Generation No. 1



1. JOHN1 SMALL was born Abt. 1639, and died Abt. 1700 in Nansemond, Virginia?. He married UNK 1660 in Nansemond, Virginia. She was born 1644, and died Unknown in Nansemond, Virginia?.

Notes for JOHN SMALL:
Transcriptions of Quaker records, both in Hinshaw and in actual men's meeting notes taken from Hege Library are exactly as spelled in these documents.

Various sources list her name as Mrs. John Small, or Ann Small, and a woman of that name is found in Quaker records. However, there is no source that confirms that she is the spouse of the earliest person of the surname Small found in Virginia records. It is known that he had a spouse, un-named, and that they had at least 3 known children.

Many also alledge that this family migrated from Deleware or other New England locations and perhaps is related to the Edward Small line found in Maine and Massachusetts, this is utterly false. No record exists that links the Virginia family to that of Edward or John Small of New England.

Hinshaw 6:39
The Society of Friends was first planted in Virginia on the Eastern Shore and then in the region south of the lower James River which area is penetrated by the Nansemond and Elizabeth Rivers. All the meetings in the counties there are closely related by both ties of blood and organization. The same families which first settled Isle of Wight County, later moved on into Nansemond, and in the period 1660-63 almost every Quaker family sent members to become the first settlers of the state of North Carolina. Wheeler in his "History of North Carolina", says, "The first permanent settlement (i.e. in Perquimans Co.) was formed after the expulsion of the Quakers from Virginia in 1662". So one should not be surprised to find the same family names in all these places.

In 1681 the John Small family was transported to "Nanzemund" (Nansemond) in Virginia by the Parker Brothers, merchants. (No record can be found for this assertion)
The children of this family unit are located several places, and only list these four in Virginia records. There may have been earlier or later ones depending on other records, its likely they had more than these, but no reliable source has been found to establish they had more children.

An entry on LDS page 29,398 indicates a marriage for John Small to Mrs. John Small in 1665 in Nansemond Co., and a birth date of (1644) for Mrs. Small (Mrs. Small is proported to have been named Ann, there is no positive proof of this name.)

Early family record reads as follows:
John Small is found in VA as early as 1683, where on the 10th day of the 4th month he with others witnessed a marriage and signed a marriage certificate. Also on the 17th day of the 2nd month 1688, he witnessed and signed the marriage certificate of Leavin Bufkin and Dorothy Newby. Ann Small also witnessed the marriage and signed.

Excerpted from American Quaker Genealogy by William Wade Hinshaw, Vol.6 p.8
The first surviving record of a session of the Yearly Meeting is dated 1702, the seventh month. The representatives to this session were: Samuel Newton, Thomas Page, Richard Ratcliff, Isaac Ricks, Edward Thomas, John Bates, John Woodson, Joseph Pleasants, Nathan Newby, John Small, John Porter, William Scott Sr. , Robert Jordan, Henry Wiggs, John Murdor (Murdaugh), John Jordan, Daniel Sanbourne, Charles Fleming, Robert Hughts, Gerrard Robert Ellyson, Joseph Galister, Benjamin Small, James Bates, James Jordan, Matthew Jordan, John Pleasants, Thomas Lankford and Sameul Jordan. Daniel Sanbourne acted as clerk and Sarah Sanburn (Sanbourne) signed papers on behalf of the womens meeting and to signify their unity.

As this first session ends it is ordered that the care and the management of those things above mentioned is left to two friends of every monthly meeting: John Tuck and Sameul Cornwall for Surry, Jordan and Richard Ratcliff for Chuckatuck, John Small and Nathan Newby for Nansemond... and here it is written by the committee appointed to copy the minutes that the record is not further intelligible.......etc.

This record is very likely mention of John's two sons, Matt and Benjamin rather than the elder, but this is not proved or disproved.

"Quaker records prior to this were distroyed by fire. Fragments of the papers were copied, there were also originial books which escaped the fire. The conclusion of this matter is: we accept the year 1672 as the year of the organization of the Virginia Yearly Meeting."
Whether John Small was a member of this congregation at that time is unknown, but for him to be elected a delegate in 1702 would indicate that he had a position within the organization sometime prior to that time.

Notes for UNK:
LDS lists Mrs. John Small's birth as 1644 in Nansemond Co., VA page #29,398.
Ann Grove does not appear in LDS VA records married to John Small, but does appear several times as Mrs. Ann Small. All records list the marriage in Nansemond Va. (See marriage notes)

Ann Small is listed in Chuckatuck as a witness to a marriage, there is no concrete proof that this Ann Small is the wife of John Small. She could have been his daughter, or sister just as easily.

Marriage Notes for JOHN SMALL and UNK:
Source:
LDS library microfish of Virginia page 29,400 lists the marriage as (1666). Other records show the marriage as being 1660, another in 1665. All indicate the marriage was performed in Nansemond Virginia, he was of Nansmond VA. The record in the LDS library lists his wife as Mrs. Ann Small, does not list her as Ann Grove. Hinshaw Quaker records refer to her as Ann Small , it is unknown if this is her married name or if she was sister or daughter to John Small

Generation No. 2



2. JOHN2 SMALL (JOHN1)2,3 was born Feb 16, 1663/64 in Nansmond Co., VA, and died Abt. 1736 in Nansmond Co., VA4. He married ALCE HOLLOWELL Dec 25, 1688 in Elizabeth River, Isle of Wight Co., VA, daughter of THOMAS HOLLOWELL and ALCE. She was born Feb 16, 1663/64 in West Branch, Eliz. River, Nansemond Co., VA, and died Aft. Jan 24, 1715/16 in Nansmond Co., VA.

Notes for JOHN SMALL:
Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy, by William Wade Hinshaw, Vol 6 p.30 lists the marriage as follows:
12-25-1688/89 Alce, dt Alce, Nansemond; m John Small

Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy, Chuckatuck MM p. 36
Small
1688/9 12, 25 John Small, s John, Nansemond; m in her mother's house, Alce Hollowell, dt Alce, Elizabeth River

LDS Virginia microfishe indicates Johns birth was in 1668 in Nansmond VA and the marriage to Alice comes from six sources within the index but all indicate the 12-25-1688, some indicate a different location for the marriage, eg. her mothers house in Norfolk, Nansemond, and Isle of Wight. One entry lists the marriage date as 2-25-1688 which indicates the number one was left off the entry giving it a February (month 2) versus a December (month 12) date.
The listings also give her name two ways, Alice, and Alce. Quaker records indicate her name was Alce after her mother. Alce is a nickname for Allison, and likely correct. Hinshaw records give it three ways; Alice, Alce, Alise

The Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy by William Wade Hinshaw Volume 6, page 8 indicates John Small and Nathan Newby (Brother in law, or son-in-law?) were representatives of the first Yearly Meeting from Nansemond county. This would indicate his membership as a Quaker and the Small family is listed numerous times in their records. He was appointed July 1702. Page 37 lists the date as July 23, 1702.

Quaker Marriage Certificates by Gwen B. Bjorkman
p. 116 John, Matthew and Benjamin Small were witnesses to the marriage of Richard Ratcliff Jr. s/o Richard of Terascoe neckes in Chuckatuck 14, 9m, 1706

The children of John and Alce moved to North Carolina in 1736-37. And it can be assumed that this was after the death of the parents, as John, Benjamin and Thomas all appear in Quaker records in Perquimans County at that time. Joseph and wife Ann Owen do not appear in Quaker records in NC, but he died 1754-55 after writing his will in Chowan County. It is very unlikely that the children would all move away from aged parents before their death. I therefore place their death as circa 1735, likely Nansemond Co. VA since no record appears for them in NC.


Reference to location of John Small
Richard PARKER - b. about 1677, Nansemond Co., VA; d. about 1752, Chowan Co., NC. Son of Richard PARKER and Miss PENDER. Lived in that portion of Nasemond Co., VA that became part of Chowan Co., NC in 1728, and appointed a justice for Chowan Precenct 1731. He received patents between 1718 and 1749 to just over 1000 acres in Upper Parish of Nansemond and near the head of Bennett's Creek in what is now Gates Co., NC. (Virginia State Land Office, Patent Book 7 1679-1689, pages 93-94
[By a series of boundary changes, portions of the described land was successively in Nansemond Co., VA, Chowan Co., NC in 1728, Hertford Co., NC in 1759 and Gates Co., NC in 1779. In terms of a modern map, the land was located on the western edge of the Great Dismal Swamp, near the present town of Corapeake, Gates Co., NC.]
The Nansemond area (named after the Nansemond Indian Tribe) lay alongside the seafaring area of Albemarle Sound, an inlet of the Atlantic Ocean which was frequented by ships and trading vessels traveling between England and the Caribbean/ American colonies. Nansemond county, VA later became extinct
and was replaced in large part, as I understand it, and it is confusing, by Chowan County, North Carolina in later times.)

Will dated Sep. 22, 1749, and admitted to probate in Chowan Co., NC in Apr. 1752. One of his wives died in the summer of 1728, but his will indicates he was survived by another. Richard's lengthy will mentions 14 surviving children, and reveals that he, like his father and grandfather, acquired much land during his lifetime. Since his youngest two sons received no real estate, it is possible that they had received land transfers previously. His children are listed below in the order they appear in his will. Probably married second a Miss SWAN, and possibly married a third time.

Richard Parker was evidently living on Property next to John SMALL, who is
mentioned in the following:

1681 Apr 23. To all people, etc. whereas, etc.... Now know ye that I, the said Sr. Henry Chisheley, Kt., his Majesties Deputy Governor, do give and grant unto Thomas, Richard and Frances Parker, the three sons of Richard Parker, dec'd. one thousand four hundred and twenty acres of land on the marsh adjoining, lying and being in the southern branch of Nansemond, beginning at a red oak standing on a point to the northward of Cranny Creek mouth and opposite to a small island called Cranny Isle and at Crain's ehancing, thence running down by the main branch side according to the several curvings and windings of the said branch 'till it comes to a great decayed white oak standing a little above the creek's mouth which is called Parker's Creek; thence south east crossing over the said creek twice and extending three hundred and twenty poles to John SMALL his own white oak, thence south west one hundred and eighty four poles to a small white oak being the beginning head of the Crosse Swampe Pattent and runs the due courses of the said Pattent First east north east two hundred poles to a small Gum, thence south south east three hundred and twenty poles to a small Ash by a Gum in a great reedy pocoson or inland swamp thence west south west two hundred poles to a small Gum thence north north west one hundred and sixty four poles to a marked Gum standing by a branch being in the head line of Hood neck pattent thence south west by west one hundred and forty six poles to a white oak standing by and towards the head of Cranny Creek.

Notes for ALCE HOLLOWELL:
Source:
Early Quaker Records in Virginia page 36 by Miles White lists birth
Hinshaw 6:30 lists birth

Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy, by William Wade Hinshaw; Vol. 6 p.36 states:
12-25-1688/89. John, s John, Nansemond; m in her mother's house, Alce Hollowell, dt Alce, Elizabeth River.

Two sources for Alice's birthplace. 2nd source indicates her birth as Lower MM, Chuckatuck, Nansemond, Virginia.

Her father and her siblings indicate she was born in Nansmond, VA

LDS has several listings for her marriage to John Small on 12-25-1688, at her mothers house in Norfolk, Elizabeth River Parish and Chuckatuck, Nansemond and Isle of Wight. These could all be correct if the monthly meeting was conducted at her mothers residence, which oftentimes this was done.

The Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy by William Wade Hinshaw lists her as having a meeting at her house, it does not list her husband on this page. It is assumed this was a women's meeting, therefore he was not present. He is listed as a representative at the 1702 yearly meeting. This could also have been her mother since they were both listed in records with the name spelled
Alce. The correct spelling is Alce, taken as being short for Allison, but Allison has never appeared in any records. Miles White lists her name only one way, Alce. Hinshaw uses various spellings, and since White and Hinshaw both used the same records, Hinshaw is in error.

VA marriages p. 183 quote this marriage as source Hinshaw 6:33, 36.

Page 36 of Vol. 6 of the above record states that she and John, son of John of Nansemond were married in her mothers house, she is the daughter of Alce who lived on the Elizabeth River. The LDS record that states she was married in her mothers house also states it was in Norfolk.

Notes for BENJAMIN SMALL:
Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy, Vol.6
This record states that on 2-18-1701 he suffered the seizure of 220 lbs tobacco for priest's dues & church rates & 220 lbs "for you fine by Capt. Havell"
These fines were commonly imposed upon Quakers by the established church in the area as a way of discouraging Quakers, fining them for not attending the established church and baptizing their children etc. It is also possible the fine was for holding or attending Quaker meetings.

Ch: of John Scott and Elizabeth Belson: William and Elizabeth, lists birth dates.
There is a conflict here with the birth dates of John, and his marriage date. It is exactly as written in Chuckatuck Monthly Meeting notes, The birth dates of the children indicate some sort of error, the childrens births are recorded as born immediately after the marriage, so it appears the birth of John and Elizabeth are not correct. John's marriage occurs the same year as his birth in Quaker records.

