Viney, John (I2350)
2805 Well known American landscape painter who commanded high prices for this striking use of light in his paintings. He was one of the most traveled apinters of the 19th century, making trips to south America, labrador, Europe and the Middle East in 1850's and 60's. Frederick was born in Hartford, Ct. May 4 1826 sone of Joseph and Eliza.

In 1860, Church bought a farm in Hudson, New York and married Isabel Carnes. Both Church's first son and daughter died in March 1865 of diphtheria, but he and his wife started a new family with the birth of Frederic Joseph in 1866. When he and his wife had a family of four children, they began to travel together. In 1867, they visited Europe and the Middle East, allowing Church to return to painting larger works.[7]
Before leaving on that trip, Church purchased the eighteen acres (73,000 m²) on the hilltop above his Hudson farmland he had long wanted because of its magnificent views of the Hudson River and the Catskills. In 1870, he began the construction of a Persian-inspired mansion on the hilltop and the family moved into the home in the summer of 1872. Richard Morris Hunt was the architect for Cosy Cottage at Olana,[3] and was consulted early on in the plans for the mansion, but after the Churches' trip to Europe and what is now Lebanon, Israel, Palestine, Syria, Jordan, and Egypt, the English architect Calvert Vaux was hired to complete the project.[3] Church was deeply involved in the process, even completing his own architectural sketches for its design. This highly personal and eclectic castle incorporated many of the design ideas that he had acquired during his travels.

Illness affected Church's output. Although he was enormously successful as an artist, by 1876, Church was stricken with rheumatoid arthritis which greatly reduced his ability to paint. He eventually painted with his left hand and continued to produce his work, although at a much slower pace. He devoted much of his energies during the final 20 years of his life to his house at Olana.

John Portis died at his residence on Fishing Creek near Ransom's Bridge and near the intersection of Halifax, Franklin, Warren, and Nash Counties. The property was also known as the "Portis Gold Mines". His antecedent ancestors in America reportedly originated in Isle of Wight and Surry Counties,Virginia(not yet confirmed). John Portis left a will which his widow Sarah, and a number of other legatees mutually agreed to suppress. However, his "minor" son, Ira Portis, "by his guardian" brought suit in the Halifax Superior Court to a) establish the will of his father, and b) recover the legacy left to him by his father. (Halifax Superior Court Docket. ("Suppressed Will of John Portis-1794-of Nash County, NC," North Carolina Genealogical Society Journal, Vol. IV, No. 3, August 1978, pp. 169-170). The will identifies his children and some aspects of their status as of 5 May 1800.

John Portiss listed in 1790 Census of Franklin Co., NC, Halifax District. 1 while male over 16 and heads of family, 4 free white males under age 16, 3 free white females and heads of family, and 1 slave.

2. William JONES. Born abt 1750 in Middlesex, Virginia.

William who in some records was referred to as a Major married Betty Churchill daughter of Col. Armistead Churchill.[i][i] William was described as from the Wilderness of Spotsylvania, Virginia. William Jones died in Grayson County, Virginia.
William married Betsy CHURCHILL.
The Jones family made their home along the waters of New River and Elk Creek, at a spot where there was an island in the river. This place was known for years as Jones Ford. During the Revolution, William was included in Captain Flower Swift's Company, but apparently was not fit to serve. It appears that after Betty died, William went to Mecklenburg County where he married Susanna and then returned west. The following year, he was made an Overseer of the road from Jones' Ford to Cranberry Creek. William's will was dated in Grayson County on September 9, 1805."[ii][ii]

Capt. Thomas Lane, Sr. (b. 1634, d. January 05, 1708/09)
Thomas Lane, Sr. (son of Richard Lane and Elizabeth Burwell) was born 1634 in Surry Co., VA, and died January 05, 1708/09 in Surry Co., VA. He married Elizabeth Jones Shepherd on June 11, 1661 in Surry Co., VA, daughter of Robert Shepherd and Elizabeth Spencer.

 Notes for Thomas Lane, Sr.:
"Thomas Lane born in 1634 is the first of the Lanes in Surry from which this family is traced." (Southside Virginia Families, "Lane of Surry and Sussex Virginia," Vol. 2, John Bennett Boddie, pp. 290-307). Thomas Lane of Surry County had sons: Thomas, Jr. and Joseph, Sr.. Joseph Lane Sr. was father of Mary Lane and Joseph Lane (md. Patience McKennie).
Surry County Records, Book 1, page 380: Thomas Lane on 3 Jan 1670 made a deposition, etc, giving his age as 36 (so he must have been born in 1634/5).
"Surry County Records, Book 2, page 60: A deposition by Thomas Lane on 1 Feb 1674 in which he gives his age as 39 and wherein he agrees to act with John Pricce (age 24) to appraise the estate of Thomas Taylor; sworn before Captain Charles Barham. They were "to meet at Mr. Arthur Long's house" but when they got there, the deputy sheriff, John Sellway, had gone to Austin Honecutt's house, etc., (it establishes the fact that Thomas was 26 years of age when he married "Widow Elizabeth Jones.")

