Ch. of James N. NORMAN (1801-aft.1870), Gilmer/Calhoun Cos.WV

Classification: Query
Surnames: Norman, Jeffreys
I am looking for proof that James N. Norman and his wife, Catherine Summers, had a daughter named Mary (b. 1831) who married Benjamin Jeffreys of Yellow Creek, Calhoun County, WV.

I have proof the wife of Benjamin Jeffreys was Mary Norman, but I have never independently ever been able to find a record that stated the name of her parents. The names Benjamin Jeffreys and James N. Norman appear together on a number of deeds in Calhoun County, so there seems to be a connection between the two. The history of the Norman family written by Don Norman states that James N. Norman had a daughter named Mary who married Benjamin Jeffreys. I haven't found anything to contradict what Don Norman has written, but neither have I found any primary source that supports it.

When I contacted Mr. Norman, I posed the same question to him and he graciously checked his material. He couldn't find what primary material he used as he didn't have room to store all of it, so wasn't sure.

I am seeking to verify this link in my family tree. I am in no way trying to find fault or be critical of Don Norman's work, but merely verifying it.

I appreciate any clues that anyone can provide. Thanks!
