Descendants of John Jessee (Founding Father)

Notes


2. Rebecca Jessee

Traditionally Rebecca has been noted and recorded as a twin sisterofElizabeth, but extrapolation of her age based on Census recordsasinterpreted by Tom and Shirley Rudder, would indicate at least 10yearsdifference in their ages, with Rebecca born between 1794 and1804. Thesource of this specific birthdate is unknown.

Source: Jack Hockett; Kathryn B. Greever, and Imogene BurkeVerbalprovided me their manuscript on The Genealogy of the BurkFamily, to bepublished 1999. Chapter IV, Descendants of Fleming Burk,Sr., providesexhaustive information on more than 1000 descendants ofWilliam Burk andRebecca Jessee. This well researched and documentedwork is asignificant resource for Burk(e) and Jessee Family genealogy.

Former Burk(e) family geneology has alleged that William BurkmarriedRebecca Vermillion. There is the following evidence that hemarriedRebecca Jessee. "BURK, William; 28 Oct. 1820; Rebecca, heir andlegateeof John Jessee Sr. (Russell Co. Deedbook 6, pg. 409)

You have notes from Iris Hall and Faynola Osborne that Dicy belongstoArcher Jessee & Nancy Browning. I have to agree with them. Ibelievethey are correct. Check out the names of George Candler & DicyJessee'schildren. You will see that George Candler and Dicy Jesseenamed two ofthe children John & Dorothy after Georges parents namesand two of themArcher and Nancy B. after Dicy's parents names. Alsonote that none oftheir children were named David or Catherine. I'dthink, that if in factDavid & Catherine were Dicy's parents, that itwould be awful strange toname your children after other ancestors &relatives and not have anynamed after their grandparents on theirmothers side.

In 1828, George Lea Jessee bought the original John Jessee andFrankieLea farm from the estate of his father, John Jessee, Sr. (RC DB8-90).He served Russell Co. as surveyor of the road from Copper RidgetoBrownings Sawmill; as constable, Western District; as justice ofthepeace; and as a School Commissioner 4th District. In 1830, hewasrecommended as Captain of the 72nd Regiment of Militia.

George and Elizabeth were members of the Castlewood Baptist Churchandare buried in unmarked graves in the Jessee Cemetary, along withhisparents on the original John Jessee farm, later owned by E. K.Counts.

Tom suggests that since George L. Jessee (1798-1882) signed hiswillGeorge L. Jessee Sr., this implies their is a George L. JesseeJr., whomay be his son. There is confusion, and perhaps error, aboutwho is thefather of George L. Jessee, Jr., b. 1827 (RIN 479), who isrecorded asthe son of David Jessee. There is no other evidence thatthis George LeaJessee, Sr. had a son George L.
Jr, born in 1827, most notabley this is not recorded in theauthoritivesource of information on this family, "John Counts of GladeHollow," by.E. J. Sutherland. I speculate that he may have used thetitle Sr. todifferentiate himself from four other George L. Jessees inRussell Co.,all born after 1840, a grandson, nephews, andgrand-nephews. At thistime the use of "Senior and Junior" did notnecessarily mean "father andson", but rather "elder and younger."

49. George Lea Jessee Jr.

Problem: This is a strong controversy, that there even exists asonGeorge L. Jessee, Jr., son of George L. Jessee, Sr. In materialsprovidedby Tom Rudder, Carmichael, CA (May 1997)Tom suggests thatsince George L.Jessee (1798-1882) signed his will George L. JesseeSr., this impliestheir is a George L. Jessee Jr., who may be his son.There is confusion,and perhaps error, about who is the father ofGeorge L. Jessee, Jr., b.1827 (RIN 479), who is recorded as the son ofDavid Jessee. The marriageand family information I have recorded forGeorge L. Jessee, RIN 479, maybe applicable to this George L. Jessee.However, there is no otherevidence that this George Lea Jessee, Sr.had a son George L. Jr, bornin 1827, most notabley this is notrecorded in the authoritive source ofinformation on this family, "JohnCounts of Glade Hollow," by. E. J.Sutherland.

