Marriage*say 1723 He married Sarah Norwood say 1723.1 
Death*1752 He died at Southampton Co., Virginia, in 1752. 
Biography* Thomas Clark, son of Thomas and Susannah Clark, was born in Isle of Wight Co., Va., about 1702-5, and died in Southampton Co., Va. in 1752. He married Sarah Norwood, daughter of Richard and Elizabeth Norwood of Isle of Wight Co. (for her ancestry see V.H.G. pp. 333ff). Thomas Clark's will, dated Dec. 1, 1750, and probated in Southampton Co. Feb. 13, 1752, leaves a rather large personal estate and considerable areas of land in Lunenburg Co., Va., to his wife Sarah, daughter Frances, and sons John, James, Jesse, Jordan Thomas, and Carter Clark (Southampton W.B. "A" p. 72). All the sons moved to Lunenburg Co., Va. (later Mecklenburg Co.) almost immediately after their father's death.

James Clark married Hannah --------- and died in Mecklenburg Co. in 1785, while his wife Hannah died in the same county in 1809, both their wills being extant in the Mecklenburg records. Their children were:
(1) Sarah Clark who married Abel Farrar Aug. 11, 1789;
(2) Elizabeth Clark who m. David Holmes Jan. 15, 1790;
(3) Jordan Clark;
(4) Diana Clark who married George W. Brame April 9, 1804, and had a son James H. Brame mentioned in her mother's will.

Jesse Clark died unmarried in Mecklenburg Co. in 1770, his will, dated Dec. 24, 1769, and probated March 12, 1770, leaving all his property to his brothers John, James and Carter Clark (W.B.I, p. 59).

Jordan Thomas Clark apparently died unmarried in Mecklenburg Co. in 1767, and on April 14, 1767, John, James and Carter Clark deeded to Jesse Clark a negro belonging to the estate of Jordan Thomas Clark (Mecklenburg D.B. 1, p. 459).

Carter Clark, the youngest of his brothers, was an Ensign and later a Lieutenant in the Mecklenburg Co. mil. in 1778, during the Revolution, and married Martha Farrar in Mecklenburg Co., Nov. 9, 1778. He died in Mecklenburg Co. in 1828, his will, dated Dec. 13, 1827, and probated Jan. 21, 1828, showing the following children:
(1) Frances Clark;
(2) Lucy Clark;
(3) Jesse Clark (b. 1781-2);
(4) Sarah Clark m. Martin Jones;
(5) Elizabeth O. R. Clark m. Milton Robinson;
(6) Thomas N. Clark, deceased when his father made his will, leaving a widow Wilmouth Clark, and

