FIRST GENERATION

 

1.  John Toliver was born about 1725. probably in Virginia. 

    His given name is subject to debate, but it is likely that his name was either John
    or William, since those are the only two Toliver males who appear on tax lists of the
    correct time period.  There is circumstantial evidence supporting both names. 

    Jesse Toliver's pension application file includes a Bible page which suggests that his
    father's name was John Toliver - the name written at the top of the page.  A land
    entry in Wilkes Co. dated June 3, 1778 (Entry #159) states that Jesse Tolover entered
    300 acres on Mulberry waters on both sides of road leading from John Robbins, Sr. over
    to Roaring River Settlement, "being improvement John Tolover, Sr. now lives on."  This
    implies that there was indeed a senior John Toliver in Wilkes Co. who may have been
    Jesse's father. 

    Following the Battle of King's Mountain in 1780, the Toliver brothers, their mother
    (who is not named) and other family members moved west of the Blue Ridge to the part
    of Wilkes that later became Ashe and still later Alleghany County.  There was no
    mention of the father.  If William Toliver (1730-1774) was the father, his death in
    1774 fits the absence of the father in 1780.  Also, there is a William Toliver on tax
    lists in Surry County (Wilkes was formed from Surry in 1777)  in 1771 and 1772.  Of
    course, to "muddy the waters" a bit, there is also a Dr. John Taliaferro there during
    the same years.

    Nell Watson Sherman's book, Taliaferro-Toliver Family Records, lists him as Charles
    Toliver, the son of Charles Taliaferro and Ann Kemp, with siblings Moses, Jesse,
    John, and William.  However, her account has generally been discredited.  Charles
    Taliaferro's book, The Taliaferro Family - Three Centuries in America lists Mildred
    and Kemp as the children of Charles and Ann.  Velma T. Parmerton reports that Charles
    Taliaferro's Essex County will is quite explicit - the only children were Mildred,
    Kemp, and Sarah. Also, Charles died in 1721, too early to have fathered any of the
    "brothers".

    The Family Tree DNA Project lists him as William Toliver, Sr.  DNA from the descendants
    of Jesse, Charles, William, and Moses Toliver shows that these men were either brothers
    or cousins through the male line. Their genetic "markers" indicate that their common
    male ancestor was European.  DNA from descendants of John Toliver did not match the
    others and may be Mediterranean/Spanish in origin.  Because the more traditional
    genealogical evidence (censuses, land records, etc.) indicates there was a connection
    between John Toliver and the other brothers, it is possible that he was their cousin
    on the maternal side or that there could be a "break" in the male line somewhere
    between John Toliver and the descendant whose DNA was tested, such as an adoption,
    step-child, or out-of-wedlock birth.  Revolutionary War pension application affidavits
    state that John, Moses, and Jesse were brothers.

    The DNA obtained from the Toliver descendants does NOT match the DNA obtained from

    Robert Taliaferro's known descendants.  This shows that the Tolivers of North Carolina

    are NOT descendants of Robert Taliaferro, at least not in the direct male line.  They

    could be descendants of a Taliaferro female who had a child born out of wedlock or

    descendants of an unrelated family who adopted the Taliaferro/Toliver name, but this

    is entirely speculative.

   

    He immigrated about 1815 to Lawrence County, IN.  His son Charles brought his family

    from Ashe County, NC to Lawrence County, IN, in 1815.  He probably came at the same

    time.

   

    He died on June 24, 1821.  John was buried at Freedom Cemetery in Marion Township,

    Lawrence County, IN. according to some researchers.  This has not been proven.

    postings on Ancestry.com list her as Elizabeth Symes.  However, no supporting

    evidence is given. She died Unknown.

    158).  On October 27, 1782, he and wife Elizabeth conveyed the 100 acres to

    Abraham Edins (deed book A1, page 234).  They appear to have moved to the south

    Moses and his family reportedly left for Indiana in 1815, probably with his

    brother Charles.  He is believed to have died en route to Indiana.

