re harris/ hudson, etc families mecklenburg co, va
Posted by: belva cauthen (ID *****8288) Date: May 29, 2007 at 14:19:37
  of 704

this info and other posts was recently posted on the harris forum but would also like to post on the mecklenburg co, va forum.

my research shows, per these southside va records, that samuel harris and my william harris, sr/ frances goode were the sons of william harris/ judith hudson, per william harris/ judith hudson's 1778 mecklenburg co, va will but i am trying to locate other descendants of william harris/ judith hudson to also participate in the harris dna project.

i would definitely appreciate any help and info.

per info recently posted and per lunenburg co, va deed in 1750, samuel harris, executor of the estate of adlar david, sold land to robert wade, sr on difficult creek which was adjacent william irby.

lunenburg co, va info shows that in 1749: william irby; peter hudson; edward parker; and luke smith appraised the estate of adlar david.

edward parker is indicated to have been the son-in-law of peter hudson, sr and edward parker's wife, sarah parker, sister of my judith hudson harris.

my william harris, sr/ frances goode had an agreement in 1746 in lunenburg co, va re the plantation "finneywood" with william marable and robert wooding, who married mary marable, daughter of william marable, witnessed a number of lunenburg co, va deeds re my william harris, sr/ france goode. matthew marable was the son of william marable.

info re the mcginnis family of halifax co, va shows that robert wooding; edward parker; and william irby were also involved with the estate of william mcginnis.

15 July 1749 William McGinnis patented 231 acres on both sides of Difficult Creek in Lunnenberg Co. (now Halifax Co.) Magazine of Virginia Genealogy Aug 1991, p. 175. Cavaliers Vol V p 289.

1761-23 Dec p 20(140) William McGinnis Further Inventory & Appraisement. R. Wooding, Admr. Among items listed: one young horse, one young cold, old money scales & Piece of lead. Appraisers: John Williams, Edward Parker, Thos. Covington Returned: 18 Feb 1762. CHIARITO WILL BOOK 0 1752-1773 HALIFAX CO., VA.

in fact, this info re william mcginnis also connects him with armistead watlington, who also witnessed this halifax co, va deed re my william harris, sr/ frances goode to john camp.


1769- Sept Court-p 39(238) William McGinnis Accounts Current. Ordered that William Thompson, Armistead Wotlington & John Williams do settle an Accounts Current of the estate of William McGinnis, decd & that Robert Wooding, Gent. Admr do deliver up to William Green & Alexander McGinnis part of the sd estate. Thos. Tunstall, D. Clk. 26 Dec 1767. Balance divided between eight orphans giving each child 24.17.8. Signed: Wm Thompson, Armistead Watlington, John Williams. Returned: 19 may 1768. CHIARITO WILL BOOK 0 1752-1773 HALIFAX CO., VA.

Page 199. 13 September 1764. William Harris of Lunenburg County to John Camp of same, for (pounds) 30, 400 acres, part of a tract granted by patent 15 December 1758 containing 820 acres, beginning at Sizemore's corner thence south....Buckner Stith's corner....all house, orchards, gardens, fences....
signed: William Harris.
Witness: Mat. Marable, John Coleman, Edward Wade, Armd. Watlington.
Recorded: 20 September 1764. ( Halifax Co, Va Deed Books 1759-1767)

per the info, it was john camp's family, who also married into the family of christopher hudson of lunenburg/ mecklenburg co, va.

again, my harris family is shown, per these southside va records, to have been involved there in this lunenburg/ halifax/ mecklenburg cos, va area with both peter hudson, sr's family and also with christopher hudson's family.

again, i am interested in hearing from others re my interest in our harris family and hudson families.

thank you.
