“In an unsuccessful attempt of tracking information on the marriage records of RYECROFT and BROGDON in Orange Co. in 1820 (pasted below),
I chanced upon the surname of MASSEY, with researchers Dick Pickett and Charles MASSEY listed.
The MASSEY name one of my wife’s lines to Lancaster County S.C. James Rinaldo MASSEY and wife Charlotte Dixon GREEN.
If either Dick or Charles has this line I wonder if they know the misfortune that befell James & Lottie’s orphaned child Susan ‘Sude’ D. MASSEY who was “”farmed out’ to family in Texas.
If not, and they might want it for their records please have them contact me.
