Hardy Wheless1,2

M, ID# 3666, (1756 - a 27 Mar 1823)
Father:Joseph Wheeless II (14 Aug 1733 - c Jan 1787)
Mother:Mary "Molley" (Unknown) (a 1729 - )
Charts:Joel Harper Winslett lineage
     Hardy Wheless was born in 1756 at Halifax Co, North Carolina. He was the son of Joseph Wheeless II and Mary "Molley" (Unknown). Hardy Wheless married Lydia Drake a 1775 at Halifax Co, North Carolina. Hardy Wheless died a 27 Mar 1823. He was buried in 1823 at Old Wheelus Cemetery, Talbot Co, Georgia. His estate was probated on 7 Jul 1823 at Jones Co, Georgia.
      Hardy Wheless, noted as Wheeles in the records, provided patriotic service to North Carolina during the Revolutionary War for which he was paid and his wife received a widow's pension. What service he provided is not known.

In 1783 Hardy Whelus was noted living in District 10 on the Halifax Co, NC tax list: Sion Whelus; Ambrose Daniell £80, near Edwards, Parker, Shuffield [sic] Morris, Ives, Whelus; Peter Daniell £106, near Read, Bradley, Branch, Cox, Joseph Whelus, Morris, Butt; Israel West £805, before are Drake, Bruce, Hardy Whelus.

Hardy Wheless was included in the 1786 Halifax Co, NC Tax List. He was enumerated on the District 10, Halifax Co, NC census with 1 male age 21-60, 2 males under age 21 or over 60, and 3 females. On the same 1786 census was Joseph Whelas, Trustram Drake and Peter Bird; Hardy's wife's maiden name is thought to be Drake and Hardy's daughter married a Bird.

Exactly when the 1786 Halifax Co census was taken is important to help establish among Hardy's family members. The index was transcribed as taken in 1786; of the 16 census districts in the county only Hardy's District 10 was not enumerated during late Dec through Feb 1786 and was transcribed as taken on 22 May 178_ [possibly 1787] by resident Samuel Crowell. If Hardy's wife was pregnant when the family was enumerated in what was likely May 1787 with four children, they could potentially have had eight children by the time of the 1790 census if one birth was twins. Given the possibility of any infant deaths, there may be other relatives among the eight youth living in the household by 1790.

A Hardy Wheeless was reportedly on the 1786-87 Warrenton, Warren Co, GA tax list and on the 1788-90 Wilkes Co, GA tax list; there were other Wheless families in Warren Co.

In the 1790 federal census Hardy was apparently the "Nordy" Wheales noted living in Edgecombe, Halifax Co, NC with 5 males under 14 and 4 females; living nearby is Joseph Whealles with four total at home. Peter Bird is still living in the same county as Hardy but further from his home.

On 11 Nov 1791 "Handy" Wheels of Halifax Co, NC sold Tristram Drake Sr. of Halifax Co 65 acres adjoining the land of said Drake in Rocky Swamp.

In Nov 1798 in Halifax Co, NC Hardy, Joseph Wheless and James Judge were listed as having a guardian account for orphan Lemuel Wheless.

The Halifax Co, NC Estate Book 1759-1805 showed Hardy Wheless and Tristan Drake listed as insolvent for 1799.

By the time of the 1800 census three new youth had appeared in the Hardy Wheless household, thus establishing the possibility of Hardy and Lydia having up to 11 children by 1800. In 1800 Hardy, listed as age 26-44, was living in Hillsborough, Chatham Co, NC with his wife age over 44 and 1 male under 10, 2 males age 16-25, 2 females under 10, and 1 female age 16-25. Noted in 1800 on the Halifax Co census was a Trustham Drake and on the Nash Co census was Tristram Drake. Also key is that Peter Bird has now moved to this area. Eleven houses from Hardy Wheless' home was the home of this researcher's fifth great granduncle Jesse Rowland junior.

According to the 1 Sep 1803 will of Edmund Drake, Tristram's wife was Elizabeth Valum Drake. A John H. Drake was a witness on many 1771-1786 Halifax Co deeds. Note that a Lydia Drake, daughter to James Drake was still named Lydia Hadley in 1791 when his will was signed in Richmond, VA; not probated in Nash Co, GA. (http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/drake/1998-05/0895206345.)

