The Sixth Maine was about to lead an assault on rebel fortifications at Rappahannock Station, Virginia. As the sun went down, and the charge commenced, Leighton was struck in the neck by gunfire. He would be taken to a large house 2 miles from the battlefield, then transported by ambulance to Warrenton Junction, Virginia the following day.

From there, he was placed on a train to Armory Square Hospital in Washington, DC. Once there, Leighton's doctors found a mini-ball in his shoulder/back area and removed it. He was discharged for disability and returned to civilian life. The bullet's path had caused damage to his lung and rendered his left arm useless

25992 REV. Forrester McKaughan was a twin to Jesse Alfred. At times during h is lifetime he spelled his name "McKoin". Information from his Bibles s ays he was a member of the Protestant Church for thirty-five years. Th is would have been the Protestant Methodist Church, which was very popu lar in that area for many years. He then changed to the Christian Chur ch where he was a minister in Guilford County, North Carolina. The chu rch, now gone, was next to what is now the A. and I. Cemetery. Another d enomination built across the road from the cemetery and now uses it . H e and several of his family are buried in this cemetery. On one census , he spelled his name McKoin however later when gravestones were bought , it is spelled McCaughan. Rev. Forrester had been conducting a revival at the Mt Zion Church near P ilot Mountain, NC. As he rose to speak, he died of an apparent heart at tack, 30 September 188 3. Four Generations of McKaughans in America has the death date as 3 0 sep 1888. I have only a couple generations worked out for Rev. Forrester McKaugha n. I understand someone in Kernersville has been working on his line. I h ave through the years written to several McKaughan's of his line in Ker nersville but so far have not had any of them answer so the y must not w ant to share their information. Rev. Forrester McKaughan's Bible left a multitude of information he and o ther members of the family had written down. It is from his Bible that w e found my great-grandfather's, Rev. William McCoin, obituary. Rev. Wi lliam died after Rev. Forrester so someone had added this to the Bible, f or which we are thankful. OTHER INFORMATION FOUIND IN REV.

