I am a Vestal doing geneology. I am trying to find the parents of my GGG grandfather Reuben Vestal, born July 4, 1810 in Ross Co. Ohio. His parents would have not been in Ohio long and most likely migrated from NC or perhaps VA as many relatives traveled back to these areas. He married Elanor Mary Chapman on July 4, 1833. They lived the early part of their lives in Madison Co OH and had a total of 8 children. They later moved to Greencamp Twp. in Marion Co Ohio. He died on Feb. 17, 1874. His eldest son Marshall E. Vestal (born Mar 31, 1834) was my GG Grandfather. He had a son Thomas Rueben Vestal, born Aug 12, 1858 who was my G grandfather. Other sons and daughters of Reuben were: John Marshall (10- 4-1835), James (10-21-1837), David(4-15-1842), Sarah Ann (4-10-1872), Mary Ann Polly (9-27-1849) and twins Martin and Win (5-23-1845 died later that year). Do you have any knowledge of a Reuben Vestal, who his parents might be and any siblings? Other counties in NC might obviously be Orange and a few others close by. My sister and I have not contacted any NC researchers before, but suspect a link with so many Vestals coming from NC. Any help would be much appreciated

Hardin H. Davis. b. 11 Jul 1821 in Danbury, Stokes/Surry Co., NC, was the third and youngest child of "Billy" Davis (d. 1822 in Danbury) and Phebe Isbell (b. 1791, d. 26 Dec 1881 in Miller, MO). Hardin's brother, William Riley, and sister, Sally Elinor, moved with Phebe to Miller, MO after "Billy" died. I am trying to establish the parents of Hardin-- I know from will information that he had a brother, Evan--and from previous research he had a brother named Thomas, who moved to Overton Co., TN--cousins' moved to Miller, MO later on. I think the real clue will be in the land records-- as family tradition states that Billy's father gave him land, and slaves, including Mogna when he married. Also, the children supposedly sold land in Indiana they inherited from their Grandfather around 1850. Phebe Isbell was the daughter of Jason Livingston Isbell and Phebe Eastham. The Hickmans were also cousins of Phebe's--and many Hickman's and Isbell's intermarried. Phebe's son William Riley married Christine Hickman, and Sally Elinor married Temple Elliot Hickman. The Isbell's owned land near the Davis'--who tradition says were wealthy land owners in Surry/Stokes Co.

Researching the Carter familys of State Road, Wilkes County, North Carolina. James Austin Aaron Carter was born 26 June 1900 in State Road, Wilkes County, North Carolina to Bessie Levaria (Tucker) and James Henry Carter. James married Maude Novella Key in Surry County on 15 July 1917. James died 23 May 1965 in Miller, Hand County, South Dakota. The siblings of James were: Thomas Grady Carter Raymond Walter C... Ruby Ethel C... Lola Myrtle C... Robert Gaither C... Garlan Henry C... Homer ODell C... Generation 2 James Henry Carter born 28 May 1878 married Bessie Levaria Tucker. James Henry was born to his unwed mother, Emma Carter, who allowed Susan and D.A.Edwards of Wilkes County to raise James Henry. Generation 3 Emma Carter is believed to be the unwed mother of James Henry. Her name was found on the death certificate of James Henry by informant wife, Bessie. Consequently I have no further information on the Carter generations. No father was reported as far as I can tell. That is why James Henry has the same last name as his mother. In the 1880 Wilkes County federal census it is found a William Carter Sr. with a daughter "Emmer" living with him and two single grandsons: John H., aged 5, and James H., aged 2. This could be James Henry Carter as this grandson was also born in 1878.

I am researching the family of Marble (also spelled Marvel) Stone and Lucy Bostick Stone. They initially lived in Albemarle County, VA, then in Prince Edward County, VA, and migrated to Georgia and South Carolina after living in Surry County between 1772 and 1782. Marble Stone left a will in Georgia naming sons Solomon and Littleberry (from whom I am descended), and daughters Annie Stone McAnalley, Betty Stone Wheeler, and Nancy Stone. I am willing to share information with anyone who can provide additional information on this family's origin. I have seen records in the book by Absher confirming their residence in Surry and the approximate times of residence. David Stone e-mail: or
