Jennifer Woolvin-Allen of Fair Oaks Ranch, Texas shares pictures from the photo album of her gr. great grandmother Elizabeth Wells Carmon, wife of Capt. Samuel Carmon. They resided in Wilmington, NC. and had two children, Joshua Wells Carmon, born 1883 in NC, may have died at age 10, and her great grandmother, Julia Kathyrn Carmon, b. 31 Oct 1873 in NC, m. James Franklyn Shine Woolvin 21 April 1897.

"My big question is who was the father of Joel Wyley Woolvin (b. 20 Feb 1830 in Duplin county, NC). I know his mother's name was Anna Wolven, but I do not know who the father is. The spelling of the name had changed to "Woolvin" by 1860."

Records include NC counties of Moore, Cumberland, Chatham and Lee.
