In looking at my records, I fail to list a son, Joshua Prewitt, Jr.Do you have a complete list of Sarah Ford (Adams)[Sally]and Joshua Prewitt's children.The children that I listed were: Mildred b. Jan. 30, 1786 d. ? married - Nathaniel Shipley b. Abt 1786 d. ?; James b. Aug. 17, 1787 d. ?; Kitturah b. May 15, 1789 d. ? married - Thomas Whitney b. Abt 1788 d. ?; Susan b. Sept. 15, 1790 d. ?; Margaret b. ? d. ? and Lucy b. ? d. ?Margaret and Lucy are questionable.
Sarah Ford Adams was the daughter of James Adams, Sr. b. 1730 Goochland Co. VA d. Mar. 15, 1789 Fluvanna Co. VA and Cecily Ford b. 1735 Goochland Co. VA d. Feb. 10, 1815 Fluvanna Co. VA.They were married 1751 Goochland Co. VA.Cecily's parents were: Thomas Ford b. 1700 d. ? and Keturah Sarah Wynne b. ? d. ?James Adams, Sr. served as Justice of Peace, Albemarle Co. VA 1771-1773 and was a militia soldier in John Smith VA Company of Regulars.He was a part of the Cherokee Expedition of 1760 until the end of that campaign.Cecily Ford's name appears in the Master Index to the Huguenot and index to the Vestry Book of King William Co. VA 1701-1750 published in 1986.This would give some indication that she may have been a Huguenot family Faure(French spelling of Ford).In 1700, four ships arrived in the mouth of the James and Rappahannock River's, east of present day Richmond, VA.French Huguenot's, having fled religious persecution, had lived in England and done services for the King.They were granted lands in the New World for a permanent home where they had freedom to worship as they pleased.West of Richmond, VA, they founded a colony on the site of a village deserted by the Monacan Indians.This is a society of the descendants of that colony and French Protestants who came to the Virginia colony before 1786.On Oct. 21, 2000, the society celebrated 300 years since the Huguenot's came to Manakin in the Virginia colony.
I would appreciate the ancestral information you have on the Prewitt's mention previously.
