  GENERATION Two


   NEHEMIAH COVINGTON. Ref: 5675. Born: around 1628 at Huntingdonshire. Father: Thomas, Father Ref: 6477. Mother: Ann, Mother Ref: 6478.  Died: 2 May

    1681 at Somerset Co. MD aged 53.  Mar: around 1648 at Northampton MD to Vaughns, Mary 4030. 2nd Mar: July 1667 at Somerset Co. MD to Ingram, Anne

    4936. Supposedly the first Covington to reach America. Various sources suggest he first arrived in U.S. in 1652 before returning to England shortly after

   having had a brush with the U.S. law for being a "single man" and was fined a quantity of tobacco (??). He then returned 10 years later with his pregnant wife

   and 6 children in 1662. However many of these sources are contradictory with regards to dates. Certainly the biggest myth expressed by researchers into

   Nehemiah is that he came from Coventry, Huntingdonshire, England. This is untrue as the only Coventry in England is in Warwickshire. However the village of

   Covington can be found in Huntingdonshire so this may be the cause of the confusion.

  

   Another source suggests the following: "Immigrated into Virginia in 1647, a colorful individual whose life has been well documented in many Delmarva (

   Delaware) genealogies. From being accused of 'thieving cheese' and 'defaming a woman' on the eastern shore of Virginia, as an indentured servant to High

   Sherriff in the new county of Somerset, in ye new province of Maryland."

  

   Listed under patent of Nicholas Waddilow and Stephen Harsey in 1647, and under patent of Nicholas Waddilow in 1649. Signed the Oath to the

   Commonwealth Mar, 25, 1651 at Northhampton Co. Va.  In 1666 and 1674 was sworn in as Constable in Somerset Co.

  

   1st wife born c.1626, died Apr 1667 at Great Monie. 2nd wife was a widow, she died 1678 in Maryland. He was a Stone Mason, Grist Mill Builder & Tobacco

   Planter. First report of his name appears in Cavaliers & Pioneers: Abstracts of Virginia Land Patents & Grants, 1623-1666 by Nell Marion. Said to have been

   transported to Northampton County by Stephen Horsey and Nicholas Waddelow 13 July 1647. He signed engagement of loyalty to Commonwealth of England,

    March 1651/2. Was before court and fined, March 1652/3 for "incontinency before marriage" and in April 1653, appeared before court on account of trouble

   he was having with a person to whom he was evidently an indentured servant. Nehemiah went to Monie section (later Somerset County, Maryland) in 1662,

   bought cattle from Thomas Leister on 4 June 1666, settled 300 acres called Covington's Vineyard on north side of Great Monie Creek in November 1674,

   stating his age as about 46 years. He married his 2nd wife Anne Ingram July 1667 who was the widow of Robert Ingram, they had been transported together to

    Maryland in 1664. Robert had died before July 1666 and they had had 3 sons, John, James & Robert. Nehemiah and Anne were married by William Thorne

   Justice of the Peace, Somerset County.

   1. Nehemiah Covington b. cir 1628, Covington, Huntingdonshire, England, m. (1) Mary _____, d. cir 1667, buried: Great Monie Hundred, Somerset Co, MD,

   m. (2) ?? Jul 1667, Anne Ingram.  Nehemiah died ?? ___ 1680/1.  He's listed under the patent of Nicholas Waddilow and Stephen Harsey in 1647 and under

   the patent of Nicholas Waddilow in 1649.  Nehemiah signed the Oath to the Commonwealth 25 Mar 1651 in Northampton Co, VA.  In 1662, with his wife and

   children, he immigrated to Somerset Co, MD, where he acquired a patent to 300 acres of land on the north side of Monie Creek in 1663/4.  He called his land

   "Covington's Vinyard."  In 1666 and 1674, he was sworn in as Constable in Somerset Co.  Nehemiah was a prominent Quaker.

  

   According to information provided to me by Martha Beth Wells she has seen a copy of the deposition with his signature, the double owl mark (two big O's with

   a horizontal line above) in the original records of the Northampton County VA Courthouse in Eastville VA

  

   Some further contribution from Jean LaCoss <jclacoss@earthlink.net> in 2006 suggests the following:

  

    "Nehemiah  (b 1628) was a Quaker and refused to contribute to the Church of England.  Therefore, he was brought into court many times and fined, once

   specifically for fornication before marriage, once for stealing for which he was fined and received "12 lashes on his naked shoulder."  He then moved to

   Maryland in 1662.  One report said he married a Quaker and the Church wouldn't recognize his marriage and he was thus lashed for 'fornication'."

