About Duncan Bohannon, Sr.

Duncan Bohannon who emigrated from England to Barbados about 1650, and then to Maryland.

Duncan Bohannon was born circa 1637, probably in Scotland. He died after 1678 and probably before 1704 in Gloucester County, VA after having lived some time in Barbados, Maryland, and then Virginia. He is believed to be the Duncan Bohannon that married Cecily Collmore at St. Michael's, Barbados on July 5, 1658. Duncan was somehow associated with John Neville of St. Mary's Co. (now Calvert Co.), Maryland. Neville sued Duncan for debt by attachment in 1662. This suit was continued in by counsel in 1664 due to the death of the plaintiff (Testamentary Proc., 1657-1666, Liber 1E, folio 102)

Some family historians believe Dunkin may have come from County Cork, Ireland as an indentured servant to work in the sugar plantations, as there are no ships passage list for him.

The parents of Duncan Bohannon,, who reputedly came to Virginia from Weyznouth, Dorsetshire, England,1 have not been determined. The parents of Cicely Coilmore are not known, but she may have been related to Thomas Cullamore who was transported to Maryland in 1637.2

The surname Bohannon is an alternate spelling for Buchanan and the spellings appear interchangeably, with numerous variations, in old records. The family descended from Macaiim de Boquhanari, whose name is on the Ragman's Roll in 1296. There is a Buchanan Parish in Stirlingshire. Scotland.3 This surname is also considered a local name in Fifeshire, Scotland.4

Wherever his place of birth, Duncan Bohannon came to America via l3arbados and lived in Maryland before he settled in Virginia. He and Cicely Coilmore were married in St. Michael Parish, Barbados, on 05 July 1658 and their son John was born there and baptized on 30 January 1658/9:

DUNCAN BOIIANNON

According to Ed Dittmer, "The elder Bohannon [Duncan Bohannon, the immigrant] was reportedly of Scottish ancestry living at or near Wymouth, Dorcetshire, England," before emigrating to Barbados. Duncan was married in Barbados July 5, 1658, as St. Michael's Parish records show. So, he had to have left the British Isles before then, and was born well before 1675.

DESCENDANTS OF DUNCAN BOHANNON, SR (1635-1704) by Bill Scroggins

Generation No. 1 1. DUNCAN1BOHANNON, SR. was born Abt. 1635 in England or Scotland, and died Bef. 1704 in Gloucester Co. Kingston Parish. He married CICELY COLLMORE 05 July 1658 in St. Michael Parish, Barbados. She was born Abt. 1640, and died in Va. Notes for DUNCAN BOHANNON, SR.: Rec'd patent with John Mechen on 20 December 1667 for 220 acres, Gloucester Co. Va. They assigned this tract to Lt. Col. John Armistead. On 6 March 1674 Duncan was granted 340 acres of land in Gloucester Co., Kingston Parish, upon the easternmost River, adj John Nevell, Wm Armistead, and due sd Bohannon by assignment.Dunkin was issued land patents for 220 acres in 1667 and 340 acres in 1674 in Gloucester on Mobjack Bay on the E'most River (Virginia). A United States Post Office, Bohannon ZIP 23021, still stands on that original tract of lands. Some family historians believe Dunkin may have come from County Cork, Ireland as an indentured servant to work in the sugar plantations, as there are no ships passage list for him. In the quits rents of 1704, Duncan Sr. does not appear, but his 3 sons are listed with the above land: Duncan Bohannon-113 1/2 acres John Bohannon-113 1/2 acres Joseph Bohannon-148 acres If Duncan Bohannon, Sr. divided his 340 acres between three sons, the dividends would be 113 1/3 acres each which supports an assumption that these taxpayers were his sons. Joseph apparently added to his dividend or perhaps it was surveyed to be a little larger than the other tracts. The lands of Duncan Bohannon and John Neville probably were on East River in what is now Mathews County. Mobjack Bay is embraced by Gloucester and Mathews counties as an inlet of Chesapeake Bay. It is fed by Severn, North and East rivers. East River is in Mathews County which was formed from Gloucester County in 1790. Duncan (Dunkin) Bohannon was granted 145 acres of land in Kingston Parish, Gloucester County, 26 April 1704 for transporting three persons; William Cluny, Harris Temperance and John Smithson, to Virginia. The tract adjoined lands of Mr. Richard Dudley, Captain Knowles, Captain William Armistead and Aldridge. Since this patent was issued forty years after the one acquired by Duncan Bohannon in 1667, it must have been retroactive or else pertained to Duncan, Jr. It apparently was granted after the rents roll of 1704, since Duncan was shown with only 113 1/2 acres then. Duncan Bohannon, Jr. of Gloucester County in 1704 apparently moved to St. Stephens Parish, King and Queen County, Virginia, by 1730. He seems to be the Duncan Bohannon with wife Sarah who founded the branch of the Bohannon family which lived in Culpeper County, Virginia, and Woodford County, Kentucky. King and Queen County is adjacent to Middlesex County which adjoins Gloucester County. Gloucester County was formed from York County in 1651. New Kent County was erected from York County in 1654. King and Queen County was established in 1691 from New Kent County. Lancaster County was created in 1651 from Northumberland County and Middlesex County was organized in 1669 from Lancaster. Westmoreland County derived from Northumberland in 1653, part of which became Stafford County in 1664. Prince William County came from Stafford in 1731.