The Elizabeth Belson b. 8-31-1666 and married to Benjamin Small, and this one, are the same.

A Testimony from friends in Virginia, concerning ELIZABETH SMALL wife of Benjamin, of Nansemond County.

She was born the 31st of the sixth month 1666. Her parents Edmund and Elizabeth Belson, were pious friends and zealous for the truth, whose care in the education of their children, had the desired effect on this our much esteemed friend; for being obedient to the manifestation of divine light, it so improved a tender, affectionate and affable disposition, that she became qualified for and endowed with an excellent and acceptable gift in the ministry, so as suitably to dispense doctrine, edification and consolation to the churches.
She was very diligent in attending meeting of friends in this colony, even beyond what could be reasonably expected from so weakly a constitution, and was earnest in and much devoted to the cause of truth, greatly desiring the growth and prosperity thereof, saying, "She" could lay down her natural life for it, if "required." She was a woman of a generous and kind disposition, as well in helping the poor as entertaining of friends, saying (to such as were ready to think she would do more than her circumstances would admit of) that she hoped the Lord would so provide for her, that she should never want what was convenient, having never desired long life or riches for herself or children, but that they might live in his fear.

Page 47
She was taken ill the 21st of the seventh month 1717, being the first day of the yearly meeting at Chuckatuk, which gave opportunity to divers friends from different parts of the country to visit her, to whom the signified her peace of mind and submission to the divine will, saying among other things, "If the Lord has any more work for me to do, he can raise me up again; otherwise I am easy and freely resigned to his will." To a beloved relation she said, "Dear cousin, thou art bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh; live in the fear of the Lord, that every high thought may be brought down." To two friends belonging to a distant meeting which she had often visited she said, "I have not ceased to admonish you heretofore, and now again desire you would be valiant for the truth and walk steadily therein, and remember my dear love to friends of the meeting to which you belong. " She often spoke to friends, "To be steadfast in the truth;" And once to a public friend belonging to the same meeting, earnestly desiring him "To be valiant for the good cause." She told her son William, "She hoped that that day would be a good one to her, and said, "She had prayed for an early passage;" And accordingly she quietly departed the 25th of the seventh month aforesaid, aged fifty-two, a minister about 11 years.

Quaker records indicate 1689. This record will be used until another proof of exact date is found.

This family migrated from Virginia to North Carolina in May 1737, presenting a letter to Core sound Monthly Meeting in Carteret County from Joseph Newby. He was appointed in 1742 to fence in the graveyard. His brother John was to "fitt seats and windows for the women's meetings." He had been granted 100 acres in Carteret County located on the West side of Deep Creek Swamp by the council that met at Wilmington 9-25-1741. Another 200 acres was granted 9-23-1742 with a second 200 acres on the North side of Newport River granted 9-25-1742. At the time the Spanish threatened Beauford harbour in 1747/48 Benjamin and his son appeared on the list of men who appeared to defend the town and the harbor. They served four days.

Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy by Hinshaw, Vol 1, page 275 confirms the above information for the LDS, on May - 1737 Benjamin & family received on letter from Joseph Newby. Sent to Core Sound MM.

On 5-5-1748 Benjamin and his wife requested a certificate to remove elsewhere.
It is assumed that he left the Core Sound Monthly Meeting to attend a Meeting closer to his residance since this was the practice at that time. It is assumed that would have been the Carteret Meeting House.

Benjamin's children were born in North Carolina, the marriage is recorded in LDS as Virginia. The siblings of this marriage indicate marriages and children in NC.

NOTE: This source contains many errors, and he quotes as his source the book by Ruth Kline Ladd, (One Ladds Family) which has proven to contain major errors, and is not to be taken as a reliable source for anything other than the Ladd and Cleaver Family.

"Benjamin Small born about 1691 or 1692 in Virginia. He died in Carteret County, North Carolina in 1751 or 1752, leaving a will dated 11 month 30, 1751/2 which was probated in the Carteret County, March 1752 Court. He married, first, Mary who probably was Mary Knight. Mary died in 1743 and Benjamin remarried in 1750, reported by Core Sound Monthly Meeting, Miriam Albertson. She remarried at Carteret Meeting House 5 month 11, 1755, Joseph Stanton.

Benjamin Small and his family moved to North Carolina in 1737 presenting a letter to Core sound Monthly Meeting in Carteret county from Joseph Newby. He was appointed in 1742 to fence in the graveyard. His brother John was to 'fitt seats and windows for the women's meetings." He had been granted 100 acres in Carteret County located on the west side of Deep Creek Swamp by the Council that met at Wilmington 25 September 1741. Another 200 acres was granted 23 September 1742 with a second 200 acres on the north side of Newport river granted 25 September 1742. At the time the Spanish threatened Beauford harbour in 1747/8 Benjamin and his son appeared on the list of men who appeared to defend the town and the harbor. They served four days."

His book gives a little history on Benjamin Small, including his will. His will also reports, "I give to my son John Knite Small one feather bed, furneture, 2 cows...." This would support the suggestion that Benjamin's first wife was indeed a Knight, and her father probably John Knight, found in Quaker records.

The book further mentions the children of Benjamin Small and Mary as Sarah, died 1 month 6, 1757, Benjamin, Jonas, John Knight, and Amos. Sarah Small married at Carteret Meetinghouse about 1737 Thomas Jessup, Jr. son of Thomas and Rachel (Pease) Jessup. She was the mother of ten children and died in Guilford County 1 month 6, 1757 as recorded in the New Garden Monthly Meeting
records.

Also, in Abstract of Wills, 1690-1760, North Carolina, J. Byran Grimes,"Benjamin Small, Carteret County, January 11, 1751, March Court, 1752, sons Benjamin (plantation bought of David Baly) Jonas (land adjoining Benjamin) Amos (100 acres of land adjoining Thomas Jessop) John Knite Small (My manna plantation) Daughter, Sarah Jessop, Wife and Executrix: Miriam (would be 2nd
wife) Witnesses, Henry Stanton and Patience Bull."

Another source book titles,"One Ladd's Family, including Cousins Near and Far", located in the D.A.R Library, Washington, D.C. basically repeated the same information. Provided to me by Paul M. Terrill, 1719 North Washington Street, Danville, This record appears to do a fairly accurate work on the Ladd family, however, the allied family named Small in this book has considerable errors, which were based on inaccurate information and apparent guesses by the author. Instead of leaving a genealogy of the allied family of Small alone, the author attempted to guess as to whom the parents of known people were, and this has led to 30+ years of mis-information and confusion among researchers who used this book as a source, which has been proven to be false. Researchers who used this book as a reference did not check her sources, had they done so, they would have found her errors.

PAGAN CREEK MO. MTG., established 1737 when the Chuckatuck-Nansemond MM was divided. After 1752 it was known as the Black Water - Surry MM. It incorporated these counties: Nansemond, Surry, Sussex, Prince
George, Didwiddie, Isle of Wight, Amelia, and Southampton. AMONG ITS EARLIEST MEMBERS: PERKINS, BELSON, GROVE Dr. John Grove was a leader in this group. In 1678, Letters mentioning Pagan Creek were sent from Cumberland, England, and among the names mentioned were JOHN SCOTT, and WILLIAM SCOTT. Dr. John Grove's will mentions the meeting house built at Pagan Creek. 11 x Joseph2 SMALL [14901], born 1676 in Nansemond Co., VA.

According to Core Sound Monthly Meeting:
1737,5,-. Benjamin & fam. received on letter from Joseph Newby.
1748,5,5. Benjamin & wife requested certificate to remove elsewhere.

Hinshaw confirms his parents as John and Alce. (short for Allison?) many researchers assume this is mis-spelled and insert Alice. Miles White Quaker records specifically show both Alce and her mother Alce in records, he spells it no other way, and since he was only copying Chuckatuck records, was careful to spell exactly as the records read in his transcription.

Benjamin and his family had moved to NC in 1737 presenting a letter to the Core Sound MM in Carteret Co. from Joseph Newby. Benjamin was appointed in 1742 to fence in the church graveyard.

Robert G. Lewis narrative
"Benjamin Small, William Borden, and Henry Stanton were among the early Quaker settlers in Carteret County. William Borden, who was a shipbuilder, relocated from Newport, Rhode Island, in 1732 or 1733, and settled on Newport River, just west of Harlowe Creek. He established a shipyard on the river, reputedly near the mouth of Mill Creek. The Bordens were founding members of the Quakers' Core Sound Meeting House, which was probably located on the east side of Core Creek. William Borden's son, William Borden II, was one of the largest land owners in Carteret County, with 44,250 acres in 1784. Benjamin Small likely moved to the area from Chowan Precinct in 1737, he and his family being received at the May 1737 monthly meeting of the Core Sound Quakers. In 1739, he purchased land on the west side of Harlowe Creek at the mouth of Alligator Creek from Charles Cogdell."


Sept. 25, 1741 - Benj. Small was granted 100 acres in Carteret County on the W. side of Deep Creek Swamp about 3 Miles N. from Newport River, joining sd. swamp. (Note; Other land patents indicated that the land was near the head of Alligator Creek) (Patent Book 5, #2477, p. 140; CR IV, p. 602)

Sept. 25, 1742 - Benjamin Small patented 200 acres in Carteret County on the N. side of Newport river and W. side of Harlows Creek, joining Ben Small, Samuel Negus and Pacquernett's line. (PB 5, #2435, p. 130)

Mar. 21, 1743 - Jos Small was granted 100 acres in Chowan Co. (CR)

1747-48 - Benj. Small and his son were among the "Men on Duty at Town (Beaufort) and on the Banks, when the Enemy Lay in the Bay and had Taken Several Vessels." (Spanish Alarm)


The 1820 federal census of Carteret County between Core Creek and Newport showed William Bell and his family living between Jesse Hasket (sic) and Joseph Small.

The 1830 census of Harlowe Creek: Joseph Small, 30 - 40, headed one of the households next to William Bell and Burton Hardesty headed the other. Jesse Hasket and Sally Small (60 - 70 year-old mother of Joseph) lived between William Bell and Tamer Bell.

Notes for MARY KNIGHT:
Mary died in 1743, leaving Benjamin with young adult children. He remarried in 1750 to Mariam Albertson. Ben then died two years later in 1751 and his Will reads in part, "I give to my son John Knite Small one feather bed, furneture, 2 cows..." This supports the suggestion in LDS records that Benjamin was married to Mary Knight, and her father likely was John Knight, found in Quaker records.

mentions the children of Benjamin Small and Mary as Sarah, died 1-6-1757, children, Benjamin, Jonas, John Knight, and Amos. Sarah Small married at Carteret Meetinghouse about 1737 Thomas Jessup, Jr. son of Thomas and Rachel (Pease) Jessup. She was the mother of ten children and died in Guilford County 1-6-1757 as recorded in the New Garden Monthly Meeting records.

The marriage of Benjamin and Mary had to occur before 1736 when he was examined by Perquimans MM on his life and conversations, and definitely before he removed to Core Sound Carteret County in 1737. His known children were likely born in Virginia, except perhaps John Knight, who likely was born in Perquimans Co.

In Reply to: Re: SMALL, BENJAMIN b abt 1691 VA m KNIGHT d NC by Maurine Small Atkins of 1524

JOSEPH SMALL, BENJAMIN's brother, migrated to Chowan County, N.C., where he died in 1754. His eldest son Josiah married Sarah Rogerson, with whom he had Nancy, Rachel and Reuben. Nancy Small married Michael McKeil(McKell)in 1785. Their only child Josiah McKiel was born in 1786. Josiah was orphaned with the death of his father in 1802. Reuben Small,his uncle, was appointed his guardian. Josiah McKiel married Lydia Bond (would like to find her parents) and had sons William B. and James. Lydia died in about 1824, later Josiah married Hannah Benbury, widow of Edmund Benbury. They had a son named Henry, probably while traveling to Phillips County, Arkansas, where they settled. Josiah died in 1870. I think I just found a bunch of Small distant, distant cousins! Would love to compare notes. Janice McKiel Wallace

The abstracted will of Benjamin Sr., brother of Josiah would indicate that Josiah was deceased at the time of the writing of this will, and that Josiah had a son named Reuben to whom he willed the property, since Ben had purchased it from Reuben and was now dividing it among his own children. Reuben married December 22, 1792, therefore, Josiah likely died prior to that date.

The submitter of this information was one Helen Benac, 793 Pirates Rest Road, North Fort Myers, FL 33917. The date of birth for Charles and Abigail and their childen is this LDS IGI file. We have been unable to locate this lady and cannot vouch for the accuracy of these dates and are unsure whether they were taken from a family Bible or unpublished Quaker birth records.

Abigail White was daughter (acc. to Ancestral File) of Henry White who m. 10 July, 1681, Perquimans MM Demaris Morison. We have not located an authenticated source for the marriage date and her maiden name. Published records of Henry White in Hinshaw regarding the family of Henry White do not include a daughter Abigail. The Whites were in Perquimens and records show the two families well aquainted so such a marriage is logical but the evidence is not been found.

