Jeremiah left a will; October 2, 1812. October 15, 1812.4.187. All estate to wife and children (no names mentioned). Execs: Michael Fox and Adam Eckfeldt. Wit: Michael Fox, Isaac Wampole.
I’m descended from his daughter Elizabeth (b 2 Jun 1797 in Philadelphia, d 5 Apr 1884).She married a John R. Bolton in Dec 1814.They moved to Charlotte, NC where John R. Bolton was the first “Chief Coiner” of the Charlotte Mint.
John R. died 4 Jul 1845 and Elizabeth moved back north where she lived with a daughter, Elizabeth [Bolton] Hollifield, first in Baltimore, later in Philadelphia.
John R. Bolton served in the War of 1812.Elizabeth received a pension as his widow.A Jerimiah Hornketh, probably her brother, gave an affidavit
I’m descended through another daughter of John and Elizabeth, Margaret Bolton, who married a Robert Shaw.Robert is one of my “brick walls.”He was born in Trenton, NJ in Oct 1816, married Margaret 6 Sept 1837.They came to Charlotte with John R and Elizabeth Bolton sone after.
Do you have anything on this line?
Descendants of the NC line are far from extinct though there are none surnamed Hornketh that I know of.A gg-grandson of Jeremiah and Elizabeth was, in fact, a mayor of Charlotte.
