    Notes for Thomas I Kilgore:
    Thomas Kilgore, Sr. and His Proven Descendants to 1991
    By Evelyn Yates Carpenter

    Montgomery Co. Tenn. Thomas Kilgore is listed as owning 2130 acres

    The boren Family of South West Virginia page 41. In about 1763 Thomas
    Kilgore and his five sons arrived in Orange County and settled on North Hico Creek as neighbors to the Borens. Thomas Kilgore and his son, Charles became Long Hunters and Bazel Boren accompanied them on several expeditions into the wilderness.

    Thomas Kilgore was one of the first settlers of Robertson County Tennessee. He left his family in N. C. and went to Robertson Co. Tenn. and had to live there one year in order to receive the land. He lived in a cave for one year bearing the hardships of Indians and the situation. He returned to N. C. and gathered up his family and returned to Tennessee. There are many records regarding Thomas Kilgore being "the first settler" in Robertson Co. Tennessee.

    He settled in Robertson Co. on the waters of the middle fork of Red River, near Cross Plains, Tennessee. Thomas received a land grant in Robertson Co of 640 acres with provisions that the settlement was to be started prior to 1780. In the spring of 1778 Thomas Kilgore left N. C. with some ammunition, salt, and a few grains of corn. Traveling by foot, he passed through East Tennessee and plunged into the wilderness beyond. He selected a cave one mile west of where Cross
    Plains is not situated. In the fall he returned to North Carolina and had the title to his land confirmed and in 1779 with a few other families from Caswell County, he returned and they built Kilgore's Station to protect the family settlement from the savage Indians. This fort was about three fourths of a mile from Cross Plains. From that time on for many years, Kilgore's Station was a landmark in the overland migration to Tennessee.

    The first mill was built by Thomas Kilgore on the middle fork of the Red River.

    Thomas Kilgore supposedly died July 17, 1822 in Robertson Co. Tn. It was reported in his obituary that he was 110 years old when he died. (have ref.) He had made a trip to another village to have his gun repaired and returned the same day and at his advanced age it was too much for him. Nashville Whit July 31, 1822 gives date of death as July 17, 1822.

    The support for Thomas Kilgore living to be over the age of 100: His
    obituary was printed in the "Nashville Whig" in 1822 and claimed that he was 110 at his death.

    Notes for Lydia Unknown:
    No proof that Lydia was a Yates, before marriage.

    Children of Thomas Kilgore and Lydia Unknown are:

    2. Thomas II2 Kilgore (Thomas I1) was born Abt. 1759 in Orange Co., N. C., and died 1857 in Three Creeks Arkansas. He married Pheobe Lea January 02, 1786 in Leasburg, NC Orange Co., daughter of James Lea and Ann Tolbert.
    Notes for Thomas II Kilgore:

    Thomas Kilgore b 1759 N. C. died 1857 in Three Creeks Arkansas was listed in the 1812 National Soc. U. S. Daughters of 1812 as serving in Lt. Tn. Mil.
    1817 Thomas Kilgore Sr. deeds land to Thomas Kilgore Jr. Witness to deed were Thomas Purcell, Elizabeth Kilgore and Frances Kilgore.

    Some believe that Thomas Kilgore and Pheobe moved to Mississippi and some say they moved to Cross Plains Tenn where the father of Thomas resided. More research is needed in Tennessee.

    Notes for Pheobe Lea:

    The Lea family lived in where present Leasburg, N. and is in Caswell County, N. C.

    James Lea of Kilgores Branch is first identified in 1777 when he appears on a Caswell Co. Tax list and in August of 1778 when a survey was ordered for him for 587 acres in Caswell Co. on both sides of Kilgores Branch, joining the line of William Moore and Thomas Kilgore. The Lea family has not been investigated and it is not know how is the father of Pheobe Lea.

    Marriage Notes for Thomas Kilgore and Pheobe Lea:
    One source states married in Leasburg, Orange Co. N.C. and another source states married in Caswell Co., NC

    Children of Thomas Kilgore and Pheobe Lea are:

    6 i. Phoebe Lea3 Kilgore. She married Dawson Moore.

