Bath County Religious Denominations

The majority of my ancestors in Bath County, including the Baileys, Whittingtons, Ulerys, and McCartys, were members of the Christain Church. I believe this denomination was originally called the Campbellites. I believe there is a connection with the Disciples of Christ denomination. I would guess that this denomination along with the Methodists and Baptists made up the majority of early Bath Countians. The LDS was not formed until about 1830-1840. I think the Scot-Irish who made up most of the early settlers were originally Presbyterian but during the mid 1700s many converted to Methodists, etc.

Hi, Linda. Appears my first response didn't get through so will try again. My grandmother was Lucy McCarty (m. James Whittington). Her parents were William McCarty and Marcelite Staton. William was one of the many children of John Paul McCarty and Anna Spence Hart. John's father was Augustine McCarty, the brickwall of Bath County McCarty researchers. If you have any questions write me at my e-mail address of ><

Saw your reference to Augustine McCarty. I am not at my home computer and don't have my records available but happen to have a flash drive with the following note from the rootsweb forum which may be pertinent. My gg grandmother was Nancy McCarty, daughter of William Thaddeus McCarty and Judith Yerby.

The information source was from my ancestor's Bible and notes left to me from my late aunt who had been trying to find out more information on our McCartys. We've had very little information to go on that is why I'm posting it here. I descend from Madison's 3rd wife. I think it is just 3 wives. We only knew about his last wife and knew he had another child as in that child's will, he call wife # 3. his beloved stepmother. I'm trying to find out what happened to the other children and who was Polly and if their were other children. I'm told the family is Scot-Irish. Madison must have had a first name, I just don't know what it is and trying to find a Madison during that time period is difficult.
I would like to know more about them, just like you.

This was found in my ancestor's Bible - Madison's son who married a Sorrel Handwriting is difficult to decipher.

Daniel "Augustine" MCCARTY b. 10/23/1784 - abt.5/26/1823 Bath, KY
Hannah Wells b. 3/29/1786 SC
I can't make out 2 of the names
Elizabeth MCCARTY
Catherine MCCARTY
Madison MCCARTY 1814 - 1853

. On 6 July 1784, for two hundred pounds of current money of Virginia, they sold 144 1/2 acres along Farnham Creek, a part of the tract that had descended to William from his father, Billington (stated in the will), to Charles Barber McCarty (Wm.'s cousin). . . .
The deed was acknowledged in open court by Wm. on 6 Sept. 1785 . A statement dated 21 Mar 1784 that Martha Corbin "could not
conveniently travel to the court to acknowledge the deed" (perhaps
this was her pregnancy with Daniel Lee McCarty since he was born 23 Oct 1784) was recorded 21 Mar 1786 after William Peachey and William Mishall went to her home and "examined the said Martha Corbin
privately and apart from her said husband...without persuasion or

Looks like this could be our Daniel. He may have came to Kentucky with his Uncle Billington who appears in Clark County, Ky. The birth dates are the same but he is known as Daniel Lee McCarty.

Robert McCarty m. to Polly Clavell [Clonell] in Bath County, Apr 2, 1833. I found a William Clavell on the 1820 census with a wife and 6 girls. Next door is an older Elzabeth Clavell with 5 males and one daughter.

I will add more.

I know nothing about the siblings, all I have is names. Sorry, I don't have more information. In pencil by Madison is a Polly 4/2/1833 and Nancy 1852 This is very light.

Oh, and Augustine & Hannah marriage date 8/26/1806

The marriage date could be 1805 as the loop of the 5 does not close like 6 (a fancy 5)

The only daughter at Machodoc was Ann Lee, born in 1683. After William Fitzhugh's death in 1715, Ann wed Daniel McCarty, a powerful figure in Westmoreland County who was then serving as speaker of the House of Burgess. She had several children by McCarty and survived him until 1732, when she was buried on the Fitzhugh estate, Eagle's Nest, in King George County.
(Paul C. Nagel: The Lees of Virginia, Oxford Univ. Press, New York, 1990)

Several volumes of FTW list Mary Lee Fitzhugh as the daughter of Ann and William. The discrepancy of their ages is to great. Ann would have died before Mary Lee Fitzhugh was born.

Dear Pete:
Hoping you are still online. I am sure we have some Staton connections, and would love your help if you can.

My Staton connection is my gggrandfather Melvin Lafayette Staton 1851. His daughter Marceleta. Also, my gg grandmother Lucy Jane McCarty 1851 in Bath co. Lucy's father was Andrew Jackson McCarty 1818 Ky. d. 1880 Bath Co.
does any of this connect?
thanks for your time.

Debby, I am still on line but with a different e-mail address from older messages in this thread. I do not have any data on the Staton branch in my tree other than Marcelita. Also my McCarty info is very limited. I think Andrew McCarty was one of the many children of James McCarty and America Fielder. Thus he was a distant cousin of my McCarty connection. I suspect that there are several Bath County researchers with more information than I have. My McCarty information is limited pretty much to the Bath County census data available in most genealogy libraries.

Re: Perry Matthew Staton.

While "Perry" appears to be a frequently-used first or middle name among the Statons, I'm sorry to say that I don't have "Perry Matthew" in my file of Staton names.

Any possibility for just Matthew Staton?

Any connection with Perry Staton born in Kentucky and went to Appanoose, Schuyler, County?

Appreciate your assistance and time.
