A short history of our family from the first that landed in America till the present time, as far as I can ascertain----.

John Echols an Englishman came to America about the end of the 16th or the beginning of the 17th Century and settled in Caroline County, Virginia, and married a tall redheaded woman named Mary Cave and by her had five sons and three daughters. I shall begin with his sons first and carry out their family as far as my knowledge extends.

John was his first son who left Virginia a young man and settled in the lower part of N. Carolina and raised his family, of whom I know nothing.

Abraham was old John's 2nd son, married Sarah Tamer and by her had two sons and several daughters. His sons were Joseph and Joshua. Joseph married a Miss King, and by her had 2 sons and 5 or 6 daughters. His sons were Abraham and Jeremiah who left Virginia in time of the Revolutionary War and went to Pennsylvania. Of their offspring I know nothing. Joshua married Hannah Brown, had a number of children of whom I know but little. He had one son Darius, a conspicuous man in Habersham County, Georgia. The rest of his family lives chiefly in the upper part of Georgia. Old Abraham had one daughter who married James Hodges a very worthy man, his family moved to Tennessee. He had one son named Jessee and he had a son named James who was a commanding officer in Tennessee and got drowned in Cumberland River near Cairo. Jessee had one daughter named Tabitha, that is all I know of the family. Old Abraham had another daughter named Sarah who married John Rowden and by her had 4 sons and one daughter. His sons were Abraham, Laban, Josee, and John. Abraham married a woman named Chick, moved to Tennessee. I know nothing of his family. Laban married Milly Adams raised a large family. I know nothing of them only two of his sons to wit, Hubert and Lot, who live in Gwinett County, Ga. Josee married Susannah Adams, moved to Tennessee, of his family I know nothing. John married Milly Brewer, a widow, the daughter of old Jeremiah Reeves,

sister to Rev. Malachi Reeves and Rev. Jeremiah Reeves. He also moved to Tennessee and was drowned in the Tennessee River. Of his family I know nothing. Old John Rowden's daughter was Tabitha. She married Glover Crain, had several children by her and then died. He had one son named Joseph Crane who married a Miss Hood. They had several children, one son named John Glover Crane who was a wholesale merchant in Charleston, S.C. Joshua Crane had a daughter married a Mr. Whitman, a Baptist preacher and a teacher in the Penfield Academy, Green County, Georgia.

P.S. James Hodges daughter married John Lacy. Wm Glass and Hally Shaw Lacy had one son named Elijah and he and wife parted. Glass had 5 sons and 3 daughters. His sons were Hubbard, Mason, Frederick who married Betsy Strother and he was killed by the Indians in Alabama. The other three, David, Elish and Elijah. Mason married a Miss Wyatt and lives in Fayette County, Georgia the rest of his sons I know nothing. His daughters were named Tabitha, Patsy, and Sally. Tabitha married Richard Wood and by him had three sons and one daughter. Her sons were Winston, William and Willis. Her son William represented three different counties in the state of Georgia and was Colo. of the same counties. He then moved to Randolph County, Alabama and represented that county and is Colo. and judge of the court. Willis, her third son married a Miss Cochran and died young. Richard Wood's daughter was named Elizabeth and married Samuel D. Echols. Hally Shaw raised a large family in Jackson County, Georgia. I know nothing of his family only E. B. Shaw, his grandson, who lives in Gwinett County, and is a very eminent Baptist preacher.

P. S. If I mistake not, old Abraham Echols had a daughter who married a man by the name of Hubbard in Virginia. I know nothing further of them.

The third son of old English John Echols was named William. I don't know who he married. He had several sons and daughters. His sons were John and William. John was one of the largest men ever raised in Virginia. He was a Quaker preacher. That's all I know of him or his family as I never saw him but once. William was also a very large man, married a widow Spradlin. By her had three sons and four daughters. His sons were Joel, Elcanah, and William. Joel and Elcanah moved to Tennessee. Settled on Cumberland River near Caro. I was once at Elcanah's house after his death. He had a large family. I know the names of none of them only his youngest son named Richard. They are a very wealthy family. Joel I think they told me had no child. William, the third son, married a girl by the name of Elizabeth Farmer - a schoolmate of mine in Virginia. He moved to Alabama, settled in Madison County near Huntsville and was a very great wholesale merchant in that town. I know but very little of his family. He had a daughter married Richard Holden also a wholesale merchant in Huntsville and also had two sons who moved to Mississippi. One of them was killed by a man and the other wrote to me about it. I think the one that wrote was by the name of Larkin. The one that was killed I think was by the name of Joseph. That's all that I know of that family.

Old William Echols daughters married William Wynne, Vardre McBee and Daniel Williams and Richard Anderson. Of Wynne's family I know nothing as they moved to Tennessee in an early date. Old Vardre McBee moved from Virginia to South Carolina before the Revolutionary War and was a Capt. In that army and was said to have done as much damage to the British and Torries in that part of the country as any Capt. In that country. He had two sons, to wit, Silas and Vardre. Silas was a very large man, went to Mississippi and died there. I know nothing of his family. Vardre still lives in South Carolina, Greenville District. He has six children, only one married, that a daughter, married a Mr. Carson. He has one daughter Malinda single, one son Luther, the rest I don't know their names. He is said to be the richest man in that part of the state. His property is estimated at one million dollars.

