William Copley 30

Anderson 7
George 5
Henry 3
John 10/12

and next door

George Copley 75
Susan 65

These were from the 1860 census. Several familiar names.

Milly's great granddaughter, Elizabeth Vickers Brintle, told me in the winter of 1986/87 that Milly is thought to have married either a Trice or a Green, that Milly's husband is thought to have died or disappeared on a trip to Fayetteville, and that Milly took back her maiden name. Mrs. Brintle's brother, Theodore B. Vickers, told me on 6 April 1995 that he knows nothing certain about Milly's husband, but guessed Milly's husband may have been a Rigsbee. Since in censuses Milly lived near David Jr., George W., and James and was about their age, I follow oral tradition and make her their sister.

There is also the possibility that Thomas Vickers (who appears in OCBD 24:48, 28 November 1831, as a trustee for T. Pickett in a debt to James Vickers) was a son of David Vickers, Sr., and the husband of Milly. If so, Milly was the daughter-in-law of David Vickers, Sr.

More evidence for placing Milly as daughter-in-law of David Vickers, Sr.: Claude Vickers (son of William Gaston Vickers) was interviewed on tape by Mack Lester Vickers , Jr. in 1976. Claude said Gaston Vickers and Atlas Rigsbee were first cousins and that Gaston's mother lived on what is now Hope Valley Road in Durham and is buried in Rigsbee Cemetery. (For printed interview, see DMH 3 August 1976.)

OCDB 40:173, 12 March 1870 , Atlas M. Rigsbee and wife Roeney sell to Thomas S. Vickers. OCDB 42:147, 23 September 1873, Gaston Vickers sells to John A. Vickers part of the old Rigsbee property joining Gaston Vickers, George W. Vickers, and others.

Note too that one of Milly's presumed brothers was George Washington Vickers, Sr., and that her youngest son was named Washington Marion Vickers.
ii. James VICKERS was born about 1805 in Orange County, NC. He died about 1869 in Orange County, NC.
iii. Mary VICKERS was born on January 9, 1810. She died on July 23, 1889. She was buried after July 23, 1889 in Rigsbee Cemetery, Duke University, Durham, NC.

136. Private Jesse RIGSBEE was born about 1760. He served in the military in September 1781 in NC. Served as a Private in Captain Allen's company of NC troops. In September, 1781, he was shot through the body in an engagement on the plantation of Lewis Kirk in Orange County and was allowed a pension, beginning with 5 September 1808, on account of disabliity. He died on October 19, 1827. He was buried after October 19, 1827 in Rigsbee Cemetery, Duke University, Durham, NC. If buried here, the grave is unmarked. He was married to Elizabeth PICKETT on July 13, 1801 in Orange County, NC. Some sources place the marriage in 1799 at the home of Wiliam Partin near Chapel Hill, NC. Bond Date

vi. Jesse Jackson RIGSBEE was born on June 22, 1808. He died on February 1, 1881. He was buried after February 1, 1881 in Rigsbee Cemetery, Duke University, Durham, NC. Mrs. Margaret (Egbert) Haywood related the following story the summer of 1980. Margaret's Aunt, an elderly descendant of the Rigsbees, was in Durham for medical treatment. Margaret took the aunt to visit the above listed graves and asked her why the family had left the graves marked with native rock instead of cut tombstones. The aunt told that after one of the last skirmishes between Confederate and union soldiers in this area some of the Rigsbee family members found the bodies of three Confederate soldiers in the woods. The bodies were in bad condition already. All their papers had been removed and only their Confederate uniforms gave any clue as to who they were. The Rigsbees washed the uniforms, put them back on the bodies and invited the preachers of all denominations in Durham to come out and conduct a proper funeral and burial. The aunt commented that what the Rigsbees had done 'wasn't anything special. They just hoped someone would do the same for their folks.'

Sons John (bef 1768) and Charles (bef 1771), I am unsure about, but chances are that they either died young or moved to Orange Co with their parents (due to the age they would have been at the time of the move.)

Son William went on to Georgia and died in Merriweather Co. GA in 1837. Son David married Elizabeth Gwinn in 1800. David Cozart was bondsman for surety. They had two sons who married Rhodes sisters.

Land in Johnston County


The chain bearer or chain carriers were in a very notable profession. They were deemed as honest and true. The were hired by a surveyor individually or, by general employment, worked with a particular surveyor as his employee/crew. When one needed acreage surveyed they would hire a surveyor and his crew to do the work or they would just hire the surveyor and engage their own noted chain bearer/carrier to work with the surveyor.

The chain bearer/carrier had HIS length of chain, 100 ft. or 66 ft. that was used in measuring out the acreage. An engineer's chain is 100' and a surveyor's chain is 66'. These chain lengths were 7.92 inches long (each link) for a surveyor's or Gunter's chain. The engineer's chain was generally wire rods, each one foot long, and this instrument was 100' long.

144 square inches = 1 square foot
9 square feet = 1 square yard
30-1/4 square yards = 1 square rod
160 square rods = 1 acre
640 acres = 1 square mile

7.92 inches = 1 link
100 links = 1 chain

The chain bearer/carrier counted out the lengths, the surveyor used a transom. This had to be a trustworthy job and responsibility because a lot of the time it was measuring between two pieces of property, and the one in the middle needed to be as accurate as possible to determine whether either side had infringed the original property's survey. He owned 456 acres on June 2, 1755 in Orange County, NC.19 This plan represents a tract of land surveyed for Wm Picket beginning at Parker's corner pine then running north 83 chains to the center of two hickorys and a pine on Braswel's line then along his line west crossing the bents of Bear tree Creek 55 chains to a white oak.

I don't have a William listed on my family tree. But my relative, James Pickett,b.1723 in VA and d. 1798 in Anson Co. NC had one son,my 5-great-grandfather, Micajah who was born in 1748. Possibly your William could be another of James's sons. I'm sure there must be others besides Micajah. James was married to Hannah Reynolds. Do you have any info about this?

Died of smallpox while serving in the American Revolution He was buried before November 1781 in Patterson Family Cemetery, Orange County, NC. Location - Northeast of Chapel Hill off Erwin Road (SR #1734,
formerly Mt. Moriah Church Road) about 250 ft eastward of the
road across a field almost directly opposite the front entrance of
Mt. Moriah Baptist Church. The cemetery is all the way across the
field in a clump of cedars, box trees and hardwoods. The site is
visible from the church steps and from Erwin Road.
