Date: 27 Jun 2000

This is an attempt to distinguish the family of Revolutionary War Veteran Silas P. & Phoebe (Worth) Wooten from the family of Anne (Unknown) Wooten-Stotts and her unidentified husband from Surry Co., NC. There were two seperate Wooten and/or Ooten families who settled in the Tug River Valley in Eastern Kentucky and Southwestern Virginia in the early 1800's who have been misconstrued and/or misidentified. One family was headed by the Revolutionary War veteran Silas P. Wooten born 1759 and his wife Phoebe Worth. The other family was headed by a woman whose first name was Anne born 1776 and whose maiden name is unknown. Her husband's surname was Wooten and remains unidentified. He was possibly Thomas Whootan, III who was born in Surry Co., NC, where Anne married her second husband John Stotts before coming to the Tug River Valley. The following family groups should be able to lessen the confusion. First Family: Silas Penix Wooten was born 1759 in VA. He died Feb. 25, 1846. He was a Revolutionary War veteran. He was married to Phoebe Worth. They had 7 or more children. Children: 1. William Lewis Wooten: Born abt. 1785 Married July 24, 1817 Floyd Co., KY Spouse: Millie Burgess 2. Rhoda Wooten: Born 1788 NC Died Aug 1855 Johnson Co., KY Spouse: Adam Bowen 3. Goorge W. Wooten: Born abt. 1800 Married Mar. 5, 1820 Floyd Co., KY Spouse Mary "Polly" Bannister 4. Rebecca Wooten: Born 1804 KY 1st Spouse: Nathan Blevins Date: Jan. 30, 1824 Floyd Co., KY 2nd Spouse: Berry Pack Date: Feb. 9, 1840 Lawrence Co., KY 5. Silas G. Wooten: Born 1804 OH 1st spouse: Sarah Adams Date: July 2, 1821 Floyd Co., KY 2nd Spouse: Keziah Ward Date: 1827 Floyd Co., KY 3rd Spouse: Julina "Julia" Chapman Date: 1833 Lawrence Co., KY 6. Elizabeth Wooten 1st. spouse: John Anderson Date: Dec. 5, 1814 Floyd Co., KY 2nd possible spouse: Jesse Bradley Date: Jan. 13, 1818 Floyd Co., KY 7. Thomas Alfred Wooten: Born Aug. 1, 1808 VA Died 1880 Wayne Co., WV 1st Spouse: Sarah Jane Castle Married Aug. 1, 1827 Lawrence Co., KY 2nd Spouse: Mariah Chapman ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2nd Family: ?Thomas Whootan, III b. abt. 1760 died bef. 1820 NC. He was married to Anne Unknown b. 1776 NC died after 1850 IN?. Children: 1. Levi (W)ooten: Born Nov. 10, 1798 NC Married: Aug. 9, 1820 Floyd Co., KY Died : 1854 Clay Co., IL Spouse: Alpha Omega Taylor 2. Nancy (W)ooten: Born 1801 NC Married Dec. 27, 1817 Floyd Co., KY Died after 1850 Spouse : Alexander Coleman 3. Jordan (W)ooten: Born Jan. 28, 1803 NC Married 20 April 1823 Pike Co., KY Died 1850 IN Spouse: Dorcas Williamson 4. Silas P. (W)ooten: Born abt. 1805 NC Married Feb. 12, 1827 Pike Co., KY Died after 1830 Spouse: Elizabeth Williamson After Anne's first husband died in NC, she later married John Stotts abt. 1810 in Surry Co., NC and moved to the Tug River Valley and had additional children with him also. Afterwards, Anne and her children including Levi, Nancy & Jordan were living in Indiana by 1840. Her son Silas P. was already deceased by then and his children remained behind in the Tug River Valley with his widow who later remarried. While Anne and her children were all in Indiana by 1840, the children of the revolutionary war veteran Silas P. Wooten & Phoebe Worth remained in the Tug River Valley. This obviously suggests they were two seperate families since they both eventually lived so far apart. Regards, Dorsey Jude, Jr. (JudeofOh@aol.com )

Just wondered if anyone has any information regarding a "Moderica McKinney" that appears as a relative on the LDS site for many of the Murphys of the Russell Co. VA, Pike Co.KY, Logan, WV and Caswell, NC areas. Her name appears on several records for my ancestor Edmond Murphy (b. 1803 est. in Russell, Pike or Caswell) and on some of his children's records. In addition, her name is on a birth record for Achibald Debow Murphey in Caswell, NC. I have suspected that Edmond and his family were a part of the Caswell migration, but have not been able to "locate" his parents. Family legend has is that there was an Edmond Murphy Sr. who came over from Ireland with his brother. However, there is a connection with Gabriel Murphey and Clarissa Herndon Murphey as well. Edmond is in the 1830 Logan Co. census with their son John, Herndon (not proven but possible son) and a Quinton. Edmond names his first born son Gabriel and a daughter Clarissa. Any information regarding this mysterious "Moderica McKinney" or any of the above Murphys would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Stacey Murphy Wilner

In the 1900 Mingo Co.WV. Census, listed in the household of Mont Runyon & Martha Starr is Susan Thompson, Mother of Martha. This would indicate that Susan (Dempsey) Starr married a Mr.Thompson after her divorce from Lorenzo D.Starr, and after the birth of Vina Susan Starr in March 1885. This area was, of course, part of Logan County during this period. My question to the list is this: does anyone have any knowledge of the details of a marriage between Susan (Dempsey) Starr & a Mr.Thompson?
