I have Lucy Poe as a daughter of Simon Poe and Rhoda Flowers Marsh married to Richard Herndon. They married about 1739 and I show him dying abt 1742. I have seen where Lucy is married to a Richard Straughn in 1755. Did Lucy mary twice?? And is her mother Rhoda Flowers Marsh or Sarah Bradford, Simons first wife?

Lucy Poe was the daughter of Sarah Bradford. Judging by the ages of the children, Rhoda Flowers Marsh was Simon Sr.'s 1st wife. So with this in mind, since I don't have an exact marriage date, she was probably his first wife.

You didn't give me a year or age of your John, but you may start with James Poe, born 1735 in VA, died about 1825 in Fayette, AL. He was married to Mary Watts. This is probably his descendents. James descends from Simon Poe Sr. from Chatham County, NC. Simon Poe Sr's father was Samuel. My line also descends from Samuel then Simon Sr. then Simon Jr. You and I branch off there. Our great great great great great great grandfathers were half brothers, if that line checks out for you. Hope this helps.

I could be wrong, but this is the results of our Poe search. please email me @

Simon Poe Sr. the son of Samuel Poe Sr born in Nottingham-Derbyshire England (b. 1775. d.8/17/1724 buried in St. Vautier Church Cemetary, Essex County, VA) the son of Leonard Mary Poe. Simon Sr. was born in either 1705 or 1707 and d. on 8/17/1793, Chatham County, NChe was married first to Sarah Bradford Poe Herndon (Wm.) the aunt of Sophie and Hannah Bradford, his second wife was Rhonda Flowers Marsh Poe and I show no children born by her. I also have her b. 1734, d. 1793 and I show Simon Poe Sr. died on 8/17/1793 therefore id I am correct he and Rhonda were married, but a short time. Simon Poe Sr. and Sarah Bradford Poe Herndon (daughter of Samuel Bradford) had a son by the name of James Simon "Major Reverend" Poe b. in 1751 Carolina Co., N, lived in Anson Co., NC on the Pardee River, d. in 1827 in Fayette Co., Newtonville, AL. was buried near Tuscaloosa, AL. he married Mary Wates in Randolph Co., NC around 1772, she was b. in 1755, these were the first of the Poes to migrate into Alabama. Simon Poe Jr. the son of Simon Sr. had a son named Captain Stephen Poe Sr, born in Carolina Co., NC, b. in 1757 or 1759 in Carolina Co., NC who died in Calhoun Co., AL on either 7/7/1843 or 8/13/1843, he married his wife Mary in 1776. The Poe that migrated to MO. started with Simon Poe III, he was the brother of Cpt. Stephen Poe Sr.. Simon III d. in Cape Girardeau, MO. in 1826, was born in either 1764 or 1765. They also had brothers by the name of David SR., Terry (married on 1/3/1834 to Susannah in 1798 or 1799) who migrated to Scott CO., MO. they had a son named Simon IV b. on 11/6/1826 and Cpt. William Howard Poe b.1768, d. 1799 in NC. he married Susannah ??? b. 1780, d. 1850 Cape Giaradeau, MO. Cpt. William Howard Poe was R raised by William Barnes to learn Blacksmithy. According to the NC jury records he was born in 1794 I however believe this weong as I show Simon Poe's 5 Children were born in 1757, 1758, 1764 and 1768. I also show William d, in 1799, therefore, I believe the birth of 1768 is correct. Hope this helps some!! Don Poe Please email me @
