[NI0804] William Overall, son of John and Maria Christena Overall was born in Frede rick County, Virginia about 1753. Little is known of his early life, b ut in 1776 we find him on the Watauga River in East Tennessee, joini ng in a petition "To the Honorable Provincial Council of North Carolin a" to be annexed to that Province. When the inhabitants concluded to pla nt a permanent settlement on the Cumberland River, the Watauga Settlers ei ght man to go and plant corn, so the maturity of the corn in the fall wou ld supply the imigrants Upon their arrival. Wm. Overall was one of the m en chosen to go upon this perilous journey. They reached their destinati on in safety and planted the corn near the Sulphur Spring bottom, which sp ot is now within the City limits of Nashville, Tennessee. After the planti ng was done and other necessary work completed, all returned to Watauga ex cept Wm. Overall and two others, who remained to keep the buffalo and oth er things from destroying it. Among those that came out in the fall of 17 79 were Nathaniel and Robert Overall brothers of Wm. Overall, also two sis ters, Mary and Nancy. Mary married James Espy, and Nancy, Josua Thomas. Th ese three brothers and two brothers-in-law were steadfast defenders of t he settlement as the records show, Nathaniel being the only one out of t he five to die a natural death. Robert was the first to offer up his you ng life being killed by the Indians early in 1789. Overalls creek in Ruthe rford County was named for him.

Re: Mary Overall and James Espey. I also am a descendant of this line. Jam es' wife Mary Overall was a daughter of William Overall and Maria Christi na Froman not JOHN as you have listed. There remains much misinformation a bout this. William and John were brothers and their father was named Jo hn who died in 1742/3 in Prince William Co., VA. William left Prince Willi am returning from Frederick Co., VA to relinquish claim to his inheritan ce which had been left to him only as a "life estate". Legal record fil ed in 1749. He returned to Frederick Co. (Augusta Co., VA) and was list ed as a tithable in 1750 there. He bought land from Paul Froman, fath er of Maria Christina Froman although I do not have a legal document so st ating. Paul Froman's wife was Elizabeth Hite, daughter of Jost Hite and An na Maria Merckle. Several children of William and Maria Christina Overa ll came to Tennessee about 1779/80. Three of their sons, William, Nathanie l, and Robert came to Tennessee. Both William and Robert were killed by In dians. Nathaniel is my ancestor. Mary Overall, daughter of William and Mar ia Christina, married James Espy. That Mary (Espy) married Nathaniel and A nnie Thomas'
oldest son, Robert, who is also my ancestor. Thus Mary (Espy) married h er first cousin, Robert. Their home and her tombstone still stands in an O verall Cemetery near Murfreesboro. This Mary was called "Polly" and was bo rn in 1787. She was married on 27 December 1810 and died on 24 December 18 38 in Rutherford County. she is the one who is mentioned in James Espy's w ill as receiving 40 dollars. James Espy was not sheriff as stated. I track ed that down several years ago. From his will is appears that at the ti me of his death he was married to a "Caity" and had younger children th an those older ones who had married. In reading James Espy's will you wi ll see that he listed "his beloved friend Nathaniel Overall as one of h is executors." This will is in the Tennessee Archives on Book 2, Page 235- 238. Microfilm No. 239 or 259. I can't be certain. Would love to hear fr om you.

Could you post some of the evidence that indicates Maria Christina From an married William Overall rather than John Overall as usually stated. I h ave never seen the evidence for either Overall. The naming patterns oft en given for John's family would seem to favor the Fromans and isn't Jo hn often shown with a grandson having the middle name Froman? All a litt le puzzling. Thanks for your help.

Much confusion has abounded about the William Overall (b. ca. 1727) and Jo hn Overall (b. ca. 1735). Even noteworthy Virginia historians have perpetu ated the error. The truth is that William Overall (who mar. Maria Christi na Froman) and John Overall (who married his cousin, Frances Whitledge) a re brothers. At the death of their father John Overall SR, William, the ol der brother, was left property only for a life estate. At William's dea th all was to revert to his younger brother John. John Overall Sr died wh en John Jr. was about 7 years old (that's an educated guess) and his ca re was entrusted to John Overall Sr.'s brother Nathaniel. It seems possib le that William, who was older--maybe 18 or so had told his father th at he wanted to go further into the Virginia frontier lands or it al so is possible that his father thought ill of him. Whatever the reason, Wi lliam went into the frontier lands, came back to Prince William and sold h is "life estate" to his Uncle Nathaniel about 1749 (?). In that legal docu ment it is noted that William Overall was of the County of Frederick. So on after he was listed on a tax list. Records also show that he purchas ed land from Paul Froman, Maria Christina's father. Correction of this lin eage was made by other Overall cousins who were subscribers to a family ne wsletter, "Overalls All Over" that I published for about 5 years. I no lon ger publish the newsletter but I love the story of the Overalls. I am a de scendant of Nathaniel, a son of William and Maria Christina. I have been u nable to find a marriage record but the name Froman appears in some of the ir children. Send me a mailing address and I'll send other informati on if you're interested.

