Joanne, Hi. I find this posting to be a very curious one for me. My family is from Pulaski, VA. One of my gggrandmother's sister was married to John W. Pagan. Lester was an associated family also. Their last names were O'briant. My grandmother's grandmother was Mary Ellen O'Briant. Her sister was Rosa Zettia O'Briant Pagan. Her children married Lesters. They were both daughters of Francis O'Briant (b. 1822 Granville, NC, and their mother was Mary Ann Reynolds Richardson O'Briant. I have been trying to trace Francis to his family for years now. Sounds like we are related.
