Called CAPTAIN JOHN POSEY III of Virginia.

From "Truro Parish Virginia George Mason Forgotten Founder by Jeff Broadwater" "...Wahington could have ressented George Mason effort to collect on a note Washinton had cosigned for his SPENDTHRIFT firend JOHN POSEY. Mason and Washinton clashed, perhaps good naturedly, perhaps not when Truro Parish Va. decided to rebuilt Pohick Church. Mason wanted to rebuild on the old site, which was only about 3 miles from his home Gunston Hall. Washington preferred a location closer to Mt. Vernon...."

There is a mention of a CAPTAIN JOHN POSEY as a neighbor of George Washington June 24 1767 in a letter written by George to John Posey about money that John Posey had borrowed money from
George Washington and someone else...taken from info on George Washington on Who Do You think You Are Tv show one Fe. 11,1011 on Tim McGraw. Don't know if this is the same line. but it was from Virginia.

John III was probably born about 1720. It is uncertain when he migrated to Virginia, but he was there in 1750, for about that time he married Martha Floyd, who was the widow of George harrison. Harrison had devised all his property to his widow, Martha for life; the real estate which consisted of 838 acres in Fairfax County Virginia to go to his nephew, john West, at her death. For some reason this did Not occur, probably on account of the previous death of West, for when Martha Posey died 1768-69 the land passed to the daughters of William Harrison, George Harrisons brother.
By Act of Maryland Assembly Nov 27,1753 Martha posey was granted a ferry from George Washington's land in fairfaz County, Virginia, over the Potomac to Thomas marshall's land in Maryland. This ferry was discontinued by the same authority Oct. 1790. (Have paper copy from Southern Maryland College La Plata Maryland). 2012

CAPTAIN JOHN POSEY, also referred to in deeds as: Captain, Gentleman, Planter.
In 1755 he bought a small tract of land fro thomas marshall and in 1759 he and his wife acquired 345 acres in Fairfax, Co, Virginia from Charles Washington. One undred and forty-five acres of this tract were conveyed from John and Martha Posey to Daniel French in 1760. The remaining 200 acres to George Washington, to whom Posey had executed a bill of sale in 1765 covering 25 slaves, 40 cattle, 20 horses, 40 sheep. 80 hogs, and a large lot of household goods, including silverware of various descriptions, all of which was given to secure Washington against loss by reason of his having gone accurity for John Posey in a loan from George Mason.

The Posey home was just below Mount Veron and the Diary indicates how often Capt and Mrs posey and their older children were guests at the Washintons.
The Posey home was just below Mr. Vernon and Washington's Diary indicates how often Capt and Mrs. Posey and thier oldest children were guests at the Washington's. Cap. Posey was a frequent hunting companion of Washington's and often remained at mt Vernon for several days at a time.

Kentucky: A History of the State, Battle, Perrin, & Kniffin, 3rd ed.,
1886. Metcalfe County.

