|110||Robert was b. Sunday 22 July, 1734. He m. Asenath Phipps 21 Jan., 1760. His marriage was not recorded in his father's Bible and he was disowned by the Uwchlan M.M. for being married before a magistrate.|
Asenath was the d/o Nathan Phipps who was the s/o Joseph Phipps. Joseph came to the Colonies with William Penn in 1682 and he represented Chester Co. in the First Assembly held in Philadelphia in 1688. He was a bosom friend of William Penn and was with him at the Great Treaty with the Indians under the Elm Tree. In Benjamin West's famous picture of the scene he, Joseph Phipps, is represented as standing by the side of Mr. Penn. Asenath's mother, whose name is not known, died at the age of 104 years old near Philadelphia. She was a little Welsh woman and it is said that she had walked 4 miles a short time before her death. Robert d. 7 Sept., 1760, about 3 months before his son, Jehu (27) was born. A grand daughter, Marie John Hitts, was quoted as saying her grandmother, Elizabeth, wife of Jehu, said that Jehu's father, Robert, took a severe cold from falling in a mill race and died from the effects of it, only 26 years o;d. Dr. J. J. John thought he was drowned in Darby Creek.
Following was copied from the Records of the Monthly Meetings at the Friends Church in Uwcchlan: "Robert John s/o Griffith, the emigrant, died leaving a wife and 1 child, Jehu John, 1760." Griffith John, Jr., a brother, was appointed the administrator. His report, filed in court in 1762 shows the distribution as follows: To Jehu, the son, 34 L., 6 S., 7 D. and to Asenath, his wife, 17 L., 3 S., and 4 D. Asenath later remarried and had 7 issue by this husband.

|121||The Family Of Mordecai And Mary D. Price.|
Mordecai Price and Mary Dillon were married in the year 1802, the marriage being solemnized in Friends' Meeting-house at Gunpowder, Maryland. The house in which they first settled was their home during all their married life. It is near what is known as " The New Meeting House," at Gunpowder. It was at that home that all the children were born, and that the mother and three of her daughters passed away.
The names of the ten children were, Isaiah B., Rebecca (who left these memoranda), Elizabeth, Ann D., Hannah, Mary, Martha, Moses D., Mordecai and Deborah. The sons all married, and of the daughters, Elizabeth married Dr. Mahlon C. Price, Ann D. married Abraham Scott, and Deborah married Albert Hoopes. The other four did not marry.
They all died before Rebecca, except Mordecai and Deborah, who are still living, 1896.
|122||The following is from page 500 of the reprint of Chester (and its Vicinity,) Delaware County in Pennsylvania with Genealogical Sketches of some old families, by John Hill Martin, Esq., originally published 1877, reprint by John A. Bullock III, Reidsville, NC, 1999: "William Hewes . . . was married 9 mo. 12, 1713, at Chichester Meeting, to Mary, the daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth Withers, and granddaughter of Jeremiah Collett, of Chichester, who was, I believe, the same who married Jane, eldest daughter of Joan May, of Devizes in Wilts, 'a first purchaser.' He is styled a mason in some old writings, but probably followed farming to some extent. His wife survived him and died about 1750. Their children were William, John, Samuel, Isaac, Caleb, Sarah, Lydia, Rebecca and Hannah. William married (1st) Lydia Dutton and (2nd) Rebecca Gregory, and died in 1753, leaving but one child, Aaron, to survive him. John married Mary, the daughter of Thomas Barnard, and granddaughter of Richard and Frances Barnard of Aston. He died in 1759, leaving two children, Christian and Jacob. His widow soon afterward married Archibald Dick, and her daughter married about 1764, Elisha Dick, who was probably a brother to Archibald. John Hewes, of Chichester, Tanner, in his will, dated Feb. 2, 1759, proven Mar. 2, 1759, gave to his wife Mary the Homestead for life, and afterwards to his children Christianna and Jacob. Also to his wife 200 acres in Douglass Township, Berks Co., purchased of Thomas Barnard, until the children became of age or married. Some other land in Chichester and Berks Co. to be sold by ex-ecutors, his wife and Richard Dutton, of Aston. In case the children did not live to inherit, the property to go to 'Aaron Hewes, son of brother William, and to such sons of brother Samuel Hewes as should be living at the