25993 Rev. George W. Pope, son of James Pope, was born in England. He was ra ised in the Church o. f England, in fact, he was named after the famed p riest, George Whitefield, but he changed his faith to Baptist after he g ot to America where he was a minister for over fifty years, forty-five o f the years at Abbotts Creek, North Carolina. When George was only six y ears old, his parents came from England to settle in Philadelphia. Jame s died there and his widow moved south to Baltimore where she dwelled f or some time, finally moving to what is now Guilford Co. , NC and settl ing on Pole Cat Creek. The first account we have of Elder Pope as a preacher is found in the o ldest records extant of Abbotts Creek Chruch in 1783, when it seems tha t they were commencing a new book, where his name is entered as pastor. A h istory of the Liberty Baptist Association (By Elder Henry Sheets) on Pa ge 40, sketches the life of Elder George Whitefield Pope as being one o f the foremost in the service of the church--his work being mainly in R owan (now Davidson Co., NC) "He figured most conspicuously in the Old S andy Creek Association, but his work as pastor for more than thirty yea rs was with the old Abbotts Creek Church. Here he did a work, the exten t of which eternity alone can tell." When he was ordained is not known. It is probable that he was a member o f Buffalo, an arm of Abbotts Creek Church, when he came to Abbotts Cree k as pastor. About 1783, he purchased a farm midway between Thomasville and High Poi nt one mile north of the Southern Railway, on the Guilford side of the C ounty Line. George Pope is given on the 1790 census of Guilford Co., NC, with 1 mal e over 16 years including head of family, 6 males under 16 years of age , and 2 females. In 1795 George Pope purchases 272 acres in Guilford Co., NC from Isaac H iatt. From the McCubbins Collection - Rowan Co., NC Public Library -Salisbury , NC: Rowan Co., NC, b ook 27 page 152: An indenture from the heirs of t he deceased George Pope (who are Mary, Jesse , Charles, James, & Willia m Pope, John & Mary Chaplin, Phelees (Phebe) & Hugh McKaughan, on 6 Mar 1 818 to Isaac & Geo. Whd. Pope for 254 acres on Rich Fork of Abbott's Cr eek, for $160 .00, witnessed by Joseph & Benjamin Albertson, Isaac Glan don & Sherwood Kenneday, proved in a county court held at Lexington (No w the county seat of Davidson Co. where our courts too k examination of M ary (wife of John Chaplin) apart from her husband & proves on 5 Oct 181 9. T his land is a part of an old tract granted to Jacob & Joseph Wilso n by Gov. Samuel Johnston. Book 21 page 646: On 28 Nov 1798, George Pope of Guilford Co., NC gets 2 54 acres on Rich For k of Abbott's Creek, for $782.00 from Joseph Wilso n of Rowan Co., NC, witnessed by William Po pe & James Hopkins.(This ha d been granted by The State to Jacob & Joseph Wilson). History of Liberty Baptist Association , page 82: Morgan Edwards says t hat Shubert Stearns an d his company of sixteen Baptist (including hims elf and wife) came to Sandy Creek 14 Nov 1755 , and on the 22nd day of t he same month, Sandy Creek Church was Constituted. He further say s tha t in three years' time they had increased to three churches and 900 com municants. The fi rst church which sprang off was Abbott's Creek, the o ther. Deep River. Page 83: NC, Rowan Co., Jenevary ye 4 day, 1783: For the Baptist Church i n Abets Crick & afte r confession of faith, members are given with Geor ge Pope as pastor. From this time to Sep 18 13, George Pope was pastor, m aking about thirty-one years. Preached in a log house a few yard s east o f present church. Went to SC later. Commencing January 1783, he continued as pastor without any interruptio n till September 1813 , when he and his wife were granted letters of di smission. From The Descenants of Silas Peace: He was doubtless a man of mo re than ordinary power . The principles as believed and taught by Bapti sts very naturally inculcate liverty of consc ience in all matters of r eligion. He was, therefore, loyal to the American cause during the s tr uggle for independence. This naturally enough rendered him obnoxious to t he Tory element wh o thought that, inasmuch as he was born on English s oil, he ought to be true to King George . Men (who were afterwards foun d to be Torries) called at his home inquiring for him tellin g his wife t hat they desired Mr. Pope to meet them at a certain school house. He me t them pro mptly only to learn that they intended to kill him. He obtai ned permission to preach before t hem for "one last time". In the deliv ery of his sermon, which was one of great power, some we re convicted a nd all were more of less wrought upon. At the close of the sermon, they t old hi m to go home that they would never trouble him again." After Rev. George retired, he kept getting the visions to "go to Lynche s Creek and preach" . He was a man in his eighties and he wasn't inter ested in preaching anymore, and he didn' t know where Lynches Creek was s o he didn't pay any attention to the visions. His crops an d cattle st arted dying so he got on his knees and prayed, "God, what do you want m e to do? " An angel appeared and told him to go to Lynches Creek and p reach; so he saddled up his best pony and headed for parts unknown. La ndmarks in his dreams he had the night before showed him he was on the r ight road. After traveling several days, he came into a town that was h aving a revival so he decided to stop and attend. After everyone had s poken, he asked if h e could say a few words. He spoke with such vigor t hat after the meeting, a group of men cam e to him and asked if he woul d go to their town and preach. He asked them where they lived and they s aid, "down the road about five miles in a settlement called Lynches Cre ek". He was by that time in South Carolina. He was there until he die d five years later. This story i s on his monument in the church cemet ery the congregation erected in his honor. POPE, Rev. George Whitefield (I154)

They came from Cholderton, Wiltshire to Massachusetts Bay in 1634 on the "Mary & John" (on 26 March 1634, "James Noyce" was enrolled at Southampton as a passenger for New England on the Mary & John). They first settled in Ipswich & moved to Newbury in 1635.

They had nine children: Joseph, James, Sarah, Moses, Thomas, John, Rebecca Knight, William, & Sarah Hale.

In her will of 28 June 1664, the widow of James Noyes mentioned "my brother Mr. James Browne's," who may have been the minister of that name at Portsmouth.

James Noyes was brother of NICHOLAS NOYES. The two brothers were first cousins of THOMAS PARKER and fourh cousins of PETER NOYES .

