51 17 April 1997: Note from Dorothy Lee Hines-Rawlings; "Mary was a sister to Elizabeth Green, who is also my great-great grandmother, but have not found their maiden names." Recorded by Elnora Frances Cook-Wyrick. 27 September 1997: Received a response today to an inquiry I made regarding the Goodson Surname, found on the Franklin Co., MS Gen Web homepage. Pauline Brandy had placed the Post to the Page, and after some investigation, confirmed on 30 September 1997 by Robert Dewey Taylor, who has done extensive research on the Goodson Family. Pauline Brandy is related to the Goodson Family through Rachel Ratcliff-Goodson. Robert Taylor is descended from Mary's older sister Rhoda Goodson -Slaughter. Recorded by Elnora Frances Cook-Wyrick Goodson, Mary Polly (I1645)
 
52 1744 John Nichells witness a Will in Tyrrell Co I think I was misunderstood. I did not say Frances Nicholls was married to GPZ. George Peter Zellner married 1) Elizabeth Nicholls. Proof of this exists in the wills of two of Elizabeth's brothers...Thomas Nicholls who died 1812 Bertie Co.NC. Thomas names Barbara Bentley as his "niece" and leaves her 5 shillings. The will of Jehu Nicholls 1838,another brother to Elizabeth, leaves Barbary Bentley "daughter of my sister Elizabeth" a bequest as well. When GPZ died in Lincoln Co. Ga ,Barbara Bentley was named in the will probated Jan 1823..."I give and bequeath to my daughter Barbarey Bentley". Andrew Zellner, son of GPZ, left an obit in which it stated [according to Andrew's son Benjamin Holmes Zellner] that GPZ was married twice. It does not state the name of the first wife but does state that the second wife, Mary Capehart, was a cousin to GPZs first wife. According to Hardy researchers, Michael Capehart, father of Mary Capehart, was married to Frances Hardy. This means then that it was likely that John Nicholls (father of Elizabeth Nicholls) was married to Michael Capehart's sister. This had all been conjecture until I recently stumbled onto a copy of a Nicholls family prayer book that was given to the St. Thomas Episcopal Church by the Webb/Nicholls family. It is in the possession of St. Thomas Church and states according to Lorenzo Stephenson Webb (great grandson of John Nicholls) that John Nicholls was a lay leader of the church "when it was first being built" and was married to a Capehart. We do not know her first name because she was deceased at the time of John Nicholls death in 1791 in Bertie Co. I think the errors occurred when Jane Zellner Gladney and earlier researchers might have assumed erroneously that if the Capeharts and Nicholls were cousins then it had to be through Frances (now known to be Hardy) Capehart and John Nicholls. They did not suppose that it might be through Michael Capehart and the wife of John Nicholls. Here's some more Bertie Co. info re GPZ: Deed Book O p. 291 Bertie Co: WILLIAM ASHBURN of Bertie Co. to GEORGE PETER ZELLNER . 18 Nov. 1788 50 pounds (no acres) (messuage) joining Spring Branch, Ryan, Wm Ashley. Wit: JOHN NICHOLLS, REUBEN KNIGHT. Nov Ct 1788. William Ashburn was married to Frances Rasor. Two of Frances Rasor Ashburn's sisters married Capeharts. Reuben Knight was another one of John Nicholl's sons in law. He married Mary Nicholls (sister to Elizabeth). Mary Nicholl's first husband was Thomas Webb (grandfather of the Lorenzo Stephenson Webb mentioned above in connection with the prayer book) >From 1788-1800 GPZ was a buyer at three vendues: the estates of the following: Hardy Hunter (1794), Wm Jordan(1790) and John Nicholls (1791) Hope this hasn't confused everyone too much. ----------------------------------- Nicholls, John (I1227)

Two things here. First, Notice the mistake in naming Charles, not Michael, as the deceased. Second, there was no follow-up in the next or succeeding sessions on this action. There also was no probate inventory or sales in the probate record for Michael. For some reason the case seems to have been dropped unless the papers were filed elsewhere. 1816: Charles Trefoe is listed on the 1816 Jefferson Co., Mississippi Tax Records. 18 Apr 1826 Jefferson Co Marriages, Book 1, p. 235, --John P.

