53 "After the deaths of Thomas and Elizabeth Covington, their daughter Virginia Chandler and her husband William Graves Chandler inherited the house and plantation. According to Virginia Chandler, the interior woodwork was all made inside the house, and the Covington land extended all the way to Grier's Church. The Chandler's bachelor son, Vance Chandler, lived at the house until his death about 1938. The house was sold to Mr. and Mrs. Jeter Fuqua. Mr Fuqua found a brick with the initials TC carved into the chimney.

Caution To Parents

To the Court of Charlotte County, sitting in Chancery, your Orator, Martin Elliott, administrator of the goods and chattels of John Elliott, deceased, and William Elliott and James Elliott humbly show that in or about the year 1783, a certain John Lea departed this life, having first made and duly published his last will and testament which is recorded in the Court and is hereby prayed to be held and taken as part of this Bill, that among other clauses in the said testament there is the following, to wit:

"Item. My will and desire is that my three Negroes and my two horses and my feather bed, likewise eight thousand weight of tobacco in the hands of my brother Joseph Lea and saddle should be sold to the highest bidder and the money arising therefrom to be equally divided among my three brothers and six sisters, to wit, William Lea, Joseph Lea, and Andrew Lea, Elizabeth Clark, Mary Walden, Ann Bennett, Sarah Penn, Milly Elliott, and Lucy Green all which I give to them and the heirs of their body forever. But if my sister Lucy Green should die without heirs of her body, my desire is that her part should be equally divided among the eight aforementioned brothers and sisters."

And the said testator appointed his brothers William and Joseph Lea executors of this last will and testament, of whom the said Joseph Lea qualified according to law, and undertook the burthen of the said executorship; and your orator states that John Elliott, now deceased, (who having died intestate your Orator, Martin Elliott, has Legally qualified as his administrator) and your Orators William Elliott and James Elliott were children of Milly Elliott, deceased, and were entitled to the said Milly Elliott's share of the said estate, that on a partial settlement of the claim of the said John Elliott on the 17th of July 1795 he was entitled to 3574# of tob. that the said John Elliott received 1847# of tob. in part of the same and the balance amounting to 1727# of tob. is now justly due to the estate of the said John Elliot, that your Orators William and James Elliott are also entitled to their shares of the estate of the said John Lea, deceased which have never been settled and paid to them and fore as much as your Orators are without remedy at common law, To the end therefore that the said Joseph Lea, executor of John Lea, deceased, may be held as defendant to this Bill to answer the same on oath and may be compelled to render a true Account of his transactions in his Executorship and to pay to your Orators whatever sums of Tobacco and money shall appear to be justly due to your Orators the commonwealth Writ of Subpoena commanding the defendant &c and to grant your Orators such relief as the rules of Equity may require.

[It is interesting that the children of brother Ambrose Lee (decd) are not named and shows that as of 1800, sister Milly is now Milly Elliott with two children James Elliott and William Elliot. It's all one sentence so it's difficult to read and I can't tell if Martin Elliott is also a son?. A Capt Thomas Dudley died about 1778-1779 as two men Robert B Dudley and Thomas Dudley are advertising for claimants in august 26, 1779 in the issue of Virginia Gazette (Williamsburg, Virginia) Published September 4, 1779 Since the death date of John Lee is 1783, it is probable that Milly's sons are not of age until 1800. She would have married John Elliott abt 1779-1780.]

70 "But few men have played so large and important a role in public affairs in North Carolina as the subject of this sketch [Romulus Mitchell Saunders] did for a period of fifty years. His grandfather was James Saunders of Orange County, who had four sons, among them Colonel James Saunders, a patriot in Revolutionary Times, who represented Orange County in the Provincial Congress of April, 1776, that placed the State in a position to defend the liberties of the people, and declared for independence, and William. On the formation of the new Continental regiments in 1777, William Saunders, a son of James Saunders, although but a youth, became ensign in the 6th regiment, and in February, 1779, received his promotion to lieutenant, and he continued in service with General Greene until the end of the war in 1783. Shortly after peace was won, this young Continental officer returned home and was married to Hannah Mitchell, by whom he had two sons, Franklin and Romulus Mitchell, the latter being the subject of this sketch. . . .

Some show a William Saunders (born 1700) and wife Agnes Adams as the parents of the Saunders children listed here. Following is the support claimed for this position. They also reference the son named William Saunders, Jr., and the Williams Family Ancestral Outline (Caswell County Historical Association Newsletter, December 2008, page 5).

