A marriage agreement dated 27 Jun 1794 was made between Joseph Gooch of Granville Co., NC, and Anne Lockett, widow and relict of Abner Lockett, of Mecklenburg Co., VA. Joseph Gooch is to claim no part of the estate of Anne Lockett, and Anne Lockett will claim no part of the estate of Joseph Gooch except what he may devise to her. Ann Lockett relinquished all dower right in the estate of Joseph Gooch. Recorded 13 Oct 1794. (Mecklenburg Co., VA Deed Bk 8, pg 463 in "Emigration to the Other States from Southside Virginia by Katherine B. Elliott, p 70, FHL Bk 975.5W2e)
There was a Chancery suit in Mecklenburg Co. Court for Oct 1804. Thomas Lockett, Lucy Lockett, Scarborough Penticost and Phebe his wife, Phillip Lockett and Francis Lockett, which said Phillip and Francis are infants and orphans of Abner Lockett, deceased, by Thomas Lockett their guardian, and Robert Hester, administrator of the estate of Nancy Hester, deceased, who was one of the children of Abner Lockett, deceased, Plaintiffs vs William Marshall, Executor, and Joseph Gooch and Anne his wife, also executors of the estate of Obner Lockett, deceased. Suit was to divide slaves and money of the estate of Abner Lockett. (Mecklenburg Co., VA Order Bk 12, p 261 in Emigration to the Other States from Southside, VA by Katherine P. Elliott, p 70)
Sue Neuman, 2002, wrote: "John Gooch who died in 1814 was apparently a brother to Joseph Gooch who md Abner Lockett's widow. They had lived next to each other in Amelia/Nottaway Co, VA. John's daughter Prudence md Thomas Worsham on Oct 23, 1788 Amelia Co, VA. She had children; Judith Elizabeth, Francis, and Henry. Henry died in Apr of 1816 leaving three minor children; Nancy Prudence, William Branch and John Henry (see page 344). These children and possibly their mother moved to Tennessee. I believe that it is very likely that she was Betsy Hargis."

