Surnames: Basnight Barnes
Cornelia Ann was the daughter of Henderson Barnes and Sena Ambrose; thus the name of one of Luther's children Eugene Henderson Basnight. One of the Luther's children is still living in Plymouth, NC---Ralph. I am the son of Milton. We use to visit your grandparents in Virginia. Are you the child of cousin Carolyn? I have a lot of research on our family roots and will be glad to help you if I can.

Gordon,
Yes, I am the oldest child of Carolyn Corneilla Spruill (Smith).I'm very interested in any info you have. Mom thought all her mothers's (Elma Odell Basnight) Siblings had passed. I remember more of them from when grandpa Spruill died in 1968 than from when grandma passed in AUG 1982. I lost a daughter last year and 2 of mom's older siblings have passed( Ruth & Harold).
Thanks,
Atlee

Can trace the Basnights (Basnet, Bassnett) back to their arrival in Lynhaven from England in 1636. Below is some Spruill information that might interest you. I will be glad to share any information I have.

Do you have any info on a Richard Henry Spruill who married Elenore Rogerson or his son Richard Edward/Edwin Spruill who married Alexina Mansfield?

Also an A.D. Spruill who married Nancy Davenport. I know of one son named Joseph Haywood Spruill.

Thanks,
Pam
