Notes from Hunter Cole: Jesse and Ann’s daughter Ruthie was married to William Green, son of William Green of Granville/Warren, N. C. Through the Alstons Ruth and William were cousins. If you wish documentation of Ruth and William’s progeny, I can provide it.
In Jesse’s will a son named Nathaniel is mentioned. I infer that this is the child called “Alsey” and that his full name was Nathaniel Alston Hunter.
You will note that “Henry Lane” is mentioned as county clerk. Possibly he is of the Lane family intermarried with the Hunters. Jane Lane was the wife of Theophilus Hunter of Wake County. He is the brother of Isaac Hunter (Tavern Isaac)
I believe that Jesse’s family and Solomon Alston Hunter were in the same caravan traveling to Georgia from Warren County. Solomon, like Jesse, had sold his property to James Alston (his uncle) before setting out for Georgia. This property is the land left to Solomon in the will of Solomon’s grandfather Solomon Alston (d. ca. 1785-6). I have copies of the land transfers.
Thanks for placing the name of “James Alston Hunter” of Abbeville in your genealogical tables. He evidently was named for Solomon’s uncle James Alston, as was Solomon’s brother. The name “James Alston Hunter” was perpetuated further, in the grandson of James Alston Hunter of Abbeville and Choctaw County, Mississippi. Hunter

son of Isaac Hunter & Elizabeth Parker

Isaac Hunter est 1719 – 1811
& 1760 Martha Alston 1745 – aft 1785
of Warren Co NC

This is my working hypothesis — the way I see it as of this moment!!

Isaac Hunter ca 1719 – 1811
Bertie Co land,
Isaac Hunter and Solomon Alston owned plantations along Shocco Creek in the southeast of Warren County.
married 18 April 1760 Granville Co NC Martha Alston 25 May 1745 –

All of Isaac and Martha’s children, except Solomon, migrated to Tennessee.

e-mail from Hunter Cole: . . . .Daniel, a bachelor, died intestate in 1797, and his heirs were required to advertise in a Raleigh newspaper in order to seek out any other claimants to Daniel’s siblings. The resulting depositions from Chowan, Gates, Perquimens, and other counties locate many heirs. The children of each of Daniel’s siblings and their spouses are listed in these court records
Isaac of Warren and his brother Jesse moved from Chowan to Bute County (renamed Warren), where they married the Alston sisters. Isaac Hunter and Solomon Alston owned plantations along Shocco Creek in the southeast of Warren County. Brother Daniel Hunter lived nearby on Fishing Creek in Granville County.
The wills of Isaac of Chowan (m. Elizabeth Parker) and Isaac of Warrren (m. Martha Alston) show the progression of this branch of the Nansemond tree.
All of Isaac and Martha’s children, except Solomon, migrated to Tennessee. Solomon migrated to Liberty County, Ga., to Wilkes Co., Ga., and to Abbeville Co., S. C., where he died in 1799.

an e-mail from Flo – have not studied in depth. . .I appreciate your reply. Elizabeth Hunter (d/o Isaac and Elizabeth Parker Hunter), the widow Perry married second John Rainey of Caswell Co, NC. He was previously m. to Sarah Elizabeth Mitchell. This is not my work but I believe it to be correct. Your Sallys Place website mentions the marriage of Isaac Hunter’s daughter to Perry, believed to be Philip, and does not mention John Rainey. You do ?mention a John. Thanks. FloThe nuncuperative “Mare’s Will” of John Rainey, husband of Elizabeth Hunter (Perry) of Chowan Co NCCaswell County NC Bk A, p. 183Will conveyed to witnesses as John was setting out to search for his lost mare. Will witnessed by Archibald Murphy, Jane Murphy and George Elliot: proved in Caswell County, North Carolina. 1782. “Caswell County The written was duly sworn to before me this 29th day January 1782. John Moore.” His wishes were: “First he said William Rainey was to have land on Hico where he formerly lived.** The land on Cane Creek he said was his son James’s and he ordered that his son Thomas Rainey should have his land on the waters of Country Line Creek. His Negroes were to be equally divided between his daughters Elizabeth and Jenny. His wife to be possessed of his other estate.”**Believed to be when he was m. to 1st wife Sarah Elizabeth Mitchell by whom he had 3 sons, David, 1737
Wm and John. The Mitchells lived on the Hico. After marriage to E. Hunter (after 1752 when she was widowed from Perry), it is believed they had sons 1758
“Judge” James Rainey of Semora (Red House Academy) NC, and 1763Thomas who died 8/30/1812 in Jackson TN, and 2 daughters as named; Elizabeth m. Wm. Johnston March 1783 and Jenny (Jane) m. Nathaniel Duncan and Nov 6, 1782.
Jane Rainey Duncan was last found on Wilkes County GA 1820 census.
She and Nathaniel had at least 7 children.
John Rainey’s daughter Elizabeth m. Wm. Johnston in March 1783 at Caswell County. Flo

Hannah Hunter and Joseph Riddick were married ca 1748.
She was his last wife — he had other children from earlier marriage/s.
Hannah and Joseph had two children Joseph and Molly. [per depo.] [I think they also had Isaac.]

