50458 Written 4 March 1780, Halifax County, Virginia. See Halifax Co. Willbook 1, pg. 312. Probated by the court of Halifax County on 18 May 1780.

I have attempted to represent the text accurately, though it was not possible to use the obsolete "long-s" characters found in the manuscript. The copy I transcribed preserves these and certain visible erasures which I may one day incorporate when the required browser capability is available.

In general, the text is clear and very legible.

Anthony Buckner is a well-known mystery in Buckner genealogy. His family is fairly well documented in the parish registers of St. Paul's Parish in Stafford County, VA, at least by the standards of 18th century records. This documents the birth of his and Amy's daughter Parthenia (14 Oct 1758), the marriage of "Anthony Buckner Thomas" to Amy Powell (20 Apr 1755), and the birth of "Anthony Buckner son of Jane Kelley alias Thomas" (30 Apr 1731) (All from St. Paul's Parish Register: Stafford-King George Counties, Virginia, 1715-1798, J.B.C. Nicklin, ed., Clearfield Press (date uncertain) - unattributed copies of the same transcriptions have also been published elsewhere).

The usual interpretation of this is that Anthony was the illegitimate son of Jane Kelly and an unknown Buckner. I would go a little further and surmise that Jane Kelly was the widow of Wilford Kelley, who died 24 Aug 1728 (ibid.). Wilford and Jane Kelly had a son Thomas born in 1728 and a daughter Sarah in 1721, and I would also surmise that Jane's maiden name was Thomas. It's not impossible that she was the same Jane Kelly who married Henry Smith on 24 Sep 1733 either, though this connection seems more tenuous.

On the Buckner side, there were numerous Buckners in the parish, and the conventional register transcription records the deaths of two different Anthony Buckners on 21 Mar 1733/4 and 1 Dec 1734. This double death record has led some to suspect errors in the transcription, though in any case there was an Anthony Buckner there in the parish who could reasonably be the father of the present Anthony Buckner. Because an Anthony Buckner is said to have witnessed the estate of John Bulling on Apr 27, 1734 (though I cannot confirm this from the original), the latter death date is probably that of the adult Anthony Buckner, and I have a vague suspicion that the earlier death date was for his son if it is correct. The relationships of these Buckners to the 17th century immigrant brothers John and Phillip Buckner is unclear, though as the earliest Buckner recorded in the register is Robert Buckner (d. 25 Oct 1718) it is natural to suppose that at least some of them descended from Phillip, who named sons Robert and Andrew in his will. Beyond that point, there are several theories, but solid data is lacking. An important question is whether the Robert Buckner who died in 1718 was Robert, Phillip's son, or perhaps Robert's son or even a nephew or cousin. There seems to be a more or less continuous string of records of Robert Buckners from around 1710 up into the late 1720s, but it turns out that the later ones belong to a wholly different Robert Buckner ("of Gloucester County"), who now appears to be a hitherto undocumented son of Thomas Buckner of Gloucester. Thus Robert, Phillip's son, is probably the one who died in 1718 and can be ruled out as Anthony Buckner Thomas's father. Another possibility is that some or all these Buckners in the parish register were children of Anthony Buckner, a contemporary of Robert's who lived in Stafford Co. as late as 1708 and was married to an Ellis. This Anthony may have been the son of the elder Anthony Buckner, who apparently died around 1689 and was probably an immigrant brother of John and Phillip Buckner. However, one other thing we should take into account is that Wilford Kelley's land was located near the Upper Machodoc Creek (now in King George Co.) which is very close to where Phillip lived and on the other side of the county from where Anthony's land was (on the Aquia Creek). William Buckner's land was also in this area, and by 1731 it had descended to his younger son John, who died in 1748 without (known) issue. The list of known male Buckners that would likely have been living in that area thus includes John (son of William, son of John the immigrant), Peyton (probably a son of Robert, but this is uncertain), Anthony Jr. (d. 1734), and another John Buckner who died in 1752. This last John had a sister named Sarah who married Thomas Price. After John's only child Susan (or Susannah) died in 1755, his land was inherited by his sister, so it is clear that Sarah (Buckner) Price was the only legitimate descendant of their father who was alive in 1756. This means that Peyton and John (d. 1752) could not be brothers, as Peyton's children were then still alive. Some evidence suggests that Peyton and John were coheirs of Phillip's 90-odd acre property on Gambo Creek (near Upper Machodoc), which would seem to imply that one was the son of Robert and one was the son of Andrew, though it is not clear which was which. The occurrence of the name "Anthony" is clearly an important clue though. Peyton had a son named Anthony as well, to complicate things. Thus we really have 4 decent possibilities for Anthony Buckner Thomas' father. Anthony Jr. is attractive simply because of the names, plus the likelihood that he had no other offspring, which could explain the apparent legitimization of Anthony Buckner Thomas (and his wealth), but any of the other three John, Peyton, or John is attractive based on the geographic proximity to Wilford Kelley's land.