Elizabeth Bohannon b. c1660/1670 m. John Neville 1685 The parents of Duncan Bohannon, who reputedly came to Virginia from Weymouth, Dorsetshire, England, have not been determined. The parents of Cicely Collmore are not known, but she mayhave been related to Thomas Cullamore who was transported to Maryland in 1637. The surname Bohannon is an alternate spelling for Buchanan and the spellings appear Interchangeably, with numerous variations, in old records. The family descended from Macoum deBoquhanan, whose name is on the Ragman's Roll in 1296. There is a Buchanan Parish in Stirlingshire, Scotland. The name also is considered a local name in Fifeshire, Scotland. Wherever his place of birth, Duncan Bohannon came to America via Barbados and lived in Marylandbefore he settled in Virginia. He and Cicely Collmore were married in St. Michael Parish, Barbados,on 05 July 1658 and their son John was born there and baptized on 30 January 1658/9 1658 July 5 Dunkin Behonnan & Sisley Collmore, Cert. of Pub. 1658 Jan 30 Jno: son of Dunkin Bewhannon These dates were according to the Julian Calendar, which was in usage at the time, by which the year began on 25 March. The birth of John would be in 1659 on the Gregorian Calendar which wasadopted by the British Government on 01 January 1752 and is still in usage. Nevertheless John wasborn less than seven months after his parents' wedding so Cicely must have been pregnant when married. The marriage of Duncan Bohannon and Cicely Collmore in 1658 suggests that they were probablyborn between 1630 and 1640. The dates of the marriage and of the baptism of son John suggeststhat their other children were born during the period 1660-1670. Duncan Bohannon was in Charles County, Maryland, by 05 May 1662 when he was sued by JohnNeville for debt by attachment. In 1664 the suit was continued by counsel because of the death of the plaintiff. Duncan Bohannon moved to Gloucester County, Virginia, before 20 December 1667 when hereceived a patent with John Mechen for 220 acres there lying at the head of the easternmost river in Mobjack Bay, adjoining lands of Mr. Armistead and Captain Dudley. The patent was granted against headrights for transporting four persons to the colony: Dunkin Bohono (Bohonno) & Jno. Mechen, 220 acs. Gloster Co., upon the head of the E. most Riv., in Mockjack Bay; 20 Dec. 1667, p. 102. Adj. lands of Mr. Armestead & Capt. Dudley. Trans. of 4pers: Tho. Arnis (or Amis), John Blan, Roger Shackleford, John Thomas. Duncan Bohannon (Dunkin Bohonno) and John Mechen (Mekin) assigned this tract to Lieutenant Colonel John Armistead (Armestead) who finally obtained a patent for it on 21 September 1678. On 06 March 1674/5 Duncan Bohannon was granted 340 acres of land in Gloucester County: Dunken Bohannon, 340 acs., Gloucester Co., in Kingstone Par., upon the E'most river; 6 Mar. 1674/5, p. 548. Beg. at gutt parting this & land of Jno. Nevell; & c. part of a gr. devdt. Granted to Mr. Wm. Armestead & due sd. Bohannon by assignment. Jno. Nevill, infant, 100 acs. Gloster Co., Kingston Par., 6 Mar. 1674/5, p. 549. Adj. Dunkin Bohannon on W. side of the E'most river & adj. lands of Richd. Cary & Mr. Jno. Armestead. Due sd.Bohannon by purchase from Mr. Armestead & due sd. Nevel as sonne & heire of his decd. father. The second patent suggests that the trouble between Duncan Bohannon and John Neville in Maryland had been settled amicably. The term infant was used to describe juveniles of any age, so this record undoubtedly pertains to John Neville, son of James and Elizabeth Neville, who was born in 1662, married Elizabeth Bohannon and died in 1733. Being involved in the administration of the estate of James Neville, who died in 1674, Duncan Bohannon may have been a guardian of the boy and probably was a relative; perhaps an uncle. Elizabeth Bohannon who married John Neville in1685 must have been a daughter of Duncan Bohannon. Duncan Bohannon, Sr. apparently died after he got his patent in 1675 and before the 1704 Virginia quit rents were assessed in Kingston Parish, Gloucester County, when the 340 acres appear to have been divided between his sons John, Joseph and Duncan, Jr. Bohannah, Duncan 113 1/2 acres Bohannah, John 113 1/2 acres Bohannah, Joseph 148 acres If Duncan Bohannon, Sr. divided his 340 acres between three sons, the dividends would be 113 1/3 acres each which supports an assumption that these taxpayers were his sons. Joseph apparently added to his dividend or perhaps it was surveyed to be a little larger than the other tracts. The lands of Duncan Bohannon and John Neville probably were on East River in what is now Mathews County. Mobjack Bay is embraced by Gloucester and Mathews counties as an inlet of Chesapeake Bay. It is fed by Severn, North and East rivers. East River is in Mathews County which was formed from Gloucester County in 1790. Duncan (Dunkin) Bohannon was granted 145 acres of land in Kingston Parish, Gloucester County, 26 April 1704 for transporting three persons; William Cluny, Harris Temperance and John Smithson, to Virginia. The tract adjoined lands of Mr. Richard Dudley, Captain Knowles, Captain William Armistead and Aldridge. Since this patent was issued forty years after the one acquired by Duncan Bohannon in 1667, it must have been retroactive or else pertained to Duncan, Jr. It apparently was granted after the rents roll of 1704, since Duncan was shown with only 113 1/2 acres then. Duncan Bohannon, Jr. of Gloucester County in 1704 apparently moved to St. Stephens Parish, King and Queen County, Virginia, by 1730.13 He seems to be the Duncan Bohannon with wife Sarah who founded the branch of the Bohannon family which lived in Culpeper County, Virginia, and Woodford County, Kentucky. King and Queen County is adjacent to Middlesex County which adjoins Gloucester County. Gloucester County was formed from York County in 1651. New Kent County was erected from York County in 1654. King and Queen County was established in 1691 from New Kent County. Lancaster County was created in 1651 from Northumberland County and Middlesex County was organized in1669 from Lancaster. Westmoreland County derived from Northumberland in 1653, part of which became Stafford County in 1664. Prince William County came from Stafford in 1731. Fauquier County originated in 1759 from Prince William. Rappahannock County was founded from Lancaster County in 1656 and expired in 1692 when it was split into Essex and Richmond counties. Spotsylvania County arose from Essex in 1721 and gave birth to Orange County in 1734. In 1749 Culpeper County was structured from Orange. The three Bohannons of the 1704 list were at least of age at that time and born before 1683, perhapsas early as 1660. Duncan Bohannon, Jr. of Spotsylvania County was old enough in 1731 to have a son Duncan III, who was old enough to act as a witness two deeds that year.16 If Duncan III was old enough to serve as a witness in 1731, he must have been born by 1710, which means that his father Duncan, Jr. was born by 1690, again perhaps as early as 1660. The conclusion must be that Duncan Bohannon, Jr. and his presumed siblings, John and Joseph, were born during the period 1660-1680.

Henry Bolton Ch. Regr. Kings psh. Kings Parish probably was an abbreviation for Kingston Parish since there is no record of a Kings Parish in Virginia. The birth entries for Markus and Phillis probably represent slave children. Phillis apparently was still living in 1753 when Duncan Bohannon, Jr. made his will. Daughter Margaret Bohannon, who was not on the birth record, is identified in the will of Duncan Bohannon, Jr. The will indicates that his sons William and Robert predeceased him: Will of Dunkin Bohanon of the Parish of St. Thomas in the County of Orange, dated 2 March 1753 ... Sarah my beloved wife £21 a year during her natural life, to be kept in my son Dunkin's hands for her support, one Negro woman Phillis ...

