I am searching for the parents of Matthew Privett b.1810 NC - d.Bef 1880 AL. He claims to have been born in NC on census, but I have found no record. He moved to Alabama as early as 1835 where "Mattnew Privit of DALLAS Co purchased 40.06 acres of land in MARENGO Co AL." I estimate he married to unknown Abt 1830 and had 2 sons William Thomas Privett 1834-1910 and John W Privett 1836-1915. (I am a descendant of John W) Matthew later married Mary Ann Davis 27 Oct 1846 in Perry Co, AL. They had several children.
If any one has any knowledge of Matthew or his parents, please let me know. I am very willing to share all I have on him and his family. Thanks--Pam
