52 Ancestors: #16 - Fielding JOLLETT

Amy Johnson Crow of No Story Too Small has issued a challenge:  write one blog post each week devoted to a specific ancestor.  It can be a story, a biography, a photograph, an outline of a research problem – anything that focuses on one ancestor.



The supposed first son of James and Nancy Walker is my direct ancestor, Fielding Jollett, my 3G grandfather.  Since I have already written a great deal about Fielding’s legal problems, I will present “just the facts, ma’am,” but you can read about his exploits here:



Fielding was born sometime between 1795 and 1801 in Orange County, Virginia.  He married Ann Stoutemire/Stoutamoyer on December 7, 1822 in Rockingham County.  They had two known children, but the presence of a second boy under age 5 in the 1830 Rockingham County, Virginia census suggests there may have been a third child.  Ann did not live long.  In fact, she died about 1828.  Perhaps she died in childbirth.

The wife in the 1830 census is Fielding’s second wife, MaryAnn Armentrout, from whom I descend.  Whether the boy was hers or Ann’s is unknown, but he evidently did not live long.  He does not appear after the 1840 census. 

Fielding and Mary Ann had 5 known children.

Mary Ann died January 1870 of Epaulus.  Searches for this term have turned up no definition.  One possibility is that it was a misspelling of a type of skin tumor.

Following the death of his wife, Fielding lived with his youngest daughter Lucretia and her family in Rockingham County, Virginia, until he died after 1880.  She and her husband are buried in the Mt. Olivet Cemetery in McGaheysville.  It makes sense that Fielding would be there too, but if he is, there is no marker.

  1. Despite whatever exploits brought on his legal problems, I really admire Fielding Jollett's name. It sound so distinguished.

    Happy Easter, Wendy!

  2. I have been reading through the later posts and love reading the stories of the school friends. But, somehow the geek in me likes family lists. I also am interested in those who never make it to the next census. These are the forgotten people who never really existed or so it seems. I have some family that disappears and I wonder who they were and what their stories were.
