       "Thomas Pritchard Sr. was born about 1730-35 in King George, Stafford or Prince William County, Virginia, and died before 1812 in Allegany County, Maryland.  He married Rachel Davis about 1759 in Loudoun County, Virginia.  Like his father and earlier ancestors, he was a craftsman and pioneer at heart.  The exact location of his birth is not known because of Virginia's fluctuating county borders and formation of new counties from older ones.  Christopher II, his father, received a Prince William County land grant in 1742 from Lord Fairfax.  Prince William County was formed in 1730 from Stafford and King George Counties.  Fairfax County was formed in 1742 from Prince William County, Loudoun County was formed in 1747 from Fairfax County, and Fauquier County was formed in 1759 from Prince William County.  These boundary shifts allowed the Pritchard family to leave traces in each county."17

      

       He married ca 1759 in Loudoun Co, VA,17 Rachel Davis, b. ca 1745 in Loudoun Co, VA,[22] (daughter of John Davis and Cecelia Fitzhugh Edderington), d. aft Jun 1813 in Allegany Co, MD.2

      

       Rachel: Rachel Davis was born about 1745 in Loudon Co, VA, and died probably between 1813 and 1815 in Allegany Co, MD.  The Davis family came to America from Cardigan, Wales.  Rachel's grandfather may have been Thomas Davis Sr., who died in Loudon County on May 6 1758 and was married to Margaret.22

      

                                      Children:

                             i.       JOHN PRICHARD, also known as John Pritchard,[23] b. Jul-29-1760 in Leesburg, Loudoun Co, VA,[24] d. Mar-28-1847 in Decatur Co, IN,24 [There are several discrepancies about the date of John Pri(t)chard's death.  On DAR records, it ranges from Jun 21 1842 to Mar 24 1847, the date carved on his tombstone at Sandcreek Cemetery.  (Emily Pritchard Cary, p. 61)], buried Sandcreek Cem, Wass - Twp in Decatur Co, IN, resided since 1833 in Decatur Co, IN,[25] resided formerly in Scott Co, KY,25 resided 1798 in Selbyville, Allegany Co, MD,[26] military Mar 1781 - Sep 1782 Revolutionary War.[27]  He married Oct-12-1795 in Loudoun Co, VA,24 Anna Smarr, b. 1774 in Loudoun Co, VA,24 (daughter of John Smarr and Sarah Pearl), d. Dec-15-1841,24 buried Sandcreek Cem, Wass - Twp in Decatur Co, IN.24

                             ii.      SARAH PRITCHARD b. ca 1762 in Loudoun Co, VA,24 d. in Fairfax Co, VA.24

                                     

                                      Sarah Pritchard was the only child of Thomas Pritchard Sr. who remained in Virginia.18

                                     

                                      She married (1) bef 1789,24 John Smarr.  She married (2) Aug-17-1799 in Loudoun Co, VA,24 Cornelius Skinner.

                                      Though not proved, it is considered likely that this William Pritchard/Prichard was actually the son of Thomas Pritchard Sr.'s presumed brother William Christopher Pritchard, who died six months before the child's birth.  Since no record of the child's mother, Amelia Knotts, is found after that, it is possible that she died during childbirth, and the child was then taken into his uncle Thomas' family.[29]

                                     

                                      He married Feb-  -1805 in Monongalia Co, (W)VA,[30] Hannah Meredith (daughter of Davis Meredith and Unknown).

                                     

                                      Hannah: Hannah Meredith, wife of William Pritchard, was the step-daughter of William's sister Nancy Anne, who married Hannah's widowed father Davis Meredith.26

                             viii.   MARY L. PRITCHARD26 b. ca 1782 in Loudoun Co, VA.27  She married (1) Mar- 4-1799 in Loudoun Co, VA,27 Charles Roberts.  She married (2) Dec-22-1804 in Allegany Co, MD,31 John Parker, census 1810 in Monongalia Co, (W)VA.18

 

 

Generation Seven

 

7.    Thomas Pritchard, Jr. (6.Thomas6, 5.Christopher5, 4.Thomas4, 3.Christopher3, 2.Thomas2, 1.Thomas1), b. Jan- 9-1768 in Leesburg, Loudoun Co, VA,24,[32],[33] d. Dec-24-1846 in Oxford, Doddridge Co, WV,32,33 buried in Oxford Baptist Church Cemetery, Doddridge Co, WV,[34],[35] [Emily Pritchard Cary (p. 82) reports his burial in "White Oak Cemetery, Oxford," while "Ritchie County WV Cemeteries," p. 631, reports his as the only burial at Pritchard Cemetery, described as "Incomplete.  Near Oxford; Exact Location Unknown.  See MKL - p. 40."], resided ca 1832 (settled) in Ritchie Co, (W)VA,32 census 1810 in Monongalia Co, (W)VA,18 resided 1809 (moved) to Monongalia Co, (W)VA,[36] census 1800 in Allegany Co, MD,19 occupation miller (saw and grist).32

      

       Thomas Pritchard's ancestors came from England and settled at Jamestown in about 1610.  His brother, John Pritchard, saw three years of service as a soldier in the Continental Army during the American Revolution.  In about 1832, Thomas Pritchard came from The Glades in Preston County and built the first mill on the South Fork of Hughes River, below Oxford, making the first settlement in that area.  A certain Henry O. Middleton had given him one hundred acres of land in that wilderness as inducement to settle and to erect a saw and grist mill.35

      

       He married24,35 (1) Jan- 9-1796 in Allegany Co, MD,32,[37] Nancy Tichenell, b. ca 1767 in Morris Co, NJ,[38] (daughter of Moses Tichenal and Margaret Jackson), d. bef Oct 1812 at the Glades, near Rohr, Preston Co, WV,19,35 buried at the Glades, near Rohr, Preston Co, WV.35,32

      

       Nancy: "Nancy Tichenell, first wife of Thomas Pritchard Jr., was descended from a prominent New Jersey family, most of whom retained the original spelling of Tichenor.  Beginning with Nancy's father Moses, a Revolutionary War soldier, the spelling went awry, and his descendants used a variety of forms, most ending with 'L'."

