HOWARD, BENNETT
Am looking for my ancestors Hiram HOWARD b,d,unknown, and Cinthia BENNETT, b,d unknown. They were married 10/20/1818 in Wilson Co. TN, but believed to had come from Montgomery County to TN.

Was Cinthia BENNETT in Montgomery Co. NC in early 1800's? Who were her parents? When was she born?

Were ther families of HOWARDs in Montgomery Co. NC in late 1700's early 1800s? (The 1800 census for Mont. Co shows the presence of John HOWARD)..

LATHRAN, LATHERSON, LATHERTON,LATHERSON, LATHERN, LATHERAN
Noted name of William Lathran on 1790 County Census, and wonder that this may be an distant ancestor of mine, if so he may be a direct relative of my great, great, great, greatgrandfather!! Richard Latheron. I believe that they were Scottish and therefore the pronunciation of the surname would sound like latheran or lathran. (It's my theory and I'll stick to it).

If anyone comes across the names Latheron, Latherton, Latherson, Lathern, Latheran or Lathran (or similar) I would be grateful for the information. Nick Latheron

LEDBETTER
My Joel Ledbetter first appeared in Montgomery County census of 1800. He lived in the part that became Stanly County when it was formed. They lived, and some still do, in Stanly County on the Rocky River across from Union and Anson County. He was born about 1777 and died in 1843 in Stanly Co. NC. His wife was Lydia Keaton. I don't know who he was descended from but suspect Rev. Henry Ledbetter of Caswell County, NC and the Charles Ledbetter family that settled in the Montgomery County area.

I have a reasonable amount of info on his descendants and I am one of them. My mother is a Ledbetter from Stanly Co. My Ledbetter family is connected with the Austin, Smith, Thomas, Stewart, Hinson, Harward, and Huneycutt families of the Union, Stanly, Anson, and Montgomery area.

I am not aware of Ledbetters in Chowan County. I would like info about them. We have not been able to track Joel's wife, Lydia Keaton. Most Keatons were in Perquimans and Pasquotank Counties. I have info on many of them in Virginia and several NC counties.

ROBINSON
Lin Robinson Thu Sep 25 1997
I am seeking information on my (ggg)grandfather. His name was John ROBINSON and the 1850 census indicates he was born in Virginia in 1782. He owned property in the Dyson's Creek area near Mt. Gilead. I do not know the name of his first wife but he married a lady named Jane(Jincy) MCAULAY some time around 1842. There is a copy of a marriage contract on file in the Dept. of Archives. Later the property they owned together was disposed of at a sheriff's sale. The only descendent I can be certain of is his son, Linington ROBINSON although census record indicate that he may have had another son and a daughter. His date of death is unknown. Linington married Ann MCKINNON and their descendents are well known. The name Linington has popped up in the family for a number of years since the first (known) Linington ROBINSON, John's aforementioned son. I am trying to make a connection with a family bearing that surname which originated in New York in the late 17th century. It is very likely that the LININGTON given name comes from that family's surname. Any information anyone has would be helpful as I am at a dead end with John.

Does anyone have any information on Elizabeth Hancock,listed in the 1850 Montgomery County Census? Her age was 48 in 1850. I believe she had at least 2 children, John(Jack) and Julia. I will greatly appreciate any information you can provide.

Looking for information on the Sterling (Starling) Moore family. Was his father William Moore? Sterling born around 1770 in Anson County. He died in Wilkes County (Lovelace Township) around 1836-37. His children were William born around 1793; Nancy born around 1795; James born around 1797; Elizabeth born around 1799; Robert (Robin) born around 1802; Jesse born in 1804; Sarah born about 1806; Daniel born about 1808; and John born around 1813. Sterling left Anson County around 1799 and moved to Rowan (now Davie) and then on to Wilkes around 1816. Any info on Sterling and his pre-Wilkes family will be appreciated.