Dear Mr. Young: Yes, this confusion continues about the Overall family. T he facts are that the two men (families of them) spring from two brother s, William and John Overall. Their father, John Overall (SR.) died in 1741 /2 leaving son JOHN (JR) as the youngest son. In this will filed in Pr. W m. Co., VA JOHN (SR) willed to his oldest son (WILLIAM) only a life esta te in his property. The younger son (JOHN, JR.) was left to be cared f or by NATHANIEL, an older brother of JOHN, SR. JOHN (JR)'s age at this ti me was "estimated to be about 6 or 7 years old". While, WILLIAM, the old er brother, appeared to be "of an age to take care of himself." After t he death of JOHN (SR), WILLIAM OVERALL according to records has left Pr. W m. and returns about 1750 to Pr. Wm. and signs a legal document of sa le of his "life estate" (properties granted in JOHN (SR)'s will). The docu ment lists himself, a "Planter of Frederick" and sells his "life estate" f or 100 pounds sterling (?) to his "Uncle" NATHANIEL,apparently the caregiv er of his younger brother, JOHN (JR). NATHANIEL is identified as "of the P arish of Dettingen" and WILLIAM as living in Frederick Co. (VA). Soon ther eafter, WILLIAM is listed on a tax list in Frederick and he also purchas es property from PAUL FROMAN. PAUL FROMAN is married to ELIZABETH HITE, da ughter of HANS JUSTISS HEYDT (HITE). Their daughter, MARIA CHRISTINA, beco mes the wife of WILLIAM OVERALL. Although I have not found a copy of the ir marriage record, some of the children of WILLIAM bear the FROMAN nam e. Several of WILLIAM and MARIA CHRISTINA's children migrated to Tennesse e. Sons WILLIAM and NATHANIEL signed the Cumberland Compact at Fort Nashbo rough in 1780. Sons of JOHN (JR), namely WILLIAM and JOHN (III) remain ed in Pr. Wm. and JOHN (JR) appears on the Tax Rolls of Pr. Wm. until 177 9, when JOHN (JR) and his wife FRANCES WHITLEDGE moved into what was to be come the State of Kentucky. Briefly the two sons of JOHN (SR) -- WILLIAM ( the older) and JOHN (JR) became pioneers of the States of Tennessee and Ke ntucky, respectively. Please send your mailing adress if you would li ke to have some of this information. (I'm of the line of NATHANIEL OVERALL .). Eudine Britton

[NI0900] HITE
Jost Hite (Hans Joist Heydt), his wife Anna Maria Merckle, and the ir infant daughter Mary left their home in Bonfeld, Germany in 1709/10. O thers from their village, including Jost’s father and his family, also em igrated to America from Rotterdam at about the same time. Records show t he families settling near one another in the colony of New Yor
Settling first in the New York Colony, he moved to a large tra ct of land above Philadelphia where Germantown was later laid out. Origin ally a linen weaver, Hite was engaged in farming, weaving, and milli ng in Bucks County, and he built a mill and sold farms from his proper ty on the Schullkill River. Some of his transactions were with William Pe nn. In 1731, hearing of newly explored Indian lands available in the Virg inia Colony, he secured a grant for 100,000 acres in order to organize a s ettlement of 100 colonial families and fortify this trackless territory ly ing west of the Blue Ridge Mountains. His character is revealed by his re fusal to bow to rent demands of the powerful Lord Fairfax for these lan ds legally claimed by Hite. Although this matter lingered in the courts f or over 50 years, settlement eventually came in Hite’s favor some 30 yea rs after his death.
Hite made numerous surveys of the land and settled the immigrant fa milies, including his own, in favorable locations. With his wife and youn ger sons, he and his oldest son John first settled on the Opecquon Creek s ix miles south of the present Winchester. Separate homes were built in t he 2,000 beautiful and productive acres of this Spring Dale settlement, b ut the land, forge, mill, and stone fort were held in common. He reserv ed for himself 900 acres of fertile and beautiful land where he built h is home, Long Meadows. Within it was “Travelers’ Hall” which welcomed adv enturers, explorers, and even friendly Indians. The mansion and land w as recorded in the name of his third son, Isaac, while he was still a mino r. It was there that Anna Maria died. Three years later he married agai n, to a widow, Maria Magdalena Neuchanger.
His grandchildren were numerous and their lives remarkable: at lea st twelve fought in the Revolution, several were pioneers in Kentucky a nd Tennessee, one married a President’s sister and lived in a home design ed by Thomas Jefferson, and one, tragically, was massacred by Indian
In his last years, Hite lived a simple life with no interest in po ssessions, moving frequently. He died in 1761, probably at the home on t he Opecquon where he had lived in during the early days in the valle y. He was buried at Bunker Hill Church (the first Episcopal Church we st of the Blue Ridge Mountains), which he attended. A hundred years late r, during the Civil War, the stone churchyard walls and the grave marke rs were taken by Union soldiers to be used as chimneys at General Sheridan ’s nearby camp. Jost Hite’s grave cannot now be located.

Their daughter, Elizabeth Hite, was the first child of the fami ly to be born in America. She was born in Kingston, New York in 1711. S he married Paul Froman before 1732 while the family was still living in P ennsylvania.. Nothing is known of his family except his father's name, Pet er, and the tradition that they were Quakers of New Jersey. The childr en of Elizabeth and Paul were born in the Shenandoah Valley, but the paren ts migrated on into Kentucky where Elizabeth died after her husband's dea th in 1783.

In about 1753, their daughter, Maria Christina Froman, married Willi am Overall whose land bordered that of the Froman family in the Shenando ah Valley. She died about 1780, perhaps shortly after five of her childr en had left Virginia to become pioneers in Tennessee.

[NI0933] Legend of the Snoddy Name
During the reign of Charles I of England they (the Catholics?) sent to Sco tland the barbarous Clavenhouse, who killed prisoners on sight, cut off wo men's ears, split noses, made children walk on hot ashes, burnt houses, ch urches, towns and caused general destruction.
The edict was given that all Proestants should be killed as soon as captur ed. A prominent Presbytarian named Fergus was captured. Being to promine nt to be killed at once he was sentenced for "day after tomorrow".

He planned to escape on "tomorrow night" - but a severe snow storm aro se so he escaped during the day of "tomorrow'. He fled to Ireland and the re in order to hide his identity and in memory of the day he escaped, he c alled himself in broad Scot - "Snow Day", which we in English have made "S noddy" meaning "a snow day".

OVERALL

George Overall, who died 11 July, 1561 was married to Susanna ______ ____. Their children were William, Nathaniel, Susannah, and Bishop John Ov erall, a noted English theologian. A Nathaniel Overall sailed from Ke nt in 1637 and settled in Virginia. He is considered to have been a neph ew of the Bishop and the first of our Overall family in America.