1.3.1B.2A.4. John Marshall md Rebecca Moody. Rebecca is probably Rebecca Clay. Jodie Gee, 2002 writes "In May Court 1804, Bk 23, p 150 has Charles Clay, Samuel Clay, Thomas Clay, Samuel Clay Jr, only child of Abia Clay, John Marshall and his wife, formerly Rebecca Clay... "The following is from Jodie Gee, 2000: "John Marshall md Rebecca Clay and she named her first son Henry Clay Marshall. The Clays lived next door to the Marshall's. Rebecca Clay married a John Marshall who may be s/o William. They md 1769 and first son was named Henry Clay Marshall. Rebecca's Mother was Lucy Greene Clay who after husband Henry Clay died , md William Marshall . Lucy, other children and Rebecca moved to the Marshall Plantation which was next door. Rebecca was 12 and John who was 29 and when she was 17, they were married. Since he was older he could have had another wife who had died but I have no record of it. In Book 23, p150 May Court 1804: Charles Clay , Samuel Clay , Thomas Clay , Samuel Clay Jr, the only child of Abia Clay dec'd, Mastin Clay , John Marshall and his wife, the former Rebecca Clay, and Thomas Jones, Theodorick Hall and Frances his wife formerly Frances Jones, Charles Jones , Rebecca Jones , Sally Jones , Elizabeth Jones and Richard West Jones, children of Richard Jones dec'd and Lucy Jones, his wife , the former Lucy Clay now also dec'd and Thomas Jones their next friend and Elijah Clay plaintiffs against Henry Clay executor of Henry Clay dec'd."
Additional information from Francis Moody book by Clara Park: "John Marshall was the elder son of William Marshall (I). John Marshall and wife Rebecca were in Mecklenburg County, Va., prior to Dec. 1775 when John began negotiations to break the entailment on 300 acres of land in Cumberland County that John's father had erroneously bequeathed to the younger brother, William Marshall (II). Since John Marshall of Mecklenburg County "was seized as tenant in fee trail," John had to "break" the entailment before either he or William could dispose of the land (Cumberland Co., VA Deed Bk 5, pp 430,482) Here Mrs. Park stated "See Chapter 2, topic "Cumberland County Records" for details. See Pages 18-20. (I only have page 18 of Chapter 2 wherein Mrs. Park states, "In William Marshall's will dated October 2, 1768 he bequeathed to his last wife, Lucy Marshall, his rights to her plantation, her furniture, and four slaves, all of which she had inherited from her previous husband, Henry Clay, whose will was probated May 28, 1764. William Marshall's will stated that his rights to her property which he returned to Lucy were in lieu of her right of dower to my estate. He also gave Lucy a year's supply of pork and corn for her family.) In 1787 he (John Marshall) sold 300 acres to his brother-in-law, Arthur Moody (Mecklenburg Co., VA Deed Bk 7, p 97)
In May court of 1782 in Mecklenburg County ordered that John Marshall should be paid for supplying 400 c. weight beef for use of the Continental Army. Also in 1782 John Marshall's assessment for land tax in the Upper District was for 391 acres. In 1783 the personal property tax book shows that John Marshall was taxed for four slaves over 16 years old: Jack, Judy, Cate, Amy, and 2 slaves over 12 and under 16 years: Tom and Anaky.
In 1784 John Marshall's tax assessment in Mecklenburg County was for five slaves over 16 years old: Jack, Judy, Cate, Amy, Liller, and 4 slaves under 16 and over 12 years; Tom, Anaky, Eddy, Fanny. Also in 1784 John Marshall and Henry Moody (II) bought 1,742 acres on the south side of Butchers Creek from William Call. In 1785 and 1786 John Marshall was assessed taxes for 9 slaves. He had no assessments for personal property in Mecklenburg County after 1786.
In 1787 his land assessment was for 265 acres; in Jan. 1787 he sold 300 acres to his brother-in-law, Arthur Moody. Also in Jan 1787 John Marshall and his wife Rebecca sold their interest in 683 acres of the partnership land to his partner, Henry Moody (II) (Mecklenburg Co., VA Deed Bk 7, p 97)
In May 1795, Francis Moody, son and executor of Henry Moody (II), deceased, was ordered by the court to pay John Marshall $5.40 for attending court six days as a witness for Francis in his suit against Charles Burton, a man to whom the partners had sold 103 l/2 acres in 1787.
In Nov. 1799, John Marshall was living in Granville County, North Caroline, which adjoins Mecklenburg County, Va., when he and his nephew Francis Moody, administrator of Henry Moody (II) deceased, apparently had some differences of opinion concerning the partnership of Henry Moody (II) and John Marshall. This conflict was revealed in a power of attorney executed Nov. 56, 1799, to Francis Moody by his mother, Elizabeth (Marshall) Moody, "to manage a law suit which may be necessary to be brought against John Marshall of North Carolina...and to relinquish any right to dower which I may have...and to make agreements for me to the division of land...whereof my deceased husband died possessed." (Mecklenburg Co., VA Deed Bk 10, p 216.

In Reply to: Re Hawley Williamson by: Little Nancy
I have the following which may be of interest: Hawley (Hall) Williamson married Nancey (Ann) Smith in Caswell Co NC as he posted a marriage bond there on 10/19/1791. She apparently was his second wife as he was previously married to Margaret Swift, who died after 1782, before 1791. The 1777 Caswell Co NC Early Census Index, St. David's District includes Nathan Williamson, Hall Williamson, and Jeremiah Williamson. The 1784 Caswell Co NC Tax List, St. David's District includes Nathan Williamson, Hall Williamson, Jeremiah Williamson, Stephen Williamson and James Williamson. A Thomas Williamson from Lunenberg Co VA who m. Martha Jones had an orphaned son Hall Williamson in 1763. The Rev. War veteran Hawley Williamson of Madison Co AL died in 1830, and I assume that you know or believe that he is the same person. The 1810 Rockingham Co NC Census that you mentioned includes Jeremiah Williamson on an adjacent line. Jeremiah (b.c. 1743) is also included in the 1800 Rockingham Co NC Census, married Margaret Simpson, and owned Caswell Co NC property adjacent to Nathan Williamson (b.c. 1748) on Country Line Creek in Caswell Co when he lived there. My speculation based on the above is that Nathan, Jeremiah, and Hawley may have been brothers, or were at least related. I hope that this helps. Best regards.

Hawley is in the 1810 Census in rockingham NC. He came south shortly for he entered land in Madison County in 1814.Did you mean he married a Smith or did her name start with an A? He was in the revolution, He had a son Hawley Jr. born in 1804 . Hawley Sr. was born in 1752. Do you know of any Williamsons in Caswell Co. old enough to be his father?Margaret Connally
