Query: BRANSON, VAN LEER, WAYNE Seeking information on William M. Branson, born 29 June 1684,

Berkshire, England. Came to Pennsylvania about 1708. Married three times. I am descended from his 2nd

marriage (to Mary Tate) through his daughter Mary Branson, who married Dr. Bernhardus Van Leer. Dr. Van

Leer came to Pennsylvania in late 1690's. He was born 1686 died 1790. From him I am descended from Capt.

Samuel Van Leer who married Hannah Wayne, oldest sister of Major-General Anthony Wayne ("Mad

Anthony"). Hannah Wayne' s father was Isaac Wayne, and his father was Capt. Anthony Wayne who came to

Pennsylvania in the late 1600' s from Ireland (although of English descent). Have much information on these

families, but am trying to flesh out background and fill some gaps. Will swap what information I have for what

you have.

Posted by Chris Wayne <> on Thu, 08 Oct 1998

Surnames: Wayne, Talbot, Wain, Waine

I've been able to search back to my gx3 grandfather (1830 MO). At that time, there were three Wayne families living

in Missouri. I would like to place these families within some kind of relationship, if possible. In a book entitled "Pioneer

Kentuckians w/ Missouri Cousins", I know that all three families had spent some time in Kentucky. With the aid of the

1810, 1820 and 1830 Censuses and other sources, I've made some observations and assumptions of how they are

related. I am now trying to prove or refute my theories. If anyone is interested, you can go to the Kentucky.doc URL

to see my conculsions (the document is in word97. If you can't read that format, Email me and I'll send you a txt

document. Please note that this is a work in progress).

I have a marriage record:

John W. Wayne & Miss Eliza Talbot (daugther of Major Hugh Talbot of Millersburg, Bourbon Co., KY) m. Mar 1

1818 (KY reporter 3/25).

I believe that this is my gx3 grandfather and grandmother that eventually settled in Callaway Co., MO. I also believe

that his mother is the Judith Wayne listed in the 1810 Census. I know from the 1850 Census that he was born in PA,

but I have no idea who his father was. Unless there was another Wayne family group in PA prior to 1800, I believe

that my line is part of the Wayne family that originated in Easttown Twp of Chester Co., PA - the same family that the

Revolutionary War General "Mad" Anthony Wayne came from. I have a family tree (that doesn't include my line) that I

am currently trying to compare those "bodies" living during the 1790 and 1800 Census to see if I can discover "the lost

link". As of this posting, results are inconclusive.

This is a long introduction, but is there anymore information available, focusing on Judith and John Wayne living in

Bourbon Co. between 1790 and 1830?

My SAMUEL was born in IL (according to census) around 1832. I believe it could had been Vermilion, IL. Census

states his father was born in VA, mother in IL. He did have a daughter named MARY S., b.1868, IL. Sorry I couldn't

Emily Frances married David Eskridge Love about September__ 1856 in Choctaw County Mississippi per an affidavit

filed on behalf of EFWL for a request for survivor benefits of soldiers who had fought in the War with Mexico in 1845.

DEL had filed an original request in 1888 and stated at that time that he was 63 years old so his birth would have been

about 1825. The Frances name is mentioned in family correspondence and in a document call "A history of Louisiana"

by Henry Chambers Pub 1925 by the American historical society. There can be found a biography of Charles

Herndon Love and mentions that his mother was Emily Frances (Wayne)Love. Frances has also been a name given to

various female members of our family. Emily died in 1912 and is buried in Beaver Creek cementery near Oakdale LA

with no dates on the tombstone. DEL's family came from Marengo County AL. Nothing else is currently known. LwL

I am also researching the Wayne family from "Mad Anthony". The dates I have on

Temple Wayne are that he settled in Andrain County, Missouri in 1827 and died in 1864,

aged 67 years.

I believe if this is the same link Alfred R Wayne was Temple Waynes son.

Temple Wayne and his second wife Elizabeth Gregg had seven childred.

They were Lucy, George, Elizabeth, Emily, Alfred, Franklin and Martha.

I am researching the link of George, which I believe is Alfreds brother.


James Carns () on June 26, 1998 at 10:21:00:

I have information on Temple Wayne. I tried to send you an email, but my server was unable to locate your address.