time.' Jacob Hewes was the father of the present Jacob Hewes, of Ridley. Samuel Hewes, above, married and settled in Jersey. Isaac married Lydia Weldon, and left a daughter. Sarah married (?)Robert Moulder and left a daughter Sarah, who married Nathaniel Falconer. Lydia married Wm. Grubb; Rebecca, Samuel Grubb; and Hannah, William Vaughan." From page 216 of Early Church Records of Delaware Co., Pa, by Henry C. Peden Jr, MA, and John Pitts Launey: "Mary (Withers) Hewes of Chichester, widow of William, in her will dated 29th of 4th mo, 1748, proven 20th of 6th mo, 1750, mentions sons William [4th], John, Samuel, Isaac and Caleb, and daus. Lydia Grubb (wife of Wm), Rebecca Grubb (wife of Samuel) and Hannah Hewes, also mentions grand-dau. Sarah Moulder."||Family: F929

|124||The Maddock family came from the Chester, England. As early as the 16th century, seven Maddocks were admitted to the|
City of Chester as Freemen (craftsmen who were permitted to do business within the city walls) and Maddocks are listed in the
first parish registers of St. John the Baptist Church. By the time of the Hearth Tax of 1664--65 in Chester, there were at least 14
Maddock families in the city. Nathan Maddock (1642-1680) was a respected member of the Frandley Monthly Meeting and often
served as their representative to the Chester Quarterly Meeting. At the local level, he was responsible for the help the Monthly
Meeting gave to widows; Nathan paid their rent, and on one occasion he disbursed money for a coffin, presumably when one of
the widows died. Nathan himself died in 1680 at the age of 38; at the time of their father's death, Nathan, the oldest son was 20
years old, and Alice the youngest daughter was five. In 1681, the year after her father's death, Esther the oldest daughter, married
Peter Dicks. In 1682, trouble in the Maddock house was bad enough to come to the attention of the Frandley Monthly Meeting. It
appears that Nathan and his brother-in-law, Peter, didn't get along with each other. After several months of investigation, the
Monthly Meeting decreed that Peter Dicks should leave the Maddock house, but he refused. By 1684, Nathan too, was married
and his wife and her sister were living in the house. Deborah, the second daughter was also married about this time. According to
a family story, Esther and Peter Dicks left for Pennsylvania in 1684.

|143||«b»GRIFFITH JOHN the EMIGRATE|
«/b»In or near Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, Wales, in the year 1683 was born to John & Elinor Philipps a son named Griffith. According to papers found in the West Chester Historical Society he was the 2nd of 6 issue:
Samuel, John, Robert, Sarah & Thomas (Merton). The Merle Huff Papers state that there was another son Daniel, but that is the only place this writer has ever seen that.
Nothing is known of his early life. In Haverfordwest there is a place called Hotel Mariner which was built in the 1650s-we stayed there. I had such a good feeling thinking that Griffith had most certainly seen this building & perhaps had even been in it when he was young.
There has been some speculation as to why the brothers left their home & migrated to the colonies. A relation told me that he had heard that Griffith was a widower & needed a change - why would Samuel & his wife come if that was the reason? Another told me that he heard that Griffith owed a tin mine in Wales & got into some sort of trouble & had to leave - the government then took over the tin mine. We checked this story
while in Wales & England & were told that there never were any tin mines in Wales - they were all in the Cornish section of England. There was tin factories or mills in Wales; Wales in the late 1600s was the scene of considerable religious activity. The Quaker leader, George Fox, visited there in 1657 & his preaching gained many converts. The movement caused controversy & religious oppression cause many of the Welsh converts to decide to emigrate to the colonies. This, I feel sure, was the reason our ancestor came to these shores.
Furthermore I feel that they used the old Welsh custom of name changing so as not to embarrass or cause undue trouble for their family they left behind.
Griffith, with his brother Samuel & Samuel's wife, Margaret took passage from Wales (probably from Haverfordwest as the tide used to come back that far & in those days it was quite a busy port) Dec., 1708.
