301 Story of a Laurent

As written by Marge Thielke



A priest, brother of Philomene Laurent, my great-great grandmother, was Father Frank Laurent. He volunteered to help out in a leprosy epidemic and lived in a leper colony for the rest of his life. He died in the late 1880s or early 1890s.

This family has much history. Alex Grignon (Gree-no), who was my great-great grandma DeBroux's great uncle, a full-blooded Stockbridge Indian. Alex was the last Postmaster to run a Post Office at Cowdelain (Indian for "fast rapids") when Wisconsin was still a territory. He was the first Post Master there when Wisconsin became a state. Cowdelain was later called Kaukauna. Alex also tended Combined Locks from his house near the shore, which is now a museum. It is now the Grignon Museum.

Also shown in the museum is the history of Father St. Louis, brother of my great-great grandmother, Olivine St. Louis, the secretary to the first bishop of Milwaukee. He became a missionary in Colorado Springs, Colorado. There he earned money to build his church by building homes for other people. His church still stands today. He died in Colorado Springs in the late 1880s or early 1890s.

The DeBroux families and the Laurent families all sent soldiers for the Civil War serving in the Black Hat Brigade from Wisconsin. All returned home safe and sound.

308 The following was taken from "The Genealogical Registry of the Butters Family"

"Major William Vaughan, born in Wales about 1641 (son of George and Mary
(Boxall) Vaughan, and grandson of Sir Roger Vaughan), who came to New England from London about 1664. He was elected Constable in 1665, Lieutenant of Cavalry in 1672, Captain 1680, Major Commanding, 1681, one of the Council of New Hampshire 1682-1690, Treasurer of Province 1696-1698. He married Dec. 8, 1668, Margaret, daughter of Hon. Richard Cutt, son of Richard Cutt, Esq., of Grondale Abbey, Arkesden, Essex county, England.

An excerpt from the book, "A Genealogical Register of the First Settlers of New England", William was referred to as Major William Vaughan.

Will probated Nov 8 1804 in Franklin County, Virginia. Listed in Virginia Revolutionary Public Claims, Volume 1 as contributing 500 lbs of beef, 4 diets, 2 pecks of corn and 1/4 bushel oats. The certificate is dated 4/22/1782 in Bedford County, Virginia.



From Kith and Kin of Boone County, West Virginia, Volume VIII, published by the Boone County Genealogical Society. The Thompson Family of Boone County, W. VA. by Ida Mae Thompson and Sigfus Olafson.



"His (William Thompson's) maternal grandfather, William Toney, Sr. was a daring frontiersman of Bedford County, Virginia, who in spite of the danger of Indian attacks, went far into what was then the wilderness to dig ginseng, whose root is so highly prized by the Chinese, and is said to have established a camp for this purpose on Mossy Creek in present Fayette County by the late 1770's. While the writers have seen no evidence of the Mossy Creek camp, there was no doubt about him having established such a camp on Clear Fork on Big Coal River in present Raleigh County by 1784, as it is mentioned in surveys made that year. In these surveys, Clear Fork is called Toney Fork. It is evident that William Toney, Sr. and his sons knew Big Coal River well at least as far down as present Racine, and it is presumed that they had side camps there and dug ginseng in the area.



In 1787, a man named John Smith made land entries on Big Coal River that included practically all the larger areas of bottomland between present Whitesville and Racine, and had them surveyed. He sold on of these to John Toney, a son of the William Toney, Sr. mentioned above, and the rest to Gen. John Preston. John Toney applied for a patent on the entry he had bought, as did Gen. Preston for this purchases. The entry bought by John Toney began just above the mouth of Joes Branch and ran down Big Coal River nearby to Toneys Branch. It contained 384 acres. At That time, Montgomery County included all of West Virginia that lies south and west of Kanawha and New Rivers and these transactions were recorded in Blacksburg, Virginia, which was then the county seat of Montgomery County.



