencer (b. Bet. 1565 - 1580, d. Aft. 1633)
William Spencer was born Bet. 1565 - 1580 in England, and died Aft. 1633 in Virginia. He married Alice Lightfoot.

 Notes for William Spencer:
The "London Company" sent three smallships, the "Godspeed", the "Discovery", and the "Susan Constant", under the command of Capt. Christopher Newport, to Virginia. They reached the mouth of the James River in late April 1607, and the 120 settlers landed 30 miles up the James River. John Smith and Edward Wingfield were two of their leaders. Two-thirds of the first settlers died of disease and famine within the first year. Jamestown was to have been abandoned in May 1610, but fresh supplies and new settlers arrived, and the town prospered after that.

From the information I have, There were both an "Ensign" William Spence and a "Ensign and Ancient Planter" William Spencer who were part of the first Jamestown colony. Because of the difference in one letter in the last name, there is a lot of confusion in the facts about these two. This has been documented in reference material that I have. I do know that William Spencer came to Jamestown on the Susan Constant in 1607. I'm not sure what ship William Spence came over on as I haven't bothered to check. I do know both men were granted land. Who was first is not an issue with me. I do know that William Spence was "a member of the House of Burgesses, 1619, who with his wife and "infans Spence" was living in James Island (Jamestown), 16 Feb.1623/24". He and Mrs Spence were listed as "lost" in the enumeration of those who had died between 1623 and Feb.1624. Also listed among the dead was "William Spencer, a child" no doubt the son of William Spencer.
William Spencer was no doubt one of 60 who survived as he was Burgess of Mulberry Island in 1624 and in 1632-33. He had four children: William, Alice, Ann and Elizabeth. Two survived: Elizabeth and Ann.
Elizabeth Spencer was married twice: first to Robert Sheppard and second to Thomas Warren. Of the four children Elizabeth Spencer had by Robert Sheppard only Anne Sheppard Survived. She also had a daughter by Thomas Warren named Elizabeth Warren.
Ann Spencer married Capt. William Cockerham.
Anne Sheppard was married 3 times: first to Thomas Hart, then William Newsom and then to George Foster.
I do have photos of The reconstructed Susan Constant, supplied to me by another cousin. The other surnames I am researching are: Boone, Boggs, Cook, Guilbert, Henderson, Lane, Andrews, Lee, Poe Pender, Shepard (one P) and Wallace.

Enclosed you will find a copy of an article titled "WILLIAM SPENCER AND THE WHITING FAMILY OF EARLIEST VIRGINIA," by William Thorndale, C. G. A. G.
This article was published in "The Virginia Genealogist" in 1992. I was directed to it by John Frederick Dorman, finishing editor of the 1987 edition of "ADVENTURERS OF PURSE AND PERSON" and editor of "The Virginia Genealogist." I had the opportunity to talk with Mr. Dorman by phone a few weeks after he stood before members of and organization called "Order of Descendants of Ancient Planters" and announced that new evidence proved that William Spencer did not arrive on the "Susan Constant" in 1607 as stated in "Purse and Person".
When I questioned Mr. Dorman about the information in "Purse and Person", he stated that at the time he took over as editor for Virginia M. Meyer (editor from 1974-1981) the entry to William Spencer (coming to Virginia on the Sarah [Susan Constant]) had already been made and he did not re-check the research on it as it would have taken years. He went on to say that it appeared Virginia Meyer had based her conclusion on three things:
1) The writings of John Smith,.. Captain John Smith in referring to the men to whom Sir Thomas Dale had allotted farms for the raising of corn, said in 1614, " From all these farmers whereof the first was William Spencer, an honest valiant and industrious man ( and haith continued from 1607 to the present )from those is expected such a contribution to the store, as we shall neither want for ourselves, nor entertain our supplies. (ref: John Smith "Travels II", p. 516)
2) an article referred to in the footnotes of "Purse and Person" titled "Sarah Versus Susan", and
3) The reference found in the 1956 edition of "Purse and Person", taken from the 1924/25 muster of Hotten's "Original List", p 33, which states that William Spencer came in the "Sarah".
They now believe that John Smith was referring to William Spence, who came in the "first supply"; that the article "Sarah Versus Susan" doesn't have much merit, and that William Spencer came in the "Sarah" around 1611. Mr. Dorman went on to say that he could not find one bit of documentation that supports the theory that William Spencer arrived on the "Susan Constant."
All of this falls right in line with what you saw, when you visited the Jamestown settlement. Remember, their display stating William Spence was the first to patent land? Looks like the historians at Virginia Parks and Services know more the genealogy experts.

