|101|| KEENEY & YOCUM TIES GO FROM SOUTH POTOMiAC TO GREENBRIER, KENTUCKY AND EAST TENNESSEE .|
KEENEY researchers in Oregon, Iowa, Missouri, Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia take note:
The colonial ties between the KEENEY and Yocum families suggest an ever-increasing closeness. It is undisputed that Peter Keeney was probably an in-law in the Matthias Yocum family, witnessed the marriage of his son, and was present at his death. It has just been revealed that Peter's brother, John Jonathan, accompanied Michael Yocum as they claimed grants in North Carolina in an area that soon became the Tennessee county of Greene, later divided into Jefferson and Cocke counties. Numerous'records show this connection.
EARLY KEENEY -YOCUM TIES.
On a 26 April 1745 order by the Council of Virginia 100,000 acres of land in the Greenbrier valley were offered to settlers who would settle and cultivate the land, with a limit of 1,000 acres per grant. Virginia land records show that JOHN KEE1'l"EY (450 acres), Felty Yocum (480 acres), Frederick See (480 acres), Matthew Yocum (330 acres) and George See (360 acres) received grants in 1750 and 1751. The Yocums and Sees were closely related by marriage.
In 1750 practically all of westem Virginia and West Virginia were in Augusta county. This is important to remember, as many counties (Bedford, Botetourt, Hampshire, Hardy, Greenbrier eta!) were formed and residents changed counties·without moving away. Dr Thomas Walker, returning from an exploratory trip·into the Kentucky region in 1750 noted that several families had already settled in the Greenbrier area of Muddy Creek and Big Levels. The French & Indian War against English expansion broke out in 1754 and continued to 1761, with 60 Shawnee warriors making havoc of the new settlers, including the destruction of a new fort. However, the deadly blow by the Shawnees came in the summer of 1765. Contradictory
reports estimate that 9 to 12 prople were killed and seven taken prisoner. For about 45 days 59 terrified inhabitants huddlesd inside the Muddv Creek outpost awaiting the fall of the tomahawk or scalping knife. Captain John Lewis. who was 45 miles away along the Jackson River, came to their relief. finding on arrival that the enemy had moved two days earlier. Virginia Gov Dinwiddie called the incident "a shameful panic" after learning that the settlers had abandoned their homes, left crops in the field, losing everything they had worked for. A Mrs F Keeney, Frederick Yocum and Felty Yocum had a lost their lives in the uprising. JOHN KEENEY was a member of Dickinson's Company of Rangers in 1756 and 1757. From where had he come? Augusta court records of August 1749 listed him as defendent in a lawsuit with James Rutredge and listed his residence as South Branch. South Branch was in the HampshirelHardy county where the Yocums and Sees had lived. Apparently JOHN KEENEY also lived there for a time and came along to Muddy Creek, living adjacent to his Yokum neighbors. First settlers of Hardy and Grant counties (1735-1750) included Frederick See, George See and Matthias Yocum, living in the Mill Creek area, close to Maysville in present day Grant County. Keeney and Yocum family court records were often listed in Bedford County, the nearest courthouse. Actually most of their activities took place in Botetourt County, founded in 1769. Greenbrier County was founded from Botetourt County in 1780. Greenbrier landowners listed in 1780 included John Keeney, Michael Keeney, Gcorge See, Michael See and George Yocum. Matthias Yocum and Peter Keene had departed the year before from their Auhur's Bortom homes near Fort Lewis in the Roanoke river valley. An August 9. 1755 Augusta court record lists the transfer of 261 acres on the north side of the Roanoke above Arthur' Bottom from James Campooll to Matthias Yocum..
SETTLEMENTS AFTER INDIAN RAIDS.
In I761 Frederick See and Felty Yocum settled on Muddy Creek, the scene of recent atrocities. During the calm belween 1764 and 1774 numerous settlers found their back to the Greenbrier region, mostly in the year 1769. There were sporadic Indian attacks; in 1780 they killed Thomas Griffith and took his son prisoner. The boy was rescued. Arbuckle's Fort became the rendevous point in 1774, when armies were firming for the showddown with the Shawness in the Battle of Point Pleasant.
Kegler's History Of the Virginia Frontier lists many families that moved from 1748 to 1757. Matthias Yocum is listed with a group of 18 located in the lower end (Roanoke area) of Augusta County. Wolves were numerous in this settlement Waddell's Annual says that the promise of a reward netted 256 wolf heads in 1751.
KEENEYS & YOCUMS TO NORTH CAROLINA & TENNESSEEE.
