I recently purchased the "Early Settlers Mecklenburg County, Virginia" reference published in 1964. The book contains notes on early families, land grants, deeds, tithe lists, lists, parish info, colonial soldiers rosters, and a list of families who migrated to other states. I will do lookups. Please email me or post to this message and I will do my best to help you out!

From the random act of kindness girl,
Roberta

I am searching for information on the Wortham families who lived in Mecklenburg County as early as 1820 when a Wm Wortham was enumerated in the 1820 census. Four other different Wortham men and their families resided there through the 1850s.

Could you please tell me if there is a reference in your book to a Charles H. Hudson (b. bet. 1820-30, d. abt. 1900 in Monroe County, AL) who went to Alabama? I believe that his middle initial stands for Hiliary, since he had a son by that name. I know he came from the Meck. area, but I can't find which family of Hudsons to connect him to.

Because of the Hiliary name, I believe that he must belong somehow to Charles Hiliary Hudson (1758-1840). He could be a grandson or nephew or something. This Charles Hiliary also had a Charles H., Jr. (b. 1795) who married Elizabeth Duffer.

I'm looking for any information on John and Lucy Covington who supposedly owned a plantation in or near Pineville before the Civil War. According to family lore they divorced before the War sold all the property and put the monies into trust for their children. They supposedly had only two children, John Jr. and Lucy. John is said to have died as a youth in a horse riding accident perhaps before the divorce, so the daughter, Lucy, may have been the sole heir. After the divorce John, Sr. is said to have moved off, possibly to Georgia and the Lucys moved to Texas. If there is anything in your book about this family I would LOVE to know.

The only reference to Charles Hudson in the book occurs in the tariff list of 1764 for St. James Parish. He is listed with a William Hudson.

However, the book also contains a reference to Christopher Hudson and his wife Cary of Cumberland Parish. They sold 150 acres on the north side of Roanoke River adjoining John Clements, Thomas Robertson, and William Toms in 1746. There is another reference to Christopher in a tithing list from 1746 with Christopher Jr associated with him. Christopher is listed as a witness on several deeds in the town.

The book lists a Daniel, Ephraim, James, John, Peter, Richard, Robert, Samuel, and William. If you want any info on these folks let me know.
