Chatham County Records

Lewis Tysor is shown buying land in Chatham County in 1792. No land grant for military service has been found. No further mention of Charles Tysor has been found in that name, but it is considered likely that Augustine Tysor found in Chatham County records as the husband of Lucy Dowdy and heir of Thomas Dowdy may well have been he; perhaps his name was Charles Augustine Tysor. The records show that Augustine and Lucy went from Chatham County, North Carolina and settled in Hamilton County, Ohio. Chatham County records show that Thomas Dowdy had married the widowed mother of Jesse Poe, Sr. probably as 2nd wife. She is believed to have been the 2nd wife of William Poe of Culpeper County, VA*; that her name was Lucy; and that she was the mother of Lucy Dowdy. Lucy Ann Poe, daughter of Jesse Poe, Sr was the wife of Jordan Tysor, Sr. son of Lewis Tysor. One report, without proof, state that Thomas Tysor went to Arkansas - no further record.

The Poe Family:

Samuel Poe (wife Mary)  from England to Essex County, Va. where he died in 1725. His family spread into nearby Caroline & Culpeper Counties. Simon Poe with members of his family from Caroline  County  to Chatham County well before the Rev. War. A short time later, Jesse Poe, his half-brother Benjamin Poe, & Jesse's mother went from Culpeper County , VA to Chatham County.*** Benjamin went west; Lucy the mother of Jesse m. Thomas Dowdy. Jesse m Charity Patterson, dau. of Gilbert Patterson and wife Celia ? There home was on the old Gulf-Cumnock Rd., along George's Creek deep in the woods in front of the present home of Henry L. Oldham. Their. dau. Lucy Ann Poe was the wife of Jordan Tysor, Sr. The Poe cemetery is near the old Poe homes, in good condition. Other smaller Poe cemeteries dot this section of the county. Dr. Clarence C. Poe descends from Jesse Poe, & perhaps through maternal lines also from Simon Poe.

 

 

Newspaper article from July 1930

“Poe Reunion Recalls Famous Man: Gathering at Pittsboro This year Outstanding for Heroic Tales about Jesse, Who Left Virginia to Come to Chatham County in Revolutionary Days” by Myrtle Ellen LaBarr

 

Excerpts from photocopy provided by Sally Cielik. (My comments in parentheses italics)

 

In the closing days of the Revolutionary War, a 12-year-old lad rode horseback behind his mother as they blazed their trail from Culpeper county, Virginia, to establish a new home in the wilderness that had been known as Chatham county only 10 years. On the Glorious Fourth of July of this good year, several hundred (sic) of the descendants of that boy, whose name was Jesse Poe, gathered at Pleasant Hill Baptist church, five miles east of Pittsboro, for their annual reunion

… Rev. W. D. Poe, pastor of the Baptist church at Oxford, made the historical address. Dr. Clarence Poe of Raleigh, editor of The Progressive Farmer, was master of ceremonies.

… A prize of five dollars in gold would be given for the best collections of family relics, papers or documents.

…. Dr. Poe has devoted careful research for many years to tracing the record of his family, which numbers, among its relatives  the Edgar Allen (sic) Poe of literary fame (almost surely not).

… Lord James Bryce, British ambassador to the United States, told Dr. Poe in 1909 that the Poes were an English family that went to Ireland, where they owned rather considerable landed estates, probably after Cromwell’s conquest of the Irish. In England and Ireland, according to Lord Bryce, the name is pronounced Po-e. This was confirmed by the Raleigh editor two years later when he met an English lady in India who insisted on calling him Mr. Po-e because of the common pronunciation of the name in England. the pronunciation of the name is referred to by Sir Edmund Bewley in his 1905 book in the history of the Poe family – county clerk spellings around Virginia belie the comments here, as they attempted to spell the name Po, Pau, Pew, Pow, etc. almost anything but po-ee. It is curious too that the writer of this newspaper article assumes that her readers know how the name is pronounced, and that it is not locally Po-e).

… That the family has always been strictly Protestant is taken by Dr. Poe as furtehr (sic) indication of its English origin. He considers it pretty certain that the family intermarried with the Irish during the century or two that elapsed between the emigration from England to Ireland and the emigration of Poe descendants from Ireland to America. Whether it was the Jesse Poe who settled in Chatham county or his father who came to America, tradition does not seem to be clear (if Jesse Poe and his mother truly came from Culpeper County, Virginia prior to the Revolutionary War, there are several candidates to be his father, all of whom derived from Essex/Caroline County, Virginia starting with Samuel Poe who was there by 1704 and Robert Poe who died in 1722 as well as Katherine Poe who was active by 1722. Jesse Poe likely was a second or third generation Virginian).