   Branch dividing from the land of Capt. Manning and land formerly laid out for Nehemiah Covington (see entry No.5675), 150 acres, 1 March 1680 conveyed by

    Thomas Walker (Som. Deeds 6:41). The land had been deeded to him and his brother, Nehemiah, by their father. At this time John was described as a

   planter.

  

   By his will, signed 17 Oct. 1693, John Coventon of "Great Muney" bequeathed to wife Mary 200 acres, "Second Choice," to pass at her death to son

   Nehemiah, then (if Nehemiah should have no heirs) to son Philip. Son John was to have 150 acres, "Sassafras Neck," which was to pass to son Philip If John

   Nehemiah, b. circa 1676, John M born c.1678, Richard born c. 1680, Jacob born c.1682 and Joshua born c.1684

  

   Husband Julian Mezick, was born about 1645, perhaps as a Huguenot in France. It is not known where Julian came from originally, but it's theorized that he

   was a Huguenot, based on his choice to name his land for the Edict of Nantes (issued in 1598 and reviked in 1685, the Edict granted tolerance to the

   Huguenots in France).About 10 years after being transported in March of 1664/5 to Accomack County, VA by John Tilney,, he proved his right to 50 acres of

   land in Maryland.

   In September 1681, he acquired 100 acres in Nanticoke Hundred. All of this land he called Nantes, perhaps after the Edict of Nantes or after the city by that

   name in western France on the River Loire. In 1710, he deeded 200 acres of land on the south side of the Nanticoke River and on Wetipquin Creek to sons

   John, Jacob and Joshua. Julian's will, probated in June 1718, mentions his wife Priscilla and his children.

  

   Julian died in 1718, and left land on the south side of the Nanticoke River and on Wetipquin Creek.

   The following is an extract of correspondence found on the RootsWeb GenForum:

  

   "I'm reading Charles S. Sydnor, "A Gentleman of the Old Natchez Region: Benjamin L.C. Wailes," Duke University Press, Durham, N.C., 1938. Sydnor says

   that Benjamin L.C.'s father Levin went to sea with Captain James T. Magruder, *a relative,* AND that Benjamin's wife Rebecca Susan Magruder Covington

   was a *distant cousin.*

  

   Levin Wailes' grandfather (Benjamin, Sr.) married Elizabeth Covington, but I've been unable to make a connection with other Covington's who married

   Magruders. In short, where is the link between the Wailes and the Magruders or between Rebecca's father General Leonard Covington and Elizabeth

   Covington who married Levin Wailes' grandfather?

  

   My interest is that I'm descended from Levin Wailes' brother Edward Lloyd Wailes. Thanks."

  

   Reply

  

   "I think I can help you, my great-great grandfather James Ross married Sarah Howard Wailes. She was the daughter of Levin Wailes. Benjamin Wailes Sr.

   born in 1685 married Elizabeth Covington. They had to children: Levin Covington and Benjamin Jr. Benjamin Jr. married Sarah Howard. They had two children:

    Edward Lloyd and Levin. Edward Lloyd named for the Lloyd's of Prince George Co….Lloyd's of London family. Levin's children where Benjamin Lloyd

   Covingtion (BLC), Elizabeth Covingtion, Eliza Biggs, and Sarah Howard. BLC married Rebecca Covingtion, daughter of General Leonard Covingtion,who

   died in the Revolutionary War.

  

   Elizabeth Covington, who married Benjamin Sr. was the daughter of Nehemiah Jr. and Rebecca Denwood.

  

   The Magruder's married into the Covingtion's generations and the Magruder's of Sharon Mississippi married into the Wailes. All of them at some point where

   in Prince George, Co…kissing cousins. Any more info I can help. Some of the information on other website are incorrect. Since you read the book, the forward

    is wrong. It states the BLC is the grandson of Benjamin and Elizabeth Covingtion…that is incorrect. He was the great-grandson."

  

   Response

  

   "Since posting that original message, I have received additional data. The most useful with respect to the Wailes family is: Ernest C. Allnutt, Jr., “The Wailes

   Family of Early Maryland and Some of Their Relatives on the Eastern and Western Shores,” Maryland Genealogical Society Bulletin, 36, No. 2, Spring 1995,

   145-177.

  

   Captain James Truman Macgruder was Levin Wailes first cousin (son of Levin's mother's sister Elizabeth).