FRANKLIN DODDRIDGE ANDERSON was born in Barren (now Metcalfe) County,
September 13, 1836. His father, Washington Anderson, is a native of the
same county, born in April, 1812. Washington Anderson married Mahala
Jewell, who was born in Virginia in 1814, and came to Kentucky with her
parents, Benson and Judy Jewell, who settled in Barren County, Ky., in
1821. Washington Anderson has been, during the greater portion of his
life, engaged in agricultural pursuits and has accumulated a fine
property, which he divided among his children. He and wife are
consistent and acceptable members of the Baptist Church. Both are
living, aged seventy-three and seventy-one years respectively. David
Anderson, the father of Washington Anderson, was a Virginian by birth; he
came to Kentucky at an early day and married Sally Barton, a native of
Barren County, sometime about the year 1800. He followed the vocation of
a farmer in Barren County, until his death, which occurred in 1849. F.
D. Anderson was born and reared on a farm. He attended the common
schools, where he laid the foundation for an education which he acquired
in after life through his own exertions, and by his business abilities
have been brought out by his contact with the affairs of life. He
remained with his parents until he attained to his twenty-fifth year,
but had, after the age of twenty, done considerable trading, and had
bought a small tract of land, which he paid for previous to his
marriage, which occurred on the 27th day of August, 1862. His wife,
Barbara A., is a daughter of George and Willie Dilly; her parents were
natives of Virginia and residents of Barren County. She was born on the
--- day of --- 1838. They have been blessed by the birth of eight
children, all of whom are living, namely: Brent O., Virginia V.,
Fleming D., Lucinda F., Dixie, Lily D. and twin daughters, Kate and
Irene. After marriage Mr. Anderson continued farming and stock trading,
in which he has been very successful. He now owns a farm of 180 acres
of good land, well cultivated, and improved with good buildings, and a
good orchard which produces a variety of fruits. He and wife are
members of the Baptist Church, of which Mr. Anderson has held the office
of clerk many years. Politically he is a Democrat, and now holds the
office of sheriff of Metcalfe County. He was elected in 1884, after
having served as deputy sheriff for two years. He is a member of the I.
O. G. T., and his influence is extended to the temperance cause. He has
three brothers and three sisters, all of whom are married and living
within three-fourths of a mile of their parents. Though they have for
years lived thus closely connected, there has never been a shade of
trouble or contention among them. Mr. Anderson has only one
granddaughter and she boasts of having six grandmothers living. Mr.
Anderson is a patron of schools and churches and takes an interest in
the improvement of the community.

474 A Richard and Anne leased a cottage in Hartwell, Northamptonshire, England, Sept 16,1633.
I believe that there were two Richard Church’s the other (not our line) went to Plymouth and our line went to Hartford perhaps via Boston.

May have come on ship Griffin. Richard Church son of Richard and Alice, born Feb. 6, 1610 in England, married May 18, 1627, Anne, daughter of Edward Marsh, of Braintree, Massachusetts.

Anne and two children Edward and Mary came from England arriving in 1635 on the ship “Anne and Elizabeth”. Initially, Richard may have lived in Boston. In May or June 1636 he emigrated with this relative & friends: John Marsh, Nathaniel Marsh and Isaac Graves who all came from Braintree Co of Essex England to Hartford, Conn. They left on foot for a two week journey to settle Hartford. They had 160 head of cattle with them. Hartford actually began as a company of land owners.

With the Hooker Expedition they left the theocratic Massachusetts to found Hartford, Conn. and establish a more democratic government. The jouney was political, as well as religious. Hooker evidently also used the pulpit to expose a political philosophy. Hooker and his followers were instrumental in attaining some democratic principles in the Connecticut Constitution formulated at a General Court meeing May 31, 1638.
“The Hartford Founders Monument, located at the Gold Street Cemetery, lists the names of early settlers, including Richard Church, John Marsh, Thomas Judd and Isaac Graves. Richard’s home lot is Hartford was on what later became North Main Street. “

They came to Hartford Conn in 1636 where he drew 12 Acres of land in the 1st land division in 1639. Original propietor of Hartford. He had a house and land on Burr St and land at the cow pasture in 1640.
Richard was a viewer of chimneys in 1647-48 and a surveyor of highways in 1655. Chimneys were required to be checked once a month. The person holding the office was Chimney Viewer, hayward,did this job and the position was for a respected man. He was freed from watching warding and training by the General Court, March 7 1655. He was made a free in Connecticut in 1658. He evidently had an indentured man because the will of Robert Preston mentioned” My master, Richard Church of Hartford. ( info from A genealogy and History of the church Family in America). To beccome a freeman, one was required to be a member of the Congregational Church. Becoming a Freeman gave one the privilege of voting and holding office.

