RIGGS, TAYLOR posted by Clyde T. Colbert on Sunday, April 5, 1998

Need information on McDorsey TAYLOR and his sister, Della TAYLOR. They were born in the late 1890s in Edgecombe County, children of William D. and Beady ARMSTRONG TAYLOR. Both settled in or near Pollacksville. Dell is thought to have married Eddie RIGGS about 1910.

HUGGINS, LITTLE posted by T. Vance Little on Sunday, April 5, 1998

I am especially interested in the HUGGINS family. My ancestor Luke HUGGINS lived in adjoining Jones County and was a member of the Chinquapin Creek Chapel Baptist Church. Several of his children joined the "Dillahunty Migration" from Jones County, NC, to Middle Tennessee in 1796. My LITTLE ancestor, Abraham LITTLE, was also a part of that migration. He married Temperance HUGGINS, youngest daughter of Luke HUGGINS. Abraham LITTLE was said to have been a Baptist preacher. My not-so-ulterior motive is to ascertain the origin and lineage of Abraham LITTLE, as well as the HUGGINS connection. Any help and/or guidance will be appreciated. Are there any materials available on the early Baptist church in Eastern NC?

KING posted by Beth Bassett on Saturday, April 18, 1998

In pre 1850's. Information that I have is a Wiley KING and his wife Elvira, their four children Lemuel, Nathan, Josephus and Emily along with 14 other relatives left Shady Grove North Carolina and settled in Lawrence County, Indiana. I am searching for information regarding this family. Thank you for your time and consideration.

HALL, JARMAN, SMALL posted by Bropat on Tuesday, April 28, 1998

I am seeking information on the SMALL, JARMAN, and HALL families who intermarried and lived in Jones County before migrating further west and south. My particular line is that of Susan SMALL (b. 1780-90) and possibly her brother, George SMALL. She married Robert HALL JARMAN and George married Robert's sister, Philopena JARMAN. The latter marriage occurred in Wilson Co., TN, September 15, 1815, with Robert as bondsman. Susan and Robert also settled in Wilson County. I see that there are estate records in Jones Co., for Benjamin SMALL (1818) and Reubin SMALL (1797). Could these be the parents and/or grandparents of the SMALLs who moved to TN?

MATTOCKS, YOUNG posted by Lydia Young Sides on Thursday, April 30, 1998

I am searching for information on a J.R. (possibly John R.) YOUNG who married Sarah MATTOCKS of Jones County, NC. J.R. and Sarah YOUNG had at least one son, George R. YOUNG, b. 1 Sept. 1846, d. 11 Nov. 1917. George is buried near Swansboro in Onslow County, NC. Anyone who has information on this family and who George married, please contact me. George was listed as married on his death certificate but his wife's name did not appear on certificate. Thanks.

John) and Jacob died in Onslow County abt Apr 1790. I would love to find anyone else who connects to either Luke's or Jacob's families.

LIPSEY, RICKETSON, WEEKS posted by Matthew Lipsey on Saturday, May 2, 1998

I am search of Zae Hargett Gwynn's Abstracts of the Records of Jones Co., N. C. I believe she compiled two volumes of abstracts. LIPSEY, RICKETSON, and WEEKS are three surnames included in the two volumes--all three of which I am related to and interested in researching further. Thanks for any info you may be able to send my way--in acquiring the books or on a particular family. I am most interested in sharing information I have with others.

LIPSEY, POPE, SIMMONS posted by Matthew Lipsey on Saturday, May 2, 1998

In Zae Hargett Gwynn's Abstracts of the Records of Jones Co., N. C., Deed Book H, Pg. 195, it reads as follows: "March 7, 1796. Ricketson LIPSEY and wife, Elizabeth, to Ivey LIPSEY, son of Lemuel LIPSEY, and wife, Nancy, for 70 pds. 150 acres patented by John SIMMONS, Nov. 26, 1757, and descended to John SIMMONS, the elder, and then to his son, John, the younger, deceased who married Elizabeth, now the wife of Ricketson LIPSEY." Elizabeth was born abt. 1769. Ricketson may have been previously married to Ann POPE in Robeson Co., N. C., 8 October, 1792. What was Elizabeth's maiden name? When were Elizabeth and Ricketson married? Any help with this lineage is appreciated. Thanks!

Do you know where Zae Hargett GWYNN lives or lived? I know nothing about where she is from, only read in the Onslow Heritage book that she was from the same line as myself. I want to try to find out if she is alive. Thanks!