 

    Moses Toliver and Elizabeth [Unknown] were married Unknown. Elizabeth [Unknown]

    was born about 1755.  Some postings on Ancestry.com list her surname as Stamper

    or Connelly.  However, no supporting evidence is given. She died Unknown.  Moses

    Toliver and Elizabeth [Unknown] had the following child:

 

    12  i.  John Toliver, born April 20, 1780.

 

4.  Jesse Toliver was born in 1756 in Fauquier County, VA.

 

    He served in the military in The American Revolutionary War. An abstract of

    Revolutionary War pension files lists "Toliver, Jesse, NC Line, widow Frankey or

    Franky, W4086, soldier was born in Fauquier Co. VA & when young he moved with

    his father (not named) to near Richmond VA & later moved to Wilkes Co. NC where

    Jesse Toliver and Martha Frances "Franky" Stamper were married in April, 1782 in

    Wilkes County, NC. Martha Frances "Franky" Stamper was born on February 14, 1767.

    She died between 1850 and 1860.

 

5.  John Toliver was born about 1760 in North Carolina.
 

    He appeared in the census in 1790 in Wilkes County, NC. He appeared in the census

    appeared in the census in 1860 in Alleghany County, NC. It lists John (100)
    living with his son Charles.
   

    John and Jesse were born on the Rappahanock River in Prince William County, VA,

    although by the time John was born, the area had become Fauquier County.  Shortly

    afterward, the family moved to the James River area about 30 miles from Richmond.

    Information in John's and Jesse's military pension files indicate that they and

    their brother Moses came to NC with their father before the Revolutionary War began.

    Further, about five or six years before the Revolutionary War began (about 1770),

    the family moved to Surry (later Wilkes) County, NC, east of the Blue Ridge

    Mountains.  The father was still living and was involved in this move, but he is

    not named in any of Jesse's or John's pension records.

 

    Land records show Tollivers buying extensively along the Roaring River, Mulberry

    Creek, and the Yadkin River between 1778 and 1781.  Following the Battle of King's

    Mountain in 1780, the Toliver brothers, their mother (who is not named) and other

    family members moved west of the Blue Ridge to the part of Wilkes that later became

    Ashe and still later Alleghany County. 

    In a letter written in 1930 by E. W. Morgan, representing the National Archives,
    to Mrs. Fred Cretney in Leadville, CO, he stated "You are advised that it appears
    from the Revolutionary War records of this bureau that John Toliver, while residing
    in Wilkes County, North Carolina, enlisted in the latter part of the war and served
    fourteen days 'and upwards', as a private in Captain Martin Gambill's company in
    Colonel Benjamin Cleveland's North Carolina regiment.  He was allowed bounty land
    in full satisfaction for the service rendered, on his application executed June 17,
    1856, at which time he was living in Ashe County, North Carolina and was aged ninety-
    four or ninety-six years.  In 1856, Charles H. Toliver and Jesse Toliver testified
    in the case.  They were both at that time residing in Ashe County, North Carolina. 
    No relationship to soldier stated."  This was Bounty Land Warrant 67685 for 160
    acres.  Most warrants given to NC men were in TN.  Charles H. Toliver was John's
    son.  Jesse Toliver was the son of John's sister, Susanna and Allen Tolliver.
    He was married to John's granddaughter, Louisa, William's daughter.

    In the DAR Patriot Lookup, John Toliver is listed as John Taliaferro b. 1760.  He
    was a Private.  He died in 1863 in NC.  No one received a pension.  His spouse was
    Tabitha Howell.  The SAR list him as John Toliver, Private.

    National Archives W5012 - In a deposition for the widow of Samuel Johnson on Sept.
    20, 1856 in Ashe Co., NC, John Toliver, swore before Justice of the Peace, James
    Gambill, that he had lived in the county of Wilkes in NC at the time of the War of
    the Revolution; that Samuel Johnson had been a Captain in the war and that he had
    known Samuel's father, Jeffrey.  He also knew Mary Hammons and believed Samuel and
    Mary were married after the Battle of King's Mountain, SC (Oct. 7, 1780) and
    before he moved with his mother to the west side of the Blue Ridge, now Ashe
    County.  He also stated that "his two older brothers Jesse Toliver and Moses"
    lived on the west side of the Blue Ridge and that they had served in the War.