If she refuse, to be divided among her children as they shall come of age ... two sons Dunkin Bohanon and Elliott Bohanon executors. The will was signed with a mark and witnessed by Joseph Thomas, David Harris, Richd. Thomas, Richd. Vernon and George Fraser. A codicil made the same day before the same witnesses added bequests to two grandchildren ... Franky Bohanon daughter of my son Dunkin Bohanon one Negro girl Lucy ... Mary Bohanon daughter of my son Elliott Bohanon one Negro girl Judy. The will was presented into court by Duncan Bohannon (Dunkin Bohanon) on 01 March 1754 and proved by the witnesses. The inventory of the estate, returned on 28 March 1754, was valued at a total of £370.0.0, including 18 slaves valued at £348.10.0. An additional inventory returned on 25 April 1754 totaled £114.3.6, including 5 slaves worth £114. The estate was distributed on 03 April1754 to the children of William Bohannon, Elliott Bohannon, Judith Askue, Duncan Bohannon, children of Robert Bohannon, deceased, Margaret Gollorthun, and Sarah Saymor, with each share being valued at £66.15.8. On 27 June 1754 an additional inventory was recorded in the amount of £25.5.0. The share of the children of William Bohannon consisted of "Tom, a negro man, 35.0.0, Tamer, a negro woman, 30.0.0, Jamey, a negro boy 1.0.0, one set of Va. cloth bed curtains & vallens & 2 grubbing hoes 0.15.8, total value £66.15.8." Since Margaret Bohannon had eleven children by Henry Rice (one of whom was of age to make a deed by 1747 and therefore born by 1726) and was married to John Gollorthun (Gollorthum) by 1753, it is likely that she married Rice by 1725 and was born before 1710.21 Perhaps, she was omitted from the birth record because she was the first child and already married by 1722 when the list was prepared. On 06 January 1730 Duncan (Dunkin) Bohannon, Jr. was a resident of St. Stephens Parish, King and Queen County, when he purchased 611 acres in St. Georges Parish, Spotsylvania County, for 175 pounds currency from William Eddings and his wife Rebeccah of Spotsylvania. The deed was witnessed by Theophilus Eddings, Thomas Burton and Elliott Bohannon. On 02 November 1731 Dunkin Bohannon of St. Stephens Parish, King and Queen County, sold the 611 acres, now in St. Marks Parish, Spotsylvania County, back to William Eddings (Edins) of St. Marks Parish for 175 pounds. On the same day William Eddings (Edings) and his wife Rebeccah conveyed 312 acres in St. Marks Parish to Dunkin Bohannon for 47 pounds currency. Robert Turner, Thomas Park and Dunkin Bohannon, Jr. (III) witnessed both deeds. On 05 February 1734 Dunkin Bohannon (Bohannan) of King and Queen County returned the 312 acres to William Eddings of St. Marks Parish, Spotsylvania County, for 30 pounds currency. This deed was witnessed by G. Home and James King.22 Elliott Bohannon, who witnessed the deed on 06 January 1730, must have been the son of Duncan Bohannon, Jr. His son Elliott was aged 19 at the time. Duncan Bohannon, Jr. of Orange County is indirectly connected with Henry Bohannon of Middlesex County, Virginia, by an indenture from the widow of his son Robert Bohannon to the second husband of the widow of Henry Bohannon. Dated 01 September 1753 in Culpeper County, a deed was transacted between Bathsheba Bohannon, "Executrix of the last will and testament of Robert Bohannon, late of the county of King & Queen of the one part and Robert Tureman of the county of Culpeper Planter of the second part."23 Elliott Bohannon (1711-1781), son of Duncan, Jr., married Ann Walker, who died before 30 September 1801. They were the parents of Ambrose Bohannon, born c1736/40 because he was old enough to witness a deed in Culpeper County on 14 February 1764; married Mary Gibbs; and died before 25 January 1798 when his estate was administered. James Bohannon, born before 1742; married Frances Booten, daughter of William Booten and Judith Hill, c 1766; and died 01 January 1807/08 in Stokes County, NC. John Bohannon, b. c 1740; married (1) Mary Lewis c 1766, (2) Ann Nunn, widow of George Nunn by 1788, (3) Sarah Garriott, sister of Moses Garriott by 1787; died c 1806 (Will dated 10 November 1805, proved 23 August 1810). Mildred Bohannon, old enough to marry Robert Gaines, Sr. 1762; on Surry County, NC, census 1784/87 and Stokes County, NC, census 1790; resided in Sullivan County, TN on 14 July 1796 when deed made in Madison County, VA (Deed Book 2, page 317). Elliott Bohannon, Jr., born c 1742/44; married (2) Mary Aylor, daughter of G. Henry Aylor and Anna Margaret Crigler of Madison County, VA, by 1780/81; died between 21 May-15 October 1824, aged over 80, Woodford County, KY. Anne Bohannon married William Kirtley, Jr., son of William and Sarah Kirtley, c 1770; gave Power of Attorney in April 1803 before moving to Kentucky; had sons born in 1775 and 1775 who married daughters of brother Elliott in Woodford County, KY in 1798. Richard Bohannon, born 11 December 1748; married (1) Elizabeth Blackburn c 1770, Catherine Herndon 1789, (3) Deborah Pearce 21 June 1806 Shelby County, KY; died 1814/15 Jefferson County, KY (Will Book 2, page 19). Mary Bohannon, born before 1753 when received legacy from grandfather's will; married William Herndon c 1786 (born 26 January 1745 Orange County, VA, died 16 October 1828 Green County, KY. Richard Bohannon, who married (1) Elizabeth Blackburn, (2) Catherine Herndon in 1780 and (3) Deborah Pearce (dau of George) in Shelby County in 1806, mentioned ten children in his will but did not identify them by mother or order of birth: Richard Jr Larkin m Elizabeth Garnett (dau Philip R & Elizabeth Dudley) Woodford Co Ky 1802 George m Franky Burton (dau John), Woodford Co Ky 1795 Julius m Nancy Pearce (dau George), Jefferson Co Ky 1801, and had Willett C & Polly who maried Richard Branham Jr Elizabeth m John Burton Jefferson Co KY 1809 Jane Ambrose Pearce William Henry Richard Bohannon, Jr. apparently was the father of Ann (Nancy) Bohannon, who married Daniel Branham in Woodford County, Kentucky, in 1790 [Forks of Elkhorn Church]. She had a brother named George. In his Jefferson County, Kentucky, will, dated 15 March 1810 and proved 11 May 1812, Daniel Branham named his wife Nancy and five children, Elijah, Richard, Julius and Betsy. He bequeathed his entire estate to his wife for life and specified that it would go to his children when she died. Elijah Branham was to be bound to his uncle Richard Branham until he came of age. Julius Branham, who was the youngest son, was to be bound to an honest mechanic until of age, at the discretion of his grandfather, Richard Bohannon. Richard Branham, Jr. was instructed to comply with a contract made with his uncle, George Bohannon, who was named as one of the executors, along with Isaac Haws and Thomas Sturgeon. The will was witnessed by Larkin Bohannon, Jr., Polly Branham, Richard Branham and Robertson Vaughn. [Early Kentucky Settlers, The Records ofJefferson County, Kentucky, reprinted from The Filson Club History Quarterly, Genealogical Publishing Company, Baltimore, 1988.] Richard Branham, the uncle, probaby was he who married Polly Bohannon, daughter of Richard Bohannon, in Franklin County, Kentucky, on 04 October 1797. [Franklin County, Kentucky, Marriages, 1790-1815.] Polly undoubtedly was a sister of Ann (Nancy) Bohannon who married Daniel Branham. Richard Branham, Jr. married Polly Bohannon, daughter of Julius Bohannon and Nancy Pearce, in Jefferson County, Kentucky, in 1819. [Forks of Elkhorn Church.] To be a witness in 1810, Larkin Bohannon, Jr. must have been born before 1792, so Elizabeth Garnett must have been his father's second wife.

