It’s Family Time ~ Joe V. Streeter and Family


Family Time
In the 1940 Census for Morven, Anson County, North Carolina we find on page 214 the family of Joe and Lizzie Streeter.1
 
1940 Census -Joe & Lizzie



Joe Streeter, 1940 Census

Joe V. Streater is Joseph Vernon Streater, b. 4 October 1892, a son of William Boswell Streater and Mary Elizabeth Lampley.2

Lizzie is Winnie Elizabeth Deese, b. 10 September 1893, a daughter of John Calvin Deese and Sarah Frances Gathings.3
 
Winnie Elizabeth “Lizzie” Deese Streater was my great Aunt, half-sister to my Grandmother Lucy Pearl “Pearly” Deese Purvis.

Joe and Lizzie lived on a small farm east and north of Morven, North Carolina just off what today is known as Diggs Road. The house sat amidst a grove of pecan trees with water supplied from a well in the back yard. 

Between 1932 and 1934 Joe and Lizzie lost three infant sons. Then on 30 December 1945, Joe passed away from bronchial pneumonia. It was about this time that Aunt Lizzie’s unmarried sister, Cora Lee, moved into the home to help care for the children and other necessary duties on the farm. Aunt Cora never married and Aunt Lizzie never remarried.
As a young teenager, my family also lived on this road, about two miles from Aunt Lizzie home. Also living on the same road was my daddy’s brother and their children. We children spent many enjoyable hours visiting with Aunt Lizzie and Aunt Cora. Never did we ever visit when our great Aunts didn’t admonish us, as children, to stay away from the Well.  

Aunt Cora passed away in April 1968. Aunt Lizzie, left all alone, moved to Alabama to live with her daughter, Sarah and son-in-law Harold White.

Aunt Lizzie died in June 1980 while living in Alabama. Both Lizzie and Cora Lee  are buried along with my grandmother, their half-sister, Pearly in the Morven Cemetery, Morven, North Carolina.4 5

With the death of Sarah Streater White in 2013, all that left of this family is the grandchildren and great grandchildren of Joe and Lizzie and the memories of good times in the past. 

 White, Sarah Ann Streater

Sarah Ann Streater White, 82, died Tuesday, May 21 at her home after twelve courageous years of battling breast cancer.

White was born June 18, 1930, in Morven, North Carolina to the late Joseph Vinson Streater and Winnie Elizabeth Deese Streater. She and her late husband, Harold Brant White, lived in various places while he served in the United States Army. White worked as a Retail Manager with the Army and Air Force Exchange Service for over 23 years until her retirement.

A Young Presbyterian Divine Marries a Chesterfield Belle

 
Bride & Groom
Bailey-Hanna
A Young Presbyterian Divine Marries a Chesterfield Belle.
Special to the State.
Chesterfield, June 12.— There was a very beautiful wedding at Chesterfield last night. The Rev. Ephraim Bailey of Timmonsville and Miss Bessie Hanna of Chesterfield were married at the home of the bride’s father. The groom is the pastor of the Presbyterian church of Timmonsville and Hartsville, and the bride is the daughter of our esteemed fellow citizen, Mr. W. J. Hanna.
 
The spacious old home was tastefully decorated with ivy and other evergreens as a background, throwing out in relief the bridal ros├ęs and other white flowers, while here and there were grouped pot plants, ferns, etc., making a very lovely bower for the beautiful bride. 
 
At the appointed hour the guest assembled in the “marriage” room and on the pazza surrounding it and soon the strains of a wedding march were heard from an organ played by Mrs. Hanna, a relative of the bride. To this music the bridal couple marched from the hall into the centre of the room, an immediately underneath a monogram of lovely flowers formed by a union of the letters “H. and B.” While the music, sweet and low, continued the rev. A. H. McArn, pastor of the Presbyterian church of Cheraw, in an impressive manner united in holy wedlock these popular and accomplished young persons. 
 
The bride, who in a handsome blonde, wore a becoming costume of white organdie, veil and orange blossoms with a garniture of lace and ribbons. Her bouquet was of gardenias and bridal roses.
 
After congratulations and best wished the large assembly of friend were entertained right royally at the festive board of this home that for several generations has sustained an enviable reputation for hospitality.
 
When the guest began to disperse in wee small hours, it is with the sincere hope that this happy occasion but presaged the future of the new life of which it was the beginning.

Treasure Chest Thursday~Mining Genealogical Clues from Land Deeds

On September 1881, John Hinson, Sr. of Anson County, North Carolina gave his 11 year old Grandson Thomas Hinson Brooks a Negro Boy Peter about 16 years of age. This deed can be found in Anson County Deed Book “S”, page 215. 

