HUNTER, HUNTERS, JOHNSON, WEST posted by Chris Briley on Sunday, June 3, 2001
  • Email:

    I have posted this query in 2 parts over the past two years - thought it might be a good idea to refresh it. I am anxiously trying to learn more about my gggggrandfather, Lewis HUNTER. Lewis was born in Virginia about 1785, according to Sumner County, TN census records. He married Phebe WEST and migrated to Sumner County, TN around 1806. He lived the rest of his years in Tennessee and many dozens of his descendents still live in the area. Lewis HUNTER may have been related to the HUNTERS of Louisa and/or Goochland County, VA. He came to TN in the company of Lucy HUNTER JOHNSON and her husband, Richard, as well as Elizabeth HUNTER JOHNSON and her husband, George H. JOHNSON. These folks were from Louisa County. There are records of a Lewis HUNTER in neighboring Goochland County prior to 1806 (1 record as a bondsman in a marriage and 1 tax record), but I'm having a great deal of difficulty tying him to any other person. If anyone has any record of a Lewis HUNTER from this time frame, please e-mail me. I know nothing of his parents, siblings or exact place of birth. Any information will be appreciated!

    I e-mailed you about a year ago concerning Gibsons Mill, the mixed-race community that once existed around the site of Gilbert Gibson's 18th-century mill on the South Anna River. Since then it appears I'm going to expand this into a book-length project. I was able to track down most of the folks who were part of the 1835 "exodus" to southeastern Ohio, and interview descendants there. The remnant formed Forest Hills Baptist Church after the Civil War. I assume there are still descendants in the area. Emma Turner of Parkers Ford, Pa., whose parents left the community in the 1900s, is currently hunting some up for me. I would like to register the surnames under my name, just in case folks come looking? They are: BRANHAM, COLLINS, COOPER, DALTON/DOLTON, DOLES, DONATHAN, GIBSON, HOLMES, LANDERS, LEMAY, NAPPER/NAPIER, SPROUSE, THACKER, TWOPENCE/TUPPENCE, TYREE. Of these, Gibson & Branham I guess are the two "original" surnames. Landers, Dalton, and Lemay married into the Branhams. Napper/Napier, Sprouse, and Thacker are white families that at various points associated with and/or married into the community. Collins, Cooper, Donathan, Tyree, and Twopence are mixed-race families that lived in/near the community in the 1700s. Holmes and Doles are two interrelated families that lived nearby and went to OH with the others. I should note that not all of these families were "mixed"--only certain branches of the Thackers and Sprouses, for instance--as well as the fact that we don't really know what the "mix" was. Certainly their race was already in question by 1745, when a case dragged the Gibsons, Branhams, Donathans, and Collinses, as well as one member each of the Bunch and Hall families, into Louisa court. I'd be glad to correspond with anyone on any of these names! After several weeks of research at LVA and in Ohio my file is now huge.
