    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 NorthHico Creek as neighbors to the Borens. Thomas Kilgore and his son,Charles became Long Hunters and Bazel Boren accompanied them on severalexpeditions into the wilderness.

    Thomas Kilgore was one of the first settlers of Robertson CountyTennessee. 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 ina cave for one year bearing the hardships of Indians and the situation.He returned to N. C. and gathered up his family and returned toTennessee. There are many records regarding Thomas Kilgore being "thefirst settler" in Robertson Co. Tennessee.

    He settled in Robertson Co. on the waters of the middle fork of RedRiver, near Cross Plains, Tennessee. Thomas received a land grant inRobertson Co of 640 acres with provisions that the settlement was to bestarted 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 hadthe title to his land confirmed and in 1779 with a few other familiesfrom Caswell County, he returned and they built Kilgore's Station toprotect the family settlement from the savage Indians. This fort wasabout three fourths of a mile from Cross Plains. From that time on formany years, Kilgore's Station was a landmark in the overland migration toTennessee.

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

    Thomas Kilgore supposedly died July 17, 1822 in Robertson Co. Tn. It wasreported in his obituary that he was 110 years old when he died. (haveref.) He had made a trip to another village to have his gun repaired andreturned 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 hewas 110 at his death.

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

    Some believe that Thomas Kilgore and Pheobe moved to Mississippi and somesay 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 CaswellCounty, N. C.

    James Lea of Kilgores Branch is first identified in 1777 when he appearson a Caswell Co. Tax list and in August of 1778 when a survey was orderedfor 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 hasnot been investigated and it is not know how is the father of Pheobe Lea.

    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'sMountain by Hugh M. Addington.
    Charles Kilgore married Winny Clayton. The tax list of 1755 in OrangeCo., 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 whoare found in Va. records and also N. C. records. I believe they are twodifferent Kilgores and not the same.

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

    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 89years, 1 month and 3 days. He was born in Nottoway County, Virginia,April 10, 1770. While young, his father removed to Caswell County, NorthCarolina, where at about the age of 18 years of age, he professedjustifying faith in Christ and united with the Methodist Episcopalchurch. He soon began to preach the gospel, but at what precise time hewas regularly licensed, we have not the means of ascertaining. He wasordained deacon at Lynchburg, Virginia, Feb. 7, 1808, by Bishop Asbury.He was ordained elder by Biship McKendree in Tennessee, on the 4th ofOctober. He emigrated to Tennessee at an early age, and was long acitizen of Robertson County. He raised a family, and by industry andeconomy was able to provide amply for their wants and to aid each childto make a fair start in the business of life. His latter years wererendered burdensome in some degree because of a serious fall from hishorse. His brother, the late Rev. James Gunn was his yoke-fellow, and formany years side by side they labored for the advancement of theRedeemer's case. The late Rev. William Gunn, long and favorably known inKentucky as an efficient itinerant preacher and a sweet singer in Israelwas 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 the14th of May 1784...." This would mean that Thomas Gunn was just fourteenyears 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 "AuntKate" 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..

    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 aMethodist circuit rider, appointed in 1837. It is not known if this J.Milton Ramey is of the Randolph Ramey line. There is a definite linkbetween the Rameys in Ala and the family of J. Milton Ramey, but justwhat, it is not known.

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

    Milton Ramey and Pheobe Lea Gunn were married in 1842 and by 1850 theyhad 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.

    1870 Census there is a James M Ramey age 36 gives birthplace as Tennliving 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. livingin Montgomery Co. At this point 7/2000 I do not know who these Rameysare.

    The Ramey marriage other than Milton Ramey is James M. Ramey married toDeliah Arnold in 1856 and wonder if this is the above Ramey. We foundthis was actually Roney so this is not pertinent but leaving asreference..

    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 theresearcher that J. Milton Ramey descended from Randolph Ramey. He may bedescended 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 aspy during the Civil War. That because of his status as a circuit riderhe was able to pass between the north and south lines more easily. Thisis only a family story and yet to be proven.

    A daughter of Lenora Caroline "Carry" Ramey states, "I saw the oldhomestead occupied by my grandparents (Pheobe Lea Gunn and J. MiltonRamey.) I have a picture of the house in the photo album of the daughterof 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. camefrom 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 houseover to the son of his last wife and the son would not care for him inhis old age. Having no money and no place to live the "Durham CountyHome" was where he finished out his days.

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

    Of interest is that in 1854 a Rufus Ramey was listed as a buyer at thesale 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 JohnBrooks along with James W. Featherston.

    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 born1716 in Scotland or Virginia and died 1791 in Robertson Co. He marriedMary Donelson abt. 1739 in Va. daughter of John Donelson and CatherineDavis. 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 Henryborn 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 hadlived until April 29 he would have celebrated his 78th birthday. Mr.Henry was a resident of Springfield all of his life................he wasa member of the Methodist church.

    He is survived by seven children, W. T. and J. W. Henry, Mrs. MiltonPike, Mrs. F. M. Woodard, Mrs. Rader Bell, Miss Lizzie Henry of thisplace 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 isin downtown Nashville.

    On Census for 1860 Robertson Co. Lists T. M. Henry 35 and H. T (Harriett30, M.L. age 5, E.R. 4, T.G. 2 and Frances Gunn 65. So the wife of ThomasGunn was living with her daughter in 1860. She was 65 years old in 1860.
