BLANCHARD / MORRISON
November 09, 2008
I am searching for the parents of Dicey BLANCHARD who married Benjamin MORRISON on 10 March 1825.
Dicey was born in about 1801 and died in about 1880 in Cumberland/ Harnett County. Benjamin was the
exec. Of the estate of John BLANCHARD on 2 June 1816, leading me to think that perhaps he was her father.
I could not figure out how to post a message on the board at Harnett or Cumberland Co Can you please do
this for me? Trisha London

My father's family is from Fuquay (then called Fuquay Springs and actually Duncan) I saw your site
about the Scots being involved in the Revolutionary war and the founding of Harnett County. I hope you
will direct me in finding info about the McCOTTER family. My father was James Elmo McCotter and his
parents were Thomas York McCOTTER and Hettie Austin. His grandparents were Thomas Walter McCOTTER and
Eppinetas W. Austin. The parents and grandparents are buried in the Piney Grove Baptist Church cemetary.
(His brothers were Harvey McCotter, Evander McCotter and Robert Lee McCOTTER). Any info you can give me
would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Angela McCotter
DOUGLASS / MILLER / HELTON
June 07, 2008
I am looking for information about Jackson DOUGLAS(S) who married
Louisa MILLER. Their son Thomas Giles/Jiles DOUGLASS was born ca. 1862
in North Carolina. Thomas DOUGLASS (aka J.T. DOUGLASS, Giles DOUGLASS,
Jiles DOUGLASS) reported on his marriage license in Howard Co., IN --
1890 that he and his parents were born in North Carolina.
Jackson Douglass may have been "Andrew Jackson" or "Jack" or "Thomas
Jackson" DOUGLASS. Louisa MILLER may have been "Mary Louisa", "Sarah
Louisa", "Lena Louisa" or gone by "Lucy" MILLER DOUGLASS.
The DOUGLASSes may have been Quakers as Thomas DOUGLASS married Martha
Rosetta HELTON/HEALTON a fellow North Carolinian who also migrated to
Indiana also. The HELTON/HEALTON family was Quaker & there is no
mention in the Quaker records of Martha Rosetta (Etta) HELTON/HEALTON
marrying outside the discipline.
Any leads about parents, siblings, marriages, deaths, etc. are helpful!
Thanks! Sarah Norman
BROWN/ SPENCE / SAWYER / McLEOD
April 20, 2008
Elisha B. BROWN was b in NC abt 1825-1832 probably in Cumberland Co. and he was my husband's
gr-grandfather. He was killed in the Civil War. He married Sarah UNKNOWN in or around 1855. She
was born abt (1832-and died abt 1900). They had 4 children: Kissiah or Kizzie BROWN, b abt 1856
and married Joseph SPENCE; James Bradley BROWN b abt 1858 and married Hennie Elizabeth (Bett)
WILLIAMS; T. Catherine BROWN b Oct 1859 and married Neill SAWYER; Julia A. BROWN b abt 1862 and
married Unknown SAWYER. This was all in Harnett Co. I am interested in finding who Elisha's
parents were and his wife's maiden name and who her parents were. I think Elisha's mother's given
name was Milley. After the war Sarah married Norman McLEOD abt 1870. If anyone knows anything about
these folks, please get in touch with me. Thank you. Iris H. Brown
CLARK / MONROE
February 25, 2008
I am searching for the parents of William T. CLARK who was born in 1879 and died in 1940 he was
married to Margaret Geneva MONROE. I have been able to find his 1920 and 1930 census as well as his
draft card from 1817, but nothing else. The census indicates that his parents were born in North Carolina,
but I cannot seem to find a record of him prior to 1917. I would appreciate any leads I may receive in
this matter. Thank you. Tina Brown
HOLT / MELVIN / WEATHERS / NASH
February 10, 2008
I am researching my HOLT, MELVIN, WEATHERS, NASH family branch and have found some references for the gravesites
of two WEATHERS ancestors, Jesse David Weathers (1752-1829) and Old Jesse David Weathers (1806-1883). One reference
is for a family plot at Watson Place, Harnett County, NC, and the second is for a family graveyard at Griffin Place,
Harnett County, NC respectively. Do you know the location of these places or the areas where they once existed?
Since these are family plots and I'm not sure of the family's name (likely Weathers, but not certain), the areas of
the county would be helpful in attempting to locate the cemeteries or family plots.
Thank you for any assistance. Nan Hodges

I am trying to find the place and time of death for Sarah BENNETT.
The last trace I have is the 1910 US Federal Census, which place
her in Duke (now Erwin) Harnett county. Her birth place was
Pennsylvania in 1855. According to the 1880 US Census, she and her
family was living in Saint Pauls, Robeson County. He husband's name
was George. I would also like to know any thing about George. He
must have passed away between 1893 and 1900. I can not find anything
about him. Their youngest son, Arthur was born in 1893. Their other
children's names were Daniel, Sallie, William, Walter.
Your help would be appreciated. Regards, Joseph Daniel Bennett
