3. Husband of Mary2 Markham of Lee Co. VA (Collector1) (#8008) was born around 1775.

He married Mary (Markham). (Mary (Markham) is #8009.) Mary was born circa 1777 in North Carolina. In 1840 the US Census probably enumerates Mary at 63 years of age as a resident of the household of William Markham in Lee Co, VA.(8) She was listed as a household member of William Markham's house in the Census of 1850 in Lee Co, VA.(9)

Researcher Beverly Mathews has speculated that this may be Abner Markham who was in Bedford County, VA in 1785 and Burke Co. NC in 1790.

Third Generation

7. Son of Ancestor3 Markham of Lee Co. VA (Ancestor2, Collector1) (#7972) birth date unknown.

This is a collector for Markhams of unknown parents who were found in the 1850 census of Lee Co. VA.

Son of Ancestor Markham of Lee Co. VA had the following children:

9. Josiah3 Markham of Lee Co. VA (Ancestor2, Collector1) (#7971) was born between 1776 and 1794. Josiah died probably before 1845 in maybe, Lee Co, VA, at age unknown.

He married Mary (Polly) Beals 10 Jan 1815 in Bedford Co, VA.(11) (Mary (Polly) Beals is #8002.) Mary was born 13 Oct 1795 in Botetourt Co, VA.(12) Mary was the daughter of Jonathan Beals and Elizabeth McGuire. In the Census of 1850, Mary was listed as a head of household in Lee Co, VA.(13)

In the 1820 Census, Josiah was listed as a head of household in Lee Co, VA.(14) He was age 26-44, with a wife 16-25 and two boys and a girl under age 10.

In the 1830 Census, Josiah was listed as a head of household in Lee Co, VA.(15) He and his wife were in their 30s, with a boy 10-14, two boys and a girl 5-9, and two boys and two girls under age 5.

In the 1840 Census, Josiah was listed as a head of household in Lee Co, VA.(16) He and his wife were in their 40s, with a young man in his 20s, two boys 15-19, a boy and two girls 10-14, two girls 5-9, and two boys under age 5. Four persons were engaged in agriculture.

10. Samuel3 Markham of Lee Co. VA (Ancestor2, Collector1) (#7969) was born between 1791 and 1794. Samuel died probably before 1850 in maybe, Lee Co. VA, at age unknown.

He married twice. He married First_wife of Samuel (Markham). Given as parents in death notice of son William (First_wife of Samuel (Markham) is #8192.)

First_wife was born between 1791 and 1800. First_wife died before 1840 in probably, Lee Co, VA, at age unknown.

It's a puzzle to figure out just how many children Samuel and his first wife had, let alone their identities. In the 1820 census, they were age 26-44, and there was another couple of the same age in their household. Who can say to which couple the boy and four girls under age 10 belonged? Again, in the 1830 census, there are several children of various ages, of which the older ones do match the ages of the 1820 children - does this mean all of those were Samuel's? In the 1840 census there was a boy under age 5, who might be Clarinda's William, born in 1840, or he might not.

He married Clarinda (Markham). (Clarinda (Markham) is #7974.) Clarinda was born circa 1816 in Virginia. In the Census of 1850, Clarinda was listed as a head of household in Lee Co, VA.(17)

In the 1840 Census, Samuel was listed as a head of household in Lee Co, VA.(21) He was in his 50s. In his household were a woman in her 30s, a young man 15-19, a girl 10-14, a boy 5-9, and a boy under age 5. One person was engaged in agriculture.
