They had 3 children.

2.       Hazel Mae (my mother) was born on 21 March 1930 and was married to Donald Ray Anderson on 4 September 1948. Don was born on 1 July 1926 in Seattle WA. His parents are Albert Anderson, from Norway and Magdela (Malla) Lillevik also from Norway.

I will try to get better dates for Clyde as far as birth and exact death as well as marriage. I’m not very close to that part of the family.
Velma’s daughter Connie is much Closer to Phillip and Susan’s age and I will try to get her birthdate.

SARAH POINDEXTER 1665 _VAUGHAN

Connections to NE of Richmond, VA or to Hopkinsville, KY
Date: Tue, 15 Jul 2014 15:35:58 -0400

One reference to John V Vaughan 1665 and that seemed to point to the John Vaughan that married Sarah Poindexter.  Also found reference that Sarah Poindexter married James Vaughan. I think there mush have been two Sarah Poindexters involved. 

Starting with the John Vaughan / Sarah Poindexter and moving forward  there are  marriages with Ladd, Crew, Wadel, Shields and perhaps the others.  The old Quaker MM that was in Charles City County is close to where Ladd,s store was  and just north of the James River.

Some of the Poindexter family moved just west of current day Hanover. There is a road off 33/54 called poindexter road or something like that.

We have DNA testing now that says these lines are very close, indeed close, William T Vaughan (your line) John
Vaughan (my line) and Timothy Vaughan born 1704. I have not found any proof but lost of folks are connecting William T, Timothy, and John as the children of John who married Sarah Poindexter.

Another line of wishful thinking attempts to link through the line that was in NC, then path of SW Virginia and ending it around Grayson VA.  I looked into this line and they actually did little moving the county/State  boundaries changed around them.  There was a William, James, and John in this line but I so far am unable to say that the John in that line is the one that married Sarah Poindexter.

Did a little research on river traffic and found that around current Surry and south/west the rivers that feed the Chesapeake and those that have an outlet around Roanoke Island are very close. In the 1600s these feeder creeks and rivers provided water ways for travel and transport. After the trees were cut and large amounts of land were tilled the feeder creeks and small rivers silted up.

Last week in a casual conversation I discoverer that there is a bunch of Vaughan folks in Tazewell VA. These seemed to be from NC and Grayson.

Thanks,

Reggie Vaughan

Subject: Connections to NE of Richmond, VA or to Hopkinsville, KY
I am trying to connect some dots to zero in on some ancestors. Would you contact me if you have any info and especially DNA connections to….
 
1.       Bourn, Poindexter, Shields, Hudgins, Marot, Napier, Benkskin, Hopkins, Rice, Ladd, Crew, Purrington,  Waddel, or Vaughan’s in New Kent, Hanover, Charles City County, Goochland, or nearby counties in Virginia around or before 1725?
2.       I know that some Bourn/Bourne’s from there settled in Grayson. Are you connected to any of the other names in #1 that you know were in Grayson/Wythe/Montgomery after 1725?
3.       Does anyone have connections to John V Vaughan b. 1665 in New Kent, Virginia.
4.       I am looking for anyone with family connections to Hopkinsville, KY (Christian County) prior to 1865. Especially I am interested in the families of Samuel Johnson, Anderson, or Vaughan who owned farms in that area. Any one or all of these three families may have connections to Surry, NC and to the New Kent, Hanover, Charles City County, Virginia areas.

WALTER HARP

The good news is that I do have information on this Harp family.
Basically I believe Walter Harp is descended from Thomas Sr. & Abigail
Harp. Thomas was b. ca 1787 NC (1850 census), d. bet 1850 & 1860 census
prob. in Madison Co, AR. He made the same moves as the other Harps and I
believe he was possibly a brother or cousin of John Harp. He was listed
on the 1812 Warren Co, TN Tax List, and is mentioned in plat records there
in 1825 & 1826. He is on the 1830 Warren Co, Tn census and the 1832
Warren Co, TN Tax List. He went to Washington Co, AR by the 1836 Tax List and possibly was there earlier as his youngest daughter lists her birth as
ca 1833 in AR. Madison Co, AR was created out of Washington Co, AR in 1836 and so he is listed in Madison Co, AR thereafter - 1837 & 1838 Madison Co,
AR Tax Lists; in 1839 purchased land in NE, SW, Sec 3, Twp 18, Rng 26 of
Madison Co. He is on the 1840 & 1850 Madison Co, AR census record and is on Madison Co. Tax lists up through 1856.

              From census records, I have the following children:

1. Sarah Harp b. ca 1815 m. Abner Bohannon (The death certificate of
their son, John Bohannon, listed his parents as Abner Bohannon & Harp)

2. unknown female Harp b. ca 1815-1820

3. unknown female Harp b. ca 1815-1820

4. Henry Harp b. ca 1822 TN

5. Agnes Harp b. ca 1824 TN

6. Thomas Harp Jr. b. ca 1825, m. ca 1844 to Martha J. McGinnis b. ca
1826 IL

7. Jane Harp b. ca 1827 TN

8. Hardy Harp b. ca 1830 TN d. 13 Sep 1870 (Pension records) m. Juda
McCarver b. 9 Mar 1832 TN, d. 11 Jun 1914 Madison Co, AR

9. Ruth O Harp b. 1833 AR m. N. M. Wahlquist

One of the unknown daughters above could be Phebe Harp ? who is mentioned in Union United Baptist Church records with Thomas & Abigail in 1841.

6. Thomas Harp Jr. b. ca 1825 is listed as Thomas Harper on the 1850
Madison Co, AR census. He is on various Tax lists and land records in
Madison County. In 1860 he is on the Washington Co, AR census. Children
of Thomas Harp Jr. & Martha McGinnis:

1. William Alexander Harp b. 23 Jun 1845 (pension record) or 23 Jun 1840

than a month being 95 years of age. His remains were interred in
Rockhouse Cemetery near where he had resided most of his life. The
funeral was held under direction of the Masonic Fraternity and was
directed by Bruce Brashears, undertaker of Huntsville. Mr. Harp was the
father of thirteen children, nine of whom survive him.

Walter Edward Harp was b. 28 Apr 1895 (father's pension), or 28 Apr 1894

I hope this helps your friend. I have much more I could send, but this is
an overview.