Birth*circa 1730 Thomas was born at Virginia circa 1730.1 
Marriage*circa 1748 He married Rachel Jones circa 1748. 
American Revolution*between 1775 and 1783 He provided service in the American Revolutionary War between 1775 and 1783.1 
Death*1799 He died at Hancock Co., Georgia, in 1799. 
Biography* The records of Thomas Harvey are few, but there is reason to believe that he was associated with the best element of people who came into Georgia just prior to the Revolution. Indications point to the fact that the Harveys and Kendricks and Talbots composed a group or part of a group who migrated from "Southside" Virginia and the Roanoke River section of North Carolina, entering Georgia by way of Wilkes and Columbia counties, moving gradually across Georgia in a southeasterly direction through Hancock and Washington into Baldwin and Jones and Putnam and Clarke Counties, then across the Okmulgee River after 1820 to the counties of Houston, Sumter and Stewart, some of them finally entering Alabama and West Florida, others passing on to Louisiana and eventually to Texas.
     The records of Lunenburg County, Va., contain the names of several Harveys whose Christian names coincide with those who settled in Georgia in later generations; likewise the records of Bute County, N.C., mention several Kendricks of similar name to the Middle Georgia Kendricks shown by the 1820 census. In "Sunlight on the Southside," Professor Landon Bell lists the name of John Harvey and of Michael Harvey on the tax roll of 1749, and the names of John Harvey, William Harvey, Thomas Harvey and Thomas Harvey Jr. on the tax list of 1764.
     Thomas Harvey of Hancock County, Ga., is said to have been born in Virginia about 1730, and it is possible he could have been one of those of the name mentioned in the preceding paragraph. The Harvey family appears to have lived somewhere in the territory of the Upper Roanoke River, Cub Creek and Falling River in Lunenburg County. They are not listed in that county after 1764 but in Charlotte County, which was formed from Lunenburg in 1765. There is found the will of Thomas Harvey who died in 1782 leaving "lands in Georgia" to his sons John, William, Thomas and Blasingame Harvey and his daughters Sarah Howell, Frances Harvey, Elizabeth Paulett and Drucilla Harvey. Blasingame Harvey and the Howells and Pauletts came with the younger Thomas Harvey to Georgia and settled in Jefferson County and Hancock County.
     Thomas... John, Michael, Evan and James Harvey were soldiers in the Revolution under General Elijah Clark. History records the almost complete subjugation of Georgia by the British during the early years of the struggle, the upper country being laid waste to such an extent that "the women and children were taken over the mountains to the Holston Country as farming was impossible, the cattle driven off, and starvation threatened," between 1779 and 1781. Many refugeed to South Carolina but returned when the fortunes of the American Cause were revived and a goodly portion of the state regained.
     Knight's Roster of Georgia Soldiers of the Revolution contains the name of Thomas Harvey.
     The Minutes of the Executive Council of Georgia show grants of land to Thomas Harvey and his sons, 300 acres being allotted to Thomas Harvey, November 18, 1783, and 287 1/2 acres November 17, 1784.
     Thomas Harvey resided near Powellton in Hancock County prior to his death which occurred about 1799. His four sons (sic)(actually brothers), John, Michael, Evan and James, signed a deed as administrators of his estate in December, 1802. Tradition gives the name of his wife in one instance as Rachael and in another as Mary Manna - there is no certain record on this point so far discovered, and both given names are found in the list of the children of his son (actually, brother), John Harvey.1 
Research note* The research of Jack Marler (see: www.crosswinds.net/~marlerjc/)
and of Alton L. Harvey (e-mail address), author of The Thomas P. Harvey, Sr., Family, and The John Harvey (1720-1772) of the Edgefield District, SC, suggests that Thomas Harvey is not, as some have reported, the father of James, Michael, John and Evan Harvey, but their brother:
     "The elder Thomas Harvey, in 1785, was residing in Wilkes County, Georgia. He was a soldier in the army of Col. Elijah Clarke, from Georgia, during the Revolutionary War. There is record, dated 2 October 1784, of his authorization to receive pay for service in the regiment of Colonel Samuel Hammond. Previous to the War, in 1765, he had obtained grants of land in South Carolina. For the terminus ad quem of his date of death (29 February 1792), see (1) Court of Greene County, Georgia, 3 April 1792, Letters of Administration for the Estate of Thomas Harvey, in the DAR Library, Washington, D. C. and (2) Bienville Parish Historical Society, History of Bienville Parish, p. 134, in the Jackson Parish Library, Jonesboro, Louisiana. A terminus a quo often suggested for his date of death (1779) is to be found in Texas Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Texas Daughters Revolutionary Ancestors (1976), p. 978, in the Abilene Public Library, Abilene, Texas. Certainly, at the beginning of 1779, he was residing in Hancock County, Georgia.
     "Greene County, Georgia: Harvey, Thomas, deceased: John Harvey of Washington County, Georgia, Michael Harvey, Evan Harvey and James Harvey of Greene County, Georgia applied for letters of administration on 3 April 1792 in Greene County, Georgia [Source: Georgia Intestate Records, by Jeanette Holland Austin, Genealogical Publishing Company, 1996, p. 139]
     "Because Thomas HARVEY died intestate, his estate was administered by his brothers John, Michael, Evan, and James. Casual investigators have jumped to the conclusion that the John, Michael, Evan, and James HARVEY by whom Thomas's estate was administered must have been his sons. But, at the time of his death, Thomas HARVEY had no adult (21 years of age or older) male children by whom his estate could have been legally administered. Thus, by fathering Thomas HARVEY onto his own brothers, careless reporters of this line have wreaked considerable havoc. Chief among these have been Mr. and Mrs. John Bennett Boddie in Historical Southern Families, vol. 1 (1957)."

