The research for this volume of The DuPre' Trail has come to an end reluctantly. It was as exciting as that for Volume I; however, there are questions that remain unanswered. Most gratifying was the discovery of proofs that will correct an old lineage - that of Daniel Deupree of Oglethorpe County, Georgia - long perpetuated incorrectly.

The dominant purpose of this research was to find the immigrant ancestors’ records, as the sponsors are aware. Much work was done toward this in 1965 (see The DuPre Trail, Vol. I) by this researcher. Back to Virginia this took me to begin a page by page examination of early Isle of Wight and Henrico County records, as well as some others. As you will discern, this was not of significant success although several weeks were used for this effort.

It seemed for a time that this researcher would have very little to report On account of the failure of the above; however, by resorting to all available indices of many county records, much pertinent DuPreana was obtained. To this were added Pitt County, N. C., and some Tennessee

records from the files of Mrs. Martin Ellison, Coral Gables, Fla., and Mrs. John S. Litchfield Fort Lee, Va., for which we are grateful and extend our thanks. Thanks also are extended to Miriam Pritchard Skelton (Mrs. Clarence Cunningham Ske1ton), Atlanta, Ga., for a portion of the Putnam and Oglethorpe County records; to Mary W. DuPree (Mrs. Henry Gibson DuPree), Jacksonville, Fla., for the U. S. Treasury Loan Records, 1779, and for various miscellaneous items; to Grace DeuPree (Mrs. Charles Lamar DeuPree), Dallas, Texas, and to Dr. Allen Dupree King, Wilmington, Del., for items credited to them in the text. We are grateful to each of these for their contributions.

In grateful appreciation I extend thanks to the many public officials in county courthouses, libraries, and the State Archives in Atlanta, Ga., Columbia, S. C., and Richmond, Va. All were most gracious in giving their assistance when needed.

My thanks to each of the sponsors of this research for making it possible. It is regretted that more could not be accomplished in the time allotted, but I hope you Will find herein something useful to you in your own research.

An effort was made to avoid errors; however, they have a way of creeping in! It is to be hoped that you will forgive my imperfections.

VIRGINIA

The Henry E. Huntington Library and Art Gallery, San Marine, California, 96028, has the original King William Parish Register (Henrico County, Va.) under File Classification BR 139. A & B, according to Mr. Beverly Fleet who compiled many of the "Virginia Colonial Abstracts". He stated that a photostatic copy of this Register had been sent to the Virginia State Library. Upon inquiry at the Library and the Archives, the information was that this evidently was in error, as they had no record of having received it. It was thought that an examination of the original or photostatic copy might reveal information on the early DuPre family that presently does not show in the copies available in print (Brook, Va. Hist. Mag., etc.). It is recognized that old manuscript documents are very difficult to read. King William Parish served the French Protestant refugees who settled at Manakintowne, and the records, therefore, are of considerable importance in any research of this group.

Also at the Huntington Library are documents and correspondence of the LIPSCOMBE Family (1770-1883) under File BR - Bares 28.29.

Below appear a few items from R. A. Brock's list of "Documents, Chiefly Unpublished (1936)," in Vol. 5 of the Collections of the Virginia Historical Society, obtained by him from the King William Parish Register:

p. 78 - The 21st Feb. 1721, was b. Jean Gil (mer)... of Jean Gasper (Gil)mer & of Susanne, his wife, was baptz. by Mr. Fontaine. He was presented far baptism by Daniel Maubain & Nicolas Soullee, ... Mary Dupree, wife of Jean Dupree. the parties have declared that this child was b. the day & yearabove. J. Soblet, Clerk.

p. 85.- 15 Mch 1730/31. was b. a black boy named Jame to Jan Dupre.
p. 83. - 13 Dec 1729, w. b. to Jean Dupre, a black boy named Pierre.
p. 87 - 28 Dec 1732 was b. to Jean Dupre an black named Pierre.
p. 98 - The 7th Dec. 1739, was b. Elizabeth Forqueran, dau. of Moyse Forqueran
& of Susane, his wife; was baptd by Mr. Gavain; had for g-father, Jean Chastain;
for g-mother, Magdalaine Gueran & Moyse Forqueran.
p. 99 - 12 9ber 1739. eras b. Laraus Bryers, s. of Edward Bryers & of Sara, his
wife. Had for g-father - Mattieu Bingly & Rene Chastain; for g-mother
Janne Dupre.
p. 97 - 23rd 8ber 1738 was b. Jean Roberd, s. of Jean Roberd S. of Janne, his
wife; had for g-fathers, Moyse & Pierre Forqueran; for godmother, Janne Dupre.
Comment: One of the early French Huguenots at Manakintowne was JEAN
FORQUERAN. He perhaps was the first husband of Janne Dupre, who after his
death married Jean Dupre (Jean Dupre d. 1734/5 - See Vol. I, p. 2, DuPre Trail).

According to the following, Peter Forqueran was the son of Janne (Jane) Dupre.

Henrico Co. Records - Deeds, Wills (1725-1737), page 567:

(1695-1706), p. 621r. To Robert Easly tract of 315 acres of land lying and being in the County of Henrico (Virginia) on Reedy Creek, for the transportation of seven persons into this Colony whose names are to be in the records mentioned under this Patent. 20 Oct. 1704.
(Comment: the list of names was not given).

Bk. 10 (1710-1719), p. 378. To Thos. Jefferson, Thomas Turpin, John

Artcher & Robert Eseley, tract of 1,500 acres of land on Fine Creek, Henrico Co. - uppr Branch of $ountain Creek, down that Branch at a
fine Fall for a mile 12 July 1718. (Comment: This would be Robert Easley, Jr., as Sr. had died in 1711 - see DuPre Trail, Vol. I, p. 3).

This Patent gave the names of 18 persons brought into the Colony by the above named however, none appeared to be of interest to this

  "Memoirs of a Huguenot Family" (Translated and compiled scan the original autobiography of the Rev. James Fontaine, the father of the Fontaines who came to America - by Ann Maury 1853). This book was studied carefully for mention of any of the DuPre family; however, none was found. In fact few were mentioned other than family. It seems that John Fontaine was the first to come to Virginia, arriving an the ship "The Dove", May 28, l715.

There was a drawing of a map at the head of a letter written from "Lunenburg Va. 9 July 1752", by Peter Fontaine, Jun. of Rock Castle, Hanover Co., Va., showing the location of Christiana Fort "now deserted" in Brunswick Co., in the far western part of the county on the Meherrin River.

 

HENRICO COUNTY - Order Book 1719-1724.

This book shows that the Will of JOHN FORQUERAN was probated in 1720 and Inventory of the Estate filed. In 1721 the Estate account was filed. The Will book for this period is missing.

NEW KENT COUNTY -

The few items extant far this county were examined. These included some miscellaneous Deeds among manuscript papers; however, there was only one dated prior to 1800. Negative.

WARWICK COUNTY -
All extant records were examined - negative. These were miscellaneous court papers far the year 1665 and for the years 1701-17 26

 MIDDLESEX COUNTY -

Ref: Pariah Register of Christ Church, Virginia, 1653-1812. (Colonial Dames Edition, 1897)
(Christ Church of Middlesex County) p. 35 - ABRAHAM DEPREE & REBECCA SMITH, both of Rappahannock marryed
3d July 1687.

 

ESSEX COUNTY -

Orders, 1695-1699 (Reel 65 (M/f), p. 21: August 10, 1696. Upon the motion of ELIZABETH DEPREE the last Will & Testament of her farmer Husband Richard Smith was proved by the oath of Daniel Whitborne and Qrd'd to be recorded.
Deeds Wills Etc

Deeds, Wills, Etc. 1695-1699, Bk. 9, p. 55 M/f Reel 2):
Will of Richard Smith. Proved Aug. Court 1696 Whitborne. Legatees: Daughter, Sarry Smith, all land and slaves. Daughter, Rebecca Smith, cow and calf, etc. Wife, Rebecca Smith. Witnesses, Daniell Whiteborne & Joan Laney.

Comment: Note the wife's name was shown as "Rebecca Smith''. It was Rebecca Smith who m. Abraham Depree (above). The Orders may have been incorrectly recorded as "Elizabeth".

