Page 33, No. 248: Dr. Chas. F. Nassau resides 1515 Wallace
street, Philadelphia, instead of Germantown.

Page 117, No. 161: Mary Jane Williamson, usually known as
Miss Jennie, died in Lebanon, Tenn., July 2nd, 1912.
She was a woman of noble character and a consistent
member of the Presbyterian church.

Page 124, No. 63: James Marshall Cloyd married a Miss L. F.
Sharp, near Nashville, Tenn., and removed to Harde-
man County, Tennessee, where he died in 1839, and his
wife died soon after. He left four children, all of whom
died without issue.

The assumption that Francis Marion Cloyd, No. 229,
was a son of James Marshall Cloyd, is therefore er-
roneous. In support of the above statement the follow-
ing letter is presented:

Halls, Tenn., Jan. 22, 1913.

A. D. Cloyd, M. D.,
Omaha, Nebr.

Dear Sir:

I am a grandson of John Cloyd mentioned on page 120 of
your book. I was born in 1844. My mother's name was Martha
Spencer Cloyd and not Amelia, as you have it. She married Joseph
Plelding Sharp, my father, in Fayette County, Tennessee, in 1836,
and had four boys and one girl. Fannie, the daughter, married
John M. McFadden and resides in Memphis. The sons were named
Rufus Burton, John Cloyd, James Trice and Joseph Spencer. They
are all dead except myself.

In regard to my great-uncle, James Marshall Cloyd and his
family, I can give you the following:

James Marshall Cloyd married my father's sister. Miss L. F.
Sharp. She died soon after his death In 1839. I remember of my
father's oldest sister telling me in 1869 of their death and that she
lost her first husband about the same time with the same disease.
The fourth child mentioned in the letter of great-grand-father,
David Cloyd, on page 108, a baby girl, died at a very early age. I
knew the other three children well from 1855 to 1865'. They were
Malissa, Ezeklel and James. My father raised Ezeklel In part.
He was a doctor and died in Little Rock, leaving a large estate but
no children. James, the younger boy, was a farmer and died at
Augusta, Ark., about 1870, and Malissa died at the same place
about 187^. James and Malissa both married Raineys and neither
left any children. Yours sincerely,

Jos. S. Sharp.

1839.

Page 151, No. 230: "Rev. W. P. Cloyd, one of Collin County's
earliest Presbyterian ministers, a Mason of more than
fifty years' standing, an Odd Fellow for more than
forty years, and a man of unusual literary attainments,
fell unconscious in his yard at 6 130 o'clock this morn-
ing while feeding his chickens, and died before medical
aid could reach him. Rev. Mr. Cloyd was 73 years of
age and a Confederate veteran, being chaplain of Throck-
morton Camp, U. C. v., of McKinney." — McKinney,

Clyde came to America in 1832. All his children were
born in Ireland except Samuel, who was born in Wind-
ham in 1732."
John Cloyd, writing in 1881, said that he came in 1735.

Explanation



The collection of the information in this book was the re-
sult of circumstances. Like the majority of individuals the
compiler had no thought of or care for his ancestry until one day
in 1891, he received a letter from Dr. Thos. Cloyd Craig of Eas-
ton, Kans., making inquiries about the family name, Dr. Craig
having seen the writer's name in some Medical Journal. In a very
short time a similar letter was received from Dr. W. H. Long of
Haddonfield, N. J. Following the correspondence with these
two gentlemen an interest in family history was aroused and the
correspondence gradually extended to other parties and to other
branches of the family.

The gradual unfolding of different lines of the family his-
tory proved so captivating and alluring that only business cares
have prevented more extended research. The correspondence
has been voluminous and has extended over a period of fifteen
years. Errors there are undoubtedly, but fundamental facts
have been verified by incontrovertible proof. Government,
county seat and church records have been carefully examined;
historical libraries have been visited repeatedly ; every genealog-
ical work of any bearing has been scanned, and hundreds of let-
ters have been written in the effort to confirm or secure informa-
tion. Often times conflicting testimony would be received from
equally qualified persons, increasing and making more difficult
the task of securing accurate records.

