Walton Family, continued (page 6)

The children of Robert Walton (II) and Mary Hughes, four children

The “Signer” and his Siblings (continued)

Sarah (Sally) Walton was the third child of Robert Walton and Mary Hughes.   She was born 1746, and died 20 Nov 1805 in Kentucky.    After her father’s death in 1750, her uncle George Walton was appointed her guardian.    Her mother Mary Hughes Walton died 24 Nov 1760, at which time Sally went to live with her aunt and uncle, Martha Hughes & George Walton.   Uncle George Walton and Tucker Woodson were executors of Robert’s estate, and George submitted a list of orphan Sarah Walton's expenses from July 1761 through 1764.  She married twice, first to Thomas Watkins and second to the Rev. Joshua Morris.   Sally Walton Watkins Morris died on Nov. 20, 1805 in Kentucky.  

Notes of Mrs. E.  Richards:      Sarah "Sally" was the daughter of Robert Walton (son of Robert Walton and Frances Sherwood) and Mary Hughes (daughter of Robert Hughes and his wife Martha Morton).  The couple lived south of the James River in what was then Goochland until 1748-49 when it became Cumberland.  Robert was a surveyor and, apparently, an investor in land.  He made his will on February 27, 1746 but was still alive on Sept.5, 1749 when he wrote a codicil.  In the Feb. 1746 will, he named two sons, John and Robert in that order, and spoke of another child his wife was expecting.  In the September, 1749 codicil, he named his children John, Robert and Sarah and again spoke of a child his wife was expecting.  From these two documents, it is known that Sarah, called Sally, was born in 1746 and that the last child, who was named George, was born late in 1749 or early in 1750.  So, fortunately, we can have a fairly certain birth year for Sarah "Sally" Walton of 1746 and a birth place of Goochland Co., VA although that area became a part of  Cumberland Co. before Sally was three years old.
      Sally was about four years old when her new baby brother George was born and when her father died.  There has been no written proof found as to the exact date of the Walton children's births nor of their father's death but he was dead by June of 1750 when his will was proved and recorded.  The four children apparently continued in the care of their mother on the home place, even after she married her second husband John Winfrey on April 37, 1752.  However, in 1757, entries in Cumberland Co. Order Book # 2 record the appointment of Tucker Woodson (the children's uncle) as guardian to John Walton, orphan of Robert Walton dec'd, of Robert Hughes (the children's uncle) as guardian to Robert Walton, orphan of Robert Walton dec'd, and of George Walton (the children's uncle) as guardian to Sally Walton and George Walton, orphans of Robert Walton, dec'd.
It is fairly obvious that the children's mother had died by May of 1757 when these appointments were made.  From that date through several years, lengthy Guardianship Reports can be read in Cumberland Co. Will Book 1.  From these reports, one can see that the children were well clothed, educated and well cared for.  
      Sally and her younger brother George apparently moved from Cumberland Co. to live with their Uncle George and Aunt Martha Walton when their mother died. There are deed records which show Uncle George as living in Lunenburg Co., in Charlotte Co., and in Prince Edward Co. at various times.  When Sarah "Sally" Walton was married to Thomas Watkins Jr. on Feb. 6, 1762 in Prince Edward Co., her uncle George Walton gave his permission as guardian to the marriage since she was minor.
      When Robert Walton, Sally's father, wrote his original will, he left land and slaves to both of his sons named in the will stipulating that if the child his wife was then expecting should live, that the son Robert was to share his slaves with the new child .
     When the codicil was written, that stipulation was not changed and a further grant of slaves (my two new slaves) and a sum of L 200 current money was left to be shared between Sally and the expected new child (little George) when they married or came of age.  Besides these specific bequests, Sally was to share with her brothers in whatever lands were left in the hands of the executors.  In June of 1764, Sally and her husband Thomas Watkins, Jr. filed suit in Chancery Court, Cumberland Co. against Uncle George Walton and Tucker Woodson, the two executors of the estate of Robert Walton, dec'd.  The Bill of Complaint and the Answer made by George Walton make it plain that Sally and Thomas wanted the estate to turn over Sally's share of the money and her share of the slaves while executor George Walton wanted to wait, seemingly until the youngest child was older.  The case was continued over and over again until finally, in Feb. of 1769, it was dismissed by consent of the parties.  No explanation of what kind of arrangements were made to achieve the consent is included in the suit.
