     Joseph S. Story and Elizabeth L. Gregory obtained a marriage bond on 9 November 1829 in Amherst County, Virginia, with Stephen B. Turner as security and Henry T. Gregory and N. P. Breedlove as witnesses.1

     I suspect this is the Joseph Story born c1808 in Virginia, who was enumerated in Madison County, Virginia in 1850 as being 42 years of age, a Farmer with a wife Eliza, age 35 and six children. He was a Farmer with real estate valued at $3,000.

     There is also a Joseph E. Story enumerated in Nelson County, Virginia, as being 46 years of age who was a Miller. But he appears married to a Jane Story. Could Elizabeth has died and Joseph remarried?2,3

     Bartholomew Stovall was born on 23 August 1759, son of George Stovall and Elizabeth Landon, in Bedford County, Virginia Colony.3,4

     Bartholomew began military service between August 1777 and September 1777 in Capt. Talbot's Company and re-enlisted January, 1781.3

     Bartholomew married Sarah Webster, daughter of Terisha Turner and Sarah (--?--). She was a widow at the time he married her because her name is listed as Sarah (Turner) Webster. However, I cannot find a marriage record as of 25 Jan 2021.3,5

     He performed his Military Service by serving with the Virginia troops as follows: from August or September 1777 for three months in Capt. Talbot's Company; from January 1781 for three months in Capt. Thomas McReynolds' Company; three months in Capt. William Trigg's Company, Col. Halcombes' Regiment.6

     On 18 April 1786, George Stovall names his sons: Bartholomew; James; George Jr. (who was deceased so he must mean his second son, George); and, daughters: Rachel Turner; Martha, Anne and Dorothy. He also states that "the children I had by my former wife have already received their portions." He names his wife, Elizabeth. He names Henry Turner as his son-in-law.7,2

     According to the author, there were three other unnamed daughters who married men with surnames: Saunders, Mayberry, and Martin for a total of ten children.3

     According to the list given the author by William Dumont, there was a son Territa who married Sally Bailey, but the author found a Campbell County, Virginia marriage bond for Territia marring Linda Rilley Bailey on 10 Sep 1804.8

     On 30 January 1812, he is named in his mother's will of this date.9

     On 14 November 1832, he applied for a pension based on his Revolutionary War service.3

     Bartholomew, 78, married Elizabeth Averett on 16 May 1838. She, also, was a widow. No maiden name has been determined for her, but her married name was Mrs. Elizabeth (Betsy) Averits (or Avetts, Avatta, Evitts).3

     On 19 January 1841, Bartholomew Stovall to Thomas Stovall, William Stovall, Byrd Stovall and James Stovall for the natural love and affection I have for my sons, I give ? acres in Districts #2, 14, and 13. Witnesses: Hugh Bone Hill, Taswell Dickinson. Registered 2 May 1841 at Sumner County, Tennessee.10

     Bartholomew Stovall died on 9 March 1841 at age 81 in Sumner County, Tennessee,3 and was buried at Willow Grove Cemetery, Templow, Trousdale County, Tennessee, on a hill opposite his residence.11,12

     Bartholomew Stovall was born on 24 August 1665, son of George Stovall and Joan (--?--), in Albury, Surrey, England. His birth is recorded four times in the Quaker records of Guilford, Surreyshire, England and can be found in the Library of the Religious Society of Friends, Friends' House, Euston Road, London, England. The name is spelled both Stowell and Stouell, but The General Index to Surrey Archaelogical Collection shows the name as Stowell, Stovald, Stovolde, Stovoll, Stovall, Stouell, and Stovale.1,2

     Bartholomew was baptized on 11 November 1683 at Albury, Surrey, England, "in the Guildford Muniment Room, Castle Arch, Guilford, Surrey, England. The Albury (Surry) parish register shows he was baptized when he was eighteen years of age. It is possible that Bartholomew left the Quakers and allowed himself to be baptized in the Church of England so that he might obtain permission to emigrate to America."1

     In 1684, Batholomew Stouell, son of George Stowell age about 21 years, of Alborough, signed up to serve as a husbandman (farmer) for a term of four years in return for his passage to Virginia, on the ship Booth, Captain Peter Pagan, Master.3

