Has Children James Holtzclaw b: 25 Mar 1797 in Kentucky Inputting some of my Thomas notes -- Susannah Thomas/Jacob Holtzclaw -- I have two places for the marriage of Jacob and Susanna, Culpeper and Prince William Co. I would GUESS Culpeper since usually in the home area of the bride but one never knows. Looks like Jacob sold his last land in Culpeper in 1775 and "raised a crop of corn" in Ky in 1776 and able to claim the land at court in 1780. (Lots of Germanna people "raised a crop of corn" in 1776 to claim a stake in the land in KY). Three of Jacob and Susannah's sons married KEMPER girls. Who were the parents of these girls? ? Germanna family/families?. Did any of their other children married Germanna people? This is so much fun. Take care. Marilyn Jacob and Susannah Thomas Holtzclaw lived in Culpeper Co., he was given a deed of gift by her father, John Thomas, in 1760. Jacob was also left land in his father, Jacob Holtzclaw's will of 1759, but he sold it to his brother in law, Jeremiah Darnall, in 1760 and then sold theremainder in 1772. I believe that the Kemper ladies are the daughter of John Kemper, but I need to check my references. It wouldn't surprise me that they are descendants of the 1714 immigrants! Barb Price Dear Germanna Researchers, Someone mentioned Mercer Co., KY and the Holtzclaws, with whom my Kempers of adjoining county Garrard Co., KY intermarried. The Dicks River separates the two counties.

The son Jacob Holtzclaw was born 17 Feb 1738 in Prince William Co., VA and he died in Mercer Co., KY 21 Oct. 1812. His wife was Susannah Thomas b. 10 Oct 1745 d. 10 Oct 1821, the daughter of John Thomas. Jacob and his wife lived in Culpepper Co from 1760 to 1775, moving to Lincoln Co., KY in between 1775 and 1776. He served in the Rev War from Lincoln Co, KY in 1782. The Elijah Holtzclaw that you name is probably Jacob and Susannah's son, Elijah, born 24 Aug 1764 in Culpepper Co., VA and died 12 Oct 1853 in Trimble Co., KY. He married Sarah Collier b. 12 July 1776 in Ireland d. 28 Oct 1854 in Trimble Co., KY in 1801. Barb Price (Hans) Jacob HOLTZCLAW m. Catherine Jacob HOLTZCLAW m. Susannah THOMAS Elijah HOLSCLAW m.

Holtzclaw [variant spellings including Hul...] A Jacob Holtzclaw (generation unknown) entered land on 8 Feb 1780, 400 acres, on Dicks R. (Lincoln Land Entries), page 9, Bk. 1. On the same date, he entered the same amount of land, again on Dicks R. in Jefferson Land Entries, page 9, Bk. 1. His kinsman, Jacob Fishback, on 12 Sep 1780, entered 1,000 acres at "Holsclaw Settlement." Bk 1, page A12. (Comment: "Grants on Dicks' River" lists Jacob Holtsclaw, 400 acres, 1781--Buena Vista or Harmony Church.] [Forrest Calico, HISTORY OF GARRARD COUNTY, KENTUCKY AND ITS CHURCHES p. 205) Holsclaw, along with Elijah Holsclaw appears on the Mercer County Tax List, 1789, when Mercer Co. was still part of Virginia. The Holtzclaws, Fishbacks, and Kempers were intermarried. Holtzclaw's land was later in Mercer Co. KY. According to deeds of Garrard Co. of John Kemper (one of two John Kempers in early Garrard Co.) Kemper bought part of Holtzclaw's land. In other words, Kemper did not enter land of his own. Lincoln Co., KY [then VA] records indicate that Jacob Fishback deeded [indentured] land 15 Nov 1785 to Jacob Holtclaw, Charles Spilman, and William Shoemaker. They all are believed to have been descendants of Germanna Colony settlers. From Mercer Co., KY deed index: Holsclaw [sic], Jacob, grantor; Grider, Henry, grantee, 1788, 1-65. Holsclaw, Jacob, grantor; Holsclaw, Jacob, Jr., 1794, 2S4-40 (?) One other individual who moved at the time of Zacharias Smith was Jacob Holtzclaw, son of 1714 Jacob. Jacob (Jr.) married Susanna Thomas, the sister of Barbara Thomas who had married Jacob Blankenbaker. These women were daughters of John Thomas (Jr.) and granddaughters of Anna Maria (nee) Blankenbaker. Henry Blankenbaker and the wife of Jacob Holtzclaw, Jr. were first cousins. In Mercer County, Ky. in 1795. this child from John Blankenbaker. He claimed he raised a crop of corn in Ky. in 1775.

