"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.

Is this the Thomas Worthington listed in this source?

From the book Inhabitants of Baltimore County 1763-1774 by Henry C. Peden, Jr., Westminster, Maryland, 1989, pp. 13-16:

"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."

The town of Wellsburg, West Virginia, was named after Charles Wells. Its name was originally Charlestown, after Charles Prather.

From http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=pprokasy&id=I11032:
"Charles and Michal moved to Ohio County in Virginia (which became Brooke County in West Virginia) later to Tyler County, WV. He was a patriot who took the Oath of Allegiance and Fidelity and is listed in D.A.R. Patriot Index, Patriotic Service, Virginia. After the death of Michal, Charles married Elizabeth Prater and, with her, had thirteen more children."

From RootsWeb.com, William Akin, 7/25/2006 :

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.

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

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.
