Daniel Timeline 4-2-2011

This Timeline is an on-going work of, Duane D. (Rusty) Givens son of Donald Kenneth Givens, grandson of Hail C. Givens, ggrandson of James Harvison Givens, gggrandson of Joseph Givens, and ggggrandson of Daniel Givens [see A Givens-Hall Family History from Pre-Revolutionary Times to 1970 p-11, #6 in The Givens Tree Spreads, Chap. 6B, p140] With review and contributions by Nathaline & Clyde Givens my cousins who live in Ohio. Until I tire of doing my family research; this will be an on-going, updates, corrections, and questions to be resolved.

When one reads, in this timeline, the words, “we think”, that are in these brackets [ ] a denote observations. All folks that contribute input will be recognized as being the source. When there are differing opinions on any subject, it will be so noted as to who thinks what we do not try to force concurrance with each other. Information that came from Dorothy Hall Givens’s research will be footnoted as follows:

Enter in the very beginning the ref’s about our family’s beginnings in Ireland and the family spelled their name Gavine, and settled in the 1630’s

Insert the PRONI ref # here of Samual Maxwell Alexander Given’s research

All reference resource documents for this timeline are in separate 3 ring binders, entitled, Source Documents for Daniel’s Timeline.

Yes, I want other folks additional input into this document. I know that there are some errors in this document but just don’t know where they are, so I need others to read this Timeline to help me find my errors and provide me with more accurate information. If you have hard copy documents that you would like to share, you may mail a copy of them to Rusty Givens 746 Club Cr, Louisville, CO 80027. PLEASE provide your source of the information that you are providing. We are trying to do the best research possible and noting where we find our information so others will know where this information came from will be appreciated.

o Be Done (TBD) Enter ref to both (1 is the original and the 2nd is a copy) of Daniel’s will’s and put them into the source binder 3 ring binder and letter noting the original vs the Clerks copy.

Insert Nat’s (a gentlemen’s) letter to Dorothy regarding Daniel original will.

Rusty’s assumptions below:

Daniel Givens’s mother & father would have been born @ 1695 to 1720’s –

If Daniel was b@ 1739* or 1745*

- 20 - 20 Daniel’s parents most likely would been

1719 1725 @ 20 yr’s of age, if Daniel was one of

their first born.

There are two dates that our family members believe, may have been Daniel’s birth year, 1739 to 1745. Dorothy Hall Givens concurred. RG & C&NG concur.

We think that Daniel was most likely born in the Colonies (most likely Pennsylvania). The family migrated down the Pennsylvania Turnpike into Southern Virginia maybe around the mid to late 1750’s. It is noted in history books that the Irish did not get along with the Germans or Quakers, so migrated South. This was Indian Territory and no one cared who ran them or killed them and settled the territory themselves. Augusta County that was formed in 1738 and started operations @1745­ and ­County in 1769-70, later where Daniel Givens lived, became Craig County, Virginia. One needs to look at maps to see how the size and configuration of these counties changed over the years Sinking Creek is in Craig County, Virginia as of 1851, which is West of New Castle, (Newcastle), Virginia.

Insert map here

Orange County

In 1734, the General Assembly looked to the past when naming Orange County after William of Orange, who ruled initially with Queen Mary and then solo as King William III.

Put Daniel’s children’s names here:

It is highly probable, that Daniel named some of his children, after his father, mother, aunts and uncles, which was and continues to be a common practice.

Martha Camden’s Mother’s name might have been Anna or Annie or Sarah or Susannah, as families sometimes named their first born daughter and son after their Mother and

Daniel’s first born son might have been William or Isaiah.

Check the Marriage bonds and see if it notes the age of who is getting married which I could then back into their birth year.

Look back in O’Hart’s to see what there is in the area below about “the above – mentioned Gilbert Christian – more info? (work on this grammer – here) Insert an optical scan of the doc that I took a digital photo of at the Isle of Man, Manx facility and note the slight date differences.

An important note here:

From O’Hart’s Irish Pedigrees, Vol I, 5th Edition p-601 [year written ? ] the following information was found by Rusty Givens:

“In 1722, the above –mentioned Gilbert Christian, accompanied by a large number

of his countrymen, migrated to America [from Northern Ireland, CO Londonderry]; and , having some time remained in Pennsylvania, he ultimately settled in Virginia, whither many of his name and family had preceded him from Ireland. Israel Christian, a Scot, once a merchant in Dublin, followed him; and among those who then also went to America from various counties in Ulster were members of the following families: Allen, Brakenridge, Campbell, Christian, Cunningham, Given, Henry, Lewis, Lockhart, McClanahan, McCue, [Mac-Hugh], McDonald, McDowell, McGavock, Montgomery, Rerton spl? (or Tereton), Russell, Trimble, Wilson, etc.” In this same paragraph O’Hart references that most of these families settled in the Southern United States.