In Halifax county, Anthony Buckner and/or Thomas is also known from a Feb 1769 court record there in which he was assigned to road service as a corvee, under the name "Anthony Buckner" (the "Thomas" part seems to have disappeared after he left Stafford County).(Halifax Co. VA Plea Book 6, p. 273) [LDS Microfilm 31921, Item 1])

An interesting thing to note is that Anthony was, to judge from his estate, quite successful as a planter. If I might suggest a scenario, it seems to me that Anthony Buckner/Thomas may have ended up being the only surviving son of Anthony Buckner, legitimate or otherwise, and perhaps his father decided to pass on his estate to his bastard, lacking any other close heirs. We should keep in mind though that there were two other Buckners of the same generation from the same area, Peyton and Anthony (later of Wood Co. VA), and the question of the parentage of all three is very open. At any rate, land doesn't appear out of thin air, so it seems likely that Anthony Buckner/Thomas came into a reasonable inheritance at some point in his life.

Several Prince William Co. VA records seem to refer to him as well, particularly one in 1765 where "Anthony Buckner Kelley" and his wife Amy sold 300 acres to Francis Jackson for 25 pounds. The deed indicates that it was part of a parcel of 590 acres they bought from Mason and Mary Bennett in 1760. Deeds from 1766 and 1767 refer to his property line. It is worth noting that Anthony Buckner the immigrant ( 1689) in 1672 received a 2506 acre patent in Stafford County, which he still owned as of 1689 just before his death, so if Anthony Buckner/Thomas/Kelley had inherited that patrilineally from Anthony Jr. and Anthony Sr., then he may have sold that or some portion of it to buy the 590 acres in PWCo. Unfortunately, Stafford Co. records are quite fragmentary from that period, so there are no records known which indicate when and by whom the ~500 acre Stafford plot was disposed of.

Two Halifax deeds from 15 June 1769 and 19 April 1770 also refer to Anthony Buckner's property (Marian Dodson Chiarito, Halifax County, Virginia Deed Book 7 (1767-(1770), p. 365 & 504). Thus they seem to have moved to Halifax in the late 1760s.

A last curious Prince William Co. record indicates that a deed was proved on 1 Mar 1784 by Anthony Buckner. As Anthony Buckner/Thomas/Kelley was dead by then, this probably either was Anthony Buckner later of Wood Co. VA or Anthony Buckner Jr. I don't think Anthony Buckner Jr. was of age by this time, so most likely the former.

In 1782, his widow Amy (Powell) Buckner was enumerated in the Virginia census in Halifax with 10 "white" individuals and 3 "black" individuals. She appears consistently in Halifax tax records at least to 1810. There is a similar 1785 entry for "Avery Backner" (according to the transcription) with 10 "white souls", which is probably her. A 1789 Halifax personal property tax list has "Amey Bucknal" (p.3, taken on July 6th) with herself as the only "white above 21" with 2 whites between 16 and 21 and 8 blacks over 21. In the same tax list, a Thomas Buckner is also listed as a "white above 21" living in the household of George Carrington (p. 6). The long-lived Amey Buckner appears again in page 3 of the 1798 Halifax personal property tax list (2 whites over 16 and 3 blacks), as does Thomas (2 whites over 16 and 2 blacks), as does an "Ellett" Buckner (p.2, with 1 white over 16, perhaps one of the many Aylett Buckners). "Anthoney Buckner", almost certainly the son in the will, appears in 1800 in nearby Pittsylvania Co. as the only white over 16 in the household.

