1820 - A document on file in Edgecombe County dated November 27, 1820, names ANN LEWELLING, the widow of JOHN LEWELLING. (See Martin County for John's Will)
   Another document on file in Edgecombe County indicates that John Lewelling’s property was by the Martin line.
"Account current with Winfield D. Staton, administrator, began 25 november 1820.   an account paid to Ann Lewelling and sundries were furnished for the widow.
   "Inventory taken by W. D. Staton, administrator, 25 December, 1820.
   "Accounts of sale held 25 December 1820 and 8 February 1821, and account of hire of Negroes and rent of lands for the year 1821 and 1822.
   "Allotment made to the widow for her year's support, February Court, 1821.
(From "Llewellyn Traces":   In regard to the records in this article, W. (Winfield) D. Staton, administrator of the estate of John Lewelling (Lualling), Jr. was a son of Arthur and Charlotte (Lewelling) Staton.   Charlotte (Lewelling) Staton was the daughter of the John William Lewelling who died in Martin County, North Carolina, in 1793, whom we believe also to be the father of John Lewellen, Jr. of this document.   Therefore we can assume that W. D. Staton was the nephew of the John Lewelling of this estate.
   "John mooring, appointed guardian of John Lewelling's orphans, was the husband of Gracy (Lewelling) Mooring, another daughter of the John Lewelling who died in 1793.   therefore we can assume that John mooring was the brother-in-law of the john Lewelling of this estate.
   "John Lewelling evidentaly was named John William Lewelling and created records by either name or as John William.   Therefore, the November 1822 petition of the widow of Nancy Lewelling above concerning the 'late William Lewelling' actually is the John Lewelling, Jr. of the other records of this article.
   "The will of the John Lewelling who died in Edgecombe County, North Carolina, in 1793, is in Llewellyn Traces 5:4, page 69.   This man was the famed Martin County, North Carolina, Tory (Llewellyn Traces 6:3, page 53).
   "The son of the John Lewelling the Tory, was another John, whom we assume is the executor of his father's will.   A listing of Llewellings and Lewellings named in various Edgecombe County court records also is in Llewellyn Traces 5:4, on page 68.
   "Concerning the infant (minor) sons of John Lewelling, Jr., William W. Lewelling, and Stephen W. C. Lewelling:   William W. Lewelling 'died in Pitt County, North Carolina, in 1831,' and we know nothing of Stephen W. C. Lewelling
   "Records of a contemporary researcher shows that she believes 'her' Stephen Lewellen was the Steely or Stele Lewellen who created records in Mercer and Jessamine Counties, Kentucky, and who died intestate in Pike County, Missouri, in 1843 (Llewellyn Traces 2:2, page 37).   The 1800 tax list of Mercer County, Kentucky (Llewellyn Traces 8:2, page 25), shows a John, a William and a Stell (sic) Lewelling.   It doesn't seem possible that William and Stell of the 1800 tax list could in 1822 have been John Lewellen's minor sons William and Stephen Lewellen.
   "Mercer County, Kentucky, records show that a John Lewellen married Nancy ? Bottom, widow of John Bottom, in 1804.   It's impossible to determine if she is the Nancy (ann) of these records.
   "Because the names Nancy and Ann often were used interhchangeably, we assume Nancy and Ann of John Lewellen's records were the same person.
   "Although it seems that the relationships described here are logical and fall into place naturally, there really isn't any proof of relationship based upon the records cited here."

1822 - (OR 1828)   petition was filed with the Court of Edgecombe County dated November (the year was difficult to read and is either 1828 or 1822) with NANCY LEWELLING as petitioner, together with STEPHEN and WILLIAM LEWELLING were asking for distribution of negroes from the late WILLIAM LEWELLING.   Stephen and William were “infants of tender years” to whom John Mooring had been appointed guardian.   Apparently Nancy was asking for distribution of one-third of the negroes.   The document was hard to read.   From another document, it appears that the order was made for distribution