     In 1690, a Richard Kennon received 8,000 acres of land for all the emigrants he had brought to Virginia. In the year 1684 a 'Barth. Stowell' is listed as being brought to the Virginia Colony under the auspices of Kennon. A search for sixty years after 1684 in the Virginia records does not show any person with the name of Stowell.1

     On 6 August 1693, a 'Lycense for Mariage' was issued to Bar. Stovall and Ann Burton, Surety being Ann's stepfather, John Steward at Henrico County, Virginia Colony.4

     Bartholomew Stovall and Ann Burton obtained a marriage bond on 8 August 1693 in Henrico County, Virginia Colony, with Jno. Steward as Surety.4 Bartholomew, 27, married Ann Burton, 29, daughter of Thomas Burton and Susannah Nicholas, on 8 August 1693 at Henrico County, Virginia Colony.5

     On 16 August 1715, Bartho Stovall received 318 acres of land by patent on the south side of the James River on Deep Creek. There are numerous deed records, but the majority of deeds after his death seem to be in Goochland County, Virginia. For further information on Bartholomew and his family I strongly recommend reading the beautifully researched book mentioned as my source.1

     Bartholomew Stovall left a will dated on 14 January 1718 in Henrico County, Virginia Colony. I cannot find this will on FamilySearch as of 13 Jan 2021.6,7

     Bartholomew Stovall died circa 1721 in Deep Bottom, Henrico County, Virginia Colony. His home site at the time of his death is in Powhatan County, Virginia about five to ten miles north of the town of Powhatan."

     All Episcopal burials prior to 1741 are said to have been made at Jamestown, so they are probably buried there.1,8

     His estate was probated on 1 May 1721 in Henrico County, Virginia Colony.9

     George Stovall was born circa 1695, son of Bartholomew Stovall and Ann Burton, in Henrico County, Virginia Colony.2

     George Stovall married Elizabeth (--?--) circa 1728. I cannot find a marriage record as of 14 Nov 2020.2

     George Stovall married Elizabeth Landon between 1755 and 1756. She was his second wife and the mother of Bartholomew, Rachel, Martha, Anne, James, George Jr. and Dorothy.2,3

     "Although George was too old to serve in the American Revolution, he furnished supplies, and ferried soldiers and equipment across the James River, and received pay for this after the War was over. A list of his supplies can be found in the Virginia Public Service Claims, Bedford County Court Book, List, and Certificate; and the Campbell County Commissioner's Book:
     Bedford County, Virginia:
     March 1, 1781; 8 bushes corn; 533 wt. hay furnished militia on their march to North Carolina. 2      bushels corn; 1 bushel oats
     June 15, 1781; 11 diets furnished British prisoners and their guards
     June 15, 1781; 3 beef cattle, 675 pounds; diets, forage and pasture. 3 beeves, 810 pounds
     July, 1781: bay horse, 6 or 7 years old, impressed by militia on its march to Richmond; 16 lbs.      bacon for Botetourt Militia on its way home from camp
     September 10, 1781; 3 beefs and 1 pk. corn
     December 5, 1781; ferriage for 146 men

     Campbell County, Virginia
     August 7, 1783; for diets furnished prisoners of war, for horses furnished in 1781, £6.73 each.

     His land has been located by a descendant, Sam Stovall. It can be found thusly: go north from Lynchburg on Highway 29 to Madison Heights, a suburb across the north side of the James River to Highway 622 which heads east, and follow it to Galt's Mill at Stovall Creek to the land of George., Jr. Across the James River is the land of George, Sr. Stovall Creek is on the north side of the Fluvanna (now James River) River between the Tye River (east) and North Rivers (west), 16 miles east of the Blue Ridge Mountain crest and just northy of Long Mountain going from the Tye River." There are numerous other records on file relating to George Stovall, Sr. I recommend the cited source for further information.4

     George Stovall left a will dated on 18 April 1786 in Campbell County, Virginia. George Stovall names his sons: Bartholomew; James; George Jr. (who was deceased so he must mean his second son, George); and, daughters: Rachel Turner; Martha, Anne and Dorothy. He also states that "the children I had by my former wife have already received their portions." He names his wife, Elizabeth. He names Henry Turner as his son-in-law.5,3

     George Stovall died before 7 December 1786 in Campbell County, Virginia.
     Find A Grave does not have a burial listing for him as of 23 Jan 2019.2

     His estate was probated on 7 December 1786 in Campbell County, Virginia.5,3

     On 30 December 1795, Henry Turner and co-executor, Elizabeth Stovall, of George Stovall's estate, sold to Sackville King of Campbell County, 44 acres for £50 on both sides of Stovall. The land was bounded by that of Wm. Galt; Stephen Ham; and where Stovall's mill formerly stood. Witnesses were: Wm. London; Jas. London; and Jas.

