Subject: John Devenport/Davenport
Searching for JOHN DAVENPORT-DEVENPORT b. ca. 1784 in VA or NC to Wm and Mary Nunnally Davenport of Amelia Co., VA. Lived in Lincoln County, NC (now Gaston Co.) and is listed in the 1810 and 1820 NC Census records. Six children born between 1800-20. Married ____ Abernathy, dau. of BATTEE ABERNATHY, of Lincoln Co. No record of JOHN D. other than that he moved to Missouri in 1820. BATTEE ABERNATHY and his brother with their families, moved to Perry Co., MO in 1820. I would assume that JOHN D. moved at this time, also. Family members are buried in the York Chapel Cemetery, Perryville, MO.

One of my elusive ancestors may have been living in Missouri in 1840. His name was William C. Duncan and he was married to a woman named Abby. Their daughter, Sarah Jane, was married to my Henry A. Block of Cape Girardeau.
My first record of William C. Duncan is in the 1850 census in New Orleans with his wife and two year old daughter. They are living in a home with Cape Girardeau Blocks and Judens who had also moved to New Orleans.
Do you have any marriage records for a William C. Duncan around 1840 or census records? I don't even know what Missouri county this William lived in. Don't be confused by a later marriage entry: William C. Duncan, Jr. married one of Zalma Block's daughters in Cape Girardeau.
Thanks, Carolyn Castor

Subject: Ware/Haynes Cemetery
My people, Maize and Glasgow, were in Cape Co. at the time of both the 1850 and 1870 census. George Maize was killed in Perry Co. in 1829 by a claim jumper (per newspaper article) . He was supposedly brought back to Cape Co. and buried in the Ware Cemetery. He was my gr-gr-grandfather. His daughter, Mary Ann Maize Glasgow, wife of John Watts Glasgow, died in 1870 and was also buried in Ware Cemetery.
Does this cemetery still exist? If not, were the occupants moved? Are their any stones with readable names? Any info is appreciated.