1777 (this info came from a website on the internet)
   John RAWLINS, of Martin County, fleeing from thence to Mattimuskeet, being there apprehended on a Report that he had a hand in a Conspiracy carried on against the State of North Carolina, Deposeth and Saith:
That about the time of Laying the Constitution of Government (as well as he can remember) a General Muster was held at Plymouth, the Court House of said Martin County, on or about the 28th day of March last past, when John LEWELLING & John CARTER, Both of that County, going home in Company with the sd RAWLINS (told him, one or both), that the Country was Like to become subject to popery, for which reason LEWELLING sd there ware a Necessity of Indeavoring to seek relief and had thought on Means proper, and hop'd for a Blessing on the Indeavour he, the sd LEWELLING, said there must be an Instrument of Writing Drawn to which people Might agree under oath and Related something of the form and some few Days after ye sd John LEWELLING and his son William came to the house of sd RAWLINS and the sd Jno. LEWELLING further declared the form which contained much writing and also the form of an oath of Compliance - all of which John LEWELLING sd to the said Deponent if he would Take the Trouble to write down he should be well satisfy'd.   And that then his son should Coppy from the same which he also did as he the sd Wm. LEWELLING Told sd Dpo. that he had wrote some for MARTIN, EDGECOMBE, HALIFAX and think he sd for BARTEE and TERIL. He also heard James SHEROD say he had wrote some and likewise John LEWELLING. Now after Many had come into this Society, as it was Term'd, they became known to each other by word and sign; and some time after John LEWELLING told sd Deponent that if they could destroy Whitmel HILL, Colonel WILLIAMS, Thomas HUNTER, Nathan MAYO, Colonel SALTER and one TAYLOR, that then the Country would soon be settled. In Behalf of the King, this being proposed by John LEWELLING, seem'd to be approv'd off by several others, But not yet put in practice as the Dep't knows off. After this John LEWELLING Told the Deponent it would be a good scheeme to Git some Body to Diseffect the negroes and thought David TAYLOR would do it and Give out an oration of their Rising would draw the soldiers out of Halifax, whilst he and Company could seize the Governor and Magazene, but hearing the Governor was not to Come at the appointed time it was Dropt for that time, but that scheeme became not public to many, the Dept. believes, for when he objected against it John LEWELLING said if he Divulg'd anything, Death was the portion to him or any one else. Another scheeme was to go to General HOWE. John LEWELLING with the Deponent agreed if he would go with him to do for him what ever he Could to advance him as also the Deponent expected to see his father and friends, but going as far as Scotland Neck, returned Back and in a few days something of the matter Became Discovered, [When John LEWELLING persuaded the Deponent to flee and not to be taken by any means; accordingly he fled from home the 5th day of July. It is certain none of these vile proceedings were Incerted in their writings; but very Repugnant to them, some of the Express words in their writings were those to Govern their Lives and actions By the Just Laws of Morality and by the Scriptures of old and New Testament, to which they were sworn, which caused Many to be Cald in the proceedings of Cruelty, I believe altho first proposed by John LEWELLING.
Sworn before me this 10th August, 1777.

1777 - From James RAWLINS to the Worshipful Justices of New Bern:
Some days past, George WAINWRIGHT, from Martin County, a Great Friend to John LEWELLING, was here. I expect to endeavour to hear some News by his short stay of what I had Related, and I knowing the Great Influence Capt. LEWELLING has over that Neighborhood have Great Reason to fear he will make any attempts to invalidate my Testimony, and though no other person but myself could have discovered the Beginning of the Scheeme, unless himself. Yet I will acquaint you of some Evidence as yet I believe unknown that may be Material. Richard TAYLOR, Sr., a near neighbor to Capt. LEWELLING, told me in private that LEWELLING had Told him if he could git but ten Men to Joyn him he would fall to work and kill them every one, speaking of Whitmel HILL and others that had threaten'd him as a Tory. This Richard TAYLOR told me Long since the Scheeme was begun; also James MAYO, Captain, had threatened Mr. LEWELLING. To take him up for a Tory for which Reason Mr. LEWELLING Desired Peter TYLER and myself to waylay sd MAYO on the Road to kill him, but when I told him I could not he persuaded, Peter TYLER and lent him his Gun and told him Tarry till he sent him victuals, which TYLER did, but saw MAYO not. This may be prov'd by TYLER and Myself. Again a few days before I made My Escape, Mr. LEWELLING said to me it would be no Damage if he were Taken to swear that a Travling Man brought the writings to My house and that I and that Travelling man Carried the same to his house, by which Means the Beginning would not be Discovered, so that I being to My hurt, as all the friends or power I have is to declare the Truth and Humbly Crave pardon for having had any hand in sd plot or Scheme, testifying whatever shall Come to my Memory I will make known about this matter.