More About THOMAS T LANE,SR.: Source: June 28, 2002, some of it.
"This old family," says Col. J. B. Hathaway of the Historical and Genealogical Register of Edenton, N. C., "is one of the most distinguished and influential of the early settlers of Virginia and North Carolina," It is said to be collaterally descended from Sir Raleigh (Ralph) Lane, who sailed from Plymouth, England, in a vessel fitted up by Sir Walter Raleigh in 1585, and who founded the colony of Roanoke, then a part of Virginia. . . . Captain Lane was a brace and daring young cavalier, the son of Sir Ralph Lane, of Orlinbury, whose wife, nee Parr, was a first cousin of Catherine Parr, the favored queen of Henry VIII. Lane was the first English governor in America and although the colony was broken up by the Croatan Indians, it is generally believed that some of them drifted into North Carolina and assisted greatly in building up the commonwealth of that state.
(General History of the Lanes, of North Carolina and Georgia. Page 619. Historical Collections of the Joseph Habersham Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution. Vol 11. 1902.)
The Columbia Encyclopedia gives this account of Sir Ralph Lane in America: "Sir Ralph Lane, c. 1530-1603, leader of the colony of Sir Walter Raleigh, numbering 107 persons, which remained on Roanoke Island, from the summer of 1585 to the summer of 1586, when Sir Frances Drake appeared with his fleet and transported them back to England. Lane was favorable impressed with the country, but he wished to move to Chesapeake Bay, which he believed was a better site. Circumstances prevented this. He wrote an account published in Hakluyt, "The Principal Navigations of the English Nation."
What the 'circumstances' were, we do not know. That there was a definite connection between this Sir Ralph lane and the Thomas Lane of Surry County, Virginia, has not been proven to the complete satisfaction of all who have made a genealogical study of the line. Some, however, do believe our Lanes are lineal descendents of Sir Ralph Lane of Orlinbury, England. Thomas Lane was born in Surry County, Virginia, in 1634, and is the first proven ancestor of our Lane family of staunch American patriots whose descendents are now scattered throughout the entire United States. (General History of the Lanes of Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Texas, 1961-1965, unpublished. Merle Kingsbery Woodward) Page 619. Historical Collections of the Joseph Habersham Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution. Vol 11. 1902.) (file sent by Bob Lilley on 9/21/01--see LaneThosDesc)

During one night what they thought they saw a body of Indians, but it proved to be cattle. They were obliged to travel during the night and remain hidden during the day, but were passaed by Indians who came uncomfortably close to them. While they remained hid a snow fell about 2 inches deep, so that they could be tracked. Then they knew that they must return to the army with all speed, which they did, a distance of 35 miles. The Indians, who were following up the spies, came up about the time the latter reached the army. “ Bay said that on one of his expeditions he became very sick, so sick that he was crazy and was left to die, but was found & brought into camp on a sled. pg 167 Bay Bk.

