FOUNTAIN, John b. 1790 d.1856....married Eliza KING daughter of Mary KOLB
and Captain George KING. Children: Frances E.,Elizabeth C.,Hannah Jane (wife
of John Lide HART), William J., Mary Ann, John A., and Sarah L. I'm looking
for any information on this family. Feb 1998

From: Dr. Edwin Fountain ( fountain@bulloch.net ) on 6/26/2000:  "Hello, As
far as I can make out from your information this line of John Fountain and
Eliza King is the line of Virginia Fountain Sellers Oliver, who gave me a
great deal of help. John Fountain was the son of William Fountain, the son
of Henry Fountain of North Carolina... William came south to Darlington Co.
and settled in Mechanicsville, S.C. and is buried there.

John and Eliza had:

Elizabeth Catherine Fountain (never married)

Hannah Jane Fountain, who married John Lide Hart

Mary Ann Fountain  (never married)

William James Fountain born 1831 married Mary Ann McKalin

Sarah Luezor Fountain

Martha Eleanor Fountain (never married)

John Alexander Fountain born 1836, died while away at college.

Frances Elizabeth Fountain (never Married)

Henry King Fountain born 1842, died young.

It was a kind of sad family...all the unmarried girls are referred to in
some of the local histories of the area and they seemed to have lived (I
can't remember the town)... but John built a home just outside of Darlington
and when he died, I believe a couple of these ladies may have inherited that
house.

Only two married and probably had children.....Hannah Jane and John Lide
Hart....and William James and Mary Ann McKalin. Virginia Fountain Sellers is
descended from William James Fountain and his daughter... Sarah Maria
Fountain who married Warren Hood Sellers, and these were her mother and
father.... she married Mr. Oliver....

I'm sure that if you were to contact Mrs. Oliver she could giive you any
information she has on other descendants of William James Fountain and Mary
Ann McKalin(?).... Are you from the Hart line or the William James Fountain
Line?  Virginia's address is: Mrs. Virginia Oliver, 12115 Cristina Ct.,
Fredericksburg, VA 22407

Sincerely, Dr. Edwin Fountain (E-Mail: fountain@bulloch.net )

Notes for Eliza King: 

John King and his wife Betsey and Catherine Coleman King, were dismissed
from Mechanicsville Baptist Church in SC in 1823 to move to Alabama. <>

July 24, 1824 (per minutes of the Bellville Baptist Church as copied by
Margaret Gaston):

"The church met agreeable to adjournment after Divine worship sat in
conference. A door was opened for the admission of members. First, received
REBECCA JACKSON by experience; Second, received by letter the following
brethren and sisters, viz: JOHN ELLIS and CATHERINE ELLIS, his wife; SARAH
FOUNTAIN, ELIZABETH S. FOUNTAIN, JAMES COLEMAN and CLARESSA (King) COLEMAN,
his wife, CATHERINE KING, JOHN KING and ELIZABETH (Coleman) KING, his wife

8. Henry Fountain, born Unknown; died Abt. January 28, 1797 in Edgecombe Co.
N.C.. He was the son of 16. John Fountain and 17. Ann Bruce. He married 9.
Isbell Tate.

9. Isbell Tate, born Unknown.

Notes for Henry Fountain: Limited info on the Fountain line was provided by
Dr. Edwin Fountain to Bill King via email on 6/26/2000. See "notes" under
John Fountain and Eliza King.

Dr. Fountain's email address is: (fountain@bulloch.net)

Copied from Ancestry.com

Children of Henry Fountain and Isbell Tate were:

William J. Fountain

Thomas Fountain

Sally Fountain

Elizabeth Fountain

Henry Fountain II


Children of Henry Fountain and Isbell Tate are:

i. Henry Fountain, Jr., born June 03, 1773 in Edgecombe Co. N.C.; died
August 15, 1836 in Conecuh CO, AL; married Lucretia Booth Abt. 1791 in
Edgecombe Co. N.C; born May 10, 1775 in Edgecombe Co. N.C.; died August 06,
1847 in Conecuh CO, AL.

Notes for Henry Fountain, Jr.: 1800 Census of Darlington CO, SC (page 13 &
16 A-B) lists a Henry Fountain, whose info matches the ages of Henry and
Lucretia Fountain and their family. (3 M under 10; 1 M 16-26; 1 F 16-26).
The three males were: Green K., Wilson A. and Spearvy Fountain.

Henry and Lucretia Fountain were given a letter of 'dismission' from the
Mechanicsville Baptist Church, Darlington CO, SC on 10 December 1819
(Mechanicsville Baptist Church Minutes).This may be the time they left SC to
move to Alabama. Henry Fountain of Conecuh County, AL purchased 83 acres in
the E2 of NW4 of Sec. 4, Twp 4, Range 12 E on 3 Dec. 1823 for $103.75 ($1.25
per acre). Patent dated 5 July 1824.

_____________

I have a copy of the Fountain Family History 1660-1881 (By Lucy Wiggins
Colson).  It lists the William Fountain - Elizabeth Coleman marriage, and
also states "Henry and Lucretia Booth Fountain [William's brother] were
witnesses to William Fountain's will in Darlington County, South Carolina on
April 20, 1803."  He is also listed as buying property in Darlington County
in 1793.

There aren't any other mentions of Elizabeth or any Fountain-King
relationships.  However, I corresponded with a Fountain researcher in
Georgetown,Texas, last year about the Fountain-Wiggins connection.  She had
a good bit of information on Henry and Lucretia's family, and may have more
on William.  Her name is June Jones Igo, and her address is 207 Rancho Bueno
Drive, Georgetown, TX  78628-9521.  She was undergoing radiation treatments
when I last corresponded; hopefully she is still with us.

I am looking at your query on the Monroe Co., Alabama website at rootsweb.
How does this family match up with Henry Fountain and his wife Lucreita
Booth? I would like to find out more about your line. I know the two must be
connected being that both were in Darlington, South Carolina and then to
Monroe Co., Alabama. Let me know if you would like to compare notes. Sandra