Deed Book 9, p. 81, 1696. July 27. Brookes, Peter

Creditor to ABRAHAM DEPREE. Whereas it has been made appear before me by Peter Brookes that Abra Depree Standeth indebted to him by bill in ye sum of 1100 Ibs of tobo. & hath absented himself out of the County whereby ye ordinary way of proceeding agst him for recovery of said debt shall and therefore in his Mas (Majesty's) name to witt require you to attach So much of the tobo of ye sd Depree where it may be found in this County as will Satisfie ye sd debt with.... that you make and return of the precept with your proceeding therein to ye next Court held for this County, hereof faile not given under my hand this 27th of July 1696.

Tho Edmundson

By virtue of the above precept I attacht a gray Horse belonging to ye said Depree likewise all his tools that is in ye hands (of) George Turner also What money .....Knot with him.

Orders 1695-1699, p. 36. 11 Nov. 1696. Brookes' suit against Depree dismissed for want of prosecution.

Comment: Embrey's Index of Old Rappahannock County records to 1692 and Essex Co. records, 1692-1700, were thoroughly checked for further mention of a Depree; however, none was found. - It was noted that in 1699 George Turner sued Jacob Devilliard on some matter, the suit being dismissed.

This confirms that there were other French there prior to 1700.

 

JAMES CITY COUNTY -

Unfortunately no records are extant for this county. In 1957 the Rev. Lindsay O. Duvall compiled what records he could muster for The period 1634 - 1904, and published them in Virginia Colonial Abstracts, Series 2, Vol. 4. A search of these records was negative for DuPre. James City included the town only. James City Island included all the Island outside the city.

Va. Patent dated 26 April 1681r granted 593 acres of land to JAMES HALEY for the transportation of four persons, unnamed. The land adjoined Jones, Doby, Wolf, Lewis, Phillips - crossing the James Town Road adj, Freeman and "to ye path". (Patent Bk. 7 (1679-1689), Vol. 1, Pt. 1).

Also same Patent book, p. 261r: 16 Apr 1683, to Edward Ellerby 100 acres in James City County, from the James River along Msr Powell's line of marked trees, north and eastwardly. Part of Patent of 600 acres granted Wm Haveat (?) 20 Oct 1661, who by last will & testament 25 Aug 1666 did bequest part to Wm Strong who on 8 Oct 167T by Deed conveyed the 100 acres, part of the 600 acres, to Stephen Butts. That part of James City County west of the Chickahominy River was annexed to Charles City County in 1720. Surry County was formed from James City County in 1652. A study of the formation of the counties comprising the Commonwealth of Virginia would be very useful when genealogical research is undertaken.

 

ISLE OF WIGHT COUNTY, VIRGINIA

Deed 9k. 1 (1688-1704), p. 280. The name of Abraham Tooke was found on a Deed here dated 9 Oct. 1697/8. During the years covered by this Deed book, other names familiar in connection with the Dupree family appear, viz: Benjamin Chapman, Sullivant, Williamson, Bateman, Green, Bagnall, Hogin,

Comment: Isle Wight County records are said to be complete from 1636; however, they are in no "easy" research order. Wills, Deeds, and Orders are mixed in the same volumes, and while a volume may be marked to include (for instance) records from 1662 to 1715 there might be several years' records missing entirely. They of course may be found in another volume. Due to the fact that Louis Dupre and Lurana Dupre were known to have been in Isle of Wight Co. in 1720 (see elsewhere above), several volumes were checked page by page. The indices of the following volumes were checked:

LUNENBURG COUNTY VIRGINIA

Will Bk. 1, p. 38
Will of John Willingham, dated 2 Feb. 1750; probated 1 Oct. 1751.
Sons: John, Thomas, and Gerrald Willingham.
Daus: AMEY and Betty Willingham; also Christian Willingham.
Wife: Mary Willingham, Executrix.
Witnesses: George Martin John x Wllingham (LS)
George H. Walton
Nathl (?) DeGraffendreide

Comment: Amey Willingham became the wife of LEWIS DUPREE, son of Thomas Dupree of Lunenburg Co. (See 1772 Deed, p. 8 of Vol. I, DuPre Trail) Lewis later (1784) married Median Atkinson. (See p. 91, Ditto).

WILL Bk· 2, p. 10

Will of Stephen Wiles, dated 5 May 1762; proved 1 June 1762.

Wife: Mary Wiles - Bed and furniture; also 1 Bay mare I bought of Lewis Dupree; the land where I now live containing 200 a. and my Entire on the Great Branch of Sions' (?) Creek, with the rest of my Estate (other than that elsewhere bequeathed) to be sold and my debts paid, etc.

I will that tract of land at the Mouth of Great B____ Creek ... came by Patent to me in my own name and Lewis Dupree's ... that my Executors...etc. should make them deeds to Robert Wiles one for the upper Half and Joseph Dupree for the other.

To Thomas Wiles all my Right and Title of that Track of land my father left me of the south side of the Roanoke River opposite the Mouth of Bl___ton's Creek.

I will that Thomas Wiles and Joseph Dupree should be my Executors.
Witnesses: Neavill Buchannan Robert Miles Stephen x Wiles (LS)
Luke Wiles, Aron x Pinson.

Comment: The thought occurs that JOSEPH DUPREE might have married a daughter of Stephen Wiles, else why did he bequeath this land to Joseph Dupree, rather than his old friend, Joseph's brother Lewis? Further research needed here.

JOSEPH DUPREE witnessed the Will of Cornelius Crenshaw, 9 Feb. 1786.

Comment: This Will book contains the records of many Lunenburg Co. marriages performed by DAVD ELLINGTON, Minister, Baptist,.

Account admitted to record.

Comment: This appears to be the last accounting made by the Guardian. Guardians' Accounts through 1810 were checked. - The THOMAS DUPREE, dec'd, to whom the above records refer was not the Thomas Dupree who died in this (Lunenburg) County in 1786 (Will abstract, DuPre Trail, Vol. I, p. 7), It appears from a study of the records that the Thomas Dupree mentioned in the records above was a son of LEWIS DUPREE, who was a son of Thomas of Lunenburg Co. Thomas who left the orphans Mary, Susannah A , and Banister, died in Charlotte Co., Va. Inventory and Appraisal of his Estate was filed in that county Oct. 23, 1782. (See under Charlotte Co. herein).It is not known by this researcher what, if any, relationship there was between this Thomas Dupree, dec'd, and Nathaniel and Thomas Dacus. We find the Dupree and Dacus families still closely associated in the early 1800's in Laurens Co., South Carolina. (See Will of Henry Atkinson later). "Bannister DuPree's, age 50-60, appears on the 1830 Census for Pickens Dist., S. C. (See later).

Comment: On page 106 of Deed Book 24, there is a Deed recorded dated 16 Dec. 1815, wherein the Grantors, Edmund Dupree and Elizabeth his wife of Lunenburg Co., sell 522 acres of land in the same county to Coleman Jeffreys. The location of this land was at the junction of Swift Creek and Spring Branch to a point in the fence in Jno Dupuy's line. Although the Index gives the spelling of Edmund's name as "Dupree", the recorded Deed shows that both he and Elizabeth signed their names as "Dupuy:. Dupuy apparently is correct.

It is suggested that Vol. I of The DuPre Trail be consulted for additional abstracts of Lunenburg Co. records.

Winslow Robinson (.)

Comment: The foregoing was a "rejected" claim; however, the reasons were not given. Several correspondents give the year of his birth as 1759; he therefore would have been of a suitable age to have seen some military service during the Revolutionary' War. It is possible that his wife did not give adequate details of his service, making it impossible for the Pension Office to identify.

 

The reader will identify Nancy Bailey Dupree as William's second wife. His first wife was Amey Pettus. (Deed signed by William and Amy, p. 22; also, Will of John Pettus, Sr., p.

COMMENT:

It is obvious from the court records that the Dupree, DeuPree families of Lunenburg, Charlotte, Mecklenburg, and Halifax Counties are closely related, all being descendants of THOMAS and wife, SUSANNAH, of Lunenburg. The inference also is clear that this THOMAS was the son of THOMAS who died ca 1725 Henrico County and his wife, Margaret Easley Dupray. (See Vol. I, Dupre Trail).

