Ancestor Sketch – Burkett Vincent

Howell-Vincent/Vinson
By Don Taylor

Photo of Don Taylor with cat Nasi.When I first discovered the name of my wife’s 3rd great-grandfather on her Vincent line, I thought I had found the most unusual first name ever, the document I found indicated “Barkhead.” Now, I know it was Burkett, but for a while, I was intrigued thinking of what the origins of the name “Barkhead” were.

Howell Family 2019 – Ancestor #36

List of Grandparents

  • Grandfather: James Dallas Howell (1879-1964)
  • 1st Great-grandmother: Susan R. Vinson Howell (1848-1910)
  • 2nd Great-grandfather:  John Vincent (1817-bef. 1870)
  • 3rd Great-grandfather: Burkett Vincent
  • 4th Great-grandfather: (Possibly Philip Vinson[i])

Burkett Vincent (c. 1778 – 1847)

Birth

It is not clear when Burkett Vincent was born. The 1810 Census indicates he was between 26 and 45 years old suggesting a birth between 1765 and 1784. The 1820 Census shows he was still between 26 and 45 years old suggesting a birth between 1775 and 1795, thus narrowing his likely birth year to between 1775 and 1784. His ages during the 1830 and 1840 Censuses indicate he was born between 1770 and 1780, narrowing his likely birth year further to having been born between 1775 and 1780. I choose to use c. 1778 as a date in the middle of the range.

Halifax was a hotbed of revolution during 1775. Moore’s Creek Bridge, in Halifax, was the site of the first battle for independence in North Carolina. The county also gives its name to a resolution that was a precursor to the Declaration of Independence on April 12, 1776, now called “The Halifax Resolves.” It was the first formal call for American sovereignty.[ii]

Childhood

I believe that Philip Vincent was Burkett’s father. If true, it is likely that he had at least three brothers and three sisters. One of his brothers was named Jarrett and was close to the same age as Burkett. A lot more research is needed to understand The Burkett’s family of Halifax, North Carolina.

During the 1790 Census the Philip Vincent family of Halifax, North Carolina consisted of eight individuals. Philip, the only male over 16 in the household, three males under 16, and four females appear to have made up the family. Burkett should have been between 10 and 15 in 1790 and fits nicely as one of the three males under 16 years of age in the household.

During the 1800 Census the Philip Vinson[iii] Family of Halifax, North Carolina, consisted of 10 individuals. Along with Philip, who was over 45, there were four males. Two were 16 to 26 years of age. Burkett should have been between 20 and 25 in 1800 and fits nicely as one of the three males in that age group.

Marriage

It appears that Burkett married sometime between 1800 and 1810, most likely after 1806. The name of his wife is still unknown.

Adult

The 1810 Census shows the Burket[iv] Vincent family of Halifax, North Carolina consisting of Burkett, an apparent wife, who was the same age as Burkett, and one daughter under ten years of age.

Map of Halifax County, North Carolina.

The 1820 Census shows the “Perkit” Vincent family of Halifax, North Carolina consisting of Burkett, and an unknown woman over 45.  If Burkett and his wife were the same age group in 1810, I would expect them to be in the same age in 1820. Because his apparent wife of 1810 appears to have been replaced by a different woman over 45 years of age in the 1820 Census, I suspect that this individual is either a second wife, older sister, or a mother. Living with Burkett are five children – two boys under 10, who I presume to be John and James, and three girls. One is possibly Elisha, and two are still unknown.

The 1830 Census is just a mess.  The census indicates that Burkett’s four boys are missing and four older children are in the household. Likewise, the three daughters of Burkett and Elizabeth appear to be missing, but three older children are enumerated in the household.  For a while I thought I had the wrong family, the surname change between Vinson and Vincent occurred several times for this family line, and maybe this wasn’t one of those times. However, a look at the neighbors during the 1830 Census found several of the same people are still neighbors in the 1840 Census, so I’m reasonably sure it is the right family unit. It is just that the enumerator got his marks off. The number of children and the respective ages of the children are correct.

The 1840 Census finds the Burket Vinson of Halifax County, North Carolina consisting of:

  • Free White Persons – Males – 60 thru 69: 1 – Presumed to be Burket Vinson (Senior).
  • Free White Persons – Males – 20 thru 29: 1 – Presumed to be John Vincent, Age 23. (b. 1817).
  • Free White Persons – Males – 15 thru 19: 1 – Probably Burkett (Junior?), age 16.
  • Free White Persons – Females – 50 thru 59: 1 Presumed to be Elizabeth (wife of Burkett)
  • Free White Persons – Females – 15 thru 19: 1 Presumed to be Nancy, age 15 (b. 1825).

