In the reminiscences of E. H. SCARLETT, Levi COLE is said to have come from
the English town of Leeds, home of the SCARLETT'S, and ALLEN'S. Levi who
appears to have been the earliest identifiable COLE in the Eno Valley may
have been an older brother of Anthony COLE, the Eno patriarch.

Levi COLE turns up in the 1786 Orange County Court to lay down a road
direct from William ANSLEY'S Mill to Hillsborough. By this date the
ABERCROMBIES had sold their mill to ANSLEY. It was not to become known as
West Point until almost a century later.

Anthony COLE married Susannah BROWNING in 1822 and had 14 children, and at
least 18 grandchildren, besides nephews and nieces by way of his brothers
William, Solomon, and Levi. COLE holdings on the Eno were extensive. They
ranged down river from HOLDEN'S Mill, purchased in 1887 by his sixth son
Samuel; past a tract of 108 acres "on the waters of Enoe" purchased by his
nephew John Anderson COLE from James PRATT in 1881; past McCOWAN's Mill,
run by John A. COLE in 1867 and bought by him with 400 acres in 1874; to 77
acres on Forrester's Mill Creek just upstream from West Point which were
sold by his first son Thomas to his third son Stephen in 1857. There were
other lands besides.

The family grew and multiplied, John Anderson COLE had 16 children. His
sister Sarah Caroline Theodosia COLE had 11 children. Then came the "Durham
Sickness" typhoid from contaminated wells, which killed the COLES and
others mercilessly. In 1908 their mills were washed away by the Hundred
Year Flood. Their lands are now diminished by Durham's development. Yet
they are a continuing force, a central part of Eno River history.

The homeplace of Thomas COLE still stands, now in Eno River State Park, in
a thicket of trumpet vines, surrounded by field daffodils in the Spring. A
family of buzzards lives on the second floor and a ghost has been
photographed in the dogtrot.

Before the War of Northern Aggression and the Emancipation Proclamation, the status of Black/Afro-American persons in the U.S. was such, that not one of them, that was not a 'free black' (with manumission papers) was "supposed" to enumerated in the census.

Thanks, Richard.

A few years ago my husband John and I drove out west and through McMinnville, Tenn. I had just received the Browder bk. by Mrs. Dye (who did not know that our Eunice remained in Orange Co. She has her m. to Wm Wilson and removing to Tenn.) and it was on the backseat unopened. And there was BROWDER Hardware Store right before my eyes! Of course we went in. Mr. Browder is a descendant of Darious Browder.

There was a patch of Wilsons who lived near Ed. Browder in Chatham. One had a strange first name and that same unusual given name showed up in a Tripp grandson of John and Eunice Wilson. I think that is some kind of a clue. The unusual name was Blumer Wilson. I think they lived near Edmund near Chatham/Wake line. Then the Blumer Tripp mentioned I think in John Wilson's will.

xiii. Delilah HERNDON was born about 1774. She died in 1838. She had an estate probated in February 1838 in Orange County, NC.37

84. Robert WILSON was born in 1729. He owned 228 acres on Little River in 1760 in Orange County, NC. He was Oath of Allegiance in 1777 in Hillsborough, Orange County, NC. He signed a will in 1806 in Orange County, NC.38 He died about 1806 in Orange County, NC. Robert Wilson was probably a member of the early Wilson family in North Carolina, however he took up residence in Orange County in the neighborhood of a number of immigrants from the Pennsylvania frontier who had come south to avoid the Indian raids.

He obtained a grant for 228 acres along the south fork of Little Creek just east of the current small town of Schley, North Carolina. The survey was conducted in the name of Ann Latta, who married Robert at or about this time. A File Folder for the grant is in the North Carolina archives and was recorded in Book 12, page 57 on 30 July 1760. Archelius Wilson on the same day patented land adjacent to Robert, so it is likely they were brothers.

The early Wilson's might be in the Perquimmans Currituck County area near Albemarle Sound. A Robert Wilson will is filed in 1696 with son Isaac. There are numerous Isaac Wilson descendants and wills. Caleb Wilson's will is filed in 1754 with brothers Josiah and Malachi and later one of the Isaac's has a son Caleb in 1815 will. Patrick Anderson has copies of many of the early wills, but hasn't tried to piece the whole puzzle together. He has noticed that he couldn't match any of the Robert's mentioned up to this Robert Wilson. All of the wills are in the Raleigh archieves. He thinks this Robert is a branch of of this group.

Anderson further believes that the key to finding this Robert's father is to look for Archelius Wilson, who patented land in Orange County at the same time and adjacent to as this Robert, which means they were probably brothers. Later, the name Archelius is used for a grandson of this Robert, through son James. We need to find a will or tax record that links Archelius back to the main Wilson family to provide the missing link. There are probably too many Robert Wilson's to be sure of linking this one to the correct one. The tax records might have Robert and Archelius appearing together on a tax list in their county of origin, before they got their land patents in Orange County.

