You have done a lot of research on your family links.I have noticed that the name "Mourning" was a popular name in the colonial days.When I mention it today, it raises questions as to who would name their child "Mourning?"It's a pretty name to me!I've never checked on the Wilburn, Scott, Blevins or Bowles families.I have spent a lot of time on the Lewis and Woodson family links to my Adams line.The Woodson's are very interesting in a historical setting in early VA.Dr. John Woodson came over as a surgeon with the British army shortly after Jamestown had been founded.He brought his wife, Sarah Winston.One day in 1644 while on his way home from seeing a patient, he was killed by Indians.The Indians attacked his home where his wife, two sons and a shoemaker faught to protect.These two son's would forever carry the nickname, "Potato Head."They were hidden in the basement potato bend, while Sarah (Winston) Woodson and the shoemaker, Ligon, proceeded to kill the attacking Indians.The shoemaker, Ligon, killed seven Indians with one shot using a eight foot muzzle loading rifle.This rifle is the proud possession of the VA Historical Society in Richmond, VA today.Sarah killed two Indian's coming down the chimney, one with boiling water and the other with a meat spit at the fire place.She had apparently learned the role of a frontiersman living in the wilderness of the VA colony.The Woodson link also connects the Adams to Dolley Madison, wife of President James Madison; President Zackary Taylor; General Robert E. Lee, CSA; Col. John S. Mosby, CSA (often referred to a the Gray Ghost by Union troops.He was a raider in VA and disappeared like a ghost.They were never able to capture him) and America's most famous outlaw, Jesse Woodson James.Years ago, an uncle of mine asked what would I do if I found an ancestor who was hanged or in jail?I asked him, "are there any?"He just laughed, but if he were alive today, he would be smiling and say, "I told you so" in learning about the Jesse James link.I would like to hear more about your links to the Lewis and Woodson families.
