  • ID: I02266
  • Name: **Stephen Tomlinson 1
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: 2 DEC 1777 in Dobbs/Wayne County , North Carolina 2
  • Death: AFT 1 JUN 1835 in Wayne County , North Carolina 3
  • Burial: J. Tomlinson Cemetery, Black Creek Township, Wilson County, North Carolina
  • Note:
    Stephen Tomlinson has been reported to have a date of birth of 02 December 1777. This may have come from an old Bible.

    The 1800 census of Wayne County, NC page 862 would indicate he was born between 1774-1784.
    Likewise his wife was born in the same period.

    ///////////////

    He is buried in the Jonathan Tomlinson cemetery on Lely Road in present day, Black Creek Township, Wilson County, NC with his son Jonathan.

    ///////////////////

    Stephen Tomlinson married abt. 1800 Mary Rountree, daughter of Moses Rountree and wife Theresa Thomas, and has today many descendants living around Black Creek.

    (Notes from Hugh Buckner Johnston in an article in the Wilson Daily Times.)

    ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

    Unfortunately I do not have a complete list of the names of the children of Stephen Tomlinson and Mary Rountree daughter of Francis Rountree.
    The names of the children listed are taken from notes of the late J. Clifton Tomlinson of Black Creek, NC., and from Hugh Buckner Johnston, former historian of Wilson Co., NC.

    ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

    Stephen Tomlinson is found in the 1800 census of Wayne County, NC, page 862
    Listed are: 1 male 16-26, 1 female 10-16, 1 female 16-26
    Living nearby are: Jacob Rentfro, Jr. and Sr., Henry Pope, Reuben Hays, John Lucas, Daniel Lucas.
    This census would indicate Stephen Tomlinson was age 16-26 or born between 1774-1784. The same would be true for his wife.

    //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

    Stephen Tomlinson is found in the 1810 census of Wayne County, NC, page 246
    Listed are: 2 males under 10, 1 male 10-16, 1 male 26-45, 1 female under 10, 1 female 26-45, 1 slave

    /////////////////////////////////////////////////////

    Stephen Tomlinson is found in the 1820 census of Wayne County, NC, page 485
    Listed are: 1 male under 10, 2 males 16-26, 1 male 26-45, 1 male 45 up, and 2 females under 10, and 1 female age 16-26
    It would appear that by 1820 the wife of Stephen Tomlinson has died.

    //////////////////////////////////////////////////////

    Stephen Tomlinson is not found in the Wayne County, NC census of 1830; he was probably living with a son after 1830
    (see deed below of 1835_

    Deed Book 7, page 422

    He would have had to be age 21 to buy land so he was born at least by 1782.

    Wayne County, North Carolina
    Deed Book 13, page 210

    Stephen Tomlinson deed to Jonathan Tomlinson and Thomas Tomlinson 16 November 1826.
    Witnesses: Enos Rentfrow, and Benajah Rountree.

    (Kinfolks of Wayne County by Watson, page 206)

    This land was on Cabin Branch, and the south side of the Contentnea. The sale was for 100 acres for $100.00.

    This would have been in Wayne County in 1787 and in present day Wilson County, NC, on Blalock Road.

    From:Gvlthompson@cs.com (Frank Thompson)

    In checking my maps I find a Great Cabin Branch (early records) on what is now called, I believe, Cedar Creek. This is actually the 2nd tributary into Black Creek, west of HW 117. Where Great Cabin Branch crosses HW 301, I show a 640a. grant to John Barefoot dated 1778 on" both sides of Cabin Branch". Just to the west of this grant is one to Henry Pope for 200a, 1788, "on south side of Cabin Branch". Adjoining this grant (Pope) on the north is that of Robert Simms, and to the south Jacob Rentfro. Adjoining the north east is a 640a. grant to Benjamin Cobb dated 1779.
