This is very interesting! My research is on Jesse Cage who mmarried Ann Davis (daughter of Joseph Davis). I believe Jesse is either the natural father (or adoptive father) of my Benjamin Franklin Cage (born 1814 before Jesse married Ann Davis) whose natural born mother was Rebecca Elizabeth "Eliza" Winchester of Sumner County, TN. Benjamin Franklin Cage was born "Trophonius James Cage Winchester" in 1814 and his mother and Cage father never married. We have two likely fathers... James Cage who never married but did have children later in life in Louisiana with two other women. His mother Eliza Winchester then married an Abraham Beck and had several Beck children. She changed Trophonius James Cage Winchester's name to Benjamin Franklin Cage in 1819 (Sumner County, Tennessee records) and we believe that he may have lived with Jesse Cage & Ann Davis-Cage (adopted or natural father is not proven which).

Benjamin Franklin Cage, Sr (1814-1887) is my 3rd great grandfather and his father (we strongly believe) is most likely James Cage and adoptive father Jesse Cage (or possibly natural not adoptive). Two of Jesse & Ann's son's ended up in Texas, as did my 3rd great grandfather Benjamin Franklin Cage, Sr. It is possible that Jesse fathered Benjamin with Eliza Winchester before he married Ann Davis OR the Winchester and Cage family placed our Benjamin with Jessee and Ann. I may never be able to asolutely prove his natural father.

Below is some of my notes on this subject. I am so glad to find more info on Fielder Cage and descendents!

Below are some of my notes on Benjamin Cage....

Benjamin Cage is found serving in the militia in 1758. So, if we presume him to be at least 16 yers of age in order to serve, then was born no later than 1742. If, assume Benjam to be son of William Cage III and Margaret Wilson (whom is assumed to have died by 1730), then marrying about 1740-1750 and dying at age 61-71 is a reasonable assumption.

Benjamin Cage is the only Cage listed in the Charlotte Co, VA census and tax listings of 1782/1790, but after his death in 1791, we find Jess, John, Fielding Cage all reckoned in Charlote Co Tax list of 1800.

BENJAMIN CAGE of Charlotte County, VA references include:

13 Oct 1760: Benjamin petitions for pay, asserting that he was sent out in 1858 to the frontier and served 108 days, but his name was omitted by mistake from the Company Roll (Journals of the House of Burgess of VA 1758-1761, H.R. Macllwaine, ed.; Richmond, VA 1908; page 192)

16 Mar 1780: Bejamin Cage allowed 5.80 for service in Prince William's Malitia (Journals of the House of Burgess of VA 1758-1761, H.R. Macllwaine, ed.; Richmond, VA 1908; page 192)

1782: Benjamin Cage appears on a Charlotte County, VA list of soldiers serving in the late Great Britain/France War, stating tht he served until the end of the war, was discharged, and never received or claimed a land bounty. He served in Captain Daggets Co. of VA Regt. as a private.

1787: Benjamin Cage appears on a Charlotte Co, VA tax list.

13 Dec 1788: Benjamin Cage's daughter Margaret Cage, recorded in a marriage contract to Edmund Turner, Charlotte, VA.

1792: Benjamin Cage's estate's inventory is recorded in Charlotte Co, VA; from this document it is clear that he died by November 1791. John Fuqua inventoried the estate of Benjamin Cage in 1791.

LIKELY CHILDREN OF BENJAMIN CAGE:

If the 1782 census may be read as head of household and wife, then it appears that Benjamin Cage had at least six children. Five Cages appear in the Charlotte County, VA shortly after Benjamin's death ca 1791, and it seems likely that they were his children (summary): (If below is correct assumption, then who was the 6th child listed in the 1782 census? Possibly Major William Cage (1745-1811 according to a researcher recorded on page 284 of "Tennesse Records - Bible Records and Marriage Bonds, compiled by Jeannette Tillotson Acklen; however, I think that more likely Maj William Cage was son of William Cage and Margaret Wilson - as Benjamin Cage died ca 1791 in Charlotte County, VA and to have served in the French War he would have had to be likely born ca 1720-1730 but have not found a documented birth date for this Benjamin Cage yet - I have his will on order 7/2011)

MARGARET CAGE
Margaret Cage of Charlotte County, VA married Edmund Turner Dec. 13, 1788.

