James McIndree/McEndree/McKendree Richmond to Halifax County, Virginia
Posted by: Gloria J. Tune (ID *****2201) Date: February 08, 2012 at 21:01:25
  of 1494

Seeking information on James McEndree/McKendree who married Mary Meeks Millner, widow of Luke Millner from Richmond County, Virginia sometime prior to 17 FEB 1751/52 per the Married Well and Often Marriages of Robert K. Headley, Jr. James would have been born circa 1700-1710, or possibly earlier.

James and Mary had 2 daughters, according to the will of Mary's son Luke Millner Jr. One was a Caty McEndree, born 29 OCT 1753 in North Farnham Parish, Richmond County, Virginia & listed in the North Farnham Parish Records by George H. S. King, page 124. I am looking for the name of the other daughter who is not listed in the same record book.

James and Mary left Richmond County for Halifax County, Virginia sometime between 1754-1764 where we find James estate sale:
Halifax Co., VA Will Book 1
P.26: JAMES McENDREE Account of Sales
Dated: September 10, 1764 R.WOODING, Exr.

Signed: R. WOODING, Exr.
Returned: 19 August 1773. O.R.

Mary Meeks Millner McEndree appears in this record:
Halifax Co., VA Deeds Bk. 7 & 8
Bk. 7 p.164: Mar 24, 1768 from Mary McENDREE, widow of Halifax, to Robert WOODING, Gent, 65, 1 Negro man slave named Sambo, 6 head of cattle, 11 sheep, 1 sorrel horse known by the name Irishman, 3 featherbeds & furniture, 2 iron pots & hooks, 5 pewter dishes, 12 pewter plates, 2 tables, 1 seal skin trunk. Signed - Mary (M her mark) McENDREE. Wit - TRAVERS TUNE, ELIZABETH (X) HILL. Recorded July 21, 1768.

Mary's son Mark Milner married Sarah Tune, sister of the Travers Tune listed in the above document. Travis Tune is my 5th g. grandfather who married a woman named Frances. We do not have her maiden name and I'm curious whether it might have been the other McEndree unnamed daughter.

I'm also curious about the Elizabeth Hill who also witnessed this record. She was the widow of James Hill who died circa 1757, in Halifax County, Virginia.