Death & Burial

I am yet to find any definitive death information regarding Burkett. Other researchers indicate he died about 1847. His death in 1847 is consistent with the 1850 Census that suggests that his wife Elizabeth and daughter Nancy are living in the same location (next door to John Vincent – Elizabeth’s son) without Burkett.

Events by Location

Halifax County, NC – All events in Burkett Vincent’s/Vinson’s life take place in Halifax County, North Carolina.

Further Actions / Follow-up

  • Determine or verify the BMD information on all of Burkett’s children who are believed to be John, James, Elisha, Susan, Nancy, Burkett, and William Hiram.

Halifax County, NC, Vincent and Vinson in the 1790 Census

Census Sunday
Howell-Vincent/Vinson
By Don Taylor

The 1790 Census drives home the notion that Vinson and Vincent seem to be interchangeable in this family line. The Philip Vinson of the 1800 Census is clearly Philip Vincent in the 1790 Census. His family unit consists is identified as 1 3 4 0 2  10.  That is 1 male over 16, 3 males under 16, and 4 females. All three males between 10 and 26 during the 1800 Census are represented in the males under 16 in the 1790 Census. Likewise, all the females listed in the 1800 census are represented in the 1790 Census.

Philip Vincent            1 3 4 – 2 10    (Left Column – 11th entry down)

So, from the two censuses I believe:

  • Philip Vinson/Vincent was born before 1755. (He was over 45 during the 1800 Census)
  • The suspected wife of Philip was also born before 1755. (She was also over 45 during the 1800 Census.)
  • They appear to have had six children, three boys and three girls.
  • 1 boy born 1790 to 1800
  • 1 boy born 1784 to 1790
  • 2 boys born 1774 to 1787 – One appears to be Burkett (born between 1775 and 1780)
  • 3 girls born 1784 to 1790 – No names.

The 1790 Census also includes five households with the surname Vinson. Willis is clearly the same as Willys in the 1800 Census.

  • Willis Vinson –         1 1 4 – – 6       (right column – 15th from bottom)
  • John Vinson –           1 1 1 – – 3       (left column – 3rd from bottom)
  • Benjamin Vinson – 1 2 2 – – 5       (right column – 2nd from top)
  • Charles Vinson –     1 3 2 – – 6       (right column – 10th from bottom)
  • Hanna Vinson –       0 0 4 – – 4       (right column 14th from bottom)

Note: The numbers above represent Free White Males 16 and up, Free White Males under 16, Free White Females, all other persons, slaves, and a total number of people.

If Burkett was born between 1775 and 1780, I would expect him to be reflected in this census as a Free White Male under 16 years of age. All of the households have male members that fit that criteria except for Hanna Vinson.

Based upon the 1800 Census[i], I had tentatively considered Philip to be Burkett’s father. There is nothing in the 1790 Census that would dissuade me from that hypothesis.

If you have evidence that Burkett’s father is not Philip, I would love to hear from you and learn what you have.

The Longs of Martin County – Part 3 of 3 – Findings

Howell-Hobbs-Long

After reviewing the 1850 and 1840 Census records for Martin County, North Carolina, I developed a hypothesis that Samuel Aquilla Long is the son of Stephen Long. The Stephen Long household did not exist in Martin County in 1850 but in 1840 consisted of the following:

MALES

  • 10-15   2        Two Unknown Males born 1825-1830.
  • 15-20   1        Unknown Male born 1820-1825
  • 20-30   1        Unknown Male born 1810-1820 (Could be Samuel Aquilla Long)
  • 30-40   1        Unknown Male born 1800-1810
  • 40-50   1        Assumed to be Stephen Long

FEMALES

  • 20-30    1      Unknown Female born 1820-1830.
  • 50-60    1      Apparently Stephen’s wife.

Shipwreck of the Comet.

I then began searching for documents or records that would fit this family in various sources. Immediately, I found a series of articles on Newspapers.Com. According to the articles, Stephen Long owned the schooner, Comet. The Comet had left Turks Island fully loaded with salt and wrecked at North Point of Breakers, near Ocracoke Island. Two of Stephen Long’s sons died in the ship’s sinking along with the Captain. The tragedy of the loss was compounded when the distraught widow of the Captain committed suicide by drowning herself and her two small children.[i]

Wilmington Journal – January 30, 1846

As for Stephen Long’s sons, one article described the two as “promising, interesting youths, in the very morning of Manhood, the pride and hope of their heart-stricken, unfortunate parent.” The two youngest males in the 1840 census would have been between 16 and 21 in 1846. To me, that sounds much like “the very morning of manhood. I searched many places to find their names and have been unsuccessful in finding them. Because they died so young and there was no mention of them having children, I am identifying them simply as:

FNU son of Stephen Long born after 1825 and before 1830; died 6 Jan 1846.