Sally: Have enjoyed your website and find that we have many ancestors in common. One in particular I am trying to find more about is Joanna Hurdle who married Nathan Riddick Aug. 15, 1800. Both Elizabeth Hurdle who married Reuben Riddick and Rachel Hurdle who married Isaiah Riddick were daughters of my great, great, great, great grandfather Joseph Hurdle (abt. 1725-late 1792) Gates Co. I do not have a listing for Joanna Hurdle but feel she is in there somewhere. I recently received my Gates Co. Historical Newsletter and read that Sarah Riddick had sewn a sampler that was auctioned off for $9,200 and that she was the daughter of Nathan Riddick and Joanna Hurdle. It mentioned that Nathan’s father was Gen. Joseph Riddick (1735-1818) and that he served in the general assembly for 33 yrs., but nothing about Joanna’s family. I contacted Ms. Snellings of the Gates Historical Society and she really didn’t have any other info., except that Joanna witnessed Elizabeth Hurdle’s will in 1794, which is the date Joseph’s wife died (she is the mother of Elizabeth and Rachel who married the Riddicks). By chance can you help me figure out who Joanna’s parents or siblings were? I appreciate you taking the time to read my e-mail . I feel we have many other ancestors in common as I have Jones’ on both sides of my heritage. Most of my relatives lived in the Surry, Va., Nansemond, Va. and Gates Co. areas. I grew up there but now live in Ga. Thank you for your help. If I can assist you in your search, will be glad to do so.

What I know about Elizabeth J. Jones:She was a daughter of Thomas and Temperance Jones, who lived in the
Green Hall District, north of Edenton. Thomas died in 1822, and
Temperance in 1824. After her father’s death, she was given to the
guardianship of her brother-in-law, Josiah Small. Her sister Matilda
Jones married Josiah in 1818; his father was Benjamin Small; the Smalls
all had property in the Green Hall district and served as “captains” of
the district, for militia purposes I assume, but also for purposes of
tax collection it seems. (A lot of my info comes from Chowan Co. tax
records in Raleigh.) “From Abstracts of Vital Records from Raleigh, North Carolina,
Newspapers 1820-1829 Lois Smathers Neal
#3123 d. in Chowan County on the 10th inst., Mrs. Temperance Jones,
widow of the late Thomas Jones, Esq. . . RaNCSw Fri. 28 May 1824 3:5.Your helpful records (Gates Co. census, 1850), indicating that
Elizabeth was 38 in 1850, tell me that she was born around 1812. So she
would have been 10 in 1822 when she went to live with Matilda and
Josiah.After that, the only thing I have to go on is the marriage bond saying
she married Jethro Riddick in 1841. (I have confidence that it’s the
right Elizabeth Jones because in the estate papers she is referred to
as Elizabeth J. Jones, and that’s what the marriage bond says.) I have
yet to thoroughly organize a stack of deeds I copied from the Chowan
Co. deeds office last spring, but I do remember that at some point she
sold (or simply conveyed) the land she inherited from her father to her
brother-in-law. (Her two brothers, James and August, who were also
raised in the same household, did the same, as I remember.) (She had
other siblings who went to another guardian.)“Plea Dec. term 1824: To the worshipful the justices of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions aforesaid: The petition of John M. Jones, Henderson Jones, Josiah Small in right of his wife Matilda Josiah Small as Guar.d of James Elizabeth and August Jones, and John Blount as guardian of Sarah & Temperance Jones, and John M. Jones ad. Of Wm. Jones dec‚Äôd respectfully showeth. That Thomas Jones of the County of Chowan died intestate on the 26th Nov. 1822 propertied of a certain parcel of Negroes and being your petitioners his heirs at Law your petitioners pray your worships that ?? persons be appointed to divide the said negores between your petitioners according to the act of Assembly in such cases made and provided.” [from estate file]Thomas Jones left to Temperance some 136 acres along the Machimicomack (sp.?) Creek. I think from my skimming through the estate papers that Thomas’ property was valued (perhaps ambitiously by the lawyer bringing the lawsuit against Mr. Small) at $20,000.

I found this nice family plot for Carolina and Albert, with their children and other relatives (including, according to my internet source, “Henrietta Riddick and Jake Riddick (no dates).” Henrietta was an 8-year-old child of Elizabeth and Jethro Riddick in your 1850 census, but I don’t see a Jake; perhaps she had another child after 1850? Why no dates for them? What’s their story?
