In Reply to: Elizabeth Easley m Phillip Martin,Henrico ,VA by april trunick of 1843

There is not the slightest evidence that her mother's name was "Ann Warham Parker." All the records give it simply was Ann Parker.

Elizabeth Easley, daughter of Robert and Ann (Parker) Easley, was probably born c. 1690-95. She seems to have died by 1741, as there was no mention of dower rights when her husband sold his Goochland Co., Va. land on Deep Creek that year. Nothing definite is known about her marriages or children, but the following are suggestions.

According to Pauline Pearce Warner's transcript of the Henrico Co., Va. Orphans' Court Book, p. 105, before 5 October 1726, Alexander Kilpatrick m. Elizabeth Martin, widow of Philip Martin, in Henrico Co., Va.

Philip Martin was witness to the will of Robert Easley, the immigrant, in 1711, at which time Elizabeth Easley was still unmarried.

Henrico Co., Va. Deeds, Wills Etc., 1714-1718, p. 165, April Court 1717. Will of Phillip Martin. Wits.: Richd. Williams, Andrew Martin. Estate to be equally divided between wife Elizabeth and dau. Elizabeth. Ditto, p. 176, June Court 1717. Appraisement of Philip Martin's estate by Wm. Cocke, Thomas Bayler, John Gills, John Allday. Total amount 23 lbs., 16 s.

The second marriage might be an explanation of the Easly Kilpatrick who wintessed the 1746 will of John Easley in Goochland Co., Va. in 1729 there is a deed from Warham Easley, son of Robert Easley the immigrant, to Alex. Kilpatrick in Goochland Co., Va.

The Kilpatricks attempted to maintain the names "Easley" and "Warham" among their descendants. "Easley" was transmuted into Ezlo, Easler, Ezles, Easter, Eslay, Isley, Isly, Isler, and Ily. "Warham" became Warre, and then Worry. The following data is less certain:

Probably also connected to this Kilpatrick line were:

Wary/Worry Kilpatrick of Craven Co., N.C., b. c. 1745--d. 1821, who had a wife Lucy and sons James Kilpatrick, Wiley Kilpatrick, and Worry Kilpatrick.
Andrew Kilpatrick, b. c. 1745--d. 1813, of Iredell Co., N.C. m. (1) Jane Nichols; (2) Elizabeth McCorkle Barr. He was said by descendants to be of a family which lived for a while at Manchester, Chesterfield Co., Va., with the Branch family. He had a brother Joseph Kilpatrick who appears with him on the 1790 ensus in Salisbury District, Iredell Co., N.C. Andrew Kilpatrick also had a nephew Ebenezer Kilpatrick, b. 1786, N.C. Possibly he had another brother, Elihu Kilpatrick, who lived in Va.
Alexander Kilpatrick, b. c. 1740--d. 1810, of Mecklenburg Co., N.C. He probably m. Mary, dau. of John Clark of Mecklenburg Co., N.C., formerly of Va. He had a brother James Kilpatrick, who served in Col. Thos. Brandon's Regt. in the Revolution and resided in Union Co., S.C.; Pendleton District, S.C.
Mrs. Neuhauser's earliest proved Kilpatrick ancestor was Alexander Kilpatrick (ca 1740-1805) of Mecklenburg Co., N.C. and Spartanburg Co. and Old Pendleton District, S.C. She had several bits of data indicating that he was probably the son of Alexander Kilpatrick of Craven Co., N.C., or possibly of Easley Kilpatrick if they were of the same branch. She had eliminated most of the other North Carolina Kilpatricks, as most of their families are documented, or are too late.

This material does not give any definite line of descent, but it provides a number of clues which could be very profitably investigated.

A less likely possibility for the marriage of Elizabeth Easley is that in 1734 there is an estate administration for John Jones in Amelia Co., Va., with Robert Easley, son of Robert Easley the immigrant, bondsman for the widow Elizabeth Jones. None of this is definite, but the first suggestion seems more probable.