Death*20 April 1782 He died at Fairfield District, South Carolina, on 20 April 1782.3 
Biography* From John Whitaker, II, through his son, Hudson, and from James Whitaker, through his daughter, Martha, are descended the Whitaker family, who have lived in Baldwin County for more than a century. Soon after the Revolutionary War, three veterans of this war, Major Francis Boykin, and Capt. James Cantey, both of Camden, S. C., and ensign Hudson Whitaker of Halifax County, N. C., came to make their home in what is now the extreme southeastern part of Baldwin County, (then Washington County.) They brought their families with them, all related by blood or marriage. They also brought slaves to cultivate the fertile soil. In 1785 a deed to 287 1/2 acres of land was made to Francis Boykin and Zachariah Cantey, by Philip Logan, for the consideration of 100 pounds sterling. This land, which was bounded on the southwest by the Oconee River, on the southeast by an island, on all other sides by vacant land, had been granted to Samuel Bloodworth, in 1784. Here Maj. Francis Boykin with his wife, Catherine Whitaker, established a home, where he lived until his death, in 1821. He was buried very near this home. His grave has recently been discovered and will be marked by the Nancy Hart Chapter, D. A. R. They reared a family of three children, Samuel, James, and Eliza. The last named married William Rutherford. In course of time, Major Boykin and his children came into possession of all the vacant land between his original plantation and Town Creek, nearly 3000 acres, now owned by J. W. Shinholser. His son, Dr. Samuel Boykin, built the house known as the Samuel E. Whitaker home. In 1798, Capt. James Cantey, with his wife, Martha Whitaker, established a home near the Oconee river, between Gum and Town creeks. Here they reared a family of four children: John, James Willis, Mary, and Sarah. Zachariah, the third son, died in youth. John Cantey was Brigadier Major in the War of 1812. He returned to Camden, where he married Emma Susannah Richardson and lived there until his death in 1854.4

Janet Hunter 2 writes:

I have Royalist Dr. Arthur JOHNSTON/JOHNSON, one of King CharlesII physicians, who with his possible wife Barbara GORDON and children leaves Aberdeen when seized by the Covenanters to live with married daughter in Oxford, England.

His son Edward Johnson (apparently converted to Quakerism in England?) marries at age 39 in 1677 Elizabeth WALKER, daughter of Alexander Walker, shortly after his arrival in New Kent Co VA, ca 1677. Alexander Walker, who travelled with Edward Johnson, had been excommunicated for being a Quaker. With Walkers and Johnsons was William EDMUNSON, one of the fathers of NC Quakers.

Edward Johnson and Elizabeth Walker are believed to be the parents of Penelope Johnson who married Capt.Christopher CLARKE (b. 1681, Nansemond VA, d. 1754, Louisa Co VA), son of Micajah Clark and Sallie Anne MOORMAN. However, some records show this Christopher Clarke to have married Penelope BOLLING. Of course, there is a tendency to favor the Bolling marriage because then you get to claim Pocohontas and other lines.

Also, William and George Rogers Clark, famous expeditioners, etc., also are claimed by this Clark family, which goes many lines beyond Micajah that I haven't started to digest. This Christopher Clarke, according to the Penelope Johnson camp, was said to have joined the Quakers later, in the 1740s. ?? He is also said to have patented land in 1722 with one Nicholas Meriwether in Hanover, where Clark was a tobacco planter, militia captain and justice of the peace. They were large landowners in Hanover, Albemarle and Louisa Cos.

I am particularly interested in whether any of you are familiar with this Clark controversy? Did Christopher Clarke marry Penelope Bolling or Penelope Johnson?

Carol McCrite 1 writes:

My grandmother was a hobbiest-genealogist from 1925 through 1945. She and my grandfather worked together on family history and I was the beneficiary of an Ancestry Chart that has proven to be a treasure trove.

Most of my mother's family migrated from VA to Wilkes Co., GA, then over to Gwinnett and Barrow. The Anthony and Blakey line I follow came to Wilkes after the Am Revolution.

My grandmother was extremely meticulous with her research and I have found VERY few mistakes as I have attempted to verify her work. I have an Ancestry Journal she wrote in long hand with each family tree, dates of birth and death, and even some side "notes" when she received information worthy of penning it for future generations.

Penelope Anthony is listed on her ancestry chart as Penelope Bolling Clarke, wife of Christopher Clarke and mother of Elizabeth Clarke. Bolling is a family name that continued down through my great-great grandfather, Bolling Anthony Blakey, grandson of Churchill and Agnes Anthony Blakey.

With help from several other genealogists in GA and two who are "specialists" in Wilkes County history, I have found a surplus of the name BOLLING in almost every line of the family. In fact, I was able to untangle the confusion of at least three men whose genealogy had been entwined. I say "I" but actually I give credit to my grandmother's excellent recording from family Bibles, letters, etc. I have found that when a name re-appears generation after generation it solidifies the ancestry. There is NO Johnson in any of Anthony family names, I might add.

