Surnames: Adcock, Moorman, Carter
Adcock: Buckingham Co., Virginia. I am searching for information on James Adcock who married Rachel Moorman in North Carolina (?Anson/Richmond Co.) in about 1780 and died in 1789. They had a son Travis who is my direct ancestor. There are other Adcocks from Buckingham County, Virginia who settled in Anson Co, NC. I suspect that my James is one of them also. Does anyone know if John Adcock & Elizabeth Carter had a son James? I list their children as John, Carter, Edward, Henry, Joseph & Phoebe.

Poe Surname

Classification: Query
Edited: 18 Nov 2004 8:31AM GMT
Surnames: Poe, Harbor, Harbour
. I am also researching the Poe line who came from Mason County, looking for parents of Nathan Poe and Louisa Harbor or Harbour . Their children were Mary, Thomas, John, Nannie, Chas. E, Martha, the twins Louanna and Louella who died in a fire in Clay Co. Missouri. According to some of Nathan's grandchildren they had an Aunt Mattie which they believe was Mary's nickname. but they are not sure of this. Most were born in Mason County Ky. They moved to Ky, around the 1970's I think. It could have been a little earlier than this date. Nathan Poe's father was from MD, but he himself was born in Ky. Louisa his wife was born in Ky, while her father was born in VA, and her mother born in GA. This is what the Census of Clay Co. MO states. I would be interested in marriage dates and birthdates of these people if anyone has a book to help me look them up in Mason County, KY. . Anyone interested, plese email me at Rwin777@aol.com or Bonesdiggin@juno.com

OBITUARY

Appomattox & Buckingham Times



Died near Forbes, in Buckingham county, March 01, 1900, R. Wootton aged 77 years 3 months and 11 days. His funeral sermon was preached by Rev. J. J. Spencer, July 29, 1900, to a large and attentive concourse of friends. The text was taken from Job xiv. 10: "But man dieth and wasteth away; yea man giveth up the ghost, and where is he?" It was a very able discourse, and was calculated to make a lasting impression on all who heard it. All of the children, and grandchildren of the deceased were present, as were also many other relatives and friends.

A FRIEND.
