BRITTEN, FERGUSON, FURGESON, SINK -
Seeking the parents and any family information on Daniel SINK who was born in Franklin Co., and married on March 18, 1841 Emily FURGESON (I think it may be mispelled and should be FERGUSON) who was also born in Franklin County. Emily's mother's name was Frances according to the marriage bond. Daniel and Emily were the parents of at least four children--Sarah, Josephine, Samuel, and Minerva Emily (who was my great grandmother) and was born on Oct. 12, 1850 in Franklin County. Minerva married George William BRITTEN. She died at Falls Mills, Tazwell County, VA Dec. 28, 1923. The SINK Family may have lived in the Blackwater ?? Section of Franklin County. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

MORRIS, PRYOR, RAY, RHEA, THOMPSON, WRAY -
I am looking for any information concerning Ezekiel RHEA/WRAY or RAY who was in Botetourt Co., VA., in 1788. He received a land grant of 136 acres on the Rush Fork the waters of the west fork of Little River. By 1797, he seems to have been in Warren Co., KY. He died about 1811 in White Co., TN. I have been told that his wife was Elizabeth PRYOR, daughter of Richard PRYOR and Mourning THOMPSON, but have no proof of this. I also think that he is son of Moses RHEA/WRAY/RAY who left his will in Franklin Co., VA., dated 9 Apr 1802. Can anyone verify this? Ezekiel's mother must have been Elizabeth MORRIS, daughter of Daniel and Tabitha MORRIS. Tabitha MORRIS leaves her will in Bedford Co., VA., and mentions daughter, Betty RAY. I would also like to know if Ezekiel's grandfather is the Moses RAY/WRAY/RHEA who left his will in Amherst Co., VA., dated 22 May 1766 and mentions a son, Moses RAY.
