This page includes genealogical information on my paternal grandmother's (Osie Turner Hatfield) line. I have only included information down to her as the remaining generations are included on the "Home" (Hatfield / Stull) page. The photo to the right is of my great-grandfather, VIRGIL TURNER.

I have had trouble going back any further than ALEXANDER TURNER. Part of the problem is the surname which was very common in VA in this time period. Alexander was a ?wagon wheel maker? by trade (as per the 1850 census records). His son, Arthur (my 2x great-grandfather) was also listed as being in this trade. I have a chair that was made by Arthur. This chair is held together by wooden pegs. No nails are used at all.
Of interest, the surname TURNER means ?one whose works with a lathe?.

My FOX line is a puzzle. My ancestor, NANCY FOX (who married ARTHUR TURNER), is reportedly of Native American descent. Nancy came to present-day WV in a covered wagon with an aunt and uncle. Since her last name was FOX, I had assumed that her name may be of Native American origins. However, it appears that the name FOX came from the German surname FUCHS. Based on this, it appears that her mother was the one of Native American descent and not her father. I have traced the genealogy of her uncle with help with some others who are researching this line. Nancy is a mystery to them also. While her father and mother are unknown, I have been able to determine her grandfather?s line.
GENERATION 1
MATHIAS (SR) FOX He married MARY SPENCER.
Child of MATHIAS FOX and MARY SPENCER is:
i. MATHIAS (II) FOX.
GENERATION 2
MATHIAS (II) FOX married MARGARET "PEGGY" ROUH, daughter of PETER RAUCH. She was born 1781 in Augusta Co., VA, and died May 06, 1863 in Doddridge Co., VA (WV).
Children of MATHIAS FOX and MARGARET ROUH are:
i. MR. FOX.
ii. WILLIAM C. (SR) FOX, m. MARY BURGESS.
iii. SARAH FOX, m. JOHN JORDON.
iv. MARGARET FOX, m. JOHN VANCE.
v. SUSAN FOX, m. ANDREW J. COURTNEY.
vi. ELIZABETH FOX, m. JOSEPH (CLUTTIRE) CLUTTER.
vii. CATHARINE FOX, m. JOHN (DAVID) RUSSELL.
viii. NANCY FOX.
ix. MARY FOX.
x. CHRISTOPHER FOX, b. 1800, Augusta Co., VA.
xi. JOHN FOX, b. 1801, Augusta Co., VA; d. May 11, 1873, Ritchie Co., WV.
xii. GEORGE FOX, b. January 16, 1806, Augusta Co., VA; d. August 04, 1860, Harrison Co., VA (WV); m. ELIZABETH BURGESS, June 09, 1831, Augusta Co., VA.
xiii. DAVID FOX, b. 1808, Augusta Co., VA; m. CATHERINE GABBERT.
xiv. MATHIAS (III) FOX, b. May 15, 1814, Augusta Co., VA; d. April 04, 1904, Odessa, Lafayette Co., MO; m. LYDIA GILLIAN, 1840.
GENERATION 3
MR. FOX is an unidentified son of Matthias Fox (II). Since Nancy Fox traveled to present-day WV with an uncle and aunt, it has not been determined if her father is a known son of Mathias, or another son that is not known.
Child of MR. FOX is:
i. NANCY FOX, b. February 1831, VA; d. 1921, Ritchie Co., WV.
GENERATION 4
NANCY FOX was born February 1831 in VA, and died 1921 in Ritchie Co., WV. She married ARTHUR TURNER October 19, 1865 in Ritchie Co., WV, son of ALEXANDER TURNER. He was born 1825 in Preston Co., VA (WV), and died 1900 in Ritchie Co., WV.
Tradition states that Nancy came from VA to central WV in a covered wagon when she was 13 (~1844). She travelled with an aunt and uncle and is said to be of Native American heritage. She is found in the household of John and Sarah Fox in Doddridge Co., VA (WV) in the 1850 census. In this census, there is a designation in the column used for identifying people of color (black or mulatto). The original mark on the microfilm is unclear, but appears to be an "n" or perhaps an "m". She was the only one in the household with this designation, leading one to suspect that her mother was Native American. She is also shown in the John and Sarah Fox household in the 1860 Ritchie Co census record.
Children of NANCY FOX and ARTHUR TURNER are:
i. VIRGIL W. TURNER, b. 1867; d. 1952; m. LIZZIE BORDER; b. October 26, 1869; d. April 03, 1927.
ii. LINEASY (LOUSISA) J TURNER, b. September 21, 1868; d. August 02, 1927; m. CLARK BUZZARD.
Virgil Turner is shown in the picture on this page. He is my grandmother's father.

The BORDER surname is an interesting example of how original surnames change after several generations of living in America. The name was originally BADER, which is of German origins. The name eventually was spelt BORDER, probably pratially due to illiteracy and spelling of officials based on how the name sounded to them.

