Email received 12/27/2004:
Sandra,

Hope you are having a great holiday season, as for us we had a great one.
I was going back over the email I received this year and thought that may be I could come up with another lead for you since I do not have any more in my data base on this family.
In the Book: Covingtons - Remembered; from Gravestones, Wills, Deeds and Other Records; by: de Costa Euclid Covington p.492 is a Deed dated 29 Oct 1805, from James Nettles to Thomas Covington, Sr. Witness by Frederick Beall, J.P., H. Terrell, James Hardcastle. Recorded Aug 11, 1807. This is probably in Franklin County, GA. P.196 shows 5 Jun 1837 Hester Ann Covington to Marcus Hardcastle. Probably in Maryland or Deleware. Possibly in Somerset County, MD.
This is all that I have been able to come up with and I am sure that you already had this information but thought that I would share what I had.
Thanks and Have a Bless Day!
Mike

Letter to Mike Blewett (5/15/2004):
I saw your database on Gencircles and was hoping we might make contact. My ancestor was Melinda "Milly" Covington who married James Hardcastle on March 29 1798 in Rutherford Co NC. She was born in Rutherford Co NC. He was born 1777/1778 in Rutherford Co NC. His father was Elisha Hardcastle born 1748/1752 in Johnson Co NC or Glouchester, VA. Some of their relatives went to Warren Co KY. His parents were William Hardcastle and Mary Willoughby.

Elisha Hardcastle Morgan, Rutherford, NC 1800 Census

Elisha's Brother:
James Hardcastle Not Stated, Johnston, NC 1790
James Hardcastle Morgan, Rutherford, NC 1800
James Hardcastle Not Stated, Johnston, NC 1810
James Hardcastle Not Stated,Warren, KY 1820
JAMES HARDCASTLE NC Johnston County NC Early Tax List 1784

This is the marriage record for James and Milly (The last name was spelled incorrectly):
North Carolina Marriage Bonds, 1741-1868
Bride: Milly Cufonton (should be Covington)
Groom: James Hardcastle
Bond Date: 29 Mar 1798
County: Rutherford
Record #: 01 127
Bondsman: Thos Cufonton (Should be Covington)
Witness: Jno Barber
Bond #: 000133933

Do you think Milly could be the daughter of Benjamin H. Covington? Do you know if they were ever in Rutherford Co? I see he had a son named Thomas and a daughter named Milly. And I see that Benjamin died in Warren Co KY. There are several coincidences here.

Thanks for you help,
Sandra

Nicholas Devore - Private in Gen. Swearengen's Company, Morgan's Ridge Regiment Continental TR. Born 1732 in France. Married Sarah Dicker. Died 1815. Red Oak, OH.

N. S. Devore, crockery and queensware, Ripley. The name Devore (Devara) is of French origin. The ancestors of the family who emigrated to America settled in Pennsylvania. Nicholas Devore, the great grandparent of our subject, was a soldier in the Revolutionary War, and served under Washington from the first. His wife's maiden name was Sarah Decker, whose family also rank in Revolutionary fame; he moved to the West in 1787, and was among the pilgrims who entered Kenton Station, near Maysville, KY. Subsequently, he moved and settled at Blue Lick Fort among the Indians, where he died in 1813. David Devore, the grandparent of our subject came to the territory of Brown County in 1800, and settled at Red Oak, where he passed his life. He was among the most intelligent and progressive, as well as active farmers of the day and acquired a handsome estate through is own industry and perseverance; he lived to raise a family of ten children, six sons and four daughters, four of whom are living; his death is recorded in 1860. N. S. Devore, whose name appears at the head of this sketch, is the oldest living son of David and Esther (West) Devore, and was born in this county in 1846. David was born in Brown County in 1806, and is the oldest living son. A portion of his early life was spent on the farm, and until 1850, at which time the national bank system was inaugurated, and he became one of the original stockholders of the First National Bank of Ripley, in which he had always taken an active interest, until his health failed, and in declining years he transferred its duties to his son, N. S., who has since filled that position. Mr. Devore has been an invalid for several years, and most of the time confined to his home, surrounded by the comforts and care of his family. His wife's father, William West, settled in Brown County in 1804, and erected the first house in Decatur, Byrd Township, where he resided until his death. Of the twelve children born to this generation, four are living. N. S. Devore established himself in the grocery business in this city in 1868, which he pursued until he opened his present business in crockery and queensware in 1879, it being the only china bazaar in the city. He deals considerably in real estate and brokerage, and is considered one of the active and enterprising men of the city. He is a Director of the First National Bank, and is well and favorably known. He was married, April 18, 1877, to Miss Eva M., daughter of Rev. C. W. Garoutte, an official and publisher at Dayton, Ohio. Their children are Earl G., Fred F. and Alma.

