Charity Hollingsworth, was born about 1755, her parents were Henry Hollingsworth and Mary Murray. I don't have a death date or marriage date. She married Cannon Cason (Caison) I have that they had the following children: Hillery Cannon Miles Laodicoa Jean Polly Those names are all I have. In her will she wrote the following: 1/1/1808 I, Charity Caison of the county of Sampson and state of North Carolina being of sound and perfect mind and memory..on this first day of January one thousand eight hundred and eight do make and publish this my last will and testament in manner following that is to say first and...to my son -in-law Jonathan Fryer five shillings to him and his heirs. Item 1 give and bequeath to my son Hillery Cason five shillings Item I give and bequeath to my son Cannon Cason five shillings Item I give and bequeath to my son Miles Cason five shillings Item I give and bequeath to my daughter Laodicea Chesnutt five shillings Item I give and bequeath to my daughter Jean Cason my Negro woman Cleo and all the rest of my property of each and every parcel and kind whatsoever I give and bequeath to be equally divided between my daughter Polly Cason and my said daughter Jean Cason to them and their heirs and I do hereby appoint my son Cannon Cason Executer to this my last will and testament. In witness where of I have here unto set my hand and seal this day and date first mentioned. Charity Cason: her mark and seal Witness:...Chesnutt, Hillary (?( Cason, Jacob Chesnutt Now Jonathan Fryar, RS, was married to Elizabeth (last name unknown) Since Charity Cason left money to Jonathan Fryar and his heirs, it leads one to believe that Elizabeth was probably Elizabeth Cason Fryar, and she had died before her mother wrote the will. If anyone can help me with this brick wall I would be very grateful.
