The Genesis Chart

The Middle East through the eyes of the Ancien...Image via WikipediaThe Genesis Chart
by Teresa Carr
I put together this chart a couple of years ago. It is a genealogy chart that comes from the Bible. I'm fascinated by the Bible, ancient history, and genealogy. This is a never ending project to link descendants to their ancient ancestors. I don't know if anyone has ever gotten that far, but our link is to the past from the beginning of time and through Noah and his three sons and their wives. It is through Noah's three sons is where mankind on earth derived from. This chart is from the beginning of creation from Adam to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Happy Hunting!
Key Reference: I Chronicles 1:1-31
Beginning with Adam, Seth, Enosh, Cainan, Mahalalel, Jared, Enoch (walked with God and was not because God took him, also mentioned in the Book of Jude in the New Testament), Methuselah, Lamech, and Noah.
These are the generations of Noah and his three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
Japheth, son of Noah and ancestor of the European nations and Asia Minor (Indo-European), sons: Gomer (Germany, some authorities say Turkey), Magog (Prince of Rosh, Russia), Madai (Medes, Media an ancient kingdom between the Tigris and the Caspian seas. These are the present day Kurds.), Javan (islands of Crete and lands surrounding the Mediterranean around Ionian or Greece), Tubal (Russia), Meshech (Russia), Tiras (Tiracians, people of Tiras, recording their name as the Tursha or Tarusha. Herodotus, 425 BC Greek historian, wrote of the Thracian people, and referred to as Trajans by the historian Dio Cassius. Thracian lands stretched from southwestern Europe to Asia Minor, a vast area historically known as Thracia.The historical Thracian genealogical tree counts over 200 tribes which had several names, according to their specific regions.  Some of their tribal names were Trajans, Etruscans, Dacians, Luwians, Ramantes, Pelasgians, Besins, Odrisi, Serdoi, Maidoi and Dentheletoi.  The Trajans (Trojans) founded the city of Troy which existed approximately 2400 years (about 1900 BC to 500 AD), which was destroyed and rebuilt several times.  Thousands of Trojan warriors left the city of Troy during the 11th century BC.  They came north and captured land along the banks of the river Don (southwestern Russia), a major trade route.  The locals named the Trojan conquerors the "Aes," meaning "Iron People," for their superior weaponry.  The tribes of Trojan Aes would eventually move north, settling in present-day Scandinavia.  The Aes or Aesar (plural), subsequently became known as the Svear, and then Swedes.  Historians refer to the Aes people as "Thraco-Cimmerians" due to their Trojan ancestry.  Other tribes of Thracians remained a culture in Asia Minor and southern Europe until the 5th century AD.  Many present-day Bulgarians claim to be direct descendants of ancient Thracians, different from the Slavs who arrived that region in the 6th century AD. The name Tiras perpetuated through different languages, as in this list of names from Noah to the present-day Swedes over a period of 4,000 years.).(see Ezekiel 38, KJV)
Sons of Gomer (continued through the names of Gamir, Gimmer, Gomeria, Gotarna and Goth. The Assyrians in the 7th century referred to them as the Gimirraya.  Other names used throughout history include Gimmerai, Crimea, Chomari, Cimmer, Cimmerian.  Cimmerians populated areas of the north of the Caucasus & Black Sea in southern Russia.): Ashkenaz (Turkic-Mongol, where the name Ashkenazi Jews, Aryan Turkish tribes, were taken and the name Nazi is derived from. This was where the Khazars descended from this line. This war-like tribe founded the Khazarian Empire became the major power in ancient Eastern Europe and converted to Judaism in 740 A.D. In World War II during Hitler’s regime, some of his Nazi officers were of Jewish descent. Hitler referred to the Germanic people as the Aryan race.), Diphath (Riphath, father of the Paphlagonians, which were anciently called Riphataei, the Arimphaei of Pliny, and the Riphaeans of Mela, who inhabited near the Riphaean mountains), Togarmah (Turkey, north of Judea, see Ezekiel 38:6 his posterity are the Phrygians, according to Josephus; but some place them in Galatia and Cappadocia; and Strabo makes mention of a people called Trocmi, on the borders of Pontus and Cappadocia; and Cicero of the Trogmi or Trogini, who may have their name from hence; for the Greek interpreters always call him Torgama or Thorgana. The Jews make the Turks to be the posterity of Togarmah.).
Sons of Javan: Elishah, Tarshishah (referred to a coastal city of Spain, a destination of the prophet Jonah, Jonah 1:3, also, mentions the lions of Tarshish referring to Great Britain, and later the United States of America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, Ezekiel 38), Kittim (Cyprus), Rodanim.
Ham, son of Noah and ancestor of the African nations and Middle East, sons: Cush (Ethiopia), Mizraim (Egypt), Put (Libya & Algeria), and Canaan (Canaanites-present day Israel).
Sons of Cush: Seba, Havilah (Ethiopia), Sabta, Raama, Sabtecha.
Sons of Raama: Sheba (place of the Sabeans in S.W. Arabia, in present Yemen, also, the ancestor of the Queen of Sheba, mentions in I Kings 10 and her connect with King Solomon. Job’s livestock was stolen by Sabeans, Job 1:13-15) and Dedan.
Cush begot Nimrod, and Nimrod was a hunter and became mighty on the earth. He went to the land of Shinar and had built the Tower of Babel. Babylon rises to a world power and false religion, which is an influence still today (Iraq).
Sons of Mizraim: Ludim (Egypt), Anamin, Lehabim, Naphtuhim, Pathrusim, Casluhim (from which came the Philistines and the Caphtorim).
Canaan begot Sidon (1st born, Canaanite city was north of Tyre, present Lebanon. Canaanites are later to be known as the Phoenicians), Heth (Hethites later became the Hittites), the Jebusite, the Amorite, the Girgashite, the Hivite, the Arkite, the Sinite, the Arvodite, the Zemarite, and the Hamathite.
Shem, son of Noah and ancestor of the line of the Semitic races, Jews, Arameans, Persians, Assyrians, and Arabians. The line of Abraham the Covenant nation of God (Yahweh), sons: Elam (Elamites), Asshur (Assyria), Arphaxah (Jews, the line of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob), Lud, Aram (Syria), Uz (southern Edom west of Arabian desert-Job lived there, see Job 1:1), Hul, Gether, Meshech.
Arphaxah begot Shelah. Shelah begot Eber. Eber had two sons, Peleg (in his days the earth was divided) and Joktan (several tribes of the Arabian desert).
Sons of Joktan (Arabian): Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah, Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, Ebal, Abimaal, Sheba, Ophir (Arabia, gold producing region visited by ships of Solomon and the Phoenicians, I Kings 9:26-28), Havilah, Jobab.
Sons of Peleg: Reu
Reu begot Serug. Serug begot Nahor. Nahor begot Terah. Terah begot Abram (who is Abraham). Abraham went from Haran in Mesopotamia to the land of Canaan (Israel), promised by the Lord God. (His wife Sarah and his nephew Lot went with him.)
Sons of Abraham: Ishmael (by Hagar) and Isaac (by Sarah). Abraham begot other sons by his other wives. Her name is Keturah (Gen. 25). She bares him Zimran, Jokshan (sons, Sheba and Dedan), Medan, Midian (ancestor of the Midianites, Jethro priest of Midian was father-in-law to Moses; sons, Ephah, Epher, Henoch, Abida, and Eldaah), Ishbak, and Shuah. From Ishmael (son of Abraham and Hagar the Egyptian) came the Arab nations. Ishmael’s sons; Nebaioth, Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam, Mishma, Dumah, Massa, Hadad, Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah. Ishmael’s daughter was Basemath, the wife of Esau, the son of Isaac. Basemath bare Reuel.
Isaac married Rebecca and begot: Esau and Jacob (Genesis 46:1-27; Revelation 7:5-8, 14:1-5) The 12 Tribes of Israel. The 144,000 of the 12 tribes, there will be 12,000 sealed in each tribe.
Sons of Jacob (Israel) by Leah (Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah), Zilphah (maidservant of Leah), Bilhah (maidservant of Rachel), and Rachel (Joseph and Benjamin):
From the 12 tribes come,

