I am helping a Prospective Member of DAR trace her lineage to John GEDDES/GATTIS/GADDUS  who moved from PA to Orange County, NC with the Presbyterian Group.  He received a land grant.  I found his will which names her ancestor, Isaac GATTIS, who moved to Lincoln Co., TN.  I also found a John GADDUS from Hillsborough, Orange County, who was appointed as a juror in Feb., 1777.  Is there a list of person’s who signed oaths of allegiance to the provisional government that was set up in 1777, and was John GADDUS on that list?  I am hoping he is the same John GEDDES, as I found that the name spelling was later changed to GATTIS. If an oath can be found, how can I receive a copy?

I am interested in finding the parents of Mary Elizabeth HOLLOWAY born in 1844/46 in Durham, Orange Co. NC. She has a sister Martha Frances HOLLOWAY several years younger. We can find them in Mississippi in 1890, but cannot find them on the Census in O.C.,N.C. for those years. Mary married a David A. CLEMENTS in Dec. of 1860 and then he died in the C.W. She then married Robert JONES in N.C. in July of 1865 in O.C.,N.C. then they moved to Mississippi. We know they were illiterate. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Mary E. is my husband’s great, great, great grandmother.

“Howard Shuler PAGE was aboard the submarine, Pompano, with my uncle. The submarine went down during WWII.

Would you check any sources you might have   to see if we can find family?  I have exhausted any Ancestry contacts that seemed promising.

 

The USS Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park in Honolulu, Hawaii is establishing a Pompano Family Network. Recent developments may prove to be successful in finding out what happened to that submarine and relatives will be notified if such is the case.

 

The web site www.OnEternalPatrol.com (WWII boats) you will find a memorial page for Howard Schuler on that site. They need a photo of him.

 

We know father was Arthur Bernard PAGE living at 221 S. Alston in Durham, N.C. as that was where he  was when he was  notified that his son  was missing and later dead.  He can be found on the 1930 and 1940  there.

The US Navy is seeking permission from the Japanese government to do an identifying dive on the wreck they find this summer off the coast of Honshu, Japan which they believe to be the Pompano.

Finding family for these sailors has just hit the top of the list. I hope you can help.

I am trying to find a marriage record for William CHISIM (CHISUM/CHISHOLM?) and Mary “Polly” POND who were married in Orange County sometime between around 1775, or perhaps just a bit later. My mother and I are working on the family genealogy. We have traced William’s son John from North Carolina to southern Illinois. We are particularly interested where the family property might have been located. I grew up on the family story that the “great-great-’s” had come from a plantation. Based on what we know of John, we think that there may have been a substantial piece of property. Any advise you can offer about where to start looking for this information would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.
