Skipper Misc. Notes VA, NC, SC
Posted by: ann gallagher (ID *****8210) Date: July 19, 2006 at 09:39:37
  of 335

Sorry this is so long.

Hi, I thought you all would like to have some of my misc notes. Some notes have been sent to me in emails, I have the records for my ancestors, and some notes are off line. I tried to put this in order by dates. I am still trying to locate more information on my ancestor Hugh / Hugh Gilbert Skipper in SC or NC before 1760/1790. I hope my notes will help others while they search for their Skipper ancestor. Ann Gallagher - Lockhart Texas - June 12, 2006 ladysilverdollar1@hotmail.com......I have noticed a pattern in NC and SC on Skippers. But I'm still looking for my Hugh Gilbert Skipper. I have marked my Ancestors with a ******* below.


NOTE: 2006 - I HAVE NO SKIPPER SURNAME FAMILY IN GA., GEORGETOWN, Alabama, OR TENN THAT I KNOW OF. ALL of my family live in the Darlington, Hartsville, McBee, Chesterfield SC area still today.


My Misc. Notes: - On Sciper, Skipper, Skiper, Skeper, Scipper. Like other SKIPPER families, there is persistant family lore of Native American blood, but no proof of it. Scipper in documents from the 18th century. I believe that this is only a spelling variant.


Indian Tribes Not Sure Of Yet: - Nottoway - ? Cheroenhaka - Nottoway joined with ? Meherrin Tribe - ? Chowan Indians - Catawba


Misc Note: When Did This Event Happen? Also did these two Skipper Men Have Families? On the eastern side of the river (the Pee Dee,) near the dividing line between Richmond County, and what is now Marlborough District, lived two young men, named Skipper, of mixed blood, but peaceable and inoffensive. They had taken parol, however, and for no other offence, were seized by the Whigs on both sides of the line and hung. NOTE: May have been George2 Skipper and Samuel Skipper that were hung????


Misc Note: Signed and Tribe of the Indian representatives who witnessed the signing of the treaty . What year was this treaty signed and where? This was sent to Ann in a Email..

England ? 1650 ? / VA. John Skipper is said to have been born before 1650 in England, to have emigrated to Virginia in the mid to late 17th century, and to have died about 1700. His documented appearances are few. A person of his name witnessed a legal transaction in Middlesex Co., Virginia in 1682. The same John Skipper or another married Jane ( ? ), widow of John Snowden, about 1686, administered Snowden's estate in nearby St. Marys Co., Maryland, and died before 1694, when his own estate was administered there by twice-widowed Jane, who lived past 1696

VA. 1667 / 1668 - Francis Skiper was married to Ann (?) , an African American woman, before February 1667/8 when they sold land in Norfolk County [W&D E:1666-75; Orders 1666-75, 73]. Free African Americans were beginning to be assimilated into colonial Virginia society in the mid-seventeenth century. Many were the result of mixed race marriages: Francis Skiper was married to Ann, an African American woman, before 2 February 1667/8 when they sold 100 acres of land in Norfolk County [W&D E:28; Orders 1666-75, 73]. They may have been the ancestors of George1 Skiper SR., one of the Nottoway Indians who sold land in Southampton County on 2 February 1749 [DB 1:98].

1668 Northampton Co. to JAMES TURNER of Isle of Wight Co., Va. 23 Nov. 1748 7 pounds Va. money 400 acres more or less on the south side of Potacasa swamp, joining the mouth of the Spring branch and the swamp, part of a patent to GEORGE SKIPPER 1 May 1668, all houses, orchards, gardens, fences etc. Wit: JOHN SIMPSON, NICHOLAS MONGER Reg. Northampton Co. Nov. Ct. 1748 J. Edwards C. Ct.

NC / 1668 GEORGE SKIPPER, who would have become 21 about 1668, apparently took a group from Nansemond Village 40 miles southwest to found a new Native American Cooperative at Potecasi NC, which he apparently headed until his death in 1728 at about 80 years of age


VA. / 1671 Norfolk County, Va Skipper / Scipper ? Francis - A White Man and Ann (?) his wife - ? Negro not sure - The Skipper/Scipper family may have descended ? from Francis Skiper, a white man, whose "Negro" wife, Ann, was tithable in Norfolk County, Virginia in 1671 [Orders 1666-75, 73, 73a, 84a, 89, 92 by Morgan, American Slavery-American Freedom, 335].

NC / 1685 George1 Skeper Sr. / Skiper b abt 1685 sued in Bertie County NC by George Allen over servant Mary Bailey


NC / 1685 George1 Skeper Sr./ Skiper b abt 1685 sued in Bertie County NC by George Allen / over servant Mary Bailey, she may be related to Wat Bailey - Wat Bailey is one of the Chiefmen of the Nottoway George1 Skeper / Skiper above had a son named George2 Skiper Are there anymore children? George1 Skiper, born perhaps 1685, was sued in Bertie Court by George Allen who accused him of having detained his servant, Mary Bailey, between 17 December 1719 and 13 August 1722 [Saunders, Colonial Records of North Carolina, V]. Mary Bailey may have been related to Wat Bailey, one of the "Chief men of the Nottoway Indians" who sold their land in Southampton County on 2 February 1749/50 [DB 1:98]. George was called George Skeper, Sen., when he purchased 120 acres in Bertie County in Urahaw Woods on the northeast side of Quarter Swamp (present day Northampton County) from James Skeper on 6 August 1725 [DB B:184]. He and his wife, Mary, sold this land on 11 January 1728 [DB C:118]. On 14 March 1729 he sold 615 acres in this same area on the south side of Potecasie Creek which he had patented on 1 January 1725 [DB C:230]. He received a patent for 200 acres on the north side of the Neuse River on 21 March 1742/3 which was probably the land he sold by deed proved in Johnston County between 1 November 1746 and April 1750 [DB 1:20].(1) He may have been the father of 2. George2 Skipper, born perhaps 1720.
Note: George1 Skipper had son George2 Skipper

John Skipper is said to have been born before 1650 in England, to have emigrated to Virginia in the mid to late 17th century, and to have died about 1700. His documented appearances are few. A person of his name witnessed a legal transaction in Middlesex Co., Virginia in 1682.

As the reputed father of James, John has sometimes been identified as "John Skipwith," usually casting him as a brother of prominent immigrants, Sir Grey Skipwith and Diana Skipwith Dale (above), who, in fact, had no such brother and are not known to have arrived in Virginia with other Skipwith relatives. Unfortunately (because a double tie to the Skipwiths in this family tree would be welcome), there is no easy fit of an immigrant named John to the well-established Skipwith ancestry. A more likely candidate than John for James Skipper's father was George Skipper, Sr., who owned property near that of James in Northampton Co. in the mid-1720s and had a son, George, Skipper Jr., perhaps a brother of James Skipper, who lived next to James Skipper and, like him, moved south to Craven Co. in the early 1740s. - http://users.wirelessfrontier.net/~acree/yunknowns.html

NC (area later became Northampton Co.) >Craven Co., NC > d. after 1763 Anson Co., NC and his wife, Mary ( BAILEY ) Skipper b. ca 1705 d. unknown. He was not alive at the time of Charity's birth, Barnabas Skipper, his son, was living in NC, SC during this time period. He married his wife, Temperance ( ? ) Skipper, in about 1810, so it is possible that he had an Indian wife prior to that. In fact, Barnabas's Skipper mother was Indian, Mary ( Bailey ) Skipper. NOTE: Barnabas Skipper Served in War of 1812, GASQUE'S BATT'N, SOUTH CAROLINA MILITIA. Note: Barnabas2 Skipper Jr. and Temperance were the parents of 9 children, some born in SC, and others in TN. They were 1. Wesley Skipper , 2. Sion Skipper , 3. Silas Skipper , 4. Barney B. Skipper , 5. Martha Skipper , 6. Temperance Skipper , 7. Rebecca Skipper , 8. Nancy Skipper , and 9. Elizabeth Skipper.
Note:
Barnabas2 Skipper JR. was son of Barnabas1 Skipper SR.
Silas Skipper was son of older Barnabas' Skipper
Udie ? was father of Auther
Barnabas Skipper son of George2 Skipper JR.
George2 Skipper JR. son of George1 Skipper SR. George2 may have been hung with son Samuel.
Barnabas2 Skipper Jr had nine children:
1. Wesley Skipper
2. Sion Skipper
3. Silas Skipper
4. Barney B. Skipper
5. Martha Skipper
6. Temperence Skipper
7. Rebecca Skipper
8. Nancy Skipper
9. Elizabeth Skipper


Note: Elizabeth Quick was probably another daughter of Barnaby Skipper, maybe his eldest.