FIELDER/FIELDING CAGE
April 7-15, 1795: Fielder (of Fielding) Cage of Charlotte, VA married Susannah Jones on April 15, 1795 (marriage bond filed in Charlotte Co on April 7, 1795 with Richard Booker as surety - marriage performed on April 15, 1795 by Rv Charles Cobb)

1800: Fielder Cage appears on the Charlotte Co Tax list of 1800 (VA Genealogist, v 15, #3, p. 167)

1810: Fielder Cage appears in the 1810 VA Census with 1 male (age 10-16); 1 male (age 26-45); 1 female (under 10); 1 female (16-26 age); and two slaves (Charlotte County VA, roll 68, page 45)

1820: Fielding Cage appears in the 1820 VA Census, Halifax Co, VA

JOHN CAGE of Charlotte Co, VA:

1800: John Cage appears on the Charlotte County, VA Tax List of 1800 owning 6 horses & 3 slaves (VA Geneaoligist, v. 15, #3, p. 167)

06 JAN 1803: Marriage bond of John Cage to Peggy Barnes, widow of Henry Barnes. Married January 06, 1803

1810: Jesse Cage appears on the Halifax County, VA Tax List of 1820 as owning 1 horse.

21 Aug 1814: On August 21, 1814... Marriage bond of Jesse Cage and Ann Davis, daughter of Joseph Davis, in Charlotte VA. Ceremony performed on August 23, 1814 by Rev Richard Dobbs.

CAGE/BARNES/STOWE Connections reflected:

ELIZABETH CAGE of Charlotte County VA:
02 JAN 1796: Elizabeth Cage of Charlotte Co VA married John Barnes of Charlotte VA on January 2, 1796.

The strongest arguent to be made for these being the children of Benjamin Cage is the Barnes connection.

Starting with John Cage. We find him with 6 horses and 3 slaves in the 1800 Charlotte County, VA, indicating he was, if not wealthy, at least well off. He married Peggy Barnes, the widow of Henry Barnes on January 6, 1803 (Bond filed January 5, 1803). The Peggy Barnes is probably Margaret Caldwell Wood who married Henry Barnes on April 20, 1782 in Charlotte Co VA. We find that Henry Barnes served as bondsman for his sister Elizabeth Barne's marriage to William Fuqua on May 20, 1797 (bond filed May 13, 1797). Sarah Barnes is, on the same record, listed as Elizabeth's mother. Sarah Barnes is listed as the mother of the bride in the following record as well:

November 21, 1787: Cleary Barnes, dau. of Henry & Sarah Barnes, married William Stowe (bondsman Gabriel Barnes, November 15, 1787)

This Gabriel Barnes, surely a relative, himself married Lucy Ann Stowe (daughter of Joel & Susannah Stowe) in late 1788, a marriage bond for them was filed Dec. 16, 1788 by Benjamin Cheatham.

Dec. ??, 1788: Margaret Cage, daughter of Benjamin Cage married Edmund Turner (Gabriel Barnes, bondsman Dec 13,1788)

April 16, 1801: Sarah Barnes married Lemuel Stoe(Stowe) (Gabriel Barnes, bondsman April 6, 1801)

January 24, 1810: Nancy Barnes married George Thompson (Garbiel Barnes, bondsman January 22, 1810)

August 21, 1814: Jesse Cage married Ann Davis, daughter of Joseph Davis (Gabriel Barnes, bondsman Aug. 21, 1814)

From above records, we may make the following assumptions:

HENRY BARNES, SR and his wife Sarah had at least the following children:
1) Henry Barnes Jr who married Margaret "Peggy" Caldwell Wood on April 20, 1782; Margaret Peggy Caldwell Wood-Barnes married 2nd to John Cage on January 6, 1803.

