  • Notes 
    • In the August session of the court in 1777 we have some significant transactions. In the proceedings of August 6, 1777 there were three orders:
      1) Ordered by the Court that Hannah Stapleton Orphan of Joseph Stapleton be bound to Hugh Cathey she being 11 years old and to serve until she be 18 Years of Age, said Master to give said orphan 6 pounds and one Spinning Wheel, and what the Law allows.
      2) Ordered That Anne Stapleton Orphan of Joseph Stapleton be bound to John Lowry, she being Nine Years and Six Months old, to serve until she be 18 Years old, said Master to give her six pounds a Spinning Wheel and what the Law allows.
      3) Ordered that Avis Stapleton Orphan of Joseph Stapleton be bound to James Bailey she being 8 Years old and to serve until she be 18 Years old said Master to give her six pounds a Spinning Wheel and what the Law allows.
      ------
      Nancy Anne Stapleton (1768-1855) m. 10 Jan 1792, Cyrus Sackett (1764-1846)
      The third Stapleton daughter to marry was Nancy Anne who concluded her obligation to John Lowry in 1786 and married Cyrus Sackett on January 10, 1792 in Bourbon Co., KY. The marriage bond for this marriage gives the names as Cyrus Sackett and Anne Steepleton which would indicate that Nancy Anne, almost 24 yrs of age, was still a single woman and had made her way from Rowan Co., NC. to Bourbon Co., KY. With whom did she travel?

      The first thought was that she had made the move with the John Lowry family to whom she was bound in 1777. However, land records in Rowan Co., NC. indicate that John Lowry was still living there September 23, 1803 when he deeded 160 acres of land to Henry Williams. There remained the possibility that she traveled with one of the sons of John Lowry who are believed to have moved to KY., but the dates of the move were not known. The second thought was that she had traveled with her sister Hannah and her husband Daniel Lewis, Jr. but this theory was discounted when it was learned that Daniel Lewis, Jr. and Hannah did not leave Rowan Co., NC. until after 1800. "As executor of the will of his father, Daniel Jr., conveys March 15, 1802, land to John Hendrix (Hendricks) Jr. He was evidentially the nephew of Daniel Jr., his sister Sarah's son. Under date of August 12, 1804 Daniel sells land to William Wilcockson (Wilcox), said land "being part of the land grant and conveyed to Daniel Lewis, deceased" (Record Book 19, page 188". So, it is obvious that Daniel and Hannah did not leave Rowan Co. until after August 12, 1804.

      We have the record of Nancy Anne's sister Avis Stapleton's marriage to Abraham Van Eaton 17 Dec 1789. Along with that, there is information that the Van Eaton Baptist Church split and reorganized in 1790 over the question of supporting missionaries. Shortly after the reorganization, Abraham Van Eaton, husband of Avis Stapleton, (Nancy's sister) was dismissed by letter from the church. In the 1790 Kentucky Census constructed from the Tax Records (page 97) Abraham Van Eaton was listed in Bourbon Co., KY on the March 1791Tax List. When we add to this the knowledge that Cyrus and Nancy Anne (Stapleton) Sackett were noted for being Baptists in Greene Co., OH. after they arrived there; it would appear that the logical solution as to the traveling companions of Nancy Anne in her move from North Carolina to Kentucky would be the family of her sister Avis (Stapleton) Van Eaton, the Hugh Cathey family, and probably Joel Lewis, Sr. (who was in his teens at the time and still single). The main problem with this construction is the letter written 27 Jan 1806 (above) by Cyrus Sackett in which he says that Nancy Anne had not seen her oldest sister for "these seventeen years". This statement would seem to indicate that Nancy Anne left Rowan Co., NC. in the year 1789, unless they had not seen one another for a period of time before Nancy Anne left Rowan Co., NC. However that may be, we do know from the tax records of Bourbon Co., KY. that both Cyrus Sackett and Abraham Van Eaton were on the tax rolls there from 1791 to 1798. Neither of them are on the tax roll for 1799, the year in which we know that Cyrus made the move to Greene Co., OH. in the month of October.

      Cyrus and Nancy, who was about 7 months pregnant, along with three children under age six, moved from Kentucky to Ohio in October 1799 arriving there on the 17th day of the month at three o'clock in the afternoon. Cyrus Sackett was among the first settlers in what is known today as Greene County, Ohio. At that time the only home where Bell Brook now stands, was an old frontier tavern. Shortly after their arrival in Ohio their fifth child, Samuel was born on 5 Dec 1799.

      Hi David, Thurmon and Cindy, I have been hunting for hours now and here is what I found on Nancy Sackett

      Cyrus Sackett Married Nancy Ann Stapleton in Bourbon Co. KY January 10, 1792 (Source..Marriage Record, State of KY, County of Bourbon)

      Nancy is buried in the Primitive Baptist Cemetery, DD 9/18/1855 (Source..Greene Co. Ohio Cemetery Inscriptions Vol. 4, Compiled by The Greene CO Chapter of the Ohio Geneal. Society, 1985, and Cemetery Tombstone Inscriptions and Photographs of Selected Greene County, Ohio Pioneers from the 1700s and 1800s, Compiled by Arthur R. Kilner, Xenia OH 1983, her actual stone is photographed) Could it be that Primitive Baptist Cemetery and Carmine Burying grounds are the same thing. I have a statement from Hazel Deckens who was the granddaughter of Mercy Sackett, she states "Cyrus Sackett was an earnest and devoted Christian, he joined the Regular (Old Style) Baptist Church and afterwards went to what was known as Carmine's Church, which stood on the site of the old burial ground one mile south of Bell Brook. Both Cyrus and Nancy are buried in the Carmine Burying grounds."

      The 1850 US Census for Greene Co. Ohio lists her birthplace as MD, I can not find why I have in my records that the town was Baltimore. So, does anyone have other stuff I do not.???

      Nancy and Cyrus' daughter Aner Sackett Pogue is buried in Fletcher which is just down the road from Bell Brook where Nancy and Cyrus are buried. Sorry I mixed mother and daughter up abit. Happy 4th you all, Nora