     He was evidently a Quaker as the date of his son's birth is recorded four times in Quaker records and he was cited seven times in 1661 and 1662 for not attending the Church of England.2

     George Stovall married Joan (--?--). I cannot find a marriage record for them, either in Quaker or other English records, but they are shown as married on the Quaker Register of Births for their son, Bartholomew.1

     George Stovall died before 8 November 1688 in Albury,1 and was buried on 8 November 1688 in Albury, Surrey, England.1

     George M. Stovall was born in April 1780, son of Bartholomew Stovall and Sarah Turner.1

     George M. Stovall married Nancy Dickerson. I absolutely could not find a marriage record in Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky OR North Carolina for this couple as of 14 Aug 2016.2

     I found several possible marriages in Virginia, but none with a Nancy Dickerson: Sarah Oblesby, 9 Apr 1804 in Campbel County; but the rest were too early or the 7 Oct 1820 in Powhaten County to Catharine P. Reat, too late.

     I believe him to be George Stovall who was on the Tax List for 1810 in Capt. Blakemore's Company (as was his father) at Sumner County, Tennessee.3

Rachel Stovall's Parentage

     George, Rachel's great-grandfather was evidently a Quaker as the date of his son's birth is recorded four times in Quaker records and he was cited seven times in 1661 and 1662 for not attending the Church of England.

     George's son, Bartholomew's birth (Rachel's grandfather) is recorded four times in the Quaker records of Guilford, Surreyshire, England and can be found in the Library of the Religious Society of Friends, Friends' House, Euston Road, London, England. The name is spelled both Stowell and Stouell, but The General Index to Surrey Archaelogical Collection shows the name as Stowell, Stovald, Stovolde, Stovoll, Stovall, Stouell, and Stovale.

     "In the Guildford Muniment Room, Castle Arch, Guilford, Surrey, England, the Albury (Surry) parish register shows he was baptized when he was eighteen years of age. It is possible that Bartholomew left the Quakers and allowed himself to be baptized in the Church of England so that he might obtain permission to emigrate to America.

     In 1684 Batholomew Stouell, son of George Stowell age about 21 years, of Alborough, signs up to serve as a husbandman (farmer) for a term of four years in return for his passage to Virginia, on the ship BOOTH, Captain Peter Pagan, Master, as shown on the Middlesex Quarter Sessions Records, Middlesex Guildhall, Westminister, London, England - Indenture - No. A-628, at v. 12, page 379. In 1690 a Richard Kennon received 8,000 acres of land for all the emigrants he had brought to Virginia, and for the year 1684 there was a 'Barth. Stowell' listed. A search for sixty years after 1684 in the Virginia records does not show any person with the name of Stowell.

     On August 6, 1693, in Henrico County, Virginia, a 'Lycense for Mariage' was issued to Bar. Stovall and Ann Burton, surety being Ann's stepfather, John Steward, as shown in the Henrico County Virginia Deeds, Wills, etc. 1688-1697, page 435. The Annals of Henrico Parish and Old St. John's Church, page 226 record the marriage of But. Stovall with Ann Burton on August 8, 1693. All Episcopal burials prior to 1741 are said to have been made at Jamestown, so they are probably buried there.

     The rent rolls of 1704 lists Bartholomew Stovall with 100 acres. On August 16, 1715, Bartho Stovall received 318 acres of land by patent on the south side of the James River on Deep Creek. His home site at the time of his death is in Powhatan County, Virginia about five to ten miles north of the town of Powhatan."

     There are numerous deed records, but the majority of deeds after his death seem to be in Goochland County, Virginia. For further information on Bartholomew and his family I strongly recommend reading the beautifully researched book mentioned as my source.

