      Joseph Williams has been mis-associated with a Joseph Williams who was a Quaker in a different era in Wrightsboro, GA. Unsourced trees indicate Joseph's parents were Edward Williams (1648 - 1739) who was born and died in Pasquotank, NC and his reported wife Elizabeth Sawyer (1673 - 1746); these dates do no appear to be appropriate but Elizabeth could be a second wife of Edward.

Witnesses were Thomas Lanier, James Cook and Edward Adams. (Brunswick Co, VA Deed Book 1740-1744, p. 391)

Samuel Huckabee of Brunswick Co, VA on 10 Nov 1744 bought 200 acres from William Linsey in Halifax Co, NC. (Halifax Co, NC Register of Deeds 1741 -1746) The 23 Aug 1745 will of Thomas Lanier was witnessed by John Denton, Micajah Perry and Samuel (X his mark) Huckaby. (Brunswick Co, VA Will Book 2, p. 90) That year Samuel sold land in Brunswick Co, VA.

Samuel Huckabee of Edgecombe Co, NC on 25 Apr 1754 was granted 200 acres of land in Edgecombe Co, NC by the Honorable John Earl Granvill Viscount. (Halifax Co, NC Register of Deeds 1756 - 1758)

Witnesses were James Denman and William Huckabay. A marginal notation on 1 Jan 1769 showed delivery to Wm. Huckaby. (Bute Co, NC Deed Book 1, p. 226) Samuel served on the Grand Jury for the Feb 1768 Court for Bute Co, NC. (Bute Co, NC Minutes of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Session 1767-1779) Samuel Huckaby was one of the witnesses to a 8 Nov 1768 deed from William Kimbrough to Thomas Person.

(Bute Co, NC Minutes of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Session 1767 -1779, p. 51) In 1771 Samuel signed two petitions concerning new taxes imposed by the Assembly.

Samuel's will bequeathed slaves, furniture and livestock to his sons William and Samuel and daughters Hannor Lott, Elizabeth Pearce, Mary Hucabay and Suke Huckabay. Given all of Samuel's land purchases it is interesting that neither his will or estate inventory mentions land. The 13 Jul 1775 inventory of Samuel Huckaby's estate by Cutbird Hudson and Samuel Jeter included 13 negroes, livestock, household furniture and farming tools. The Nov 1777 Granville Co, NC court appointed commissioners to divide the negroes of the estate with widow receiving one-third. Signed John Tatom, Thomas Ricks, James Currin and Samuel Snead.

Samuel's widow Elizabeth married their neighbor George Brister/Bristow (1723-1783), apparently had daughters Mary and Averilla, and was still living when George wrote his will.

     Charles B. Huckaby was born a 1729. He was the son of James Huckaby I and Mary Fellows. Charles B. Huckaby died b 15 Aug 1777 at Bute County, North Carolina.
      Thomas Huckabee is a leading researcher in distinguishing between two contemporary men named Charles Huckaby. Most researchers believe James and Mary Huckaby had a son named Charles. These researchers also believe the Charles Huckaby on the 1790 Cheraw District, Chesterfield Co, SC census was the son of James and Mary Huckaby -- although records indicate that Charles was actually the son of Richard Huckaby, whose father was Thomas Huckaby of Brunswick Co, VA who died in 1736. Thus the folllowing records are more likely to be for Charles, the son of Richard, because Brunswick Co, VA and Northampton Co, VA, although close to each other are far from where Bute Co, NC is and these Brunswick and Northampton records were made while Charles, the son of James, was noted living in Granville/Bute Co. Charles Huckaby of Northampton Co, NC bought 150 acres on Pigeon Road Creek from Arthur Alkins on 13 Nov 1762 for 30 pounds. Charles Huckaby and Learner Huckaby witnessed a deed transaction in Northhampton Co, NC in Feb 1764. In Aug 1764 Charles sold land to Martin Forrest in Northhampton Co, NC. (Deeds of Northhampton Co, NC 1759-1774) Charles Huckaby witnessed the 20 Jun 1769 will of Samuel White. (Brunswick Co, VA Will Book 4, part 1)

Charles Huckaby was in Bute Co, NC in 1777 with James, John and Thomas Huckaby, sons of James and Mary Huckaby. Thus the following records from Granville Co, NC and Bute Co, NC are most likely the records for Charles, the son of James and Mary, and cover the last years of Charles' life. Charles Huckaby vs Benjamin Thompson was in Granville Co Court on 12 Aug 1760. ( Zae Hargett Gwynn, Court Minutes of Granville Co, NC 1746-1820) Charles Huckabee and Richard Huckabee were on the 1762 Cross Road District, Granville Co, NC List of Taxables. (North Carolina Genealogical Society Journal, Vol X l l, No 3, Aug 1986) On 15 Mar 1768 John Shell of Cumberland Co, VA sold William Shell of Brunswick Co, VA for 122 pounds 10 shillings Virginia money 220 acres in Bute Co, NC adjacent to the land of Charles Huckaby. Bute Co, NC was formed from Granville Co, NC in 1764. (Bute Co, NC Deed Book 2, p. 10) On 15 Aug 1777 the Bute Co, NC court ordered that James Huckaby, 7-year-old orphan of Charles Huckaby, be bound to George Webb to learn the planter's business and to be schooled until he attained lawful age.

