Descendants of Richard OWINGS (1659-1716)


First Generation  Next




1. Captain Richard Owings "the Settler",1 2 3 son of Owen Humphrey of Llwyn du 4 5 and Margaret Vaughan,6 7 was born on 7 Mar 1659 in <Llwyn du>, Llanllugan, Montgomeryshire, Wales and died on 14 Nov 1716 in Baltimore Co., Maryland, (United States) at age 57. Other names for Richard were Captain Richard Owen and Richard Owens.

Birth Notes: Most sources give Richard's birth date as 1660, but it may have been 7 Mar 1658/59 and in Wales.

Death Notes: Died intestate.

Research Notes: This researcher's note from 5 July 2014:

I find it likely that Richard Owings had two wives, both named Rachel. If I am right, it might be thus:
1) Racheal Roberts, m. abt 1682 in England or Wales. She was daughter of Robert Pugh (aka Pugh Roberts/Robert Pugh/Robert ap Hugh)
2) Rachel Beale/Beall, m. 4 Apr 1698 in Dorchester, Massachusetts.

This scenario would make Racheal Roberts the mother of the first set of children (Rachel Owings, Catherine Owings and possibly Richard Owings (Jr.), depending upon the latter's birthdate). Rachel Beale would be the mother of all the others.

As far as I can determine, other researchers are not in agreement about which Rachel was Richard Owings' wife. Most assume that there was only one woman named Rachel. I am taking a more creative approach, as yet not disproven, and am proposing that there were two women who happened to have the same first name. It makes a better story. If it was so, all that is in question is the timing of marriages & births.

Source http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:a41513&id=I0192 lists two wives:
1) Rachel Roberts m. 1682
2) Rachel Beale b. 1662, England, m. 1690 in Maryland

------------
Several sources mention that Richard Owen was named after Richard Davies of Welshpool, Montgomeryshire, who was a famous Quaker minister. Richard Davies visited Owen Humphrey (Richard's father), along with Owen's brothers Samuel and John, in Llwyngril in 1662 and attests to their faithfulness and that of others in the Quaker community there.

Excerpt from http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~paxson/southern/owings.html - M.J.P. Grundy, 26 Jul 2008:

"Our Richard Owen1 identified himself as a carpenter, first of Anne Arundel County, then of Baltimore County. One source says he was born in Virginia and died before 11 February 1726/7. He was married to Rachel (__) by 1701/2.[1]

"As with most of our colonial Maryland ancestors, we find traces of them in legal records of various kinds. For example, Richard had borrowed considerable money from Christopher RANDALL , that was listed in the latter's estate inventory 20 Mar. 1684/5. I don't know if the loans were in order to purchase real estate, or for some other reason. Richard made several real estate transactions. On 12 September 1685 he bought the tract "Range" from Thomas LIGHTFOOT and his wife Rebecca. It was in Anne Arundel County about a mile from the head of the Anne Arundel River, by the line of Richard WARFIELD's land, by a tract called the "Marsh". The next fall Richard sold 384 acres to Jabez PIERPONT, a planter of Baltimore County, for 4,500 pounds of tobacco. Richard's wife released her dower right in it. On 10 October 1694 Richard had surveyed for him 450 acres on the west side of the Patapasco, north side of Col. TAYLOR's land. On 13 March (or August) 1704 Richard conveyed 225 acres out of the total 450 acre "Owen's Adventure" to Col. Edward DORSEY for £40. The tract had originally been patented 10 November 1695. On 1 June 1708 Richard sold another 100 acres from "Owings Adventure" [notice the spelling variations as officially recorded] to Richard ACTON, planter. This tract had been granted to Richard by Lord Baltimore 3 April 1700. Richard's wife, Rachel, gave her consent. On 1 June 1708 Richard owens of Baltimore County, carpenter, conveyed 100 acres, which was part of a larger tract, with Rachel's consent, to Richard ACTON, planter. Another land grant was made to Capt. Richard Owings on 10 September 1725 consisting of 480 acres in Baltimore County named "Owens Outland Plains".[2]


On 16 October 1697 the Assembly passed an "Act appointing Rangers for the defence of this Province". It decreed that fifteen men be raised "to strengthen the Garrison and frontiers at Potomak". They were to be raised proportionately from Anne Arundel, Calvert, St. Mary's, and Charles Counties. The colonels were to "impress them, but if Volunteers can be afterwards procured" the draftees could be released. Richard Owen of Anne Arundel County was made Captain over the new recruits, with Giles HILL of St. Mary's County, the Lieutenant. Two weeks later Richard signed a receipt for arms and equipment received from the Governor: 1 brass "lanthorne", 2 carbines and belts, 2 bayonettes and belts, 2 pair of pistols, 1 brass compass, 1 "prospective" glass, 30 flints, 2 Bibles, 1 Whole Duty of Man, 5 "Catuch boxes" and belts, and $1.00.[3]

"That was not the extent of Richard's military career. He also appeared on a list of soldiers under the command of Col. Ninian BEALE from 6 February 1699 to 6 May 1700. For this he was paid at 3/4d per day, for a total of £15.03.04.[4]


"The only other fact about Richard of which we can be sure, is that he and Rachel were the parents of Samuel, because Samuel had this information entered in the St. Thomas parish register, Garrison Forest, Baltimore County. St. Paul's was the first parish in Baltimore County, and there are four Owings marriages in the St. Paul's Parish register, that let us infer they are all siblings: Robert, Samuel, Joshua, and Ruth. Later, St. Thomas was set off from St. Paul. The web site of "First Families of Anne Arundel County" lists additional children. Some may be conflated from other families.

