VALENTINE PEGG, born April 10, 1744, Maryland; died Nov. 24, 1828 in Whitewater, Wayne Co., IN.
VALENTINE, during 1770, was living in Mispillion Hundred, Kent County, Delaware. He migrated to Guilford County, NC as part of the Nicholite sect from the Maryland/Delaware border area and was one of the original Nicolite settlers in the Guilford County area.
-- VALENTINE married his first wife, MARY STAFFORD, b: ca. 1748, Sussex Co., DE. She was the daughter of Henry & Elizabeth Stafford. MARY and VALENTINE were married prior to May, 1776. Source of marriage date: MARY's father, Henry Stafford II, stated in his will, dated May 21, 1776, that "I also give to my daughter Mary Pegg: the sum of one shilling - Sterling". Henry's gift to "Mary Pegg" indicates that Mary had married Valentine Pegg prior to 1776.
--VALENTINE & MARY (Stafford) are believed to have had three daughters: Elizabeth, born Feb.7, 1777, possibly in Deep River, Guilford County, NC ( who married Daniel Nicholson on May 11, 1801, Rowan Co., NC); Mary Jr., born January 25, 1788 in Deep River, Guilford County, NC and Lydia, born March 28, 1790 in Deep River, Guilford County, NC.
-- MARY Sr. died sometime in 1790(probably shortly after the birth on March 28, 17 of her third daughter, Lydia ) in Deep River, Guilford Co., N.C. MARY Sr. and VALENTINE were married prior to May, 1776.
-- After the death of his first wife, (Mary Stafford) in 1790, VALENTINE married his second wife, the widow Mary Cook, whose maiden surname was "Mills". Source: EQC - Deep River MM, Guilford, NC ( page # 833), that VALENTINE married a MARY COOK on December 4, 1806.
---- VALENTINE bought land on the East Fork of Deep River, Guilford County, NC in 1784.
-- In 1778, VALENTINE was among those who signed "The Nicolite Petition" addressed to the NC General Assembly.
-- As the Nicholites disintegrated, VALENTINE requested membership in a Quaker meeting as did most other Nicholites. According to the Encyclopedia of Quaker Genealogy (EQC), VALENTINE was "received on request" by Deep River on May 6, 1805. His daughter, LYDIA was " received on request" by Deep River on June 3, 1805. Was LYDIA another daughter of VALENTINE and MARY STAFFORD or was she one of VALENTINE's known daughters, i.e., ELIZABETH or MARY, who was using the name "LYDIA"? Source: Encyclopedia of Quaker Genealogy (EQC) - Deep River MM, Guilford, NC ( page # 833).
--VALENTINE and "family" were granted a "certificate" to White Water MM, Indiana on August 8, 1812. MARY and LYDIA were granted a "certificate" to Whitewate MM, Indiana shortly thereafter on September 7, 1812.. In view of the fact that the EQC also states that VALENTINE's daughter MARY -- his daughter by MARY STAFFORD -- had married RICHARD MENDENHALL earlier the same year in February, it is believed the "MARY" who was granted certificate to Whitewater MM, Indiana on September 7, 1812, was apparently VALENTINE's second wife, Mary Mills/Cook. VALENTINE and Mary Mills/Cook migrated to the Whitewater MM, Wayne Co., IN, Dec. 31, 1812.
-- VALENTINE had a 3rd. wife, Sarah (Small) Griffin who he had married in Wayne Co., IN. April 4, 1821. Sarah died in 1853, in her 80th year.
-- VALENTINE died on Nov. 24, 1828. He is buried at the Old Friends Burying Ground, Whitewater, Wayne Co, IN.