       Nancy Tichenell (Titchenell, Tichnell, Tichenal) died before Oct 25 1812 (the date of husband Thomas Pritchard's remarriage to Mary Moody) in what is now Preston Co, WV.  Nancy and Thomas had seven or eight children.  Some genealogists believe that his daughter Mary was actually the daughter of Mary Moody.  Because his daughter Elizabeth was born Feb 20 1812, it is quite likely that Nancy died at the time of that birth, a common event in pioneer families.  Mary's given name is another clue.

       "Two weeks after their marriage in Allegany County, Maryland, Thomas became the guardian of Nancy's younger siblings, Stephen Tickenal (sic), Margaret Tickenal, and Jain (Jane) Tichenal, orphan children of Moses Tickenal, all of that county."[39]

      

       He married (2) Oct-25-1812 in Monongalia Co, (W)VA,24 Mary Moody, b. 1785 in Cumberland Co, PA,36 (daughter of Robert Moody, Jr. and Mary Jane Hutchison), d.

         "Ritchie County in History and Romance," p. 40, lists as children of John Moody Pritchard and Sarah Haddox the same first eight that we show here, with the exception that a son Jasper is listed rather than James.  James is documented through his marriage record as a child of this couple; since Jasper and James are shown as being of the same age, it would appear that James was also known as Jasper.  There is no reference at all to a daugher Isabel, who is found in the 1860 Census and is identified in her marriage record as a daughter of John M. & Sarah Pritchard.

         At the age of seven, John Jett Jr. moved with his parents to Barbour County, where they purchased a farm.  In 1849, he and his wife moved to Ritchie County, where they lived until 1875, moving then to Roane County, WV.  They had ten children, three of whom died in childhood.

        

         1850 Census, Ritchie Co, Virginia (now West Virginia), enumerated on Sep 6 1850:

         John Jett, 37, farmer; Mary, 34; Wesley, 13; William, 10; Jacob, 8; Eliz, 6; Sylvester, 4; Alvin, 2.

20.    William M. Watson (8.Sarah8, 7.Thomas7, 6.Thomas6, 5.Christopher5, 4.Thomas4, 3.Christopher3, 2.Thomas2, 1.Thomas1), b. ca 1818 in Harrison Co, (W)VA,[118],90,66,34 d.

         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.

        

         1850 Census, Doddridge Co, Virginia (now West Virginia), enumeratd on Jul 23 1850:

         William Watson, 31, farmer; Nancy, 30; Malinda, 8; Sarah, 6; Juliet, 4; Martha, 1; Mary, 1.

         (Note:  The adjoining household reported was that of John G. Hart & his wife Malinda Ann Nutter, sister of William's wife Nancy.  Ninety-six years later, in August 1946, William & Nancy Watson's great-grandson, Armand Leon Brown, married Geneva Pauline Gaston, the great-granddaughter of John & Malinda Hart.)

        

         1860 Census, Doddridge Co, Virginia (now West Virginia):

         William Watson, 45, farmer; Nancy, 40; M. A. (female), 18; S. (female), 16; J. (female), 14; Martha, 11; Mary, 11; Jane, 9; Loyd, 8; Marion, 2.

        

         1870 Census, Doddridge Co, WV (Southwest Twp):

         William Watson, 51, farmer; Nancy J, 18; William L, 15; Francis M, 12; Amanda V, 9; William E. Crichfield, 5.

         (Note:  William E. Critchfield was the grandson of William & Nancy Nutter Watson.  His father, William E. Critchfield, died in the Civil War a month before he was born, and his mother, Malinda Ann Watson Critchfield, remarried John William Wyatt in Pennsylvania two years later.)

        

         1880 Census, Roane Co, WV (Spencer District), enumerated in June 1880:

         William Watson, 61, farmer; wife Ellen J, 50; dau Amanda V, 19; granddau Eva I (?), 7.

        

         He married[122],[123] (1) Oct-22-1840 in Harrison Co, (W)VA,[124] Nancy Nutter, b. Feb-22-1818 in Barbour Co, (W)VA,[125] [Don Norman reports birth date as 1820.] (daughter of Andrew Nutter and Malinda Willis), d. Jun-29-1869 in Doddridge Co, WV,[126],40,[127] census 1850, 1860 in Doddridge Co, (W)VA.

        

         Nancy: 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 of her siblings (Harrison and Doddridge Counties) 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.

         Ellen: 1900 Census of Doddridge County (Southwest District) shows Ellen J.

         Identified in obituary as Mary A. Haught, daughter of John H. Gaston and Jane Pritchard Gaston.  Basis for middle initial "A" is not known, as her middle name has been determined to be Martha and her headstone clearly identifies her as Mary M.  Conversely, the obituary of her son Marvel L. Haught identifies her as Mary Ellen Gaston, and she appears in the 1850 Census as Mary E. Gaston, age 6 months.  Her own obituary reads in part:  "Mrs. Haught was born and reared and spent her entire long and useful life on the same farm in South West District.  She was well known to many of the citizens of Doddridge County and was loved and revered by all who knew her;  she was always kind and generous to the poor and was always attentive and helpful to the citizens of her community in times of sickness and distress.  She lived a useful life, retaining her memory and optimism of life until a few days before she was called.  When her life's work was finished, she fell asleep, assuring her relatives and friends that she was prepared to the change and that all was well with her."
