Is your ggg grandfather 's wife named Anna Pendergrass? Some information I have shows that William Southerland may have been Henry Southerland(b. 1818 NC)'s father. I'm looking for brothers of Henry, possibly Joseph, Alfred, William who came to AL in early 1800s.

Ransom(e) Southerland of NC married Charity Alston Kimbrough d of Nathaniel Kimbrough & Mary Alston on April 5th 1778.
The kids of Ransom & Charity Southerland:
Rebecca Alston S.
Phillip S.
John S.
Solomon S.
Elizabeth S.
Mary S.
Sarah Kimbrough S.

Ransom Southerland died Sept. 2nd 1822 Wake Co., NC. As for his brith I do not know any thing but, I think that Ransom MAY be the brother of Mordecai Southerland who is part of my ancestry. As for proof of this I have none but, both Ransom & Mordecai appeared in NC about the same time and no parents in sight. I am still looking for any info on where they came from and if they are really brothers.

Hope this helps, if I find any info on Ransom's brith I will let you know!

No, I don't have any information on parents. William James Southerland's information after he came to Arkansas is all I have been able to find.

Do you think there is a link?

Kim: I don't get it. In light of the marriage documented in Brent Holcomb's "Marriages of Granville County, North Carolina, 1753-1868, Issue 3", p. 315:

"Sutherland, Ransom & Charity Alston, 5 April 1778; Peyton Wood, bm; John Lewis Jr., Edmd. Read, wit."

...how does one rationalize the statement that "Ransom(e) Southerland of NC married Charity Alston KIMBROUGH ...."?

Charity Alson was the daughter of Solomon Alston Jr.

Sorry old post! I have been doing more research and found that the person that gave me that info was wrong. I am now very careful in what I get from others and Always do my own research!

Thanks for catching that! Yes Ransom Southerland married Charity Alston daughter of Solomon Alston and she is listed in Solomon's Will.

The said Charity Alston KIMBROUGH didn't marry when she was young and had one daughter by a unknown man. She later married and moved out of state. They didn't have any kids together.
