It’s Family Time~Phillip Wiley Dry


It's Family Time












Phillip Wiley Dry is my 4th Great Grand Uncle

Phillip Wiley Dry was born on 10 Jul 1759 in Upper Hanover, Montgomery, Pennsylvania, a son of Karl Charles DUERR and his wife Christina Muss. Their surname was anglicized to DRY after arriving in the United States.  

Phillip Wiley had two older brothers one of which was my 4th Great Grand father and a younger brother and sister; four siblings.  

They migrated from Pennsylvania and settled in Mecklenburg County prior to the first US Census. Phillip Wiley and his wife is enumerated in the 1790 census for Mecklenburg County, North Carolina;

1790 CENSUS: Mecklenburg, North Carolina; Series: M637; Roll: 7; Image: 543; Family History Library Film: 0568147, Page: 370; Line 4; Phillip DRY, Male over 16 years of age and 1 Female {Wife Catherine ?? [LNU]]. 

The 1820 Census shows that Phillip and Catherine had 5 sons and 3 daughters.  I have identified four of these eight children but some trees' on-line have names listed for all 8 children. 

Phillip Wiley Dry and Catherine [LNU] had the following children:
 
i. Joseph Dry was born on 10 Oct 1797.
ii. Solomon Dry, born abt 1798; married Esther Melchor, 11 Dec 1821, Cabarrus County, North Carolina; died bef Oct 1857, Cabarrus County, North Carolina.
iii. Abraham Dry, born 19 Oct 1804, Cabarrus County, North Carolina; married Mary Catherine Harkey, 27 Feb 1830, Cabarrus County, North Carolina; died 3 Apr 1865, Mount Pleasant, Cabarrus, North Carolina.
iv. Barbara Dry, born 19 Jan 1812, Cabarrus County, North Carolina; married Adam Eli Harkey b: 7 Oct 1831, Cabarrus County, North Carolina; died 6 Aug 1888, Yell County, Arkansas.
 
These 4 children are also listed as children of Phillip and Catherine but as of today I have found no proof for this connection.
  • Lawrence Dry
  • Mathias Dry
  • Sally Dry
  • Mary Dry
Phillip Dry died 14 December 1837 according to the date on his tombstone (Find A Grave Memorial# 123888267). Phillip is buried at Cold Springs United Methodist Church Cemetery in Concord, Cabarrus County, North Carolina. This is the only source known for the death of Phillip Dry. 

Catherine Dry was enumerated with Phillip in the 1830 census for Cabarrus County. No death date has been found for her.

Military Veteran~Pvt. Henry Riley Dry


Henry Riley Dry was born on 5 Oct 1828, a son of Solomon Dry and Esther Melchor. He was the fourth child of nine born to Solomon and Esther. He had 4 brother and 4 sisters.
Henry Riley is enumerated with his dad in 1850 and listed as a farmer and in 1860 his occupation is that of a day laborer.

On 6 January 1852, Henry Riley married Leah Hurlocker, born abt 1829, daughter of David B. Hurlocker and Catharine Mayer.

When the Civil War broke out Henry waited a while before finally enlisting on 6 July 1862 with Company ‘H’, 57th Regiment North Carolina Infantry led by Capt. Wm. H. Howerton. He became sick and was admitted to the Hospital at Richmond on October 11, 1862. His military records shows that he died from  Vesicular Bronchitis* on 16 October 1862.

Henry Riley Dry deathH. R. Dry-Fold3_Page_12_Compiled_Service_Records_of_Confederate_Soldiers

When writing about a NC Civil War veteran I always check North Carolina Troops, 1861-1865: A Roster  is see what it has to say about the soldier. Here is the Henry Riley Dry Entry from Volume 14, page 184.

DRY, HENRY R. Private
Resided in Cabarrus County and was by occupation a day laborer prior to enlisting in Cabarrus County at age 31, July 6, 1862, for the war. Hospitalized at Richmond, Virginia, October 8, 1862. Died in hospital at Richmond on October 16, 1862, of “vesicular bronchitis.”
 