I speculate that George L. Jessee, Sr. may have used the title Sr. inhiswill to differentiate himself from four other George L. JesseesinRussell Co., all born after 1840, a grandson, nephews, andgrand-nephews.At this time the use of "Senior and Junior" did notnecessarily mean"father and son", but rather "elder and younger."

I was sorting through some information we picked up in Richmond thelasttime we were there. This relates to Muster Rolls of the VirginiaMilitiain the War of 1812 printed in 1851.
1. “ Pay Roll of Captain William L. Montague’s Company, of theOneHundred and Ninth Regiment of Virginia Militia, Middlesex County,in theService of the United States, at several places on theRappahannockRiver, commanded by Lieutenant Colonel Elliot Muse, fromthe 26th ofApril to the 26th of December 1814." The following Jesseeswere listed;William Jesse, Lieutenant served 2 months, and JohnJessee, Privatehaving served 15 days.
2. “Pay Roll of Captain Lewis Lee’s Company, attached to the OneHundredand Ninth Regiment of Virginia Militia, in the Service of theUnitedStates, commanded by Colonel Elliott Muse, from the 9th Octoberto the12th December 1814." John Jesse was listed as a Private havingserved 15days.
I don’t remember seeing anything in the Jessee notes about WilliamorJohn Jessee, Jr. serving in the War of 1812. I know that JohnJessee Jr.Was made a Captain in the Virginia Militia in September of1814 inRussell Co. Notice that the dates of the pay rolls overlap soJohnpossibly only served one 15 day term.

I havefound Wilburnliving with his parents, James & Jane Minton in the 1870Russell Co.census and Wilburn and Sally living in the 1900 - 1920Scott Co. censuseslisted as Wilburn (or William) & Sally Minton, so Iassume the true nameis Minton instead of Milton.

Mr. Stephan Banner
Dear friend, having leasure (sic) time afforded me to day I thoughtIwould employ it in writing you a letter. I have nothing ofimportance towrite more than I am well & all the Castlewoods boys thatis here exceptJames Cook. He is and has bin (sic) sick for some time& don't improveany. The doctor says he has the euralia (sic). I amuneasy about him Isuppose. Peter Wampler has got home by this time.He doubtless has giveyou all the ware (sic) nuse (sic) from thisportion of the army & nothinghas transpired since he left here. Weare still encamped neare (sic)Winchester & we thought we would remainhere until we entered upon ourSpring campaign but I heare (sic) ittalked to day that we will leavehere in a day or two for ManassasJunction & probably to East Tennessee.This is only reported. I don'tknow how true it is but I would not besurprised if it isn't true. Wehave just got our tent fited (sic) up sowe can be comfortable. Wehave built a chimney to it & have got a goodstraw bead (sic) & livingfine. We have plenty to eat, a great many outof our Regt arereinlistin (sic) for two years. They get a bounty offifty dollars & afurlough for thirty days to stay at home & a reasonabletime to go &come in & transportation furnished them there & back. Thereis so manyagoing (sic) home on these grounds that it will leave our armyquiet(sic) small. The spirit of re-enlisting is up high among thesolgiers(sic) & I am of the opinion that the larger portion of thevolunteersnow in the field will re-inlist. The President has made arequisitionon Virginia for her quota of troops which is sixty eightthousand eighthundred & all the volunteers now in the field who fail tore-inlistwill be subject to a draft with the Malitia (sic) before theyhave thechance to go home. There is some thirty six thousand of theabovenamed number will have to be raised out of the Malitia (sic)providedall the troops now in the field reinlist. So it will be workdraftin(sic) Malitia (sic) in a few days for I expect the last manhasvolunteered who intend to from the Malitia (sic) & Virginia quotawillhave to be raised by a draft. It appears like the yankes (sic)are acoming in upon us from ever direction & will smash us up whither(sic) orno. The late nuse (sic) from the south show that they havebin (sic)very successful on the cost (sic). They have taken FortHenry & areplaying the devil with us in that portion of theconfederate states.They have all so taken Ronoke (sic) Islan (sic) &Wise's whole commandexcept some twenty five & killing Capt O JenningsWise. He was a bravesolgier (sic) and in him the south loses one ofher nobles (sic) sons.Our late reverses & disasters look verydisheartening at this time but Ihope these darke (sic) clouds willsoon disperce & that a brilliantvictory will soon be achieved fromwhere we have met with these reversesby the noble sones (sic) of thesouth & that we may yet be successful inestablishing our independencefrom under the tyrannical government of oldAbe Lincoln, from presentindications & the movements of the Northernarmy there will be somehard fighting in a short time. I would like tocome home and see youall but there is no chance to come unless Ireinlist and that I don'tthink I will do. I think I will run the riskof a draft. We havevarious rumors here from Gen Marshal's army. Somesay they arefauling (sic) back to Abingdon & the salt workes (sic) &leave ourcounty to the mercy of the Yankeys (sic). If they do this itwill befarewell to old Russell. They will plunder it, destroy & burneverything before them. I wish you would take the trouble to write tome &give me a true statement of affairs in that portion of the county.Ihave wrote about all I know. Give my respects to all the family.Iwould like to see you all but the Lord only know when I ever willbepermitted to see you, probably never. I understand that Jacksoniscoming to see us. If he comes I would be glad to see you come withhim.A.M. Lee & all the boys send their love & respects to you &family.Write soon direct to Winchester, Virginia.

