   WILLIAM COVINGTON. Ref: 3345. Born: 15 Nov 1618 at Harrold. Father: William, Father Ref: 2642. Mother: not known, Mother Ref: 0.  Died: 4 Nov

   1696 at Essex Co VA aged 78.  Mar: around 1639 at Pavenham to Ann 4024. 2nd Mar: around 1649 at Essex Co VA to Haywarton, Dorothy 6169.

   Christened: 15 Nov 1618 at Harrold. Said to have emigrated to the U.S. around 1645. Was in US before Dec 26 1668. Said to have received lands

   in 1670 for transporting emigrants to the colonies. He patented land in 1687 on the Dragon Swamp, between Covington's swamp and Chaney's

   swamp, this was known as the Quarter Plantation. And is located south of the present Tappahannock VA.

  

   He owned 1000 acres called Dragon Run and established Covingtons Mill in 1690 (the mill was rebuilt in 1808 and still stands today in Essex

   County)

  

   1697 - The will of William Covington dated 4 Nov 1696 was proved in court on 10 May 1697, Essex County, Virginia, Deed Book 9, Page 105,

   attested by Thomas Haywarton & Thomas Watkins.. One of his daughters, name not known,  married a William Brothers in 1683. He left all his land

   to his wife and 3 (?) sons (richard, Thomas & William). He also left a cow to one EllinorCorpe, who may have been his daughter, although this

   relationship is not mentioned in the will. A cow was also left to his grand-daughter Mary.

  

   (some info from Thomas Falconer book dated 1994 pages 54-68) (additional datafrom Martin Bryan Covington)

  

   Additional info from submission to Genealogy.com by Anne R Bruce: " descend from Thomas Howerton (often spelled Hayworten, etc.) of Virginia.

   In reading your list, here, it refers over and over to Dorothy, the wife of the emigrant William Covington as a daughter of Thomas Howerton.

  

   The Howertons don't have any proof that she was a Howerton but we acknowledge an extremely close friendship between the two men. She may

   have been a sister, but he was, by the existing records and deeds, a single man as late as 1670.

  

   If she was not a Howerton, the Covington records should reflect that her last name is unknown.

  

   William and Thomas did come to Virginia early, but as indentured servants transported by John and George Mott. This information was compiled by

    Howerton researcher, Bryan Howerton, whose work in always documented. The data discovered is:

  

   Thomas Howerton was born about 1640 in England, exact location not yet discovered. He came to the Virginia colony about 1663 as he was one of

   313 people claimed as "headrights" by the brothers Mott on 17 October, 1670. The Motts were awarded a Patent for 15,564 acres of land on waters

   draining into the Rappahannock River as compensation for the indentured people whom they had transported to the colony. William Covington, who

    became a partner of Thomas Howerton, was included in the group of people for whose transport the Motts received the land patent.

  

   So, in or around 1663, the Covington ancestor and the Howerton ancestor arrived together, as indentured men. We don't know the name of the wife

   of Thomas Howerton, but we know the first name of the wife of William Covington- it was Dorothy, but she and Wiliam were contemporaries of

   Thomas Howerton, not younger!

  

   By 1670, close to seven years after arrival, William and Dorothy Covington and Thomas 'Haywarton' paid 3000 pounds of tobacco to a William

   Richards for 300 acres on Dragon Swamp.

  

   We have never established any proof that Dorothy was a Howerton. What is the Covington proof of her surname? Thomas may not have even been

   married in 1670, as William and Dorothy sign as husband and wife, and Thomas Howerton signs alone, the deed dated 10 October, 1670.

   The land on Dragon Swamp they bought as partners, is a part, evidently of the 15,564 acres that the Motts were awarded.

  

   On 3 April, 1683, William Covington and Thomas Howerton were dividing the Dragon Swamp land. The abstract I have seen on this Agreement to

   divide omits the name of Dorothy.

   On 4 April, 1683, "Agreement between Howerton and Covington to divide land from Mr. Mott. Howerton to have land on the south side and

   Covington to have land on the north side of Dragon Swamp.

  

   On 17 April, 1683; Thomas Howerton witnessed a deed from William Covington to his brothers."