Notes for JOSIAH SMALL:
named in the Will of Benjamin Small Sr. dated 1-27-1820

Elizabeth J. Jones:
She was a daughter of Thomas and Temperance Jones, who lived in the Green Hall District, north of Edenton. Thomas died in 1822, and Temperance in 1824. After her father's death, she was given to the
guardianship of her brother-in-law, Josiah SMALL. Her sister Matilda Jones married Josiah in 1818; his father was Benjamin SMALL; the Smalls all had property in the Green Hall district (north of Edenton) and served as "captains" ofthe district, for militia purposes I assume, but also for purposes of tax collection it seems.
"Plea Dec. term 1824: To the worshipful the justices of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions aforesaid: The petition of John M. Jones, Henderson Jones, Josiah Small in right of his wife Matilda Josiah Small as Guar.d of James Elizabeth and August Jones, and John Blount as guardian of Sarah & Temperance Jones, and John M. Jones ad. Of Wm. Jones dec'd respectfully showeth. That Thomas Jones of the County of Chowan died intestate on the 26th Nov. 1822 propertied of a certain parcel of Negroes and being your
petitioners his heirs at Law your petitioners pray your worships that ?? persons be appointed to divide the said negores between your petitioners according to the act of Assembly in such cases made and provided." [from estate file]

Thomas Jones left to Temperance some 136 acres along the Machimicomack (sp.?) Creek. I think from my skimming through the estate papers that Thomas' property was valued (perhaps ambitiously by the lawyer bringing the lawsuit against Mr. Small) at $20,000.

"Thursday, Octo. 22nd, 1835
Under steam again at early day. Passage a slow one; passengers grumble.
Fare becoming every day worse. Much disturbed last night from the noise,
blackguardism and profanity of a few passengers -- evidently shameless and
abandoned blacklegs. Conversed with Mr. Satterfield about Alexandria; says
there is a fine opening for lawyers. C. died there this summer. Mr. Dunbar
living there; might have made a fortune if he had kept sober. About 1000
population; seat of Justice -- not increasing. Inhabitants obliged to leave
it for 3 to 4 months every summer -- from June to October.
Weather is very warm today. Stopt at the Town of Randolph, situated on the
2nd Chickasaw Bluff, in Tipton County, Tennessee. A new place -- great
anticipations entertained by its inhabitants of its future growth. Marshall
thinks it can never be great. Too far north for cotton. Make 1000 to 1200
lbs. per acre. Sometimes destroyed by frost -- bit this fall. About 400
inhabitants, wretched looking, sit about the wharfs. We are now opposite
the northern part of Arkansas. Large flocks of wild geese, swans and
pelicans to be seen on the sand flats.
At 10 o'clock, came to at Memphis, in Tennessee. A place of some note.
Here many emigrants from Virginia and North Carolina cross into Arkansas.
It is situated on a high bluff, very inconvenient to reach from the river.
Went ashore for half an hour to look at the town by star light. Appearance
not favourable. Hudgins being very unwell and anxious to get on shore, and
Scott having business there, they two and Farish left the boat, intending to
wait for my company at that place. Major Flournoy of Lexington, Ky., who
has purchased and settled near the mouth of White River, in Arkansas, also
stops there; also Mr. Obediah Small, living on the West Francis, 15 miles
from Helena. Mr. S. went from near Edenton, N. C.; lived in Alexandria 3
years. Says the lands for 40 or 50 miles around him are very fine; all
taken up, he thinks.
Friday, Octo. 23rd, 1835

The boat did not get far from Memphis before daylight. Weather warm,
uncomfortable, threatening rain. I am quite well. Paid fare from
Louisville to Helena, $20. Invited by Capt. Cardoza to visit him in New
Orleans, and by Mr. Satterfield to visit him at Alexandria, and by Mr. Small
to call at his house in Arkansas. Mr. S. says he knows Wm. R. Horner; that
he is doing a good law business. About 10 o'clock a.m. passed the steamboat
Geo. Colyer, from New Orleans to St. Louis. A fine, large looking boat."

LDS NC records show her birth and marriage to Thomas Jessop in 1736 in Perquimans Co., North Carolina, LDS NC page 22,673

Sources indicate Sarah's birth as 6-3-1717 and LDS records indicate she had a mother Mariam Albertson,(step mother), and Mary Knight, her natural mother. This is supported by Benjamin's Will written 11-30-1751. She was Christened on 6-3-1717 but it is not known if this was her birth date also.

It appears the families of Small and Jessup tie together with this individual. Down through the generations, the Jessup family married into the Smith family line through David Smith, ancestor of Martha Ruth Smith Small, my mother. This interesting link between the Small family, my fathers side, and Smith family, my mothers side, occured 189 years apart; (Sarah's birth of 1717 and Martha Ruth Smith Small's birth of 1906)

Exactly when Thomas Jessup moved from Perquimans County to Orange County (which later included Guilford County) is not certain.
Records show real estate sales that total some one thousand five hundred eighty acres from the years 1742 through 1753 in Perquimans County. The "Jessup Schoolhouse" in Perquimans County is said to have been a house of Thomas. It was used as a Quaker meeting place for a time then became a place for "children to study the Blue Back Speller." Thomas is recorded in Perquimans County in 1760 and in Orange Countu in 1766. His Friends membership between 1765 and 1767 moved back and forth from Cove Creek to New Garden. In Guilford County he settled his children on farms around his. His farm still known as "Jessup's Farm" is nearthe site of Gulford College and the New Garden Meeting. Source LDS microfilm 1561672.

From "The Ancestry of Allen Grinnell Cleaver and Martha Irene Jessup" compiled by William Jessup Cleaver and published by Gateway Press, Inc. of Baltimore, MD we find the following information:

Thomas Jessup and his family cared for many of the soldiers wounded at the Battle of Guilford Court House during the American Revolution and he is credited as a D. A. R. Ancestor as a result of this public service. The Jessup Farm was used for Cornwallis' headquarters during the Revolutionary War. Many of the battles of Guilford Court House were fought on Land of Thomas Jessup. Their youngest son, Jonathan helped carry the wounded from both sides of the battle field to the Jessup House for care and treatment. The D.A.R. has accredited Thomas with "Patriotic Service" for his part in the mission of mercy. Cornwallis lost 30% of his troops and had to move his weakened force on to Wilmington and then to Yorktown for eventual surrender. The hardships to this Quaker neighborhood were devastating. Both General Greene and General Cornwallis stripped the land of all its livestock, produce and resource. it has been said Cornwallis was forced to leave the area and move to his defeat with Greene in pursuit because the land could no longer support him.

Less than a month before his death, Thomas made a will that revealed he had amassed considerable land and had become quite prosperous:

WILL OF THOMAS JESSUP

I, Thomas Jessup, of Guilford County in North Carolina, planter, being of sound mind and memory, do make and ordain this my last Will and Testament in manner and form following:

Imprimis: My will is that all my just debts and funeral charges be paid and discharged in due time.

Item: I give to my beloved wife, Ann Jessop, the use and profits of the plantation I now live upon (except the part of it which I give to my son, Jacob, which was run off by Jesse Williams), with all the cattle and sheep that are thereon, and what cattle I have at Tom's Creek now in possession of my son, Joseph Jessop: also all my household furniture which remains unmentioned in this will, and ploughing gears, and all other utensils that are now on my plantation for tilling the ground, during her widowhood or till my son, Jonathan Jessop comes of age, then only one-half the profits during her widowhood; also, I give unto her the horse, Dick, one feather bed and furniture, and the lawful interest on thirty pounds during her life.

Item: I give unto my son, Joseph Jessop, my bald eagle mare, shoemaker's tools, beaver hat, curry knife, a pair of new boots, razor and strap and a piece of cloth sent for by William Wilson.

Item: I give unto my son, Thomas Jessop, seventy pounds specie.

Item: I give unto my sons, Timothy Jessop, Caleb Jessop and William Jessop and my daughter Mary Hussey, each of them five shillings.

Item: I give unto my son, Jacob Jessop, that end of my land which he now lives on to the line which was run by Jesse Williams, to him, his heirs and assigns forever.

Item: I give unto my son, Jonathan Jessop, all the remaining part of my plantation and land whereon I now live, with all thereunto belonging, except one-half the profits which I have reserved for my wife during her widowhood, to him, his heirs and assigns forever.

Item: I give unto my daughter, Sarah Jessop, five shillings.

Item: I give unto my daughters Hannah and Ann Jessop each of them a feather bed, and furniture and at the age of eighteen or marriage, twenty-five pounds each.

Item: I give unto my sons, Timothy and William all my carpenter's and coopers' tools.

Item: I give unto my son, Jonathan Jessop, my blazed-face mare, with all the remaining part of my stock

Item: I give unto my sons, Joseph, Thomas, Timothy, Caleb, Willliam and Jacob all the remaining part of my wearing apparel, to be equally divided amongst them.

Item: I give all the remaining part of my estate, of whatever name or nature unto my seven sons and one daughter, namely: Joseph, Thomas, Timothy, Caleb, William, Jacob, Jonathan and my daughter, Mary Hussey, to be equally divided amongst them. And it is my will that if either of my youngest daughters, Hannah or Ann Jessop, die without heirs, the survivor have the deceased's legacy; and if both of them die with heirs, that my son Jonathan have their legacies; and if my son Jonathan die in his minority or without heirs, that my son Joseph's eldest son, Jacob, have the land which I have willed to my son, Jonathan, and the remaining part of his legacy to be divided amongst all my children before named, except Sarah. And if my grandson Jacob Jessop, above named, should die in his minority or with heirs, that the land herein directed be divided amongst all my children before name, except Sarah.

I have made my friend William Wilson my attorney to sell my lands in Chowan and Perquimans Counties and it is my will that at the decease of my wife the household stuff then remaining be equally divided between my two daughters, Hannah and Ann.

Lastly, I do make and constitute my beloved son, Joseph Jessop, and my friend, William Coffin, Jr., joint executors of this my last will and testament.

In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal this 20th day of the eleventh month, in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and eight-three.

19. JOHN4 SMALL (JOHN3, JOHN2, JOHN1) was born Abt. 1728 in MM in Virginia, and died Bef. 1786 in Pasquotank Co., NC. He married (1) ELIZABETH BRUCE Apr 03, 1746 in Core Sound MM, Carteret Co., NC14. She was born Abt. 1728 in Onslow Co., NC, and died Unknown. He married (2) SARAH Bef. 1767. She was born in Born Scotland?, and died Unknown.

Notes for JOHN SMALL:
Carteret Co.
June Court 1749
Benjamin Small made affirmation that he saw John Small Sr. sign, seal, and deliver a deed unto Thomas Jessop for three hundred acres of land in this county and that he also saw John Small Jr. evidence the same and by this court ordered to be registered.

Core Sound MM
1754, 12, --, John rqc (remove to north part of this government)

Lavona <lavonat@akslc.net>

purchased 50 acres on Little River, Pasquotank Co., NC from Barnabus & Sarah Nixon for L10.
1764 sold 50 acres to George Law for L30. Obediah Small witness to deed

1769 tax list Pasquotank Co.
John Small

1786 census lists Sarah as head of household with 3 males under 21, 2 females.

It is not conclusively proved that the John who married Sarah, and the John who married Elizabeth Bruce are the same person. It is based on the deed record above that indicates Obediah witnessed the deed, and assumes that John and Obediah are brothers. No other John is found thus far of the proper age, therefore and assumption that this record is between the two brothers is well founded, but needs to be supported further by other documents that might better prove relationship between them.

Notes for OBEDIAH SMALL, SR.:
Obediah is the first of this name to appear in Quaker records in North Carolina, and as noted below, first appears in Core Sound MM records being granted permission to remove from their meeting to the upper counties in January of 1755. There is no record of an older Obediah in any Quaker MM Vol.1 prior to this date in North Carolina, and none appear in any records in volume 6, of Virginia for a person named Obediah. No civil records in Virginia indicate a person named Obediah ever resided there, or had family or children in any county of Virginia. No records of deeds or land grants have been found for any individual of this given name in Virginia.

Vol.1 p,733 lists marriage of Gideon, s/o Obediah and Lydia, 7-31-1793 and lists Obediah as deceased at that time. This clearly proves the eldest Obediah b. 1732 is the one who wrote the will dated 1788.