     Rachel's father, George Stovall, "was too old to serve in the American Revolution, he furnished supplies, and ferried soldiers and equipement across the James River, and received pay for this after the War was over. A list of his supplies can be found in the Virginia Public Service Claims, Bedford County Court Book, List, and Certificate; and the Campbell County Commissioner's Book:
     Bedford County, Virginia:
               March 1, 1781; 8 bushes corn; 533 wt. hay furnished militia on their march to North Carolina. 2 bushels corn; 1 bushel oats
               June 15, 1781; 11 diets furnished British prisoners and their guards
               June 15, 1781; 3 beef cattle, 675 pounds; diets, forage and pasture. 3 beeves, 810 pounds
               July, 1781: bay horse, 6 or 7 years old, impressed by militia on its march to Richmond; 16 lbs. bacon for Botetourt Militia on its way home from camp
               September 10, 1781; 3 beefs and 1 pk. corn
               December 5, 1781; ferriage for 146 men

          Campbell County, Virginia
          August 7, 1783; for diets furnished prisoners of war, for horses furnished in 1781, £6.73 each.

     His land has been located by a descendant, Sam Stovall. It can be found thusly: go north from Lynchburg on Highway 29 to Madison Heights, a suburb across the north side of the James River to Highway 622 which heads east, and follow it to Galt's Mill at Stovall Creek to the land of George., Jr. Across the James River is the land of George, Sr. Stovall Creek is on the north side of the Fluvanna (now James River) River between the Tye River (east) and North Rivers (west), 16 miles east of the Blue Ridge Mountain crest and just northy of Long Mountain going from the Tye River."

     There are numerous other records on file relating to George Stovall, Sr. I recommend the cited source for further information.3
     Rachel Stovall was born circa 1762, daughter of George Stovall and Elizabeth Landon, in Bedford County, Virginia Colony.4

     Rachel was the granddaughter of the original emigrant, Bartholomew Stovall. Her brother, Bartholomew, married Henry's sister, Sarah Turner.3

     Rachel married Henry Turner, son of Terisha Turner and Sarah (--?--), on 31 March 1777 in Bedford County, Virginia. A marriage record cannot be found in Bedford County records (not as indexed or in images) on FamilySearch or on Ancestry.com as of 1 Mar 2021.5,6,7

     On 18 April 1786, George Stovall names his sons: Bartholomew; James; George Jr. (who was deceased so he must mean his second son, George); and, daughters: Rachel Turner; Martha, Anne and Dorothy. He also states that "the children I had by my former wife have already received their portions." He names his wife, Elizabeth. He names Henry Turner as his son-in-law.8,2

     On 30 January 1812, she is named Rachel Turner in her mother's will of this date.9

     On 28 September 1828, she is named in her husband's will of this date.10

     Rachel's husband, Henry, died in Oct 1829 with his will probated in November.10

     On 20 December 1833, Stephen B. Turner, Lawson Turner and Sally his wife, George S. Turner and Rachel Turner conveyed to Jesse Mundy for $535.50 a track of land lying on both sides of Porridge Creek and containing by recent survey 119 acres beginning at Poplar Bush on the south side of Porridge Creek in the dividing line between the said Jesse Mundy and Henry Turner heirs . . . . (complicated land survey description) in Amherst County, Virginia.11

     On 12 September 1834, Stephen B. Turner, Lawson Turner, George S. Turner and Rachael Turner conveyed to Jesse Mundy for $2,355 a tract of land containing 471 acres beginning at the mouth of Jumping Branch on the south side of Porrige Creek and meanders adjoining the land of James London decd. etc. in Amherst County, Virginia.12

     On 6 January 1848, Rachel made a deed of gift to her son, Stephen B. Turner, consisting of a female slave at Pike County, Missouri.13

     Rachel Turner left a will dated on 13 August 1848 in Pike County, Missouri. In Rachel Turner's will of this date, she names her sons: Stephen B Turner; George S Turner; Lawson Turner; James S Turner; Terisha Turner; and grandson George B Turner; daughters-in-law Margaret Turner; Pocahantes Turner; and daughters: Nancy Carver; Polley Omohundro; and Ruth Stone.

     Rachel asked that her Negro woman Sharlotte have the privilege of selecting either of my sons Stephen B. or George S Turner as her master. She asks that her daughter-in-law Margaret receive the sum of $20 and her daughter-in-law Pocahantes received the sum of $10.

     She requested that Stephen B. Turner pay her Doctors Bill and funeral expenses as I ahve given him my Negro woman Mary for that purpose. She bequeathed to him one new white counterpain() one bed quilt and one yarn ?. Stephen was to pay Nancy Carver the sum of $50; Polley Omohondro the sum of $50; and Ruth Stone the sum of $50.

