Generation: 3

  1. 4.  Archibald Newton was born between 1770 and 1775 in St. Mary's County, Maryland; died between 1830 and 1840 in Nelson County, Kentucky.

    Notes:

    Hypothesized by several researchers as a son or grandson of Clement Newton who died in St. Mary's County in 1760 and whose will mentions an unborn child. If Archibald is a son, he must have been the unborn child, thus dating his birth back to 1760 or so. But Archibald might also have been a son, rather than a brother, of Gabriel Newton, son of Clement, who died in Washington DC in 1808.

    Either way, a Gabriel and an Archibald Newton show up on the 1790 census for Montgomery County, Maryland along with a Clement Newton (presumably Clement Jr.), all living next door to each other. Further, Gabriel Newton married a Henrietta who was the widow of Ignatius Wheatley, and of course our Archibald Newton married a Wheatley.

    Archibald married Sarah Wheatley on 20 Sep 1813 in Washington County, Kentucky. Sarah (daughter of John Wheatley and Henrietta) was born about 1774 in St. Mary's County, Maryland. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    6. Uriah H Newton was born in 1817 in Nelson County, Kentucky; died in 1850.

  3. 6.  Jonathan Cheshire was born about 1785 in Maryland (son of John Baptist Cheshire and Sarah); died between 11 Oct 1871 and 1880 in Bullitt County, Kentucky.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate death: Aft 1870, Leaches, Bullitt, Kentucky

    Jonathan married Elizabeth Hollis about 1805. Elizabeth was born about 1786 in Virginia; died in Oct 1869 in Leaches, Bullitt, Kentucky. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  4. 7.  Elizabeth Hollis was born about 1786 in Virginia; died in Oct 1869 in Leaches, Bullitt, Kentucky.

    Notes:

    "On the 1870 Mortality Schedule for Bullitt Co. KY is: Elizabeth Cheshire died October 1869, Bullitt Leaches KY. Died at 84 of dropsy of the heart. b. VA. Right age and place to be Jonathan's wife." [Dupaix, citation details below.]

    No birth record for her has been found. Her maiden name was recorded in Johnson County, Indiana marriage records when her sons John S. and Thomas Cheshire married their fourth wives.

    Children:
    1. 3. Eliza Jane Cheshire was born in 1814 in Bullitt County, Kentucky; died before 1865.


Generation: 4

  1. 10.  John Wheatley was born about 1745 in Charles County, Maryland (son of Francis Wheatley); died before 22 Jan 1827 in Fredericktown, Washington, Kentucky.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: 1746, Charles County, Maryland

    Notes:

    According to Reed-Claggett-Neff, "John sold his plantation in Charles Co, MD in 1790, came to Kentucky in 1793, settled at Fredericktown, Washington Co., KY."

    John married Henrietta. Henrietta was born in 1747 in Maryland. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 11.  Henrietta was born in 1747 in Maryland.

    Notes:

    Her last name is frequently given as Norris, but we can't help but wonder if this isn't due to confusion with the Henrietta Norris recorded in St. Mary's County records as having married a James Wheatley sometime prior to 1755.

    Children:
    1. 5. Sarah Wheatley was born about 1774 in St. Mary's County, Maryland.

  3. 12.  John Baptist Cheshire was born about 1753 in Virginia; died on 10 Aug 1836 in Floyd County, Indiana.

    Notes:

    Fought in the 10th Virginia regiment in 1778-79, during which time it was redesignated the 6th. He appears to have been for a time encamped at Valley Forge, although only after the famously difficult winter of 1777-78.

    Appears in Maryland in the 1790 census, owning no slaves. In Mason County, Kentucky (which was created in 1788) by 1795; in Washington County, Kentucky on the 1800 and 1810 censuses. In the 1820 census he is in Little York, Hardin County, Kentucky. In 1829 he is found in Floyd County, Indiana, applying for a pension.
