I am seeking information on the following persons who have roots in Sampson
Co. In the Wilson Co., TN, Court Minute Books, there is an entry on May 7,
1819, when William BABB and his wife, Ruth BABB, sold land in Sampson Co.,
NC, to Henry HUNT. The land was part of the estate of Leban TAYLOR, deceased,
and Ruth was one of the heirs. Laban, James, and Jonathan TAYLOR all appear
in the 1784 tax lists of Sampson Co. I am doubly descended from Ruth Ann
Taylor Powell BABB (her great-grandson, John Michael POWELL, married her
great-granddaughter, Nancy Emmaline WINFORD (a BABB descendant). Henry HUNT
and Hardy HUNT married sisters of Ruth. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

I am seeking information on the family of Stephen OATES and Elizabeth Ann

1757-1815, and his mother was Mary Ann WYATT also of Sampson County. She
died in 1801? her will was probated in 1821. Stephen siblings were Sarah
Lenny KING, Susan, Fanny Brown, Michael, Michalle, Ann Williams, Mirah also
Merat or Mirab BROWN, James. Some of these dates conflict with what I have
STEPHEN'S birth date was 1783, but some of the sources in thedocument I received
has 1788. My information comes from the Bible of Ephriam OATES and Lucy SAUNDERS.
My thirdgreatgrandfather and the youngest son of Stephen OATES and Elizabeth
Ann SHIPP. Stephen OATES and Elizabeth SHIPP'S children are William 18/Mar./1798
Sampson County North Carolina m: Sarah SELLERS 12/Feb./1833 Catalpa Pike

killed, but he was shortly mortally wounded afterwards leading his company
in the Fifteenth Alabama's assault on Little Round Top 2/Jul./1863, he died
twenty two days after he received his wounds. He for all practical purposes
is buried somewhere near where he fell. Col OATES brother in law Thomas J.
KELLY was killed in Co.E Tthirteenth Alabama in Pickett's charge. Mary's
husband James Benjamin LONG died in 1864 and he is buried at Hollywood Cemetery
Richmond. William Clavin OATES was elected Congress in 1880 and 1894 he was
elected Alabama's 29th Governor. Carraway OATES d.b.1804 he was living in
Henry County Alabama in 1850 members of his household were wife Catherine
SKINNER, sons Nathan and James and daughters Sarah and Nancy. All children
were born in Alabama. Nathan married Emeline Murphy of Henry County Alabama
5/Jun./1856. I have not found out anything bout the rest of the children.
Stephen was a born in 1805 in Sampson County and he died in Texas in 1867.
Catherine was born either in 1806-07 she married William J. GALLOWAY in 1848
also in Henry County Alabama, she andher husband might have moved to Texas
after the War for Southern Independence.James was born in 1809 and he went
to Texas with his brother Stephen, but never returned he died in 1863. The
twins Peribhy also called (Phoebe) and Sena were born in 1810. They married
twin brothers Tolbert and Albert PARISH. They were married in Henry County
10/Feb./1841, now the Henry County Marriage Records mentions Perihby or Phoebe's
marriage. Robert was born in 1819 in Sampson County and he lived in Alabama
until after the War for Southern Independence when he moved to Texas in 1872.
John Charles and Ann M. were also twins born 8/May/1822 in Sampson County
North Carolina, they were both marriedin Henry County Alabama, but John Charles
moved to Texas after the second marriage and Ann married in Henry County
also and she moved to Claybank Alabama she and her husbandare buriedin the
Claybank Baptist Cemetery in Dale County Alabama. Henderson was born in Sampson
County NorthCarolina and he moved to Yazoo County Mississippi after the Mexican
American War. Emeline was born 1825 also in Sampson County. And she lived
all her adult life in Alabama. My thirdgreatgrandfather Ephriam was born
next 27/Jan./ 1826 SampsonCounty and he like most of his siblings grew up
in Alabama. He did not move he stayed right in Henry County Alabama married
16/Aug./1849 Mary Ann Ward. Their children were Melinda Ann 1851-1929 married

born 1834 she married George Solomon Hutto it is believed that she died either
in Texas or on the way to Texas. I would like someone to if possible alookup
on this family, please. I do not know if Stephen OATES and Elizabeth Ann
SHIPP had a Bible or not his greatgreatgrandfather James was married by Rev.
George HAWES, who must have been a Anglican Priest. So he might have records
made in the parish church where he was buried Stephen OAtes died in 1835
and he was buriednearthee Carolina foothills between the HAuse and Cape Fear
River. Before I forget the Haywood R..Faison Manuscript contains some information
about the family. As well as the manuscript copy of the Berkley Parish Register
compiled by Reverend George HAWES the pastor that performed James OATES and
Elizabeth Perry EIVANS in 1695. If someone could do a look up and send me