  

   Benjamin L.C. Wailes and his wife Rebecca Susan Magruder Covington were both 2nd cousins, once removed AND third cousins, once removed. They may

   not have been familiar enough with their respective family trees to be aware of that. It is evident that Sydnor didn't have sufficient access to the family

   genalogies to know that in 1938."

   4042.  Died: during 1725 at Prince George Co MD aged 40.  Mar: around 1707 at Maryland MD to Hollyday, Margery 4055. One story suggests that he was a

   French Huguenot, he emigrated to U.S. in 1695 and settled in Maryland. However the more logical research suggests he was born in Somerset Co MD.

  

   He established himself on an estate acquired on the Patuxent River in Prince George's County, comprised in part of an original grant made to Thomas Pagett

   by Lord Baltimore in 1695 and which, according to the title deeds, was bounded in part by "the ancient lines of the Qunraico Manor", the original Indian name,

   it is presumed, of the place which is now known as "Aquasco".

  

   There, at an early age he died in the family mansion erected in 1725, and there were born and raised his descendents for three generations.

  

   His will written 27 Jan 1724 and probate 24 Nov 1725, states: "To wife Margery & son Leonard, dwelling plantation equally during life of wife & at her decease

   to son Leonard and his heirs.

  

   To daughter Elizabeth & heirs 500 acre Hollydays Choyce. Residual of real estate on both Eastern & western shore, to be sold by executors if necessary for

   payment of debts: if not sold to be divided equally between son & daughter aforesaid equally. Executors to confirm sale of tract formerly bought off Thomas

   Paggett to Abraham Wilson & heirs for £100.

  

   To wife, son & daughter residue of personal estate equally" - Overseers Leonard Hollyday, James Hollyday, Bejamin Wailes, Robert King.

   11251, 12447 & 19491).

  

   Maryland Marriages 1634-1777 by Robert Barnes gives this marriage as William "Covinton" in 1742 in Queen Anne's County. No month or day are included,

   and the compiler makes no mention of these omissions though other marriages prior to 1742 include this information.

  

   As yet, there is no known reference for the marriage of this William to Rachel, so there is no proof of her maiden name as Thomas. Her first name Rachel is

   known by William's will. It is even possible that he never married a Rachel & the one mentioned in his will is his step-mother!!

  

   William patented 140 acres as " Covington's Necessity " in Tully's Neck on the west side of Tuckahoo Creek in Queen Anne's Co., Md. In 1754, Wm. Bought "

   Rachel's Desire ", 37 acres, from Henry and Rachel Covington (his father and step-mother). He traded these tracts to Nathaniel Covington for 91 acres of "

   Hinsely's Plains ", also in Queen Anne's. This he later sold to Mathew & Tilghman in Nov 1756.

  

   His wife, Sarah, joined in these conveyances. MD patent books TI #1, p. 494, BT & BY, p. 583, Queen Anne's Co., MD. Deed books RT #D, pp. 183, 289, RT

   #E, p. 86. First Covington in Anson Co., NC. Had a land grant deeded 25 Jan 1768. For 20 pounds, Wm. Bought from John Long and Mary Blacksmith, 150

   acres on Baggots Branch of Cartiledge Creek, NE side of Pee Dee River, as granted to Abraham Baggot on 5 Dec 1760.

  

   Can be found in the Anson Co. Deed Book H - I, p. 364. This land is now in Richmond Co. Wm was excused from paying Poll Tax in July Court 1788 (

   Richmond Co. ) because he was over 60 years old ( court minutes p. 146 ). Wm. Is reported to be a revolutionary patriot for furnishing supplies to the

   revolutionary army. Buried at Cartiledge Creek Baptist Church.

  

   Some confusion exists as to his children, their mothers & dates/locations of birth.

    11185, 11251, 12447 & 19491). Correspondence received from Irene Webb Dorsey, Seabrook Island, SC in May 2012 implies that this William is indeed

   son of John C, but is not the William (ref 19491) who became an Adjutant General to Gen George Washington.

  

   She wrote "I believe a woman named Eleanor Pratt Covington McSwain initially was the source of this error. Mrs Elizabeth Covington, a lifetime member of

   Cartledge told me that Ms. McSwain "made a lot of errors", and that is certainly true in my case.  She married my 7 greats grandfather John Webb to Patty

   Covington, who was acutually married to his son, John  Turner Webb.  Mrs. McSwain wrote a book called "My Folk, the first 300 years." (renedee42@aol.com)

   THOMAS COVINGTON. Ref: 10778. Born: during 1755 at Rockingham NC. Father: Wiilliam, Father Ref: 11251. Mother: Thomas, Rachel, Mother Ref: 11253.