Father:James Huckaby I (a 1697 - a 1762)
Mother:Mary Fellows (a 1701 - )
     Thomas Huckaby was born a 1732. He was the son of James Huckaby I and Mary Fellows. Thomas Huckaby died a 1794 at Montgomery Co, North Carolina.
      Thomas Huckabee researched and studied the legal records of Thomas Huckaby. Thomas Huckaby was in Bute Co, NC with his presumed father James and James' other sons James junior, Samuel and John where the family members engaged in land transactions among each other. Some researchers believe the Thomas Huckaby in the 1790 Cheraw District, Marlboro Co, SC census at the same time as Charles, the son of Richard Huckaby, was the son of James and Mary Huckaby, although there is no proof of the latter relationship.

Records indicated Thomas, son of James and Mary Huckaby, remained in Granville, Bute and Franklin counties in North Carolina until about 1784 when Thomas Huckaby and William McGregor moved to Montgomery Co, NC.

The next was a record very much out of character with the future successful life of Thomas. On 4 May 1774 a Thomas Huccaby, infirm, was recommended for exemption from taxes; there was no record of approval. Although this could be Thomas, there is a possiblility the author incorrectly transcribed the name and this was Thomas' father James. (Thomas McAdory Owen, History and Genealogies of Old Granville County, North Carolina 1746-1800, Southern Historical Press, Greenville, SC, 1993) Bute County was created from Granville Co, NC.

On 12 Dec 1778 William Rowland sold Thomas Huckaby, both of Bute Co, NC for 250 pounds current money 156 acres in Bute County on the south side Giles Creek up Rocky Branch from where it crosses. The land was adjacent to the creek and to the land of Brantley. (Bute Co, NC Deed Book 7, p. 179) This researcher's fifth great grandfather Frederick Rowland married in Granville Co, NC in 1771, and this William Roland may be Frederick's brother William.

Margaret ? Beam1

F, ID# 3240, (12 Jan 1794 - 21 Mar 1886)
Father:Jacob Beam ? (of Newberry) (a 1770 - )
     Margaret ? Beam was born on 12 Jan 1794 at Fairfield Co, South Carolina. She was the daughter of Jacob Beam ? (of Newberry). Margaret ? Beam married Jonas Eli Rudisill ? on 4 Feb 1817 at Lincoln Co, North Carolina. Margaret ? Beam died on 21 Mar 1886 at Amity, Clark Co, Arkansas, at age 92.
      Margaret Beam may be the sister of Ezekiel Beam based on a 18.4cM atDNA match on one segment of chromosme 5 on My Heritage between Charles Proctor and Virginia Winslett, who would be fifth cousins and the 4th great grand children of Ezekiel and Margaret's unknown parents. Furthermore, this segment match overlays a match on the same chromosome with a known Weathers-Beam descendant. No record data supports this match because of the geographical displacement between the two families between two states.

The geographical issue against this hypothesis is the family of Ezekiel Beam lived in the northeastern South Carolina counties of Craven, Newberry, Fairfield and Chester for three generations, whereas the marriage of Margaret Beam to Jonas Radisil occurred in the border county of Lincoln Co, NC, and Margaret and Jonas remained living there. This researcher is skeptical of a Fairfield Co girl marrying in North Carolina, although by the time of this marriage she would have been 25 which would be a relatively late marriage. This also presumes Margaret was not the daughter of John Derrick Beam and Mary Hoyle as is shown on some trees because those are not Ezekiel's parents.

Circumstantial evidence of a relationship is that Margaret Beam Rudisill lived by a man named Peter Beam who is old enough to be her brother, and my Ezekiel named two of his early children Peter and Margaret. However, this evidence also supports the opposite hypothesis which is Margaret was from a Beam family residing in Lincoln Co, NC as opposed to SC. Also against this Margaret being in my family is the 1825 marriage in NC of another Jonas Rudisill to Anna Beam, indicating the Beam family was readily available in NC. A Capt Joshua Beam age 20 -29 with a female age 60 - 69 residing in Lincoln Co, NC may be Margaret's brother as well. Joshua was noted online as the son of Joshua Beam and Matilda Mooney who married in the county in 1830.

Based on the Lincoln Co marriage register many Beam families lived in the county and in 1822 for Beam marriages Rudisill family members provided surety.
