Henry & Mary Sorrow (1755) Ancestors

Henry & Mary Sorrow (1755) Ancestors

Classification: Query
Some time ago, I received info from a Kidd descendant that the parents of Henry Sorrow were William Sorrow and Sarah Hines. This Kidd was a descendant of Sarah Sorrow, daughter of Henry and Mary. Her first husband was Zachariah Kidd.

I also was told that the father of William Sorrow (father of Henry) had a brother named John. Does anyone have any of the above info.

The father of Sarah Hines was William Hines Sr.

I am a descendant of Sarah E Sorrow (daughter of Henry and Mary) and her second husband, James Brabbin.

Hello,
Below is my info on the earliest Sorrow generations in Georgia. I have never seen the evidence that Sarah Sorrow's maiden name was HINES-any idea where that came from? Who were James Brabbin & Sarah Sorrow's children?
Keith Moody

Descendants of ? Sorrow


Generation No. 1

1. ?1 Sorrow

Notes for ? Sorrow:
Middlesex Co Va Church Records show that Samuel and Mary Sorrow had a daughter named Mary in 1732 and a son Samuel in 1735. In 1736, Mary Sorrow married Duel Kidd and they had several children. I am not sure but I suspect that Samuel and Mary are also the parents of William & John who came to Georgia. And I think that Samuel died and that his widow remarried to Duel Kidd. NEED PROOF!

Children of ? Sorrow are:
+ 2 i. William2 Sorrow, born Bef. 1730; died Bet. 1800 - 1802 in Oglethorpe Co GA.
3 ii. John Sorrow, died Aft. 1814 in Oglethorpe Co GA. He married Priscilla Reinard-Eades 1795 in Oglethorpe Co GA; died Aft. 1806 in Oglethorpe Co GA.

Notes for John Sorrow:
John moved from Albemarle Co VA to Wilkes Co GA about 1785 with his brother William Sorrow. John married late in life to Mrs Priscilla Eades, widow of John Eades. In an 1806 deed, John and Priscilla agreed to leave all their property to Priscilla's son Reinard Eades when they died.
He was sometimes referred to as John Sorrow Sr in Wilkes/Oglethorpe Co Tax Records to distinguish him from his nephew John Webb Sorrow.
In 1814, John Sorrow sold his "entire estate" of 200 acres on Millstone Creek and slaves to Joseph C Glenn with the condition that Mr Glenn should "maintain me from this day during life".


Generation No. 2

2. William2 Sorrow (?1) was born Bef. 1730, and died Bet. 1800 - 1802 in Oglethorpe Co GA. He married Sarah ?.

A descendant of the Kidd family gave me the info that Sarah's maiden name was Hines and that her father was William Hines Sr. My computer had problems last year and when they backed up my data they did not go my addresses so I cannot tell you who told me.

I can point you to the Will of William Hines Sr in Oglethorpe Co GA where he names his daughter "Elizabeth Sorrow". If you will go to Google.com, and put in - "William Hines" AND "Oglethorpe Georgia" - it pulls up his Will.

I have put out another query and hope that the person who gave me that info sees it and responds so that I can get additional info.

The children of James Brabbin and Sarah Sorrow were:
1. Stacy Ann Brabbin b 4 Nov 1809 Henry Co GA. She m Isaiah Dodson 21 Jan 1830 Jasper Co GA.
2. Mary Brabbin b 1810 Ogletghorpe Co GA. She m William Whitley 17 Aug 1837 Henry Co GA. On the 1850 Henry Co GA Census, S Brabbin was living with William and Mary Whitley.
3. Henry S. Brabbin b abt 1812 m 1) Jane Hollingworth and they had six children. The family can be found on the1850 Hamilton Co GA Census. But, something happened and they are not on the 1860 Census.

From what I can piece together, Jane must have died because the younger children appear on the 1860 Clark Co AR Census living with Elizabeth Goodman (a grandmother?). Goodman was her second marriage. But on 5 Jan 1863, Henry S Brabbin m Tempy in Warren Co TN. Based on the age, it appears that this was the remarriage of the father.

I descend from the daughter of Henry Brabbin and Jane Hollingsworth - Jane Brabbin b 1850 TN.

I tried to follow your lead. I went to Google but I did not find a will of William Hines in Oglethorpe Co Ga. I DID find a site that said that William Hines died in Sussex Co VA leaving a will naming daughter Elizabeth Sorrow.
However, I went to the US GenWEb site and pulled up the will of William HInes in Sussex Co VA 1760 and there was no Elizabeth Sorrow listed. More confusion.

Interesting that Sally Sorrow-Kidd-Brabbin moved to Henry Co GA. Her brother James Sorrow moved there in the early 1840's.

Brabbin is a rare name but I was wondering-how do you know that your Henry is the son of James & Sally Brabbin? Did either of them leave an estate record?

James Brabbin gave 90 acres in Lot #159 Dist 11 Henry Co, to his son, Henry S Brabbin, in 1835. James Brabbin had purchased 202 1/2 acres Lot #159 Dist 11 Henry Co in 1822. Up until sometime in the mid 1900s, all of the Brabbins were from the same family. At that time, a Brabbin family moved in from Canada to the NE area of the states. I have found that all of the other Brabbins descend from one son of Henry S Brabbin. Henry and Sarah had two sons but one died in prison as a Confederate soldier and had never married. The other son was William Jefferson Brabbin. William had two sons, Wm Jr and George Washington Brabbin named after his dead brother. One of these branches moved to the West Coast and the other is basically in the Southwest.

That is interesting that the info is different in the two Wills that are online. The one that I have seen is from the "Duval Trails." (I hope I have that name right) I will look at the other. Thanks.