Beneby Haynes () on January 26, 1998 at 19:28:42:

Greetings to Wayne Researchers. I have some gaps and wonder if any thing I have fits with anyone's records. I think

my names are right but the dates are not. Here goes:

My gg grandmother was Celestia Wayne (Burnside) (Coquillette). She was born Jan. 25, 1825 in Cooperstown,

Ostego, NY, died Feb. 18, 1920 in Texhoma, OK. My gg grandfather was James Coquillette b-Nov. 7, 1816 in NY

City, NY, d-Nov. 14, 1891 in Havelock, Pocohontus, Iowa. They were married June 1,1852 in Franklinville,

McHanry Co., Il. Celestia had 3 brothers, Harley, Daniel and John. I believe their parents were Anthony Wayne and

Thankful Platt. Anthony's parents were John Wayne and Isabel Burnside.

Looking for parents of Ernest b. 6/2/1884, MD (date from SSDI, family says

married; father UNK. The mother is the Wayne. She later married a man named ? Torbert

and they had two daughters-Clara & Margaret

Ernest's mother was Mary Martha Wayne - no other info known at this time. She was probably b abt 1865.


Chris Wayne on October 16, 1998 at 02:09:16:

I've noticed this conflict with the lineage of Gabriel, son of Capt. Anthony Wayne. In one line I have:

1) William, son of Gabriel, married Esther Trezevant in Charleston, SC 8 May 1777 and had five children: Francis

Asbury, Jacob, Elizabeth,William, and Gabriel William

2)William Collye, third child of Gabriel, born 1753. Had two sons, Thomas Samuel (b1799) and Anthony(b1800).

Any ideas on what happened here?


Subject: Re: Ephraim Wayne

Body of Message:

My line traces back to the Waynes of Callaway Co. MO. While doing this research, I noticed that a Wayne family

settled in Audrian Co. (north) and one in Boone Co. (west). All three families had many, many, many children. In order

to find which children belong to my line, I've had to reseach all three :-) I have no proof yet, but I think that all three of

these families can trace a common ancestor back to Capt Anthony Wayne. Unfortunately, I don't have as much on

Ephriam and his family as I do on the others.

Ephriam settled in Howard Co. between 1810 and 1819. He came from Madison Co. KY. I have a 1797

Montgomery Co. tax listing for Ephraim. I don't know if this is a typo (got confused with Madison - a neighboring

county) or if he had a presence in Montgomery as well?? I know from this tax list that he had no acres taxed and that in

1797 he was over the age of 21. I also have a tax listing for Ephriam Wain in Madison on 12 Feb 1800. I've found

many typos with the name (Wain, Waine, Wayn, etc.), but they're all the same people.

Ephriam and Ellenor (Eleanor), as far as I can tell, had only one son, William L. William was 27 in 1820 when he

became a candidate for Howard County Coroner. Ephriam dies prior to 1819 and that part of Howard Co. becomes

Boone Co. Ellenor lives with William until her death prior to 1840.

I can not find anything on William's wife, except that she was older than him and she dies prior to 1850. They had six

children (?): Archibald H. and one other male. Amelia P., Eliza J., Sarah E. (?) and one other female. In 1838, William

adopted Jesse and Susan Johnson (are they the "other" male and female?). By 1850, William is living with a Jonathan

and Sarah E [Wayne?] Grammer and he dies 13 May 1857 in Sturgeon, "An old citizen" (Columbia Weekly

Temple Sr. settled in Audrain Co. in 1827. His father is John Wayne of Campbell Co. VA (?). Temple was a roamer,

he was more at home out in the wilderness, hunting, fishing etc. His first wife was Lorinda Peyton, married prior to

1823 in VA or KY. They had seven children: William, Mary, Temple Jr., Joseph, Lorinda, Jane and James. Then

married Elizabeth Griggs, 12 March 1835 in Callaway Co. by Rev. Theo Boulware. They had six children: Lucy A.,

George W., Elizabeth A., L. Emily, Alfred R. and Franklin B. The 1850 Census also shows a 7th child (M.S.). Temple

Jr. then married Sarah "Sally" A. Johnson, 28 February, 1849 in Audrain Co.


Posted by Chris Wayne on October 22, 1998 at 19:19:01:

I have the following marragie record:

John W. Wayne & Miss Eliza Talbot (daugther of Major Hugh Talbot of Millersburg, Bourbon Co., KY) m. Mar 1

1818 (KY reporter 3/25).

I believe that this is my gx3 grandparents that settled in Callaway Co. MO in the 1820s. I'm interested in tracing both

lines back, but I only have information on the Wayne side. The Wayne line should end up in PA prior to 1794. This

family lived in Bourbon Co. by 1810. I believe that Judith is John's mother and he had at least two sisters, one being

Elizabeth (b. 1794 PA and married John Jacob? Duncan in 1813) and one brother, Thomas (b between 1800 &

1810). John was born in 1792 PA.