He and his son Samuel were two of 60 persons who were at a meeting at GoodmanWards house April 18,1659 and signed an agreement to remove themselves and families out of Connecticut to Massaachusetts. to form the town of Hadley, Massachusetts. Became original proprietor of Hadley in April 18, 1659. They moved up the Connecticut River. Most of the people were residents of Hartford, but some were from Wetherfield. They met at Nathaniel Ward’s house. Ward’s sister Margaret married Arnold Church brother of Richard who remained in England. Some of those who sigened were: Richard Church, Edward Church (his son) Thomas Wells, Stephen Terry, Joseph Kellogg, Samuel Smith, John white and John Marsh. The village of Hadley was settled on the east side of the river with Richard’s lot on the west side of the street. Richard bought land west of the river too. We took pictures of the houses now sitting on Richard and Edward lots, next to Cemetery Road on West Street. A considerable parkway lies between the two halves of West Street. Within this parkway was where the meeting hall was built in 1663. All of Richard’s family migrated to Hadley - Hatfield area, except son John who remained in Hartford.

"As appears by a contract made by Roger Ludlow, Esquire, with this company including Church under date of June 19,1650 agreement the company became bound to 'mow the grass on the meadows and stack the hay in the summer of 1650 and as early as the spring of 1651 to break up the ground of NORWALK preparatory to planting during the next summer. this agreement gives additional authority to the legend that a portion of the inhabitants psent the winter of 1650 on the spot, so Indians would not burn the haystackes. Most of the ahy was very probable fed to the cattle during the winter." from History of Connecticut Vol I 1857.

Because of church difficulties in 1659, richard Church and others leaf behind both personal and real estate and moved to Hadley, Massachusetts. Here in 1667 he died his wife Anne who survived him passes away at Hatfield, Massachusetts March 10,1684.

Richard is mostly likely buried in the hasley cemetery with no marker found. Aothers buried about the same time were: Stephen Terry, John barnard, william Westwood, william Partrigg, and Andrew Bacon.
"What induced him to emigrate, is of course uncertain. ." Died in Hadley, Mass., Dec. 16, 1667.

I believe that Richard was only married to Anne Marsh.

The first settlers of connecticut went from massachusetts Bay and Plymouth Colonies and located at windsor, Hartford, Wethersfield, Saybrook, New London and other places.

fifty or sixty miles distant, and there took a keel-boat, ^Ir.
Buckles, sr., who was an old boatman, acting as his own pilot.
They came down the Tennessee, into which the Clinch River
flows, and oyer the Muscle Shoals. It was the custom to employ
the Indians as pilots over these shoals, but Mr. Buckles employed
himself. They came up the Ohio River and the Wabash to what
is now White County. Here they found a pretty good country
for farming ; but the fever and ague lurked behind every stump,
and it required three years to become seasoned to the climate.
Mr. Buckles was so discouraged that he sold out ever}i;hing and
started to return to Virginia, but after going fifteen miles through
Indiana he stopped, changed his mind, went to work for a man
named Livingston, raised a crop, and in the fall returned to
White County, Illinois.

During the war of 1812, the settlers felt themselves in a dan-
gerous situation on the frontier, and much of the time were col-
lected in forts. Abram Buckles helped to build a fort in White
County, and the family sometimes lived in it when signs of Indi-
ans became alarming. Mr. Buckles, sr., belonged to the rangers.
From sixty to a hundred scouts were kept out all the time.
Abram Buckles, then a lad, clearly remembers the gathering of
the Indians as they passed by on their way to Tippecanoe. They

then professed warm friendship for the whites, and did not
attempt to molest the settlers. One of the squaws cured Mr.
Buckles, sr., of rheumatism in the arm, and it was, indeed, a
very remarkable cure, though it required six days to bring it
about. The Indians passed on to Tippecanoe, and there their
professions of friendship were changed into active hostilities.
The battle began at daybreak, and was fought with the greatest
fury ; but the Indians were at last defeated, and this broke their
power during the remainder of the contest. It was the successful
management of the forces of the whites in this battle, which made
General Harrison president of the United States.

