Searching for any information on the BOYETT surname. Three brothers, all born in Wayne County, NC between 1783 and 1795, Joseph Josiah, Thomas James, and William BOYETT. Any information would be appreciated.
I am trying to find and confirm information on Harriett Ann HOWELL (3/18/1847-10/25/1888), who married my gg grandfather, Henry Franklin PATE soon after the War Between the States ended. I understand from one record that Harriett Ann HOWELL may have married a FOREHAND and had no children before the FOREHAND entered the war and was killed. From reviewing census and war records, it appears that--if the record is true--that the first husband might have been Needham D. FOREHAND, son of Levi FOREHAND. (On the other hand, it could have been Levi FOREHAND, Jr., even though Levi was the younger brother and only 18 upon enlistment. All three, the father and both sons, served in the same company and, unfortunately, neither of the sons returned. The father, however, was discharged after a couple years of service at the approximate age of 45.) If anyone has information on * Harriett Ann HOWELL * Levi FOREHAND, Sr. * Needham FOREHAND * Levi FOREHAND, Jr. I'd appreciate any correspondence. Thanks, Chip Pate email@example.com