No document has been found that shows where Private Henry Dry was buried but in most cases, soldiers who died in hospitals in Richmond were buried in the Confederate portion of Hollywood Cemetery. 

It is not known what happened to Henry’s wife Leah and his children. I looked but was unable to find them in the following census. I suspect she remarried to have someone to help her care for the children. If you know what happen to Leah Hurlocker Dry after the Civil War please contact me or leave a comment here on this blog post. 

 Henry Riley Dry is my 2nd Cousin 4 times removed.

Treasure Chest Thursday~Has McCarroll & Joseph B. Sellers Mother Been identified?


In 2002 James C. Pigg published a book on the descendants of Hardy Sellers my 4th Great Grandfather. The book entitled “DESCENDANTS OF HARDY SELLERS: BORN MARCH 2, 1757 IN JOHNSTON COUNTY, NC, DIED JANUARY 12, 1835 IN CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, SC”. The book contains 424 pages with lineage details on many of the descendants of Hardy Sellers down to modern day. 

While doing research for this book it was realized that at least two known Sellers families did not seem to fit within the Hardy Sellers blood line.Those two families were:
  • Joseph B. Sellers and his wife Edarkis Jane Mungo 
and
  • McCarroll Sellers and his wife  Eliza Louisa Jordan
Up until this month no one has come forward with any additional information on the parentage of these two individuals – McCarroll and Joseph B. Sellers.

In my preparation to write an article for my July 17 posting I chose to write on the estate file of Flora Sellers. Prior to opening this folder on FamilySearch I had no idea how Flora Sellers would fit within the Sellers Lineage.  I wrote about her estate folder here:

http://carolinafamilyroots.blogspot.com/2016/07/chesterfield-county-sc-estatesestate_17.html

The folder #454 turned out to be a possible turning point in the research of McCarroll and Joseph B. Sellers. One document within this folder shows that Flora McNair Sellers had two surviving distributees – McCarroll and J. B. Sellers. 

J. B. Sellers








If Flora McNair is the mother of McCarroll and Joseph B., then who were their father?  Further research is needed to identify the male Sellers that was Flora’s husband. Finally, we have someone to research that is most likely the mother of these two men.

Amanuensis Monday~James L. Edwards to W. A. Purvis, Land Deed, 60 Acres.


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 Land Deed from James L. Edwards to W. A. Purvis, Land Deed, 60 Acres.1

In the 1860 census for Anson County, North Carolina we find William A. Purvis and his wife Sarah Jane [Graves] Purvis with no children and his occupation listed as a Shoemaker. In 1870, same county, he is listed as a farmer. 

The first piece of land that I have found purchased by William A. Purvis was a 30 acre tract sold to him by  Joseph P. Smith on 6 December 1866. Description of that parcel is as follows:
“that piece parcel and tract of land situate lying and being in the District of Chesterfield and State of South Carolina on the North Side of Big Westfield Creek and bounded on the North by the North and South Carolina State line on the East by Isham Wallace and James Lewis lands on the West by lands belonging to the Estate of George Gardner and lands belonging to John Mulholland and on the South by Big Westfield Creek. Containing thirty [30] acres more or less which said track of land was purchased by me from Joseph P. Smith Reference being had to a plat hereunto attached will fully show the corners distance and &c. of said tract of land….
 
The second tract of land purchased by William A. Purvis was this 60 acres tract from James L. Edwards on 21 December 1871.  William A. Purvis owned land located on the state line. In the plat below the bottom wide line is the state line. The land was located west of Westfield Church Road as you cross the state line going into North Carolina toward McFarland. (see Blue Square, NC Side, west of 1837 Road)

It’s Family Time~Benjamin ‘Bennie’ Franklin Johns


It's Family Time
Benjamin ‘Bennie’ Franklin Johns was born on 4 Mar 1927, a son of Julius Johns and Mary Catherine “Mamie” Brock. He was the 7th child born to this union and join his living siblings, three brothers and two sisters.  