From http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:2492193&id=I2555:

Captain Richard Owings, The Settler

Richard Owings, was born Richard Owen, or perhaps Richard ab Owain, at about the time of the restoration of the Stewarts. The place of his birth was probably in the parish of Llanllugan, in the central part of County Montgomery, North Wales. For it is here we find that Cwn Owain or Valley of Owen whose name he was to give to one of his plantations. It lies in the southwestern portion of the parish among the upper waters of the southern branch of the Rhiw.

Of Richard Owings' parents we no nothing, but we may infer that they were yeomen or small gentlefolk, a class then numerous in Wales, and he himself was bred to the trade of carpenter. The origins of his wife, Rachel, are likewise uncertain, but one may suppose that they were married about 1682, for their eldest surviving child, a daughter, was born in the following year. In 1684 they removed to Anne Arundel County, Maryland, and there settled in Middle Neck Hundred, between the Severn and the South Rivers. They may have had relatives in this vicinity, or they may have been attracted to it by the familiar name of its principal river.

Richard Owings probably began in his new home by practicing his trade, but he seems later to have turned more and more to planting. On 12 September 1685, he purchased of Thomas Lightfoot "The Range," 384 acres, which on 9 November 1686 he sold to Jabez Pierpont. On 15 February 1688/9 he surveyed a second tract, near or contiguous to the former, called "Owings' Range" and embracing 162 acres, which he sold on 5 August 1690 to Ambrose Nelson. Both plantations were in Middle Neck Hundred a little to the west of the present Crownsville. Very probably he continued to occupy one or the other until his removal to Baltimore County in 1701-2. Meantime he had surveyed a third tract of land, 10 May 1688, called "Locust Thicket," 384 acres, which lay up south of the Patapsco, on Elk Ridge, in Broad Neck Hundred of Anne Arundel County, near what is now Shipley Station. This he sold, prior to April 1698, to Col. William Holland.

From 18 October 1697 until their disbandment in May 1701 Richard Owings served with the rank of Captain as commander of the mounted rangers enforced at the Little Falls of the Potomac. This was in New Scotland Hundred of Prince George's County, but it is now within the limits of Georgetown, District of Columbia. He and his men were to range the woods in this frontier area, looking out for possibly hostile "foreign Indians." They were to keep liaison with another Maryland garrison, north of the Patapsco, and with a Virginia garrison across the Potomac.

On his retirement Captain Owings settled, prior to Midsummer, 1702, in the Upper Part, North Patapsco Hundred, Baltimore County, where he had previously surveyed, on 10 October 1694, two neighboring plantations. These were "Long Acre", 225 acres, on the north bank of the Patapsco, halfway between Elk Ridge Landing and the present Ellicott City, and "Owings' Adventure," 450 acres, directly back in the woods and at or near the southeast corner of what is now Catonsville. On the former tract he built a small frame dwelling with brick chimneys at either end, a separate kitchen house, several tobacco barns, and other structures. Of the latter tract, he sold the northwest half to Col. Edward Dorsey, 13 August 1704.

After May 1727 this area was a part of Anne Arundel County. Captain Owings died, shortly before 14 November 1716, seized of all "Long Acre," 125 acres of "Owings' Adventure," and all of "The Valley of Owen." His widow occupied the dwelling plantation until her own death a little before 27 May 1729.

Richard Owings, Sr. served as Captain of the Rangers on the Potomac River from October 18, 1697 to May 16, 1701 when the Rangers were disbanded. He was known the rest of his life as Captain Richard Owings.

Marsha Barnes wrote in GenForum on 25 Oct 2006:
"There is some confusion on who Captain Richard was married to. Richard was married to Rachel ROBERTS in Llwyn-Dedwydd, Wales. Abt 1665. She died in Baltimore, Co. MD Bef. 27 May, 1729. They had a daughter named Rachel born 1683 she was the first of 10 children they had. Captain Richard Owings father was Owen Humprey Owings of Llwyngwril, Merioneth, Wales born 1629, and his mother was Margaret Vaughn of Llangelynin, Montgomeryshire Wales. Born 1630 I could go on if you want more info."

Very likely the first wife of Richard Owings, if Richard remarried after this Rachel died. If so, his second wife may have been Rachel Beale. It is important to know Rachel Roberts' death date, as well as the birthdates of her (?) children.

Were there really two? That would eliminate some of this confusion - two mothers, two daughters.

Were there two mothers named Rachel, each with a daughter named Ruth??

The case for two daughters named Ruth:

Source: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.snacestry.com/~paxson/southern/owings.html (compiled by MJP Grundy, 2002): "On 3 Nov. 1729 Richard [Owings, Jr.] and his wife Sarah made a deed of gift of 'Owings Addition' to his sister Ruth NORWOOD, and on 24 May 1732 they gave Ruth, identified as 'spinster', for her 'natural life' 32 acres of 'Owings Addition' also to her."

Ruth married Edward Norwood.,12 son of Edward Norwood. Edward was born about 1685 and died by 1729 about age 44.

Research Notes: Ruth was widowed in 1729 when deeded "Owings Addition" by her brother Richard.

Richard next married Rachel Beale,13 daughter of Colonel Ninian Beale 14 15 and Ruth Polly Moore, Bef Fall 1686 in Dorchester, Maryland, (United States). Rachel was born about 1662 in England and died before 27 May 1729 in Baltimore Co., Maryland, (United States). Other names for Rachel were Rachel Bale and Rachel Beall.

Marriage Notes: M.J.P. Grundy found that Richard's wife released her dower right in 384 acres in Anne Arundel County that Richard sold to Jabez Pierpont in fall 1686. This would place the marriage date before that time. Do not know her surname.

Research Notes: Rachel Beale may not have been the daughter of Col. Ninian Beale. She is not mentioned in The Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, Maryland by J. D. Warfield (Baltimore, 1905), pp. 101-103, where his other descendents are discussed. In addition, sources vary in the spelling: Beale, Beall, Bale.