NC / SC 1740 Other "evidence" that has lead me to my conclusions are the frequency of first names that are among Abraham Skipper , John Skipper, and Isaac's Skippers desendents that were in Barnabas' family. Among these are Needham Skipper, John Skipper, Silas Skipper, Barnabas Skipper, Barnaby Skipper, etc. Barnabus Skipper b. ca 1740 went to Marlboro Co., SC before 1800 and is listed in the census there, as is his son John, so the John Skipper in 1800 Brunswick Co., NC is not his.

Since then I have read the same text in the book at my public library. I agree that Ann may have been Native American, since Indians and Blacks were often clumped together during the colonial times. SKIPPER FAMILY The Skipper/Scipper family may have descended from Francis Skiper, a white man, whose "Negro" wife, Ann, was tithable in Norfolk County, Virginia in 1671 [Orders 1666-75, 73, 73a, 84a, 89, 92 by Morgan, American Slavery-American Freedom, 335]. She was still living there in 1691 [Deeds 1686-95, 130].<BR> George1 Skiper, born perhaps 1685, was sued in Bertie Court by George Allen who accused him of having detained his servant, Mary Bailey, between 17 December 1719 and 13 August 1722 [Saunders, Colonial Records of North Carolina, V]. Mary Bailey may have been related to Wat Bailey, one of the "Chief men of the Nottoway Indians" who sold their land in Southampton County on 2 February 1749/50 [DB 1:98]. George was called George Skeper, Sen., when he purchased 120 acres in Bertie County in Urahaw Woods on the northeast side of Quarter Swamp (present day Northampton County) from James Skeper on 6 August 1725 [DB B:184]. He and his wife, Mary, sold this land on 11 January 1728 [DB C:118]. On 14 March 1729 he sold 615 acres in this same area on the south side of Potecasie Creek which he had patented on 1 January 1725 [DB C:230]. He received a patent for 200 acres on the north side of the Neuse River on 21 March 1742/3 which was probably the land he sold by deed proved in Johnston County between 1 November 1746 and April 1750 [DB 1:20].(1) He may have been the father of 2. George2, born perhaps 1720. 2. George2 Skiper, born perhaps 1720, was one of the "Chief men of the Nottoway Indian Nation" who sold their land in Southampton County, Virginia on 2 February 1749 [DB 1:98, 131, 144]. He may have been the George Skipper who the previous day, 1 February 1749/50, purchased 200 acres in Anson County, North Carolina, on the north side of the Pee Dee River [DB A:92]. He sold 50 acres of this land and eight horses to (his son?) Barnabas Skipper on 15 February 1765 [DB 3:188, 192]. He was called George2 Skipper, Sr., in the 1763 list of taxables for Anson County NC where he was taxable on five tithes [Holcolm, Anson County, North Carolina, 122]. His sons were most likely i. Barnabas, born perhaps 1744, taxable on one tithe in Anson County NC in 1763. ii. Benjamin, born perhaps 1745, taxable on one tithe in Anson County in 1763. Some of their likely descendants were i. Moses Skipper/ Scipper, a "Mulato" taxable in Bladen County in 1768 [Byrd, Bladen County Tax Lists, I:9] and taxable in Brunswick County on one "white poll" in 1772 [GA 11.1], head of a Brunswick County household of 4 males and 2 females in 1790 [NC:189] and 5 "other free" in 1800 [NC:14]. ii. Isom, a "Mulato" taxable in Bladen County in 1768 [Byrd, Bladen County Tax Lists, I:4]. iii. Clemonds, taxed in Brunswick County on one "white poll" in 1772 [GA 11.1]. iv. Urias Scipper, head of a Brunswick County household of 8 "other free" in 1800 [NC:14]. v. Isaac Scipper, head of a Brunswick County household of 3 white males in 1790 (abstracted as "Supper" [NC:189] and 8 "other free" in 1800 [NC:14].(2) He entered 125 acres on Rattlesnake Branch on 7 December 1704 [Pruitt, Land Entries: Brunswick County, 91]. vi. Jesse Scipper, head of a Brunswick County household of 2 males and one female in 1790 (abstracted as "Supper") [NC:189] and 3 "other free" in 1800 [NC:14]. vii. John Scipper, head of a Brunswick County household of 1 male and 3 females in 1790 [NC:189] and 5 white females in 1800 [NC:14]. He entered 50 acres in Brunswick County on 13 December 1800 [Pruitt, Land Entries: Brunswick County, 67]. viii. Abram Scipper, head of a Brunswick County household of 3 males and 3 females in 1790 [NC:189] and 4 white females in 1800 [NC:14]. He entered 100 acres bordering his land and John Hoggs on Town Creek on 24 September 1807 [Pruitt, Land Entries: Brunswick County, 106]. ix. John Skipper, Jr., head of a Brunswick County household of 3 "other free" in 1810 [NC:228]. x. Nancy Skipper, married John Tann, 3 October 1756 Chowan County bond, Joseph Price bondsman. Endnotes:
NOTE: 1. Only the index entry has survived for George Skipper's Johnston County deed. 2. There were no persons counted as "other free" in the 1790 census for Brunswick County. The Skipper family, John Hays, and James Potter were counted as white in 1790 [NC:189] and "other free" in 1800 [NC:14].

NC 1768 / 1770 - The colonial tax lists for Bladen County listed the following mixed-race families as "Mulattoes" from 1768 to 1770: Braveboy, Carter, Chavis, Clark, Cox, Cumbo, Dimry, Doyal (Dial), Drake, Evans, Goin, Groom, Hammons, Hayes, Hunt, Ivey, James, Johnston, Jones, Kersey, Lamb, Locklear, Lowery, Overton, Oxendine, Perkins, Phillips, Russell, Skipper, Sweat, Sweeting, Walden, Wharton, Wilkins, and Wilson. One person was called an Indian: Thomas Britt [ Byrd, William L., III, Bladen County Tax Lists, 1768-1774, I: 4-9, 14-17, 24-46, 50 ]. http://www.freeafricanamericans.com/introduction.htm
Mixed-race families from Virginia were among the earliest settlers of Bladen County, North Carolina, from which Robeson County was formed in 1787. They were described in a report to the colonial governor of North Carolina in 1754:
50 families a mixt Crew, a lawless People, possess the Lands without patent or paying quit rents; shot a Surveyor for coming to view vacant lands being inclosed in great swamps.
... No Indians...in the county [Saunders, Colonial Records, V:161].
The principal members of the Nottoway and Nansemond living in present-day Southampton County were: Sam, Frank, Jack Will, John Turner, Wat Bailey, and George Skiper ( in 1750 ). http://www.freeafricanamericans.com/introduction.htm
Since they left the Southeast, it is difficult to determine the extent to which they mixed with the free African American population of Bertie County. Many of their names were recorded in the deeds of 1766 and 1777 by which they leased over 8,000 acres of the land in the southwest corner of Bertie County between the Roanoke River and Roquist Pocosin to the Attorney General: James Allen - Watt Gibson,
The Cherokee lived in the mountainous regions of North Carolina and East Tennessee and had little contact with the colonists. http://www.freeafricanamericans.com/introduction.htm

NC. 1772 There were Skippers in Brunswick Co. in 1772 ( Moses and Clemonds Skipper ) and in Bladen Co. in 1763 (Jos., Fred, and Hardy) from which Brunswick was formed. I strongly suspect that the Brunswick Co. Skippers descended from some of these. NOTE: Moses and Clemonds were brothers.

NC. / SC. 1787? Barnabus Skipper In Anson County N.C owning some land in this County in the early to late 1700 was in a book at the Gaston County Library showing records of land owners in North Carolina not sure if this is your Barnabus Skipper. But there was also a Benjamin Skipper i think i recall reading they had land joining each other. Skipper, believe may be Barnabus Skipper, lived in SC who had following children: Benjamin Skipper, b. 1787, SC, d. aft 1850 (Laurens?) GA; Daniel Skipper , b. 1788, SC, d. 18547, GA; Barney B. Skipper, b. bet 1776-1794; Elizabeth; John; Joseph. Have a bit more; i.e., spouses, etc. My great grandmother was Rachael ( Skipper) Bellflower dau. of Benjamin Skipper. She was b. abt 1832, Laurens Co., GA, d. aft 1870 Laurens?, GA. Married Mark Bellflower, Apr 20, 1856. Children John W. and Wright Allen (grandfather). Barnabas Skipper is listed with 4 males over the age of 16 and 1 son under 16 in Richmond Co. in 1790 census. His four youngest sons, Barnabas Skipper, Isaac Skipper, John Skipper and Silas Skipper would have fallen in this category. Barnabas Skipper would have been about 10 in 1790. Barnabas' Skippers brother, Benjamin Skipper is listed in the Richmond Co. at the same time with 2 males over 16. Abraham Skipper who could be Barnabas' Skipper son was listed in Brunswick Co. with 1 male over 16 and 2 under 16 and 3 females. Since Barnabas' Skipper son was born between 1745 and 1755, it is reasonable to think that this could very well be Barnabas' son, Abraham Skipper. The only other Abraham Skippers listed in 1790 Census were Abraham Skipper and Abraham Skipper Jr. in Georgetown, SC. One can assume that Jr. was the son of the Abraham Skipper Jr. in SC. had 1 male over 16 and 3 males under 16 and 3 females in his household. This would lead me to believe that Abraham Skipper Jr. would be the father of at least 4 children in 1790. If his father were Barnabas' son that would mean that he would be about 35 to 45 years old. If he fathered Abham Skipper Jr. when he was about 20, Jr. would be about 25 years old in 1790. Althougth it could be possible, I think it unlikely, therefor I concluded that the Abraham Skipper in Brunswick Co was the son of Barnabas Skipper. It further makes sense to me that his younger brothers, John Skipper and then Isaac Skipper would follow him to Brunswick Co. John Skipper is listed in Brunswick Co. with 1 male over 16 and 3 females. In the1800 Census in Brusnwick Co., NC, he is listed with 1 white male under 10 and 1 up to 45 and 1 white female from 10 to 16, 1 from 16 to 26, and 1 from 26 to 45.