  

   The early Old Rappahannock and Essex records are the ones abstracted for all the data above.

    own supplies to do this since he was less than 10 miles from home. After the war he put in a claim for about 60 pounds in personal expenses and

   was apparaently paid in full. His will is in the state archives in Columbia SC (info from Bryan Covington 2002)

   mail from Mike Merritt Feb 2010 - outlndr@msn.com "Hello -

    

   I have enjoyed studying your very helpful website. I think I may have found out what happened to Ann Covington, d/o William and Rosamond. This

   isn't quite proven, but I was hoping to send this timeline to somebody researching this line to see what they thought.

    

   William Covington had married a Rosamond unknown. William's will, proven in 1721, lists among others, a minor daughter Ann.

    

   Widow Rosamond Covington remarries William Carroll after 1721, making Ann his step daughter. (Your website seems to suggest that Caroll was her

   maiden name, but really she picked it up after William Covington died. Your site is quite good by the way, very helpful to me)

    

   Rosamond dies before 1731. Between 1728 and 1731, William will marry another Widow, Mary Gresham. So now Ann Covington has two step

   parents. She also picks up a step brother, Robert Gresham.

    

   In 1731, William and Mary (Gresham) Carol, and Robert Gresham, sell their combined interest in several properties to my ancestor, John Meritt. Very

    strong hint of a family connection behind these land sales and we have searched for it for months, eliminating many possibilities.

    

   In 1737, John sells these lands, and his wife ANN relinquishes dower. First record of her name as a Merritt.

    

   We have looked for Ann extensively. She is not a Gresham nor anybody else we know. She likely married John before the 1737 record. Other records

    make it appear that John Merritt has some kind of connnection to the Covingtons by 1727, although a different line than Ann's. (The line down from

    Richard SR to JR)

    

   I am suggesting that Ann Merritt is in fact Ann Covington, d/o William and Rosamond. They are the same age. John only came off his father's levy

   in 1722, suggesting he was born just after 1700. Very close to Ann Covington's age. And they have to be right there together by at least 1731. It's

   almost like Ann came with the property. By her being a step daughter of William Carroll and step brother  to Robert Gresham, we have a perfect

   explanation for the the apparantly family driven land sales to John Merritt. All these folks stick together in later records.

    

   John Merritt appears in several other Covington records as well, as if he were some kind of family, but none of that made sense until I saw this

   connection. Although, he may have a sister married to another Covington (Richard JR, cousin of William) but that is for another story!

    

   The only part of this I cannot prove is that Ann is in fact Ann Covington. Preponderance of evidence may be all I get.

    

   I am hoping you or a researcher you know might take a look at this and let me know what you think. I can flesh out the timeline with actual records

   and sources.

    

   Thanks for your time!

    

   Sincerely, Mike Merritt"

   "King Cerdic, Reined King of the West Saxons, 519 - 534 AD, England" by D. A. Sharpe Aurora,Wise County, Texas. March 29, 2006. Updated

   Postings on the Internet: http://www.dasharpe.com/geneology/Cerdic.pdf. King Cerdic is the 50th great grandfather of my son-in-law, Steven Odis

   Westmoreland.

  

   King Cerdic is the 37th great grandfather of Edward Southworth, the first husband of Alice Carpenter, my eight times great grandmother. Since I am

   descended from the union of Alice with Gov. William Bradford of the Mayflower, technically there is not a direct relationship to Cerdic. However, it is

    my pleasure to claim the indirect relationship to Kings of such antiquity, and to know our daughter married into this line. She and Steve are 34th

   cousins, four times removed.

  

   Cerdic represents the oldest identified ancestor of this writer, being in the 51st generation. That means that an average generation for this line is less

    than 30 years each.

   It was said that Cerdic and his son, Cynric, came into Britain on five ships about 495 AD. They were one of those many nomadic Germanic tribes of

   people whose barbarian savagery and rough manner of life struck terror in the hearts of many peoples where ever they were attacked across Europe.

   He was a Saxon earldorman who founded a settlement on the coast of what became known as Hampshire, England.