     Died: during 1809 at Franklin Co GA aged 54.  Mar: around 1780 at Rutherford Co NC to Susannah 10792. In 1801 he purchased land on Brushy Creek of

   the First Broad River near his brother William. Thomas was on the 1782 composite roll of Sandy Run Baptist Church, Mooresboro, NC. Barbara Dixon Hurst

   says he and his family moved to Franklin Co., GA in the late 1780s. Land records and the rolls of the Sandy Run Baptist Church would indicate he did not

   make this move until 1803-1805. Some of his family probably stayed in NC. The Thomas Covington family is apparently the only Covington (Coventon) family

   at the Sandy Run Church.

  

   There are research sources who suggest that his parents were William (ref 10775) & Mary Walker. Birth dates tie up with the rest of their children in the

   Rutherford NC area, but as yet it is not possible to catagorically confirm or deny this view.

   Died: 14 Nov 1813 at French Mills NY aged 45.  Mar: 22 Oct 1789 at Aquasco MD to Somerville, Susannah 4169. 2nd Mar: around 1796 at Maryland to

   Mackall, Rebecca 3737. Left school at an early age to the care of a widowed mother, he and a younger brother, received a good English education and made

   such acquaintance with the classics as the local institutions of learning of that day could impart. Nurtured in the midst of the U.S. revolutionary struggle for

   independence, it is probable that the scenes by which he was surrounded may have given that direction to his ambition and inspired that love of country which

   devoted him to her defence and controlled his latter destiny.

  

   Among the earliest recollections of his childhood was the watching from an eminence at his home, commanding an extensive view down the Patuxent, the

   predatory parties of the British soldiery, who in their boat excursions were want to ravage and plunder the estates bordering upon the river; the same point

   from which he witnessed the burning of the mansion of a near relative at Hallowing Point, opposite Benedict, by these marauders.

  

   Arrived at manhood and having grown to be a big, raw boned 6 footer who enjoyed running and wrestling, his country firmly established under a free

   government and with the prospect of a career of prosperity, he contracted an early marriage, and settled down upon his paternal acres in the avocation of a

   planter, that of his ancestors, with little expection that the career upon which he had entered would be changed to one of strife and perilous adventure.

  

   His wife and first child died soon after 1790 and this tragedy gave him the wandering habit. Of those deaths, he wrote; " made a wreck of my domestic

   enjoyments and rendered distasteful my rural pursuits". He went to Philadelphia, dallied with the law and worked as an aide to Thomas Jefferson, then

   Secretary of State, splitting his time there and managing the family estates back home. Restless at 23, he entered the United States Army as a cornet of

   Cavalry on 14 March 1792.

  

   Commissioned Lieutenant of Dragoons by General Washington in 1793 and volunteered to fight Indians with Gen. "Mad Anthony" Wayne, a cavalryman who

   learned military tactics and mastered several Indian languages. While moving about in the northwest frontier, Covington struck up a close relationship with

   Merry Rivers, a beautiful, young, half-Irish, half-Indian maiden, whose father built forts for the Army. She travelled with him for several years and "cared for

   Covington's clothes, cooked meals and took care of his manly needs".

  

   He scouted for Wayne, located sites for forts, and at two major battles, Fort Recovery and Fallen Timbers, Miami, distinguished himself in battle. Wayne

   praised him in official reports for his "courageous, forceful" deeds and leadership. For his energetic charges, jumping over obstacles as in a steeple-chase,

   Indians gave him a name and reputation: "The Wind of Wayne". While Wayne was negotiating, Covington continued to go scouting for fort sites and

   settlements but returned to find that his love, Merry Rivers, had died of a summer fever. Although promoted to a captaincy he resigned 12 September 1795 to

   engage in further agricultural pursuits and politics back in Maryland.

  

   2nd Marriage; c.1796 to Mackall, Rebecca & had 6 children, all names not known. He did some surveying for Jefferson, his old boss, and was sometimes a

   guest at Mount Vernon. Farming was not always prosperous when tobacco prices fell, and its production wore out the land.

  

   Covington and his brother kept looking for "a land of promise" even while he, the good Jeffersonian, served both for the Marland Senate and the House of

   Representatives. The frugal Covington didn't  like Annapolis or Washington, judging from his letters, which complained about too much spending, too much

   drinking and gambling, and too much "swish-swish" from powdered ladies. "Those epicurean Gents not faithful to their wives will fritter away their marriages,

   rob their children, and break down the foundation of their existence".