Our family records begin with William Overall (1640s-?), of Westmore land County, Virginia who bought 900 acres of land and held deeds as ear ly as 1660 and 1661. He was married to Jane Baldridge (1652 - 1718) befo re 1680 as recorded at St. Paul's Parish.Her parents were the immigrant s, James and Dorothy Baldridge, whose wills were dated 1654 and 1662.

Their son was William Overall (1680s - Jan 17, 1726), of King Geor ge County, Virginia who married Mary Jonesbefore 1702. Mary was the daught er of John and Ann Jones and probably the granddaughter of Nathaniel and J udith Jones , of Westmoreland County and the immigrants of this Jones fami ly. Mary died after 1743. Their children were John, Mary, Sarah, Elizabet h, Frances, William, and Nathaniel.

Little is known about the son John Overall (1701-1743 ) and his wif e, Mary Elliott (1703 - 1738. Mary married in 1722 and died 16 years lat er on July 24, 1738. She may have been the daughter of John Foxhall. Jo hn Overall survived his wife by five years. After his death, both their s ons, John and William, left the Virginia community where the family had li ved for three generations to become pioneers in Tennessee. Their daughte rs were Sarah, Mary, and Bethethalam.

William Overall must have been about 14 when his father left him a l ife estate in their lands in Prince William County, Virginia. Howeve r, in that same year he signed a release to his Uncle Nathaniel givi ng up all his rights to any property bequeathed to him by his family for £ 100. He was already in Frederick County, Virginia - a wilderness on the we stern frontier at that time. The original settlement of Jost Hite, the gra ndfather of his wife-to-be, was only ten years old.

The colonies were waging war against the French and Indians at th is time. There are records of his uncle, Nathaniel Overall, serving as a t rooper in the Virginia Militia and his death in 1762. In later engagemen ts of 1774, there are records of service by Paul Froman, William Overal l, James Robertson and George Rogers Clark. It is not surprising that the se comrades in the military would be influenced by the explorations of bo th Clark and Robertson in the western lands.

William married Maria Chistina Froman, daughter of Paul Froman and E lizabeth Hite, about 1753. Their children were William, John Froman, Natha niel, Nancy, Mary, Robert, and Christina. Maria may have died in 1780, sho rtly after five of their seven children had left for Tennessee.

Nathaniel Overall (1758- 1835) and his brother Robert were among t he men who made the overland journey to the Cumberland settlement after i ts establishment by James Robertson, their brother William and seven othe rs in 1779. The Overall sisters, Nancy and Mary, arrived on the Donelson F lotilla in April of 1780. When the Cumberland Compact was written to estab lish a government, and Nathaniel and his brothers were signers. William a nd Robert lost their lives in conflicts with the Indians within the next d ozen years, as did Joshua Thomas, the husband of Nathaniel's sister Nanc y. Nathaniel was the only one of the Overall brothers to die a natural dea th. He was an active member of the community: acting as an estate administ rator and constable; making numerous land transactions; and owning over 2, 000 acres of land over a 30-year period. Several of his land dealings we re with his friend and lawyer, Andrew Jackson.

The first regular preaching in this frontier settlement was at Natha niel's home in 1812. The Overall Campground was a meeting place for religi ous meetings until churches were built. The first church was built in 18 31 and the third one built was still standing in 1946.

Nathaniel married Annie Thomas, the daughter of William and Catheri ne (Leith) Thomas of Shenandoah County, Virginia. Their children were Mar y, Robert, Nace, Abraham, John, Sarah, Lorenzo, and James.

Robert Overall was born in Davidson County on June 11, 1785 and marr ied his first cousin, Mary Espey on December 24, 1815. His marriage at t he age of 30 seems a little late, but at least one duty had postponed matr imony: his military service in 1814 with Capt. Robert Carson's Compa ny of West Tennessee Militia Infantry. After his father's death, the la nd containing the log house built by them was deeded to him by his brothe rs and sisters. It was described as a parcel of land on the waters of t he south fork of Bradley's Creek containing 370 acres with the excepti on of the boundary laid off for the campground (for religious meetings) a nd a quarter of an acre for a family burying ground. The Overall House, wh ere he lived, still stands, but is unoccupied. His family included 12 chil dren:Nathaniel, William, James, Nace, Catherine, John, Narcissa, Asbury, L ouisa, Mary, Abram, and RachelAFT er the death of his wife, he was list ed in the census with his widowed daughter Narcissa.
He died in 1862, probably in the cholera epidemic which was r aging at that time. The Murfreesboro area was often the center of fierce C ivil War battles. Troops moved frequently though the countryside so, altho ugh his grave may once have been marked, there is no sign of any monume nt today. It is probably near the grave of his wife in the family cemeter y.

Asbury Overall (1820 - 1901) married Lucy Smith Crutchfield (1823-19 01). He was "admitted on trial" as a Methodist minister in 1843 and preac hed in Cumberland and Lebanon districts until 1849. But Lucy disapprov ed of his "calling" and he became a planter on land they purchased near Fr anklin. The Civil War destroyed their livelihood and the newly freed slav es stayed on the property without being able to provide for themselve s. To pay expenses, the land was gradually sold off. Only two of their chi ldren married, the others remaining to support their parents. The childr en were Robert, Claude, Mary Lassie, Watson, Nancy Allen ("Allie") and Mat tie Love.

Mattie Love Overall (1864-1925), the youngest and liveliest of the d aughters, married James Thomas Blackwood,a Methodist minister. An active s upport to her husband in his ministry, she also worked for women's righ ts and cared for their four daughters: Lillian, Lucy, Mattie Love and Alla isse. We are fortunate to have some of Mattie Love's writings, includi ng a lovely poem.

[NI1131] Notes for Minos Cannon , Sr.:

Many authorities agree as to the year of birth of Minos Cannon, among the m, his tombstone inscription.