Marriage license of William J. Trefoe and Louisa A. Daniel in November of 1843. 9. Marriage license of Louisa A. Trefoe and Elias B. Thompson in December of 1846. The other marriage licenses of Trefoes were missing on the film. I did get other marriages which involved Trefoes however. They were: Medaz Bozeman to Jane Trefoe on 26 Oct 1836 with Henry Smith bondsman. Levi N. Thompson to Nancy Barefield on 8 Dec 1841 with William J. Trefoe bondsman. William J. Trefoe to Louisa A. Daniel on 15 Nov 1843 with Hiram G. Roberts bondsman. William B. Hamberlin to Mary McAlpin on 28 Jan 1846 with James Trefoe bondsman. Elias B. Thompson to Louisa A. Trefoe on 1 Sep 1846 (date does not match with marriage license above) with James Trefoe bondsman. W (ashington) P. Mills to Amanda Trefoe on 22 Oct 1848 with Bird Williams bondsman. 10. Probate record of William J. Trefoe, Dec 1846 court term. Said he died in January 1844 (prob. 1845). Besides wife, left three other heirs, H.E. Trefoe, N. Thompson, wife of Levi Thompson, and E. (L.) A. Thompson, "wife of relect." (miscounted heirs.) Also said he had land in Texas. 11. Probate of James Trefoe, 1846. Died in Summer of 1846. His estate was divided between his widow, Amanda, and only child, Octavia J. Trefoe. In two years, Amanda remarried to Washington/Wadlington P. Mills who was made guardian over Octavia J. 12. Chancery Court, March 1848. The Mills tried to get the court to give Octavia's part of the estate to them for her care. She then died a year later and the filing was moot. 13. Chancery Court, Vol. 1, p. 126-127, William J. Trefoe is made Justice of the Peace for Hinds County 12 Nov 1841. These are the records I was able to find and copy in Hinds County. From what I was able to find and from what little I know about the family, I would surmise the following. The Trefoes came to Hinds County by 1836 when Jane was married. Those with the Trefoe name were either dead or left by 1855, the last record of the name. Charles remains an enigma. He does not show up on the 1841, 1845 or 1850 census. He and Barbara may have been living with one of the children in 1841 and 1845 but where is he in 1850 if that is he "of Hinds County" in the land transaction in 1855. Maybe he was left off the census index or his name was transcribed completely wrong (like making the "T" an "F" or an "L" or whatever). I did look 20 pages before and 20 pages after W.P. Mills entry in the census hoping he might be close. No luck. It may take a page by page search for him in the Hinds census of 1850. On a hunch, I looked in the 1850 Texas index under several spellings thinking he may have gone there and that is why William J. Trefoe had land there. No luck. It is evident, however, he did not die in Hinds County. There were no probate records at all on him. He had to have died in another county. In a letter dated April 26 1968 from Mrs E.H. Berryhill, 537 E. Howard Trefoe, Charles (I984)

The fist possible record we have of him in Georgia is in the records of the 1805 Land Lottery. It list him residing in Effingham Co. The second record is a passport issued to him in March of 1810 to go through the Creek Nation.
Henry is listed in 1816 Tax Records of Franklin Co., Mississippi.We next find him in Jefferson Co., Mississippi in the 1820 Census.
In 1830 he is located in Hinds Co., Mississippi, Henry Nichols is listed as Head of Household with 8 people living in the house.