That still leaves three males in the household where one of them could be my wife’s 2nd great-grandfather, Samuel Aquilla Long.

Court Case for Stephen Long

Next, I found an appeal to the North Carolina Supreme Court on Google Books.[ii] The appeal mentions that Stephen Long sued William L. Mizell. Before the case came to the Martin County Superior Court, in June 1849, Stephen Long died. The judge postponed the case until the next session of the court, August 1849. For this session, Edgar A. Long, the executor of Stephen’s estate, was the new petitioner. After the case was heard and decided but before any execution orders were issued, Edgar A. Long died. Who was going to receive the money owed was to be determined by the State Supreme Court in 1851.

It is often the case that the eldest son is the executor of a person’s estate, so I penciled in Edgar A. Long as the oldest son of Stephen Long.

Unknown Male born 1800-1810 – Possibly Edgar A. Long who died in 1849.

The Will of Stephen Long

Now knowing there was an executor for Stephen Long’s estate, I began looking for probate or will for Stephen.

I was able to find a will for Stephen at Ancestry.Com in “North Carolina, Wills and Probate Records, 1665-1998.”[iii]

The will was quite straight forward. My transcription:

Will of Stephen Long

In the name of God Amen! I Stephen Long of the town of Williamston, Martin County being of sound disposing mind and memory do make, ordain and publish this my last will and testament.

1st I desire that all my just debt be paid.

2[nd] I give to my all loved wife, Frerella [Avrella??] Long all my land, negros, and property both real and personal during her natural life.

3rd after my wife death I give and bequeath all my land, negros, and real and personal property to my three sons, Adolphus, Pierce, and John equally to be divided between them.

4th I nominate constitute and appoint my son Adolphus, Long, sole Executor to this my last will and testament in testimony I have documents set my hand and seal the 11th day of August 1843 on the presence of

Wm Woodard
L Whittlesey

Stephen Long (seal)

Conclusion

I’ve learned that Stephen’s three living (in 1843) sons were Adolphus, Pierce, and John. I also learned that Samuel Aquilla Long was not one of  Stephen’s sons. So, it is back to the drawing board.  I didn’t see any other reasonable candidates other than this in the 1840 Census. I know that the 23-year-old Samuel Aquilla Long could have been living anywhere during the 1840 Census, but I’m hoping he was probably living with his parents during the 1830 Census. When I next return to researching this line, I’ll look at the 1830 Census and see what possibilities are there.

The Longs of Martin County – Part 2 of 3 – The 1840 Census

Census Sunday
Howell-Hobbs-Long

The parents of my wife’s 2nd great-grandfather, Samuel Aquilla Long, are unknown. Some researchers indicate that his father’s name is John, however, I can find no source for that suggestion.  FamilySearch and Ancestry have no other suggestions nor hints about his family. Previously, I looked at the Longs of Martin County in the 1850 Census. In this posting, I continue my research for Samuel and his parents in the 1840 Census.

Martin County, NC

Samuel was born about 1817 in Martin County, North Carolina.  He married Martha Ann Bryan in 1844.  Because that, I suspect he was enumerated in the 1840 Census as a single 23-year-old living with his parent or parents.

1840 Census

The 1840 Census does not provide the names of individuals in a household; it only provides the name of the head of the household. The 1840 Census provides the names of four heads of households in Martin County, North Carolina; Joshua Long, Stephen Long, Gracey Long, and W. B. Long. Could any of these households include Samuel?

The Joshua Long Household[i]

 The Joshua Long 1840 Census household is clearly the same household as existed in 1850. All of the children in the 1850 Census are apparent in the 1840 Census.

  • James, & A.I. Long appear to be there as males born between 1830-1835
  • William appears to be a male born between 1825 and 1830.
  • John also appears to be enumerated as a male born between 1820 to 1825.

There is another male, unknown born between 1820 and 1825 who was not with the family during the 1850 Census. Samuel would have been 23 during the 1840 Census, so it is unlikely for him to be that unknown individual.

The Stephen Long Household[ii]

The Stephen Long Household includes 8 people, six males. Stephen is obviously one of the males, leaving five unknown males. One of them is in the 20 to 30-year-old range; Samuel would have been 23-years-old in 1840 so this is a possible match.