THOMAS and SUSANNAH DEUPREE had the following children:

1. Lewis Deupree, m. 1) Amy Willingham; 2) Median Atkinson.
2. Joseph Deupree, m. Madame Nannie Sullivan (? - Unproven).
3. Elizabeth, m. Thomas Whitlock
4. Margaret, m. David Stokes, Sr.
5. Mary, m. William Brizendine.
(For proofs, consult Vols. I and II, The DuPre Trail).

LEWIS and AMY (WILLINGHAM DEUPREE had:

1. Drury Deupree, m. Ann Atkinson (dau. of Median above).
2. Daniel Deupree, m. Sally Ellington.
3. Lewis Jr.
4. Sarah Deupree, m. James Pinson.
5. Ann Deupree, m. Daniel Weatherford
6. Thomas (d. Charlotte Co. 1782 may have been a son).

Lewis and Amy Deupree may have had other children, and it is believed that JOHN DUPREE who shows up on Mecklenburg Co. Personal Property Tax Lists may have been his son and Amy's. This probably was the John Dupree who married Nancy Short of Mecklenburg Co. (Vol. I and Vol. II, The DuPre Trail).

 

JOSEPH DEUPREE and his wife (name unproved) had:

1. William Deupree, m. 1) Amey Pettus, 2) Nancy Bailey (widow).
2. Nanny m 1) Daniel Crenshaw; 2) Richard Knott.
(There may have been others,deceased, and not named in Will).

 

The children of the daughters of THOMAS and SUSANNAH DEUPREE, Elizabeth, Margaret, and Mary are mentioned in the Will of Thomas Dupree. (Vol. 1).

 

Drury and Daniel Deupree, sons of Lewis and Amy, and perhaps Lewis and his second wife, Median (Atkinson), moved on to Laurens Co., S. C. about 1795. A Lewis Dupree died there in 1799, and Drury was appointed administrator of his Estate. By that time, Daniel had removed to Oglethorpe Co., Ga.; he reared a large family, and died there in 1848. (See later). - A study of the records and other information in Vols. I and II, The DuPre Trail, will confirm that this DANIEL DEUPREE, who died in Oglethorpe Co: Ga., was not the son of Lewis DuPre who died in Little River, S. C., and was of Brunswick Co., N. C., as erroneously claimed by various persons through the past years. Some lineages have been built on this premise, but they no longer should be perpetuated. Apparently no proof has ever been offered in support of the claim that LEWIS DUPRE of Brunswick Co. , N. C., had any children, although it is likely that he did. This researcher attempted to prove or disprove the assumption that he had children, but to no avail; neither could his wife's name be learned.

It is suggested that the reader follow through on the above to Laurens Co., S. C., and Oglethorpe Co., Ga., records herein.

Marriage Notices from The Family Visitor, Apr. 6, 1822 - Apr. 3, 1824.
(Ref: The Virginia Magazine, Vol, 67, 1959, p. 326):

(Married in Richmond) Capt. Isham G. Lundy, to Miss Eliza A. Dupree,
both of Greenville (sic) Co, - September 13, 1823.

The Virginia Magazine of History & Biography, Vol, 65 (1957), p. 134,
gives the following as AMENDMENTS TO RELIQUES OF THE RIVES, by J. Rives Childs:

"Hannah Rives, widow of Simon Rives, married 2nd Lewis Dupree. In her will dated 1806 and probated in 1816, Lexington Dist.,
S. C. she mentions her son Simon Rives and her grand-children Lewis Dupree, Jessie, Timothy, and Mary Ann. These last were
presumably the children of Reed and Mary (Rives) Dupree."

This researcher questions the accuracy of the statement that Hannah Rives married 2nd Lewis Dupree. Hannah Rives (not Dupree) made a Deed of
Gift, 12 Oct, 1816 (not 1806), in Lexington District, S. C., which was proved 20 May 1817, No Will was found, The Dupree children mentioned in
the Deed of Gift were indeed Hannah's grandchildren, as they were the children of Reed Dupree, son of Lewis Dupree, and Reed's wife, Mary (Rives) Dupree, Hannah Rives' daughter by her deceased husband, Simon Rives. Incidentally, another daughter of Reed and Mary (Rives) Dupree also was
mentioned in the Deed of Gift, namely, Priscilla Mathis, and her husband, Dr, John Mathis. (See Vol, I, The DuPre Trail), Hannah's daughter, Mary,
also was mentioned as Mary Stewart, wife of Nathaniel W. Stewart. Mary had married the latter after Reed Dupree's death ca 1805 in Washington Co., Ga.

The Deed records herein and in Vol. I, also the Personal Property and Land Tax Lists herein for Greensville Co., show that the only Lewis Dupree Mr. Childs possibly could have referred to either sold his land, with the exception of 39 and 24 acre tracts, or devised the remainder by Deed of Gift to his son, James Dupree, together with all household equipment, farm stock and equipment, his "Great Bible", and a number of Negroes, in 1793· Other Negroes were devised to other of his sons and daughters and to one grandchild in 1795. His name appeared on the Land Tax lists with the two tracts of 39 and 24 acres each for the last time in 1798. The Personal Property Tax List for 1795 shows Lewis Dupree as the "taxpayer" and with James Dupree, above age 21, living in the household. For the years 1796, 1797, and 1798, this situation was reversed, and James was shown as the taxpayer with Lewis, above age 21, in the household. After 1798 only James is listed for Personal Property Tax, and through 1802. The Land Tax Lists do not show James as paying taxes on his father's 39 and 24 acres. More study needs to be done on this in an effort to learn what disposition was made of Lewis's acreage. - This researcher believes he died 1798 or 1799."

Hannah Rives sold her 335 acres of land in 1793 to Joshua Mayes. The previous year she was shown paying Personal Property Tax, with her son,
Thomas Rives, above 21, in her household. It is presumed that she moved on to South Carolina about the time she sold her land in 1793.

*(See records of Northampton Co., N. C., for adequate proof that Lewis Dupree was deceased before 23 Oct. 1804).

Certain Bank Notes issued by the Continental Congress during the Revolution were recalled in 1779 due to the great increase in number in circulation through counterfitting by unscrupulous persons. Those holding issues of May 20, 1777 and April 11, 1778, were requested to bring them to the Virginia Continental Loan Office by June 1779. The time later was extended to Dec. 31, 1779. A list was made of those who turned in their Bank Notes, their place of abode, date, and the amount,/ is now in the National Archives in one of the books of the old loan records of the Treasury Department.

In the name of God, amen, I, Robert Esley of the parish and county of Henrico, being weak of body but of perfect mind and memory, praise be to God, do make and ordain my last will and testament in manner and form following: First I recommend my soul to God that gave it, hoping through the mercies of Jesus Christ to receive free pardon and forgiveness of all my sins, and as for my temporal estate I dispose of it as follows:
Item.. I give and bequeath to my son John Esley and to my son Warham Esley and to my daughter Margaret Dupray, wife of Thomas Dupray, 500 acres of land lying upon Fine Creek to be divided among them and their heirs forever, but in case any of them die before age and without issue, then to return to the survivor or survivors.
Item.

Item. : I give and bequeath to my loving wife Ann Esely all movables, good and chattels whatsoever, and make her whole executrix of this my last will and testament, and I do hereby make void all former wills by me heretofore made.

Ref: The Huguenot Society Publication (Va.)

Vol. 2, p. 17 - Daniel Guerrant and wife, Marie, were settlers at Manakin
(Va.) ca 1699, having come from Saintogne, France.

p. 24 - The Huguenots endured all the vicissitudes of a new colony;
however, they did not abandon the nicer amenities
of life. They did not forget that they came from the "most
polished country in the world".

 

Vol, 3, p. 35 - A number of Huguenot families, including the Blanchard family,
went to Newberne, N. C., from Virginia, and later on to South
Carolina "living across the Santee".

Vol. 6, p. 66 - Dr. H. n. McIlwaine, former Librarian of the Virginia State
Library, stated that the term "Huguenots" was never used in
the official records of the State, nor did the French
Protestant refugees call themselves Huguenots. They consid-
ered it a term of reproach applied to them by their enemies.
It first came into use about 1560, but its origin is not
known. The term afterwards was accepted by them because of
its convenience, and also because of the heroism shown in the
persecution by many called Huguenots.

