Elizabeth Gillespie

Female, #19660, (circa 1779 - )
Father*Francis Gillespie
Mother*Elizabeth Peek
Birth*circa 1779 Elizabeth was born circa 1779. 
Research note*1798 [Richard Fitzpatrick] Born in 1792 in Columbia, South Carolina, Richard Fitzpatrick was, in
his own words, "brought up a planter." His father was William Fitzpatrick,
one of the leading members of the planter class in the Columbia
area. William Fitzpatrick served as a Captain in the Revolutionary War,(3)
and was a member of the General Assembly of South Carolina from
1787-1794, and again in 1798-1799.(4) A wealthy cotton planter, at his death
in 1808 William's estate was worth over $80,000. Included were sixty-six
slaves, his main plantation known as Bell Hall, and another separate tract
of land including a mansion and over ten thousand acres.(5)

In contrast to his economic and political success, William's family
life was a disaster. Sometime soon after Richard's birth, William Fitzpatrick
and his wife Elizabeth Lenon Fitzpatrick separated. Thereafter, the
two battled each other in the courts over Elizabeth Lenon Fitzpatrick's
claim for compensatory damages after William left her. Though William
and Elizabeth never divorced, the Court of Equity did award Mrs.
Fitzpatrick the sum of sixty pounds sterling to be paid her yearly for the
rest of her life.

By 1798, William Fitzpatrick had taken a mistress,
Elizabeth Gillespie, with whom he moved away from Bell Hall to his
other tract of land.(6)

William Fitzpatrick's union with Elizabeth Gillespie must have been
quite scandalous, for not only was William still legally married, court
papers at the time said that "(William) Fitzpatrick was an old and ugly
man and... Miss Gillespie was young and very handsome," a woman of
"good moral character... previous to her acquaintance with Fitzpatrick,"
who "had lost her good character by the visits of said Fitzpatrick. (7)

Soon after William began living with Elizabeth Gillespie, they had a son whom
they named William Gillespie Fitzpatrick. William's mistress and bastard
son made it impossible for him to run for another term in the South
Carolina General Assembly; he served his last legislative term in the 13th
General Assembly of 1798-99, not coincidentally the first two years of his
relationship with Elizabeth Gillespie.

