Here's what I have:
1. Sara Rachel Peterswas born in 1828 in Darke County, OH.
Sara married Ephraim Henry Fisherson of Ephraim Fisher and Catherine Pegg on 23 Aug 1847 in Darke County, OH. Ephraim was born on 26 May 1822 in Galloway, Franklin County, OH. He died on 6 Oct 1888 in Darke County, OH.
2. Mahlon Peterswas born on 1 Oct 1791 in Romney, Hamos, WV. He died on 28 May 1878 in Lancaster, Fairfield, OH. He was buried in Old Rosehill Cemetery, Rosehill Darke County. He married Rachel Meredith on 6 Jan 1814 in Lancaster, Fairfield, OH.
He is buried in Paint Township cemetary Madison County Ohio_His grave located between his two
wives. For years he was caretaker at this cemetary. Mahlon died of a stomach disorder and was a Vet.
Mahlon Sr. owned land and lived several years in westyern Franklin County, OH., which is adjacent to
Madison County. He went to Darke County mid-life. Another desc., Norm Peters, says their family
legend was that Mahlon got into legal difficulties and lost his Franklin County land.
He was a Baptist minister.
Where my house now stands, and other houses around me, there once was a
Pristine Primitive Baptist Church and cemetery.
The head of this church was a Minister Mahlon Peters.
3. Rachel Meredithwas born on 14 Jul 1790 in Romney, Hampshire, WV. She died on 21 Oct 1869 in Darke County, OH.
4. Tunis Anthony Peterswas born on 26 Oct 1749 in Romney, Hampshire, WV. He died on 24 Sep 1826 in Ohio. He was buried in Turkey Run Cemetery, Fairfield County Oh. He married Francinah Adams.
Fought in the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812
He served under the name Anthony Peters (the anglicized version of Tunis) in the 1st Virginia State
Regiment, Capt. Ewell's Company, commanded by Col. George Gibson. He served at a minimum, Oct &
Nov 1777.He received Warrant #4,760 for 200 acres. See "Revolutionary War Records:, G. M.
Brumbaugh, R973.34, V 819b, V 1._
Lived along Tarecoat Creek.
From Llancaster, take State Rte. 188 west toward Circleville. The church is on the south side of the road
one-half mile east of the Fairfield-Pickaway County line. It lies one-eighth mile off the road, back a
gravel lane. It is a small square red brick building, looks more like a country school house. It has been
20 years since I was there, but I think Tunis and Francinah graves were on the right of the building as
you faced it.
This family came from Hampshire Co., WVA, and before that from New Jersey.
Tunis Peters' parents were Philip Peters and Catherine Quick who lived in or near Amwell (Hunterdon
County), New Jersey. The Peters' ancestry can be trace back to Sinn, Germany; they were also know as
Tunis and Francinah and other Peters family members, went to Fairfield Co., OH.
Tunis was a farmer.
5. Francinah Adamswas born on 18 Aug 1759 in Romney, Hampshire, WV. She died on 23 May 1839 in Ringgold Pickaway, OH. She was buried in Turkey Run Cemetery, Fairfield County Oh.
Family tradition, as reported in the published diary of William A. Ashbrook, a grandson of Tunis and
Francinah, indicates that Francinah Adams was a cousin of President John Adams, but my research
has concluded that she is descended from Alexander Adam, who emigrated from England and settled in
Woodbridge, NJ, in 1685. No relationship to the presidential Adams family is evident.
6. Peter Meredithwas born in Feb 1755 in Wales. He married Elizabeth Broadway in 1781 in Coshocton, OH.
Back to Peter Meredith, father of Elizabeth, this family went from Kent County, De. To Preston County,
Va. about 1800. I think he returned to Delaware before he went on to Ohio. I have 9 children listed for
him. Eight born in De., and one born in Preston County. He is on the census as follows:
1820 census, Coshocton Co., Ohio #025, New Castle Twp.
1820 census, Coshocton Co., Ohio #050 Jefferson Twp.
1830 census, Coshocton Co., Ohio #325 Jefferson Twp.
