I am searching for the parents and spouse of MARTHA BRITE in Camden Co. as early
as 1779 and as late as her death in 1825.
In 1779, there is a Deed of Sale from WILLIAM TAYLOR to Elizabeth Old and
witnesses were Anson Brite, MARTHA BRITE and Samuel Brite. It was registered in
Camden Co., NC 10 Apr. 1779. Anson and Samuel are possibilities for her husband
and we wonder if William might be a relative ot Martha.
MARTHA had at least 2 children, John and Charity. She gave land to son, John in
1796. In her will, registered in 1825, she mentioned her
daughter, Charity Williams and grandchildren, Fanny, William and Jane Williams.
No husband for Martha was mentioned in either of those documents, so he was
probably deceased before 1796.
Next, in Camden Co. in 1838, Charity Williams gave land (a gift deed)
to her daughter, Fanny Sawyer - "lands that Henry Brite bought of EVAN TAYLOR".
So here's another Taylor connection and Henry as a possible husband for MARTHA.
And finally, in Camden Co. in 1848, Fanny Sawyer sold land (same land?) to Anson
Brite (same as 1779 or a later generation?) "her interest in ESDRAS TAYLOR
land". So still another TAYLOR connection.
Does anyone know of TAYLOR wills, etc. that might shed more light on a
BRITE/TAYLOR connection for MARTHA? Thanks for any help over this brick
Reverend Jeremiah Etheridge
Submitted By: Russell C. Etheridge III
I have been trying to tie my 3g grandfather, Rev. Jeremiah Etheridge,
b.ca.1780-b/4 1843, to his father. Who, I believe, was Thomas Etheridge Sr. of
Camden Co., as shown on the 1790 census.
Jeremiah married Sarah/Sally Lurry Forbes abt.1810-13. He and Sally sold a farm
in Camden County in 1813 and moved to Currituck and on to Pasquotank by 1825. He
was the pastor of the Elizabeth City First Baptist Church while in Pasquotank.
This is where his trail grows cold and I can't find his place or time of death.
The following information was copied from the Currituck County website.
November Term 1819
29 Nov 1819
Ordered that Jeremiah ETHERIDGE be appointed guardian to John BAXTER orphan of
John BAXTER Senr. Dec. Who entered into bond with William WILSON
November Term 1823
Cartwright BELL named as one of the Justices
Isaac BAXTER named paymaster for the militia who guards the jail
Jeremiah ETHERIDGE petitions the court to sell certain property belonging to
Joseph BAXTER orphans. Ordered that the pray of the petition be granted.

I have been trying for twenty years to find the parents of Malachi Sawyer. I
would really appreciate any help you could provide.
Malachi was born 1804 -1810, Married Elvia Eason and lived in South Mills. Died
10 December 1884
Malachi and Elvia had at least 7 children.
Elvia died about 1871.
On January 3, 1874, Malachi married for the second time to Fanny Sawyer Jones.
His marriage license names Thomas and Nancy Sawyer as his parents. This
information however was given by Isaac Meggs, not Malachi. Isaac was the brother
of Malachi's daughter in law Lovie Meggs Sawyer.
I have searched wills, census reports and "Wanted Posters" without success. I
have not been able to find a Thomas and Nancy that fits the right time frame or
make any connection to Malachi! I have found Malachi selling and buying land
with a Zail (Zale) Sawyer. Zail is listed in the census of 1790, 1820, 1830 and
1840. Died mid 1840's. He lived near Malachi and maybe an older brother or

Barbara Inman Beall Nov 22, 1996
I am a direct descendant of the Spence
family of Perquimans,
Pasquotank and Camden Counties. My line of descent is directly from Alexander
Spence, who died in Pasquotank in 1735, his son Joseph, (who died in Pasquotank
in 1783), Joseph's son, William Spence
, who died in Pasquotank
in 1785. William married Jude Perry
. I descend from his second
son, Elisha Spence
(ca. 1776-ca.1840). I'm trying to find
documentation for William and Jude's marriage. I also believe that Elisha was
married three times. His first wife may have been a Jordon
second wife (from whom I descend), was Susanna Perry
records indicate this. Their first child was my ggg grandfather, Samuel Perry Spence
(1800-1867). Samuel was born in South Carolina (I believe York County, but am
not sure). I think that William fought in the American revolution and is the
same William Spence who received 640 acres in Davidson County, TN for 84 months
of service in the war. When William died in 1785, his eldest son, inherited his
plantation. Elisha relocated to Davidson County, where he married Jane Bell
Any information would be greatly appreciated.

My Great Grandfather was living in Hot Sptings N.C. around the late 1890's or
1900's. His name is James David Guy
Sr. I understood that he
had a farm or worked a farm and that he was a preacher in the Baptist church. He
was from western N.C. Later he moved to Del Rio TN.

Seeking earliest records of Seymour's. I have a Joseph Harrison Seymour
but nothing before that. I have heard that three brothers arrived in that area
once. Who were they. I'm from Lenoir County and go back to John Seymour 1860.
I'm not even sure if there is a connection between the Lenoir Co./Camden. Also,
could be Pasquotank or any of those.