One of his grand-daughters, Mrs. Rebecca Cannon Bostick, states positive ly that Minos Cannon was born in the State of Maryland, and additional sou rces of information bear out her statement, while other less authentic ref erences give his
place of birth as England, Ireland, or Wales. These latter are manifest ly in error, since as has been shown the direct Cannon Family had be en in residence in Maryland since 1683, or earlier.

Minos Cannon, born in 1757 in Maryland, probably Dorchester County, whe re his great-grandfather, James Cannon, is known to have lived in 1683 a nd where his grandfather, Henry Cannon, was born in 1704, was the son of e ither Charles,
Willis, Waterman or Clement Cannon, all sons of Henry Cannon and Frances N ewton Cannon.

The high probability is that Clement Cannon, born about 1730 in Dorchest er County, was the father of Minos. None of the other names, Charles, Will is, or Waterman are found among the descendants of Minos, whereas Minos na med his second
son, Clement, presumably for his father, since the eldest son had been nam ed, Newton, for the family of his grandmother.

Minos Cannon was only nineteen years of age when the Continental Congre ss met at Philadelphia, prior to the July 4th, 1776, when Independence fr om Britian was declared.

On June 3rd, the Congress resolved that the "Middle Colonies" must be defe nded and took steps toward that end by calling up ten thousand men from t he militias of Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware.

Before September of 1776, Minos Cannon was enlisted in the "Flying Cam p" of the Delaware Battalion and did not "Disert" the ranks of the Colonis ts under Captain John Woodgate, as did others in the record following:

"Monday, June 3, 1776

"Resolved, That a flying camp be immediately established in the middle col onies; and that it consist of 10,000 men; to compleat which number,

"Resolved, That the colony of Pennsylvania be requested to furnish of the ir militia the number of 6000; Maryland, of their militia the number 340 0; Delaware government, of their militia 600, (Total 10,000)

"Resolved, That the militias be engaged to the first day of December nex t, unless sooner discharged by Congress.

************************

There is a possibility that Minos Cannon was in the Colony of North Caroli na during the first part of the Revolutionary period, 1776-1780. His marri age is asserted to have taken place in Guilford County, in the year 178 0, his wife being
Letitia Thompson, second daughter of Robert Thompson of former Rowan Count y, North Carolina, one of the "Regulators" of that section. The Descendan ts of Robert Thompson are presented in a separate report providing a fu ll account of his
martyrdom in the cause of Colonial Independence from Englash oppression a nd tyranny.

Proof of Minos Cannon's contribution to the American Revolution is fou nd on the official certificate, given in the Scrapbook Section here, whi ch asserts that the Sheriff of Guilford County, North Carolina, paid in En glish money the sum of
two pounds and five shillings to Minos Cannon for his service to the Colon ies. The nature of that service is not shown. It can be assumed, howeve r, that the service was military, rather than civil or commissary, and th at Minos Cannon was, as
stated on his tombstone, a combat soldier among the troops of the North Ca rolina Continental Line.

The date of payment, 1785, two years after the conclusion of the War, is e xplained by the fact that a period of several years was often requir ed in which to settle the State Army accounts, through the medium of the i ndividual County
officials. Thus Minos' s service may have taken place prior, or subsequen t, to his marriage in 1780, the record from the Hillsborough Treasury givi ng no indication as to the period in which the payee was in service, nor t he duration of such
service.

************************
There is no further mention of Minos Cannon in the scant records of the De laware Archives. Thus it can be assumed that the youthful soldier served o ut his term of enlistment with the "Flying Camp," thereafter removing to N orth Carolina
and Guilford County.

During the Revolutionary period, there was a Clement Cannon serving the Co lonists from Talbot County, Maryland; and many references to Newton Canno n, Newton Willis, Willis Newton, Willis Cannon, etc., etc., combinatio ns of allied family
names of Maryland and Delaware. A Willis Cannon who settled in Davidson Co unty, Tennessee, and later moved to Bedford County, was very probably a ne ar relative of Minos Cannon.

Minos Cannon, Sr. was of English Ancestry. He came from Maryland and settl ed in Guilford County, North Carolina, then moved to Williamson County, Te nnessee. An obituary of his son, Governor Newton Cannon, who died in 184 2, states that his
father Minos Cannon, fought in the Revolutionary War, and was a soldi er in the Continental Army. The obituary was published in the Nashville Ba nner. Minos Cannon is buried in College Grove, Williamson County, Tennesse e, near Franklin. The
following is the inscription on his grave stone: "Sacred to the Memo ry of MINOS CANNON, SENIOR, of Maryland. Was a soldier in the Revolutiona ry War for Independence and died near this place on the 10th day of May 18 29, in the 73rd year of his
age." The Daughters of the American Revolution have placed a tablet on t he Courthouse Wall at Franklin, Tennessee, with the name of MINOS CANNO

The Review Appeal, November 17, 1838, states that Minos Cannon fought in t he Revolutionary War. Governor Newton Cannon was five weeks old at the ti me of the Battle of Guilford. After the Battle of Yorktown, Mr. and Mrs. M inos Cannon and
their two young sons, Newton and Clement, came West to the wilderness of T ennessee, on pack horses, with the youngest son Newton, riding in fro nt in his mother's lap, and Clement riding behind his mother.