In 1819, Mr. Buckles married Miss Mary Williams. He has
five sons and five daughters living.

In 1832 he came with his family to Buckles' Grove. His
experience in the West has been some^vhat varied. He has occa-
sionally done a little hunting, as all the old settlers have. He has
had some fun while chasino; wolves and runnino- them down.
This sport is not at all dangerous on account of the wolves, but
in the excitement the horses were sometimes liable to stumble
and fall. The wolves, when caught, were usually killed with a
stirrup. He chased one wolf fifteen miles before catching it.
Abram Buckles may almost be said to have inherited a love for
hunting wolves. His father hunted them in Yiro-inia. At one
time the old gentleman caught a wolf in a pen and put a bell
around its neck, in order that people might know when wolves
were around. The wolf cautiously kept still, in the daytime, but
at night his bell was often heard. ISTevertheless, this did not pre-
vent the ravages of the wolves among the sheep and pigs ; the
latter disappeared quite as often as before, and the next time the
wolf fell into the trap he was killed.

Mr. Buckles has often had trouble with prairie fires which
burned stacks and fences. His brother Peter once had a lively
time while crossing the prairie with an ox-team and wagon, in
which was his wife. He saw the blaze comins; at a o-reat distance,
and immediately jumped from his wagon and fired his gun
through the dry grass. It blazed up quickly and soon a burnt
place was made upon which he drove his oxen, and he managed
to hold them until the fire passed on. The heat was terrible, and
seemed almost unbearable, for the hot air passes ahead of the fire


for some distance. His "wdfe covered herself up in the blankets
and suffered little. Abram Buckles tells of a party of bee-bunters
who came up from Sangamon County in search of honey. They
were quite successful and started on their return. When they
had gone a few miles south of where Bloomington now stands,
one of the hunters started a fire for the fun of seeing it burn. It
came on them closer and closer, until they started up their team ;
then it went faster and faster, until they jumped from the wagon
into the creek to save themselves. Their wagon and load of
honey were burnt; and this was the result of building a fire "for
the fun of it."

Mr. Buckles' experience with the sudden change in the weather
in December, 1836, is this. He was husking corn about a mile
from the house on that mild winter's day, when the ground was
covered with water and snow. The west wind came, and he
hastened home, but long before he arrived there the frozen slush
bore his weight. He tells of a terrible event connected with this
sudden change. A man, whose name, he thinks, was McHildreth,
and his companion, were returning on horseback from the East,
where they had been selling cattle, and were within a few miles
of the Little Vermilion Ch'eek, when the west wind struck them.
They hastened to the creek, but it was high and filled with
moving ice. The nearest dwelling on their side of the creek was
twelve miles distant, and they had their choice to wait for the
creek to freeze over or ride twelve miles. On the opposite side
they asked a man to cut down a tree to let them across, but he
refused, because of the cold, or. in order to get their money when
they should freeze. He directed them to a grove about four miles
distant, where he said they would find a house, but no house was
there. At last they determined to kill their horses, cut them
open, crawl into them and keep warm. Mr. McHildreth struck
at his horse's throat with his knife, l)ut the animal drew up
quickly, jerked away and disappeared. His companion killed the
other horse, cut it open and crawled in, but instead of keeping
warm was frozen to death. ]\fr. McHildreth remained by the
creek until it was frozen over, when he crossed it and found
assistance, but his hands and feet were frozen, and his fingers and
toes afterwards dropped off. We liave lieard this incident related
by several other settlers.

do not know if this is the right line, but it is fromMCLEAN CO HISTORY

The stories and incidents related of tliis sudden change are
never ending, and are more curious and strange even than those
of the deep snow.

Mr. Buckles attended the land sales in 1835, at Vandalia. At
these sales no speculator was allowed to come near, until the
settlers had attended to their claims and bid off their lands.