1787? Temperance Skipper , born 1787? , after her husbands death, in 1855 married secondly to Charles B. Jordan. NOTE: They are listed on the 1860 census, but no where after this.

NC / TENN. / Arkansas 1790 Census - JOSEPH W. and LOUISA (GARNTO) SKIPPER 1856 PIONEERS OF CONWAY COUNTY ARKANSAS - After the Norman conquest of England in 1066, the people were required to take a second name for tax purposes. Most were given occupational surnames. Dolan’s English Ancestral Names says SKIPPER comes from an old Norman word meaning "basket maker". A William leSkippere (or William the basket maker) can be found in records of the late 1100’s. Clemon’s American Marriage Records Before 1699 lists the marriages of three Skipper women in the Boston, Massachusetts area as early as 1653. This is the earliest record of Skippers in America found at this time. The first U. S. Census of 1790 lists eight Skipper heads-of-homes in North Carolina: Barnabas, Abraham, Benjamin, James, John, Joseph, Moses and Nathan. While connections have not been made yet, it is likely that our subject, Joseph Skipper is linked to one or more of these North Carolina Skippers. Known records show that Joseph came from, and was probably born in, New Hanover, North Carolina in 1814. During the early 1850’s, he took his family and headed west, stopping for a while in Tennessee, and then arriving in the Lanty area of Conway County in 1856. Indications are that they came in wagons pulled by oxen. The 1850 Census of New Hanover County, N.C., lists the family as Joseph, 36, farmer: Louisa, wife, 19: James, 2: and David, 1. Listed below these is a Charles, age 8, and Rebecca Garnto, mother of Louisa. (Charles’ position in the family is not clear; speculation is that he was Joseph’s son by a previous marriage; note the difference in Joseph and Louisa’s ages, and that she would have been only 13 years old when Charles was born.) All in this family are said to have been born in North Carolina. The 1860 Census finds them in Washington Township, Conway County, Arkansas. Members of the family are Joseph, 47, head of family; Louisa, 29, wife; Charles, 18. "works as a farmer;" James, 12; David, 10; John, 8. (all born in N. C.); Caroline, 6; Laura, 4, (both born in Tennessee, indicating a two to four year stay in that state); Luezer (spelling not clear), 3; and George, 1 month old (both born in Arkansas). Rebecca Garnto, who "knits and sews", is still with the family. Land grant records show that Joseph purchased 80 acres (at $0.75 per acre) in 1857. Later purchases of 280 acres were made in 1860. Sons John, David and George also made subsequent land purchases. These land holdings and the families that sprang up in the area apparently caused local residents to call the area "Skipper Mountain". The Civil War (1861-1865) had some devastating effects on the Skippers. Joseph, who was a staunch Republican and believer in the Union, joined the Union Army when they took over North Arkansas. Records show he joined at Batesville and was "mustered in" as a corporal in Company "B", 1st Battalion Arkansas Infantry Regiment on April 20, 1862 for a six-month enlistment. He was stationed at Helena, AR. where he became ill in November and was sent to General Hospital in St. Louis. He was "mustered out" December 31st, at Benton Barracks, MO. Family stories say his home was burned and his cattle stolen by bushwhackers and that he was often referred to as "an old reprobate" by his neighbors and relatives who disagreed with his political beliefs. His (unknown) illness is said to have affected him until his death in 1878. Louisa filed for a widow’s pension in 1881. She apparently lived until the late 1800’s. Their gravesites are not known, but it is believed they are buried either in the McClaren Cemetery in unmarked graves or in a now-forgotten family cemetery somewhere in the hills between Solgohachia and Lanty. [Round Mountain is about half way between Lanty and Solgohachia.] The 1870 Census listed the family: J. W. (Joseph), 55, farmer; Susan (probably Susan Louisa), 40, housekeeper; (older sons James and David have started families); John, 19; Caroline, 17; Jane, 14 (probably "Luezer" since listed as born in AR); (Laura, who was born in TN, is not listed, so may have died); George, 10; Mary, 7; Dunkin, 4; and Wilson and Mavan (or Meyan) age 3, who were probably twins. Rebecca Garnto, 65, is "boarding." By the 1880 Census the family has shrunk to Sueza (Susan Louisa). 49, widow, keeping house: J. W. (John), 29, son, widower, farmer; G. W. (George) single, farmer; Mavan (who may have also been called 'Deed'), age 13 (her twin, Wilson, must have died); and Rebecca Garnto, mother, widow, and this time listed as 78 years of age. Probably most, if not all, the Skippers connected with Conway County could trace back to this couple that settled in the Lanty area in 1856. It would take a tremendous study to locate and name them all since there are now (known to this writer) great, great, great, great, grandchildren of Joseph and Louisa Skipper. Joseph W. Skipper Children:
Charles 1842 New Hanover County, North Carolina, by a presumed first wife.
James 1848 New Hanover County, North Carolina, by Louisa Garnto
David James 1849
John (J.W.) 1852
Caroline 1854 Tennessee
Laura 1856 (died before 1870?)
Luezer (Jane) 1857 Arkansas
George (G. W.) 1860 Ira Skipper's father?
Mary 1863
Dunkin 1866
Wilson 1867 (died before 1880?)
Megan 1867 (or Mavan or Meyan "Deed"?)
Louisa's mother, Rebecca Garnto, was born around 1802 and lived at least to 1880. Susan Louisa was 49 in 1880 so she was born in 1830 or 1831.

Living with him were Arena Skipper, age 35, female, born in SC; Thomas age 9, male, born in SC , and Celia A. Skipper, female, age 4, born in SC. I wonder if this is his daughter and her children, a daughter-in-law and his grandchildren, or a very young wife and his children? Anyone have an idea?

Tenn / Arkansas 1856 - Louisa Jane Skipper was the first Skipper born in Conway County Arkansas. She was born in December 1856 shortly after her parents, Joseph and Louisa Skipper, had moved there from Tennessee where they had lived a few years after their move from North Carolina. They bought property in Conway County and may have received their deed the day Louisa was born. Anyway, her nickname was 'Deed.' . Joseph Skipper had moved his family from North Carolina to Tennessee in about 1852 and then on to Arkansas in 1856, probably soon after Laura was born in Tennesse in early 1856. Conway County was a relatively new county and Springfield had just been established as a new town to serve as the county seat. Joseph bought about 80 acres in the area on the southeast side of Round Mountain which is located south of Lanty and west of Arthur. It was about a days travel west of Springfield. http://www.jamesmskipper.us/DavesDaughters/LouisaJaneSkipper.html

NC 1866 - Mary Catherine Davis was born August 1866 (per 1900 census) in what is now Columbus County, NC, but was then part of Brunswick County. This was the Livingston Creek area, near the present community of Delco, NC. This area was part of Brunswick County (and North West Township) until 1877 when it was transferred to Columbus County and became Ransom Township. Mary was born out of wedlock to Mahala Davis a daughter of Cornelius "Neal" Davis and his wife Tabitha. Mahala was charged with Bastardy in November 1866, and she and W. R. Skipper and William Smith Jr were bondsman for the Bastardy Bond. It is possible that either Skipper or Smith was the father, but that isn't conclusive.

It is not likely he will Skipper round lively for some time to come.

