Information on William Hinds

Subj: Reference to info sent to the Cliff Hinds web site Date:4/25/99 5:32:49 PM Pacific Daylight Time From:hhinds@@blueriver.net (Hubert Hinds) To:hindsfc@@padral.redstone.army.mil, dixonj@@ipa.net, Delijim@@aol.com

Dear Friends (Relatives?):

    Sometime ago I  was on the above web site but just got too busy to be

a part at this time. However, I shared some info that you all submitted with a friend in Frankfort, Ky who was formerly Pres. of the Ky Genealogy Society, Charles Hinds. He is a professional but does not do it for pa I am going to share the following letter I received from him and see if you can help us. He is going to Pennsylvania and Maryland next month to do some more research. The letter is quite long but it may contain some info of interest to you all:

Dear Hubert: We may be on to something here as far as our Hind ancestry goes, but I need help from you in querying the providers of information on the origins and marriages of William Hind l or ll and his son, James Hind, my direct ancestor who came to Lincoln Co., Ky, in 1782, settling on Dix, then Dicks River, named for an Indian chief. His 100 or so acrs was located on both sides of Dix River northwest of the Dicks River Bridge on the Lancaster-Stanford, Ky, road, some couple of miles from that location. The confirmation of James Hind being the son of William Hind l or ll, probably the latter, is in the Garrard Co. Courthouse, Garrard, being the county of location upon its establishment out of Lincoln.

The providers of the information on William Hind l or ll and James Hind, his son ar Cliff Hinds, Judith Dixon, and Jim Veregge. The documentation is not clear in some instances, but they seem to be saying that William Hind ll, the brother of your John, was born in Chester, Pa. ca. 1722 and that he married a woman named Margaret, some two years his junior. From New Garden Community in Chester Co. (located west of Chester), William, who was probably a Quaker, changed his religious profession to that of Presbyterianism, moved with his wife, Margaret, who probably came from a Presbyterian family, first to York Co. in Pa. then , to Virginia where he is a matter of record in Augusta Co., Virginia, with his father, William, in the 1740's, owning property on teh South Fork of the Shenandoah River, acquisred in a deed obtained in Culpepper Co. from a land speculator. James was probably born in 1742 to William ll, though erroneously, placing his birth in Ky in that year. The name of Jame's wife has not emerged in the record, but they believe, as I do, that her first name was probably Nancy.

What these three researchers do not address is the orgin of William l. According to my second Greatgrandfather, William Hind, great grandson of William l, he came from Ireland and owned a plantation in Culpepper Co., Virginia. The Irish orgin fits the Hind Quakers who lived in the upper Darby area, beginning about 1700. He was likely a; brother to James Hind who appeared in Pa. soon after 1700, transferring from the Friends group in County West Meath, Ireland. These Hind family members, almost certainly, came originally from Lancashire in England whre they had been transported to beef up the Irish pale settlement of Englishmen. The Quaker group at Scoforth in Lancashire, who settled in Bucks Co, Pa., have some of the same first names and intermarry with some of the same families as was done by the Upper Darby Hind group. One family with a common tie is the Atkinson Family, Quakers. Other Quaker ties were the Allisons, Turks, Coates, Naylors, and the Frances groups. The Bucks County Hindes preceded the Darby Hindes by some decade. The Culpepper Plantation was a farm bought from a Culpepper County speculator. It lay beyond the Blue Ridge Mountains on the South Fork of the Shenandoah River, outside the BEverly and Fairfax grants, somewhat outside the "cranberry swamps" which begin in the far northeast corner of August County. These swamp lands were partially included in the original map of the Beverly grand issued by the owners, a copy of which I own.

William ll, John, your ancestor, and Samuel l traveled with their father, William from the York County, Pa. location some five to ten miles northeast of York. From there, they probably went to Culpepper Courthouse to purchase cheap land not taken up and outside of the authorized grants. We don't know if this was your John or another. Samuel and your John lived in the middle of the Beverly Grant as they married Presbyterians and continued with that association on into Kentucky.

There is a strong tradition among the Virginia Hindes that the first in our family to come, William l, lived in Delaware County and that he married a Swede and was, then, read out of the Quaker faith. The migration pattern for William l and his descendants seem to be to move west with Lancashire Quakers to Lancaser, Pennsylvania, names by the Quakers before the Scoth-Irish took over, then moved across the Susquehanna River to the conegago vicinity. From there, they probably headed south into Maryland (strong tradition lived in Maryland for awhile), and from there, into Virginia to the Culpepper Courthouse area. Buying land there, they continued on west to one of the gaps through the Blue Ridge, probably, Turks Gap, located their lands in the 1740's. They were taken into Augusta County, though originally the land was in Culpepper. Accordibng to your sources, which makes sense, William l died about 1769 after screwing up a land transfer to William ll which was contested. It seemed to be his intention to see that William lll got the land, but when William ll died about 1773, the land title was in doubt, William ll transfering it, seemingly, to James, my ancestor, who abandoned the land for Kentucky, then filed suit in Kentucky to try and recover it. His appointed attorney was Samuel Scott of Fayette County, and the possessor of the land seemed to be John Allison, a nephew by marriage of James. The ultimate destination for James was Lincoln County, Ky, on Dix River, near the Coates, Turks, Naylors, McClures, and Logans, John Logan, the First Treasure of Kentucky, a kinsman, and a witness to the land settlement upon James's death. Note the progression: Lancaster, England, Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and Lancaster, Kentucky.

Your ancestor, Israel, William, and Alexander, his brothers, lived on the line between what is now Fayette and Jessamine Counties, Ky, I am told, in the Keene area of Jessamine. They were Presbyterians. They had some of the same family associations as James, but the difference was they came from the Beverley Grant, generally settled by non-Scotch-Irish. Now, we know from the Tinkling Spring Presbyterian records that William ll went to this church for a time, maybe until his death in the early 1770's. James, however, connected up with early Virginia Baptists on the frontier, his wife, probably, not a Presbyterian. They were members of the Dicks River and Gilberts Creek Baptist Churches in Lincoln County, Kentucky. Samuel, his son, and my third great grandfather, married into the Traveling Church Arnolds clan, and they became solid Baptists until my brother, Jim, and I switched to other churches, he to Church of Christ, I to Episcopalian.

As you can see, as I get more information, (There just isn't that much), I am tgrying to get a better handle on these Hindes.

                                    Sincerely,    Charles F. Hinds.


Charles is not on the internet so if you can help in any way in suggesting where you got the documentation for the Info you sent and the origin of William l, please send it to me---Hubert Hinds, 2015 N. Quaker Rd, Salem, In 47167. e-mail hhinds@@blueriver.net I will forward it to Charles and if he finds anything of interest on his trip to Pa. and Maryland, I will forward it to you. THANKS!
