FLEET posted by Keith
Raynor on Wednesday, October 1, 1997
FAIRCLOTH,Mark (b.1810), wife Penelope (Pennie), two childern that I know
of are: William Mark, FLEET. The childern were born and raised in Sampson
Co., NC. They moved to Cumberland Co., NC by the time they were married in
the late 1850's because both childern are in the Cumberland County Census
of 1860, but Mark and Penelope aren't in Sampson or Cumberland Co. Would
like to find out what happened to them and who was Mark's father?

I am looking for information on my 2nd ggf, John KEENER,one of the earliest
settlers of Rabun Co., GA. He was born abt 1806 in NC, and married Margaret
CROON of SC on 23 Dec 1830 in Rabun Co., GA. Records indicate that he was
living in Rabun Co., GA during the 1820s. Perhaps he is descended from the
KEENERs for whom Keener in Sampson Co., NC is named. I am willing to share
information on his many descendants. .

I am researching the DARDEN and MONK families of Sampson County. Both lived
in the area between Newton Grove and Clinton. Joseph Darden (d. 1816) is
the earliest known Darden to date. Other Dardens were living in Sampson and
Duplin County, NC at the same time. I am trying to connect these families
as well. The Monk family is well researched, but I continue to collect historical
information on the family.

PRECYTHE posted by Bill Brock on Saturday, November 8, 1997
I wish to include the name PRECISE. Through the years this name has undergone
several changes in spelling, but I believe this is the correct spelling.
It has also been PERSISE, PERCISE, etc.and for the last couple of generations
PRECYTHE. They have been in Piney Grove Township in Sampson County and more
recently in Faison, N.C. They have also been in Wayne County for many years.
I have been attempting to trace them for several years but have had some
difficulty because of the spelling. My mother was ITHA PRECYTHE BROCK, her
father: HENRY C. PRECYTHE, my great grandfather: Joseph PRECISE, my great
great grandfather: John PRECISE. I know there were some PRECISE in Virginia
in several counties,but I have been unable to connect them up thus far, although
I am still working on it. I would be quite happy if I could find the parents
of John Precise. I will be glad to furnish additional information on the
PRECISE-PRECYTHE familes should anyone wish.
AUTREY posted by
Sandy on Saturday, November 8, 1997
I should have sent the county information along to begin with. My records
show Cornelius AUTREY was born in Pitt Co, or Edgecombe Co. between 1740
and 1747. They then went to Sampson Co. Some of the Autreys went to Cumberland,
NC but they were not my branch. My people came on south to Georgia in 1818.