[Jefferson County, Kentucky Will Book 3, Index to Kentucky Wills to 1851, Ronald Vern Jackson, Gary Ronald Teeples and David Schaefermeyer, Accelerated Indexing Systems, Bountiful UT, undated, photocopy.] Nancy "Pierce" undoubtedly was a sister of Deborah Pearce who married Richard Bohannon, her father-in-law, in 1806. Pearce Bohannon undoubtedly was a child of Deborah Pearce and born after 1806. He probably was the Pearce B. Bohannon who married Nancy W. Campbell on 28 June 1832 in Oldham County, Kentucky. [Oldham County, Kentucky, Marriage Book 1, page 39, ] He also probably died before 1850 when A. Bohannon, aged 34, and P. B. Bohannon, aged 8, were in the household of H. [or H.C] Campbell, age 64, a farmer who was born in Kentucky. The initial A. probably stands for Ann. Nan, Nannie and Nancy are English nicknames for women named Anne (Ann). The 8-year-old boy was born about 1842 and presumably the son of A. Bohannon, aged 34, a woman born about 1816 who married in 1832. Logically, Ann (Nancy Campbell) Bohannon was a daughter of H. Campbell. H. Campbell must have been Hugh Campbell, who is buried in the Campbell-Basye Cemetery, 4.1 miles north of Simpsonville on KY1848. When it was surveyed on 01 May 1977, there were only two markers standing in an open pasture about 25 feet from the right hand side the road, within a few feet of the boundary fence. They were only remaining stones in what local residents described as once a much larger cemetery: HUGH CAMPBELL,/DIED/July 24, 1866;/AGED 78 Y's 6 M's 10 D's. /Sleep on Father dear thywork is done. /The mortal pain is past, /Jesus has come and born thee home, /Beyond this stormy blast. - There is a sculpture of a hand pointing upward under the name. IN/memory of/LARIMORE A. BAYSE /Born September 1st/1844 /Died January 29th, 1849 /Sleep lovely son and take thy rest, /God called thee home when he thought best. The age of Hugh Campbell at death calculates to a birth date of 14 January 1788. He would have been 62 in 1850. On 17 Sep 1857, Eliza Jane Bohannon of Shelby County, age 20, born Oldham County, dau of P. B. and Nancy Bohannon married Joshua Hunter of Shelby County, age 27, born Oldham County. R. H. Bohannon was surety on the bond. [Shelby County, Kentucky, Marriages, Volume II, R. H. Bohannon probably was an uncle or brother of the bride. In 1883, the residences of Nancy Bohannon and P. B. Bohannon were situated on either side of a quarry on the southeast corner of County Road 1848 and State Highway 362, just east of Todd's Point in western Shelby County, not far from the Oldham and Jefferson county lines. [An Atlas ofHenry and Shelby Counties, Kentucky, D. J. Lake & Company, Philadelphia, 1883.] This P. B. Bohannon undoubtedly was the 8-year-old residing with A, Bohannon and H. Campbell in 1850. It is also likely that he was the Pearce B. Bohannon who married Sallie A. Smith on 21 Jan 1869 with Andrew Campbell as surety on the bond. [Shelby County, Kentucky, Marriages, Volume II. He also must have have been the Pearce B. Bohannon, who served as a private in Company B, Duke's 2nd Kentucky Cavalry, CSA, in the Civil War [E-mail data of Joan Mustard from her second cousin Pat Baron], was estranged from his family for many years before his death: [Commonwealth of Kentucky Certificate of Death 14459, P.

D. Burnett, M.D., Anchorage, Kentucky Buried 20 May 1923 Simpsonville, Kentucky Undertaker M. A. Stoess (Stivers), Crestwood, Kentucky Personal information based on records of the Kentucky Confederate Home. Either the records of the Confederate Home had the name of P. B. Bohannon's father wrong, or there were two P. B. Bohannons born in the same geographic area in 1842. This is a highly unlikely coincindence. The grave of Pearce B. Bohannon, who was buried at Simpsonville, is not listed in a published survey of Shelby County cemeteries. [Cemeteries in Shelby County, Kentucky, Shelby County Historical Society, 1979.] Pearce (Pierce) Butler Bohannon had a daughter Mary Corilla Bohannon who was born in Todd's Point, Kentucky. She maried Thomas Jefferson Moore and had a daughter Leona Fanchion Moore, who was born at Todd's Point. Todd's Point, Kentucky, probably is named for Todd's Point in Matthews County, Virginia, which across the East River from the town of Bohannon. East River is a tributary of Mobjack Bay. Matthews County was established in 1691 from Gloucester County, Virginia, where Duncan Bohannon, Sr. had land on Mobjack Bay.

John Bohannon (1740-1806), son of Elliott Bohannon, was the father of Captain Thomas Bohannon who was born on 06 June 1767, married Frances Dickens on 14 October 1789 and died before 16 June 1818 when Frances acted as his executrix. John Bohannon made deeds to his son Thomas in Culpeper County on 12 October 1785 and 04 October 1787 with wife Sarah Bohannon participating in the second deed only.27 In her Madison County, Virginia, will, dated 20 April 1814 and proved on 22 August 1816, Sarah Garriott Bohannon appointed Thomas Bohannon as her executor and described him as her son-in-law. She referred to Anthony Bohannon as her grandson-in-law which indicates that Thomas and Anthony actually were step-son and step-grandson. She named her brother Moses Garriott in her will. Moses was security on the bond of Frances (Dickens) Bohannon, executrix of Thomas Bohannon, on 16 June 1818. Madison County was erected in 1793 from Culpeper County.29 Elliott Bohannon witnessed deeds in Orange County on 28 February 1739/40, 26 June 1740, 23/24 October 1740 and 24/25 June 1741. Elliott Bohannon, planter of St. Thomas Parish, Orange County, bought 800 acres, on branches of Rapidan River in the Little Fork, from John and Ann Wisdom for 80 pounds, on 24 and 25 June 1741. In his will, dated in April 1781 and proved on 21 May 1781, Elliott Bohannon of Culpeper County referred to eight children but only identified six by name. He left 1/3 of his estate and three negroes to wife Ann; his home plantation and two negroes to son Ambrose; 50 pounds hard cash or the depreciation in paper money to daughters Mildred Gaines, Mary Herndon and Anne Kirtley; with the balance of his estate equally to eight children. Sons Ambrose, John and Elliott Bohannon were named executors. The will was witnessed by James Archer, William Kirtley and Julius Gibbs.

DESCENDANTS OF DUNCAN BOHANNON, SR (1635-1704) by Bill Scroggins

Generation No. 1 1. DUNCAN1BOHANNON, SR. was born Abt. 1635 in England or Scotland, and died Bef. 1704 in Gloucester Co. Kingston Parish. He married CICELY COLLMORE 05 July 1658 in St. Michael Parish, Barbados. She was born Abt. 1640, and died in Va. Notes for DUNCAN BOHANNON, SR.: Rec'd patent with John Mechen on 20 December 1667 for 220 acres, Gloucester Co. Va. They assigned this tract to Lt. Col. John Armistead. On 6 March 1674 Duncan was granted 340 acres of land in Gloucester Co., Kingston Parish, upon the easternmost River, adj John Nevell, Wm Armistead, and due sd Bohannon by assignment.Dunkin was issued land patents for 220 acres in 1667 and 340 acres in 1674 in Gloucester on Mobjack Bay on the E'most River (Virginia). A United States Post Office, Bohannon ZIP 23021, still stands on that original tract of lands. Some family historians believe Dunkin may have come from County Cork, Ireland as an indentured servant to work in the sugar plantations, as there are no ships passage list for him.


Duncan Bohannon who emigrated from England to Barbados about 1650, and then to Maryland.

It has been suggested that Bohannon may have been taken prisoner during the English Civil and sent to Barbados with other prisoners. As time went on, there terms of their confinement were relaxed, and he was able to get married and immigrate to the Colonies.

Duncan Bohannon was born circa 1637, probably in Scotland. He died after 1678 and probably before 1704 in Gloucester County, VA after having lived some time in Barbados, Maryland, and then Virginia. He is believed to be the Duncan Bohannon that married Cecily Collmore at St. Michael's, Barbados on July 5, 1658. Duncan was somehow associated with John Neville of St. Mary's Co. (now Calvert Co.), Maryland. Neville sued Duncan for debt by attachment in 1662. This suit was continued in by counsel in 1664 due to the death of the plaintiff (Testamentary Proc., 1657-1666, Liber 1E, folio 102)

Some family historians believe Dunkin may have come from County Cork, Ireland as an indentured servant to work in the sugar plantations, as there are no ships passage list for him.