This sketch of Minos Cannon was taken from the manuscript written by his g randdaughter, Mrs. Rebecca L. Cannon Bostwick:

"Minos Cannon was born 1757 in Maryland. He moved to Guilford County, Nor th Carolina, and settled near Guilford Courthouse. He was a soldier in t he Continental Army in the War of the Revolution - a fact which is inscrib ed on his monument in Williamson County, Tennessee, near Triune. He marri ed in North Carolina, Lettice, now called Letitia, Thompson. At the clo se of the war, about 1771, he emigrated to Tennessee in the same emigra nt train as my grandfather, Dan or Dan'l Hill. They brought their familie s. They came under guard of 50 men to protect them from the Indians, on pa ck horses, and remained some time in the old fort on the bluff at Nashvill e; which was then only a fort. My Grandmother, Mrs. Hill, and Mrs. Minos C annon and old Mrs. Buchanan (who was scalped, as was her husband, by the I ndians) molded bullets while the men in the fort fired through holes at t he Indians. On one occasion they saw a large clumsy looking hog approachi ng the blockhouse, or fort, about twilight. They fired at it, and lo, a gr eat big Indian rolled over dead. He had skinned the hog and tried to rea ch the fort unseen, presumably to climb over the palisade and open the gat es or doors to the Indians. Mr. Buchanan and his wife went to a spring, un der the bluff of Cumberland River, with buckets to get water - ambushed In dians caught them and not having time to kill and scalp, just scalped th em and ran, pursued by the settlers. Grandma Hill said the old people wo re black silk caps as long as they lived - as there were no wigs on the fr ontier.

Minos Cannon's wife, Letitia Thompson was an aunt of Jacob Thompson, who w as a member of Jefferson Davis's Cabinet of the Confederate States. I thi nk he was Secretary of the Treasury. She was also an aunt of John Thomps on of Davidson County, who was the father of Colonel John and Joseph Thomp son, who live near Nashville."

The following is a portion of a letter dated August 9, 1944, from Walt er W. Faw, Franklin, Tennessee to Judge S. C. Williams in Johnson City, Te nnessee, regarding the origin of the name of Cannonsburg (Now Murfreesbor o, Tennessee):

My dear Judge Williams:

...In response to your other inquiry as to whether "Cannonsburg" (now Murf reesboro) was named for Governor Newton Cannon or his father, I am enclosi ng some excerpts from a sketch of "The Cannon Family" which was prepar ed in 1908 by Mrs. Theresa Ewin Perkins, the grandmother of Colonel Tom a nd General John Henderson.

My inference from the facts and dates disclosed by this sketch is that "Ca nnonsburg" was named for Minos Cannon, who was a North Carolina (Marylan d) Revolutionary War Soldier and an early settler near the site of the pre sent Triune, Williamson County, Tennessee. I assume that the name of the t own in question was changed to Murfreesboro at least as early as the creat ion of Rutherford County in 1803. At that time Newton Cannon was abo ut 22 years of age and with no record that would suggest a reason to na me a town for him. I do not have the Acts of 1803 at my home, but it is st ated in the Tennessee Blue Book that Rutherford County was created in 18 03 from a part of Davidson County...

Yours Sincerely,

Walter W. Faw

******************************
In Davidson County, the only land registered in the name of Minos Cannon a ppears to have been located on January 2, 1787, and was surveyed for h im by one of the County Surveyors on December 4, 1788. The deed at the Dav idson County Court House was dated November 14, 1789, in consequence of Gr ant #1087. It was registered in Davidson County Deed Book B, Page 196, bea ring date of May 25, 1791.

The above deed mentions the soldier "Vinson Allheah", as the assignor of t he land to Minos Cannon, land which had been granted to him for his milita ry services with the State of North Carolina in the Continental Line, Revo lutionary War.

The North Carolina Grant, however, found in the Land Grant Office, War Mem orial Building, Nashville, Tennessee, gives the soldier's name in a margin al notation, as "Vernon Alhead." The Gtant calls for the same boundari es as the deed, at the Court House, and was dated November 26, 1789.

Grant #1087 was made to Vernon Alhead, the soldier of the North Carolina C ontinental Line, who probably did not care to "Take Up" the land, there by granted. Therefore he transferred, or assigned it, over to Minos Canno n, whose intention
it was to reside in the community where the land was situated.

It will be noted that the land adjoined that of Jason Thompson, and was se lected by Minos Cannon probably for that reason. He had the land surveye d, after he located the approximate boundaries, and later applied to the S tate of North Carolina for its purchase. On the records in the Land Offic e, it was found to belong to Varnon Alhead, who then assigned it to Min os and the ensuing Grant was signed officially by Samuel Johnston, Govern or of North Carolina. A copy of the Grant #1087 is contained in the Scrapb ook Section of this report.

The date of the first deed in Davidson County shows that Minos Cannon w as in residence in Davidson County in 1787, or (a more likely suppositio n) had a deputy locate and enter the land for him. Jason Thompson, had h ad land entered in his name, at the age of 17 years. Later in 1806, he so ld this parcel of land "Beginning at a Black Oak northwest corner to Min os Cannon's survey..." (Davidson County Deed Book G, Page 83). The Black O ak, boundary mark, figures in many of the Thompson deeds.

However, Minos Cannon was not in Davidson County during that part of the y ear 1787 in which the County Entry Taker canvassed the residents for taxab le land and polls. The tax was laid on all white males over 21 years of a ge (there were only 372, in number, at that time, and 105 "blacks", fr om 12 to 60 years) who owned land and were taxable. Minos Cannon, age 3 0, is not listed among the number present. His brother-in-law, Thomas Thom pson, brother of Letitia Thompson Cannon, was taxed one poll and is the on ly Thompson of that family. Jason was not listed or taxed, since his age w as twenty years, in 1787. (Clayton, 58)

As has been shown, the definite time at which Minos Cannon and family arri ved in Davidson County is not know; nor the time at which they return ed to Guilford County. The statement has been made that their return was o ccasioned by the almost daily attacks on the Cumberland settlers by the ho stile Indian Bands who wounded or massacred many pioneers at the various F orts, or Stations, on the River.

By the year 1790, it is conclusively proven that the family of Minos Cann on were located in Guilford, Salisbury District, from the 1790 Census Reco rd, the first to be taken by the new Federal Government.