State of North Carolina
Pasquotank County June Term 1802
To the worshipful the justices of the County Court of Pleas quarter sessions for the County of Pasquotank the petition of Elizabeth Small, Joshua Small and Nathan Small infants under the age of Twenty one years by John Pike their guardian and next friend humbly showith That Obediah Small your petitioners late father sometime on or about the fifteenth day of September in the year one thousand seven hundred and eighty eight duly made and published his last Will and testament in writing and therein among other things bequeathed as follows " I leave all the remaining part of my estate to be sold & equally divided (after my just debt and funeral expenses are paid ) to six of my youngest children to them & their disposal and thereof appointed Samuel Small & William Grier executor and shortly after departed this life without having altered or revoked his said will.
Your Petitioner further show that the said Samuel Small proved the said will in due form of same and took upon himself the direction thereof and in conveyence thereof ----himself of the whole personal estate of his testator amounting after the payment of funeral charges debts & other legacies to a considerable sum and having paid over to the other ligatees their share or portion of the said residue departed this life intestate.
And your petitioner further says that after the death of the said Samuel administration of his estate was in due form of same committed to Miriam the widow and relict of the said Samuel who in conveyence thereof took into her possession the residue of the estate of the said Obadiah and administered by the said Samuel and --- not without the remaining proceeds the application of your petitioners to that purpose to account with for injury -- to your petitioners any part thereof to the - and in order to compell the said Miriam to do justice to your petitioners -- balance unreadable.
Note: Samuel was administrator of the estate, he died before he could disburse all the residue of his fathers estate to all the children, and his wife Miriam took the balance into his estate as his administrator. John Pike asks the court for her to account for the remainder of the residue of Obediah's estate and the court to disburse these assets to the remaining children. Since only three of the six Obediah mentions as "his youngest" it can be assumed that the three named were children of Obediah and Sarah, and the other three, apparently by his first wife, who received their share as per the petition.
The photocopy I received was difficult to read because the writing on the back of the page bled through, causing what was very legible writing to become impossible to decipher due to the bleed through from the last page. The unreadable portion has no negligible effect on the above.

Lydia (Bundy) Small died on 12-5-1780 as noted above in Hinshaw Vol. 1, p. 117. There is no second marriage listed for him in Quaker records because he remarried contrary to discipline as per Hinshaw on 2-19-1783, three years after the death of his first wife. That he did remarry is proved in Hinshaw Vol. 1 p. 165: Pasquotank Co., 2-19-1783 Obediah dis mcd. A year later, he asked for forgiveness from the meeting: 7-21-1784 Obediah con his conduct and was rst. He had three more children by this second wife (Sarah), as noted above in the petition by John Pike. They were married as follows:

Notes for SARAH ALBERTSON:
Abstracts of Perquimans County Wills
Will of Elihu Albertson Book C page 396
10th of 9th month 1787 probate July 1789
Wife Jane: sons Josiah and Joshua: daus Miriam Albertson, SARAH SMALL, Lydia Wilson, Abigail Bond and Elizabeth Albertson.

The Albertson family lived in the same area that Obediah and Lydia lived and went to the same Meeting. Seems this Sarah would be the most likely to have married the widower Small. She inherited from her father and she was a widow and would have inherited from her first husband Benjamin Newby.

It can be assumed Sarah and Benjamin Newby had children, but none are mentioned in Hinshaw records. When Sarah, relict of Obediah married John Pike in 1802, witnesses included two persons named Mary and Enoch Newby, who could have been her children, although no mention of relationship is given in the minutes. Also attending were several persons named in Elihu's will above, Miriam and Elizabeth Albertson, and Lydia and Samuel Wilson, apparently sisters of Sarah.

Although no record specifically states Sarah's maiden name is Albertson, the circumstantial evidence points plainly in that direction. Sarah Albertson first married Benjamin Newby in Hinshaw's records, Obediah was dis mcd a few years after both he and Sarah lost their spouses, Sarah is named in Obediah's will as having an estate (her previous husband Ben, and possibly her fathers); named as relict of Obediah when she married John Pike, and three of Sarah Small's sisters, two named Albertson, and one name Lydia Wilson attend her marriage, and these are proved by Elihu Albertson's will. Two persons of the surname Newby also attend, and could be closely related, possibly children of Sarah by her previous marriage to Benjamin, or could have been her sister or brother-in-laws

In Reply to: Re: SMALL, BENJAMIN b abt 1691 VA m KNIGHT d NC by Maurine Small Atkins of 1524

JOSEPH SMALL, BENJAMIN's brother, migrated to Chowan County, N.C., where he died in 1754. His eldest son Josiah married Sarah Rogerson, with whom he had Nancy, Rachel and Reuben. Nancy Small married Michael McKeil(McKell)in 1785. Their only child Josiah McKiel was born in 1786. Josiah was orphaned with the death of his father in 1802. Reuben Small,his uncle, was appointed his guardian. Josiah McKiel married Lydia Bond (would like to find her parents) and had sons William B. and James. Lydia died in about 1824, later Josiah married Hannah Benbury, widow of Edmund Benbury. They had a son named Henry, probably while traveling to Phillips County, Arkansas, where they settled. Josiah died in 1870. I think I just found a bunch of Small distant, distant cousins! Would love to compare notes. Janice McKiel Wallace

Notes for BENJAMIN SMALL, JR.:
named in the Will of Benjamin Small Sr. dated 1-27-1820

Benjamin signed marriage bond for Reuben. Reuben was living on the land of Benjamin's brother Josiah, it is therefore likely that Josiah was dead before Benjamin wrote his will, because Benjamin bought the land from Reuben.

Benjamin Small Jr. had in his will that his son John G. Small shall inherit the Sand Ridge Plantation. The Sand Ridge Plantation house used to stand in Cow Hall Swamp on the Chowan/Perquimans County Line in North Carolina.

Last Will and Testament - Benjamin Small Jr.

I, Benjamin Small, of the County of Chowan in the state of North Carolina, being of sound mind and memory, do make and ordain this my last will and testament in the manner and form following, to wit:

In case my wife should not live one whole year after my death, all of the above property not made use of to return back to my estate and to be distributed as I shall direct.

1821,3,31 Mtg appointed Friends to assist in the matter between the estate of Jonas Small and the heirs of James Mace & secure the rights of James Mace's children in his property.

Note: Jonas' wife Sarah Moore was the widow of James Mace. James was the Grandson of William Bordon and apparent heir, which was passed on to his children, and through the Nathan Fuller Will, Jonas Small was to receive his choice of land, "100 acres on Bogue Banks, being Jonas Small's choice, in right of his wife, agreeable to the will of her
grandfather William Borden." Apparently when Jonas wrote his will, he failed to include his wife's children by the marriage of her to James Mace, and therefore, left his step children out of his will. His wife, petitioned the Friends to remedy this failure.

Notes for JOSEPH JESSOP:
12-6-1722/23 Perquimans MM - additions, page 6 of Vol. 1 The mtg ordered Benjamin Wilson to pay a debt owed to Joseph Jessop in one month's time.

The Jo Martin Family
The Jessup family of the Westfield area of Surry Co., NC has one of the most complete historical and genealogical records of any family in the county. Such a history was made possible by the wonderful records in the Quaker Church, the church with which so many Jessups have been associated for more than 300 years. Much of my information has come from these Quaker Records and it is my joy to share what I have learned about my ancestors with others interested in preserving our heritage. My research has been enhanced also by the help of so many Jessup family genealogists who have shared their findings with me.

Joseph Jessup became the first Jessup to settle at Westfield, NC. He was accompanied to Westfield by three of his brothers but all three of them later moved to Indiana and other western states. Joseph was the only son of Thomas Jessup that remained in NC. He married Priscilla "out of unity, settled on a farm in Stokes Co., NC, near the headwaters of the Dan River, not far from the southern border of VA. His father, Thomas Jessup, signed the disownment papers at Cane Creek MM. Joseph, alone of his father's sons, lived and died in NC. The children of Joseph and Priscilla Jessup were found on two wills dated 29 Feb 1791 and 10 Mar 1796. Quaker records were submitted to Beth Cox Rowe by Linda Jessup. She also gives credit to Rev. Jasper Newton Jessup.

WILL OF JOSEPH JESSUP:

I, Joseph Jessop, of Surry County & State of North Carolina, being of sound mind and memory, ordain this my last will and testament in manner and form following:

First, my will is that all my just debts and funeral charges be paid in due time by my Executors.

Item 2. My Will is that son Jacob Jessop have five shillings.

Item 3. My Will is that my daughter, Sarah Jackson, have five shillings.

Item 4. My Will is that my daughter, Mary Jackson, have five shillings.

Item 6. My Will is that my son, John Jessop, have five shillings.

Item 7. My Will is that my daughter, Rachel Jessop, have five shillings.

Item 8. My Will is that my beloved wife, Priscilla Jessop shall have the plantation, whereon I now live and all the appurtenances thereunto belonging while she remains my widow, the plantation to be equally divided between her and Eli and she to have her choice of halves and at her decease then Eli is to have the aforesaid plantation and all the land lying between the line that divides of my son, William and my son, Jacob, land and sixty acres lying on both sides of the grassee fork joining the county line.

Item 9. My Will is that my beloved wife shall have all the income of my mill while she remains my widow.

Item 10. My Will is that as long as my sons keep my mill up they shall have their grain ground at her clear of expense except the miller's part.

Item 11. My Will is that my daughter, Hannah Jessop, shall have thirty-five pounds

Item 12. My Will is that my survey of land of three hundred and ten acres lying on Forbush Creek in Surry County and one hundred and ninety and one half acres of my land on Arches Creek in Surry County, and fifty acres of land on the waters of the Stock Fork in Stokes County all to be sold and equally divided between my wife, Priscilla Jessop and all my children; namely, Jacob, Sarah, Mary, Joseph, William, John, Rachel, Caleb, Elijah, Hannah and Eli.

Item 13. Thereby ordain, constitute and appoint my trusty and well beloved brother, Timothy Jessop and my son, Joseph Jessop, the whole and sole Executors of this my last Will and Testament to act and dispose thereof according to my Will and desire to the best of their knowledge.

And lastly, thereby utterly revoke and disannul and make void all other will or wills or testaments by me made or done, except such as made and done lawfully in my life time. Rectifying, confirming and allowing this and no other to be my last Will and Testament, whereunto I have interchangeably set my hand and affixed my seal this tenth day of the third month in the year of our Lord, one thousand, seven hundred and ninety-six.

37. MARY5 JESSOP (SARAH4 SMALL, BENJAMIN3, JOHN2, JOHN1) was born Dec 05, 1740 in Guilford Co., NC, and died Nov 10, 1821 in Guilford Co., NC. She married JOHN HUSSEY May 29, 1766 in Cane Creek Mtg. Orange Co. NC, son of JOHN HUSSEY and MARGARET RECORD. He was born Abt. 1725 in of, Kennet, Chester Co., Pennsylvania, and died Feb 07, 1781 in New Garden MM, Guilford, North Carolina.

Notes for MARY JESSOP:
Source: The NC IGI list Mary Jessop and John Hussey as the parents of many of the same children that the New Garden (NC) Monthly meeting list with parents of John and Mary Hussey. Therefore the name of Mary Jessop is confirmed.

Notes for JOHN HUSSEY:
The Ancestors and descendants of Jehu Cox, by Wayne D Stout. Stout explains in 1745 in Warrington, York County, Pennsylvania, a live Quaker community, was the home of the Cox, Hussey, and Garretson families. These clans had stuck together for generations. Many inter-marriages had cemented the tribe into a solit unit. In about 1755 the three families moved to Cane Creek, Orange County, North Carolina, a distance of 300 miles. Cane Creek was a real Mecca for the Society of Friends. These Quakers hoped to establish a new Zion amoungst the slave holders of the South. A quaker Meeting was organized and a progressive community sprang into existence. Like the Mormons in Jackson County, the Quakers soon found themselves surrounded by intolerant neighbors. The slaveholders looked with suspicion on these strange people whose religion opposed slavery.. Suspicion led to antagonism and conflicts. Finally, persecution became so violent the Quakers abandoned Cane Creek and settled in eastern Tennessee, Kentucky, and western Virginia.

However, from the Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy, we know our line moved from the Cane Creek MM to the New Garden MM in 1772 where John died in 1881. His son Jediah moved the line to Back Creek MM, Randolph County, in 1796.

It was his grandson Thomas (son of Jediah) who took our line from Randolph County, North Carolina, to the White Lick MM in Morgan Counthy, Indiana, in 1832.

7-8-1807 Fairfield Monthly Meeting, located in Highland County, Ohio, near the town of Leesburg, was opened. A meeting for worship had been established at Fairfield about two years prior to the opening of the monthly meeting. A list of names of Friends who were early members of Fairfield Monthly Meeting includes Joseph Small overseer. (Note: This Indiana territory included portions of Ohio)

Fall Creek Monthly Meeting in Highland County was set off from Fairfield Monthly Meeting at a meeting of Miami Quarterly Meeting held 5-11-1811. One of the first acts of the new meeting was to appoint a committee to confer with a similar committee of the Fairfield Monthly Meeting to establish the boundaries. The men selected were Richard Barrett, Josiah Thomasson, Walter Canady, Caleb Sumner, Obediah Small and Joseph Small.

The boundary established was as follows: "The new road leading from New Lancaster to Chillicothe; thence up the state road to the Indian Ford on Paint Creek; thence up Paint Creek to the mouth of Rattlesnake (fork of Paint); thence up Rattlesnake to the mouth of Fall Creek; thence the road leading to Hillsborough; thence the new state road to West Union."