From http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~paxson/southern/owings.html :

Samuel Owings2, the son of Richard and Rachel, was born 1 April 1702 in St. Thomas parish, Garrison Forest, Baltimore County, and died 6 April 1775 in Baltimore County. On 1 January 1729/30 at St. Thomas Parish he married Urath RANDALL , daughter of Thomas and Hannah (BALE) Randall . She was born 1 January 1713 in St. Thomas parish, and died 15 December 1793 in Baltimore County.[14]

They resided at "Green Spring Punch", a 286 acre plantation in Green Spring Valley, Baltimore County that Rachel brought with her when she married. Their children were born in a stone house of two rooms on the first and two on the second floors, known by the same name. It had been inherited by Urath's mother Hannah from her brother, Thomas BALE. The cottage was home to Owings from 1700 to 1870, and has been enlarged and altered over time. Some of the buildings on the farm were still in existence in the 1930s.[15]

On 20 May 1734 Samuel and Christopher Randall (probably Samuel's brother-in-law) agreed to divide "Green Spring". Eight days later Christopher sold 100 acres of his part.[15a]

In addition to "Green Spring Punch", by 1750 Samuel also owned "Addition" (150 acres), "Severn" (100 acres), "Timber Level" (350 acres), "Come by Chance" (50 acres) and other lands. In all he owned about 2,800 acres, of which 2,165 were acquired by patent and about 35 by purchase. He was styled "Gentleman". Between 1764 and 1769 he bought an additional 487 acres in Baltimore County, and sold 48. In 1770 he bought 162 acres in Frederick County and gave 200 acres in Baltimore County to his son Thomas.[16]

Samuel was Anglican, and served in St. Paul's Parish Vestry (Baltimore County) in 1735-38 and 1744-45. Then later he served in the St. Thomas Parish Vestry from 1750 to 1752. He was appointed to a commission along with Christopher RANDALL, William HAMILTON, and Nicholas HAILE to select and purchase a site, and receive subscriptions to build a chapel of ease for the parish in 1741. On 4 July Christopher GIST, with his wife Sarah's consent, conveyed 2 acres of "Adventure" to them for that purpose.

Samuel began his public career as a justice in Baltimore County, serving terms from 1744 to 1757, 1758 to 1764 (part of the quorum in 1750-57 and 1758-64). Then he served as justice in the Especial Court of Oyer, Terminer, and Gaol Delivery in Baltimore County from 1753 to 1761, and in 1763 (quorum both terms).[18]

In 1757 Samuel was elected to the Lower House of the Maryland Assembly, where he served two terms: 1757-58 and 1758-61.[19]

By 1763 Samuel was known as "Esq.". Although his main source of income was as a planter, he also owned a saw mill.[20]

Samuel was listed for Back River Upper Hundred tax list in 1767. Others in the same Hundred that year were his son Bale Owings, nephew Bazil Owings, and Charles Ridgely Sr . and Jr.[20a]

Samuel made his will in 1772 and began distributing his Baltimore County land to his children--not always according to what had been written in his will. Within the year he gave 250 acres to his son Samuel, 223 acres to Hannah, 400 acres to Christopher, 90 to Bale, and 257 to daughter Urath. He died at 2:00 a.m. on 6 April 1775 at the age of 73. His estate inventory was filed 8 May 1776 by Edward COCKEY and George RISTEAU. It included fifteen enslaved humans, one indentured servant, books, plate valued at £13.8.0, millstones, and oak plank. He owned about 2,000 acres in Baltimore and Frederick Counties. The final administration was filed 21 June 1776 at a value of £1,533.13.11 current money. Creditors John Cockey and Rau HULSE and kinsmen Samuel and Thomas Owings approved it. Executor was his son Bale Owings. He bequeathed Urath seven Negroes, a life interest in his "dwelling plantation", and one tenth of his money, stock and personalty as long as she remained a widow. At her death the personalty was to be divided equally among their chilren. Any land not specifically bequeathed was to be divided equally between Urath, Richard, and Rebecca. The residue of the estate was to be divided equally among all nine children.[21]
Samuel Jr. bought the rights to "Green Spring Punch" in 1790, but gave his mother a life estate in the property. Urath died 15 December 1793. In her will, signed 26 November 1792 she gave her son Samuel his father's cane, and her grand daughter Urath Owings twelve pictures. She mentioned her children: Samuel, Thomas, Richard, Rachel STEVENSON, Urath LAWRENCE, and Hannah STONE; and her grandchildren: Urath CROMWELL, Urath Owings, Ruth Owings (widow of Samuel), Urath Stevenson, Elizabeth Lawrence, Deborah Howard, and Beal Owings (son of Christopher). A codicil added granddaughter Martha Stone 6 January 1793.[22]

Text from Find A Grave Memorial # 158266947:

Urath was the daughter of Thomas Randall and Hannah (Bale) Randall.

Urath married Samuel Owings, Sr., (1 Apr 1702 - 6 Apr 1775) on 1 Jan 1729.

Urath's mother, Hannah, had inherited a little house, part stone and part log, two rooms below and two above, from her brother, Thomas Bale. It was called "Green Spring Punch." It was on Green Spring Valley Road, east of Reisterstown Road, in the Green Spring Valley. This house was given to Urath upon her marriage. The house was home to the Owings until 1870, and was enlarged and altered over time. Some of the buildings on the farm were still in existence in the 1930s.

Samuel is buried in the Church Yard at St. Thomas' too.

