Last Edited17 May 2021
     Pleasant Alonzo Vickers was born on 11 March 1878 in Texas. He was the son of James L Vickers, 41 years of age, born Jun 1858 in Texas, married for twenty-three years to Eliza A. Mansfield, born Sep 1858 in Illinois, who has borne nine children of whom six are living.3,2,4
     He was also known as Ples Lon.5

     Pleasant, 22, married Elma Turner, 21, daughter of Robert John Turner and Nancy Ann Franks, on 13 June 1900 in Atascosa County, Texas.1

     Pleasant registered for the draft on 12 September 1918 at Atascosa County, Texas. He was 40 years of age, a Clerk in the District Court, and lived in Jourdanton. He was described as tall with a slender build, light brown eyes and dark hair.

     Due to a need for men to serve during World War I, the United States instituted a draft. Obviously, not everyone who was registered for the draft was drafted or served in the military.

     With no end in sight for the end of World War I, a third and final registration law was instituted which now included all men between the ages of 18 and 45 which added younger men that the previous registrations laws and an older group of men born between 1873 and 1900, meaning he had to register.6

     Prior to his death, he was a Justice of the Peace.5

     Pleasant Alonzo Vickers died of a Coronary Occulusion after breaking his hip on 22 January 1956 at age 77 in Pleasanton, Atascosa County, Texas,2,5 and was buried in Pleasanton City Cemetery, Pleasanton, Atascosa County, Texas.2

     Johann Daniel Warlick was born circa 1710 in present-day Germany.3,4
     He was also known as Daniel.4

     Johann Daniel Warlick emigrated on 19 August 1729 from present-day Germany on the ship Morton House arriving in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Colony, on this date. The Mortonhouse sailing from Rotterdam, is described as last stopping at Cowes from whence it sailed on 21 Jun. Its Commander was John Coultas. Total number of passengers on the voyage was 122 persons. The name was written by clerks as John Daniel Worley; he did not write his own name.5,6

     He settled Trappe, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania Colony, formerly called Philadelphia County, living there until 1784.3

     On 6 February 1733, Johan Daniel was a sponsor at the baptism of Johan Daniel, son of Fredrich Marsteller, by Rev. Johann Caspar Stover in Trappe Church, Trappe, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania Colony. I am puzzled by this because the church was built between 1743 and 1754. It is the oldest unchanged Lutheran church building in the US in continuous use by the same congregation. It's possible there was an earlier church in the same location.7,8,9

     Daniel Warlick married Maria Margaretha (--?--) circa 1735. Daniel was about 25 years of age when he married Maria Margaretha.

     I have been unable to find a marriage record for them as of 17 Nov 2020.4,10

     Circa October 1738, he obtained land in Oley Township, now in Berks County, Pennsylvania Colony.3

     Daniel married Maria Barbara Schindler circa 1746 in Pennsylvania Colony. Daniel was about 36 years of age when he married Barbara who was about 26.11,4,12

     Beginning in 1748-49, a major migration of Germans and Swiss from Pennsylvania into the Carolinas occurred.

     Daniel (and Dietrich Ramsour) advertised their Oley Valley plantations for sale during the early 1750's. Daniel speculated heavily in land, but probably did not move his family until after selling his Pennsylvania farm.13

     In 1750, he built a corn mill on the site of one burned by Indians which was burned during the Revolution.14

     "Warlick's Mill also dates from shortly after Daniel Warlick's arrival in North Carolina. At least one source dates the mill from 1750. While this date maybe a little early, the mill was in operation at least by the middle to late 1750's."15

     On 27 September 1750, he was issued a total of five land grants totaling 2,300 acres by the Colony of North Carolina.3 A better-researched article states on this date, Daniel took out three warrants for a total of 900 acres.16

     "At a council held in New Bern [on 27 Sep 1750], petitioners for land warrants were Matthew Closes/Claus, John Chegal/Seigle, Samuel Howard and Daniel Warlick for 400 acres each."17

     On 28 March 1751, the Council of State granted him four grants of land totaling 2,460 acres, giving him a grand total of 4,760 acres. He received additional land later in Lincoln and Burke Counties, North Carolina.18

     The cited more carefully-researched article states he received patent for 200 acres on this date.16