      As written in the Thomas Watkins, Jr. portion of the narrative above, Sally and Thomas appear to have lived in Cumberland (Powhatan area) for a few years after they married and then moved into the Bottom's Bridge, south side of the Chickahominy River area of Henrico Co.  Their first two children Robert the oldest son and Thomas were probably born in Cumberland while the other children were born in Henrico.  Sally was a young 15 or 16 year old when she and Thomas married and when he died, she was only 31 or 32.  Thirty-two years old, a widow with seven children, the oldest no more than 15 and Isaac, the youngest, was a one year old.  In 1772, Sally's brothers began a process to divide the lands still left in the hands of the executors and to settle up their father's estate.  Sally was named in each of the brother's documents as a party to share the estate.  It is to be hoped that the monies accrued from the settlement gave the Watkins family something to fall back on when Thomas' tragic death occurred.
    Sometime around 1779, Sally married her second husband, Joshua Morris, the pastor of the Boar Swamp Church.  The narrative on Thomas above details land purchases made by Joshua Morris of land adjoining the Watkins estate.  The deeds were dated 1779 but whether Joshua had married Sally before or after the land purchases is not known.  Joshua Morris and his wife Sally had four children, the two youngest dying as babies.  The two children who lived to adulthood were John H. Morris b 1780 who married Delia Hogland and Elizabeth Morris b 1782 who married Benjamin Craig, Jr. (from the Morris family's own research)
In March of 1787, a suit was brought in the Chancery Court of Henrico Co., VA by Joshua Morris and his wife Sarah and Thomas, Claiborne, George, Anderson, Mary Hughes and Isaac Watkins against the Watkins children's oldest brother Robert to have the property in Hanover Co., VA that was bequeathed to Robert, Thomas and Claiborne in their father's will, be divided between the three sons and, secondly, to have three lots in Richmond City that were in the estate be divided between all the children and their mother.  The terms of the will stated that the Hanover property was to be divided when Robert came of age.  Since Sarah and Thomas Watkins were married in February of 1762, the oldest child Robert can be given a birth date of 1763-4.  Using that date, Robert was between 23 and 24 at the time, so the division in 1787 would be permissible.  The will also allowed for all property not allotted elsewhere to be divided equally between all the children and the widow.  The answer to the bill by the plaintiff agreed to the division of both pieces of property.  The Chancery Suit papers contain drawings of the way the both parcels of property were divided.  
      The Thomas Watkins Jr. will is different from some wills written in VA in the time period in that his wife was given property for her lifetime and after her death, it was to be given to a certain child.  Often, wills were written saying the wife was loaned the property for her natural life or widowhood, meaning that if she married again, the property would go at the time of her marriage to the child or children designated.  Since this was not true in Thomas' will, Sally had full possession of her part of the land as long as she lived despite her second marriage.  According to some excellent research by the Morris Family available on the Internet and historical information on Richmond's First Baptist Church, Joshua Morris met with a group of Christian believers in Richmond City, VA in June of 1780 and the group organized the Richmond Baptist Church with Rev. Morris as their pastor.  He bought a one-half acre of land in Richmond in 1783 and appeared on the Tax Rolls in 1786.  The Morris family must have been living in Richmond City but just what happened to the Bottom's Bridge property out in the country is unknown at this point.  Joshua Morris continued as pastor of the Richmond church until about 1786 according to the church history.  The Chancery Court suit brought by the Rev. Morris, his wife and her Watkins children against the oldest Watkins son Robert was begun in Feb. of 1787 and concluded in June of 1787 at which time Thomas Watkins Jr.'s will was re-recorded , clearing the way for property to be sold.  The Morris research has found that Joshua Morris sold some land on Shockoe Hill in Sept. of 1787 and the property bequeathed to his present wife by her first husband in Dec. of 1787.  
      The Morris research also has established that Joshua Morris and his wife moved to Kentucky in 1788.  Their two children, John H. and Elizabeth Morris moved with them as did the two youngest Watkins children, Mary Hughes and Isaac Watkins.  Mary Hughes Watkins married Lewis Nuckols on March 11, 1790 in Jefferson Co., KY and Isaac Watkins married Paulina Thurston on Aug. 10, 1803.  Paulina died in 1805 and Isaac married second Maria Toncray.  Joshua Morris lived in Franklin, Jefferson and Shelby Counties in KY and in 1798, moved to Carroll Co., which was then part of Gallatin Co.  In about 1801 he moved to Nelson Co., KY.  He preached and helped to organize churches in all these areas.  Sally Walton Watkins Morris died on Nov. 20, 1805 according to several researchers and was buried at her son-in-law Benjamin Craig Jr's farm in Carroll Co., KY that had been originally the Joshua Morris farm.  All the graves in the cemetery were moved to another location and only her footstone with the initials SM remains.