67 24 March 1997: Received a phone call today from Dorothy Rawlings of Houston, TX, saying she is a descendant of Henry Cook, and gave me his name, as the Father of my Great Grandfather William and her Great Grandmother Rebecca. She found my name in the Navarro Co., Gen. Soc. journal, where I had posted an inquiry for information about descendants of William and Cyntha Ann Nally-Cook. Dorothy had found much of her information from the book "First Families of TEXAS", by Steven F. Austin, which notes that Henry, his wife Mary and family arrived in TX, in 1831 from Mississippi, apparently settling in the Navarro Co., area. She gave me names of some of their children. Also gave me the name of Roy & Marolyn Armstrong; Roy is also a descendant, and has much, much more information on this family. 17 April 1997: Information received from Dorothy Lee Hines-Rawlings, she reports as follows: " Mary & Henry came to Texas with 3 children, Nancy, William, & James as a part of Stephen F. Austin first settlers. They are listed in "Stephen F. Austin's Register of First Settlers". 1850 Census records show that Nancy, William and James were born in Mississippi. They lived in the community of Dresden, just south of Blooming Grove. May 1997: Received from Marolyn Ilene Young-Armstrong, a copy of "Notes and Biographical Sketches of Navarro Co., TX. Information about Henry and Mary's early times in Texas, listing their children, and who they married. Other information includes, " Henry patented the Claiborn Jarrell 640 -acre 3rd Class survey 28 August 1854. Alex Beaton patented James Cook's 3rd Class 320 acre survey, 15 May 1852. Besides Henry Cook on 1845 Robertson Co., Tax Roll, there were: Wilds K(olb?) Cook, William Cook, James B Cook, and Columbus Cook, the latter probably (Columbus T.C. Cook) who married Mary Marlin, 10 August 1844. The Marlins, Menefees, Sutherlands, Morgans and Suttons were interrelated . By 1846 Wilds K Cook, C.T.C. Cook, I.H.W. Cook, James B. Cook and Mrs Mary Cook were in Limestone Co., Tax Roll and so were some of the Marlins and Menefees. The surveys of Isaac W.H.Cook and Newton Cook are located in Navarro Co., were patented by someone else. Newton Cook married 24 June 1841 Ruthy Pruett. We believe that the Cook families of Robertson and Limestone Co., were related to Henry Cook of Navarro Co., [Refs: Robertson Co., Tax Roll: S& B: Robertson Co., Marriages: Navarro Co., Marriages: Navarro Co., Probate Records: Limestone Co., Tax Roll]." Article published by Historical or Genealogy Society of Navarro County, TX. 4 July 1997: From the Inquiry I Posted to the Internet on the COOK LIST, regarding my search for information about descendants and ancestors of Henry Cook, received response from Diana M Williams.

72 3 November 1997: Margaret Bozeman, fifth and last child of Howell Bozeman and Nancy Cook, born 16 February 1813, in Jefferson Co., MS, died 19 February 1847, in Hinds Co., MS. Margaret married William Roberts, 13 December 1832 in Hinds Co., MS, this couple had five children, see family page. After Margaret's death in 1847 her husband married second time, 20 April 1848, in Hinds Co., MS; to Margaret's brother's daughter, her Niece, Nancy Jane Bozeman, oldest child of Meady Bozeman and Rachel Sanders, they had six children; see family page. William Roberts and Nancy Jane Bozeman-Roberts left Mississippi, going to the state of Texas. For some reason Margaret is not listed in the (Bozeman Sketches, Vol.-1, Howell Bozeman 1780; by Rev. J.W. Bozeman 1954) Provided by Diana Lucile Moreman-Williams. The above account is my version of this history, written and recorded by Elnora Frances Cook-Wyrick. Bozeman, Margaret (I1615)
 
73 31 Aug 1846, Nancy Bundrant of Walton County to Nathaniel Rooks of Jackson, for $150, land on county line between Walton and Jackson. Wit. Daniel N. Cook and Johnson Sims Milsaps. 1 He worked in a gold mine in Bowden, Georgia. It is not in operation now. We were shown were the present owner lives, but were warned that he was old and afraid that people are trying to take it from him. He did not come to the door. 2John had several wives. Our ancestor is Lucinda Brambly who married him 18 Sept. 1834. He married Nancy Rendon or Bundan in 1850. Carroll Co. Ga. Marriages R929.3758 M 179T 3Carroll Co. Ga. Index p.440 says Caroline Ragin m. Alfred Rodgers Nov. 3, 1850. 4 Joseph is our ancestor. 5We do not know who she is. She is almost sure to be kin. In the summer of 1996, we got Nancy 's pension application based on John's war of 1812 service. It gave Nancy's first husband as John Bunderant. Does that mean her maiden name was Rendon? She said that John's wife was Mary M. Is Mary M. the same as Polly M. ? If so, that would mean that the marriage mentioned above of John Ragan and Lucinda Brambley was some other John Ragan and that our ancestor was Mary M. , not Lucinda Brambley. Nancy said that Mary M. Ragan, John's wife died May 04, 1848. anyhow, that is why the family sheet that lists Joseph as a child was left blan k for the wife's name (Was Mary M, Polly Granger, his mother????) Was Polly a nickname for Mary? We also wondered if some of Joseph's siblings listed as Ragan on the 1850 Carrol County , Georgia Census , were actually Nancy's children by her first marriage. We do feel sure that Joseph was a Ragan, because we found his tombstone in Blackland Cemetery in Rockwall County, Texas. [Bundrum], Nancy (I2194)

It was the source of the 2nd name for a wife. The first mar. is recorded in Jefferson Co., but the probate used a different name. I am not looking this up now. I will look up more of my notes and see what I have forgotten. I have a new thought. The will we have for James has a date on it for when it was written. It was not filed and we have no probate record for it, so we do not really know when he died. You remember that Jefferson had 3 court house fires, the last just about 10 years ago. I had read through several of their microfilmed records. I read them item by item. That is how I found the probate for Able Cook. But there was no probate for James.

