MATTHEWS   November 12, 2003
Last month I had a breakthrough in what I knew about the family of James MATTHEWS, father of 
Rev. Willis D. MATTHEWS (my 3rd great grandfather). I found good evidence that 4 of the children 
of James and Nancy (Dickinson)were born AFTER 1810. Some of the children were married in Jackson 
Co. GA, so this led to a research trip, where proof was found in the Jackson County Courthouse at 
Jefferson GA.

I had "wasted" almost 5 years of research time by thinking that James died in 1810; so this was a 
MAJOR finding for me. I had not even tried to find evidence of him after 1810. Because it was known 
that James went to Pendleton District, SC after 1804, I immediately planned a research trip to Anderson, 
SC to see what I could find. As some perhaps know, Pendleton District records are now kept by Anderson 
County. I went last week and was successful!

I now have proof (I only use the word proof when there is verifiable primary evidence) that James 
did NOT die in 1810, as is shown "out there" on the 'net and in the "Matthews History" documents 
by Westmoreland and Madden, for those familiar with them. The proof is an 1827 Deed Conveyance. 
The record was found on an index in the Courthouse under Nancy Matthews' name, but the original 
had been sent to the Archives. The document was found on microfilm in the Anderson County SC Library 
under Nancy Matthews; ("Mesne" Conveyances), and provides details of the following:

In 1827, James Matthews initiated the sale of his land on 26 Mile Creek in Pendleton District to 
John Hunnicutt (the Hunnicutt family also came from Moore NC along with Dickinsons, Jones, and others). 
He died before the Title was transferred, and in early January 1828 his widow Nancy completed the sale. 
The document was signed by Nancy Matthews (her mark, she could not write) two sons, Willis D. and 
Thomas D.; Jason Minton (son-in-law who married daughter Maryanne, as himself and Guardian of Minor 
children; and 2 previously unknown sons-in-law, Jas. R. Smith and Joab Jones, confirming evidence 
that I had previously found that there were 2 missing daughters. The names of the sons proved 
conclusively that this was the correct family.

My research goal is to establish that the father of James was Thomas Matthews, Militia Col. and 
Rev. Soldier of Cumberland/Moore; or at least to establish who his father was.  Also, to identify 
the wife and other children of Col. Thomas Matthews of Cumberland and Moore.  Any help appreciated.

CASEY / TRULL   November 9, 2003
I am searching for records on my g-g-grandfather, CORNELIUS CASEY. I only discovered Thursday that 
he lived for a time in Cumberland County and was married to AMANDA TRULL.  I emailed St. Patrick's 
Church in Fayetteville and they were able to find three children, including my g-grandfather CHARLES JOSEPH 
as a result of that marriage.  The other two children were WILLIAM and MARY.  I have searched the 
cemeteries, via the Cumberland Site, but I find no mention of any of them.  Seems as if they just packed 
up and left the area.  The Casey family were all railroad men, so I was wondering if there might be a link 
in your archives to the railroads in Cumberland County.  Sorry, I ran on so much, I'm still excited about 
the find that I did make.  We have been in the dark for years!  Jere Casey

BYRD / HOWARD / THOMAS / SUGG / BARBER / O'QUINN   October 31, 2003
I am just beginning my genealogical search into the BYRD / HOWARD family of Harnett County, NC. My mother 
was Irene Beatrice BYRD, daughter of John Byrd and Mary Henrietta HOWARD of Mamers, NC.  If anyone has 
anything relative to this  family or to their parents ( I am especially interested in the Howard side since 
the Byrd side has already been done). My great grandfather was Rev. Caswell (?) Suggs Howard and GM was 
Mary Adaline THOMAS. The Howard side of that is George Howard, b 10/15/1791 and Elizabeth SUGG, b 9/28/1789 
and their parents were James Howard, b 9/28/1760 and Rosanah BARBER, b 1756. Any information would be 
appreciated.  Most of this data is not sourced since it came out of my Aunt Lillie O'QUINN's bible.

