Generation One

 

1.    Levi Douglass, b. ca 1750 in Virginia,[1] [or the eastern shore of Maryland in present-day Wicomico County], d. 1787 in Harrison Co, (W)VA.[2],[3]

      

       Levi Douglass was born possibly in Virginia, but more likely on the eastern shore of Maryland in present-day Wicomico County.  His date of birth is generally accepted as being around 1750, but may have been as late as about 1760.  In about 1777, just prior to his 1778 marriage to Nancy Anne Merrick in Monongalia County, Virginia (now West Virginia), Levi Douglass signed a petition for the formation of Harrison County, which came about in 1784.  In May 1785, a survey for Levi Douglass was recorded for 400 acres in Harrison County on the Brushy Fork of Elk Creek, adjoining the land of Benjamin Coplin.1

       Excerpts from "History of Harrison County West Virginia," by Henry Haymond, 1910:

      

       "On the 31st December, 1771 a party of explorers consisting of John Merrick, Samuel Cottrill, Andrew Cottrill, Levi Douglass and Sotha Hickman, encamped on Ann Moores run near the present town of Grasselli in Clark District.

       They were engaged in hunting and looking out for lands upon which to make permanent settlements. On New Year's day 1772 they turned out to hunt, and passing south through the low gap where Lemuel D. Holden afterwards lived for so many years, and near there killed a bear and several turkeys.

       On the little bottom where Brushy Fork empties into Elk Creek their dogs discovered a herd of buffalo and in a short time the hunters had killed seven of them. One of the largest of the herd being fatally wounded in attempting to escape down Elk Creek fell dead into the bed of the little stream that puts into Elk below the mouth of Brushy Fork, and lay in such a position that they could not pull him out, and he was left to lie there with regrets that they could not get his robe.

       The party remained in this camp all winter and were visited by a friendly Indian who hunted with them for some time.

       They discovered the abandoned camp on the "West Fork River of Robert Lindsay a trapper, and also where he had made one or more canoes to transport his furs down to Fort Pitt.

       In the Spring of 1772 they selected lands on which to establish permanent homes. Andrew Cottrill located his claim and built his cabin at the site of their camp, on Ann Moore's run, where Grasselli is now located. Samuel Cottrill just east of where Clarksburg now stands, near the Jackson grave yard. Sotha Hickman on the opposite side of Elk Creek near where the Elk View Cemetery now is, and Levi Douglas preempted four hundred acres on the Brushy Fork of Elk. John Merrick did not permanently locate in this country but probably went further West.

       There are still residing in Harrison County many descendants of the two Cottrills, Hickman and Douglass, and they have the satisfaction of knowing that their ancestors were among the very first permanent settlers in the present limits of Harrison County."  [p. 21]

      

       "It appears that at the June Court 1787 appraisers were appointed for the estate of Levi Douglass and that at the September Court of the same year Mrs. Ann Burrowes was appointed guardian for Thomas Cottrill orphan of Andrew Cottrill, deceased.  This indicates that both of these men died in that year, which is a

       matter of interest as they were both among the original pioneer settlers of Harrison County, as is related elsewhere, and had borne the hardships of frontier life for sixteen years."  [p. 208]

      

       "Levi Douglass.  In company with Sotha Hickman he was captured by Indians, an account of which is given elsewhere.  He was a man of sterling worth and for that day accumulated considerable property.

       The census of Monongalia County taken in 1782 before Harrison County was formed, shows that at that date his family consisted of four members.

       The inventory of his estate was dated August 4, 1787, the exact date of his death being unknown.

       His descendants still reside in the County."  [p. 382]

      

       "Sotha Hickman.  ...  While trapping on the Liitle Kanawha River in Company with Levi Douglass they were captured by a party of Indians and taken to their towns on the Sciota River in Ohio.

       One night while the Indians were holding a grand dance and festival the prisoners were left in charge of an old man who fell off into a sleep.  They each then quietly seized a gun and equipments and struck out for home and liberty.

       Travelling only at night they were four days without food and after reaching the Virginia side of the Ohio River they were fortunate enough to kill a bear and ate so much of it that they both became very sick and were relieved by drinking what was called rock oil, which was found floating on the surface of Hughes River."  [p. 383]

      

       "To show the household articles in use, and the personal property belonging to a well to do pioneer, the following is taken from the appraisement of the estate of Levi Douglass, who died in 1787 :

       2 horses, 1 colt, 2 steers, 2 heifers, 1 cow, 1 calf, 17 shoats, 1 plow, 1 negro boy, 1 rifle gun, shot pouch and powder horn, 1 woman's saddle, 2 bridles, 1 man's saddle, drawing knife, stillyards, pot and hooks, hackle-bell, pans, spinning wheel, wooden ware, knives and forks, pewter ware, beds and bedding, flax seed, wheat, hemp seed, beehives and hominy block."  [p. 427][4]

      

       He married 1778 in Monongalia Co, (W)VA,[5] Nancy Anne Merrick, also known as Anne Merrick,[6] b. 1758 in West Augusta Co, VA,1 d. 1838 in Jackson Co, (W)VA.1

       Andrew: Resident of Harrison County, and later Ritchie & Doddridge Counties, in present-day West Virginia.  He served in the War of 1812 in Captain Davis's company, attached to the First Regiment, First Battalion, and First Brigade of the Virginia Militia, participated in the engagement of Fort Defiance on the Maumee River, and was discharged at Delaware, Ohio on April 4, 1813.12,11

Virginia; Willis N. Warren, 3, b. Ohio; Elizabeth Nutter, 93, b. South Carolina.  All four of the adults in the household were indicated as being unable to read and write.

