ENOCH ALBRITTON & PENELOPE FRIZZLE, Union Parish, LA
submitted by: Tim Hudson, edited by Barbara J. Frost

The Albritton's:
The Albrittons were early settlers of Pitt County, North Carolina; James Albritton, Sr. arrived in the area later (Pitt County formed in the 1730's).
Family tradition has Enoch as the son of James Albritton, Jr. and Mary Arnett. Enoch was born in Pitt County, North Carolina in 1771. This is supported through the process of elimination (James Jr.'s nephews are all known-but no proof has yet been found that gives the children of James Albritton, Jr.) Enochs is living in Pitt County in the 1800's.

The Frizzle's:
John Frizzle was born about 1717, probably in Virginia. He fought in the French and Indian War of 1746 (King George's War), serving with the Virginia militia in Canada. He arrived in Pitt County between 1762 and 1764 and married Mary Rountree about 1770.
Penelope Frizzle, the daughter of John Frizzle and Mary Rountree, was born 27 Jan 1772, near the present-day community of Rountree Crossroads, near Little Contentney Creek in southwestern Pitt County, North Carolina.

Enoch and Penelope:
They married in Pitt County, North Carolina around 1792/1793. They bought a farm there and by 1806 had a large family of children.
In 1806 they sold their farm and moved to Georgia. They settled in Wilkinson County, Georgia. Little is known about their life in Georgia, as the counties they lived in, Wilkinson and Twiggs, both have suffered courthouse fires.

Enoch Albritton's household on the 1820 Wilkinson County Georgia census includes two females born between 1804 and 1810, one of whom is undoubtedly his daughter Mary Albritton. [Since the 1830 census listing of Enoch's family includes a female born between 1800 and 1810, and since Mary married in 1824, Enoch and Penelope apparently had a third daughter who lived to adulthood. Susannah Albritton Skinner was buried beside John F. Albritton, and they have identical tombstone markers. This strongly suggests, but does not conclusively prove, that she was the third daughter of Enoch and Penelope who survived to adulthood.]

Sometime after 1820, Enoch moved his family west to Wilcox County, Alabama, probably in 1821/ 1822. They settled near the village of Snow Hill. Enoch purchased a farm in Snow Hill and lived near his grown sons Allen, John, and Silas, as well as daughter Lavincy Albritton Lee and her husband Martin B. Lee, and perhaps other married daughters. Enoch was a constable for Wilcox County in 1833. They were probably members of Bethsaida Primitive Baptist Church in Snow Hill. Enoch Albritton died there in 1834 and was buried in the old Snow Hill Cemetery.

By this time, all of Enoch and Penelope's children had married except for their youngest son, George Washington Albritton. He continued to live with his mother Penelope until he married in about 1842. Between 1845 and 1849, a severe drought plagued most of Georgia and Alabama, and thousands of people left their homes and moved west. Probably for this reason, many Snow Hill residents left Alabama in 1847 and moved to Union Parish, Louisiana.

George Washington Albritton and his sister Lavincy Albritton Lee and her husband Martin B. Lee all moved to Louisiana in 1847. George W. Albritton was a widower, and he left his two young sons in Alabama. He returned to Snow Hill in late 1849, remarried, and returned to Union Parish with his new wife and sons.

By the mid 1850's, Penelope Frizzle Albritton was living with her children in Union Parish, Louisiana. It is not known if she accompanied them to Louisiana in 1847, or if she came later. It is also not know how long she remained in Union Parish.

By 1860, she was again living in Snow Hill, Alabama with her granddaughter. [Penelope came back to Union Parish because she is buried in Liberty Hill Cemetery, Union Parish, Louisiana.]

Penelope Frizzle

The John F. Albritton Bible states that Penelope was the daughter of John and Mary Frizzle.

ENOCH ALBRITTON & PENELOPE FRIZZLE, Union Parish, LA
submitted by: Tim Hudson, edited by Barbara J. Frost

...Penelope Frizzle, the daughter of John Frizzle and Mary Rountree, was born 27 Jan 1772, near the present-day community of Rountree Crossroads, near Little Contentney Creek in southwestern Pitt County, North Carolina...

It appears that after Penelope's husband, Enoch, passed away in Alabama, she moved to Union Parish, Louisiana to be near her children...
Source: Annie Crenshaw notes in the Bible record in Eleanor McSwain's book: "Penelope Albritton, daughter of John Frizzle and Mary and his wife, was born January the 27th 1772."