     Rachel also stated it was her will and desire that the amount of money Lawson Turner is owning me shall remain in his hand and that he shall never be made to pay it to the balance of my children.

     She bequeathed one feather bed and furniture to her son George S. Turner. She asked that the remainder of my household and kitchen furnitute be sold and the proceeds be equally divided between my three sons: James S Turner, Terisha Turner and Lawson Turner and her grandson George B Turner.

     She appointed Stephen B. Turner and George S. Turner as executors of her will which was witnessed by Thos. R. Vaughn and Reuben H. Carver.14

     On 13 June 1849, Rachel applied for her husband's Revolutionary War pension in Pike County, Missouri. It was denied because it lacked the proof required by the pension law at that time. The first two pages are the original pages from their family Bible listing the children's birth dates. The complete file on Fold3 contains a number of pages from this Bible.

Stovall swore that he "became acquainted with Henry Turner and Rachel his wife about the year 1800 - That he knew the said Henry & Rachel Turner up to the time of the death of the former in 1829 - that they lived together as man and wife and were reputed to have been lawfully married - That he has known Rachel Turner during the whole period of time from the year 1800 up to the present time and that she has never married since the death of her husband Henry Turner - That at the time of his becoming acquainted with the family he went to school with some of the children - knew all the children living at that time and believes that two of them were twenty years old and upwards."

     John Smith made a similar deposition on the same day, swearing that he knew them from 1808, to the marriage between Henry and Rachel and her widowhood. A similar deposition was taken from Spencer D. Norvell who'd known them since 1800.

     As executor of the estate of Rachel Turner, Stephen B. Turner swore to "the said Henry Turner was in his lifetime a Revolutionary soldier in the Virginia Line in the army of the Revolution and that he always understood that his father the said Henry turner was an officer in said army and he thinks the said Henry Turner was a captain. That he has often heard his mother the same Rachel Turner state that when men were drafted they would come to his Father to get off and he Henry Turner would tell them that he could not let them off. Sayes (sic) he has also heard his mother tell of his father being sick while in the service & getting a furlow and coming home. That his parents were married in Bedford County now Campbell County in the State of Virginia about the year (1777) seven hundred and Seventy Seven in the customary way of marrying at that time which was to publish them in church and a second kept on church Books. States that his father died in Amherst County in the state of Virginia 9 miles from Lynchburgh on the 23rd day of October 1829 leaving the said Rachel his widow. That the said Rachel Turner Applied for Revolutionary pension as the widow of the said Henry Turner (decd.) But died on the 4th day of January (1850) eighteen hundred and fifty without ever having been allowed a pension leaving this Affiant Terisha Turner, Henry Turner, James S. Turner, Nancy B. Carver, Ruthee Stone, Mary E. Omohundro, Lawson Turner, and George S. Turner her children by the said Henry Turner (decd) and her only surviving children. That Terasha (sic) Turner has since (died) leaving four children & that he is the executor of his mother. He makes this declaration on behalf of himself and the other surviving children for the purpose of obtaining the pension due his said mother at the time of her decease under the acts of Congress 4th July 1836 - 7th July 1838 . ."

     The claim was not allowed as proof of service as required by the pension laws was not furnished.15

     Rachel Turner died on 4 January 1850 in Pike County, Missouri.
     Find A Grave does not have a burial listing for her as of 2 Jan 2019.16,17

     Her estate was probated on 4 February 1850 in Pike County, Missouri.14

     On 3 June 1850, a notice was printed in the local newspaper that Stephen B. Turner had obtained from the Pike County Court letters of administration with the will annexed on the estate of Rachel Turner, dec'd, bearing (this date). All persons having claims against said estate are requested to present them within one year from the date of said letters; and if not presented within three years from said date, they will forever be precluded from the benefits of said estate.18

Suddarth Family

     "The Suddarth family lived within twenty miles of Thomas Jefferson, owning a big home that still stands today. It has a grand double staircase going to bedrooms containing fireplaces and balconies. There is a big kitchen in the basement where the slaves cooked the meals."