His first wife was a Thomas according to John Blankenbaker. From: Redpj To: Subject: Re: [GERMANNA] Swope Date: Monday, December 04, 2000 11:47 AM

Submitted by E. W. Wallace a Kemper-Fishback descendant E. W. Wallace asks: Question: Is the Jacob Holtzclaw of Kentucky, who received many early land grants in that area, the son of this Jacob Holtzclaw [the immigrant]? If so, the son Jacob Holtzclaw is listed in Neal O. Hammon's book on Kentucky Land Grants (inexact title) published by the Filson Club. I believe it is very likely that the two Jacobs are father and son. The son married Susanna Thomas and lived for a while in the Robinson River area where his father-in-law, John Thomas, gave him a farm. The son married Susanna just before his father died. John Blankenbaker The fourteen hundred and forty-third note in a series on the Germanna Colonies Jacob Holtzclaw, the son not the immigrant, was introduced in the last note. Let's give a few more words about him. He was born in Prince William County on 17 Feb 1738 and died in Mercer Co., Kentucky on 21 Oct 1812. He married about 1758 Susanna Thomas, the daughter of John Thomas and a Mary unknown. John Thomas made a gift deed of land to Jacob on 20 Nov 1760. Jacob and Susanna lived in Culpeper from about 1760 to 1775. Jacob had land at Germantown but he sold some to his brother-in-law, Jeremiah Darnall, shortly after his father's death in 1760. He deeeded away other land in Fauquier County in 1772. On 20 Feb 1775, he sold the land in Culpeper County that had been deeded to him by his father-in-law, John Thomas. He apparently moved immediately to Kentucky. In 1776, he applied for land in Kentucky, stating he had already raised a crop on it, and he was granted 400 acres in Lincoln Co. 1 Dec 1782. He served in the Revolution in Kentucky including a campaign against the Indians by Gen. Clark in 1782 (we have already mentioned that Abraham Thomas was in this campaign also). I have recently mentioned Adam Smith whose daughter Susanna married Abraham Thomas. Adam had two brothers, Zacharias and John, and the three of them moved to Kentucky about 1777 (at least that the last year of any records in Culpeper County for them). Zacharias married about 1760 Ann Elizabeth Fishback who was the daughter of John Frederick Fishback and Ann Elizabeth Holtzclaw. Remembering that these Smiths had a mother, Ann Magdalena Thomas, the sister of John Thomas and of Michael Thomas, we see another Thomas and Holtzclaw connection. About the same time that Jacob Holtzclaw was raising corn in Kentucky, Zacharias Smith was doing the same. Very likely, they had engaged in this activity together. Zacharias was married twice, the second wife being Sarah Ann Watts. His brother, John, married an Elizabeth but her maiden name is unknown. The third brother, Adam, was married twice and we can say very little about his wives names except the second wife seems to be an Elizabeth. In general, wives and children are very hard to trace in the Thomas family. John Blankenbaker John Blankenbaker wrote, "The fifteen hundred and sixty-fifth note in a series on the Germanna Colonies .. Several of the names that we have discussed in the last couple of notes are interrelated. They are interesting in themselves. You might ask, "What was Joseph Holtzclaw doing in the Robinson River Valley?" This is a good question. His brother Jacob was there with him. They had land among the First Colony people; why did they come down to the area of the Second Colony? I would like to know the answer to this better as it might help me understand the Thomas family better...The Jacob Holtzclaw who married Susannah Thomas moved to Kentucky at an early date. "

Do the groupings listed below who were in Kentucky help us understand the Thomas family? In Kentucky in 1775 - Michael Thomas, his sons (I assume) Henry and Samuel, 3 Harts (does this shed light on who Eva Susanna Margarita Hart is?), Houses, and probably other Germanna names that I don't know enough to recognize. In 1782, Michael Thomas's sons Abraham and Jesse, his niece's husband (Susanna Thomas/Jacob Holtzclaw), some Boones and Yagers are in Kentucky.

