1790 - U.S. Census Records, Hillsborough District, Randolph County, NC. Timothy Code and family and his Brother, William Code and family. Both are listed as being born in 175? His father James, and wife Sarah Womack, were the progenitors of many of the Cude/Cody ( The spelling was changed by part of the family ) families in Randolph and Davidson Counties, North Carolina. James was likely a son of Pierce Cude of Spotsylvania/ Orange County, Virginia. James CUDY/ CODDY b: before 1730 in CAPON VALLEY, Hampshire Co?., VA: Death: in Halifax Co., NC?

Timothey CUDE (CODE) Birth Date: 175? Birthplace: North Carolina Volume: 31 Page Number: 316 Reference: Heads of fams. at the first U.S. census. NC. By U.S. Bureau of the Census. Washington, 1908. (292p.):98--George Horner, born in 1725 in Maryland or Virginia. The name of his first wife is unknown, and she probably died in Hampshire County, West Virginia by 1760, after the family had moved from York County, Pennsylvania to Frederick County, Virginia, now West Virginia, in 1748. They had three proven children; William is noted below; Ann married John Owens; and James. After the death of his first wife, George married Elizabeth Holloway about 1755, in Orange County, North Carolina. Unknown when and where Elizabeth was born but she died after 1784 in Orange County. George died 1791-1799 in St. Maryâ€™s District. They had five children; Lydia married Timothy Cude; ( Most People show Timothy as her second husband) Christina; George (twin) married Priscilla Winslow; Thomas (twin) married Sarah Fussel; and Priscilla married William Montgomery. According to the Lower Shenandoah Valley by: J. E. Norris 1890, â€œGeorge Horner laid warrant for 200 acres of land in Frederick County in 1748. About 1760 he moved to St. Maryâ€™s District of Orange County, North Carolina where he had a plantation on the Little River. If this is correct, than the Horners were probably still in Orange Co. NC when Timothy married or new to Randolph Co. NC.: My guess is that "Liddy" and Timothy married in North Carolina in 1766. They most likely had the marriage licensed in NC in 1767.The first record of Timothy, we can find is Signs Regulator Advertisement No. 9, April 1768 Spottsylvania Co. became Orange Co., so they were all from the same area. In the Rev. War the Cudeâ€˜s listed all enlisted in VA.,-William Cody most likely married Sinai Stacy, daughter of Simon and Judith Tolson Stacy. Simon and Judith Tolson Stacy were from Overwharton Parish, Stafford County, Virginia. Mason Combs (c1714-1785) and wife Sarah were also from Overwharton Parish and the Combs and Stacy families not only migrated together from Stafford County to Frederick County, Virginia by 1750, and to Rowan (Surry) County, North Carolina by 1768, but they knew each other in Stafford and Frederick Counties, Virginia , and their descendants intermarried. All these people came from the same area
Randolph County was formed in 1779 from a portion of Guilford County that previously (1770) was part of Rowan County.

Godfrey Ridge and wife Ann had purchased land on the Uwharie River adjoining John Bell, who had John CUDE (Coady) in his household. James is probably Timothyâ€™s father. Where was Timothy staying? He was married in 1766 or 1767 and if we except his birth date as 1648, he would have been 14 in 1762. John and William Cude (Codey) were first mentioned as buyers at the estate sale of Benjamin Boucher, who also migrated to Rowan County from Orange County, Virginia .1762 (Rowan County) Estate sale of Benjamin Boucher. Buyers at sale: William Ridge, Owen Griffen, William Morris, William Draper, Ben Grifen, Wm. Roye, John Codey, Wm Brucksher, George Roy, Wm Megee, Robert Anderson, Wm Robason, John Blalock, Henry Thomson, Wm Codey. ( If John and William were born in the mid 1740â€™s they would have been teenagers at this time.) The next record of James was in 1782 in Superior Court in Hillsborough.