    In a letter written July 10, 1848 to James and Elizabeth Maxwell Toliver, Joseph
    Maxwell (Lucy's son) stated that "Old Uncle John Toliver had lost his sight but
    was in good health for a man of his age."

    On August 29, 1845 John testified to the State of North Carolina that he had

    witnessed the marriage of Jesse Toliver and Franky Stamper in 1782 and that they

    had lived together as man and wife about fifty-six years until his death February

    7, 1838.

   

    He died about 1863 in Alleghany County, NC. He and wife Tabitha were buried in a

    family cemetery near Sparta, NC, that was used in the 1700's and 1800's, but was

    eventually abandoned.  It was later rediscovered in the middle of a cow pasture.

    As of 2008, it has been fenced in and new stones places on the graves.  A sign

    calls it the Old Toliver Cemetery.  Pictures are on the Toliver Family MyFamily

    web site.

23. Thursay Toliver was born on November 6, 1812 in Ashe County, NC.
 

    This article contained in the February 26, 1916 edition of Farmer's Guide was written
    by Mrs. Ralph Riggs, who was a relative.  She collected this information from Thursay
    when she was 103 years old:

    "Few of us have the opportunity to tell a bit of pioneer history direct from the

    lips of one who is more than one hundred years old.  Here in Lawrence County lives

    my great-great aunt who is one hundred and three years old.  In 1815, her father,

    Charles Toliver, came here and took up a claim of one hundred and sixty acres.  He

    then returned home, in North Carolina, for his family.  When the early settlers

    took up their claim they paid down so much and paid the rest yearly.  If they found

    it impossible to pay for all they were permitted to relinquish a part of the claim.

    Aunt Thursay, as everyone calls her, was nearing her fourth birthday when they

    started back here, but she says that she can remember the trip as well as if it

    happened yesterday. The journey was made in a covered wagon, drawn by four horses.

    They led three milk cows.  Imagine, if you can, a trail with but few old wagon ruts,

    through forest after forest, whose leaves had covered the ground and whose limbs

    struck against the covered wagon, sometimes leaving a rent.  Three days before

    Christmas in 1816 Charles Toliver arrived with his family.  They settled near a

    spring as all did in those days, which is now the northeast corner of my father's

    farm.  The first task was to erect a temporary cabin, which contained only one room.

    Some settlers made only open front cabins.  Toliver made a picket fence around the

    cabin so the children could play with some safety.  When the cabin and yard was

    completed the father and sons began to clear for their cornfield.  After the corn

    crop was gathered they took it to Kentucky to have it ground.  Few were the trips

    because the journey required many days, often weeks.  A meal without bread was not

    unusual.  Sometimes they had grated bread.  This was made by grating corn, before

    it hardened, over a tin with many nail holes in it.  The pulp they used as meal.

    Later they hollowed out an oak stump for a mortar and ground the hardened corn into

    meal with heavy stone.  They had Johnnie cakes.  This was cornbread that was baked

    on a Johnnie board the fireplace.  This board was homemade. All the cooking was done

    in the fireplace.  Their dishes were pewter. They had iron, of course, a baking pot

    or a Dutch oven, a few other iron pots and a large iron kettle.  'Stoves' Aunt

    Thursay said, 'I never saw one until my own children were grown and married.' 

    Their dishes were pewter.  They did not bring anything breakable and only what they

    had to have.  They brought apple, peach, cherry and plum seeds which they planted

    in their nursery.  One of the apple trees still stands near the old home place. 

    Its diameter is not more, if as much, than twelve inches.  The branches are

    numerous, enough for a half dozen trees.  The apples are few, tough and coarse.

    Mr. Toliver was a blacksmith in North Carolina. When he came he brought along all

    the irons required to make his plows, harrows, hoes, etc.  The wooden parts he made

    here.  He made a loom for his wife to weave their cloth for clothes.  She had

    brought along her vegetable seeds and madder root and indigo seed which she set out

    and planted for dying red and blue.  Their lace they made with a needle on a board.

    They brought along a big and little spinning wheel.  Often at night before the buzz

    of the spinning wheel, the scream of the panther was heard.  The wolves howled and

    the growl of the bear was near.  Looking up from her work, through a opening, the

    fiery eyes of the catamount were seen. Aunt Thursay tells it all without a shudder.

