Records Pertaining to 
of Dinwiddie Co., Va.

Page Created by Sadie Greening Sparks


Probably a Brother to BENJAMIN WHITEHEAD
of Lunenburg & Mecklenburg Co., Virginia


The earliest record of Joseph Whitehead I have been able to find is where he witnessed a deed for Mathew Marable in Mecklenburg Co., Virginia in September, 1766. The earliest record of Benjamin Whitehead in Lunenburg Co, Va. is a Court case dated June Court, 1756.

Joseph Whitehead's wife was named Anne, as her death notice appeared in the Petersburg Intelligencer, April 23, 1815, P3, Col 2, giving her death date as Sunday, April 18, 1815. She was a long standing member of the Methodist Church.  This is the only reference to her name that has been located.

Joseph  was a member of the Meherrin Baptist Church, Lunenburg & Charlotte Counties, Virginia, along with Benjamin Whitehead & his wife Mary Elizabeth Swepson, in November, 1771. Joseph was apparently a member of the Methodist Church as of 1810.

When Benjamin Whitehead made his will in Mecklenburg Co. in 1781, he named Joseph Whitehead as one of the Executors of his will, along with William Green and Cluverius Coleman.

Joseph was not involved in the Administration of this estate initially, but in time he became involved according to Court Records, having lent Benjamin Whitehead's eldest son, Richard Whitehead, an amount of money, in anticipation of Richard receiving his part of his father's estate.

Joseph Whitehead resided in Dinwiddie County, Virginia, where he was a Gentleman Justice.  He also was paid for service in the Revolutionary War. The majority of that County's records have been lost due to fire. Very few records of Dinwiddie Co survive, but I located some records in surrounding counties..

Benjamin Whitehead was born about 1735, and died in 1781. Joseph appears to have been slightly younger, probably born about 1745, and the last record I have found for him is the 1810 census of Dinwiddie County, where he is shown as being over 45 yrs, with another male, (Joseph Jr) between the ages of 16-26, and a female over 45, probably his wife, 4 females between the ages of 16-26, and 1 female Under 10. His son Jeremiah S. Whitehead, also appears in 1810 census as head of household, bet. ages 26-45.

Joseph Whitehead SR apparently was deceased as of 1817, according to the Tax Lists for Dinwiddie Co., below:  Jeremiah Whitehead, SR was deceased as of 1820, according to Tax Records Below. He is missing from the 1820 census, and his children are missing in 1830, but son Jeremiah S. Whitehead re-appears in the 1840 census until his death

From BEEVILLE WEEKLY PICAYUNE, Friday, 14 Feb 1908
By Thomas Ragsdale Akins, Editor


Mary Hefferman, daughter of John Hefferman who located at San Patricia, gave an account of a massacre by the Indians and Mexicans on the ground where Beeville now stands. This is the story told in her own words:

“My uncle, James Hefferman, still lived on the Poesta when the war broke out. My father’s family lived at San Patricia. My father and a cousin, John Ryan, went to James Hefferman to assist him in laying his crop, so they all could join General Fannin’s command at Goliad. The day before they finished plowing, they were attacked by Mexicans and Indians in the field while at work, and all were killed (including John Hefferman and John Ryan). The Indians then went to the house and killed the family of James Hefferman, which consisted of his wife and five children.

“The first intimation of the sad fate that had befallen these early settlers was received by relatives and friends at San Patricia when they found at their cowpen one morning the cows of James Hefferman, which he had taken from there to his home on the Poesta. This aroused the suspicion of the family, who at once sent their boys to find out what the trouble was. On coming to the site of the settlement and seeing no one, they returned to San Patricia and reported no one at home. Then a party of men went to investigate. They found the men dead in the field. They had been dead several days. The body of the eldest son of James Hefferman was lying between the field and the house, while the bodies of Mrs. Hefferman and the four younger children were found at the house. The remains were collected and placed in one large box and were buried near the scene of the murder, although the exact spot cannot be located. The calves of the cows which returned to San Patricia were dead in the pens, the only living thing on the place being a little dog.

“The field where the men were killed was located on the spot now occupied by the courthouse, while the house and pens were west of that location, about where the old Whitehead home formerly stood. The site is now occupied by the Mexican school.”


William James Whitehead 1822-1879

VICTORIA ADVOCATE, Victoria, Texas Saturday, May 17, 1879

William James Whitehead, died on May 13, 1879, at his home twelve miles from this city, in the 58th year of his age.

Mr. Whitehead was born in Dinwiddie County, Virginia in 1822, and removed to this city many years ago.

He had been in bad health for some time, and his recovery despaired of several days before his death.  He bore his suffering with patience and died in hope of a better world.  Mr. Whitehead leaves a wife and four children to mourn his untimely demise.

