Searching for information on Newman JONES and Tabitha RAKESTRAW who married in Rockingham County, NC on Feb. 26, 1814 (bond marriage). I think Newman JONES possibly came from Mecklenburg Co. VA through Granville Co. NC and settled in Rockingham Co., NC on the Dan River. He later purchased 100 acres and was a jailer in Wentworth in Rockingham Co., NC. Tabitha RAKESTRAW JONES was the daughter of Nancy RAKESTRAW and ??? and was born abt. 1796-1799 in VA. Her mother born abt. 1773 in VA came to Rockingham Co., NC with 2 young daughters and she owned 10 acres. Tabitha RAKESTRAW JONES died between 1850-1860 in Rockingham Co., NC. Newman and Tabitha RAKESTRAW JONES had seven children: Lucretia, William H., Cynthia, Nancy Melvina, Robert J., James M., Amanda Elizabeth. Robert J. and James M. both served in the Civil War and died in service. If you have any information on any of the above people, please contact me and I will be glad to share other information I have.
