Hyde, Micajah (abt 1797-1875)-Hall Co., GA

Micajah Hyde was born abt. 1797 in Wilkes Co., GA and died 1875 in Hall Co., GA. His wife was a Mary,  last name unknown. I think his father was David Hide (Hyde) born about 1768 in Wilkes, GA, died about 1845 in Hall Co., GA.

 

Micajah and Mary Hyde’s children were the following:

     

  1. Jesse Daniel Hyde was born 11 June 1825 in Hall Co., GA and died 10 May, 1883 in  Winston Co., AL.  Jesse married Sarah Jarome Barton on 3 Sept 1850 in Hall Co., GA.  They are both buried in Sardis Cemetery, Winston Co., AL.

     

    Their son William Jackson Hyde was born 17 May 1861 in Lynn, AL and died 17 Oct 1946 in  Haleyville, AL.  William married Harriet Elizabeth Barnett Hyde.  Their daughter Sarah (Sadie) Hyde Newman was my grandmother. I have a lot of history on the Hydes and Bartons who moved from Hall Co., GA, to Winston Co., AL.

DNA Data:

To my knowledge none of the living males in this Hyde line have had Y-DNA testing, but there might be some willing to participate.  I have had mtDNA and Family Finder testing done at on FTDNA.  So far I have not been matched with any Hydes except for my first cousin, also a great granddaughter of William Jackson Hyde.

 

If you are of this line, please leave a reply with your name and email address. Thanks!

  • I’m not sure if i fall in to the hall county georga lines but i do know my great grandfather was from north ga his name was joe hyde and he married a Cherokee names xenobia from winston county alabama and that is currently where i reside. my grand father had brothers and som more family mov to this area also

  • I am the great granddaughter of William Jackson Hyde. My grand father was Joe R. Hyde. usually called Rile by everyone who knew him. I have been trying to trace the line and have gotten as far as some census that put Jesse next door to Macajah. There is even one with David and Macajah. Just wondering how far along you are in your search?

  • Richard Hyde may have been the first immigrant in my family line: 1. Richard Hyde married Mary Cotton.
    2. Richard Hyde married Mary Evans. 3. David Hyde married Mary Wilkins. 5. Stephen Hyde married Mary mollie L Waddell. 6. Noel Hyde married Elizabeth Black. 7. Charles William Waddell Hyde married Mary Williams. 8. Charles William Hyde married Martha Lathona White. 9. Ira Herschel Hansel Jackson Hyde married Maude Elizabeth Woodward. 10. Urban Alexander Hyde married Lillian Eliese Wildman (my parents.) As the 11th generation in this line of Hydes, originally from South Carolina, I’m wanting to know more factual information about those first two Richard Hydes. I HAVE NO IDEA IF MY LINE EVER LIVED IN NORTH CAROLINA. Thanks for any asssistance.

    • Dorothy, there were three Stephen Hyde/Hides in the 1790 census. One of them is Stephen Hyde of Anson County, NC, who was the son of David Hyde and Mary Wilkins. He is mentioned in David Hyde’s will (NC, 1785). He was a slaveholder, as were almost all in the extended Richard Hyde line. This Stephen of Anson was married to Susanna Colson Fanning and is also mentioned in her father John Colson’s will (SC, 1789). John Colson was a Tory and I believe that Stephen was also. Both Hyde and Colson complained to the provisional government of NC concerning confiscation of their lands, 1786 – that record will clarify this Stephen’s descendants.
       
      The second Stephen only appears in the 1790 census and no other. I *think* Stephen Hide of Surry County, SC is the one married to Mary “Mollie” Waddell, and she appears as a widow in the 1800 Spartanburg, SC census, very close to Stephen’s brother George Hyde/Hide, who has moved from his land in Surry NC to Spartanburg SC. This branch of Hydes did not leave wills, but there are associations with probate records and land purchases between a Samuel, George, Charles and this Stephen Hide/Hyde. Possibly someone could jump in here with additional information? This is where I get confused.
       
      The third Stephen Hide/Hyde/Hede appears in Greenville, SC in 1790 and is the one associated with the Noel Hide who married Elizabeth Black. James, Noel and Isaiah Hide are all quite close to one another on the 1800 census, while Stephen is either not in Greenville or not a head of household (look for older males)…so I’m not saying that the Stephen Hide/Hyde of Surry is *not* Noel’s father, just that we need some clarification between Stephen of Greenville, SC and Stephen of Surry, NC – one of whom served in the Revolutionary War. Anyone? Tom?

