This is a 20 year old brick wall. Reason was born circa 1800 and died in Sampson County in 1870. His wife, Jane, is not listed in his probate file, so presumably she predeceased him. Both are on the 1850 and 1860 census, but not on the 1870. There is a question on his wife’s maiden name – is it Stewart or Tew? Reason is in land division records as an heir-at-law to the Stewart family, and a Jane Lockerman/Lockamy is listed as owning Lot 9 in other Stewart estate land records. However, Reason is also listed in estate records for John Tew, father of Jane Tew. My question is two-fold: 1) Who are Reason’s parents? 2) What is the correct maiden name for his wife?