Joseph’s 12 brothers sold him into slavery. Joseph is taken to Egypt. In obedience to his Lord, Joseph rises to greatness next to Pharaoh. A famine smites the land of Canaan. Egypt is spared by the dream revealed by God to Pharaoh that Joseph interpreted. Joseph’s brothers come to Egypt looking for food. Joseph tests his brothers and gets them to bring the younger brother Benjamin to Egypt. Joseph later reveals his identity to his brothers. All of Jacob’s family is united in Egypt where they live and the generations of the 12 tribes thrive until another Pharaoh rises up that did not know Joseph. The children of Israel are sed as slaves by the Egyptians for over 400 years. God rises up a prophet and deliverer called Moses. He brings them out of Egypt after God sends the plagues upon Egypt to set the people free. The people wander in the wilderness for 40 years before entering into the Promised Land of Canaan. Because of their disobedience the older generations die in the wilderness, only their children under the age of 20 could enter into the Promised Land. The ones to enter first into the land were Joshua and Caleb.
There was no king to rule Israel at this time so the Judges judged Israel these were Deborah and Barak, Gideon, Jephthah, Samson, Micah, and Benjamin. The last judge and prophet was Samuel. God commanded Samuel to anoint Saul as first king of Israel. Because of Saul’s sin and disobedience God commanded Samuel to anoint another king. God instructs Samuel to go to Jesse and select the future king from Jesse’s sons. Samuel anoints young David to be the future king to replace King Saul. David serves under Saul and Saul plots to kill David. David aids Saul’s army to defeat the Philistines and their champion, the giant, Goliath of Gath. David marries Saul’s daughter Michal. Later King Saul and his sons die in battle. David becomes king of Israel. It’s through his son Nathan continues the royal line to Jesus Christ.

