I have been advised to post this message to the Bladen Co. List. I am trying, on my mother's side, to find Mary DAVIS. She is the grandmother, and raised, Reverend Robert M. SESSOMS, a Baptist Minister who helped found several churches in Bladen and Robeson Counties. R. M. Sessoms' parents died young and according to the 100th anniversary of Galeed Church, was raised by his grandmother, Mary Davis, and he was the first pastor. He was born 5 Apr 1817, d. 23 Jan 1898, m. 7 Feb 1847 to Sarah Jane SMITH (daughter of John Smith). Any assistance on these grandparents would be greatly appreciated.