     28 Mar 1751, "Daniel Warlick petitions for 1,000 acres, 200 acres, 1000 acres, and 260 acres all in Anson (but on the west side of the Catawba as crown patents show)." North Carolina Crown Patent B 15:29 of this date shows 200 acres on north side of the south fork of the Catawba River joining Beason's line which was issued and recorded 30 May 1754.19

     In 1753, he sold his Pennsylvania Colony land.20

     Eaker believes he speculated heavily in land, but did not bring his family to the North Carolin Coloony until he sold his Pennsylvania farm.21

     On 3 September 1753, he received a patent for 1,000 acres.16

     On 19 February 1754, he entered 600 more acres next to his 1,000 acre grant.16

     On 10 June 1754, he had 880 acres surveyed in the same general area. In other words, Daniel was a major land owner by 1754 owning 1,200 acres with the probability of adding 800 more acres.16

     In 1769, Johan Daniel and his wife, Anna Barbara, conveyed many tracts of land at Lincoln County, North Carolina Colony,to his children. The land was originally in Tryon County, but in 1779 the section in which Daniel owned land became Lincoln County.14,22

     In 1769, the Colonial Assembly appointed the following Commissioners to contract for building a county court house, prison and stocks for Tryon County and to levy a tax of 2 shillings on each taxable poll to pay for it: Thomas Neel, Henry Clark, William Yancey, Daniel Warlick, Jacob Forney, John Gordon, and William Watson (probably William Watson of Fishing Creek). Ezekiel Polk was the first clerk of court.23

     On 19 August 1769, Daniel and Barbara, his wife, conveyed 200 acres of land to Nicholas Warlock; 50 acres to Martin Shooford; 260 acres to Frederick Wise; and, 200 acres to Henry Hiltebrand at Tryon County, North Carolina Colony.24

     He is also reported to have died on 16 December 1769 at Lincoln County, North Carolina Colony. However, he can't have conveyed land AND died on the same day; this does not make sense.12

     On 16 December 1769, Daniel and Barbara, his wife, conveyed 227 acres and 260 acres of land to Valentine Warlock; 400 acres to Elizabeth Warlock; 252 acres to David Ramsour; 400 acres to Philip Warlock; 200 acres to Barbara Warlock; and, 191 acres to Martin Shooford. On 20 Dec 1769, they deeded another 200 acres to Nicholas Warlock - all in Tryon County.24

     It is obvious that Daniel was disposing of his estate by deed conveyance rather than by leaving a will.

     Daniel Warlick died intestate before April 1772 in Lincoln County, North Carolina Colony.25,26

     In April 1772, Nicholas Warlock, Administrator on the Estate of Daniel Warlock, deceased, returned an Inventory of the said Estate and requested an Order of Sale which was granted at Tryon County, North Carolina Colony.27

     Johann Daniel Warlick's estate was inventoried in July 1772 in the amount of £1101, 17 shillings, and 5 pence by his son, Nicholas. This was a large estate.28

     He was buried in Daniels Church Cemetery, Lincoln County, North Carolina Colony.12

     In October 1772, at this term of court, Nicholas Warlock, Administrator of the Estate of Daniel Warlock, deceased, returned an additional account of Sales of the Estate of the said Daniel Warlock, deceased, to the amount of £8, one shilling which was ordered to be put on record at Tryon County, North Carolina Colony.29

The Relationship Betweeen Colonel John Washington and President George Washington

     How does this man relate to our famous president: Colonel John Washington's son, Major Lawrence Washington, was the father of Augustine Washington who was the father of President George Washington. This makes President George Washington my second cousin, 8 times removed.
     Colonel John Washington was born in 1634, son of Rev. Lawrence Washington and Amphillis Twigden. His approximate date of birth is based on the fact that in order to administer the estate of his father, he had to be at least 21 years of age. Other sites place him born in 1632 (before his parents married which is unlikely) or 1633. I believe 1634 to be a reasonable year of birth for him.3,4

     On 18 June 1635, Andrew Knowling's will of this date names a son-in-law, William Roades, and three daughters-in-law (probably step-daughters): Elizabeth Fitzherbert, Susan Billing, deceased, and Amphillis Washington.