     "The Suddarth family owned a mill on the Hardware River nearby."3

     According to Rev. Edgar Woods, "William and James Suddarth were early settlers in the county. They were undoubtedly brothers. They and their descendants were located on the south fork of Hardware, between the Cross Roads and Covesville. Previous to 1750, William bought from Abraham Venable three hundred acres of a tract of fifteen hundred which Venable had patented in 1735 in that vicinity. In the year first named, William exchanged two hundred acres with James, for the same quantity which James had purchased from the same tract. William seems to have died before 1768, as at that time Lawrence Suddarth, apparently his son and representative, conveyed to James the other hundred acres of William's purchase from Venable. Lawrence was a resident of Amherst, but subsequently settled in Albemarle, on Green Creek. His wife's name was Martha, and he died in 1815."

     "James died in 1800, and left at least three children, William, James, and Mildred, the wife of JohnTurner. These brothers lived near where the present Lynchburg Road crosses the south fork of Hardware, a mill known as Suddarth's Mill having conspicuously marked that locality for many years. In 1830 William was assessed with more than thirteen hundred acres of land. He died in 1832. It is said his wife was Martha Sumter, and his children were William H., James, Sarah, the wife of Robert Porterfield, Martha, the wife of Richard Littleford, Richard P., who married Martha Morris, and whose daughter Sarah was the wife of Henry Darrow, Nancy, the wife of George Paris, Elizabeth, the wife of John W. Dettor, and Mildred, the wife of William Page. His brother James married Jane, daughter of John Randolph. He died about 1850, and his children were James, Randolph, William T., Mary, the wife of David Hicks, Patience, the wife of Rice Oaks, Thomas, John and Benjamin."4
     James Suddarth was born in 1720.5
     He also is reported to have been born in 1732.6

     James Suddarth married Patience Sumpter.2

     On 2 December 1801, "James Suddearth, Senr. to William Weathered, both of Albemarle County, Virginia, $200 for 170 acres at Sumner County, Tennessee. Witnesses were: John Pleasants, Benj F. Dowell, Nelson Williams. Acknowledged in Albemarle County, Virginia by Alexander Garrett, Clerk of the Court, and certified by William D. Meriweather, oldest Justice of peace of sd county."7

     James Suddarth died in 1800 in Albemarle County, Virginia. I do not see how he could have died in 1800 when he deeded land in 1801.8,6,7

Erroneous Information About Mildred's Mother

     "Mildred's grandmother, Elizabeth Patience, had a very interesting life. I am inserting the story of both her grandmother and mother here:"

     "There is a family tradition about Elizabeth Patience which I am setting down, as I received it from a descendant, Terri Chesney. "Elizabeth had been a very beautiful young woman and was born about 1690 - 1695 in England, probably in London. Her family was very prominent and wealthy during the reign of Queen Anne. She was raised with the best education and training her family could provide and had beautiful clothes. She moved in the circles of the wealthy and important. Her family were religious, for years later, they sent her a book about being close to Jesus."

     "When Elizabeth was nineteen, she had a suitor that was interested in marrying her and whom her family wished her to marry. She probably would have married him, had she not met a handsome man with whom she fell in love. He was a commoner and did not move in her circles and her family did everything possible to keep the two apart. "

     "He decided to leave England to try and better himself in America. Elizabeth very much wanted to go with him. Her parents, afraid that she might try to leave with him, kept her under lock and key. One day, when they were out to dinner, she was left in the care of servants. Still locked in her room, Elizabeth talked one servant into helping her escape. The servant had given her word that she would not unlock the door, so Elizabeth threw her feather bed out the window. The servant put a few more feather beds with it and the desperate Elizabeth jumped from her window on the second story onto the feather bed."

     "She was not injured in the jump and it can be assumed that she had thrown a bag with a few possessions and whatever money she had saved down first. She met her love, they married and were soon on a ship to America. However, he became very ill at sea and died during the voyage. Elizabeth found herself suddenly alone, with no friends and no money with which to take care of herself. She found herself among sickly, poor people with rough manners."

     "She arrived in Virginia without anywhere to go and knowing no one to whom she could turn in her distress. The Captain of the ship introduced her to a friend of his who happened to be on the wharf area when the ship docked. His name was William Sumpter. He had arrived a few years previously, working off his passage for the family who had paid for his trip. He married Elizabeth and tried to take care of her."