1777 - Nathan HATTAWAY being sworn on the holy Avangelists of Almighty God, deposeth & sayth as follows (to-wit), that John CARTER swore him to keep John LUALLEN's name a Secret and that John CARTER give him a stick with three notches, which stick he was to carry to the sd John LUALLEN, and the meaning of that stick was to let LUALLEN know that he was Entered into their Society to support the Old & New Testament and that John CARTER told him that the French was coming in & that the Gentry was joining them to being in the popish Religion, this Deponent sayth that when he Delivered the stick to John LUALLEN he asked him what he gave him that for, this Depon't answered for a sign. The sd. LUALLEN asked him if he had got that sign - this Depo't answered, I have. He said then, give it me. This Dep't answered B, he sd E, the Dep't T, he said R, the Dep't sd U, he sd E, this Dep't then said be true, he answer'd I hope you will. Then the sd LUALLEN Read to this Dep't what he called a Constitution, & after that this Dep't told him he could not join in it & then left him - this Dep't sayeth that John CARTER told him James SHARRARD was in the Scheme and that James SHARRARD handed him a Book and told him he might swear if he would or not, this Dep't then swore that he was to join with him if the people was Drafted, & they should find themselves about to oppose those that Drafted them, and further this Dep't sayth not.
Sworn before me the 4th July, 1777.
N.B. - This Deponent further sayth that he heard CARTER say that he got no Powder & shot at Halifax.

John LEWELLEN was one of the first to organize the Tories in Martin, Bertie and Washington Counties, and had been tried for treason, convicted and sentenced to death for the part he took in the Conspiracy against the State. His pardon was granted, and he was not executed.

1779 -   Tax List of Martin County shows:
WILLIAM LEWELLING 438 acres and JOHN LEWELLING 12,026 acres

1790 - Census shows   John Lewillin
1790 - Census, Halifax District:   Robert (name spelt Sherrord) is living next to John (Sherrord) (his brother?). Robert is living with 4 males under 16 (John, Salathiel, Robert, Wilson), five females (Lydia, Abbay, Sabra, Sally, & Polly) and nine slaves. Several house away are Lewis and Randall Sherrord, his cousins   (NOTE:   This information came from a site on the internet.   They believed that Lydia, the wife of Robert Sherrod was a Llewellyn..see Norfolk, Virginia, and the Will of William Lewelling)
The posting goes on to read: The Abstracts of Will Books 1 and 2, 1774-1868, for Martin Co., NC, included the wills of both Robert Sherrod and his wife Lydia Llewellyn Sherrod. BOTH of them list Abba Shivers (Robert's will dated December 25, 1800) and Abbey Shivers (Lydia's will dated November 24, 1820. Also included are:
         Robert's will: Sons John, Salathiel, Robert and Wilson. Daughters Abba Shivers, Salra Hyman, Salley Weathersbee, and Polly Best.
         Lydia's will: Sons John, Salathiel and Wilson (Note: Robert had died ca 1810/1811). Daughters, Sabray Hyman, Salley Manning and Polly Best. Also mentions Abbey Shivers and children of John Sherrod and children of Robert Sherrod

 Salathiel SHERROD, STATONs and Gibson Co
Posted by: Lucy Barron Date: July 01, 1999 at 09:14:25
 of 754  
I       am interested in Salathiel SHERROD for two reasons. (1) He's the grandfather of Turner James SHERROD, who married Lucinda Elizabeth HAYWOOD, a daughter of Tillman HAYWOOD in DeSoto Co., MS. Turner and Lucinda (HAYWOOD) SHERROD removed to Phillips Co., AR. By 1880, Lucinda appears to have remarried a PALMER (per father's will) and her children are living with her siblings in White Co., AR. Seek descendants of these SHERROD children and whereabouts of Lucinda in 1880. (2) Salathiel appears to have strong ties to Martin Co., NC STATONs due to his daughter Betsy marrying a Harvey STATON and due to his LLEWELLYN ancestry, a family that also intermarried with the STATONs. This leads me to believe that Salathiel travelled to TN with other Martin Co., NC families (possibly including STATON and LEGGETT). When did he come to TN?? Who were the other families that came?? I also am wondering if the Thomas STATON found in 1830 census of Gibson Co., TN is none other than Thomas STATON, son of Jesse and Sarah (JACKSON) STATON of Martin Co., NC up through 1810. Disappears after about 1816. Were the STATONs found on the 1830 census of Gibson Co., TN all children of this Thomas