Most of the French refugees who came to Virginia ca 1700
settled at Manakin The first ship to arrive was the "Mary
and Ann the second, the "Peter and Anthony". The third
ship came about the 20th of October 1700; however, the name
of the ship nor the number of passengers was recorded. Only
a few of these passengers went to Manakintowne, and nearly
all others dispersed into various parts of the Colony. The
fourth ship under Capt. Tragian arrived March 5, 1701, hav-
ing sailed from Blackwall Dec, 8, 1700.

p. 103. A member of the French Academy stated after reading the
excellent book, "The Defender of the Sovereignty of the
People", concerning the Huguenots, "what great ancestors
were those Huguenots!". Another called them "the salt of
France ".

p. 108 - The greater part of the Huguenots came to America from
La Rochelle.

p. 87 - The Manakin Church is now in Powhatan County (Va. )

Vol. 7, P· 265 - Paul Micau, b. 1658; d. 1736, was a French Physician and
a Huguenot. He was born in Nantes, France; came to America
and settled in Essex County, Va., on the Rappahannock River.
He had spent many years in exile in England.

Vol. 8, p. 163 - The Huguenot refugees were exempted from taxes for 7 years.

p. 166 - Robert Beverly's history and account af the refugees in
1705 stated that the 10,000 acres of land set aside in
Henrico Co. for the refugees were entirely on the south side
of the James River. Goochland Co. was formed from this in
in 1727, and included all of the present counties of
Cumberland and Powhatan. Chesterfield Co. was formed from
a part of Henrico in 1749. In 1748 Cumberland was formed
from Goochland and a part of what is now Buckingham Co., and
included what is now Powhatan.

Robert Beverly's history further states that the French Hugue-
nots were naturalized by a Special law for that purpose.

 

p. 171 - The age of Tithables was given as all male persons of the age
of 16 yrs, and upward, and all Negro, mulatto, and Indian
women of 16 yrs. and up and not free.

Vol. 9, p. 162 - The Marquis De La Muce in 1700 led more than 500 French Hugue-
nots to America and settled in Virginia. Most of these settled
in Manakintavn, but some settled around Jamestown, others near
Norfolk, and others in Surry County.

p. 170.- Huguenots had settled on the Neuse and Pamlico Rivers in North
Carolina, but most of these were wiped out by the Indian upris-
ing of 1711-12. Others lost their lives in a Yellow fever
epidemic. Many who survived returned to Virginia from whence
they originally had come.

p. 172 - Some Manakin families gradually moved on down through North
Carolina to the Santee region of South Carolina.

Vol. 11, p. 68 - Some French Huguenots settled in Stafford County between the
Rappahannock and Potomac Rivers before 1700.
.

Vol. 18, p. 115 - The DeLamar family came first to Maryland, then into Virginia..
This Huguenot family now is known as the Lamar family

Vol. 19, p. 119 - "English Duplicates of Lost Virginia Records" A List of
French Refugees as compiled by Des Cognets for the years 1700
and 1701/2. (Only a few are given below):

Pierre Perrat & his vrife. (Comment: Pierre Perut was
shown on list of Tithers in the household of
Jean Dupre for the years 1724, 1725, & 1726).

Loys du Pyn. (Comment: This name does not appear again in
any records found to date. It is wondered if
this was the Louis DuPre who later is found in
records of Isle of Wight County.)

Jean Pepup. (Comment: This is believed to be Jean DuPre
of whom there are records in King William parish,
This last name is spelled "Pepuy" in another
account, so it is possible that it was very diffi-
cult to read).

This list of passengers referred to above arrived in Virginia
on the ship "Mary & Ann", July 31, 1700.

There is an excellent hand-written auto-biography of JAMES D. EASLEY, SR.,
of South Carolina, in the State Archives of Virginia, Richmond, entitled,
"Memoirs of James D. Easley, Sr.". The Archives file number is 24647. This
auto-biography gives an account of his parents and grand-parents, born in
Virginia in the 1700s. He had brothers Warham, Thomas, and Robert, indica-
ting that he was a descendant of Robert Easley (wife Ann) who died 1711,
Henric a C a., Va. A daughter of the latter couple, Margaret Easley, married
Thomas Dupray who died ca 1725 Henrico Co. She later married James Watson.

Seaborn Mims, J. P. Jeremiah Dupree

Deposition No. 1 establishes that the death of Lewis Dupree, Sr., of
Greensville Co., Va., occurred prior to Oct. 23, 1804. (He disappears from
the Tax Lists after the 1798 listing). While these documents do not speci-
fically state that he is deceased, it must be presumed that had he been alive
he could have settled the question of ownership of the Negro Abram, making
a suit in Court unnecessary. In the case of James Horton against James
Dupree (see p. 573 we find that this case was established already by 2 May
1808 and possibly before. It could not have been instituted before the death
of Lewis Dupree, Sr., as his being deceased was a factor in the case. Note
the Court's question on 28 Oct. 1811, "In whom was the title of the Negro
Stephen at the death of Lewis Dupree?"

The case of James Horton against Jesse Dupree re ownership of the Negro
Abram establishes that Dolly Dupree, the grand-daughter of Lewis Dupree, Sr.,
was the illegitimate daughter of Rebecca Dupree, and not the daughter of
her brother, James Dupree, and his wife named Dolly.

The family to which Jesse Dupree belonged has not been proven, although
from a number of records, including the case above, the inference is rather
clear that he was a son of Lewis Dupree, Sr., and brother of Rebecca Horton,
Elizabeth Gregory, Jeremiah, James, Reid, and Cordall Dupree.

Ex parte
This case coming on to (be) heard on the petition and report
of the Master (of the Crt), the Court declares its opinion
to be that made- Madison Dupree is unable to educate the
petitioner his son in the manner suitable to his degree and
just expectations in life, and that it is expedient that he
should be educated out of his own income, which appears to
the Court to be amply sufficient for that purpose, the Court
therefore allows and directs his guardian Whitmel H. Anthony
to educate him in a liberal manner and to put him to schools
fitting and becoming his age, advancement in learning and
capacity- and for this purpose the said guardian to appropri-
ate annually, if needed, the sum of $300. (Guardian to furn-
ish financial report annually to the Court, etc.).

the following Deed listed:
Dupree, Christianna - Children of, from Rachael Sanders, 1821.

This Deed could not be located in the book cited, and evidently it was
read incorrectly. According to the listing of other Deeds, the correct
book number was perhaps 4, for the year 1821. - It was regretted that further
checking could not be undertaken in the time allotted.

Ref: The Cape Fear (Rivers of America), by Malcolm Ross, 1965:

Mr. Ross states that the "Goose Creek Faction" of South Carolina,
after up-setting the proprietary government, moved on to the Lower
Cape Fear. Their leaders were the Moores, whose ancestor was Roger
Moore, a descendant of Irish kings and leader of an Irish Rebellion
at the time of the Roundhead wars. James Moore, Roger's son, was the
first of the Moores to come to the Charleston Colony. He married
Sir John Yeaman's step-daughter, Margaret Berringer. Of their nine
children, James, Jr., Maurice, Roger, and Nathaniel pioneered in the
Cape Fear region; spear-headed the settlement after the pirates were
banished about 1725. Maurice actually was the one who planned the
settlement. His first wife was the widow of Col. Samuel Swann, and
daughter of Major Alexander Lillington. Maurice Moore's second wife
was a Porter. - Brunswick, N. C., was planned by Maurice in 1726.
Orton Plantation, just north of Brunswick, was owned by Roger Moore,
He built the beautiful house there that still stands, and with its gar-
dens has become a sight-seeing attraction.

It is thought by some that the DuPres (Duprees) of the Cape
Fear Region came from Virginia. The information above has been given
to show that it is more than likely they came from the Charleston region
than from Virginia, admitting that the latter was possible.

