Northumberland county,Virginia originally known as Chickacoan, an Indian district on the Northern Neck, lying between the Rappahannock and Potomac rivers, tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay and in 1648, organized and so named in an official act passed by the Burgesses in Jamestown, Virginia. It later was divided into three additional counties: Lancaster, Richmond and Westmoreland, was also visited in 2002 by the Boggess Family Asociation visiting many sites with group picture at Saint Stephens Parish Church, and having discussion with local historians. Cherry Point Neck, Northumberland county, Virginia, is the right bank of Potomac River, downstream from Yeocomico River, first settled about 1640. Boggess' were among early settlers, apparently locating at headwaters on, Bogess Cove, north of Wrights Cove, west from Glebe Creek and east from main road of Cherry Point Neck shown on 1857 Plat of Wheatland, page 312, Vol I of Fox & Smith's books.
Records found, then published in "Baugus, Boggus, & Boggess Footprints On The Sands Of Time", suggest others respected Henry, so, he may have been a legal advisor of sorts, possibly a parish constable at one time handling wills etc.. Upon his passing, ca 1727, his real property was split three ways, widow Mary taking middle tract.
Following Henry's demise, widow Mary seemingly had a problem attending church as required under English rule.
Mary's will included seven surviving children, Daughters Mary, (1710-17xx), and Ann (1723-1741), twin sister of Elizabeth who appears to have preceded her in death. Sons Bennet, (1703-1744), Henry (1705-1785) & Robert (1707-1772) --- each received "one schilling current money".
Sons Henry and Robert married sisters, Jane and Ann, daughters of Vincent and Jane (?) Cox, both becoming successful planters living and raising families along the banks of Pohick run, in Prince William county (after 19 June 1742, Fairfax), Virginia, Truro Parish. Thomas married Hannah Rust, d/o Jeremiah & Magdalene (Damourville) Rust and Bennet married Elizabeth Samford, d/o Samuel & Elizabeth (Keene) Samford.
The 1790 census for Saint Stephens Parish, shows a Henry Boggess with five white and nine black in household.
Henry and Mary were 3rd great,grandparents (from my "Our Flora Family"), by 5th son Thomas (1713-1772) to Charles Henry Boggess (H1080) (1845IN-1925OK) (D9, E21, F72, G320) common with me at my 5th (his 3rd) great,grandparents, Henry Boggess, (C2) (1680-1727) & Mary Bennett (1685-1743) of Saint Stephens Parish, Cherry Point, Northumberland county, Virginia. Charles Henry Boggess found on 1875 Kansas State census in Liberty Township, Montgomery county, Kansas, Osage Indian Territory until September 1870, where my maternal great, grandfather, John Andrew Flora (1845IN-1934KS) lived from 1868 to 1878 with wife giving birth to four children, three to adulthood, the daughter listed as: "first white child born Montgomery county", selected The American Mother of 1937, whose husband was the distingished Carl Raymond Gray, vice-chairman of Union Pacific Railroad, and my maternal grandfather born 1871. Also is found a brother in next county east since at least 1868, James William Boggess (1842IL-1892KS) in Liberty township, Labette county, Kansas, elected county surveyor 1890-1892, family buried in Oak Grove cemetery, Labette county, Kansas, a neighbor of my maternal great grandfather, John Andrew Flora, a GAR member, with his 2nd wife in 1900 Federal census.
Henry & Mary were also 6th great,grandparents, by 1st son Bennet (1703-1745) to "Uncle Charley" Boggess, J274, (1878FL-1970FL), of Chokoloskee, Collier county, Florida (grandson of F C M Boggess, CSA, H101. G18, F5, E5, D5), found earlier; Key West, Half-Way creek, Sandfly Island, Flamingo and other southwest Florida locations. "Uncle Charley" and a son, sea fishermen, are in county records as receiving honorable discharges for service in WWII, for themselves 'AND THEIR VESSELS'. (My uncle Edwin Albert Hough was a naval officer stationed at The Rod & Gun Club, of Everglade, now Everglades City, Collier county, Florida for awhile in WW II, so we learned in the 1980's when taking them there for lunch in 1984.)
My 1st cousin, S C Boggess, III (I1059a, Child 1), visited with "Uncle Charley" in the October 1968 in his home on Chokoloskee Island, Collier county, Florida shortly before his 1970 death.