    One morning when she and her father went to the sugar camp to start the kettles,

    while the mother and sisters cooked breakfast and the boys were clearing, her father

    stopped suddenly and told her to step behind a tree.  He motioned the dog down.  Aunt

    Thursay peeped from behind the tree and saw on a tree that leaned across their path,

    a bear.  Her father killed it.  They used bear fat to season greens.  Her mother

    would go out and gather an apronful of shonie for greens.  You don't know what shonie

    is, Aunt Thursay says, and I guess she is right.  The maple sap was always made into

    sugar and stored in barrels.  Wild bees were plentiful.  They hunted the bees trees,

    hived the bees in gums and stored the honey in jars.  This turned into sugar and it

    and the maple sugar were used to make sweet cakes.  When the fruit trees came into

    bearing they preserved all their fruit with the sugar.  Before the trees bore they

    had only wild fruits which were black and red haws, papaws, persimmons, wild grapes

    and May plums.  There were several years before any blackberries were found.  During

    this time they had a house raising, all neighbors helping, and erected a three floor

    log house.  I do not mean a three-room house, but one with a ground floor and two

    others above it.  The doors were made of clap boards and the floors of punchcons. 

    These were split logs whose faces were smoothed with a broad axe.  A wide poplar

    puncheon was used for the table. They made stools for chairs and brought their beds

    from North Carolina.  Years later the house was used for the barn by my grandfather.

    All that remains today of this once homestead is a heap of grass grown stones beneath

    the Balm of Gilead tree.  A log cabin was erected for the church house.  It stood in

    what would now be the center of the cemetery.  An old white headed man, from north of

    where Bedford now is located, came once a month to preach.  His name was Rev.

    Mitchell.  All he charged for preaching was the fee it cost him to cross White River

    on the ferry boat.  Rev. Mitchell soon died and the next pastor's name was Vandebuer.

    A man came from North Carolina and taught the school children in this same cabin that

    was named Spice Valley.  This I believe is the second oldest church in Indiana the

    other being Lost River Church.  They celebrated their centennial in 1914.  Spice

    Valley Church was organized beneath a shed owned by Billy Maxfield, that stood in a

    plot south of the cabin.  Maxfield was a mill-wright and there he ground the bread

    stuff for the early settlers by horse power.  Many times, Aunt Thursay said, 'when I

    was seven or eight years old, I led the horse around the sweep.'  The sweep was the

    path around the burrs where the horse walked to grind the corn.  A man settled in the

    valley.  His name was Bennie Webb.  He was a hatter and made woolen hats for men and

    boys.  There were seven families located here when the Tolivers came.  The first

    family that came to this county was named Phillips.  They came in 1813.  Toliver's 5

    nearest neighbors lived four miles distant.  A man by the name of Oodles moved near

    White River and made jeans for men and boys clothing.  There were no doctors.  They

    were seldom sick.  Aunt Thursay said she was grown long before she saw a dead body.

    A dentist was unknown.  I asked her what they did for toothache: 'Just let it ache'

    she replied.  Bells were put on the horses and cows so they could be easily found.

    Squirrels were a pest.  A premium was paid per head and an extra prize to the one who

    could show the most heads.  Wild turkeys were plentiful.  Mr. Toliver and sons would

    go out and kill wild turkeys. The mother dressed these, drying the breast meat to be

    used as bread. In those days of quilting bees, minute and Virginia reel dance and the

    husking bee, the squire did the marrying.  I tried to get Aunt Thursay to tell me a

    romance, but she only smiled.  She told me this ending of one wedded pair.  Every day

    when the husband was out at work the wife would take him an apronful of sweet cakes.

