THE CHURCH HOMESTED
CRAB APPLES,AND HICKORYNUTS,NEVER FALL FAR FROM THE TREE,<<>>BUT OTHER KINDS OF FRUIT SOMETIMES ROLL A LONG WAY.
THIS SITE IS DEDICATED TO THE DECENDANTS
OF YANKEE JOHN
CHURCH><>< N.C.IN THE 1700s
** I have heard it
said that John Church Sr, came through
Virginia, on his way to North
Carolina,++ Amos stated on his pension application that he was born in Va. so I suppose that this was the route taken by John during his migrating.
.+++John came into North
around 1750.+++ HIs first wife "Ms
Stamper"gave John several children, but
have learned little about her. +++John and Ms
Stamper's firstborn,"Amos Church" fought
alongside a man named Joel Stamper, at
Battle Of Kings Mountain. (Revolutionary
War) perhaps Joel Stamper was Ms
relative.+++ My G-G- Grandfather Joel SR, Church was born to Yankee John Church, and Jane Andrews, somewhere around 1880***It could be that Joel Sr. was named after the Joel Church that was killed in a massacre which followed The Battle Of Wyoming,(Wyoming PA,1778) who is believed to have been a son of Benjamin Church from Mass. Our Joel Church,son of John Sr.
born in Wilkes County, North Carolina to John's second wife Jane Andrews.
Tree of Yankee John Church grew quiet
large,its branches spreading around the
world.+++ This site is most particular
the branch that spread into Virginia,
West Virginia.+++ I apologize in advance for
mistakes that I might make. I don't want to show anyones relatives in a bad light, but remember!! these are my relatives also.
If you have
questions,or comments, theres a place
in my Guest Book,+ and a place a the bottom
of some of the Pages where you can email
me+++I love to hear
from cuz,s. I have already found many of them. It is almost beyond belief how large the Tree Of Yankee John has grown. I know that even though I have found many Cuz's, I have hardly begun. If any of your Church ancestors came from NC, Tenn. VA, KY, or WVA, its very likely that you connect into this tree also