After reading todays emails I looked again at the Bible pages that I have. Unfortunately, there is only a record of Henry's birth and death dates, no place of burial. Effie died in Childress, Texas but it was about 20 years after Henry. Laney was married at her mother's house which may have been in Blooming Grove in Wise County Texas. Maybe there is something there. I would love to have the CD's you've made with all the proofs. I'll be glad to pay for them. Just let me know what's envolved. Good to hear from you occasionally.

Thanks for the info on Effie Jane, do you have any idea where she is buried or who she was living with when she died?? I didn't know there was a Blooming Grove in Wise County too, Know of course about the one in Navarro Co. Be sure to look at the Predestinarian Baptist Church Records file, for Jack County Church, Effie is listed. I don't remember the dates, she was probably living with some of the children that had moved there. Sorry I can't even tell you which page she is on. I'll get a CD ready to mail by Monday.

I found that Effie Jane McPhaul m. Henry Cook. You have Effie Jane b. in Ms. Father unknown McPhaul, and Mother Sarah Jane unknown. I believe that Effie Jane was the daughter of Daniel McPhaul b. in NC and Sarah Jane Smith b. in NC. They were married in NC in 1826. They moved to Ms after 1830. Daniel and Sarah Jane were my GG grandparents. Effie was the sister of my G grandfather, John C. McPhaul. I can't find anything earlier about. Daniel. GG Uncle Charlie McPhaul, a nephew of Effie, wrote in a letter to my father that his Aunt Effie told about her brother Laughlin and a sister, Kate, riding horseback from MS to NC, to visit relatives. I noticed that one of Effie's and Henry's son was named Laughlin D. which was her brother's name. She also had a sister named Sarah Ann. Effie had a brother named William D. McPhaul, who also went to Texas. Do you have any references to him? Also my GGrandfather John had a son named James Cromwell McPhaul. Could this be the James Cromwell who married Laney Ann Cook? How are you related to Henry Cook and Effie? I hope you don't mind my writing to you about Effie, but it sounded so much like my kinfolks that I had to write.

She found the two McPhaul letters onthe disk and discovered that the first is written to her grandmother and the second was written by her g -grandmother. She is so pleased. Isn't that neat. Also, with reference to the inquiry about Effie Jane's burial site, after hearing bacjk from you I went to the Childress County website requesting information about her burial and within 30 minutes had an email fromSydney Key that she is indeed buried in the Childress Cemetery, Childress, Texas and that her tombstone is inscribed " Mrs. E. J. Cook April 12, 1837 December 28, 1904. She is buried next to a Minnie L Cook February 15, 1881 January25, 1904 Does that last one ring a bell with you? Anyway, her resting place is 430 miles from here and I am going to try to visit her grave and photograph the marker. Will let you know when this happens. The fact that she is buried in Childress makes me think even more that Henry is buried with Polly. Sure wish I had sense enough to find out where. Will close for now, hoping all is well with you.

78 About the year 1700 James Morrison left his native Scotland and immigrated to Northern Ireland, probobly Londonberry or Fermanagh. Around 1730 he came with his family to America, settling in Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania. James had four sons William, Thomas, James and Andrew. All except Thomas moved south Iredell (then Rowan) Co in the early 1750's, settling along the "Third Creek", south and west of Loray. Morrison, James (I2644)