SC. 1893 Bennettsville May 17 Mr. McDonald Furman My Dear Sir Yours of 13th inst is before me and in reply let me say that I not only appreciate your laudable desire to rescue the traditions of an obscure race, sometimes wronged, from oblivion, but to call the public mind to a number of important facts of our brief history, both secular and religious, which in the eager haste of this fast age, our people are liable to forget. Your brief, but important, communication to the public press calling attention to things of this sort have always interested one reader at least. You will permit me to thank you very sincerely, that you, young man, as you are, have respect to the days, and the men of "auld lang syne" and can find interest and worth, if not beauty and charms amid the bygone years. And I trust that if the response of your contemporaries is not always as generous as your fond wishes may desire, that still your inquiries may bring to light facts and principles, that shall gratify and profit your own mind, and help your generation, and those who shall come after. The question now upon your mind, of which you write me is not unworthy your research. And I wish that I were able to give you more information than I can. Of course the people of "mixed breed," that we have among us in Marlborough are not known as "Redbones," and not until recently have they been called "Croatans," a name which some of them are now adopting. For generations, they have claimed to have been of "Portuguese" extraction, while commonly the white people have thought them mulattos. Since the "Revolutionary War" the Quicks and a few other names connected with them, have enjoyed the respect of white people; and all the privileges of citizenship were accorded them in consideration of "distinguished services," they rendered to the cause of independence. And the consequence has been that their complexion, their circumstances and general character has wonderfully improved, until now they are scarcely recognized as having "mixed blood" in their veins. You can see how on account of the special favor shown this family, other men of "mixed breed" would naturally claim and seek alliances with them: and so it came to pass in the years "before the war between the states," that questions would sometimes arise as to the citizenship of parties making the claim as only free whites were so accounted and many a long controversy arose in the courts over such "points in law." Judge Hudsen, was attorney in a case of this sort, and made a very thorough investigation of the question of descent and has told me more than once that he was satisfied that "several of the larger families of this color, were free from Negro blood." He says that "they have a well authenticated claim that they sprang from a parentage that came from the south of Europe, Spain or Portugal, and that with this European blood was probably some Moorish, but no evidence of Negro." Other families claim affinity with the American Indian and there can be little doubt but that their claim is just, as they have the natural characteristic marks of that aboriginal people clearly developed. While everybody believes, that some who claim to be Indian, or Moor, are unquestionably mixed with Negro. You ask me if we have "any Chavis" in Marlborough? They are here, and have been for two or three generations, and are among the best known people we have after the Quicks. And it is very likely that they have intermarried. Why, Sir, if you were here to accompany me to one of my appointments next Sunday, and take a seat in the "a.... corner," [might be Arian!] just about the hour for the service to commence, looking through the window blinds, you might see a "covered buggy with two horses (or mules) drive up, and presently a young man about "six foot three" would enter the door, lift his beaver, and with slow and courtly tread walk down the aisle, "straight as an arrow, raven locks, prominent raised cheeks, complexion brownish red," and take a seat about mid way the house, and if you were not looking for "Redbones," you might ask, "what fine looking well behaved young man is that," well that is "Lewis Chavis." He has a valuable farm, a "good bank account," his mother owns a fine place, and valuable mortgages, and he has a younger brother just as good looking, only not quite so tall. And has some cousins that are enterprising valuable citizens. But there are others of the name, not so well to do, and not so well received in social circles. These better ones however when they open their lips, betray their origins as they tell you of the "housens"and "chillens," etc. And then we have a large family of Locklears, another of Jacob Turners (?), in making a society and class of their own, who do not seem to aspire to anything higher. Poor pitiable creatures, they scorn (?) to associate with Negroes, cannot with the better class of whites, and yet many of them are good people, industrious, honest, humble citizens. Of course you will find vicious, envious, worthless fellows among them, but no more than many a "pale face" or "black skin." They have two Baptist churches in Marlborough , one of them located near the little town of Clio, where they have a large congregation, and well behaved. And the existence of the church, and a comfortable framed building to worship in, makes them a fixture in the community, and an advantage in the way of farm laborers. The other is in the upper part of the county and is not doing so well, I judge mainly for lack of a sensible pastor. The young man who does most of their preaching, being a noisy, ignorant sort of fellow, and yet sharp enough to keep his place among them. This latter church is known, in doctrine and practice, as badly mixed as the blood of its members. Feet washing, free will, immersionists. And yet the leading people of the community, who are mostly Methodists, enjoy having the church among them because it moralizes and improves the character, as well as settles and fixes laborers on their farms. Now I have filled up my space, and fear that with it all I have not met your wishes, as I certainly desired to do. If however from what I have written you shall suppose that I may yet help you in the way of information you will not hesitate to command me. With the kindest regards to your excellent father and profound veneration for your honored name through three generations, I am yours with great respect J.A.W. Thomas

1923 Clifton Sylvester Skipper ) b. 08 Aug 1923 and d. 23 Aug 1972


NC. 1923 There were Skippers in Brunswick Co. in 1772 ( Moses and Clemonds Skipper ) and in Bladen Co. in 1763 (Jos., Fred, and Hardy) from which Brunswick was formed. I strongly suspect that the Brunswick Co. Skippers descended from some of these. NOTE: Moses and Clemmonds were brothers.

? FLA. 1923/1972 - Clifton Sylvester Skipper ) b. 08 Aug 1923 and d. 23 Aug 1972) was the son of Ephraim Sylvester Skipper. Ephraim Sylvester Skipper seems to have been nicknamed Jack. The 1900 census gave the name as Jackson. His mother's death notice listed two sons, Jack and Love. The other son, Walter had died as a baby. Ephraim Sylvester Skipper (b. 22 Dec 1893, d. 15 Oct 1975) married Lula Mae Pemberton (b. 16 Nov 1895, d. 06 Nov 1994). Ephraim Sylvester was the son of George Washington Skipper and Rebecca Ann Williams Skipper. George Washington Skipper was the son of Lawson Sylvester and Catherine Cumbee Skipper. Lalwson Sylvester Skipper was the son of Lawson Kenner and Catherine Ann Hinson Skipper, from the Beaverdam area of Columbus County. It appears that he left Brunswick County and went to the Beaverdam area about 1847. He returned to Brunswick County a few years later. Then George Washington Skipper moved into the same area and married a widow Helen C. Nobles. Their first son, Needham Skipper was my great grandfather. I am certain that my George Washington Skipper is related to your George Washington Skipper (and Lawson Kenner Skipper), but I don't know exactly how. Lawson Kenner Skipper was the son of Issac Skipper, Jr. He had a half-=brother, Needham Benton (a.k.a. Needham Skipper) and a half brother Rivera Quincy Skipper, who moved to Leon, Florida.

2003 MISC. NOTE and Email: From: "Brenda Dillon" <bj04@attbi.com> Sent: Friday, March 28, 2003 8:37 AM Subject: [Melungeon] Shared Research - The Blounts were Tuscarora and Thomas Blount became chief of that tribe. During the Tuscarora war ca:1711, it was the YAMASSEE that had assisted the colonists in subjugating that tribe. William Reade son of John Reade (ing) Birth abt 1673 Death: Feb 1764 Brunswick Co. Va. Married Mary Children: Joseph Reed Birth 05 May 1700, Chowan, North Carolina Death:1750 Will: Anson Co. NC [his will mentions land near the Catawba River aka Wateree River, cited in Aldridge Records vol 2, p. 89] Anson Co. appears to have been a refuge for the Va / NC Indians who were part of a diaspora from those colonies. The following can further demonstrate this: George 1 Skiper, born say 1685, was sued in Bertie County by George Allen who accused him of having detained his servant, Mary Bailey,between 17 December 1719 and 13 August 1722 [ Saunders, Colonial Records of the "Chief men of the Nottoway Indians" who sold their land in Southampton County on February 2, 1749 / 50 { DB1:98 ] George was called George Skeper, Sen, when he purchased 120 acres in Bertie County in Urahaw Woods on the northeast side of Quarter Swamp [ present-day Northampton County] from James Skeper on 6 August 1725. He and his wife Mary sold this land on 11 January 1728. On 14 March 1729 he sold 615 acres in this same area on the south side of Potecasie Creek which he had patented on 1 January 1725 [DBB:184;C:118,230]. He received a patent for 200 acres on the north side of the Neuse River on 21 March 1742/3 which was probably the land he sold by deed proved in Johnston County between 1 November 1746 and April 1750 [DB:1:20] He may have been the father of George , born say 1720. George Skiper, born say 1720, was one of the "Chief men of the Nottoway Indian Nation" who sold their land in Southampton County, Virginia on 2 February 1749 [DB 1:98,131,144] He may have been the George Skipper who the previous day, 1 February 1749/50, purchased 200 acres in Anson County, North Carolina on the north side of the Pee Dee River [DB A:92]He sold 80 acres of this land and 8 horses to { his son } Barnabas Skipper on 15 February 1765 [DB 3:188,192] He was called George Skipper, Sr. in 1763 list of taxables for Anson County where he was taxable on 5 tithes [Holcolm,Anson County, NC, 122] His sons were most likely i. Barnabas ,born say 1744, taxable on one tithe in Anson Co. in 1763 ii. Benjamin, born say 1745, taxable on one tithe in Anson County in 1763

NC / SC Jordan Gibson, Jr. who recorded a plat for 150 acres adjoining Jordan Gibson SR, on the southwest side of the Pee Dee River in Craven County, South Carolina, on 26 January 1765 [Colonial Plats 8:20]. He sold 200 acres in Anson County, North Carolina, on the north side of the Pee Dee River on Falling Creek branch of Hitchcock's Creek to Benjamin Deas on 15 November 1768 by deed witnessed by Gideon Gibson, and he sold another 300 acres in Anson County in the same area on 2 May 1777 [DB7:224,320]. Perhaps he was related to Thomas Gibson who purchased land in this same area of Anson County on 18 August 1761 [ DB 6:190 ]. According to Gregg, Jordan went to the west as companion of Daniel Boone. He or perhaps a son by the same name was among those "killed by Indians" in North Carolina on 7 January 1788 [NCGSJ IX:236].