In August 1814 at Salt Creek, Highland Co., Ohio, Joseph Small was drowned while crossing a stream with horses. They became tangled in their harness and he lost his life while trying to rescue them. In 1816 with the exception of the two older daughters, the family removed to New Garden MM, Ind.

Bundy Family Record
Joseph Small, son of Obediah Small (2) and Lydia Bundy, was born 26 Nov 1767, in Pasquotank Co., NC. He was married 1st to Meley Cartwright. On 16 March 1793, he was married to Clarkey (Clarissa) Perisho, who was born 28 Feb 1773, Pasquotank Co., daughter of Joshua Perisho and Miriam Morris (See Perisho and Morris Family)
On 30 Jan 1796, they requested a certificate from Back Creek Monthly Meeting. In 1806, they moved to Miami Monthly Meeting, OH; and later to Fall Creek Monthly Meeting, OH. On 28 Aug 1814, at Salt Creek, Highland Co., OH, Joseph was drowned while crossing a stream with horses. They became tangled in their harness and he lost his life while trying to rescue them. In 1816, with the exception of the two older daughters, the family moved to New Garden MM., IN.
About 1828, Abel Roberts and wife, moved to the Fall Creek neighborhood where they lived in a hewed log house which belonged to a widow woman who was crazy. The rent went towards her support. They lived there and took care of the old woman. Her name was Small. Her husband had been drowned and her children scattered out and were then living in Indiana. She was very crazy and had to be confined. Her children finally sent word that they would take care of her if they would bring her to them, which they did in Oct 1837 - to the Mississinewa Meeting in Grant Co, where she lived with her son Joshua until her death at an advanced age.

F-2. Joshua Small and Jane Bowen

Joshua Small, son of Joseph Small and Clarkey Perisho, was born 5 March 1797, at Back Creek, NC. He moved with his parents from NC, to Highland Co., OH. In 1816, he moved along with his brothers to Randolph Co.,IN. He was married there, the 8th or 11th Nov 1819. to Jane Bowen, who was born 27 Sep 1803, in Green Co., OH, dau of Ephraim Bowen and Hannah Hale. (See Bowen Family) They had 16 children. He owned a grist mill on Deer Creek near Jonesboro, Grant Co., IN. In 1823 he was condemned by the Quaker church for going to the law, in regard to a dispute with a fellow member. He was also condemned for rendering spirituous liquor (moonshining.) They were both disowned for neglecting the attendance at church. In 1829 he purchased and settled on 640 acres (known as section 17) in Grant Co (later known as the Hollingsworth farm.) In 1832 they joined the White River Meeting in IN. In 1848 he was a partner with Elias Coleman in operating a general store. Jane died 29 Nov 1858, near Greenvale, Dallas Co., IA. Was she visiting there? Joshua died 23 April 1861, in Jonesboro, Grant Co., IN. Or was he visiting at their old place. They left land in IA, which eventually was inherited by their granddaughter Mary Adams. Two of the sons lived in KS in 1868
Jane's obituary states that she died of consumption 29 Nov 1858, in Greenvale, Dallas Co., IO. "The deceased was for many years a resident of this county, where she was highly esteemed for her many good qualities of mind and heart. As a wife she was constant, dutiful and companionable. As a mother she was kind and affectionate. Devoted in all her relations in life, she was no less so as a friend and Christian. There was no affection of sympathy for the sick or distressed, but a real fellow feeling which evinced itself in acts for their relief. The writer of this, from an intimate acquaintance can attest to her amiable disposition and exemplary character. She was, in every respect, a model for her sex, and shared in a large degree the love and confidence of her numerous acquaintances. As a Christian and philanthropist, she was active and hopeful. There was always an air of cheerful resignation about her that inspired her friends with sentiments of the highest respect. We feel that it is difficult to speak of her in all these qualities - which were peculiarly hers - in language adequate to her worth. She was truly one to remember and imitate in all the duties of life; and we have thus endeavored to record her excellence with feelings of admiration for the same; and no doubt her numerous friends everywhere, will read them with the same pleasurable recollections.

Hezekiah Lamb and Hannah Small

Hezekiah Lamb, (F-611-Part II), the oldest child of John Lamb and Lydia Mendenhall, was born 16 July 1815 in Wayne Co, IN. The full account of John Lamb's ancestors will be found in Part II. The full account of Lydia Mendenhall's ancestors will be found in Part III. This line is recorded as far back as years 300-400, the lines of King Alfred the Great of England, and William the Conqueror of England, Kings of Scotland, Ireland, Hungary, France, Germany, to Charlemaigne the first Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, who claimed to be descended from Julius Caesar.

Hezekiah was married in Grant Co. IN, to Hannah Small, who was born 5 Aug 1820, probably in Randolph Co. IN, daughter of Joshua Small and Jane Bowen. The full account of Hannah's ancestors will be found in Part IV.
Their oldest child was born five months before they were married. The Quaker record states that on 9 Mar 1836, Hannah was reprimanded for unchastity, but that she denied it. One can only read between the lines. Certainly, Hezekiah accepted James as his son. Their marriage license says the license was granted on the 20 May 1836 and that they were married on 20 May 1836 by a justice of the peace. To be married by a justice of the peace was contrary to Quaker discipline, and on 8 June 1836 at the Mississinewa-Marion MM, IN, note was made; he was condemned for misconduct. On 16 July 1841 Hezekiah was charged with non-attendance, and for not satisfying a just debt.
They had lived in Grant County about 17 years, when they decided to move west as many of the Quakers were doing then, including the Moormans, Winslows, and Piersons. They left IN with teams and covered wagons. Hezekiah and Hannah lived briefly in Fayette Co. IA, where their son Hale was born, then settled in Dallas Co. IA, until 1864, then moved to Fremont County in the southwest corner of IA, near the little town of Riverton. After his father's death, his mother Lydia, came to live with them for a time. There they finished raising their family. They had grandchildren who lived with them from time to time.

The Civil War was to cause them personal grief. They had two sons that enlisted in Iowa companies. Wilson Lamb marched with Sherman through Georgia, and came through safely, but his younger brother Joshua, died during the last days of the war. Joshua never saw his youngest brother, Luna Albert, born after he went away. Hannah saved many of their letters; they are included here, in Family Group "D" and "G." The letters give some personal insight to the close family ties, and family life.


About 1881 Hezekiah and Hannah moved to Jewell Co, KS. With the exception of James who drifted a little south into MO, and Jane, Rebecca, and Mary Angeline, who were married and remained in IA, at least for a time, their children and their families also made another move west. Many of Silas' children moved to Custer Co. NE, though Silas stayed in IA until after the death of his wife in 1895. Jewell County lies on the Nebraska border, and the clans settled on both sides.
Hezekiah's farm was located three miles west and two south of Northbranch, straight north of Esbon, KS. It was a pretty little place between two small streams that met close by. It had a road that curved among the trees, and orchards and meadows. Today there are no buildings there. Northbranch, a Quaker community, once a thriving community, had a college, Friends' Academy, next door to the house where his son Hale lived after he retired. The Quaker cemetery where Hezekiah and Hannah were buried was across the street.
Hezekiah died 27 Mar 1897, at the age of 82, on the "homeplace" west of Northbranch, KS, in Jewell County. He died rather suddenly, and there was speculation that he had ptomaine poisoning. After the death of his father, Luna Albert, who was still unmarried at age 34, promised to take care of his mother the rest of her life. She was then 77. In return he was supposed to receive the farm. However, he was married shortly after that, to 18 year old Maud Wilson. The house had two rooms, and two baby boys came along shortly. The arrangement was not a happy one. Luna Albert decided to move to Ford Co. in southwest KS. After that, Hale and Mollie, who already had a large family, moved onto the place. They built a house for themselves, while Hannah lived in hers. After the death of Hannah, Hale used it to add extra space to his own house.
Hale's children remembered Grandma with great affection. She spoiled them and taught them to drink coffee. She told them a story about how she had Indian forbearers. This great granddaughter can find no evidence of such a thing, but the story still persists. Once, when a granddaughter remarked about the hole in her apron, Hannah turned it over and said, "Look, there's one on the other side, too."
Hannah died 1 Oct 1906, and was buried beside Hezekiah in the Quaker Cemetery in Northbranch, KS. The tombstone that now stands at the gravesite is not the original marker, (which was very small) and does not carry the correct birthday. Their son, John, seems to have been the one that put up the later one, because he thought the first one was wrong.

The Esbon Times for that week had this note: "The old lady Lamb died at the home of her son Hale north of town, last Sunday night, and was buried at the Stone Church Cemetery on Monday. She was 86 years old." The following week, 11 Oct 1906, the Burr Oak Herald carried this obituary: "Hannah Small was born 5 Aug 1820, died 1 Oct 1906, and married Hezekiah Lamb in 1836. She gave birth to 18 children, 11 of which survive her. She left 107 grandchildren, and approximately 140 great grandchildren, as near as can be traced, and 2 or 3 great great grandchildren."

There were at least 6 grandchildren born after her death. Today, it is hard to imagine what it would be like to have that many grandchildren. Apparently, she did try to keep track of them, although it is no wonder, that she did not know the exact number of great grandchildren. I wish I could have found her records. There must be someone in the family somewhere that has them. Luna Albert had a small Bible that had belonged to her, but did not carry family records.

In Reply to: Re: SMALL, BENJAMIN b abt 1691 VA m KNIGHT d NC by Maurine Small Atkins of 1524

JOSEPH SMALL, BENJAMIN's brother, migrated to Chowan County, N.C., where he died in 1754. His eldest son Josiah married Sarah Rogerson, with whom he had Nancy, Rachel and Reuben. Nancy Small married Michael McKeil(McKell)in 1785. Their only child Josiah McKiel was born in 1786. Josiah was orphaned with the death of his father in 1802. Reuben Small, his uncle, was appointed his guardian. Josiah McKiel married Lydia Bond (would like to find her parents) and had sons William B. and James. Lydia died in about 1824, later Josiah married Hannah Benbury, widow of Edmund Benbury. They had a son named Henry, probably while traveling to Phillips County, Arkansas, where they settled. Josiah died in 1870. I think I just found a bunch of Small distant, distant cousins! Would love to compare notes. Janice McKiel Wallace

Notes for JANE E. SMALL:
David Small Family Bible, Lists birth, death and marriage date, children's births and some deaths.
See bible record listed under DavidRichard Henry Small is the eldest son of John G Small s/o Ben Jr.
Richard and Jane E had only one child R H Small Jr.
Some time during the civil war Jane and son died. R H Small Sr.
remarried and had a second son named R H Small, the last record I have
of the second son is 1920 with him living with his step father in
Norfolk, Virginia. However, I cannot find him in the 1930 census.
R H Small Sr. is buried next to his second wife at Beaver Hill Cemetery
in Edenton. FYI
Thomas Small (end of his particular line) is buried with the Bond family
in a small graveyard in
front of Edenton First Baptist Church. We have a branch of Small's that
live in Houston, Texas that are decended from the W. E. Bond branch of
Small's. I believe it was Frances Small.
Another FYI, my aunt is Mrs. W. E. Bond's daughter.

82. CYRUS BROWN6 SMALL (BENJAMIN5, AMOS4, BENJAMIN3, JOHN2, JOHN1) was born Aug 27, 1808 in Jones Co., NC, and died Mar 07, 1880 in Oak Grove Cem., Clark Co., MS.

Notes for CYRUS BROWN SMALL:
There are court records in Selma, Dallas County, Alabama concerning the custody of Lewis Small's children by Rebecca. Susan Small and William J. Updike had custody of Daniel and then returned it to James H. Westbrook, son of Durant Westbrook, later it was transferred from James H. Westbrook to
Cyrus Small, that was the last entry on his custody or guardianship in Dallas County.

Cyrus Small bought up an estate and basically bought all but four properties between Lewis Small and his daughter, Susan Small & William J. Updike in Dallas County, Ala. He has so many patented deeds for land in Alabama. He maybe Lewis' brother but I have no documentation, he is a witness when Lewis & Moriah sold to Joseph Small.

Obituary
"Small July 28, Phineas, aged eighty one years nine months and eighteen days, at his home south of Westville, of Cholera.
Mr. Small was born in South Carolina Nov 9 1805, where he resided until three years of age, at which time he moved with his parents to North Carolina where he remained until he was twenty. In 1828 he came to this state and settled in Montgomery county. In keeping with his disposition to be abreast of the times he, six years thereafter, went to Michigan City, which was at that time the most promising port on Lake Michigan, and purchased property, remaining there until the fall of 1834, when he purchased the farm on which he lived at the time of his death. The house then stood some distance west of where it now stands, having been moved to its present location some 28 years ago. June 25 1840, he was married to Miss Mary Pinney, who survives him. Eight children were born to them; seven of whom are still living.


