Unknown Wheat

M, ID# 10628, (a 1775 - )
Charts:Virginia Custis Winslett lineage
Amanda Ola Weathers lineage
     Unknown Wheat was born a 1775. He married Elisabeth (Unknown) a 1800.
      Jonathan Wheat stated he was born in North Carolina on the 1850 census, as did his death certificate; the 1860 census stated his birth was in Georgia, but that census taker appeared to have reversed the birth places of Jonathan and his wife. Born circa 1811, Jonathan would have been enumerated as about age 19 on the 1830 census; there were no Wheat families on the 1830 Greene Co, GA census.

An examination of Wheats from Maryland to Tennessee on the 1830 census showed the following families who had household males, other than themselves, who were age 15-19 and 20-24 and therefore could have included Jonathan: Levy Wheat and Reason Wheat of Albemarle Co, VA; Zachariah Wheat of Bedford Co, VA; James Whieat of Frederick Co, VA; John Wheat in Greene Co, KY; Dory Wheat in Hawkins Co, TN; Drury/Diany in McMinn Co, TN; Moses Wheat of Upson Co, GA; Wesley Wheat of Campbell Co, GA; Harris Wheat of Kershaw Co, SC; and John Wheat in Guilford Co, NC. Of these men the last four would potentially be the most likely fathers of Jonathan because of their geographical location in 1830.

The general migration path in the United States at that time was south and then southwest. Guilford Co, NC is in the central part of the state near the VA border. Kershwaw Co, SC is near the NC border, due south from Guilford Co, NC. Greene Co, GA where Jonathan married in 1838 is centrally located toward the SC border and southwest of Kershaw Co, SC. Upson Co, GA is not far southwest of Greene Co and Campbell Co, GA was due west of Greene Co near the Alabama border.

Geographically Jonathan could have come from any of these counties to get to Greene Co in 1838 but he is more likely to have come south and southwest from Guilford Co, NC or Kershaw Co, SC. Thus his father is more likely to be John of Guilford or Harris from Kershaw with Moses of Upson and Wesley of Campbell also being options.

In researching the John Wheat family of Guilford Co, John was age 60-69 in the 1830 census, so he was likely born 1761-1770 and died after 1830. Living with him in 1830 were 1 male age 15-19 and 1 male 20-29 and his wife who was also 60-69. No other census or other records could clearly be identified with John in 2016 because this was the only census on which he was noted in the county and similarly only one family tree traced John but provided no evidence of descent.

In researching the Harris Wheat family of Kershaw Co, more data was available. A Harris Wheat was born to Basil Wheat and Mary Ridgeway in Union Co, SC, close to Kershaw Co, in 1786 according to an unreliable source; the birth date may have been incorrectly reported because a Harris Wheat was living on his own in 1790. In 1790 Basil Wheat, enumerated as Barrel Wheat, was living in Union Co, SC with 6 males under 16, 3 females and 2 slaves. That same year in 1790 a Harris Wheat, over age 15, was living in Orangeburg Co, SC, which is 3 counties south from Kershaw; his household had 1 male under 16 and 1 female. If this Harris was about 25 at this time, by 1810 he would have been about age 45.

The remainder of the Harris Wheat records are in Kershaw Co. In 1810 Harris, age over 44, had 2 males and 2 females under 10, 1 male 10-15, 1 male 16-25, and his wife age 26-44. Harris was listed on the cotton manufacturing census with 7 looms and 200 yards cotton worth $50 each yard. In 1820 Harris and his wife, both over age 44, were in Kershaw Co with 1 male 10-15, 1 male 16-25, 1 male 26-44, 1 female under 10, and 1 female 10-15. By 1830 Harris, age 60-69, resided with 1 male 20-29, 1 female each age 15-19, 20-29, and 50-59. In 1840 Harris, age 70-79, was still residing in the county with 1 male and 1 female 20-29, and one female 50-59.

Tracing back to 1820 when Jonathan Wheat would have been about age nine, the only Wheat on the 1820 North or South Carolina censuses with males at home that were about age 9 were Harris Wheat in South Carolina, already discussed above, and Basdel (Basil?) Wheat, age 26-44, in Laurens Co, SC, adjacent to Union Co, with 3 males under age 10 at home; this may be the same line as the Basil Wheat discussed above but no other records were found for Basdel.

While the research above on the elusive John Wheat of Guilford Co, NC and the sedentary Harris Wheat of Kershaw CO, SC is interesting, it does not prove any relationship with our Jonathan Wheat other than, if Jonathan was actually born in North Carolina in 1811, according to the available census records there did not appear to be a Wheat living in NC who had a nine-year-old son in 1820, so by 1820 the family may have moved on to Georgia.