Columbia society must have made William Fitzpatrick and his whole family, including Richard and
Richard's older sister, Harriet, into social pariahs because of William's
illicit relationship with Elizabeth Gillespie. The Fitzpatrick family, for
example, does not show up on the church lists of the time, including the
First Presbyterian Church were Harriet later was buried.
After William began his association with Elizabeth Gillespie, he
tried to arrange his affairs so that both Elizabeth Gillespie and William
Gillespie Fitzpatrick would inherit most of the Fitzpatrick property. A
South Carolina law prohibited mistresses and their bastard children from
inheriting more than one-quarter of the testator's estate. Through a complicated
arrangement of gifts and third-party purchases, however, William
tried to circumvent the law. Although William did not try to cut his
natural children completely out of his will, (8) we can only speculate that
Richard's and Harriet's affection for their father must have dwindled as
they saw him trying to give away what the law said should belong to
them, and as Richard was dropped in a second will from being named one
of William's executors. At the very least, Richard's ties to his family in
South Carolina must have been somewhat more tenuous than was common among planter families of the day.
In 1808, William went mad, and in April of 1808 a Declaration of
Lunacy was declared by the Court and the administration of William's
business affairs was taken over by his son-in-law, Harriet's husband,
Joseph English. Richard was sixteen at the time, and thus was not old
enough to take over. In June of 1808, William died, leaving his huge estate
to be fought over by his inheritors. Ultimately, through court actions
lasting into the 1820's, Elizabeth Gillespie and William Gillespie Fitzpatrick
had to turn over all the property William had given them and settle
for a cash payment of $20,000, one quarter of William's estate. Richard
and Harriet were joint heirs of the remainder of the estate worth over
$60,000. In addition, Richard received ten slaves given to him as a gift by
his father years before William's death, but which William had never
released to Richard? The long court battle by no means deprived Richard
of his inheritance during the time actions in the court took place. By 1810,
Richard had turned eighteen and was listed in the South Carolina census
as the head of household of a plantation which had sixty slaves in the
Lexington District near Columbia. Richard Fitzpatrick was at the age of
eighteen one of the largest slaveholders in the Columbia area.
For whatever reason, sometime around 1816 or so, Richard left
South Carolina.' We can only guess about the reasons Richard Fitzpatrick
left South Carolina and his plantation. The state of his family's reputation
undoubtedly played its part, and perhaps Fitzpatrick's childhood in a
broken home lessened endearing attachments that might normally have
kept him near his birthplace. Perhaps he just wanted to see the world and
had the wealth to allow himself to do so. We do not know where
Fitzpatrick went, but for whatever reasons, from this point on in his life,
he "became a man of moving habits," as his grand-nephew later deRichard
Fitzpatrick's South Florida 51
scribed him." One of Fitzpatrick's nieces remarked in 1854 that 'Uncle
Fitzpatrick ... has seen so much of the World that he is very pleasant
We know little else about the effect of Fitzpatrick's South Carolina
background on his later life. Quite likely Fitzpatrick's parents' marital
difficulties contributed to the reasons why Fitzpatrick never married.
Fitzpatrick's childhood also evidently made him quite a liberal on
divorce, for he later supported nearly every divorce bill he ever had to
vote on in the Florida Legislative Council. Fitzpatrick left no personal
papers, however, that spoke directly of his personal values and attitudes
that may have developed as he grew up in South Carolina. But although
the innermost thoughts of Fitzpatrick are inaccessible to us, we may
reasonably assume that he adopted the ideology and habits of mind that
were characteristic of the planters of the South. His later actions are those
of a man with the planter ideology outlined below by Eugene Genovese,
an ideology characterized by:
... an aristocratic, antibourgeois spirit with values and mores
emphasizing family and status, a strong code of honor, and aspirations
to luxury, ease, and accomplishment. In the planters'
community, paternalism provided the standard of human
relationships, and politics and statecraft were the duties and responsibilities
of gentlemen. The gentleman lived for politics, not
like the bourgeois politician, off politics.
The planter typically recoiled at the notion that profit should
be the goal of life; that the approach to production and exchange
should be internally rational and uncomplicated by social values;
that thrift and hard work should be the great virtues; and that the test
of the wholesomeness of a community should be the vigor with
which its citizens expand the economy. The planter was no less
acquisitive than the bourgeois, but an acquisitive spirit is compatible
to capitalism. The aristocratic spirit of the planters absorbed
acquisitiveness and directed it into channels that were socially
desirable to a slave society: the accumulation of slaves and land and
the achievement of military and political honors."
As the Florida peninsula opened up to American settlement in the
1820's, men from the South like Fitzpatrick brought their ideology with
them. The manner in which these Southerners coexisted with Northern
bourgeois, lower-class whites of both the South and the North, people
from the Bahamas, blacks, and Indians - all part of the South Florida
population- is the core of South Florida's early

Subject: The mysterious John Slappy and Aunt Betsy

There should be enough documents running around to specify which of the 5 Slappy brothers had a son named John (old enough to marry an Elizabeth Gillespie), but there seems to be a problem! And also a major can of worms, as in big-time scandal. Check the attached census entries for a quick Who's Who of Slappys and where they went. Where in the world was John hiding in 1790? The only household in which that would be remotely possible is that of Frederick. But it would require two generations of Fredericks who shifted positions in Edgefield Co very rapidly.

The John Slappy who appeared on several Edgefield deeds with Frederick was not Frederick's son (or at least not a legatee in his will signed 9 Sep 1826, proven 16 Oct 1826). Frederick's son John George was called George in Frederick's will, signed his own will as John G. on 2 Sep 1830, proven 3 Nov 1830. Frederick's other son Jacob had died intestate in Dec 1819, brother John G. named as administrator by the Abbeville court. John G.'s only heirs were his two nieces, Elizabeth and Rebecca Bullock. Frederick's only daughter Mary Ann married Elihu Bullock, who died 1819 in Abbeville, widow Mary Ann his administratrix. One bondsman was Frederick Slappy Sr., buyers at the sale included Jacob Slappy and Frederick Slappy (no title re age). Widow Mary Ann Bullock married James Patterson before Sep 1826 (per her father's will), then died before 1830. Followed by court issues re guardianship of the girls, wasting of the estate, etc. The John Slappy who executed deeds in Edgefield did so with a wife named Mary [Edgefield Deed Book 38, p. 188, sale of John's 200 acres on Cuffeetown Creek to Josiah Langley Sr. on 31 Jan 1821]. He did not have a wife named Elizabeth Gillespie.