Arrived in Philadelphia on 11 Feb., 1709. It has been reported that the trip was long & hard as they sailed through some bad weather that held them back, causing them to run out of food & fresh water. Upon landing the trio went to Goshen which was known as the Welsh Barony & seemed to have been a Quaker Settlement.
Nothing was recorded about Griffith until around 1714 when he & Ann Williams requested permission to marry at their Monthly Meeting. It should be noted here that Griffth was then 31 & Ann was 14! The customary investigations were made by the appointed members to be sure each was acceptable for this marriage.
The approval was given, however it was stressed that hopefully most young girls would not rush into wedlock at such an early age. On 23 July, 1714 Griffith & Ann were married. It must have been a happy, successful union for they were married 64 years & became the parents of 12 children.
Ann was b. 1700, the d/o Robert & Gwen Williams. Ann's father, Robert, who was known as "King of Goshen", was born in Wales in 1647. He married Gwen Cadawallader in the colonies 9 Apr., 1691. Robert died 1734. Gwen's parents were John & Sarah (Roberts) Cadawallader.
About 1715 under the auspices of David Lloyd, the Keeper of the Great Seal, Uwchlan Twp. was settled & Griffith was one of the first to purchase farmland there. He referred to his property as a plantation. In 1765 the valuation of Griffith John's property listed: 120 acres with buildings; 10 acres of woodland; 2 horses & 2 cows.
It has been written of Griffith that "he became a prominent minister of his sect. He stood well in his church & after his death a testimony relating to him was published by his Monthly Meeting. He lived in great simplicity & plainess & was a lover of peace & labored to promote good feeling among his neighbors. At the advanced age of 90 he was still a constant attendant at his Church, having been a minister there for over 70 years." He died 29 May, 1778, age 95. Ann died 13 Jan., 1782.
Perhaps I should mention here that this writer found in one place a story that the parents of our ancestor came over here to the colonies & settled in a different township from the brothers. This writer does not accept this story for nowhere has there been recorded that any member of our family was in that township. One must realize that the name of John was a fairly common one in Wales & so many who used the old Welsh custom of name changing came here as John folks. There was another Griffith John who had arrived here about the same time as our Griffith, settled in another township & also raised a large family. Many places I have found that others doing research had gotten the two families mixed up. Hence those parents were from another John family

|146||"REES JOHN WILLIAM of Llanglynin, yeoman, or Rees Joans or Jones, was one of the seventeen original purchasers of land" in Merion township "by deed of 1 April 1682 through Thomas & Jones, but he did not come over till in 1684 when the land on the river was partly cleared and planted and the 'first come overs', the parties of Dr. Jones and Hugh Roberts, were well housed on their purchases. He found the land (his deed being recorded at Philadelphia 21 4mo 1684) allotted to him the worst proportioned in the tract, it being a narrow strip, only about 66 feet, on the river extending the full length of the other lots, to the Charles Lloyd land, where it was only about 264 feet wide, in all. here 76 1/2 acres, and remainder in Goshen twp.|
'Rees Jones' as he was generally known, was a son of John ap William, a farmer in Llangelynin parish, Merioneth, who suffered considerable with the other Quakers in his neighborhood, 1661, &c. Rees came over with a large party of Welsh settlers in the ship Vine, of Liverpool, sailing from Dolyserre, near Dolgules, in Merionethshire, which is a maritime county, and arrived at Philadelphia on 17 7mo 1684. He was accompanied by his wife and three children.
His sister Margaret John William of Llangyllynin, widow, had preceded him, coming over in the party of Hugh Roberts, bringing a certificate of membership from the Quarterly Meeting near Dolgelly dated 27 5mo 1683, recorded at the Haverford or Radnor Monthly Meeting, As Margaret John she had patent 18 1mo 1717/8 for 400 acres of land on a branch of French Creek.
His brother, Evan John William, or Evan Jones also came over at that time, with his son, Robert Jones, (who resided at Gwynedd) and Evan John William died soon after, being buried in the ground of the Merion Meeting in 11mo 1683. He bequeathed some land in Goshen twp to his nephews, Richard and Evan Jones. Evan Jones, and Hannah his wife, and Mary Ellis, his mother in law and Gemima. her other daughter, brought certificate undated from the Meeting held at Tyddier y Gareg in Garthgunfawr near Dolegelle, Merioneth, to the Haverford Monthly Meeting, signed by Humphrey John, Robert and Rowland Owen, Owen Robert and Howell Lewis, and Hugh Rowland.
