Generation No. 2

 

2.  THOMAS JR.2 BENTLEY (THOMAS SR.1) was born 1729 in North Carolina, and died Aft. 1820 in North Carolina.  He married HANNAH THOMAS 1746.  She was born 1725, and died 1788.

 

Notes for THOMAS JR. BENTLEY:

 The earliest record of Thomas Bentley, an early settler of Rowan (now Davie) County,

 North Carolina is found in the 1768 Rowan County, North Carolina List of Taxables of

 Morgan Bryan's District. Here he and his son, Benjamin, are listed separately at one poll

 each. Thomas was born about 1725. In the 1778 Rowan County Tax List he is listed as

 "Thomas Bentley junr" indicating that his father may have been named Thomas Bentley.

 According to family tradition these Bentleys or their ancestor had migrated to North

 Carolina from Virginia, but it is not known where Thomas Jr. was born.

 

 On 17 December 1769 Thomas wrote a note that his son, Benjamin, might sign the bond

 for his daughter, Mary, to marry Aaron Freeman. Benjamin did sign the bond for his sister

 to marry, along with James Freeman. In Rowan County Court, 9 August 1771 Thomas

 Bentley registered his livestock brand as a "crop and a hole in the right ear and a crop in

 the left ear."

 

 Although Thomas' political affiliation is unknown, it is found that on November 4, 1777 he

 and others, including neighbors, Wm. Frohock and Anthony Peeler, appeared in Rowan

 County Court and swore an Oath of Fidelity to the State of North Carolina.

 

 By 1783 Thomas and his family began moving from Rowan County. Thomas, his wife

 Hannah, and some of the children moved to Lincoln County, North Carolina. His son,

 Benjamin, sold the land he owned in Rowan and moved to Cedar Run - South Yadkin

 River area of Iredell (now Alexander) County while the other son, Daniel, moved to

 Lincoln County, North Carolina. Daniel Bentley married Nancy Lewis by bond in Rowan

 County North Carolina February 8, 1782. As he and his parents were moving to Lincoln

 County, it appears he could not bear to leave his sweetheart behind.

 

 On January 1, 1783 Thomas Bentley bought 100 acres for 30 pounds on both sides of

 Indian Creek in Lincoln County from Robert Armstrong and Hugh Beaty, executors of

 Francis Beaty. On this same day, Thomas also bought 120 acres from Thomas Wilsh

 (Welch), planter, for 20 pounds. This land also lay on both sides of Indian Creek.

 

 By 1789 Thomas may have begun to experience poor health as on the fourth of May that

 year he deeded to his wife, Hannah for the natural love and affection "which I bear & have

 unto Hannah Bentley, my beloved wife" all his goods, chattels, leases, plate jewels,

 working tools and one negro man named Saul.


 In the Lincoln County census, Hannah was listed as the head of household with three other

 females in her house, which are probably the younger daughters which are not yet married.

 Thus it seems that Thomas died between the dates of May 4, 1789 and the census of

 1790. Hannah sold to her "daughter," Margaret Bentley, all her goods, chattels, and

 plantation for "natural love and affection" on April 1, 1793. Margaret Bentley married by

 bond in Lincoln County on September 25, 1794 to William Younce (Yonts). Christian

 Eaker was the bondsman for the marriage.

 

 December 1780, he was considered as a "Patriot" by selling corn at a price of 75 cents

 per bushel.

 

 Residence: 1768, Shown on Rowan County tax list as a planter

Notes for BENJAMIN BENTLEY:

 Benjamin Bentley, in 1795, made a trip to Lincoln County from Iredell County to help his

 brother, Daniel, settle their father's estate. On April 17, 1795 they sold to Jacob Bullinger

 (Bollinger) the two tracts of land that Thomas had bought in 1783. However, 25 acres

 were withheld from the 120 acre tract for the use of Hannah Bentley "widow and relict of

 Thomas Bentley" (Lincoln County Deed Book 17 page 211). It is this deed that

 establishes the fact that Benjamin and Daniel are the sons of Thomas Bentley as the deed

 reads that Thomas Bentley died intestate and by regular course of law (the land)

 descended to Daniel and Benjamin Bentley "the sons and their heirs of the said Thomas,

 dec'd." On September 1, 1795 Hannah and Daniel sold to George Savage and Catherine

 Bolinger the plantation on which Hannah lived. They probably done so Daniel and his

 family could migrate to Kentucky, as he did so by 1800. Hannah was not listed in the

 1800 Lincoln County Census, so it thought that she also went with Daniel to Kentucky,


  where he has the distinction of being the "first Bentley in Eastern Kentucky."