MALES

  • 10-15   2        Two Unknown Males born 1825-1830.
  • 15-20   1        Unknown Male born 1820-1825
  • 20-30   1        Unknown Male born 1810-1820 – (Samuel Aquilla Long?)
  • 30-40   1        Unknown Male born 1800-1810
  • 40-50   1        Apparently Stephen Long

FEMALES

  • 20-30    1   Unknown Female born 1820-1830.
  • 50-60    1   Apparently Stephen’s wife.

The ages don’t appear to be quite right for the Stephen Long household to be a traditional family. Rather, I suspect that there may be a sibling and/or a sibling’s spouse living with the household.

The Gracey Long Household[iii]

The Gracey Long household consists of Gracey and two young females. Samuel could not have been a member of that family.

The W. B. Long “Household”[iv]

The W. B. Long household only consists of the 20 to 30-year-old William[v]. Additionally, he lives next to Gracey and looks like he might be an adult child of Gracey’s.

Conclusion

If Samuel Aquilla Long was born in 1816-1817 and if he was enumerated in Martin County during the 1840 Census, then the only entry that fits him is to be in the household of Stephen Long in 1840.  As such, I will tentatively identify his father as Stephen Long.

Next, I’ll see what other records I can find in the 1840-1850 time period relating to the Longs of Martin County and see how they connect this family.

The Longs of Martin County – Part 1 of 3 – The 1850 Census

Howell-Hobbs-Long
Census Sunday

The parents of my wife’s 2nd great-grandfather, Samuel Aquilla Long, are unknown. Some researchers indicate that his father’s name is John. However, I can find no source for that suggestion.  FamilySearch and Ancestry have no other suggestions nor hints about his family. Without any clues to his parents, I decided to do a quick locational surname study and see what I can find.

What I think I know

Martin County, NC

Samuel was born about 1817 in Martin County, North Carolina.  He married Martha Ann Bryan in 1844 and appeared in the 1850 Census living in Martin County.  Because of that, I suspect he was enumerated in the earlier censuses 1820-1840, which only shows the name of the head of the household.

The 1850 Census, which provides the names of individuals in a household, although not relationships, is a good place to begin.

1850 Census

The Joshua Long household appears to be a traditional family, parents and six children. His is a new household to me. I do not know how they are related, so I entered them as an unrelated household with estimated birth years,

Joshua Long Household[i]

Household Role Sex Age Birthplace
Joshua Long M 59 North Carolina
Nancy Long F 50 North Carolina
John Long M 25 North Carolina
Wm Long M 24 North Carolina
James Long M 18 North Carolina
A. I. Long M 16 North Carolina
Mary I Long F 13 North Carolina
Ann P Long F 10 North Carolina

The Sam C A Long (Samuel A. Long) household appears to be a traditional family, parents and four children.  Samuel is my wife’s 2nd Great-Grandfather’s household in 1850. I confirmed all entries were in my database already. Approximate Birth Year, Birthplace, and Residence on 1 June 1850.

Samuel Long Household[ii]

Household Role Sex Age Birthplace
Sam C A Long[iii] M 33 North Carolina
Ann Long F 27
John Long M 9
Jas Long M 7
Wm Long M 5
May Long F 2

(Note: Ditto marks were not entered on this page; I assumed that the Birthplace was North Carolina for the other members of the household.)

William Long – Next Door to Samuel Long[iv]

Next door to Samuel Long is William Long. Samuel is dwelling 638 and Family 503. William is dwelling 639 and family 504.  William is 28 years old and owns the property valued at $1300. By the census, within the same family unit are three additional dwellings with the following occupants.

  • 660 Thos (Thomas) Parmer (age 65)
  • 661 George Rawls (Age 33) apparently with wife Gatsy, and 4 children.
  • 662 Elizabeth Johnson (age 60) with apparently three adult children.

Certainly, it is likely that William Long is related to Samuel Long. With Samuel being 33 and William being 28, I guess that they are probably brothers or 1st cousins.  The people in the three additional dwellings are also possibly related. But for now, I’ll enter William Long as unrelated into my system but leave a note about the other individuals in his file.

Living with Sheriff Mooring[v]

Finally, there is the household of A. S. Mooring. He is the 33-year-old Sherriff. His household, #29, consists of 14 people. Six of the people are Moorings and appear to be the Sheriff, his wife, and four children. Besides them, there are three females, Mary A C Long, A. E. Long, and Cindarilla Whitaker. Finally, there are five males in their 20s and 30s. Mary A. C. Long is 30 and A E Long is 12.

Next, I’ll look at the 1840 Census and see if I can place some of these individuals into households….
