Generation  One

Edward Insco.
Born abt 1677 in England. Edward died in Virginia.

Abt 1698 when Edward was 21, he married Mary Dugtale, in Essex Co., VA. Born abt 1677 in England.

Known  child:

i Abner Insco (~1700-1760)

  Alternate spellings: Enscoe, Inscoe, Insco, Inscore, Enscore (possibly also with this group - Insko).

Edward, Mary Dugtale and 21 others traveled to the colonies from England with Richard Covington in 1694.  They most likely came with him under the English indentured service system - a common practice in that era.  When these indentured servants were granted certificate of their own incorporation (freedom), they were usually given 50 acres of land as promised under this system.  Edward and Mary were both granted their freedom on 10 Apr 1712.  The land they received was along the Rappahannock River on the northeast coast of VA.  On 9 Oct 1712, Edward gave evidence in a court case and no other reference to him has been found after that.

Generation  Two

Abner Insco. Born abt 1700 in Essex Co., VA. Abner died in Essex Co., VA in Dec 1760, he was 60.  He married UNKNOWN.

Notes for ABNER INSCO:  Between 1754 and 1756, Abner lived in Orange Co., VA.  By 1760, he had moved back to Essex Co. where he died in Dec 1760.  An inventory of his estate was completed and his son, James, was administrator.

Generation Four

James Insco , Jr. Born on 23 Apr 1765. James died bef 1858, he was 92.  Abt 1787 when James was 21, he married Honour XXXX, in VA. Born abt 1768. Honour died bef 1858, she was 90.

Notes for JAMES INSCO, JR.:  James was in the Revolutionary War and received pay as a soldier in the militia.  In 1780, he and Honour sold 184 acres of land for 2,000 lbs. He was in the Mecklenburg Co. tax roles in 1782 and 1784.   Other land transactions were recorded for James between 1798 and 1807.

After the war, both he and his father were plagued with money problems. In 1787 they were on the list of "insolvents and nonresidents returned by Jn. Wilson, Jr., Dpty Collector for Hy. Walker, late Sheriff of Mecklenburg for the year 1787:  James Insco Senr. 1 horse, Do; James Insco, Jr. 1 horse, Do."  In 1788, they were on a second list:  "At a court held for Mecklenburg County the 14th day of July 1788.  This List of Insolvents and nonresidents was returned into Court by Lewis Green one of the undersheriffs of this county sworn to by the said Lewis & ordered to be certified."

James Insco and Honour Unknown had the following children:

i Daniel Insco (1788-1872)
ii John Insco  Born abt 1792.
iii James Insco  Born abt 1797.
iv Peter Insco Born abt 1800.  On 5 Nov 1827 when Peter was 27, he married Polly Brasley, in Mecklenburg Co., VA.
v William Insco  Born abt 1807.  On 1 Jan 1828 when William was 21, he married Lucy Hawkins, in Mecklenburg Co., VA.
vi Thomas Insco  (1807-~1852)  my line, more below

Generation Five

Thomas Insco. Born on 25 Jun 1807 in Mecklenburg Co., VA. Thomas died in KY BET. 1852 - 1858, he was 44.  On 24 Dec 1833 when Thomas was 26, he married Martha Creedle, daughter of Drury Creedle & Martha "Patsy" Mason, in Mecklenburg Co., VA. Born on 20 Mar 1813 in Mecklenburg Co., VA. Martha died in Logan Co., KY BET. 1870 - 1880, she was 56.  See my Creedle and Mason lines.

Notes for THOMAS INSCO:  His name may be David Thomas (Sr.) or Thomas David. Thomas was listed as the head of a family on 1830 census for Mecklenburg Co.:  two males and one female 0-5, one female 5-10, one male 30-40 and one female 20-30.

In the 1840 Mecklenburg Co. census (Mecklenburg Co VA census of 1840, copyright 1975 by Don Simmons).  The household of 6 included: 2 males age 0-5 (James David & J.W.); 1 male age 30-40 (Thomas); 1 female age 0-5 (Caroline E.); 1 female age 5-10 (Sarah J.); and 1 female age 20-30 (Martha).

In the 1850 Logan Co. Census, there is a David Inscoe, age 45, carpenter, from VA living with the W. F. Edmonson family also from Mecklenburg Co., VA.  It's very possible this is the missing Thomas.  The age is right. It could be that he went to Logan Co. with the Edmonson's (via TN since one Edmonson child was born there about 1848, age 2 in 1850) and then when they settled, he sent for his family.  The first of Thomas's family to marry there was in 1853.  By 1860, Martha is listed as the head of the household which supports the theory that he died between 1852-1858.