During the American Revolution John Jonathan Keeney (cl750-c1845) was active on the frontier, with Michael, Thomas and David Keeney offering supplies. For this Jonathan received a 67 acre grant in 1788 on the north side of the French Broad River in Orcene Co TN (earlier a part of North Carolina). Earlier, in 1782. Peter Keeney of Fort Lewis received a grant for land in Fayette Co KY, the grant being registered in Botetourt County. Peter had already accompanied Matthias Yocum to Kentucky). From the Draper Manuscripts we read that Matthias Yocum (1705-1783) came to Kenyucky in the fall of 1779 and settled with his family at Yokum's Station in 1780. His wife, Elizabeth See (b.5-8-1730 at Telnechocken Creek, Berks Co PA died in KY 11-14·1780). Their large family lists lots of sons, although there were daughters. They were listed in the HlSTORY OF HARDY COUNTY as follows: Jesse Yocum 12-2-1756 m. Ann Boyles, Elizabeth 1760, George Washington 12-3-1763, J Amelia 1764 m. James Ray c 1781 in KY, Jacob 1767, Matthias Jr 1771, James B 1772, Solomon 1773 d.l0-26-I850 in Denton TX, Isaac 1777 at Fort Harness (now Moorefield WV). The parents of Matthias Yocum were Francis Jochem (b. 1678 in New Amsterdam NY, d.I751 in Hampshire Co VA) & Millie Felty (b. 1682 ·atNew Amsterdam). His wife Elinor See was a daughter of George Ludwig Zeh (b.1680 in Ruhlsheim Germany, d. 24 Apr 1752 in Augusta Co VA).
In 1738 the Yocum, See, Stump and Harness families moved to the South Branch of the Potomac, settling at Mike's Ford, near present day
Moorefoeld, then in Hampshire County. As already stated, under the inLafayette 1745 order of the Virginia Council, many of them claimed land along the Greenbrier River, and along with John Keeney were the first families to apply. During the next decades numerous land transactions took place as listed in Bedford Co Va and Lincoln Co (later KY). The Botetourt County Index of Tithables 1770-1777 listed Conrad Yocum 3, George Yocum 6, Hy Yocum 1, Jolm Yocum 2, Matthias Yocum 2. On 5 October 1780 George Yocum was married to Isabella Taylor in Bedford Co, with Peter Keeney as witness. Between 1770 and 1790 Matthias Yocum of Mercer Co KY purchased land from Thomas Burton and wife in Washington (later Greene) Co TN), North Carolina, where the Keeneys were also moving. No doubt this was for son Michael Yocum and wife Ann Boyle (d/o Alexander Boyle who had lived in Bedford Co from 1762 to 1784. In 1775 Charles McGlothltn conveyed 55 shillings to Michael Yocum for land along the Little Otter.
Bedford County Michael was a witness in the trilal of John Downing. In 1785 they moved to Greene Co NC (which became Tennessee). Priscilla Yocum (b.l773), Michael's daughter, married Fredenck Mayberry in 1790. Thus the close allIances of these two families, all the way from the South Branch in the 1740s to the Greenbrier Valley to North Carolina and Telmessee was crystal clear. In 1791 Jefferson Co TN was formed from Greene. In 1784 the sons of John Keeney and their families fill the records of the Big Pigeon Baptist Church in Cocke Co during the next decade. John Keenry and Michael Yocum served together on the Court of Pleas in Jefferson County in 1798. It is doubtful that the families had moved but the county boundaries were no longer the same. The tax list of Knox Co TN. 1799 listed Jacob, Michael and Solomon Yocum. Several Keeneys were dismissed from Big Pigeon Baptist Church in 1799. Soon after by 1803 the Keeneys scattered - Jolm Jonathan to Indiana, David and Thomas to Missouri, James (killed in War of 1812), Joseph to what became Anderson County TN. Yocum families scattered to Missori, Arkansas and Texas.
Today one finds both families in almost every state. Al Capp made the Yocum name a household word with his Li'l Abner comic strip.

|109|| Mans Andersson had arrived in New Sweden on the second voyage of the"Kalmar Nyckel" in 1640. In 1644, he was a servant of the company, planting tobacco at Christina, but had earned status of a freeman by1648. He established his plantation, which he called Silleryd or theSalted Herring, in a section known as "Finland", the area between Marcus Hook and Chester (the called Upland) in present Pennsylvania. In December 1656 "Moens andriesen" was named tobacco inspector by the Dutch and a 1660 deed makes mention of the land of "Mannis Andries" at the second hook above the fort (Paerden Hook or Swanwyck). By1661 he owned a plantaion north of the Cristina River on the Brandywine River, as is shown by later litigation involving this land. In 1661 Mans Andersson emigrated to Maryland with his wife and six children and on 25 Apr 1662 there was surveyed for him a 150-acre tract called "Mountsfield" near the mouth of the Elk River, on theSoutheast side. On 6 June 1874, Mountz Anderson, a native of Sweedland, was naturalized by the Maryland government. He was still living when he gave a deposition on 25 June 1677/8 relating to his former Brandywine River property, but no will or probate record for him has been found. In 1707, "Mountzfield" was occupied by Christopher Mountz. Christopher Mountz presumed to be a son or grandson of Mans Andersson. Christopher had a son, born 18 Oct 1708, who was christened as Christopher Mounce Anderson.|

