Father:Thomas Atkinson (c 1716 - 1771)
Mother:Patience Chaffin / Chapin (a 1720 - a 1770)
Charts:Amanda Ola Weathers lineage
     Nathan Atkinson was born on 1 Jan 1749 at Southampton Co, Virginia. He was the son of Thomas Atkinson and Patience Chaffin / Chapin. Nathan Atkinson married Martha "Patsey" Whitehead, daughter of Capt. William Whitehead II and Peggy Lewis, on 22 Sep 1774 at Oglethorpe Co, Georgia. Nathan Atkinson died on 8 May 1813 at Greene Co, Georgia, at age 64. His estate was probated on 6 Jul 1813 at Greene Co, Georgia.
      Nathan Atkinson was a pioneer in Greene Co, GA. Nathan was born about Jan 1749/50 in Southampton Co, VA, one of ten children of Thomas and Patience Chaffin(?) Atkinson. Thomas Atkinson and his family moved from Virginia to that part of Edgecombe Co, NC which later became Nash Co, NC. About 1769 Nathan married Martha "Patsey" Whitehead, daughter of Willliam Whitehead, and four of his children were born in North Carolina. Nathan Atkinson served as a Revolutionary soldier in the service of North Carolina, and after the war, he received a land grant in Georgia for his service. Between 1788 and 1790 Nathan moved with his family, his brother Thomas and a sister Betsy to that part of Wilkes Co, GA, which later became Greene County, near present day Union Point. Nathan died about June 1813 in present-day Greene Co, GA. Nathan and Martha had six known children all of whom left their mark in Greene County. The three daughters are of special note because among them they produced a veritable population explosion. (Greene Co, GA Heritage Book 1786-2009, pg 64/65.)

Nathan's grandson Archibald Atkinson reported Nathan's sister Betsy, the wife of John Carroll of Virginia, moved to Georgia with him. It is unknown if one of Nathan's known sisters also used the name Betsy or if Nathan had a seventh sister named Betsy. Their father did not mention a daughter Betsy or Elizabeth in his 1762 will.

Margaret Brown, widow, of Halifax Co, NC sold to Nathan Atkinson of same on 16 Mar 1765 for 10 pounds Virginia money 100 acres which was part of a proprietary deed in 1760, joining Cow Hall (Branch?) and John Bass. Signed Margaret Brown. Witnesses: Absalom Merritt, George Bell, Solomon Joyner. Oct Court 1764. (Dr. Stephen E. Bradley, Jr, Deeds of Halifax Co, NC 1758-1771, Deed Book 9, http://www.therainwatercollection.com/reference/ref219.pdf)

On 12 Oct 1785 Nathan Atkinson and Martha Whitehead Atkinson of Nash County sold Reuben Taylor of the same, for 100 pounds a tract of 220 acres on Beach Run adjoining Thompson and Jenkins. Part of the said land was conveyed by William Whitehead (junior) to Jacob Whitehead by a 6 Jun 1750 deed, part was conveyed by Jacob Whitehead to William Whitehead (junior) by a 5 May 1761 deed, and part was granted to John Jenkins on 1 May 1762. The witnesses were Elisha Pope and Jeremiah Burge.

On 24 Mar 1791 Nathan Atkinson sold Zachariah Thompson, both of Wilkes Co, GA, for 5 pounds 160 acres in Wilkes Co in the forks of Little River adjacent to the lands of Douglas Watson, Jacob Smith and Frederick Williams.

Nathan Atkinson's 3 May 1813 will provided his wife Patsy Atkinson his plantation, plantation utensils and three slaves; gave his son James land; and divided his residual estate in seven parts for his wife and his six children James Atkinson, Elizabeth Winfield, Patience Atkinson, Rodah Atkinson, Lazarus and the heirs of his deceased son Thomas Atkinson, with James and Lazarus Atkinson as his executors. There was no mention of a daughter named Mary. Wittnesses were John Turner, John Pattello, Lewis Mosely, who all affirmed the will for the court in Jul 1813.

     Cpl. Frederick Rowland was born on 5 Jul 1753 at Albemarle Parish, Surry Co, Virginia. He was the son of Jesse Rowland I and Martha (Unknown). Cpl. Frederick Rowland was christened on 26 Aug 1753 at Albemarle Parish, Surry Co, Virginia. He married Sealey Huckaby, daughter of James Huckaby II and Sealey Williams, c 1772 at Granville Co, North Carolina. Cpl. Frederick Rowland died b 1827 at Greene Co, Georgia.
      Frederick Rowland was born just across the James River from Jamestown, VA. He migrated along with other Rowland family members to new lands available in North Carolina.