Urath wrote her will on 26 Nov 1792. She mentioned her children Samuel, Thomas, Richard, Rachel (Owings) Stevenson, Urath (Owings) Lawrence, and Hannah (Owings) Stone. She mentioned her grandchildren, Urath Cromwell, Urath Owings, Ruth Owings (widow of Samuel), Urath Stevenson, Elizabeth Lawrence, Deborah Howard, and Beal Owings (son of Christopher). Samuel Owings, Jr., received his father's cane, and her granddaughter, Urath Owings, received 12 pictures. A codicil on 6 Jan 1793 added 14-year-old granddaughter, Martha Stone.
_____

The known children of Samuel and Urath were:

1) Samuel Owings, Jr., (17 Aug 1733 - 1803) married Deborah Todd (Lynch) Owings (died 1810) on 6 Oct 1765. She was the daughter of William Lynch (died 1751). Samuel and Deborah lived at Ulm on Painter's Mill Road, near Reisterstown Road, (now) Owings Mills, Baltimore County, MD. In 1790, Samuel bought the rights to "Green Spring Punch," but gave his mother a life estate in the property.

2) Thomas Owings

3) Richard Owings

4) Rachel (Owings) Stevenson

5) Urath (Owings) Lawrence

6) Hannah (Owings) Cockey Stone (27 July 1750 - 15 June 1817) was married to William Cockey, Jr. (1746 - 1775) on 30 June 1771 by Rev. William Edmondson. He was the son of William Cockey, Sr., and Constant (Ashman) Cockey Randall. Hannah [2nd] married Capt. William Stone on 21 Apr 1778.


Children from this marriage were:

   58 M    i. Bale Owings 11 was born on 9 May 1731, was christened in St. Paul's Church, Baltimore Co., Maryland, (United States), and died on 30 Dec 1781 at age 50.

Research Notes: Unmarried.

From http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~paxson/southern/owings.html :
Bale Owings3, b. Sunday, 9 May 1731, at 8 p.m., christened at St. Paul's; d. 30 Dec. 1781; unmarried; received 90 ac. in Balt. Co. from his father in 1772-73. Named executor for his father's estate, he inherited "Severn", "Come by Chance", "Owing's Traverse", 20 ac. of "Rich Meadow", and one Negro.

+ 59 M    ii. Samuel Owings Jr. 11 52 was born on 17 Aug 1733, was christened in St. Paul's Church, Baltimore Co., Maryland, (United States), and died on 11 Jun 1803 in <Owings Mills>, Maryland, United States at age 69.

   60 F    iii. Rachel Owings 11 was born on 2 May 1736 and was christened in St. Paul's Church, Baltimore Co., Maryland, (United States).

Research Notes: From http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~paxson/southern/owings.html :
Rachel Owings, b. Sunday, 2 May 1736 at midnight, christened at St. Paul's; m. 16 Dec. 1762 Henry STEVENSON (27 June 1737-1816), a merchant in Balt. Co., son of Edward Stevenson (ca. 1703-1760). Henry's brother John (ca. 1739-1804) probably a planter in Balt. Co., was active in the Lower House during the Revolution. Rachel inherited from her father part of "Rich Meadow" and part of "Pigeon Hill", for a total of 140 ac.

Rachel married Henry Stevenson,19 son of Edward Stevenson, on 16 Dec 1762. Henry was born on 27 Jun 1737 and died in 1816 at age 79.

+ 61 F    iv. Urath Owings 11 was born on 26 Jun 1738, was christened on 7 Jul 1738 in St. Paul's Church, Baltimore Co., Maryland, (United States), died on 17 Sep 1807 at age 69, and was buried in Lawrence Family Cemetery, Hurstbourne, Jefferson, Kentucky, United States.53

+ 62 M    v. Thomas Owings 11 was born on 18 Oct 1740, was christened in St. Paul's Church, Baltimore Co., Maryland, (United States), and died on 23 Aug 1822 at age 81.

   63 F    vi. Hannah Owings 11 was born on 17 Apr 1743 in Baltimore Co., Maryland, (United States), was christened in St. Paul's Church, Baltimore Co., Maryland, (United States), died on 26 Jan 1745 in Baltimore Co., Maryland, (United States) at age 1, and was buried in St. Thomas Cemetery, Milford Mill, Baltimore, Maryland, United States.54

Research Notes: Hannah Owings #1 - Died at age 2.

+ 64 M    vii. Christopher Owings 11 was born on 16 Feb 1745 and died on 12 Jan 1783 at age 37.

   65 M    viii. Richard Owings 11 was born on 26 Aug 1746, died on 28 Sep 1747 at age 1, and was buried in St. Thomas Cemetery, Milford Mill, Baltimore, Maryland, United States.55

Research Notes: There were apparently two children named Richard Owings, this one, who died in infancy (born 26 Aug 1746) and another born 16 Jul 1749. To confuse matters, according to FindaGrave.com, the Richard Owings born on 26 Aug 1746 (death date unknown) married Ruth Warfield. That information is probably erroneous.

   66 F    ix. Helen Owings 16 was born in 1747 and died in 1747.

   67 M    x. Richard Owings 11 was born on 16 Jul 1749 and died on 20 Jan 1819 at age 69.

Research Notes: There may have been two children named Richard Owings, one who died in infancy (born 26 Aug 1746) and this one, apparently born on 16 Jul 1749. To confuse matters, according to FindaGrave.com, the Richard Owings born on 26 Aug 1746 (death date unknown) married Ruth Warfield. Until I learn otherwise, I am keeping this Richard Owings with b. 16 Jul 1749.

