I would like to know his mothers name and what happened to his neices and nephews and information on the two aunts. His father was white, maybe last name WELLS. Pls respond to ally3729@aol.com Thanks. PS. Where can I get a Duplin /Wayne co. Society or Heritage book? Granddaughter, Alice West Ferguson

Hill John borned 1790-94 in Wayne or Duplin md Edney ??. In 1840 they lived on Buck Swamp in Wayne Co., in 1850 they lived Wayne Co SS of Neuse, they moved to Dupin Co. before 1860, by 1870 they both had died. They had Moses, Lewis H., Ananias, Elizabeth A., Adney A., and Edith Amanda. Moses lived in Jo., Ananias lived around Fasion, as did his brother Lewis and their sisters lived with Lewis. Ananias md Emma Emily Williams and when she died he md. Lizzie Brittain Jan.16 , 1876. Ananias was in the Civil War from Jo. CO, all I know of him is that he in buried at Kenanvilles in Golden Valley, Don't know where Emma is buried are any dates., as the same with Lizzie. They had Buchanna, Cora Dunn (Joseph Dunn), John Thomas, Laura A.Coats(Rouden Coats), Annie maybe Taylor, by the second md. Jodie, Sara, Hank, Orxie. The last group is only by a ?. My guess is that John could be the son or grandson of John and Jean Kenan Hill of Duplin Co. Because he lived close to Dr. Bucker Hill in Wayne and Duplin. Any help is more than welcome.

I'm very interested in contacting ANY descendants of James David SWINSON and Della Louise CASTEEN in regards to an ongoing Swinson family genealogy search. James and Della resided in both Onslow and Duplin Counties as far as I know. Myself and several others are attempting to compile an in-depth Swinson publication concerning the children of Jesse SWINSON and Calestia Ann BATTS. We'd love to hear from you. Chris Swinson

I just have a question. I don't know who my birth parents are but I was born in Duplin County on 7-11-1964. My parents were both red or auburn haired and were both in their twenties when I was born. I was adopted at the age of six weeks and was staying in a foster home (?) of an older couple. I do know that my maternal grandfather was an alcoholic and my maternal uncle was mentally challenged. If you can help me, it would be gratefully appreciated. Thank you, Alicia Isley Swofford

I am researching the WILLIAM BRUMLEY (b.1780 NC) line. His wife HETTY or HETTA (b. 1788 NC) said to be a Counts. I have located the KHUINCE family in the 1790 census, ie CHRISTOPHER, GEORGE JR., and SR., JOHN JR. and SR., and PHILLIP. I believe this family later moved to Grainger Co., TN. Any information connecting HETTY to them will be appreciated.
