Father:William Bernard Sears I (1732 - 27 Apr 1818)
Mother:Elizabeth Young Whaley (1751 - 13 Oct 1823)
     Charles Lee Sears was born on 20 Feb 1776 at Fairfax Co, Virginia. He was the son of William Bernard Sears I and Elizabeth Young Whaley. Charles Lee Sears married Susan Wells a 1803. Charles Lee Sears married Elizabeth "Bettie" Worster a 1812. Charles Lee Sears died in 1862 at Occoquan, Prince William Co, Virginia.
      Charles Lee Sears was the only one of Elizabeth Whaley's children who was included in her father James Whaley's will. Discrepancies over Charles' birth date with two different birth dates are noted -- 8 Feb 1775 and 20 Feb 1776 -- probably indicate a brother Charles Lee Sears was born in 1775 and died soon after; this also provides an explanation for the lack of expected births after 1772 as there was no indication his father was absent to fight in the war.

Charles was licensed with John B. Gorman to run a tavern in Alexandria and Alexandria County on 12 Jun 1821. He opened the Indian Queen Tavern and stable at the northwest corner of King and St Asaph streets in Alexandria, VA which in 1826 was providing entertainment.

Charles was once secretary to Gen John Mason of High Point Plantation, son of George Mason of Gunston Hall; his father William had been an indentured servand to George Mason. He later taught school in an old log building on the site of the Lewis Chapel, the former site of the original Pohick Church. When this school house was abandoned Charles went to teach at "Hard Bargain" on Colchester Road. He lived to be old and was probably buried at Lewis Chapel.

Jacob Remy1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8

M, ID# 1764, (c 1630 - 1721)
Charts:John Satchell Martin * lineage
     Jacob Remy was born c 1630 at France. He immigrated in 1654 to Virginia. He married Mary (Unknown), daughter of Nicholas Spencer I and Frances Wright, in 1671. Jacob Remy died in 1721 at Cople Parish, Westmoreland Co, Virginia. His estate was probated on 5 Dec 1721 at Westmoreland Co, Virginia.
      Jacob Remy arrived in Virginia in 1654 bound to Nicolas Spencer, Esq who was Secretary of the Virginia colony. During his indenture and afterwards Jacob worked as a land surveyor. In 1715 Jacob was deposed in a Westmoreland Co, VA court case which established in 1661 Jacob surveyed land later purchased and lived on by Nicholas Spencer.

Of note a record showed “Fra. Rame to Westmoreland Co., VA, by John Drayton, 1654” which was the year Jacob arrived in America. Whether this person was related to our ancestor was unclear and the meaning of the record is unclear, although this reads as though a headright is being paid to Drayton for bring Rame to Westmoreland County. ("Original Lists of Emigrants," Vol. 1-1600 to 1637; Vol. 2-1662 to 1700, John C. Hotten, 1874, p. 271, Vol. 1)

Jacob became a land owner when he was deeded 200 acres of a tract of 1200 acres in Nominee Forest in Cople Parish, Westmoreland Co, VA on 21 Jul 1671 by William Pierce. Nominee Forest was the wooded land adjacent to Nomini River and its branches. Jacob married Mary in 1671.

According to Westmoreland Co, VA land records, Jacob sold land to Nicholas Spencer, his former master. John Spencer, Nicholas' son, referred to this sale when he resold said land in 1702: "...being part of 200 acres formerly sold by Jacob Remy unto my father Nicholas Spencer, Esq., dec’d, being in Nominy Forest, bounded as follows: a path leading from Jacob Remy’s to Richard Doziers', also French who lived next to the Remy Plantation." By 1702 Jacob had acquired enough land for it to be called a plantation.

Abraham Smith on 27 Sep 1721 deeded John Ramey II fifty acres known by the name Beatles Neck, being part of a deed of 200 acres of land bought from Jacob Ramey I by Nicholas Spencer and afterward sold to John Spencer.

Jacob was naturalized on 20 Sep 1680 in James City, VA wherein the record stated he was a French citizen by birth. The only primary records this researcher found proving Jacob's information were his immigration, naturalization, land records and will, none of which address his lineage. Family documents reprinted by Yates Publishing, Edmund West and Heritage (Millennium); membership applications and find a grave biographies are one family's account or repetition of a possible lineage and provide no proof. A helpful missing link would be if a bible record was found for Jacob establishing who his parents were. Sans that, there are too many European Pierre and Jacob Remys to establish a firmly rooted Remy tree for our line at this time, although there were many Remys in Marne, France.

An account of Jacob's naturalization and his descendants is included in "Coweta County (Georgia) Chronicles for 100 Years with an Account of the Indians from Whom the Land was Acquired and Some Historical Papers Relating to the Acquisiton" by Georgia with Lineage Pages, Mary G. Jones, Atlanta, GA Stein Print Company, 1928, pg 710, but this book focuses on his son William's line which is not ours.

Jacob, born about 1630, was erroneously thought to be Jacques Remy born a generation later about 1655 in the area of Bonnet, France. As recounted many times in my research, the mid-twentieth century hobby of aligning American genealogies to illustrious European lineages did a large disservice to American families seeking knowledge about their ancestry and thus setting back valid research by probably a century for those lines affected. A 1942 book on the Remy family connected Jacob incorrectly to an illustrious Remy family line of Ivoy, Lorraine, France, although Jacob was a much older man who came to America as an indentured servant. The majority of online unproven American family trees and even the Find A Grave report derive from this 1942 document and from each other.