Sarah Spence was three years old when her parents disappeared during the Second Anglo-Powhatan War. By late 1624 the Virginia General Court had named an administrator for the Spence state, providing part of a succession of legal actions that supply important facts about some other early Virginians.
Jamestown Island in the early 1620's had a William Spence and a William Spencer, each with a wife and daughter. Despite anoccasional "r" dropped from Spencer or added to Spence, the two men are easily differentiated, since by 1619 Spence bore the rank of ensign. William Spence came in the first supply, was mentioned several times in John Smith's histories, served in the first Assembly, and as Ensign Wm. Spencer received appointment as a tobacco inspector.1 He and "Mrs Spence" appear in the 1624 census as "lost," and a patent of 12 Jan. 1624[/25] says Ensign Wm Spencer is deceased.2 Two days earlier a Susan Bush became guardian of Sarah Spence, orphan. 3
The William "Spence" with ux and infans in the 1624 census of James Island is actually William Spencer of the biographical entry in ADVENTURERS OF PURSE AND PERSON, He having lived into the late 1630's and left descendants. He appears in the 1625 census as William Spencer with a wife and daughter both named Alice, and he came to Virginia on the Sarah, date not stated. Some would make him a Jamestown founder because an occasional early 20th-century history refers to the Susan Constant and the Sarah Constant, hence maybe Sarah for short.4 However, the 104 Jamestown founders, with 87 known by name, do not include a Spence or Spencer.5 In another alleged link, John Smith wrote in his General Historie of 1624 that William Spence, also called Ensign William Spencer, "hath continued from 1607 to this present" in Virginia.6 The year 1607 may sound like the founding of Jamestown, but Smith clearly meant the ensign who came in the first supply. No contradiction exists, since the John and Francis of the first supply docked at Jamestown on 2 Jan. 1607/8, more than eleven weeks before the year 1607 ended on 24 March.7 Therefore William Spencer was no Jamestown founder but probably came to Virginia about the time of Thomas Sully, who appears in the 1625 census as arriving on the Sarah in 1611._____________________________________________________________
Instructions for the Virginia Colony, 1606
As we doubt not but you will have especial care to observe theordinances set down by the King's Majesty and delivered unto you under the Privy Seal; so for your better directions upon your first landing we have thought good to recommend unto your care these instructions and articles following. When it shall please God to send you on the coast of Virginia, you shall do your best endeavour to find out a safe port in the entrance of some navigable river, making choice of such a one as runneth farthest into the land, and if you happen to discover divers portable rivers, and amongst them any one that hath two main branches, if the difference be not great, make choice of that which bendeth most toward the North-West for that way you shall soonest find the other sea. When you have made choice of the river on which you mean to settle, be not hasty in landing your victuals and munitions; but first let Captain Newport discover how far that river may be found navigable, that you make election of the strongest, most wholesome and fertile place; for if you make many removes, besides the loss of time, you shall greatly spoily our victuals and your caske, and with great pain transport it in small boats. But if you choose your place so far up as a bark of fifty tuns will float, then you may lay all your provisions ashore with ease, and the better receive the trade of all the countries about you in the land; and such a place you may perchance find a hundred miles from the river's mouth, and the further up the better. For if you sit down near the entrance, except it be in some island that is strong by nature, an enemy that may approach you on even ground, may easily pull you out; and if he be driven to seek you a hundred miles [in] the land in boats, you shall from both sides of the river where it is narrowest, so beat them with your muskets as they shall never be able to prevail against you. And to the end that you be not surprired as the French were in Florida by Melindus, and the Spaniard in the same place by the French, you shall do well to make this double provision. First, erect a little stoure at the mouth of the river that may lodge some ten men; with whom you shall leave a light boat, that when any fleet shall be in sight, they may come with speed to give you warning. Secondly, you must in no case suffer any of the native people of the country to inhabit between you and the sea coast; for you cannot carry yourselves so towards them, but they will grow discontented with your habitation, and be ready to guide and assist any nation that shall come to invade you; and if you neglect this, you neglect your safety. When you have discovered as far up the river as you mean to plant yourselves, and landed your victuals and munitions; to the end that every man may know his charge, you shall do well to divide your six score men into three parts; whereof one party of them you may appoint to fortifie and build, of which your first work must be your storehouse for victuals; the other you may imploy in preparing your ground and sowing your corn and roots; the other ten of these forty you must leave as centinel at the haven's mouth. The other forty you may imploy for two months in discovery of the river above