Thomas and "Ellett" Buckner, probably originally "Aylett," do not appear to be Anthony's sons, but it seems possible that they're related somehow. Thomas first appears in Halifax tax lists in 1785 and had at least two sons, of whom Ellett was certainly one. Ellett Buckner of Pittsylvania was also acquitted of a burglary charge brought by Virginia in 1826. They seem to have been neighbors of Bartlett Estes in the Coles Ferry area (north Halifax); in the 1798 Halifax marriage of William Mullins and Frankey Estes, dau. of Bartlett, "Aylett Buckner" was a surety and Thomas Buckner a witness, which would seem to confirm that "Ellet" was one of the many, many Aylett Buckners wandering around Virginia at the time. A Thomas Buckner also witnessed Bartlett Estes's 1803 Halifax will. Thomas Buckner in nearby Rockingham Co. NC in the 1800 census was too young to have been Thomas in the early Halifax tax lists, but it seems likely that they were father and son. A third Buckner in probably the same generation was Phillip Buckner who married Parthena Gresham in Halifax in 1805. Given the sons' names Aylett and Phillip, it seems fairly certain that this elder Thomas Buckner is one of the younger sons of Phillip Buckner and Jane Aylett of Louisa Co. VA.

There were also four Buckners (John A., Frances, Judith, and Elizabeth) who lived in Caswell Co. NC, which borders on Halifax and Rockingham, and were born in Virginia around 1800-1810; they could be descendants of one of these two families.

The estate was appraised (pg. 332) at a value of £ 12944.11. The implements mentioned suggest that his business was a small cotton plantation. One appraisal entry says:

"3 Negroes viz. one Winet ['w'?] 2 childrun"

The significance of "Winet" is unfamilar to me, though I've seen another transcription that reads it as "wench". Amy Buckner's 1784 personal property tax list entry serendipitously gives their names as Nan, Isaac, and Hannah - two of them being under 16.
Notes to the Text

The caret-mark with the 'n' is a spelling correction in the MS.
The significance of the wavy line in the MS is unclear, if it has any significance.
The spelling of "Barthenas" is clear and unmistakable. However, I have found no other mention of "Barthenas" and do not even know the sex of this child. There much evidence that they had a daughter "Parthenia," but it's difficult to reconcile this with the forms of the final and initial letters. If the will was initially dictated or dictated from an original, this may be attributable to an error on the part of a clerk who was not familiar the name. While 'B' for 'P' is a relatively unlikely misreading, the phonetic similarity of the two consonants could lead to a mistake during dictation. However, "Barthena" and slight variants are known in other families, with roughly a 9/100,000 incidence in the 1850 U.S. Census. "Parthena" and variants appeared at 33/100,000 in the same census. Parthenia died May 1 1827 in Pittsylvania Co., VA, apparently unmarried, and her will was executed by Elisha Buckner, probably her brother.
Dullender (also "Dulley"), a daughter, married William WALDEN on 16 Jan. 1794 in Halifax.
"Ricy" or Rice BUCKNER (some researchers call him "James Rice Buckner" but the source for this extra name is not obvious) apparently died in Maury Co., Tennessee between 1840 and 1850 at an advanced age. Elisha apparently migrated with him and apparently died in the mid 1840s. They are both known to have left descendants.
In the MS, the initial capital letter has an upper loop that starts considerably below the apparent normal position for the 'L' making it strongly resemble an 'S', but other evidence suggests that it probably was intended to be an 'L' and not an 'S' as originally read.
"The" here was probably mistakenly written for "be".
{LS} is a representation of an outline figure containing the letters "LS" in imitation of a seal after the common convention of the time. "LS" stands for locus sigilli, Latin for "the place of the seal."

Martha Elizabeth Metz is the name recorded in the family records for our mother. But she was always called Lizzie. She was the first child born to her parents after they moved to Vir­ginia. When she was 12 years old her parents moved from the Welltown property north of Winchester to the farm at Bartonsville. Here she grew to womanhood.

Lizzie liked school. She often told me that she wished for more education than the country school provided. She spoke of a teacher, Mr. Lynch, who offered to give her and her sister Bertie more advanced books if they would come to school during the No. 66

No. 67 No. 71

inter months. She went several months each winter until she was 20 years old, learning, among other things, advanced rhetoric and fine penmanship. Her composition book is a thing of beauty. She also learned to paint with oil paints on felt and glass.

Her father bought an organ when she was fifteen years old. Since she was the last daughter to marry, he gave her the organ when she was married to Amos Eby. This organ is still in the possession of the family, and still can be played. She last played it herself when she was 90 years old; after that she enjoyed hearing her children and grandchildren play it when they visited her. Lizzie taught her daughters to play this organ and to sing. Music was a normal part of their family life. In their courtship days, Amos and Lizzie sang together. They taught their children to sing by the simple method of singing with them. The most tedious and tiresome jobs, such as washing dishes or shelling beans, were lightened by harmonizing hymns and familiar songs.