Orlando resides at Kansas City Mo and is engaged in the real estate business. Henderson and Harrison, twins, are both engaged in the mercantile business the former at Eureka Kan. and the latter at Fredonia Kan. Eunice, the second daughter, is the wife of Dallas Haskell and resides at Hellena, Montana. Serena, who died at the age of 33 years was the wife of Elijay Reynolds. Nancy is the wife of G. E. Zener and resides at LaPorte. Riley and Orange have always resided under the parental roof; not, perhaps, of their own choice, but as a duty they owed to their aged parents. Mr. Small, the father of this exemplary family, was a man whom all respected, devoted to his home and family, strictly honest in his dealings with men, endowed with a most generous and charitable disposition he naturally gained a position in the esteem of his fellow men that few attain. He has been very successful in business, and his property has been estimated at $100,000. A disposition was made of the same by a will. During all these years of prosperity and health he was ever mindful of the tastes and comforts of those around him and one who has enjoyed his hospitalities could not bet notice his kind bouyand disposition constantly breaking out with cheerful expressions."

The obituary continues to describe the illness preceeding his death, and that all his children were notified and able to attend him prior to his death except Mrs. Haskell, who was some 1200 miles away.
The last paragraph of this lengthy obituary gives some indication of his roots.

"This closes the career of one who has lived, not for himself alone, but that others also might enjoy their existence and be happier because he had lived. Mr. Small was a Friend Quaker and always adherred to that belief. He was a christian in all that that word implies. The noble wife and in other who survives him is now 66 years of age, and is highly esteemed lady. The Indicator joins with the entire community in sympathy to the bereaved family." //end.

The mention of a Quaker heritage is consistant with the genealogy of his parents and the likely connection to the Quaker family of Pasquotank Co., NC

PHINEAS SMALL was born in 1805 in South Carolina. At three years of age went
to North Carolina, thence to Wayne County, Ind., where he resided until he
was 20; thence to Montgomery County, and six years thereafter, on horseback,
to Michigan City, where he purchased a lot, built a house, sold it, and in
the Fall of 1834 moved to Clinton Township, Laporte County.

Here he purchased 160 acres, erected a cabin, and commenced to make him a
home, a lithograph of which may be seen in another part of this work.
(Transcriber's note: At this time, I do not have the picture noted here).

He married, June 25, 1840, Mary Pinney, of Ohio. Her father, Horace, was
from Connecticut, and her mother, Nancy (Snavley) from Virginia.

Mr. Small's ancestors are of English descent, and his grandfather was killed
in battle at the beginning of the Revolutionary War.

Wayne Township
Nathan Small, retired farmer, Waynetown, was born in North Carolina, May 4 1808, and came with his parents to Waynetown Indiana in 1811. In 1828, with about $200 in ready money and a strong body, aided by a resolute determination to become independent, he removed to this township, since when his history is comtemporary with that of those who by their untiring energy have made this country what it is. With this money Mr. Small entered land here, and by dint of hard labor succeded in clearing it, at the same time enduring all the hardships incident to pioneer life. Whenever he became the possessor of any money he invested it to the best advantage in real estate, so that before dividing it with his children he owned 1000 acres of land and was worth about $50,000. In 1830 Mr. Small was married to Louisa Blackford, with whom he lived until 1859, when she died. They had nine children, six of whom are living: Mary, who married Charles Berry and with whom the subject of this sketch is now living; Phineas, who is a successful farmer in this township; owning 197 acres of land and giving considerable attention to stock-raising; John who is also a farmer of this township; Louisa, the wife of Isaac Williams; Edward and Nathan Jr., who are also following the occupation of their father, that of a husbandman. In politics Mr. Small was at first a whig, and upon the dissolution of that party, with the great mass of its members, cast his lot with the then infant republican party, a member of which he has since been. He is now enjoying the sweets of retired life, to which he seems doubly entitled when we consider the hardships he endured in common with the pioneers, who are the most important factor in the foundation of the principles upon which this community now rests.

Joshua Small, son of Joseph Small and Clarkey Perisho, was born 5 March 1797, at Back Creek, NC. He moved with his parents from NC, to Highland Co., OH. In 1816, he moved along with his brothers to Randolph Co.,IN. He was married there, the 8th or 11th Nov 1819. to Jane Bowen, who was born 27 Sep 1803, in Green Co., OH, dau of Ephraim Bowen and Hannah Hale. (See Bowen Family) They had 16 children. He owned a grist mill on Deer Creek near Jonesboro, Grant Co., IN. In 1823 he was condemned by the Quaker church for going to the law, in regard to a dispute with a fellow member. He was also condemned for rendering spirituous liquor (moonshining.) They were both disowned for neglecting the attendance at church. In 1829 he purchased and settled on 640 acres (known as section 17) in Grant Co (later known as the Hollingsworth farm.) In 1832 they joined the White River Meeting in IN.

Two of the sons lived in KS in 1868



Notes for JANE BOWEN:
Jane's obituary states that she died of consumption 29 Nov 1858, in Greenvale, Dallas Co., IO. "The deceased was for many years a resident of this county, where she was highly esteemed for her many good qualities of mind and heart. As a wife she was constant, dutiful and companionable. As a mother she was kind and affectionate. Devoted in all her relations in life, she was no less so as a friend and Christian. There was no affection of sympathy for the sick or distressed, but a real fellow feeling which evinced itself in acts for their relief. The writer of this, from an intimate acquaintance can attest to her amiable disposition and exemplary character. She was, in every respect, a model for her sex, and shared in a large degree the love and confidence of her numerous acquaintances. As a Christian and philanthropist, she was active and hopeful. There was always an air of cheerful resignation about her that inspired her friends with sentiments of the highest respect. We feel that it is difficult to speak of her in all these qualities - which were peculiarly hers - in language adequate to her worth. She was truly one to remember and imitate in all the duties of life; and we have thus endeavored to record her excellence with feelings of admiration for the same; and no doubt her numerous friends everywhere, will read them with the same pleasurable recollections.

Notes for JEMIMA JONES CAIN:
Title: death date taken from tombstone; birth date calculated from death date

Jemima was born in Ohio (unconfirmed) on 3-23-1811. Records say she was married to a man by the name of Farmer but I have not been able to document that. She did marry John H. Cain with the license being issued on 2-20-1841. He died in 1866.
Jemima and Jesse would not have had any children most likely since she was 69 when they married. From the Springfield MM , Wayne Co., IN the records state that "Jesse s Joseph & Clarky Grant Co. m Jemima Cain dt Daniel & Jemima Jones at public mtg in her res Economy (8-24-1880). The next entry is: 9-15-1880 - Jemima (Cain) rec in mbrp. and the next entry is: 1-15-1881 - Jemima gct Mississinewa MM.
In the Mississenewa MM minutes there are 2 entries under Small that relate to Jesse and Jemima. the 1st is: 9-8-1880 Jesse gct Springfield MM, Ind to m Jemima Cain. The 2nd is: 2-9-1881 - Jemima rocf Springfield MM, Ind I guess that doesn't mean there are 2 different marriage dates necessarily.

108. REUBEN6 SMALL (JOSEPH5, OBEDIAH4, JOHN3, JOHN2, JOHN1) was born Apr 05, 1812 in Highland Co., OH, and died Mar 08, 1887 in Wabash, Wabash Co., IN. He married ELIZABETH SHUGART Mar 25, 1835 in Mississinewa MM, Jonesborom, Grant Co., Indiana, daughter of JOHN SHUGART and SARAH. She was born Oct 11, 1817 in IN, and died May 10, 1895 in Wabash, Wabash Co., IN.

Notes for REUBEN SMALL:
History of Wabash County, Indiana : a narrative account of its historical progress, its people, and its principal interests. Chicago. Lewis Pub. Co.. 1914.
p. 528-29
Reuben Small, father of Mrs. Albert Pike and also of the first Mrs. Irwin Pike, though not a pioner of Wabash county, was one of the prominent early settlers in this section of Indiana, and for many years was influentially identified with Wabash county affairs. He was born April 5 1812, in Highland County Ohio, a son of Joseph and Clarkey (Perisho) Small. His early training was necessarily in the midst of pioneer surroundings, and he was a product of the early decades of the nineteenth century. When a young man he came to Grant county, Indiana, and acquired a section of land on Deer Creek. Later in 1858 he had a store and sawmill at Jonesboro, where he was one of the prominent men in that old Quaker community. It was at Jonesboro on March 25, 1835 that he married Elizabeth Shugart. Theoir marriage was solomnized according to the customs of the Quaker faith, that is, by verbally repeating the marriage ceremony without the aid of a preacher or magistrate. During the ante-bellum days, Reuben Small became identified with the abolition movement, and especially with the operation of the underground railway, and his house was a station on that line and through his aid many unfortunate slaves were furthered in their flight to Canada and freedom.

About the year 1866, Reuben Small moved with his fmily to what is known as the Upper Treaty Creek Mill in Noble township of Wabash County, and in 1870, he bought the Lower Treaty Creek Mill. He continued milling until his retirement about 1880, when he moved to the city of Wabash and died there March 1887. Mr Small was of medium stature, genial in disposition and a man whose companionship was eagerly sought because of his optimism and good cheer. Firm in the Quaker faith, he was a frim advocate of peace and temperance, and during his later years wrote a good deal for the local press along those lines and for the general upholding of moral conditions. The wife of Reuben Small was born October 11, 1817 and died May 10, 1895. They had thirteen children, only two of whom are now living in Wabash Countuy; Anna widow of Albert Pike; and Julia, wife of Edwin Forest. of Wabash. One son, Enoch, was actively identified with the milling business in Wabash county, and was also associated with his father in that industry.

Reuben and wife Elizabeth and children rocf from Mississinewa MM to Back Creek 2-19-1857. This record lists all his children, only three were listed in Mississinewa record. on page 16 of Abstracts of the records of the Society of Friends in Indiana, Part Three, Indiana Hist. Society. children listed were the three oldest, Enoch, Noah and Jane.

Notes for JOSIAH SMALL:
Jim,
I have some records written by my husband's grandmother, Dora Cox Leamon.
This is what she wrote:
"Josiah Small was my grandfather, born Feb 9, 1827, the son of Jesse Small
and Elizabeth Draper. On January 24, 1850, he married Nancy Jane Boxell.
To this union were born eleven children. All grew to manhood and womanhood,
all were married and became prosperous, except Alfred who died a young man -
age 18."

"Josiah Small was one of the first school teachers in Franklin Township,
Grant Co., Indiana. Besides farming, he also was a shoemaker at the time of
his death and owned about 160 acres. Seven of the children were born in a
log cabin. Rhoda, Lucy, Jesse, and Elizabeth were born in a frame house
built in 1864 and still standing and occupied. The Small homestead is
located mile north and a mile west of Roseburg in Franklin Township on the
banks of Pipe Creek."

"Josiah Small died in 1878. With the help of the older children, some of
whom were married, my grandmother managed to keep the family together.
Nancy Jane Boxell's family came from Virginia and were aristocrats. She was
a devout Christian. Roseburg was the capital of Franklin Township and the
meeting place of the neighborhood. My mother often told about as young
girls they would go barefooted through the big woods and when they got to
church would put on their shoes. . . ."

"Grandmother Small (Nancy Jane Boxell) lived a frugal life and knew the
value of a dollar. All ten children lived and died the same way. Some
became quite wealthy. Nancy Jane Small died Oct. 20, 1890 and is buried
beside Josiah in the I.O.O.F. Cemetery at Marion, Indiana. My father always
said that Grandmother Small was the greatest of cooks. . . . "

In addition to the family record, I also have a "Small" genealogy research
done by some unknown person years ago. It has been in the family for a
number of years but those who know the origin are now gone. It does not
give references but seems to have been pulled from Quaker records. It
mentions a Josiah Small who married Sarah Simons on Nov 3, 1850 but does not
connect the pair to anyone. It also mentions Josiah Small born Feb. 9, 1827
who married Nancy Jane Boxell on Jan. 24, 1850. It connects this Josiah to
Jesse and Elizabeth Draper Small. I could send you a copy of this although
it doesn't constitute proof.

I have also found the connections in an Ancestral file. What do you think?

See bible record listed under DavidRichard Henry Small is the eldest son of John G Small s/o Ben Jr.
Richard and Jane E had only one child R H Small Jr.
Some time during the civil war Jane and son died. R H Small Sr.
remarried and had a second son named R H Small, the last record I have
of the second son is 1920 with him living with his step father in
Norfolk, Virginia. However, I cannot find him in the 1930 census.
R H Small Sr. is buried next to his second wife at Beaver Hill Cemetery
in Edenton. FYI
Thomas Small (end of his particular line) is buried with the Bond family
in a small graveyard in
front of Edenton First Baptist Church. We have a branch of Small's that
live in Houston, Texas that are decended from the W. E. Bond branch of

Another FYI, my aunt is Mrs. W. E. Bond's daughter.

First: I, desire my executrix hereinafter named to pay all my just debts and funeral expenses just as soon as funds shall come into her hands with which to pay same.

Second: I, give, devise and bequeath to my beloved wife, Alethia C. Small such part of my estate, both real and personal as the law allows.

Third: I, give, devise and bequeath my estates both real and personal and mixed, subject to the provisions of item two hereof: to be divided into eleven equal parts or shares, as follows: to Jennie Small wife of Bonner Small one share; to Pennie E.

