Dennis McCORMACK --help me
Dennis McCormack m Mary (Polly) Meador (dau of Jeremiah Meador) 1791 Bedford Co VA. Census,Deeds & Per Prop records show them in Bedford Co on Falling Creek (1790-1816); Franklin Co on Linville Creek (1818-1826); & Giles Co (1825-1833). There seems to be a close association between Dennis & Micajah McCormack Sr. Is Dennis the son of Micajah? Micajah would appear to be the Micajah who was the orphaned son of William McCormack of Fredericksville Parish (Will 1753). In Franklin Co Dennis purchased land from William & Judith Wright McCormack. This William appears to also be the son of William McCormack of Fredericksville Parish. Children of Dennis & Mary: Sally, Delilah, Micajah, Jeremiah, Lorenzo (m Emly Brumfield 1826), William (m Lucinda Brunfield 1830) & John D. I have been stuck on Dennis for several years. Can anyone help me associate Dennis with a family group? More details on my web page at:
