SIMPSON FAMILIES of SOUTH CAROLINA
Bryce Knight, 7419 Harris, Raytown, MO 64133

When I sent you my letter of 13 February 2000, subsequently published in the Spring 2000 issue of Simpson Clan I felt that I might have neglected a few items of possible SIMPSON interest concerning the Raben’s Creek area of Laurens Co., South Carolina and the family of Richard SIMPSON, Sr. who died 1795 Guilford Co., North Carolina.

Addendum to my article published in The Simpson Clan, Spring 2000, pp 3-6 exploring various SIMPSON, KNIGHT and other possible allied family relationships:

See also, The Simpson Clan, Summer 1996, p 1, Item 361, Abstract of Report 6 Simpson Research Project by Don Simpson discussing the possibility of Mary, second wife of Richard SIMPSON, Sr., being a daughter of John and Mary HALLUM, and including mention of BRASHEARS.

Laurens Co., South Carolina, Deed Book N, 210: 25 February 1835: James KNIGHT for $5 to James WILSON for love and affection for wife Caty and her children BY HER originally granted to Harman NUFFER on NE side of W fork of Raben’s Creek, 100 acres, bounded by W.F. DOWNS, William LINDLEY, Henry LINDLEY and William ADAMS. Wit: R.L. SIMPSON, Wm NICKLES.

Laurens Co., South Carolina Estate Packet 157, 17. James KNIGHT, Sr., deceased by 19 Sept 1866. John S. WOLFF, administrator. Appraisers: Jonathan ABERCROMBIE, James VAUGHN, John L. WILSON. Inventory dated 19 Oct., 1866, with value of $149.00. Pur­chasers include: Aquilla LINDLEY, Samuel BOLT, John LINDLEY, Sr., Allen WALDEN (?), James LINDLEY, M.A. CHEEK, William HELLAMS, Mrs. Frances HELLAMS, J.S. WOLFF, William WILSON, Matthew BROWN, B.F. BROWN, Mary LINDLEY, Dr. A.C. FULLER, B.H. KNIGHT, Elizabeth KNIGHT, Jefferson BOLT, Jonathan ABERCROMBIE, Allen WALDON (freedman), Cresswell WOLFF, William L. KNIGHT, Allen FOSTER (freedman), John BOLT (freedman), George WOLFF (freedman), W.H. MANLY, Ephraim S. SIMPSON. There was mention of a note on Zimri KNIGHT dated 22 Dec 1851.
There was also mention of a note “for $125 given to Catherine KNIGHT by John G. KNIGHT about the commencement of the war.” She was deceased by 19 Oct 1866.

Church Cemeteries Laurens Co., South Carolina, Vol. 1, by Col. James Leland BOLT & Margaret Eltinge BOLT: Rabun Creek Baptist Church: Included, are numerous ABERCROMBIEs, John C. HELLAMS (6 July 1860 — ), Phoebie HELLAMS (11 Aug 1859 — 29 Sept 1922), Clarantine ABERCROMBIE (HELLAMS?) (21 May 1844 — 18 Dec 1934), J. Lafayette HELLAMS (5 Aug 1855 — 19 July 1928), Frances HELLAMS (22 Aug 1817 — 23 May 1900), Louisa, wife of T.L. HELLAMS (5 Apr 1857 — 8 Feb 1917), James A. KNIGHT (b 1882 and erected by Clara BOLT), H. LINDLEY (18 Aug 1823 — 17 May 1905), Rutha LINDLEY (28 Nov 1825 — 25 June 1913, Fannie, wife of B.F. KNIGHT (11 Dec 1823 - 13 June 1902), B. HENDLEY (LINDLEY?) KNIGHT, Co. A, S.C. Reserve, C.S.A. (these KNIGHT stones apparently among the numerous LINDLEY stones and probably related), and LINDLEY stones include: Wil1iam LINDLEY (died 9 Aug 1869, age 84 years), Elizabeth, wife of W. LINDLEY (24 Nov 1794 —1 Aug 1884), John LINDLEY (14 Aug 1826 — 5 March 1901). And other names allied with these KNIGHTs.

1800 U.S. Census Union District (Co.), South Carolina, apparently in sequence:
Page 230B:
Mathew SIMS (SIMPSON?)
Thomas NIGHT (apparent father of James C. KNIGHT, Sr. above)
Joseph CORNER (or perhaps CONNER)
Lydda HOLLINSWORTH 

Page 227:
Appears Reuben NIGHT (proposed brother of Thomas, p 230B), a Magnes SIMISSON, more HOLLINSWORTHs, etc.

5 January 1797, Thomas NIGHT and Ruben NIGHT were purchasers at the estate sale of Joseph HOLLINGSWORTH, grandson of Abraham and Ann HOLLINGSWORTH of Frederick Co., Virginia. Estate sale occurred Union Co., South Carolina.

1790 U.S. Census of Union Co., District 96, South Carolina: Thomas KNIGHT, with HOLLINGSWORTH neighbors.

William LINDLEY mentioned above (married Elizabeth RIDGEWAY), was the brother of Mary LINDLEY who married John ABERCROMBIE, Nancy LINDLEY who married John BOLT and Thomas LINDLEY whose line was associated with FULLERs and KNIGHTs, and was the son of Thomas LINDLEY b ca 1754-60 Orange Co., North Carolina, married Elizabeth HALL, also buried Laurens Co. His father was James LINDLEY, died 1779 Laurens Co., South Carolina. These LINDLEYs are also mentioned numerous times, Raborn Creek area of Laurens Co., South Carolina and also Orange Co., North Carolina in legal documents involving HOLLINGSWORTHs.

According to a HOLLINGSWORTH genealogy, a Ruth HOLLINGSWORTH (father, Henry, died Elton, Cecil Co., Maryland 1721) b 1689 married 24 December 1706 a SIMPSON. Her brother, Zebulon HOLLINGSWORTH, in 1750 Frederick Co., Virginia sold land to a James KNIGHT. 2 March 1748, Frederick Co., Virginia a James KNIGHT, William GLOVER and Joseph LUPTON witnessed the will of Ann HOLLINGSWORTH, wife of Abraham. Ann (ROBINSON) HOLLINGSOWRTH, daughter of George ROBINSON, had married Abraham 13 March 1710, and she died 1749. (Several ROBINSONs married HOLLINGSWORTHs) Abraham HOLLINGSWORTH was a first cousin of Zebulon and Ruth HOLLINGSWORTH (i.e., Mrs. Ruth SIMPSON), according to HOL­LINGSWORTH genealogy.

Abraham and Ann (ROBINSON) HOLLINGSWORTH had a son, George HOLLINGSWORTH, b 12 April 1712 Cecil Co., Maryland who married Hannah McCOY of Frederick Co., Virginia at the house of Isaac PERKINS in Frederick Co., Virginia with those attending: Thomas BABB, Isaac PERKINS and Mary PERKINS. George later lived Laurens Co., South Carolina (BABBs are very much associated with these KNIGHTs of Union and Laurens Co., and some are buried at Rabun Creek Cemetery.) Isaac and Mary PERKINS appear (if I have this right) to be in-laws of the parents, William PERKINS and Elizabeth COTTRELL, of Avarilla PERKINS who married William SIMPSON born 1718 old Baltimore Co., Maryland [perhaps] son of Thomas SIMPSON and Mary SMITH.

It might be noted that while the above mentioned LINDLEYs and HOLLINGSWORTHs were definitely Quaker, there has so far been no evidence, to my knowledge, that these KNIGHTs of Frederick Co., Virginia were Quaker, although there were Quaker KNIGHTs in the county, some of whom migrated, I believe, to Guilford Co., North Carolina and seem to have had mutual associations with our KNIGHTs in Rockingham Co., including the SIMPSONs or their relations.

In 1802, Union Co., South Carolina an estate of George NIGHT: Mentioned, two daughters living Montgomery Co., North Carolina, to sons living Jackson Co., Georgia. Sally NIGHT, admx., Jm Presley NIGHT, Isaac NIGHT, Nancy NIGHT and Mary NIGHT. Also, a Samuel SIMPSON. (Jm Presly KNIGHT’s son, Matthew, married Sarah Elizabeth FULLER, and their son, Benjamin Presley KNIGHT married Sarah Ann Elizabeth LINDLEY, granddaughter of Thomas LINDLEY whose brother, William is mentioned James C. KNIGHT legal records, and is buried Rabon Creek Cemetery.

Concerning ANDERSON (above) and INGRAM (following), see previous article: Note in Shockley genealogy: Agnes SHOCKLEY ENGRAM, fifth child of David SHOCKLEY of Sussex Co., Delaware, will written 1754 and proved 1754 Worcester Co., Maryland.

28 February 1794: Charlton SHOCKLEY of Union Co., South Carolina, to Henry STEVENS of Union Co., for ₤100 sterling, 140 acres in Union Co., bounded by David HOPKINS land on the East, Isaac COOK’s on the west, Thomas SHOCKLEY’s on the North, and Enoch HOLLINGSWORTH’s line on the South. Signed: Charlton (X)  SHOCKLEY. Wit: Thomas (X) KNIGHT, James (X) SHOCKLEY, Judy (X) KNIGHT.

19 February 1795: Thomas SHOCKLEY (Sr.) of Pendleton Co., South Carolina sells to James NIGHT of Union Co., for ₤40, 100 acres in Union Co., Pinkney District, on Waters of Broad and Tyger Rivers, on great road leading from Fishdam Ford to Tyger River. Granted by Hon. William BULL on 18 July 1774. Signed: Thomas (X) SHOCKLEY. Wit: John P. SARTOR, Obediah  ______, Reuben NIGHT.