The remains arrived at the Episcopal Church at 12 o'clock on Tuesday and was taken in charge by the Victoria lodge of  A. F & A. M, of which he was a member.  At four o'clock PM the Masonic procession formed and with many friends, accompanied the remains to their last resting place, where they were interred with Masonic honors.

Chapter 3


During the Revolution and immediately afterwards a notorious counterfeiter by the name of Benjamin Woodward furnished the people of Dinwiddie considerable excitement and the state no little expense. He was the leader, it seems, of a band of criminals who found a way to print excellent copies of the new paper currency of Virginia and neighboring states. Woodward was arrested early in the summer of 1776 and taken to Dinwiddie, where he was to appear "before John Banister Esquire or any other magistrate of the said County and dealt with according to law." Shem Cook, Joseph Cook, Frederick Ray, and Joseph Ray, suspected of being Woodward's accomplices, were also arrested and sent to Pittsylvania County, where they claimed a right to be tried. The arch-counterfeiter and a bag of his implements were expensively delivered to the Petersburg jail. Woodward was examined by the court of Dinwiddie County and "remanded to Jail in order to takehis trial," but the clever rascal escaped and caused the county and the state more trouble and more expense. A reward of 650 was immediately offered "to any person who shall apprehend the said Woodward and deliver him to the Keeper of the Publick Jail."


Later it was discovered that the counterfeiter had many accomplices in his large-scale scheme to defraud the government. In December 1778,while Benjamin Woodward was still at large, the Governor received upon oath the names of 21 men who were implicated. The less important members of the ring were rounded up in due time. Though the law required that they receive the death penalty, the lives of four were spared, according to a statement made in 1782 by William Rose, the jailor, "provided they performed three years Service each, as Common Labourer sin the public lead mines."

Yet the search for Benjamin Woodward was long continued with no results. In 1784 Virginia strengthened her law concerning the treatment of counterfeiters by imposing "death without benefit of clergy-that is, capital punishment with no chance to obtain divine forgiveness - upon makers of counterfeit money and those persons handling the money and "knowing the same to be forged." Naturally enough, Benjamin Woodward stayed in hiding. Perhaps word came to him through the grapevine that in 1790 James Arthur, having been arrested upon the charge of counterfeiting, made a confession showing Benjamin Woodward to be the brains of the criminal gang, and that James Wood, Lieutenant Governor of Virginia, in the absence of the governor, issued a proclamation for Woodward's arrest and offered $150 for his "apprehension & conveyance . . . to the District jail of Petersburg." Perhaps news even came to Woodward that John and Tinsley Young had discovered more of the implements with which he printed the certificates and that through the efforts of Robert Bolling and Peterson Goodwyn the Young brothers had received a reward of seven pounds. The story of John Young's finding of the implements used by Woodward must have excited the people of Dinwiddie. The poor man, terrified lest he be accused of being in league with Woodward, appealed to Edward Pegram for help and advice. Mr. Pegram took over the implements and notified the governor - much, it seems, to the relief of John Young and his brother. The newly discovered implements and the confession of James Arthur were quite enough to convict Woodward. Arthur's statement indicated, moreover, that Benjamin Woodward, during the years he wasa fugitive from justice, had been in Virginia, plying his trade as a maker of paper certificates and coins and that through agents in Virginia and many other states he had done a profitable business. The following "gentlemen justices" were present at the examination of Arthur:   -James Greenway, Edward Pegram, Jr., William Watts, Raleigh Downman, Joseph Whitehead, Francis Meier, Frederick Jones, Joseph Turner, Peterson Goodwyn, Wood Tucker, Jordan Reese, and Henry Spain. According to Arthur's confession, Woodward had been operating in Petersburg, Richmond, Portsmouth, and Norfolk, using other men to "pass'' the certificates and coin of his making. He, "his negro fellow," James Arthur, and others struck off the certificates. Many of these Arthur confessed to have signed, Woodward cleverly hiding behind his confederates. Though in his travels throughout Virginia, Woodward had used the name of Jones, sometimes he would become intoxicated and callout in the streets, "Here is Ben Woodward, the money maker." Arthur's testimony showed that agents in Richmond, Norfolk, Maryland, and North Carolina had prospered. Gold dust for the coins was secreted in trunks and conveyed from place to place. Paper for the certificates had been obtained from a mill in Maryland and brought to Virginia by Jesse Woodward, Benjamin's brother., etc, etc"

Departed this life on Sunday last, the 18th inst, Mrs. Anne Whitehead, the amiable consort of Mr. Joseph Whitehead, of Dinwiddie County.  Her death is much lamented by a numerous acquaintance.  She was a kind neighbor, an affectionate wife, a tender parent, and humane mistress.  She was a member of the Methodist Church upwards of thirty years, during which space she adorned the Gospel of Christ, her Saviour; Indeed of her it may be truly said, she was a Mother in Israel.