Logan Co., KY Settlement Book I, Page 34, contains an account of the settlement of the estate of David Insco/e (spelled both ways in the documents).  Administrator was Wesley F. Edmonson.  It appears to be debts left by David at a general store (ribbon, hats, buttons, suspenders, etc.).  He died in either 1855 or early 1856 and his debts were finally settled in Oct 1857.  He owed $27.85 as near as I can tell (other payments were made but not included in the final amount).  No mention is made of any heirs.

According to A. B. Willhite (Logan Co. genealogist) in Oct 2000, the birth dates of Thomas, Martha and their children came from an Insco family bible which was in the possession of Frank Head of Lewisburg, KY. Mr. Head has since died and the whereabouts of the bible is unknown.

Notes for MARTHA CREEDLE:  Alternate spellings: Credle, Credile, Cradle.

The marriage license for Martha and Thomas lists Bryant Creedle as surety and Martha Creedle as giving consent for the marriage {1740-1850 Marriages of Mecklenburg County, VA}.  Bryant was her brother and Martha was her mother {Irene Underwood, June 1999; Shelby Puckett, Oct 2000}.

The 1850 Mecklenburg Co census lists Martha with seven of their eight children.  Thomas and J.W. are not listed and no further information has been located about them - except that I really believe the David Insco in the 1850 Logan Co. census is Thomas.  I also believe the J.W. in the bible record (Christine Insco) is actually Peter.  In the 1860 Logan Co census, Martha, daughters Martha and Mary, and sons James D. and David T. are in one household; son Peter W. and his wife are in another household; daughter Caroline is in the next house; and daughter Sarah is in the same district several houses away.  In the 1870 census, Martha is living with Peter and his family.  She does not appear in the 1880 census.

Thomas Insco and Martha Creedle  had the following children:

i Sarah J. Insco (1834-1917)
ii Caroline E. Insco  (1836-1899)
iii James David Insco  (1837-1924) my line more below.
iv J. W. Insco  Born on 9 Jun 1840 in Mecklenburg Co., VA. J. W. died bef 1850, he was 9.
v Mary E. Insco  (1843-1875)
vi Martha A. Insco  Born on 24 Sep 1845 in Mecklenburg Co., VA. Martha A. died aft 1900, she was 54.  On 19 Sep 1877 when Martha A. was 31, she married John Cox. Born abt 1845. John died bef 1900, he was 55.
vii Peter Washington Insco  (1847->1900)
viii David Thomas Insco  Born on 17 Jul 1848 in Mecklenburg Co., VA. David Thomas died in Logan Co., KY on 24 Sep 1921, he was 73. Buried in Center Burying Ground.  On 12 Jan 1876 when David Thomas was 27, he married Emily R. Simmons, daughter of Samuel Simmons & Sarah "Sally" Creedle. Born abt 1831 in Mecklenburg Co., VA. Emily R. died bef 1921, she was 90.

Generation Six

Buried in Logan Co., KY Cemeteries, 1986.  On 28 Feb 1861 when James David was 23, he married Sarah "Sallie" Wilson, daughter of James Thomas Wilson & Zillie Wilson, in Robertson Co., TN. Born on 17 Oct 1840 in VA. Sarah "Sallie" died in Logan Co., KY on 8 Aug 1909, she was 68.

Notes for JAMES DAVID INSCO:  Deed Book 60, page 185, 9 Jul 1883.  James K. Bradley and A. A. Bradley, his wife, sold James 65 acres of land in Logan Co. on Laurel Creek. James paid $154 cash and signed a note for an additional $204 to be paid within 12 months (by Jul 1884).

Samuel is not in the 1880 census but he was born in 1871.  An infant son born Sep 1879 is listed.  In the 1900 census, it shows four children with three living.  Was Samuel a son or not?

Before 1893, J. W. Hutchings purchased the James F. Arnold homestead.  On 23 Sep 1893, he gave Samuel Arnold, Jr., and Ernest Arnold title to a piece of land on the old Arnold homestead for a promise.  The promise was that the piece of land would be used solely as a burying ground.

James is listed in the Cemeteries Book, 1986, index but not on the inscription pages.  According to Christine Insco, he was buried at Arnold Cemetery but did not have a tombstone.  In a letter from the KY Vital Statistics, no death certificate was filed for James D. Burial: Arnold Cemetery, Logan Co., KY

Notes for SARAH "SALLIE" WILSON:  Logan County KY Cemeteries, call #R929.50976976 L831, 1986 lists Sarah's birth date as 17 Oct 1848 and death 8 Aug 1909.

Sue Lyn published a book on Sarah Sallie Wilson's family history in 1999.

According to the History of Logan County book, Sarah paid $62.50 and purchased the old log church across the field from the Arnold cemetery. She and James lived there until their death.  A new church was built and named after the new pastor, Mr. Hope.

In a deed dated 23 Apr 1928, Robert and Nancy Spencer sold one acre of land known as Arnold Cemetery to the New Hope General Baptist Church.
