BUTLER    September 16, 2002
Looking for information from Cumberland Co., NC, related to the Jesse BUTLER (born Sampson Co. NC c1753) family that relocated to Georgia (Morgan then Bryan Co.) in the early 1800s. Particularly interested in Jefferson BUTLER, born Cumberland County, NC. 1802. Patrick Butler

PARKER / MOORE    September 11, 2002
Seeking information (parents, siblings, place & date of birth, place & date of death) for Mary PARKER who married Britton/Britain MOORE May 5, 1819 in Cumberland County, NC. Thank you. Emily Moore

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 McPheeters.)

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
