Hello. This is my Bennett file, which contains info on my Patrick Co. VA ancestors who migrated to WV. Has anyone pushed these families back further, or do you have proven revisions? NOTE NEW EMAIL: dkuhn2@charter.net Thanks, cousins!

                                   ADKINS

FANNIE ADKINS B. D. c.1814. M. ROBERT BENNETT, Mont. Co. VA, 5-8-1777. Robert’s second wife Catherine Adkins was probably related to Fannie, as is early Greenbrier settler Parker Adkins, but I’m not sure how.

                                   PLUMLEY
                                    (English)

JOHN PLUMLEY, b. c. 1615-20, Great Guidham, Essex, England., m. ELIZABETH BROWN. Came to VA (New Kent) in 1635.

VA., Louvina A., 66, b. VA., parents b. VA. The age and location are exactly right, and our Mary was Mary E. (almost surely “Elizabeth”) However, I have no conclusive evidence this is the family of the Mary “Gothard” who married Andrew Bennett.

                            


                            KELLY (KELLEY)
                                    (Irish)

WILLIAM CHARLES KELLY, B. c. 1815 D. ? M. EDITH (Eady) HARWARD (Harrad, other spellings), dtr. of Bry Harward and Betsy Barbee Harward, 2-17-1840, Wake Co. NC., later in Chatham Co. NC as “Charles”, not found after Civil War. Many Kellys, Kelleys and O’Kellys in Wake and Chatham, but unknown how he fits in. Perhaps desc. (Grandson?) from Henry Kelly who m. Mary Barbee in Chatham Co, 12-21-1717, as the families later intermarried. Henry d. 1794, Rev. war vet. He left a will, but, unfortunately, simply leaves everything to his wife and children without naming them. Other possible relatives in the area were Sims Kelly, Abner Kelly, and Joseph Kelly. A Giles Kelly was born in Ireland, moved to Brunswick Co. VA; he had sons William and James, and the William could possibly be the older William C. found in Chatham. This older William C. Kelley in the 1830 Chatham Co. census, who could possibly be the father of our William C.? This William C. Kelley, b. Ireland 1775, d. 1843 in Union Parish, LA, was married to Temperance Parish in Johnston Co, NC in 1811 and had known sons John and Joel. He lived in Chatham and then moved on to Alabama and then Louisiana. 1860 Chatham census, Williams Mills Post Office, # 151: Charles Kelley, 45, Farmer. Eady, Wife, 40. Children: Addie, 18, James, 17, Jane, 12, John, 9, Eddy, 8. Living with him in the previous census was Bry Harward, and, next door, living alone, Elizabeth Harward (possibly “Betsy?”) In 1860, Census #’s 142 through 150 are ALL Harwards or Barbee’s, except # 145 (James Parish, probably a relative of the older William C. Kelley’s wife ). Also nearby is Joseph Kelley, 80, living with Cindy Kelley, 48.

EDWARD ASHWORTH KELLY (Pap): b. 1851, Chatham Co. NC, D. 1947, Fayette CO. WV. M. ARTA ADLINE VEST, Raleigh CO. WV. Bur. Vest Cemetery, Mt. View Rd, Summers, WV (marker). “Pap” apparently remembered his birthdate a bit differently in later years. It’s consistent in census records up through the 1920's or so, when it takes a leap. The result was his obituary reporting his death at age 109, but I think he was actually “only” 97 or so. He talked of being a Confederate soldier at Appomattox, but I’ve found no record of his service and believe he would have only been about 14 when the war ended, but, as we know, that doesn’t necessarily preclude his serving, at least near the end. Some say Pap married a second time after Arta Vest died, but I’ve not found a record. He was a widower for many years, living with a daughter in Thurmond, WV at the end of his life. He walked railroad tracks over several counties, re-caning chair bottoms with hickory splits. The only photo I have of him shows a small, wrinkled man with a remarkably thick head of dark hair, something that did not follow many of his male descendants in the Bennett line into their middle years...or late 20's for that matter. DTR: ROSETTA (ZETTIE), Allie Settle, sons Joseph and Lon, several others.

ROSETTA KELLY (Zettie) M. Andrew Malone Bennett, 5-20-1897, Raleigh Co. WV. Buried at Gatewood, Fayette Co., WV.

                                    
                                   HARWARD
                                    (English)

WILLIAM HARWARD, b. c. 1704, m. Mary Myrick. Children include James (1760-1840) Rev. War vet, m. Rosannah Barbee, then m Rachel Blevin), Elizabeth (m. Micajah Barbee), Mary (m. Barbee Sears), William Jr., Martin and JOHN

JOHN HARWARD, D. c. 1832. Also found as Harwood, Harrod, others. M. SARAH “SALLY” SEARS, dtr. of HENRY SEARS and ROSANNAH BARBEE. Children inc. Brittain, Henry, John, Martha (m. a Barbee), Milly (m. a Yates), Rhoda (m. a Wheeler), Rosannah, Nancy, (m. a Castleberry) and BRY.

Bry and Brittain named executors.

BRY HARWARD, B. c. 1779, NC. M. Betsy BARBEE, 12-8-1801, Wake Co. NC. Betsy was the dtr. of GOIN BARBEE and his wife/1st cousin ANNY BARBEE. Bry and Betsy were also “first cousins once removed,” as Betsy’s grandfather John Barbee was also Bry’s great-grandfather. Bry was living with dtr. EDY (EDITH) KELLY and son-in-law (William) CHARLES KELLY in Chatham CO. NC, 1860 census, age 84. In List of the Taxable Property for Chatham Co., NC, 1815 as having 115 acres on “Panter Creek” valued at $287.50. Jack, William and Brittain also listed as “taxables.” The name is spelled “Harrod” in this document.

EDITH (EADY) HARWARD m. WILLIAM CHARLES KELLY in Wake Co. NC, 2-17-1840. Son: EDWARD ASHWORTH (Pap) KELLY. Other children include Addie, James, Jane, and John.

                                   MYRICK
                                    (English)       

MARY MYRICK M. WILLIAM HARWARD. Son: JOHN HARWARD. Mary was probably a granddaughter of early Surry Co. VA settler Owen Myrick, b. c. 1652, England, first wife Joan_______, second wife Mary______, but I’m not sure which of Owen’s sons (or possibly even grandsons) Mary was the daughter of.

                                   SEARS

JOSEPH SEARS m. Mary____? and d. 6-12-1740, Middlesex Co., VA. Children inc. Catherine, Elizabeth, Joseph, Violita, and HENRY.

                                   BARBEE
                                    (English)

Some say this family originated in France, but has been in England for many centuries. They are found in the town of Barby (note alternate spelling) in Northamptonshire. As shown below, there is a first-cousin intermarriage in this family, so the line is a bit complicated. Also, the Barbee, Sears and Harward families are so intermarried (even by Old South standards!) it is difficult to keep them all straight, so hang on:


WILLIAM BARBEE b. England, early settler, New Kent Co., VA., where a headright by George Morris and John Pigge naming him was on file, 12-11-1660. Sons: WILLIAM BARBEE and Andrew, at least

Other children include Joseph, Sarah, Sukey, Thomas, Martha, Christopher Jr., Rosannah and Benelge. Numerous other slaves are designated. Some of Christopher’s land near what was then called New Hope Chapel Hill (it was a hill with an Anglican church called New Hope Chapel on it) in Wake County was later donated by his heirs for the construction of part of the University of North Carolina. The family cemetery is on the campus.