At age 10, his Father, Julius, was killed while walking home from work. Thirteen months later at age 11, he lost his Mother. His older brothers and sisters, but mainly his older sister Mary, cared for him until the age of majority. 

On 21 March 1952, Bennie married Ottis Faye Lee, a young divorcee with two young daughters. This union ended in divorce on 19 June 1972. No children were born of this union. 

Sometime after his divorce from Ottis Faye, Bennie met and married Sarah Clementine Robinson Mobley. They lived in Lexington, South Carolina. To date I have not found a marriage date for their marriage. I suspect that it took place somewhere in South Carolina most likely in Lexington, South Carolina. No known children were born to this union.

On 1 May 2001, at the age of 74, Benjamin Franklin ‘Bennie’ Johns died in Lexington County, South Carolina. Both he and Sarah are buried at Grandview Memorial Park, Rock Hill, York County, South Carolina. 

Benjamin Franklin ‘Bennie’ Johns is my Uncle.

Chesterfield County Military Veterans~Returning Home from WWI


Today’s posting is a news article from The State, a Columbia, SC newspaper. Two men from Chesterfield were presented with Distinguished Service Crosses during the event. 

Chesterfield Men -WWI
CHESTERFIELD MEN WELCOMED HOME
Thousands Present for Exercises in Cheraw
TYSON MAKE SPEECH
General Quotes Pershing to Prove that Thirtieth Division Broke Hindenburg Line.

Special to the State
Cheraw, July 13 – All roads led to Cheraw Thursday and thousands of people came to welcome home Chesterfield’s boys who served in the army or navy in the world war. At 9 o’clock all these registered at Civic league Hall and were given free tickets to all events of the day. At 10 o’clock the moving picture shows began, and showed continuously until 11 o’clock Thursday night. Hall’s band gave a concert on the green and a game of baseball was played at the ball park between Marion and Cheraw, Cheraw winning, 4 to 1.
The principle feature of the day was the speaking which began at 11:30. After prayer by the Rev. A. S. Thomas, ex-senator W. P. Pollock, welcomed the soldiers and the people and introduced Congressman W. F. Stevenson, who decided to forgo the pleasure of hearing the president’s peace treaty message to be here to welcome the boys of Chesterfield County home to their firesides. He outlined the history of Chesterfield County in every war that this country has ever had and showed that in patriotism, valor and efficient service the men of Chesterfield County always went over the top.
General Tyson Speaks.
Senator Pollock then introduced Maj W. L. Gillespie, who, bring in his home town, excused himself from speaking and introduced Brig. Gen. L. D. Tyson of the famous Thirtieth Division. Gen Tyson told of the deeds of this division in breaking the Hindenburg lines; how they massed 5,000 guns and 50 tanks and were told to go forward; how they went forward in the face of hell, and went through it, and miles beyond the line. He gave the testimony of General Pershing and of a British officer that it was the Thirtieth Division that first broke this line, and not the Twenty-seventh (of New York) as New York papers would have us believe.
Brigadier General Faison had been delegated by the Washington authorities to present distinguished service crosses to Sergt. Robert M. McDonald of Cheraw and Corp. Lawrence Caulder of Kollock, both members of Company I, One Hundred and Eighteenth Infantry, for extraordinary heroism near Brancourt [France].
Dinner on Green.
At 2 o’clock a basket dinner was served on the Green by the Red Cross chapters of Chesterfield County. Although nearly every basket and lunch box contained some meat, 2,000 pounds of beef and pork had been barbecued for the occasion by R. J. Little.
The afternoon was given to dancing, baseball and a band concert on the Green. Ice cream was also served to the soldiers by the local chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
At 9:30 p.m. a complimentary dance was given the ex-service men which was attended by large crowds from North Carolina towns and from Bennettsville.
The Chiquola Club rooms had been reserved as a rest room for ladies and were in charge of the local U. D. C. chapter.
The day passed off smoothly and all were pleased with the success of the program.
 