     Andrew Knowling left his freehold lands in Tring to Lawrence Washington, son of Amphillis. He also named John, William, Elizabeth, Margaret, and Martha, five other children of hers and appointed John Dagnall of Gove, in the parish of Tring, yeoman, his overeseer.

     The parish register of Tring reveals that the father of these children was Mr. Lawrence Washington. University records reveal that there was only one Mr. Lawrence Washington, Master of Arts, alive in England and he was the Fellow of Brasenose College, Oxford.5

     In 1640, he was enrolled in a prestigious education program at Sutton's Hospital in London based on a nomination by King Charles I of England.1

     Circa 1654, after his mother's death, he went to London, probably taking his brother, Lawrence, with him.1

     In 1656, already married for the first time, he sailed for Virginia as mate and voyage partner of Edward Prescott, owner of the Sea Horse of London. His first wife died sometime prior to his marriage to Ann Pope.1,6,7

     On 21 January 1655/56, he witnessed a Power of Attorney from Ed Streator to John Sharpe. Recorded 17 Jun 1656 at Lancaster County, Virginia Colony.8

     On 8 February 1655/56, John Washington swore to the administration of his mother's estate as the eldest and lawful son of Amphillis Washington late of Tring in the Couty of Hertford dec'd.

     "February 1655 The Eighth day Lres of adcon yssued forth to John Washington the nrall and lawfull sone of Amphillis Washington late of Tring in the County of Hertford decd to adster the goodes Chells and debtes of the said decd Hee beeing first sworne truly to adster &c." Admon. Act Book (P. C. C.), 42.9

     In 1657, "the English merchantman Seahorse, out of London, foundered in the Potomac River after leaving Colonial Nathaniel Pope's wharf. The Seahorse was refloated and brought into Mattox Creek for repairs. The ship's Second Officer was John Washington. Washington was quartered at Colonel Nathaniel Pope's while the Seahorse was being repaired. When the Seahorse was ready to sail again, John Washington decided to remain in the Virginia colony, in order to be near Pope's daughter, Anne."

     "John prevailed on Edward Prescott, the master and part owner of the Seahorse, to release him from further service in order that he might remain in the Northern Neck of Virginia. He also demanded payment of his wages. Prescott countered that Washington owned him money and was partly resposible for the damage done to the vessel. He threatened to have John arrested and imprisoned." Nathaniel Pope offered to act as security for his bond in beaver skins. It is unknown if there was an actual lawsuit, but Prescott sailed away and Washington remained. This was not the end of the bad relations between the men, however.10

On 20 May 1657 the following interrogatories were recorded in Westmoreland County:

     20 May 1657 This Answere of Mr Meares was recorded.12

     John Washington married Ann Pope, daughter of Colonel Nathaniel Pope and Lucy Fox, on 1 December 1658 at Mattox, Westmoreland County, Virginia Colony. He was in the same regiment as her father and was a Major at that time.

     According to the Washington Parish history, "as a wedding gift, Colonel Nathaniel Pope gave them a 700 acre tract of land on Bridge's Creek."13,14,15,16,2

     Circa 1660, John's brother, Lawrence, had joined him in the Virginia Colony.17

     In 1661, Appomattox Parish was created and a new church was built near the mouth of Mattox Creek. John Washington and Andrew Monroe were among the first vestrymen of the parish.14

     In July 1662, he became a justice and member of the county court. About the same time, he was commissioned a major in the militia and rose to lieutenant colonel.17

     In 1664, John and Ann "moved four miles eastward on Bridges Creek."10

     In 1664, by this year, John Washington's plantation was prospering. He was elected a Burgess and had become actively involved in the affairs of the parish and county (Westmoreland). Only nine years after his arrival, Appomattox Parish's name was changed to Washington Parish in his honor, making this the first geographical division in America to be named after a Washington.18 (Stafford County was formed from Westmoreland County)

     The major part of Lt. Colonel Washington's landholdings was in Westmoreland County. However, his largest single acquisition was up the Potomac on Little Hunting Creek. This was involved, being a joint venture with Nicholas Spencer, Secretary of the Colony, for 5,000 acres, eighty percent of which had represented an unseated grant to Colonel Richard Lee. This was to become the site of Mount Vernon.19