Richard Owings, b. Saturday, 16 July 1749 at 8 a.m.; d. 20 Jan. 1819; m. 1774 Ruth Howard WARFIELD (18 June 1756-25 May 1830), daughter of Dr. Joshua Warfield (d. 1769) a "practioner of physic" and mill owner and his wife Rachel (HOWARD) (1732-1792), sister of Ephraim Howard, apparently no relation to our Howards, but children of Henry Howard (1707-1773) and his wife Sarah DORSEY (daughter of John Dorsey who d. 1761). Richard inherited from his father 207 ac. of "Rich Meadow", "Robert's Chance", part of "Baker's Discovery" in Balt. Co., and 162 ac. "Mount Pleasant" and 33 ac. of "Strawberry Patch" in Frederick Co.[33] Richard was a farmer, miller, and merchant who took over the Warfield mill after Joshua's death. Holland says he bought his father-in-law's mill at Simpsonville in 1795 and changed its name to Owings Mill on the Middle Patuxent River. The village became known as Owingsville. His house, built in 1776, still stands. Richard signed the oath of fidelity 6 June 1776 and was appointed Capt. of Soldiers' Delight Battalion of the Baltimore Co. Militia, fought in the Revolution, and resigned 1779. Richard served in the Lower House in 1789 and 1790. His estate was valued at $69,139.08 and included 25 slaves, $52 worth of silver, over $1000 worth of flour at the mills. The estate was not settled until 1842, with a final balance of $10,468.33, not including his wife's estate and various bequests that were paid out.

Children: Beal, Mary "Polly", Samuel, James (b. 1780; d. 1 May 1859), Richard, Thomas, Joshua Warfield, Ann, Basil, and (Maj.) Henry Howard.

The following index was found in the Maryland Historical Society Library's Manuscript Division (MS. 1711) and, even though there is nothing to indicate what the purpose of the index, it was determined that those listed were Baltimore residents circa 1765. This determination was made from the compiler's familiarity with Baltimore families prior to the Revolution and also because this index was found with the remnants of a Baltimore Debt Book for 1765 and 1766. This is not an index to the debt book because the highest page number in the book is 109 while the highest page number in the index is 58. The index is, nonetheless, a 'finding list' for early Baltimore."

Revolutionary War soldier gets his due
Grave site cleaned up at Shelby Campus

By Martha Elson

The Courier-Journal



Nearly 200 years after Revolutionary War soldier Benjamin Lawrence was buried in eastern Jefferson County, he has been rediscovered by a Desert Storm veteran who is making sure Lawrence is honored.

The family cemetery in which Lawrence was buried is near the back entrance to the University of Louisville's Shelby Campus off Whipps Mills Road, next to homes in Bellemeade. It is encircled by an old stone wall and an 8-foot-tall, locked chain-link fence.



Navy veteran Ken Nichter of Fern Creek, a U of L hazardous-materials technician and a Cub Scout leader, happened upon the site during a geocaching hunt at the campus last summer.

He and a colleague were looking for a film canister stashed in a tree next to the cemetery during a scavenger hunt-type game played with portable global positioning system devices.

Nichter suggested a cleanup at the cemetery for an Eagle Scout project.

The cleanup has been completed, and on Saturday a new bronze "Patriot Marker" in the shape of an eight-pointed star will be installed at Lawrence's grave site by the Sons of the American Revolution.

"Working here at U of L, I was utterly ashamed to see a cemetery on our property in this bad of shape," Nichter said. The weeds were waist high and it was full of trash, he said. "To me that's disrespectful."

Nichter, a Cub Scout leader with Troop 56 at Fern Creek United Methodist Church, suggested the Eagle project to a Boy Scout with the troop, Ben Watson, 14, of Greenville, Ind.

On a recent Saturday, Ben and other Scouts and family members raked leaves and removed tree limbs from the cemetery. It was one of several Saturdays they worked there.

Ben said he was motivated by respect for Lawrence. "He's an important part of the history of Louisville," Ben said.

Nichter asked university library archivists for information about Lawrence and the cemetery. They found a 1978 article in a university publication written by John A. Dillon Jr., former vice president for academic affairs. He died last year.

Dillon wrote that the Daughters of the American Revolution had placed a name plaque on Lawrence's grave during the country's bicentennial in 1976.

The article said Lawrence was born in Maryland in 1741 and died in 1814. He came to Kentucky in 1798 and in 1800 purchased 377 acres in the area of today's Shelby Campus.

Dillon said Lawrence's children married into other leading families of the region, including that of Edward Dorsey Hobbs, founder of Anchorage.

"The ravages of time, of stone decay and especially of vandals have destroyed or obliterated most of the markings on the approximately 30 graves," Dillon wrote.

But he said he hoped the cemetery could be made presentable: "If one inherits a piece of the past as we did … it seems only right to attempt to maintain it for … future generations."

A parent in the troop is paying the $102 for the bronze marker, which will be put in the ground Saturday by Forrest Chilton of Middletown, president of the Sons of the American Revolution's Gov. Isaac Shelby Chapter in Shelbyville and a member of the group's Louisville-Thruston chapter.

"We're enjoying freedoms today that that gentleman helped make possible," Chilton said. He said he has marked about 30 graves in the state in the past 10 years, including one on the Fourth of July at a Lutheran cemetery off Watterson Trail in Jeffersontown.

Lucian Young, grounds superintendent for U of L, said that he didn't know a Revolutionary War soldier was buried in the cemetery and that he will try to improve its maintenance.

Noted events in his life were:

• Served: as a Lieutenant in the Maryland Militia during the Revolutionary War.

"JOPPA COURTHOUSE PETITION OF 1768

"The petitions for and against the removal of the county seat of Baltimore County from Joppa to Baltimore Town in 1768 are discussed at length in the Archives of Maryland, Vol. 61 (Appendix). Notices were posted in January, 1768 at the door of the courthouse in Joppa, at the church door of St. Paul's Parish, at the church door of St. Thomas' Parish, at the church door of St. John's Parish, at the church door of St. George's Parish, at the door of the chapel of St. George's Parish, at the door of the chapel of St. John's Parish, and at the house called St. Thomas' Chapel in St. Thomas' Parish, by Absalom Butler and sworn to before the Honorable Benjamin Rogers. Notices were printed in English and German. Tabulations indicate that 2,271 voted for the removal of the courthouse, and 901 voted against it. (It should be noted that some signatures are missing due to the disintegration of the paper, and there also appears to be some who signed more than once.) Five years later, Harford County separated from Baltimore County and set up its court house at Bush (Harford Town) in 1774 and at Bel Air in 1782.