Daniel Williams, who married the third daughter of old William Echols, went to Tennessee, raised his family there. Of his daughters I know nothing. His sons were Sampson and Oliver. Sampson was said to be an uncommon smart man, represented his county many years. There is a very fine town in Tennessee named in hone of his name - Williamsburg. Sampson Williams was a very large man, rather cross-eyed. Richard Anderson married old William Echols fourth daughter, had five children by her and she died. I know the names of two of their sons, which were Medy and John. Medy became very rich, owned the first merchant mill I ever saw, on Banister River in Virginia, where was a considerable town built named Medsville in honor of Medy Anderson's name. They both had families of which I know but little.

Joseph Echols was the fourth son of old English John Echols. He never married, consequently had no family. He was an afflicted man, had what was called the asthma which prevented him from lying down. He never lay down for forty years -- had an instrument made that fitted his forehead and sat and slept. His common vocation was hunting and trapping on the River at which business he made considerable property as he lived in the frontier country where game was plenty.

He became a representative of Wilkes County in Senate and was once appointed President Senate pro tem - you can see his name in the digest of the laws of Georgia.

He was a Welchman. Came to America about the beginning of 17th century, married Betsy Holcomb and settled in Caroline County, Virginia. He had several sons and four daughters. Who his sons married I know not. One of his daughters named Caty married Richard Echols - my grandfather. One other named Kitty married Daniel Terry. From them sprang the Colquitt family. One other of his daughters married John Hendrick. From them came the family of Jones, Smith and Ligon. Another of his daughters married Richard Hubbard. From

them sprang the Hubbard family of Oglethorpe County, Georgia.

Old English John Echols had three daughters which I could have inserted had I known enough about them to give any satisfactory account of them. I only know they married outlandish men, one an Englishman named Nicholas Gilington. Of their family I know nothing. The second daughter married an Irishman named Murphy. I know nothing of their family only they had two sons, Joseph and William, that was called the greatest Baptist preachers that ever was known in Virginia of their day. Old English John Echols third daughter married a Scotchman named Marshbank. I know nothing of their family only the family of Deens in DeKalb and Floyd County sprang from that family.

Elizabeth, widow of Francis POSEY, secondly married
John BELAINE who died between 23 May and 3 Nov. 1663 Charles County, Maryland, the dates his will was written and probated.
John BELAINE and Elizabeth had children:
1. Nicholas BELAINE b. 10 Nov. 1658; m. Mary; he d. 1687-1690 Charles Co.,
MD She was born ca. 1665 (age 60 in 1725 deposition); She secondly married Benjamin POSEY ca. 1690.
2. Grace BELAINE m. Giles COLLIAR
On 8 August 1676, Nicholas BELAINE, son of John BELAINE chose John POSIE,
his "Brother-in-Law" to be his guardian, and Grace, daughter of John BELAINE
chose John MOULD and his wife Anne, her "Sister-in-Law" to be her guardian.
At the same time was presented a petition of Alexander SMITH, "who married
ye Relict of ye sd John BELAINE." The petition stated than when he married
her, she had two small children, and that he had brought the said
children up in a decent manner and schooling and they had cost the
petitioner eleven years or thereabouts, and desiring to be on their own,
more by ill council were persuaded to leave him. He asked for satisfaction
due for his labor, care, and pains in bringing up the said children. The
court ordered that the estate of John BELAINE was to remian in the hands
of the petitioner until Nicholas came to age, and Grace arrive to age sixteen
or marriage. (Deeds F1:199)

In January 1679 John MOULD petioned that he had married the daughter of
Francis POSEY, whose widow married John BELAINE, who died possessed of
300 acres of land, besides goods and chattel, and before his death by will
bequeathed one half of his estate real and personal unto his wife and her
two children she had by Francis POSEY to be equally shared among the three,
and the other half to his two children he had by his said wife, and after
the death of John BELAINE, Alexander SMITH married his widow and had the
original will of said BELAINE, so that the petioner supposes there was
never any administration on the estate, nor accounting of his share of the
estate in right of his wife. The Petitioner asked the court to summons
Alexander SMITH to bring in the will and his accounting of the estate.
(MD Test. Proc. 11:100 FHL microfilm 12933)

Some researchers have interpretted the records of Nicholas BELAINE calling
John POSEY his "brother-in-law" as meaning John's wife Susanna was a BELAINE,
daughter of John BELAINE. The above records show that "brother-in-law"
meant half brother. John BELAINE's will had left half his estate to (all)
his children, and the following court records show he had only two chilren,
Nicholas and Grace, and no daughter named Susanna.

The court records state that Francis POSEY and Elizabeth had only two chileren,
who would be Anne (POSEY) MOULD, and John POSEY, who became guardians for their
half brother and sister Nicholas BELAINE and Grace BELAINE. The statement
of there only being TWO children of Francis would dispute claims by some researchers
that Benjamin POSEY was a son of Francis.

JOHN VILLAINE-BELAINE was closely associated with FRANCIS POSEY. For example, he and Francis Posey often bought land together and the two families were closely intertwined. He transported himself to Maryland in 1646, for which he asked the standard 100 acres. His name is spelled many different
ways. In one and the same document he was called both John Villaine and John Burlane.