Lewis Dupree (Duepree) no doubt was the father of Daniel and Drury, It could
not have been Drury's son, as Drury had not been married but fifteen years
(p. 16), nor could it have been Daniel's and Drury's brother, Lewis Jarrell
Dupree, who was in Oglethorpe Co., Ga., in 1803, 1805, 1806, and 1807. (See

tions that Nathaniel Stewart was living in Greenville Dist.; S. C., in 1800,
having formerly moved there from Surry Co., N. C., between 1790 and 1800.

ary War and fought at Guilford Court House. After the War he
returned to Brunswick Co. (afterwards in the Greensville Co. area),

OGLETHORPE CO. Wills, Bk. D, p. 231 (Ga. Archives M/f Rleel 46-11):
Will of Daniel Deupree, Lexington, Georgia, 23 Feb. 1848.
....etc.... I would remark that in distribution of my property heretofore
made among my children, my object has been equality. If I have not suc-
ceeded the failure has been unintentional. I have not now, nor have had
heretofore, any partialities to gratify or Prejudices to overcame. I love
all my children and my constant aim has been to give each one an equal share
of my estate. I have previous to the year 1846, given to each of my children,
property & money to the amount of three thousand dollars. During the year
1846, I gave property to the children of my deceased son, Joseph to the value
of $1600.00. To my daughter, Lucy Lumpkin, property to the value of $1700.00.
To each of my sons, Daniel & Elijah, property to the value of $1600.50. I was
willing to give at the same time to my son in law John Starnes property to
the value of $1600.00 provided he would obligate himself to hand it over &
convey it at the death of his wife, Elizabeth Starnes, to the Children of my
said daughter, Elizabeth, by her previous husband, Josiah Rainey- John Starnes
was unwilling to receive said property upon this condition, and the final ar-
rangement was for Starnes to take property to the value of $1000.00 for which
he gave nis note payable to myself or my legal representative, twelve months
after the death of my said daughter, Elizabeth, and I gave to four of the
children of my said daughter Elizabeth, by her first husband Rainey, each in

cash, the sum of $100.32 and hold now in my hands for the other child of my
said daughter, Elizabeth Decatur Rainey, the sum of $139.00. ..... hereby
give to the children of my said daughter, Elizabeth by her first husband,
Josiah Rainey, the aforesaid note of $1000.00 or the proceeds of the same
....etc. .......the widow of my son, William E. Deupree, is now and has been
in possession of a tract in Noxibee County, Mississippi, containing 440 acres,
which tract of land I purchased from my two sons, Elijah & Daniel,
I will and devise said tract of land to Elizabeth Deupree, widow of my
dead son, William E. during her life or widowhood and at her death or mar-
riage, said land to be sold and the money equally divided among the children
and representatives of children of my said son, William This land is
to be valued at the final distribution of my estate at $3520.00. ..... my
daughter Lucy Lumpkin's gift of land valued at $1700.00....no tan absolute
gift, but given during the life of my said daughter, Lucy, and at her death
to be equally divided among her children and the representives of children,
.....at the same time....daughter, Lucy, received this property, I took lands
from Samuel Lumpkin to amount to...value of said property, at death of his
wife.... etc.
I give to my beloved wife, Sarah, absolutely & forever one negro girl
by the name of Fannie about 12 years old. I lend to my said wife during her
life time, all the rest and residue of my estate not mentioned in this will,
both real and personal.
..... the residue of the money disposed of in the following manner:
One sixth to my son, Daniel...one sixth...son, Elijah. One sixth...the
children of son, Joseph, dec'd. One sixth to children of son, William E. &
repre. of them. One sixth to dau./children of Elizabeth by first husband Rainey.
One sixth to dau. Lucy Lumpkin….
I have excluded from a participation of my property, the child of My
daughter Elizabeth by her husband John Starnes, not because I love him less
than the others, but because he is well provided for, letter than his Rainey
brothers and sisters.

 I appoint Daniel Deupree ad Eiljah Deupree and Lewis J. Deupree

The two letters below were copied from a manuscript file at the Virginia
Historical Society Library, 428 N. Boulevard, Richmond, Va., File Classifi-
cation: Mss 1 B 1463b 5514-5765. Box 23 of 197, THE BAGBY FAMILY PAPERS,
Section 46 (DU-GIB). The letters were written by LOUIS J. DUPRE' Clinton,
Miss., to the wife of GEORGE W. BAGBY and to the Virginia State Library,
respectively, both of Richmond, Va. (Letters inadvertently reversed below).

Note: George William Bagby (1828-1883) was Publisher of the Lynchburg
Express; wrote for Harper's New Monthly Magazine; was Editor of the Southern
Literary Messenger; and was an author and a lecturer, generally in the light
vein.

Each of the letters referred to bore a l x 1 picture of their author
pasted on the upper left corner of the first page, under which he had signed
his name as shown above, but omitting the "J". Only the signature to the
second letter shows the "J".

The first letter was written on letter-head stationery captioned,
"EDITORIAL ROOMS DAILY NEWS, Birmingham, Ala." Birmingham, Ala., had been
struck through, and the letter was headed Clinton, Mississippi",

To the Librarian

When I was last in Richmond Mrs D'r Geo. W. Bagby
filled the office to which you have been assigned. I had met her at her
house in Richmond. Her husband & I were associated for a time as Journalists
in the "Old Whig" office, "bello flagrantion" in Richmond. I hope she still
serves the State & will be kind enough to answer the questions I propound.

With great respect I am
yrs very truly
Louis DuPre'

(Note: The questions he referred to were not with this letter, nor were
they located).

The second letter was typewritten, double spaced, on legal size paper.

(2) Clinton, Mississippi April 6th 1891

Dear Mrs Bagby;

My acquaintance and friendly relations with Dr. Bagby began even
in my boyhood. He and I and the late Sunset Cox of glorious memory
"et in Washington at Buchanan's inauguration. I remained some weeks in the
Fed. capital while whe (sie) Dr. was there only a day or two. But we
never forgot the accident and good fortune involved in this day spent so
joyously with the most brilliant youth, as Mr. Cox was then esteemed, of his
time. But he and Tom Corwin were inveterate jesters as matchless orators
and I had the good fortune to hear Corwin tell my late father-in-law,
James C. Jones that if he had never "cracked a jode he would have been
President."

Then again, in 1863 when for a time I was Clerk of a Com. on Military
affairs of the Confed. Congress, I made Dr. Bagby's my office which was that
of Mr, Moseley Ed, of the Old Richmond Whig. Do you remember Mr. Moseley?
What a frank, confiding, generous old gentleman he was! I was introduced to
him by Dr. B. as a "newspaper man". An hour later Mr. Moseley was summoned to
the country. I was still in in Dr. B 's "telegraph" apartment. He approached
me saying, "you have been reading the Whig and know what it advocates and
opposes". " want you to run it for me till I return',. Do you know that I
will be more boastful of this trust reposed and of the fidlity (sie) and skill.
With which I executed it than of laudation conceded by the Dep't of State when
I served it in an international embroglio By the way, Mr. Moseley --and. Gov.
Jones were singularly alike in person, stature - singularly tall and slendor --
and their photographs were fac similes. Jones was born at the Hermitage in
Tenn. but his father and mother were Virginians as are these all of people that
get to heaven I humbly imagine - when writing to a loyal Virginenne And this
leads me to inquire whether, in delveng (sie) amon:g old books or pamphlets
which I exploited somewhat when I was Committee clerk, as aforesaid
State Library, you ever encountered any allusion to persons of:--- name
grandfather, Dan'l DuPre was, in his youth, a soldier under LaFayette
to be 90 years old dying, in 1848, in Lexington Va. I used to hear and see the
the old gentleman when he was "fighting all his battles o'er again". The old
man never loved Gee. Washington, He said that he and and LaFayette starved out
(p. 2) Cornwallis and finally cooped him up in Yorktown. Then came DeGresse
and Hochambeau, and when the French, under LaFayette, an land, and under De-
Grease, at sea, had won the victory, "the good and great G. W. hustled down from
Tappul were (sie) he had been hanging poor Andre far six or 8 months, and nod-
estly received Cornwallis' sword reporting to Congress a greet Victory for she
Country,s paternal ancestor, so-called.

Many thanks, Mrs Bagby, for answers to to those historical and other
questions propounded The others, unanswered are immaterial.