  

   By the time Cerdic was born, according to tradition, St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, may have already died in Saul on March 17, 461 or

   maybe as late as 493. Source:http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/11554a.htm Cerdic was recognized as King of the West Saxons in 519, and reined

   until 534. In 534, Cerdic's forces conquered the Isle of Wright. Later in this year was when Cerdic died. We all have heard of the illusive King Author

   of England. It is impossible to pinpoint who he was or exactly when he, if he was one person and not an embodiment of several hero Kings, ruled

   English land sides. However, the time of Cerdic's arrival is right in the time span when many believe King Author was roving the land. (Source:

   COVINGTON IV

  

   [This William was the son of William Covington III and Ann Coleman. Many researchers record his wife as one Frances Kavanaugh - though

   documentation for this seems lacking, various family records record her name as such. Her parentage is undocumented - although many record her

   as a daughter of Philemon Kavanaugh Sr. or Jr. - Frances Kavanaugh Covington seems to have died before this will was written]. There are other

   researchers who suggest that only Robert was son of Mary Frances Kavanaugh & that all the other children were from William's marriage to Amy St

   John - awaiting confirmation.

  

   In the name of God, Amen, I William Covington of Culpeper County, being in a weak and low state of health, but through the mercy of God is

   restored my proper senses, doth make this my last will and testament and revoking all other wills heretofore made by me.

  

   I give and bequeath to my daughter Ellinor Hensley a certain tract or parcel of land adjoining John Strother and the North side of the South Fork of

   the Rush River being part of one hundred acres I bought of the said John Strother, beginning at a white oak standing on the river bank near a large

   rock that runs into the river thru a northerly course to a long line of marked trees to John Strothers line to the river and up the river to the beginning

   supposed to be about fifty acres which said land I give to my daughter Ellinor and her heirs forever be the same more or less.

  

   Item - my will is that all my land lying above the mouth of a small branch that comes round my upper meadow empties into the river near opposite

   to the upper end of Francis Covingtons meadow setting of from a small hickory thence running northerly to a line of marked trees beginning at two

   red oaks and a white oak, thence running near the course of the old field westerly to a white oak and hickory sapling, thence a north course to John

   Strother's line on my back line, thence along the said line to my corner and my brother Richard Covington, thence down a branch that is a line or

   boundary between myself and Richard Covington to the River, thence down the river to the beginning, supposed to be about one hundred and fifty

   acres, be the same more or less, which said land I leave to be equally divided between my three youngest daughters: Grizzel Cooper, Elizabeth

   Covington, and Lucy Covington, to them and their heirs forever.

  

   Item - I give all the rest of my land except the acres I reserve for a burial ground to my son Robert Covington, to him and his heirs forever.

  

   Item - I give my negro man, Simon, to my son Robert Covington, to him and his heirs forever.

  

   Item - My will is that at my death, all my personal estate shall be equally divided between my daughter Elizabeth Covington and Lucy Covington.

  

   Item - I appoint my son Robert Covington, Robert Hensley, and William Covington to be my executors to this my last will and testament, in witness

   whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal this eleventh day of February, One Thousand Seven Hundred and Eighty Three.

   13912.  Died: around 1863 at Columbus MS aged 76.  Mar: around 1815 at Abbeville Co SC to Martin, Mildred Tutt 13935. Provision was made in

   his father's will for him and his brother Richard to complete their education before the estate was divided. He enlisted in the army during the war of

   1812. South Carolina raised 2 Regiments during the war named Youngblood's and Austin's. Austin's had a 1st Lt named Richard Covington, and 3

   Privates named Edmund, Richard & William Covington.

  

   There may have been another family of Covingtons living in that part of the state, possibly related to the Edmund Covington (6176) of Lunenburg

   Co VA. William and Richard later moved from Edgefield to Abbeville County and obtained land on the Rocky River in the upper part of the county.

   William remained there until 1836 when he moved to somewhere near Columbus MS on Wolfe Rd. The family farmed a large amount of land with

   many slaves.

  

   William had 2 slave boys of whom he was fond and named them Little Aaron & Big Aaron. He wrote his will in 1855. By that time all his children

   had died except Ben and James. By the time he died about 1863, James had died and Ben was fighting in the war and would not return, so any

   estate he left after the war probably went to the widows of these 2 sons. His will was probated in 1864 and is on file in the Court House in Columbus.

