Notes for JOHN BRUCE:

Information from Ancestory.com submitted by Thomas G. Untiedt:

The following is an excerpt from the paper "Bruce: Historical Papers #2" by Michael V. Stambach-Bruce, ORB, 1991, (who I think is now deceased).

"It is increasingly apparent that the Bruces of Dark Run are descended from the 17th century Bruce family of the Northern Neck of Virginia. My own recent discovery has proven a connection and probable descent of the Elijah Bruce of Culpeper Co., from the family of Henry Bruce, son of William Bruce, d. before 14 Dec. 1683."

"Of the numerous lines descending from the earlier Bruce families of the Northern Neck there is one in particular which, in my opinion, is the best candidate for identification as the progenitor of the later Bruce families of Orange, Culpeper, Albemarle, and other counties. That is JOHN BRUCE, son of Henry Bruce. This John Bruce may have been the same who was erroneously identified by Philip Alexander Bruce as the childless son of GEORGE BRUCE, 1650-1715."

"It seems likely that JOHN BRUCE of Dark Run married at least twice, MARGARET FRAZIER being his second or later wife. Although no direct evidence has been found that would allow us to determine

whether or not David and GEORGE BRUCE were sons or brothers of JOHN BRUCE of Dark Run, the evidence we do have clearly indicates a close relationship. The fact that John received two large

patents in 1735, with no record of David or George having received any patents but having lived with or

adjacent to John of Dark Run, seems to point to their dependency on John of Dark Run."

"We now know that John of Dark Run was appointed by the Court of Hanover Co., Va. to act as the administrator of the estate of Morris (Maurice) Roberts by 1734. This is found in the early Orange Co. records. Other records prove that JOHN BRUCE was a resident of Caroline Co. prior to his migration to Orange Co. We can draw from the fact that a number of the Northern Neck families left Richmond and Westmoreland Cos. at early dates and settled in Caroline Co., later migrating to Orange Co."

"Of special interest is the appearance of an entirely "new" JOHN BRUCE who, it appears, may have resided or at least owned property in Spotsylvania Co., Va. This John died before 1740. Was THIS the childless son of GEORGE BRUCE, 1650-1715? This appearance also presents a minor problem. It is obvious from this new research that some or all of the later Dark Run set had lived at Spotsylvania Co. The question is raised, "How do we know whether or not records of JOHN BRUCE during the period of 1733-1740 belong to the deceased John (by 1740) or the JOHN BRUCE of Dark Run who lived into the 1750's at Augusta Co.?" A close examination of these records may reveal that the pre-1740 records can be linked to the post 1740 records by common association, etc."

"Another possibility remains; that is, was the earlier JOHN BRUCE of Spotsylvania Co. a brother of Henry Bruce of Richmond Co., Va.?"

"The land at Dark Run, originally in Orange Co., later fell into Culpeper and eventually fell into Madison Co., Va. At some point later generations of this Bruce family, as well as members of the

QUINN, Ballard, and Watts (all intermarried) families removed to adjacent Albemarle Co., Va. where they maintained close geographic relationships."

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Michael Stambach-Bruce also has the following re this John Bruce:

"John Bruce, Planter & Merchant

b. ca 1690

liv. at Caroline Co., VA., 1732

two patents at Dark Run, Orange Co., VA

later liv. at Augusta Co., VA

= (?1) ______________?

= (2) Margaret Frazier"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mr. Stambach-Bruce was apparently convinced that John Bruce of Dark Run was married twice, Margaret Frazier being his second wife. I have not found any evidence to support this but if true Margaret Frazier is probably not the mother of all his children, possibly not any of them.

Orange Co Deed Book 3 & 4 (1738-1741)

Culpeper Co Page 46

Margaret Bruce claimed to be the wife of John Bruce, dec'd, 23 January 1769. It is said that she filed suit against someone as Elizabeth Frazier; she said that was the Sheriff's fault that she was listed a Frazier.

