Classification: Query
Surnames: Barker, Overton, Avery, Weeks, Barnes
This group of relatives and friends left Perquimans Co. NC by wagon train around 1810. Catherine Cynthia OVERTON, b. 1790, Perquimans Co., widow of Vinson Avery (m. 1809 Perquimans Co.); Catherine's sister Lecia OVERTON m. Vinson's brother Frederick Avery, Jr. Was Sophia OVERTON who m. John BARKER, their relative? I don't have first names for this generation of the Weeks and Barnes families, but in the next generation, Elzina Weeks m. Willis Avery, son of Catherine Overton and Vinson Avery. Elzina's sister, Malinda Weeks married Jesse Barker. These families migrated together from Perquimans Co. NC to Davidson Co. TN to Lincoln Co. MO, to Bastrop and Williamson Co., TX, by the mid 1800's. I'd love to correspond with anyone else researching these folks, particularly the Barkers.