Frederick served almost six months from 22 Jun 1779 until 9 Dec 1779 in Barrard's Unit, 10th Regiment in the Continental Line in North Carolina during the Revolutionary War for which he apparently received nine months credit for serving. He received payment for his service after he moved to Georgia. Also serving as privates in North Carolina were John Rowland in 1781 in Lytle's unit and William Rowland in Yarborough's unit in 1781; either of these might be Frederick's brothers or sons or not related.

Frederick Rowland was in the 1790 Wake Co, NC census with 4 males under age 16 and 4 females.

The Rowland and Huckaby families -- namely Frederick, Sealey and their parents -- migrated to Oglethorpe Co, Georgia between 1789 and 1792. Although Wilkes Co was created in 1777, Franklin in 1783, Washington in 1784, Greene in 1789 and Oglethorpe in 1792, many early deeds were recorded in Wilkes Co, GA.

By 1792 Frederick and his two sons Hiram and Jordan were in the Wilkes Co, GA tax records and subsequently appear in various records in Oglethorpe and Greene Counties, GA as can be traced by censuses, deeds and wills.

On 13 Jul 1795 Frederick Rowland, Robert Warnock and William George, esquire were bound by 400 pounds sterling with securities of 200 pounds sterling to administer Matthew Warnock's estate.

Frederick and other members of the Rowland family participated in the 1805 Georgia Land Lottery. The other participants were Frederick's son Hiram Rowland; Elizabeth Rowland, widow of Jordan Rowland I, and her son Revis Rowland. Each person indicated they were a Greene County resident; all drew blanks and none received a land grant.

Frederick apparently spent the rest of his life farming. He was listed on the 1796 Oglethorpe Co, GA and 1805 Greene Co, GA tax lists and was found in the 1820 but not in the 1830 Greene Co, GA census. No will or estate has been found for him in Greene Co, GA.

In the 1827 land lottery his widow Celey (sic) Rowland of Greene Co, GA received land in Woodham's District, lot 39, Dist. 23, section 2 in western Georgia in the area of present-day Muscogee, Troup, Coewta, Lee and Carroll counties.

All of their children were born in North Carolina and three survived to adulthood, moved to Georgia and married.

James Huckaby II1,2,3,4,5

Father:James Huckaby I (a 1697 - a 1762)
Mother:Mary Fellows (a 1701 - )
Charts:Amanda Ola Weathers lineage
     James Huckaby II was born a 1725 at North Carolina. He was the son of James Huckaby I and Mary Fellows. James Huckaby II married Sealey Williams, daughter of Joseph Williams and Franky Chaney, a 1751. James Huckaby II died a 19 May 1796 at Oglethorpe Co, Georgia. His estate was probated on 24 Jun 1796 at Oglethorpe Co, Georgia.
      Researcher Thomas Huckabee conducted detailed research on James Huckaby's life in North Carolina which is recounted below.

James Huckerby and James Huckabie, apparently father and son, conducted the inventory and account for the estate of Thomas Lanier, deceased, on 24 Sep 1751 and 3 Jan 1752. (Brunswick Co, VA Will Book 3) James junior was at the age of majority or older when he did this work for the court.

James Huckaby bought 200 acres of land from his brother John Huckaby on 19 Mar 1761 in Halifax Co, NC. (Halifax Co, NC Register of Deeds, Vol. 7, 1759 -1760; LDS FILM 0317044)

James Huckaby junior and his wife Sealey sold 200 acres in Halifax Co, NC to Owen Flukes on 4 Dec 1762 (Halifax Co, NC Register of Deeds, Vol. 8, pg 1-443; 1761-1764 LDS Film 0317045) This was the last record researcher Thomas Huckabee found with James Huckaby using junior after his name, thus James Huckaby senior may have died about 1762.

Parsing North Carolina records between James Huckaby and his namesake father, as well as other men with that frequently used name, was problematic. Using researcher Thomas Huckabee's finding that the son did not use the suffix junior after 1762, the following records are believed to belong to James Huckaby junior, although James' son John was reportedly born in Franklin Co in 1768, thus indicating a residence there as well.