Note: I'm not real good on the counties going from NC down to SC. I know where Marlboro County SC, Chesterfield, Darlington, and MCBee SC are. What I'm not sure of is where is Anson, Brunswick County? I am hoping somsone will locate something on my Hugh/Hugh Gilbert Skipper.

South Carolina Skipper's Misc - Note: I am trying to find all Skippers in SC and put them in order by Year / Date - Hi, I thought you all would like to have some of my misc notes. Some notes have been sent to me in emails, I have the records for my ancestors, and some notes are off line. I tried to put this in order by dates. I am still trying to locate more information on my ancestor Hugh / Hugh Gilbert Skipper in SC or NC before 1760/1790. I hope my notes will help others while they search for their Skipper ancestor. Ann Gallagher - Lockhart Texas - June 12, 2006 ladysilverdollar1@hotmail.com......I have noticed a pattern in NC and SC on Skippers. But I'm still looking for my Hugh Gilbert Skipper. I have marked my Ancestors with a ******* below.


NOTE: I have No Skipper Family in Ga., Tenn., or Horry County, SC that i know of. My family to this day all live in Mcbee in Chesterfield County, Hartsville, and Darlington County SC.


My Misc. Notes: - On Sciper, Skipper, Skiper, Skeper, Scipper. Like other SKIPPER families, there is persistant family lore of Native American blood, but no proof of it. Scipper in documents from the 18th century. I believe that this is only a spelling variant.


Indian Tribes Not Sure Of Yet: - Nottoway - ? Cheroenhaka - Nottoway joined with ? Meherrin Tribe - ? Chowan Indians - Catawba


NC. / SC. - Misc Note: When Did This Event Happen? Also did these two Skipper Men Have Families? On the eastern side of the river (the Pee Dee,) near the dividing line between Richmond County, and what is now Marlborough District, lived two young men, named Skipper, of mixed blood, but peaceable and inoffensive. They had taken parol, however, and for no other offence, were seized by the Whigs on both sides of the line and hung.
Note: May have been Samuel son of George2 and His father George2 Skipper that were both hung. Father and son. No later dated records located on either.

