      unfortunately some of the Aaron information is incorrect and needs updating. There is no proof [resourced] that Judith Dill or "a Philpot/t" [from the Motley DAR application] was a spouse of Abraham, Sr.. I joined the DAR after they tightened up their standards and they have changed their records to indicate this. This information is still being repeated...throughout the entries of the descendants of Abraham. His son, Isaac [my ancestor] has the same information. My 3d great grandfather Berryman Arnn, Sr [son of Isaac] is listed as having a 2d wife [which is true] after my 3d great grandmother Joanna Amanda Blair Arnn died Berryman married Mary HAMM Smith. I am positive about Mary's maiden and married name as she and Joseph Daniel Smith [who also died in 1863] were the parents of Philip Jason Smith, my great grandfather. My grandmother Willie Viola Smith was married to Nathaniel Evans Arnn, son of Berryman Arnn Sr.

    3. [S82] Wikitree,
      Abraham Aaron, Sr.
      Birthdate: 1733
      Birthplace: Landisville, Lancaster, Pa
      Death: December 26, 1818 (84-85)Pittsylvania, Va
      Immediate Family:

      Son of Jacob Aaron and Catherine Aaron
      Husband of Judith Aaron
      Father of Jacob Horatio Aaron; Abraham E. Aaron, Jr. and Isaac Aaron, Sr.
      Notes for Abraham Aaron:

      Various researchers report that Abraham Aaron, Sr. was married at least twice.No record has been found naming his wives.According to Virkus' Compendium, Atraham, Sr. married Judith Dill about 1757.This has been highly questioned by researchers.One of his descendants thought Abraham, Sr.'s wife was a Philpott. Abraham, Sr. and his family lived in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, before moving to Virginia. In 1771/72 Abraham, Sr.moved to Pittsylvania County, Virginia, where he purchased a large tract of land on the Sandy River near Franklin County.

      On 27 May 1772, Abraham Ernn (sic) purchased 210 acres on Aaron's Creek, a branch of Turkey Crock Creek for 50 pounds."Delivered to A. Aron" is written on the margin of the deed.This land was purchased from George Jefferson who was a first cousin of Thomas Jefferson.

      On 20 Jul 1779 George Ernn (sic) and Christina Soddiany gave Harmon Cook power of attorney; Abraham Ernn (sic) was named as a witness.A Daniel Aron/Aaron/Arrand also lived nearby in 1789.Possibly George and Daniel were brothers of Abraham Aaron, Sr.

      During the Revolutionary War, Abraham Aaron, Sr. furnished supplies for the Virginia Militia.On 17 Oct 1778, he furnished beef for the Pittsylvania County malitia.On other occasions, he provided bacon, forrage, brandy, and he shot two horses.He also repaired guns for the use of state troups.Abraham, Sr. subscribed to the Oath of Allegiance before Capt.Daniel Hankins in Pittsylvania County, Virginia on 6 Sep 1777.He was also a member of the Grand Jury of Pittsylvania County for several terms during the Revolutionary War. An Act was passed by the Virginia Legislature in 1779 which encouraged settlers by offering "waste and unappropriated lands" for sale at nominal prices.Abraham Aaron, Sr. patented four tracts of land from the State of Virginia pursuant to this act which offered land for 40 pounds for every 100 acres: (1) 320 acres which was surveyed on 29 Oct 1782.The deed was signed in Richmond, Virginia on 1 Jun 1784 by Gov. Benjamin Harrison (Gov. Harrison was one f the signers of the Declaration of Independence); (2) 96 acres which was issued on 10 Feb 1783; (3) 400 acres, warrant no. 10,635 issued 5 Jan 1782; (4) 220 acres surveyed 9 Apr 1802 and signed 10 Jun 1802 by Gov. James Monroe who later became a President of the United States of America. The census of 1790 reported that Abraham, Sr. was the head of household where ten individuals resided and that he owned one dwelling and three other buildings.

