Thomas C. Withers Sr.


Kentucky Counties

General Stonewall Jackson

Letter dated 02/12/1978
Isabella S. Strouder of Long Beach, CA
Mrs of Nepoleon, MO had found our Thomas left eastern KY for Christian, Co. Ky, he died there in 1835 with Will.. Proved our Thomas did not marry Patty Harris.
Will, Bible and Census does prove this statement.BIBLE
IGI- files shows Elizabeth's father's cousin Jacob was living in Bourben Co., KY before Thomas and Elizabeth were married.. Then it looks as if they moved over to Jassamine Co., KY Jacob

James ..b.. abt. 1745 .. Fauquier Co., VA ..d.. 11/24/1849 Lincoln Co., KY..m.. 1768 Elizabeth Rosser son Thomas died Woodford Co., Ky
Why was his son Thomas living in Woodford Co???, when his brother John was in Lincoln Co., Mid State!!!.. reference
From all of the circumstantial evidence the two Thomas are used as one Thomas when there are two with fathers and mothers with common names.. But, the mothers are: Elizabeth Rosser and Elizabeth Mauzey..
James Withers and Elizabeth Rosser's son Thomas married Patty Harris and probably lived in Lincoln or Harding Co.. James's step grandmother was married to William Harris in Fauquier Co., VA
James Withers and Elizabeth Rosser's son William had a son named Abijah and Thomas/Elizabeth Harris named their son Abijah, try to find another named Abijah, not even in Bonham do you find Abijah and 60% of their children end in (iah) You do find it in Gardner, James (2) wife.. reference

Martin Vincent Hammersmith of Chino, CA used Patty for his DAR entrance, Thomas and Patty lived in Mid KY and had four children, and both died in the early 1830's, lived in the County they first married, and was the son of a Rev War Vet..(Strouder Letter)
Their children do not match our bible .. reference .. Our Thomas

Louise Surmon believes, as with other researches, Reubin Withers to be the son of Thomas Withers and Elizabeth Bonham..
The Dunn Bible has Thomas Withers and Elizabeth Bonham the parents of Reuben Withers
It is my opinion that our Thomas and Elizabeth left VA for Woodford Co., KY and left Reuben in VA with the Grandparents..(2nd) son Samuel was born in Woodford Co., KY. reference Also Christopher C. Withers, son of Thomas C. Withers II, added or amended the bible and may have forgotten Reuben, he also made some errors on dates..

Will book H page 363 name Thomas Withers Woodford Co. KY
Will book H page 362: NAME Christopher Weathers
The probability is Thomas stilled owned land in Woodford Co. KY and for the title of the land to be transferred a copy of the will is on file..
Christopher and Abigail were Excutors of Thomas's Will, and it is Will book H page 362. And the only heirs are the children of Abigail .. probated..02/02/1835.. Christian Co.
Woodford Co. is probably bogus information !!

Thomas is living in Woodford County and Elizabeth dies leaving him 9 Children of which Minor is less than a month old. What does he do?
I believe, Thomas went to his family in Clark, Co where his couisn John James Winn resides ..

This information I believe is in correct, wrong parents..
IGI-Isaac Crutcher WITHERS Birth: 3 Oct 1825 Woodford, Kentucky
Hardin Co., KY is where the family lived..
John and Thomas Withers appearing in Scott Co., 1810 could be our Thomas and brother John.. Thomas married in Clark Co., that yr.. But, I do not have any information as to just when Thomas removed to Clark, maybe just the children stayed there in Clark Co...
From the discription of the property, (May 1786 Patented 1200 acres on the Kentucky River and Rough Run in Woodford Co., Ky.) (I believe the Kentucky River is in Franklin the west of Scott Co. and throurgh the west side of Woodford Co.) Thomas only recieved 300 acres..
Grand Father Thomas's Land Before the formation of other Co.s .. The KY River Startes in Lincoln runs through Jassamine, Woodford Etc..
15 May 1780 he patented 804 acres on the Kentucky River in Jefferson and Lincoln Co., Ky. 16 Mar 1781 he patented another 804 acres on Kentucky River in Jefferson Co., Ky. Remarks: The Jefferson Property probably ended up in Franklin Co.