Lizzie was married to Amos F. Eby November 19, 1896, the year after her parents retired from farming and moved to Maugansville, Maryland. When he was courting her, he used to ride a bicycle from Hagerstown, Maryland to Winchester, Virginia. This was considered a great sport in those days. On one occasion, Adam Baer, his future brother-in-law, rode with him.

The Ebys lived in the vicinity of Hagerstown until 1906, when with their family of five children, they moved to Denbigh, Virginia. They lived in the newly-settled colony of Mennonites there during the next twenty years. Two more children were born there, and their daughter Pearl, who died during the influenza epidemic of 1918, is buried in the cemetery of the Warwick River Mennonite Church. Later they lived three years near Washington, D.C., and their remaining years in Lancaster county, Pennsylvania.

Our parents were known for their hospitality. In almost any place where their children live or travel, we meet somebody who remembers visiting in our home. Our father is remembered for his sociability and sense of humor, and our mother for her ability to entertain and put at ease unexpected guests, regardless of their number.

We all remember her fine sewing. In her girlhood days she made fine quilts, some still in existence. In her married days, with six daughters and a restricted budget, she could sew and remodel and remake garments with a skill that amazes us more now than it did at the time. She loved flowers and trees, and left a trail of blooming plants in the yards and gardens of the houses where she lived.

Our parents were devoted Christians of the Mennonite faith. They brought up their children in the church. They both lived to be old, our father to be 80 years old, our mother to be 94. In her last years she was a shut-in, but she was able to read, write letters, and enjoy visitors until the last day of her life.

Lizzie was the only child of her father, Jacob Metz, whose life span exceeded his in length, and that by only a few months. Father and daughter each lived past 94 years. At her funeral, the hymn, "How Firm a Foundation," was sung. This, she once told me, was her father's favorite hymn. It seemed a fitting hymn to sum up both his life and hers

Golden Wedding Anniversary PDD and JPEG.
September 03, 2000 Typist, David Mahlon Eby(9), Son

Mahlon Jesse Eby(8) as born in McMinnville, Oregon on May 24, 1914 to Jesse S. Eby(7) and Marcia Bartlett Eby, the Eldest Son although his Sister Mildred Fern (Eby)(8) Mallo was born a year earlier. His Brother Floyd Eby(8) was born in Camas, Washington and his youngest brother Delbert Clayton (Pete) Eby(8) was born in McMinnville, Oregon, U.S.A. According to Mahlon and Delbert, their Birth Certificates read "Boy Eby" and Mildred's probably read "Girl Eby" along with the Date of Birth. Since Floyd was born in the State of Washington, it is not known what the "given" name was.

For most of my life, my Dad perpetuated the story that his given name was: "Mahlon Jehoshaphat Eby". I went through the first 40 years of my life believing it and then was told by my Mother the true story. Mahlon's story: "When I was born, the Doctor asked my Mother what name did she want to give me and she said 'Mahlon'. Then the Doctor asked her what his middle name should be and she had not thought of a middle name so she said: 'Jehoshaphat' and the Doctor wrote that name down on the Birth Certificate." Mahlon Jehoshaphat Eby . . . I thought that was a "neat name". After Mahlon had died on July 31, 1989, My Mother told me the true story which in my mind is a better story than the made up one.

When Mahlon and Hope got married, they had to take Mahlon's Birth Certificate along with them AND Jesse and Marcia Eby . . . Mahlon's Parents had to accompany them to attest that "Boy Eby" was indeed Mahlon Jesse Eby. The real Birth Certificate simply read: "Boy Eby" on May 24, 1914.

In November of 1997, I talked to Mahlon's youngest Brother Delbert and he told me that he was named "Boy Eby" as he was also born in McMinnville, Oregon, U.S.A. in 1920. They had their proper name registered on a new Birth Certificate when they became adults. In the old days, many people did not have a "middle name". Harry W. Eby(7), Brother of Jesse S. Eby(7) did not have a "middle name" when he joined the United States Army in 1917 and when they insisted that he have a "middle name" he chose W. for his initial. In the early 1950's I heard his nephews ask him what the W. meant and his reply was "Winesap" !

Mahlon's Dad, Jesse S. Eby(7) had followed the girl of his dreams out to Oregon from the State of Michigan, asked for and was given her hand in Holy Matrimony in Oregon. While there, Jesse and Marcia had three children in Oregon and one in Washington. While in there, Mahlon told me many times about the times that he accompanied his Grandfather Charles Bartlett to Church and to "Tent Meetings.

