Looking for information from Cumberland Co., NC, related to the Jesse BUTLER (born Sampson Co. NC c1753)

McFEATERS/McPHEETERS / CAMPBELL
August 29, 2002
John Campbell married Jane McFeaters Nov. 11, 1809, Cumberland County, North Carolina. I have also seen
that she was Mary Jane McPheeters, so that gives me the name of Mary that I had guessed might be the case,
as my ggrandmother was Mary Jane Campbell, and it seemed reasonable that she might have been named for
her maternal grandmother.
I also saw in the Abstracts of North Carolina Wills, Fred A. Olds, that in 1794, in Rowan County, NC,
Daniel McPheeters died, leaving Martha (his wife), Charles, Mary, Jane, and Martha.
In these names, it is also interesting to note, that John Calvin Campbell and Jane McPheeters named
their first son, Daniel Calvin Campbell. (John's father's name was Duncan, but he also had a brother
named Daniel, so I don't know if the name of Daniel would necessarily indicate deference to Daniel
It is possible that at the death of Daniel McPheeters, that his wife, Martha, may have married again,
and relocated to Cumberland County, where John married her. In 1809, when John and Jane were married
in Cumberland County, Cumberland and Moore Counties were adjacent, so the distance may not have been as
great then, as it would appear today, as Harnett Co. now separates Cumberland and the area of Moore
County,which today is, Lee County.
This is the best lead that I have had so far for Jane (Mary Jane, Jennet ) McPheeters. Would you have
any additional information or suggestions at this point? I would love to find this long lost gggrandmother.
Jane McPheeters (Campbell) was b. about 1790 and died in Moore County in 1857.
Thank you for your time, Cornelia Holmes

McLEOD / McKINNON / McINNES / WILSON July 17, 2002
My Great-Great Grandfather was Lauchlin McLEOD and he was the
son of Scottish emigrants--believed to be John McLEOD and wife a McKINNON
who emigrated from Scotland to North Carolina in 1802. His grandfather may
have been an Angus. John and wife McKinnon had the following children: The
above Lauchlin, Daniel, Norman, John D, Murdoch, Mary, Nancy, and Christian.
Several of the children moved to Marlboro County, S.C. near Clio, but
Lauchlin and family stayed in Cumberland where he and his family were
members of Sandy Grove Presbyterian Church. Lauchlin was born in 1812 in
Cumberland County and married in 1848 Mary Ann McLEOD, the daughter of Isle
of Skye emigrants,"Sailor" Murdoch McLEOD and Effie McINNES. She died in
childbirth in that year and he re-married Effie WILSON in 1853. I am
descended from their son Norman McLEOD and wife Alice WILSON. Any
information on this family would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Daniel MacLeod
MANNING / JOHNSON July 13, 2002
I am trying, with no luck so far, to find information on these two families. My great-grandparents were
William MANNING and Lillian JOHNSON. He was from Cumberland Co., Fayetteville. But he immigrated from
England about 1884. He was born Aug. 26 1858 in England and that's all I know except for his parents' names:
Jane Gant and William Manning.
She was from New Brunswick Co., Wilmington. She was born May 27, 1865. Her father's name was Thos Johnson
as recorded on her death certificate. They were married sometime before 1888. They had six children born in NC:
Annie V. b. May 1888
Leeroy (LeRoy) G. b. Oct 4, 1889
William L. b. July 4, 1892 (my grandfather)
Lillian B. b. Oct. 1893
Hazel V. b. March 1895
Hollie (Hallie) b. Sept. 1897
They had two more children born in CA:
Ernestine b. 1903 in SF, CA
Kathleen b. Feb. 2, 1907 in SF, CA
So, sometime between Sept. 1897 and 1903 they came to CA. I have the 1900 Census for NC and found them
living in Guiford Co., Highpoint Township.
Can anybody help me to:
find birth certificates for both Wm. and Lillian
find marriage certificate or license for them
any leads on her family (Lillian)
ANY leads on when William Manning came to NC and HOW
Any suggestions would be so very welcomed and appreciated. Thank you,
Jennifer (Manning) Lacey
BYRD / AVERY July 09, 2002
I am trying to identify the parents of a Reverend William BYRD, who lived and died in Harnett County. His birth
date is 8 Mar 1830, and his death date is 30 Aug 1897. I do not know where he was born. The closest I have
come to identifying a parent is an entry (although the spelling is questionable) in the 1850 US Census for
Cumberland County, Eastern Division, listing a Nancy "BIRD" at age 51 as head of household and a
William "BIRD" at age 20. Then the trail goes cold from a census standpoint. (Other Nancy BIRDs or
Nancy BYRDs found in US Census reports for NC do not check out as logical.) Other potentially usual information:
Reverend William Byrd and his wife (Mary Elizabeth AVERY) are buried in Harnett County, at Pleasant Plains
Cemetery. Kit Ogburn
PARDUE / BLACK
July 06, 2002
I am searching for information on William Alexander PARDUE b: abt 1829 and
his wife Christain Elizabeth (Betsy) BLACK b: 1831 d: 1926 buried in
Cumberland Cemetery, Cumberland Co., N. C. I am a descendant of their
daughter Mary Ella PARDUE who married Elias Johnson Baxley. Any help is
greatly appreciated. Linda Jordan
WALTON / KENDRICK / GARRETT
June 23, 2002
James KENDRICK of Fayetteville & Cumb. Cty, born circa
1842 in PA married Margaret Ann Walton, born April 7, 1847 in
Fayetteville. Searching for Margaret's siblings, marriage record. Have
no info on James KENDRICK's family at all. Margaret's parents were
Samuel James WALTON and Middy GARRETT, but have no birth, marriage or
death dates for them. Searching for a possible Cherokee ancestor among
these people, also wondering if James Kendrick served in civil war.
Margaret and James had seven children, one of whom was Robert Lee
KENDRICK, born in 1866. Would like names of these children, and birth
dates. These families may not have always lived in Fayetteville, but may
have been farmers outside of town at some time. Both James & Margaret
moved to Brooklyn, NY in the late 1800s, where they subsequently died.
Robert Lee KENDRICK moved there also and lived out his life there til
1945. Thanks so much, Margo Dittmer