While doing some other research I got into the lineage postedatwww.jessee.org and discovered yet another William Stone m:Anastasia"Tacy" Musick! Tacy must have had quite a penchant forWilliam Stones;this would have made the third linked to her. Alas, Ican help with thisWilliam. I personally know several descendentsthrough this line andhave been trying to match the progenitor,Jeremiah, with my Stones, to noavail so far. However, during thisresearch I acquired birthcertificates for the brother of BenjaminFranklin, George Washington,Stone, showing their parents. They areWilliam Henry Stone and Mary JaneStanley. William Henry is the son ofJohn Jessee Stone and RebeccaSargent.
I'm positive about the Marriage of William Henry Stone and MaryJaneStanley. The four children I have for them are George WashingtonStoneb:20 Oct 1854, Benjamin Franklin Stone, Rebecca Stone and MatildaStone.I don't have a spouse for William H, the son of William andFrancesJessee Stone.
Finding Tacy Musick's spouse has been another matter. I have her,thedaughter of John Wesley Music(k) and Isabelle Harris, married totheoldest son of Ezekiel Stone and Edy Duncan, Charles William Stone.Thisis from a book entitled "Stone Connections" which I don'tpossess.Another internet link has Asia Tacy Minnix, daughter ofCharles Meenach(Minix) Jr and Fanny Richmond married William Stoneb:1803, son ofCuthbert Stone and Sarah Clarinda Arnett . Regardless,all instances ofTacy seems to be born around the 1800-1804 area, a bitold for either ofthe two William H Stones. I have no proof on thislineage and wouldappreciate any information available.
I have amassed quite a bit of lineage in this area and would be most
interested in subjected that lineage to the critique of themasses,should anyone be interested.

9. John Jessee Jr.

John Jessee Jr. lived in Reeds Valley on the same place that hissonJoseph, and grandson Ephraim Kiser would live. He is buried intheJessee Family graveyard near their home. His birth is deduced fromhisyounger brother and second son, Archer Jessee's Bible, which listArchersbirth as 1776.