… Poe thinks it almost a certainly that Charity Patterson, whom Jesse Poe married about 1791, was of English stock.

… Three of Jesse Poe’s sons married Hackneys, who were also English. Their family coming from Hemel Hempstead, an ancient and beautiful English town 25 miles northwest of London. The Hackney record being with the marriage of Joseph Hackney of Hemel Hempstead, County Hertford, England, on December 17, 1675 – 255 years ago. Later they came to America. Joseph Hackney had a son Joseph who had a son John, born November 23, 1744. John was repudiated by his brethren of the family faith, the Quakers, for marrying outside of the Quaker circle. Dr. Poe cites three entries in the quaint records of the Hopewll monthly meeting:

6-4-1770 – John Hackney is complained of for marrying out.

7-2-1770 – He is disowned, John Berry to read the testimony in meeting and also to send a copy to the place where he is living.

8-6-1770 – The testimony read and recorded. He had gone to Carolina without the approbation of his friends and their married his 1st cousin by a priest or some such way.

… Quaker settlements in North Carolina, notably around Cane Creek, in Alamance county, and at Winston-Salem.

… “I believe two-thirds of the living descendants of the original Jesse Poe are descended also from the Hackneys through his three sons who married Hackneys. And there are a good many of these Poes and their offspring. On of the first Jesse Poe’s grandson, Tom, son of Hasten Poe and Bets7y Hackney, who married in 1853 – had 16 children. Up toe the 1927 reunion, there had been reported 99 grandchildren, 87 great-grandchildren, and five great-great-grandchildren – 192 descendants in a 74 year period ( as a side note, the newspaper reports of the death of Simon Poe, Sr. make mention of the great number of living descendants – 184 as I recall).

… Dr. Poe tells an interesting story about the final illness of an old uncle by marriage, Daniel W. Riddel, who formerly lived in sight of the Poe homestead, five miles from Gulf.

…. “Just how young Jesse Poe passed his youth in Revolutionary Chatham and in the pioneer life of the years that followed, we do not know, nor do we know just when his father died, or what was his relationship to the Poes, also of Culpeper, who became Revolutionary soldiers in Chatham. Nor have I yet been able to learn the given name of his father or mother, though the latter may possibly be available in some tradition of the Dowdy family. His mother later married a man of that name, by whom this first Jesse Poe had a half brother Thomas Dowdy, long a leader in May’s chapel church, as shown by Purefoy’s old History of the Sandy Creek Baptist association, published about 1858.

               “At any rate, the first Jesse Poe does not appear as having been the head of a household  by the 1790 census of Chatham county, though he was evidently contemplating such an estate at that time. About 1791, and quite likely on the very hill where the old homestead stands, he married Charity Patterson daughter of Gilbert Patterson. Gilbert Patterson was probably a brother of the Mark Patterson who was an outstanding Revolutionary soldier from Orange county. Gilbert had a son who went to Henderson county, Tennessee. The land on which the Poe homestead stands was owned by this Gilbert Patterson, who had his home there. It was then inherited by this Mark Patterson and by him sold to Joseph Poe in 1831, the 280 acres selling for the doubt normal price in those days of $1 per acres. Gilbert Patterson and his wife, whose descendent of the fifth generation I am, and whose descendents of the seventh and eight generations are living and were probably represented at the reunion last week, are buried in the old cemetery on the hilltop beside the homestead. Tradition says that great-great-grandmother Patterson was from Montgomery county, and that she had gone by horseback on a visit to relatives there, when her husband sickened and died just before her return. The census of 1790 lists the household of Gilbert Patterson as consisting of two males over 16 years of age, eight under 16, six females, and one slave.

               “Of the sons, I know nothing except what I have just said of Mark, and a tradition about a son Balaam.”

               ... [Charity Patterson] was probably born during the Revolutionary period and died in 1848.

               ... Jesse Poe is described as being of medium size, strong, active, clean-shaven, industrious, prudent in his business, kind to his family, and exceptionally kind to his slaves...

               Register of Deeds C. C. Poe, of Pittsboro, reports finding in the records of his office a grant and two deeds to Jesse Poe. the land grant is dated November 4, 1801 and for 50 shillings. Benjamin Williams, governor, captain-general, and commander-in-chief at the new capital at Raleigh, granted Jesse Poe 107 acres on Deep River. A deed from Icalca Pattishall to Jesse Poe transfers 42 acres from Luke Patterson to Jesse Poe.