Information generally recounted online concerning our Jacob's birth, marriage and progenitors is incorrect. Nevertheless, included herein is the erroneous story of our ancestor's purported ancestry based on the 1942 book for the purpose of showing what was NOT part of our lineage. According to "The Remy Family in America 1650-1942" (Bonnelle William Rhamy, Fort Wayne, Indiana, 1942, https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/101874923), Jacob Remey was an educated man of noble descent and a French Huguenot like his wife Francoise Haldat's family. During Jacob's childhood and after his marriage, he experienced severe religious persecution by the Catholic government of France. Because this persecution was life threatening, Jacob and his wife were forced to flee from France, first going where his uncle Jacques Remy lived in Greenhausen, Germany and then to England. From England, they tried to find a way to America where religious freedom was assured. Because they left all their worldly goods in France and could not afford passage to America, Jacob and his wife Francoise took a ship in 1654 to America under the indenture system; she did not survive the trip. This fiction about our ancestor is continuously reported online, despite the book providing no sources.

So who was the real Jacques Remy who married Francoise Haldat? French historian Philippe Cousin researched French records which showed online documented family trees with Jacques Remy (1655-1685) and Louise Francoise Haldat du Lys (1660-1699) who lived and died in France, never coming to America. Jacques and Francoise married in 1673 and had children named Claude born 1674, Jene born 1676, Estienne (1679-1680) Marie (1680-1748) who married Nicolas Gallois in 1702, and Magdelaine born 1683. That timeline does not work for our ancestor Jacob Remy who was documented in America in 1654 as an indentured servant. French online trees for this family are sourced to records in the French National Archives where this researcher found the death record for Jacques Remy on 19 Jan 1685 in Bonnet, France (Décès: Archives Dép. de la Meuse - Bonnet 1685-1697 E Dépôt 43; 1 E 4). The French trees noted the Remy - Haldat marriage record is also in that repository (Union: Archives Dép. de la Meuse - Bonnet 1659-1680 E Dépôt 43; 1 E 1).

     Silas Woodworth I was born on 1 May 1843 at New Germany, Lunenburg Co, Nova Scotia, Canada. He was the son of George Andrew Woodworth and Mary MacNayr. Silas Woodworth I married Bridget Fleming, daughter of James Fleming and Barbara Mehlman, c 1862. Silas Woodworth I died on 25 Jan 1868 at New Germany, Lunenburg Co, Nova Scotia, at age 24.
      Silas Woodworth and Bridget Fleming were proven by DNA results to be the parents of Titus Woodworth and Silas Woodworth II. Using an Ancestry.com test and a My Heritage test the relationship was confirmed by a My Heritage match between Richard Murphy and Suzanne C. Woodworth Roberts his second cousin once removed respectively. Their most recent common ancestors are Silas Woodard I and Bridget Fleming, the second great grandparents of Richard Murphy and the great grandparents of his cousin Suzanne C. Woodworth. Their predicted relationship from My Heritage is between 1st cousin twice removed to 2nd cousin twice removed, based on sharing 115.4 cM across 6 segments with the largest segment being 28 cM.

That Milledge, Titus and Silas were living as babies with families other than their birth family was partially explained by the death of their father Silas senior at age 25 from typhoid fever. However, their father's cemetery marker was shared with his brother Duncan Woodworth who died at the same age two years later, and there was no indication of what happened to their mother Bridget Fleming Woodworth. A Bridget Woodworth died 8 Jan 1888 and was buried in the Pine Grove Cememtery, Middleton, Annapolis Co, Nova Scotia, but this may be a different woman because there was no sign of Bridget after her children were apportioned out among various families by 1871.

      Silas Woodworth was living at age four in 1871 with William Simpson age 48, his presumed wife Elizabeth age 44 and their eight children ranging in age from 5 to 21 in New Germany, Lunenburg Co, Nova Scotia. All of the household were noted as Weslyan Methodists born in Nova Scotia of French origins. Silas likely went to live with another family when his father died right after he was born. If Silas was related to the Simpsons is unknown although Silas' great aunt Elizabeth Woodworth was married to a John Simpson. Key was that Silas' aunt Ruth Fleming Demone, the 23-year-old sister of Silas' mother Bridget Fleming, was living just three doors away from the William Simpson household with a six month old and a one year old of her own.

A few doors away in 1871 were the families of Nelson and David Simpson, ages 38 and 34, and the family of David Mailman age 51, a Lutheran born in Nova Scotia of German origins. Silas later married David Mailman's daughter.

By 1881 Silas was residing in Lunenberg Co, Nova Scotia with his uncle William H. Woodworth, a farmer age 47, and his extended family which included his wife Lavinia; their four children ranging from age 1 to 13; William's father George Woodworth, age 72; and Silas, who was now age 13. The entire family was noted as Baptists of English origins. Silas was the nephew of William and the grandson of George.

By 1891 Silas was married and boarding with his wife Lesetha in the household of David Mailman, age 72, in Lunenburg, surrounded by other Mailman families. Mailman was also noted in the records as Mehlman. Nearby was the family of William Woodworth, age 32.

Samuel Martin1

M, ID# 1768, (a 1819 - )
Father:PVT Thomas Littleton Martin I (12 May 1791 - 6 May 1835)
Mother:Harriet Lanphier (13 Mar 1795 - 6 Nov 1885)
     Samuel Martin was born a 1819. He was the son of PVT Thomas Littleton Martin I and Harriet Lanphier.
      The only evidence of Samuel Martin being a child in this family came from a family tree in a notebook that belonged to William James Perry. All the other data he recorded about Thomas Littleton Martin's children in the notebook was correct, however he also did not record the births of two of his uncles -- Thomas Littleton Martin II and James Parmer Martin -- ironically the namesake descendants of two of the progenitors from the Eastern Shore.
