son's name is Rueben. We found them in Miss.

the same names. (seemed to run in families)

Hi there,

It seems we have a pretty close connection with the Searcy side of our families. I have a couple of old photos and a few contacts that I am working with to complete the research on this group of folks. I would love to swap photos and info sometime, if you are interested. I don't have alot of documented info, just verbal info from family and found on graves.

My line: Joseph Searcy/Mary---John Searcy/Phoebe H.----John Searcy/Annis W.---John Thomas Searcy/Mary---Lemuel Searcy/Annie W.---James William Searcy/Mahala P---Katherine G. Searcy/Robert Boyd---Hattie Boyd/William Arthur Nichols---William Arthur Nichols/Lillie McCollum---William A. Nichols/Debra Vajdos---ME

Quite a mouthful... ;-)

I hope to hear from you and I hope I can be of some help to your research.

Bartlett Searcy, who died in Granville County, North Carolina, in 1784, was an uncle of the younger Bartlett Searcy. His wife was Lucy Anderson. At least three of his sons came to Kentucky and settled in Madison County: Samuel, Richard, and Charles. The Reuben Searcy, who was joint executor of this Bartlett's will, was his brother. He was quite prominent in his county, serving as sheriff and county clerk from 1771 to 1783, which entitles his descendants to membership in Revolutionary societies and the Colonial Dames. (But he is not the Reuben who served in Captain Holder's company of Kentucky forces who were at the Battle of Blue Licks.) He married Susan Henderson, daughter of Richard Henderson, who bought and financed the settlement of Kentucky. Reuben Searcy was twice married and altogether had 18 children, among them were Thomas, Leonard, and Reuben (which tells you who the witnesses to Bartlett's Searcy's, Sr., will were). The other witness, Elizabeth Searcy, was no doubt the spinster sister of Bartlett. John Williams, recorded as one of the executors of the will, was no doubt a member of that Williams family into which the Searcys and Hendersons had married several times. William Searcy, elder brother to Reuben, Bartlett, John Jr., Richard, and Elizabeth, married a Miss Williams. This list of six Searcy children represents the second generation of the family in America. Their parents were John Searcy, Sr., and his wife, Phoebe Hargrave, who came from Nottingham, England, to North Carolina about 1728. The Searcys were originally French Huguenots, and have an attractive coat of arms.

I believe that this is the message that you were seeking....
Bartlett Search of Fayette County, Kentucky, was a son of John Searcy, Jr., of Granville, Rutherford, and Johnson Counties, North Carolina. I do not have the proof of his wife's maiden name, but I believe she was Ann Morgan. This Bartlett Searcy is perhaps the most romantic character in this interesting family. He may have gone to Kentucky with Daniel Boone when he was commissioned by the wealthy Richard Henderson to establish the settlement of his "Transylvania," as the territory purchased by Henderson from the Indians was then called. At least Bartlett is found in Boonesborough as early as 1776 when he was one of a party of eight men who rescued Daniel Boone's and Col. Calloway's daughters from the Indians who had stolen them as they played on the banks of the river at that place. (Collins' History Of Kentucky.) Bartlett was a comparatively young man when he was killed by Indians in Woodford County. (Draper MMS.) Bartlett's name is on the monument at Boonesborough.

Was Ann his wife or mother?
----
FYI I have found records that identify Bartlett and John Searcy (Madison County) as participating in Battle of Blue Licks Aug. 19 1792.
Both brothers are listed among survivors of this battle where over 1/3 of Kentucky force were massacred.

Would love to see some of your Searcy photos. I have been seeking, unsuccessfully, information on Elizabeth Searcy, born Dec. 8, 1772, daughter of Reuben and Susanna (Henderson) Searcy. This Elizabeth married our ancestor Stephen White, born November 11, 1762, and settled in Rutherford County, Tennessee. In have detailed information on many members of the Searcy family but would love to have additional information about these folks.