Penelope Bolling Clarke was the daughter of John Bolling and Mary Kenyon. John's father was Robert Bolling, husband of Jane Rolfe. Jane's father was Thomas Rolfe, the ONLY child of John and Rebecca Rolfe (she is known as "Pocahontas" the famous Algonquin Indian princess who befriended Capt John Smith. (Pocahuntas-Culpepper connection at: http://gen.culpepper.com/historical/legends/indian.htm#Pocahontas)

Penelope, in my grandmother's ancestry chart, is the missing link in terms of birth, marriage and death dates, places. There was plenty preceding her name and certainly plenty following that name, but she had penned in "Penelope Bolling" as the wife of Christopher Clarke and left it at that. Since so much material is available on the John Rolfe-Pocahontas lineage, it was not difficult obtaining the information in descending order rather than the usual ascendency method.

I will list the families beginning with Joseph Anthony, Sr to John and Rebecca Rolfe.

Miscellaneous28 April 1804 The earliest school whose location is definitely known was in Powelton for on April 28,1804, John Michael, "for and in consideration of the love of learning," gave half an acre of land to James Harvey, William Lee, Sampson Duggar, Thomas Cooper and John Michael as trustees of the Powelton school "lately built" on the site. He also conveyed the privilege of using water from the spring convenient thereto. This school was a predecessor of Powelton Academy founded in 1811 and incorporated in 1815 with a board of trustees consisting of William Rabun, Nicholas Childers, Thomas Cooper, Sampson Duggar, Archibald R. S. Hunter, James Crowder, Reuben T. Battle, John Veazey and Stephen Weston. 
Relocation*say 1805 He relocated say 1805 at Popcastle, Putnam Co., Georgia; Below Ashbank lies the Popcastle GMD #308. Here lies the mouth of Lick Creek and the boundary between Popcastle and Rockville District at Long Shoals farther south. Captain William Adams, whose property was at Long Shoals, served as the militia captain for Popcastle District. Many of the families of this district had previously been successful planters and leaders in Hancock County. They provided strong influence and leadership in this community, in Putnam County, and at one time, in Georgia.
Among the prominent families in Popcastle were Major William Alexander (whose house and land was later sold to become part of Turnwold Plantation, with William Turner, Sr., and Jr., Lots #277,278, and 279); Joel and David Reese; William Walker, who had lots on Lick and Crooked creeks and the Oconee River, Lots #261, 262, 276, 286, 287, 289, and 300; Joseph, Thomas, and John Cooper; Rowan and Francis Ward; Thomas Lowe; and members of the Spivey and Rosser families.
By 1811 Joseph Cooper was operating a mill on the Oconee and, shortly after, a toll bridge crossing the river. Thomas Lowe also built a mill on the Oconee. Crooked Creek, as well as parts of Lick Creek, provided fine water resources to many of these planters. Crooked Creek Baptist Church, established even before Putnam County, is within the Popcastle District. Its early roll recalls other pioneer families.5

Biography* Thomas Cooper, born in Henry County, Virginia, in 1767, came to Putnam County, Ga., and died in Eatonton, Ga., in 1842. He was the first man to raise cotton for market in Hancock County. The cotton gin had not then been invented, and he invented a roller gin for his own use. Cotton was then worth from fifty to seventy-five cents a pound. Thomas Cooper was one of the original subscribers to the Georgia Railroad. He aided in the founding of Mercer University, was among the first subscribers and supporters of the Columbian Star, afterwards The Christian Index, published first in Washington, D. C., then in Philadelphia, and now in Atlanta.
     He joined the Baptist Church in 1813, was prominent in the church councils, and was a deacon. Among his intimate friends were Jesse Mercer, Adiel Sherwood and Jesse H. Campbell. James C. Clark, of Atlanta., speaking of him to his grandson, the Rev. T. C. Boykin said, "A more devoted, useful, and spiritually minded man than Mr. Cooper I never knew."13

     "Then, in the will of Thomas Wiggins (son of John Wiggins and Bray Baker), dated 3 Oct 1779 at Martin Co., North Carolina, he mentions... 'and I bought from brother William, land of N. side of Marsh Branch bought from Joseph Moore known as Wiggins old field.'
     "The Baker land above would have been in Bertie County until 1741, in Edgecombe County until 1777 and in Nash County after that.
     "The Baker/Marsh Branch/John Wiggins connection could be a coincidence but maybe someone has some other suggestions.
     "Also, the John Baker above had a distinctive way of writing the B in his surname and his supposed son (not proven) wrote his B the same way (the two signatures, 80 years apart, were amazingly similar). People learned how to write at home in those days. If anyone has a signature for Bray Baker Wiggins I would love to see it. Thanks."4

Obituary*15 October 1926 End comes without warning to Homerville's Mayor Tuesday night, burial held today.

