Parkers in Coosa Co in 1850

This 1850 census transcription was supposedly from the Luttrell collection at the B.B. Comer Library in Sylacauga. The Gen web Archivist removed the explanation about the Bible source materials from the info Wanda Crafts submitted. Carolyn Luttrell was a genealogist who did a large amount of work in Coosa and Tallapoosa Counties. The library named has a large amount of information she collected over the years. Bible records are mostly in her Talladega Miscellaneous Families Books -the families had ties to both counties. Carolyn Luttrell” internet search returns many hits, all genealogy or history related.

Some notes I have added, especially about the Parker family. I am continually working to add info to this census. But please prove all information for yourself before taking it as fact. Susan Aldridge

Baker Family Book pages

























Please click on the pictures

Good morning everyone,
I realized I left off some information sent to me by Dee Hall butterflywings@bellsouth.net -some of which was sent to her by Linda Patterson, so here we go again with more information about the Patterson family of Coosa. I included a letter from Linda underneath here. It was indeed I who made the notation about the idea of James A. being possible James Adam Patterson. I made the suggestion on experience dealing with family names. How many people in those days had middle names (sometimes as many as 3 or 4) and never used their first name? many people did that.

Hi Susan, I'm Linda Patterson in Clanton, AL. I was the one who sent some of the material used on the blog to Dee Hall (I sent her the family group sheets and Drucilla Patterson's genealogy letter, which confirmed fact Faithy Knight's maiden name was Baker). My husband's ggg gf was Adam Patterson and his gg gf was James Patterson, whose 1st two wives were Knights (Mary and Elizabeth). My husband descends from James' third wife, Martha Pope. We have hit a "brick wall" on finding Adam's parents. It seems as though the early records of Abbeville, SC have been lost to fire. But I wanted to let you know that our Adam was indeed the brother of William Patterson, who died in Montgomery Co., AL about 1836. I have not personally read William's will, but I had a telephone call from one of his descendants who found it in Montgomery and copied some of the pages (I think it was quite long). It's because of William's will that we know he and Adam were siblings. No other mention of other brothers/sisters were in his will. Dee Hall asked me recently to visit the Coosa County Blog that you wrote on the Knight-Baker families. Now this caught my attention: On the 1850 Coosa Co. census- the Knights, Bakers, and Pattersons all lived next to each other. 516. Patterson Adam 53 SC farmer 500 Milly 52 Felix 11 AL (Minutes 7/601 5 Mar 1862 Albert, Eliza and Jane Patterson minor heirs of Joshua Patterson, their grandfather Adam Patterson gdn. Bond $100 with Milley and Silas Patterson and William Connaway) His full name be James A. Patterson. If so he is the brother in law to Milly Patterson house 259 whose husband William died. ........................... ****** (my notes about this addition... on the original census, the notes added are ("Minutes 7/601....about the minor heirs of Joshua Patterson... and William Connaway)" Did you add the information "His full name (may) be James A. Patterson. If so he is the brother in law to Milly Patterson house 259, whose husband William died." I have never seen Adam's full name on anything. If you made this notation/addition on the census, can you tell me HOW you made the connection between James A. Patterson being our Adam, and being the brother to William. This find/fact could maybe help the family in their research. Just wondering where you may have seen his name as James A. and were able to place James A. and William as brothers. mackandlinda@yahoo.com

John Baker WILL 3 May 1823 Abbeville District SC and probation in April 1824

My interpretation of the will is this:
John Baker was the father of Faithy V. (later Knight), Mary Wallace, Keziah McClennon, Rosannah Wallace, John Baker, William Baker, Joseph Baker, and maybe Elizabeth Baker but am not sure if he meant his wife or a daughter in that part of the will. John´s wife was Elizabeth. Mary, Keziah and Rosannah were already married and had been given large doweries and therefore received only one dollar each in the will. John Baker his son should be executor but a Josiah Patterson Jr. signs a probate statement April 1824. Because I have several pages and I am not sure which page is which- I have put them all here lest I leave something out. They may not be in the right order.

Letter from a descendant-
Susan,
When I first began researching and read the 1890 publication about Noel Baker in De Soto Parish, La., I surmised that the father of Joseph Cannon Baker was William Baker and that the father of Rebecca Knight was Enoch Knight. With further research I found that Richard Lee Knight was Rebecca's father and that Enoch Asbury was her brother; however, until your revelation that John Baker was father of both Joseph and Faithy and that Faithy was Baker and not Parker, I was searching for William Baker as father of Joseph.

From the one page of John Baker's will I find two siblings other than Joseph and Faithy, viz., William and John. John must be the eldest child as he is given 1/2 the property and then named again with Elizabeth (wife or daughter)? and the other children to be given an equal share of the remaining property. Elizabeth had been named earlier as wife.