  

   He had been a member of the State House of Delegates for many years and was elected as a Democrat to the 9th Congress (4 March 1805 to 3 March

   1807), but he was a man of the outdoors, the frontier. He was appointed by his friend, now President Jefferson as Lieutenant Colonel of the regiment of Light

   Dragoons on 9 January 1809 and as Colonel on 15 February 1809, the only such regiment in the military. That year, he moved his family to the frontier of

   Mississippi and bought a plantation near Natchez that he called "Propinquity" because it was close to his base.

  

   Was in command at Fort Adams on the Mississippi in 1810 and took prossession of Baton Rouge and a portion of West Florida, making these years his best.

    He was training troops, skirmishing with Indians, surveying the wild country in Alabama and Florida, battling the Spanish, living outdoors, but able to return to

   his wife and plantation.

  

   When war was declared on Britain he was called back to Washington, ordered to the northern frontier and appointed Brigadier General by President Madison

   on 1 August 1813. He didn't like it but never flinched from an order. From Baltimore, he wrote to his brother "I long for victory and return to the embrace of my


   sweet family … If you must worry, do so about the strange gods of war". In November 1813 he was part of an invasion army of 8,000 men on 300 boats that

   had started at Sachets Harbour, N.Y, and floated down the St Lawrence River amid the Thousand Islands. To move around dangerous rapids, the army had to

   land several times, and then back again to the water. Canadian Militia, with their Indian allies, resisted. Covington, the cavalryman par excellence, helped beat

   back these nipping attacks.

  

   On 11 November 1813, the Americans ran into a combined British-Canadian force, some 1,500 in all, near Williamsburg, Upper Canada, Ontario, some 70

   miles from Montreal. The Battle of Chrysler's Field was fierce, one-fifth of those in it were killed or wounded. Covington led an attack on the enemy's right flank

   and helped drive them back. He was still on his horse urging his men forward against a second line of defence when a sharpshooter from a farmhouse shot

   him through the body. He fell where he always fought, at the head of his men, and survived but two days before he died at Frenchs Mills, New York on 14

   November 1813. The campaign designed by Gen. James Wilkinson to capture Montreal, proved to be a dismal failure and all were turned back.During his

   final 48 hours he lamented to his aide-de-camp Lt. Col. Winfield Scott and others, that he had to die so far from his wife, his six children and his brother.

  

   His last words were recorded as being "Independence forever". He was buried at French Fields, where Fort Covington, N.Y. was established by the Canadian

   border and named after him. Seven years later his remains along with those of other fallen veterans were removed to Sackets Harbour, Jefferson County, New

    York, on 13 August 1820 and the place of burial is now known as Mount Covington.

  

   Covington, Louisiana; Fort Covington, New York; Covington, Kentucky; Covington, Georgia; Covington, Ohio; Covington County, Alabama; Covington, New

   York; Covington, Pennsylvania and Covington County, Mississippi, are named after him.

  

   “Fort Covington Namesake Died Leading Troops” - article by Erik M Zissu - Times Statt Writer

  

   FORT COVINGTON - A British sharpshooter leveled his weapon and shortened the life of Brigadier General Leonard Covington 176 years ago.

  

   “He fell where he always fought, at the head of his men, and survived but two days," according to a serialization of a work by historian Leonard Jamison.

  

   General Covington was killed while on horseback leading his brigade in what has come to be known as the Battle of Chrysler's Field, which was fought in

   nearby Upper Canada Village on Nov. 11,1813. The anniversary of that battle this year coincided with Veterans Day.

  

   Fort Covington, previously named French Mills, was named after the general who was brought to the shores of the Franklin County town where he died. But the

    body of General Covington was taken to Sackets Harbor in Jefferson County, along with the bodies of his aides who had also fallen during combat, on a

   barge in 1821.

  

   Today, the location of the general's grave, as well as that of Gen. Zebulon Montgomery Pike, who were the only generals to die during the War of 1812,

   remains unknown.

  

   Historian Robert J. Brennan who says he has the most complete records of military cemeteries in Sackets Harbor, said it is uncertain whether the grave of the

   Maryland-born general will ever be located. But he has been trying to interest a newspaper in Covington, Kentucky, in starting a drive to place a marker at

   Sackets Harbor commemorating the general and his courageous leadership.

  

   Despite this project, the acts of General Covington have been revived somewhat by the placement of historical markers around Fort Covington in recent years.