25997 Rev. William McKaughan/McCoin: born 18 April 1813, Rowan (now Guilford ) County, NC. He marr ied Elizabeth Piggott (Pickett), daughter of Wil liam Piggott and Elizabeth Welborn, 1 Augus t 1833, at Cane Creek, NC. E lizabeth was born 16 August 1814. In 1840, William McKaughan began his training as a Methodist Protestan t minister under the t utelage of the famed Alson Gray. On May 11 1841 , he was given his license to exhort (preach) . On October 28, 1843, h e was made a Deacon. On May 1, 1845, he was given authorization t o be come a circuit rider. On November 14, 1847, he was advanced to an Elde r. On may 22, 185 9, he was sent to Georgia. On February 28, 1864, he w as assigned the Holly Creek and Holly C reek churches in the Georgia di strict. The family lived about twenty miles from Atlanta. During "Sherman's ma rch to the Sea" a ride r on horseback came to inform them that Sherman w as headed their way and burning everything i n sight. Rev. William hur riedly hid his sons in different places on the plantation, in cas e som e were found and killed, the others might be saved. He hid his wife, b abies and daughte rs among the reeds and lily pads at the pond and he t ook his best horse, a horse is very impo rtant to a circuit rider, to a c lump of trees the farthest point from his family and hid fo r he was af raid the horse might whinny and attract the soldiers attention. The so ldiers came , took what they wanted and burned the rest. When they all a gain gathered, no one was hurt b ut about everything they owned was bur ned. Upon investigating, they found the iron frame an d wheels of thei r wagon were usable. They built a flatbed on the frame and it was that f latb ed and that horse Rev. William saved that brought them to Kansas. Rev William homesteaded near North Homer Creek in Greenwood County, Kan sas; however, he was n ot there long enough to clear his deed. Elizabe th, his wife, died 4 April 1869 and is burie d in what is now called th e Worley Cemetery, near North Homer Creek. His oldest daughter, Su san nah, and two older sons: Rev. Alpheus and William Alson, had married by t hen, however, the y followed their parents to KS. Rev. William married a ll the rest of the children but the tw o youngest, Serena and Julius Sp ate, while in Greenwood County. Julius was working away fro m home and s ince Serena was a teenager, after his wife's death, Rev. William did no t feel i t was safe to leave Serena alone while he was on his circuit, s o he transferred to Emporia, K ansas, where one of his older daughters l ived at the time. She would be able to take care o f Serena while he w as gone from home. One of the chapels he was in charge of in Lyon Coun ty , Kansas was the Fowler Chapel, about five miles southeast of Empori a. It was on the John Fo wler farm. John Fowler had a daughter, Sally , who had been widowed twice and had several sma ll children. Rev Will iam McCoin married Sally Fowler Gregory Parker 8 April 1872 in Emporia . H e helped raise her children. Rev. William died in Emporia 2 March 1895 . He is buried be side Sally in the Hunt-Fowler private Cemetery, loca ted on the Fowler farm southeast of Empor ia. His preaching assignment s in KS were: Virgil and Eureka before churches were built, Empo ria Mi ssion, Fowler Chapel, Crystal Plains and Neosho Rapids. We found Rev. William using the spelling McKaughan when doing business a t the courthouses i n North Carolina and Georgia; however, all his prea ching certificates are made out as McCoi n but the first one in Kansas. I t was McCaughan. During the time his first wife died and h e was marry ing his children, he was using the spelling McCaughan. Around 1870, he , and all h is remaining sons excluding Francis Newton, changed their n ames to McCoin.

Rev. William McCoin died at his residence on East Street last Saturday n ight and was buried f rom Fowler Chapel today. This event removes a ve ry exemplary and influential character of lo ng standing, the terminati on of whose career is a matter of more than regret in this communit y. For more than forty years he has been in Kansas and mainly in this imme diate neighborhood. H e was born in North Carolina in 1813. Before co ming to Kansas his active work was in the sou thern states, much of it a s an itinerant in Georgia. About twenty years ago he became connec ted w ith the numerous Fowler families by marriage to Sarah, daughter of the l ate John Fowler , who survives him as his widow. He was the father of t en children, all but two who embrace d Christianity and three of these b ecame ministers of the gospel. At a very impressive funeral service this morning, a record kept in his o wn hand writing, wa s read, showing that his ministry had been instrume ntality of turning more than a thousand so uls from darkness to light. S urely he has lain up for himself incorruptible treasures. Hi s charact er was such as to fairly earn that which he received, the highest estee m of all wh o knew him. The widow and friends are the recipient of the most hearty and tender c onsolations and sympat hy from that appreciation of the dead is shown i n kindness to the living.