How solid is the evidence that John Slappy was "really" married to a relative of Daniel Peek? He was definitely an administrator with John Culpepper of Peek's Richland Co estate in 1807, but that alone does not guarantee a family relationship. Some administrators were appointed on the basis of their being the largest creditor of the estate. I am virtually certain that Elizabeth Gillespie did not include John Slappy among her spouses.

I'll point you to the sources for the scandal bit. Go to, and read the will(s) of William Fitzpatrick of Richland Co, one signed 25 Mar 1808, proven 19 Aug 1809. The other one was purportedly signed Jul 1806, proven 23 Jan 1810 (despite no witnesses). Primary legatees for the first one were his dear friend Elizabeth Gillespie and her son William Gillespie Fitzpatrick, identified by William F. as his godson whom he had adopted. He left an annual allowance to his legal wife Elizabeth (daughter of Thomas Lennon) because the Equity Court had forced him to. He gave property to his legitimate children Richard and Harriet Fitzpatrick as well. Executors (per first will) were Elizabeth Gillespie, James chestnut, Daniel Peak (Elizabeth's uncle), with his son Richard Fitzpatrick to join them when he reached legal age. The proving witness was John Culpepper, leaving little question about "which Elizabeth Gillespie" William Fitzpatrick had moved into his home. Fitzpatrick was extremely rich, was repeatedly a Representative, but the adultery-scandal was too much for the family to bear. Richard Fitzpatrick hightailed it to Key West. Google "William Gillespie Fitzpatrick" to find a rundown on the inheritance problem in a pdf file from a Florida history journal. It was illegal to give-or-leave an illegitimate child-or-children more than 1/4 of the total estate. Fitzpatrick tried to get around that by calling Elizabeth his "beloved friend" and William G. his "adopted godson", but the court wasn't having any of that. They retroactively declared him insane, threw out the will, substituted another unwitnessed document, and found somebody to attest to Fitzpatrick's signature. Interesting family saga! Daughter Harriet Fitzpatrick married Joseph English--they were the ones who had the will declared null and void (Richland Equity Bill 159, Court Minutes of 9 Sep 1809), and English was named administrator. Elizabeth Gillespie married James Denton, they contested the court appointment, because Elizabeth had been named executrix by the deceased (the late Daniel Peek was probably glad to be out of that mess). They lost the case. The summary and ruling of the court case is the first hit from a Google search on <"James Denton" "Elizabeth Gillespie"> It identifies Elizabeth as the niece of Daniel Peek, and explains how he collaborated in the transfer of Fitzpatrick property to her.

I added census entries for Elizabeth Gillespie [Fitzpatrick] Denton Dixon, AKA "Aunt Betsy", to the Slappy census collection, even though she did not marry a John Slappy (at least, not before 1807). In 1810, she and James Denton were listed as the Richland Co household adjacent to John Culpepper--her brother-in-law.

I think I've pinned them down. It was the timing of the change in name-usages that stumped me initially. The first generation of SC-born Slappys (and other Swiss families) kept the German name-usage, so that a John George was called George. But the second generation became adults after the Revolution, and most of those switched over to English-style (especially after moving to English-predominant communities). So all the little John Georges became John G., with a single exception: John George Slappy III (b. 1774<84) used just-plain-John everywhere he went.
And where he went was generally wherever John Culpepper did: Richland Co estate of Daniel Peek, Edgefield Co (where he and wife Mary lived near Uncle Frederick Slappy and friend John Culpepper), Monroe Co GA (where John Slappy bought land in 1832, but skipped the 1830 census that caught John & Nancy Culpepper and his sister-in-law Elizabeth). It's the parallelism of the slave sales recorded in 1817 from "George" (John George II) to "John" and "Jacob" (his sons John George and Jacob Class) that pin down which of the multiple John Georges used the single name John Slappy.