VA. / NC. / SC. 1720s/1834 - Skipper and Quick Notes: Date: Fri, 15 Sep 2000 01:24:04 -0400 From: larry cates <lcates@northstate.net> To: SCMARLBO-L@rootsweb.com Message-id: <3.0.5.32.20000915012404.007c0160@mail.northstate.net> Subject: [SC MARLBO-L] Solomon Quick's wife Content-type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii" This message has been posted already to the Quick and Skipper mailing lists and to the Richmond-Scotland County discussion group. I think it is an important enough development to merit distribution on this list as well. I am also sending a transcribed document, given to me by Verna Quick which relates to this matter and solidifies even further this remote Skipper-Quick connection. I am so impressed that the Skippers of early Richmond (Anson) County can be traced to a refugee and former headman from the Nottoway Indian tribe of Southampton Co., VA. William Byrd, in his History of the Dividing Line, mentions visiting a Nottoway Indian village in the very last days of their existence as a coherent tribe (late 1720's.) A digest of that encounter is given in Douglas Right's, THE AMERICAN INDIAN IN NORTH CAROLINA (91-2.) "The name of this latter tribe (the Nottoway) signified "snakes" or "enemies" in their language (that of the Meherrin), and the name applied to them by the coastal tribes, Mangoac, was the general name for the Iroquois, meaning "stealthy ones," frequently written Mingo. "A runner was dispatched to the Nottoway Town, on the river of that name, to announce the visit of the surveyors. The women of the village had been posted on a hill to watch for the visitors, and greeted them with vociferous whoops. At this signal the chief men of the place came out and escorted the party into the fort, a palisade about ten feet high, leaning outwards slightly to make scaling difficult. Each side of the square was about one hundred feet long; loopholes were set at intervals. Within the enclosure were huts made of saplings covered with bark. Furniture consisted of frames covered with mats or deer skins. "The young men, who had painted themselves in hideous manner, entertained with war dances. Music was furnished for the dancing by means of an Indian drum fashioned out of a gourd with a skin stretched across the mouth. The women were dressed in red and blue coats made of cloth bought from traders, and their hair was beaded with white and blue shell beads. However, the charm of their attire was nullified because "the whole Winter's dirt was so crusted on their Skins, that it requir'd a strong appetite to accost them.' Firearms were in general use, only the small boys handling bows and arrows. The population of the town was about two hundred, and they were said to be the only Indians of any consequence then living in Virginia. Their rapid decline was attributed chiefly to disease and rum. "...The Indians provided corn for the surveyors' horses and received in turn what rum was left over from the night's sojourn. The exchange was evidently satisfactory to the Nottoway, as we are told that they loved rum 'better than they do their wives and children.' Baskets made of silk grass were offered by the women and such offerings being looked upon with suspicion by their visitors, who regarded and Indian present as 'a liberality put out to Interest, and a bribe placed to the greatest advantage.' At the departure of the guests, the braves of the village fired a salute in their honor." George Skipper was probably a grown man at the time this visit would have taken place. His supposed son Barnabus is now believed to have been the father of Elizabeth Quick and ancestor to many Quicks in Marlboro County SC . When I think of the Quick stories about my great grandfather Moses, and the quantities of brandy and whiskey appearing in the estate sales of Burwell and Solomon Quick, I realize that alcohol consumption and abuse among mixed race individuals probably has a long history, stretching back to the days when white traders began selling rum and firearms to Indians for hides. Then, too, the violent streak noted in many of these families may take its origins in Native American resentment toward a larger alien culture crowding out its own and driving all before it -- not to mention the traditional importance of warfare in Amerindian culture even before white contact. Somehow, it helps to know that two basically negative traits I have noticed in twentieth century relatives has a historical context. - ----Recently, I have come across early records in Richmond County, NC -- just across the state line from Marlboro -- which relate to the first Solomon Quick and possibly to his wife, Elizabeth's family. I never expected to get this kind of information on old Solomon and it is NOT definitive, but it may be some of the best material we will ever have to go on, given the modest economic circumstances and possible mixed race status of this early Quick family. In my experience they tend to be quite elusive. Solomon Quick was definitely in Richmond County before he shows up in South Carolina. Look at this... State Land Grant 4108 in Anson County to Solomon Quick Entry made 27 May 1778 Issued 3 Sep 1779 Surveyed 30 May 1778 This land was located on the drains (i.e. headwaters) of White's Creek. White's runs into S.C. from N.C. and empties into the Pee Dee in the upper section of Marlboro. It lies very close to Marks and Solomon's Creeks, where the Skippers lived. Chainbearers for this grant were Solomon Quick himself and Barnaby Skipper. This was about the time Solomon would have been beginning his married life. I have no idea of when or how Solomon disposed of this tract. December Term, 1785-- Solomon Quick was presented by the grand jury in Richmond County for allegedly taking a spotted (white and red) steer, the property of Thomas Dobbins. witnesses: Tabitha and Samuel Danby. During the year 1788, Ann Quick was one of several persons called upon to testify in Richmond County Court who failed to appear. 1790 Census Solomon Quick appears in CHERAW District, SC 1 male over 16 2 males under 16 (viz. born c. 1774--1790) 5 females Richmond County, NC Capias Writ issued against Solomon Quick et al as follows: "No Carolina Richmon County this day George Cole complains to me on oath that on or near november last he lost a certain boar stag which he has cause to believe and doth believe that John Scipper, Wm Scipper & Solomon Quick in partenership stole the sd hog and also says that he also that he believes he can make apear by good witness that the sd John Scipper, Wm Scipper and Solomon Quick has undoufully taken hogs from other people these are therefore to command you to take the bodys of the above named sd John Scipper, Wm Scipper Sollomon Quick and have them or any one of them before some justice for sd County to [next part obscured in my copy] to any Lawful officer D Henagan "Summon Needham Scipper Patiants rie, John Rye & John Wallis witneses for the State Rachel Wallace" Another page shows the following people bound for their appearance in court in connection with this matter: "Bound Willm Skipper in 50 pounds Barnaby Skipper in 25 pounds for Wm Skippers appearance Do John Skipper in 50 pounds Barnaby Skipper in 25 pounds for John Skippers appearance Do George Cole in 10 pounds Needham Skipper in 10 pounds for their given evidence vs Wm & Jno Skipper Jno Wallace in 10 pounds for Patience Rye given testimony vs. the 2 Skippers do in 10 pounds for Rachel Wallace given testimony vs. the 2 Skippers John Rye bound in 10 pounds for his given evidence vs the 2 Skippers The above Recognizances entered into before Hy W HARRINGTON on the 5th & 7 of Jany 1793" Only one affidavit survives regarding this case, but it is most revealing. "The Deposition of Rachel Wallace. Rachel Wallace being duly sworn declares that above 3 or 4 weeks ago she went with her brother Needham Skipper to her father Barnaby Skipper's corn crib & she saw the Head of a Hog that the said Head was marked with a hole in each Ear & that she thinks the Ears were fresh marked by the Slopes, Some after this Willm Skipper came who was mad & broke out in a passion & said Damn or curse the fool who put the head there & said he did not put it there, that she heard her brother Needham then say, that was the head which Solomon & John said they had eat, by which this Deponent thinks the said Needham intended to signify Solomon Quick and John Skipper. Sworn the 7th Jany 1793. Before Hy Wm Harrington" In the following months, as this trial came to be heard, many of the Skipper men, and John Wallis got into trouble for failing to appear. Needham Skipper assaulted a constable, Peter Cole, who was trying to attach his horse as a penalty for non-appearance in 1794. Barnaby Skipper himself was fined as surety for non-appearance in 1794. It may have been these events which led Barnabus and his family to move into South Carolina. In March and October of 1793, Barnabus sold his 1500 acres of land on Solomon's and Mark's Creek and in 1800, he along with JOhn and Silas Skipper appear in Marlboro County, SC. He never purchased land there and seems to have died before 1810. He may have divided the money he received from his land sale among his children informally during his lifetime, for there is no estate regarding him. Wonderfully vivid material, isn't it? Sounds like Solomon Quick was a sort of rascal. And that he and the Skipper boys were accustomed to carrying on a partnership in crime and it would seem, in fact, that they got away with a good many of their irregularities before getting caught this time. I happen to think, given this evidence, that Elizabeth Quick was probably another daughter of Barnaby Skipper, maybe his eldest. From other criminal actions regarding this family, I would say Barnaby had at least the following kids: John, William, Silas, Needham, probably a younger Barnabus, Rachel Wallace, wife of John, and Patience Rye, probably the wife of Robert Rye, who was accused of assaulting her in RIchmond County, 1801. Barnabus Skipper was certainly in Richmond (Anson) and old enough to have children as far back as the mid 1750's when he took out his first land grants. The name Needham reappears in the Quick family. In fact, take a look at the 1800 Census showing Solomon Quick, Sr.'s household. 1800 Census Solomon Quick 1 male <10 1 female <10 1 male 16/26 1 fe 10/16 1 male 26/44 2 fe 16/26 1 male over 45 2 fe 26/45 If I analyze this carefully and assume that all of the individuals are children of Solomon Quick other than the parents I could come up with a list like this. The oldest children seem to be Burrell, whom later records show to have been born in the 1770's and a daughter. But they seem to be the very oldest, so I would place their births, lets say c.1773 and c. 1775. Then we proceed from there: Burrell Quick b. c. 1773 daughter Quick b. c. 1775 daughter Quick b. c. 1777 daughter Quick b. c. 1779 Solomon Quick Jr. b. c. 1780/84 (since he says he is 40-50 in 1830) daughter Quick b. 1785/1789 Ruth Quick b. c. 1790, according to her tombstone son Quick b. c. 1791/99 If Elizabeth were 16 to 18 at the birth of Burrell, that would place her birth, c. 1755/57, just in keeping with the 1800 census which places her under 45 years of age, probably just under. Who could the last son have been, the one not named in her will? Given the Skipper connection, couldn't it have been Needham Quick, whom the 1850 census shows to have been born c. 1798. There was also a Needham Rye, perhaps a son of Patience Rye, living in Marlboro County at that time. I have recently learned that Barnabus Wallace of Marlboro was suposedly the son of John and RAchel Wallace (c. 1771--2/11/1827), but the person who wrote that seemed to be unaware of the true identity of this Rachel who very well may be the daughter of Barnabus Skipper who made the deposition above--hence the name Barnabus Wallace. And don't forget that Burrell Quick named a son Barnabus Quick, possibly for his grandfather. To me, this is all very exciting and provocative material and I would like any feedback you care to give. A few things about the Skipper family. Apparently, they were notorious for being of mixed blood. Paul Heinegg's book FREE AFRICAN AMERICANS IN NORTH CAROLINA, which I don't really trust in terms of identifying people as black who are probably in fact Indian, mentions these records. He says that a George Skiper was a "chief man of the Nottoway Indian Nation" who sold land in Southampton County, VA in February 1749. In February 1750, a George Skipper purchased 200 acres in Anson County, later Richmond on the NS of the Pee Dee. This George Skipper sold horses to Barnabus Skipper in 1765 and appears to have been the father of Barnabus along with Benjamin and perhaps George, Jr. and Samuel Skipper. This George appears as George Skipper, Sr. in the 1763 tax list of Anson. This would indicate to me that there was also a George Skipper, Jr.--one of the five taxables in the George Skipper, Sr. household. Separate titheables are labeled Barnaba Skipper (our man) and Benjamin Skipper, each with one titheable. The Skippers, especially Barnaby, seem to have been rich in land gained through grants. As I indicated, Barnaby collected about 1500 acres before and during the Revolution. But Bishop Gregg's HISTORY OF THE OLD CHERAWS reveals an unexpected fact concerning the Skippers. Describing the Revolutionary conflict between Tories and Patriots--the desperate and bloody partisan warfare which gripped the Carolina backcountry -- he says: "On the eastern side of the river (the Pee Dee,) near the dividing line between Richmond County, and what is now Marlborough District, lived two young men, named Skipper, of mixed blood, but peaceable and inoffensive. They had taken parol, however, and for no other offence, were seized by the Whigs on both sides of the line and hung. Such a course was well calculated to excite a feeling of bloody retaliation and thus the murderous conflict continued." These have to be representatives of the group of Skippers I was talking about--in fact, I think it may have been George, Jr. and Samuel who were hung. Samuel is known only through a single land grant (1778/79) and George is only suggested by the 1763 tax list. Neither appear in later records. From this and other statements in Gregg's book, it would appear that many of the "Redbones" or peoples of mixed blood of the Pee Dee basin including the Skippers and some of the Brigmans and others, took up the Loyalist cause during the Revolution. Perhaps they did so because they bore grudges against white patriot neighbors who looked down on them and discriminated against them. The Skipper boys took a parole and agreed not to continue their fighting, and Gregg suggested that they were killed more because of their race than because of their history as Tories. Their deaths became a cause celebre among other mixed race peoples and Tories generally and excited another bloody wave of recrimination. In this light, it makes sense what I have heard about the Quicks and other of the more "respected and powerful" of the mixed blood families of the Pee Dee. J.A.W. Thomas said that they were rewarded for loyalty during the Revolution with a special place of authority and leadership in the community. Perhaps this is true because they were the exception, rather than the rule during the Revolution in choosing the winning side. It is true of many Indian peoples, including the Cherokee, and the Iroquois Confederacy, that they felt they would be far better off if the King reduced his rebellious American subjects to obedience. Why shouldn't it be true of the mixed race people on the Pee Dee, in general? A couple more notices are in order before closing. I did look again at Solomon Quick's and Elizabeth Quick's estate packets in Bennettsville. I noticed that the 10 Oct 1807 administration bond for Elizabeth was secured by Burrell Quick and, guess who, John Scipper. Among the accounts due the estate was one from Barnabus Clark--don't know if that is significant. Among the accounts for Elizabeth's estate from 1832 to 1834 by Solomon Quick and right in the middle of recording the amounts given to the two Zilly Quicks (I assume Drusilla, one male and one female from the pronouns used), Aley Quick, Burrell Quick, and Solomon Quick is a record of $1 given to Daniel Odom "for the estate." Could that mean that Daniel Odom was one of the sons-in-law receiving a nominal amount in keeping with the will, which actually leaves each daughter 25 cents? Worth looking into. Whose children were the two Zilly Quicks and Aley Quick? They were grandchildren of Elizabeth, but they don't seem to fall into the family of either of the two boys we know--Burrell and Solomon, Jr. Larry W. Cates