I am unsure who the Mary Wallice, Rosannah Wallice and Heziah (sp?) McClennon are. They were each give one dollar.

Here I am going to quote from the Biographical and Historical Memoirs of Northwest Louisiana, The Southern Publishing Company, 1890.

"Noel P.(Peyton) Baker is the present efficient justice of the peace in Ward 3, DeSoto Parish, La., and is also engaged in tilling the soil, his plantation, which is seven miles southwest of Mansfield consisting of 160 acres, all of which he has obtained by his own unaided efforts. He was born in Coosa County, Ala., in 1848, and is a son of Joseph Cannon and Rebecca (Knight) Baker, who were born in South Carolina in 1804 and 1807, respectively, their marriage taking place in 1825. They first removed from their native State to Georgia and thence to Alabama, thence, in 1866, to De Soto Parish, La. Mr. Baker died here the following year, having been a member of the Methodist Church, and his widow, who survives him, is also a member. He was a wheelwright and blacksmith and socially was a member of the A. F. & A. M. His father, William Baker, the grandfather of Noel Peyton was born in England and died in South Carolina. Enoch Knight, the mother's father, spent his life in Georgia and died in Alabama. Noel P. Baker is the tenth of eleven children, four sons and two daughters living, and was reared on a farm, receiving a common-school education. He came with his parents to De Soto Parish, and was here married in 1873 to Miss Martha B., daughter of Thomas and Dorinda Lawrence, the former of whom was born in South Carolina and the latter in Alabama. About the year 1857 they came to De Soto Parish, and here Mr. Lawrence passed from life in 1872, his widow dying in 1889, she being an earnest member of the Presbyterian Church. He was a soldier in the Confederate army for four years. Mrs. Baker was born in Alabama in 1856 and her marriage with Mr. Baker has resulted in the birth of five children, two sons and two daughters living. They have resided on their present farm since 1873. Mr. Baker held the office of constable from 1879 to 1883, and since 1883 he has been justice of the peace; is also road and bridge commissioner and was one of the census enumerators of DeSoto Parish, La., for the United States in June, 1890. He is a Methodist and his wife is a Cumberland Presbyterian. "

Noel and my grandfather Julius were the youngest children of Joseph Cannon and Rebecca and probably had heard the names William Baker and Enoch Knight and gave those names in error. Of course the biographical writings are not always accurate (above), but at least, it gives clues for further research.

Posted by: Charles Harrison Date: January 16, 2002 at 07:58:03
of 7547found on www. genforum.com

Will of William Patterson, dated 1 Dec 1836, Probated 10 Jan 1837.
Know by all men present that I, William Patterson, of the State of Alabama, Montgomery County, do will and bequeath all my estate to my wife , Milly, during her life or widowhood, and afterward to be equally divided between all my children (unnamed).
Witnesses: Leonard Marbury, J.M. Horton
Executor: Not named
(recorded in Will Book 2:160, Montgomery County, Alabama)
Marriage 1 Permilia (Milly) UNKNOWN b: 1797 in Virginia Children
  1. Has Children Violettia PATTERSON b: 2 Nov 1811 in SC

letter from Linda Patterson:
Our Adam married Permelia "Millie" Davis.
Her father was Joshua E. Davis (b. 1770 VA and
died 1861 in Abbeville, SC. Joshua is on the
Abbeville censuses 1820-1860). Right above
Joshua on the 1820 census is John G.Patterson,
who appears to be in the "age range" of
Joshua. Adam and Milly were married by 1820,
with several children. Since people usually
married people "close-by" I've always been
interested in this John G. Patterson---but
he kinda "dropped off the radar"---can't track
him on another census. There's several James,
Johns etc. in Abbeville from 1830 on.

I've chased down this Patterson family and
COULD NOT make a connection to Adam and
William at that time. Contacted a descendant
who said there was no Adam in their tree (or
anyone who went to Coosa Co., AL)...
... but if Adam's first name was James....
I'll have to go back into my notes and see
if the family researchers in this family have
anything about their James. Now we think
Adam's brother, William, was older than Adam.
William and Millie had a daughter who we
know was born in 1811 (the oldest
child that we know of--Violetta, who was
the second wife of Ebenezer Pond).