Not only were the men welcomed home but I want you to focus on two home town hero’s that were honored during the festivities.  
 
General Faison… delegated…to present distinguished service crosses to Sergt. Robert M. McDonald of Cheraw and Corp. Lawrence Caulder
 
While these men were honored and given a very fine homecoming; Lest not forget those from Chesterfield County who also “Gave Their All” in service to our nation.

Treasure Chest Thursday~Delayed Birth Certificate~Lizzie Jane Sellers


While many of the New England states had procedures for documenting births, marriage and death such a system was not in use in  many of the newly formed states as they were admitted to the union. Thus laws were enacted in the early 1900 to formally documents these events. 

In South Carolina, officials started documenting marriage in 1911 followed by birth and death in 1915. Procedures were also implemented to obtain a delayed birth certificate. This ‘Delayed Birth Certificate’ was issued when sufficient proof was provided showing that a birth occurred. Rarely was there a need for a birth certificate but with the development of our Military and implementation of the Social Security Act the birth certificate became a vital document.    

The Delayed Birth Certificate shown here is for Elizabeth Jane ‘Lizzie Jane” Sellers Huneycutt daughter of James Arnold ’Buck’ Sellers and his wife Nancy Jane ‘Jennie’ Johnson. Elizabeth Jane ‘Lizzie Jane” Sellers Huneycutt  applied for the delayed birth certificate and it was issued on 16 Oct 1956. The application contains significant genealogical data.  

Elizabeth Jane ‘Lizzie Jane” Sellers Huneycutt  was born 3 August 1900 in Chesterfield, Chesterfield County, SC. Her parents were James Arnold sellers who died at age 54 and Nancy Jane Johnson who was 95 when she passed. Both parents are deceased. Her birth was proven by the oath of Spencer Sellers and Luther Baker. With today’s rules this would be insufficient to prove the birth of Elizabeth Jane Sellers.

The South Carolina, Delayed Birth Records, 1766-1900 and City of Charleston, South Carolina, Birth Records, 1877-1901 is one of my favorite databases. Generally, I just plug in a surname and county of birth and search away. I have found some wonderful information in this database. 

It’s available on-line at Ancestry which is a paid account website. If you have an account it can be accessed here:

Chesterfield County SC Estates~Estate Folder #454–Flora Sellers

 

This is a new series of posting, appearing every Sunday, on selected Estate Folders from the Estate files of Chesterfield County. No known estates exist for the period before the Civil War. They were destroyed with the burning of the Courthouse. There are a few “Equity Records” in the State Archives. Do not overlook this valuable resources if you are looking for ancestors in Chesterfield County, South Carolina.
Today we will be looking at the following Estate folders:
Folder #454
Flora Sellers
This estate folder begins at image #1439 and ends with image #1460. (images 1439-1460)
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1-19420-62491-99?cc=1911928

On 14 November 1884, Flora Sellers, age 86, died in Chesterfield County, South Carolina leaving a small personal estate. 

While Flora had at least two sons, Calvin B. McNair requested Letters of Administration from the Probate Courts.  

Flora Sellers Letters

Transcription:
State of South Carolina } Court of Probate
County of Chesterfield}
In the Matter Petition for
of Letter of
The Estate of Flora Sellers Administration
Deceased
The petition of Calvin B. McNair Respectfully shows to this Court that Flora Sellers departed a resident of the County and state aforesaid departed this life on or about the 14th of November 1884 leaving a small Personal Estate and Letters of Administration upon Said Estate is necessary in order that Said Estate may be settled the Debts paid and the remainder of Said Estate if any be Distributed among her heirs at law and your petitioner will Ever pray&c.
                                                                            C. B. McNair

The Estate folder consists of 21 images. Image 1450 of the estate names two distributees, sons of Flora Sellers – McCarroll Sellers and J. B. Sellers.  
 