John (George) Slappy III reportedly married a Polly Gordon, and remarkably little is reported about their vital statistics and whereabouts, just a long list of children. Some websites gloss Polly as "Elizabeth" (maybe because of the Gillespie/Peek connection), but Pollys were always Marys, just as Betsys were always Elizabeths. Her reported surname was maybe borrowed from the name of son Alexander Gordon Slappy, despite the severe Gordon-shortage in/near Lexington Co. One might as well go all the way and hypothesize that Mary was the daughter-or-granddaughter of an Alexander Gordon. There were a lot of those all over SC (except around Lexington), but one is especially promising. Alexander Gordon was born 4 Apr 1723 in Scotland, came over in 1739 and settled on the Pee Dee. He married Elizabeth Ellerbe, who died in 1754 (at birth of son Robert). Then he married Mary McCoy, and they had 3 surviving children: William (b. 12 Mar 1758), Mary (b. 1762, married Joseph Brown), and Christian (b. 1764, married James Due/Dew/Dewes). Alexander Gordon died 7 Apr 1785 at age 62; Mary Gordon died 29 Mar 1797 at age 57, left a Marlboro Co will. BTW, both sons-in-law were members of Indian-trading families connected to Patrick Brown of the old Saxegotha/Congarees trading-post (re-incarnated as Chestnut & Kershaw). Mary McCoy Gordon left two slaves to her son William's daughter Mary Gordon. The Gordon family lived adjacent to Francis Gillespie and Thomas Ellerbe. James Gillespie witnessed Mary Gordon's will on 15 Mar 1797, as well as other land documents executed by Mary Gordon and her son William. James Gillespie also bought land from William Gordon (inherited from father-Alexander).

There are some geographical difficulties in getting all these people together. John Slappy would have had no problem meeting William Fitzpatrick (elderly paramour of Elizabeth Gillespie), because Fitzpatrick lived on his Lexington Co plantation at Beaver Creek in 1790; heir Richard Fitzpatrick lived there before heading for FL. It's a long stretch for Daniel Peek on the Wateree near Camden to have a sister married to Francis Gillespie way over on the Pee Dee, but he did. There is no a priori reason that he couldn't have had other female relatives on the Pee Dee, married to, e.g., William Gordon (b. 1758).
The only age-clues we have for John Slappy's wife Mary/Polly Gordon is that both of them were in the 16<26 age group in 1800, so born ~1774<84, and Polly's age in 1830 (Lee Co GA) was 40<50 (so born 1780<90, both together implying 1780<84). I can't find the couple anywhere after 1830--the children are scattered all over GA and AL. There was definitely a John George Slappy in Lee Co GA in 1850, but that one was the 1797-born doctor (son of Henry), so first cousin to the John-hold-the-George-Slappy of Lee Co in 1830. Anyway, John and Polly disappeared. Their oldest son, John (George) IV, lived with his parents in 1830 and with his sister Elizabeth Theus (Dooly Co GA) in 1850. He married Eliza Katherine Kaigler in ~1851, in someplace-or-other, and they were in Chattahoochee Co GA in 1860. At that time, the family included 2 sons, John George V (b. ~1852) and William Henry (b. ~1855).
Everybody had been creeping westward, but son John George V "backtracked" to Monroe Co in 1877 to marry Frances Elizabeth LeSuer in 1877, and they raised their kids there. I don't know if that's because he was raised in Monroe Co himself. But somebody named John (without the George) Slappy had one child when he moved in with "Aunt Betsy" in Monroe Co GA in ~1853. John Slappy (III, married Polly Gordon) and his son John Slappy (IV, married Eliza Kaigler) both ignored the George in their names. John IV had exactly one child (John V) by 1853. I suspect that John IV was the one in Monroe Co in the mid-1850's with Elizabeth Gillespie (Fitzpatrick) Denton Dixon. The nature of their connection is unknown to me, but could have involved any combination of Gordons, Gillespies and Peeks.
