I am looking for my father-in-law`s parents. My father-in-law`s name was George Ely(Eli) Byrd b. 1/1/1880 in Ahoskie, N.C.. I believe his father`s name was David and I think he died in Ahoskie in the early 1890s. The mother`s name was Anna Holliman(not sure of the spelling) and she died a year after or a year before the father. I do not have any more information than that. Would appreciate any ideas where to look. Thank you.

Benjamin WARREN proved his rights in Bertie Co NC in 1744 for himself, & wife Esther, James, Benjamin, Margaret, Mary Patience, William and Esther. In 1745 he surveys 640 acres on Quickasan [sic} Swamp, near the CHAMBLEE family. Benjamin Warren was not heard of after 1760, and there is no trail for ANY of the individuals that proved their rights. His daughter Esther WARREN most likely married Robert CHAMBLEE of early Bertie and later of Wake Co (Little River Dist), NC.There is another reference to & Esther Warren of Bertie Co in 1760 & in an old genealogy magazine, but submitter now deceased and no documentation. Love to talk to Hertford Co and Bertie Co WARREN researchers.