LT Robert Duke of Richland SC & Marion MS1,2,3,4,5

M, ID# 10629, (a 1751 - a 1820)
Father:Nehemiah Duke (a 1730 - 1781)
Mother:Elizabeth Brown (c 1730 - 30 Nov 1813)
Charts:Joel Harper Winslett lineage
     LT Robert Duke of Richland SC & Marion MS was born a 1751. He was the son of Nehemiah Duke and Elizabeth Brown. LT Robert Duke of Richland SC & Marion MS died a 1820.
      According to Duke researcher Tony Cox, Robert Duke, a Revolutionary War veteran who was the son of Nehemiah Duke, used his war pay to buy William Dorch's 445 acres on Cedar Creek that drains into the Broad River in northern Richland Co, SC. The Kinsler family was shown living adjacent on Cedar Creek on an 1825 map. Tony noted Robert's mother Elizabeth Duke lived east on the Round Top Branch of Twenty Five Mile Creek. Robert and his mother Elizabeth settled about 1775 on the Round Top Branch of Twenty Five Mile Creek near the present-day town of Blythewood, SC.

According to the research of Tony Cox, Robert Duke, Jr. served with the South Carolina Revolutionary War Patriots under Captain William Simmons, Colonel Robert Goodwyn, and General Williamson during the Florida Expedition. Robert Duke, Jr. was also paid for forty-eight days on horse, sixty-two days on foot, and thirty-two days on foot with the rank of Lieutenant. This service occurred during 1781 and 1782 with Colonel Thomas Taylor's Regiment under Captain William Goodwin and Lieutenant ThomasTrap. The first service was "... at the Congaree and Junerpe ...", the second, "... at Orange Burg and Ft. Nimrod ...", and the last, as a Lieutenant, "... at Orange Burgh...."

Tony Cox believes Robert Duke used the suffix junior to distinguish himself from his mother's neighbor and likely brother-in-law Robert Duke of Fairfield, who died about 1785. A couple of decades earlier, another Robert Duke, likely Robert Duke of Fairfield, received a SC Colony land grant in southern Lancaster Co, SC on the Cedar Creek that drains west into the Wateree River. All three Robert Dukes along with Moses Duke of Kershaw and Elias Dukes were members of what Tony called the Twenty-Five Mile Creek Dukes because they lived part or all of their lives on that slow bend of Twenty Five Mile Creek, sometimes called Rice Creek, east of Blythewood, which is on Cedar Creek.

Robert Dukes was in the 1790 Richland Co, SC census with 2 males under 16, and 3 females. He is believed to be a son of Nehemiah and Elizabeth Dukes and the brother of Samuel Dukes who is listed in the 1790 Fairfield Co census with Robert, Moses and Thomas Duke living nearby.

In 1810 there were 2 Robert Duke, both over age 45, in Richland Co, SC. The man thought to be our Robert was living with his presumed wife both of them age 45 or higher, with 1 male under 10, 1 female age 10-15, 2 males and 1 female age 16-25, and 17 people noted as "other free persons" for a total of 24 members. Robert's presumed children are thought to be Hardeman, Jeptha, Elias, Simeon, Daniel and two daughters.

In the 1816 Marion Co, MS census Robert had 1 male [possibly son Daniel] and 1 female under age 21, 4 males [possibly Jeptha, Simeon, an unknown son, and Robert himself] and 2 females over age 21 and 8 slaves (http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=shannon50&id=I035326.) By 1820 Robert Duke junior was living near the Pearl River in Marion Co, MS; Tony Cox suspected some of Robert's family went with him to MS before 1820 and some followed later.

In 1820 Robert and his wife, both shown as over age 44, lived at Pearl River, Marion Co, MS with 1 male and 1 female age 16-25 and 1 male and 1 female age 26-44, but no slaves; he paid no poll tax. The proof that this is the particular Robert who relocated from Richland Co, SC was the 1831 pension application of William Wilson in Fairfield Disctrict, SC and the 6 Nov 1850 pension application of Mahalah Wilson, the widow of William Wilson, in Richland Co, SC. William Wilson was the son of John Wilson, Elizabeth Duke's neighbor in Fairfield Co., SC.