To all who have so generously assisted and co-operated with
me in the preparation of these notes, I wish to express my pro-
found appreciation. Special mention is due Dr. Thomas Cloyd
Craig, Easton, Kans., Dr. Wm. S. Long, Haddonfield, N. J., Mrs.
Ellen (Mendenhall) Beale, Parkersburg, Pa., David Cloyd James,
Madisonville, Ky., Paul C. Cloyd, Plainfield, N. J., Miss Jennie
Williamson, Lebanon, Tenn., I. Walter Basye, Bowling Green,
Mo., Dr. James W. Cloyd, Mossheim, Tenn., and others who
have assisted in every way possible.

The collection of the material for this book has been a pleas-
ure. It has occupied many spare moments. It will prove in-
teresting to but few, yet it is too valuable to perish with the
writer. Its publication is undertaken without the hope of finan-
cial reward. The pleasure it will give a few of those who read
will be my recompense. If another shall take up the work at
any point where I have left off, I shall be the more abundantly
gratified.

In writing the history of the Cloyd family in America an
effort has been made to harmonize facts with traditional reports
but not always with success. That there were three brothers
who came from Ireland is a tradition common to different
branches, of the family widely separated. That the original
immigrants or their ancestors were in the memorable siege of
Londonderry, England, in 1689, is an equally common tradition.
It has been impossible, however, to locate the particular ancestor
who underwent the terrible privations and sufferings that mark
a religious war which forms one of the worse stains on England's
history. It has been equally impossible to establish the identity
of the three brothers, as being the only and original immigrants.

It has been well established that the family came out from
Ulster the northernmost province of Ireland in which London-
derry is situated. It is evident the name is closely associated
with that of Clyde. Several instances can be adduced where a
part of a family would retain the original name Clyde and the
others take the name Cloyd after coming to America. Various
claims have been advanced in reference to the original name
having been Cloy, 'Cloyd, McCloyd, McLeod, etc., but prepon-
derance of real evidence indicates that the original name was
Clyde.

The Cloyd immigrants were pure Scotch though they were
called Scotch-Irish, a term which had its origin in the fact that
great colonies of Scotchmen concentrated in Northern Ireland,
especially in Ulster Province in the 17th Century.

NOTE

ORIGIN OF THE SCOTCH-IRISH SETTLERS OF
PENNSYLVANIA AND VIRGINIA

The following is taken from the "History of the Colony and Ancient
Dominion of Virginia ' ', by Charles Campbell, published by J. B. Lippin-
cott & Co., Philadelphia, 1860, page 423:—

' ' During the reign of Queen Elizabeth, the dissatisfied and turbu-
lent Province of Ulster, in Ireland, suffered pre-eminently the ravages
of civil war. Quieted for a time by the sword, insurrection again burst
forth in the second year of James the First, and repeated rebellions
crushed in 1605, left a large tract of country desolate, and fast declining
into barbarism. Almost the whole of six counties of Ulster thus, by
forfeiture, fell into the hands of the king. A London company under his
auspices, colonized this unhappy district with settlers, partly English,
principally Scotch — one of the wise and salutary measures of his feeble
reign. The descendants of these colonists of the plantation of Ulster, as
it was now called, came to be distinguished by the name of Scotch-Irish.
Archbishop Usher, who was disposed to reconcile the differences between
the Presbyterians and Episcopalians, consented to a compromise of them,
in consequence of which there was no formal separation from the estab-
lished church. But it was not long before the persecutions of the house of
Stuart, inflicted by the hands of Strafford and Laud, augumented the
numbers of the non-conformists, riveted them more closely to their own
political and religious principles, and compelled them to turn their eyes
to America as a place of refuge for the oppressed. The civil war of
England ensuing, they were for a time relieved from this necessity. Their
unbending opposition to the proceedings of Cromwell drew down upon
them (1649) the sarcastic denunciation of Milton. (Milton's Prose Works,
i. 422, 430, 437).