When searching in the Eagle Rock area of Virginia which is due North of the current Craig county, [junction of Craig’s Creek and James River] most of the above mentioned families that came over with Gilbert & Israel Christian can be found in that area. [Insert optical scan of the Borden and Beverly Tract after this boxed section.] Keeping in mind that this researcher believes that this is the same Israel Christian [p543] as mentioned above. R.G. [Israel Christian is a very unusual name, and easy to search on.]

Christiansburg, Virginia was named after William Christian. (what date?) Dtr# 1722 what does this Dtr# mean ?

See if I can find this document over in Trinity College.

The comments, additions, corrections or other remarks inserted in brackets like this “ [ ]” are by Rusty Givens. The underlining has also been added by Rusty Givens just for the sake of noting important details that he has observed.

1720’s Israel Christian, a Scot, once a merchant in Dublin, followed him; and among those who then also went to America from various counties in Ulster were members of the following families: Allen, Brakenridge, Campbell, Christian, Cunningham, Given, Henry, Lewis, Lockhart, McClanahan, McCue, [Mac-Hugh], McDonald, McDowell, McGavock, Montgomery, Rerton spl?

From the Annals Of Augusta County Virginia 1726-1871 by Waddell, p 124-125:

GILBERT CHRISTIAN with his wife, three sonsJohn, Robert and

William—and a daughter, Mary, landed at Newcastle, Pennsylvania,

in 1726, and in 1732 removed to a spot near the site of Staunton, [ Virginia ? Yes] on

Christian’s Creek, giving his name to that stream. John Christian was a prominent citizen, and is repeatedly mentioned in the earlier pages of these Annals. He was on of the first Justices of the Peace, etc. etc, Robert married Isabella Tiffins, of the lower Valley [Virginia ?], and is the ancestor of the Christians now living in the county, William is presumed to be the Capt. William Christian mentioned elsewhere as member of a “Council of War,” in 1756. His wife was Mary Campbell, probably a sister of Arthur Campbell. Mary Christian married, first, John Moffett and became the mother of Col. George Moffett and others. She married, secondly, John Trimble [I believe this is the Trimble that came over to the Colonies with Israel Christian, @ the 1720’s], and became the mother of Capt. James Trimble, of whom much remains to be said.

[ It appears that it was Gilbert Christian that first settled in Beverly Manor in 1736. Below it is noted that Israel Christian did not move to Augusta County, Virginia until 1740. On the Beverly Manor Land Grant map that I have from recorded Land Grants in 1736, I do not see Given(s) on this map. Maybe they are still in Pennsylvania where they first immigrated to along with Israel Christian. And remember that Samuel Givens who m Sarah Cathey, immigrated to the Colonies in 1738 per Immigration Records.]

Find source of this and enter here & add what I found on the Isle of Man

ISRAEL CHRISTIAN, a very prominent citizen of Augusta, is be-

lieved to have been a nephew of Gilbert. He is said to have had some

training in the mercantile business before he left Ireland. [O’Hart notes that Israel, (a Scot) was a merchant in Dubin prior to immigrating to the Colonies] He came to

Augusta in 1740, and was a prosperous merchant at Staunton for some

years. [Israel must have lived in Pennsylvannia from the 1720’s until moving South into Virginia in 1740.] He was a representative of Augusta in the House of Burgesses

in 1759-’61. His wife was Elizabeth Stark. One of his daughters

married Col. William Fleming; one was the second wife of Caleb

Wallace; another married William Bower, of Botetourt; and a fourth

Colonel Stephen Trigg, of Kentucky. A county in Kentucky was

named in honor of his son, William, and another for his son-in-law

Trigg. He was the founder of the towns of Fincastle and Christians-

burg. [include these names in the index when I put it together]

WILLIAM CHRISTIAN, son of Israel, was born in Augusta [ County Virginia] in

1743. He was a member of the House of Burgesses in 1744 (from

Botetourt [Botetourt County was not formed until 1769-1770 ?], and leaving Williamsburg he raised a company and has-

tened to join General Andrew Lewis, but failed to overtake him till

the night after the battle of Point Pleasant. In 1775 he was chosen

Lieutenant-Colonel of the first Virginia regiment of which Patrick

Henry was colonel. In 1776, however, he became colonel of the first

battalion of Virginia militia, and commander of an expedition against

the Cherokee Indians. The troops under his command consisted of

two battalions from Virginia and one from North Carolina, which,

with other men employed, composed an army of one thousand six

hundred to one thousand eight hundred men. The campaign lasted

about three months. Not one man was killed, and no one died. The

Indians fled at the approach of the army, but many of their towns

were destroyed and their fields wasted. On the return of the army to

the settlements, Fort Henry was built at Long Island, in the Holston,

near the present Virginia State line, and supplies were taken to it from

Rockbridge and Augusta counties. The fort was then supposed to be

in Virginia.

In 1780 William Christian commanded another expedition against the Cherokees.