NC. / SC. 2006 - From : <DPULTZ@aol.com> Sent : Friday, July 7, 2006 6:35 AM To : ladysilverdollar1@hotmail.com CC : jackaskipper@yahoo.com, EUZELIA@aol.com Subject : Re: Skippers in SC - Dear Ann, To get a good feel for the locations of the counties in NC, I would suggest that you look up counties here http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/maps/north_carolina_map.html and http://www.rootsweb.com/~nccatawb/countyfm.htm and http://www.rootsweb.com/%7Encgenweb/county.html. The last site is the best, I think. As you can see, Brunswick County is located on the SC border. At one time it was included in New Hanover Co. and Bladen County. New Hanover was huge. Anson County was also included in Bladen County. It is not hard to see how the Skippers moved from Anson County to Marboro Co. (which was just across the border) and Horry Co. in SC and to Brunswick Co. in NC. - I am not including Francis b. about 1641 as the father of George 1 any more. If you look at the dates, it appears that George 1 would be too old to be his son. They may have been siblings or cousins. I have George 1 receiving a land patent in 1668 which would make him at least 20 years old then. (pg. 358 EDWARD GOODSON of Northampton Co. to JAMES TURNER of Isle of Wight Co., Va. 23 Nov. 1748 7 pounds Va. money 400 acres more or less on the south side of Potacasa swamp, joining the mouth of the Spring branch and the swamp, part of a patent to GEORGE SKIPPER 1 May 1668, all houses, orchards, gardens, fences etc. Wit: JOHN SIMPSON, NICHOLAS MONGER Reg. Northampton Co. Nov. Ct. 1748 J. Edwards C. Ct) I also think that the George who was married to Ann Bailey was this George's son. I think that there were George 1 the man with the 1668 land patent, George 2 born about 1685 husband of Mary Bailey, George 3 b. about 1720. This is all theory and not proven but it seems rational.

I don't have much to go on. I have an ancestor whose name I have heard is Margaret Skipper and she was supposed to have been born in Alabama. She married a Coley who was born in N.C. and that is all I have on him. They have a child named John C. Coley. He was b abt. 1836 in Butler Co., Alabama and died Sept. 5, 1920 in Montgomery Co., Texas. He married Mary F. Funderburk and I have a list of their children. I have been searching for something on these two for ages and cannot come up with anything. I am hoping that maybe you can shed a little light on them. Thanks, Betty

