    • RESEARCH_NOTES:
      1. "The Mangum-Mangham-Mangrum Journal," Issue No. 49, July 2002, (formerly "Mangum Family Bulletin"), James L. Parham, editor, pp. 21-28, article includes scanned images of the actual documents. The editor notes: "The will of Lovelis Savidge (and inventory) [involves]... Mangums in early Virginia. In this case we believe that John Mangum Jr., son of the immigrant, married into this Savidge family, probably marrying Olive Savidge who is mentioned in the will as Ollife Manggam. The will image is very poor in some sections, and the handwriting is difficult to read. My transcription probably has many errors, so be careful in using this information... (EDITOR'S Comments ON The Will/INVENTORY of LOVELIS SAVIDGE: On 17 March 1697/8 the will of Robert Savidge named sons Charles and Lovelis and dau. Olive. (Probated 3 May 1698. Surry County Bk 5, page 155.). We believe the Lovelis Savidge of the will [below] is that son of Robert mentioned in his 1697/8 will. Lovelis probably named a daughter after his aunt Olive Savidge, and this daughter married John Mangum (Jr.), son of the immigrant John Mangum. There are several records which show that this John Mangum (Jr.) was married to Olive and some of these will be presented in later parts of this series. Note that the clerk who transcribed the will spelled the surname "Savidg", omitting the "e". Olive is spelled "Ollife Manggam." It is unknown if this official record of the will is a faithfully copy of the original will. Of course, Lovelis could not write his name and he had a quite peculiar signature mark like an upside down "L". The spelling in the will was quite poor, even more so than is usual in the antiquated writings of the time. Note also that a James Bennit witnessed the will. There still seemed to be a tie between these "second generation" Mangums and Bennetts. It is unfortunate that I could not decipher the parish where Lovelis resided. If you can make it out from the image supplied, or if you by chance run across a better copy of the will in your Virginia microfilm searches, please let me know. Also, in my copies, the first part of the second page was totally black. That part of the will does not seem to contain anything significant, but if anyone sees the original, or a better microfilm copy, please make a note of it, and if possible a copy for me. Finally, I could not decipher that 'inserted' word after "..of Lovelis Savage..." from beginning of second line of the inventory. Maybe you can?). [Note also that the will is confusing in that is seems to list two separate sons, Lovelis and Lovlis, each receiving a feather bed - I believe this to be a slip of the pen and they are one and the same.]:

      2. 1. Virginia Court actions (1741-1751) mentioning: John Mangum (II), his wife Olive Savidge, and his orphaned Children; his brothers James, William, and Samuel Mangum; and miscellaneous Savages/Savidges. We know that Olive Savidge had brothers Love/Love Jr./Loveliss and Robert since all three are identified in the 1728 will of Loveliss Sr.. The relationship of the other Savages/Savidges - Benjamin, Henry, William and his wife Mary, and John - is undetermined from these documents and further research is needed. (Henry and Loveliss Savidge are named in the same document which would indicate some type of relationship.)
