I am interested in finding a connection between the Jersey Settlers of Rowan Cty, NC and the Jersey Settlers of Adams Cty, MS.
My third great-grandfather was Archibald Palmer born NC in 1758. He may have served in for a short time in the Revolutionary War as Archbald Parmer.
I don't find him again until 1782 in Adams Cty, MS. There he marries Hannah Carter (daughter of Nehemiah and Rachel Minthorne Carter, originally from New Jersey )whose family is noted to be an affiliated family of the Jersey Settlers of Adams Cty., MS.
This seems to be too great a coincidence not to pursue. Unfortunately I have no idea of Archibald's parents or possible siblings. Has anyone found any link between the two sets of Jersey Settlers? Has anyone found an Archibald Palmer among North Carolina records?
Any leads would be greatly appreciated. I would be happy to share any information I have.