The persecutions that followed the restoration (1679) and after-
wards, at length compelled the Scotch-Irish to seek refuge in the New
World, and many of them came over from the North of Ireland and settled
in several of the colonies, especially in Pennsylvania. From thence a por-
tion of them gradually migrated to the western parts of Virginia and
North Carolina, inhabiting the frontier of civilization, and forming a bar-
rier between the red men and the whites of the older settlements. The
Scotch-Irish enjoyed entire freedom of religion, for which they were indebted
to their remote situation ' '.

There was an exodus of Scotch-Irish from Pennsylvania to Virginia
which began about 1732. They were good Presbyterians, and as soon
as they had built their houses they proceeded to build churches; and the
"Tuscarora Meeting House", was near Martinsburg, and the "Opeqnon
Church" a little south of Winchester. The first Presbyterian minister
settling west of the Blue Ridge was the Rev. John Craig, a native of the

9



North of Ireland. In 1840 he became pastor of the ' ' Stone Meeting
House", afterwards called "Augusta Church", near Staunton, Augusta
Co., Va., organized in 1738, and settled by the Scotch-Irish from Penn-
sylvania, (descendants of the Covenanters) a race distinguished for their
intelligence, energy, morality, and piety. In 1737, John Lewis, a native
of Dublin Co., Ireland, secured a grant of land covering half of what
is now Eockbridge Co. To settle up the land he imported upwards of
one hundred families from the north of Ireland, Scotland, and border
counties of England. Among the first settlers of this Rockbridge tract
was Ephrain McDowell, ancestor of Governor James McDowell and Colonel
William Campbell.

There was an unprecedented movement of these Scotch-Irish to America
in the 18th Century. The first great movement occurred during the
quarter of a century beginning in 1718. Those from Ulster entered America
by three routes, one at Boston, one on the Delaware river at Philadelphia
and Newcastle and the third at Charleston, South Carolina. In 1718 five
shiploads of Scotch-Irish arrived at Boston and settled at Londonderry,
N. H., to be followed by others, and many of those already in America
flocked to Londonderry and other towns in New Hampshire. The great
majority of the immigrants from Ulster landed on the Delaware river,
either at Lewes or Newcastle, now a part of Delaware, or at Phila-
delphia. Over 5000 landed at Newcastle in 1729. Few ships bringing
these people to America kept passenger lists, leaving it impossible to
definitely determine when any particular individual came over.

These settlers gave the land office much trouble. They persisted
in settling on any tract of land that suited them without paying for it.
They came in response to invitations for settlers and alleged, ' ' it was
against the laws of God and nature for so much land to be idle while
so many Christians wanted it to live on and raise their bread ' '.

After the fertile lands in East Pennsylvania were occupied, those who
landed on the Delaware river turned their course westward and southward,
settling in the Cumberland and Shenandoah Valleys of Virginia, about
1735, and in 1750 into North Carolina and later into Tennessee. Many
of those who settled in Chester Co., Pa. and Newcastle Co., Delaware, after
a few years pushed on into the Shenandoah valley.

The Scotch-Irish immigrants to this country were, generally speak-
ing, men of splendid physique and marked mental characteristics; qualities
transmitted to their posterity to a notable degree. They were plain,
industrious, frugal, devout and religious, possessing high ideals of morality
and integrity. Their zeal for education caused them to found many
schools and produce many school masters. Religion, Virtue and Knowledge
were their three ruling passions. They were forced from Ireland mainly
on account of their religious views and in gaining religious liberty in
Amerca they were ready to grant it to others.

The immigrant ancestors of the Cloyd family were of this class. That
they came during the flood time of Scotch-Irish immigration is indicated
by the fact that the earliest records appear during that time.
