This is my great great grandfather. A.B. was born 10 Sep 1810 (my birthday is 10 Sep)in Duplin County, N.C., d. 26 Jun 1895 in Autauga County, Ala. On 27 Jun 1850, he married Mary Catherine Elizabeth Scott, b. 11 Dec 1833 in Autauga County; d. 29 Jan 1904 in Autauga County.
I have found several places where it is said that A.B.'s father was Merit, b. 1739 in Bertie County, N.C. I have a problem with the age difference. Merit would have been 61 years old when A.B. was born.
Attached are pictures of A.B.'s and Elizabeth's tombstones. -Patricia Manning Nobles