80 According to the Pierre Chastain Assoc. The year was 1659 when Pierre Chastain was born in the ancient Province of Berry, in or near the village of Charost, which is almost the geographic center of France. Pierre Chastain was the son of Estienne Chastain and Jeanne Laurent. Pierre's father, Estienne and this grandfather, Jacques Chastain, had both served as notaire royal at Charost. Estienne was born circa 1625, the son of Jacques and Jeanne Audet Chastain. It is thought that Jacques, born circa 1598-1600, was either the son or grandson of the Estienne Chastain who fled the city of Bourges at the time of the Massacre of St. Bartholomew's Day in 1572. Proof of Pierre's first wife comes from the registers of Vevey in cantonal archives in Lausanne, Switzerland. This proof also corrects the assumption that Magdalaine de la Rochefaucald was Pierre's first wife. Pierre Chastain married Susanne Reynaud, daughter of Pierre Reynaud, from the village of Issoudun. By 1696, the Pierre Chastain family had fled from Charost across the Jura Mountains to Vevey, Canton Vaud, Switzerland to escape religious persecution. Sometime after September 1698, the family departed Vevey and was found at The Haque in The Netherlands (Holland). From there, the family moved to London, England where they remained a short time while Pierre became active in gathering together a group of French Huguenot refugees for colonization in Virginia. Pierre Chastain, his wife Susanne Reynaud Chastain and five children were among the group of 207 passengers who embarked from Gravesend, England on April 19, 1700 aboard the ship Mary and Ann of London. This ship arrived at the mouth of the James River on July 12, 1700. The group settled in Manakintown, Virginia about twenty miles up the James River. The group was given a 10,000 acre tract of land south of the James in an area once occupied by the Monacan Tribe of Indians. Pierre's wife, Susanne, died after February 1701 and before November 1701, two of the children also had died. Pierre then married Anne Soblet. Ann was the daughter of Abraham Soblet and Susanne Brian. The marriage to Anne Soblet produced eight children. Anne Soblet Chastain died on April 3, 1723. Pierre married a third time to Mary Magdaline (Verrueil) Trabue, daughter of Moise and Madelene Verrueil and widow of Antoine Trabue. Pierre Chastain died in Goochland County, Virginia in the fall of 1728. He had made his will on October 3, 1728 and this will was probated on November 20, 1728. He was buried in the family cemetery near his home. Magdeline Chastain died in late Spring of 1731, she and Pierre did not have children. The family cemetery where Pierre Chastain was buried is located on what is now Monacan Farm near Manakin Episcopal church. The Cemetery was located a few yards from the family home and contained several field stones and as many as 30 graves. A brick wall surrounding the family plot was torn down in 1929 by a farmer who used the bricks to build a house. In 1982, Lowell Chastain, then President of the Chastain Association, erected a grave marker for Pierre Chastain and constructed a chain-link fence around his grave.

81 After a breif sojorn to Tennessee, He removed to Marshfield, Webster Co., Montana, where 4 of his sons were in the mercantile business. Biographical Sketch of Christopher W. Brooks, Webster County, Missouri From "History of Laclede, Camden, Dallas, Webster, Wright, Texas, Pulaski, Phelps and Dent Counties, Missouri" The Goodspeed Publishing Company, 1889. Christopher W. Brooks, a leading and prosperous merchant of Marshfield, was born in Caswell county, N. C., February 5, 1844, and is the eldest of six children born to the marriage of Robert H. and Letha (Boswell) Brooks, both natives of North Carolina. Christopher Brooks, grand- father of our subject, was a native of N. C., and died in his native state when Christopher W. Brooks was about nine years of age. Robert H. Brooks was reared and married in Caswell county, of his native state to Miss Letha Boswell, of the same locality. After his marriage he farmed there a few years, and in the fall of 1854 moved to Missouri, settling where his son William now resides. He was mustering officer while in North Carolina, and held a major's commission. Mr. Brooks died January 19, 1862 and his wife, July 25, 1888. Young Brooks remov- ed with his parents from N. C. to Western Tenn., and after a residence in that state of three years he came to what was then Greene county, now Webster county, Mo., and here his parents died. He was reared to manhood engaged in agricultural pursuits, and received a good practical education in the common schools. He continued farming until 1876, when he removed to Marshfield and engaged in the mercantile business, to which, in 1879, he added a stock of agricultural implements. In 1866 he was married to Miss Joe Stella Dameron, a native of N. C., born in 1845, and who came with her parents to Missouri about 1851. Mr. and Mrs. Brooks became the parents of six children: McNey, Robert H., Stella, Nellie, Edna and Shirley. Mr. Brooks is a Democrat in politics and was county assessor for three years. He is a member of the Masonic fraternity, Mount Olive Lodge No. 439, and also the I. O. O. F., to which he has belonged for several years. He has been a resident of Webster county for thirty-four years, and is a highly respected citi- zen. He and wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. Brooks, Robert Holderness (I2846)
 