It occurs to me at the moment, that I have a letter from Hon. Henry L.
Bentley of Abeline Texas - the matchless orator of those parts - inquiring
about the history and deeds of my grandfather. Bentley's grandfather was also
named Dan'l DuPre. He was forty years Pres't and Cashier of the state Bank Of
N. C. at Raleigh. He and my grandfather (sie), I opine, were first cousins.
Their father or grandfather came, with senator Bayard's people, to Phil'a about
1670. That's all I know about them. My great grandfather owned thie site of
the present town of Manchester your Richmond suburb. He sold 99 year leases,
These expired about thirty years ago. Christian and Carrington were employed
by the heirs of this old Dan'l DuPre, my grandfather, to sue for the property.
All records had been burned twice or thrice. We could prove nothing, and the
legislature of Va properly legislatd to quiet titles and very properly I was
suppressed. However I am pleased to tell you that I am the hereditary owner
of much realty about Richmond. The additional fact remains to be stated that
my mother's name was Francine Bolling Cox and this fact induced me to seek the
acquaintance of Sunset Cox, as heretofore stated. Two of my' mother's uncles
were in the battle at Monmouth Court House, N. J. One was wounded and remained
in tht (sie) State and was married there. I fancied that Sunset Cox (barn in
N.J.) might be my cousin. I mentioned the matter once. He only laughed at the
odd conceit saying "I always knew that I was of royal blood." My mother's
mother eras named Cabinesse.; her grandfather was John Cox to whom the Crown
issued a grant on parchment from King Charles, I think it was, conveying
to "John Cox Gent". the County of Dinwiddie. My father's home was
destroyed bello flagrante with every old book and heirloom of the house. I
wish to answer Mr. Bentley's letter. Before doing so I would gladly hear
from you. There is something in that old Library about every old family of
the old Dominion. I am, with sincere regard,
Yrs sincerely
Louis J. DuPre'
On the reverse of the last page of the above letter was the following in
long-hand:

You had an admirable portrait of Henry Clay & I have his watch. Don't
you remember the conversation evoked by these facts at your home?

(Also) Gov. 6( U. S. Senator James C. Jones was named James "Chamberlayne"
Jones. See what is said of him within.

The picture of Louis J. DuPre referred to earlier is of a fine looking,
bearded man, somewhat past middle-age It is regretted that it cannot be
reproduced herein.

Letter No. 2 is valuable for the family information it gives, most of
which can be taken as fact. However, it should be evaluated carefully
as to what is fact and what could be the failing but fantastic memory of
an old man, with perhaps a slender thread of truth with which he embroidered
it, unconsciously, as the years passed. No reflection upon him - just one
of the vagaries of old age. There is no doubt that he knew who his parents
and grandparents were; however, his supposition that Daniel DuPre,Cashier of
the State Bank, Raleigh, N. C., for 40 years, and his own grandfather who
died in Lexington, Ga., were cousins is certainly open to question. He
stated that his great grandfather owned the site of the present town of
Manchester, suburb of Richmond, Va. This is in error according to facts,
as his great grandfather was Lewis Deupree, son of Thomas Deupree of Lunen-
burg Co., Va. These relationships are proven conclusively elsewhere herein.
Thomas Deupree's father also was Thomas who married Margaret Easley. The
latter Thomas did die in Henrico Co., Va., ca. 1725, but there is great
doubt that he ever owned more than a small grant (Patent) of land. His wife
inherited 150 acres in Henrico Co. from her father, Robert Easley. It's
possible that some of the acreage owned by either could have come down to
their son, Thomas of Lunenburg Co; however, there are no Henrico records to
support this. Lewis, the father of Daniel, sold his holdings in Lunenburg

and Mecklenburg Counties in the early 1790s and removed to Laurens Co., S. C.,
where he died ca. 1799. This was Louis J. DuPre's greatgrandfather. He
must have disposed of most of his property before death, as the inventory of
his estate, filed by his son, Drury the administrator, showed a modest
amount of property. - Some interested descendant might learn much about the
early ancestry of this family by delving into the Court records of Henrico
Co. I suggest that sane information might be found under "Land Causes".

Old letters can be a treasury of information; however, take the "leads"
they give and prove them.

OGLETHORPE CO. Wills, Bk. D, p. 231 (Ga. Archives M/f Rleel 46-11):
Will of Daniel Deupree, Lexington, Georgia, 23 Feb. 1848.
....etc.... I would remark that in distribution of my property heretofore
made among my children, my object has been equality. If I have not suc-
ceeded the failure has been unintentional. I have not now, nor have had
heretofore, any partialities to gratify or Prejudices to overcame. I love
all my children and my constant aim has been to give each one an equal share
of my estate. I have previous to the year 1846, given to each of my children,
property & money to the amount of three thousand dollars. During the year
1846, I gave property to the children of my deceased son, Joseph to the value
of $1600.00. To my daughter, Lucy Lumpkin, property to the value of $1700.00.
To each of my sons, Daniel & Elijah, property to the value of $1600.50. I was
willing to give at the same time to my son in law John Starnes property to
the value of $1600.00 provided he would obligate himself to hand it over &
convey it at the death of his wife, Elizabeth Starnes, to the Children of my
said daughter, Elizabeth, by her previous husband, Josiah Rainey- John Starnes
was unwilling to receive said property upon this condition, and the final ar-
rangement was for Starnes to take property to the value of $1000.00 for which
he gave nis note payable to myself or my legal representative, twelve months
after the death of my said daughter, Elizabeth, and I gave to four of the
children of my said daughter Elizabeth, by her first husband Rainey, each in

cash, the sum of $100.32 and hold now in my hands for the other child of my
said daughter, Elizabeth Decatur Rainey, the sum of $139.00. ..... hereby
give to the children of my said daughter, Elizabeth by her first husband,
Josiah Rainey, the aforesaid note of $1000.00 or the proceeds of the same
....etc. .......the widow of my son, William E. Deupree, is now and has been
in possession of a tract in Noxibee County, Mississippi, containing 440 acres,
which tract of land I purchased from my two sons, Elijah & Daniel,
I will and devise said tract of land to Elizabeth Deupree, widow of my
dead son, William E. during her life or widowhood and at her death or mar-
riage, said land to be sold and the money equally divided among the children
and representatives of children of my said son, William This land is
to be valued at the final distribution of my estate at $3520.00. ..... my
daughter Lucy Lumpkin's gift of land valued at $1700.00....no tan absolute
gift, but given during the life of my said daughter, Lucy, and at her death
to be equally divided among her children and the representives of children,
.....at the same time....daughter, Lucy, received this property, I took lands
from Samuel Lumpkin to amount to...value of said property, at death of his
wife.... etc.
I give to my beloved wife, Sarah, absolutely & forever one negro girl
by the name of Fannie about 12 years old. I lend to my said wife during her
life time, all the rest and residue of my estate not mentioned in this will,
both real and personal.
..... the residue of the money disposed of in the following manner:
One sixth to my son, Daniel...one sixth...son, Elijah. One sixth...the
children of son, Joseph, dec'd. One sixth to children of son, William E. &
repre. of them. One sixth to dau./children of Elizabeth by first husband Rainey.
One sixth to dau. Lucy Lumpkin….
I have excluded from a participation of my property, the child of My
daughter Elizabeth by her husband John Starnes, not because I love him less
than the others, but because he is well provided for, letter than his Rainey
brothers and sisters.

The two letters below were copied from a manuscript file at the Virginia
Historical Society Library, 428 N. Boulevard, Richmond, Va., File Classifi-
cation: Mss 1 B 1463b 5514-5765. Box 23 of 197, THE BAGBY FAMILY PAPERS,
Section 46 (DU-GIB). The letters were written by LOUIS J. DUPRE' Clinton,
Miss., to the wife of GEORGE W. BAGBY and to the Virginia State Library,
respectively, both of Richmond, Va. (Letters inadvertently reversed below).

Note: George William Bagby (1828-1883) was Publisher of the Lynchburg
Express; wrote for Harper's New Monthly Magazine; was Editor of the Southern
Literary Messenger; and was an author and a lecturer, generally in the light
vein.

Each of the letters referred to bore a l x 1 picture of their author
pasted on the upper left corner of the first page, under which he had signed
his name as shown above, but omitting the "J". Only the signature to the
second letter shows the "J".

The first letter was written on letter-head stationery captioned,
"EDITORIAL ROOMS DAILY NEWS, Birmingham, Ala." Birmingham, Ala., had been
struck through, and the letter was headed Clinton, Mississippi",

To the Librarian

When I was last in Richmond Mrs D'r Geo. W. Bagby
filled the office to which you have been assigned. I had met her at her
house in Richmond. Her husband & I were associated for a time as Journalists
in the "Old Whig" office, "bello flagrantion" in Richmond. I hope she still
serves the State & will be kind enough to answer the questions I propound.

With great respect I am
yrs very truly
Louis DuPre'

(Note: The questions he referred to were not with this letter, nor were
they located).

