Corrections to Jeptha Austill Line in Alabama
Posted by: Timothy Austill (ID *****6169) Date: June 08, 2005 at 11:14:04
In Reply to: West Tennessee / Northern Alabama Austill Ancestry by Timothy Austill of 47

Some corrections to my last message:

Correction # 1: Jeptha Austill's father has been proven not to be Zacheriah, and there is some good evidence that says that his father is Richard.

Correction # 2: Isaac's father information

Correction # 3: For Generation # 13 - William Austill was not born in 1673. This is an error.


The Austill's that live in West Tennessee now have finally found their ancestors, who are from northern Alabama, before that North Carolina, before that Virginia, before that Pennsylvania, and before that Cornwall, England. This is a very brief family tree (from memory only). For those interested in evidence, please email or (prefer you to use both):

1. Hunter Glenn Austill (my 2 year old son) b. 2002 Shelby Co. TN
2. Timothy Wayne Austill (myself) b. 1965 Tipton Co. TN
3. Bobby Wayne Austill (my father) b.1944 Tipton Co. TN
4. Allen Warren Austill (grandfather) b.1914 in Tipton Co. TN
5. Robert Leslie Austill (g-grandfather) b.1888 in Limestone Co., Elkmont, Ala
6. James Robert Austill (g-g-grandfather) b.1866 in Jackson Co., Ala (We are descendants from his first marriage to Susie Sarah Watkins. James Robert married a second time to Anna Belle Money and moved to Texas).
7. Jeptha Columbus Austill (g-g-g-grandfather) b.1833 in Jackson Co., Ala
8. Richard and Henrietta Austill (g-g-g-g-grandfather and g-g-g-g-grandmother) Richard born ~1805 believed to be born in Surry County (Yadkin) N.C.
9. Malin (Maryland, Merryland, Malone,or Malon) Austill (5grandfather) b. around 1765 either in Surry County (Yadkin) N.C. or Halifax Co. Va
10. Isaac Austill (6grandfather) b. before 1730 (lived in Halifax Co. Va prior to living in Surry Co. (Yadkin) NC

Below this is theoretical:

There is a Joseph Austell, who married Elizabeth Engersol, in Boston, on Jan 19 1721, who is likely the son of Joseph and Sarah Austill (#12). This Joseph had a brother named Isaac Austell. If this Isaac is the same as Isaac (#10), then skip (#11). However, the age difference seems to be a problem and it has been hypothesized that Isaac's father was William since he lived in Surry County, NC.

11. William Austill, Sr (7grandfather)b.1699 (son of Joseph and Sarah) and brother of Joseph. This William is most likely the same William that lived in Surry County, NC.)
12. Joseph and Sarah Austill (8grandfather and 8grandmother) Joseph b.1672 d. ~ 1703 after immigrating to Pennsylvania from England)
13. William Austill Jr. and Mary Gibbons (9grandfather and 9grandmother) William married 1671 in England
14. William Austell Sr. and Dorothy (10grandfather and 10grandmother) William sr. b. probably before 1660, but married 1673 and died 1679 in England.

Below this, there is no theoretical connections:

Thomas Austell, buried in Exeter Cathedral in England in 1509

William De Austell, sheriff of Cornwall and Commoner under Edward III and Henry qr in St. Austell, Cornwall, England.
