Other names for Bartholomew were GASKINS, Baten and GASTON, Bartholomew.14
Gaskins is a French Huegonot name derived from the surname "Gascoigne".
Bartholomew/Baten is the father of Sarah. He was the correct age and lived in the correct place, Gallia Co., Ohio, to be her father. He was the only Gaskin in the 1820 census to meet this criteria. In fact, all of the Gaskins in Gallia Co., OH appear to be his relatives as they all fit exactly into every year's census patterns for his family. There is no other female Gaskin the age of Sarah A. that could be his daughter that was from age 5 to 10 in the 1820 census, his youngest daughter by his 2nd wife. Sarah also names a son after him.
Bartholomew was married at least twice and probably 3 times, as his first likely son Rhueben was born in 1791 according to his tombstone, and Bartholomew did not marry his first known wife until 1793.
His proven children are Thomas Gaskin and John Gaskins. In the 1810 census, he lived in Bedford Co., VA. There were 3 males under age 10, 3 between 10 and 16, 1 from 16 to 26 and himself over age 45. The females in the household included 1 under age 10 and 1 between 26 and 45. In the 1820 Perry Twp., Gallia Co., OH census, he is listed as Baten Gaskins. There were 2 boys under age 10, 2 boys between 10-16, 2 boys between 16 and 26, 1 daughter under age 10, 1 daughter from 10-16, 1 daughter from 26-45 and he and his wife were over 45 years of age. It is likely that a Rhueben and James Gaskins that were between the ages of 16 and 26 living with their own small families in Gallipolis Twp., Gallia Co. in 1820 are also Baten's children.
Nearness in location of several Gaskins farms also indicates further child relationships. Rheuben's farm is adjacent to Bartholomews. (CL-365) There is also a Solomon Gaskin who bought a farm within close proximity of Bartholomew's just south of Rio Grande, OH that suggests he is also a child of Barts. Rhueben married Julia Evans on 8/24/1820. A Myma Gaskins, possible daughter of Baten, married John Deal on 1/25/1826 in Gallia Co., Ohio. There are two Bartholomew Gaskins that show up in the 1850 Clermont Co., Ohio Census, Ohio Twp, p. 415 that should be checked to see if one could be a son of his. There is also a Rose Gaskins that dies in unknown date at age 1m in Ohio Twp., Gallia Co., OH that is likely to be an infant daughter of his by wife Nancy Rose. (CL-371, 495, 538)
H purchased 100 acres in Gallia Co., Ohio on Jul 17, 1818 from David Boggs. It was located about 1/2 mile south of Rio Grande on the east side, NW 1/4 sec. 34 T6 R16. (Book 9, p. 103) He was taxed for 3 horses and 3 cattle in Raccoon Twp., Gallia Co., Ohio sometime in that same year. (He did not have a house or lot in this tax record). He sold a small portion of his land along with wife, Nancy on Jun 12, 1849 to the School district #8, 1/4 acre in sect. 31 T6 R16. In 1822, he was taxed on 2 horses and 4 cattle in Raccoon Twp., but again no house or lot. Bartholomew is on the 1823 delequent tax list for Gallia Co. OH, section 27, T. 6, Range 16 which indicates that he owned a second piece of land. He was taxed on 1 horse and 3 cattle in Raccoon Twp. in 1824 and 1825. He was on the tax list for 1825 and 1827, Sec. 34, T6, R16 in Raccoon Township. Reuben also lived in Raccoon Twp. (CL-499) In the 1830 census, he is living in Raccoon Twp., Gallia Co., Ohio He has one son between 10-15 years, 1 from 15-20 and he was between the ages of 60 and 70. His wife was between the age of 50-60. They had one daughter living with them from age 5-10. They also had one of their likely mothers living with them, a woman between 80-90 years of age. They were neighbors of Thomas Boiles who was the husband of Jane Gaskins, Reuben Gaskins and Jacob Danner married to Sarah Gaskins. (p. 153) In the 1840 census, he still had one son left in the household between 10 and 15. He and his wife were between the ages of 70 and 80. (p. 13, Raccoon Twp, Gallia Co, OH) In the 1850 census it is possible that he is the Bartholomew A. Gaston, age 88 who was born in MD and was still employed as a farmer. He lived with Overton Gaston (his son???), age 25, b. VA, farmer and his wife, Mary, age 22, b. PA, Nancy, age 39 f, b. VA and Bartholomew, age 1 b. Ohio. Nancy and the baby are his last spouse and a new young son. (C-495, 538) This is supported by a marriage record in Gallia County between Bartholomew A. Gaskins and Nancy Rose in 1748 and by the following record dated June 12, 1849. "In Deed Records, Volume 22, page 161, Bartholomew Gaskins to School District No. 8 Raccoon Township: 'Know by all men that we Bartholomew A. Gaskins an Nancy Gaskins, wife of said Bartholomew A. Gaskins, in consideration of the sum of $3 in hand paid by Thomas Jones, Edmond Noel, and Jacob White, School Directors of District No. 8 in Raccoon Township in Section 34 containing 1/4 acre to the Directors and their successors in office to have and to hold forever.' Signed, sealed and delivered in the presence of Daniel G. Whiton, Silas M. Boyer, Bartholomew A. Gaskins "x" (his mark). In this record, Rickabaugh #9 School was established and built on Garner's Ford Road. His birthplace of Maryland is again supported in his son, Abraham's 1880 census in which the household record states that Abraham's father was born in Maryland.