In 1810 Hardy Wheelis and Abner Wheelis were on the Greene Co, GA tax list.

At age 56 in 1812 Hardy likely did not actively serve during the War of 1812 which lasted until 1815 but likely provided material support; his wife received a widow's pension, apparently from his Revolutionary War service. Other men with the same name could have served. On 12 Jun 1806 a Hardy Wheelas married Hannah Rimes in Greene Co, GA, but Hardy did not list a namesake son in his will. A Hardy Whealis served as a private in the 3rd Regiment, Winberly's, Georgia Militia during the War of 1812.

Hardy was likely living in Jones Co, GA before 1813 because his daughter Temperance married Hiram Bird in Jones Co, GA in 1813. By 1820 Hardy was listed on the census as Hardy Wheles Senior in Jones Co, GA living with his wife and a male age 26 to 44 and a female under age 10. By then Lydia was over age 64, so it is highly unlikely the female child under age 10 in the household was born to her. Thus, caution must be taken in aligning children to Hardy on the basis of his surname and also because he had a namesake living separately with children noted on the Jones Co 1820 census.

The Wheless and Bird families and the Carson and Stubbs families intermarried in earlier years in the Winslett line. Living nearby Hardy Wheless in Jones Co in 1820 were another man named Hardy Wheelas with a family of 8 males and 3 females total; Mathew Whealass and his wife both age 26-44 with 2 males under 10, 1 male 10-15, 3 females under 10, and 1 female 10-15; Syon Wheless; William Stubbs; and John Carson. John Carson was likely the son of our 6th great grandparents John Carson and Esther Stubbs who died in Jones Co, GA in 1823. William Stubbs was likely a descendant of our 6th great grandmother Esther Stubbs who died before 1790. Thus the Wheeles, Bird, Carson and Stubbs families all lived in Jones Co, GA about 1813-1820. Of note, there were no Bird families in the county census by 1820.

Hardy's surname Wheless was also spelled, among other possibilites, as Wheelas, Whelas, Whelass, Whealass, Wheales, Whealis, Wheeles, Wheeless, Whelis, Wheelis, Whellous, Whelous, Whelus, Wheelus, Wheels, Whellr and Wheeler.

Hardy's 28 Mar 1823 will was written when he was ill. He bequeathed "... sorrel mare to my son Cion Wheless .... to my daughter Mary Ross my sorrel filly.... granddaughter Emily Williams one feather bed and stead and furniture ... in case she dies to my two granddaughters Sally Wheless and Sally Ross.... to son Eli Wheless all my bacon above a suffiency for the use of my famiy the present year.... And all the balance of my estate I lend to my beloved wife Lidda Wheless during her natural life unless she see fit to dispose of a part in her life time and at her death I give to my granddaughter Elizabeth Bird a feather bed and stead and furniture... What shall remain of my estate I give to my sons Eli Wheless and Mathew Wheless for them equally to divide ... and that the rest of my children have no part of my estate more than heretofore received .... appoint my son-in-law Roland Ross my lawful executor.... Witnesses: Peter Wyche, Noah Mercer Sr, Noah Mercer Jr."

Hardy and his wife were buried in the Old Wheelus Cemetery in Talbot Co, GA along with the following Wheeless family members: Joseph, Liddie, Mary (daughter of Levi), Missouri, Staci (1st wife of Levi.) Of note, The closest points between Talbot Co and Jones Co where Hardy lived and died is thirty miles.

Hardy's widow Lydia is said to have drawn land in the 1827 Georgia Land Lottery as a "widow of a Revolutionary War Soldier" and resident of Jones County (History of Jones Co, GA, p. 955, 992) however, this researcher was unable to find a military record or widow's award for Hardy Wheless.

Lydia Drake1,2

F, ID# 3667, (a 1757 - 1827)
Charts:Joel Harper Winslett lineage
     Lydia Drake was born a 1757. She married Hardy Wheless, son of Joseph Wheeless II and Mary "Molley" (Unknown), a 1775 at Halifax Co, North Carolina. Lydia Drake died in 1827 at Jones Co, Georgia. She was buried at Old Wheelus Cemetery, Talbot Co, Georgia.
      Although Hardy's Revolutionary War service record has not yet been located by this researcher, Lydia Wheelis of Jones Co, GA was noted as receiving land in the 1827 Georgia Land Lottery in Capt Blount's District, # 189, district 5, Troup Co, GA (Reprint of Official Resigter of Land Lottery of Georgia 1827; 29th Day's Drawing, 9 Apr 1827, p. 89)

Lydia's parents have not been identified; she is believed to be Lydia Drake based on my grandfather Henry Dillard Winslett's bible stating that she was a Drake. Lydia is also noted in official records as Lidia and Lidda.

