Request on: SEARS
Respond to:Don Williams
Posted On:Wednesday, June 3, 1998 at 18:14

I was told that perhaps my SEARS is from Granville, NC. If not, then I am sorry to try and get a query on this list. What I have is an Elizabeth SEARS, who married a John JACOBS. I think Elizabeth's father was John, but every John Sears that I find, with a Nancy Brock as spouse, does not have an Elizabeth who married a Jacobs. I don't have any dates of any of this. The only date I have is a daughter, Malinda, b. 4 March 1825 in KY who married into my line with John C. Williams 4 Feb. 1847 in St. Clair Co., MO and she died 9 March 1903 in Knob Lick, St. Francois Co., MO. This is it. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated, because I am the proverbial "stone wall" on this one.

Our mother is Anniebell Frazier (she's 84 now). Her father was George Edgar Frazier, Sr. He worked for the power company and the story is that they put an "i" in his name and he never changed it. His brothers kept the Frazer spelling. His father was John Allen Frazer. His father was Allen Frazer who was married to Matilda Wright (daughter of Nathan Wright).

Margaret Twitey JONES "Peggy", is the daughter of William JONES (1723-1804) of Granville Co., NC. Margaret JONES married in 1783 William Turner LAWRENCE also found in the records as Turner LAWRENCE. William Turner LAWRENCE is the son of William & Deborah Lawrence of Granville and a brother to Abraham LAWRENCE who also married into the JONES family. I believe that William Turner & Margaret (JONES) LAWRENCE had issue: Peggy (married first cousin Barnard Jones); Henry B. Lawrence (married Elisabeth Prewett); and Mary Gwin Lawrence (married Joel Ferguson). Can anyone substanciate these children or/and tell me what the fate of this family was. Margaret Lawrence was mentioned in records as late as 1818 when her half sister-in-law, Jane (Wade) Gwin named her in a deed of gift in Person County (DB 3, pg. 46-7).

Request on: DAVIS, JENKINS, HICKS
Respond to:Trudie Davis-Long
Posted On:Friday, August 21, 1998 at 10:52

Thomas Davis married Elizabeth Jenkins 1809 in Warren Co, NC and moved to property between Bullock and Stovall in Granville Co, NC ca 1842 : What connection did this family have with the Eagle Tavern in Williamsboro, present day Vance Co. Their son William Davis married Martha Hicks and named a son Robert Alexander Davis. Robert Alexander Jenkins married a Hicks, sister of the afore mentioned Martha Hicks. I saw this information in a book at the Vance co library in Henderson. This Robert Alexander Jenkins also owned a house in Williamsboro, according to the book Zeb's Black Baby. What relationship Hicks/Jenkins/Davis. Two of Thomas's daughters married men named Jenkins: Samuel Jenkins moved to Hays Co, TX along with a Davis brother in law; and James L Jenkins, who bought the original Davis Someplace in Granville co, nc moved on to Smith Co, TN. It does not appear there is any relationship between Elizabeth, James or Samuel Jenkins. Elizabeth is NOT the daughter of Wilson Jenkins of this area. Another son of Thomas Davis, Robert Jenkins Davis, had a son, Robert Thomas Davis, who 'went West' ca 1880 at age 20-nothing was ever heard from him again. Some tax lists before 1850 list Robert Jenkins Davis and William as being in the Williamsboro tax list district, they were young men probably sent to work relatives farms.
