The First Public Voice was a Scottish Fellow #vagenealogy #virginiapioneersnet

The First Public Voice was a Scottish Fellow

Map of UlsterGeorge Bancroft, known for his New England predictions, said: "We shall find the first voice publicly raised in America to dissolve all connection with Great Britain, came not from the Puritans of New England, or the Dutch of New York, or the planters of Virginia, but from Scotch-Irish Presbyterians." It was Patrick Henry, a Scot, who kindled the popular flame for independence. The foremost was descended from those Scots driven out of Ulster by bishops and Lord Donegal & Company. The distinguished place which men of Scottish or of Ulster origin had asserted for themselves in the councils of the Colonies was not lost when the Colonies became independent States. Among the first of the thirteen original States two-thirds were of either Scottish or Ulster-Scottish origin. Of the men who have filled the great office of President of the United States, eleven out of the whole twenty-five come under the same category. About half the Secretaries of the Treasury of the Government of the United States have been of Scottish descent, and nearly a third of the Secretaries of State.  . . . more . . .

The Ulster-Scottish Influence in America #genealogy #virginiapioneersnet

The Ulster-Scottish Influence in America

Map of UlsterThe first American Census taken in 1790 listed 2,345,844 people of English origin; 188,589 of Scottish origin, and 44,273 of Irish origin. However, the portion of the population which was described as Irish were largely Ulster-Scottish. The true Irish never having emigrated in any considerable numbers until they felt the pressure of the potato famine some fifty years later. Interestingly, at the outbreak of the Revolutionary War one-third of the entire population of Pennsylvania was of Ulster-Scottish origin. A New England historian, quoted by Whitelaw Reid, counted that between 1730 and 1770 at least half a million souls were transferred from Ulster to the Colonies, which was more than half of the Presbyterian population of Ulster. The Scottish immigrants trended towards Virginia, the Carolinas, Georgia and Kentucky. One authority fixes the inhabitants of Scottish ancestry in the nine Colonies South of New England at about 385,000, while less than half of the entire population of the Colonies was of English. That means that a large number of Scots and the Ulstermen contributed to the Revolutionary struggle in America as well as the public life of the early days of the United States. Out of the twenty-two brigadier generals of George Washington, nine were of Scottish descent. In fact, the rescuer of Kentucky and the whole rich territory northwest of the Ohio from the Indians, was General George Rogers Clark, a . . . more. . .

Powhatan was the Sachem of Eight Tribes #virginiapioneersnet #genealogy

Powhatan was the Sachem of Eight Tribes

PowhatanSachem means "Chief" The Powhatan confederacy consisted of a number of settlements mostly situated on the banks of the James, Elizabeth, Nansemond, York and Chickahominy rivers, all of which abounded with fish and fowl. Also, the forest was filled with deer and wild turkey, while the toothsome oyster was found in great abundance on the shores of the Chesapeake and its numerous inlets. In his younger days Powhatan had been a great warrior and subdued twenty-two others, so that at this time he was the mighty "werowance", or sagamore, of thirty of the forty tribes of Virginia. The hereditary chiefs of the Powhatan confederacy were permitted to rule their own people the same as they had before they were conquered and their local laws and customs were not interferred with on condition of their paying annual tribute to Powhatan of "skins, beads, copper, pearl, deere, turkeys, wild beasts and corn. What he commandeth they dare not disobey in the least thing." Moreover, as if to make the resemblance more remarkable, his subjects regarded him as half man and half god. Powhatan was described as a "tall, well-proportioned man with a sower look, his head somewhat gray, his beard so thin that it seemed none at all, his age nearly sixty, of a very able and hardy body to endure any labor." And considering the extent of his conquests and unlimited power over his subjects as well as the pomp which he maintained, Powhatan possessed a savage dignity. It is said that he had twenty sons and eleven daughters living at the time of the Jamestown settlement. Nothing is known of his sons except Nantaquans, who is described as "the most manliest, comliest and boldest spirit, ever seen in a savage." Pocahontas, the favorite daughter of Powhatan,is thought to have been born in 1594, which would make her about thirteen years of age at the time Captain Smith was dragged before her august father. The family of Powhatan was numerous and influential. Besides his sons and daughters there were also three brothers younger than himself; and upon them successively (and not his . . . more . . .

