Josiah Rucks-Rev War Patriot

Posted on November 11, 2009 at 3:00pm 0 Comments

My GGG Grandfather Josiah Rucks, born in Chesterfield Co., VA in 1759 and died and buried in Smith Co., TN in 1836, fought with two of his brothers in the American Revolutionary War. He was given title to land in Smith Co., TN where he settled and formed a Baptist Church at Knob Springs. He is buried on what was his estate at Smith Co., TN. His headstone reads "A Rev War Soldier". At one time the DAR accepted this as proof of his service, but this is no longer true. I have been trying to find… Continue

Oh and your branch has at least one celeb descendant. Ironically I was trying to figure out my link to her yesterday as well. But basically Candace Bergen is your 9th cousin!

Hey! I figured out our Howell's! Our Howell's are of 2 branch's. Yours is deemed the Southern Branch while mine is the Southhampton, NY branch. But they're the same family. Mary Howell's parents were John Howell and Mary Lane. The confusion for some lies with the fact that there are 2 Lt John Howell's. But yours settled in Virginia while mine settled in NY. But as I said. Still related. Mary Howell and Edward Howell were aproximatly 3rd cousins give or take. So yep. We're related! Oh and the Howell's are descended from royalty. I've been looking on all the Howell trees and thru the books (yours is of course in a book on the southern line that came out in 1930) and they all basically say the same thing. The Howell's descend from Hywel Dha, king of Wales in the 10th century. I just haven't figured out WHICH of his kids that our line is from. But I already have him on my tree as Im descended from him on my mom's side. The Howell side is my dad's side. *lol* They are also from the Plantagenet royals.

Might look into info on the forts in that Cairo area..... * Villa Ridge
* Camp McClernand
* Camp Defiance [also known as Fort Defiance]
They may have been at one of them.

There are quite a few on Ancestry and want to make sure I get the right one.

His name is written in the document. Because the writing is bad you really have to look for it.

Hi Beverly,
You Wrote "I am looking for any information on Samuel Jemison (b. 1780 d. 1871) of Cookstown, County, Tyrone, married to Sara McComb (b. 1787 d. 1849). They had a farm called Agenhtarhn Farm. They raised seven children: Samuel and William (twins), James, Eliza, Thomas, Joseph, and Sara. Samuel, James Thomas, William, and Sara all left Ireland and went to America 1830-1840). Eliza and Joseph stayed in County Tyrone and raised families there. This is as far back as I have been able to trace this part of my family. I would appreciate any suggestions on where I might do some more researching to get some more information."
May I recommend that you look at possible variations of the Jemison surname.
For example within in my One Name Study I have the following;
John Jameson born about 1825 Married Anne Grimason 3 Dec 1846 at Mullavilly, Armagh, Ireland.

Mary Jane Jameson born about 1838 at Drumnakelly, Armagh, Ireland Married Henry Grimason 7 Jan 1853 at Kilmore, Armagh, Ireland.

Dorthea Jamieson born 13 Jun 1920 USA, Married Samuel John Grimason about 1940, died 27 Dec 1977 at Haworth, New Jersey, USA

Margaret Jamieson living Married William John Grimason of Belfast, Antrim Ireland.