The first camp-meeting in Empire township was held in 1835
or '36, on Dickerson's farm, about a mile from where Leroy now
is. Mr. Buckles was absent at the time, but his recollection of
the matter is made lively by the fact that his oxen were taken to
haul wood, and in felling a tree one of them was killed.

Mr. Buckles has taken some interest in politics, has always
been a Democrat, and kept himself informed on the current topics
of the day. He says that one of the most exciting questions of
old days was the one relating to the Mormons. The excitement
was highest in 1841, '42 and '43. The Mormons sent out preachers
to make converts, and the people could examine into the beauties
of the Mormon faith. Mr. Buckles listened to one preacher,
who told of a terrible contest which would one clay come, but
was very indefinite as to the nature of the grand affair, or who
the parties t< it were ; nevertheless, he was successful in making
an impression on some ignorant people.

Abram Buckles is rather a tall man and quite fleshy. He
always wears a smile, and is ever ready with an old-fashioned
welcome. He is a very quiet man, but decided in his views. His
disposition is pretty well shown by a circumstance which hap-
pened during the late campaign, when Horace G-reeley and Gene-
ral Grant were candidates for the presidency. Mr. Buckles'
friends wished him to o-o for Mr. Greelev, and reasoned the mat-
ter again and again. At one time two gentlemen, who were
particularly enthusiastic, talked to Mr. Buckles for an hour or
more, and explained to him the whole situation. He listened to
them without a word of opposition, and with a kind smile on his
countenance, and finally they asked him if the matter was not
plain. "Yes," said Mr. Buckles, " it is plain that he is the same
old Horace !"

When William Buckles was young he followed the example
of other young men, and occasionally " went sparking." At one
time, while he was making a visit to a young lady, the family
treated him with great politeness, and at dinner offered him some
white sugar for his coffee. But he had never seen white sugar
before, and replied very promptly, " 'No, sir, he didn't take salt
in his coffee."

Mr. Peter Buckles, a brother to William, was a great hunter,
and sometimes he could not resist the temptation to go after game
on the Sabbath day. But after a while, when a revival was in
progress, he made a profession of religion, and promised never
again to hunt on Sundaj-, unless, he cautiously added, a wolf
should take some of his pigs, or his sheep, or his chickens, or
some of his other stock. With these exceptions, he promised the
brethren and sisters faithfully never again to hunt on Sunday.

Mr. Abraham Buckles, another member of this celebrated
family, now lives at Buckles' Grove. In early days he had never
seen a railroad and never expected to ; but in course of time a
railroad came working its way through to Bloomington, and
although Mr. Buckles lived out at the grove, which bears his
family name, he at last came across it, and his experience was
most interesting. Shortlj^ afterwards he was taking a young
lady some distance in his buggy ; but when he came within two
miles of the railroad he told her she would have to walk the
remainder of the journey, as he would not, under any circum-

m'lean county. 765

stances, go nearer than two miles of tlie track, for he said he had
been, but a short time before, on the track with his horse and
buggy, and the engine came after him like a threshing machine
and whooping like an Indian, and his old mare went faster and
faster, and when she left the track, she nearly upset the buggy.

482 Abraham appered as a witness for Zachariah Williams and his wife Mary (his sister) vs John Moseley. Abraham was paid for attending court three days. may 1759 this case involved a slave named rose which the Williams' claimed was given to Mary when she was a little giral by her grandfather, John Mosley, Sr. Mary's parents were Thomas Poor Jr. and Elizabeth Mosley daught of John Mosley Sr. Susanna Poor, widow of Thomas Poor Sr. stated in a dedimus to the court to be found in Goochland Bk6 Pg 423 that she and her deceased husband were present at John Mosley's house when he gave the slave named rose to Mary Poor who later married Zachariah Williams. However, it is evident that Mary never actually had the slave. When her father died, mary uncle John Moseley went to court over the slave. The case was dragged on and on throughout the court records with Zachariah and Mary finally winning. The inventory of the estate of Zachariah Williams recorded in Goochland 16 Sept 1766 included rose.. Poore, Mary (I643)
483 Abraham Weeks was important both in affairs of the Parish of Christ Church and those of the Colony. He was a vestryman from 1663to 1690 and churchwarden of Upper Chapel until replaced by his son Francis in 1688, who was later in 1697 High Sheriff. Ab Weeks was also appointed one of the County Feoffees in Trust for Town Lands in 1680.