The second letter was typewritten, double spaced, on legal size paper.

(2) Clinton, Mississippi April 6th 1891

Dear Mrs Bagby;

My acquaintance and friendly relations with Dr. Bagby began even
in my boyhood. He and I and the late Sunset Cox of glorious memory
"et in Washington at Buchanan's inauguration. I remained some weeks in the
Fed. capital while whe (sie) Dr. was there only a day or two. But we
never forgot the accident and good fortune involved in this day spent so
joyously with the most brilliant youth, as Mr. Cox was then esteemed, of his
time. But he and Tom Corwin were inveterate jesters as matchless orators
and I had the good fortune to hear Corwin tell my late father-in-law,
James C. Jones that if he had never "cracked a jode he would have been
President."

Then again, in 1863 when for a time I was Clerk of a Com. on Military
affairs of the Confed. Congress, I made Dr. Bagby's my office which was that
of Mr, Moseley Ed, of the Old Richmond Whig. Do you remember Mr. Moseley?
What a frank, confiding, generous old gentleman he was! I was introduced to
him by Dr. B. as a "newspaper man". An hour later Mr. Moseley was summoned to
the country. I was still in in Dr. B 's "telegraph" apartment. He approached
me saying, "you have been reading the Whig and know what it advocates and
opposes". " want you to run it for me till I return',. Do you know that I
will be more boastful of this trust reposed and of the fidlity (sie) and skill.
With which I executed it than of laudation conceded by the Dep't of State when
I served it in an international embroglio By the way, Mr. Moseley --and. Gov.
Jones were singularly alike in person, stature - singularly tall and slendor --
and their photographs were fac similes. Jones was born at the Hermitage in
Tenn. but his father and mother were Virginians as are these all of people that
get to heaven I humbly imagine - when writing to a loyal Virginenne And this
leads me to inquire whether, in delveng (sie) amon:g old books or pamphlets
which I exploited somewhat when I was Committee clerk, as aforesaid
State Library, you ever encountered any allusion to persons of:--- name
grandfather, Dan'l DuPre was, in his youth, a soldier under LaFayette
to be 90 years old dying, in 1848, in Lexington Va. I used to hear and see the
the old gentleman when he was "fighting all his battles o'er again". The old
man never loved Gee. Washington, He said that he and and LaFayette starved out
(p. 2) Cornwallis and finally cooped him up in Yorktown. Then came DeGresse
and Hochambeau, and when the French, under LaFayette, an land, and under De-
Grease, at sea, had won the victory, "the good and great G. W. hustled down from
Tappul were (sie) he had been hanging poor Andre far six or 8 months, and nod-
estly received Cornwallis' sword reporting to Congress a greet Victory for she
Country,s paternal ancestor, so-called.

Many thanks, Mrs Bagby, for answers to to those historical and other
questions propounded The others, unanswered are immaterial.

It occurs to me at the moment, that I have a letter from Hon. Henry L.
Bentley of Abeline Texas - the matchless orator of those parts - inquiring
about the history and deeds of my grandfather. Bentley's grandfather was also
named Dan'l DuPre. He was forty years Pres't and Cashier of the state Bank Of
N. C. at Raleigh. He and my grandfather (sie), I opine, were first cousins.
Their father or grandfather came, with senator Bayard's people, to Phil'a about
1670. That's all I know about them. My great grandfather owned thie site of
the present town of Manchester your Richmond suburb. He sold 99 year leases,
These expired about thirty years ago. Christian and Carrington were employed
by the heirs of this old Dan'l DuPre, my grandfather, to sue for the property.
All records had been burned twice or thrice. We could prove nothing, and the
legislature of Va properly legislatd to quiet titles and very properly I was
suppressed. However I am pleased to tell you that I am the hereditary owner
of much realty about Richmond. The additional fact remains to be stated that
my mother's name was Francine Bolling Cox and this fact induced me to seek the
acquaintance of Sunset Cox, as heretofore stated. Two of my' mother's uncles
were in the battle at Monmouth Court House, N. J. One was wounded and remained
in tht (sie) State and was married there. I fancied that Sunset Cox (barn in
N.J.) might be my cousin. I mentioned the matter once. He only laughed at the
odd conceit saying "I always knew that I was of royal blood." My mother's
mother eras named Cabinesse.; her grandfather was John Cox to whom the Crown
issued a grant on parchment from King Charles, I think it was, conveying
to "John Cox Gent". the County of Dinwiddie. My father's home was
destroyed bello flagrante with every old book and heirloom of the house. I
wish to answer Mr. Bentley's letter. Before doing so I would gladly hear
from you. There is something in that old Library about every old family of
the old Dominion. I am, with sincere regard,
Yrs sincerely
Louis J. DuPre'
On the reverse of the last page of the above letter was the following in
long-hand:

You had an admirable portrait of Henry Clay & I have his watch. Don't
you remember the conversation evoked by these facts at your home?

(Also) Gov. 6( U. S. Senator James C. Jones was named James "Chamberlayne"
Jones. See what is said of him within.

The picture of Louis J. DuPre referred to earlier is of a fine looking,
bearded man, somewhat past middle-age It is regretted that it cannot be
reproduced herein.

Letter No. 2 is valuable for the family information it gives, most of
which can be taken as fact. However, it should be evaluated carefully
as to what is fact and what could be the failing but fantastic memory of
an old man, with perhaps a slender thread of truth with which he embroidered
it, unconsciously, as the years passed. No reflection upon him - just one
of the vagaries of old age. There is no doubt that he knew who his parents
and grandparents were; however, his supposition that Daniel DuPre,Cashier of
the State Bank, Raleigh, N. C., for 40 years, and his own grandfather who
died in Lexington, Ga., were cousins is certainly open to question. He
stated that his great grandfather owned the site of the present town of
Manchester, suburb of Richmond, Va. This is in error according to facts,
as his great grandfather was Lewis Deupree, son of Thomas Deupree of Lunen-
burg Co., Va. These relationships are proven conclusively elsewhere herein.
Thomas Deupree's father also was Thomas who married Margaret Easley. The
latter Thomas did die in Henrico Co., Va., ca. 1725, but there is great
doubt that he ever owned more than a small grant (Patent) of land. His wife
inherited 150 acres in Henrico Co. from her father, Robert Easley. It's
possible that some of the acreage owned by either could have come down to
their son, Thomas of Lunenburg Co; however, there are no Henrico records to
support this. Lewis, the father of Daniel, sold his holdings in Lunenburg

and Mecklenburg Counties in the early 1790s and removed to Laurens Co., S. C.,
where he died ca. 1799. This was Louis J. DuPre's greatgrandfather. He
must have disposed of most of his property before death, as the inventory of
his estate, filed by his son, Drury the administrator, showed a modest
amount of property. - Some interested descendant might learn much about the
early ancestry of this family by delving into the Court records of Henrico
Co. I suggest that sane information might be found under "Land Causes".

Old letters can be a treasury of information; however, take the "leads"
they give and prove them.

Will of Priscilla R. Mathis, of Stewart Co., State of Georgia, dated
13th September 1861:
..... I desire and direct that all my estate both real and personal, in-
cluding Mary and her increase, be equally divided into eight shares,
which shares I give and bequeath in manner following, to wit, to my
son William R. Mathis one share, absolutely, and without reserve forever;
to my daughter Mary R. Tucker, wife of John R. Tucker; Eliza A. Robinson,
wife of Neil Robinson; Elizabeth H. Gilmore, wife of James H. Gilmore;
Sarah C. Burkes, wife of William Burkes; Caroline Scott a widow; and
Clarissa B. Dunnaway, wife of John B. Dunnaway, each one share; to have,
use and enjoy, for and during her natural life, free from the debts and
liabilities of her present or any future husband, and at her decease to
remain to her children forever, and also one share to the children of my
deceased daughter Rebecca T. Dunnaway, to wit, Sarah P. James L. and
John Dunnaway, to be equally divided among them; the portion going to