He lived and probably died in Gallia Co., OH between 1850 and 1856 according to Warren Lawrence, a family researcher.
As for Bartholomew's parentage, it was passed down to Susan Roquemore that Bart's father was named Josiah, though I haven't found first hand support for this yet. (www.familytreemaker.com). Bartholomew's marriage record to Rachel Wood Donathan is in Hinshaw's encyclopedia in volume 6 under Bedford Co., Virginia Marriage Bonds. It is not a Quaker record. Hinshaw in his last volume included marriage bonds for two counties in Virginia. Bedford was one of them. I believe that the persons who have connected Bartholomew to Josiah were confused by the county records that were included in Hinshaw's last volume, interpreting them as Quaker records. There is a Josiah Gaskill of correct age to be Bart's father in Hinshaw's Quaker records. He got a certificate to marry Mary Griffith on 10/5/1748 in Burlington MM, NJ. It should be again noted that Bartholomew's birthplace is listed as Maryland in his 1850 census and his son, Abraham's 1880 census which does not fit with the locations of this Josiah. I also have found extensive listings of the Gaskills (occasionally spelled Gaskins) in the Burlington MM, Records of NJ and no Bartholomew is amongst them. Bartholomew is not in any of the deed records in NJ that support his lineage there either. Brian Durst suggests that he might have come from Northumberland Co., VA (via a Josiah Gaskins again) and that his somewhat unique name "Bartholomew" is from his grandfather on his mother's side. There are Gaskins in Virginia where a daughter, Elizabeth Gaskins married a Bartholomew Shrever, but no Bartholomew descendants in her brothers lines have yet been found by me. (CL-561)
As for Maryland leads, there are very few Gaskins in Maryland in the 1700's. There are 3 female Gaskins that marry in Talbot Co, MD a full generation before this Bart would have been born that might be his aunts. No others could be found in any marriage records for the entire state through the time period where he would have been born. There is a Greenwood Gaskins living in Talbot Co., Maryland who witnesses a will for Peter Parratt on Sep 15, 1754. He himself dies and leaves a will in 1760 in that same county. A Leah or Leach Gaskin also dies in that same year and county. One of these is likely to have had a son named Greenwood who was a Private in the Militia under Capt Thomas Bullen's Co., about late 1775. All of the Gaskins in Maryland, he could have easily descended from a William Gaskin (possible Grandfather) who was named Constable for Bay Hundred in 1679 in Talbot Co., MD. He purchased or was granted 50 acres of land called Gaskins Pasture in Talbot County on 27 Mar 1682. He dies on June 16, 1711 in Prince George County in 1711. He left a will written on Apr. 29, 1711 and it was probated on Aug 4, 1711 by Executor Margaret Gaskin, his wife. A son John apparently sells part of 100 acres of land on the North Branch of Patuxent River called Green Clift in Prince George Co., MD to William Nicholls where he lived shortly after this as part of the settlement of his father's estate. John and his wife, Mary are in the records again referring to "Green Clifts" on Jul 20, 1730. This might be the John Gaskin living in Bullenbrook Hundred, Talbot Co., MD in an early 1733 state census. There is a John Gaston who is the head of household in Frederick Co., Maryland in the 1790 census. A William Gaskins took his oath of allegiance in 1778 in Somerset Co., MD. There is a James Gaskins who marries an Eleanor Sewell Gaskins sometimes after her first marriage in 1784 in Anne Arundel Co., Maryland that would be a contemporary of Bartholomew and his possible brother. (CL-555, 577, 578, 584-6)
In Virginia there is a pocket of Gaskins in Northumberland Co, VA in 1787. Adult households in that area are headed by Spencer, Salley, Edwin, Moses, Thomas John, Isaac, and Mary that might be related.
Possible siblings show up in locations where his family or children live. In Clermont Co., OH there are multiple Gaskins of appropriate age to be his siblings. A Thomas Gaskins lives there in 1830 who is between age 40 and 50. (p. 189, Tate Twp., Clermont Co., OH). A Rheuben Gaskings dies in Raccoon Twp., Gallia Co, OH in 1836. 8 15 16 17 18