Gumption and Bravery #virginiapioneersnet #vagenealogy

Gumption and Bravery

Genealogy Tips by Jeannette Holland Austin Genealogy Books by Jeannette Holland Austin

While it is true that many poor Germans, Scotch, Irish and Swiss settlers crossed the seas to settle a wilderness plain, it took a lot of gumption, and then bravery to fight the battle of freedom. All Indian tribes were not friendly, and made it a practice to steal, massacre and take young girls as slaves. As one settler in the Allegheny Mountains said (in his last will and testament) "My two daughters were stolen by the Indians. If they should ever return, I want them provided for."

Hoarders Collect Things. Genealogists Collect Information

The almond trees are in bloom!  That means that Spring is but a breath away. As the seasons roll around, we get a fresh new look at things.  Even the long, tedious years of researching the family history offers brighter expectations.  Oh, how I welcomed the libraries this winter.  They were a warm and cheerful domain to settle in to do research.  But warming weather means more daylight, and time to take trips to old churches and cemeteries.  Everything is not on the Internet, you know, so we need to trudge around and search more avenues of genealogy.  I have spent more than fifty years collecting data, and there is yet more information available!  People hoard things, and special items for us genealogists can be found in antique shops around the country.

The Moment of Truth #genealogy #georgiapioneerscom

The Moment of Truth

Genealogy Tips by Jeannette Holland Austin 

Books by Jeannette Holland AustinThe moment of truth is when we realize that we have an answer of we know how to find it. Sometimes it comes after long, intensive research; other times it is but a flash, an idea. Finding answers, however, is not an easy chore. We must find clues which establish patterns which fit into the era during which we are searching. I was recently asked to locate a first wife who gave birth to one child then died a couple of years later. For this reason she did not show up on the 1850 census as the mother of this child, but the second-wife did. The marriage to the second wife was easily found, but not the first one, simply because the records began at a later date. situations like this occur throughout the research of just about everyone. Hard proof would be the husband receiving properties for his wife via the will of her father. To find such a detail, we need to examine the annual returns of the estate (every year until the estate was closed) and the receipts given by heirs or recipients. Here, your idea proof would be a receipt from the husband in behalf of his named wife. In addition, the sale of the estate listed every item and who purchased it. Then, of course, there is the possibility of an obituary somewhere, naming the heirs. This is not unusual. All local newspapers as well as the largest one in the State should be examined page-by-page because obituaries and death notices were scattered through the newspapers, even in the want-ad section! An obscure notice could be your moment of truth, or the actual cemetery where the first wife and her parents were buried. Sometimes we hit pay dirt, when all the children are listed on the tombstone, or obelisk in the cemetery. A number of old newspapers are published on Georgia Pioneers and available to members. In addition, lots of old Georgia newspapers have been published and are available in the Georgia Room of the Cobb County Library. It is worth a look.

You Need an Eye to Detail

Tips by Jeannette Holland Austin

Genealogy Books by Jeannette Holland AustinA number of clues exist in public records which help the genealogist to locate lost relatives. One ancestor which I had researched for many years was discovered by reading Revolutionary War Pensions for that surname. It was Joseph Lane, resident of Missouri whose application stated that he had two sons who'd left home years ago, one who went west and the other to either Kentucky or Georgia. Although no given names were provided, my detailed notes provided two brothers in Georgia fitting that description. From there, I studied their estate records, viz, inventories, sales, annual returns and vouchers to see who was listed and where they resided. The names given in these types of records bear close relationships to the deceased. I found one lost ancestor by searching Jasper County annual returns (for everyone with that surname) and discovered that a trip to Kentucky was an item paid for and listed in the annual returns. This linked "the origin" of the family. Other great digs are deed records where heirs sell their inheritance and name other heirs in the deed. Every single record of that surname must be researched for little clues. . . . more . . .

Give No Quarter Means "to Kill"

Battle of King's MountainStories that the Soldiers want you to remember are found in the Pension Records. During the Revolutionary War, the patriots fought in battles which they wished to remember, and pass on. Some of the stories helped to inspire people to join the cause. Such as the one about Colonel Banastre Tarleton who "gave no quarter" to the South Carolina militia who displayed a white flag of surrender. Instead, he ordered his men to run them in with their swords. The story of Tarleton's vicious nature and cruelty spread throughout the ranks and gained more militiamen as they moved towards North Carolina and engaged in a battle at King's Mountain. Thus, the cry of victory was loudly proclaimed. Today, the only means of learning some of these stories is to read actual pensions of Revolutionary War soldiers.
