Re: Stafford Co., Va Foxworthy Family - 1700

In Reply to: Stafford Co., Va Foxworthy Family - 1700 by Aaron Foxworthy of 127

I am a descendant of John F. Foxworthy (born in Stafford Co., VA, who married Sarah Northcutt on 29 Sep 1751), via this lineage: John F., William, Alexander, Daniel and my father, Hardie Ray. (Dad always signed his name Hardie, even though records indicate Hardy.)

I have some Foxworthy information which I'm willing to share:

1) A fairly complete listing of the descendants of my grandfather Daniel Glascock Foxworthy.

2) Correspondence in 1967 and 1968 regarding the sale of a longhouse named "Foxworthy" in Windecombe-in-the-Moor, UK. An advertisement of this house in the magazine Country Life, prompted me to write the realtor, Waycott's in Torquay, who graciously sent me pictures of the house and the address of a previous owner, a Mrs. Gates. She wrote from Foxworthy Farm, Ponds Gate, Newton(?)Abbot, S. Devon, giving me some very interesting details about the longhouse.

3) Evidence of legal proceedings in 1765-1768 regarding a Samuel Foxworthy who leased his ship named "Mahone" in 1755 to Jonathan Sydenham and Thomas Hodgson for a seven months voyage from England to America and return. The ship left Maryland with a load of tobacco, iron and staves, but encountered a storm causing it to go aground in Plymouth harbor in early February 1756.

4) A typed copy of the letter documenting the enlistment, service dates, and pension approval for William Foxworthy who was in the battles of Jamestown and the siege of Yorktown. The letter of no date was sent to Mrs. Alice F. Glascock from G. Saltzberger, Commissioner, Department of the Interior, Bureau of Pensions, Revolutionary War Records Section.

5) A typed copy of the will of William Foxworthy, 1753-1837, Fleming County, Kentucky, Record, which he had signed with an "X".

Please let me know if you are interested in any of these materials, identifying them by the number(s) 1 through 5, as above. I will ask you to be patient, as I don't have a lot of time to devote to copying etc. I have not prepared them as electronic documents, but could if there are several requests and the recipients could receive them as MS Word or MS PowerPoint files, MS Office97 format.

Sincerely, Marj Turbyfill