               Mrs. Alice E. Brown, an aged aunt of Dr. Poe, told him that Jesse Poe sold his land on Cedar creek and that she believed he invested the proceeds in slaves. A penniless lad when he went to Chatham county, the papers reporting the settlement of his death show that he had acquired by his own enterprise, 880 acres of land, 26 slaves, including  four listed with their mothers, besides personal property. His slaves property alone was valued at $18,020 at the time of his demise, quite a tidy sum for the hill country of Chatham.

               ... "The first child, Lucy, afterwards Mrs. Jordan Tysor, was born March 22, 1792. As the sons and daughters went out from the old home some of them settled in the near neighborhood and some joined the gener (cut off)  . . .    Beverly each about one mile away while in between the Joseph Poe tracts and the old James Poe tract was the home of the daughter, Jane, who had married Franklin Hatch."

               Dr. Poe tells us that the vigor, strong will, and resourcefulness of the first Jesse Poe is shown by his refusal after his wife's death in 1848, when he was 80 years old, to leave his farm and slaves or call in any of his married children to live with him.  For 11 years longer he carried with his trusted slave overseer and the visits of his nearby children. He sent for Dr. Poe's grandfather to administer corporal punishment to a slave on the quite infrequent occasions when that was necessary. He died February 15, 1859.

               ... It was by horseback that my grandfather, Joseph Poe, ant to Georgia, where he spent a year . .  By horseback, too, from Georgia came Rachel Marsh after a visit there, taking two weeks for the trip - she who was later to marry the second Jesse Poe.

               ... The original list of slaves owned by Jesse Poe at the time of his death sows how human beings were valued when it was still thought right to regard them as property. One or two of the younger ones are said to still be living. The list follows:

"Lucinda and child Isaac, aged 46 years, $533: Tempy, 44 years, $100: Isaac, 40 yers, $666; Nancy and child John, 36 years, $716. Louisa and child Elias, 29 years, $883; Carolina and child Martha 23 years, $986; Winney, 22 years, $300; Boatswain, 20 years, $966; Manuel, 19 years, $1,000; Bob Wilson, 16 years, $941; Mary, 13 years, $800; Toney, 13 years, $800 Adelina, 10 years, $625; Minerva, 9 years $483; Noah 6 years, $455; Betsey, 10 years, $591;Hutson, 7 years, $300; Orren, 6 years, $441; Westley, 6 years, $460; Franklin, 4 years, $484; Sam, 4 years, $316; and Harriett, 3 years, $275. Total. $13,920."

               ... Jesse Poe closed his eventful career of more years February 15, 1859. the end of an era.

Grave #14

Also listed in North Carolina Civil War Soldiers

Yadkin Valley News 8 June 1893

William Poe of Chatham Co. died at the Soldiers Home in Raleigh on Tuesday of last week, about 70 years old. He was a member of the Chatham Rifles, the first Military company raised in that county at the beginning of the late war.

 

30 April 1893

N of another Sensation comes from Chatham, the home of rabbits and the resort of run-away couples. This time a man named Grant Poe deserted his wife and 5 children and ran away with the wife of Ely Beall, who left two children. They have not yet been captured.

 

 

Poe Marriages:  Chatham County, North Carolina Marriage Index, Book 1, 1851-1902.

[rev. 15 Sept. 2006]

 

Transcribed from the book at the Register of Deeds office in Pittsboro.   There is no copy of the original returned marriage license/certificate on file there for any marriage until 1877 (one surviving license for that year).  For many years after that, the files of licenses are largely incomplete.   Any entry after 1877 marked N. L. means that I could not find a license.  The only information available is that entered in the index book itself.

 

The entries in the index for the earliest marriages give the names of the bride and groom, the minister's name, the date, and a reference to "Marriage Book 1" and "Marriage Book 2".  These books survive, but give no other information.

 

Beginning about 1873, the information given in the index included the names and ages of the bride and groom, the name of the person performing the marriage, the date and place (usually township or a residence) of the marriage,, and the names of the witnesses.  It does not include the names of the parents.  (Tough luck for those with missing licenses.)  If I did find a license, I'm giving the name of the parents of the Poe individual  and the names of any witnesses named Poe.  The register has a groom's index only.  I went through the bride's column looking for Poe names and hope I didn't miss any.  They are listed below the grooms' list, alphabetically by the first letter of the groom's name. 

 

I have done my best with the various handwritings, but freely admit that there may be transcription errors, especially for single initials.

 

For some couples, I have added notes referring to other documents that MAY more fully identify the couple.  These are suggestions for research only.  All census references are to Chatham County.

 

If a license does exist, get a copy.  It will supply more detail.