The WILLIAMS surname was a difficult one to resarch because it is such a common name. With the help of some distant cousins and old census records, I have traced the line back to Gabriel. Many interesting facts immerged from the other associatied families (HIGGINS and STOUT) which I have also included in this section.
GENERATION 1
GABRIEL WILLIAMS was born 1756, and died November 20, 1827 in Monongalia Co., VA (WV). He married MARGARET LYTTON June 22, 1784.
Gabriel Williams served in "The Flying Camp" in 1776. In 1780 he enlisted in Seventh Maryland Regiment under Captain Mason as a Sgt. He received payment from the Maryland line in 1782 and a pension in Monongalia Co. VA in 1819.
Children of GABRIEL WILLIAMS and MARGARET LYTTON are:
i. CLARK WILLIAMS, b. December 03, 1784.
ii. ABIGAIL WILLIAMS, b. December 10, 1786.
iii. ELIZABETH WILLIAMS, b. September 09, 1788.
iv. RUTH WILLIAMS, b. December 15, 1790.
v. JOHN WILLIAMS, b. December 06, 1792; d. Bef. 1850, Monongalia Co., VA (WV).
vi. GABRIEL (II) WILLIAMS, b. December 21, 1795.

xi. (UNNAMED) WILLIAMS, b. July 08, 1808.
GENERATION 2
JOHN WILLIAMS was born December 06, 1792, and died Bef. 1850 in Monongalia Co., VA (WV). He married ELIZABETH (??). She was born 1796 in VA.
Notes for JOHN WILLIAMS:
John Williams (age 40-50) is suspected to be the father of William Williams based on the fact that he had a son born between 1820 and 1825 living in his household as recorded in the 1840 Monongalia Co census. From William's military records, he was born in Monongalia Co in 1822. There are a few other Williams that are also possible, but John was living near David Higgins, whose daughter, Leah, married William.
John died between 1842 and 1850 as he is not shown in the 1850 census. His widow, Elizabeth, is shown with all her children shown in the 1840 census except William, who had moved to Ritchie Co with his father-in-law, David Higgins. Also, John and Elizabeth had one other child, Michael, who was born after the 1840 census (around 1841).
Children of JOHN WILLIAMS and ELIZABETH (??) are:
i. WILLIAM WILLIAMS, b. June 06, 1822; d. September 21, 1864, Frederick, MD.

vii. ELIZABETH WILLIAMS, b. 1835, VA.

He died in Frederick MD from pneumonia. He acheived a rank of Commisary Sergeant at the time of his death. His enlistment records lists him as having dark complextion, black eyes, and mixed gray hair. He was 5'10" tall and was listed as a farmer.
William died of pneumonia Sept 21, 1864. He was originally buried on Sept 22, 1864 at Area 0 Hospital Cemetary in Frederick MD but was moved to site number 1195, Anteitam National Cemetary. He was buried along side of Conneticut soldiers instead of fellow WV soldiers for some reason.

The STOUT family connects twice to the HIGGINS line. I am including both lines until they converge. The STOUT line is interesting, in particular the story of PENELOPE (VAN PRINCIN) KENT and the connection to ZEBULON PIKE (of Pike?s Peak fame). Zebulon Pike is a great-great grandson of JOHN STOUT.
GENERATION 1
JOHN STOUT married ELIZABETH (GEE) BEE.
Child of JOHN STOUT and ELIZABETH BEE is:
i. RICHARD STOUT, b. 1615, Nottinghamshire, England; d. 1705, Trenton, NJ.
GENERATION 2
RICHARD STOUT was born 1615 in Nottinghamshire, England, and died 1705 in Trenton, NJ. He married PENELOPE (VAN PRINCIN) KENT 1644 in New Amsterdam. She was born 1622 in Amsterdam, Holland, and died 1732 in NJ.
Richard was discharged from the British Navy around 1640 and settled in New Amsterdam. He, along with 38 others, settled Graves End, Long Island, in 1644.
In 1664, an Indian came to warn Richard's wife, Penelope, of a planned attack on Graves End. When the Indians attacked, the forewarned settlers were able to defend themselves. Richard Stout walked into the open and demanded a parley. After the conference, the whites and Indians agreed to a truce and a two day ceremonial to celebrate the treaty. The white settlers agreed to purchase the land and the Indians never attacked again. The date of purchase from the Indians was recorded January 25, 1664.
Will of Richard Stout
Know all men by these presents that I, Richard stout of Middletown in the county of Monmouth, in East Jersey, being of sound mind and disposing memory do make and ordain this to be my last will and testament which is a followeth:
I will that all my just debts be pair; I give and devise unto my loving

I give unto my daughters, Mary , Alice and Sarah, each of them one shilling.
I give to my daughter in law, Mary Stout, and her son John one shilling
each of them.
I give and bequeath unto my kinswoman Mary Stout, the daughter of formerly Peter Stout, one cow, to be paid within six days after my wife's death.
All the remainder of my personal estate whatsoever, I give and bequeath unto my loving wife, and to this, my last will and testament, I make my son John and my son Jonathan my executors to.
For this may will performed, in witness hereof I have hereunto put my hand and seal, June the ninth day, in the year one thousand seven hundred and three.
Richard X Stout
Proved before Lord Cornbury, Governor, Captain General & Etc., 23 October 1705 at Perth Amboy. Recorded in Liber I, p120, of Wills at Trenton, New Jersey.
Penelope's father was said to have been a Puritan Baptist Separatist who was banished by the Church and forced to flee Holland. Penelope married a Van Princin in Amsterdam sometime prior to 1640.
In 1640, Penelope and her husband took ship with a group of immigrants to America. The ship was wrecked off the coast at Sandy Hook, New Jersey. Many of the passengers traveled overland to New Amsterdam, but Penelope remained with her ill/injured husband. They were attacked by Indians who killed Penelope's husband and left her for dead with a fractured skull, a hacked shoulder and a gash in her body that allowed her intestines to protrude. Penelope survived alone for several days until two Indian men came along. The two debated over what to do with her, but they finally agreed to take her back to their village where her wounds were sewed up using fish bone needles and vegatable fibers. Penelope recovered and lived at the village, doing Squaw's work, for about a year. In 1644, a group of white settlers from New Amsterdam, hearing rumors of her survival, visited the village and asked the Indians if Penelope could return with them. The whites finally bought Penelope from the Indians and allowed to leave. Penelope eventually was remarried to Richard Stout. Penelope healed nicely from her wounds as she lived to be 110 years old.