Granville Co, NC was formed in 1746 from Edgecombe Co, the eastern portion became Bute Co in 1764, and Bute was divided in 1779 to form Franklin Co. So although it appeared James was moving from place to place, based on present-day maps he may never have moved. James Huckaby was noted in Bute Co, NC in 1765.

On 16 May 1765 Thomas Haerrod sold James Huckaby for 1,000 pounds proclamation money 300 acres on Bear Swamp, adjacent to the lands of Chas. Ivy, George Price and Lanier, originally part of an Earl Granville Grant to John Fikes on 11 Mar 1760. (Halifax Co, NC Deed Book A, 1764-1766, p. 326)

Based on Bute Co, NC court notes, in May 1769 James served on the Grand Jury; paid taxes in 1771 and 1773; and served as a juror on 14 Aug 1771 and 11 Feb 1778. (Bute Co, NC Minutes of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions, 1767-1779)

On 9 Nov 1774 a deed from Thomas Huckaby to his older brother James Huckaby was proved by the oath of Benjamin Seawell, a witness thereto, and on motion the same was admitted to be registered in Bute Co, NC. (Bute Co, NC Minutes of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions, 1767-1779)

On 16 Mar 1778 James Huckaby entered 640 acres in Bute Co, NC. (Bute Co, NC Minutes of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Session, 1767-1779) This may have meant James filed a deed for 640 acres he acquired.

On 13 May 1778 James' wife Celia (Sealey) made oath to her account as a witness for Thomas House against James Huckaby amounting to eight shillings and one penny proclamation money. (Bute Co, NC Minutes of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Session beginning 1767) Because her son James was only about age 15, Sealy likely testifying against her husband. The following year James' son Philip also testified against his father in support of Thomas House. All must have been forgiven because both James' wife Sealy and their son Philip received bountiful bequests in James' will.

On 25 Mar 1780 the Franklin Co, NC court stated 640 acres were to be laid off and surveyed for James Huckobey in Franklin Co, the land formerly in dispute between J. Huckaby, Gwin, Pinner, and Morris Reyly, so as not to interfere with Gwin's and Pinner's survey, otherwise than agreeable to the court of Warren County. The warrant stated the land was on the waters of the Tarr River in Franklin Co, NC. However succeeding documents only showed 366 acres were surveyed for James Huckaby on the Tarr River adjoining the lands at Gwin's Corner, Wm. J. Rayleys, Hills, Richmond's Corner and back to Gwins Corner. This document was signed Jas. Huckobey (illegible -- senior?) and Phil. J. Huckobey, likely his son who was age 20.

On 19 Nov 1789 William Huckaby of Wilkes Co, GA made his friend James Huckably of Franklin Co, NC his attorney.

The 1790 Halifax District, Franklin Co, NC census included three James Huckaby families and in adjacent Wake Co, NC there was a James Huckabee family as well. In Wake County the Huckabee family had 2 males over and 1 male under age 16, 3 females, and 1 slave; this was James Huckabee born about 1766 and died about 1850, who was the son of John born about 1737 and the grandson of James and Mary Fellows Huckaby.

In Franklin County the three Huckaby families in 1790 had 2 males under and 2 males over age 16, 8 females, and 11 slaves in the first home, which is believed to be that of our James born about 1725; 2 males under and 1 over age 16, 2 females, and no slaves in the second home, believed to be that of James's son James III born about 1765; and in the last home there were 2 males under and 2 males over age 16, 4 females and 8 slaves, whose head is unknown but could potentially have been our James born about 1725.

Placing James with his family and slaves into one of these 1790 households proved somewhat problematic, both because of the number of known children and slaves in the households. In 1790 James only had five unmarried daughters, only one known son under age 16, and by 1796 he had 12 slaves. In the 1790 census our James likely had 2 males over age 15 (James and likely son John), 2 males under age 16 (son Brittian and an unknown male), 8 females (wife Sealey; unmarried daughters Creasey, Sarah, Jenna, Susannah, Chaney, and 2 unknown females; and 11 slaves -- a large portion of the 12 slaves (5 men, 3 boys and 6 female slaves) bequeathed six years later. The alternative placement would have left two unmarried daughters unaccounted for.

On 12 Feb 1791 James Huckaby senior of Franklin Co, NC sold land before moving to Wilkes Co, GA in 1792.

On 14 Feb 1791 Joseph Williams of Wilkes Co, GA deeded James Huckaby of Franklin Co, NC for 400 pounds 368 acres on Sherrils Creek.