Charles Wells (1745-1815)

Charles Wells, born 06 Apr 1745 son of Benjamin Wells and Temperance Butler, married 27 Dec 1764 Michal Owings who died on 17 May 1783, two months after the birth of her 10th child. He then married 24 Jul 1784 Elizabeth Prather, daughter of Charles Prather and Ruth Tannehill. They had 12 children making a total of 22 for Charles. The 20th was named "Twenty Wells" b: 23 Nov 1798 and was described in her father's will. (also mentioned below) as "a helpless child". His 3rd child, Temperance Wells b: 01 Sep 1769 m: 1) Nathaniel Wells (b: 01 Apr 1762) and thus formed one of the Big Wells-Little Wells family bonds. Nathaniel Wells was a son of Alexander Wells and Leah Owings.

Sistersville [West Virginia]
"Charles Wells also had his ties with a town called Sistersville. The exact year that Charles Wells, the first settler of prominence, arrived in the area which is now called Sistersville, is not known. In 1800, he had surveyed a tract of 200 acres on the Ohio River. Charles Wells was a man of prominence, who was involved with the Virginia State Legislature between 1789 and 1810. Sometime around 1802, Wells left Wellsburg in a flatboat and floated down the Ohio River to settle one mile below where Sistersville now exists. In his cargo was the machinery for a horse mill which he established. He built a log cabin just south of where the Sistersville Golf Course is today.

"On May 9, 1813, he acquired four hundred acres of land on which Sistersville and close residential area is located. Soon after the first court of Tyler county was held in his home, Charles Wells died in 1815. His grave has this inscription: "Charles Wells, born April 6, 1745; died April 6, 1815: aged 70 yrs. and ten days; a native of Baltimore County Maryland; immigrated to Ohio County, Virginia, 1776. He was a practical farmer and the father of twenty-two children, two wives, ten by the first and twelve by the second."

"His will provided for each living member of his family. In 1815, the Wells sisters, (Sarah and Delilah Wells Grier) laid out the town on the land which they had inherited. Sistersville hence got its name from the seventeenth and eighteenth children of Charles Wells. The town was incorporated Feb. 2, 1839, under the name Sistersville and in 1845, the municipal government was established.

"Charles died April 16,1815 in Baltimore County, MD."

"JOPPA COURTHOUSE PETITION OF 1768

"The petitions for and against the removal of the county seat of Baltimore County from Joppa to Baltimore Town in 1768 are discussed at length in the Archives of Maryland, Vol. 61 (Appendix). Notices were posted in January, 1768 at the door of the courthouse in Joppa, at the church door of St. Paul's Parish, at the church door of St. Thomas' Parish, at the church door of St. John's Parish, at the church door of St. George's Parish, at the door of the chapel of St. George's Parish, at the door of the chapel of St. John's Parish, and at the house called St. Thomas' Chapel in St. Thomas' Parish, by Absalom Butler and sworn to before the Honorable Benjamin Rogers. Notices were printed in English and German. Tabulations indicate that 2,271 voted for the removal of the courthouse, and 901 voted against it. (It should be noted that some signatures are missing due to the disintegration of the paper, and there also appears to be some who signed more than once.) Five years later, Harford County separated from Baltimore County and set up its court house at Bush (Harford Town) in 1774 and at Bel Air in 1782.

"AN INDEX OF SOME BALTIMORE RESIDENTS IN 1765

The following index was found in the Maryland Historical Society Library's Manuscript Division (MS. 1711) and, even though there is nothing to indicate what the purpose of the index, it was determined that those listed were Baltimore residents circa 1765. This determination was made from the compiler's familiarity with Baltimore families prior to the Revolution and also because this index was found with the remnants of a Baltimore Debt Book for 1765 and 1766. This is not an index to the debt book because the highest page number in the book is 109 while the highest page number in the index is 58. The index is, nonetheless, a 'finding list' for early Baltimore."

Hauntings at Woodlawn Cemetery (from http://www.forgottenoh.com/Counties/Lawrence/woodland.html ) :

"Woodland Cemetery in Ironton is said to be haunted by the ghost of a young woman whose abusive husband killed her by throwing her down a flight of stairs. A life-sized statue of her stands above her grave, and a handprint appears on its cheek even after the cheek has been sandblasted. The statue is supposed to be warm all the time, even in the coldest months.

"Woodlawn is also said to be home to the ghost of a Russian ballerina, who is entombed in one of the family mausoleums. Her likeness is carved into the mausoleum. On nights with full moons, it is said, you can see her dancing outside her final resting place.

"Dr. Joseph W. Lowry also haunts Woodland, seeking vengeance for his murder and mutilation. Dr. Lowry is often seen with his mother, who died from a broken neck when she was thrown from her carriage by a spooked horse. They walk together toward the cemetery gates but never make it past the highway bridge. "

Research Notes: Eliza Smith McMunn's lineage is dependent upon data obtained from Rod Blackman via www.familysearch.org 8/26/06. Appears to be well researched.

"(DBJ's sister, Dorothy Peters, was under the impression that Margaret was a cousin of Samuel Clemens' [Mark Twain's mother or one of his sisters.]

---------
Grandson DeWayne B. Johnson wrote about Grandmother Talbot (Margaret Burrows Talbot) thus on 8/17/1986:

"My vague recollection, substantiated by I know not what, is that on one occasion when my family was visiting the ranch [in North Platte, Nebraska] Grandmother Talbot and I got mired in quick sand and she held me aloft as we sank into the gooey substance. needless to say, we were rescued, or I wouldn't be able to write this way to you today.