you, and on the country about you; which charge Captain Newport and Captain Gosnold may undertake of these forty discoverers. When they doe spie any high lands or hills, Captain Gosnold may take twenty of the company to cross over the lands, and carrying a halfdozen pickaxes to try if they can find any minerals. The other twenty may go on by river, and pitch up boughs upon the bank's side, by which the other boats shall follow them by the same turnings. You may also take with them a wherry, such as is used here in the Thames; by which you may send back to the President for supply of munition or any other want, that you may not be driven to return for every small defect. You must observe if you can, whether the river on which you plant doth spring out of mountains or out of lakes. If it be out of any lake, the passage to the other sea will be more easy, and [it] is like enough,that out of the same lake you shall find some spring which run[s] the contrary way towards the East India Sea; for the great and famous rivers of Volga, Tan[a]is and Dwina have three heads near joynd; and yet the one falleth into the Caspian Sea, the other into the Euxine Sea, and the third into the Paelonian Sea. In all your passages you must have great care not to offend the naturals [natives], if you can eschew it; and imploy some few of your company to trade with them for corn and all other . .. victuals if you have any; and this you must do before that they perceive you mean to plant among them; for not being sure how your own seed corn will prosper the first year, to avoid the danger of famine, use and endeavour to store yourselves of the country corn. Your discoverers that pass over land with hired guides, must look well to them that they slip not from them: and for more assurance, let them take a compass with them, and write down how far they go upon every point of the compass; for that country having no way nor path, if that your guides run from you in the great woods or desert, you shall hardly ever find a passage back. And how weary so ever your soldiers be, let them never trust the country people with the carriage of their weapons; for if they run from you with your shott, which they only fear, they will easily kill them all with their arrows. And whensoever any of yours shoots before them, be sure they may be chosen out of your best marksmen; for if they see your learners miss what they aim at, they will think the weapon not so terrible, and thereby will be bould to assault you. Above allthings, do not advertize the killing of any of your men, that the country people may know it; if they perceive that they are but common men, and that with the loss of many of theirs they diminish any part of yours, they will make many adventures upon you. If the country be populous, you shall do well also, not to let them see or know of your sick men, if you have any; which may also encourage them to many enterprizes. You must take especial care that you choose a seat for habitation that shall not be over burthened with woods near your town; for all the men you have, shall not he able to cleanse twenty acres a year; besides that it may serve for a covert for your enemies roundabout. Neither must you plant in a low or moist place, because it will prove unhealthfull. You shall judge of the good air by the people; for some part of that coast where the lands are low, have their people blear eyed, and with swollen bellies and legs; but if the naturals he strong and clean made, it is a true sign of a wholesome soil. You must take order to draw up the pinnace that is left with you, under the fort: and take her sails and anchors ashore, all but a small kedge to ride by; least some ill-dispositioned persons slip away with her. You must take care that your marriners that go for wages, do not mar your trade; for those that mind not to inhabite, for a little gain will debase the estimation of exchange, and hinder the trade for ever after; and therefore you shall not admit or suffer any person whatsoever, other than such as shall be appointed by the President and Counsel there, to buy any merchandizes or other things whatsoever. It were necessary that all your carpenters and other such like workmen about building do first build your storehouse and those other rooms of publick and necessary use before any house be set up for any private person: and though the workman may belong to any private persons yet let them all work together first for the company and then for private men. And seeing order is at the same price with confusion, it shall be adviseably done to set your houses even and by a line, that your street may have a good breadth, and be carried square about your market place and every street's end opening into it; that from thence, with a few field pieces, you may command every street throughout; which market place you may also fortify if you think it needfull. You shall do well to send a perfect relation by Captaine Newport of all that is done, what height you are seated, how far into the land, what commodities you find, what soil, woods and their several kinds, and so of all other things else to advertise particularly; and to suffer no man to return but by pasport from the President and Counsel, nor to write any letter of anything that may discourage others. Lastly and chiefly the way to prosper and achieve good success is to make yourselves all of one mind for the good of your country and your own, and to serve and fear God the Giver of all Goodness, for every plantation which our Heavenly Father hath not planted shall be rooted out.