Source: Rev. Cecil Jessee (PO Box 158, Port Clinton, OH 43452)providesthis testimony in a letter dated 23 June 1998. "My daughterand Ivisited several Jessee cemeteries in Reeds Valley. HaroldDickensonshowed us where they were. We saw Archer Jessee's marker,Joseph andCynthia Smith Jessee's markers, also Ephraim Jessee's. Ithink maybe ifwe could have turned a big Jessee tombstone over, itcould have been JohnJessee, Jr's. It was in the same cemetery withJoseph, Cynthia, andEphraim."

Source: A Jessee Family Bible, last known to be in the possession ofMrs.Ruth Jessee of Abingdon, VA records in detail the children ofJosephJessee and Cynthia Smyth, as well as notes John Jessee's birthas 1750,and Archer Jessee's family as well. Nevertheless, I speculatethat thisBible may have been the original John Jessee Bible, which waspassed toJohn Jessee, Jr., then Joseph Jessee, then Ephraim, the LenaRuth Jessee.

John Jr. was a farmer, but assumed many leadership positionsofimportance. On September 14, 1812, he was commissioned as alieutenantin the militia of the 72nd Regiment. In 1818 he qualifiedasCommissioner of the Peace. He was also appointed the administratorofseveral estates, including the estate of his brother-in-law,AbednegoKiser. Like some of his brothers, John Jr.
served in the Virginia House of Delegates for two terms, beginningin1819 and 1823.

I was sorting through some information we picked up in Richmond thelasttime we were there. This relates to Muster Rolls of the VirginiaMilitiain the War of 1812 printed in 1851.

Montague’s Company, of theOneHundred and Ninth Regiment of Virginia Militia, Middlesex County,in theService of the United States, at several places on theRappahannockRiver, commanded by Lieutenant Colonel Elliot Muse, fromthe 26th ofApril to the 26th of December 1814." The following Jesseeswere listed;William Jesse, Lieutenant served 2 months, and JohnJessee, Privatehaving served 15 days.
2. “Pay Roll of Captain Lewis Lee’s Company, attached to the OneHundredand Ninth Regiment of Virginia Militia, in the Service of theUnitedStates, commanded by Colonel Elliott Muse, from the 9th Octoberto the12th December 1814." John Jesse was listed as a Private havingserved 15days.
I don’t remember seeing anything in the Jessee notes about WilliamorJohn Jessee, Jr. serving in the War of 1812. I know that JohnJessee Jr.Was made a Captain in the Virginia Militia in September of1814 inRussell Co. Notice that the dates of the pay rolls overlap soJohnpossibly only served one 15 day term. Do you have any informationthatwould indicate that these entries were our William and John Jr.?[I don’t- Ed]

John Jessee Jr. was granted 100 acres of land, on headwaters ofBeck'sBranch, now Mill Creek, by Governor James Monroe Sept. 12, 1800.GrantNo. 46, 1797-1801. This is possibly for service in the VirginiaMilitia.He would be 25 at this time. This information has beenattributed toJohn Jessee Sr., but the documents pertaining clearlyindicate "JohnJesse Junior." This same document, signed by JamesMonroe, and the NCEnlistment Record for "John Jesse" believed to beour John Jessee whomarries Frankey Lea, is also cited as evidence thatthe Jessee familyname is properly spelled with one "e".

They wereBarbara, MaryGray, Stephen Jessee, Rebecca Saunders, Archie C. Jessee,John P. Jessee,Martha Luttrell, Eliza A. Alexander, Elzabeth Jessee,Sophia Jessee.John P. was listed as the guardian for Martha F. Jesseeand MissouriJessee who were obviously not the children of Lea andBarbara.

Census data is confusing. It appears that there is possibly adaughter,Mary F. and son-in-law James Saunders, and additionalgrandchildrenlisted with Lea Jesse family: Mary F. 10, James A. 7,Martha Jesse 7,Missouri Jesse 5, and Anne 15mo. See also Mary Jessechildren.

