John Mason and Elizabeth Gee
Posted by: Carolyn Anderson (ID *****6027) Date: February 27, 2012 at 10:30:31

I've seen some postings that show John Mason, son of John Mason and Elizbeth Briggs Chappell, married Elizabeth Gee and resided in Campbell Co. VA. Since this isn't correct and is throwing off some Mason Researchers, I'll post the correct descent of this John Mason below:

John Mason was born 17 April 1741 to John Mason and Elizabeth Chappell. This John did marry Elizabeth Gee 09 Jun 1760. However, they had no living children and Elizabeth died before 27 Sep 1764 when John married secondly Jane Parham Thweatt, widow of William Threatt. John Mason lived out his life in Sussex Co. VA. This is his Will and please note that Henry Gee was living with them.

John Mason, Sr. 2-11-1802 10-7-1802 Wife Jane Mason use of my land and the College lease for life. Nephew Seth Mason the land I bought from Robert Roe. Rebeckah Mabry the land I bought from Capt. John Rogers adjoining Maj Robert Mabry. George Mason, son of James Mason, decd. Kinsman Henry Gee who lives with me the land I bought from John Meacham. Sally Felts. Grandson Henry Mason (under 21) the land I bought from Willie Jones and Walter Jones in Surry. Grson William Wyche (under 21) the 417 1/2 acres I bought from the Cockes on Josephs Swamp. Dau Elizabeth Wyche all my land in Brunswick Co. and the land on Otterdam Swamp that I bought from Dr. William Tazewell. Son in law Benjamin Wyche. Grandchildren viz George Mason, Lucy Mason, John Mason, Nathaniel Mason, Frances Mason Wyche and Elizabeth Jane Wyche. Son John Raines Mason. Deed for 1/2 of the mill in the hands of William Harrison. Exors: John R. Mason and son in law Benjamin Wyche. Wit William Harrison, Richard Christian and Lewis Parham.

Then Jane Parham Threatt Mason's will:

Jane Mason, widow of John Mason...11-4-1803 3-2-1804 Son John Raines Mason. Dau Elizabeth Wyche and my grdaus Frances Burwell Mason Wyche and Eliza Jane Wyche. Grson George Mason. Grson Henry Mason. Grson Benjamin Harrison Mason. Rebecca Thweat Mason, daughter of Seth Mason and Jane Mason. Grdau Jane Mason, daughter of Rebecca T. Mason. Niece Jane Parham who now lives with me. Daus Rebecca Mabry and Elizabeth Wyche. Exor: son in law Benjamin Wyche. Wit: Robert Downman, Sally Hunt, Ephraim Gee and Jesse Barker.

To further clarify above, Jane Parham and William Threatt were parents of Rebecca Threatt christened 10 Feb 1759 that married James Mason, also a son of John Mason and Elizabeth Chappell. James Mason's first wife was Elizabeth "Betty" Harrison and they were parents of two sons Edmunds and John Mason. James Mason and Rebecca Threatt were married 16 Oct 1777 Sussex Co. VA. They were the parents of Jane Mason and George Mason. Jane Mason married Seth Mason, son of William Mason and Lucretia Ann Mason. Also, James Mason died 1784 and Rebecca Threatt Mason married ssecondly Robert Mabry July 1787.

I hope the above will help those researching the John Mason and Elizabeth Gee line and will clarify they did not reside over in Campbell Co. VA.
