I no longer have any copies of my book printed.I ended up with about 600 pages of information, a lot of it from people who was researching along with me, and with books I purchased on Brickey/Bruner/Cox/Compton/Ramey (Remy).
I do have a book on Remy/Ramey which is about 2 inches thick that someone sent to me.However I don't know how many mistakes are in it.I don't have enough time to verify any of it down from Dorcas Brickey Ramey.
I have to take this computer in tomorrow, and it may be a week before I get it back.In the meantime, I will use a laptop to get emails, but no access to my files.I know that there is a will that mentioned Darchus (Dorcas)I've seen the will, but will have to look it up (typed version)
Here is one of the notes I have made:
Her birthdate is a guess.If she married in 1740, and Daniel Ramey was
born in 1720, unless she was older than he......
THIS IS ONLY A GUESS.She may have been married at age 13 for all we
James, Daniel and David Ramey were in Southwest Virginia by the time of
the Revolutionary War, as John Floyd surveyed land for David Ramey there
I have not done extensive research on the Ramey's and have had to rely on
Published sources, and the generosity of other researchers.The earliest
records All agree that Dorcas Brickey married Daniel Ramey, which is
often spelled (and probably correcty..) REMY.(Spelled "Darchus" in some records)
PLEASE DO NOT ACCEPT ALL HERE AS FACT.IF YOU ARE RESEARCHING THIS LINE,
PLEASE USE THIS ONLY AS A GUIDE.
The following is from John R. & Helen (Creger) Nielsen's "Brickey
Slinker-Houlette Families of Virginia"1980, and her source was Remy In
America, and Comptonology.
The Ramey family were Huguenots and they were in Virginia by 1671.Jacob
was from Lorraine, France.They fled duing the Huguenot persecution in
about 1654, going to England and marrying there to Francoise Halbat.
They left England for Virginia, and his wife, Francoise died at sea.
After landing, Jacob married to Mary Marmaduke (Marmaduke Miles in some
records).It is believed that all his children are by Miles.
Some information has been corrected by R. R. Ramey and Betty Conant.
Some records list another son, William, which was not in our Brickey
records, but do have a typed extract of information on Daniel's.
William Ramey, father of this Daniel Ramey, left a will, and Daniel
inherited the estate after his mother Catherine died.Since Daniel
inhertited, we can assume he was either the oldest child, or the other childrenwere
deceased.I do not have a copy of this will.
Richmond County, Virginia Deed Book 14, p. 335-6, Oct. 31, 1774
Job Thomas, of Lunenburg Parrish, Richmond County, Va. Richard Willson of
Bule (Bute) Co., Province of North Carolina, Darcas Ramey of the county
of Dumore, Deed to John Reynolds of Cople Parish, Westmoreland county,
Wheras JOHN BRICKEY late of the said Parish of Lunenburg and county of
Richmond died posessed of the Fee simple Estate of 50 acres of land, be
the same more or less, and without making a will, and left behind him a
widow (who afterward intermarried with Thomas Russell her second and last
husband, who is likewise dead) and five daughters to wit:
MARY who intermarried with the said Job THOMAS and died without issue.
DARCUS (a party to these Presents) who intermarried with Daniel RAMEY,
who is likewise dead.
ANN who is intermarried with Thomas WILLSON and is since dead and left
issue--Richard Willson (a party to these Presents)
SARAH who intermarried with John MULLENS, and is since dead and left
issue--Thomas Mullens who is now under age, and BETTY who intermarried
John REYNOLDS (one of the parties of these Presents) and wheras the said
widow Sarah Russell hath never claimed her Thirds of the said fifty acres
of land, be it more or less, nor there hath been no Division of the same
among the above named five children, daughters and co-heirs.
Now this indenture Witnesseth:All our parts and rights to that
undivided messuage tract, parcell or tenement of land, situate lying and
being on Malcahoke alias Minioken Swamp and bounded by the old Glebe land
to the lands of Thomas Beale, Gent. (being the land wherein the said
Sarah Russell on liveth) in the said Parish of Lunenburg and county of
Richmond, containing by estimation fifty acres, be the same more or less."
I find the dates in the record below hard to believe, as far as the dates
are concerned.Perhaps the years are correct, but were they all born on
Feb. 19th?Perhaps this Record was made to correct the fact that their
birth's took place, and was never officially recorded, and the informant
did not have the exact dates.I wonder why Dorcas was not included here?
State of Virginia, County of Richmond, North Farnham Parish Register
p. 7 Born Anne, daughter of John and Sarah Brickey, Feb. 19, 1726
(on page 8 this date is given as Feb. 10, 1726)
page 10 Born Betty daughter of John and Sarah Brickey, b. Feb 19, 1731-2
page 11 Born Sarah, daughter of John and Sarah Brickey, Feb 19, 1728-9
page 10, John Brickey departed this life Dec. 19, 1732
I do have Dorcas Brickey Ramey as the grandaughter of John Brickey I and wife ALCE, the Immigrant, and the daughter of John Brickey and his wife Sara (Maiden name is unknown) after John's death Sara married again to Thomas Russell.
The name was and always has been BRICKEY and NOTHING ELSE HAS EVER BEEN PROVED.......It is spelled BRICKEY on ALL records that we have found.There is NO DOCUMENTED BRIQUETTE on record......altho you will find that name as Jean Briquette all over the internet, with a wife named Alce Crabbe...her name has NOT BEEN PROVED TO BE CRABBE.When you see that "Crabbe" or "Briquette" added to a record on the internet, you KNOW those people have not researched for themselves, or DOCUMENTED the family themselves...they have copied those records from someone else, or from a book by Raymond Brickey called the "Brickey Heritage:It is a GREAT RESOURCE for researching, but as all family histories, has it's share of mistakes.Raymond could not possibly document all the families in that book, he had to rely on submitters for that.I am assuming that Raymond's OWN line is as correct as anyone could get it tho.
I don't mind using someone's information from the internet.......but I try ONLY to use the submitters OWN line when I can figure it out.
I absolutely refuse to add the "Crabbe" and the "Briquette" to my records.It has not been proved, and until it is, my records remain BRICKEY. (You will find those who disagree with me on that, but that is their opinion...)
Also, any dates you might see for John Brickey I and Alce are pure speculation, no one has found ANY DATES for them.
They are from FRANCE according to the John C. Brickey notebook/Journal which is the PRIMARY source for the Brickey family.No where in the bible or journal does it say WHERE in France .......just "France".......
I have to go now, it is late....you can post messages here or email me....