Homerville was shocked to learn of the sudden death Tuesday night at his home here, of Dr. A. H. Culpepper. Attacked with heart trouble, suddenly he passed out in a minute or two without getting to say anything to his wife who rushed to his side when she heard him gasping. He had been to Valdosta that day and had returned on the afternoon train. He complained of feeling fatigued, but no idea was entertained that is was to precede his death. He and his wife retired and about ten thirty. She was awakened by his loud gasping for breath. Drs. Huey and Bruce were called but death had already intervened.

The funeral was held this morning at the Baptist church, services being conductd by his former pastor, Rev. R.W. Bugg of Gainesville, Fla. All the children except Keff Culpepper and Robert Culpepper of Hot Springs, Ark. were present. The beloved former pastor paid a warm tribute to the memory of the deceased. Touching tributes were paid to his life and services by several citizens among them Mr. A J. Gibbs, Dr. H. G. Huey, School Supt. J. O. Rodgers, Mr. Geo. M. Dame, Editor Folks Huxford, and Mr. W.H. Hunter. After the services at the church the remains were carried to the town cemetery of which he was a trustee, and there the county convicts had been assembled and were allowed to view the remains for the last time. The convicts had been the object of his professional care for over fifteen years, and many of them wanted to attend the funeral. The school children also attended numbering about 250. The church was crowded many being unable to get in. The board of deacons of the Baptist church, of which Dr. Culpepper has been chairman for the past four years, were honorary pallbearers. The active pallbearers were: Messers A. J. Gibbs, W. V. Musgrove, J. T. Dame, Geo. M. Dame, A. A. Hall, A. N. Carswell, J. O. Rodgers, and Dr. H. G. Huey. The Masonic funeral ceremony was conducted at the grave.

Dr. Culpepper had lived in Homerville since 1898 and was one of the town and county's leading men. His stand in civic matters and town and county affairs generally, called him into prominence as a leading citizen. Possessed of a genial, hositable and sympathetic nature he had a winning personality. As a physician he enjoyed the confidence and respect of his fellow-practictioners.

Dr. Culpepper was born in Warren County, April 1, 1852, and received a very thorough education in the old Warrenton Academy. He studied medicine and after receiving his degree from the Atlantic Medical College in 1892 he began the practice of medicine in Atlanta and practiced there until he came to Homerville.

He made a couple of unsuccessful races fot the legislature before being elected in 1912. Serving through the session of 1913-14 he was defeated in 1914 by Judge R.G. Dickerson. In 1916 he was again elected defeating the late David J. Smith. In 1918 and 1920 and 1924 he was again an unsuccessful candidate. The doctor familiarly knew many of the leading men of Georgia and enjoyed a wide acquaintance among them. In 1904 he was elected Mayor of Homerville but failing to get through certain sanitary measures he advocated then, he resigned and did not seek the office again. However, in 1923 he was elected mayor and re-elected in 1924. Last January he was again elected.

Dr. Culpepper took a deep interest in the town's affairs and in recent years the two things that seemed to interest him most was the town affairs and the church affairs. On locating here in 1898 he was appointed local surgeon for the A.C.L. and held that until his death. In 1909 on the organization of the county chain-gang he was appointed county physician and from then until his death he looked after the health of the convicts and during this time only two died. The doctor united with the Homerville Baptist church in 1904 and in 1909 was ordained a deacon. Three years ago the board of deacons which numbered nine, elected him their chairman and as such he has had a big part in the government of the church. For eight or ten years, he was the faithful superintendent of the Sunday school. Since 1922, he has been the assistant superintendent.

In 1874 Dr. Culpepper was married to Miss Jennie Riviere and to them were born four children: Keff S. of Atlanta, Robert of Hot Springs, Ark., Mrs. Jolly and Miss Irma Culpepper of Clarkston. After her death he married in 1886 Miss Fannie Hardage of Warrenton, and to them were born five sons: W.T. and W.W. of Atlanta, W.G. of St. Louis, Mo., J.E. of Perry, Florida and Otis L. of New Smynia, Fla. The second wife died in 1917 and on March 17, 1918 he was married to Miss Lorena Findley, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. S. D. Findley of Homerville. She survives him together with all his children.

Indeed, a good man is gone!14 
Burial*15 October 1926 His body was interred on 15 October 1926 at Homerville Cemetery, Homerville, Clinch Co., Georgia.7