The Wilsons of Caithness and Sutherland descend from William, son of that George who was Chief of Clan Gunn in the mid 15th century. The Wilson tartan was designed by William Wilson of the Bannockburn Wilsons, for his wife, Janet, in the early nineteenth century. This branch of the Wilson family may use either the Wilson or Gunn tartan.

They were Scots-Irish and probably of the Presbyterian faith and helped establish the Little River Presbyterian Church -- the early records of that church burned.

In the pleas and quarter session of 1777, Robert was one of several men to take the oath of allegiance at the Orange county courthouse. He is listed as being in the Revolutionary War; he probably did not actually participate in battle, as many men did not. He was married to Ann LATTA about 1753 in Orange County, NC.

85. Ann LATTA was born about 1730. She signed a will on August 27, 1820 in Orange County, NC. Probated in the Orange county court, deed D, page 586:
In the name of God Amen I Ann Wilson farmer of the County of Orange State of North Carolina being low in health but in sound mind & memory thanks be given unto God calling into mind the mortality of my body knowing that is appointed for all men once to die do make and ordain this my last will & testament that is to say principally first of all I give or recommend my soul into the hands of Almighty God that gave it and my body I recommend to the earth to be buried in Christian burial at the discretion of my executors nothing doubling but at the general resurrection I shall regain the same again by the mighty power of God & as touching such worldly estate wherewith he had blessed me in this life I give demise & dispose of the same on the following manner & form.

Joseph Latta Ann [X] Wilson
Caleb Wilson

When Ann died her personal property was listed in the Orange county estate papers, none of her property was sold at public auction.
An inventory of the estate of Ann Wilson, dec., viz.
5 cows & five calves
6 sheep & 16 hogs
1 still
3 beds & furniture
1 cupboard & 12 pewter plates
4 dishes
2 pots & one teakettle
1 silver watch
6 pewter pint basins
3 large pewter basins
3 cart boxes
1 bramble scythe
1 case drawers

Ann would have inherited the still from her husband, not many people owned one because the apparatus was very expensive and were passed on to a man's wife or children at his death.
She died after August 27, 1820 in Orange County, NC. May have been a widow of a Latta. She received a grant in Orange County that Robert Wiilson's name was added to later. Robert WILSON and Ann LATTA had the following children:

Thos. Wilson He died on July 11, 1829 in Orange County, NC. Missouri Historical Review, page 69, The Wilson Letters (1835-1849)
"Thomas Wilson was a descendant of Scots-Irish settlers of Orange County, North Carolina, and lived in what is now the Little River Township, in the northern part of the county, but which was the St. Mary's District at the time his forebears first obtained land grants and built their homes. Wilson was a conservative, hard-working farmer, a pious Presbyterian, and a good citizen. When he died in 1829, he left a large family to share the ancestral acres. Three of his sons succumbed to the urge to go to the frontier and try their fortunes in a new situation.
"The Wilson family were close neighbors and friends of a Turrentine family, descendants of two immigrant brothers, and there was considerable intermarriage between them. Two daughters of Thomas Wilson married Turrentines, and kept Bible records as well as family papers, which were passed on to their descendants, and from which the genealogy of the two families has been constructed. It was these daughters who kept the letters written by their brothers to them, and to their mother, and whose descendants preserved them to this day. They are now deposited in the Southern Historical Collection, in the Library of the University of North Carolina, at Chapel Hill, where they are labeled "Wilson Letters" and catalogued under both the state of Missouri and North Carolina.
"The letters the Wilson brothers wrote home contain the observations, planning, and conclusions of people of average intelligence and embrace almost every phase of thought in which men on the frontier could possibly be interested. In spite of educational handicaps, the ability of these men to express themselves on paper is remarkable. The six letters published here were discovered among family papers in the possession of Mrs. Lillian McMannen Fitzgerald, of White Springs, Florida, a great granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. Absolom Turrentine, to whom two of the letters were addressed. In 1959, they were given to the editor. Periods have been added where absolutely necessary, but other punctuation and spelling have not been altered in an attempt to maintain the originality of the letters."

He had an estate probated in August 1785 in Chatham County, NC. He served in the military in Battle of Alamance, Revolutionary War. Left Brunswick City, VA when he sold his plantation on 13 December 1779 for 3,000 pounds. Chatham County deed of 1780 recorded in 1782. Edmund had service in Virginia Continental line, probably in VA militia. In NC, he served in the state militia. He had Chatham County jury duty in 1783. He owned land in VA at his death. He, per his will, sent his two youngest daughters up to Brunswick to live with his brither, Joseph. Lois stayed and married John Chiles. Mason appears to have gone to TN with older siblings, as a female named Mason of the correct age showed up in Browder household out there. Doesn't appear that she married.

EIGHTH GENERATION

164. Richard HERNDON was born in 1708 in King & Queen County, VA. He died in 1754 in Orange County, NC. 10 August 1732 Court order of Caroline County to Richard Green to pay Richard Herndon 61 pounds of tobacco for testifying two days as a witness for Green.