America's Lost Colony 1587

Engraved portrait of Raleigh.Image via Wikipedia

The following was related from the historical account of Ivor Noel Hume. One hundred and seventeen colonists vanish in America's oldest mystery. America's oldest stories is a detective story. In 1584, in an effort to compete with Spain for New World gold, English explorers pointed their ships towards America, headed for a small island off the coast of North Carolina. Three years later, in 1587, an entire colony vanished from that island, leaving just one clue to their disappearance.

Those unlucky settlers have come to be known as the Lost Colony. Historian and archaeologist Ivor Noel Hume is one of the foremost researchers of the site today, and this is what he has to say about what happened on Roanoke Island.

It began in 1584 when two ships were sent over by Sir Walter Raleigh and Captains Amedus and Barlowe. They landed on the Outer Banks, and they met an Indian named Manteo, who they actually took back to England. They went back and they said that this country is really rich for the taking. Now, they didn’t really know what that meant, but they thought perhaps that the Indians were wearing gold in their headdresses and so on.

And so, in 1585, Raleigh financed an expedition to make a settlement, and it was led by Sir Richard Greenville, who was a very forceful, almost privateering sort of guy. He took with him a man called Ralph Lane, who was to be governor of whatever it is they established. They also took a guy called John White, and John White was an artist, and he drew everything that he saw while he was there. Those drawings eventually went back to England and provided really all we know about the physical appearance of the Indians at the time.

But, the English fell out with the various tribes that were around Roanoke Island. When you cut off other guys’ heads and things like that, then the other guys try to starve you out. So after six or eight months, the English had decided they wanted to go home. They had no food, the Indians weren’t helping them, they were in a confrontational relationship with the Indians. So they simply said they’d had enough.

After the English left -- under Lane – Greenville returns to bring supplies. Finds them gone, finds one white guy hanging, and one Indian. And there was nobody else around.

That was the end of the first attempt, yes. But when Greenville is back there in August, I guess it was July, of ’86, he left a small number of soldiers – some say 13, some say 16 – to hold onto the settlement, keep their foot in the door. Those were attacked by the Indians. Their storehouse was burnt down, they fled to their boats and were never seen again. Such information we have comes actually from Manteo. So much of what he said was a result of gossip.

Raleigh tries again in 1587. This is the Lost Colony. They come over. This time, it’s under John White, John White the artist, the illustrator from the first voyage. He is a somewhat indecisive leader. Once they’ve arrived, his council suggests it would be a good idea for him to go back and get some more supplies. This seemed a little strange. They’ve only just arrived, and they’re sending the leader – your boss – back. And the boss agreeing to go.

After he has left the colonists, and we don’t know what they were doing while they were there, presumably, but they did rebuild a fort. But it was a different sort of fort to the first one.

After he went back in ’87, England was tied up with the expected Spanish invasion – the Armada of 1588. Everything ground to a halt at that point. Nobody was in the mood to do anything about the Lost Colony people. Of course, they didn’t know they were lost at that point. They just were over there, out of mind.

And, White then endeavored to raise money to go back to reinforce the colony. Nobody was interested. So he finally got a passage aboard a privateer called ‘The Moonlight” which was going down into the Caribbean, to see if he could knock off some Spaniards, or rather, their gold. Finally, very reluctantly, they brought him up to Roanoke Island. There he found them gone. They found nobody.

All that White finds is a carving on a tree, that says “Cro.” Then, when he goes to the fort gate, he finds the word “croatoan” spelled out on the fort gate. White had told them, when he went back to England, if they had got into trouble, they were to write where they had gone, and to put a cross under it to indicate if there was trouble. So when he comes back, he finds “cro” and then he finds the full name written out on the fort gate. But there’s no cross. So, that’s the end of that story as far as we know.