2) Cleary Barnes married William Stowe on November 21, 1787.

3) Gabriel Barnes married Elizabeth Cage on January 2, 1796.

4) Elizabeth Barnes married William Fuqua on May 20, 1797.

The remaining two marriages are problematic:

The Nancy Barnes who married George Thompson in 1810 may well be Gabriel Barnes daughter.

The Sarah Barnes who married Lemuel Stowe in 1801 may, in fact, be the widow of Henry Barnes Sr (that Lemuel was the bondsman for Elizabeth Cage in 1797-five years before his marriage to Sarah, enforces this theory). Whateve the complex relationships are it is clear that there was a close relationship amongst the CAGE, BARNES, and STOWE families in Charlotte, VA at the turn of the 18th/19th century and that the Cages who are marrying there from 1788-1814 are likely siblings.
ALSO: Note that a John Fuqua inventoried the estate of Benjamin Cage in November 1791.

Name: Mary Parker Spouse: Peter B. Cage Marriage Date: 20 Jan 1783 (I do not think this is our Benjamin, but making note of this Marriage in case it turns out to be related - if our Benjamin he would have made this marriage in 1783 before he died in 1791 and even if him, likely no children born). I do not find a Peter in our line, so do not think that Peter B Cage is our Benjamin Cage. It seems that some historical recording have confused Peter B Cage to be the same as Benjamin Cage, when in fact they are two different men.

Below (excerpt from ancestry.com on Tn Marriages & Bible Records):

After emigrating to Virginia, the Cages carried on the name, but there were never many of the family, only an occasional member appearing in the records through some service. Benjamin Cage served in the French and Indian War, 1758, and I imagine he is the father of Major William Cage, the distinguished North Carolina-Tennessee Revolutionary soldier, who was born in Virginia in 1745. Though I have not been able to find documentary proof, I have no doubt Major William Cage is the direct descendant of Edward Cage, the emigrant to Virginia in 1625, and the son of Benjamin Cage, the Colonial soldier.

MAJOR WILLIAM CAGE page 284 Major William Cage, born in Virginia, 1745, moved to Chatham County, N. C., before the Revolution. He was prominent and popular, and when the Revolution began he was appointed Major and was chiefly active in suppressing Tories under the notorious Col. David Fanning. For reference to his service as Major, see North Carolina Colonial Records, Vol. 22, page 575. It is said that he was taken prisoner at one time and remained for some time a prisoner of the British. I think this was at the siege of Charleston. After the Revolution he moved from Chatham County, N. C., to what was then Sullivan County, Virginia, or North Carolina, the boundary line being for a long time a matter of dispute, where as before he became a leading citizen. He was a delegate to the North Carolina House of Commons from Sullivan County in 1783, his associate being Col. Abraham Bledsoe; he was elected to the next session when his associate was David Looney.

MAJOR WILLIAM CAGE page 284 When the question of session from North Carolina was agitated and the State of Franklin was proposed he first opposed it, but later became a warm supporter of the State of Franklin and as usual a leader in affairs. He was elected to the Franklin legislature from Sullivan County and was elected Speaker of the Lower House. He was later elected first Treasurer of the State of Franklin. MAJOR

WILLIAM CAGE page 284 In 1785 when the State of Franklin seemed lost, he moved probably because of his friendship with the Bledsoes, to Davidson County and Sumner County, where he received a military land grant, and where, as usual, he immediately took an active part in all affairs. Gov. Blount of the Territorial Government appointed him Sheriff of Sumner County and he served from 1790 to 1796, when he was succeeded by his son. Major Cage died at his home, Sumner County, March 12, 1811. His tombstone relates that he served in the Revolution.