1787 - Meshach Lewellin married Jane Brookshire Jan. 29.   NOTE:   It is unknown if this information is correct because Meshach is given as having married a Margaret Williams on this date also. There is a Jane (Brookshire) Luallen mentioned in her father's 1835 Will, but if she married Meshach Lewelling, son of William Lewelling who died 1799, then that Meshach wasn't of age in 1799 so this wouldn't be the same individual.   And, too, no Meshach is mentioned until 1801 other than in William's Will.

1784 - (from GenForum posting) Joseph Dawson Sr. whose will was probated in April Court 1784, Wayne Co. NC named sons William, Isaac, Joel, Thomas and Jesse and eight daughters. I do know that his youngest and only child by second wife Patience Pike Scriven Dawson was Jesse and he removed to Ohio by 1807. Patience and Jesse were Quakers and Jesse married Elizabeth Doudna in 1807 at Stillwater MM in Belmont Co. Ohio. The other sons of Joseph Sr. appear on the 1790 Census of Wayne or Dobbs Co. William appears on the 1800 Wayne Co. NC census, Thomas in Lenoir Co. NC Joel in Robeson Co. NC and Isaac in Duplin Co. In short I do not believe any of these men went to Tennessee although some of their sons could have. I have not traced all the lines. I descend from William and have that line as well. William had sons
John, Joseph, William, Isaac, Matthew, and Wilson. Most of these however did move away but I do not know where. I descend from this last Joseph who removed to Sampson Co. Some of his children removed to Arkansas

1788 - Moses Johnston made his will in Wayne County August 26, 1788; it was probated in October Court, 1788. Terms: to son JAMES, five shillings sterling money (including a debt of 45 barrels of corn); son WILLIAM, a small pot and pothooks, 3 pewter plates; son MOSES, five shillings sterling money; son ROBERT, the same; son AARON, 100 acres adjoining Richard Pearce, a bay mare, saddle and bridle; son AMOS, 100 acres adjoining the fork of the Swamp and Great Branch and also adjoining JAMES Johnston, and a young horse, cow, calf, and a gun; daughter REBECCA FAULK, a heirfer and an old side saddle; daughter ALSE Johnston, 100 acres on Great Branch, a bed stead, and furniture; daughter SARAH Johnston, a bed stead, and furniture; daughter EDITH Johnston, a bed and furniture; daughter RACHEL Johnston, all sheep.

Francis Lewallen is not found on the 1810 NC census, but she is still in Wake Co. as evidenced by "Abstract of Record of Wills, Inventories, Settlements of Estates" 1802-1812 Wake County, North Carolina" Vol II by Frances Holloway Wynne;   Francis Lewellin made a purchase at the Estate sale of Aaron Johnston, dec'd on on 13 May 1810.   She attended another Estate sale on 13 Sept 1811 of Edmund Ford and made a purchase.

The 1820 census for Wake Co., NC was destroyed but according to the tax list both Francis Lewelling and a Wm Lewelling were still in Wake   Co.   Unfortunately, there is no way for us to be able to determine an age other than the fact they would both be over 21 for them to be on a tax list.

Moses Lewallen married Matilda Oliver 27 October 1821 in Wake   Co., NC.  

Moses Lewelling is found on the 1830 Wake Co., NC Census age 30-40; he has 1 male <5, 1 male 5-10; 1 female <5, 1 female 5-10 and 1 female 20-30.

There is also a William Lewelling on this 1830 census, he is age 20-30.   There is an older female in his household age 80-90.   According to the 1830 Tax List, this would be Francis.   William Lewellin entered   o acres for himself but 238 acres for Francis.   Moses Lewellin entered 0 acres for himself.

Francis very well may be a man rather than a woman.

Sue Cooper - Jul 19, 2010