Rees Jones and his wife, Hannah, also brought the usual certificate of membership and removal, from the Quarterly Meeting near Dolgelly, dated 4 2mo 1684. Rees was described as 'of Llwyn Grevill, Clynn parish, Merioneth.
Before coming over he purchased by deed, dated 16 July 1684, the original right of Thomas ap Richard, or Prichard, of Nant Lleidiog to his share 156 1/4 acres of the Thomas & Jones tract. The 76 1/2 acres of which that lay in Merion adjoined the back part of Rees's land, and this gave him 153 acres in Merion. The present settlement of Merion. or Merion Station on Pensylvania Railroad, is on his land, and Rees's dwelling house was near it. By deed of 8 4mo. 1694, he sold his 76 1/2 acres on the river end, or his original purchase, to his brother in law, Cadwalader Morgan, whose land adjoined.
Rees Jones died 26 11mo. 1697/8, and was buried at the Merion Meeting House. His will which he signed with his mark, dated 24 11mo 1697/8, witnessed by Griffith John and Abel Thomas, was proved at Philadelphia, 4 March 1702/3. He named his sons Richard Evan and John; and overseers: Cadwalader Morgan, Abel Thomas, Edward Jones, Griffith John, and John Roberts.
He married, about 1678, Hannah Richards or Price, born in 1656, sister to Jane, wife of Cadwalader Morgan, of Merion, and to Edward Price, who came to Pensylvania before 1685-6, and daughter of Richard Gryffyth ap Rhys, or Prees, and Price, of Llanvawr or Lanfor parish in Merioneth, a member of the Friends Penylln Monthly Meeting, near Bala, whose will dated 26 11mo 1685, was filed at St Asaph registry in 1686. His will describes him as of Glanlloidiogin. Llanfor parish. Witnesses were Edward Nicholas, Thomas ap Robert, Lowry v Thomas, Rees Evans, and Cadwalader Ellis. To Edward Prees, alias Price (of Merion), eldest son; (after he came over here he sent to Wales for 'some intelligence of his Pedigree' which he received about 1700, and is extant); Jane, eldest daughter, wife of Cadwalader Morgan; daughter Hannah, wife of Rees John William; grandchildren William John, and Catherine John, children of John William; and son Thomas ap Richard, the executor, who received all of the estate of his father. Thomas renounced the trust, when the Court gave the administration to Edward Nicholas, of Cynlas.
After Rees's death, Hannah, his relict, married secondly, at the Merion Meeting, on 22 2mo 1703, Ellis David, of Goshen twp, a widower, who was buried sp 17 lmo 1720, and married, thirdly, 14, l mo 1722, Thomas Evans of Gwynedd twp. " (end of long quote from Browning)
Note: There is also a considerable account of Rees John William and his children in the Lloyd Manuscripts, (Welsh Records from the Collections of Howard Williams Lloyd, New Era Publishing, Lancaster, PA, ), starting on page 165. Also, Thomas Allen Glenn has a Chapter on Rees John William, pps 73-86. in Merion in the Welsh Tract, which is likely the source for much of what Browning wrote. Furthermore, Thomas Allen Glenn, has much to say about the ancestry of Hannah Price, the wife of Rees John William on pages 92-97 of the same book.
Rees Jones, had by his wife, Hannah Price, who was of Royal Descent, the following issue, besides Margaret, b. 20. 6. 1697, Edward, and Catharine, who d. unmarried.
1. Richard Jones, born about 1679. He came over with his parents, and according to the records, filed with the Merion Preparative Meeting, of which he was a member an account of their ancestry, and life in the Old Country, on 2 12 mo. 1704-5. He inherited from his father the home-farm of about 100 acres, which he increased to 156 1/4 acres, and with some land he owned in Goshen, he had 293 3/4 acres altogether, in 1703. By deed of 8 Nov. 1720, he bought of John Roberts (the nephew of Thomas Lloyd, of Llangower, own of the original purchasers through Thomas & Jones), 39 1/2 acres, adjoining his Merion land.