   He is probably buried in the family plot in Columbus MS (unmarked). A billfold that he once owned still exists. (info from Bryan Covington 2002)

   13912.  Died: during 1836 at Columbia SC aged 48.  Mar: around 1815 at South Carolina SC to Birley, Nancy 13937. An early family story said he

   was an officer in the Battle for New Orleans in the war of 1812 but the roster of troops at the battle\ site doesn't mention his name. He became

   wealthy for his time and owned many slaves, several show horses and a 50 saw cotton gin. The gin must have been hand-operated as it was only

   appraised at $100. In 1836 Richard wrote a log detailed will giving things to many friends and relatives and making special provision for a mulatto

   slave woman named Mima and her son Alfred (or Alford) to be provided with 50 acres of land and a comfortable cabin.

  

   Almost immediately he wrote a codicil to the will revoking almost everything and leaving most of his estate to his brother William. He did however,

   remember Mima and Alfred by providing that they be taken to one of the "free" states and allowed to remain there if she wished. No one knows who

   Alfred's father was. Roichard's will is on file at the state archives in Columbia SC (info from Bryan Covington)

   of same land as given to his father by his grandfather. He died in US Civil War. Info from Karen Ann Shepherd (mngkaren@aol.com) info also from

   John Hardy & Ann Williams family tree but they state he died 4 May 1841 in Macon, Bibb Co GA.

  

   Obit for John Burnette Covington-

   Macon Ga newspaper 'MACON TELEGRAPH' of May 4, 1841 (Bibb County, Ga)

  

   "John B. Covington, Esq, died near Altoona, Ga. On 9th inst. Suddenly, formerly of Hamburg, SC."

  

   Hamburg was located in SC just across the river from Augusta GA and is the area which was called formerly south of Campbellton. He rented a ware

   house (perhaps on lot 231) in Hamburg SC across from Augusta GA, See http://www.arete-designs.com/shultz/genealogy/index.html

  

   John B. Covington's family was already living in Alabama when he died and he may have been on a trip back to South Carolina to take care of

   some business. When John Burnette Covington left Hamburg, SC after 1833, he first settled in Cherokee Co. Alabama.

  

   John Burnette Covington was married to Lucilla Taylor b circa 1789 in SC. His descendants said that Mary Fair, a half/sister of the Covington

   children, daughter of Lucille and Isaac Fair was married to a Mr Anderson (of Edgefield SC?) and it was said that Mr Anderson was quite rich and left

    the Covington children much money but the Covington children reported that it never was trickled down or made available to them. So Mary Fair,

   step daughter to John Burnett Covington, married Mr. Anderson and they had no children but left her Covington half siblings money.

  

   1810 Lucilla Fair widow of Isaac Fair, living next to William Taylor (probably her father who was b ca 1750). Lucilla Fair has a young boy and a

   young girl (Mary?). She apparently married John Burnette Covington about 1815. Lucilla's daughter Mary Fair and her unknown brother went along

   to Alabama.

  

   So was it Lucilla Fair, Taylor or Traylor who John Burnette married?

   15107. Richard and Charles Covington were in the Civil War. After the war, the two boys left Rockingham County, NC with their mother and sister to

   move to Missouri where several of Elizabeth Hudnall Covington's siblings had migrated.

  

   The following article comes from a webpage ebntitled "The Covington, Hudnall & Hunley Connections" by Jerry Tate Dryden. It gives a detailed

   review of Richard Anderson Covington's life and makes references to various other members of his family:

  

   "Richard Anderson Covington was born in Rockingham County, North Carolina the son of Captain Joseph Anderson Covington and Elizabeth R

   Hudnall Covington.

  

   Six months after the end of the Civil War, Richard along with his brother Charles arrived in Missouri by covered wagon. In all, their father Joseph

   Covington had 12 children, with two wives, but records show only four of his offspring migrating to Missouri. The first three were the brothers

   mentioned above and their sister Mary Susan (May Sue) in December 1865. Several years later an older half sister, Catherine Covington Hudnall,

   who married their mother's brother Richard N. Hudnall arrived in Missouri.

  

   Additionally, the Covington brothers brought their mother Elizabeth Hudnall Covington, who had been widowed for two years and her younger

   unmarried sister, Mary C. (Polly) Hudnall. Their Aunt Polly had lived with the Joseph Covington family for many years, probably to assist in raising

   their large number of children. Richard and Charles had made their father a deathbed promise in 1863 that they would always care for their mother,

   aunt and sister.