JOHNSON / CULBREATH   June 30, 2003

I am interested in George JOHNSON and Mary as I have lost the trail of my G-G-G-Grandfather who 
was the father of George W. JOHNSON b. 1832, Fleet M. Johnson (My Uncle) b. 1834 and Teresa Johnson 
(My Aunt) b. 1836. We think our Grandmother was Mary CULBREATH, or possibly Drusilla Culbreath. I 
know George W. Johnson was my G-G-Grandfather, but his father and mother eludes me and my family. 
The three George, Fleet and Teresa show up in the 1850 censes living with Rayford Hall and Drusilla 
Culbreath Hall. Her mother Polly was also living with them. Was Drusilla their mother from a previous 
marriage and her husband died, or left her??? And she married Rayford Hall??? My niece says that Teresa 
Johnson married a Bozman Clifton March 15, 1854 and her father was listed as (very hard to read) G. 
Johnson and Drusilla ????. 

Any help in this area of names and connections or suggestions will be appreciated. This is my family 
tree for the JOHNSON clan starting with me, Cecil Jr.

Cecil Johnson, Jr
Cecil Johnson, Sr
George Nashly Johnson
John Henry Johnson
George W. Johnson

My father and the rest of my Johnson clan were born and raised in or around Cumberland County, NC.

PATTISHALL / BUIE   June 07, 2003

Maybe you can help me solve this problem......
Thomas J. PATTISHALL( 06 Oct. 1855-20 Apr. 1916) was the brother of my gr-grandfather.
  Thomas was married to Eliza McQueen BUIE.  He and Eliza had eight children.  Three died in infancy....2 
(do not know names) .Lawrence (infant) and Martha (toddler)  are buried with their mother at Big Rockfish 
Cemetery in Hope Mills, NC. 
 I thought Thomas J. was buried there too.  I was at a cemetery in Hope Mills and took pictures of his 
tombstone.  Can't locate it.  I think I sent it to his daughter Lucile who lives in Norfolk, Va.  She is 94.  
This was in 1991, she might not still be living, haven't heard otherwise.
The children that lived were:  Conrad (they have his name as Coward Pattishall) on the list that is posted. 
Eunice married a Edwin G. Sanders.  She is dead.   Dennis  married a Rebecca Holland.  He was a Dental Tech 
and lived and is buried somewhere in the Fayetteville area.
Lucile is (?) the only living one of this family and she gave me all of the information I have.  Lucile was 
living in 2002 as per her granddaughter.

I do remember that Thomas was not buried near his wife, Eliza McQueen Buie, but, in the same cemetery.    
It shows that she is buried in the Big Rockfish cem. and is the wife of Thomas J. Pattishall.
Thanks.... Betty Richardson

I've been researching my paternal family who were Scots in North Carolina.  It is my belief that 
they lived in the Cape Fear River area.  My great grandfather (born about 1791-1793) was James FERGUSON 
whose first (or maybe second) spouse was  Sarah MALLOY.  The marriage bond was was obtained in 1815 
Cumberland County, NC.  Sarah died in 1832.
James remarried in 1833 to Nancy CAMPBELL who is recorded in Bible records as also being a cousin.
James' father was Malcom. This family later emigrated to Mississippi and later to (1850 census) 
Gadsden County, Florida.  My grandfather (James Monroe Ferguson) was the youngest of the children 
of James and Nancy.  
James Monroe FERGUSON emigrated to Winn Parish Louisiana After the Civil war where he raised a 
family died in 1936. My father (Cassius Carrier Ferguson) was the youngest child of James Monroe 
and his second wife Rebecca Jane GREEN.
I am the youngest child (only surviving one) of Cassius Carrier Ferguson and Willie Mae DICK. 
I can't connect the dots, however, of the NC Fergusons or find out when and how they came to 
North Carolina.  Can find no information regarding Malcom Ferguson in NC other than he was in 
the Robeson county census in 1790 and 1800.  He also filed a divorce petiton in NC in 1800.
I do have some dates from Bible records that were copied in 1913 from some of the Ferguson 
family in Florida with birth, death, and marriage dates of some of the family. I would be happy 
to share them with you if you would like them. Melba Ferguson Simmons


I have been interested in researching my family tree, especially FILLYAW for I can find no