    7 ii. Lydia Kilgore, born 1802; died 1832. She married S.C. Strother.

    Notes for Charles Kilgore:

    Deed Book B. page 271, 1799

    Deed Book 1 p. 443-444 October 1838

    Deed Book 2 p 47-48 January 1832

    There has been some confusion between these two Charles Kilgores. One
    Charles Kilgore of Kings Mountain fame. See Charles kilgore of Kings's Mountain by Hugh M. Addington.
    Charles Kilgore married Winny Clayton. The tax list of 1755 in Orange Co., N. C. shows Robert Kilgore with two sons.
    A deed in 1761 from John Graves to Robert Kilgore, planter 210 acres.

    Thomas Kilgore sold to Robert Kilgore, Jr. 280 acres 1770.

    The debate will probably go on regarding Charles and Robert Kilgore who are found in Va. records and also N. C. records. I believe they are two different Kilgores and not the same.

    Children of Charles Kilgore and Unice Lea are:

    12 i. Charles Kilgore3 Jr.. He married Rebecca Crabtree January 11, 1840 in Robertson Co. Tenn..

    Notes for Francis Kilgore:
    Frances Kilgore was the daughter of Thomas Kilgore
    Thomas Gunn Bible gives date of birth of the children of Thomas and Frances and also gives birthdate of both Frances and Thomas and also marriage date.
    1850 Census Robertson Co. Tenn has Frances Gunn living in the household of daughter, Harriett Gunn Henry. This was some time before the death of Thomas Gunn.

    Frances Gunn reportedly lived with Pheobe Lea Gunn Ramey and Milton Ramey after the death of Thomas Gunn and may have moved to North Carolina after the death of Pheobe Lea Gunn Ramey with Milton Ramey to be near other relatives who moved to N. C. She died 1879.

    Notes for Thomas IV Gunn:
    Anpit 1791 Thomas moved to Caswell County, North Carolina and in the Spring of 1811, followed his brother James to the Red River Area, settling in Logan Co. Ky. and Thomas settled just across the river in Robertson Co.

    When about 70 years of age Thomas Gunn fell from his horse and he suffered a dislocated hip which was never set, leaving one leg shorter than the other.

    Will on file in Robertson County Tenn. Archives: Will Book 16 page 794. Names wife Frances, Phebe Raimey, Francis C. Gunn and Harriett L. Gunn. In the will of Thomas Gunn, it mentions a Kentucky Land Grant received. At some point the line between Tenn. and Ky. changed. and it would help also to investigate Kentucky records.

    This is the obituary that appears in the book, Robertson County, Tennessee Obituaries and Death Records, 1802-1930 by Gregory G. Poole, 1999, pg 108:

    GUNN, THOMAS The venerable servant of God, as has been announced already, is no more. He fell asleep in Jesus on the 13th of May, 1859, aged 89 years, 1 month and 3 days. He was born in Nottoway County, Virginia, April 10, 1770. While young, his father removed to Caswell County, North Carolina, where at about the age of 18 years of age, he professed justifying faith in Christ and united with the Methodist Episcopal church. He soon began to preach the gospel, but at what precise time he was regularly licensed, we have not the means of ascertaining. He was ordained deacon at Lynchburg, Virginia, Feb. 7, 1808, by Bishop Asbury. He was ordained elder by Biship McKendree in Tennessee, on the 4th of October. He emigrated to Tennessee at an early age, and was long a citizen of Robertson County. He raised a family, and by industry and economy was able to provide amply for their wants and to aid each child to make a fair start in the business of life. His latter years were rendered burdensome in some degree because of a serious fall from his horse. His brother, the late Rev. James Gunn was his yoke-fellow, and for many years side by side they labored for the advancement of the Redeemer's case. The late Rev. William Gunn, long and favorably known in Kentucky as an efficient itinerant preacher and a sweet singer in Israel was the son of James Gunn and a nephew of the subject of this notice. J. B. McFerrin

    Nashville Christian Advocate July 14, 1859

    From: Methodism in Tennessee "Thomas Gunn was licensed to preach on the 14th of May 1784...." This would mean that Thomas Gunn was just fourteen years of ionable.

