MIKE MONROE CONTRIBUTION mlmonro@infi.net

I have stumbled upon a letter written by Mrs. Rebecca Mackay (Smith) dated 11-July-1860. The four page letter discusses her children, their spouses, and her grandchildren, as of July 1860. You have John M Gooch married to Sarah Louisa Smith, born about 1815. Sarah Louisa Smith was the 3rd child of Mrs. Rebecca Mackay Smith. Sarah Louisa Smith was born 13-July-1815, married to J M Gooch on 22-December-1835.
Sarah and John's children:

1) Julia Ann Gooch has the correct birthdate

2) Mary Jane Gooch was born 26-March-1838

3) Thomas Jefferson Gooch has the correct birthdate

4) William Daniel Gooch has the correct birthdate

5) James Elijah Gooch is different in this letter --- it says 3-January-1845.... you have 22-January-1845.

6) Leah Rebecca was born 28-August-1850, and Leah died 18-July-1858 according to the letter..... you have born "about 1850" and died in 1859.

7) Joseph Franklin Gooch was born 29-July-1856.

I don't know anything else about the family after July 1860, but I can track back Sarah Louisa Smith's parents ( Elisha Smith & Rebecca Mackay ), Sarah's maternal Grandparents ( William Lewis Mackay & Elizabeth Ashbrook ), and William Lewis Mackay's parents ( Alexander Mackey, Jr and Susannah Lewis ).

The Mackay's were notorious for shifting their name... McKay, Mackay, McKey, Mackey were all variations they used back through time and in the various branches of the family. Alexander Mackey, Sr. was reportedly the immigrant from Scotland to Virginia that brought the Mackey line to the United States.

Susannah Lewis's father was David Lewis ( born in New Kent County and baptized in St Peters Parish in May 1695 ), and he died in Albemarle County, Virginia, sometime around August 1779 since his executors presented his will for processing at September Court 1779 in Albemarle County. Susannah's mother was Anne Terrell many people add "Betty" to her name, although as yet I can't find any reliable source to substantiate that. Nobody knows when Anne Terrell was born, although the best guess is + or - 5 years from David's baptism which would make her born between 1690 - 1700. Best guess is that she was born in New Kent County, Virginia. Anne Terrell died in January 1734 and left 8 children under the age of 17. All 8 survived.

There was a book written by a man named William Terrell Lewis, published in March 1893, that has information concerning the generations of David Lewis & Anne Terrell, Alexander Mackey Jr & Susannah Lewis, William Lewis Mackay & Elizabeth Ashbrook, and Elisha Smith & Rebecca Mackay.

That may be too far out on the tree to be of interest to you, or perhaps you already know of it.

The letter I mentioned was obtained by William Terrell Lewis and used to help write his book.

MIKE MONROE CONTRIBUTION mlmonro@infi.net

I have stumbled upon a letter written by Mrs. Rebecca Mackay (Smith) dated 11-July-1860. The four page letter discusses her children, their spouses, and her grandchildren, as of July 1860. You have John M Gooch married to Sarah Louisa Smith, born about 1815. Sarah Louisa Smith was the 3rd child of Mrs. Rebecca Mackay Smith. Sarah Louisa Smith was born 13-July-1815, married to J M Gooch on 22-December-1835.
Sarah and John's children:

1) Julia Ann Gooch has the correct birthdate

2) Mary Jane Gooch was born 26-March-1838

3) Thomas Jefferson Gooch has the correct birthdate

4) William Daniel Gooch has the correct birthdate

5) James Elijah Gooch is different in this letter --- it says 3-January-1845.... you have 22-January-1845.

6) Leah Rebecca was born 28-August-1850, and Leah died 18-July-1858 according to the letter..... you have born "about 1850" and died in 1859.

7) Joseph Franklin Gooch was born 29-July-1856.

I don't know anything else about the family after July 1860, but I can track back Sarah Louisa Smith's parents ( Elisha Smith & Rebecca Mackay ), Sarah's maternal Grandparents ( William Lewis Mackay & Elizabeth Ashbrook ), and William Lewis Mackay's parents ( Alexander Mackey, Jr and Susannah Lewis ).

The Mackay's were notorious for shifting their name... McKay, Mackay, McKey, Mackey were all variations they used back through time and in the various branches of the family. Alexander Mackey, Sr. was reportedly the immigrant from Scotland to Virginia that brought the Mackey line to the United States.

Susannah Lewis's father was David Lewis ( born in New Kent County and baptized in St Peters Parish in May 1695 ), and he died in Albemarle County, Virginia, sometime around August 1779 since his executors presented his will for processing at September Court 1779 in Albemarle County. Susannah's mother was Anne Terrell many people add "Betty" to her name, although as yet I can't find any reliable source to substantiate that. Nobody knows when Anne Terrell was born, although the best guess is + or - 5 years from David's baptism which would make her born between 1690 - 1700. Best guess is that she was born in New Kent County, Virginia. Anne Terrell died in January 1734 and left 8 children under the age of 17. All 8 survived.

There was a book written by a man named William Terrell Lewis, published in March 1893, that has information concerning the generations of David Lewis & Anne Terrell, Alexander Mackey Jr & Susannah Lewis, William Lewis Mackay & Elizabeth Ashbrook, and Elisha Smith & Rebecca Mackay.

That may be too far out on the tree to be of interest to you, or perhaps you already know of it.

The letter I mentioned was obtained by William Terrell Lewis and used to help write his book.