|115||Martha Elizabeth Castleberry m. Daniel Lewis and had at least 2 children Minerva and Mary Jane Lewis. There is a 3rd child that was born in 1855 about two years before Martha married Daniel and I believe it was a child of Daniel's by a previous marriage. Martha appears on the 1860 census in Coosa Co., AL with Daniel and the two girls Minerva and Mary Jane Lewis. Daniel died from disease while serving in the Confederate Army in Fair Ground hospital # 1, Atlanta, GA, Nov. 3, 1862. Martha filed documents to get the pay due Daniel in 1862 and is not seen again on census reports. There is a Martha Lewis living in GA on the 1870 census but she is with a different Castleberry family. The estate of Abel Lewis, Martha's father in law is revealing since Martha is not the guardian of her children and two different guardians are appointed one for each girl and the third child does not receive form the estate in the final disbursement. I believe Martha and Minerva died and the two living children of Daniel Loveda and Mary Jane were left to receive in the estate. Martha I am sure is in the same cemetery with her parents since her husband was buried in Atlanta.||Castleberry, Martha Elizabeth (I2930)

|147|| Nancy "Anne" Winstead was born about 1757 in Edgecombe County, NC one of 6 known surviving children (4 boys/6 girls) born to farmers Joseph Winstead (ca. 1725-abt 1788) and his wife, Ann, who had removed from Northumberland Co, VA in the early 1750's settling in the area of present-day Nash County. She was the paternal grandchild of Samuel Winstead II (ca. 1701-1773); and was a direct descendant of this family's patriarch, Daniel Winstead (ca. 1647-1671) of Chichester, England, who settled in Virginia Colonies in Lancaster County. Anne was about 22 years old when she married John C. Cockrell, Sr., originally from Virginia, who had settled in Nash County, NC. The couple would become parents to 7 known children:|
* Joseph Jacob Cockrell (ca. 1780-1819)
* Elizabeth "Betsy" Cockrell (1783-1846)
* John C. Cockrell, Jr. (1790-1866)
* Archibald "Baldy" Cockrell (ca. 1796-aft 1850)
* Vincent Cockrell (ca. 1795-aft 1850)
* Nancy Cockrell (bef 1800)
* Samuel Cockrell (bef 1809)
Anne was widowed in 1809 when her husband of 30 years died at about age 59. She remained in Nash County until she removed with her son, John C. Cockrell, Jr., to Greene County, AL in about 1822. Ann was about 65 when she made the rugged journey by wagon from North Carolina to Alabama, traveling with a group of several families emigrating from Nash County. Known surviving children (4 boys/6 girls) born to farmers Joseph Winstead (ca. 1725-abt 1788) and his wife, Ann, who had removed from Northumberland Co, VA in the early 1750's settling in the area of present-day Nash County. She was the paternal grandchild of Samuel Winstead II (ca. 1701-1773); and was a direct descendant of this family's patriarch, Daniel Winstead (ca. 1647-1671) of Chichester, England, who settled in Virginia Colonies in Lancaster County. Anne died in Greene County, AL in 1837 when she was about 80 years old.
Wife Anne named in Johns will which was dated 20 March 1809. Named in her father's Will dated 1794, Nash County, North Carolina and named "Cockrell". 1815 Nov 19, Nash Co., NC. Rights in the estate of Samuel Winstead 1815 Nov 19, Nash Co., NC. Sale, named as widow of John Cockrell. Birth date of Nancy Anne Winstead calculated from age at death. 1825 Oct 11, Nash Co., NC. Nancy & Vincent Cockrell jointly sold Green Eastman 297 acres on the Waters of the Blumby. Nash County, NC. Deeds, Nov. Term, pg 562. (Deed given to me by Onnie Cockrell-Mar. 1996) 1825 Oct 11, Nash Co., NC. Nancy & John Cockrell jointly sold Hilliard Horn 343 acres of land laying on the North side of the Blumby. Nash County, NC. Deeds, Nov. Term, pg 563(?). Together these two sales equal the amount of acreage, 640 acres, contained in a 1780 grant to John Cockrells of land laying on Bloomery Swamp adjoining John Eastman. (Deed given to me by Onnie Cockrell, Mar. 1996) This proves that Nancy Ann Winstead Cockrell (mother) was still alive in 1825.

|148|| Nancy was the first wife of John Hoover and was the mother of his sons, Matthias Wesley Hoover, and Samuel Hoover. She apparently died sometime between Samuel's birth in 1803 and sometime before 1819, as John's third son, Charles L. Hoover, was born in Bedford County, Tennessee, in 1820, his mother's name being a mystery since the early Bedford County Marriage Records were destroyed and there was no record in the family. Since nearly all of the tombstones in this early-day cemetery are roughly-hewn field stones, with no inscriptions, we can only guess that Nancy is buried here but it's definitely safe to say that if she isn't, she was undoubtedly buried in a section of "Hoover's Gap".|
John & Nancy's marriage record. Entry or license number 609. Record number 544 shows that Mary Sutton & Charles Lewen were married JUL-28-1798, also in Greene County, by Daniel Kennedy who also performed the marriage of Samuel Sutton & Sarah Hice on FEB-11-1800 (Marriage Record Number 651). John & Nancy named their first son, Matthias, after John's father. Their second son was named Samuel. I strongly suspect that the Samuel Sutton who married Sarah Hice was a brother of Nancy Sutton, and that Mary was their sister. Ancestry.com shows that Samuel Sutton named one of his sons "Jacob Hoover Sutton".