    Birthdates of children listed in Thomas Gunn bible.

    Children of Francis Kilgore and Thomas Gunn are:

    + 15 i. Pheobe Lea4 Gunn, born May 02, 1826; died 1861.

    16 ii. Francis Caroline Gunn, born August 31, 1829.

    Notes for Francis Caroline Gunn:

    Birthdate from Thomas Gunn bible.

    It is thought that Caroline Gunn never married and this may be the "Aunt Kate" referred to in letters.

    + 17 iii. Harriett T. Gunn, born January 04, 1832 in Caswell Co. N. C.; died May 19, 1862 in Robertson Co. Tn..

    Generation No. 4

    15. Pheobe Lea4 Gunn (Francis3 Kilgore, Thomas II2, Thomas I1) was born May 02, 1826, and died 1861. She married J. Milton Ramey May 03, 1842 in Robertson Co. Tenn, son of Randolph Ramey and Jane Ramey.
    Notes for Pheobe Lea Gunn:
    Birthdate from Thomas Gunn bible.
    Middle name Lea was taken from her mother's family in Caswell County.
    Either married in Cheatham or Robertson Co. Tennessee.

    Notes for J. Milton Ramey:
    There is some question as to when J. Milton Ramey died. He was a Methodist circuit rider, appointed in 1837. It is not known if this J. Milton Ramey is of the Randolph Ramey line. There is a definite link between the Rameys in Ala and the family of J. Milton Ramey, but just what, it is not known.

    CHEATHAM COUNTY was established February 28, 1856, out of parts of DAVIDSON, ROBERTSON, DICKSON and MONTGOMERY Counties, all of which were originally the CUMBERLAND DISTRICT and then DAVIDSON COUNTY. Cheatham was so small when established that no part of it was ever taken to make parts or all of any other counties.

    On the account sale of Estate of Thomas Gunn, Estate Settlement Loose Papers 1850-1900. Robertson Co.
    "I find charged by J. T., Gunn guardian as afore said against Milton Ramy a note put in his hand for collection in the amount of 225.00. Also for hire of boy Jake for the year 1855, 1000. For the hire of boy Jake for the year 1856 and 1857. For 1856 $150.00, 1857 $125.00 in all 275 in all. 1857 in cash loaned 300.00. For hire of Boy Jake for 1858 175.00

    March 1861.
    Milton Ramey and Pheobe Lea Gunn were married in 1842 and by 1850 they had moved from Robertson to Montgomery County and had three children. (Check to see if county lines changed...or they moved)

    By letters were living in the area of Clarksville.

    Ramey, Jane 67 born in Va. This Jane is living or listed just before the Milton Ramey Family.

    1860 on Cheatham Co. Tenn Census age 44, F.L age 34 (This is probably Pheobe Lea), M.S age 16 [This is probably Melville Summerfield] age 16, T.B. [This is probably Thomas B.) age13, R. [this is probably Ruford] age 10, L [Lenora} age 7, and T.V. age 5 and a female.(Do not know who the last entry is)

    1870 Census there is a James M Ramey age 36 gives birthplace as Tenn living in Clarksville, Tn. Montgomery County. A Wellis age 20, a Sam E. 37 born in Tenn., Montgomery Co, and a Milly age 56 born in N. C. living in Montgomery Co. At this point 7/2000 I do not know who these Rameys are.

    The Ramey marriage other than Milton Ramey is James M. Ramey married to Deliah Arnold in 1856 and wonder if this is the above Ramey. We found this was actually Roney so this is not pertinent but leaving as reference..

    At this time 7/00 it is not known if the father of J. Milton Ramey is
    Benjamin Ramey or Randolph Ramey.