"Folklore has it also that she was gifted by remarkable superhuman strength on an occasion when a wagon collapsed on one of her sons and she lifted the entire load by the wagon axle until he could be pulled free. An impossible task under ordinary circumstances.

"I remember the smells of her farm kitchen and helping with the churning of butter. We trimmed the wicks of the kerosene lanterns. A small kitchen garden seemed always to be producing some good things to eat. I don't remember her passing."

Research Notes: From FamilySearch.org

Death Notes: Obituary from Long Beach newspaper about 30 June 1942:
Mrs. Lula Mae Johnson, 49, of 2415 East Eleventh Street died last night at a local hospital. She had been a resident of Long Beach for a year, coming here from Burbank, where she had lived 11 years. She had previously lived in Nebraska. Surviving are two sons, Clifford of Burbank and DeWayne of Long Beach; a daughter, Miss Dorothy Johnson of Long Beach; four brothers, George Talbot of Burbank, Freeman and Ralph Talbot of North Platte, Neb., and Kenneth Talbot of Montana; two sisters, Mrs. Maude Mulholland of Omaha and Mrs. Lena Green of Polk, Neb., and two grandchildren.
The funeral will be Friday at 11 a.m. at the Powell Mortuary, Burbank, with interment at Grandview Cemetery, Glendale. Local arrangements will be directed by B. W. Coon Funeral Home.

General Notes: From DeWayne B. Johnson's book "I Have Met a Lot of Generals," 2007:

"I remember her heating gladirons in the oven and ironing clothing and linens by the light of kerosene lanterns. That same oven turned out freshly baked bread unlike any found in the markets of today...

"My mother played the piano for pleasure--hers and the family's. I can also hear the tinkling notes of 'Angel Voices Ever Near'--and weep at the memory.

"She died in 1942 at age 49 in Long Beach, Calif. She should be remembered for many things (pecan pies!), but a couple of memories stand out.

"There were the Saturday night family baths in that big galvanized tub in the kitchen, filled with hot water from the top of the wood stove. My turn came late and the water was fairly well saturated with [grime] of the weeke when my turn arrived. I never saw my parents as they bathed spared major destruction."
---------
Son DeWayne B. Johnson wrote of his mother, Lula Mae, on 8/17/1986:

"The 12 years of widowhood -- it seems a short time now but a long time then in the context of a boy growing through the teens -- for my mother were mostly years spent scraping to stay alive, taking in boarders, working on my uncle's [George M. Talbot's] dairy ranch, slaving at Jergen's soap factory. She even worked for a time as cook and housekeeper for the movie stars Frances Dee and Joel McCrea.

"Very soon after Alex's death the 37-year-old widow, three children, cousin Owen Mulholland made their way across country in the Model A Ford open touring car to California, Burbank. We came at the invitation of Uncle George M. Talbot, owner of the Talbot Dairy.

"Of that trip, the rust-orange dust accumulated while crossing Arizona evokes the strongest memory. There were flat tires, how many I have no way of recalling...

"Lula and Aunt Fannie Talbot belonged to the Bon Ami social club, primarily devoted to bridge. (The tagalong youngsters popped popcorn and played street games: tag, run sheep run, hide and seek, totally inocuous by today's standards.) Most of the Bon Ami members were married couples. It was that group that constituted the bulk of Lula's contacts, leading to the job at Jergens soap and to acquaintanceship with widower Frank Joanis, a Burbank grocer.

"Their dating continued for several years until Joanis quite suddenly married another woman whom he had recently met.

"The move to Long Beach was occasioned by supposed house maid opportunities that never materialized...

"My mother died at 49, the victim of a fad starvation diet that was supposed to reduce the size of a goiter, more imaginary than real (Real enough but of no consequence.)

"She was a loving mother, ill-equipped to help a young man, Clifford, and a growing boy, DeWayne, to understand the changes in their male bodies...

"To put things a bit into historical perspective, World War II was well along when Lula died. The Japanese raid on Pearl Harbor had occurred six months previous, Dec. 7, 1941. Lorna and I were married on Aug. 22, 1942, soon after her death in June."

Lula married Alexander L Johnson,200 219 227 228 son of John Jacob Johnson 200 210 229 230 and Bodil Marie Jensen,200 231 232 on 14 Feb 1912 in Grand Island, Hall, Nebraska, United States.

The cause of his death was Heart attack resulting from ptomaine poisoning. Other names for Alexander were Alex Johnson and Alexander Johnson.

Marriage Notes: According to their son DeWayne, they were married on Valentine's Day. Alex's obituary gives the year as 1912.

Noted events in their marriage were:

• Alt. Marriage: 14 Feb 1911.

Death Notes: From obituary in Newman Grove, Nebraska, newspaper: "The community was shocked and saddened Friday morning by the news of the sudden death of Alex Johnson while he was visiting relatives at North Platte. Mr. and Mrs. Johnson and family left here on Saturday, May 24 for a visit with her sister and her family at North Platte. On Thursday Mr. Johnson was taken very sick with ptomanine [sic] poisoning. A physician was called and he began to improve. Friday morning he was able to be up, but complained of a headache and was lying down. Mrs. Johnson had gone to another room to get some medicine for his headache and was gone only a very short time but when she returned he had passed away. Physicians were called, but could do nothing, death being due to a sudden heart attack."

General Notes: Occupation: Carpenter. From obituary in Newman Grove, Nebraska newspaper: "...They established their home in Newman Grove [in 1912] and have resided her continuously ever since. During these years he has built many of the buildings in both the town and vicinity and was considered a thorough conscientious workman, of pleasant and kindly disposition of whom only good was spoken."

From DeWayne B. Johnson's book "I Have Met a Lot of Generals," 2007:

"(The 'L' in my father's name was not an initial because that was the 'name' and hence takes no period.)...