Robert served in the Revolutionary War under the South Carolina militia. Attached to William Wilson's 1831 pension application, payment for which he received until his 1837 death, was the 20 Nov 1824 Marion Co, MS deposition of Robert Duke of Marion Co wherein he stated he personally knew William Wilson long before and after 1779 and the deposition was signed Rot. Duke. Mahalah Wilson declared William was living in Fairfield District, SC during the Revolutionary War and served two to three years in the company commanded by Capt. William Simmons under the regiment of militia commanded by Col. Robert Goodwyn/Goodwin. Mahalah said her husband was in the expedition of forces that went to Florida, commonly known as the Florida Expedition under Gen. Andrew Williamson. During her husband's time in the military, he served with Robert Duke from his neighborhood who had moved to Mississippi some years ago. (Southern Campaign American Revolution Pension Statements and Returns, Pension Application William Wilson R11688, widow Mahalah Wilson, http://revwarapps.org/r11688.pdf, transcribed by Will Graves, 31 May 2010)

According to researcher Tony Cox, a 12 marker Y-DNA test for a descendant of Simeon Dukes from Marion County, MS, born in SC, matches a marker with descendants of Moses, Abraham, Darrington, and Robert Duke of Fairfield Co, SC.

     PVT Darrington J. Dukes was born c 1819 at Kershaw Co, South Carolina. He was the son of Elias Duke and Emily "Milly" Francis Elkins. PVT Darrington J. Dukes married Elizabeth "Betsy" Singleton on 3 Feb 1846 at Clarke Co, Alabama. PVT Darrington J. Dukes died b 1900 at Clarke Co, Alabama.
      Darrington J. Duke, age 40, and his wife Elizabeth Singleton were living in Grove Hill, Clarke Co, AL in 1860 with their family; they resided next to Richard Singleton senior age 64, Joseph Singleton age 34, and Richard Singleton 42, likely Elizabeth's relatives. Their marriage was also recorded in the old bible which descended in James Dukes family.

Darrington had two Alabama land patents dated 1 Sep 1860.

Darrington served for Alabama in the Confederate military from 1861 until 1865. He was a prisoner of war in Selma, AL but any wounds he may have received are not known. An 1898 land record for a Darrington Dukes may either be for him or for his namesake son. Elizabeth's 1897 civil war widow's application implied Darrington died within 5 years of the end of the civil war. So Darrington may have died before Jun 1870 or as late as after 1898.

In 1900 Elizabeth was enumerated as Elizabeth Singleton Dunes, a widow age 71, living in Jackson, Clarke Co, AL with her nephew Jack Singleton age 45 and Virginia O. Singleton, age 45. Elizabeth stated she was the mother of four children, none of whom were living.

     Sophia Schuette was born in Jun 1836 at Varrel, Diepholz, Lower Saxony, Germany. She immigrated c 1860. She married Heinrich "Henry" Fresemann I c 1861. Sophia Schuette died on 20 Jun 1905 at Glen Osborne, Allegheny Co, Pennsylvania;
Sophia Schuette, age 70, died on Tuesday morning at the home of her son, W. L. Freseman in Glen Osborne. Mrs Freseman was born in Varrel, province of Hanover, Germany in 1836 and came to America in 1860, settling in Allegheny, where she had lived almost continuously until the time of her death. (Pittsburgh Press, Pittsburg, PA, p. 8, 22 Jun 1905 -- Sophia Freseman obituary.) She was buried on 23 Jun 1905 at Allegheny Co, Pennsylvania.
      In 1874 a Sophia Fresemann was listed as a member of St. Matthew's Evangelical Lutheran Church, Allegheny, PA; this person was only marked as a member on this list that one year. Our Sophia and her family joined this church in 1875, was listed on the Fresemann family register, and remained members with their subseqent children's births, confirmations and deaths recorded, based on church records until they moved about 1898. Her name was spelled Schuette on the family register page which is the Dutch spelling, Schulty in the index, Schutte on her daughter Lydia's death registration, and in Germany would have been spelled Schuumlauttte (sic.)

Sophia died at age 70 or 71 based on two different obituaries, "at the home of her son W. L. Freseman in Glen Osborne. Mrs Freseman was born in Varrel, province of Hanover, Germany in 1836 and came to America in 1860, settling in Allegheny, where she had lived almost continuously until the time of her death." (Pittsburgh Press, Pittsburg, PA, p. 8, 22 Jun 1905 -- Sophia Freseman obituary) "On Tuesday, 20 Jun at the residence of her son W. L. Freseman, Glen Osborne, PA, Sophia Freseman, widow of the late Henry Freseman in her 71st year. Funeral services at the residence of her son H. C. Freseman, 15 Leland Avenue, Allegheny, PA, Thursday 23 Jun 1905." (Pittsburg Press, Pittsburgh, PA, p. 6, 21 Jun 1905 -- Sophia Freseman obituary) Varrel was about 40 miles from Hanover as the crow flies. Early records for Varrel births have not been found; Varrel was the location of World War II German fighter-bomber and bomber units