By deed, dated 26 June 1729, Richard Jones conveyed all of his Merion land, then 156 1/4 acres, to Hugh Evans and removed to his land in Goshen twp, which he had increased by purchase. He and his brother Evan Jones bought there a tract of 153 1/ 4 acres, which on resurvey, was 178 acres. He died, aged 92 years, in Goshen twp on 16 7mo 1771, having been twice married.

THE ADAMS FAMILY
By John R. Adams, Sr.
The earliest information that is known at this time about the
Adams Family dates back to Virginia in the late 1700's.
Benjamin Adams of Southampton Co., Va. died about 1795. His
will was dated October 30, 1794 and probated March 12, 1795.
His wife was named Margaret and her maiden name is unknown at
The children listed in the will were as follows: daughter
Sally Ivey, wife of Adam Ivey; daughter Priscilla Prince,
wife of Joseph Prince; daughter Nancy; son Arthur; daughter
Betsy, (Elizabeth) wife of Jordan Pate; Charlotte, wife of
Herbert Pate; granddaughter Sally Adams; and wife Margaret.
Arthur Adams was the next in our Adams Family line. He
married Elizabeth Reese, daughter of Randolph and Sarah
"Sally" Harris Reese, in Southampton Co., Va. August 27,
They were the parents of Benjamin Adams, born February 16,
1803, in Virginia; Sarah Adams, married Wike Ivey; Charity
Adams, married Jesse B. Farr (of Upson County, Ga.); and an
unknown daughter who married Simeon Reese.
They moved to Columbia Co., Ga. about 1808 and Arthur Adams
died there in January, 1822.
Benjamin Adams is the next Adams in our family line and his
family and his mother Elizabeth Reese Adams moved to Warren
Co., Ga. after the death of Arthur Adams. His father's
sister, Charlotte Adams Pate, and her husband Herbert Pate
were living in Warren Co., Ga. at that time.
Benjamin Adams married Emily Ivey in Warren Co., Ga. December
18, 1823. She was the daughter of Dinkins and Lydia Hodgins
Ivey. Lydia Hodgin(s) Ivey was a Quaker and the daughter of
John and Mary Vernon Hodgin(s) both Quakers and original
settlers of Wrightsborough, Ga. John Hodgin(s) land grant was
dated February 2, 1769.
Benjamin and Emily Ivey Adams moved to Upson County, Georgia
about 1838 and settled south of Thomaston. Their land was
located west of U. S. 19 south of Thomaston past Tobler
Creek. Tobler Creek ran through their land. Benjamin Adams
owned Land Lots 160, 161, 169 and 50 acres of lot 192. At one
time he owned lot 163 and he sold it to Davis Dawson. All
these lots are in the 16th District of Upson Co., Ga. The
south west corner of Lot 163 is where my dad, Elder John
Bentley Adams, said that Uncle Joseph Lee Adams told him the
Benjamin Adams family cemetery is located. Benjamin and Emily
Ivey Adams and three of their children are believed to be
buried in this cemetery as well as his mother Elizabeth Reese
The children of Benjamin and Emily Ivey Adams were: (1)
Arthur Adams born October 9, 1824. He married first Unicey C.
Snipes and second to her sister Antoinette Snipes. Jewell
Adams Adams' husband Luke Adams was a descendent of this
family. (2) Amanda Adams born December 3, 1826. She married
Thomas Jefferson Norman and they settled in Bell Co., Texas.
(3) Dinkins Adams born January 20, 1828. He married Georgia

Benjamin Ivey Adams born April 15, 1829. He became a doctor
and settled in Alabama. He died October 6, 1885 and is buried
at Cleburne Co., Ala. I located him this year and have not
researched his family. (5) William David Adams born September
10, 1830. He married Samantha Jane McKindley and they settled
in Bell Co., Texas. (6) Elizabeth Adams born January 12,
1832. She married Francis Marion McKenney. She died in Taylor

of seven known children including two sets of twins. She died
February 21, 1860 after the birth of her second set of twins.