    One day he saw her coming and waited for he was hungry.  When she drew near, what do

    you think he got?  Rocks?  Yes, and she threw them, too.  A few other acts and they

    parted.  He left her.  There was one place they called Deer Lick. Here the dear came

    to lick salt that was in the soil.  Deer Lick is a pond today.  Across the fields is

    a number of old rocks.  Beneath these was an Indian camp.  Aunt Thursay, with her

    father and a neighbor's girl, went there to hunt beads and relics.  Quite a number

    of flint have been found.  I have in my possession an Indian hatchet that we found

    in our garden.  I have seen many rocks on my father's farm that Aunt Thursay said

    were used to sharpen knifes.  The Indians were gone when Tolivers came."

    how he had never taken much medicine, but had observed certain laws of health

    all his life.  Several weeks ago he fell and though the injury was not serious

    it seemed to aggravate the infirmities of age.  He peacefully passed away

    father owned the Grand Hotel and ran it for a while.  As a child I grew up

    around his friends from around the world who he had met at the French Lick

    Springs Hotel where he was the hotel manager for a while.  As the depression

    deepened he turned the hotel over to a more professional manager.  He then

    began building a garage building for the sales and service of the new auto

    industry.  Not real good timing as the Depression just would not let up.  When

    real cash money got hard to come by and most of my dad's medical service was

    on credit my mother had to go back to teaching school."

     (March 6, 1913) reported "Elizabeth Toliver Charles was born near Orangeville,

     Indiana, July 30th, 1869.  She was the daughter of George and Cornelia Wilson

     Toliver and was the oldest daughter of that family.  She died in the early

     morning of Feb. 27th, 1913, aged 43 years, 6 months and 28 days.  Lizzie grew

     up into a happy, wholesome, young woman.  Her gentle disposition won for her

     the love of everybody with whom she came in contact.  On May 3rd, 1888, she

     was married to Will A. Charles, who survives her.  Comparatively all of her

     married life was spent in the house where she died, familiarly known as the

     Aunt Sallie Campbell home, and there she particularly endeared herself to us

     all by her open heart and hospitality which was no-wise changed from former

     years.  Few of her friends indeed, are those who could not recall Lizzie's

     hearty invitations to her home, and her kindly ministry in it.  For many years

     she has been a consecrated Christian woman, and was a faithful member of Ames

     Chapel M.E. Church. Lizzie's Christian life was the kind that counts for God.

     It's fruitage was that of the spirit. Galatians 5:22 reads The fruit of the

     spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

     meekness, temperance.  Against such there is no law, and they that are Christ's

     have crucified the flesh.  And so it was with our loved one.  The husband and

     mother, the brothers and sisters are grief stricken.  The companionship is

     broken, the comforting counsel is gone, but we know that in her own suffering

     (and for years she bore affliction) Lizzie found not only comfort but joy in

     her Christian service and she would bid you turn to her Savior and make Him

     your comforter in these dark hours.  She would bid you rejoice in her heavenly

     birthday, where she has gone like stepping forth into another room, to greet

     her Savior and the loved ones there and to make heaven nearer to us all for

     her going.  There are left besides scores of friends, the husband, brothers,

     sisters and other relatives.  The funeral services were held at Ames Chapel

     on Saturday, March 1st, by her pastor Rev. O.E. Haley and Rev. Raaf, of

     Bloomfield, her former pastor, and the body laid to rest in the cemetery

     adjoining, beneath a blanket of beautiful flowers, each one a mute tribute

     of love for this life not lived long, but lived so well."  She was buried on

     March 1, 1913 at Ames Chapel Cemetery in French Lick Township, Orange

     County, IN.

     An article in the Orleans Progress Examiner (October 6, 2004) reported in part
     "King turned 102 on Monday and will celebrate with around 50 relatives on Saturday
     in Indianapolis.  Born Oct. 4, 1902, she spent her early years in Orangeville. 
     Ora moved with her family to Orleans when she was in the fifth grade ... Upon moving
     to Orleans, the family bought a 120-acre farm near the Old Union area ... after
     grade school, King graduated from Orleans high school in 1920 ... She attended one
     summer at Indiana University but had taught school children prior to attending
     college.  She taught school at Wesley Chapel School, and said about her teaching
     career, 'It wasn't much fun, it had all eight grades, and in most of the grades,
     you had just one in the class.'  She added, 'Sometimes I wonder how I did it cause
     I just graduated (from high school) in the spring', making her just a few years
     older thansome of her students.  Ora married George Washington King when she was
     about 22 years old.  The couple had three daughters.  Her oldest daughter, Betty,
     had a bad heart and died when she was about 11.  George King died Jan. 18, 1945 at
     the age of 41 ... Ora never remarried or even dated ... Ora moved to Indianapolis
     and lived there for around 30 years, helping out at Ellen's when she went to school
     ... After moving back to Orleans, on the place where she and her husband had lived,
     where Sharon now lives, she continued her independence.  She drove a car and mowed
     grass until in her 80's."