6 April 1795. Proved in open court by Reuben KNIGHT a deed of conveyance from James SHOCKLEY to James KNIGHT. (Holcombe, Union Co., South Carolina, Minutes of the County Court, 1785-99, p 414.)

Note: It is thought that Hannah, the wife of David KNIGHT b 1772 North Carolina (brother of Thomas KNIGHT married Elizabeth SIMPSON, Sarah KNIGHT married Nathaniel SIMPSON and Mary KNIGHT married Thomas SIMPSON--all of Guilford/Rockingham Co., North Carolina area--the same David KNIGHT who lived Rabon Creek), Hannah’s maiden name was SHOCKLEY. And that she may have had a brother, Salathiel SHOCKLEY, who married a sibling to these KNIGHTs. 1800 Salathial & James SHOCKLEY lived Rabon Creek as David KNIGHT.

Miscellaneous, unordered Orange Co., North Carolina data:

Shields, Ruth Herndon, Abstracts of the Minutes Court . . . Orange Co., Province of North Carolina Sept 1752-1766:

Nov 1761 David KNIGHT vs. Samuel FULTON, debt
Nov 1763 Middleton BRASHEARS vs. David KNIGHT, debt
Nov 1763 Francis NASH, Esq. vs. James, Thomas & David KNIGHT, debt

(Note: This David KNIGHT is thought to be the father of Thomas KNIGHT who married Elizabeth SIMPSON, etc., and Thomas and James KNIGHT sons. Therefore, this David KNIGHT would probably have been a Sr. However, David KNIGHT--referred to as Sr.--also had brother Thomas, and the James KNIGHT of 1790 Dist. 96, South Carolina. Apparently a Samuel FULTON owned land on Deep Creek of Flat River, now eastern Person Co.)

Court began 2nd day of August 1763: Thomas LINLEY, Jr. appointed Overseer of Road in room of William HALLAMS.

(Note: This would most probably be Thomas LINDLEY-­b 1740, and son of Thomas LINDLEY--first cousin of Thomas LINDLEY, Sr. b 1754-60 Orange Co., North Carolina mentioned previously who married Elizabeth HALL and died Laurens Co., South Carolina.

The Granville District of North Carolina, 1748-1763, Abstracts of Land Grants, Vol. II, by Margaret M. Hofmann, p. 245 (Lord Granville to: Patent Book 14, 3624, pg 337) Robert Samuel BRASHER 8 August 1760 381 acres in Orange Co. in Parish of St Matthew on both sides of N and S Buffelo, joining Donnells Corner, John McKNIGHT, DONALDs line, and the mouth of S Buffaloe OR: /s/ Robert Samll BRASHER Wits: Jas WATSON, John LEA examined by W CHURTON and Tho. JONES surveyed 14 July 1758 SOC: Robert BRASHEAR Sr., Jesse BRASHEAR W CHURTON Surveyor

(Note: John McKNIGHT thought, in this case, possibly to be, rather, John KNIGHT, a brother of David KNIGHT, Sr. who by 1790 lived Lancaster Co., South Carolina near many INGRAMs.

Among various BRASHEARS who lived Orange Co., North Carolina (and most probably related), Thomas BRAZIER, . . . third son of William BRASIER, was b 1701 Baltimore Co., Maryland, married (1) Sarah Constance 13 October 1726 in Spesutia Church, St. George Parish, . . . migrated ca 1753

A Thomas BRASHER/BRASLOUR b ca 1644-54, died Baltimore Co., Maryland before 9 March 1709/10 (wife Katherine apparently at about the same time). Bond was posted, the estate ad­ministered, and closed by Andrew ANDERSON 14 April 1711.

But a cursory glance at the 1776 Census of Susquehannah Hundred, Harford Co. (previously old Baltimore Co.), Maryland will reveal even at that late date a semblance of consanguinity (without becoming too involved) in names such as PERKINS, KNIGHT, PENMAN, GILBERT, OSBURN, REESE, HAWKINS, WILLIAMS, ANDERSON, WHITE, and CUMMINGS, most probably familiar to SIMPSON researchers.

Concerning ANDERSON (above) and INGRAM (following), see previous article: Note in Shockley genealogy: Agnes SHOCKLEY ENGRAM, fifth child of David SHOCKLEY of Sussex Co., Delaware, will written 1754 and proved 1754 Worcester Co., Maryland.

28 February 1794: Charlton SHOCKLEY of Union Co., South Carolina, to Henry STEVENS of Union Co., for ₤100 sterling, 140 acres in Union Co., bounded by David HOPKINS land on the East, Isaac COOK’s on the west, Thomas SHOCKLEY’s on the North, and Enoch HOLLINGSWORTH’s line on the South. Signed: Charlton (X)  SHOCKLEY. Wit: Thomas (X) KNIGHT, James (X) SHOCKLEY, Judy (X) KNIGHT.