     Colonel John Washington left a will dated on 21 September 1665 at Westmoreland County, Virginia Colony, in which he requested "To be buried on plantation where I live by the side of my wife yt is already dead and two children of mine. To my eldest sonne ____ by my father Pope made over to me. To son Lawrence 5000 acres (my share of land) in Stafford Co. taken up by me and Col. Nicho Spencer, other land on Rosiers Cr., etc. To son John W. land where I live purchased of David Anderson, land at head of Rappanock dr. etc. Wife her thirds for life; Ann Washington daughter a diamond ring. Bro. Thomas Pope; sister ____ ten pounds I have in England. Bro Lawrence Washington and wife Mrs. Anne Washington."

     A further endorsement, but in a different hand, is also on the back:- "Recorded in ye County records of Westmoreland Co ye 10 Jan'y 1677.

     The original of the above will of John Washington, the emigrant ancestor of President Washington, was preserved among the General's papers at Mount Vernon. After the sale of the estate in 1858 to Ladies Mount Vernon Association of the Union, the papers and other relics were removed by the owner. Some of them were exhibited at the United States National Museum at Washington, for a few weeks, in January 1891, but were removed in February to be sold. A catalogue was prepared and printed, and on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, April 21st, 22nd, 23rd, 1891, the collection was sold at auction in Philadelphia by Thomas Birch's Sons. The relics brought very high prices. This will was sold to a Mr. Collins for $700.

     A facsimile of this original will, full size, showing it to be entirely in the handwriting of Colonel John Washington, is owned by the present writer. The will was written when the testator was encamped before the Indian fort, called the Susquehannah Fort, then in Stafford County, Virginia, awaiting the arrival of the Indian Chiefs with whom he had been commissioned by the Governor and Council of Virginia, to treat as to the matter of Peace or War.20,21

     In 1666, he was elected to the House of Burgesses and reelected in 1677.22,23

     In 1675, he commanded the troops as Colonel, in an expedition against the Indians. "His orders were carried into effectwithi such a display of cruelty and treachery, as to call out a condemnation from the Governor.25

     John married Frances Appleton on 20 March 1676. She was the widow of Jn. Appleton when she married Washington.16,26,27

     On 14 April 1676, a letter from Phi. Lanyon at Plymouth to Sir Joseph Wiliamson enclosed a list of ships. "The ship from Virginia reports that Colonel Washington commanded a body who met the Indians; he fought them, beat them and drove them to their garrison which he took, and put all in it to the sword."28

     On 4 August 1676, Nathaniel Bacon ordered Colonel John Washington to enroll for voluntary service all housekeepers and freeman capable of bearing arms under General Bacon. On the 5th, Bacon ordered Washington to take the oath and subscription to the "engagement" made on 3 August 1676 at the Middle Plantation by the Principal Gentlemen, from all freemen and householders.29

     After 1677, his sister, Martha, married Samuel Hayward, son of Nicholas Hayward.23

     In May 1677, letters of administration on his goods were granted in England:"Mense Maij 1677 tricesimo die Em' Com Edmundo Jones prineipali creditori Laurentii Washington nuper de Luton in Comitatu Bedford sed apud Virginia in partibus transmarinis deceden ad adstrand bona jura et credita dict deft de bene etc jurat.' - Admon. Act Book (P.C.C.)

     But, Lawrence is said to have died in September???30

     Colonel John Washington died before 26 September 1677 in Westmoreland County, Virginia Colony,31,32 and was buried in George Washington Birthplace National Monument, Latanes, Westmoreland County, Virginia Colony.32

     On 26 September 1677, in the Court of this date, reference is made to the executors or administrators of Col. Washington's estate. He was attending Court that summer, specifically in the June session.31

     His estate was probated on 10 January 1677/78 in Westmoreland County, Virginia Colony.20

     On 8 January 1682/83, upon the petition of Mr. Lawrence Washington with other concern'd in the estate of Coll.