  

   The Covington brothers, both had fought in the Civil War for the Confederate States of America. The story goes that near the end of the war they

   came upon a Union soldier acquaintance that had been hung by his thumbs by the Confederates. They rescued their friend. The brothers believed

   this to be such a savage and inhumane act that it motivated them to cross the lines and defect to the Union Army for the remainder of the war.

   According to the records contained in "NC TROOPS", Volume X, pages 12 and 13, Richard Covington enlisted as a private in Company D of the 5th

    Cavalry Regiment "Rockingham Rangers" of the 63rd Regiment, NC Troops, on February 9, 1864. On December 24th Richard transferred to

   Company A, The Rockingham Zollicoffers, joining his brother Charles who had enlisted in Company A, 45th Regiment, NC Troops, on the 24th of

   October 1864. "NC TROOPS" reported that on or about February 15th, 1865 they deserted to the enemy and were confined on the 21st of February

   1865 in Washington, DC, until released on a unspecified date after taking the oath of allegiance. At the end of the war it was decided that it would

   be best if they migrated west taking along several other family members.

  

   The Covington brother’s mother's sister, Nancy Williams Hudnall, had earlier married Thomas Weeks and they had migrated to Missouri in 1850.

   After arriving in Montgomery County, the Covington party stayed at the Weeks home, located about 1½ miles west of Mineola, until they could settle

    elsewhere. Most aspects of the entire covered wagon trip are recorded by Mary Susan Covington in a diary.

  

   As a point of interest, the Covington brother's sister Mary Susan was brought to Missouri because she was being courted by a tobacco "drummer"

   named John Jesse Hopper in North Carolina and the family did not want them to marry. They believed that bringing her to Missouri would probably

   put an end to their courtship.

  

   After arriving in Missouri in December of 1865 the Covington brothers were somewhat dismayed to see Mr. Hopper arrive on horseback the following

   spring. Mary Susan and John Hopper were married on May 23, 1866. The Covingtons agreed to the marriage if the couple promised to remain in

   Missouri. The couple obviously agreed, were married and lived on a farm directly across the old national road (highway 40) from Richard

   Covington's farm. They had only one son, Samuel Allen Hopper. Samuel, however, bore them 10 grandchildren.

  

   Richard Covington's wife to be, Nancy Margaret Hunley, arrived in Missouri in the Fall of 1872 by a covered wagon, driven by her older brother

   Daniel W. and his wife Tabitha Hudnall Hunley (Richard's maternal aunt). Nancy and Daniel's father had died in the Civil War and the 22 year old

   young lady was left in the care of her brother. The Hunley's also had brought with them Tabitha's mother Mary (Polly) Williams Hudnall who had

   been an invalid for more than nine years. They made a pallet for her in the wagon but she died within a month after arriving in Missouri. Tabitha

   also brought their 11 year old adopted son, Rufus Ward Hunley.

  

   The Covington's family story was that Tabitha and her sister Rebecca had found the abandoned baby in a brush pile near the home. Since Tabitha


   was married, she took the baby, naming him Rufus Ward Hunley. As noted several times below Rufus became entwined in the lives of many of the

   people of Montgomery and Callaway counties. There are records of other Hunleys coming to Missouri at various times. They are Martha (married an

   Auchly), Fannie (married R. W. Andrews), Daniel M. (never married- lived with his Aunt Rebecca Conley) and Sally (who married Lafayette

   Thompson).

  

   An interesting twist to this story is that Rufus Hunley, the abandoned baby, was rumored to be the son of the Covington brother's unmarried niece

   Emoline Virginia Covington (daughter of John Anderson Covington) back in North Carolina. The tale that the baby had been found in a brush pile

   was simply a cover to spare the family much embarrassment. Rufus Ward Hunley, was born on June 17, 1861 and died at the age of 93. He was

   raised by his adopted parents to be a school teacher and Baptist Preacher. He taught country schools in the area for many years. Some of his schools

    were Conley, Peytonia, Bridge (near Americus) and Freedom. Rufus returned periodically to North Carolina to visit his birth mother. On one

   occasion Emoline, who had married a Mr. Heath, came to Missouri to visit.