Francis M. McKenney moved to Lee Co., Ga. (7) Curtis Albert
Adams born August 15, 1833. He married Mary Elizabeth Jane
Rivier. Curtis Albert Adams was killed July 9, 1864 in The
War Between The States. His wife and children settled in
Thomaston. (8) Drucilla Margaret Adams born May 3, 1836. She
died November 15, 1844 and is believed to be buried in the
Benjamin Adams Family Cemetery. (9) Mary Ann Adams born
February 10, 1839. She married James M. Taylor and they
probably settled in Alabama. (10) Emily Adams born March 15,
1841. She died October 28, 1847 and is believed to be buried
in the Benjamin Adams Family Cemetery. (11) Joseph Randall
Adams born January 25, 1843. He married Mary Elizabeth
Caldwell and their family is the subject of this cookbook.
(12) Lillian Miranda Adams born March 8, 1845. She married
Doctor Joseph C. Chatham and they are believed to have
settled in Alabama. (13) Elline Annet Manervia Adams born
March 14, 1847. She married Andrew D. McComb and they are
buried in Buena Vista, Ga. Andrew McComb married Martha F.
"Mattie" Adams, daughter of Joseph Randall and Mary Elizabeth
Caldwell Adams, as his second wife. (14) Eveline J. Adams
born abt. 1849. She died September 23, 1851 and is probably
buried in the Benjamin Adams Family Cemetery. (15) Davis P.
Adams born abt. 1854. He lived with his sister, Mary Ann
Adams Taylor after the death of his parents. (16) Eldora
Adams born abt 1855. She was listed in the house of her
brother-in-law Francis Marion McKenney in Terrell Co., Ga. in
Benjamin and Emily Ivey Adams attended Good Hope Primitive
Baptist Church in Upson County, Ga. They both died in March
of 1863 and the inventory of their estate gives us a picture
of how they lived. They owned 14 slaves at the time of their
death and they were valued at $32,623.00 and 656 acres of
land valued at $10,075.00. Some of the items sold at the sale
of their estate: 25 Sheep, 124 hogs, 20 cows, 1 bull, 3
mules, 1 horse, 1 colt, 2 buggies, 1 saddle, 1 side-saddle, 9
bee gums, sewing machine, spinning wheel, blacksmith tools,
set of china, 5 beds (with 16 children they had to sleep more
than one to the bed), 200 lbs. of bacon, 168 lbs. lard, 549
bushels of corn, 52 bushels of wheat, 13 bushels of barley,
27 lbs. of wool, 8 bales of cotton, 2 ovens, one large oven,
18 chairs and 1 table. Joseph Randall Adams was away at War
when his parents died in March of 1863. He was in the Battle
of Stones River, Tennessee on December 31, 1862 through
January 2, 1863. By February 9, 1863 Joseph and Co. B, 2nd.
Georgia Sharpshooters were in Chattanooga, Tenn. His service
record does not state whether he went home when his parents
died. Joseph Adams was wounded September 20, 1863 in the
battle of Chickamauga, Tenn. He probably went home at that
time because there is no record of him going to a hospital.
Joseph Randall Adams married Mary Elizabeth Caldwell on
November 5, 1863. He was at home on November 24, 1863 and he
purchased 10 hogs for $1813.00. He purchased a Negro girl
named Susan for $2860.00 at the estate sale of his fathers
property on December 1, 1863.
We researched for years for Joseph Randall Adams and Mary
Elizabeth Caldwell Adams' marriage record. This year Ruth
Hays Cooper gave me some items from Aunt Lola Adams Waters'
family and a copy of their marriage certificate was among the
items. The certificate is very large and in very bad
condition. The following information: Mr. J. R. Adams of
Upson County, Georgia and Miss M. E. Caldwell of Taylor
County, Georgia were by me united in marriage according to
the ordinance of God and the laws of the State of Georgia at
John Caldwell's house on the 5th of November AD 1863. Signed
Elder Samuel Bentley. Witnesses P. C. Caldwell and Max (?)
Smith. (P. C. Caldwell was Pleasant Creed Caldwell brother of
Mary Elizabeth Caldwell) There were pictures of Joseph and
Mary Adams in the top corners. (Pictures taken in later life)