John Hinson to Thomas H. Brooks
 
Sept 25,1818 .John Hinson Sr. (Anson County) to my grandson Thomas Hinson Brooks, now a minor 11 years on October last; for "high regard and affection" gave a Negro boy Peter about 16 years old on following condition:Peter will remain in "full and complete possession use and service " of myself and my wife Winefred Hinson during our lifetime or lifetime of the one of us that survives the other. if Brooks(for latter statement to make sense this must be-"if Brooks does not arrive at majority") arrives at majority before death of John and Winefred,then Peter is to be placed in the possession of my son-in-law James Streater who will hold Peter until "the majority of said Brooks" when Peter will be good and lawful property of Thomas H. Brooks to be placed in his possession by Streater; in consideration of the benefit allowed him by possession of Peter shall decently cloth and support said Brooks if Brooks arrives at majority prior to death of myself and wife; property of Peter will devolve to Brooks immediately on death of John and Winefred Hinson(signed)John Hinson's mark "P" or "C" with vertical line through it; witness Susannah T.Brooks and Merit Williams: Book S, page 215. 1 2
 
From a genealogical perspective this one land deed provides many clues about the John Hinson family:

  • John Hinson was a Senior; therefore there is a John Jr.
  • John Hinson, Sr. wife was Winefred
  • Thomas Hinson Brooks was his grandson thus one of John’s daughter married a “Brooks”
  • James Streater is a son-in-law; thus he is the husband of another daughter of John and Winefred
Ten years later, at age 21, we find the now mature, of legal age, Thomas Brooks as party to a land deed between himself and Vincent Parsons.

In this deed, found in Deed Book “X”, page 398, Thomas‘ position as an heir to the estate of John and Winefred are reaffirmed in that he is selling “all that piece or parcel of land lying and being in the County of Anson aforesaid on the waters of Jones Creek adjoining the lands of the sd. Vincent Parsons it being a lot of land that was on a division of lands belonging to the estate of the late John Hinson, Sr. decd. Among his heirs allotted to Elizabeth Brooks the mother of sd. Thomas Brooks which lot in the plan of division is marked No. 1.“
And we now know that:

  • Elizabeth Hinson Brooks is another daughter of John & Winefred and the Mother of Thomas Hinson Brooks
 
Thomas Brooks to Vincent Parsons 3

Richard J. Boan married Caroline Boan, a daughter of Jesse Boan and Catherine Elizabeth “Betty” Nelson. 

Richard like all other men of his age enlisted into the military on 20 December 1861 with Company “E”, 21st South Carolina Infantry for twelve months. At the start of this war everyone thought that it would be of a short duration. We know from history it was not a short war and lingered for years.2
 
On 10 July 1863, Richard received a “double-dose” of misfortune – He was injured (flesh wound, right jaw) and he was captured. 

These misfortunes were short-lived and he was exchanged on 24 July 1863 and returned to Southern forces and admitted to the hospital for care.

His definition of Amanuensis is:
Amanuensis: A person employed to write what another dictates or to copy what has been written by another.

 
Today’s subject is a 1847 Land Deed between Jacob Ellis Rebecca Ann Ellis Charles Bone to Elisha Ellis.

Jacob Ellis Rebecca Ann Ellis Charles Bone to Elisha Ellis –Deed

The heirs at law of Archibald Ellis are selling off the estate land, a 400 acre plat, to Elisha Ellis for eighty five ($85) dollars. Jacob, Rebecca Ann and Rachel (wife of Charles Boan) are clearly the children and heirs at law of Archibald Ellis.  Selling the 400 acres to Elisha for a mere eighty-five dollars suggests that he may also be a sibling.

It’s Family Time~Marcus “Mark” I. Huneycutt Family


Family Time
Marcus I. "Mark" Huneycutt was born about 1797 in Montgomery County, North Carolina.1 His parents are not known and have been a high priority for my research time. Mark and his family appeared in the 1830 census for Cabarrus County, North Carolina. By 1850, he had moved to Stanly County, NC and acquired a 100 acre Grant from the State. From 1850 through 1860 he was enumerated in Stanly County census. 2 3 4 5 6 Mark died sometime before the 1870 Census.7
 
Marcus I. "Mark" Huneycutt and Charity Dry were married on 18 Mar 1822.8 Charity Drye was born about 1803. 9 10
 