25998 Rev. William Worcester came from England and was settled pastor
of the church first gathered in Salisbury, Mass., sometime
between the years 1638 and 1640. Although not conclusive, good
and persuasive evidence exists to strongly suggest that he was
the son of William Worcester, the vicar of Watford,
Buckinghamshire, England, and was born October 5, 1595. (See
Introduction) He matriculated at St. John's College (Cambridge
University) in 1620. He was ordained deacon at Peterborough
Cathedral on Dec. 21, 1622. He was made Vicar of Olney July 26,
1624 - which office he retained till 1636, when on account of
refusing to comply with the command of his superiors to read to
his congregation from the King's book those portions which
allowed sports and recreations after service on the Lord's day,
he was suspended from his office of Vicar. He came to America a
year or two later. He and others petitioned the General Court
of MA to establish a new settlement. The settlement
was called Colchester and later renamed Salisbury. Here he
continued in the ministry till his decease, Oct. 28, 1662. His
grave in the old cemetery in Salisbury, is covered by a flat
stone upon which a bronze tablet was placed June 21st, 1913,
with the following inscription, -

Here lies buried the body of Rev. William Worcester, the
first minister of Salisbury, who came from England about 1639
and died 1662. This stone was laid on his grave to prevent
disinterment by wolves. This tablet is affixed by his
descendants, 1913.

No production of his pen has been transmitted to posterity to
indicate his intellectual character or attainments. Cotton
Mather, in the Magnalia, enrolls his name in the list of the
"reverend, learned and holy divines, arriving such from Europe
to America, by whose evangelical ministry the churches in
America have been illuminated." Johnson, in his "Wonder Working
Providence," mistaking the name, speaks of the first minister
of Salisbury, as, the "reverend and graciously godly M. Thomas
Woster." And the General Court says in an Order in reference to
the payment of his support, that "they of New Town (now
Amesbury) should
forebear to content themselves with private help, whilst the
Lord pleases to continue so bright a star in their

We may easily believe him to have been a man of exalted piety,
of strong intellectual fibre, of staunch devotion to the
dictates of conscience, of loyalty to his friends, and
interested in the affairs of state as well as of the church.

These traits are not lacking in his descendants. It is worthy
of note that as the generations of the family succeed each
other, the clerical mantle of their worthy progenitor seems to
descend as a direct heritage.

