Our Pioneer Ancestors: The Day and Hendrix (cks) Families with Poe and Allied Lines Book II Ruth Hendricks DeVerter. 1963

Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Bracken and Mason Counties, Kentucky. Wayne and Hendricks Counties, Indiana



Abigail Poe, born 4/16/1760, was the 4th child of Edward and Martha Brittain Poe. Her maternal grandparents were John and Elizatbeth Stilwell Brittain of Shewsbury, Monmouth, Co., New Jersey. John Brittain was born 1695 - died 1705. Her paternal grandparents were Prtrick and Abigail Day Poe of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Abigail Day was the daughter of Christopher Day.


On August 1, 1776 Abigail Poe married John Day, son of Mathew Day, who was the son of Christopher Day. This of course, is where our Poe and Day lines cross. Abigail Poe was the great grand daughter of Christopher Day. John Day was the grandson Christopher Day. So Abigail Poe and John Day were 1st cousins, once removed.


Abigail Poe's father, Edward Poe, had served bravely during the Revolution. After living in Maryland for some time, he moved to Bracken County, Kentucky. John Day had also lived in Maryland and moved to Clermont County, Ohio about 1802. I have no record of where John Day married Abigail Poe, but it was in Maryland, undoubtedly, as it is thought that Mathew Day, John's father, after living in Fawn Twp., Shewsbury, York County, Pennsylvania, either moved over into Maryland and died there or that portion of York County, Pennsylvania became Baltimore County, Maryland. The two families, no doubt were well acquainted, and in those early times it was not at all usual for cousins to marry cousins.


.... continue with the family of Edward Poe. His 1st wife Martha Brittain having died in 1770, he married 2nd, Catherine _____, whose surname we do not have.


By Catherine, Edward had two known children, viz: Martha and Samuel, mentioned in his will.

Samuel Poe (10/16/1786 - 2/3/1865 married (1) Mary "Polly" Hook (3/27/1785 - 6/9/1846) They married 3/7/1807 (Recorded in Bracken County, Kentucky). Samuel was born in Baltimore County, Maryland and came to Kentucky with his parents at 10 years of age.

  Also: Franklin County, KY 1850 Census lists Edmund Poe b. 1772 VA (aged 77), wife Nancy b. 1796 VA (aged 58) children Patsy (18) KY, Edmond (12) KY and Susan Brooks (5) KY.

** There can be little doubht that these are the same men found in Amherst County, Virginia in 1785. They appeared that year and so, were not long in Amherst County. Since Virgil Poe enlisted from Spotsylvania County, VA, and is not the brother of John Poe, but grew up near he and brother Jesse, it would seem these men are related to Benjamin Poe and/or Marsom Poe who can be found in Spotsylvania County during the 18th century. Benjamin and Marson were probably sons of Samuel Poe of Essex County (d.1725).

DNA tests of a decendant of Edmund Poe indicate a recent common male ancestor with descendants of Simon Poe, SR (d. 1793) making it nearly certain that this Franklin County, KY Poe family stems from Essex County, VA and probably Samuel Poe who died in 1725. see

The Circling Winds: Delano / Sledge / Thompson / Poe / Graham Family History 1621 - 1990. Thelma Delano Alexander 1990


Note: Be advised that this book makes a number of unsubstantiated claims, particularly about the earlier family of Samuel Poe - some claims are refuted by the records. There is no evidence about who is the father of Benjamin Poe, Revolutionary War soldier, born in Culpeper County, VA in 1749, the forebear of the Poe family in the counties of Warren / Barren / Allen and areas nearby. Very circumstantially, the father parents could be Benjamin Poe and wife Elizabeth, but even this Benjamin is not shown to be the Benjamin Poe, son of Samuel Poe of Essex County (d. 1725). We can be fairly certain, however, that any Poe who comes from Essex / Caroline or Orange /Culpeper / Rappahannok or Spotsylvania stem from the original Poe family that had arrived in Essex County by 1704. That includes Samuel Poe as well as Robert Poe, who died in 1722 (about whom almost nothing is known outside his date of death and that he owned up to 905 acres of land along the Pumensend).


Paraphrasing and summarizing:

Benjamin Poe (1749 Culpeper County, VA - 1839 Allen County, KY) had twin sons Johnson and William born 15 April 1778 as well as at least five other children. Johnson Poe married Elizabeth Tedder in 1804 in Barren County, Kentucky. To this union ten children were born: Amos, Alvin, Stephen, Johnson, Julia M., Benjamin, Jonothan (Java), John (Jack), Comfort and William J. Johson was tall with blue eyes and fair skin. He died in Allen County, Kentucky ci 1859.


Amos, oldest son of Johnson and Elizabeth, was born in 1809 in Barren County, Kentucky. He married Luvicy Graham in 1827. Their children were: Green Berry (great-grandfather of the author), Nancy C., who married a Lightfoot, William J., Fredric J., Sarah, Stephen, Benjamin A., James A. and Luvicy Elizabeth who married William R. Sherr. Amos dies in 1863.


Green Berry Poe, Amos Poe and Luvicy's oldest son, was born September 4, 1828. He married Nancy Franklin Graham in 1857. Their children were Mary Rhea who married James H. Lyon; Margaret (Maggie) John who married George W. Scott: Emma (died as a young child): and Adelaide (grandmother of the author) who married Robert L. Sledge; and Amos who married Mattie Todd.

A different Benjamin Poe lives Franklin County, Kentucky and came from Amherst County, VA where they were in 1784.