82 After the death of Christopher, Susannah married William Higgason Rice on December 20 1784. William Higgason Rice remarried to Sally Gooch in 1795 after the death of Susannah.. Susannah WILLIAMS and Christopher BROOKES were married.7 Christopher BROOKES48 (son of THOMAS BROOKES and MARY BLACKNALL) was born in Feb 1755 in Gloucester County, Virginia.19,49 He died about 1781 in Caswell County, North Carolina.48 I think this name in the Kingston Parish Records of Gloucester Co VA must be Christopher although it isn't clear in the record - wirtten as .....her Brookes. Apparently part of the name is unreadable. I believe this person to be Christopher Brookes found in Caswell County with other members of this family. Christopher Brooks received payment from the Hillsborough Treasury Office as found in "North Carolina Revolutionary Army Accounts" by Wynette Parks Haun. c1992. From the Court Minutes of Caswell County: p.7, Dec 1781: Susannah Brooks resigned as administrator of estate of Christopher Brooks and gave authority to Henry Williams. Copies from received from NC Archives: Adminstrators Bond in the amount of 500 pounds, dated 4 Dec 1781 signed by Henry Williams and Nath'l. Williams in presence of A. Murphey to bind Henry Williams as Administrator of Christopher Brooks, Deceased. Caswell County March Court 1782 - Inventory of estate of Christopher Brooks returned by Henry Williams, Administrator, and ordered to be recorded. Sold by David Shelton, Sheriff 24 Jan 1782. Buyers included Susannah Brookes, Henry Williams, William Holderness, Nath'l Williams, John Pane, Thos. Brookes. TN Land Entries #3989 25 Nov 1783 Warrant 313 Cr. William Brooks, heir of Sgt George Brooks. 1000 acres delived to Henry Williams. Grant to Christopher Wm Brooks. [Vol.3, p.336] [This grant is very confusing. Christopher William Brooks is believed to be the son of Christopher Brooks who died in 1781 and his wife Susannah Williams, daughter of the above Henry. George Brooks was a brother of the elder Christopher and was said to be still living until 1791 and his heir would have been daughter, not a nephew. This original grant needs to be seen for further detail. I wonder if there is an error in the abstract or even in the original grant and it should have said "Cr. William Brooks, heir of Sgt. Christopher Brooks". We know from the records of Christopher Brooks that Henry Williams was administrator of his estate.] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Susannah WILLIAMS and William Higgason RICE were married on 20 Dec 1784 in Caswell County, North Carolina.7,19 William Higgason RICE7,47 (son of Thomas RICE) was born on 12 Mar 1761 in Hanover County, Virginia.7,50 He died in 1847.50 According to his Revolutionary War Pension Application, William Rice moved to Caswell Co NC with his father in 1775. William H. Rice was guardian of Susannah's son Christopher Williams Brooks - I believe this to be the same as the Christopher W. Brooks that married Sally Holderness. 12 Mar 1804. William H.

86 Ann Faure' Rouvierre (L'Orange), Anna L'Orange? Faure; Rhoda Faure? Ann Faure L' Orange (Daniel Isaac1) was born in France circa 1688.(23) Grinnell's manuscript indicates that Ann was born in 1688 in Buckingham Co., Virginia. This, however, has to be incorrect as Buchingham Co. did not exist until the mid-1700's. The pedigree chart in The Huguenot, Publication No. 30, page 120, has Ann as the daughter of Daniel Isaac Faure and Mary Chastain. Mary was a Huguenot immigrant as a widow. The immigrant record indicates widow Faure with her four children, but names only her sons Pierre and Jean. It is believed that Ann was one of the daughters and therefore was born in France. Ann died after 1734/1735 in Virginia Faure, Ann L'Orange (I1113)

She was 12 years of age when she sailed for America. Albrecht, Anna Barbara (I2296)

Wilson Lumpkin wrote a letter to his daughter, Ann Alden in 1852 about his forebearers and stated, "My grandfather had a brother by the name of Anthony, who had 12 sons, all born of one mother. None of them were under six feet in height; their average weight being over 200 pounds, yet none of them carried any surplus flesh. I have seen four of these giant sons of old Uncle Anthony, and truly they were most extraodinary men in physical appearance and power." Died 1811. Anthony lived in Granville County, North Carolina.

97 Both these Nichols and Windham families were listed in 1755 Beaufort County, before Pitt was formed. I wish to find all the children of old William Nichols, and his wife (I assume) Jean Windham.
He may have been married twice, secondly to one Mary ___. The older William Nichols must have been born ca 1725, he was still alive in 1775. To which (Virginia?) Windham family do the above mentioned John and Elizabeth Windham belong?
John Windham must have been born ca 1690-1700?
My branch of Nichols' went to SC and then on to MS. I would love to work with the someone working the siblings, John, William, Joel, James, etc., the ones that stayed in Pitt County a little longer than mine who left before 1790.
Thank you,