19 February 1795: Thomas SHOCKLEY (Sr.) of Pendleton Co., South Carolina sells to James NIGHT of Union Co., for ₤40, 100 acres in Union Co., Pinkney District, on Waters of Broad and Tyger Rivers, on great road leading from Fishdam Ford to Tyger River. Granted by Hon. William BULL on 18 July 1774. Signed: Thomas (X) SHOCKLEY. Wit: John P. SARTOR, Obediah  ______, Reuben NIGHT.

6 April 1795. Proved in open court by Reuben KNIGHT a deed of conveyance from James SHOCKLEY to James KNIGHT. (Holcombe, Union Co., South Carolina, Minutes of the County Court, 1785-99, p 414.)

Note: It is thought that Hannah, the wife of David KNIGHT b 1772 North Carolina (brother of Thomas KNIGHT married Elizabeth SIMPSON, Sarah KNIGHT married Nathaniel SIMPSON and Mary KNIGHT married Thomas SIMPSON--all of Guilford/Rockingham Co., North Carolina area--the same David KNIGHT who lived Rabon Creek), Hannah’s maiden name was SHOCKLEY. And that she may have had a brother, Salathiel SHOCKLEY, who married a sibling to these KNIGHTs. 1800 Salathial & James SHOCKLEY lived Rabon Creek as David KNIGHT.

Miscellaneous, unordered Orange Co., North Carolina data:

Shields, Ruth Herndon, Abstracts of the Minutes Court . . . Orange Co., Province of North Carolina Sept 1752-1766:

Nov 1761 David KNIGHT vs. Samuel FULTON, debt
Nov 1763 Middleton BRASHEARS vs. David KNIGHT, debt
Nov 1763 Francis NASH, Esq. vs. James, Thomas & David KNIGHT, debt

(Note: This David KNIGHT is thought to be the father of Thomas KNIGHT who married Elizabeth SIMPSON, etc., and Thomas and James KNIGHT sons. Therefore, this David KNIGHT would probably have been a Sr. However, David KNIGHT--referred to as Sr.--also had brother Thomas, and the James KNIGHT of 1790 Dist. 96, South Carolina. Apparently a Samuel FULTON owned land on Deep Creek of Flat River, now eastern Person Co.)

Court began 2nd day of August 1763: Thomas LINLEY, Jr. appointed Overseer of Road in room of William HALLAMS.

(Note: This would most probably be Thomas LINDLEY-­b 1740, and son of Thomas LINDLEY--first cousin of Thomas LINDLEY, Sr. b 1754-60 Orange Co., North Carolina mentioned previously who married Elizabeth HALL and died Laurens Co., South Carolina.

The Granville District of North Carolina, 1748-1763, Abstracts of Land Grants, Vol. II, by Margaret M. Hofmann, p. 245 (Lord Granville to: Patent Book 14, 3624, pg 337) Robert Samuel BRASHER 8 August 1760 381 acres in Orange Co. in Parish of St Matthew on both sides of N and S Buffelo, joining Donnells Corner, John McKNIGHT, DONALDs line, and the mouth of S Buffaloe OR: /s/ Robert Samll BRASHER Wits: Jas WATSON, John LEA examined by W CHURTON and Tho. JONES surveyed 14 July 1758 SOC: Robert BRASHEAR Sr., Jesse BRASHEAR W CHURTON Surveyor

(Note: John McKNIGHT thought, in this case, possibly to be, rather, John KNIGHT, a brother of David KNIGHT, Sr. who by 1790 lived Lancaster Co., South Carolina near many INGRAMs.

Among various BRASHEARS who lived Orange Co., North Carolina (and most probably related), Thomas BRAZIER, . . . third son of William BRASIER, was b 1701 Baltimore Co., Maryland, married (1) Sarah Constance 13 October 1726 in Spesutia Church, St. George Parish, . . . migrated ca 1753

A Thomas BRASHER/BRASLOUR b ca 1644-54, died Baltimore Co., Maryland before 9 March 1709/10 (wife Katherine apparently at about the same time). Bond was posted, the estate ad­ministered, and closed by Andrew ANDERSON 14 April 1711.

But a cursory glance at the 1776 Census of Susquehannah Hundred, Harford Co. (previously old Baltimore Co.), Maryland will reveal even at that late date a semblance of consanguinity (without becoming too involved) in names such as PERKINS, KNIGHT, PENMAN, GILBERT, OSBURN, REESE, HAWKINS, WILLIAMS, ANDERSON, WHITE, and CUMMINGS, most probably familiar to SIMPSON researchers.