John Toney appears to have retired from his ginseng digging soon after this and settled where East River enters New River, a short distance south of the Virginia-West Virginia border, where he became a prosperous farmer. Kanawha became a county in 1789, and although Indians still made occasional raids on this area, John Toney decided that a settlement should be made on his 384 acre tract and sent a Toney family there to occupy it. Several traditional accounts of this first attempt to make a settlement in what is now Boone County exist in the Toney family, but are not in agreement with each other. All say that the family was forced out of its home and took refuge in the Leonard Morris fort in present Marmet, because of Indian raids or the threat of Indian raids. These came to the Kanawha Valley but the family remained in the fort until they were over and then went to their Big Coal River home. They found that the Indians had burned their house and destroyed their crops, so they returned to present Virginia. The appearance of Daniel Toney in Kanawha County records in 1792 and his disappearance soon thereafter lends credence to this tradition. John Toney got his patent for the 384 acre tract in 1794 and sold the land in 1799.



Sporadic Indian raids on the Kanawha River settlements continued through 1793 and 1794, but in the latter year Gen. Anthony Wayne gained a great victory over the Indian tribes at the Battle of Fallen Timbers in Ohio. By the Treaty of Greenville, made in 1795, the Indians agreed to migrate to the West and they actually began that movement in 1796. No Indian raids were made thereafter on any part of West Virginia, but it took some time for people to realize that the Indians were actually gone and would not be back. Thereafter, people began settling in Boone, Logan and adjacent counties.



Turning back to the Toney's, we learn that the Will of William Toney, Sr. was probated in Bedford County, Virginia, in 1804. From it and other sources, we learn that he was married three times and had 15 children. All of his children who are mentioned in this article are from his third marriage, which was to Margaret Sutherland.



Bedford County records also tell of the marriage of Averilla Toney, daughter of Willaim, Sr. and Margaret (Sutherland) Toney, and William Thompson. Not much is known about this William Thompson except that he was a native of Fairfax County, Virginia, and he is said to have been a soldier in the Revolutionary War. Merle Rummel of Indiana and Elma Henning, Rt. 5, Box 441, Dayton, Tennessee 17321, have recently published a history of the Toney family, a very fine book from which much of the material in this article has been taken. They indicate that the above William Thompson died in Franklin County, Virginia in 1825 and that Averilla died in the same county in 1845. But , it is the opinion of the writers of this article that this William Thompson died by 1800, or soon thereafter, and that his widow Averilla, also known as "Eva" or "Avey", thereafter spent many years in Boone County, a possibility mentioned in the book referred to above.



The writers do not know when the sons of William Toney, Sr. returned to Big Coal River, a stream familiar to at least some of them from their younger days when they were digging ginseng. At least three of them came to the Toney Branch vicinity, William Toney, Jr., Carey Toney and Pointdexter Toney. William, Jr. soon went on to Guyandot River, where he died in 1811 and left a number of descendants. Carey Toney went on to Ohio."



The parish register of St. Peter's Parish, New Kent County, Virginia shows, "William Moss, Bastard son of Mary Toney" was born GEN: June 28, 1737.

Chloe Niccum (1917) says he had a sister ( who married a Moss) and a brother who had migrated to Georgia. (Colonial Georgia claimed a wide area of adjacent SC), So they could have lived in Pendleton Co,.SC or in Franklin co., Georgia with other Toneys.



From history of Toney family by Elma Henning

William Toney lived in Franklin co., Va in 1760. I don't know whether he was born in Virginia or not, He had one brother and one sister who lived in Georgia. I don't know whether there was any more in the family or not. William was married 3 times. His first wife was mother of one son, Littleberry. I think he lived in Georgia. the second wife was the mother of 2 daughters, Mary and Elizabeth. One of them married a man named Dudley Street. I think they also lived in Georgia. The 3rd wife's name was Margaret Sutherland. She was the mother of 12 children, 8 sons and 4 daughters. One daughter's name was Eva, she married a man named William Thompson. They both died in Virginia. Rebecca married a Joshua Ferguson, they also died in Virginia. Susannah came to Union county, near the Ohio line in Indiana where she died. Hannah married Mathew Peters and came to Ohio, They both died of cholera in 1832. Their sons names were John, William, Poindexter and Carey (twins), Edmund, Harrison, James and Jesse. John went to Georgia and married his cousin , Mollie Toney and brought her back to Virginia where they lived in Giles county, they were wealthy. their only son's name was Johnathan. He married a girl named Caperton and they had several girls and one son named Washington. He had one daughter and she married a man named tanner and they lived at Huntington, W Va. I don't know what William wife's name was, I think there were several boys in the family and I don't know what county they lived in. Poindexter lived in Hanowa county and there was several children in his family. Carey, our grandfather, and his family came to Ohio in 1819. They had 9 sons and 1 daughter. One son died in Virginia, one went to Missouri. Edmund came to Ohio then moved to Northern Indiana. some of his family live in Michigan and some went on west to Iowa. Harrison died a young man. Jesse came into Ohio then moved to Northern Indiana. Some of his family live in Michigan some in Iowa. James lived on the old farm where his father raised the family. I think his children were all girls. I don't know if any of them are living or not (1979)