In 1781 he was appointed by General Green at the head of a commis-

sion to conclude a treaty with the Indians, his Virginia associates be-

ing Arthur Campbell, William Preston and Joseph Martin. In 1785

William removed to Kentucky, and settled near Louisville. The year fol-

lowing he and other pursed a party of marauding Indians across the

Ohio river, and overtook two of them near the spot where Jefferson-

ville, Indiana, now is. There he was shot and killed by one of the

Indians, both of whom were instantly killed by Christian’s compan-

ions. His body was carried home, and the inscription on his tomb-

stone states that he was killed April 9, 1786, aged 43. His wife was a

sister of Patrick Henry. Colonel Bullitt, of Kentucky, was his son-

in-law. His only son died while a youth. [I think I have books about a Green family, see if it’s this family.]

"John Henderson of Fifeshire, Scotland had a son William who married in Scotland, Margaret Bruce, Their son Samuel born 1713 died 1783 married Jean Craig. Samuel and Jean (Craig) Henderson had a son John Andrew Henderson he married in Augusta County VA in 1756 to Mary Russell, their children were(1) Andrew Henderson married Agnes Nancy Keys;(2) John Henderson married in Washington County VA Margaret Hammond;(3) Samuel Henderson married Amanda Fraim;(4) Robert Henderson married Miss Balch, later Elizabeth Hackett;(5) Joseph Henderson died unmarried;(6) Thomas Henderson married Elizabeth McGhee;(7) Florence Henderson married Alexander Shadden;(8) Jean Henderson married Andrew Edgar".

Another son of John and Dorcas Henderson was Thomas Alexander Henderson born 27 Oct 1826. (Tennessee, The Volunteer State pp. 535 and 536). Other children of John Henderson Jr. and Dorcas (McSpadden) were: Samuel, Eliza, Mary, Jane, Nancy, Robert and Dorcas (Bradford data, Chattanooga, TN).

Thomas Alexander Henderson (1826-1911) married Martha Caldwell (1828-1918) and they had five children: William Bryant, James Harvey, Mary Ellen, Oliver Benjamin, and Martha Caldwell.

There are different conflicts in data, typically of Henderson family study. In a reference: Dictionary of Scottish Emigrants to the USA, by Donald Whyte, Magna Carta Book Company, Baltimore MD, gives the genealogy of a John Henderson (1720- 24 Mar 1787). According to this, he was the son of Alexander Henderson of Augusta County, VA and before 1760 he married Anne Givens daughter of John Givens and Mary Sitlington. (Is this Samuel’s and Sarah Cathey’s Givens’s son? )They were the parents of five sons: William born ca 1766, John born ca. 1760, James, Samuel, and George born ca 1759.

1763, Feb. 27th Marriage Bonds - Daniel Givins and Mary James, widow

William & Mary Quarterly, Series 2, Vol.8 1928



Contributed by Mrs. Russell S. Barrett

The following is a complete list of all the early marriage bonds

that are still in the Norfolk County Court House. In many cases

the ink is so pale it is almost illegible, the paper is some is so

worn and tender it droops to pieces with the most careful handling;

many parts are missing. The greater number, however are in very

good condition. A great many are missing, not _ _ _ remains for

the years of 1775, 1776, 1777, 1778, 1780, 1794. The records

disclose on one marriage bond for each of the following years:

1771, 1774, 1781, 17_ _. We have included lists turned into the

clerk’s office by ministers of the gospel. All names on these lists

are not represented by bonds, however, but such marriages were

solemnized by the said ministers, and so we have included them,

as it is the only record of these marriages remaining.

1764 Daniel Givens married Martha Camden @1764 (if not married in Episcopal Church, records probably did not exist for their marriage.) [ I think this marriage date was an estimated by Dorothy Hall Givens] [ If Daniel was b.1739 he would have been 25 years when married and 83 when he died in 1823 OR if he was b.1745 [Dorothy’s observation – I think that Dorothy backed into Daniel’s date of birth and marriage date?][I think their marriage date was backed into by Dorothy Givens as there were no official records found, i.e., Anne was b 1766, so maybe they were married a year or two later.], and married at 19 years of age, he would have been 77 at his death., r.g.] Daniel was born around 1745, [estimated by Dorothy] this birth year came from Dorothy Hall Givens’s book, A Givens – Hall Family History from Pre-Revolutionary Times to 1970 (G-HFH), p-9. [ I discussed with Dorothy that Daniel might have been born earlier maybe @ 1739 which Dorothy thought was possible.]

Dorothy Hall Givens who was the compiler of the book G-HFH, notes that there were Camdens in Augusta County & Amherst County. Camden is most likely an English name indicating that Daniel probably met Martha Camden somewhere in the Colonies; it is a common name in NE, i.e. MD, NJ.

[Samuel Givens (who m Sarah Cathey, did not bring our Daniel to the Colonies – as Samuel died 1740 – our Daniel was b 1739 – 1745, we think in the Colonies, maybe PA.

[We think that a person who would have attained the position of a Constable, probably lived in the area for at least a couple of years prior to 1773 as this position would not have been handed over the year that he arrived - and was well known to the community and have a reasonable education, such as being capable of reading. The possible late date for Daniel arriving in the area is 1771 and maybe sooner. c&n, r.g.]