Ohio Biographical Sketches, 1876
Name: David G. Devore
Lawyer, was born in Union township, Brown county, Ohio, March 31st, 1808, and was the seventh child in a family consisting of ten children whose parents were David Devore and Alice (Mann) Devore. His father, a native of Washington county, Pennsylvania, followed through life agricultural pursuits. He moved to Kentucky at an carly date, and settled at Kenton's Station. In 1800 he removed to Union township, Brown county, Ohio, where he resided until his demise. Many of his ancestors were active participants in the Revolutionary struggle, notably, Nicholas Devore, his paternal grandfather, who was one of the famous Morgan Riflemen and an actor during Crawford's defeat. His mother was a native of New Jersey, and a daughter of Christopher Mann, a prominent pioneer of Kentucky and Brown county, Ohio. Until his nineteenth year was attained he worked on a farm at the old homestead, on Red Oak creek, Union township, Brown county. During those years he received a liberal education in various select schools, and in 1827 entered the Ohio University, at Athens. There he diligently pursued a course of classical studies, and in 1831 graduated with the first honor of his class. He then returned to Brown county and began the reading of law under the supervision of Archibald Liggett, a prominent attorney of Ripley, Ohio. After continuing his studies with this preceptor for about six months he moved to Georgetown, where he resumed his reading under the guidance of Thomas L. Hamer, an able pioneer attorney of Brown county. In 1833 he passed the required examination and was admitted to the bar. Hon. Thomas Corwin was on that occasion one of the examiners. Entering at once on the active practice of his profession, in partnership with Thomas L. Hamer, at Georgetown, he, in conjunction with his associate, rapidly secured an extensive legal practice. In 1833 he was elected Prosecuting Attorney of Brown County, and in this position served faithfully for two years. Of late years, in connection with his professional duties, he has also interested himself in agricultural pursuits and general speculations. Politically, he is a supporter of the Democratic party, and cast his first vote in favor of General Jackson. Religiously, he is a member of the Christian Union organization. He has always been a firm friend of the temperance cause, and has never connected himself with any secret societies. He was married in 1837 to Rebecca Murray, a native of Morgan county, Ohio, and the daughter of an early pioneer of that county. Eight children have been the products of this union.

Subject: [OhBrown] debtors to Nicholas Devore estate c 1829

Nicholas Devore died early in 1829 in Union Twp, Brown Co OH. His probate
began about 20 April 1829, when his widow Sarah (who would die before his
estate was settled), relinquished her administration.

For those looking for ancestors in Brown Co OH c 1829 and a few years
before, the list of people who owed Nicholas money might be helpful. Many
of these individuals are not related to Nicholas Devore in any way that I
know about. One involves a court case against his relative Abner Devore
that would bear more research. Two debts were called "desperate" by the
estate administrators, David Devore and Jonas Mann. These were made out to
Thomas Hull and Jas Kerchivill. Others were listed along with the interest
they currently bore. Because only two were listed as uncollectable, it appears these other
individuals were in Brown Co OH c 1829.

An account of notes and moneys on hand on 10 July 1829 bt David Devore and
Jonas Mann:
The following debtors owed varying amounts of money to Nicholas Devore,
from$10 to 80.50. They included William Glase, Peter Bishop, Basel Glaze,
Jacob Jolly, David Hanstabl(?), John Sreave, William McKinny, Joseph Jones,
Sam Fitch, Samuel Pickeral(?), John Shreve, Stout Drake, Enoch Drake,
Samuel Glase, William Fisher, George Crossley, John Lafaber, James Morrow,
John Glase, Benjamin Devore, Dunnies(?) Pickerl, John Sreave, Basel
McKelfrish(?), Michael Zellers, James Alexander, John Mann, Ben Devore,
Thomas Hull, Jas Kerchivill, and "on a judgment on James Moores Docket
against Abner Devore."

Of these, Jacob Jolly was likely related to Elizabeth Jolly, who married
Nicholas's grandson or step-grandson, Nicholas Sherry, a son of Daniel
Sherry and Nancy Devore;
the Drakes were likely related to Samuel Drake, who married
Nicholas's great granddaughter, Mary Miller, a daughter of James Miller
and Sarah Sherry;
Benjamin Devore may have been his son Benjamin;
Abner Devore may have been his son Abner;
John Mann was married to Abigail Devore.

Nicholas Devore has been said to be a weaver of coverlets. His estate
contained a number of coverlets but no looms or large quantities of
yarn. He appears to have been almost 100 years of age at his death, if I
have the correct birth information of 1731-32 France or Germany.

I don't have proof, what I have in my records came from other researchers, LDS,DAR etc. Christopher's siblings were: John Mann Nancy Mann (1760-70 NJ- after 1841 Putnam Co IN)m. Jeremiah Devore. Elizabeth Mann Peter Mann (abt 1765- 1833 w.p.Bracken Co KY)m. #1 Mary "Polly" Threlkeld 1786, m. #2Elizabeth Geteral/Gattrell 25 Jan 1804 Bracken Co KY. Maybe also Henry Mann, and Jonas Mann. Jonas Mann married Agnes Williams, and from the HISTORY OF JACKSON CO MO moved from VA to KY in 1776. Jonas had a son Christopher born 1774 who married Betsy Rusk 8 Feb 1816 in Adams Co OH. The DAR has George Mann & Elizabeth Palmer as Christopher's parents, however they have their data confused with George Adam Mann (16 Mar 1734 VA or PA- 4 May 1821 Greene Co OH)and wife Elizabeth Hermann. George Adam Mann was a son of George Barnet Man/Mohn of Baden Wurttemburg Germany and his wife Anna Margaret Geisser. At this point I doubt that George Mann & Elizabeth Palmer existed as I can find no record of them.
