Re: McCarty/Blair in GA 1700-1850

In Reply to: McCarty/Blair in GA 1700-1850 by Phil Strause of 4551

I am also interested in this theory about the PA connection to Daniel McCarty.

I recently made the discovery that our Jacob McCarty who died in 1812 in Stewart Co., TN was the son of Daniel & Agnes, not the Jacob McCarty who married Mary Morrow.

Jacob's wife Cathrine was the daughter of David and Hannah Standley/Stanley/Standlee of Anson/Tryon/Mecklenburg Co., NC. If you read the story of Stanley Creek, in the town of Stanley, it tells about George, John & David Stanley. We've been able to determine that John is David's father, but haven't been able to place George Yet.

I recently found the following document:

Source: Mecklenburg Co., NC, pp. 167-170; May 1 and May 2, 1765
"DANIEL McCARTY and wife Agnes of Mecklenburg Millwright to George Allen of same, planter Wit: Francis and Agnes Beaty, DAVID STANDLEY"

And this one you might find interesting, especially when you see who the witnesses are:

Source: Anson Co., NC Deed Abstracts 1749-1766, Abstracts of Wills & Estates 1749-1795

Page 7: 1 May 1758, Benjamin Hardin & wf Catherine of Anson, to DAVID STANLEY, for 28 s10 proc. Money….part of land on N side Catawba granted to William Watson, 29 Feb 1754, 400 A….200 sold to Hardin 10 July 1754….Benjamin Hardin (Seal), Catherine Hardin ( C ) (Seal), Wit: Peter
Kuykendall, Andrew Hampton, Benjm. Brown.

There are at least 5 deeds between the Hardin's and the Stanleys, and the Kuykendalls are almost on all of them. The Kuymendalls family can also be found in Stewart Co., TN, as well as another family that continues to be found in Logan Co., KY and into AR with the Standlees, descendants of David. Benjamin Hardin died in 1802 in Logan Co., KY. It is said that his grandfather, Benjamin Hardin (I) was married to Sarah Stanley, perhaps a relative to our John and David.

I have even more deeds with David Standley to include ones with John Bennett, who I believe was married to Daniel's daughter Ann.

I also found the land records in GA for Daniel McCarty. In April 1770, Daniel McCarty, Jacob McCarty, David Stanley, and his father, John Stanley obtained land on Uchee Creek, St. Paul's Parish, Columbia Co., GA. The records that Janice McCarty provided online, confirmed the land records for Daniel & Jacob.

GA land laws required a man had to be 21 years of age or older to obtain land. A father or relative could not obtain land for a minor son. Jacob was also listed as having a wife and a child. In order to be this Jacob, he would have to have been born no later then 1749, making him one of Daniel's older sons. The only exception to the 21 age rule was inheritance.

You'll notice the instances of Daniel & Agnes amongst Jacob's descendants, as well as the Daniel McCarty Herrod, and the Daniel McCarty Moore. My husband descends through Jacob's son Joseph McCarty who was married to Nancy? Boyd, and their daughter Mary Jane McCarty, wife of Daniel Moore.

The other line has very little documentation proving their line, other then their Jacob had a son Hugh Blair McCarty. But as was pointed out to me, there were a lot of men named Hugh Blair during those times because of a famous Scottish theologian named Hugh Blair. It's like all the John Wesley's, Lorenzo Dow's and others that were named after famous men of religion.

I think we have enought proof now to claim this line. Now I'm trying to diplomatically tell the "other" Jacob McCarty descendants of my findings.

Would be very interested in corresponding with all of you on this subject.
