My gr-gr-grandparents were David Baker and Sarah VAN HORN of Catawba Co.
Sarah was the daughter of John Van Horn 1775-1848 d Burke Co. and Sarah
Winkler.  John was most likely son of Isaac Van Horn who was in old
Lincoln Co. area ca. 1775, served under Col. MacDowell as Lt. during the
Rev.  I am seeking descendants of Isaac or John Van Horn, believe I have
figured out the Van Horn lineage to Bucks Co.PA and back to New
Amsterdam, want to compare notes. , also desc. of Henry & Michael
Weidner, George Wilfong, Conrad Yoder, Valentine Leonard, many other
Catawba lines.

My third great-grandfather, John Quiency Warren, was the son of Joel Warren
and Nancy Presnell.  I learned this from John's birth certificate.  It
indicates that both Joel and Nancy were born in NC.  The best I can guess is
that they were born about 1802-5.  John was born in Alexander County but all
info I have on him and on down comes from Catawba County records.  I suppose
it is possible that Joel and Nancy have some Alexander County ties.

Looking for descendants of Dr. Peter PLUNK who will was probated
in Oct 1791 in Lincoln Co., NC., probably the present Catawba Co.,
NC.  Much information has been collected about his two sons,
John, b. c1773, and Jacob, b. c1774, and some information has
been collected about his daughter, Mary, b. c1785, who married
Abraham SIPES as his second wife, but nothing has been found
concerning his other daughters, Barbara who married probably
before 1789 to Jacob FULLBRIGHT, Jr., Catherine who married
Nicholas CARPENTER in 1812, Elizabeth, Nancy, Sarah, or Susannah.
One of these later daughters may have married Peter CARPENTER
before 1789.  Interested in corresponding with anyone who may
have descended from any of these children.  Dr. Peter PLUNK's
wife's name was Barbara but her surname has not been found.

I am attempting to connect my great grandfather Isiah, b. 1848, and gr-gr
grandfather Elijiah Bolick born 1821 and his wife Elizabeth, born 1823
unknown maiden name, who were born in North Carolina and moved to
Missouri and showed up on the 1860 Census records in Salem and Dent
counties. Isiah, born 1848, had a sister, Francis, b. 1851, both born in NC,

I have seen a connection of the Bolick name in Catawba County

Perhaps someone is researching these names and could contact me.

John ALEXANDER was born about 1740, probably in Scotland.  He died
1799 or 1800 at Ball's Creek, which was at that time in Lincoln County.
He married first, Jane THOMSON, and second, Mary MORRISON, who
was a widow.  We do not know what Mary's maiden name was or who was
her first husband.  They took out the bond to marry in Mecklenberg County,
which we believe, was where she was living.  John and his first wife had 4
children, one of whom reached adulthood.  John and his second wife had
8 or 9 children, all of whom lived to adulthood and traveled from NC to
MO after John died.  I would be very interested in communicating with
anyone researching this family.

 I am searching for information on  Miles YOUNT, of Catawba County, NC.
I know that he was born in about 1845, possibly the son of Joseph Yount,
Sr. and Catharine Yount.  He enlisted in 1861 in Co. A, 12th Regiment, NC
Troops at age 26 in 1861.  He was promoted to 1st Lt. and was wounded at
South Mountain, causing paralysis in the arm. He was put in the invalid
  After the war, he became a bridge builder and  was working on a bridge
in either the Haw or Neuse River and fell in and drowned.  This information
was printed in the book, The Catawba Soldier of the Civil War and was
provided by my great grandfather, Henry Philip Rudisill.  It also stated
the Miles was Henry's brother in law.  Henry did marry Olivia Clementine
Yount, daughter of Franklin and Jemima Yount , but the only brother I can
find for her who fought inthe War was Sydney Leander.
  I would like to figure out how to link Miles in to the family and find
his burial place, if anyone knows anything about him. I also wonder if he
ever married and had children. Thank you in advance.

I am trying to find information on the ROWE family in general and a John
ROWE in particular.  A county history in Cape Girardeau MO says he came
from Lincoln Co, probably the part that is now in Catawba, and settled in
MO about 1810.  They must have been in TN for a short time on the way.
He had a daughter Susan b 1808 and probably other children.  Family
stories say that he was a drummer in the Rev. War, but I have searched
the NC records and the only ROWE drummer I could find was a Jesse in
Craven Co.  Perhaps he was his father.  I found a marriage for a John
ROWE to Chloe Speight 20 Sept 1784 in Craven, and a John ROWE who married
a Chatrena SEAGLE 21 Aug 1798 in Lincoln. I would appreciate any help I
can get on this family.

A Joseph HOUSTON/HUSTON was mentioned on a probate record with a William
Huston, 1783. I belive and this Joseph Houston/Huston was married in Rowan
County to a Martha Lucas in 1784 in Rowan County and I belive he operated
a ferry in now what is Iredell County, called Houston Ferry. He lived on
the Catawba River at Island Creek near Island Ford and received a 200 acre
state land grant, 1783 on this land. It was granted in the name of Robert
Houston, which was scratched out and "Joseph" written in. Is there a
connection to a Robert/William/Joseph Houston?
Any one working on this line will be contacted. Thanks.

The Nicholas Massey family bought land along the East side of the Catawba
river , Rowan Co. (now Iredell), N.C. in 1764.  Nicholas Massey's sons
were Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  His daughters were Sarah (SHERRILL),
Rachel (STOWE), Henrietta (HADDON/HADEN), Lucresa (BRADLEY), Priscilla
(LOWRANCE), Hannah (MCENTIRE/MCINTYRE), Catherine (BARRIER).  Nicholas'
2nd wife was Lucretia __.  I am trying to find the connection between
Ebenezer Massey , born 1778 in NC and Nicholas Massey.  I believe
Ebenezer is Nicholas' son by 2nd wife, Lucretia.  Ebenezer is listed in
tax polls with Nicholas and bought most of Nicholas's land after his
death.  Can anyone help with this connection?   I am also searching
for the maiden name of Ebenezer's wife, Nancy ___.  Isaac Massey's
land grant was along Falling Creek and Abraham's grant connected to
Isaac's.  Jacob Sherrill's land was close to the previous two.  Isaac
Massey disappeared from the family previous to 1809 when Nicholas Massey
died, and did not receive his share of the inheritance. I think Isaac and
his family moved west.  Perhaps there was a rift in the family. The only
clue I have to Isaac's family is the signature of  Nanny (Nancy) CRAGE
plus Isaac's on the bill of sale for the land on Falling Creek in 1807.
I would also like to correspond with anyone researching the
WALLACE/WALLIS family.  My gggrandmother was Margaret Eveline WALLACE
married to Abraham S. Massey (Ebenezer's son).