     An article in the Bedord Times-Mail (June 5, 2010) reported "Ora Toliver King won’t
     make it to tonight’s Orleans High School alumni banquet.  But the 107-year-old
     Orleans alumna won’t be overlooked as those who gather for the annual event take
     time to salute this year’s honor classes.  That means there will be a reference to
     the 90th anniversary of the Orleans High School class of 1920.  That was Ora’s
     class.  As president of the Orleans Alumni Association, Robert Henderson said,
     'There were 24 in the Orleans High School graduating class of 1920.  We do plan to
     recognize Mrs. King ... as much as we are aware, our oldest living Orleans alumni.”
     He continued, “And while she will be unable to attend the event, we certainly want
     to send her our heartfelt best wishes and thoughts during this particular time.' 
     Ora’s longevity was called to my attention a few weeks ago by Sue Claxton, a great-
     niece.  Then, a few days ago, Ora’s niece, Dorothy White of Paoli, mentioned it to
     me, as well, letting me know about Ora’s distinction among Orleans alumni.  I caught
     up with Ora’s daughter, Ellen Robbins of Greenwood, who explained that her mother
     spends her time these days at the Paoli Health and Living facility.  And, although
     Ora isn’t up to attending tonight’s alumni banquet, Ellen said of her mother, 'She’s
     a very capable ... lady.  Her mind is excellent. Her body is weak.  Her hearing is

     bad. Her sight is bad.'  In her younger days — her late 80s — Ora would attend alumni

     banquets.  As I was speaking with Ellen on the phone on Wednesday, it wasn’t

     difficult for us to determine exactly when Ora had gone to the Orleans banquet the

     last time.  'It was the day of the tornado,' Ellen told me.  I responded, 'That was

     20 years ago today.'  That particular alumni banquet, on June 2, 1990, honored Ora’s

     class on the 70th anniversary of its graduation.  Ora had gone to the banquet with

     Ellen, her husband Chuck, and with another daughter, Sharon Zimmerman and her

     husband Wayne.  Three of Ora’s classmates had been in attendance that year, Ellen

     reported.  Ora began life in Orangeville, where she was born on Oct. 4, 1902.  After

     graduating from high school, she became a teacher.  She taught for only two years

     before she married George King.  He died in 1945 and Ora went to work at the Reliance

     factory in Orleans and later took jobs in the Indianapolis area for a number of years

     before returning to Orange County to live.  Ora and George had three daughters. 

     Betty was the oldest and died when she was 11.  Ellen, now 79 and also a graduate

     Orleans High School, was the middle daughter.  Sharon was four years younger than

     Ellen.  She died earlier this year.  'My sister and her husband bought our home

     place (south of Orleans on Ind. 37), and Mother bought a mobile home and put it

     on the old home place,' Ellen said.  Ora lived in the mobile home for a few years,

     but later moved in with Sharon and Wayne.  She stayed with them until early this

     year whenSharon became ill and could no longer care for her.  That’s when Ora went

     to the Paoli nursing facility.  Ellen said she and Chuck drive from Greenwood to

     visit Ora twice a week.  Although Ellen and Sharon also graduated from Orleans High

     School, Ellen said she won’t get to go to the alumni banquet this evening to hear

     the words shared in honor of her mother.  'I wish I could be there,' she said.

     Orleans alumni who will be in attendance will no doubt be impressed by the fact

     the school has the opportunity to recognize a living graduate from 90 years ago.

     'We think that’s pretty incredible,' Robert said."

    

     She died on February 16, 2011 at the age of 108 in Paoli, Orange County, IN.  The

     Bedford Times-Mail (February 17, 2011) reported "Ora T. King, 108, Paoli, formerly
