Trying to find John Wellons who before 1773 married Mary Bailey daughter of William Bailey in Southampton Co., VA. Looking for information on Mary. Mary had siblings John, Barnaby, Lucy and Sarah.

Was your John Wellons, husband of Mary Bailey, born Oct. 19, 1725 in York Co., VA to John and Annamariah Wellens? Did he have a son named Robert who married a woman named Prudence? If so, I think there may be a connection with the Wellons' branch I am researching.

Yes, the John Wellons we are researching was the son of John and Annamariah Wellons of Southampton (RoundHill) Virginia. We found his Will and it lists his children as William, Benjamin and Rebecca (who married a Exum). In some records, we find where there are about 10 children listed, but we can not find if they are all his or maybe his brothers children. As his Will only lists 3. There is no doubt we are looking for the same family. I also have several email addresses of others trying to straighten everybody out. My email address is lkstraus@muscanet.com (it starts with a small "L" not an i).

John was born Oct. 19, 1775 in York Co., VA--source: Landon C. Bell, History & Registry of Charles Parish, York Co., VA (Births 1648-1789; Deaths 1665-1785), pg. 194 "Willions, John, son of John by Ann, b. Oct. 19, bap. Nov. 21, 1725." He died in 1790 in Southampton Co., VA--source Wills & Administrations, Southampton co., VA 1773-1778, Book 4, pg. 393 & 404. Will dated July 16, 1784; received Dec. 10, 1790. In his will he names his wife, Mary, sons William, Benjamin (they are named as executors), daughter Rebecca Exum, wife of Robert. Estate inventory was received Feb. 1791. Other places I have found John mentioned: In Wills & Administration, Southampton Co., VA 1749-1800, John is mentioned in his father's will, dated 1773, received 1778. John was given the family plantation which consisted of 250 acres +/- adjoining the James River. Other sources: Revolutionary War Public Service Claims: Southampton Co. Court Booklet, pg. 16, Cert. 1; Commissioner Book, Book V, pg. 183; Southampton Personal Property Taax, 1787, list B--listed as John Sr.
John's son Benjamin was born c. 1762 in Southampton Co. and died in Smithfield, N.C. c. 1799. guessing his date of birth because he married Lucretia Clarke Feb. 26, 1783 in Southampton Co., VA--I was thinking he was probably at least 21 when he got married. Source of marriage info: (1) Some VA Marriages 1700-1799, v. 21 & (2) Ministers' Return, pg. 632.Benjamin served in VA Regiment in Revolutionary War. He & Lucretia had 7 children. He & his wife are buried in the Old Wellons Plantation in NC.
John's son William was probably born between 1763-1764 in Southampton Co., VA--guess based on source: Marriages of Southampton Co., VA 1750-1810, pg. 36...Winess Samuel Kello & Surety for William was Robert Exum--this makes me believe William must not have been 21 at time of his marriage. He married Anna Vasser on Feb. 25, 1784 in Southampton Co. Marriages of SH Co., the last name is spelled Willions. Another source, Some VA Marriages 1700-1799, v. 13-15, & 23, name spelled Wellons. Electronic search found marriage listed in Southampton County Marriage Bonds and Consents, 1782-1971 (ree. #47--that is probably through Library of VA. William died in 1806 in Southampton Co. Source: Wills & Administration, SH Co., VA 1803-1810, Book 6, pg. 107. In his will dated June 1806 and signed with his mark, he names his wife Mary, chioldren Anna Wellons, Peggy, Willilam Baily, Willes, Hartwell, & Polly. Executors: Mary Wellons, John Hl. Pond, & Wm. B. Wellons. Witnesses: Richard Pond,Sr., Richard Pond, & Peter Wellons. Some of the children are underage.
Now where do you & your information fit in?

John-Annemoriah's 2nd son Henry Wellons

Soule' Thank you for your paragraphs about the oldest son John (wife Mary Bailey) & his decendents. John's brother, Henry, died without naming his children, but through land deeds I've traced my ancestor from Kentucky, Henry, to father, Henry, in Southampton County, VA (died 1784) with his land being equally divided amongst his children-one fifth part. I don't know who the other 4 are so I'm figuring out who they aren't.
Henry & Elenor/Elender had at least 5 children with my Henry born between 1766 & 1770. A land deed written 1 Feb 1813 by Henry Wellons of Pulaski County Kentucky giving power of attorney to Robert Wellons of Southampton Co for his land to be sold to his brother, John. The transaction took place on 17 Jan 1814 with Robert Wellons selling 200 acres of land to John Wellons as instucted by Henry Wellons of Pulaski County KY. Henry & Elenor/Elender have children out there unknown to each other. If you can help, please provide a puzzle piece so the siblings can make a connection.

John Wellons, son of John Mary Bailey Wellons

Judy, The only other lead I'm working on is in what is now WVA--Monogalia which was part of VA back then. John Wellons owned land in that area. That is as far as that has gotten. Will take info you gave me about your Henry being born between 1766-1770. See what I can come up with here. Am hoping I will get chance to get over to Southampton Co. this summer, but no definite plans at this time. Soule'