The parents of Duncan Bohannon,, who reputedly came to Virginia from Weyznouth, Dorsetshire, England,1 have not been determined. The parents of Cicely Coilmore are not known, but she may have been related to Thomas Cullamore who was transported to Maryland in 1637.2

The surname Bohannon is an alternate spelling for Buchanan and the spellings appear interchangeably, with numerous variations, in old records. The family descended from Macaiim de Boquhanari, whose name is on the Ragman's Roll in 1296. There is a Buchanan Parish in Stirlingshire. Scotland.3 This surname is also considered a local name in Fifeshire, Scotland.4

Wherever his place of birth, Duncan Bohannon came to America via l3arbados and lived in Maryland before he settled in Virginia. He and Cicely Coilmore were married in St. Michael Parish, Barbados, on 05 July 1658 and their son John was born there and baptized on 30 January 1658/9:

DUNCAN BOIIANNON

According to Ed Dittmer, "The elder Bohannon [Duncan Bohannon, the immigrant] was reportedly of Scottish ancestry living at or near Wymouth, Dorcetshire, England," before emigrating to Barbados. Duncan was married in Barbados July 5, 1658, as St. Michael's Parish records show. So, he had to have left the British Isles before then, and was born well before 1675.

DESCENDANTS OF DUNCAN BOHANNON, SR (1635-1704) by Bill Scroggins

Generation No. 1 1. DUNCAN1BOHANNON, SR. was born Abt. 1635 in England or Scotland, and died Bef. 1704 in Gloucester Co. Kingston Parish. He married CICELY COLLMORE 05 July 1658 in St. Michael Parish, Barbados. She was born Abt. 1640, and died in Va. Notes for DUNCAN BOHANNON, SR.: Rec'd patent with John Mechen on 20 December 1667 for 220 acres, Gloucester Co. Va. They assigned this tract to Lt. Col. John Armistead. On 6 March 1674 Duncan was granted 340 acres of land in Gloucester Co., Kingston Parish, upon the easternmost River, adj John Nevell, Wm Armistead, and due sd Bohannon by assignment.Dunkin was issued land patents for 220 acres in 1667 and 340 acres in 1674 in Gloucester on Mobjack Bay on the E'most River (Virginia). A United States Post Office, Bohannon ZIP 23021, still stands on that original tract of lands. Some family historians believe Dunkin may have come from County Cork, Ireland as an indentured servant to work in the sugar plantations, as there are no ships passage list for him. In the quits rents of 1704, Duncan Sr. does not appear, but his 3 sons are listed with the above land: Duncan Bohannon-113 1/2 acres John Bohannon-113 1/2 acres Joseph Bohannon-148 acres If Duncan Bohannon, Sr. divided his 340 acres between three sons, the dividends would be 113 1/3 acres each which supports an assumption that these taxpayers were his sons. Joseph apparently added to his dividend or perhaps it was surveyed to be a little larger than the other tracts. The lands of Duncan Bohannon and John Neville probably were on East River in what is now Mathews County. Mobjack Bay is embraced by Gloucester and Mathews counties as an inlet of Chesapeake Bay. It is fed by Severn, North and East rivers. East River is in Mathews County which was formed from Gloucester County in 1790. Duncan (Dunkin) Bohannon was granted 145 acres of land in Kingston Parish, Gloucester County, 26 April 1704 for transporting three persons; William Cluny, Harris Temperance and John Smithson, to Virginia. The tract adjoined lands of Mr. Richard Dudley, Captain Knowles, Captain William Armistead and Aldridge. Since this patent was issued forty years after the one acquired by Duncan Bohannon in 1667, it must have been retroactive or else pertained to Duncan, Jr. It apparently was granted after the rents roll of 1704, since Duncan was shown with only 113 1/2 acres then. Duncan Bohannon, Jr. of Gloucester County in 1704 apparently moved to St. Stephens Parish, King and Queen County, Virginia, by 1730. He seems to be the Duncan Bohannon with wife Sarah who founded the branch of the Bohannon family which lived in Culpeper County, Virginia, and Woodford County, Kentucky. King and Queen County is adjacent to Middlesex County which adjoins Gloucester County. Gloucester County was formed from York County in 1651. New Kent County was erected from York County in 1654. King and Queen County was established in 1691 from New Kent County. Lancaster County was created in 1651 from Northumberland County and Middlesex County was organized in 1669 from Lancaster. Westmoreland County derived from Northumberland in 1653, part of which became Stafford County in 1664. Prince William County came from Stafford in 1731.