Thomas Allen*BIOGRAPHY ref: bios0032.txt by John Peck (A Rhoda Allen descendant) Re: [John] Rhoda Allen (ABT 1742- to 24 Aug 1820) last update 09 Mar 2003.
From family oral history, Rhoda Allen's ancestor Thomas Allen [or Allin] was born in 1650 in Ulster Province, Antrim, Ireland. His wife was possibly named Sarah. Around 1690/92 he and his teenage son Robert Allen, born abt 1674, emigrated to Port Tobacco, in Charles County, MD, on the ship "Charles" Both were Indentured Cabinet Makers. Thomas may have shown up in the 1704 Rent Roll Census St. Peter & Paul of VA, but apparently died on 2 May 1733 in Charles Co., MD. Robert Allen may have married about 1699 into the McDonald clan in Chs Co., MD. Their 1st child Thomas was born about 1702 in Chs Co., MD, but probably about 1704 this family moved to land inVirginiaand was listed on the 1704 census, and also in a 1749 land sale in Southhampton Co., VA. Robert must have returned to Chs Co.,Marylandto die there about. 1775. Robert's son Thomas, a wood worker b about 1702, may have been a Captain inVirginiain 1724. He appears to possibly be the Thomas in the 1732MarylandProbate records, the 1734 Chs Co. Tax rolls, then back to Southhampton Land in VA. He is believed to have died in Strafford Co.,Virginiaabt 1770/1775
[John] Rhoda Allen, Thomas allen's son, was b about 1742 in Charles Co., Md. He reportedly had 4 brothers. He was said to have been a bonded servant but worked off his bond before getting married about 1765/69 to Mary Emily Ransom (b about 1744) of probably Strafford Co.,Virginiaacross the river from Charles County. He was a wood worker and Methodist minister circuit rider, as were many of his sons. He was a master cabinetmaker, which craft he also passed on to his sons. A son Theophilus was born 1770 and a daughter Mary Emily born 1773, both supposedly in Charles County, MD. Rhoda reportedly moved his young family across the Rappahannock into Stafford Co.,Virginianear Dumpries. Rhoda bought land in Edgecombe Co.,North Carolinain 1773. He served in the American Revolution in 1775 as a Private in NC. His son Nathan N.G. Allen was born in 1775 in Edgecombe Co, NC. An El Nino occurred from 1776 to 1778- yielding very cold weather during the Revolution. About 1790/93 he moved his family to Gallatin Co, TN. He is thus qualified for a First Family of Tennessee Certificate. He had moved to Sumner Co., TN by 1793 where he registered a brand, and on 8 Apr 1794 he had bought 70 acres from John Williams, and was on the Sumner tax list. The Allen family had 8 children: Theophilis (b1770), Mary Emily (b 1773), Nathan N.G. (b 1775), Sarah (b 1777), Elizabeth (b 1780), Henry Davis (b 1782), John Rhodam (b 1785) and George Wesley (b 1787.) Three El Ninos occurred from 1782 to 1790, each yielding weather lasting several years. Mary Ransom died c1790/1807.
In 1810 Rhoda married a 2nd time to Lucinda Overby (b 1770) in Sumner County, TN. They had 4 children: Margaret N. (b 1811), John Wesley (b 1813) and William S. (b 1815.) In 1815, the deadliest volcano eruption in recorded history had led to the "year without a summer" in the eastern U.S. Rhoda was on the 1817, 1818, 1819 Sumner Co. Tax rolls. About 1819, Rhoda Organized a wagon train of 41 families, along with William Maxey, husband of daughter Mary Emily Allen, Rhoda's son, Rev. (John) Rhodam Allen II, and migrated to Shiloh Twp., Jefferson Co., IL with Lucinda and their three minor children. By 1820 he had bought 160 acres in Jefferson Co, IL and was in the census as one of the first families in Jefferson County. He was reported to be a Constable and Abolitionist in the County. On 24 Aug 1820, Rhoda reportedly died of a heart attack at age 78 while carrying a twelve foot long log to be used on a building he was erecting. He was the first to be buried in the Old Union Church Cemetery of Jefferson County. In 1854 part of Rhoda's land that passed to son N.N.G. Allen at Cherokee County, Texas was sold by son NNG Allen and wife to John Maxey in IL. Rhoda allen and his 3 emigrant ancestors here may qualify for The Order of The First Family of Maryland for resident in Maryland prior to 4 July 1776.

Zachariah is said to have been born 1733. I doubt this given his marriage in 1763. I believe he was the youngest son, probably not born until later - but he was surely born before 1738 since he purchased land in Rowan Co in 1759 and would have had to be 21 at that time.

2872 Note, 1684. 3 4 Excerpt from "The Demoss Family in America" c. 1952 by Edith Susanna
(Demoss) Caughron, Mrs. G. L. Neodesha, Kansas

LOUIS DEMOSS II was b. in Holland in 1684. Louis came to America with brother Charles as stowaways on a ship. Charles DeMoss was killed by indians, being unabelto escape because of injuries received before he came over. One tradition says that Charles died unmarried, another has it that he left a family of small children. Brother, Louis, (our connection) married the daughter of a Virginia planter (unkn last name) and raised a large family.

Count Louis Demoss, a Huguenot of a noble and wealthy Protestant family, fled from Paris, France, in October 1685, and settled in Holland. He had sons Louis and Charles.

The above is largely traditions and suppositions. With the next generation, the Demoss Family History begins, substantiated by recognized documents.

Louis Demoss III (Jr., Junr., et., in Land Records), spelled his name "Loie Dumas" when signing his name to his WILL in which he spelled the name of this children "Demos".

He may have come to Old Baltimore Co. (now Harford Co. since about 1744), Maryland, as early as 1700; but the first known of him definitely there is in 1715, when his oldest son, Lewis, was born or baptized (Parish records). Harford Co. is on the north line of Maryland, just west of the Susquehanna River, with the Susquehanna River the only barrier. This is immediately south of York Co., Pennsylvania, and corners with Lancaster Co.,PennsylvaniaHarford Co. was set out of Old Baltimore Co. about 1744. He was born probably in Holland, married Catherine, died about 1744. Berkeley Co., VA. (now West Virginia), his Will dated June 17, 1743. In 1752, Final Probate of Will by Thomas Cresap, son Charles being then of age 21. Burial place unknown. 
de Dumas, Count Louis (I2510)
