Surnames: Robert Bingham, Sarah Essie Walker Bingham
Robert Binham was born June 2, 1872. He was married to Sarah Essie Walker Bingham (some native american heritage is reported to be here). Robert and Sarah lived in Macon County, North Carolina and family history recalls Cartoogajay and natahala Gorge as possible homesite. Robert was buried in Gillespie Chapel Cemetery in Macon county on 2-16-1949. He lived in Gaston County for several years. Family stories were told about Oscar Bingham (I don't know if he was an Uncle on which family side).Oscar was married to Mammie Ledford in Macon county. Any informatio will be of great help! thanks

Robert Lee being my great grandpa born July 2 1872 and died Feb 16 1949. Sarah Essie born Dec. 12 1880 and died Sept. 8 1929. Robert Lee re-married my great grand mother Mary Lizzie ????? Born Oct. 9 ???? They had 3 kids Sarah (1933) Francis (1937) Anna (1941) Robert Lee and Sarah Essie had Charlie (named after Essie's brother Charlie Oscar), Walter, Reid, Robert Lee Jr.(died at about Age 8) Haddie, Lucy,Mary, Helen, Edna, Maggie, Tommy and Jessie which were twins died at birth and Annie died as an infant.

Here are some census and marriage records that may help on this Bingham line. Census spelling will be as it appears on the original census microfilm. Where unsure of spelling, I have put a question mark.

R. H. Bingham married Altha Griggs on 20 Nov 1861, Macon Co., NC. (Note that they were living together in 1860 census and she was listed as Altha Bingham. Obviously, she was a second wife.)

R. L. Bingham (25) married S. E. Bingham (19) on 15 May 1898.

It appears that Sarah Essie was a Bingham and married a Bingham, or else she married a Bingham before she married Robert. (I doubt this since she was only 19 when she married Robert and I find no Bingham marrying a Sarah E. in the Macon County marriage book.)

G. W. Bingham (21) married Louisa Hodgins (18) on 4 Feb 1884, Macon Co., NC.

William A. Bingham (21) m. A. E. Fulcher 918) on 10 Apr 1882, Macon Co., NC.

Bart L. Bingham (20) to Nerva Gregory (20) on 22 Oct 1903, Macon Co., NC

(According to this census, Sarah Essa was born after the 1880 census was taken, then married before 1900 census was taken (the 1890 census burned), so does not appear as a child in a family in census records.)

If Robert and Sarah Essa died in Macon County, NC, there will be a death certificate on file in the office of the Register of Deeds for Macon County in Franklin, NC.

The Robert (husband of Sarah Essa and probably the son of Robert and Altha Bingham) was listed as 9 in 1880 census, making him born about 1871; as born July 1877(?), age 23 in 1900 census; age 38 in 1910 census, making him born about 1872, and 51 in 1920 census making him born about 1869.