26032 Richard Warren appears to have been a merchant, who resided in London, a nd became associated with the Pilgrims and the Mayflower through the Me rchant Adventurers. Richard Warren participated in several of the early e xplorations made by the Pilgrims in 1620, while looking for a place to s ettle. He appears by land records to have been fairly well-to-do. He wa s not a member of the church. He came over on the Mayflower, he left be hind his wife and five daughters, planning to have them sent over after t hings were more settled in the Colony. His wife and daughters arrived i n America in 1623, on the ship Anne. As should be plainly obvious, there were many Richard Warrens in En gland. If the true Richard Warren is ever identified, it will almost ce rtainly be because the baptisms of his five daughters which should be s omewhere in England. There are a few other small clues which may aid re searchers looking for records. First, early Charlestown settler Ralph S pague married Joanna Warren, daughter of a Richard Warren from Fordingt on St. George, Dorset. This Richard Warren died in Fordington, Dorset b efore 1638. And early Watertown settler John Warren was baptized in Nay land, Suffolk, England in 1585, and he apparently had an uncle named Ri chard Warren. The only concrete things we know about Richard Warren's ancestry ar e that he was a merchant of London--whether he was born there or not is a n entirely different question. We also know that his wife was named Eli zabeth. He had five daughters baptized in England somewhere, and perhap s the true records will some day be brought to light. More erroneous information has been published about Richard Warren t han any other Mayflower passenger, probably because he has so many desc endants (note that all seven of his children grew up and married). It i s time here to debunk many of the mistakes that have been published ove r the past hundred years. Richard Warren's English origins and ancestry have been the subject of m uch speculation, and countless different ancestries have been published f or him, without a shred of evidence to support them.  Luckily in Decemb er 2002, Edward Davies discovered the missing piece of the puzzle.  Res earchers had long known of the marriage of Richard Warren to Elizabeth W alker on 14 April 1610 at Great Amwell, Hertford.  Since we know the Mayflower passenger had a wife named Elizabeth, and a first child b orn about 1610, this was a promising record.  But no children were foun d for this couple in the parish registers, and no further evidence beyo nd the names and timing, until the will of Augustine Walker was discove red.  In the will of Augustine Walker, dated April 1613, he mentions "m y daughter Elizabeth Warren wife of Richard Warren", and "her three chi ldren Mary, Ann and Sarah."  We know that the Mayflower passenge r's first three children were named Mary, Ann, and Sarah (in that birth o rder). WARREN, Richard MAYFLOWER (I13906)
26033 Richard was the eighth King of England of the House of Plantagenet. He ruled from 1377 until he was deposed in 1399. Richard was a son of Edward, the Black Prince and was born during the reign of his grandfather, Edward III. At the age of four, Richard became second in line to the throne when his older brother Edward of Angoul'eame died, and heir apparent when his father died in 1376. With Edward III's death the following year , Richard succeeded to the throne at the age of ten. In 1399, after his uncle, John of Gaunt died, the king disinherited Gaunt's son, Henry of Bolingbroke, who had previously been exiled (to France). Henry invaded England in June 1399 with a small force that quickly grew in numbers. Claiming initially that his goal was only to reclaim his patrimony, it soon became clear that he intended to claim the throne for himself. Meeting little resistance, Bolingbroke deposed Richard and had himself crowned as King Henry IV. Richard died in captivity early the next year, probably murdered. One account has him dead of starvation and thirst. As an individual, Richard was tall, good-looking and intelligent. Though probably not insane, as earlier historians used to believe, he seems to have suffered from certain personality disorders, especially towards the end of his reign. Less of a warrior than either his father or grandfather, he sought to bring an end to the Hundred Years War that Edward III had started. He was a firm believer in the royal prerogative, something which led him to restrain the power of his nobility, and rely on a private retinue for military protection instead. He also cultivated a courtly atmosphere where the king was an elevated figure, and art and culture were at the centre, in contrast to the fraternal, martial court of his grandfather. Richard's posthumous reputation has to a large extent been shaped by Shakespeare, whose play Richard II portrayed Richard's misrule and Bolingbroke's deposition as responsible for the fifteenth-century Wars of the Roses. Contemporary historians do not accept this interpretation, while not thereby exonerating Richard from responsibility for his own deposition. Most authorities agree that, even though his pol cies were not unprecedented or entirely unrealistic, the way in which he carried them out was unacceptable to the political establishment, and this led to his downfall. PLANTAGENET, Richard II King of England (I17125)

This family has plagued me for years.  I have Samuel as son of Benjamin and Abigail Tucker because they are the only family that fit the time period and location for him.  He was unconnected to parents for years.  His 'parents' never appear in TN, so it is assumed he made the journey before 1820, where we first see him in the census records of Maury County, TN (Maury County TN Census, then the 1820 Fed Census).  I have a marriage date to Susan Eagan (to further confuse the issue she is clearly written as "Susan Agree" in the marriage records for Maury County (TN Marriages 1780-2002).  It's also curious that there is no record of the solemnizing of the marriage, just the license.  Were they ever married?  Who can tell.  It's possible that Samuel and Susan were never really married and had 3 children in as many years.  Something happened to cause them to split and Samuel married Elizabeth Duff and had Edwin and Susan. It's also possible that he was married to both (we're talking Tennessee here) :)

The Wilshier children: The 1860 Federal Census shows them living with John and Martha Gray Puffer.  It's unknown if they were adopted or were foster-children.  I've included them as a possible adoption after 1860.