CAMPBELL / PATE   March 31, 2003

I find two listings for Alexander CAMPBELL in the 1820 Cumberland County census, on pages 178 and 208. 
I am trying to link my gggg grandfather to one of those two, if possible. My Alexander married Sally PATE, 
daughter of Stephen PATE of Richmond County NC (see page 174 of 1820 census). They travelled West to 
Tennessee in 1828/29, settling in the area where Weakley, Carroll, and Henry counties meet. I believe 
they had two male children before moving to TN, Philip and Alexander. 
Alexander CAMPBELL (#1) on page 178 would have been born 1775-1794. His wife (Sally PATE?) would have 
been born 1794-1804.
Alexander CAMPBELL (#2) on page 208  would have been born 1775-1794. His wife would have been born 1794-1804. 
They would have had two children, a boy and a girl, each under 10 years old.
I wonder if the proximity of the Stephen PATE 1820 census listing (page174) to the Alexander CAMPBELL listing 
(page 178) indicates that they were neighbors in 1820. 
Any help even if only to eliminate these two possibilities would be appreciated. Larry Campbell

TOMME   March 31, 2003

Looking for a will, death information, birth information, marriage on Joseph TOMME.  I do not know his 
wife's name or maiden name.  I show information that he had an inventory in 1761, and that ( Henry and 
Joseph) took care of the inventory. I am assuming that these were his sons.  He had a son named Joseph TOMME, 
(2).  Joseph (2) was married (?) to a Mary (?).  Do not know her maiden name.  They had several children 
and had a son named Joseph TOMME, Jr. (3), that was born in 1777. I know that Joseph (2) was in the American 
Revolutionary War, and I have his bounty for land, but no will, etc.  The first Joseph from what I can gather, 
died in Cumberland Co., NC.
Need any and all information.  Thanks. J. Michael Tomme, Sr.

WILKINSON / McCUILKAN / McQUILKAN    February 03, 2003
I am looking for location of Neille WILKINSON estate.  I have letter indicating Lock Creek east of 
Fayetteville.  I saw in Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions a listing of Neill McCUILKAN obtaining 
warrant for 200 acres of land on Cutt Swamp bordering Locks Creek.  Can anyone identify where Cutt Swamp 
is.  I am trying to locate cemetery and figure it is on estate land. Mike L. Wilkinson

PALMER / ROUSE / BRADFORD    January 15, 2003
Researching the line of James PALMER who appears in the 1800 and 1810 census of Cumberland Co,
NC, and who died in Cumberland Co, NC in spring of 1813.  Believe his sons to be James Benjamin PALMER b ca 1799 
NC, last marriage to Lovie Wise, 2nd to Nancy Ann Jones in Barbour Co, AL ca 1830; Sandy Alexander PALMER who 
married Elizabeth ROUSE in Cumberland Co, NC; James PALMER who married a Drewery (Drewry); Elizabeth who married 
a BRADFORD. Henry Palmer of Cumberland Co was probably in this line.  Court Records note that James Palmer died 
in the  Spring of 1813 here, no record of his surveyed estate has ever been located. Thanks for any help.

SINCLAIR / FENNELSON    January 08, 2003
I would like for SINCLAIR to be added to the list - quite different from
Jean Grigsby's Sinclairs.  My Sinclairs begin with Duncan F. Sinclair
(1/30/1833-1/24/1906) , who married Sarah Ann Stuart (5/10/1835-6/4/1912)
and whose children were:
James Alexander Sinclair         6/11/1858
    Mary Jane Sinclair           6/2/1862
    Margaret Ann Sinclair        11/17/1865
    John Kenneth Sinclair        10/16/1867-2/5/1950 (my grandfather)
    Diana Ellen Rebecca Sinclair 7/3/1872
    Sarah Catherine Sinclair     7/15/1876

I am searching for the father of Duncan F. Sinclair who is said to be from
Scotland.  I do not know if that refers to Scotland Co., NC or Scotland, UK,
and his first name is unknown at this time.  He married Rebecca Fennelson
who was born abt. 1794 in NC and died after 1870, presumably in Moore Co.
She also had another son, Daniel F. Sinclair, b. 15 Sept 1831 in Cumberland
Co.  Both Daniel and brother Duncan served in the Civil War.

Thank you for all the good things you do! Julia English-Spicer
