Vernon-Bros. Bio'd 1881-by Gilbert Cope
Posted by: David C. Cope (ID *****8844) Date: July 23, 2003 at 18:50:23
  of 1839

Hi List, I tought I should let you know that Thomas Vernon who marr. Elizabeth ?, Robert Vernon who marr. Elinor Minshall and Randall Vernon who marr. Sarah have bio-sketches pages 754-755 in the book " History of Chester CO PA & Bio-Sketches by Futhy & Cope in 1881. Gilbert Cope did alot of Quaker immigrant research and families like the Job, Worth, Cope, Buffington, Ring, Cloud, Pyle are just some of the families covered in this book. Iam interested in the Vernons' found in the Lunenburg CO VA tax listings 1748-1752. it seems there are alot of former Quakers showing up in these tax lists.
On page 775-776 is the Worth family and shows jonathan Vernon marr. 1742 to Rebecca Worth b) 4.23.1723 and Gilbert Cope says this family went to VA. Rebecca Worth's brother Samuel Worth b) 1718 marr. Elizabeth Carter, Lydia Worth a sister of Rebecca and Samuel marr. George Carter. The Carter parents are George Carter & Elizabeth ( Tull ? ) who are at the wedding of John COPE to Charity Jefferis 30 Nov 1721 Bradford, Chester CO PA. Also at this wedding is Nathaniel Ring who marr. Lydia Vernon 4.6.1728 dau. of Thomas Vernon & Lydia Ralfe marr. 8.13.1702 -per Gilbert Cope. All these Quakers are related or connected. Nathaniel Ring's mother Elizabeth married George Strode after 1714 and George Strdoe is at the Cope wedding. I believe George Strode is the uncle of Martha Strode who marr. Morgan Bryan and this couple are the grd-par's of Rebecca Bryan who marr. Daniel Boone. On the Lunenburg CO VA tax listings are the Boone related Calloways and VanBibbers 1748-1752.
I have also found in Gilbert Cope'sd book the Job family who marr. the Quaker McKay-McCoys of MD to Augusta CO VA.
The Book by Gilbert Cope has 800 pages of Quaker info and cost $105.00 from the Higginson book company found on the internet. My Cope's are related to the Lunenburg CO VA Spurlocks and MD Prathers 1748-1752.