  

  

   And in 1987, the Fort Covington Sun published 29 excerpts from Mr. Jamison's work about the little-known general Fort Covington Town Historian Jacqueline

   Harvey supplied several pieces of this historical writing that illuminates the general's last days and his death:

  

   Through the fall of 1813, the American Army was battling the British and their fleet, a Canadian militia and various Indian bands. General Coviington

   participated in several of these conflicts that raged on both present-day U.S. soil as well as on the Canadian side of the St. Lawrence River.

  

   On Nov.10, 11 days after the general's 45th birthday, a contingent of soldiers and an accompanying flotilla moved down the river near Upper Canada Village.

   That night, the soldiers were forced to lie on their weapons to keep them dry from a heavy rain. Voicing apprehension about the ferocity of the engagements up


    to that point, the soldiers forced General Covington to address them regarding their duties.

  

   “We have no choice but to onward because without independence and liberty, there would be no choice," the general is supposed to have said.

  

   Whether these words had a calming effect on the soldiers, the brigade was up in the morning and continued to march along the St. Lawrence River toward

   Chrysler's Field. The British also advanced as the opposing sides reached the field. General Covington was not required to participate in the battle, but did so

   to aid the American approach.

  

   As he rode with his men into the fight, General Covington moved toward the British artillery. After pushing them back from the left side of the attack, he

   attracted the attention of a group of sharpshooters who were holed up in a house on the field.

  

   "At this critical moment, while bravely leading his men, he was shot through the body. His fall disconcerted the brigade and a shower of grape shot at that

   moment scourged it severely," one account of the battle reads.

  

   From the battlefield, the general was brought across the river and up the Big Salmon River to a house in French Mills Three days later, he died and was buried,

    only to be later taken to Sackets Harbor where the regiment was stationed.

  

   In 2007 there is to be a new headstone at Mount Covington Demetery to commercate his death (courtesy of Gary O'Dell - Odellcaptain@aol.com)

   1788- 1791 at Maryland MD aged 41.  Mar: during 1765 at Maryland MD to Webb, Robert . Lived long enough to see her eldest son John Turner Webb, marry

   Patty Covington (11512), daughter of Henry Covington (11506). After her death, her husband Robert married again and died in 1816 leaving 16 living children.

    By age we can tell some of the ones that belonged to Keziah and we know three who moved to Tennessee with Sophia Chears, Robert's second wife, after

   his death.

  

   Robert and his father, John Webb, were important in the history of Anson/Richmond County, NC and signed the Anson Reglators petition in 1769, protesting

   against exorbitant import taxes. Robert had approx five royal land grants, ownig 1000 acres and three slaves at his death. In his will he freed the slaves after

   seven years. He was the "Entry Taker" keeping book with record of ownership of land. He served 7 years in the State Legislature and 6 in the Senate. His

   daughter Susan Webb (11825), married Christopher Columbus Covington (11754) (info from Irene Webb Dorsey Mar 2002)

   JOHN COVINGTON. Ref: 11261. Born: during 1754 at Richmond Co NC. Father: William, Father Ref: 11185. Mother: Wall, Mary, Mother Ref: 11186.  Died:

   28 Feb 1797 at Marlboro Co SC aged 43.  Mar: around 1776 at Richmond Co NC to Thomas, Elizabeth 13571. John, the grandfather of the Colonel, had won

   the affections of Elizabeth, the daughter of Rev. Robert Thomas, and, leaving his five brothers in Richmond county, North Carolina, had settled upon the north

   side of Little Pee Dee in Robeson, North Carolina, and was building up a comfortable home when the revolution came on.

  

   His sympathy with the patriot cause soon made him an object of dislike to his loyalist neighbors, who stripped him of his means of living and left him with

   nothing but his family. Leaving his wife and babies  with her friends, he sought his revenge in the ranks of the patriot army. When the war ended, he settled

   upon a farm beside his brother-in-law, Nathan Thomas, upon the plains of Hebron. (Traditions by Col John Covington 1897 -  Marlborough County SC

   Archives)

  

   The land which John Covington acquired immediately after the Revolution was so fertile and his descendants such good farmers, that all of his land is still in

   the hands of his descendants. John Covington, with his relatives and neighbours started a Bush Arbor Church a few feet from the present Hebron Church and

   services have been continuous ever since. The cemetery at Hebron was given by the Covingtons and although it is probably the largest country cemetery in S.

