a#ALEXANDERALEXANDERa#HERRINGHERRING posted by Susan Tabor Herring on Saturday, July 15, 2000

I am looking for information on the parents of Sarah HERRING who married Andrew Levi (or Levy) ALEXANDER. They are said to have left Chester County, South Carolina in the mid-1800s for Louisiana, stopping in Jackson, Mississippi along the way, before moving on to Louisiana in the mid to late 1800s. Sarah was born 10 Nov 1821 and died 10 Oct 1886 in Lincoln Parish, LA. Sarah had a sister named Jane, born in 1835, who came to live with them after Sarah was stricken with rheumatoid arthritis. Sarah and Levi had nine children. I found only one ALEXANDER and one HERRING on the 1840 Chester County census. They were Sample ALEXANDER and John HERRING. I understand Duplin County is known as the "Herring Nest" and wonder if anyone has information on a John Herring who may have lived in Duplin County, NC and moved to Chester County, SC and had two daughters by the name of Sarah A. and Jane. Thanks, Susan Tabor Herring 231 North Main Homer, LA 71040

Seek information regarding the Duplin County marriage of John HURST b. abt. 1765. John was married at least two times, if not three. Some researchers claim that he also married a Miss Blythe GODBEE in Duplin Co. His other marriages were to an Elizabeth Betty HEATH and to an Elizabeth BLITCH. These two marriages are documentated. Would appreciate any possible infor regarding this GODBEE female. Does the GODBEE surname even appear in the records of Duplin County?

m#MEARSMEARS posted by Jane Mears on Friday, August 18, 2000

I have been reading the Duplin County pages and find them most interesting. Perhaps you can help me with the following: According to the Colonial Records, Robert MEARS was granted 640 acres in Duplin Co. in 1751. In the Col. Records, Vol. 1V, p.1030, at a Council held at New Bern, 7 apr. 1750, George MEARS was appointed Justice of the Peace of Duplin County. In theCol. Records, Vol. VI, p335, the Council held at Newbern 21 May 1760, George MEARS was appointed on the New Commission of the Peace for Hanover County, N.C. Are there any descendants of Robert or George still in Duplin County? Is anyone able to fill me in on the gap of several generations. Thank you.

This is what I have so far. Dollie Ann JONES (my great-great grandmother) was born to Sarah C. JONES in 1871 in Duplin County. She married George Henry MILLER, who was born to a South African woman and Daniel MILLER in Duplin County in 1840. I believe he was a slave. Dorothy and George later moved to Mt. Olive, NC. He died in 1920 and she died in 1960. This was George's second marriage. Their children include Ada Lee Miller Jones (1904-1990)- my great grandmother- Richard Miller, John Miller, Dollie Miller Barfield, and Dorothy Miller. I believe we are also related to the MCKEEVORS in Duplin County. Please e-mail me if you have any further info.