Sarah P. to be a separate life estate free from the marital rights, and
remainder to her children.
I hereby appoint for each of my daughters that are now married her
husband as trustee of the property going to her, and in the event that
the husband of either of my daughters should die, she shall have the right
to select her trustee. And should either of my daughters die before me,
the right to the share going to her shall rest in her children forever. I
also appoint my son William R. Mathis, trustee of the property going to
Caroline Scott, and John B. Dunnaway, trustee of the property going to
Sarah P. Dunnaway. Fourthly-
Whereas my brother Jesse Dupree, did in his life time, to wit: on
the twenty fifth day of February, in the year eighteen hundred and forty
two, by his deed of gift and act, deliver to me a certain negro girl named
Mary, and whereas in an instrument purporting to be his last will and testa-
meet, the names of my son William R. Mathis and my daughter Clarissa B.
Dunnaway, are stricken from any interest in remainder, after my life inter-
est shall be over, to the said negro woman Mary and her increase.
Now to prevent legal strife and litigation I desire and direct that the
said Divisors of my estate, shall make out of my other property, two shares,
each being equal to one eighth part of my estate, including Mary and her
increase, and allot them, one to my son William R. and the other to my
daughter Clarissa B. Dunnaway, in line of such share as might fall to them
by a generall and indiscriminate allotment or distribution, so as to equal-
ize the shares of all my children. The right to rest as herein before directed
in the third article. Provided, however that if my other children shall relin-
quish any right or claim under the will of Jesse Dupree, touching Mary and
children, then the division of my estate shall be indiscriminate.
Fifthly- The husband of my daughters, living, and of the county of

Stewart, may as trustees herein before appointed sell any negro or other
property falling to their wives, provided they shall deem it to be for the
advantage of the ( ) or to avoid parting families.
Sixthly- I hereby nominate and appoint my son William R. Mathis
executor of this my last will and testament, this 13th day of September 1861.

Note: It was customary to charge a fee when registering for a drawing
in the Georgia Lotteries. A lucky drawer would then have to pay a Grant fee
if he took up the land he drew. Many did not take up their Lottery land,
although many did. The State Department of Archives and History, located
at 330 Capital Avenue, S. W., Atlanta, Ga. 30334, can furnish information
as to whether or not certain Lottery Grants were taken up.

The following item was contributed by Mr. and Mrs. Charles Lamar DeuPree,
of Dallas, Texas. The article was contained in a small pamphlet which was
forwarded to Mr. DeuPree. On the face of the pamphlet was:

Following the above was the picture of an old church, under which was
this description:
MOSTLY A MEMORY - The only remains of the historic and once
influential Sharon Baptist Church in Noxubee County are a few
graying tcmbstones and timbers used to build the Pilgrim's
Rest Baptist Church in the background. The Sharon Church
existed from 1846 to 1915. Photo by Broox Sledge.
Inside the pamphlet is the following article about the old church,
written by Broox Sledge, Macon, Miss:

A faded minute book, a few timbers forming part of another structure,
and some graying tombstones are all that remain of the simple grandeur of
one of the most historic and influential churches ever to exist in Noxubee
county.
The Sharon Baptist Church was a vital part of the Deerbrook area east
of Brooksville from its organization in 1846 until its dissolution in 1915.
The old minute book is the property of Mrs, William Deupree of Memphis.
The remaining timbers form the foundation and support structure for
the present-day Pilgrim's Rest Colored Baptist Church in approximately the
same location as the one-time site of the Sharon church.
The graying tombstones remain in the old Sharon cemetery which holds
not only the remains of some of the county's finest early influential
religious personages but also the bones of four victims of a murder orgy
unequalled in Noxubee county's lore of the past.

FIRST MEMBERS
The Sharon Baptist Church was organized Oct. 31, 1846. The church
named as its first deacons Daniel and Elijah Deupree, with William Cun-
ningham named church clerk, and William Manning the first pastor.
It is not (c)lear why the names of Daniel and Elijah Deupree were
not on the list of founding members. (The names of their slaves were.)
They were listed in the minutes as being present at the meeting to con-
sider the organization of the church. Possibly they were already mem-
bers of another church and did not leave to join Sharon until all
details were complete and the church actually an organized body.
This mystery is also true and Jared D. Brooks, who became one of
the church's outstanding members and the man for whom the town of
Brooksville was named.

GROWTHS AND PROBLEMS
Successive entries in the old minute book reveal the growth - and
the problems - of the newly-formed church.
Jared D. Brooks had his troubles from time to time with the church.
In July 1850 an entry stated: "J. D. Brooks wrote the church a letter
telling of trespassing on rules in a fight with Mr. Winkfield Said
he would apologize but already had done it so many times, the church
probably wouldn't let him do it." The church took no action against
him in this instance.
An entry in January 1854r read: "J. D. Brooks excluded from the
church for acting as a second in a duel between Dr. Irby and Dr. Fant,
a duel in which Dr. Kirby was killed. " The church then went on to
condemn duelling in no uncertain terms.
There are varying estimates as to just when the first Sunday
School was organized. Certainly the Sunday School organized at the
Sharon Church in January 1847 was the first in Noxubee County, quite
possibly the first in the state. Another Sunday School was organized
by the church in 1866 for freed-men, but soon the freedmen began
requestina and receiving transfers to their own African Church.
The last entry in the old minute book was dated June 1873 and
concerned Bro. A. Blewitt and J. W. Deupree being appointed to look
into the possibility of having Bro. George Wharton to preach for the
church.
A special tribute was paid Jared D. Brooks in the minutes after
his death on april 2, 1863. He was serving as Noxubee county state
representative at his death.
The tribute in the minute book said he was "honest and honorable..
....had integrity of character ...and was independent in opinion and
fearless in the expounding of same." His tomb has never been found.
Surmise is that his remains are resting either in the Sharon, Deerbrook,
or Brooksville burial grounds, but no stone with his inscription on
it has ever been brought to light.
Shortly before 1900 the church was moved about three miles east
to Deerbrook and built upon ground donated by Latt Deupree. Some of
the church leaders of that time and shortly thereafter were Wayne
Deupree, Capt Snowden, the Robertsons, the Clays, Harrisons, Cavetts,
Bells, and other members of the Deupree family.
Shortly after 1920 the building was sold and torn down with the money
going to the Brooksville Baptist Church. Some of the timbers were used
in the building of the Pilgrim's Rest Colored Baptist Church on the old
site next to the cemetery.
Thus an era passes.

There is an unpublished manuscript in the records of the Noxubee County
Historical Society concerning the Deupree family entitled "Historical Notes
of Noxubee County, Mississippi" collected and written by John Anderson Tyson
in 19 26-19 27 . Chapter XII, ''Some Distinguished Citizens of Noxubee County",
contains some genealogy of the Deupree family, a copy of which was graciously
sent to this researcher by Dr. Allen Dupree King, Wilmington, Delaware. The
following information was obtained from this genealogy. Although no refer-
ences were given for the data and therefore is unproven by this researcher,
it will prove of value in further research on this family:

Daniel Deupree settled first east of the Tombigbee River in Pickens Co.
(Miss.). He purchased a large tract of land and built a handsome residence
now known as the "Tucker Madison Place", although the original house was burned.
Daniel moved to Macon after his home burned, and built the house now owned by
A. T. Dent;.
Drewy Deupree, cousin of Daniel and Elijah Deupree, came from Georgia and
managed the farms.
Daniel and Elijah Deupree's widowed sister, Mrs. William Deupree, lived
first in Pickens Co. and later moved near Daniel.
Daniel Deupree had six sons and four daughters.
Elijah Deupree had five sons.
Their cousin, Drewy Deupree had five sons.
The widow Deupree had four sons and one daughter, & one grand-daughter.
Later, Drewy Deupree and all his sons returned to Georgia to live.
The widow Deupree died, and her descendants removed to Texas.
Two of Daniel Deupree's sons died before 1861. One of his sons, Col.
Louis Deupree, was a voluntary aide to Gen. B. Bate. After the War Between
the States, Louis was engaged in journalistic work in Memphis, Tenn. He
also was a U. S. Consul to Honduras. (Note: See two of Louis's letters
herein under Oglethorpe Co., Ga.).
Daniel Deupree's other three sons, Dr. Thomas Deupree, Doe Deupree, and
John Greer Deupree were Confederate soldiers. John Greer Deupree was a
professor at Mississippi University taught consecutively for 25 years, and
retired under the Carnegie Fund. He died at his home in Jackson, Miss.,
"a few years ago".
Elijah Deupree was a large land owner. He built a colonial residence
about one mile south of Daniel's home (his brother's). Elijah's youngest