This is the last fact that is known about the Lost Colony: when White came back, 117 men, women, and children had vanished. They left two clues, or maybe just the same clue, twice: the word Croatan.

Croatan was the island where the colonist's old friend Manteo was from, but no one knows if that's where the colonists went, since they were never seen again, and no archaeological evidence of them was found there. Some suspect that the colonists were assimilated into local tribes.

In the centuries since, archaeologists both amateur and professional have explored Roanoke island in search of the remains of the settlement, and they've found some evidence of those first English inhabitants. But on a coastal island of shifting dunes and tides, no trace of a fort has ever been found, and likely never will be.

My interest in this story was Ralph Lane because I'm descended from a Lane family from Montgomery Co., VA. My great great great grandmother Lou Emma Lane came with her parents John and Mary Lane to Kanawha Co., VA (now West Virginia). Could there be a connection?

The Henley Family of Princess Anne, Franklin & Carroll Co., VA


View Larger Map

I'm taking note as to where I have come so far on my direct ancestor Melinda Henley who married my great great great grandfather Thomas P. Hall who came from Franklin Co., VA to Kanawha Co., VA, now West Virginia into the Malden district. It is said that Thomas worked in the Saline Mills besides being a farmer. Prehaps the extra work was to help raise a fairly large family as Thomas and Malinda had 16 children. Malinda was the daughter of James B. and Elizabeth (Dodd) Henley from Franklin Co., VA.

Its been a little hard to track the whereabouts of James B. Henley as was related in family history accounts that he was a longhunter and probably left the family for long periods of time. so keeping track of James Henley hasn't been easy. The family was residing in the early 1800's in Carroll Co., VA. The 1842 Carroll Co., VA Personal Property Tax List lists Thomas Hall, Jonathan D. Hall, John Hall, Richard Hall, William E. Hall, Esq., Langford Hall, Jubal Henly, Lewis Henly, Larkin Henly, and Jacob Henly. REF: History of Carroll Co., VA, http://www.newrivernotes.com/va/carr1842.htm

I've found a James Henley born ca. 1790 in Princess Co., VA to parents Charles Henley Jr., and Keziah Brock. There is a James Henly married 8 Dec. 1985 in Princess Anne Co., VA to Lydia Bonney. James B. Henley was not listed in the 1820 Franklin Co., VA, but his wife Betsy Hendley was listed along with 4 males under 10 years of age and one female between the age of 10-16 which is said to be Miriam. It is said that Malinda was the daughter of Samuel Handley and wife Sarah who resided in Putnam Co. VA. This was very unlikely because Thomas and Malinda and some of the children were living in 1830 Franklin Co., VA until moving to Kanawha Co., VA ca. 1840.

A key to finding Malinda's parents is that its said that she had a twin brother named Jubal. Her birthdate was Nov. 27, 1811. She and Thomas also named a son Joseph Jubal Hall, my great great grandfather. So it's very likely that Malinda Hall would be the daughter of James B. Henley and Elizabeth 'Betsy' (Dodd) Henley. Both families resided in Franklin Co., VA. Elizabeth Henley was living in Carroll Co., VA in the 1850's. Her sons were living in Carroll and Grayson Co., VA.

Another important note, in the Franklin Co., VA Marriage Bonds, 1786-1858 that James Henley and Elizabeth Dodd, dau. of Sarah were married June 4, 1804, the surety Elijah Poteet. Elijah is said to be the brother of Sarah meaning Elijah is the uncle of Elizabeth. Elizabeth Henley died in Nov. 1850 in Hanover Co., VA.

100-Year-Old Fig Preserves

The syconium of the Fig tree.Image via Wikipedia

Fig trees have been grown in West Virginia a little over 100 years ago. Many West Virginians grow figs in their yards. Some of these fig trees date back about 1899. I grow dwarf figs tree on my limited plot of land. I love figs, and fresh figs are a rarity in grocery stores. The rest of us hear about how good fig cakes are, wishing that someone could give you a gift basket full of them. Figs are mentioned in the Bible used as a sweet confection and as a medicinal poultice for boils (2 Kings 20:7). This recipe seems up-to-date with today’s use.
  • 5 pounds peeled figs
  • 5 pounds sugar
  • 1 lemon, sliced

Quarter figs; place in bowl; add sugar and lemon; let stand 2 to 3 hours to draw juice; stir occasionally to help sugar dissolve. Place in saucepan and cook to rolling boil; boil 25 to 30 minutes, stirring constantly. After foam disappears and juice has thickened somewhat, ladle into hot jars and seal. Yield not given.