Marcus I. Huneycutt and Charity Dry had the following children:
 
i. Wiley Huneycutt, born 16 Jan 1823; married Elizabeth Brooks.
ii. Tobias A. Huneycutt, born abt 1824, Stanly County, North Carolina; married Elizabeth Mariam Huneycutt, 7 Nov 1852, Stanly County, North Carolina.
iii. David M. Huneycutt, born abt 1828; married Edith Underwood.
iv. William Riley Huneycutt, born Mar 1830; married Lydia Brooks, 14 May 1851, Stanly County, North Carolina.
v. Sarah "Sallie" Huneycutt, born abt 1831.
vi. James W. Huneycutt, born 26 Apr 1833, Cabarrus Country, North Carolina; married Sarah Elizabeth Page, 20 May 1855, Stanly County, North Carolina; died 19 Nov 1896, Chesterfield, Chesterfield, South Carolina.
vii. Martin I. Huneycutt, born 14 Dec 1835, Montgomery County, North Carolina; married Unicey [LNU].
viii. Elizabeth "Bettie" Huneycutt, born abt 1838; married John Furr.
ix. Beada Huneycutt, born abt 1842; married Nathan T. Starnes, 6 Apr 1882, Stanly County, North Carolina.
 
The children are all named within the Probate file of Marcus I Huneycutt. What is not known is when, where and how both Mark and Charity passed away. I know it was before 1880. Marcus is not listed in the 1870 Census but Charity is; neither is listed in 1880 Census. 
 
The discovery of Marcus as the father of my 2nd Great Grandfather, James W. Huneycutt is a very recent find, so much work remains to be done on this family and the identification of Marcus and Charity’s parents. 
 
Marcus and Charity Huneycutt are my paternal 3rd Great Grandparents.

Amanuensis Monday~Land Grant #88, Adam W. Honeycutt


Amanuensis Monday is a genealogy blogging theme. It was started by John Newmark who writes the TransylvanianDutch blog.


His definition of Amanuensis is:
Amanuensis: A person employed to write what another dictates or to copy what has been written by another.


Today’s subject is a Stanly County, NC Land Grant to Adam W. Honeycutt.1

File 88, Grant 89

Adam W. Honeycutt
State of North Carolina
File# 88 Grant #88 Know ye that we have granted unto Adam W. Honeycutt Sixty four acres of Land in Stanly County, on Hartsills Branch adjoining George Honeycutt & others Beginning at a small black gum by two black jacks and a Red Oak Levi K. Honeycutts’ corner and runs with his line reverse North Eighty eight and a half East seventy one chains crofsing Hartsills Branch to a Stake near George Honeycutts corner pine, thence North five West three chains pafsing his corner pine to a dead pine by a red Oak and black jack, thence with his line again North Seventy five West forty two chains to a Stake by a dogwood and red Oak, thence South ninety, West thirty five chains to the Beginning. Entered the 13th day of May 1844. To Hold to the said Adam W. Honeycutt his heirs and afsigns forever. Dated the 9th day of December 1844.
Wm. Hill, Secretary                                     A. M. Morehead


The Land Grant above was entered on 13 May 1844. 

Adam W. Honeycutt named within this Land Grant had not been identified. 

Levi K. Honeycutt married Elizabeth “Betsy” Cagle. Their first born son, was named Adam William Honeycutt, b. 26 October 1829. In 1844, this would make Adam William Honeycutt only 14-15 years of age, much to young to be the landholder named within this Land Grant. No other Andrew W. Honeycutt has been found so it’s possible that this Andrew W. may have fudged on his age. Further research in Stanly County land deeds is necessary to sort this out.

This record contains 8 individual pages including the two you see posted here.

Obituary Sunday~George R. Boatwright


George BOATWRIGHT - Frank Teal is in the county jail charged with murder of his friend Geo. Boatright, Christmas eve night near Westfield Creek church. It seems that Frank Teal, Geo. Boatright, Ben Brock and Robert Teal, brother to Frank were returning from a Christmas tree at Westfield Creek church about 8 o'clock Dec. 24th Teal and Boatright were walking together, the other boys a little distance away. At the coroner's inquest all the boys testified that there had been no quarreling or hard feelings when they heard Boatright say, "You ought not to make me bleed like that." When they reached the spot they found Boatright on the ground bleeding badly. Teal was arrested a short while later at the home of relatives in the neighborhood. Officers state that he was clearly under the influence of liquor when arrested. He is said to deny any knowledge of the affair and claims he and Boatright were the best of friends. The coroner's physician found that death had been produced by a knife thrust in the neck severing an artery from which death came very quickly.1