   C. almost every person buried there is a descendant of John & Elizabeth Covington.

  

   Now follows the will of John Covington:  Will Book A, page 21 and 22:

  

   I, John Covington (son of William) of Marlboro County, S. C. being sick and weak in body but of perfect and sound mind do make and ordain the following as

   my last Will and Testament, with respect to my estate both real and personal that it has pleased God to bless me with:

  

   I give unto my beloved wife, the sorrel gelding that I purchased from Jesse Bethee, the feather bed and furniture and side saddle which I had with my wife

   together with a bridle. My land I will to be equally divided between my three eldest sons, William, Robert and Tristram.

  

   My three daughters, Sarah, Mary and Nancy 1 will to have HH household furniture equally divided between them and also for them to have each one cow and

   calf, And the residue of my property I will to be sold at private or public sale as my executors hereafter mentioned may judge best and after my debts are paid

   out of the proceeds thereof, that the balance thereof be equally divided between my son Thomas and the child that my wife now goes with, but if my wife does

   not bring forth a live born child, then in that case my will is that my wife do have what is before mentioned to be given to the child that she is now supposed to

   go with, and I do will and ordain my friend, Robert Thomas and Nathan Thomas to act as Executors to this my last Will and Testament.

  

   In testimony whereof I have hereunto put my hand end seal this twelfth day of February 1797. His John Covington, Signed, sealed, published, promoted and

   declared to be the last will and Testament of the above named John Covington EY the testator in presence of:  Abijah Porter,  Henry Covington, Robert

   Billy.

  

   Rockingham Market Newspaper, 21 Jul 1927, Everett Sketches (an article on Covington history) refers to "Sugar Ben" and "Uncle Billy" as brothers. However

   according to Covington Lores and Legends they were in fact, 1st cousins. "Uncle Billy" being Willam, the 6th child of John Covington and Hannah Dockery

   while "Sugar Ben" was Benjamin, the 1st son of Banjamin Covington and Francis Mooreman. The fathers, John (b 1752) and Benjamin (b 1757) were the sons

    of William Covington (b 1730).

  

   It is complicated to confirm actual facts as another source confirms he is son of same John but with his second wife Nancy Love (Wall) and that his middle

   name is Wall. I have therefore treated them as 2 separate individuals, be it with the same father. See also William Wall Covington (11438). I would be grateful

   for some clarification There is also possible confusion with William (11251) who is also listed as marrying a Rachel Thomas.

   JOHN V COVINGTON. Ref: 10784. Born: during 1775 at Marlboro Co SC. Father: William, Father Ref: 11350. Mother: Polly, Mary, Mother Ref: 17825.  Died:

   during 1837 at Amite Co MS aged 62.  Mar: 16 Feb 1796 at Rutherford Co NC to Covington, Susannah P 10783. The John V. Covington, Jr. who married the

   daughter of Thomas (10778), Susanna in 1796 may well have been John's son and first cousin of the bride. They lived after marriage at Carnesville GA. Will of

    1837 is located in the courthouse at Liberty MS.

  

   John moved to Georgia sometime after 1796. It is believed several Covington families moved to Georgia during the same period. He served in the War of

   1812, during the year of 1814. His service commenced on November 21, 1814, and was to expire on May 20, 1815. He was in Company C, Riflemen, 4th

   Regiment of the Georgia Militia. Company Commander was Captain Adam G. Saffold. Battalion Commander was Lt. Col. Jones.

  

   The company pay roll shows his service actually expired on May 6, 1815, at Ft. Hawkins. His time of service was charged as 5 months, 23 days. He was paid

   travel pay from his home to the rendevous with his company, and back. Distance from his home to the rendevous was 60 miles, therefore the round trip

   distance was 120 miles. He was allowed 8 days for the round trip. He was paid $46.65 travel pay. A company muster roll shows he was present at Camp

   Hope on December 10, 1814.

  

   Another company muster roll shows he was present but sick at Camp 3 Mile Creek on March 1, 1815. After the war, John moved his family to Amite County,

   Mississippi.

  

   Heirs named in the will of John Covington, signed September 10, 1837; probated July 23, 1838: Sons John R. Covington, Thomas Covington, and William

   Covington. Daughters Nancy L. Covington, Mary E. Whittaker, and Susan E. Williams. Grandchildren Frederick, John, and Jane Brasill (apparently children of

   a deceased daughter).