       (Note:  The surname for Willis Warren was originally entered as "Nutter," which was lined out and replaced with a ditto mark under "Warren" of the preceding line.  The surname for Elizabeth, whose entry followed Willis's, was entered simply with a ditto mark directly under the lined out "Nutter," giving the appearance of indicating Nutter as her surname rather than Warren.  This was presumably Andrews's mother, Elizabeth Cottrell Nutter.)

         1900 Census, Harrison Co, WV (Elk District), enumerated on Jun 13 1900:

         (Note:  The entry of no children for Anna is an apparent clerical error, as the listed Douglass grandchildren are all hers.  Cecil, listed as a son, is actually Andrew's grandson, a child of Edward.  Virginia Ward is presumably a daughter of Mary Etta Douglass and Solomon Ward.  Exact relationship with Arthur and Marie Hall is unclear.)

         Some researchers report the parents of Nancy Nutter, the wife of William Watson, as James Nutter (1773-1833) and Julia Ann Davisson (1775-1826), a relationship that is at variance with substantiated facts about her.  Nancy Nutter Watson's death record in Doddridge County states that she was born in Barbour Co, (W)VA, the daughter of "A. Nutter."  While Barbour County is inconsistent with the reported birthplaces (Harrison and Doddridge Counties) of her siblings and may be incorrect, we do know that her husband William Watson's family had resided for some time in Barbour County, and that her two oldest children were also born in Barbour County.  As far as can be determined, James Nutter and Julia Ann Davisson spent their entire lives in Harrison County and had no known Barbour County connections.

        

         Adding to the confusion is the Nutter genealogy compiled by Donald Norman, based on Barr Wilson's work, listing among the children of James Nutter & Julia Ann Davisson, and also among the children of Andrew Nutter & Malinda Willis, a daughter named Nancy who married a William Watson.  That there would be two Nancy Nutters who married two William Watsons in that region and time frame seems very unlikely.  However, we do know that a Nancy Nutter married a William Watson in Harrison County on Oct 22 1840 (or possibly Mar 4 1841, based on interpretation of the handwritten marriage record; a Marriage Bond was executed in Harrison County on Sep 1 1840 by Nancy Nutter's parents, Anda (sic) & Malinda Nutter, and also signed by her brother Willis Nutter and by Otha G. Watson, half-brother of William M. Watson).  There is nothing in the marriage record itself (MR Bk 3, p. 145) reflecting the parentage or exact identity of either person, leaving open the possibility that it was a different Nancy Nutter, a different William Watson, or both.  But the family members mentioned in the marriage bond should dispel any doubt.

        

         No other marriage record for William or Nancy was found in Harrison, Doddridge or Barbour Counties.  Given all the evidence and circumstances, we conclude that it was this Nancy Nutter, daughter of Andrew Nutter & Malinda Willis, who married William Watson.

        

         She married[119],113 Oct-22-1840 in Harrison Co, (W)VA,[120] William M. Watson, b. ca 1818 in Harrison Co, (W)VA,[121],85,31,43 (son of Jacob Watson and Sarah Pritchard), d. Feb- 9-1890 in Roane Co, WV,[122],43 buried in Hebron Memorial Church Cemetery, Roane Co, WV,43,[123],[124] resided in Roane Co, WV,[125] census 1880 in Roane Co, WV, census 1870 in Southwest District, Doddridge Co, WV, census 1850, 1860 in Doddridge Co, (W)VA.

        

         William: There is some question as to the date and place of birth of this William M. Watson.  Age 45 given at time of 1860 Census would put birth in about 1815, while age given for the 1870 and 1880 Census would put birth ca 1819.  Age 53 given at time of his second marriage, in Sep 1871, would put birth ca 1818.  Age 72 given at the time of his death in Feb 1890 would put birth ca 1817 or 1818.  His place of birth is given as Harrison County in the record of his second marriage, but as Mercer County in his death record.  Harrison County would seem more likely.

This home was occupied continuously by Josiah and his descendants from 1867 until Dec 26 2011, when grandson Lane Bush Nutter died in the home.  Both Josiah and Elizabeth also died in that home, and all of their children were born there.  The exact location of the house is on Stone Lick at the mouth of Horn Creek, in Gilmer County.  It is located within Gilmer County, but extremely close to both the Ritchie County line and the Doddridge County line, leading to much confusion.  The current postal mailing address is 322 East Stone Lick Drive, Coxs Mills, WV, but the same house previously had an Auburn mailing address.  Auburn is in Ritchie County, but the house is physically located in Gilmer County.  [Diane Nutter, g-g-grandaughter of Josiah Porter Nutter]