The first Toney we have record of is William Toney, indentured servant to David Williamson, on the James River 1654. We have records of some of his descendants but as yet cannot connect them to our Toney line. By ages, he would be grandfather or great-grandfather of our William Toney. William Toney Sr, the first known ancestor of this family, was born about 1727, near the James River in the Piedmont area of Virginia, probably in that area now included in Powhatan or Buckingham county.

Our records say that he had one sister who married a Moss and one brother, at least, both of whom may have followed the pioneer migration from Virginia to Georgia.

Pierre QUINET, Tisserand, deceased in 1779, was then "approximately" fifty years old. He would thus have been born about 1725-1730... In Contréglise, cradle of the QUINET, only one couple have children for this period: it is the couple George QUINET ("tissier of profession") and Catherine GENÉVOIS, from which the son Pierre François was born in 1725. It is thus almost certain that this Pierre François is that which married with Thérèse DART before 1757, - in another parish that in Contréglise. Their children were born there, and the known first is Antoine, born on June 14, 1757. Antoine, Tisserand, married Monique MORIZOT: their first child, born on August 14, 1782, is this Pierre QUINET whom we sought for a long time! The confirmation of this should be obtained at the time of the marriage of Pierre (François) QUINET and Thérèse DART.

"Members of the Michael Corrigan family were natives of County Tyrone. They were still residents of Ireland when Patrick was baptized at the age of two days in Killeeshil Parish in February, 1819. They emigrated to Canada circa 1823 where Michael initiated Upper Canada Land Petitions on behalf of himself and his young sons. Then they briefly removed to the United States, likely to New York where their son, Hugh, was born. It was said that William was born during their voyage to North America. In time, the Corrigan family settled on Brock Township, and apparently lived their throughout the 1830s. By the time of the 1852 census, Michael, Rosina and family resided in Mara on the West 1/2 of LOT 15 CON 7."

Dungannon: (pop 10,000) is a manufacturing town approx. 10 miles north west of Armagh. It lies in the parish of Drumglass and in the barony of Dungannon Middle. In medieval times the O'Neills had a large fortress built in Dungannon. The site of which is marked by the ruins of an 18th century castle. These ruins are situated just north of the market square in the center of the town. The O'Neills also founded a Franciscan friary in 1489, and this is where that Con O Neill submitted to the English and accepted the title of Earle of Tyrone from Henry VIII, while his son was given the title of Baron of Dungannon. Following the Irish defeat at the battle of Kinsale, in 1602, the town was burnt to the ground to prevent the English seizing the town. During the plantation period the lands in and around Dungannon were granted to Sir Arthur Chichester, who laid out the plan of the modern town. In 1692, it was sold to Thomas Knox. He developed the town's markets and business. Here in 1782, in the old Meeting House is where the Irish Volunteers met to set up a pressure group seeking Irish independence.



[from Hugh Corrigan IV in a letter to Brian Zalewski - August 19, 1999]

"According to the birth records, the first three children were born in County Tyrone, Ireland but the next two were born in New York State. This is probably due to the fact that the Erie Canal was being built, and Irish labor was recruited for the work on the canal. After the work was done it is my guess that Michael and Rose moved their family back to Ontario and settled in Mara Township"



"There was a rebellion in 1837 in Ontario and Michael Corrigan was among many families guilty of treason. The majority of them were pardoned and allowed to return on parole for three years after paying a security bond. Briefly, the rebellion was led by William Lyon Mackenzie against the authoritarian system, which culminated early in December 1837 with a abortive attempt to take over the government in Toronto. He had farmers joining him from all over the providence. Most of the rebels were captured or ran away as their take-over was foiled by government troops.



On a list of prisoners held at Parliament House in Toronto, December 13, 1837 was Michael Corrigan along with 312 others jailed there. Michael was arrested January 6, 1838 some weeks after the rebellion was quashed. He was released May 12, 1838 and pardoned on finding security to keep peace and be of good behavior for three years." 
CORRIGAN, Michael John (I25)