He arrived in Virginia in 1607 aboard the ship Susan Constant with Captain Christopher Newport, the fearless English Captain. As a "yeoman and Ancient Planter" he received 12 acres of land in James
City (Jamestowne), on 14 August 1624.
His wife was named Alice.
His daughter Elizabeth married Major Robert Sheppard.
From the Adventurers of Purse and Person 3rd. edition, 1987 page 581 " William Spencer came to Virginia in 1607 aboard the Sarah (Susan Constant) with Christopher Newport as a member of the first expedition to the colony. In 1614 Captain John Smith noted that the men to whom Sir Thomas Dale had allotted farms for the raising of corn were farmers whereof the first was William Spencer, an honest, valiant, and industrious man (and hath continued from 1607 to this present).
In the muster of 24 January 1624/5 William Spencer resided at James Island (Jamestowne) with his wife Alice and their daughter Alice, the family being well supplied, having ten barrels of corn, 200 fish, and for
their protection ammunition consisting of four pounds of powder, eight pounds of shot and three peeces", along with twelve swine, three goats, and two kids. They also had two dwelling houses and one boat.
As a "yeoman and Ancient Planter", he received a patent for 12 acres at James City, 14 August 1624. This acreage was "part of his first dividend within the Island towards Goose Hill" and was to be deducted out of his dividend at Spencer's Hole. In 1629 the General Court granted him permission to take up 400 acres "in any place not already taken up." In three patents, 1632, 1635, and 1637, he received a total of 1900 acres on the South side of the James River adjacent to Lawne's creek in the area which became Surry County, 1652. This included 100 acres "westwardly upon Hog Island Creek", and a 500 acre tract which he patented, 1637, as William Spencer, Gentleman. His fourth grant in the area was for 1350
acres, apparently including some of the land previously patented.