     Lawrence Washington was born circa 1500. He was the eldest son.3

     Lawrence married Elizabeth (--?--) circa 1529. I cannot find a marriage record for them as of 16 Dec 2020 on either FamilySearch or Ancestry. But, on 24 Mar 1530/31 the Dean and Chapter of the College of St. Mary of the Newark, Leicester, demised the appropriate Rectory of Higham Ferrers with Cheveston and Caldecott for a term of 40 years, from the Feast of Invention of the Holy Cross next following, to Laurence Washington and Elizabeth, his wife, and their heirs and assigns.4,5

     Circa 1530, he left Warton for Northampton where he became Mayor of Northampton as well as the owner of various estates, including Higham Ferrers.1

     On 15 April 1532, he witnessed the will of Margaret Whelers, of All Hallows, Northampton, who made bequest 'to Master Wasyngton a gold ring."6

     Laurence was already a tenant of the Priory of St. Andrew in Northampton for some six years or longer before he was granted lands belonging to that Priory.7

     In 1539/40, he was granted lands in Sulgrave belonging to the Priory of St. Andrew in Northampton with certain other of their lands in Woodford, Stutesbury, and Cotton in the parish of Hardingston from King Henry VIII.7

     On 14 July 1539, Richard Morton, a worthy fellow citizen of Northampton, and possessor of certain "gardyns" in St. Giles' Street and in the Cowe Lane, which he left to the Collegiate Church of All Saints, desired that Laurence should be one of four "indifferent men," who should appraise his goods. He further bequeathed "to Mayster Wasyngton a gown furyd wyth foxe."8

     On 1 June 1541, Thomas Chipsey, a wealthy and benevolent grocer of Northampton founded the Free Grammar School there, naming Laurence Washington as an original trustee.9

     Lawrence married Amy Tomson, daughter of Robert Pargiter and Anne Knight, in 1543. I cannot find a marriage record for them as of 28 Nov 2020 on either FamilySearch or Ancestry.10,6

     In November 1557, he was named overseer of the will of T. Plumer, a husband-man of Sulgrave who gave "to the Highe Altar in Sulgrave Church iij yards of lynnen clothe, at xiid. the yard to make an altar clothe."11

     Lawrence Washington left a will dated on 18 October 1581 in Northamptonshire, England. Lawrence Washington's will names his brothers Leonard Washington and Thomas Washington. He names his son, Lawrence, and his son, Robert, his heir apparent, as well as Robert's son, Lawrence. He also names Walter Light.12

     Lawrence Washington died on 19 February 1583/849 and was buried in St. James the Less Churchyard, Sulgrave, South Northamptonshire Borough, Northamptonshire, England. Inscription:
     "Here lyeth buried ye bodys of Laurence Wasshingto Gent & Amee his
     wyf by whome he had issue iiij sons & vij daughts wc laurence Dyed ye day of
     ano 15 & Amee Deceassed the vi day of October ano Dni 1564."13,14

     His estate was probated on 11 February 1584 in Northamptonshire. I have no explanation for the probate date.12

     On 24 August 1584, the inquest taken after his death notes he held the manor in Sulgrave and lands in Woodford, Stutesbury, Cotton in the parish of Hardingston, Blakesley, and Pattishall, Ascote and Eastcote and in the town of Northampton which went to his heir, Robert, then age 40. The inquest further notes that Robert Washington, the son and heir of Laurence and Elizabeth Light, daughter and sole heiress of Walter Light.15

     Lawrence Washington was born in 1602. He was the fifth son and had seven brothers and nine sisters.1,3,4

     In 1619, "Washington was admitted to Brasenose College, Oxford."4

     On 16 May 1623, he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts, and was elected a Fellow of the College on 27 May 1623. In 1626 he was awarded a Master of Arts and in 1627 appointed university lector. He received a B. D. in 1634.5,4,6

     On 5 October 1630, Sir Richard Anderson of Pendly in the county of Hartford knight in his will of this date bequeathed to his "cousin" Larance Washington of Brasenose forth shillings. The will was proven 27 Aug 1632. Sir Richard seems to ahve been by far the most important parishioner then living in Tring.7

     On 25 August 1631, he was appointed as one of the replacement for two Proctors who had been "too Calvinistic" for King Charles I. In fact, his loyalty to the king may have made him a marked man.8