Small one share, who is the daughter of my son Lee Small now dead; to Claud Small one share; to Marchia F Small one share; to Shaderick F Small, Jr. one share; to Charles H. Small one share and to Herbert Small one share.

Fourth: The share in my estate devised and bequeath to my daughter, Jennie Small, wife of Bonner Small in item three thereof; is devised and bequeathed to her on the specific condition, that she surrender and convey to her joint devises mentioned and named in item three hereof any and all interest or equity that she may have in the estate of her mother, my first wife, and on the further condition that she discharge my estate of any and claims she has against it; said Jennie Small, wife of Bonner Small failing to keep and perform the conditions herein specified shall forfeit her share mentioned in item three hereof and the devise and bequeath as to her in said item shall not take effect, and in such event that is to say, if said Jennie Small shall not elect to take under this will and keep and perform the conditions herein specified; then, it is my desire that my estate, real and personal and mixed disposed of in item three hereof be divided in ten equal parts or shares and distributed among the persons named in item three hereof, except, the said Jennie Small, each person to take one share.

Small, my present wife. While my homeplace whereupon I now live the title to same is in Alethia C. Small, I consider it to be a part of my estate and it is my purpose, intent and desire to divide equally amongst my children by my first and second wives and those who stand in their stead my entire estate, treating them all alike, but if the said Jennie Small shall elect not to take under this will but to take what property that shall come to her from her mother's estate, that is to say my first wife, I shall feel that she has had her part of my estate.

Seventh: I nominate and appoint, my beloved wife Alethia C. Small as Executrix to this my Last Will and Testament requiring of her no bond.

Notes for JAMES L. SMALL:
Up From Dixie
By James L. Small

In a disused shed on some LaPorte county farm there might, perhaps, be found today a rusty, homemade iron poker with a rudely fashioned hook at one end, used in pioneer days to stir up the smoldering embers in the open fireplace of an Indiana homestead. Were it to be discovered, it would be treasured by members of the Small family, for it would serve as the last link connecting their lives with the Dixie from which their people came over a hundred years ago-as symbolic, in its way, as the plow in The Covered Wagon. That poker was well remembered by the late O. L. Small, who told the writer about it and of how it was wrought from a fregment of the wagon which conveyed the family from their home in the South to their newer one above the Ohio River.

Little is known concerning the origin of the Smalls1 . It is probable that the first members of the American branch of the family came from England (or possibly from Scotland) in colonial times. In the early days of the nineteenth century, George Small, with his wife and family, in company with some of their neighbors, sold out and left their homes in North Carolina. Those homes were located in the northeastern part of North Carolina in Pasquotank County2. In the case of the Smalls there is a well established tradition that one of their principal reasons for migrating was a conscientious objection to slaveholding.

The emigrants made their toilsome way northward and westward, crossed the Ohio and took up land on the spot where the flourishing city of Richmond, Indiana stands today. Later

260 Indiana Magazine of History

They moved to Waynetown, near Crewfordsville. Before the removal to Waynetown, however, John, son of George Small, met, courted and married Mary Lennington, whose people (Pennsylvanians) had descended the Allegheny and Ohio rivers on flatboats, settling first in Clark County, Indiana, and then near the Smalls on the site of the present Richmond.

John and Mary Lennington Small did not go with the rest of their relatives to Waynetown, but with their growing family of little children set out for the extreme northern part of the state, where, on the shore of Lake Michigan, a village was beginning to take shape, now the municipality of Michigan City. Here one Col. Elston was platting streets and building lots and John Small helped him in the work. That was about 1832 or 1833. In 1835 the young couple, both of whom had come from a race of farmers, decided to take up land. They bought from a squatter (afterwards obtaining title from the government) a tract of 120 acres in Clinton township, three miles south of Westville. There the family of eleven children, some of whom were born after removal to this farm, grew up and there on October 28, 1851, John Small died of typhoid fever, with the ravages of which the folk of that day were only too familiar.

Meanwhile Phineas, John Small's brother, had been with him on the farm. He married Mary Pinney, whose parents had moved to Indiana from Virginia. After John's death the old home place was purchased by this brother and it is today in the possession of Eudorus ("Dode") Reynolds, a grandson of Phineas and Mary Phinney Small.

Names and dates are only useful as sign-posts. The interesting scene, the colorful incident-everything, in short, that has to do with the places where those we love and from whom we are descended have lived anddied-must bekimned for us by one who knows. Such a one was O. L. Small, nineth child of John and Mary Lennington Small. One of his sisters died a few months before his father, another a few months after. Most of those that remained wandered far afield. The mother died on Marchg 27, 1874, in Girard, Kansas, whence several of her children had removed. Two of the brothers died in Illinois, one in Indiana, one in Texas, one in Califorina and one in New Orleans. A sister died in Nebraska and another sister in Colorado. When, on September 12, 1928, ""ncle Dick""(O. L. Small) breathed his last, he had been for more than three

Small: Up Form Dixie 261

years the sole survivor of his generation. Save for several business and pleasure trips that had taken him to the far west and on one occasion to Europe, his entire life had been spend within a short distance of his birthplace.

Very few indeed of the Smalls have become wealthy or distinguished. Most of us are still "to fortune and to fame unknown." But whether prosperous or otherwise we have liked to turn back to Uncle Dick and Aunt Alice (Alice Gardner Small, the lovable and remarkable woman to whom he was married in 1865 and who preceded him in death by five years.) We know that they were waiting for us with the work of welcome and a smile of cheer. Surrounded by his children, grand-children and great grand-children, Uncle Dick was a patriarch, lacking the patriarch's suggestion of extreme age. To hear him recount the events of a time sixty or seventy years earlier was to have painted for one a picture of northern Indiana, and especially of LaPorte county, beginnings.

A good deal of this reminiscence quite naturally clustered around the old Small place, now occupied, as has already been noted, by a grand-nephiew of John Small. Ninety years is a long time and about all there is left on the original farm to identify it with the past are three giant burr-oaks. They must be all of one hundred fifty years old, for they were already of ample size when Dick Small and his brothers, as barefoot boys, used to bask in their welcome shade. The old log cabin home eventually became a smokehouse and was succeeded by a good sized frame house, which, in its turn, gave place to another dwelling. The second house was moved to Westville, where for some time it was occupied by the local paper, the Westville Indicator. O. L. Small was the first and his son, Edmund Gardner Small, the last of the family to be born in that building.

The Indian mounds on the Reynolds farm, once of considerable size, can scarcely be traced now. Down in a remote corner there might have been found, as late as the summer of 1925, a few plants of the old fashioned tansy. In all probability they were descendants of seed sown by "Uncle Andy" and "Aunt Margaret". O. L. Small was the last one left who had known this quaint Negro couple. "Aunt Margaret," he said in his quiet, humorous was, "used to spank us, just like Mother." The negroes had their own little cabin on the Small place. How

261 Indiana Magazine of History

they came to Indiana is a matter of conjecture. Later on "Uncle Andy' went south with a trader, and as he never returned the belief arose that he had been sold into slavery. His wife went to Liberia with some missionaries to work among her race. Today, beyond a doubt, the bones of good old "Aunt Margaret" are resting in a grave somewhere in Africa.

Interesting also was Uncle Dick's description of the prairie's fertility in those early days. There was almost no clearing to be done and the soil that the pioneer's plow turned up was rich and virgin. Nor was social life without its amenities. The settlers were ambitious for their children and, so we were informed by Uncle Dick that his brother, Abram Lennington Small, eldest son in the family and known in later years as "Doc" or "Uncle Doc", was Westville's first school teacher. His son, Len Small has twice served as governor of Illinois.

John Small's sister, Rachel, married Jonathan Osborn, a relationship that is perpetuated in the Small-Osborn reunions, held annually. Jane Lennington, sister of Mray Lennington Small, married Jonathan Williams. The Williamses were Quakers and even in his last years Uncle Dick was wont to smile at the recollections of his boyhood visits at "Quakerdom", as the settlement was called, and of his attendance at "Qauker meeting". His younger brother Will used to recall the greeting of Uncle Jonathan Williams: "Make thyself at home, Willie. Thou art in thy uncle's house."

And so these tender memories come to us fro out the past. The writer would have much preferred that someone more competent than he undertake the task of setting them down. But no one offered. So he has fashioned as best he could, and in the fashioning he has been made happy."

1This brief treatment of the Small family is a revision of the account which was published in 1928 as a small pamphlet of ten pages. The writer is the son of James Forester Small and Susanna Pratt Small. My father was a brother of the O. L. Small ("Uncle Dick" Small) mentioned in the paper. Most of this information presented was gathered from my Uncle O. L. Small when I visited him in his Indiana home for the last time in June, 1925. He was born in 1844 and died in 1928. His wife Alice Gardner Small was born in 1847 and died in 1923. The mother of O. L. Small was a pious Methodist, who named him after two divines of that faith whom she respected highly. Since one was the Rev. Orange and the other the Rev Lemon, the boy was christened Orange Lemon Small. He disliked the name so much that he refused to use more than the initials, and chose for himself the name "Dick". Very few ever knew what the initials "O' and "L" stood for.

2 It was the tradition in both the Small and Osborn families until recently that the family of George Small migrated to Indiana from some part of South Carolina near the North Carolina border. This tradition was embodied in my pamphlet of 1928. It was Mr. B. F. Osborn of Rippey, Iowa, whose investigations established tha fact that the Small family lived in Pasquotank County, North Carolina. The U. S. Census of 1790, shows the Small family as residing there and not in South Carolina. Mrs. B. F. Osborn is a grandson of Rachel Small Osborn, daughter of John Small and Grand-daughter of George Small.
The John Small family record is here given from a copy reproduced on May 4, 1925, from an older copy made on April 25, 1875. By my Unicle Wiley Small for another of my uncles, William Murray Small, from the original entries.

She married HEZEKIAH LAMB May 20, 1836 in Grant Co., IN, son of JOHN LAMB and LYDIA MENDENHALL. He was born Jul 16, 1815 in Grant Co., IN, and died Mar 27, 1897 in North Branch, Jewell Co., KS.

Notes for HEZEKIAH LAMB:
Hezekiah Lamb, the oldest child of John Lamb and Lydia Mendenhall, was born 16 July 1815 in Wayne Co, IN. The full account of John Lamb's ancestors will be found in Part II. The full account of Lydia Mendenhall's ancestors will be found in Part III. This line is recorded as far back as years 300-400, the lines of King Alfred the Great of England, and William the Conqueror of England, Kings of Scotland, Ireland, Hungary, France, Germany, to Charlemaigne the first Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, who claimed to be descended from Julius Caesar.
Hezekiah was married in Grant Co. IN, to Hannah Small, who was born 5 Aug 1820, probably in Randolph Co. IN, daughter of Joshua Small and Jane Bowen. The full account of Hannah's ancestors will be found in Part IV.
Their oldest child was born five months before they were married. The Quaker record states that on 9 Mar 1836, Hannah was reprimanded for unchastity, but that she denied it. One can only read between the lines. Certainly, Hezekiah accepted James as his son. Their marriage license says the license was granted on the 20 May 1836 and that they were married on 20 May 1836 by a justice of the peace. To be married by a justice of the peace was contrary to Quaker discipline, and on 8 June 1836 at the Mississinewa-Marion MM, IN, note was made; he was condemned for misconduct. On 16 July 1841 Hezekiah was charged with non-attendance, and for not satisfying a just debt.
They had lived in Grant County about 17 years, when they decided to move west as many of the Quakers were doing then, including the Moormans, Winslows, and Piersons. They left IN with teams and covered wagons. Hezekiah and Hannah lived briefly in Fayette Co. IO, where their son Hale was born, then settled in Dallas Co. IO, until 1864, then moved to Fremont County in the southwest corner of IO, near the little town of Riverton. After his father's death, his mother Lydia, came to live with them for a time. There they finished raising their family. They had grandchildren who lived with them from time to time.
The Civil War was to cause them personal grief. They had two sons that enlisted in Iowa companies. Wilson Lamb marched with Sherman through Georgia, and came through safely, but his younger brother Joshua, died during the last days of the war. Joshua never saw his youngest brother, Luna Albert, born after he went away. Hannah saved many of their letters.


