Can someone please set me straight on the mysterious Asa and Winny Carawan?
I have recieved information from a good source that Asa and Winny were the parents of five children: 1) Christopher (1820-1873 married Patsey Watson) 2) Benjamin Robertson Carawan (1828-1890 married Sarah Elizabeth Holton) 3) Joseph G. (Green?) Carawan (1829-1895 married Nancy White and Polly Hall) 4) Marcus Carawan (1830-1917 married Mary Elizabeth Fulford and Marietta Alcock) 5) Bernard Carawan (1833-1928 married Melissa O'Neal and Nancy Elizabeth Leary. These were all Pamlico County NC Carawans, and most researchers should be familiar with them.
My problem is that up until this point I had these as the children of one Benjamin Carawan (1784-1839) and Delilah White, along with some other children: Selina, Frances, Ebbin Wallace, Daniel, and Ann, all about which I have no further information.
So which are the parents of all of these children? I have not run across any records of an Asa Carawan anywhere, save an estate record listed on John McGowan's page with a date of 1847. What are the particulars of Asa and Winny? Anyone have any ideas? Or do I have the entire family wrong?