The children of Sally Walton and Thomas Watkins are discussed in greater detail under the Watkins Family.

Sarah (Sally) Walton Watkins and Rev. Joshua Morris had the following children:

1)   John H. MORRIS of Illinois (b.3 Feb 1780-Virginia)
 | sp: Delia HOGLAND
2)   Elizabeth "Betsey" MORRIS (b.1781-Virginia)
 | sp: Benjamin (Jr.) CRAIG (b.21 Sep 1777 m.1799 d.1 Jan 1847)
3)  Samuel MORRIS (b.10 Apr 1784-Virginia d.1791)
4)  George MORRIS (b.8 Jan 1786-Virginia d.1786)
sp: Margaret "Peggy" PENDLETON (the widow Slaughter-Lightfoot) (she had one son:  Pendleton Lightfoot)

The Rev. Joshua Morris had been previously married to Lucy, and had 2 children by that marriage:    1)  Robert MORRIS, and 2)  Mary "Polly" MORRIS (b.2 Aug 1777) who married John Linville BOONE.  

Joshua helped begin 4 churches in VA, including the First Baptist Church at Richmond, and 11 churches in 9 counties of KY. He probably attended William and Mary. The first church was James City (Smyrna) Baptist in 1773 (which met in the Powder Magazine). He went to KY in 1787, selling his home on Shockoe Hill (Main St.) and holding 9 slaves; four of his brothers went with him, and a sister. He lived first on Elkhorn Creek, then was recommended by William Hickman to the Brashears Church and then to Shelby County Church. He also founded the Ghent Baptist Church with Hickman.

After Sally died, he married (a third time) to Elizabeth and then (fourth) to Margaret Lightfoot. "Aunt Rose," a slave of his brother, noted that he "married rich every time" causing another family historian to say he "possessed more worldly wisdom than most pioneer preachers." He was described by Spencer as "below medium height, of stout build with the tendency to corpulency, and in later years became so unwieldly as to be unable to go far from home. He was scrupulously neat in his dress and elegantly dignified in bearing....as a preacher, he "spoke rapidly, with great energy and boldness." He owned over 1500 acres on the Ohio River.    

Notes of Eugenia Richards:   "On Sept. 6, 1779, Mr. Morris was acquiring an acre of land on Boar Swamp adjoining the head of the mill pond of the late Thomas Watkins, Jr. and on Oct. 4, same year, he bought another five acres.  The timeline estimates the death of his first wife at around 1778 and the marriage to Sally Watkins around the same time.  In 1780, he established and became pastor of the First Baptist Church of Richmond.  Between 1780 and 1786, he and Sally had four children.  In Dec 1787, he was selling the land bequeathed to his present wife by her last husband and in 1788, they moved to KY!.”

Steven L. Wright provided the following about Rev. Morris:   "Joshua L. Morris was probably the first preacher that settled within the present limits of Carroll county, Kentucky. He aided in gathering the first church in that region, and became its first pastor. This church was located at the mouth of the Kentucky river, and Mr. Morris was aided in constituting it, on the 5th of May, 1800, by William Hickman. It was at first called Port William, afterwards, McCools Bottom, and finally took the name Ghent, from the village in which it is now located. Mr. Morris served the church about three years, and then gave place to the more gifted John Scott. The time of his death has not been ascertained, although his will was probated in June 1840. Some of his posterity still live among those of his successor, in that region of the State."