MAJOR WILLIAM CAGE page 284 He married twice (note: my personal records indicate that he was married 3 times, 3rd being his wife when he died and in his Will), both wives coming of patriotic and distinguished ancestry. His first wife was Elizabeth Douglass, daughter of Col. Edward Douglass and Sarah George Douglass. Major Cage's second wife was Anne Morgan. MAJOR WILLIAM CAGE page 284

By his first marriage Major Cage had ten children, namely: MAJOR WILLIAM CAGE page 284 Priscilla Cage, married William Hale. MAJOR WILLIAM CAGE page 284 Wilson Cage, married Polly Dillard. MAJOR WILLIAM CAGE page 284 Reuben Cage, married Polly Morgan. MAJOR WILLIAM CAGE page 284 William Cage, Jr., married Fannie Street. MAJOR WILLIAM CAGE page 284 Sally Cage, married Jack Carr. MAJOR WILLIAM CAGE page 284 James Cage, died unmarried. MAJOR WILLIAM CAGE page 284 Edward Cage, married Elizabeth Jarrett. MAJOR WILLIAM CAGE page 284 John Cage, married Thankful Morgan. MAJOR WILLIAM CAGE page 284 Lofton Cage, married - Gillespie. MAJOR WILLIAM CAGE page 284 Jesse Cage, married Polly Gillespie. MAJOR WILLIAM CAGE page 284 By his second wife, Anne Morgan, Major Cage had six children: MAJOR WILLIAM CAGE page 284 Richard Cage (no information). MAJOR WILLIAM CAGE page 284 [p.285] Harry Cage, married Catherine Stewart of Mississippi. MAJOR WILLIAM CAGE page 285 Albert Cage (no information). MAJOR WILLIAM CAGE page 285 Elizabeth Cage, married Harman Hays; parents of the celebrated Col. Jack Hays of the Texas Rangers. MAJOR WILLIAM CAGE page 285 Patsy Cage, married Thomas Morton. MAJOR WILLIAM CAGE page 285 Robert Cage, married Lucy Hunley, of Wilson County, Tenn. MAJOR WILLIAM CAGE page 285 The eldest of the children of Major William Cage, Priscilla Cage, married while still in Sullivan County, William Hale, who belonged to a prominent family. He was a son of Nicholas Hale, a soldier of the Revolution, whose will is on file in Jonesboro, Tenn. In Nicholas Hale's will he mentions his son, William. He also mentions a daughter, Elizabeth Cage, but I have not been able to prove by records the Christian name of Elizabeth's husband and his relation to the large family of children of Major William Cage. He was probably a nephew of Major William Cage. By Douglas Anderson page 285 Sent by Mrs. George Harsh, 1902 Union Avenue, Memphis, Tenn. By Douglas Anderson page 285 In response to the urgent requests of congress that states which claimed western lands should cede them “as a further means of extinguishing the debt and establishing the harmony of the United States,” the North Carolina legislature early in 1784 ceded certain of her western lands upon certain conditions. One was that congress should accept the lands within one year. By a subsequent act, passed during the same session, North Carolina declared that it would retain its sovereignty over the territory ceded until the cession should be accepted by congress. By Douglas Anderson page 285 In August, 1784, a convention composed of delegates from the counties of Washington, Sullivan and Greene, met at Jonesborough, “empowered to adopt such a course as should appear wise” with respect to their newly created situation. By Douglas Anderson page 285 In November, 1784, North Carolina repealed the cession act. But before the news of this repeal reached the people across the mountain they had elected delegates to another convention. In the face of this repealing act this convention met at Jonesborough Dec. 14, 1784, and created, as far as it was within their power to do so, the state of Franklin, named in honor of Benjamin Franklin. By Douglas Anderson page 285 North Carolina reasserted her jurisdiction over the territory, and for several years thereafter the conflict raged between the parent state and her rebellious offspring. The “Franks” were divided over the issues involved. This made matters worse for the advocates of independence. Petitions, memorials, speeches, addresses and letters followed each other in diplomatic succession, while physical force was not an unknown factor in the struggle. By Douglas Anderson page 285 While sparring with her mother state and some of her own truant sons, the state of Franklin also made repeated efforts to obtain the intercession of Congress in its behalf. Old Ben, himself, was besought to draw the lightning of congressional approval down his kite string. Doubtless the promoters of the new state had in mind his powers as a magician when they honored him in naming the state. OLD NEWS THAT'S NEW page 285

