William H. Brickey family taken around 1905-1906 in Scott County, VA. Click on the image to see a larger version

Submitted by Amy Moon, she writes;

This is a picture of the William H. Brickey family taken around 1905-1906 in Scott County, VA. I believe the back row standing from left to right are the children (and spouses) of William Brickey and his wife Nan Stone Brickey: Laura Brickey Flannery and her husband Charles Flannery, Orb Stacy and his wife Clara Brickey Stacy, James, Charlie and Pat Brickey (but not sure what order). I believe the three children on the left are John (sitting), Sarah and Mollie Brickey. These are all the children (and two spouses) of William H. Brickey and Nan Stone Brickey.
I have a separate picture of just the two little girls Molly and Millie.

I am not sure who the woman sitting between the two little girls is. Millie Stacy (Ford) is labeled. She is the daughter of Orb and Clara Stacy. I believe the woman sitting holding a baby is Nan Stone Brickey. I believe the man sitting holding a baby is William Henry Brickey. One of the babies is probably William Stacy, son of Orb and Clara. I am not sure who the other baby is, who the young boy standing is, or who the old man on the far right is.

William H. Brickey (abt 1862- 1942) is the son of Patterson Brickey and Nancy Duncan. Patterson Brickey died in 1862 in the Civil War. Nancy remarries to Bluford Southers.
Nan Stone Brickey (abt 1863- 1942) is the daughter of John Stone and Amanda Horton. William Brickey is in the 1900, 1910, 1920 and 1930 Scott Co., VA census.

Orb Stacy and Clara Brickey are in the 1900, 1910, 1920, and 1930 Scott Co., VA census.

The labeled girl, Millie Stacy Ford (abt 1901 – 1945) , is my husband’s great grandmother. Any help identifying the people in the picture is appreciated!

Thanks,

Hi William, If your dad was from Gate City chances are you are related to this Brickey Family, somehow.

I descend from the David Clinton Cocke /Jemima Leach of the Fort Blackmore area. One of the daughters from this union (Betsey Cocke) married William Brickey. David died in 1828, so I am assuming that Betsey would have been born around the early 1800’s. I am sure that this William Brickey family is somehow connected to my William Brickey family. Any info???

Hi Mark Cox. I also descend from David C. Cocke/Jemima Leach. William & Elizabeth Cox are my 3rd Gr. Grandparents thru their son Elijah C. Brickey. I would love to compare Brickey info with you….

Hi Elizabeth, Sorry it’s taken so long to respond to this. I have notes and snippets everywhere. I think I read that (info supposedly taken from a hand written margin of the Cox [Cocke] family bible) that Betsy married into the Brickey family. I guess that makes us cousins. I descend from David, the only Cox from the Henry Cocke group to remain in Lee County, Virginia after the rest moved on to Kentucky. I am in the process of filling in blanks as I find them in my Ancestry.com page(s). Although the Brickey line is not in my direct line, I still like to plug in the names when possible.

The Stony Creek Baptist Church Minutes Book records the following biography of William Brickey: “William Brickey, Sr. was born in Botetourt County Virginia, December 29, 1779. When but a youth he became a member of the Regular Baptist Church and in a short time came to Southwestern Virginia and located near the mouth of Stony Creek in Scott County. After remaining there some time he married Elizabeth Cocke daughter of David Cocke and both him and his wife became members of the Baptist Church at Stony Creek from the time of its organization, which was organized in 1801. William Brickey was Clerk and Deacon of the Church, most of the time up to his death. He raised the Clerk Ship on account of his age. William Brickey raised a large family, all of which were sons but one. His wife, whom he had lived with for many years departed this life several years before he did; and truly it might be said that they walked together like Zachariah and Elizabeth of old. William Brickey was versed in the scriptures, he often consulted with scripture and he generally gave satisfactory information, he was kind both to his family and neighbors; a good counselor in Church difficulties, was well posted in attending to all Church matters — having the scripture that were difficult to each case always for instruction. Truly it might be said a strong man in Israel has fallen. The latter part of his life was give wholly up to reading the Scripture and religious devotion, as he had divided out his land and money among his children and lived with his son William Brickey, Jr. When his friends would visit him, he would raise the subject of religion with the. . .is frequently saying he could not see why he was spared for he was doing no good that he could see, but he was patiently waiting for the Lord’s time. He generally had good health all through life. When he had his last sickness he was confined but a short time, and appeared to be fully sensible that the time of his departure was at hand, he was perfectly calm, and only inclining to go to Christ who was far better. He departed this life January 13th, 1865. We should not grieve for those that die in Christ as those that have not hope.”

I found online several years ago (and can no longer locate the web page) a biography/obituary of a William Brickey Sr. (1779-1865) that was part of the history of the Stoney Creek Baptist Church. There was also an excerpt from the book “History of Scott County” by Addington about this church that included info about this William Brickey. It said that he married Elizabeth Cox, dau of David Cox. I printed the page and noted to myself that perhaps this William Brickey is the son of Peter Brickey who is the great-grandfather of the William Brickey in my picture. There is also a picture of William Brickey’s home online at the Libary of VA.
Hope that helps!

I don’t know about the book by Addington, but I have this exerpt from the book, Who Am I? by Dr John P McConnell (October 1, 1929):
“Squire” William Brickey, Sr. was the first man commissione d as a Justice of the Peace in the north side of Scott Coun ty, Virginia. He attracted some attention when he came int o the county as a school teacher. He was said to have bee n dressed in broadcloth, beaver hat and a better type of cl othing than was customary in the wilderness of that era. H e married Elizabeth Cox. The Cox family was very well-know n and influential in that part of the country. “Squire” William Brickey became a farmer and reared a considerably fami ly. He was a very pious man and much devoted to religion. T radition says that in his old age, he sat a great part of t he time reading the Bible and that he was greatly addicte d to tobacco chewing. More than half a century after his de ath, his Bible showed marks of “ambeer” in the parts he ha d evidently read the most. “Squire” William Brickey resides most of his life in the Fort Blackmore area of Scott County, Virginia.

I believe Nan Stone was my grandfather’s sister. He was John Jesse Stone, son of John and Amanda Stone. My grandfather died before I was born. I never knew any of his family. Any info on Nan Stone would be appreciated.

Both my Materal and Paternal decendants are from Brickey. I am related to pretty much everyone posting on this site. If any of you are on FaceBook please pull up Fort Blackmore. All members are either from Scott County or have family members who grew up there and the info you can obtain for your Family records is endless.

Hi there, I also descend from John and Martha Patsy Cocke Cox. There son James Henry and Francis Estep are my 3rd great grand parents. Do you happen to know who Jemima Leach’s parents are? I’m under the impression that Elijah Leach is her father but have no idea who her mother is. If anyone can help me I would be overjoyed. Thanks so much!

The John Brickey in this picture was born in 1898 and died in 1971, and married Ethel.

Your John Floyd Brickey was married to first to Malinda Victoria Flanary, and they had 8 children. Then to Roseman Fidella (Rosa) Laney, and they had 7 children. I have looked into this Brickey branch a little because some researchers have confused this John Floyd with my great grandfather John Floyd Brickey who was born in 1870.
