Descendants of Daniel Pegram

First Generation


1.  Daniel Pegram was born in 1720 in Williamsburg, York Co., Virginia.  He died in 1777 in Warren Co., North Carolina.  Daniel Pegram, the son of Daniel Pegram and wife Sarah, was born in Williamsburg, York Co., Va. about 1720. He was the grandson of George Pegram and wife ______ Hunt. Although it has been reported that his mother was also a Hunt, there is no documentary evidence to support this. The proof that his grandmother was a Hunt comes from the apprenticeship papers of his uncle, George Pegram, in 1702/3 which state that he was apprenticed with the consent of his uncle, Robert Hunt.

Daniel married Frances sometime before their first daughter, Sarah, was born in 1741 in Bristol Parish, VA. It would appear that this first daughter died young and they subsequently named a later child Sarah as well. The Sarah who later married John Harton had to be much younger.

It has been widely reported that Frances was a Macon but again, there is absolutely no documentary evidence. For many years I was in contact with Mary Hinton Kerr the noted genealogist from Warren Co., North Carolina. She told me that she had suggested the Macon name as a "possible " when questioned about it. However, she stressed that it was only a suggestion - a suggestion that others later assumed as fact.

Daniel and Frances arrived in Granville Co., North Carolina sometime before 1754 when he is shown to be a member of the Granville Co., North Carolina militia. In 1758 he obtained a land grant from Lord Granville for 733 acres of land described as being on both sides of Hubbquarter Creek.

All of the children of Daniel Pegram are named in his Will dated November 15, 1776 and recorded in WB A, Page 170, Warren Co., North Carolina.
