Surry County, North Carolina Early Records

From:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surry_County,_North_Carolina


History

The county was formed in 1771 from Rowan County. It was named for the county of Surrey in England, birthplace of William TryonGovernor of North Carolina from 1765 to 1771.
In 1777 parts of Surry County and Washington District (now Washington County, Tennessee) were combined to form Wilkes County. The first permanent courthouse was established at Richmond in 1779, what is now the modern-day Old Richmond Township in Forsyth County near Donnaha. However, in 1789 the eastern half of Surry County became Stokes County, thus making the Richmond site unusable for either county. In 1790, the county seat was moved to Rockford where it remained for over half a century. In 1850 the half of the county's remaining territory south of the Yadkin River became Yadkin County. The town of Dobson was established in 1853 to be the new county seat.

Shaws from Henry County (now Patrick) Va. south and joined the troops under the command of General Greene in N.C. Guilford County near a ford on Haw River called the High Rock in the month of March 1781 shortly after the engagement at Guilford Courthouse – that he was marched south across the Yadkin into the state of South Carolina down to Camden – that his term of service expired a day or two beforehe arrived at Camden when his Captain talked of returning to Va., but being told by his higher officers that he and his men had better have remained at home and planted their corn, and by the said officers being requested and encouraged to continue with the troops until they should arrive at Camden his Capt. (Shaw) marched his men on and assisted in giving the American troops possession of Camden. Whence he was marched home and dismissed, but received no written discharge– that he had been on service in this tour three months–That shortly after his return home this affiant further states he was drafted and marched under the command of Captain Jonathan Hamby and Major John Ward, (whom he met at Salisbury) south thro the state of N.C. into S.C. crossing the Dan, the Yadkin, the Cataba [sic: Catawba], the Broad, the Tiger [sic: Tyger], the Enoree, & the Saluda River and joined the troops under General Greene engaged in the Siege of Ninety Six– that he continued to assist the troops in the siege until the British were reinforced with troops sent up from Charleston under Lord Rawdon as he believes, when the Americans were repulsed and forced to abandon the siege and retreat in which several skirmishes took place the British pursuing until the Americans crossed BroadRiver– that he thinks he recollects seeing at Ninety Six Col.

Dear Sir
I herewith enclose to you the claim of Mary Going widow of William Going, I am in hopes that there is no informality attached to it. If there is any evidence wanted to establish her claim you can inform me when you take up her case.
In the case of Lydia Ayres it is something surprising: Mr. Edwards, Comm. heretofore decided against her on account of her husband Elihue Ayres having charged in his declaration of tour of service for six months and two days as a sergeant under Capt. Martin for which the Comm. Edwards says no one tour of which corresponds with any service in the militia of North Carolina known to this department, and regrets her claim because she has not produced proof of her husband service notwithstanding her husband drew a pension for the same alleged service, and it seems that you regret it on account of her not being a widow at the time of the act of 1838 was ___? of ___lect r__? I should like very much that you would reconsider her case again.

States, as the promise of land bounty made by Congress to the officers & soldiers of the Revolutionary army applies to such only as engaged for the term of “during the war”& actually served to the close thereof.
In answer to the inquiry relative to the right to bounty land of John Huntsman alleged to have been a Serg’t in the Virg line in the Revolutionary year?, I have to acquaint you that his name is not returned on the record of the Virg line on file in this office, among those, entitled to bounty lands from the U.

I have the honor,

  2. I am a descendant of James Goin. His daughter Pencie Anna (also listed as "Persia" in James' will) was married to Jessie Melvin Hooker. Jessie and other members of the Hooker family applied for the enrollment to the Eastern Band of Cherokee on the Guion Roll but were not accepted. Does anyone have any other information on that? Does anyone know if this James Goin was Lumbee? Thank you!

    Aug - Nov 1780 James M. LEWIS of Davidson Co TN deposed in 1802 that "in the latter part of the summer or fall of 1780 Wm T LEWIS was robed by one John GOINS and one Nicholas COMBS…" Mrs. Isebel BACON of Hawkins TN deposed in 1804 that "Wm T. LEWIS [Jr.] was robbed by one John GOWINS and one Nicholas COMBS. GOWINS a Brother in Law to Wm RIDGE and COMBS a nephew to said RIDGE…" (William Ridge Estate File)

    Note: Shortly after the above event, Nicholas COMBS enlisted as a patriot, and then returned to Shenandoah Co, VA where he resided in the early 1780s, and by 1796-7 in Sullivan Co, TN. James Martin LEWIS was another s/o William T. & Sarah MARTIN Lewis (and h/o Mary Boswell HERNDON). See also the 1787 Greenville SC power of attorney from John COMBS of Washington NC [now TN] to John MOLIN of Greenville SC, witnesses Allen GOWEN, John GOWEN (unidentified, but possibly John COMBS, s/o William & Sitha STACY Combs) - either that or the Hog Thief was on the run (see below). Also Note: Specifically how John GOWIN was brother-in-law to RIDGE remains unknown; however, a Thomas GOANS was among those at the estate sale of William's father, Thomas RIDGE in 1755 (Probably also a.k.a. GOIN, GOING, etc. and possibly GUINN, GWINN) A Thomas GOINS is found in the records of Surry NC and an Allen GUIN (a possible var. sp.)

  5. These names interest me. I am researching the Owens family of Pike County, Kentucky and am trying to determine if Tobitha Kee who married Dudley Kee was actually Tabitha Kee who ended up marrying John G. Farmer. If anyone has any information that helps sort this out either way I would appreciate it. Our Tabitha was married in April 27, 1821 in Grayson Co., Va. Some earlier records indicate that a Tobitha Kee who would have been the right age at the time actually was married 5 years earlier to a Dudly Goin. I have been reading and it is highly probable that he was a mullatto, so it is feasible she was as well. JCOwens4512@aol.com