It is of strong significance that MINOS CANNON is the only person of the C annon name listed in the Census of Guilford County in 1790. His househo ld probably consisted of the following:

Minos Cannon, head of family, age about 34 years,
Newton Cannon, age 9,
Clement Cannon, age 7,
Unknown Name Cannon, age 5
Letitia Thompson Cannon, head of family, age 37 years
Fannie Cannon, age 3
Letitia Cannon, age 1

The family again left Guilford County, this time after the taking of the C ensus, and probably before May 25, 1791, when Minos registered his de ed to the land on Mill Creek, in Davidson County, which in 1790 had beco me a part of the "Territory of the United States of America South of the O hio River."

On September 5, 1791, Minos sold 200 acres of the land, granted by North C arolina, as Grant #1087, located on Mill Creek, to John Johnston (Davids on County Deed Book C, Page 55). This deed of sale is the only direct de ed registered in the name of Minos Cannon, and was under date of July 5, 1 792.

In 1796, the "Territory" of Tennessee was granted Statehood in the Unio n, becoming the Sixteenth State to be admitted, preceded only by Vermont a nd Kentucky. By that year, Minos Cannon may have cast his eyes toward t he fertile lands south of Davidson County, for as early as 1780-1784, hunt ers and explorers had ventured into the adjoining hills. Permanent settlem ent by families did not commence until about 1798.

On October 26, 1799, this new county of WILLIAMSON was created from a pa rt of Davidson, by an act of the Tennessee General Assembly; and in five m onths' time, Minos Cannon had purchased from John Nelson of Montgomery Cou nty, "... on the waters of Big Harpeth, south of the town of Nelsonvill e, part of a tract of land granted to the aforesaid John Nelson for his se rvices as a major in the Continental Line of the State of North Carolina.. ." The deed was dated March 25, 1800, to "Minos Cannon of the County of DA VIDSON and State of Tennessee."

During the year 1800, the Minos Cannons probably had become settled on the ir new land, for on February 6, 1801, "Minos Cannon of the County of Willi amson" bought an adjoining tract from Major Nelson. It consisted of 117 1 /2 acres "... Beginning at the aforesaid Minos Cannons North East corn er of a tract of 245 acres..." (Williamson County Deed Book A, Page 4, Pa ge 160)

The following June, Minos sold the new tract of 117 1/2 acres to William F owler of Davidson; on May 15, 1804, he sold 40 acres to Harden Cunningha m, and the following September, bought 10 acres from George Alexander. (Ib id, P. 116, 491, 536, resp.) Several of these deed are witnessed by Newt on Cannon, son of Minos.

On June 9, 1810, Minos Cannon, Jr., married in Davidson County, his fir st cousin, Polly Thompson, daughter of Jason Thompson and Catherine McNair y. (Davidson County Marriage Book I, page 64.) Minos, Jr., removed to Bedf ord County, Tennessee before 1820, at which time he had four children.

On August 18, 1810, Clement Cannon, second son of Minos and Letitia Canno n, and a resident of Bedford County, Tennessee, married in Rutherford Coun ty, Tennessee, Susan Locke.

On July 20, 1811, the youngest son of Minos, Sr., Thompson Cannon, marri ed in Williamson County, Elizabeth Kinnard. (Williamson County Marriage Bo ok I, page 70). Members of the Kinnard Family witnessed various Cannon dee ds in Williamson County. Claiborne Kinnard was Security to the Execut or of Letitia Cannon's Will.

On December 23, 1812, the daughter of Minos and Letitia Thompson Cannon, L etitia Cannon (Junior), married in Williamson County, Tennessee, Abrah am B. Morton. (Williamson County Marriage Book I, Page 86).

On August 21, 1813, the eldest child of Minos and Letitia Cannon, Newton C annon, married in Williamson County, Tennessee, Leah P. Perkins. (Williams on County Marriage Book I, Page 133).

On April 4, 1814, Minos Cannon, Sr., sold to his son, Robert Cannon, for $ 450.00, a tract of 150 acres on the Big Harpeth, "adjoining the West Bound ary of the tract said Minos Cannon now lives on." (Williamson County De ed Book E, Page 309).

April 27, 1816 We the undersigned persons agreeable to the request of Min os Cannon, James Boyd and Fanny Gentry, Admrs. of Samuel Gentry, Decd, ha ve viewed and laid off one years provisions for the widow and family consi sting of the
following articles:

"Given under our hands this day above written

(Williamson County Will Book 2, Page 247)

(The marriage record of Samuel Gentry and Fanny Cannon has not been locat ed in Williamson or Davidson County)

On August 24, 1818, Fanny Gentry, widow of Samuel Gentry, married in Willi amson County, Thomas Cheatham. (Williamson County Marriage Book I, Page 15 7).

Two years after the taking of the 1820 Census, Robert Cannon, married in W illiamson County, on November 25, 1822, Elizabeth Scales. (Williamson Coun ty Marriage Book I, Page 218) and later removed to Bedford County, Tenness ee, joining his brothers, Clement and Minos, Jr. Members of the Scales Fam ily witnessed several Cannon land deeds in Williamson County.

Re: Mary Overall and James Espey. I also am a descendant of this line. Jam es' wife Mary Overall was a daughter of William Overall and Maria Christi na Froman not JOHN as you have listed. There remains much misinformation a bout this. William and John were brothers and their father was named Jo hn who died in 1742/3 in Prince William Co., VA. William left Prince Willi am returning from Frederick Co., VA to relinquish claim to his inheritan ce which had been left to him only as a "life estate". Legal record fil ed in 1749. He returned to Frederick Co. (Augusta Co., VA) and was list ed as a tithable in 1750 there. He bought land from Paul Froman, fath er of Maria Christina Froman although I do not have a legal document so st ating. Paul Froman's wife was Elizabeth Hite, daughter of Jost Hite and An na Maria Merckle. Several children of William and Maria Christina Overa ll came to Tennessee about 1779/80. Three of their sons, William, Nathanie l, and Robert came to Tennessee. Both William and Robert were killed by In dians. Nathaniel is my ancestor. Mary Overall, daughter of William and Mar ia Christina, married James Espy. That Mary (Espy) married Nathaniel and A nnie Thomas'
oldest son, Robert, who is also my ancestor. Thus Mary (Espy) married h er first cousin, Robert. Their home and her tombstone still stands in an O verall Cemetery near Murfreesboro. This Mary was called "Polly" and was bo rn in 1787. She was married on 27 December 1810 and died on 24 December 18 38 in Rutherford County. she is the one who is mentioned in James Espy's w ill as receiving 40 dollars. James Espy was not sheriff as stated. I track ed that down several years ago. From his will is appears that at the ti me of his death he was married to a "Caity" and had younger children th an those older ones who had married. In reading James Espy's will you wi ll see that he listed "his beloved friend Nathaniel Overall as one of h is executors." This will is in the Tennessee Archives on Book 2, Page 235- 238. Microfilm No. 239 or 259. I can't be certain. Would love to hear fr om you.