  

   After his adopted mother Tabitha's death in 1909 Rufus returned to Leaksville, North Carolina and taught school there for several years. While there

   he married Miss Lizzie Carter on September 16th, 1914. Soon afterward they returned to make Missouri their permanent home. Rufus and Lizzie

   had no children. Late in life Rufus reverted strictly to preaching. He married all of Richard and Nancy's children. He was loved by all his relatives and

    those who knew him. Rufus and Lizzie are buried at Nettle Cemetery. Pat Timmerberg who married Martha Margaret, the daughter of Joseph

   Burton Tate, said that Rufus Hunley was his only schoolteacher.

    

   It is well documented that the Covington family migrated from the Leaksville area in Rockingham County, North Carolina. In the obituary of Mary

   Sue, scribed by the Reverend Rufus Hunley, he writes that Mary Sue Covington Hopper had "professed faith at the age of 16 years, uniting with the

   Baptist Church of Leaksville, N. C. Leaksville is in Rockingham County only 2.8 miles south of the Virginia border.

  

   A great great great granddaughter of Joseph Covington has recently located their family home in Leaksville. Adjacent is the family graveyard with

   the headstones of Joseph A., his first wife Elizabeth and Richard Hudnall, his father in law still intact, Interestingly, the area of Leaksville has streets

   with the name Anderson (the middle names of Richard Covington and his father), Boone, and Henry. In 1968 the city of Eden, N.C. was formed from

    the towns, Leaksville, Spray and Draper. Rockingham County joins the Virginia Counties Patrick and Henry on the North. It was a Covington family

   rumor that Rufus Hunley was related to Patrick Henry through his birth father, purported to be a Mr. Ward.

  

   Charles W. Covington married Jennetta Tate on the 2nd of April, 1874. They lived on the "Old Holt Place" on the far western boundary of

   Montgomery County adjoining the farms of brother Richard Covington and brother-in-law John Hopper, over the border in Callaway County. They

   had four children, Margaret (Maggie), Joseph, Frances (Frances) and Celia Mae. Jennetta was the daughter of James Northerland Tate a brother of

   Caleb Warren Tate, grandfather of Joseph Burton Tate. Her brother Henry Franklin Tate and his wife Drushane Hall Tate were the parents of Henry

   Monroe (Mon) Tate, husband of Susan Rose Covington, youngest daughter of Richard Covington.

  

   Nancy Margaret Hunley at the age of 24 married Richard Covington on the 12th of November, 1874. After marriage they lived on a farm on the

   south side of the national road in Callaway County, adjoining the Montgomery County border and the farms of his sister and brother.

  

   Richard (Dick) Covington and Nancy had 5 children, Lucy Dillard (born August 27th, 1875), Sally Bette (born May 3rd, 1878), Judith Walker (born

   November 3rd, 1880), Charles Ruffin (born August 6th, 1882) and Susan Rose (born June 9th, 1886). They farmed the location described above

   until 1896 when Richard Covington became suddenly sick and died.

  

    Nancy stayed on the farm until her son Charles Ruffin married in 1906. Soon thereafter she moved to Portland, MO and lived with her daughter

   Sally Bette. Nancy died while visiting a sister, Mrs. Sally Thompson living near Williamsburg. Richard and Nancy Covington are buried in

   Montgomery County in the Holt-Covington Cemetery located on the old Charles Covington farm. Also buried in this cemetery are Charles Covington

   and his wife, Richard's and Charles' Mother Elizabeth, and their Aunt Mary C. (Polly) Hudnall. There are also numerous other Covingtons, Hunleys,

   Hoppers and Weeks over several generations resting there. Many of the other Hudnalls and Hunleys are buried about two miles due north in the

   Nettle Cemetery."

   13941. Known as Ben. He was not a slave holder and may have been a teacher or businessman. He bought the family plot in the Friendship

   Cemetery in Columbus MS. At the start of the Civil war he enlisted in the 35th Mississippi Infantry as a 1st Lt. His service record is in the National

   Archives in Washington DC and is about 20 pages long.

  

   The Confederates kept very good records at the beginning of the war and none by the end. At times he was 1st Lt, 2nd Lt and Captain. As a Captain

   he received $60 a month in Confederate money. The 35th was in almost continuous fighting in MS and AL. Ben was wounded at Corinth, captured

   at Vicksburg and killed at Mobile Bay where he was CO of Company H. He was probably killed on 9th April 1865 which was the day of the final

   charge and the same day that Lee surrendered in VA. (info from Bryan Covington)