Pickled Brussels Sprouts

The Magic Donkey celebrates his new diet and a...Image by Mukumbura via Flickr

This is a recipe handed down from my grandmother Hall who loved to keep a garden and later can vegetables and fruits for the winter. Before there was a thing called refrigeration they had root cellars. Even raw milk was kept for a few days in stone pitchers. That was the good ol’ days. She also loved the Bible and loved to quilt. The pickled Brussels sprouts recipe is one of the heirlooms past down through our families.

1-qt. Brussels sprouts

5-small onions, sliced

1-cup canola oil

1-tsp. salt

1-cup sugar

2 cloves of garlic

1-cup vinegar

Pickling spice

3 large red peppers, diced

First, wash; trim ends of Brussels sprouts stems by cutting down lengthwise.

Next, Combine all ingredients in a large kettle and cook for 5 minutes. Add enough Brussels sprouts to float on the liquid. Add 1 garlic cloves to each jar. Cook Brussels sprouts for 3 minutes. Put in hot sterilized jars and seal.

The Halls of Mason County (West Virginia)

The Heritage of Thomas P. Hall & Malinda Henley of Franklin County, Virginia

By Teresa Carr

The family of Thomas P. Hall and Malinda Henley Hall (twin of Jubal Henley): Joseph Jubal Hall born 1832 Franklin Co., VA and died 5 Jan 1910 Mason Co. WV.; Mary Elizabeth (Hall) Slack d. 1919 Witchers Creek, Kanawha Co. WV.; Thomas P. Hall died 12 Mary 1921 Buffalo, Putnam Co. WV (death record found-copy on record); William Henry Hall died 5 Oct. 1875 Putnam Co. WV.; James Hall who resided in Ohio; Samuel I. Hall; Joel Hall.

There are other relatives seeking help with information on Henley family members - hopefully death records/obituaries if available or any other pertinent information on:

James B. Henley said to have been a longhunter married Elizabeth (Dodd) Henley

Their children:

Miriam Henley Jenkins d. 8 Aug. 1878 Carroll Co. VA
Jubal Henley d. 1870+ Fayette Co. WV and twin sister Malinda Henley born Nov. 27, 1811 in Franklin Co., VA. Malinda married Thomas P. Hall born 1805 in Virginia (see following)
Josiah Henley d. 11 Apr 1890 Carroll Co. VA
Larkin Henley after 1880 Malden, Kanawha Co. WV
Lewis Henley - 52nd VA militia - Carroll Co. VA
and Lewis Henley Fifer in the Revolutionary War VA.

James B. and Elizabeth also had a daughter Malinda a twin of Jubal's born in 1811. She married Thomas P. Hall and their family moved to Kanawha Co. (W)VA by 1840. There is another brother named Larkin who also moved to Kanawha Co. and lived near his sister. (On the 1820 census in Franklin Co. VA Elizabeth is listed as "Betsey Hendley with four male children under 10, 1 dau., under 10 (my ancestor) and her eldest dau. 10/16 (Miriam), James B. is not listed but since she had some children after 1820 - we must assume he "came home.” I will try to get the marriage record on Sarah/John in Montgomery Co. thanks for that information. I don't know where Cripple Creek is located?


Family history of Mary Whitlock:

Thomas J. Whitlock born ca. 1820 Patrick Co. VA and wife Susan Jane Snead/Sneed of Kanawha Co. WV named daughter Mary Ellen b. 28 Feb 1856 (usually names for mother or sisters). His parents are listed as Richard Whitlock married Sarah Hancock 8 Mar 1804 Patrick Co. VA - he died 31 May 1824 Patrick Co. VA and Sarah Hancock Whitlock died 1862 Malden, Kanawha Co. VA. Thomas naming a first daughter Mary is a sure sign of family connection with Mary wife of Larkin.

John Hall and Prudence Poteet Hall of Patrick Co. VA whom thought to be the parents of my Thomas P. Hall b. 1805 and married to Malinda Henley. (Larkin and Malinda's mother was a Dodd/Poteet! - my family always married cousins!!) Have sent request for research help in Patrick Co. VA. It is also a possibility that Robert and Lucy (Hodges) Hall are Thomas' parents. Thomas had a daughter Lucy Hall. It was