As my purpose here is to make public the recent discovery that Major William Cage, of Cage's Bend, was one of the leading spirits in the effort to establish the new state of Franklin, it is proper [p.286] that I should first give an idea of what that movement was. OLD NEWS THAT'S NEW page 286 When the late J. G. Cisco wrote his “Historic Sumner County,” published in 1909, he included, it seems, all the information that he could get from members of the Cage family about the Cage family. If Cisco could have learned from any of the descendants of William Cage of Cage's Bend, or from my other source, that this ancestor of all the Sumner County Cages had been instrumental in establishing the state of Franklin, it may be safely assumed that he would have mentioned so interesting and important a fact. He does not mention it; from which, it is a reasonable conclusion that this fact was unknown to any of Major Cage's descendants or to any one else in this section. Cisco makes it appear that Major Cage came to Sumner County directly from Virginia; he does not mention Major Cage's long period of residence in North Carolina. LOST TRADITIONS page 286 It is not remarkable that all knowledge of Major Cage's connection with the state of Franklin should have been lost to his posterity when the state itself is referred to as “the lost state.” LOST TRADITIONS page 286 In his brief sketch of Franklin, Haywood refers several times to “William Cage” and Ramsey follows suit. They do not tell what became of “William Cage” after Franklin fell. LOST TRADITIONS page 286 Haywood's history, printed in 1823, is not a book that appeals to the average reader-in fact, it is very tiresome; and without an index is about as useful as an ax without a handle. For many years before the second edition was printed, also without an index (1891), only three copies were known to be in existence-so Col. John Allison told me; and one of these he rode a long distance across the mountains to buy at $25. LOST TRADITIONS page 286 Ramsey's Annals is a bulky, unattractive volume (published in 1860, during the war excitement), with no more drawing power among “the people” than Haywood's history. It never had much of a circulation here, and can rarely be found except in some public library, or that of some person who is specially interested in Tennessee history. And these are very few-and always have been few. LOST TRADITIONS page 286 Traditions frequently fall on unsympathetic ears, and the chain is broken. LOST TRADITIONS page 286 Members of families scatter from Dan to Beersheba, as members of the Cage family did, and traditions are lost in this way. LOST TRADITIONS page 286 From one or all of these causes, or some other cause that cannot be surmised, it has been left to Judge Samuel C. Williams, formerly of the Supreme Court of Tennessee, now a resident of Atlanta, Ga., to identify “William Cage” of Franklin as Maj. William Cage of Cage's Bend. LOST TRADITIONS page 286 Also, it may be remarked, the author of “The Lost State of Franklin” gives more facts about Maj. William Cage, in other respects, than Cisco gives, upon the authority of the Cage family. LEADER IN FRANKLIN page 286 Major Cage was one of the delegates from Sullivan County to the convention of Dec. 14, 1784, held at Jonesborough. Although he voted against independence “at this time,” he suffered nothing by being in the minority. He was elected Speaker of the House of Commons of the first Assembly, which met in March, 1785. At the same session he was elected State Treasurer. LEADER IN FRANKLIN page 286 Williams publishes an answer to a letter received by Governor Sevier from Governor Martin of North Carolina. The letter was “formulated by the Assembly” and is signed by Major Cage and Landon Carter, Speaker of the Senate. LEADER IN FRANKLIN page 286 Another address from the Assembly to Congress praying for acceptance of the secession act and the admission of Franklin as a [p.287] state is likewise signed by Speakers Cage and Carter. MEMBER OF CONVENTION page 287 In May, 1787, a convention was held at Greeneville to consider the final adoption of the Constitution promulgated at the place in November, 1785. There is no complete record of the members of the convention of 1785. Possibly Major Cage was a member. He was a member