Tim Hudson notes: "Penelope was living with daughter Levincy Lee and next door to son George W. Albritton in Union Parish, Louisiana in 1850, but by 1860 she was living with son, S.W.A. Albritton in Wilcox County, Alabama. Penelope does appear to be buried in Liberty Hill Cemetery, Louisiana, though.

Penelope lived to be 88 years old.


Male Child Albritton

Enoch & Penelope did apparently have a son born before 1800 that could have been named 'Enoch', 'Jesse', or 'James', since all were family names. However, I have seen no evidence of this so far. This son disappears after 1800 and probably died as a child. - Tim Hudson.


Louise Albritton

MEDI Book: Robert Stuart has DOB as 1804, from records from Kathleen Fuller.

My records don't show any evidence that they had more than 3 daughters who survived to adulthood, Lavinia/Levincy, Mary, and Susannah. There was no other daughter named 'Louise' to my knowledge. The 1850 census enumerator mistakenly wrote Lavinia/Lavincy's name as 'Louisa', and perhaps this is how this mistake got started. - Tim Hudson


Jonathan Frizzle Sr.

Some have claimed that Jonathan Sr. and John Frizzle were sons of Arthur Frizzle of Princess Anne County Virgina. Perhaps so, but no proof yet.

Moved to Norfolk County, Virginia
Mid-1760'a moved to Pasquotank County, North Carolina.
In 1779 and 1789 Jonathan was still in Pasquotank County, North Carolina.
In 1790 - 1800 Jonathan was in Craven County, North Carolina.
In 1790 Craven, Jonathan Frizzle lived near a large group of Rountrees.
In 1791 Jonathan Frizzle (Sr) purchased 375 acres of land in Pitt Co NC in 1791, but he didn't live here.
In 1801, Jonathan Sr. sold land to his son, Jonathan Jr. (the deed says father/son) [Pitt Co NC Deed Book P, pp. 293-295]. This property lay adjoining the land of Jesse Rountree, Jr., who was Penelope Rountree's uncle.

In 1816 was in Green County, North Carolina with his son Jonathan Jr.

George Washington Albritton

A Brief of George Washington Albritton and Sarah Ann Fowler of Union Parish, Louisiana
Submitted by: Tim Hudson, edited by Barbara J. Frost.

George Washington Albritton was born in Wilkinson County, Georgia in 1810, the son of Enoch Albritton and Penelope Frizzle. ...George and his mother, Penelope, lived together, since her other children had married.
In 1836 George purchased government land in adjoining Conecuh County, Georgia but there is no indication that he ever lived there.
In 1840 he was still living in Snow Hill with his mother, and other records indicate that he resided there during the 1840s.
In 1818 the Fowlers moved from Columbus County, North Carolina to Alabama. Their eldest daughter was Millie Elizabeth, born in 1813, and their fourth daughter was Sarah Ann, born in 1817.
About 1841, George W. Albritton married Elizabeth and she became the mother of his two eldest sons. However, shortly after the second son was born in 1846, Elizabeth died, perhaps in childbirth.
In 1847, George W. Albritton moved with his brother-in-law, Noah Scarborough, and sister, Lavincy Albritton Lee, to Union Parish, Louisiana. It appears his sons remained in Alabama, perhaps with his mother Penelope Albritton.
In late 1849, George returned to Wilcox County, Aalabama and in January 1850, he married the sister of his first wife, Sarah Ann Fowler. Sarah Ann had been born in Monroe or Clarke County, Alabama. Shortly afterwards, they moved back to Union Parish, Louisiana with his sons and his mother, Penelope Frizzle Albritton.

George Washington Albritton was a Primitive Baptist and probably a member of Liberty Hill Primitive Baptist Church. He was too old to serve in the army during the War for Southern Independence, but his eldest son Enoch Richard Albritton served in both the Confederate Army and Cavalry. George W. Albritton died in 1867 and was buried in the Liberty Hill/Taylor Cemetery. Sarah Ann Fowler Albritton only lived a few more years, as she died in 1875.
All of the Albrittons living in eastern Union Parish, Louisiana descended from George Washington Albritton and Sarah Ann Fowler Albritton (the descendents of G. W. Albritton's and Elizabeth remaining in Union Parish, Louisiana don't have the Albritton surname).

Both families settled on adjoining plantations about 8 miles east of Farmerville. Both Fowler women were sisters, daughters of Richard and Sarah Fowler. Richard Fowler followed his children to Union Parish in late 1850. Any help appreciated.