Saunders, Romulus Mitchell, statesman, was born in Caswell (then Orange) county, N.C., March 3, 1791; son of William Saunders (an officer in the 6th regiment, N.C. troops during the Revolutionary war, 1777-83, and an original member of the Society of the Cincinnati) and Hannah (Mitchell) Saunders, his wife; grandson of William [p.239] and ?? (Adams) Saunders of Dan River, N.C., and a descendant of the Saunders family of Lancaster county, Virginia, who settled on the great Wiscomico river in 1660. His father removed to Somerset county, Tenn., in 1791, on the death of his wife, and died there in 1803. Romulus was adopted by his uncle, Col. James Saunders, a member of the Halifax congresses. He attended the University of North Carolina, 1809-11; read law with Judge Hugh Lawson White of Tennessee; and was married Dec. 22, 1812, to Rebecca Paine Carter of Caswell county, N.C. He practised law at Milton on the Dan river, N.C., 1812-15; and was a member of the state house of commons, 1815-20, being speaker of the house, 1819. His wife died, Oct. 9, 1821, and he was married secondly, May 26, 1823, to Anna Hays Johnson, daughter of Justice William Johnson (q.v.). He was a Democratic representative in the 17th, 18th and 19th congresses, 1821-27; attorney-general of North Carolina in 1828-31, and a commissioner with George W. Campbell and John K. Kane, to distribute 25,000,000 francs secured by the treaty with France, 1831.

He was judge of the superior court of North Carolina, 1835-40; was defeated for governor of the state by John M. Morehead in 1840; was a representative in the 27th and 28th congresses, 1841-45; U.S. minister to Spain, 1846-49, and he conducted the confidential negotiations made by the government for the purchase of Cuba for $100,000,000, which were frustrated by Reynolds, U.S. secretary of legation, who accepted a bribe for publishing the negotiations and was dismissed by the U.S. government. Mr. Saunders was recalled at his own request in 1849; was again a member of the house of commons, 1850-52; was judge of the superior court, 1852-65, and was a member of the board of commissioners to revise the laws of the state. He was a trustee of the University of North Carolina, 1819-64. He died in Raleigh, N.C., April 21, 1867.

_______________

Marshall Lee Scruggs, 90, passed away peacefully in his sleep at Christiana Hospital, Delaware, on January 30, 2017. Marshall was born in 1926 in southern Virginia, Whittles, Pittsylvania County, to tobacco farmer, Matthew Brown Scruggs and Martha Jane Clark Scruggs. In 1936, for a new start in life during the Great Depression, he moved with his family to a primitive log cabin on the banks of Moon Creek between Providence and Purley, Caswell County, North Carolina. Later in 1944, his father and Uncle Jeter Scruggs were able to purchase a farm in Providence and each owned a part on each side of the road.

Marshall graduated high school in the spring of 1944 and attended US Naval Training Center (Navy "Boot Camp") in Bainbridge, MD in November 1944. He was selected to train in cryptology at the Naval Security Station (NSS) in Washington DC where he became a Communications Technician Specialist "Q-A." He was assigned to Field Radio Unit Pacific (FRUPAC). Marshall reported for duty at Station HYPO in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii in July of 1945 where he served running the switchboard for the unit transmitting messages as they were decoded. He was promoted to Yeoman 3rd class in 1945 and honorably discharged from the USN in May 1946 at War's end. In August 1946, Marshall enrolled at East Carolina Teacher's College (now East Carolina University) under the G.I. Bill. He joined the US Naval Reserves and attended summer school to receive an accelerated business degree in May of 1949. US Navy Intelligence recalled him to duty in Washington DC in 1950 at the start of the Korean War.

Soon after, he was assigned by NSS to the Navy Security Radio Group (NAVSECGRU) in Dupont, South Carolina. He continued to serve at "Radio Dupont" at the rank of Yeoman 3rd class until 1951 before applying for Officer's Candidate School (OCS). He was a member of Company C, the class of 1951, and commissioned the rank of Ensign. After an initial assignment as a courier at the Pentagon, he was once again assigned to the Naval Security Service in Washington DC as a cryptologist. Later, after the Korean War, Marshall continued service in the US Naval Reserves where he achieved the rank of Lieutenant while working for the NSA. He retired from the Navy in 1968 after completing 21 years of service at the age of 42.

After his 1953 release from the Navy, Marshall married and with Mary Jane moved from Washington, DC to New Jersey, ultimately settling in Pennsville, where he worked as a Cost Accountant (and as an Emcee for retirement parties) at DuPont Chambers Works for 28 years at Petroleum Lab, and Jackson Lab retiring in 1982. He also worked part-time as a night auditor at the Holiday Inn in Carneys Point.

Marshall is survived by his former wife, Mary Jane Scruggs; children, Michael (Christine) Scruggs of Newark, DE; Laura Scruggs (Bill Johnson) of Bridgeton, NJ; Matthew (Audrey) Scruggs of Los Angeles, CA; and Christine Scruggs Hooks of Pennsville, NJ. He is also survived by grandchildren, Michael Lee, Jr. (Sheree) Scruggs; Jason (Stephanie) Scruggs; Steven Scruggs; David Scruggs; Christen Hooks; Lauren Hooks; Timothy Klumpp; and Meaghan Hurr; great grandchildren Abby; Jagger; Ny’Yana; Madeline; Evan; Joseph; and Thomas, as well as many nieces and nephews.

Marshall was predeceased by his parents; and brothers and sisters, Linwood Scruggs; Mathew Ray Scruggs; Joseph Neal Scruggs; Casper Hamlet Scruggs; Esther Scruggs Day; and Ruby Scruggs Goforth.