Elizabeth Bohannon b. c1660/1670 m. John Neville 1685 The parents of Duncan Bohannon, who reputedly came to Virginia from Weymouth, Dorsetshire, England, have not been determined. The parents of Cicely Collmore are not known, but she mayhave been related to Thomas Cullamore who was transported to Maryland in 1637. The surname Bohannon is an alternate spelling for Buchanan and the spellings appear Interchangeably, with numerous variations, in old records. The family descended from Macoum deBoquhanan, whose name is on the Ragman's Roll in 1296. There is a Buchanan Parish in Stirlingshire, Scotland. The name also is considered a local name in Fifeshire, Scotland. Wherever his place of birth, Duncan Bohannon came to America via Barbados and lived in Marylandbefore he settled in Virginia. He and Cicely Collmore were married in St. Michael Parish, Barbados,on 05 July 1658 and their son John was born there and baptized on 30 January 1658/9 1658 July 5 Dunkin Behonnan & Sisley Collmore, Cert. of Pub. 1658 Jan 30 Jno: son of Dunkin Bewhannon These dates were according to the Julian Calendar, which was in usage at the time, by which the year began on 25 March. The birth of John would be in 1659 on the Gregorian Calendar which wasadopted by the British Government on 01 January 1752 and is still in usage. Nevertheless John wasborn less than seven months after his parents' wedding so Cicely must have been pregnant when married. The marriage of Duncan Bohannon and Cicely Collmore in 1658 suggests that they were probablyborn between 1630 and 1640. The dates of the marriage and of the baptism of son John suggeststhat their other children were born during the period 1660-1670. Duncan Bohannon was in Charles County, Maryland, by 05 May 1662 when he was sued by JohnNeville for debt by attachment. In 1664 the suit was continued by counsel because of the death of the plaintiff. Duncan Bohannon moved to Gloucester County, Virginia, before 20 December 1667 when hereceived a patent with John Mechen for 220 acres there lying at the head of the easternmost river in Mobjack Bay, adjoining lands of Mr. Armistead and Captain Dudley. The patent was granted against headrights for transporting four persons to the colony: Dunkin Bohono (Bohonno) & Jno. Mechen, 220 acs. Gloster Co., upon the head of the E. most Riv., in Mockjack Bay; 20 Dec. 1667, p. 102. Adj. lands of Mr. Armestead & Capt. Dudley. Trans. of 4pers: Tho. Arnis (or Amis), John Blan, Roger Shackleford, John Thomas. Duncan Bohannon (Dunkin Bohonno) and John Mechen (Mekin) assigned this tract to Lieutenant Colonel John Armistead (Armestead) who finally obtained a patent for it on 21 September 1678. On 06 March 1674/5 Duncan Bohannon was granted 340 acres of land in Gloucester County: Dunken Bohannon, 340 acs., Gloucester Co., in Kingstone Par., upon the E'most river; 6 Mar. 1674/5, p. 548. Beg. at gutt parting this & land of Jno. Nevell; & c. part of a gr. devdt. Granted to Mr. Wm. Armestead & due sd. Bohannon by assignment. Jno. Nevill, infant, 100 acs. Gloster Co., Kingston Par., 6 Mar. 1674/5, p. 549. Adj. Dunkin Bohannon on W. side of the E'most river & adj. lands of Richd. Cary & Mr. Jno. Armestead. Due sd.Bohannon by purchase from Mr. Armestead & due sd. Nevel as sonne & heire of his decd. father. The second patent suggests that the trouble between Duncan Bohannon and John Neville in Maryland had been settled amicably. The term infant was used to describe juveniles of any age, so this record undoubtedly pertains to John Neville, son of James and Elizabeth Neville, who was born in 1662, married Elizabeth Bohannon and died in 1733. Being involved in the administration of the estate of James Neville, who died in 1674, Duncan Bohannon may have been a guardian of the boy and probably was a relative; perhaps an uncle. Elizabeth Bohannon who married John Neville in1685 must have been a daughter of Duncan Bohannon. Duncan Bohannon, Sr. apparently died after he got his patent in 1675 and before the 1704 Virginia quit rents were assessed in Kingston Parish, Gloucester County, when the 340 acres appear to have been divided between his sons John, Joseph and Duncan, Jr. Bohannah, Duncan 113 1/2 acres Bohannah, John 113 1/2 acres Bohannah, Joseph 148 acres If Duncan Bohannon, Sr. divided his 340 acres between three sons, the dividends would be 113 1/3 acres each which supports an assumption that these taxpayers were his sons. Joseph apparently added to his dividend or perhaps it was surveyed to be a little larger than the other tracts. The lands of Duncan Bohannon and John Neville probably were on East River in what is now Mathews County. Mobjack Bay is embraced by Gloucester and Mathews counties as an inlet of Chesapeake Bay. It is fed by Severn, North and East rivers. East River is in Mathews County which was formed from Gloucester County in 1790. Duncan (Dunkin) Bohannon was granted 145 acres of land in Kingston Parish, Gloucester County, 26 April 1704 for transporting three persons; William Cluny, Harris Temperance and John Smithson, to Virginia. The tract adjoined lands of Mr. Richard Dudley, Captain Knowles, Captain William Armistead and Aldridge. Since this patent was issued forty years after the one acquired by Duncan Bohannon in 1667, it must have been retroactive or else pertained to Duncan, Jr. It apparently was granted after the rents roll of 1704, since Duncan was shown with only 113 1/2 acres then. Duncan Bohannon, Jr. of Gloucester County in 1704 apparently moved to St. Stephens Parish, King and Queen County, Virginia, by 1730.13 He seems to be the Duncan Bohannon with wife Sarah who founded the branch of the Bohannon family which lived in Culpeper County, Virginia, and Woodford County, Kentucky. King and Queen County is adjacent to Middlesex County which adjoins Gloucester County. Gloucester County was formed from York County in 1651. New Kent County was erected from York County in 1654. King and Queen County was established in 1691 from New Kent County. Lancaster County was created in 1651 from Northumberland County and Middlesex County was organized in1669 from Lancaster. Westmoreland County derived from Northumberland in 1653, part of which became Stafford County in 1664. Prince William County came from Stafford in 1731. Fauquier County originated in 1759 from Prince William. Rappahannock County was founded from Lancaster County in 1656 and expired in 1692 when it was split into Essex and Richmond counties. Spotsylvania County arose from Essex in 1721 and gave birth to Orange County in 1734. In 1749 Culpeper County was structured from Orange. The three Bohannons of the 1704 list were at least of age at that time and born before 1683, perhapsas early as 1660. Duncan Bohannon, Jr. of Spotsylvania County was old enough in 1731 to have a son Duncan III, who was old enough to act as a witness two deeds that year.16 If Duncan III was old enough to serve as a witness in 1731, he must have been born by 1710, which means that his father Duncan, Jr. was born by 1690, again perhaps as early as 1660. The conclusion must be that Duncan Bohannon, Jr. and his presumed siblings, John and Joseph, were born during the period 1660-1680. DUNCAN BOHANNON JR Born Died between 02 Mar 1753 and 01 Mar 1754 Orange County, Virginia Married Sarah (Elliott?) Children: Margaret Bohannon d. aft 04 Mar 1754 m.