James :Married Elizabeth ... at an early age (Family name unknown)
24 Mar 1778 Appointed Second Lieutenant
8 Mar 1780 Sold the 130 acres in Fauquier Co., Va.
May 1786 Patented 1200 acres on the Kentucky River and Rough Run in Woodford Co., Ky. Between his grandfather's property
Made his will in Fauquier Co., Va...John Exec. Will 05/04/1791 John had moved to Woodford Co. KY
Will was probated in Fauquier Co., Va.
James and Elizabeth ... Withers lived in Fauquier Co., Va. , on 130 acres of land given to James by his father, Thomas Withers (II)
During the Revolution War James Withers served in the Fauquier County Militia.
According to the history of the Payne family James was a Doctor of medicine.

This is one person's Geneolgy.. I disagree with this, because Dr. James married Elizabeth Mauzy!!!!James

He married (1) MARY ANNA MORRISON, daughter of ROBERT MORRISON and MARY GRAHAM. He married (2) ELEANOR JUNKIN, daughter of REV. DOCTOR JUNKIN.

"Stonewall" Jackson, (1824-63), American soldier, considered by military authorities an outstanding leader, a skilled tactician, and one of the ablest Confederate commanders. Jackson was born Thomas Jonathan Jackson on January 21, 1824, in Clarksburg, Virginia (now in West Virginia), and was educated at the U.S. Military Academy. Following his graduation (1846) from West Point he participated in the Mexican War until 1848. He became an instructor at the Virginia Military Institute (VMI) in 1851, and the next year he resigned from the army. On the outbreak of the American Civil War in 1861, he left VMI to enter the Confederate army. He was immediately commissioned a colonel and within months was given the rank of brigadier general. Jackson earned his popular nickname at the First Battle of Bull Run (1861), where his troops stood against the Union forces "like a stone wall," according to a colleague, Brig. General Barnard E. Bee. While commanding his troops, the so-called Stonewall Brigade, during a campaign in the Shenandoah Valley in the spring of 1862, Jackson executed a remarkable tactical maneuver against three Union armies then menacing Richmond. After driving back the army of General Nathaniel Prentiss Banks (1816-94), which was advancing from the north, Jackson turned and defeated the armies threatening to attack his rear ranks from the east and west. Jackson subsequently took part, with General Robert E. Lee, in the defeat of General George McClellan in the Seven Days' Battle at Richmond. In August 1862, Jackson defeated the army of General John Pope, thus ensuring a Confederate victory at the Second Battle of Bull Run. Jackson then crossed the Potomac into Maryland with Lee, who ordered him to capture Harpers Ferry. His task accomplished in September 1862, Jackson rushed north to Antietam Creek to aid Lee, who was under attack by an overwhelming Union force. Jackson commanded the right wing of the victorious Confederate army at Fredericksburg in December 1862. During the Rappahannock campaign in Virginia the following spring, by launching a surprise attack on the rear columns of the Union army, Jackson prevented the threatened encirclement of the Confederate forces by the troops of General Joseph Hooker. On May 2, 1863, while leading his forces at Chancellorsville, Jackson was accidentally shot and fatally wounded by his own men. "Jackson, Stonewall," Microsoft(R) Encarta(R) 96 Encyclopedia.

Below are the names of over 650 ancestors extracted from a "Year Book of the Society of Indiana Pioneers". The book gives the place and year of birth and place of settlement in Indiana prior to 1850 for most of the persons listed. Many of the women are listed by what appears to be their married name. A word search for the maiden name may be helpful. About two-thirds of the book has been indexed.