of the convention of 1787, which adopted a Constitution. Before this convention adjourned William Cocke proposed a resolution favoring holding an election for members of the North Carolina Legislature on the same day that North Carolina should hold an election for this purpose in Franklin. The idea was that by this means the “Franks” could elect men favorable to a separation from North Carolina; in which event a sufficient number of members of the North Carolina Assembly would grant the separation. MEMBER OF CONVENTION page 287 On this motion Major Cage was reported at the time to have spoken in substance as follows: MEMBER OF CONVENTION page 287 “Colonel Cage was of the opinion that if we did not hold the sham election proposed under the authority of North Carolina, thereby to get friends to represent us in that Assembly, we should never bring about a reconciliation; and as a friend to peace as well as a faithful friend to the state of Franklin, he heartily wished that the motion now in question might be carried; thus, with their own weapons, we should prove victorious over our enemy.” WILLIAMS' SKETCH page 287 Judge Williams prints a sketch of Major Cage, which is here copied, with the author's permission: WILLIAMS' SKETCH page 287 “William Cage was born in Virginia in 1745. He removed to Chatham County, N. C., and served for a time as Major in the Revolutionary Army. His chief service was against the Tories under the noted Col. David Fanning. He seems to have been a prisoner of the Tories for a short time. He removed after the war to Sullivan County, N. C. That county sent him as one of its delegates to the House of Commons of the North Carolina Legislature of 1783, his associate being Col. Abraham Bledsoe. He was returned the succeeding session, along with David Looney. He voted against the first secession act; but became one of the moving spirits in organizing the new state of Franklin. He was elected Speaker of the Lower House of the first Assembly, and was the first Treasurer of the State. WILLIAMS' SKETCH page 287 “In 1785 he removed to Sumner County, probably influenced to do so by the Bledsoes. When the territorial government was organized he was appointed by Governor Blount sheriff of Sumner County, and by successive appointments he served until 1796, when he was succeeded by James Cage. Another son, Harry Cage, removed to Mississippi, where he became Supreme Judge and Congressman. “William Cage died at his home in Cage's Bend (of Cumberland River), March, 1811.” CONFLICT OF DEATHS page 287 There is a conflict of dates in Judge Williams' book with respect to Major Cage, due, doubtless, to the statement made by Cisco that Major Cage moved to Sumner County in 1785. Such oversights will happen in the best regulated families. A contemporaneous account of the convention of 1787 shows that Major Cage was still a resident of Franklin. He moved to Sumner County in 1790 or before; for he was first appointed sheriff by Governor Blount in the year named. During his last term as sheriff (as appears from Cisco) he was also collector of taxes. The records in the register's office of Sumner County may indicate, without showing positively, when Major Cage moved to Sumner County. CONFLICT OF DEATHS page 287 Major Cage's tombstone bears this inscription: CONFLICT OF DEATHS page 287 “William Cage, a Major in the [p.288] Revolutionary War, died March 12, 1811.” CONFLICT OF DEATHS page 288 It was one of my duties, as a boy, to keep the stock fenced out of the old Cage graveyard where Major Cage is buried. The brick walls were then in good condition, but the gate had long before disappeared. The brick walls are now rapidly decaying and the inscriptions on the tombstones are almost illegible. CONFLICT OF DEATHS page 288 The Sons of the American Revolution are putting up monuments to mark the resting places of Revolutionary soldiers. I respectfully call their attention to the condition of the grave of one who was not only an officer in the Revolutionary Army, but (as has only recently been made known) a participant in one of the most notable struggles in American history. CONFLICT OF DEATHS page 288 In a future article I will have more to say of Major Cage, and the Cage family and homestead; for be it known that I am not yet through with Cage's Bend.