(From http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~aihbt/profiles/espey.html)
James Espey must have been born before 1762 because he was at least 18 wh en he came with his father at Fort Nashborough. James signed the Cumberla nd Compact in 1780 and, in 1784, was listed in the North Carolina Preempti on Act as one of the men who remained in the settlement and protected it f rom the numerous Indian attacks. For this service he was awarded 640 acre s. James was most likely the only survivor of his family, and inherited t he Espey grants. The property was located in the area near the present to wn of Smyrna on the Jefferson Pike. As late as 1946, descendants of the fa mily lived there in a home called Espeyland. It was on this land that Jam es and his wife, Mary Overall , lived with their family. His wife was o ne of the two Overall sisters who had come with the Donelson Flotilla to j oin their three brothers in the new frontier outpost. The known childr en of this marriage were William, Mary ("Polly"), Rachel, and Margaret.

James Espey was a great support to the Overall family. When Mary 's brother, William Overall, was ambushed and killed by Indians, James Esp ey paid a bond as administrator of the estate left to William's widow, Sus annah Thomas, and he later became one of the two guardians of her childre n. When Joshua Thomas, the husband of Mary's sister Nancy Overall, was kil led on a scouting expedition, James was named executor of the Joshua's est ate for the widow and Joshua's three small children.

After Mary's death, James married "Caity"___________and had sever al more children, including Caty, Sally, George, and Robert. In 1810, t he census reports his household included a wife, three male children, a nd three females. He wrote his will the following year, on December 27, 18 11. This will gives an interesting view of his character and the custo ms of that day. Two of the three daughters of the first marriage are le ft forty dollars, the other only one. William, the son of the first marria ge, is also left land (as is his son James, the only grandchild mentione d) and is an executor. William's wife is left an unusual bequest: a comple te "dress from head to feet". The younger children are the principle benef actors of his estate and are to be educated to read and write, the bo ys to cipher to the rule of three. The will was filed in the Rutherford Co unty Court on October 10, 1813.

His daughter, Mary "Polly" Espey married her first cousin, Robert O verall. The log home where she lived still stands near Murfreesboro, Tenne ssee. It has been abandoned since 1988. Her grave is in a one-quarter ac re family cemetery behind the house and the large headstone is plainly mar ked with the following inscription:

1787 Mary Overall was born and died
1838 Dec the 24th the mother of
12 children, 7 sons and 5 daughters
3 sons prechers Asbry Oveall and
Abram Overall

William, the third preacher, had died before his mother and was n ot named. Asbury, the fourth son to aspire to the pulpit, was a Methodi st minister for a short time before his marriage.

[NI1216] Email Message from Richard Holt to J.W. Harrison 16 Nov 2002

My grandmother, Martha Elizabeth Fly Holt was named for her grandmother, M artha Elizabeth Fly Hale, wife of William Abijah Fly. She and her siste r, Ethel Fly Mills, were both a great source of information about the Ha le and related families. My grandmother was always very proud of her "Co l. Tom E. Hale". The Colonel must have been a local title of respec t, as I have not documented him being in any military organizatio n. It is possible that he was associated with the local militia, but I ha ve no documentation to support this. The Hales were typical of the class ic wealthy land owning Southerners. They owned slaves and were wealthi er than the average Gibson Co., TN family. This is why they could affo rd to have daugerotypes made, as opposed to the usual sepia photograph s. On one of the daugerotypes, you can see "CS" on the belt buckle of t he man in the picture. This dates these pictures to the Civil War perio d. The Civil War period saw the erosion of the family's wealth and holdin gs, along with the lost of one of Thomas Hale's children. Religion w as a part of their lives, as Thomas E. Hale was one of the founding membe rs of the Mt. Zion Methodist Church near Medina, Gibson Co., TN. Mart ha E. Hale's husband, William Abijah Fly came from a family of preacher s. The incongruity of the Hales being religious and at the same time sla ve owners is one of those facts that I find both interesting and disturbi ng about my ancestors.

From "The Thompson Family" by Benny Joe McVay and Nancy Eulala McVay Thomp son

Thomas Thompson was born in Orange county North Carolina in 1791. Not mu ch is known of his early years nor is anything known about his parents.

He married Elizabeth Koons in North Carolina and moved west settling in Ma ury county Tennessee. To this union was born four children. The first T wo were girls: Elizabeth, born April 8, 1824 and Mary , Born March 4, 182 6. The second two were boys: Henry, born October 29, 1827 and John, born O ctgober 9, 1820. As far as we know, all these children were born in Mau ry county Tennessee.

In 1843 he and his family moved to Gibson county in West Tennessee. Hen ry was 16 years old and John was 14. Nothing is known about the girl s. It is very possible they may have been married and stayed in Maury coun ty East Tennessee.

In the section of Gibson county known as "Upper Mud Creek" he built a "D og Trot" style log cabin on land that he had received as a land grant. Th is section of the state was known as Cherokee territory. Tennessee had on ly been a state since 1796 and this area was very sparsely settled.

