I don't think I have any information on Judith Wimberley but could this deed refer to the same Charles and Judith King (not sure what book this is from but 205-206 is the page number I believe.

205-(206) CHARLES KING of Bertie Co to MICHAEL MARTIN of same, 1774, 33pds 6s8p proclamation. 160 acres which was taken from DANIEL FRASUR. Also signed by JUDITH KING. Wit: NATHAN CULLER, JOSIAH WARREN Nov Ct 1774

I've always assumed that "taken from Daniel Frasur" meant that Judith was Daniel's daughter and had inherited the land, but if this is Charles King and Judith Wimberley, what's the connection to Daniel?

I'll be happy to share what I have on the Bertie County Wimberly family. I can go back to Penina (or Penia) Wimberly, born Oct. 26, 1790, but the information beyond that is spotty. I think her father was Levi, Jr., son of Levi, Sr., son of John, Sr.

Please let me know if you would like access to my info. I would love to see what you have.

Surnames: Wimberly, Wimberley, Cotton, Cotten

Zephaniah Wimberley was born 1798 SC according to the 1850 census. He was a shoemaker in Gadsden county, FL with a female Elizabeth that is 20 years his junior born 1820 NC and children:Ezekiel G., Elizabeth, Martha, William, Frances A., Penny, and Amanda. In 1860 he is a farmer in Russell county, AL. Some of his family such as son Ezekiel Wimberley (also a shoemaker) moves to southwest Georgia in Decatur county.
We do not know who Zephaniah's parents are but a DNA test of a Wimberley male showed a very close match with several Cotten males.

Our Wimberley family probably originally came from Virginia or the Carolinas and that would seem to greatly enhance the chance of a connection between Cottens and Wimberleys. We've been told that George Wimberley, whose daughter Zilpha married Amos Cotten, had two other unmarried daughters at the time of his death in 1768. And Maybe one of them had a child out of wedlock with one of the many Cottens in the area and passed on the Wimberley name. There doesn't seem to be any way to make the connection at this point. The similiarity of the names Zilpha and Zephaniah is interesting. There are also many similar names in the Wimberley family including the similarity of the occupation of shoemaking (Ezekiel Wimberley of Bertie county, NC, 1700's)
Ezekiel G. Wimberley married Eliza Ann Chason. Their first born was Georgiann Wimberley, born 1854 in Alabama. Could she be named for her father's father: George and her mother's middle name Ann?? There is the next daughter Elizabeth "Lizzie" born 1858 in Alabama; then a boy Zephaniah born June 1860 Alabama, dies December 1860 Russell county, Alabama. Then 2 more daughters and 5 more sons were born. Comments?