For no reason other than Lydia and her husband Hardy Wheeles were living near Trustham Drake in the 1786 Halifax Co, NC census, this researcher researched and found Trustham, Tristran, Truston and Trisram Drake who was noted as the son of Richard Drake (b.1684-96 - 1759 Southampton Co, VA and his wife Margaret [Bustin?].) Tristram was born about 1725, was reportedly married to married Zilpha Kirby (conversely William Drake is noted as marrying Zilpah Kirby in other reports and this could have been his namesake son instead), married after 1762 in Halifax Co Elizabeth Ely of Edgecombe Co, NC and died about 1810 - 1815 in Halifax Co, NC (death est 1810-1815 based on siblings' wills). Tristram reportedly had five children: Eli, Richard, Tristram junior, Herbert and Jessee Francis, which obviously does not include a Lydia unless Lydia could be the daughter of his son Tristram junior. Apparently it was his son Tristram junior who was b 1754 and married Elizabeth Volun/Valum from Halifax Co although she is sometimes mentioned as Tristram senior's wife. (http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com).

In addition to these possibilities, a Lydia A. married Thomas Rawls Drake on 28 Jun 1819 in Gates Co, NC. A Lydia Drake born 1771 (daughter of James Drake of Richmond Co, VA who died 9 Jul 1791 likely in Nash Co, NC) married a Mr. Hadley. (http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/drake/2002-06/1024426605)

Tristram witnessed a deeds on 16 May 1752. He also witnessed a deed 15 Nov 1765. (Abstracts of the Early Deeds of Granville Co, NC 1746-1765 by Zae Hargett Gwyn, Rocky Mounty, NC, Joseph W.

In the 1786 Halifax Co census, Trustham senior's household included 4 white males over 16; 1 under, 2 females and 1 slave.

The 1800 NC census includes two Tristram Drakes in Nash Co (age ranges in household: 00010-4001000) and Halifax Co (in one transcription noted as Truistham; age ranges in household: 01010-4001000) respectively. Tristram was on the 1783 Halifax Co tax list.

The following notes concerning Drake families from Edgecombe and Nash Co, NC official records may assist in finding her parents some day. However, although she and her husband were living near Trustram Drake in 1786, Trustram (or other name variations) is not noted in the deeds or wills.

Most comprehensive are the 1778-1868 will book abstracts of Drakes from Nash Co, NC including the families of Augustin, Edmund, Richard son of Tristram and Elizabeth Valum Drake, Edwin, Francis, Harriet Adeline, Hartwell, Hines, James who has a daughter Lyda [Drake] Hadley in 1791, Jonas, Mathew, Mourning, Nathaniel and William.

Drakes noted in Edgecombe Co, NC deed from 1743 until 1798 included James ( who lived along Swift Creek where the Wheeles famiy settled), Nathaniel, Martha, Matthew (Nash Co sherrif), William, Hines, Silas, James, John, John H. (Nash Co justice), Benjamin, Edmund, Augustin, Henry, Matthew junior, Mourning, Mary/Polly (dau of Matthew senior), Edwin, Milbrae, Jacky, Frances, Milbrey, Temperance daughter of Matthew senior, Brittain, Harty, Richard, Fanny, Oroondates/Orrendates, Nathaniel, William junior. Also mentioned was a William Wheless junior on Swift Creek where the Wheless family is said to have settled when they moved to NC. Additional Drakes noted beginning in 1815 until 1875 included Nancy, Lucinda, Selah, Temperance wife of James Drake, Margaret, Allen, Delilah, Benjamin F., John Q. A., Henrietta Y., Hartwell, Selah, Martha and Edwin (and his 5 children Temperance, Robert S., Patience, Sally, and William J.)