     On 26 August 1632, "the Archbishop of Canterbury, William Laud, made Washington proctor at Oxford. Laud sought to rid the university of its Puritan clergy, and Washington was instrumental in carrying out the archbishop's purges. Washington's services to Laud earned him an appointment to the well-compensated rectory of Purleigh in Essex, a position he assumed in 1632 to 1643.4

     On 14 March 1632/33, Lawrence was instituted fo Purleigh, on the presentation of Jane, widow of Thomas Horsmonden, D. D., the preceding rector.9

     Lawrence married Amphillis Twigden, daughter of John Twigden , of Little Creaton, Northamptonshire and Anne Dickens, in December 1633. She was the daughter and co-heiress of her father. "At the time of her marriage she resided in Tring with her mother and stepfather, Andrew Knowling."10

     During the English Civil War (1642-1648), King Charles was overthrown and a republic established.

     Rev. Washington was accused as a "Maglignant Royalist" and "oft drunk," and was ejected from his living as Rector of Purleigh, subsequently dying in poverty.

     The Washington family, who had been allied with the King, were forced out of their home at Sulgrave Manor after 120 years of ownership. Lawrence and Amphillis were forced to move to the lesser Parish of Little Braxted, Essex, along with their children.1

     In 1643, "Washington was censored on trumped-up charges of being 'a common frequenter of ale-houses' who '(encouraged) others in that beastly vice' and lost his benefice."4

     The real reason for his expulsion was his consistent and unfailing loyalty to his King. More than one witness testified to his worthiness, piety, moderate, and soberness.11

     "Following his ejection from Purleigh, Washington became rector of the impoverished parish of Little Braxted in Essex. Neither Amphilis nor their children accompanied him there, as they were given shelter by the family of Sir Edwin Sandys, sympathetic relations whose patriarch had served as treasurer in the Virginia Company. Through the Sandys, Lawrence's son John secured an apprenticeship with a London merchant where he learned the tobacco trade."4

     On 29 January 1649/50, "A Bond of John Dagnall, of Grove in the parish of Tring, in co. Herts, Yeoman, and William Roads of Middle Claydon, in co. Bucks., Gen., in the sum of one thousand pounds, for the administration of the goods &c. of Andrew Knowling, of Tring in the county of Herts., gen., lately deceased, with the will annexed, during the minority of Lawren Washington the younger, at that time of the age of fourteen years; also for their faithful conduct as guardians or curators of the said Lawrence Washington &c." His father, Lawrence, was a witness to this bond to protect the interests of his son. This bond is critical to the proof of this relationship and reads (in the original Latin):
Mdu qd 29 die Januarij Anno Dñu 1649 apud Whethamsted concessæ fuerunt Iræ.12

     Tring is both a parish and a market town in Hertfordshire, 28 miles west of Hertford. Luton is a town in Bedfordshire.

     Rev. Lawrence Washington died in January 1652/53 in poverty, leaving an estate of insufficient value to require the issuance of letters of administration.1,13

     Rev. Lawrence Washington was buried on 21 January 1652/53 in All Saints Churchyard, Maldon, Essex, England. "Three of Washington's children emigrated to Virginia, as did another family member, Sir Samuel Argall, whose widowed mother, Mary (d.1598), had married Washington's uncle, Lawrence Washington (d.1619) of Maidstone, Registrar of the Court of Chancery."

     This burial location is not geo-coded on Google Maps.4,14,15

The will was proven 29 Oct 1584 by which date Wiliam Pargetor was deceased. A will codicil names Robert Pargitor, his kynsman, to be an executor instead of William.7

     On 24 August 1584, the inquest taken after his death notes he held the manor in Sulgrave and lands in Woodford, Stutesbury, Cotton in the parish of Hardingston, Blakesley, and Pattishall, Ascote and Eastcote and in the town of Northampton which went to his heir, Robert, then age 40.

     In 1610, Robert and his eldest son, Laurence, sold Sulgrave. It would seem by arrangement with Robert's nephew, Laurence Makepeace, purchase of the estate, that Robert still dwelt in the manor house and continued to worship on Sundays in the seat where he "usually sat."2

He named his three other sons by his first wife: Christopher, William and Thomas, as well as the heirs of Lawrence, deceased. One of the witnesses was Christopher Pargiter.11,2,12