Below information from the "Wilson and Pennington family tree" on Worldconnect project.
William Spencer, ancient planter, is noted as a member of the first expedition which arrived at Jamestown, for he came over on the Sarah Constant with Christopher Newport in 1607. Captain John Smith in referring to the men to whom Sir Thomas Dale had allotted farms for the raising of corn, said in 1614, "From the first was William Spencer, an honest, valiant, and industrious man, (and hath continued from 1607 to this present) from those is expected such a contribution to the store, as we shall neither want for ourselves, nor entertain our supplies".
(Tyler's Narrative, page 312) John Rolfe said," William Spencer and Thomas Barrett, a sergent, with some others of the Ancient Planters being set free, were the first farmers that went forth; and have chosen places to their content: so that knowing their own land they strive who should exceed in building and planting. (Tyler's narrative, pg. 337)
On August 14, 1624, William Spencer, "yeoman and ancient planter" received a grant of 12 acres on Jamestown Island "part of his first dividend within the Island, towards Goose Hill, near land of sir Thomas Dale, due for his personal adventure." As William Spencer "of James Island," he patented 250 acres on the west side of Lawne's Creek at the mouth, September 9, 1632. This clearly identifies the Surry patentee as being William Spencer of Jamestown. (Hotten's Emigrants, pg. 228).
He was living at Jamestown in 1624 with his wife, Alice, and daughter, Alice, and was Burgess for Mulberry Island 1623 and 1632-1633. In 1635 he patented 1100 acres on "Lawnes Creek and Westerly upon Hog Island Creek, Southerly upon a parcel of land he hath taken up near the mouth of the creek." (Hotten's Emigrants, pg. 228).
Two daughter's, Eliabeth, wife of Major Robert Sheppard, and Anne, wife of Captain William Cockerham, survived. Major Robert Sheppard died in 1654 and his widow Elizabeth married Thomas Warren. One daughter of this union, Elizabeth Warren, married John Hunnicut. Elizabeth (Spencer)_Sheppard, also had a daughter, Anne Sheppard, who married first, Thomas Hart, secondly, William Newsom. Through these several families, survive many descendents of this valiant Ancient Planter. (The William and Mary quarterly.) The Virginia Historical magazine states that William Spencer came to Virginia in the "First Supply" in 1608 and was the first to choose land.