Thomas, who was a farmer and businessman, was very successful in his venrt ures. At the time of his death, he owned 319 acres of land. He died Octob er 29, 1853 at the age of sixty two. He is buried in the old Thompson ceme tery.

This writer feels very fortunate to have recently purchased fifty seven ac res of the original land owned by Thomas and includes the spot where his c abin was built. The original logs from his cabin were donated to the Gibs on county high school where a replica "Dog Trot" style cabin and a pione er homeplace has been built. These logs and the cabin may be seen at the s chool.

In this account, the only one of Thomas and Elizabeth Thompson's childr en that we will trace will be the youngest child John Thompson. f or it is through him, we trace our ancestry.

John was born October 9, 1829 in Maury County Tennessee. At the age of Fou rteen, he moved with his parents to Gibson county and was reared and educa ted here. He continued in the trade of his father and pursued farming a ll of his life.

In 1854 he married Nancy Minerva Wright, the daughter of James William a nd Lucinda Wright. She was born June 15, 1837 and died January 29, 189 7. To this union were born three children, James T., Gideon H., and Luth er Amacy. James and Gideon died at young ages. Thus our grandfather, Luth er Amacy, was in all essence an only child.

John lived on a portion of the land his father owned and also purchased ot her land joining him. At the time of his death., he owned 248 acr es of as fine of land as can be found in Gibson county, all well imporv ed and in a high state of cultivation.

Shortly afgter his marriage to Nancy, John built the house that Nancy McV ay Thompson lives in today. It is known to all of us as the Thompson Homep lace. His brother Henry, built one almost identical to it about a quart er mile south. It was blown away by a tornado in 1969. The logs were cut a nd the lumber was sawed from the woods on the place. The brick for the fir eplaces and chimneys were made on the premises. Most all the work was do ne by slave labor and in his will, he wills his slaves to his wife. The we ll was dug by hand, about five feet across and is lined with brick all t he way down. The water is hard but is still useable today.

John died May 6, 1882 at the age of 53 and is buried in the Flowers cemete ry. Their only living child Luther Amacy, who was already married, mov ed in the house with his mother in 1894 and lived there till the time of h is death.

Luther Amacy Thompson was born July 6, 1865. He, like his father was rear ed and educated in Gibson county. He was a farmer and very successful in t hose interest.

"Macy" as he was called married Martha Eulala (Mattie) Phillips on March 1 6, 1887. To this union was born nine children: Rachel Euranna (Corley), Jo hn Hollis, Euna Bell (Smith), Benjamin Phillips (Ben), Lessie Rein (Connel l), Carrie May (Gray), Harry Clint (Dick), an infant son, and Martha Evel yn (McVay)

Macy died December 28, 1913 thirty one days after his youngest child Mart ha Evelyn was born. He is buried in the Mt. Olive Cemetery. This brin gs us up to our parents and grandparents which will be chronicled in t he family tree outlined in the pages to follow.

From Gibson County Illustrated, pp. 31-32:

D. J. Hutchinson

D. J. Hutchinson was born five miles northwest of Trenton, Gibson Count y, Tenn., on January 8, 1853. His early life was spent on the farm with h is father, near what is now known as Grizzard. His opportunities for an ed ucation were limited; but, by the use of diligence and walking three or fo ur miles to school, he managed to secure a fair common-school education.

In 1874 he moved with his father to Southwest Missouri, where he spent o ne year; during his stay there he taught one term in a public school. He r eturned to Gibson County in 1875, where for a long time he worked on a fa rm and was timber contractor for the Mobile and Ohio Railroad between Tren ton and Dyer.

On September 13, 1877, he was married to Miss Nannie A. Grier, of Dyer Ten n, and soon after he bought a farm one mile northwest of Dyer and moved th ere where he still resides.

In 1883 he joined the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, at Mt. Olive, and w as soon made a ruling elder in that congregation; he has also served sever al years as superintendent of his Sunday school.

[Picture "D. J. Hutchinson (Judge of County Court)"]

In 1895 he was elected justice of the peace, which office he filled with s uch satisfaction that he was reelected in 1900.

He and his wife lived happily together for some twenty-three years, and th eir home was blessed with fourteen children; but on December 19, 1900, h is wife was called away by death, which was a great loss to him and whi ch cast over his home quite a gloom.

He had the honor of being elected chairman of the County Court of Gibson C ounty at its January (1901) term, and he seems to take great delight in tr ansacting the business of the office.

Judge Hutchinson enjoys sober habits, using no strong drinks; and he and h is entire family are free from the use of tobacco.

In politics he is a Democrat, and is a strong advocate of the principl es as taught by W. J. Bryan. His opposition to Cleveland caused him to vo te with the Populist party during one campaign.

During the life of the Agricultural Wheel and Farmers and Laborers' Unio n, Esquire Hutchinson was a very prominent member of these organization s, and was for several years their county president, which gave him an opp ortunity to become acquainted with many farmers in the county. In additi on to his farming, he has spent much of his time for the last ten yea rs in buying and shipping cattle and hogs.

Judge Hutchinson is regarded as one of Gibson County's foremost citizens.

[NI1280] Obit from Nashville Christian Advocate, May 20, 1874:

James G. Overall died May 2, 1874, aged nearly 60 years. He was the s on of Robert Overall, and married Miss Rachel W. Davis, of Davis co., KY ., in 1837. He leaves an estimable family and numerous friends to mourn h is absence. He was a member of the Methodist Church more than forty yea rs -- a true man, honest and energetic -- an earnest, devout, consistent C hristian. During the several weeks of his last illness he endured severe s uffering with resignation and fortitude, praying for a peaceful hour in wh ich to die. When the period came, full of faith and triumph, he thoug ht he could hear the music of the better sphere -- that angels were in t he room about his bed to conduct him home. Expiring without a struggle, sw eetly falling asleep in Jesus, his soul, parting out from fleshly ve il to be shown the way by angels, doubtless ascended to heaven, to be of t hat blessed host forever.
