18 Dec 2016 Added some documentation (census, marriage and death records) to the family of William Carpenter (1789-c1839) and Margaret --- of Buncombe and Macon Co., NC.

16 Sep 2016 Added some documentation (Will and some census records) to the family of William Stewart (bef 1755-1817) and Priscilla --- of Anson Co., NC.

4 Sep 2016 Made a change to the family of Barnabas Edwards (c1806) and wife Catherine. I had sons listed as "Samuel" ca 1840 and "L. J." ca 1841. They are actually the same person, "Lemuel J. Edwards." Thanks to Milton and Tim Slauson for clearing this up for me. They've also theorized that Catherine's maiden name is Cherry, a daughter of Lemuel Cherry of Duplin Co., NC. That makes sense based on two things they found: 1-William D. Cherry (son of Lemuel) was involved in the messy divorce/estate settlement for David Edwards, and (2) Barnabas and Catherine named a son "Lemuel." Compelling evidence. More research is needed on this subject.

3 Sep 2016 Made a change to the family of Edward Carter (1761-1838) and Mary Brown. Werner Howald shared a bible page that proves Mary's birth and death date and also lists her father as Joseph Brown, contradicting the Daniel Brown whom we thought was her father.

28 Aug 2016 Worked on family of Stephen Carpenter (mid 1700's to early 1800s) and Wife of Wilkes Co., NC and Hawkins Co., TN.

28 Aug 2016 Worked on family of James Hensley (c1819) and wives Elizabeth and Nancy Jane of Virginia; Knox Co., TN; Clinton Co., KY and Overton Co., TN (now Pickett Co., TN).

Aug 2016 Worked on family of Joseph Davis (1755/60-1833) of Marion Co., SC. I'm not related as far as I'm aware. I tried to sort his family out via deeds, wills, census, etc. His family is well documented in the public records.

Jul 2016 Worked on Sheriff Richard Godfrey (1755/65-1818) and Rachel Davis family of Marion Co., SC. I'm not related as far as I'm aware. I tried to sort his family out via deeds, wills, census, etc. It appears the Godfreys became extinct in Marion by ca 1830. Start here to see the Richard Godfrey and Rachel Davis family.

6 Jul 2016 Worked on early Hamilton families of Marion Co., SC. I'm not related as far as I can tell, but I tried to sort them out via deeds, census, wills, estates, etc. I had moderate success. Start here to see the Hamilton family.

6 Jul 2016 Worked on early Dozier families of Marion Co., SC. I'm not related as far as I can tell, but I tried to sort them out via deeds, census, wills, estates, etc. I had moderate success. Start here to see the Dozier family.

6 Jul 2016 Worked on early Shackelford families of Marion Co., SC. They may be related to my own Shackelford ancestors of Carteret Co., NC, but I haven't made the connection yet. I tried to sort the Marion branch out via deeds, census, wills, estates, etc. I had moderate success. Start here to see the Shackelford family.

16 May 2016 - Refreshed all family group and individual person pages. Primary changes were in Moody families of Marion Co., SC. I'm only related to them by marriage, but I decided I needed to try and sort them out (pre 1850) via deeds, estates and other primary records. I'm not finished yet, but I've made a good start. The main reason for this was to try to identify which Robert Moody became my uncle via marriage to Nancy Johnson before 1813. There were three or four men named Robert Moody in Marion in the early 1800's. Robert Moody Sr. (wife Esther), his son Robert Moody (c1780s or 1790s); Charles Moody Sr. (1730s), his son Robert Moody (1770s), and at least one other Robert born in the 1780's or 90's. My suspicion is that Robert, son of Robert Sr. is the one who married Nancy Johnson, but I could be wrong. More research is needed. That Robert and Nancy moved to Henderson Co., TN. (Thanks to Chimene Meyer for sharing that.). Start here to see the Moody family.