About 1881 Hezekiah and Hannah moved to Jewell Co, KS. With the exception of James who drifted a little south into MO, and Jane, Rebecca, and Mary Angeline, who were married and remained in IO, at least for a time, their children and their families also made another move west. Many of Silas' children moved to Custer Co. NE, though Silas stayed in IO until after the death of his wife in 1895. Jewell County lies on the Nebraska border, and the clans settled on both sides.
Hezekiah's farm was located three miles west and two south of Northbranch, straight north of Esbon, KS. It was a pretty little place between two small streams that met close by. It had a road that curved among the trees, and orchards and meadows. Today there are no buildings there. Northbranch, a Quaker community, once a thriving community, had a college, Friends' Academy, next door to the house where his son Hale lived after he retired. The Quaker cemetery where Hezekiah and Hannah were buried was across the street.
Hezekiah died 27 Mar 1897, at the age of 82, on the "homeplace" west of Northbranch, KS, in Jewell County. He died rather suddenly, and there was speculation that he had ptomaine poisoning. After the death of his father, Luna Albert, who was still unmarried at age 34, promised to take care of his mother the rest of her life. She was then 77. In return he was supposed to receive the farm. However, he was married shortly after that, to 18 year old Maud Wilson. The house had two rooms, and two baby boys came along shortly. The arrangement was not a happy one. Luna Albert decided to move to Ford Co. in southwest KS. After that, Hale and Mollie, who already had a large family, moved onto the place. They built a house for themselves, while Hannah lived in hers. After the death of Hannah, Hale used it to add extra space to his own house.
Hale's children remembered Grandma with great affection. She spoiled them and taught them to drink coffee. She told them a story about how she had Indian forbearers. This great granddaughter can find no evidence of such a thing, but the story still persists. Once, when a granddaughter remarked about the hole in her apron, Hannah turned it over and said, "Look, there's one on the other side, too."
Hannah died 1 Oct 1906, and was buried beside Hezekiah in the Quaker Cemetery in Northbranch, KS. The tombstone that now stands at the gravesite is not the original marker, (which was very small) and does not carry the correct birthday. Their son, John, seems to have been the one that put up the later one, because he thought the first one was wrong.

The Esbon Times for that week had this note: "The old lady Lamb died at the home of her son Hale north of town, last Sunday night, and was buried at the Stone Church Cemetery on Monday. She was 86 years old." The following week, 11 Oct 1906, the Burr Oak Herald carried this obituary: "Hannah Small was born 5 Aug 1820, died 1 Oct 1906, and married Hezekiah Lamb in 1836. She gave birth to 18 children, 11 of which survive her. She left 107 grandchildren, and approximately 140 great grandchildren, as near as can be traced, and 2 or 3 great great grandchildren."

There were at least 6 grandchildren born after her death. Today, it is hard to imagine what it would be like to have that many grandchildren. Apparently, she did try to keep track of them, although it is no wonder, that she did not know the exact number of great grandchildren. I wish I could have found her records. There must be someone in the family somewhere that has them. Luna Albert had a small Bible that had belonged to her, but did not carry family records.

My name is Conrad Small Nicoll. I am the grandson of Roscoe Reuben Small and
Louisa Estella Scheck whose marriage information I found on your web page.

I believe that Roscoe Reuben Small (b. 23 Apr 1876 in
Kansas) was the son of ?Irwin? Small and Edith Van Horn, but I know nothing
more of either of them.

Pearl Small m. Armistead Nash Bell 1917 NC

Posted by: Karen Worthington worthington@wmr1.k12.mo.us
Message: I am looking for further information on Pearl Small Bell. Pearl was born in Carteret County, NC on Sept 5, 1897. Her parents were Nannie Tucker and Jospeh Small. Pearl and Armistead had 11 children. She raised te family alone after Armistead's death in 1944. I am searching for ancestors of Pearl. Any information would be appreciated.

Karen Worthington" <worthington@wmr1.k12.mo.us>

We seem to have hit a problem here. it is obvious we are looking at the
same family, but according to the family Bible, we have have a problem.
Joseph Alexander Small was born Sept 22, 1862 in Harlowe. He married Nannie
Tucker on June 26, 1886. Joseph died in Nov 11, 1931. Nannie (Nancy) died
on June 20, 1959.

Lula Hardesty was born on Nov. 21, 1863, daughter of William and Sallie
Davenport. Lula married William nash Bell on Feb 13, 1889. They had eight
children, one of which, Armistead Nash Bell married Pearl Small, daughter of
Joseph Small and Nannie Tucker.

Pearl was born Sept 5, 1897 and died right before I was born in 1974.

Joseph was only married once, according to my grandmother, who was 6 when he
died and lived with Nannie during her last years (Nannie's). Joseph and
Nannie had a total of eight children: Pearl, Mattie, James, Farleigh,
Willie, Jospeh Alexander, Mary Annie, and Maebell.

Most of this info came straight out of the family bible or from my
grandmother, so I am pretty sure it is accurate.

Pearl married Armistead Nash Bell in 1917 and had 11 children: Cecil,
Blanche, Edsel, Lina (my grandmother), Eloise, David, Carl, Ray, Joseph,
Clyde, and Roger.

"Connie (Small) Beeson (about 60) [remember, this was in
1915] (b. ca. 1855. Wonder if CANDASSA SMALL b. 1845)
Amos Small (dead)
Martha (Small) Spires [m.?](Jim Spires)[here are notes in
shorthand which I unfortunately cannot entcypher]
Irene (Small) Buckner".

Mary Jane (Small) Hanchey's children are also listed:
"Nettie Small [again, something in shorthand] about 1872
[b. Feb. 16, 1872; d. Mar. 19, 1947; m. Buford Bailey,
1872-1952, on Dec. 12, 1898]
J.[efferson] Lee Hanchey Jun 17, 1884 [d. 1965; m. Nell
Whaling in Nov., 1913]
J.[esse] M.[urrell] Hanchey Nov 22, 1885 [this was my
grandfather, a doctor in Caddo Mills, TX; d. 1945;
m. Florence Lucy Brodhead in 1911]
Eva Hanchey [b. 1888] Died when 2 yrs old
Murty May Hanchey [b. 1890] Died when 11 yrs old
Bessie Jewel Hanchey [b. 1892; m. Robert Thomas DeMoss]
Vela Vay Hanchey Oct 24, 1894 married Joseph John
Dietrich on Oct 8, 1916 (Sunday) at Magda, La."

There is one more notation in this little book from 1915:
"Write Bill Wyatt & Rob't Wyatt at Pineville La. Regarding
Mary Jane (Small) Hanchey's relatives".I can only assume my grandmother
either never got an answer from them or never got around to writing them, as
I have not (yet) found anything more on the subject.

Although, this doesn't exactly clarify why Nettie had the surname Small, it
clarifies the Hanchey connection and I hope it has helped you further in
your research on Mary Jane Small. Please keep me posted.

Notes for ZACHARIAH THADEUS SMALL:
Birth and death confirmed by cemetery inscription

ZACARIAH T. SMALL, a prominent farmer of Posey Township,
was born near his present place of residence August 30, 1850.
He was the son of Josiah and Susannah (Maggard) Small, natives
of North Carolina and Virginia, respectively. The former, who was
the son of Abraham and Delilah Small, was born February 13,
1812, and his wife was just one day his senior, being born Febru-
ary 12, 1812. He was reared upon a farm, and in winter he at-
tended the district school, but the advantages were poor, and
consequently his early education was but ordinary. His marriage
to Miss Mattie Holding occurred January 13, 1870 She was born
in Shelby County, May 31, 1853, being the daughter of John and
Lydia A. (Cannon) Holding, natives of Pennsylvania and Indiana, ,
respectively. Immediately after their marriage Mr. and Mrs.
Small settled upon the farm they now occupy, where the former
has ever since given his attention to agricultural pursuits. He
owns a fine farm of 240 acres, nearly 200 of which are in an excellent
state of cultrvatlon. His farm contains a handsome little residence,
and improved as it is in other respects, it is one of the most desir-
able locations in the county. Mr. Small and wife have had four
children: Crilla, born November 22, 1870; Estella, born July 8,
1873; Riley, born April 4, 1879, and Rufus K., born September
22, 1883, died August 22, 1884. Our subject and his wife are
members of the Friends' Church. In politics, Mr. Small is a Re-
publican. From the 1888 publication by Brant & Fuller, History of Rush
County Indiana (Note: at this time Roy Morton Small had not been born.)
=================================================
I know through family records and other sources that Abraham is the
patriarch of this group.

Abraham, according to records I've found elsewhere although I didn't write
down the source when I found it long ago, is the son of Obediah and Elizabeth
Symons, I think from Hinshaw, Pasquatonk MM, NC. This Obediah is the son of
Obediah Small and Lydia Bundy. My second Obediah would be a brother of
Gideon mentioned in the email from Deb.

The earlier Obediah & Sarah Symons and John & Alce Hollowell I have no proof
of and you've convinced me they were not a part of this family. It was
always confusing anyway because some of the dates didn't quite mesh. I admit my
source for that was someone I don't know, but she assured me she had paid a
genealogist a lot of money to research this line. So much for paying a lot of
money I guess. I've read of several researchers from the past (not on the
Small line) that were pure charlatans, fabricated whatever they wanted to make
a buck. I'm not saying that is the case here, but there definitely is some
confusion. What I've found in the Hinshaw Records I have on a cd don't mesh
with those earlier two either.

Jill

p.s. Abraham and his wife and Josiah and his wife are buried at the friends
cemetery behind the church in Carthage. Since then all family members have
been buried in Asbury Cemetery, Morristown, Hanover Twp, Shelby County IN.

Joseph J. Small
The most elaborate history is necessarily an abridgment, the historian necessarily being compelled to select his facts and materials from a multitude of details. So in every live of honor and usefulness the biographer finds no dearth of incident, and yet in summing up the career of any man the writer needs touch only the most salient points, giving only the keynote of the character, but eliminating much that is superfluous. Consequently in calling the reader's attention to the life record of the worthy gentleman whose name heads this paragraph no attempt shall be made to recount all the important acts in his useful life, nor recite every interesting incident in his somewhat remarkable career, for it is deemed that only a few of them will suffice to show him to be eminently worthy of a place in this volume along with his fellows of high standing and recognized worth.

Joseph J. Small was born in Franklin Township, Grant County, Indiana, October 25, 1846, the son of Gideon and Dinah (Marshall) Small. The Small family came from North Carolina. The Father married in Henry county Indiana, and came to Grant County in 1845, settling in the woods, which he soon cleared and made a farm. Later he traded for another and cleared it up. He moved to Howard County in 1865, locating in Monroe Township, where he farmed successfully until his death, his first wife having preceded him to the grave. He married again and his second wife is also now deceased. He had eight children by his first marriage, four of whom are now living. None are living in Howard County but the subject.

Our subject was nineteen years old when he came to Howard County. He had attended the common schools in Grant County and the New London high school until he had a fairly good education. Jennie Small, a half sister, is assistant superintendent of the school at Elwood, Indiana, which position she has held for fifteen years with great credit. She is highly educated, being a graduate of the State Normal.

On November 18, 1868, the subject was married to Maria Stout of New London. She was born May 26, 1846, near Paoli, Orange County this state. The ceremony which made them man and wife was performed in the Quaker church, according to Quaker usages. One son has been born to this union, Daniel E., born Sept 27, 1869. He is a graduate of the New London high school and married Ella E. Newlin. They reside in Kokomo, where he is engaged in the real estate business and is considered one of the leading young business men of the city. Both the subject and his wife have birthrights in the Quaker church, and have always borne a reputation for honesty and uprightness, being highly respected by all who know them. In 1883 Mr. Small and family moved to Grant County where he purchased a farm and lived on the same fifteen years. He then moved to Marion and was engaged in carpenter work until 1901, since which time he has lived in Howard County.

Mrs. Small has four brothers and one sister, all living, the sister being a resident of Marion, Indiana, and the wife of John Q. Thomas. The brothers are: Edwin Stout, who lives on East Sycamore street, Kokomo, engaged in the gardening business: Albert Stout is in the undertaking business at Russiaville Indiana: Charles is a newspaper man and lives in Georgia: Louis is a Quaker preacher living at Plainfield this state.

Politically Mr. Small is a Prohibitionist and his influence in this work has long been felt for good. However, he has never sought public attention or been especially active in this work. The Smalls have a substantial and nicely furnished home at 711 South Union Street and he has a half interest in a feed store on Home Avenue, where a good business is done, and excellent trade having been built up since the subject began this line. Mr. Small was a thorough farmer, and during his long business career has acquired a competency.

Mrs. Small has belonged to the Woman's Christian Temperance Union for thirty-five years, being one of the seven noble characters who organized the society at New London, Howard County. She is still an active worker and a hearty supporter of the cause and both she and Mr. Small hold high rank among the public spirited, generous and kindly citizens of Kokomo.

Records listed in this genealogy were extracted primarily from research trips to Hege Library at Guilford College in Greensboro NC, NC State Archives and the State Library of NC in Raleigh NC. Many records were also obtained from Hinshaws volumes due to the time required to search the actual records at Hege Library. All NC wills were obtained from the State archives and copies of these are on file with the author of this work. True copies could not be scanned or placed on the website due to the size of this record, and the condition of some of the records prohibit their being readable except in transcription form.

NC State Archives allows the researcher to search the folders which contain the original documents, which is a rewarding experience to be able to hold documents that are almost three hundred years old. This is about to change since the documents are becoming fragile, they are in process of copying everything and placing the originals out of the hands of the public.

Other researchers have contributed to this work, many quoting from personal records held by family members, their assistance and contribution is greatly appreciated. No other genealogies were used to create this final work, because many were found to be inaccurate, and in many cases, were copied without anyone checking sources of those who did actually do the research. This has eliminated much speculation and guesswork from the overall work and is now based on reliable sources.