  • I think that my grandfather, Rufus Homer Hyde, was related to this family. He was born in 1909 in Fulton County, Ga. (I believe), and died in 1995 in Cleveland County, NC. This is his DSS card. Unfortunately, I don’t have much more information on his childhood than that provides.

    • Blake, this is Tom “Doc” Hyde’s direct line, so I’ve asked him to take a look at this. In my reply to Dorothy, which appears directly above your comment, is a breakdown of the Stephen Hydes. There’s quite a lot of (free) information on Familysearch.org, so you may want to use that to get birth, marriage, death, census and other records to fill in the blanks of this outline: Rufus Homer Hyde b 6 Aug 1909, married Epthia Pauline Curtis….Rufus’ parents were Rufus Thornton Hyde b 1881 and Della Clark b 1886….Rufus T’s parents were Daniel Tense Hyde b 1835 and Martha Eulone Mabry b 1848 (father Osbern Mabre/Mabry)…they appear in the 1870 census Shoal Creek, Dawson, GA next door to Pinien or Pinion family. Confederate soldier. Daniel T’s parents were…it gets very sketchy from here….possibly Daniel or David Hide/Hyde…On the 1810 census for Greenville, SC there’s a young Daniel – although could be David – Hide, approx 22 years old with his young wife. They are living near Linderman/Lenderman, Redman/Redmon, and Ray families, as well as Jacob Black and Samuel Dyer. In the 1830 census for Pickens, SC they are living next to Stokes Pinion, Noel Hyde and Stephen Hyde…Daniel Hide/Hyde’s parents are said to be Stephen Hyde and Mary “Molly” Waddell. On Hyde DNA, this is our R-M512 Group from England.

  • I’m trying to figure out what hyde line I belong to. My 3x great grandfather was Rufus F Hyde. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    • Mary, yours is the William Christopher Hyde line. i sent you some information via email, let me know if you have any questions.

  • My husband is the 4 greatgrandson of Micajah Hyde. We are looking for more information as well. We hit a stumbling block with him everytime. What could a blood test prove? Thanks for any info ☺

    • AJ, fortunately for us all, a DNA test does not require blood, but just a Q-tip rubbed gently on the inside of your cheek then sealed in a vial and mailed back to Family Tree DNA. Our surname project has descendants of Micajah, and Diane Parvin is a good person to speak with about that, as is Tom Hyde. I’ll send you an email directly.

  • Diane, I am related to Micajah Hyde also. Micajah-William Jackson-William Thomas (Thom)-Nelia Hyde Wood-Lottie Blanch Wood Benson-Nellie Margaret Benson Webb-Mike Webb.
    I would very much lik to be part of your discussion group on the Hyde’s.
    Do you have any information on where William Jackson Hyde and Mary Caroline Head Hyde are buried? Mary Caroline’s, parents, Billy and Sarah Head, are buried at Airline Baptist Church.
    Also, did you know that William Thom Hyde operated a grist mill in Hall County? Hall County bought the mill several years ago and is now in the process of restoring the mill. I think they are planning a dedication in the near furture.
    Again, please add me to your association and list.

    • Hi Mike, thank you for your post, I would be glad to share information and eraser have our Hide/Hyde families with you. Micajah Hyde’s son Jesse Daniel Hyde, was my great great grandfather, married Sarah Jarome Barton. Your William Jackson would have been Jesse’s brother, and my great grandfather William Jackson would have been named after him. I believe your William Jackson died in the Civil War. I believe he was born in 1834, Hall Co., GA, married Mary Caroline Head 15 March 1852, daughter of William Head and Sarah Thompson. The Hydes and Bartons were very active in the Timber Ridge Baptist Church located about 11 miles outside of Gainesville, GA. Micajah Hide and his wife Mary joined by letter May 1852. William Jackson and Mary Caroline Head were received “by experience “ in September, 1853. I don’t know the date of William Jackson’s death, will look further into his Civil War records. I found C. Hide in the 1860 census living with William and Sarah Head and Thomas Hide, age 6 and Jackson Hide, age 4. I found Mrs. M. C. b. 1833, d. Oct. 1910, buried in the Timber Ridge Cemetery, Hall Co., GA. In 1859 my Barton/ Hyde families migrated to Winston Co., AL, and most of my search has been there. I’m glad to be finding more about the other children of Micajah. Thanks again, I look forward to sharing more information.