Flora Sellers Distributive Shares.







Transcription:
By amt paid E. S. Davis afc 10.21
‘’ “ “ J. B. Sellers in full
of my distributive share of Estate 5.00
“ “ paid McCarroll Sellers his
distributive share of Estate 5.00
“ “ paid State & county taxes 6.49
 
For many years, Sellers researchers have looked for the parents of McCarroll Sellers without any success.  Clearly this probate folder indicates that Flora Sellers could be the mother of both McCarroll and J. B. Sellers. 
 
Since Flora was born about 1798 and her administrator Calvin B. McNair was born in 1842 it very likely that Flora was a McNair and his aunt.  She may also be a sister to his father Alexander McNair. 
 
This is the first clue this writer has ever found that would suggest a connection to McCarroll Sellers. McCarroll married  Eliza Louisa Jordan and is believed to have passed away between 1880 and 1900. 

Image 1440 shows that a tombstone was purchased for Flora Sellers’ grave yet in all the surveys done in Chesterfield County, SC no tombstone has been documented for Flora.

It’s Family Time~Ella Frances Purvis

 

clip_image001

http://carolinafamilyroots.blogspot.com/2016/07/its-family-timemary-jane-purvis.html

In the above posting I introduced you to the concept that William A. Purvis was twice married; discuss his second wife – Elizabeth ‘Betsy’ Purvis – and documented the family of her oldest daughter, Mary Jane Purvis Lang.  
 
Remember that in the 1880 Census, Betsy and her daughter Mary J. was listed as Family 252 in the same Dwelling  233 as William A. and Sarah J. Purvis (Family 251). No husband was present nor has a husband been identified for Betsy prior to the September 1899 Land Deed (DB 33, pg 370). 
 
Purvis 1880

We do know that the Anson County Land Deed (DB 33, pg 370) identified Elizabeth ‘Betsy’ Purvis as the wife of William A. Purvis. We also know that William A. married Sarah Jane Graves on 19 June 1852 and that Sarah Jane died on 31 December 1893. 

Therefore, if William did in fact remarry it had to occur between 1 Jan 1894 and 23 Sept. 1899. Yet, in the 1900 census, we find Betsy with another daughter, Ella Frances Purvis, b. 25 September 1881.  

1900 Census - Anson County



This little snippet from the 1900 Census contains significant information; but, there is also conflicting information.
  • Elizabeth Purvis is was Widow (the census date is 28 June 1900
  • Elizabeth had 2 children 1 living; Mary J. and Ella Frances Purvis
  • Elizabeth was born in Oct. 1860; Ella Frances was born in Dec. 1886
We still find no mention of any husband prior to the 1890’s so Who is the father of Elizabeth ‘Betsy’ children – Mary J. and Ella Frances. 

When was Elizabeth ‘Betsy’ born in 1880 she is age 30; in 1900 she is age 39, born Oct. 1860.  Elizabeth ‘Betsy’ was still living on the Purvis farm in 1900.

On 14 August 1904, daughter Ella Frances married  Thomas T. Tarlton in Chesterfield County, South Carolina. 

On 30 September 1900, Betsy gives up her life estate in the 19 acres William A. Purvis left her selling the land to J. D. Rhyne for a measly $50.00 dollars. (DB 34, Page 491-492, Betsy Purvis to J. D. Rhyne, Anson Co., NC). Betsy moves in with Tom and Ella Tarlton. 

In the 1920 Census we find Ellen and Tom with 5 children and her Mother, Elizabeth Purvis, age 75, in the household all living in Rockingham, Richmond County, North Carolina.  Elizabeth in 1900 said she was born in October 1860; now in 1920 she is 75 years of age. That computes to a birth year of 1845. Elizabeth ‘Betsy” Purvis died on 18 October 1926. To add to the confusion her obituary states that she is 90 years old, a birth year of 1836. 