Around the time of the Revolution, Caroline County was the third most populous county in Virginia. The county was created from Essex County in 1728.

Caroline is one of four counties created from "Old" Rappahannock County, 1656-1692. On a scale of 1-10, your probability of success in researching "Old" Rappahannock County and its quartet of descendants is an 8 or a 9 in its three eldest children: Essex and Richmond Cos created in 1692, and King George County created in 1721. In the royal baby of the family, Caroline, you will be lucky if you can score a "1."

Almost all of the colonial wills, deeds, and marriage records are gone. The few land and other transactions which remain may be found in survey books, chancery court suits of later date which sometimes recite earlier events, and transactions in surrounding counties which affected Caroline citizens. One salvation in researching Caroline is that its Court Orders were preserved from the year 1732; the first Order Book is no longer extant.

Complicating the problems even more is the fact that Caroline was not erected from a single county. Territory from Essex, King and Queen, and King William contributed toward the formation of Caroline in 1728. Of these, only Essex has relatively complete early records.

Caroline was also served by two waterways, the Rappahannock River on the north and the much smaller Mattapony on the south. During the colonial period, the Mattapony was navigable from the York River up to Aylett in King and Queen County. From there, goods were floated by raft to Caroline destinations. For this reason, and because the Rappahannock shore was patented some years before actual settlement began, the population of the interior of the county grew more rapidly.

Another difference which affected the settlement of Caroline was the existence of the vast Beverley Park tract, part of which was within Caroline's southeastern boundary. Robert Beverley, the historian, acquired this vast tract of land after Bacon's Rebellion in 1676. On it he developed a living model for the economic and agricultural policies which he espoused.

If Caroline County was abundant in creating four parishes within its borders, she was also thorough when she destroyed them. There is not a shred of a church record left in Caroline County until Baptist records begin about 1820.

Finally, many old landmarks and relicts are now destroyed or obscured, for Caroline has two features on its landscape which the other three counties do not have: a large military reservation, A. P. Hill, and a railroad.

The one bright spot in Caroline research is that the Court Order Books were preserved. Thomas Elliott Campbell, former Caroline county clerk and a lawyer, left us a tremendous legacy in his book. This resource contains thousands of Caroline County names: "Colonial Caroline, A History of Caroline County, Virginia," by T. E. Campbell, The Dietz Press, Inc, Richmond VA, 1954.

The following excerpts relative to Thomas Burk and other Caroline citizens are from Mr. Campbell's book:

P. 201: At the March term of the Caroline Court for 1768, which was the first term of the court under Blair's [John Blair, President of the Virginia Council] rule], a grand jury brought in presentments against John Burruss for "illegally preaching" at the home of Jacob Burruss in St. Margaret's Parish and at the home of Phillip Tinsley in Drysdale, Jacob Burruss for permitting the holding of "unauthorized" divine services in his home in St. Margaret's and Phillip Tinsley for permitting the holding of "unauthorized" divine services in his home in Drysdale, and John Thompson, James Gatewood, Thomas Terrell, Robert Chandler, George McNails, William Blades, Christopher Terrell, Robert Woolfolk, the son of Joseph Woolfolk, Thomas Burk, Martha Noden, Rachael Terrell, and Henry Terrell for attending "unauthorized" religious services at the home of Jacob Burruss . . .

P. 204: James Gatewood, Robert Chandler and Thomas Burk were leaders of the rising middle class and the chances are that their attendance [at the "unauthorized religious services"] was motivated more by politics than religion. They considered the Established Church as a tool of the great landlords and were interested in any movement which threatened to weaken it.

P. 217: One rejection [to building a mill] was on account of a peach orchard and the other resulted in a bitter lawsuit. When John Sutton asked permission to rebuild a mill he once operated near Burk's Bridge, the court denied the request because Thomas Burk had brought into production a fine peach orchard on Burk's portion of the old pond bed. Peaches were a luxury in the county and the basis of the most expensive locally distilled brandy.

P. 410: Much of the social life in colonial Virginia centered about the taverns. Here planters, traders, professional men and artisans met to discuss business and politics. Here cheats and speculators plied their crafts and wastrels hung out so long as they had, or were able to borrow, the means for dissipation. Here traveling troupes gave shows and games of chance flourished. Cards and dice were the favorite devices for gambling on the inside of the building, while on the outside bets were placed on wrestling matches, cock-fights, gander headpulling contests and horse races. The Caroline County Court granted licenses to ninety applicants to operate taverns between 1727 and 1781.

1734-50 - Thomas Burk I - at Sutton's stand; south side Mattapony at Burk's Bridge

P. 413: 1762-72 - Thomas Burk II - Burk's Bridge; the Burk family's stand.

P. 414: Of Caroline's colonial taverns only four remain standing in whole or in part in 1953. They are George Todd's Tavern at Villborro, Thomas Johnston's at Wright's Fork, the Murray-Haynes-Hubbarb-Broaddus' Tavern which is now the home of Miss Ivy Carter at Sparta, and Robert Farish's printing shop in Port Royal, which houses several taverns of that town.