Will 1770 of father Benjamin the tract of land called "Hornfair and the tract called "Posey Chance "and one gray mare." both in Durham Parish Maryland.

Benjamin Maddox II was a revoltionary militiaman and planter in Charles Co Maryland who later moved to the farmland of Abbevill County, South Carolina, where he would live out his days in peace.

Like his father and granfather Benjamin II was a tobacco planter. He inherited two 100 acre plantations from his father - Posey's Chance and Hornfair - in the once thriving and profitable farmland of Nanjemoy in Cahlres Co. Benjamin would have been severely impacted by the burdensome aper taxes imposed by the British to fund the war on the French and most likely was influenced by the rhetoric of his leading neighbors, - The Stones, Dents, Smallwoods and others, with whom the maddox family had married and inter acted.

The will was written as if Richard, Jr. was still living. His will was proved in 1711, so this will, undated as to when it was written, was likely written before 1711.

Jesse Lane (son of Joseph Lane, Jr. and Patience McKinnie) was born July 03, 1733 in Halifax Co., NC, and died October 28, 1806 in St. Louis, MO. He married Winifred A. Aycock on December 16, 1755 in Halifax, NC, daughter of William Aycock and Rebecca Pace.

 Notes for Jesse Lane:
Jesse Lane was born in Halifax County, N. Carolina on July 3rd or 4th, 1733, and moved to Wilkes County, Georgia in 1786 (Now Oglethorpe County or Elbert County). He lived in Georgia until 1800 when he emigrated to St Louis, MO where he died. He married Winifred Aycock and had 16 children, 8 sons and 8 daughters, whose descendants have spread throughout Georgia and the Southern States. His 4th son, John Lane, who married Betsy Street, had among his children a son Joseph (grandson of Jesse and nephew of Winifred Ann Lane), who became a General and was known as "the Marion of the War with Mexico". General Lane served as the first Governor of Oregon from 1848-50 (Oregon was made a territory in 1848), was a delegate to Congress from 1850-58, Oregon U.S. Senator for Oregon from 1859-1861, and a Vice-Presidental candidate for the United States in 1860 on the secession ticket (See further information on Joseph below). During the Revolutionary War Jesse Lane served in the 3rd North Carolina Continentals, the winter encampment at Valley Forge during the battles of Guilford Court House, Cowpens, and Kings Mountain. (see ) Two of his sons, John and Charles fought with their father in the Battle of Kings Mountain. Among his distinguished grandsons are the following: 1. Gen. Joseph Lane of Oregon, 2. Gov. Henry S. Lane of Indiana, 3. Alfred H. Colquitt of Georgia, 4. Lt Gov Robertson of North Carolina, 5. Gov David L. Swain of Chapel Hill, N. Carolina, 6. Hon George W. Lane of Alabama.
To understand where the family lived, one must remember the progression of lands received from the Cherokee and Creek Indians from 1773 until 1833, which became the various counties between the Ogeeche and Savannah Rivers. This information is contained in "The Wilkes Papers" 1773-1833
by Robert Scott Davis (1979)-Library of Congress 79-67498 F292.W7D38 (LH &G) ISBN 0-89308-170-1. In part the following information is given: A "Treaty" on 1 June 1773 with the indians ceded 1& 1/2 million
Acres to the British Government. Other lands were ceded from 1773-1776. Wilkes County was formed Feb. 5, 1777. Apparantly other lands were added to Wilkes County until 1790, after which other counties were formed from its lands. Elbert County-10 Dec 1793, Warren County-19 Dec 1793, Lincoln
County-20 Feb 1796, Madison County-5 Dec 1811, Talioferro County-24 Dec 1825, Hart County-7 Dec 1852, and McDuffie County-18 Oct 1870. Events which took place in different counties such as births, deaths, & marriages could in truth have reflected only the changed county names of the location.
Jessie Lane was born July 3, 1733, in Halifax County, North Carolina, married Winifred Aweck (Welch name, now pronounced Aycock), whose mother's name was Rebecca Pace. Winifred Aweck Lane, a noble Christian woman, was born april 11, 1741, married Jesse Lane 1755, died 1794. Jesse Lane served in the Revolution, was an officer in Third North Carolina Continentals. [FN:Army accts. Vol. 13, Sec. AA p.50, 1782; also page 175, 11-16-1793;:FN] was with his son John Lane, (father of Gen. Joseph Lane) in Battle of Kings Mountain; moved to Georgia in 1784, first to Elbert and Oglethorp County, thence
to Jackson part of Clarke County, near Athens; visited his children in Kentucky and Illinois and died there in 1806. Jesse Lane and his son Jonathan, and son-in-law, David Lowry, built one of the first Methodist Churches in Georgia in 1787, dedicated by Revs. Humphreys and Majors. Jesse died on a trip to visit Mary and Sarah (twins) According to "Roster of Rev. Soldiers in GA, Vol. III," Jesse Lane settled first in Wilkes County (now Elbert), then in Sparks Fort (now Clarke Co.). Jesse's wife Winifred Aycock Lane is buried in a cemetery on the campus of University of GA, which is in Clarke Co. "Historical Collections of the Joseph Habersham Chapter, DAR, Vol. II," p. 623 states Jesse "moved to GA in 1784, first to Elbert and Oglethorpe Counties, thence to Jackson, part of Clarke Co., near Athens...Jesse Lane and his son Jonathan, and son-in-law, David Lowry, built one of the first Methodist churches in GA in 1787, dedicated by Rev. Humphreys and Majors."
Jesse was at one time a Justice of the Peace, a wagon maker, and a gun stocker. These last two may
not sound like much but back then they were very important occupations. Jesse's brother Joel, well you could go on and on about him. It has been said that the first president of the United states spent the night in his house. Jesse's brother Joseph was a Justice of the County Court held in Wake County on
June 4, 1771. All of the brothers are supposed to have fought in the Revolutionary War. From what I understand Barnabas was captured in Canada. John served eighty four months and rose to the rank of sergeant. We are as positive as we can be, that James fought, but to the best of my knowledge it can not be proven. There is one group of people that say Jesse was an officer when he left the war after serving seven years. Then again there is another group of people that say he was only a private, which is what his army accounts indicate. No detailed record can be found that will tell us exactly what Jesse did. We can follow the units that he served with, fairly well, and be assured that he fought in some very important battles. After the war Jesse received six hundred and forty acres of land for his services during the war. It has been said that one of the reasons Jesse left North Carolina for Georgia was because of a split with the church that he and his family was going to. They evidently left North Carolina for Georgia in 1783. They moved into what was then Wilkes County, Georgia. It has since then been divided into several counties. The area they lived in is evidently Clarke county now. If Jesse had
known how bad the Indians were I just don't think he would have taken the land in this particular area.

