Thank you for your kind reply. I don't believe we are discussing the same line, however. My WILLIAM P. MELTON is from Onslow Co, NC, his wife's name was HOLLAND Elizabeth. Unfortunately I do not know Holland's maiden name ... yet! They were both born in NC in the 1820's. I do not know the names of either of their parents ... yet! But I do have info on their descendants.
I was wondering if the MARY ANN MELTON who I saw listed in the Onslow County, North Carolina census of 1790 might be a link to my WILLIAM P. MELTON. It doesn't seem so.
Again, thank you. Good luck hunting!