Larkin Henley son of James B. Henley is a brother to my ancestors Thomas P. Hall and his Larkin's sister Malinda b. 1811 and married ca. 1825 - not recorded in Franklin Co. VA so I need to check in Patrick Co. (thanks for telling me about the Whitlock's living on the Patrick/Franklin Co. Border - big help).
Thomas P. Hall and Malinda Henley Hall and 2 children are on the 1830 census in Franklin Co. VA as is her mother and three of her and Larkin's siblings. In 1840 Larkin and his brother Jubal are in Grayson Co. VA - in 1842 Larkin is in Carroll Co. VA (where his eldest sister lived) on the Personal Property Tax. I have his marriage to Mary (Polly) Whitlock as 1844 in Kanawha Co. VA. Please know that Thomas P. Hall and Malinda (Larkin's sister moved here around 1837 - whether they came with the Whitlock's I don't know for sure - nor how many other families came from Franklin Co. VA to Kanawha Co. VA together. I agree that Mary (Polly) belongs to the Whitlock family. My record has her father as unknown but her mother as Sarah. How are you related to Mary/Larkin?

No one else knew Malinda was a daughter of James B. Henley and Elizabeth "Betsey" Dodd - but she is my ancestor. If you saw the 1820 census in Franklin Co. VA you would find Betsey Hendley with 2 daughters and her sons. The daughters were Miriam and Malinda. On the 1830 Franklin Co. VA census Malinda and her husband Thomas P. Hall have 2 females under 10. Thomas P. Hall/Malinda Henley were married by 1828 in VA (haven't found the record yet). They moved to Kanawha Co. VA/WV along with her brother Larkin who married Mary (Polly) Whitlock there in 1844 (Polly's parents moved there from Franklin Co. VA also). He was a Blacksmith. In 1880 he was a border with another family. Polly seems to have died before the 1860 census there. They had 4 daughters. Thomas P. Hall and Malinda are credited with 16 children!! Malinda was a twin to Jubal Henley born in 1811. (If they had that many, there must have been some twins). She died in 1890 in Buffalo, Putnam Co. WV. Their daughter Sarah Jane is my direct ancestor. Which of the Henley children are you descended from? In spite of all my efforts I have been unable to learn who the parents are of James B. Henley. I have a researcher hired in Franklin Co. VA where he/Elizabeth married in 1804 and she has been unable to locate any records on the Henley/Hendley/Handlay families in Franklin Co. VA.

The family of John Dodd and Sarah Poteet, Franklin Co. VA and daughter Elizabeth Dodd who married James B. Henley June 1804 Franklin Co. VA

Seeking information on the children of John Hall and Prudence Poteet. James Poteet her father sold land to John's father Nathan ca. 1784 in Henry Co. VA. Two of John's brothers and some Poteets in Franklin Co. VA 1790's. My ancestor Thomas P (Poteet?) Hall born Franklin Co. VA 1804. Is he a son of John Hall and Prudence Poteet?

Malinda Henley b. 1811 Franklin Co. VA is the daughter of James B. Henley and Elizabeth Dodd who were married in Franklin Co. VA in 1804. I agree that she and Thomas P. Hall did not move into Kanawha Co. VA until 1830's. I am currently researching Thomas P. Hall family as I found him and Malinda on the 1820 census in Franklin Co. VA. The last name has been spelled several ways but I believe "Henley" is correct.

Malinda Hendley and Thomas P. Hall are my ancestors also. I believe Malinda to be Handley vs Hendley - the name was spelled both ways as well as Hanley/Henley. Further, I believe that her parents were Samuel Handley and Sarah Walker Harmon who were in Kanawha Co. (W)VA by 1820 -then Putnam Co. (W)VA where Malinda/Thomas settled by 1850 also. A John Handley/Hendley settled in Kanawha at the same time but he did not have children the correct age to be Malinda's parent - but I believe him to be Samuel's brother.

I agree, a tough family, James B. was gone more than home yet it seems home often enough to make a few children - he never shows up on a census record with any part of the family. I don't know where William Henley was born - I didn't follow the trace on him in Kanawha Co. but I can see if any record there that would help - William is on the 1860 census there at 65 a miller with second wife Sarah and her children. Also on 1860 is a Samuel 34 farmer (probably a son) . Edward 31 farmer (probably another son). I checked the Kanawha Co. Cemetery books I have - William died Apr 21, 1890 at 85 y/o 1 mo 24 days. First wife Catharine died 1857 at 59 y/o. There is a "Woods Family (Henley Family) Cemetery" in Kanawha Co. WV.
I'll see if there is an actual death record and perhaps an obituary on William that might help us. Notes in my file lit Henley's in VA Tax Payers in Henry Co. VA - that is adjacent to Franklin Co. VA - did you check there? Can you? Also William Henley was in Botetourt Co. VA in 1830 - my other ancestors from Botetourt Co. settled in Kanawha Co. about the same time. So this might be William above. I am really interested in the fact that William son of William/Mary Ann married a Miriam? James B. Henley named his eldest daughter Miriam/Mariam! Malinda Henley and Thomas P. Hall married approximately 1828 when their first daughter was born - but I have yet to find the record - probably married in a neighboring county if not NC - she was 15 or 16 years old. Will research this further. Thomas P. Hall and Malinda and their first two daughters appear on the 1830 census in Franklin Co. VA as does her mother "Betsey Hendley" with sons. So sister Miriam was also married by then.