This obituary of Joseph Lane, Jesse's grandson, was in "The Reporter": "Mrs. Captain Albert G. Dennis of this city received on Friday, last, a letter from Roseburg, Oregon, and also a copy of the Roseburg Independent announcing the death of General Joseph Lane, a relative of Mrs. Dennis. General Lane was a remarkable man; he was a man of stong mind a brillant and fearless soldier and made for himself a record in the Mexican War that will live as long as the county. He was at one time in his early life a citizen of Henderson County and for that reason we reprint a portion of his life's history as it appeared in the Independent.
Joseph Lane was born in North Carolina on the 14th of December 1801. His father removed to Henderson County, Kentucky-then a frontier state- in 1804. The educational advantage of the son were meagre. From early boyhood until he attained the age of 20 years he was alternately employed upon the farm, and the office of the county clerk, and in the county store. In 1824, he was married to Polly Hart and settled upon a farm in Vanderburg County, Indiana. The following year he was elected to the legislature and for twenty-five years, almost continuosly, he represented the county in one branch or the
other of the state legislature. When the war commenced with Mexico in 1846, he resigned his seat in the state senate and enlisted as a private soldier. His company with several others having assembled at New Albany and formed a regiment. Lane, the private soldier, was elected Colonel- Shortly
afterwards, he received from President Polk, a commission of Brigadier General. He immediately set out for the scat of war in command of three regiments of Indiana Volunteers. And in two weeks time landed in the Brazos and reported for duty. His brigade was assigned to Major General W. C.
Butler's dividion. At the battle of Buena Vista, he commanded the left wing of the army and commenced the action by attacking a division of the Mexican army, numbering fifty thousand, commanded by General Ampudi. In the course of the battle he was in the hottest of the fight and was severly wounded by an Escopet ball, which passed through his right arm near the shoulder, but remained on his horse and in command of his troops until the enemy were routed and driven from the field. That night he received complimentary congratulations from the "Rough and Ready" old soldier, General Taylor, who
never wasted words in undeserved praise. Thus within a few short weeks after the farmer was engaged in peaceful occupation upon the banks of the Ohio, he had "set a squadron" in the field and evolved into the able general, successfully commanding a division of an army, one of the hardest fought and bloodiest battles of the war. In June, he returned to New Orleans where the Indiana Regiments were disband. Returning to General Taylors line he was ordered to join General Scott Landing at Vera Cruz. September 10. He took up the line of march for the City of Mexico in command of eight thousand troops. On October 9, he defeated Santa Anna at Huamanila. On the 19th, he attacked with strong force of Guerillas at Atixco and took the place. On the 29th, he dispersed another guerilla force at Tiascala. On November 22nd, he took Matamogras which was strongly fortified, capturing a large ammount of
ammunition and military stores. On December 11, reached General Scotts headquarters in the city of Mexico and was highly complimented by the hero of Chippawa and Lundy's Lane. The brillant exploits of General Lane and his brigade of three thousand men on this memorable march from Vera Cruz to the
city of Mexico have but few- parellels in the annuals of modern warfare. Their line of march was over the same general route pursued by Cortez in his conquest three hundred and twenty eight years before and which Prescott has so graphically described to successfully conduct and aggressive campaign with
a mere handful of troops in the heart of the enemy's country, gives evidence of a high order of military talent possessed by the commander, who had but a few months' experience in the art of war."

Does anyone have DNA or information on the Ten Mile, Harrison County,

e have DNA from our Morris line that purportedly traces back to Hammond Morris
. 1733, Richmond Co, VA d. Stokes Co, NC. I don't know if there is any
onnection to the Ten Mile clan.

f particular interest is Samuel Morris b. 20 Jan 1784, Louisa County, VA. He is
on of David Morris b. abt 1863, Louisa Co, VA and Elizabeth Guthrie b. abt
665. David's parents are said to be George Morris b. 1721, Trinity Parish,
ouisa Co, VA and Mary (unknown) b. abt 1725, Trinity Parish, Louisa Co., VA.

e have a Samuel Jones Morris born the same time in Virginia (don't know where)
ho went by name Jones Morris. We have found him in the US Census records:
820 Independent City of Richmond, VA
830, 1840 & 1850 Maury Co, TN
860 Chambers Co, TX
ther Morris relatives lived in Palestine and Tennessee Colony, TX

know there is a book about the Ten Mile family but don't think it includes
uch detail on the Samuel listed on FamilySearch. All I've found is on
amilySearch and it gives only his date of birth. Samuel has a brother named
uthrie Morris for whom more information is available.

oes anyone have any ideas or info that might help??
