      Notes

      BIRTH-MARRIAGE: "Virginia Genealogist," October-December 1961 edition, p 150, in an article entitled "Southside Virginia Austins," by Janet Austin Curtis.

      SIBLINGS-SPOUSE-CHILDREN: "Some Recollections of David Washington Austin 1849-1939", submitted by Dollie Countiss. published in "The Southwest Virginian", Vol. III, # 18, December 1980.

      This is an extensive article and should be read by every descendant of Bartholomew and Anne. Copy in AFAOA Virginia Notebook B, pages 217+. "To begin with on my father's side, there was Bartholomew Austin, my grandfather. Bartholomew with two brothers, Andrew and Bob, came to this country from England when they were young men. Of the other two brothers, I know very little, but Bartholomew settled in what is now Grayson Co., Virginia. . . ."

      BIRTH-MARRIAGE-CHILDREN: "Some Sandy Basin Characters" by Elihu Jasper Sutherland of Clintwood, VA, copyright 1962. Copy in AFAOA Virginia B Notebook, page 205+.

      CENSUS-BIRTH: 1830 US Census for Ashe Co., NC placed his birth at 1760-1770.

      BIRTH-DEATH-SPOUSE-CHILDREN: Mrs. Mae Schokey, of Pound, Wise, VA, 1959 to Janet Austin Curtis, AFAOA genealogist, Virginia B Notebook, 323.

      RESIDENCE: In the Wythe Co., VA Tax Book, Bartholomew was taxed in 1793.

      CENSUS-CHILDREN: It would appear from the 1820 US Census for Ashe Co., NC that all 13 of Bartholomew's and Anna's children were still at home, but the census form listed two age groups in which one duplicated that already listed (i.e. the 16-18 age group is a duplication of those in the 16-26 age group - this occurring only when males between the ages of 16-18 were in the household). The 1820 census, p 3 read as follows: Bat Auston, 3 males under 10 years; 3 males 10-16 years; 1 male 16-18 (this one would also be included in the following age group): 3 males 16-26; 1 male over 45; 1 female under 10 years old; 1 female 10-16; 1 female 10-16; 1 female 16-25 and 1 female over 45 years old. The son that had already left home by the 1820 census was probably William or Isaiah. Jesse and Andrew both married after the 1820 census.

      CENSUS-RESIDENCE: 1850 US Census for Grayson Co., VA, District 19, Household #974-974, p 230 (enumerated 8 Oct 1850) lists Anna widow, and son John.

      CENSUS-RESIDENCE: 1860 US Census for the Elk Creek Post Office District, Alleghany Co., NC, Household #31-29 (enumerated 20 Jun 1860) lists Ann Austin, 80, midwife, born VA, living alone.

      DEATH: Bartholomew Austin died around 1841 at Cumberland Gap, KY, en-route to/or from visiting relatives in KY. The source for Bartholomew's death was word of mouth conversation between E. Ray Austin, Ruth Marshall Austin, and Ann Dawson Thomas, of Amelia, VA, in the late 1980's or early 1990's. This information was passed on to Ann previously, but she doesn't remember her source. NOTE: Anna Reeves was listed as a widow in the 1850 US Census (see above), so Bartholomew obviously died before 8 Oct 1850. ACTION: Death date & place must be verified.