Funeral services will be held 11 AM Friday in the Sharptown Methodist Church Chapel, 24 Church Street, Pilesgrove, NJ where there will be a viewing from 9:30 to 11:00 AM. Interment will follow in Overlook Cemetery in Bridgeton, NJ.

82 "CURDER [Corder], William. Petition of Obed Florence of Caswell County [North Carolina] requesting duplicate warrants be issued for the entry claims of WILLIAM CORDER for 2 tracts, 300 and 150 [acres] respectively, in 1779. Saidd Corder was a Revolutionary War soldier who was killed "at the battle of Utaw" in 1781. He was survived by "a widow and five children, to wit, Hannah, Mary, Sarah, Vinniford and Elizabeth." Afterwards, the petitioner married the widow and became administrator to the said William Corder [decd] and guardian [to] the orphans. Diligent search has been made in the Secretary's office for the grants of both the entries, and they cannot be found. 1800." Source: North Carolina Genealogical Society Journal, vol. 1, no. 3, July, 1975, at p. 151.

The deeds specifiy that they are for duplicate warrants. And they specify that Obed paid the "50 shillings for every hundred" for both tracts. The mention of Corder's service may be coincidental and simply to explain the relationship between Obediah Florance and Mrs. Corder. Corder was not killed at the battle but died within the year (1782, not 1781) from wounds received at the Battle of Eutaw Springs.

86 "Dr." Ernest Jones lived in the house directly across from High Street Baptist Church (Milton, Caswell County, North Carolina). He was probably bi-racial, but claimed to be Indian. He had a hospital somewhat in back of the Donoho farm on Highway 62 South, and treated patients with his own concoctions. Ernest Jones had a son (Eustace Jones) who followed in the father's footsteps. The son ordered oil of peppermint in gallon or larger jugs from Owens-Minor Drug Co., which jugs were delivered through Brandon's Store in Milton. Ernest Jones's house still stands in Milton, but is in very dilapidated condition (just across the street from the home of Vanessa Richmond-Graves). "Dr." Ernest Jones used Epsom salts with a heavy hand. The son, Eustace Jones apparently was barred from using the United States Postal Service as a result of fraud. "Dr." Ernest Jones corresponded widely, particularly in the North.

To the Court of Charlotte County, sitting in Chancery, your Orator, Martin Elliott, administrator of the goods and chattels of John Elliott, deceased, and William Elliott and James Elliott humbly show that in or about the year 1783, a certain John Lea departed this life, having first made and duly published his last will and testament which is recorded in the Court and is hereby prayed to be held and taken as part of this Bill, that among other clauses in the said testament there is the following, to wit:

"Item. My will and desire is that my three Negroes and my two horses and my feather bed, likewise eight thousand weight of tobacco in the hands of my brother Joseph Lea and saddle should be sold to the highest bidder and the money arising therefrom to be equally divided among my three brothers and six sisters, to wit, William Lea, Joseph Lea, and Andrew Lea, Elizabeth Clark, Mary Walden, Ann Bennett, Sarah Penn, Milly Elliott, and Lucy Green all which I give to them and the heirs of their body forever. But if my sister Lucy Green should die without heirs of her body, my desire is that her part should be equally divided among the eight aforementioned brothers and sisters."

And the said testator appointed his brothers William and Joseph Lea executors of this last will and testament, of whom the said Joseph Lea qualified according to law, and undertook the burthen of the said executorship; and your orator states that John Elliott, now deceased, (who having died intestate your Orator, Martin Elliott, has Legally qualified as his administrator) and your Orators William Elliott and James Elliott were children of Milly Elliott, deceased, and were entitled to the said Milly Elliott's share of the said estate, that on a partial settlement of the claim of the said John Elliott on the 17th of July 1795 he was entitled to 3574# of tob. that the said John Elliott received 1847# of tob. in part of the same and the balance amounting to 1727# of tob. is now justly due to the estate of the said John Elliot, that your Orators William and James Elliott are also entitled to their shares of the estate of the said John Lea, deceased which have never been settled and paid to them and fore as much as your Orators are without remedy at common law, To the end therefore that the said Joseph Lea, executor of John Lea, deceased, may be held as defendant to this Bill to answer the same on oath and may be compelled to render a true Account of his transactions in his Executorship and to pay to your Orators whatever sums of Tobacco and money shall appear to be justly due to your Orators the commonwealth Writ of Subpoena commanding the defendant &c and to grant your Orators such relief as the rules of Equity may require.

[It is interesting that the children of brother Ambrose Lee (decd) are not named and shows that as of 1800, sister Milly is now Milly Elliott with two children James Elliott and William Elliot. It's all one sentence so it's difficult to read and I can't tell if Martin Elliott is also a son?. A Capt Thomas Dudley died about 1778-1779 as two men Robert B Dudley and Thomas Dudley are advertising for claimants in august 26, 1779 in the issue of Virginia Gazette (Williamsburg, Virginia) Published September 4, 1779 Since the death date of John Lee is 1783, it is probable that Milly's sons are not of age until 1800. She would have married John Elliott abt 1779-1780.]