It is possible that Lea Jessee and his family first moved to HawkinsCo,.KY, before moving on to Missouri.

The girl named Missouri in the censes living with Lea is oneofDavid's.

Help me out here, if you can, It seems impossible to find where hewasburied. So many families cemeteries in back pastures,thatsub-divisions have taken over and so many cemeteries, new and oldhavebeen vandalized over the years that Lea Jessee is not listed inany ofthe cemeteries in Jackson County that we searched. Do you haveanyinformation that we could try and follow up on to find out if heandBarbara were buried around here or maybe taken back to a Jesseecemeterysomewhere else. If Barbara was buried near the Luttrell's thestone haslong been gone.

BarbaraCatron's parents were Christopher Kettering and BarbaraGose, so one ofher brother's married to a Jessee may have named hisdaughter Barbaraalso.

Henry and Jane Fuller, together with a Price, moved from Russell Co.,VAto Coles Co., IL in the fall of 1834. They settled in Okaw Townshipinthe northwest corner of Coles Co., where they lived the remainderoftheir lives.

In 1849 a postoffice was established in the Fuller residenceforapproximately two years at which time it was moved to Fuller'sPoint, sonamed because Henry's land came to a point at that location.

Jane's birth has been traditionally reported to be as late as 1803,butTom asserts that her age with respect to the various Census yearswouldindicate that she was born abt 1897.

Source: Tom Rudder [tomr@infostations.com] sent, 4/14/2004, thefollowinginformation regarding Henry and Jane (Jessee) Fuller. It isa breakthrough as it indicates where they went, Coles Co., IL, and itprovidesthe names of all of their eleven children.

This is taken from the Portrait & Biographical Album of ColesCountyIllinois 1887. Biographical Section, by Rev. Silas White, page372,Chapman Brothers, Chicago. It can be found in Ancestry Com. bygoing to“All Data, then Index ”C’ and scroll down to Coles County. Itappears tobe taken from an article submitted by their grandson,speaking in thisquotation of his mother and grandparents, Henry andJane (Jesse) Fuller.
Henry and Jane (Jesse) Fuller. Her (refering to the author'smother)parents (Henry and Jane Fuller), were born in Russell County,VA, herfather April 1, 1792, and her mother, April 19, 1796. They werereared intheir native county and married there Jan. 20, 1814. Eighteenyears later( abt 1832) they emigrated to this State, and taking uptheir residencein North Okaw Township, continued here the remainder oftheir days.
Mr. and Mrs. Fuller were people who enjoyed the highest respects ofthecommunity and were among the warmest supporters of theMethodistEpiscopal Church. Henry Fuller was Justice of the Peace forseveralyears, and took a genuine interest in the various enterpriseshaving fortheir object the welfare and progress of the people atlarge. Thehousehold circle included eleven children, namely, Samuel,Rebecca,Mary, Abraham, Catherine, Nancy, Archer, Wilson V., Leah,David H., andEmeline. With the exception of Mrs. Gilmer, all wereborn in Virginia.All lived to years of maturity, but only three arenow liviing--Nancy,Leah, and Emeline.

It immediately leads to a new research question. Previously I hadonlyfive of their children recorded, and fortunately four of the fiveagreewith the information above. However, I had recorded a sonWillian N.Fuller with a number of descendants, who is not listedabove. There ispossible correspondence with Wilson V. Fuller, who maybe the sameindividual. Now I need to understand if they are the same,or if WilliamN. Fuller is misplaced in this family.

12. Elizabeth Jessee

Traditionally Elizabeth has been noted and recorded as a twin sisterofRebecca, but this is apparently not true, and there is ampleevidencethat Elizabeth Jessee was confused with with Elizabeth Cowan,GeorgeGose's second wife who was born in 1796 . Extrapolation ofElizabethsage based on 1820 Russell Co. Census records as interpretedby Tom andShirley Rudder, Carmichael, CA, would indicate at least 10yearsdifference in age younger than her husband, with Elizabeth bornbetween1774 and 1794 as indicated in the census. Gose Familymaterials, asreported by Tom and Shirley Rudder indicate her birthdateto be 1785.The date of her first childs birth, 1807, would supportthat herbirthdate was no later than 1792, and more likely to bebetween 1785 and1791.