In his later years, he told me about different memories that he had while in Oregon and Washington. Jesse worked very hard building road by working a "slip scoop" pulled by horses or mules. That job became "slow" so Jesse decided to load up his Model T Ford with 1200 pounds of luggage, 4 children, his wife, himself, with the family dog, and headed for Michigan. Mahlon remembered that the hardest part of the journey was fixing the tires as they would go about 20 miles and have a flat tire which THEY had to fix themselves. If something went wrong with the car, THEY had to repair it.

They all made the trip to Porter Township, Cass County, Michigan, U.S.A. where:

1) Mildred Fern Eby(8) met and married Howard LaVere Mallo. They had a family of 5 boys and 1 daughter, and raised them on a farm located on Teasdale Lake Street in Porter Township, Cass County, Michigan, U.S.A..

2) Mahlon Jesse Eby(8) met and married Hope Delight Burkett and farmed in Porter Township, Cass County, Michigan, U.S.A.. The two farms that he eventually purchased were both located on Teasdale Lake Street west of Robbins Lake Road. The Jesse S. Eby family attended the Porter Baptist Church located on the north west intersection of Teasdale Lake Street and M-40. Mahlon later became a produce hauler starting with a panel truck and when he retired, several semi tractors and trailers hauled eggs to the Kroger Egg Company.

3) Floyd Leroy Eby(8) met and married Betty Dermont and became a School Teacher with Emphasis on Coaching Football, Basketball, Baseball, and Track. Later, Floyd was inducted into the Michigan Coaches Hall of Fame for coaching two State Champion Basketball Teams in different school classifications. He served as the Michigan State President of Gideons International for three years and was responsible for Evangelistic Meetings in more than 40 countries giving away thousands of books that he wrote.

4) Delbert Clayton (Pete) Eby(8) met and married Marjorie Powell and became a farmer north of Union, Porter Township, Cass County, Michigan, U.S.A. during World War II and later owned a paint store and later became involved in Construction. He was also very active in the Gideons both in Florida and Michigan as a speaker and the low profile jobs so necessary to that Ministry.

Mahlon Jesse Eby(8) married Hope Delight Burkett and they are buried at Plum Grove Cemetery in Union, Michigan located on US-12 and Union Road. Delbert & Marjorie (Powell) Eby are buried at Plum Grove Cemetery. Harry W. Eby & Louise Keeler Eby are buried at Plum Grove Cemetery. Ezra & Ruth (East) Eby are buried at Plum Grove Cemetery.

Jesse S. Eby(7) and 1) Marcia Bartlett and 2) Sarah Bernadine Glassburn are buried in Shavehead Cemetery located on Robbins Lake Road in Porter Township, Cass County, Michigan, U.S.A. Mildred Fern Eby(8) and Howard LaVere Mallo are buried in Shavehead Cemetery with their grandson Paul Dale Mallo(10), son of Larry Dale Mallo(9) is buried to the west of them. He was born on June 01, 1970 and died on February 20, 1999.

Mahlon loved to fish. It seemed that he could catch bluegills out of an empty water glass. He would come in with his limit on days when no one else could catch any. He took his son David to Canada for many summer fishing trips hoping for that extra large Northern Pike, or good eating Walleyed Pike or Perch. They were always successful. Their largest Northern Pike was a huge 21 pounder that he insisted be weighed on a grocer's scales so the 21 pounds was FACT not BRAG. He enjoyed music of all kinds shocking his son after a Symphony Orchestra Concert by making good comments. He played the Hawaiian Guitar, the Steel Guitar, and sang bass at church. He especially loved Southern Gospel Quartet Music.

Hi - you have put in a lot of research time. Thanks for sharing your Abernathy line.
I will try to copy & paste info on Stephen & Elizabeth. Hey, it worked!!!

My notes for Elizabeth:
CEMETERY: Arcola Township Cem, Arcola IL
OBIT: copied from article in Arcola IL HERALD newspaper of Friday 06 April 1905: Mrs L L Rentfro an old citizen of the community died Sunday monring. Mrs Elizabeth Rentfro, wife of L L Rentfro, died at her home in this city at an early hour Sunday morning April 2, 1905, after an illness of about two weeks, aged about 70 years. Elizabeth Abernathy was born in Fountain County IN. In 1853 she was married to Stephen Cooper, a former well known citizen who passed away in 1893. To this union eight children were born, six of whom survive, as follows: Mrs Thomas of Arcola; Mrs John Veach, Vandalia MO; Dempse and John Cooper, Menlo, Kansas; Chas Cooper, Okolona, Miss., and Samuel Cooper, Arcola.