Although Sophia Schuette's ancestors have not been traced because as yet her parents are unknown, the St. Matthew's Evangelical Lutheran Church register provided data on her possible relatives Katharine Wilhelmine Schuette, Caroline Wilhelmine Schuette, Minna Schuette, Amos Dietrich Schuette, Clemens Schuette and Clamor[?] Schuette; because they were her contemporaries they could be siblings and/or cousins. Despite these many Schuette records, no Schuettes were included in the church membership list. There was no index for this church register and it was difficult to search electronically because of transcription errors, thus this researcher reviewed a lot of the register page by page. Although this researcher believes she found the majority of the Freseman and Schuette principles, there may be others who are witnesses and were not recorded below. Most troubling was the ancestry.com transcription of the Fresemann family record incorrectly showed the date they joined the church to be the death date of all 10 family members. Also found in the church records was:
--On 3 Sep 1873 Katharine Wilhelmine Schuette and Hermann Heinrich Steinbrink, both of Allegheny, married. The witnesses were Heinrich Seimann [looks like Kleimann but does not make sense in this context,] Marie Christ. Steinbrick, Christian Niemeyer, and Maria Brueggemann. This was the first marriage listed in the church register. (electronic age 135)
--On 15 Oct 1874 Heinrich Wilhelm Simon [sic] and Caroline Wilhelmine Schuette, both of Allegheny, married at the church. The witnesses were Wilh. Simon, Maria [?]espenheider, Heinr. Meyer and Minna Schuette. (electronic age 135)
--On 14 Apr 1875 Heinrich Siemann senior [did not include Wilhelm in name] and his wife Sophie Mattoh both from Hanover, Germany and their children Wilhelm, Ferdinand and Caroline were listed on a family page. On 23 May 1885 Henrich died. (electronic page 16)
–Also on 14 Apr 1875 Henrich Wilhelm Siemann junior and his wife Caroline Wilhelmine Schuette both of Hanover, Germany and their children Anna Sophia (an X is by her name and the date 27 May 1877, so this is likely when Anna died), Edward Heinrich, Emilie Louise, Carl Wilhelm and Heinrich Albert joined the church. (electronic page 16)
--On 10 Sep 1877 Heinrich Wilihelm Siemann and Carolina Schuette had a son Edward Heinrich Siemann and christened 11 Sep 1877; his sponsors were Wilhelm and Marie Schuette (electronic version p. 44.)
--In 1879 when Heinrich Fresemann and Sophia Schuette's twins were christened, Concordia's sponsors were Sophia Schrader and Wilhelm Conrad Boettcher, and Amos' sponsors were Amos Dietrich Schuette and Wilhelmine Schuette. (electronic version p. 48/original p. 70 birth and electronic version p. 153, Amos' death).
--On 8 Dec 1879 Wilhelmine Caroline Schuette, daughter of Clemens Schuette and Elizabeth Mueller, died; she was age 15 years, 9 months, 28 days old at her death (electronic p. 152.)

Concordia Sophia Wilhelmine Fresemann1,2

F, ID# 10649, (12 Aug 1879 - )
Father:Heinrich "Henry" Fresemann I (Apr 1833 - 21 Apr 1902)
Mother:Sophia Schuette (Jun 1836 - 20 Jun 1905)

Concordia Sophia Wilhelmine Fresemann was christened on 31 Aug 1879 at Saint Matthews Evangelical Lutheran Church, Pittsburgh, Allegheny Co, Pennsylvania. She married Cassius A. Seanor on 19 Sep 1898 at Denver, Denver Co, Colorado.
      Concordia Sophia Wilhelmine Freseman was a twin sister to Amos. Concordia was likely the child of Henry and Sophia's reported as "Courtlandt born about 1882" by William Langfitt Freseman because Concordia was one of the five siblings -- including John, William, Henry and Claudius -- still alive in 1900; alternatively William Langfitt Freseman could have been referring to Claudius. There was no birth for a Courtlandt Freseman in the St Matthews church register.

The relationship between Concordia's husband Cassius A. Seanor and Charles B. Seanor who was living in her father's Henry Freseman's home in Denver, Co in 1901 is unknown. However Charles B. Seanor was born in 1866, married in 1896 and lived in Pittsburg, PA and also in Columbian Co, OH -- Concordia's husband's death and burial locations. Among diverse geographical locations, Charles worked at Seanor Brothers in Columbiana Co, OH.