Rebecca Gose & Elizabeth Jessee
I can accept that Rebecca was Elizabeth Jessee's daughter, as I saidIwasn't sure on my info anyway and a look at the 1860 census showsherlisted as age 39 which would place her birth about 1821 which isevenmore of an indicator she was Elizabeth Jessee's daughter.However, youboth have Elizabeth Jessee's death date as 1827, but inthe 1850 censusGeorge Cowan Gose is listed as age 25, in 1860 he islisted as age 35, in1870, age 45 and in 1880, age 55, which allconsistantly indicate a birthyear of 1825. Since we can all safelyassume I think that George CowanGose was the son of George Gose secondwife Elizabeth Cowan, I think thiswould indicate that either ElizabethJessee died before 1825.

More proof Elizabeth Jessee married George Gose. NoteGeorge'sbirthplace is given as Grayson County, VA. Grayson County, VAwas formedfrom Wythe and Patrick Cos in 1792-3, after George was born,so he wasprobably born in what was then Wythe County, VA, but is nowGraysonCounty.

JOSEPH C TONER
"Joseph C. Toner, postmaster at Kinderhook and also a hardwaremerchant,was born in Pike county on the 3d of July, 1845, a son ofWilliam G. andMary (Gose) Toner. The father was born in Jeffersoncounty, Missouri,September 14, 1817. He finally came to Pike county,Illinois, in 1840,and on the 14th of September, 1844, was married hereto Mrs. Mary Long,nee Gose, the widow of W.W. Long. Her father GeorgeGose, was born inGrayson county, Virginia, whence he went to Russellcounty, that state,when a small boy, there spending his remainingdays. He married ElizabethJessey, who was born, reared and died inRussell county. It was in thatcounty that Mrs. Toner was born on the20th of July, 1814, and she livedin her native state until twenty-twoyears of age. She then married W.W.Long and came to this county in1836. They cast in their lot with thepioneer settlers and Mr. Longwas connected with the early development ofthe county until his death,which occurred Augu!
st 6, 1843, his remains being interred near his farm inKinderhooktownship.
In his family were four children: Joseph C.; Louise J., the wifeofC.H. Kennedy, who resides near Kinderhook; Elizabeth J., who marriedEdFerguson and after his death became the wife of George H.

Wilson Vermillion

Russell Co. records show that there were two Wilson Vermillions livinginthis county at the same time that Jesse Vermillion lived here.Itappears that the older Wilson was a brother to Jesse; and , it isclearthat the other was the son of Jesse. The older was married toNancy, andthey had a son named Jesse.

Source: Materials provided by Betty Yates, Lebanon, VA. TheWilsonVermillion who had bought land on both sides of Cedar Creek fromJohnJessee in 1798, and the one who was Commissioner of Revenue in1810,appear to be the brother of Jesse Vermillion. A record of 1845showsWilson Vermillion receiving a land patent for 4200 acres. Itboundedlands of Michael Elliott, Anderson Tignor, and a Puckettt.This landincluded that which joins and includes part of the former JoeCampbellSubdivision. Remains of the old Vermillion homeplace stillcan be seenin the chimney, rubble, and flowers in the yard. Thefamily cemetery isstill intact.

In Wilson's will, November 1857, he deeded to his son, IsaacVermillion,and to his daughter, Rebecca Ferguson, one negro boy namedCharles; inaddition, he gave them land on the north side of RiverMountain. To hisson Elihu, Wilson gave land on which he himself hadlived, which was onthe south side of River Mountain.