"Today the mini-park near downtown [Newman Grove] includes the bandstand where my father played oboe in the town band...

"That is the man I tagged along with to his woodshop down near the granary. From that woodshop I still smell the gragrant homemade glues in their heating pots, I see the wood grains from rare specimens that went into carefully crafted table tops, bowls, cabinetry, and hear the scrabbling of tiny rodent feet fleeing for cover when the doors we opened.

"I tagged along as he walked the streets in town, greeted heartily by everyone he met. I know now that as a carpenter he built many of the buildings, homes, in town and surrounding vicinities."

DeWayne B. Johnson wrote of him on 8/17/1986:

"His hands were heavily wrinkled, tanned, scarred; his fingernails were ragged and never seemed quite rid of the residue of the day's labors. The brown, blood-clot areas under the nails were evidence of the beating the hands took as he hammered, pried, used his sinewy strength to build homes, schools, churches, and his artistic touch on fine cabinetry, delicate inlaid wooden trays, a variety of carved or lathe-turned items that would today be labeled 'examples of wood artisans, Early American Primitive to Post-World War I.'

"This carpenter's hands were gentle. To a small boy's hands they were tremendous, warm and snug retreats during proud walks on the streets of Newman Grove, Nebraska, where Alexander L Johnson was known far and wide as 'Alex.' (The 'L' had no period' it stood for nothing. To those who insisted it had to stand for 'something,' a concession was made: Lloyd, or possibly Loyd. One 'L' or two, it made no difference because truly it stood for nothing.

"I remember those hands as he warmly shook hands of others during those prized walks: Alex was clearly loved, respected by everyone, those townfolks with the funny foreign-sounding names...

"It flits through my mind to recall his hands, the dancing fingers as he played the oboe in the town band during its summertime concerts in the park band shell. And the strong, mascuiline right hand and the convincingly feminine left hand as 'Alex' costumed himself half male and half female for some annual celebration and parade down Main Street.

"Alex and his skills were in great demand; it is likely that some of the rural schools he built -- some of them single-handedly -- still stand today in some corners of Nebraska where Alex Johnson has long been forgotten. And Alex Johnson's houses absolutely remain, with their fashionable gingerbread of the time, and the curved staircases with their fancy railings, the hardwood floors, the weighted window sashes, and the trademark cabinetry.

"Alex had a hand in building the brick schools of Newman Grove, primary grads and high school For a short period he even taught wood shop at the high school (probably as a substitute teacher)...

"The lights went out for a 10-year-old boy on a spring day in 1930 when his father died in a farm house at North Platte, Nebraska.

"The bewilderment remains to this day -- one day so much alive, so much enjoying the fishing, the catching, the eating, and the next day quiet whispers, somber tip-toeing so as not to disturb. (The doctor surmised the death was caused by ingesting spoiled fish.) The return to Newman Grove on a bright Sunday morning, the church bells ringing, and still the 10-year-old could not understand."

Research Notes: Middle initial L does not stand for anything. It is simply L without a period. It may not be on his birth certificate.

Excerpts from obituary in Newman Grove weekly newspaper, fully quoted in a letter to daughter Janine Johnson 8/17/1986, p. 4:

According to DeWayne B. Johnson 8/17/1986: "Son Ralph was something of the farm foreman and the rest of the siblings battled over the smallish estate, contending it was unfair of Ralph to have taken advantage of the situation to assume control of the ranch."

D. B. Johnson further writes: "The forks of the Platte River come together at North Platte, Nebraska, and part of the bottom land of the Talbot Ranch was divided by the river. My vague recollection, substantiated by I know not what, is that on one occasion when my family was visiting the ranch Grandmother Talbot and I got mired in quick sand and she held me aloft as we sank into the gooey substance. needless to say, we were rescued, or I wouldn't be able to write this way to you today."

General Notes: From DeWayne B. Johnson's book "I Have Met a Lot of Generals," 2007:

Big brother Cliff was an eagle scout and knew 'everything.' He taught DeWayne, five years his junior, how to tell time. He shoed him the ropes, literally, in swinging from a cable attached to a high limb and jumping what seemed to be great distances from the high bank into the side yard of the frame house recently built by father, Alex. And typing of knows, Boy Scout style. Club house secrets in the musty storm cellar well-stocked with canned fruits and vegetables. Shelves of home brew: Rood beer! An open door to friends. In particular Cliff knew how to bury potatoes in a hollow in the ground, cover them with rocks, which in turn are covered with fragrant brush, dried leaves, heavier sticks to create larger embers..."

----------
From DeWayne B. Johnson on 15 Jun 2010:

I think my nickname "Doc" dates back at least 75 years, perhaps to 1935. I was 15 years old. My older brother Clifford and I worked on my uncle's (George M. Talbot Dairy) dairy ranch in Burbank. Neither of us milked cows but we did almost everything else -- washing bottles, pasteurizing and bottling milk, churning of buttermilk, pitching hay, mucking out the muck, and much more. Clifford called me "Doc" and I called him "Joe." Uncle George had a hay ranch out east (?) of Lancaster and pasture land down near Irvine. I rode mules and horses in the course of my work. Fell off more than once, brushed off by low-hanging branches. Otherwise, I am no horseman!

Clifford's nickname never stuck, but mine remained with me even up to today! I earned a real doctorate at UCLA in mass communications and education in 1955. Throughout my professional career as a journalist and professor of journalism, my colleagues and students have hailed me as "Doc." They still do. It feels good to be one of them and not an outsider!

I run the risk of bragging a bit -- two Pulitzer Prizes with a select few on the LATimes editorial staff, and twice honored by the California Publishers Association as THE outstanding professor of journalism in the state of California. (Oh, I am shameless!) So I may be something of a legend, my ego says, but that truly remains to be seen.