      Children of Abraham Aaron and Judith Dill are:

      154 i. Isaac Aaron, born 1777 in Pittsylvania, Virginia; died 1844; married Polly Walker.
      ii. Catherine Aaron, born Abt. 1758; married John Whitmel 1778.
      iii. Marry Aaron, born Abt. 1760; married Tobias Kingary 1780.
      iv. Moses Aaron, born Abt. 1762 in Pittsylvania, Virginia; married Abigail Payne 1782.
      v. Jacob Aaron, born 1764; married Judith Kearby 1790.
      vi. Abraham Aaron, born 1766 in Pittsylvania, Virginia; married Chole Pearson 1795. Notes for Abraham Aaron: When Abraham Aaron, Jr., aka Abraham Arnn, Jr., was twelve years old, the family moved to Pittsylvania County, Virginia.Abraham, Jr. married (1) Chloe Pearson 29 Aug 1795.Her surety was John Pearson. In 1804 Abraham, Jr. sold 100 acres in Pittsylvania County, Virginia, to his brother, Jacob Aaron.The deed was not recorded until 17 Jan 1814. Abraham, Jr. also married (2) Ellender, aka "Nell" and "Nellie" Perdue on 20 Sep 1802 in Virginia.Nelly signed her own consent for the marriage.The bondsman was George Arnn (sic).In 1816, Abraham, Jr. moved to the Chunky Creek area Greene County, Tennessee, and then moved to Adair County, Kentucky in 1820 or by 1824. According to"Aaron, Arnn, Aron Ancestors, A Family History" by Rev. Larry Aaron, 1987, Abraham, Jr. married (3) Senea Ragan in Tennessee.June (Powell) Orton, a family researcher, believes that Rev. Larry Aaron is confusing Abraham, Jr. with his son, Abraham Aaron III, who married Senea Ragan on 8 Jun 1829 in Greene County, Tennessee.Mrs. Orton supports her position with a deed from Abraham Aarons (sic) to Daniel Aarons (sic) dated 23 Feb 1835 which was also executed by Abraham, Jr.'s wife, Ellender (Book I, p. 379). Because there were four men named Abraham Aaron were direct line descendants, they often become confused when tracing their ancestory.For purposes of this geneology, these individuals have been named Abraham Aaron, Sr., Abraham Aaron, Jr., Abraham Aaron III and Abraham Aaron IV.Apparently, when Abraham Aaron, Sr., passed away, Abraham Aaron, Jr. assumed the name Abraham Aaron, Sr.For example, the marriage license for obtained in Adair County, Kentucky, for the marriage between Abraham Aaron, Jr.'s son, George Aaron and Elizabeth Ennis, identifies Abraham Aaron, Sr. as the father of George Aaron, who consented to the marriage. In December of 1826, Abraham, Jr. purchased 100 acres of land on Cedar Creek which adjoined the SamuelSparks' family from Nathaniel and Sarah Privet (Deed Book I, p. 348).Samuel Sparks was a son-in-law of Abraham, Jr. Jillson's "Kentucky Land Grants", Book One, reports that Abraham, Jr. received a land grant consisting of 50 acres on Russells Creek in Adair County, Kentucky, which was surveyed on 30 Sep 1826 (Book W, p. 272).Abraham, Jr. enlisted and served six months as a private in Capt. William Witcher's Virginia Company and Lieut. Joseph Williams (Pension Record).They marched to Salisbury, North Carolina, where they joined Gen. Mason's brigade or division.Then,they marched to Camden.In his application for pension, Abraham Jr. declared that he fought in the Battle of Stono, a "severe engagement".He was probably referring to a fight near the Stono River Bridge in Charleston, South Carolina which occurred on 20 Jun 1779. On 29 Nov 1832, Abraham Jr. filed for his military pension in Adair County, Kentucky; William Bradshaw and Thomas Spark, witnesses (Certificate No. 7434 issued 12 Apr 1833).He was awarded $40 a year and paid for two years in arrears and $20 for half a year. Abraham Aaron (Jr.) and Ellendar Aaron sold 50 acres of land for 100 pounds to their son, Daniel Aaron, on 23 Feb 1835; wittnesses: William Busby, George Aaron and Zachariah Collings (sic). Abraham Jr. was exempted from paying all further county levies in consequence of his infirmity and indigent circumstances on 7 Dec 1829 (Adiar County, Kentucky, Court Records, Book E,page 242) .On 2 Apr 1832, the court ordered that Abraham Aarons (sic) be exempted from all future county levies (Court Records, Adair County, Kentucky, BookE , page 330). Abraham Jr. died circa 1835 and is buried in Taylor-Wesley Cemetery, Glens Fork, Adair County, Kentucky.
      vii. Susannah Aaron, born 1768 in Pittsylvania, Virginia; married Joseph Fuller 1796.
      viii. George Aaron, born 1772; married Sarah Walker 1797.