Sent to Ann In A Email - Cheraw SC Time Line - A Selected Chronology of Events: Part One 1540: Spanish Explorer Hernando De Soto's men visit Cheraw and leave the first written record of our area. It is thought that the Cofitachequi people lived here on the high bluff over the river. Like other tribes in this part of Carolina, they were a matrilineal society. Unfortunately, this first contact brought an exhange of diseases which had devasting effects on both parties. Around 1700: The Cheraw Indians come to Cheraw. The tribe had come earlier to the Carolinas after being driven out of Virginia by the Iroquois. Their main village was on the present site of the town. The Cheraws were of Sioux extraction, and were an agricultural people. They were more powerful and warlike than the nearby Pee Dees. 1730's: The first settlers come to the Cheraw area. The Welsh Baptist land grant in 1737 has the effect of forcing settlers already in the region to move further up the river. The earliest of these include English settlers, the Ellerbes and Youngs. The first slaves come with some of the settlers. 1730's: Almost all of the Cheraws have left the region and joined forces with the Catawbas. A small pox epidemic in 1738 decimates these tribes. Some of the Cheraws will remain with the Catawbas, others will go to live in the Lumbee River region of North Carolina. 1740's: Thomas Ellerbe opens a water mill near Cheraw. In 1743 James Gillespie moves further up river to Cheraw, and engages in shipping and planting. 1750's: Gillespie and famed patriot Christopher Gadsden conduct a shipping business on the Pee Dee between Cheraw and Charleston. Gadsden has a store near the present Country Club. 1760's: A Planters Society is formed. A French Huguenot, Claudius Pegues comes to the area and settles on the east side of the river near the North Carolina line. Eli and Joseph Kershaw conduct a mercantile business under the name of Eli Kershaw and Company. The Kershaws lay out the original town. Eli Kershaw also owns at least one house (it is painted yellow) in Cheraw and a plantation. Their boundary markers will still be in place in the year 2000. 1760's: Increasing violence from lawless gangs of "robbers and banditti" leads to great frustration. There are no means to bring criminals to justice short of Charleston. Prominent men, who come to be known as Regulators, take the law into their own hands. 1768: St. David' Parish is established. The Anglican Church is the state church in South Carolina, and the established of a parish gives the citizens the right to vote near home, to tax for the poor and sick, bind out orphans and oversee the roads. A church building is to be erected in Cheraw, probably because it is something of an Anglican stronghold. 1769: A Circuit Court Bill establishes the Cheraws Judicial District. There is a great fight over whether the court house will be erected at Cheraw Hill or at Long Bluff (now Society Hill). The commissioners state that "Cheraw Hill is at present, and has been for many years past the most public and the greatest place of trade upon Pedee River." The term "Cheraw HIll" distinguishes the town from the district. 1772: St. David's Church is almost complete and is in use. 1774: The Kershaws were angered when the courthouse was erected at Long Bluff. They put some of their holdings up for auction. Tensions continue to increase between the backcountry, the coastal establishment and the British Crown. 1775: The name Chatham appears for the first time in the Vestry Records of St. David's Church. Cheraw, Cheraw Hill and Chatham will be used interchangeably until 1820. The term was to honor William Pitt, the Earl of Chatham, who was the great English defender of American liberties. May 1776: The Cheraws Grand Jury writes a declaration of independence from England. July 4, 1776: The American Declaration of Independence is signed in Philadelphia. War becomes inevitable. 1776-1779: Charleston falls to the British. Many in this area just wish to be left alone, and the war is slow in coming to the region. A number of men are enlisted with the Whigs, especially Francis Marion's brigade, but a number are Tories. Much of the war is now being fought in the North. The British establish aline of garrisons at Cheraw, Camden, Ninety Six and Augusta. 1780: The war comes to Cheraw with a vengeance. It is a true civil war, sometimes brother against brother. British Major James Wemyss come to Cheraw in May and September, burning and plundering. Major Archibald McArthur and the 71st Regiment use St. David's Church as quarters and a hospital during the summer. The build barracks near the church. A number of soldiers become ill with a fever (probably malaria). Three officers are buried in the church yard. The enlisted men are buried in a common grave. Gen. Gates passes nearby on his way to Camden. Fall 1780: Gen. Harrington moves in with his American troops. SC Gov. John Rutledge moves the government to Cheraw. He will be in and out of Cheraw for the next six months. Jan. 1781: Gen. Nathaniel Greene makes a camp of repose just across the river Gen. Green is now in charge of the American Troops in the South. This hard winter camp is the southern "Valley Forge." He receives news of the great victory at Cowpens with much rejoicing. His army will now move toward Guilford Courthouse, and the Americans will soon have a great victory at Yorktown in Virginia. 1783: The Treaty of Paris finally officially ends the Revolutionary War. Freedom has come with great price to Cheraw. A number of men are dead or maimed, houses have been burned, crops and live stock have been destroyed. There is no longer a British bounty on Indigo, which had been the main money crop in the Cheraws. The economy stagnates for a decade. 1785: The Anglican church is disestablished. St. David's Parish is divided into Chesterfield, Darlington and Marlboro Counties. 1790's: Eli Whitney's cotton gin becomes widely available. This will transform agriculture in the region. Cheraw is a small village of about a dozen homes and several trading houses. 1801: A US Post Office is established in Cheraw. 1810: Cheraw has grown and now has a printing press and school. 1812: Gen. Erasmus Powe gathers volunteers for the War of 1812. 1819: Capt. Moses Rogers (of the famous SS Savannah, the first steamship to cross the Atlantic) brings the first steamboat, the "Pee Dee" to Cheraw. 1820: Cheraw is incorporated on Dec. 23rd, taking the name of Cheraw officially. 1823: Dr. W. C. Ellerbe and Dr. John Lance open a hospital for sick Negroes. The Methodist construct their first church. 1823: The first bridge is built across the Great Pee Dee. A slave named Horace King will learn to build the Towne Lattice Mode trusses that he will later use in building covered bridges in Georgia and Alabama. The town has a pop. of 700, 250 houses, a church, library, academy, 30 storehouses, and two hotels, Moore's and The Cheraw Hotel. 1824: The remaining lots from the Kershaw estate are auctioned off. 1825: Cheraw entertains Gen. Lafayette in Dr. Ellerbe's home which will hereafter be known as the Lafayette House. 1826: The steeple is added to old St. David's Church. 1833: The Merchants Bank is built. (Now First Citizens.) Cheraw will become a major banking center in the next decades. 1835: On Dec. 9th a calamitous fire guts the commercial district of Cheraw. 1837: Every owner of an improved lot within the town is to provide a leather bucket "of the usual size" for each chimney on the premises. Six fire marshals are appointed. 1837: Peter Conlaw Lynch wins the competition to design a market hall. The Market Hall will be used for an Equity Court upstairs and a farmers' market downstairs. The first circus comes to town. The elephants are too heavy and the giraffe too tall to cross the covered bridge so they must swim the river. 1830's: The Baptist and Presbyterians build new churches. Townspeople are trying their hand at growing silk. This does not catch on. There is a severe national depression. A large number of people leave Cheraw for the new cotton lands in Alabama and westward. 1840: St. Peter's Catholic Church is built. A planned effort to plant hardwoods along the streets begins about this time. Supposedly if you are charged with being drunk and disorderly in public your "fine" will be to dig an elm from the forest and plant it in town. These shade trees will greatly contribute to the charm of the town, and be noted by visitors for generations. 1848: Telegraph lines are completed along the old stage coach road. This will become known as the Old Wire Road. 1853: The Cheraw and Darlington Railroad begins operations. 1854: A map is drawn that shows the location of home sites to settle a legal dispute over the boundaries of town. 1858: The Cheraw Town Hall construction begins. Because of their contributions the Masons will use the upstairs and the gentlemen of the Lyceum will have the use of the little brick building on the Town Green. 1850's: By the middle of the 19th century Cheraw is a prosperous town, a regional center of business, education, culture and religion. Cheraw has the largest cotton market between Georgetown and Wilmington, and the Merchants Bank is the largest bank in South Carolina outside of Charleston. War clouds, however, are on the horizon. A new corduroy plank road is built to Wadesboro. 1860: Chesterfield County is the first to call for session from the Union. South Carolina secedes. The resolution to secede is presented by Cheraw attorney John Inglis, Chairman of the Ordinance of Secession Committee. He will also serve as Chancellor of the state courts. He and Henry McIver have an office on Front Street that will be one of the very few commercial buildings to survive the war. The office will be moved to the Town Green in the 1940's. 1861: Cheraw and South Carolina go to war. A company is raised here, and the town is flooded with refugees from the Sea Islands and the lower Pee Dee River. 1865, February: Gen. Hardee brings 10,000 Confederate troops to Cheraw. The Confederates will barely escape Gen. Sherman on March 3rd. They burn the river bridge as they retreat. 1865, March 3rd: Gen. William T. Sherman and 50,000 Union Army soldiers invade Cheraw. Cheraw will play reluctant host to more of his dreaded soldiers than any other place in South Carolina. Outlying plantations and summer homes are burned, but no in town dwellings or churches are destroyed. Valuables are stolen and there is much vandalism. The official headquarters is the Matheson House. Sherman himself stays on McIver Steet. When they leave the town will be destitute, and without food for more than a day or two. Almost the entire business district is destroyed by an accidental Yankee explosion. 1865, April: The War ends. The whole South will be destitute for decades. The slaves are now free. The South, both black and white, will suffer through the Reconstruction period. 1867: The covered bridge is rebuilt. Late 1860's & 70's: Former slaves begin worshipping at their own churches. Wesley United Methodist and Pee Dee Baptist are founded. 1878: Dr. Cornelius Kollock kills an Ivory Billed Woodpecker near Cheraw and presents it to the Charleston Museum. This appears to be the last of these now extinct woodpeckers, but in the 1990's there are rumors of sightings in the Dismal Swamp in Virginia. 1881: Coulter Memorial Academy is founded to educate the freedmen. Second Presbyterian Church is also founded. 1884: There are two steam powered cotton gins, a saw mill and 30 stores. Capt. Bogan Cash is killed in a shoot out with a Camden posse after killing a Cheraw policeman. His father had killed a prominent Camden man, Col. Shannon, in a duel a few years before. 1886: The Charleston earthquake damages Cheraw buildings and causes great panic. Earthquake rods to strenghen weakened structures will still be in place at the turn of the next millennium. 1895: Cheraw has a population of 1,000. South Carolina has a new constitution. Cheravian Henry McIver is Chief Justice of the South Carolina Supreme Court. 1896: The Cheraw Chronicle is founded. A number of local newspapers preceded it. 1898: One of the old rail lines becomes part of the new Atlantic Coast Line Railroad. 1899: It is said that the temperature drops to 9 degrees below zero, and the Pee Dee River freezes. Some Cheravians walk across the river on the ice. 1900-1920: Prosperity has finally returned. Many new brick businesses are built. Baseball is a major pastime for everyone, and there is horse racing at Carolina Park. Market Street becomes the main commercial area. Front Street and, even earlier, "Yankee Hill" on the river had played this role. 1900: Telephone service comes to Cheraw. 54 customers sign up by 1904. 1903: Electricity come to town. The Town Hall and Market Hall are wired for power. By 1905: The timbering industry is sweeping the South. Cheraw Sash and Door Company (1907) becomes the first of a number of lumber mills in Cheraw. Other industries include a cottonseed oil mill and a new brick works. 1907: The first automobile is sighted in Cheraw. 1908: The Town Council removes the trees in the center of the streets to put in water and sewer lines. The loss of the trees brings on a big political fight. The ladies, who cannot vote, are furious. The Civic League manages to save the trees on Third Street and a few isolated spots. These trees will continue to add to the beauty of Cheraw. Cheravians will continue to love their trees, and Cheraw will become the first town in South Carolina to be named a "Tree City USA." 1908: The old covered bridge goes down in a raging flood. The town will be cut off from the world for days. This flood of Aug. 26-30th will be the most extensive on record in South Carolina up until the year 2000. 1911: The "Big Blow" comes through town, felling trees and destroying Pee Dee Baptist Church. 1916: Cheraw gets its first fire truck. 1917: Famed Jazz King Dizzy Gillespie is born on Huger Street. 1918: Cheraw Cotton Mills (now Yarn Mills) is established.

The Cheraw Country Club Golf Course opens its first nine holes. 1931: US Highway #1 is completed in Cheraw. A grand celebration of this first national highway is held in Cheraw to mark the event. Cheraw has always been an important stop for travelers, and the highway brings new gas stations and motels to town. 1934: Citizens of Cheraw collect funds to purchase what will become South Caorlina's first state park.

****Matuce/Mattuce/Matuse Surname*****Misc. Note and email to ann - From : Donna Walker <ddw1025@gmail.com> Sent : Saturday, February 25, 2006 2:37 AM To : ladysilverdollar1@hotmail.com Subject : wm matuse - i cannot believe this!!! I tried to send this email from my regular aol account and it said i had exceeded the rate limit for sending emails to the same account. (abuse) i guess all the census pages i sent you, i don't know, i've never had this happen before. so i'm going to send it from another account i don't usually use. Hi Ann, - That is probably your Wm. matuse on the 1860 darlington census. The Martha mattuce he's living with in 1860 is most likely the patsy mattuce on the 1850 census. Patsy is nickname for Martha. So I would say some of the children on the 1860 with Martha are probably illegitimate. Talbert is listed as nephew to harriet gilbert (see below) on the 1880 census, so I'm sure that is the same harriet on the 1850 census with patsy & milly. Unless they had a brother who was the father of talbert and the other children and he died?. - Because of the age difference between wm. & edney? on the 1860 census and wm. not being listed on the 1850 census with the mattuce family, I would think that the wm. in st. tammany in 1850 is worth checking out. Maybe a male mattuce left sc in th 1830s or 40s and then died in Louisiana. Wm. was brought back to sc to live with family here. There are two males on the early darlington census. - I found a Charles Metuce, age 28 b. sc, on the 1850 pike co, al census. I found the family there in 1870 as mathews but have not had any luck after that. Here's a couple of links I found on charles. http://www.alabama37th.com/bios-loos-mcmur.htm and http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Bluffs/3010/gene-idx.htm - Note: My Annie Outlaw married a William Billy Matuse, she is buried in the Savannah Church in Lee County SC.*****


Email To Ann - Glad I was helpful. The best to you. Have you communicated with Johnny Andrews of the Hartsville Research Library in Hartsville, SC? He would probably have some ideas for your research in South Carolina. Steven Bailey 15 june 2006.

I hope all of this will help others looking for their Skipper ancestors. Ann - ladysilverdollar1@hotmail.com