7. Elizabeth Broadwaywas born about 1759 in Wales.
8. Phillip Peterswas born in Jan 1723 in Readington, NJ. He died on 7 Dec 1774 in Hunterton Co, NJ. He married Catherine Quick.
9. Catherine Quickwas born on 12 Apr 1724 in Hunterton Co, NJ. She died in Apr 1807 in Hunterton Co, NJ.
10. James Adamswas born about 1733 in Romney, Hampshire, WV. He married Abigail.
11. Abigailwas born about 1737 in Romney, Hampshire, WV.
12. Job Meredithwas born in 1715 in Kent, DE. He died on 21 Sep 1793 in Petersburg Kent Co DE. He married Lydia Whitaker.
In a 7 April 1786 deed, Kent Co. Book Y page 216-217 Job and his wife Lydia together with his children
by Rebecca Davis sold 2/3 of "Maiden's Lott" 1/3 of which was purchased from Michael Greenley in
1761 (Book Q, page 74) and the second 1/3 was obtained by Job Meredith senior intermarrying with
Rebecca Davis, one of the representatives of John Davis for whom the whole plot was surveyed 22
June 1747. On the deed were Davis and his wife Amelia; Peter and wife Elizabeth; Job Junior; Rachel
and her husband John Keys (all of Kent Co., DE).
Source:Deed recorded Kent Co. Book E-2 page 264.
Job Meredith first appears on Kent Co. tax rolls in 1751. If age 21 then he born about 1730 or earlier.
Job’s father Robert Meredith appeared on the first Kent Co. DE tax list of 1726 until his death in 1767 so
it is presumed that Job was born in Mutherkill/Murderkill Hundred of Kent Co., DE. Probate records of
Kent County 17 Oct 1793, show Letter of Administration to Lydia Meredith, widow of Job Meredith dec'd.
Shortly before Job’s death in 1793, he received land from Thomas Moor son of Joseph Moor deceased
(this was land that had been sold by Joseph Moore to Robert Meredith in 1747, but Moore and Robert
Meredith had both died before a deed was executed, thus Moore’s son conveyed the tract of about 50
acres adjoining John Oldfield and William White to Job Meredith son of Robert (Land Book C-2:69).
13. Lydia Whitakerwas born in 1751 in Kent, DE. She died in 1807 in Kent, DE.
In 1807, Lydia (Whitaker) Meredith died in Kent Co. DE. According to the Orphan’s Court proceeding
after Job Meredith’s death in 1793, Davis Meredith as the oldest son had the right to accept the land
(which had been Lydia’s Dower Right) upon the death of Lydia. However, Davis and his wife Ann
conveyed it to his younger brother Job Meredith who had remained in Kent Co.
Source:Kent County, Delaware Deed of 11 April 1808 (Book K-2:252)
Two documents prove the maiden name and father of Lydia Whitaker, second wife of Job Meredith: (a)
Will of Henry Whitaker probated 25 Sep 1794 names daughter Lydia Meredith. (b) Kent Co. Deed 29
Aug 1792 Book C-2 page 369: Job and Lydia Meredith received land inherited by Lydia from William
Whitaker. William had sold land to Isaac Whitaker but died before the deed was finalized. The land was
divided between nine collateral relatives including Lydia Meredith wife of Job Meredith.
Lydia died in 1807 per Orphan's Court L.F.F 276, 14 Aug 1807, and Job Meredith son of Job Meredith
dec'd, petitioned the court and lists the children of Job dec'd: Davis, Peter, Rachel then wife of John
Keys since deceased, Job your petitioner, Obed, [the first five by Rebecca] [the last seven children by
Lydia] Elizabeth wife of Absalom Cooper, Henry, Steven, James, David, Abner and Benjamin of whom
the said James and Henry have since died under age, intestate and without issue. Widow was awarded
1/3 and is now deceased. Davis and Peter relinquuished their share. [Davis and Peter were living in
western Virginia.] By 1808 Job was to pay the other heirs not later than 5 May 1809 for their share.