     "The next few years were very hard for her. She lived in a very small, rough log cabin. One of her children, a little boy whom she named Thomas, later grew up to become an important General in the American Revolution. When he was born, she is quoted as saying to the midwife who attended her, 'Oh, what will become of my poor son. I have nothing to put into his mouth (indicating she had no silver spoon). No way to care for him." The midwife is said to have comforted her by telling her to put her trust in God who doesn't make children He can't take care of.'"

     "Elizabeth had five or six children and became known widely for her nursing skills among the women in the community. She was known for getting up in the middle of the night to help her neighbors no matter how cold or bad the weather. She later taught her only daughter, Patience, the same nursing skills. Both she and her daughter, Patience, were recommended by Thomas Jefferson to his daughter, Mrs. Eppes, for their nursing skills."

     "When she was very old, Elizabeth went to live with her daughter, Patience, and helped with her grand and great-grandchildren. She liked to gather them around her rocking chair, reading the Bible and telling stories to them. She often told them to obey their parents as her disobedience when she was young caused all her early troubles. When it came time for Elizabeth's earthly life to end, she awoke one morning very early and called to her daughter, 'Patience, the Master calls for me!' She died immediately after speaking these words. She was said to 111 years of age when she died."3 Nearly every word of the above is incorrect.
     
     "The Draper manuscript, written in the 1800's about events in the Priddy area of Virginia (said to be near where Terisha held land) mentions the Sumpter family. This is the source of the stories about the Elizabeth and her daughter. The stories also were passed down verbally within the family. This manuscript is available in a number of libraries."3 The Draper manuscript does not appear to be the source for the stories of Elizabeth and her daughter, Patience.

     "Her daughter, Patience (Mildred's mother), married James Suddarth. The Suddarth family lived within twenty miles of Thomas Jefferson, owning a big home that still stands today. It has a grand double staircase going to bedrooms containing fireplaces and balconies. There is a big kitchen in the basement where the slaves cooked the meals. The Suddarth family owned a mill on the Hardware River nearby. Patience was a much loved and respected midwife in Albemarle County. Thomas Jefferson recommended her, as well as her mother, to his daughter, Mrs. Eppes, when she was sick."3 Patience was not recommended by Thomas Jefferson to his daughter.

     To read more about Patience Sumpter's life, go to her ID#2505.4
     Mildred Suddarth was born, daughter of James Suddarth and Patience Sumpter, in Albemarle County, Virginia Colony.5
     She was also known as Milley.

     Mildred married John Turner, son of Terisha Turner and Sarah (--?--), in 1770 in Virginia Colony.6,7

     Circa 1790, John and Millie moved to Tennessee.5

     John and Mildred moved in Sumner County, Tennessee, possibly before 14 Nov 1797 when John Turner, Jurat, witnessed a deed between Andrew Steel and Shadrack Nye. John and Milly did not sell their Virginia property until 1803.8

     Mildred Turner died in 1807 at Rocky Creek, Sumner County, Tennessee
     Several Suddarth genealogists record that she died c1817 in Sumner County; others say she died after 1820 there.

     Find A Grave does not have a burial listing for her as of 19 Jan 2019.9,10

     On 16 October 1873, Louisa B. Turner Locke wrote a letter to the historian Lyman S. Draper from Hartsville, Trousdale County, Tennessee, in which she provided detailed information about her father (James Turner), grandparents (John Turner and Millie Suddarth), aunts (Sally Caffrey, Mary Read, and Elizabeth Tinsley), uncles (Terisha Turner, William Turner), and sister (Mary A. Tinsley). She also states that Samuel S. Turner was the son of her uncle Terisha Turner. She even comments on "old Aunt Lyon" who died in Carthage, Tennessee at a very old age. I am unsure exactly who this old aunt is.7

     On 2 December 1873, Mary Ann Tinsley wrote a letter to Lyman S. Draper on this date in which she references her sister, Louisa B. Locke, and a deceased brother, John G. Turner who resided in Sumner County, Tennessee. She states her grandmother was Milley Suddarth who married John Turner in Albemarle County, Virginia and later moved to Sumner County. Mary thinks Milley died there in 1809 or 1810. Mary also mentions Milley's sister, Agnes Suddarth, who married Francis Weathered and moved to Sumner County. She states that her own father was James S. Turner and that his sister Elizabeth married Moses Tinsley. Mary then states she married Isaac T. Tinsley, son of Elizabeth and Moses Tinsley (making Isaac her first cousin). Finally, she mentions her cousin Sumpter Turner who lived in New Orleans.5