PVT Sion Wheless1,2

M, ID# 3669, (1791 - a 1858)
Father:Hardy Wheless (1756 - a 27 Mar 1823)
Mother:Lydia Drake (a 1757 - 1827)
     PVT Sion Wheless was born in 1791 at Halifax, Halifax Co, North Carolina. He was the son of Hardy Wheless and Lydia Drake. PVT Sion Wheless married Elizabeth Sturdivant c 1822. PVT Sion Wheless married Lucy Vaughan on 28 Jun 1835 at Stewart Co, Georgia. PVT Sion Wheless married Nancy Jane Odom on 28 Oct 1847 at Russell Co, Alabama. PVT Sion Wheless died a 1858 at Greenwood, Leflore, Mississippi.
      Sion Wheless was noted as Lyon Wheeless age 26 - 44, a laborer who was unable to read or write, in the 1820 Jones Co, VA census living with his wife age 16 - 25 and a male and female under age 10. By 1830 he was noted as age 40 - 49 in Morgan Co, GA with 1 female under 5, 1 female age 5 - 9, and his wife age 20 - 29.

The Stewart Co, GA 1840 census found a Sion listed as Sion Wheeley age 40 -49 with 1 male under 5, 1 male age 10 - 14, 1 male age 15 - 19, 2 females under 5, 1 female age 10 - 14, and his wife age 30 -39.

Sion apparently married again in 1847 before the death of his second wife Lucy Vaughan. By the 1850 census, Lucy was deceased and Lucy's daughters Emaline, Adaline and Temperance -- were living with their grandparents Howell Vaughan age 60 and his wife Elizabeth age 62 in Fayette Co, GA and were noted as using the surname Vaughan on the census. Lucy's sons Howell and Jasper continued to live with their father.

By 1850 this Sion was enumerated as Siron Wehlas age 51 born about 1799 in South Carolina living in Russell Co, AL with his wife Nancy age 38 and children Howell age 14, Whitfield age 12, Nathan age 10, Jasper age 8, John age 6 and Jacob age 4. The children's birth dates draw into question the 1850 census reporting of the children's ages in that Whitfield's age greatly varies and Jasper and Jacob's ages vary somewhat; the latter two reported ages could possibly vary because their step-mother was uncertain of their ages.

In 1850 a different Sion Wheeless, a farmer age 60 [born in 1790] with 1000 in real estate was living in Meriwether Co, GA in household #131 close to a woman who would be his sister, Temperance Wheless Bird, if he is the correct Sion.

Charts:Joel Harper Winslett lineage
     Temperance "Tempy" A. Wheeles was born c 1794 at Halifax Co ?, North Carolina. She was the daughter of Hardy Wheless and Lydia Drake. Temperance "Tempy" A. Wheeles married Hiram Bird, son of Unknown Bird / Byrd, on 5 Apr 1813 at Jones Co, Georgia. Temperance "Tempy" A. Wheeles died a 1850.
      Temperance Wheless is noted as both Temperance Wheeler and Wheeless in her 5 Apr 1813 Jones Co, GA marriage bond, but the marriage certificate states Wheeler. She was also found in official records as Tempa, Tempy and Timpy.

In 1850 Temerance was noted as Tempa Bird in Meriwether Co, GA census living in household #273 with three of her children -- Matilda, Robert and John, the latter two of whom were farming. Temperance was unable to read or write. Based on her stated age, she was born circa 1794.

Living next to Temperence in 1850 were the families of her son James Madison Bird, a farmer, and her daughter-in-law Priscilla Bird. Mrs. Priscilla Bird, age 33 born in SC and could not read or write, with real estate valued at 2400 was living next door with her children. Living next to James Bird was the family of Hezekiah H. Bussy age 32, a farmer born in Georgia with real estate valued at 550, and his wife Evaline M. Willhite age 37 born in North Carolina with their 5 children. Also nearby were the families of Brise Dollar age 25, John Dollar age 38, James Gates age 55, Benjamin W. Gates age 26, Benjamin Gates age 70, Samuel K.

Hiram Bird1,2,3,4

M, ID# 3675, (a 1786 - 1842)
Father:Unknown Bird / Byrd (a 1760 - )
Charts:Joel Harper Winslett lineage
     Hiram Bird was born a 1786. He was the son of Unknown Bird / Byrd. Hiram Bird married Temperance "Tempy" A. Wheeles, daughter of Hardy Wheless and Lydia Drake, on 5 Apr 1813 at Jones Co, Georgia. Hiram Bird died in 1842. His estate was probated on 4 Mar 1842 at Meriwether Co, Georgia.
      Hiram Bird served in Freeman's Squadron, Cavalry, Georgia Militia as a private in the War of 1812. Maj Frederick Freeman was likely the squadron leader. At least three different captains served under Freeman: Capt William Varner's Troop of Dragoons; Capt William Patterson's Troop of Light Dragoons; and Capt Samuel S. Steele, 1st Lieut. Goodwin Myrick, 2d Lieut. Harris Allen, Cornett John Allen. Hiram's discharge record has not been located.

