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?

BROCK, HENRY, ITHA, PERCISE, PERSISE, PRECISE, 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.
