28. Samuel3 Busey (Charles2, Paul1, ElizabethA ?) was born ca 1708.

Samuel Busey appears on an early tax list of unknown date and on the 1761 tax list in Rowan County, NC.(78)

He was one of 30 signers of a petition to the North Carolina legislature in 1768, protesting oppressive laws. He served on juries there in 1771 and 1772.

He may be the Samuel Bucey who appears in the 1790 Federal census of Rowan Co, NC, near Pinchback, Garther, Speaks and Whittaker, just 6 families away from Matthew Busey.(79)

Samuel Busey had the following children:

child + 56 i. Mathew4 Busey was born 7 or 9 Apr 1742.

child 57 ii. Charles Busey was born bef 1745. He married an unknown person (lic) 28 Mar 1765: in Rowan Co, NC.

Charles was listed as the head of a family on the 1790 Census in Salisbury Dist, Stokes Co, NC. He was enumerated near Woolfe, Moser, Shaddock and Yeats. Charles Busey was granted land in Rowan Co, NC, on 21 Mar 1780 [Rowan Deeds bk 11, p.85 - per Bill Bigham], and 24 Jul 1787 [Rowan Deeds bk 11, p. 218 - per Bill Bigham]. Charles Bucy was granted 100 acres in Stokes Co, NC, on 18 May 1789. This tract was in the Pfafftown community. [Stokes Deeds bk 2, p. 12 - per Bill Bigham].

Potential descendants of the Stokes Co, NC, Charles include Prudence Busey who married Thomas Stuart in 1794, Leear Bucy who married Alexander Billiter in 1795, Sally Busey who married Isaac Church in 1804, and Eliza Buisey who married Elijah Hooper in 1806. In 1810, these families all lived in the vicinity of the Busey land grant, per Bill Bigham.

child 58 iii. Sarah Busey was born ca 1745. She married David Hall (lic) 20 Feb 1765: in Rowan Co, NC. The bondsman to the license was Samuel Busey.

child 59 iv. John Busey was born bef 1747. On the Rowan County, NC, tax list in 1768.(80)

There was a John Bues in the 1790 census in Salisbury Dist. of Rowan County with a family of 5 and 8 slaves. In 1800, John Buise Sr. was in Rowan Co, NC, aged over 45 with 4 other whites and 9 slaves. 1810 finds John Buis Sr. and John Jr. in Rowan Co.

Possible descendants: Sarah Busey who married John Linville in 1785, Barbara Buice who married Adam Stigerwalt in 1797, Samuel Buce who married Catherine Howard in 1813, and Tempe Busey who married Joseph Smith in 1825, all in Rowan Co. [note: Temperance Busey Smith Moody was in Cannon Co, TN in 1860, having moved to TN by 1842]

It remains to be determined if these Johns are all the same man and if he is related. There was a William Buis in Rowan Co, NC, as early as 1759 who died in 1763 and had sons John and Thomas. He lived near William Baldwin. Buis is indeed a Scottish surname, so this may very well be an entirely different family.