Name: James Patterson
Birth: Abt 1780 - Abbeville, SC (South Carolina)
Parents: Josiah C Patterson Born ABT 1751 in County
Tyrone, Ireland Died in Abbeville Co, SC 5 DEC 1835
married Margaret H. Carson
23 DEC 1779
Location: Abbeville Co, SC

Known Children:
1 James Patterson b abt 1780 SC
probably 1st born son

2 Sarah Carson Patterson
Born 8 OCT 1797 in Abbeville Co, SC
Died in Abbeville Co, SC 3 JUL 1863
Abbeville Co, SC

Marriage to Leonard Widema 24 DEC 1818
Children:
Margaret Carson
Nancy Smith
James Henry
Catharine
Mary S
Martha Ann
Sarah Patterson

3 Mary Carson Patterson b about 1800

Marriage to Abner Perrin ABT 1829 SC (old SC family of
French descent)
Children:
James
William
Sallie
Arthur Lewis
Telemachus Ulysses
Josiah P
Robert Oliver
Abner Mason
Napoleon Patterson
................................

The info below is not correct... James was born
about 1817-1818 in Abbeville and died aft the 1900
census in Coosa Co., AL. That's all of our James'
wives. But Adam was his father. He had a
brother William. (William married Elizabeth
Patterson--his 1st cousin).

James Patterson born Abbevillöe, SC died 1836 -
Montgomery, Alabama
married Mary Knight
Elizabeth Knight
Martha Pope
2 of his sons were Adam and William


About the Coosa Co. censuses. There are at
least 2 sets of Patterson families in Coosa
Co. One set are the ancestors of a former
Alabama governor, John Patterson. Their
ancestry has been traced back to Scotland.
Through oral history Adam and William's ancestors
are supposedly from Ireland. I know it is hard to go back to "old notes"
made years ago, but if you find your notes
about Adam's name being James A., I will be very
interested in where you found his full name.

Thanks again for all your work Susan. Are you related
to any Coosa County families?

In 1810 United States Federal Census > South Carolina > Newberry, Richard Knight and Martha are under 45 and have 5 children at home. Bart Satterwhite and wife are over 45 and have 8 children at home.


In 1820 United States Federal Census > South Carolina > Newberry > Newberry city, Richard Knight has one man born 1795-1802, as well as a man born before 1775 (Richard) and a boy born 1811-1820 and 2 boys 1805-1810. The females are 2 women born 1776-1794, 4 girls born 1811-1820 and 2 girls born 1805-1810. That is Richard and Martha and possibly one married son or daugher along with about 10 children in house. James Wright is also in the district.

Georgia had been kept as Sacred Hunting Land for the Indians by the British, but since they lost the war, they had to turn it over to the newly formed American government which opened it county by county to white settlers. Richard Knight left Newberry and appears in herry Co. GA by 1830 census, probably about 1821 because they had a land lottery that year. In 1830 United States Federal Census > Georgia > Henry, Richard Knight appears as 60 to 70 and Martha is 50 to 60. There is a boy and a girl 10 and under 15, two girls 15 and under 30, so there are only 4 children living in the house. Henry County was created on May 15, 1821 by an act of the General Assembly (Ga. Laws 1821 Extra. Session, p. 3). Dooly, Houston, Monroe, Fayette, and Henry County were created in that order by the Georgia Land Lottery Act of 1821 , which was enacted at a special session of the General Assembly four months after the Creek Indians ceded lands between the Ocmulgee and Flint rivers on Jan. 8, 1821 in the first Treaty of Indian Springs.

Richard's son Enoch Asberry Knight met his future wife Faithie V. Baker in Henry and married there in 5 March 1827. I do not know where they lived because I do not find their ages with the Bakers or with Richard Knight in 1830. They must have gone with another relative to Coweta or Carroll Co. because these counties had opened up one year before the young couple married.

Richard Knight moved to Carroll Co.probably after
Martha Patsy Satterwhite Knight had died 11 January 1834 probably in Henry Co. GA. He moved near where his son had been in the newly formed counties of Coweta and Carroll GA which both opened 1826. Richard appears in the 1840 census Carroll County GA and probably lived close to the Coweta/Carroll County line because his descendants speak of Newnan, Coweta Co. GA which was county seat with a court house. Coweta was named for a tribe of Creek Indians, the Cowetas. It was formed from Creek Indian Lands received in a treaty with the Federal government at Indian Springs, GA in Feb, 1825.

1840 United States Federal Census > Georgia > Carroll > District 713
Richard Knight -he is between 70 and 80, had a male 20-30 and 3 women 20-30.Maybe Richard moved into his son's place while his son moved to Talladega, AL.
Joseph C. Baker- he and wife are between 30 and 40 and there are 6 children between 1 and 14.

Our Enoch Asbury Knight appears for sure in 1840 census Talladega, Alabama. he moved there in 1839 with all their seven children which they had born near Newnan, GA, in either Carroll or Coweta Counties. Enoch was a hard worker and was working on a well in September 1842- 3 years after their arrival- when he was overpowered by a cloud of gas and died. There was Faithy- alone with her seven childen. What to do? She moved in 1843 to be near her brother and other family members, including her father in law at Hatchett Creek. There she could get the moral support from her extended family and community Faithy needed.