Hiram was married in 1813 by D. Melson, justice of the peace. He and Harris Harn paid his marriage bond on 3 Apr 1813.

In 1820 Hiram was included in the Putnam Co, GA property tax list but the land was listed as being in Twigs Co, GA (south of Jones Co) on the Ockmulgee (Ocmulgee) River. The orginal grantee is not known. The land was planted in pine, appears to be 101.24 acres or maybe twice that area and was taxed at 31.25 cents. His acreage adjoins the land of Streetmon and other neighbors are Bass and Buckner.

Hiram Byrd was included on the Monticello, Jasper Co, GA census in 1820; not on the Irwin Co, GA 1820 census as often reported online. Jasper Co borders Putnam and Jones counties. Living with Hiram, a farmer who was age 26-44, was his wife age 26-44 and 3 males and 1 female under age 10 for a total of 6. Of note at that time there were 4 Bird families, including 2 Williams, in neighboring Putnam Co and a Richard Bai__ family in Jones Co, GA.

Not knowing where Hiram was born makes tracing his ancestry difficult. In 1820 he was about 30 years old -- still a young man perhaps living with his birth family nearby. Examining Hiram's land and residence in Putnam and Jasper counties respectively, it is important to note those counties are close to Hall Co, GA and Abbyville Co, SC where two Thomas Bird families resided; a Thomas Bird is ONE of the potential fathers of Hiram. Many online trees state Hiram's parents were Thomas or John Bird and Judith May with differing children for each couple, but no proof has been seen; most trees appear to just copy other trees. However, there were many other Bird families living throughout Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina which may include Hiram's father.

In 1830 Hiram was living in Meriwether Co, GA seven homes away from Samuel Winslett. Hiram's daughter Elizabeth Tempy Bird married Samuel Winslett's son John M. C. Winslett that year. Living with Hiram who was age 40-50 was his wife age 30-40 and 1 male under age 5, 1 male age 5-10, 2 males 10-15 and 2 females age 5-10 for a total of 8. Also living nearby was Abner Whelus; Hiram married Hardy Wheless' daughter and Hardy had a brother named Abner Wheless.

Hiram conveyed 33.3 acres in lot 189, fifth district, Troup Co, GA in 1832; he could not write his name. In a Troup Co history, Hiram was noted as one of the ten early settlers of the county, although he was on the Meriwether Co census, so he may have lived along the border of the two counties.

By 1840 Hiram was age 40-49 and his family had expanded in Meriwether Co, GA to include his wife age 40-49 and 1 male under age 5, 1 male age 5-10, 1 male 10-14, 1 male 15-19, 1 male 20-29 and 1 female 5-9, 2 females age 10-14, and 1 female slave age 10-23, for a total of 11. Living next door was his son William A. Bird age 20-30 with his wife age 15-20 and a daughter under age 5. The Whelus family was no longer living nearby.

Hiram's will dated 5 Jan 1842 in Meriwether Co, GA gave his estate to his wife Tempy Bird including his lands, stock, furniture and cash. Hiram provided the estate would be equally divided among his children at his wife's death and $200 would be given the children of Elizabeth Winslett, his deceased daughter. His executors were his wife Tempy Bird and son James Madison Bird. Witnesses: James Seay, Edward Blank and David M. Lerrell. Tempy Bird was still alive in 1850. When Hiram's estate was finally divided among his children, including the Winslett grandchildren, $50 payments went to John Winslett and to M. C. Winslett respectively.

By 1850 Hiram was deceased and there was a Burrel Byrd, a carpenter age 48 born in South Carolina, living in Meriwether Co, GA in household #140 with his wife Cintha A. age 48 and 6 children. All were born in South Carolina.

Hiram's name was usually spelled Bird but was listed as Byrd in the 1820 census so other records may also have the alternate spelling.