  

   Last Will & testament of John V Covington Sr Deceased: "I John Covington of the County of Amite in the state of Mississippi being in sound mind do make

   and publish this my last will and testament hereby revoking and making void all former wills by me at any time herebefore made, and first I desire that my body

   Research Notes: 1820 Census of Amite County, Mississippi, page 30: John Covington males, 1 under 10, 1 10-16, 2 16-26, 1 45 and over. females, 1 under

   10, 3 10-16, 1 45 and over.

  

   The 1830 Census of Amite County, Mississippi shows John Covington and his son William Covington were still living in Amite County. William was married

   and living seven houses away. John's son, Thomas Covington, was married and living in an adjoining county, Franklin County, Mississippi. 12

  

   Marriage Notes: John and Sussanah were married and living in Fayette Didtrict, Richmond County, North Carolina, at the time the first census of the United

   States was taken in 1790. There were no children in the household at the time. They are presumed to have been married only a short while at that time.

   WILLIAM LITTLE COVINGTON. Ref: 5749. Born: 5 May 1802 at Richmond Co NC. Father: William Wall, Father Ref: 5745. Mother: Covington, Mary Smith,

   Mother Ref: 11334.  Died: 20 Aug 1864 at North Carolina NC aged 62.  Mar: around 1828 at North Carolina NC to Thomas, Cecelia Stuart 5759. Another

   source suggests that he may have had a first wife named Francis Dockery Thomas. (D E Covington 1991). According to 1840-1860 census they lived in the

   Black Jack Distroict of Richmond Co. He was a farmer having Real Estate of 3,000 and a personal estate of 10,000 (WD Bostick Aug 2001)

  

   The family of William and Celia Covington are listed in the 1850 census as living in the Black Jack District of Richmond Co., NC (#943):

   William Covington, 48m (b abt 1802), farmer, NC

   Celia Covington, 32f (b. abt 1818), NC (transcriber’s error?)

   Edwin Covington, 20m (b. abt 1830), farmer, NC

   Presley Covington, 19m (b. abt 1831), farmer, NC

   Mary Covington, 17f (b. abt 1833), NC

   John Covington, 10m (b. abt 1840), NC

   Thomas Covington, 6m (b. abt 1844), NC

   William Covington, 1m (b. abt 1849), NC

  

   The family of William and Celia Covington are listed in the 1860 census as living in the Black Jack District of Richmond Co., NC. (p. 734, line 37; Household

   #502): 

  

   COVINGTON, William L.; age 58 (b abt 1802); farmer; real estate 3,000; personal estate 10,000.

   COVINGTON, Celia; age 32 (b abt 1828); domestic.

   COVINGTON, Thos. B., age 15 (b. abt 1845).

   COVINGTON, William, age 11 (b abt 1849).

   BOSTICK, Mary A., age 27 (b. abt 1833); domestic.

   BOSTICK, Wm, age 5 (b. abt 1855).

  

   In this pre-war era, they are relatively prosperous; a net worth of $13,000 in 1860 would be equivalent to abt  $280,000 in the year 2001. 

  

   In 1857, W.L. Covington prepared his will (Richmond Co., NC, Will Book Vol. 4, p. 186), leaving extensive property to his wife for her use during her lifetime. 

   However, after William’s death in 1864, Sherman and the U.S. Army passed through the county on the “March to the Sea.” Much of the property that was to go

   to William’s widow was destroyed by U.S. troops; the Confederate bonds and certificates were now worthless; the Negroes were emancipated. After the war,

   the children of William L. Covington pooled their own inheritance to provide Celia the means to maintain a small farm.

  

   From M. Bridges (2001), Estate Records 1772-1933 Richmond County, North Carolina, Book I, p. 287: “An agreement entered into by and between the heirs

   of  W. L. Covington, dec’d for the benefit of our Mother. The consideration being that much of the property that was given to her by the will of our father was

   destroyed by the Army in 1865.  Now each of us agrees among ourselves to give to our mother, without sale or division, each and al of our parts or interest in

   the household and kitchen furniture and such farming tools as we may judge necessary for her to carry on a small farm all of which the will was ordered to be

   sold and equity divided among his children, all for her use and benefit so long as she may live. 

  

   Then all that remains must be sold and divided among the heirs. We also instruct the executors to the will of our father to act in accordance with the agreement

   set forth in this article and do hereby relieve them of the sale or division of the property herein mentioned.  In witness whereof we do hereunto set our hands

   and seals this July 1870. (signed) E. P. Covington, T. B. Covington, M. C. Ellerbe and wife N. W. Ellerbe, M. A. Bostick, W. L. Covington and J. W. Covington”.