    Further research is needed in Tennessee before this can be determined. When this was researched back in the 1930s, my great aunt was told by the researcher that J. Milton Ramey descended from Randolph Ramey. He may be descended from the Jacques Remey line who was born abt. 1630 in Lorraine, France and died in 1721 in Westmoreland Co. Va.

    Have two coded letters supposedly written by James Milton Ramey who was a spy during the Civil War. That because of his status as a circuit rider he was able to pass between the north and south lines more easily. This is only a family story and yet to be proven.

    A daughter of Lenora Caroline "Carry" Ramey states, "I saw the old homestead occupied by my grandparents (Pheobe Lea Gunn and J. Milton Ramey.) I have a picture of the house in the photo album of the daughter of Caroline Ramey which was given to me by a cousin in the year 2,000, along with many family letters.

    Marriage Notes for Pheobe Gunn and J. Ramey:
    Marriage in Robertson Co. Marriages - page 50.

    Children of Pheobe Gunn and J. Ramey are:

    18 i. Fannie5 Ramey. She married unknown Thompson.
    Notes for Fannie Ramey:
    This may be the mother of Ina Thompson. Some of the old letters etc. came from her personal belongings. I do not know where she lived or died.

    19 ii. Ruford (Rufus) Ramey.
    Notes for Ruford (Rufus) Ramey:
    Ruford died in the Durham County Poor House as he had signed his house over to the son of his last wife and the son would not care for him in his old age. Having no money and no place to live the "Durham County Home" was where he finished out his days.

    In one of his letters he mentions his children and a wife of his youth and further stated that they did not know him. The name mentioned was Delina Arnold as the "wife of his youth".

    Of interest is that in 1854 a Rufus Ramey was listed as a buyer at the sale of property of Hames Harrison. Book R. page 194, Caswell Co. N. C.

    Also in Book Q page 478 Edward Ramey was a buyer at the estate of John Brooks along with James W. Featherston.

    >From letters Aunt Ila F. Cox states Melville and Mother died early before 1865.

    Melville S. Ramey served with the 49 Tennessee Infantry (Confederate) Co. K as a private.

    Of interest is that a Melvin S. Ramey born 1814 and died June 17, 1870 is buried in the Gunn Cemetery on Dowlen Rod farm owned by James D. Ayres in a field east of his home. It is not known at this time which Ramey this could be.

    Notes for T.Marion Henry:
    T. M. Ramey and both wives are buried in Elmwood Cemetery in Springfield, Tenn., Robertson Co.

    T. M. Henry is descended from Hugh Henry Sr., son of Alexander Henry born 1716 in Scotland or Virginia and died 1791 in Robertson Co. He married Mary Donelson abt. 1739 in Va. daughter of John Donelson and Catherine Davis. They came with John Donelson Jr. on his trip to Tennessee in 1779. Hugh Sr. established ownership of land on the Red River near Clay Lick.
    Hugh Henry Jr. was next in line to David Henry then to Isaac David Henry born 1802. Isaac David Henry was the father of Thomas Marion Henry
    The obit states in part: T.M. Henry died at the home ofhis daughter Mrs. Rader Bell.......His death resulted from LaGrippe........If Mr. Henry had lived until April 29 he would have celebrated his 78th birthday. Mr. Henry was a resident of Springfield all of his life................he was a member of the Methodist church.

    He is survived by seven children, W. T. and J. W. Henry, Mrs. Milton Pike, Mrs. F. M. Woodard, Mrs. Rader Bell, Miss Lizzie Henry of this place and Mrs. E. M. Harrell of Springhill Tennessee.

    It is thought that T. M. Henry may be descended from Patrick Henry.

    He is also descended from The Donaldson family of Fort Donaldson which is in downtown Nashville.

    On Census for 1860 Robertson Co. Lists T. M. Henry 35 and H. T (Harriett 30, M.L. age 5, E.R. 4, T.G. 2 and Frances Gunn 65. So the wife of Thomas Gunn was living with her daughter in 1860. She was 65 years old in 1860.