Ann Walker The wife of Duncan Bohannon, Jr. may have been Sarah Elliott, since they used the names Elliott and Robert for sons and Robert Elliott and William Elliott were neighbors of Duncan Bohannon, Sr. A birth record of the children of Duncan Bohannon, Jr. was transcribed from the register of Kingston Parish on 12 June 1722 by Henry Bolton, perhaps for Duncan to take with him when he moved fromGloucester County June ye 12th 1722 Sarah ye Daughter of Dunken & Sarah Bohanan was born ye 7th of Sepr. 1698 Judeth ye daughter of Dunken & Sarah Bohanan was born ye 6th of may 1699 William ye Son of Dunken & Sarah Bohanan was born ye 4th of Aprill 1701 Dunken ye Son of Dunken & Sarah Bohanan was born ye 17th of January 1704 Robert ye Son of Dunken & Sarah Bohanan was born ye 30th of March 1707 Elliott ye Son of Dunken & Sarah Bohannon was born ye 21th of december 1711 Markus was born ye 6th of May 1710 Phillis was born ye 12th June 1714 A true Copy from ye Regestor Test. Henry Bolton Ch. Regr. Kings psh. Kings Parish probably was an abbreviation for Kingston Parish since there is no record of a Kings Parish in Virginia. The birth entries for Markus and Phillis probably represent slave children. Phillis apparently was still living in 1753 when Duncan Bohannon, Jr. made his will. Daughter Margaret Bohannon, who was not on the birth record, is identified in the will of Duncan Bohannon, Jr. The will indicates that his sons William and Robert predeceased him: Will of Dunkin Bohanon of the Parish of St. Thomas in the County of Orange, dated 2 March 1753 ... Sarah my beloved wife £21 a year during her natural life, to be kept in my son Dunkin's hands for her support, one Negro woman Phillis ... Negro wench Jenny ... in lieu of dower ... land in King William County may be sold ... children of my son William one seventh part of my estate to be equally divided ... as they shall come of age ... son Dunkin one seventh part ... children of my son Robert one seventh part ... equally divided ... as they shall come of age ... son Elliott one seventh part ... daughter Sarah Saymor one seventh part ... during her natural life and then to her heirs ... daughter Judith Askue one seventh part ... during her life and then to heirs lawfully begotten of her body by her present husband provided she gives good security for the said estate to return to her said children at her decease. If she refuse, to be divided among her children as they shall come of age ... daughter Margaret Gollorthun one seventh part ... during her natural life and then to the children lawfully begotten of her body by her former husband Henry Rice provided she gives good security. If she refuse, to be divided among her children as they shall come of age ... two sons Dunkin Bohanon and Elliott Bohanon executors. The will was signed with a mark and witnessed by Joseph Thomas, David Harris, Richd. Thomas, Richd. Vernon and George Fraser. A codicil made the same day before the same witnesses added bequests to two grandchildren ... Franky Bohanon daughter of my son Dunkin Bohanon one Negro girl Lucy ... Mary Bohanon daughter of my son Elliott Bohanon one Negro girl Judy. The will was presented into court by Duncan Bohannon (Dunkin Bohanon) on 01 March 1754 and proved by the witnesses. The inventory of the estate, returned on 28 March 1754, was valued at a total of £370.0.0, including 18 slaves valued at £348.10.0. An additional inventory returned on 25 April 1754 totaled £114.3.6, including 5 slaves worth £114. The estate was distributed on 03 April1754 to the children of William Bohannon, Elliott Bohannon, Judith Askue, Duncan Bohannon, children of Robert Bohannon, deceased, Margaret Gollorthun, and Sarah Saymor, with each share being valued at £66.15.8. On 27 June 1754 an additional inventory was recorded in the amount of £25.5.0. The share of the children of William Bohannon consisted of "Tom, a negro man, 35.0.0, Tamer, a negro woman, 30.0.0, Jamey, a negro boy 1.0.0, one set of Va. cloth bed curtains & vallens & 2 grubbing hoes 0.15.8, total value £66.15.8." Since Margaret Bohannon had eleven children by Henry Rice (one of whom was of age to make a deed by 1747 and therefore born by 1726) and was married to John Gollorthun (Gollorthum) by 1753, it is likely that she married Rice by 1725 and was born before 1710.21 Perhaps, she was omitted from the birth record because she was the first child and already married by 1722 when the list was prepared. On 06 January 1730 Duncan (Dunkin) Bohannon, Jr. was a resident of St. Stephens Parish, King and Queen County, when he purchased 611 acres in St. Georges Parish, Spotsylvania County, for 175 pounds currency from William Eddings and his wife Rebeccah of Spotsylvania. The deed was witnessed by Theophilus Eddings, Thomas Burton and Elliott Bohannon. On 02 November 1731 Dunkin Bohannon of St. Stephens Parish, King and Queen County, sold the 611 acres, now in St. Marks Parish, Spotsylvania County, back to William Eddings (Edins) of St. Marks Parish for 175 pounds. On the same day William Eddings (Edings) and his wife Rebeccah conveyed 312 acres in St. Marks Parish to Dunkin Bohannon for 47 pounds currency. Robert Turner, Thomas Park and Dunkin Bohannon, Jr. (III) witnessed both deeds. On 05 February 1734 Dunkin Bohannon (Bohannan) of King and Queen County returned the 312 acres to William Eddings of St. Marks Parish, Spotsylvania County, for 30 pounds currency. This deed was witnessed by G. Home and James King.22 Elliott Bohannon, who witnessed the deed on 06 January 1730, must have been the son of Duncan Bohannon, Jr. His son Elliott was aged 19 at the time. Duncan Bohannon, Jr. of Orange County is indirectly connected with Henry Bohannon of Middlesex County, Virginia, by an indenture from the widow of his son Robert Bohannon to the second husband of the widow of Henry Bohannon. Dated 01 September 1753 in Culpeper County, a deed was transacted between Bathsheba Bohannon, "Executrix of the last will and testament of Robert Bohannon, late of the county of King & Queen of the one part and Robert Tureman of the county of Culpeper Planter of the second part."23 Elliott Bohannon (1711-1781), son of Duncan, Jr., married Ann Walker, who died before 30 September 1801. They were the parents of Ambrose Bohannon, born c1736/40 because he was old enough to witness a deed in Culpeper County on 14 February 1764; married Mary Gibbs; and died before 25 January 1798 when his estate was administered. James Bohannon, born before 1742; married Frances Booten, daughter of William Booten and Judith Hill, c 1766; and died 01 January 1807/08 in Stokes County, NC. John Bohannon, b. c 1740; married (1) Mary Lewis c 1766, (2) Ann Nunn, widow of George Nunn by 1788, (3) Sarah Garriott, sister of Moses Garriott by 1787; died c 1806 (Will dated 10 November 1805, proved 23 August 1810). Mildred Bohannon, old enough to marry Robert Gaines, Sr. 1762; on Surry County, NC, census 1784/87 and Stokes County, NC, census 1790; resided in Sullivan County, TN on 14 July 1796 when deed made in Madison County, VA (Deed Book 2, page 317). Elliott Bohannon, Jr., born c 1742/44; married (2) Mary Aylor, daughter of G. Henry Aylor and Anna Margaret Crigler of Madison County, VA, by 1780/81; died between 21 May-15 October 1824, aged over 80, Woodford County, KY. Anne Bohannon married William Kirtley, Jr., son of William and Sarah Kirtley, c 1770; gave Power of Attorney in April 1803 before moving to Kentucky; had sons born in 1775 and 1775 who married daughters of brother Elliott in Woodford County, KY in 1798. Richard Bohannon, born 11 December 1748; married (1) Elizabeth Blackburn c 1770, Catherine Herndon 1789, (3) Deborah Pearce 21 June 1806 Shelby County, KY; died 1814/15 Jefferson County, KY (Will Book 2, page 19). Mary Bohannon, born before 1753 when received legacy from grandfather's will; married William Herndon c 1786 (born 26 January 1745 Orange County, VA, died 16 October 1828 Green County, KY. Richard Bohannon, who married (1) Elizabeth Blackburn, (2) Catherine Herndon in 1780 and (3) Deborah Pearce (dau of George) in Shelby County in 1806, mentioned ten children in his will but did not identify them by mother or order of birth: Richard Jr Larkin m Elizabeth Garnett (dau Philip R & Elizabeth Dudley) Woodford Co Ky 1802 George m Franky Burton (dau John), Woodford Co Ky 1795 Julius m Nancy Pearce (dau George), Jefferson Co Ky 1801, and had Willett C & Polly who maried Richard Branham Jr Elizabeth m John Burton Jefferson Co KY 1809 Jane Ambrose Pearce William Henry Richard Bohannon, Jr. apparently was the father of Ann (Nancy) Bohannon, who married Daniel Branham in Woodford County, Kentucky, in 1790 [Forks of Elkhorn Church]. She had a brother named George. In his Jefferson County, Kentucky, will, dated 15 March 1810 and proved 11 May 1812, Daniel Branham named his wife Nancy and five children, Elijah, Richard, Julius and Betsy. He bequeathed his entire estate to his wife for life and specified that it would go to his children when she died. Elijah Branham was to be bound to his uncle Richard Branham until he came of age. Julius Branham, who was the youngest son, was to be bound to an honest mechanic until of age, at the discretion of his grandfather, Richard Bohannon. Richard Branham, Jr. was instructed to comply with a contract made with his uncle, George Bohannon, who was named as one of the executors, along with Isaac Haws and Thomas Sturgeon. The will was witnessed by Larkin Bohannon, Jr., Polly Branham, Richard Branham and Robertson Vaughn. [Early Kentucky Settlers, The Records ofJefferson County, Kentucky, reprinted from The Filson Club History Quarterly, Genealogical Publishing Company, Baltimore, 1988.] Richard Branham, the uncle, probaby was he who married Polly Bohannon, daughter of Richard Bohannon, in Franklin County, Kentucky, on 04 October 1797. [Franklin County, Kentucky, Marriages, 1790-1815.] Polly undoubtedly was a sister of Ann (Nancy) Bohannon who married Daniel Branham. Richard Branham, Jr. married Polly Bohannon, daughter of Julius Bohannon and Nancy Pearce, in Jefferson County, Kentucky, in 1819. [Forks of Elkhorn Church.] To be a witness in 1810, Larkin Bohannon, Jr. must have been born before 1792, so Elizabeth Garnett must have been his father's second wife.