Mrs. Betsy Purvis
Mrs. Betsy Purvis, aged 90, died Oct. 18th in Great Falls village. The interment was at Mizpah the same day.


Tom and Ella had seven children; 2 daughters and 5 sons. I spent a lot of time talking on the phone and corresponding with the two daughters. 

While my family and Ella Frances family were from the same Grandparent it was as if neither knew anything of the other family. I can’t help to believe that William A. Purvis only son, my Great Grandfather William James Purvis, disapproved of his father’s remarriage, if a marriage occurred and kept it a family secret. 

I just had a 92 year old Aunt who passed away and she knew nothing of this family and great aunts that I talked to claimed to have no knowledge of what I was talking about. 

If you have any information om Elizabeth ‘Betsy’ Purvis and her two daughters, Mary Jane Purvis wife of Charlie Franklin Lang and Ella Frances Purvis, wife of Thomas T. Tarlton I would love to hear from you.

Miles Phillip Hurst~Where is He Buried?


Miles Phillip Hurst was born 15 February 1878 in Chesterfield County, SC to Philip James Hurst and Mary Ann Gainey. 

1n 1890, when Miles was a young lad of 14, his family migrated to Kingsland, Cleveland County Arkansas. There as a young man of 28, Miles Philip Hurst married Louise C. ‘Ludie’  Neal on 10 May 1906. 

By 1910 Miles Philip had moved his wife and family from Arkansas to Collin County, Texas and was listed as a farmer. By 1920, Miles Phillip had hired on as a laborer with the Steam Railroad  and had moved to Bryan County, Oklahoma.  

In the search for his death and burial we located a WWII  Draft Registration card dated 25 April 1942 at which time he was in Durant, Bryan county, Oklahoma. He was listed as age 64. 

MP HurstMP Hurst2

Our next clue was the location of his wife in a Galveston County, Texas City Directory where she was listed as a widow. 

Louise C. Hurst









This find led to the discovery of the graves of both Ludie and her son in the Galveston Memorial Park; but, no grave was found for Miles Philip Hurst. This also allowed us to narrow down the date range for the death of Miles Philip. We know from the WWII Draft card that Miles was alive on 25 April 1942 and that Louise C., ‘Ludie’ was a widow in 1947. Sometime between these two dates Miles Philip passed away. 

Tucked away in my database was this note: 

Cleveland County Herald Newspaper. The names have obituaries posted in the issue date displayed. This is an index only. If you are interested in obtaining the obituary for a person listed below, you must contact the Cleveland County Library. Email: clecolib@yahoo.com. As time allows, the staff will try to copy the obit and send it via email or U.S. mail. Please be specific, and supply the name, and date of the issue. Please limit your requests to one or two per week.ftp://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/ar/cleveland/obits/obitindex34_45.txt

This note is so old that the hyperlink is no longer valid but with the Internet Archives I was able to pull up a copy of the webpage.

I passed this data to my cousin who is a direct descendant of this line of Hurst and he used the information to write Cleveland County Arkansas Library and obtained a copy of the obit. He in turn passed the obit to me. 

In essence, is says that two brothers, Miles and Wesley died within 3 weeks of each other in Collin County, Texas and that Miles Philip Hurst died March 12. A Texas death certificate #6398 for Wesley shows that he died on 14 Feb. 1943.

Therefore Miles Philip Hurst died 12 March 1943 in Collin County, Texas. Yet, no Texas death certificate has been found for this event nor has a tombstone been located. 

I would like to know where Miles Philip Hurst is buried? If you know or can help in any way to determine conclusively when, where and if Miles Philip did  indeed die on 12 March 1943 and his place of burial it would be greatly appreciated.