484 Abraham, thomas, and a younger Elizabeth Dale lived in Richmond Co. 
     in the Northern Neck of Virginia.  They must have been the heirs of this Reuben 
     Dale, but the proof is yet to be found.  {April 4, 1960}. 

Abraham Dellaware Dale, the son of Reuben Dale, was born on June 3, 1693 in Virginia and died October 4, 1740, intestate, in Richmond County, Virginia.  It is thought that he was born in Richmond County, Virginia and lived his entire life there. In 1714 he married Winifred Southern, born on March 8, 1693. They lived on the head of Totuskey Creek that enters from the north side into the Rappahannock River [70]  in the Parish of North Farnham in mid-portion of Richmond County, Virginia.
Five sons are shown in the North Farnham Parish Register of Births, 1722-1800, Richmond County, Virginia including William, Reuben, Abraham, Isaac, Robert and Thomas. [71]  It is also known that they had two daughters, Ann and Frances. [72] The inventory of Abraham and Winifred Dale lists children as Rubin (sic), Abraham, Isaac, Robert, and Thomas. [73]
In August of 1715 Abraham Dale received one-half of the plantation and land of John Simmon(d)s in Richmond County, Virginia. This land was bequeathed by the will of John Simmonds to Abraham Dale and his son, Reuben Dale (the younger). Reuben Dale (the elder), Abraham Dale’s father,  had married Elizabeth Simmonds, John Simmonds daughter. John Simmond’s will states “All thereof of my land I do give to be co-equally divided between Abraham Dale and Thomas Young with my plantation I now live upon after the decease of loving wife Elizabeth, to them and their heirs forever.”  Isaac Dale, son of Abraham, received one two year old heifer from the same will. [74] Reuben Dale (the elder), who married Elizabeth Simmonds, was Abraham Dale’s father and Reuben and Isaac Dale’s grandfather. John Simmonds’ will further states “My will and choosing is that she (Elizabeth, his wife) shall not go without during her life but all to remain as I leave it, that is that she shall have the use of it as long as she lives.”
ohn Simmonds was the father of Elizabeth Simmonds who married Reuben Dale (the elder)  who was the father of Abraham Dale. This supports the relationship of John Simmonds to Reuben Dale (the elder) and Reuben Dale (the younger) to Abraham and Elizabeth Dale. On May 28, 1741 this land was sold by Reuben Dale (the younger), son of Abraham Dale, to George Glascock.

488 According to the History of Fayette County Pennsylviaia, by Franklin Ellis page 753-754, the Kern family emigrated from Holland to Eastern Pennsylvania about 1700. From there some of the family moved to Westmoreland Co. near Jone's Mill. There one of the family (Michael) was killed by Indians while returning from a visit to a neighbor, several of those who accompaned him escaped.

495 Adventurers of Purse and Person, p. 289:
William and his wife, Margaret, and daughter, Frances, came to America - Virginia in 1620 on board the ship SUPPLY. The Supply brought William Tracy and the Berkeley Hundred settlers.
Margaret married John Flood possibly in 1623 as his household included in 1624/25: Margaret, his wife, her daughter, Frances Finch, and William Flood who was 3 weeks old. They were living at Jordan's Journey near Charles City, VA.

Please note the conflicting dates of 1620 and 1621. If the ship left Sept 1620, it would have had to have landed Jan 1621,
yet so many documents have the ship listed as arriving in the colonies in January of 1620.
The Supply was the companion ship to the Mayflower. It left three weeks late from Bristol, England and found it's way to Barclay, Virginia on January 29, 1620/1
