Millington Easley – (and then clicking) WorldConnect Project


This article is divided into 4 parts.   On the Internet they were not all one long item, but by clicking on the name of the child, who was our ancestor, at the end of each succeeding “part” we were able to open up the next “part” for the child of interest to us.  Therefore, this presentation now appears as one long document.  Also note that this is from the research of others, and contains some obvious errors, but it also contains very much valuable and credible information.  Not wanting to make any changes to someone else’s work, this is being presented as is, and without any edits on my part at this time.               Lionel Nebeker

  ID: I0030

  Name: Millington Easley

  Sex: M

  Birth: BEF 1746 in probably Goochland County, Virginia

  Death: BEF JUN 1803 in Greenville County, South Carolina

  Note:

Millington Easley, b. before 1746 (probably before 1739), probably in Goochland Co., VA--d.c. 1803, Greenville Co., SC. He received in his father's will, 1746, Goochland Co., VA, 400 acres in Albemarle Co., VA. He probably lived later for some time in Buckingham Co., VA, where many records have been destroyed.

ERROR CORRECTION:

According to A.E. Casey, History of Amite Co., Miss., this Millington Easley was a soldier in the American Revolution, serving with Benjamin Roebuck's Regt. in SC at Mud Lick and King's Mountain, etc. However, that was his nephew Millington Easley, the son of John and Ann (Gowen) Easley, who is proven by S.C. indents to have been a Revolutionary soldier and who died unmarried and childless by 1786.

This elder Millington, the uncle, remained in Granville Co., NC, until after the end of the Revolution.

Unfortunately, the error was continued and compounded in a more recent reference work:

[This is the State Census of Granville Co. for 1786--the introductory statement indicates that Country Line District and Nutbush District were omitted from the 1788 Tax Lists published as the "1790 Census" by the federal government.]

Names included 1786 in Country Line District, Granville Co., NC, were Joseph Hart, Chandler, and Yancey.

Millington Easley is not listed.


Thus it seems clear that this Millington Easley with his wife Elizabeth and his family moved c. 1785/86 to Greenville Co., SC, where he is listed in the 1790 and 1800 U.S. Censuses.

Dear Virginia,

I see that you have done extensive research on the Easleys. I am just starting to look at this family for my daughter-in-law. She is descended from Pleasant Easley and Louisa Sinclair. My question is that you have him as having died in Il in 1864, but I found Pleasant, Louisa, and their children on the 1870 census for Missouri, and I was wondering if you could clarify why there is a discrepancy. I appreciate any information you have, as I see that you have a lot of great documentation on this family. Thanks, Betty
