John Haworth & Mary Garner (6G Grandparents)

John Birth 1724 Pennsylvania, United States Death Solebury,Bucks,Pennsylvania ---- Mary Birth 1722 Germany Death 24 Jan 1805 Haverford, Chester, Pennsylvania ---- ---- John HAWORTH Birth:1730 Buckingham, Bucks, Pennsylvania Death:6 Jan 1789 Haverford, Chester, Pennsylvania Marriage:4 Oct 1749 Buckingham, Bucks, Pennsylvania Father: George HAWORTH Mother: Sarah SCARBOROUGH ---- Mary GARNER Birth: Abt 1722 of Buckingham, Bucks, Pennsylvania Death: 24 Jan 1805 Haverford, Chester, Pennsylvania Father: John GARNER Mother: Hannah ----,_Bucks_County,_Pennsylvania,_Pennsylvania --- I think these 6th great grandparents were the 3rd great grandparents of Herbert Clark Hoover the 31st president of the USA. ---- Information about one of their relatives ---- ---- DESCENDANTS OF GEORGE AND MARY (SCARBO) HAWORTH 2nd Generation 1. STEPHANUS HAWORTH, 1st child of George(1) and Mary (Scarbo) Haworth, left Virginia, probably about 1763, and went to North Carolina, where it is thought he settled on the Yadkin River in Rowan County. For complete record of his descendants see Vol I, pages 6 to 42. 2. ABSALOM HAWORTH, 2nd child of George(1) end Mary (Scarbo) Haworth, lived and died in Virginia, but his descendants went from there into North Carolina, Tennessee, Ohio and Indiana. For complete record of his descendants see Vol I, pages 43 to 70. 3. JOHN HAWORTH, 3rd child of George(1) and Mary (Scarbo) Haworth, died without issue. Where he died is not stated. See Vol I, page 71. (Note: John Haworth md 1749 Mary Garner from them descended President Herbert Hoover - Comp. of Amer. Gen., Archives SL, Hopewell Friends History. The fact that Hoover was a descendant of George Haworth and Mary Scarborough was confirmed by personal correspondence with the Hoover family genealogist in which she offered for sale a book on Mr. Hoover's ancestors including the couple, Mrs. Hatchett) 4. JAMES HAWORTH, 4th child of George(1) and Mary (Scarbo) Haworth, "lived In Fredrick County, Virginia. He married Sarah Wood and died leaving her with six children. Sarah then married Peter Ruble and had four children, one son and three daughters." At this date it is not exactly clear why many of the Haworth family traditions centered around James(2) the son of George, the Emigrant. Several of these Mr. Davis proved to be totally without foundation. One tradition said that James and his brother George joined Daniel Boone in North Carolina, and went with him to Kentucky in 1773. There is a story of James' having been a Revolutionary soldier in the Battle of Guilford Court House in 1781. Another report had it that he left North Carolina and went to Ohio in l800. A logical deduction is that James was born about 1710 or 1712. With his death occurring early enough for his wife to remarry and raise a second family of four children, he could not have been in North Carolina either in 1773 or 1781, nor could he have been in Ohio in 1800. The Revolutionary War record was likely the wishful thinking of some descendant with a longing for membership in the D.A.R. The son of James(2), James Haworth, Jr. (3) did go with his brother, George and Daniel Boone to Kentucky. He was also in North Carolina during the revolution, but his having any military record is unlikely. For generations that branch of the Haworth family adhered to the Quaker faith. The New Garden Friends Meeting of Guilford disowned its members, who participated in any military activity. The young Friends of military age did not lack courage, but so strong were their religious scruples against war that many of them sought sanctuary in the hostile Indian country of Tennessee rather than take up arms for a cause with which they were really in sympathy. Among those who fled to Tennessee in 1781 were Richard and George Haworth, brothers of James Jr., and there is every indication that James Jr. accompanied them. Consideration of the facts would lead one to believe that James Haworth(2) not only lived in Virginia, but that he died there too. His children left Virginia and went to North Carolina, Tennessee, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and points west.

