I was born in Wayne County in 1937 to George & Piety Exum. My grandfather was James R Exum. His father was William D Exum. That is as far as we can go back. I know William D Exum married a girl named Ann. There was a William D Exum living in the home of William and Polly Spivey, according to the 1850 Johnston County census. Later they were living in Wayne County. Also looking for decendents of William and Ann. There were several children from this marriage. Daughter Ava married James R Rose on 5-8-1887. Daughter Mollie m. Charley Hawley 3-15-1896. Son Edwin m. Catherin Edna Pender 3-7-1886. Son James m. Patsy Jane Pender 5-20-1883. I dont know where these children settled down, but I assume it was in the Wayne-Wilson-Johnston-County areas. The 2 Pender girls were daus of William and Ann Radford Pender. I am also looking for family info on Henry M. Hooks of Wayne County. Henry's father was Jacob Hooks, who was the son of Hardy Hooks who married Drucilla Barden.