James Huckaby of Franklin Co deeded a gift on 1 Mar 1793 to his grandchildren -- the children of his daughter Sealey Huckaby Rowland. Hiram, Lissey, Jordan and Cressey Rowland all of Franklin Co, NC of were deeded all his goods and chattels including livestock and kitchen utensils to be equally divided among them. Witnesses were James Knell and James' son Phillip Huckaby. His grandchildren were ages 13 to 21.

James Huckaby was on the 1793 Thornton's District, Wilkes Co, GA census. Wilkes and Oglethorpe counties were continguous and the latter was established in 1795.

James Huckaby's 16 May 1796 Oglethorpe Co, GA will was critical for understanding who was in his family. His will names his wife Sealey Huckaby and his children: eldest daughter Elizabeth Huckaby (and her husband, so this is a married name), Sealey Roland, unmarried daughter Creasey Huckaby with considerable bequests, daughter Wineford Ive, daughter Sally Simmons, son Philip Huckaby, son James Huckaby, daughter Jenna Christopher, son John Huckaby, daughter Susanna Huckaby, daughter Chaney Huckaby, and son Brittian Huckaby. His executors were Brittian Huckaby, Amsted Atkins, Zachariah Robertson and Edmund Daniel and his witnesses were Thomas Bridges (who married Susanna after this will was signed), John Thomas and Edmund Daniel. This data is from the original will; note the online transcription of his will is incomplete for the daughters' full names and in addition to the original there was a hand-written copy online. Among James' bequests were slaves to his children; the land where he resided on the south side of Sherrels Creek adjoining the land of Tuggle and Asbury to his son Philip with the remainder of his land to his son Brittian. Isham Huckaby (born between 1742 - 1763 NC and died 1835 Coweta Co, GA) which some trees add to this family was unlikely to be James' son because he was not included in the will.

This researcher established birth and marriage dates for James and Sealey's children based on events that occurred in the lives of their own children -- in other words marriages and first children's births were key. For example, Elizabeth was noted in her father's will as the oldest daughter and Elizabeth's first child was born in 1773, so that established a framework for the beginning of James' family. And because Chancey, who was listed in the will as the next to last child, was on the 1850 census at age 74 that helped set an end point for the family and also an estimated birth date for their mother Sealey Williams.

The 1796 estate settlement bequests to the children totalled $1,725 but did not include Sealey's $8 livestock allocation done the following year. James bequeathed our ancestor his daughter Sealey a cow and calf. His son Philip received the land where James lived on the south side of Terrels Creek adjoining the lands of Tuggle and Asbury with a portion to James' wife and daughter Creasey. Most of his children were also given a slave, except for his daughters Sealey and Chaney. Interestingly the women in this family generally received and signed for their allocations personnally, as opposed to the following generation for example when the estate allocations were made to Frederick Rowland's sons-in-law.

In Jan 1797 a large portion of the estate including four negro men, 20 cows, 3 horses and numerous home and farm implements were turned over to James' wife Ceiley Huckaby. The 24 Jan 1806 estate sale likely occurred after her death and included neighbors and family members, especially James' children Creasey and Brittian, and son-in-law William Huckaby. Daughter Sealey's husband Frederick -- noted as Fed and Fedrich -- bought a saddle, bell, slay, sifter, coffee pot, cups, saucers, crockery, tumblers, bowls, 8 chairs, a looking glass, pair of sad irons, 8 barrels of corn, oats, a cow, fodder, and apparently two basins and plow at the estate sale. Note that estate cash was paid to the brother-in-law of Winnifred Ivey -- Anthony Ivey, and Elias, Ned and James Ivey made estate sale purchases.

The following 14 Mar 1806 small estate sale only to family members included 2 hoes and 2 beds sold to Frederick Rowland and a pot and 2 saddles sold to Moses Williams. On this document James' daughter Jenna is likely the Jane Christopher. James' son-in-law Moses Williams purchased a wheel, 397 pounds of pork, jugs, and a horse. The estate sales and accounts due to it apparently totalled $1,028.

     Creasey Rowland was born a 1774 at Franklin Co, North Carolina. She was the daughter of Cpl. Frederick Rowland and Sealey Huckaby.
      Researcher Ray Rowland believes there is a chance Creasy Rowland may be the same woman as Creasey Huckably found in an 1808 land transaction, and if Creasy is short for Lucretia, there was also a transaction for a Lucretia Huckaby who could be the same person as well.