I am also a descendant of James B. Henley - I found your listing on the Hensley genforum wherein you list William Henley as being in Franklin Co. VA personal property tax list in 1790 - and James B. m. there in 1804.

Franklin Co., Virginia Research
There was a William Henley b. VA 1795 married Catherine Davis with children Edward, William, Frances, Woodson, probably a couple more. (He moved to Kanawha Co. VA by the 1840 census - not there in 1830. He is listed with 8 young male children and 2 young female children, himself and his wife). On the 1850 census he is listed with his wife Catherine and the 4 children I listed above. She seems to have died before 2 Sept. 1859 when he married Sarah Anderson Bowman widow of John Bowman in Kanawha Co. VA. The reason I share this is that my ancestor Malinda Henley dau. of James B. Henley and Elizabeth Dodd m. Thomas P. Hall in Franklin Co. VA - they moved to Kanawha Co. VA about the same time as William Henley - Malinda's brother Larkin moved there also! I thought perhaps William and James B. were related and that is why the family moved to Kanawha Co. VA - since James B. seems to have died by then! (Elizabeth is in Carroll Co. VA with her sons at this time.) Is there any information linking them to William /Mary Ann Osborn Henley etc. that we can verify?

I last saw Fleming on the 1850 census Carroll Co. VA with his brother Lewis- Fleming was listed as 16 y/o idiot! I would like to refer you to Romona Best her e-mail is monieb2@msn.com - she is descended from James, James, Benjamin Wallace, Osa Georgie, Romona Best – I’m a freelance graphic artist and work part-time as a Medical Information Specialist. The things that helped me place Malinda Henley to James B. Henley/Elizabeth Dodd family was that Malinda named her first son Jubal, a daughter Miriam, etc. - the fact that Larkin lived four doors from Malinda in Kanawha Co. WV and next door to my ancestor Sarah Jane etc. I was putting the family together in Kanawha Co. WV - and then found my way back to Franklin Co. VA. One "clue" I have in my files that I have not followed up on was that there was a "Larkin Henley" as a Fifer in Rev. War from VA. James named a son Larkin so I thought it a clue worth noting. The Fifer's were usually very young.

Seeking information and hopefully death records/obituaries on family of Thomas P. Hall and Malinda Henley Hall (twin of Jubal Henley): Joseph Jubal Hall born 1832 Franklin Co., VA and died 5 Jan 1910 Mason Co. WV. Mary E. Hall Slack d. 1919 Witchers Creek, Kanawha Co. WV. Thomas P. Hall died 12 May 1921 Buffalo, Putnam Co. WV (death record found-copy on record). William Henry Hall died 5 Oct. 1875 Putnam Co. WV.

Information on Henley family members - death records/obituaries if available or any other pertinent information on:
Miriam Henley Jenkins d. 8 Aug. 1878 Carroll Co. VA
Jubal Henley d. 1870+ Fayette Co. WV
Josiah Henley d. 11 Apr 1890 Carroll Co. VA
Larkin Henley after 1880 Malden, Kanawha Co. WV
Lewis Henley - 52nd VA militia - Carroll Co. VA
Lewis Henley Fifer in the Revolutionary War VA.

James B. and Elizabeth also had a daughter Malinda a twin of Jubal's born in 1811. She married Thomas P. Hall and their family moved to Kanawha Co. (W)VA by 1840. There is another brother named Larkin who also moved to Kanawha Co. and lived near his sister. (On the 1820 census in Franklin Co. VA Elizabeth is listed as "Betsey Hendley with four male children under 10, 1 dau., under 10 (my ancestor) and her eldest dau. 10/16 (Miriam), James B. is not listed but since she had some children after 1820 - we must assume he "came home". I will try to get the marriage record on Sarah/John in Montgomery Co. thanks for that information. I don't know where Cripple Creek is located ?


Thomas J. Whitlock born ca. 1820 Patrick Co. VA and wife Susan Jane Snead/Sneed of Kanawha Co. WV named daughter Mary Ellen b. 28 Feb 1856 (usually names for mother or sisters). His parents are listed as Richard Whitlock married Sarah Hancock 8 Mar 1804 Patrick Co. VA - he died 31 May 1824 Patrick Co. VA and Sarah Hancock Whitlock died 1862 Malden, Kanawha Co. VA.