I would appreciate any help interpreting these groupings. I am also interested in knowing more about Barnet Neal as Michael Thomas's grandson married a Neal who we know little about. Diane (5g-granddaughter of Michael Thomas) tm Transylvania Company Petitions to the Virginia Convention FORT BOONESBOROUGH: This fort was established in 1775 in current day Madison Co, on the south bank of the Kentucky River. In February of this year, Capt Wm. TWITTY, James COBURN, James BRIDGES, Thomas JOHNSON, John HART, WM. HICKS, James PEEKE and Felix WALKER came from Rutherford Co KY. They traveled on to the Watauga River (Tennessee River) awaiting the signing of the treaty with the Cherokee Indians. Daniel BOONE was then sent into the area as an agent for the Transylvania Company. The men mentioned above under Capt. Twitty and Boone united and proceeded into Kentucky. Those with the Transylvania Company included Thomas HART, Nathaniel HART, David HART, John LUTTRELL, William JOHNSON and James HOGG from Orange Co VA and John WILLIAMS, Leonard Hendley BULLOCK and Col.

The younger Jacob Holtzclaw that you speak of is Jacob Holtzclaw, son of Hans Jacob Holtzclaw and his second wife, Catherine, per BC Holtzclaw. BC states that Jacob, Jr. was born in Prince William Co. on 17 Feb 1738 and that he died in Mercer Co., KY 12 Oct 1812. Jacob marred Susuannah Thomas, b. 10 Oct 1745 d. 10 Oct 1821 in Culpeper Co., VA, the daughter of John Thomas. John Thomas had given a tract of land to Jacob on 20 Nov 1760 in Culpeper Co. and Jacob had inherited land from his father upon his death in 1760,part of which he sold to Jeremiah Darnall, his brother in law, in 1760 shortly after his father's death. He sold the land given to him by John Thomas in 1775 and had sold the rest of the land left to him by his father in 1772, then moved to Mercer Co., KY. He was granted land in Lincoln Co., KY on 1 Dec. 1782 and served in the Rev War that same year. this from Barb Price at Sorry I goofed in sending the last message. The attachment did not make it. So I have incorporated it into this message. I am also including the message as I don't think that was received either. Message: Thanks you very much E.W. Wallace for your message of 05 Jan 2006 when you mentioned a reference in Stafford Co., VA, Deed Bk J:275, to John Fishback, John Hoffman, and Jacob Holtzclaw, all of Stafford County for 1805 acres and 108 perches of land. This deed was dated 13 July 1726 and signed by John Fishback, John Hoffman and Jacob Holtclaw. You then noted that a Patent of 21 Aug 1724 to Fishback, Hufffman, and Holtclaw was mention in a Fauquier Co., Deed Bk 2:124-127 of 23-24 May 1764 between Henry Kemper and Letts his wife, and Jeremiah Darnall on Licking Run. I am happy to inform you and other readers of this Germanna Colonies List, that indeed such a grant was made 22 August 1724 to John Fischback, John Hoffman, and Jacob Holtzclaw. Reference to the patent is Northern Neck Grants A:63 (1722-1726). This patent contains two pages. The first page has no numeral showing. The second page is given the number of 63. [Also, the pages were later to reflect a page number for every page. This patent, with that new numbering is on page 125 and 126.] The significant part of the patent follows. Unfortunately, without being able to use Rich Text, the superscript characters changed. Sorry. You can find the entire patent at Library of Virginia at Google. ------------------------------------------------------- Hoffman, Fischback, and Holtzclaw patent 1724 [Virginia Northern Neck Grants A:63.] ..............Whereas Capt Thomas Hooper late Surveyor formerly made a Survey of a Tract of Land at the Instance and Request of the Germans Seated upon Licking Run One of the branches of Occoquan In Stafford County And Whereas the Said Germans having returned a platt of the said Survey Under the hand of Thomas Barber Surveyor making the Said Survey to Contain Eighteen hun= dred and five Acres and one hundred and Eight perche~ of land and and [sic] the Said Germans now moving to have our grant for the Said landto be patt.