Thomas Herbert & Hannah Winter (6G Grandparents)

Thomas Herbert Birth 1730 Germany (not sure if this is accurate) Burial Abt 1800 ---- Hannah Winters Birth Abt 1734 of Middletown, Monmouth, New Jersey, USA Death Deceased ---- This might be them... "Thomas Herbert III married Hannah Winter October 21, 1751, in Monmouth Co, NJ. (6; Appendix) Hannah Winter was the daughter of Andrew Winter, the son of William Winter and Hannah Grover. The Winter and Grover families were pioneers of Monmouth Co, New Jersey. Andrew Winter was born about 1790, and died before April 30, 1760. Andrew Winter's daughter, Catherine Winter, married James Bray.(7) Thomas and Hannah Herbert in 1766 in Kingwood Township, Hunterdon Co, NJ, had neighbors Joseph Everits of Kingwood Township, who in a deed dated October 6th, 1766, sold his property (277 acres) to Smith Cornwell of Bucks Co, Pa. The deed described the tract lying along "Abraham Gray's line" near "Thomas Herbert's plantation" and "Hezekiah Bonham's & Daniel Everit's line." (8) Abraham Gray Sr. died 1782 in Kingwood Twp., Hunterdon Co, NJ. His wife was Ariaantje Aertsen, and his children included Anne Gray, Daniel Gray & Isaac Gray Sr. (8a) Baptist interest at Kingwood Township began in 1722. By 1734, Kingwood Township has eight Baptist families. Mr. Thomas Curtis, a minister and a member of Hopewell Church, supervised construction of a small meeting house. James Bray and his wife, former members of Middletown (Holmdel), a son of John Bray (who built the 3rd house of worship and parsonage at Holmdel in 1705) arrived in Kingwood Township.(9) John Bray of Middletown had acquired 500 acres in the Baptistown area; and in 1737, he bought another 1,000 acres. In 1748, a year after the Kingwood Baptist Church was founded, John and James Bray moved from Middletown to Kingwood. At the formation of the Kingwood Baptist Church in 1742, all member signed a covenant formally and solemnly obligating themselves to live up to its rules and to accept penalties for transgression of those rules. Thomas and his wife Hannah Herbert were members of the Kingwood Baptist Church at Baptistown. (10) Thomas Herbert became Deacon of Kingwood Church on 21st of October 1765. Hannah (Winter) Herbert was baptized (adult baptism) on 21st of June 1766. (11) The Winter, Bray and Herbert family lived in Kingwood Township, Hunterdon Co, in the years before the Revolutionary War. Thomas Herbert was "excluded" from Kingwood Church 12th of October 1770; Hannah Herbert was "dismissed" toward the end of October 1776. Dismissal was for the purpose of membership to another church; exclusion was for chastisement. Thomas Herbert sold his "plantation" Sept. 5, 1770, to Isaac Gray and Hendrick Gulick (12) Thomas Herbert IV and Josiah Herbert, sons of Thomas III, removed to Loudoun Co Va. in 1772. Thomas Herbert remained in Hunterdon Co as shown by final settlement of "mortgage debt" to James Gray and John Jones in August, 1774. Andrew Bray Esq. settled his debt to Thomas Herbert at the same time. (see #12 under Hunterdon Co NJ Common Pleas Court Entries next)" ---- This might be them too: Re: Stewart Herbert, Indian War veteran maureen harbourt (View posts) Posted: 14 Feb 2005 10:51AM GMT Classification: Query I also noticed that when Stewart Herbert Jr. died in 1795 in Hagerstown MD, the executor of his will was John Winter. There are several Herbert-Winter connections in the NJ line. Thomas Herbert married Hannah Winter, d/o Andrew Winter in abt 1750 in NJ. Their sons, Josiah and Thomas moved to first Loudoun, then Berkeley Co Va [less than 50 miles from Hagerstown]. Josiah served in Rev. War also - with Virginia troops [was at Ft. ? at Steubenville OH] their cousin of some sort - Peter Herbert moved to Loudon, then Berkeley [now Morgan Co VA - the line I am researching. Lived very near Sleepy Creek and Berkeley Springs] There was another group of related Herberts who came from NJ to Loudoun [George, John -William] just before Rev. War[. There are Winter or Winters families that came about same time or earlier. More puzzle pieces. ---- Thomas Herbert died. Thomas married Hannah Winter on 21 Oct 1751 in , Monmouth, New Jersey. Hannah Winter [Parents] was born about 1729 in of, , Monmouth, New Jersey. She died. Hannah married Thomas Herbert on 21 Oct 1751 in , Monmouth, New Jersey. ---- Peter Harbourt/Herbert Sr. came from NJ to Loudoun Co VA in abt 1772 and is on the tax records there through the 1780's. Also on the tax records were his relatives, Thomas Herbert and his wife Hannah Winters, along with their son Josiah Herbert b. 1755. There were also a John and a William Herbert that appeared at the same time. The relationship of Peter Sr. to these others is not yet definitevely known. However, records of the North Fork Batptist Church in Loudoun show that Peter Sr. and Josiah belonged to the same church. Further, Peter's daughter Mary Joanna, married John Helm Jr. and Josiah married John's sister or 1st cousin Margaret Helm. Josiah later became a Baptist preacher and moved to KY. ----
