WOOD posted by Denise Woodside on Thursday, July 5, 2001

I am looking for anyone that might have information on Furnifold WOOD. He is listed on the Dobbs County Taxables for 1769 as well as the Voter registration list for 1779. I see the same name (same person?) serving in the Revolutionary War for the NC Militia for Duplin-Sampson counties. There is a Furnifold WOOD in the Sampson county census for 1790. I believe this Furnifold to be the father of another Furnifold WOOD who was born in 1797, m. Anna ? 1824. The 1830 census has him and his family in Sampson County, NC. The 1840 census has them in Henry Co., Alabama. The 1850 census has them in Choctaw County, MS (later Webster County). He had the following children in NC and AL: Anna W., James B., William J., Furney Fold, Allen C., Abrigail, and Young Monroe. Please let me know if you have any information. Thanks!!

My Gr-gr-gr-grandfather was Miles Jackson, b. in Va. ca. 1749, md. to Allena (Galena?) Simmons, b. ca. 1746 in N.C. From N.C. they went to Henry Co., Tn., from there to Fulton Co., Ar.

Would like to hear from anyone on either or both of these families. Thanks. Betty G. McCollum

ASKEW, BREWTON, BRUTON, FORNEY, GRANTHAM posted by Carol Brewton Forney on Sunday, March 10, 2002

BRUTON, BREWTON, ASKEW, FORNEY, GRANTHAM: I am looking for information on Isabel Bruton's family (unknown maiden name). She married an Askew after the death on the Bruton husband. She was a widow Bruton around 1780 but was an Askew in the 1790's. She and at least 4 of her children moved after 1790 to SC and later to GA. I have not been able to find any documentation giving the first names of either husband. Her (?) male sons were Nathan, Benjamin, and Joseph. It is possible that she was the second wife of Mr. Bruton. There are several children and there could have been 2 different mothers due to the ages of the children. Any leads would be appreciated. 500 Sunrise Summit Asheville, NC 28804.