 

 On July 8, 1795 Hannah Bentley, as administrix of her husband's estate, wrote to the court

 that Thomas Bentley, in his lifetime, had at differnet times given parts of his property to his

 children to provide for and advance them and also before his death had made a deed of

 appointment for the purpose of suporting Hannah in the event that she survived him. This

 divided among the children. She also knew of no debts due from the estate. Hannah then

 proceded to name the articles that had been deeded to her, consisting of livestock,

 household articles, a negro boy named Saul, one big Bible, and other farm and clothing

 items. She signed her mark on the document.

 According to family tradition Benjamin's family ancestry came from Virginia to settle in

 North Carolina. Benjamin Bentley, along with his parents, brother, and sisters lived in old

 Rowan (now Davie) County on Bear Creek, a few miles south of Mocksville. In the 1768

 Rowan County tax list of Morgan Bryan is found that Benjamin Bentley and Thomas

 Bentley are included at one poll each. Benjamin was most likely married at this time as he

 was living separately from his father.

 

 Benjamin was a "wheel-deeler" when it came to purchasing land. Early in life he amassed

 enough property and land (over 1,500 acres) to be considered part of the planter class of

 society. He was also a slave owner as was his father. On June 30, 1778 Benjamin entered

 a claim for 640 acres of land on Bear Creek in Rowan County. The state of North

 Carolina on March 21, 1780 granted him this land by Grant No. 97. It sold for fifty

 shillings every 100 acres and joined the lands of William Frohock, Anthony Peeler,

 Thomas Bentley, and Abraham Welty.

 

 The Bentley house still stands in this area in 1985 a few miles south of the town of

 Mocksville on an unpaved road just of Hwy. 601. Although later land owners added onto

 the house, the originial portion is a two-story log structure which consists of two 20 X 20

 foot square rooms downstairs separated by a 10 foot wide entrance way. The upstairs

 floor space was the same. This location was one of the first known communities in Davie

 County and was named "Bentley."

 

 Located behind the main house was a summer house where the children slept in the

 summer as it was too hot to sleep upstairs in the main house. The 1778 tax list of Capt.

 Lyon's district in Rowan County shows Benjamin's value to be 336 pounds and that of his

 father, "Thomas Bentley, junr." to be 609 pounds. Benjamin also served as a constable in

 Rowan County from Feb 16, 1771 to Feb 1772.

 

 On June 29, 1778, NC Grant No. 329 was made to Benjamin Bentley, assignee of Uriah

 Davis, for land lying at the head of the South Yadkin River in Rowan County joining

 Soloman Davis. Also on November 13, 1778 the state by Grant No. 1375 granted  Benjamin 100 acres  on the North Fork of Rocky Creek, beginning at the mouth of the big

 branch above the Tumbling Shoals in "Rowan" County. Benjamin transferred this land to

 George Hinds (Hines). Benjamin Bentley evidently moved his family to Iredell (now

 Alexander) County about 1784 as this is when he began selling his land on Bear Creek.

 He had the year before on October 10, 1783 received Grant No. 457 for 150 acres as a

 branch of the South Yadkin River near the "Cedar Knob" in Rowan County, about five

 miles north of Taylorsville. As Iredell was formed in 1788, it is here that Benjamin begins

 to appear in the court records. At the first court session of the newly formed county,

 Benjamin Bentley, Adam Hall, and others were appointed a jury to lay out the Cove Gap

 Road.

 

 While Benjamin moved his family to Iredell County, his father and mother, Thomas and

 Hannah Bentley, moved the rest of their family to Linclon County about 1783.

                                                  The Tucker Heirloom Grapevine Story

 

This story doesn't relate directly to our family but is a nice story.  As recalled by Janet Tucker in 1997 .

 

A roof repairman was working on shingles at the residence of John Tucker's home in the Fort Hill area of

Dalton, Georgia. He slipped and fell from the roof, slightly injuring himself and the Tucker's took him to a

Doctor and later to his home. The recovery was uneventful. Upon being able to work again, the roofer felt a need to do something to express his appreciation for the care he had received. He purchased and planted a grapevine on John Tucker's property. Eventually, the Tuckers built a new home on the old Chatsworth Highway near the present location of Stafford's Food Lane. Before moving into the new home, a cutting was taken from the grapevine and rooted. This rooted cutting was taken to Tucker's new home. It was planted about twenty feet off and to the right of the rear door step and ran North to South. Johnny has fond memories of the Tucker Grapevine and the grape jelly that it produced each fall from his early years. The warm summer evenings with the heavy air permeated by the rich bouquet flowing from the grapevine. The grapevine's flavor was more of a muscadine quality rather than that of a concord grape but the skins were not as tough as that of a muscadine. As the grape ripened from green to green-amber to amber-grape, the bouquet fragrance would over power the area. Upon the death of John Tucker, marriage of Janet to Marvin Shields, and death of Mossie Tucker, the Shield family decided to sell the Tucker home and build a new residence in Murray County. A location was chosen off Green Road near the Central Community and the home construction began. Soon, the new home was ready to be occupied. During the move-planning discussion, a decision was made to root a cutting from the grapevine and take it to Murray County. Marvin undertook this task and when the cutting was ready, planted it at the new residence. He prepared the vine to run North to South, also. When Johnny and Faye purchased their new home in the Boynton area of Catoosa County, they decided to request a rooted cutting from the Tucker Grapevine. Marvin prepared this cutting in the Spring of 1983 and it became ready to go to the new location that same Fall. While the Tucker Grapevine cutting was in the

rooting process, Johnny made the trip to Chatsworth to consult with Olin Cole (Dept of Agriculture) about


different methods of planting and training fruit-bearing vines. A quantity of literature and advice rode back home with Johnny. After much study, the chosen method was initiated and materials accumulated: Three treated landscape timbers were installed in holes dug 30-inches deep. The timbers were placed fifteen feet apart and in a line running East and West which should allow more solar energy to bathe the grapevine as 'ole Sol followed its daily orb. Three eye-screws were positioned on the inside of the timbers facing one another. The screws were located 24-inches off the ground then 20-inches apart. Plastic covered steel cable was run between the eyes so that when finished, there would be three lines, thirty foot in length. A prepared "$100.00" hole was dug -- "all orchardologists know the importance of a $100.00 hole!" -- 12-inches from the center landscape timber. All was ready and the trip for the vine was commenced. The Tucker Grapevine (No.3) was transported from Murray County to Catoosa County with much pomp and ceremony, but without the escort of Catoosa County Deputies, who refused to do so. During the trip the old story was related to the new cutting so that its heritage and genealogy would be thoroughly ingrained in all of the DNA plant particles. Upon arrival at its new residence, the vine was escorted to the prepared hole and implanted at Longitude 085w11 and Latitude 34n55. Over the years, as the vine grew, it was trained so that there would be two arms on each side, spaced 20-inches apart and fifteen feet long. Many were interested in the Tucker Grapevine Story and coveted rooted cuttings for their very own personal property. There is a vine on a farm in Whitwell, Tennessee, another in an orchard in Apison, Tennessee, and still others over Catoosa, Murray and Whitfield counties. Today, May 1, 1997, the Tucker Heirloom Grapevine spans sixty-five years of its own genealogy. Appointments are required to observe this truly awesome vine in person. Presently, a waiting list spanning several months is necessary to be overcome. As far as personal cuttings from the vine...who knows? Are you

really worthy to possess such a terrestrial dropping?
