I have copies of this Will in my Documents for Nancy Ann Marilda Dortch, daughter of a John Dortch,who died 1846 in Washington Co.

The defendants, Richard Ransome Barker and his wife Sarah (Dortch) Barker, were my gggg grandparents. Sarah died in 1846 in Barnwell District. // Court of Equity Records, Barnwell District, SC. Mary Dortch et. al. vs. Richard Barker and wife. Accounting and partition. Filed Aug. 21 1821. Abstract as follows from Folks Huxford, Court of Equity Records of Barnwell Dist, SC, 1955, p. 80: // "Petitioners are Mary Dortch the elder; Mary Dortch, the younger; Henry J. Dortch, Sarah Dortch, Eliza Dortch and John Dortch, minors, by Mary Dortch the elder, their mother and next friend, and John T. B. Dortch, a minor, by John Dortch the elder, his guardian, all of Barnwell District. // They allege that Thomas Dortch the elder was the owner of a certain negro slave named Nan and by his will dated (blank) gave her to his children Henry, Thomas and Sarah Dortch. In his will he named his wife with others (unnamed) as executors. Said slave has had a daughter named Phyllis who in turn has four children. The said widow had said slaves in her possession until (blank date) when Richard Barker who had married the said Sarah Dortch, forcibly took possession of them against the will of the executrix. At testator's death he left but little property and his said children were very young. Henry Dortch has died intestate single and w/o issue. Thomas Dortch (Jr.) died sometime ago, leaving a son, an only child, the said John T. B. Dortch. Said widow Mary Dortch is now dead, and defendants refust to account for said slaves or consent to a partition. // Defendants in their answer say that the will of Thomas Dortch Sr., was dated Dec. 27, 1777. They admit being in possession of the slaves since Oct. 1820. The widow Mary has died since then; says she had possession of them 42 years, and had committed great devastavits with the estate property. They allege the will directed that the children be educated, and that the sons Thomas and Henry did receive a good plain education but defendant Sarah Barker received no education at all. They admit all the complainants are entitled to accounting except John T. B. Dortch 'who from his infancy has been reared and supported on this very property.' // From other papers in the file it appears Henry Dortch died and left a widow and three children viz: Henry Jackson Dortch, Sarah Harrell and Eliza Dortch. An account of his part in the estate is in the file. // The writ of partition in the case directed the slaves be partitioned in three equal parts, one part to go to John T. B. Dortch, one part to be divided into three equal parts with one of same to be assigned Mary Dortch the elder and the two remaining parts of said third to be equally divided into five equal parts one each to Mary Dortch the younger, Henry J. Dortch, Sarah Dortch, Eliza Dortch and John Dortch the younger. (Note: It is not explained in the writ how these parts were arrived at or why.) // The writ says that John T. B. Dortch is entitled to one-third part through his deceased father Thomas, the younger. Nothing was said in the writ about Sarah Barker being entitled to a part. It is stated that Mary Dortch the elder, Mary Dortch the younger, Henry, Sarah, Eliza and John Dortch are entitled to parts in right of Henry Dortch dec'd. This would indicate that these were the heirs of Henry Dortch who had died single and without issue. // Affidavit in the file dated Jan. 2, 1837, by John Dortch stating that he believes that Henry Jackson Dortch of Georgia has attained the age of 21."
    -- Re: Will of John Dortch, SC // Posted by: James Perrin </cgi-genforum/email.cgi?104430305> (ID *****0305) // Date: August 19, 2004 at 18:11:14 // In Reply to: Re: Will of John Dortch, SC <305.html> by Margaret Ammonsof 403 // The Thomas Dortch whose will was written 27 Dec. 1777 and is referred to in your message was a relative of mine. He was a planter who lived near the Congaree River in central South Carolina. He owned land on Mill Creek and Wild Cat Creek, both near the Congaree River in the Camden District. Thomas was a brother of my Nathan Dortch, who died in the same area earlier in 1777. Thomas seems to have moved from North Carolina a bit earlier than Nathan,being in central SC by 1771. Nathan and his neighbor and kinsman Jacob Bethany moved to SC about 1774. Jacob Bethany was a witness of Thomas Dortch's will in Dec. 1777. Neighbors of Nathan and Thomas Dortch included the Hay family (whose daughter married William Dortch), the Goodwyns, Howells, Taylors, and Bethanys, among many others. The 1777 will of Thomas Dortch lists John and James Taylor as executors, and on the 1790 census under the estate of Thomas Dortch, James Taylor is listed as the executor. // About 1790, Nathan Dortch's children left the Congaree area of the Camden District and moved to the free lands being offered by the Spanish in Louisiana. Some of their descendants are there yet, including myself. The Jacob Bethany family and others also moved with this Dortch group.