Augusta Co Court Judgements 1747

John Bruce is in jail as escaped from the Louisa County jail

Albemarle County Will Book 1 (1752)

This inventory of the estate of John Bruce, dec'd, was returned into Court by John Martin, the administrator thereof, and ordered to be recorded.

Notes for MARGARET FRAZIER:

Margaret Frazier may have been John Bruce's second wife.

3. i. GEORGE G.3 BRUCE, b. Bet. 1713 - 1715; d. Abt. 1800.

ii. JOHN BRUCE, b. Abt. 1718.

Notes for JOHN BRUCE:

Since the original John Bruce (born abt 1690) died in 1752, I'm assuming the following deed reference pertains to his son John. I'm not sure which one the 1781 entry pertains to but include it here so it does not get left out entirely.

Culpeper County VA Deed Book F Vol 5 page 425-426 (Aug 18, 1771)

Information on the ancestors of Emily was found on Ancestory.com via the "Untiedt Family Tree" submitted by Thomas G. Untiedt (tuntiedt@adelphia.net).

Notes for WILLIAM HENRY HARRISON PRICE:

Notes from Eva Price Brockman:

William Henry Harrison Price married Emily Bruce June 16, 1870. They had two children: George William Price and David "Elbert" Price. Elbert and George William's mother, Emily Bruce Price, died when Elbert was only 10 days old, due to complications of childbirth. His Aunt Jet and Uncle Dave, who were sister and brother to William Henry Harrison Price, raised Elbert. Neither Dave nor his sister, Jet, ever married. They lived in a house in Rye Hollow, VA on land, which was later owned by and referred to as the Odell Hudson property. I never saw the house, because it had burned years earlier, but the chimney continued to stand in the middle of a vegetable garden. I recall seeing the chimney in the late 1930~s and early 1940's.

Notes for ELIZA ALLIE ANN CROYE:

The following was told to Beth Brockman Newell by Frances Price Merrix:

She was called Allie. She was paralyzed from 3/21/1929 until the time of her death. She had a stroke, and also had a brain tumor.

Also of interest, Allie came from a "good" family. She was well-respected. She was particular and meticulous. She was a good cook and an excellent seamtress. She was not a kind person. She could be harsh. She was very pretty. She didn't encourage education. She was possessive of her children. Rumor had it that she caused the breakup of James William Price and Virginia Walters.

Notes for JAMES WILLIAM PRICE:

Note from Eva Price Brockman:

Will suffered from severe hay fever in the spring and again in the fall. It affected him with many sinus infections, watery eyes to the point that many times water streamed down his face. He was about 5'8" and always somewhat overweight. He had dark curly hair and brown eyes. He loved honey and always had several beehives around. Many people stopped by our house in the fall of the year to buy honey from the "honey man". Will was a farmer, a barber, and an insurance salesman. He was 80 years of age when he died. His death certificate says that he died of congestive heart failure. In Will's later years, he developed diabetes that required daily insulin injections. In the year 1958, Will underwent surgery in his neck due to an aneurysm or coratid artery. Will, my dad, was 36 years old when I was born. I can never remember him as a young man. As I remember him, he always seemed old and sick. Will's eyes always seemed to protrude a bit, which indicated that he probably had a thyroid problem, although I do not recall that he was ever treated. The thyroid disease seems to have come from Will's mother's side of the family (Croy). Will had many problems with chronic neck pain. (Ann recalls that Dad's pain was neck, not back.) He made many trips to a chiropractor. In his later years he usually walked with a cane.

Will was a very intelligent man. He completed the 10th grade and was accepted at V.P.I., Blacksburg, VA, but his parents were not big advocates of education and would not allow him to go. He was needed on the farm.

Will was a domineering, harsh man with his family, a church going man (a charter member of First Christian Church of Pearisburg) and a "do-gooder" in the neighborhood.