I think that Thomas naming a first daughter Mary is a sure sign of family connection with Mary Whitlock wife of Larkin Henley.

I am researching John Hall and Prudence Poteet Hall of Patrick Co. VA whom I believe to be the parents of my Thomas P. Hall b. 1805 and married to Malinda Henley. (Larkin and Malinda's mother was a Dodd/Poteet! - my family always married cousins!!) Have sent request for research help in Patrick Co. VA.


Larkin Henley son of James B. Henley is a brother to my ancestors Thomas P. Hall and his Larkin's sister Malinda b. 1811 and married ca. 1825 - not recorded in Franklin Co. VA so I need to check in Patrick Co. (thanks for telling me about the Whitlock's living on the Patrick/Franklin Co. Border - big help).
Thomas P. Hall and Malinda Henley Hall and 2 children are on the 1830 census in Franklin Co. VA as is her mother and three of her and Larkin's siblings. In 1840 Larkin and his brother Jubal are in Grayson Co. VA - in 1842 Larkin is in Carroll Co. VA (where his eldest sister lived) on the Personal Property Tax. I have his marriage to Mary (Polly) Whitlock as 1844 in Kanawha Co. VA. Please know that Thomas P. Hall and Malinda (Larkin's sister moved here around 1837 - whether they came with the Whitlock's I don't know for sure - nor how many other families came from Franklin Co. VA to Kanawha Co. VA together. I agree that Mary (Polly) belongs to the Whitlock family. My record has her father as unknown but her mother as Sarah. How are you related to Mary/Larkin?

Malinda (Henley) Hall was a daughter of James B. Henley and Elizabeth "Betsey" Dodd - but she is my ancestor. If you saw the 1820 census in Franklin Co. VA you would find Betsey Hendley with 2 daughters and her sons. The daughters were Miriam and Malinda. On the 1830 Franklin Co. VA census Malinda and her husband Thomas P. Hall have 2 females under 10. Thomas P. Hall/Malinda Henley were married by 1828 in VA (haven't found the record yet). They moved to Kanawha Co. VA/WV along with her brother Larkin who married Mary (Polly) Whitlock there in 1844 (Polly's parents moved there from Franklin Co. VA also). He was a Blacksmith. In 1880 he was a border with another family. Polly seems to have died before the 1860 census there. They had 4 daughters. Thomas P. Hall and Malinda are credited with 16 children!!

Which of the Henley children are you descended from? In spite of all my efforts I have been unable to learn who the parents are of James B. Henley. Extended research in Franklin Co. VA where he/Elizabeth married in 1804 and she has been unable to locate any records on the Henley/Hendley/Handlay families in Franklin Co. VA.

Seeking information on family of John Dodd and Sarah Poteet, Franklin Co. VA and daughter Elizabeth who married James B. Henley June 1804 Franklin Co. VA.

Seeking information on the children of John Hall and Prudence Poteet. James Poteet her father sold land to John's father Nathan ca. 1784 in Henry Co. VA. Two of John's brothers and some Poteets in Franklin Co. VA 1790's. My ancestor Thomas P (Poteet???) Hall born Franklin Co. VA 1804. Is he a son of John Hall and Prudence Poteet?

Malinda Henley b. 1811 Franklin Co. VA is the daughter of James B. Henley and Elizabeth Dodd who were married in Franklin Co. VA in 1804. I agree that she and Thomas P. Hall did not move into Kanawha Co. VA until 1830's. Daughter Mary Elizabeth was born in 1828. A son Joseph Jubal, was born in Franklin Co., in 1832. So, the family was still in Franklin County before the 1830 and 1840 censuses. I am currently researching Thomas P. Hall family as I found him and Malinda on the 1820 census in Franklin Co. VA. The last name has been spelled several ways but I believe "Henley" is correct.

Malinda Hendley and Thomas P. Hall are my ancestors also. I believe Malinda to be Handley vs Hendley - the name was spelled both ways as well as Hanley/Henley. Further, I believe that her parents were Samuel Handley and Sarah Walker Harmon who were in Kanawha Co. (W)VA by 1820 -then Putnam Co. (W)VA where Malinda/Thomas settled by 1850 also. A John Handley/Hendley settled in Kanawha at the same time but he did not have children the correct age to be Malinda's parent - but I believe him to be Samuel's brother.

BTW: Does anyone know if there is connection to Don Henley from Texas, member of the rock band The Eagles and the Henley family of Virginia? Also for your information there is a Poteet, Texas.