[Jefferson County, Kentucky Will Book 3, Index to Kentucky Wills to 1851, Ronald Vern Jackson, Gary Ronald Teeples and David Schaefermeyer, Accelerated Indexing Systems, Bountiful UT, undated, photocopy.] Nancy "Pierce" undoubtedly was a sister of Deborah Pearce who married Richard Bohannon, her father-in-law, in 1806. Pearce Bohannon undoubtedly was a child of Deborah Pearce and born after 1806. He probably was the Pearce B. Bohannon who married Nancy W. Campbell on 28 June 1832 in Oldham County, Kentucky. [Oldham County, Kentucky, Marriage Book 1, page 39, ] He also probably died before 1850 when A. Bohannon, aged 34, and P. B. Bohannon, aged 8, were in the household of H. [or H.C] Campbell, age 64, a farmer who was born in Kentucky. The initial A. probably stands for Ann. Nan, Nannie and Nancy are English nicknames for women named Anne (Ann). The 8-year-old boy was born about 1842 and presumably the son of A. Bohannon, aged 34, a woman born about 1816 who married in 1832. Logically, Ann (Nancy Campbell) Bohannon was a daughter of H. Campbell. H. Campbell must have been Hugh Campbell, who is buried in the Campbell-Basye Cemetery, 4.1 miles north of Simpsonville on KY1848. When it was surveyed on 01 May 1977, there were only two markers standing in an open pasture about 25 feet from the right hand side the road, within a few feet of the boundary fence. They were only remaining stones in what local residents described as once a much larger cemetery: HUGH CAMPBELL,/DIED/July 24, 1866;/AGED 78 Y's 6 M's 10 D's. /Sleep on Father dear thywork is done. /The mortal pain is past, /Jesus has come and born thee home, /Beyond this stormy blast. - There is a sculpture of a hand pointing upward under the name. IN/memory of/LARIMORE A. BAYSE /Born September 1st/1844 /Died January 29th, 1849 /Sleep lovely son and take thy rest, /God called thee home when he thought best. The age of Hugh Campbell at death calculates to a birth date of 14 January 1788. He would have been 62 in 1850. On 17 Sep 1857, Eliza Jane Bohannon of Shelby County, age 20, born Oldham County, dau of P. B. and Nancy Bohannon married Joshua Hunter of Shelby County, age 27, born Oldham County. R. H. Bohannon was surety on the bond. [Shelby County, Kentucky, Marriages, Volume II, R. H. Bohannon probably was an uncle or brother of the bride. In 1883, the residences of Nancy Bohannon and P. B. Bohannon were situated on either side of a quarry on the southeast corner of County Road 1848 and State Highway 362, just east of Todd's Point in western Shelby County, not far from the Oldham and Jefferson county lines. [An Atlas ofHenry and Shelby Counties, Kentucky, D. J. Lake & Company, Philadelphia, 1883.] This P. B. Bohannon undoubtedly was the 8-year-old residing with A, Bohannon and H. Campbell in 1850. It is also likely that he was the Pearce B. Bohannon who married Sallie A. Smith on 21 Jan 1869 with Andrew Campbell as surety on the bond. [Shelby County, Kentucky, Marriages, Volume II. He also must have have been the Pearce B. Bohannon, who served as a private in Company B, Duke's 2nd Kentucky Cavalry, CSA, in the Civil War [E-mail data of Joan Mustard from her second cousin Pat Baron], was estranged from his family for many years before his death: [Commonwealth of Kentucky Certificate of Death 14459, P. B. Bohannon Male, white, married Born 04 Mar 1842 Kentucky Died 19 May 1923 Kentucky Confederate Home, Pewee Valley, Oldham Co., KY Aged 82 years, 2 months Occupation engineer Father Richard Bohannon born Todd's Point, Shelby County, Kentucky Mother not shown Cause of death intestinal paresis; contributing factor arteriosclerosis Attending Physician E. D. Burnett, M.D., Anchorage, Kentucky Buried 20 May 1923 Simpsonville, Kentucky Undertaker M. A. Stoess (Stivers), Crestwood, Kentucky Personal information based on records of the Kentucky Confederate Home. Either the records of the Confederate Home had the name of P. B. Bohannon's father wrong, or there were two P. B. Bohannons born in the same geographic area in 1842. This is a highly unlikely coincindence. The grave of Pearce B. Bohannon, who was buried at Simpsonville, is not listed in a published survey of Shelby County cemeteries. [Cemeteries in Shelby County, Kentucky, Shelby County Historical Society, 1979.] Pearce (Pierce) Butler Bohannon had a daughter Mary Corilla Bohannon who was born in Todd's Point, Kentucky. She maried Thomas Jefferson Moore and had a daughter Leona Fanchion Moore, who was born at Todd's Point. Todd's Point, Kentucky, probably is named for Todd's Point in Matthews County, Virginia, which across the East River from the town of Bohannon. East River is a tributary of Mobjack Bay. Matthews County was established in 1691 from Gloucester County, Virginia, where Duncan Bohannon, Sr. had land on Mobjack Bay.

William Herndon c1786 Elliott Bohannon of St. Thomas Parish, Orange County, and his wife Ann made a deed to Joseph Rogers of St. Stephens Parish, King and Queen County, on 23 May 1745. John Bohannon (1740-1806), son of Elliott Bohannon, was the father of Captain Thomas Bohannon who was born on 06 June 1767, married Frances Dickens on 14 October 1789 and died before 16 June 1818 when Frances acted as his executrix. John Bohannon made deeds to his son Thomas in Culpeper County on 12 October 1785 and 04 October 1787 with wife Sarah Bohannon participating in the second deed only.27 In her Madison County, Virginia, will, dated 20 April 1814 and proved on 22 August 1816, Sarah Garriott Bohannon appointed Thomas Bohannon as her executor and described him as her son-in-law. She referred to Anthony Bohannon as her grandson-in-law which indicates that Thomas and Anthony actually were step-son and step-grandson. She named her brother Moses Garriott in her will. Moses was security on the bond of Frances (Dickens) Bohannon, executrix of Thomas Bohannon, on 16 June 1818. Madison County was erected in 1793 from Culpeper County.29 Elliott Bohannon witnessed deeds in Orange County on 28 February 1739/40, 26 June 1740, 23/24 October 1740 and 24/25 June 1741. Elliott Bohannon, planter of St. Thomas Parish, Orange County, bought 800 acres, on branches of Rapidan River in the Little Fork, from John and Ann Wisdom for 80 pounds, on 24 and 25 June 1741. In his will, dated in April 1781 and proved on 21 May 1781, Elliott Bohannon of Culpeper County referred to eight children but only identified six by name. He left 1/3 of his estate and three negroes to wife Ann; his home plantation and two negroes to son Ambrose; 50 pounds hard cash or the depreciation in paper money to daughters Mildred Gaines, Mary Herndon and Anne Kirtley; with the balance of his estate equally to eight children. Sons Ambrose, John and Elliott Bohannon were named executors. The will was witnessed by James Archer, William Kirtley and Julius Gibbs. Incorrect birth years for seven of the children of Elliott Bohannon and Ann Walker, were published without original source reference: Richard, who was born in December 1748, married (1) Elizabeth Blackburn, moved to Woodford County, Kentucky, in 1789, married (2) Catherine Herndon in 1789, went to Floyds Fork of the Salt River in Jefferson County, Kentucky, in 1798, married (3) Deborah Pearce, daughter of George, in Shelby County in 1806, and died in 1815 Mildred, who was born in 1750 and married Robert Gaines Ambrose, who was born in 1752 and married GibbsElliott, Jr., who was born in 1753, married (1) an unidentified wife in Virginia, who died there, moved to Woodford County, Kentucky, in 1789, married (2) Mary (Aylette?), and died in 1824 Anne, who was born in 1754 and married Kirtley John, who was born in 1756 and married Lewis Mary, who was born in 1757 and married Herndon William Pearce was surety on the marriage bond for Richard Bohannon and Deborah Pearce.
