CREWS I recently found out that I descend from the African-American
Crews family from North Carolina who resided in Tennessee in the 1850's. I am
currently endeavoring to find present relatives from that line. My gr-gr-
grandparents were Melissa CREWS and Charles FITZPATRICK. If you have information
or think we may be related, please e-mail me. Thank you for taking the time to
read this message.
GREENSBERRY I would like information on the GREENSBERRY family. My
gr-gr-gr grandfather Lewis was born in Kentucky approxiamtely 1810. His father
was born in North Carolina and Mother was born in Virginia. He was married to
Maria, born 1825 in Tennessee. Their children were Spencer born in Kentucky,
Peter born 1850 Kentucky, Ned born 1859 Kentucky, Henry born 1867 Illinois and

HEARN I would like to
know the parents of Alfred Hearn born March 1934 in North Carolina. I would also
like to determine where in North Carolina he was from. He lived in Marshall
County, Mississippi with his wife Julia who was born March 1848 in Mississippi.
He lived in Mississippi by 1865 as evidenced by the birth of their first child.
HODGE - My great-great grandfather Louis HODGE who was born 1816 in
North Carolina. He married Melissa CREWS in Dyers County Tennessee on May 19,
1866. They resided in Obion County, Tennessee in the 1880 census with their
children Aaron (1865), John (1866), Lucinda HODGE O'NEAL (1872; Grand Chain,
Illinois), Lena HODGE MCCLELLAND (b: 1873; Tennessee), Millie (1878) and Aaron.
Lena HODGE was my great-grandmother. She married Witt MCCLELLAND. Known
children were Lillian, Pearlie, Melvin, Elic, John (my grandfather), James,
Marie and Mabel. I believe they raised their children in Pulaski County,
Illinois. Malissa also had another son, George SCOTT. Louis and Melissa both had
families prior to their marriage. I would be interested in information on those
families. It would be especially thrilling to learn of other relatives. Thanking
you in advance. Deborah Davis, Edwardsville, IL
McCLELLAND I am interested in corresponding with anyone who has
information on the McCLELLAND family from North Carolina. My gg-grandfather,
Richard McCLELLAND was found in the 1880 Pulaski County Illinois census born
1839 in Tennessee, but his father was listed as born in North Carolina.. He was
listed as mulatto, so I suspect one parent was caucasian, maybe even Irish from
his surname. I have been unable to find out who Richard's father or mother were.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
would very much like to learn information about D. and Clary (Clacy) Neely.
Their birthdates are unknown, but Clary is from North Carolina. No
documentation has been found to tell us where D. was born, but family lore has
always been that my gr-grandfather Thomas' father was from India. Their
one known child is Thomas (Tom) Neely who was born 1867 in North Carolina.
He lived in Red Banks, Marshall County, Mississippi with his wife through the
1900 - 1910 census. It is not known if he moved to Memphis, Tennessee yet
he died there in January of 1930. His daughter Fannie Little was the
informant so he may have lived with her at the time. He was a widow so I
am also looking for information on the death of his wife Mary Curry Neely.
Getting back to D and Clary (Clacy) Neely, I would like to know if they migrated
to Mississippi and have any and all information I can find out about them.

Comments: My grandfather Samuel MARTIN, african american, was born in Wilkes
County, NC about 1820. I am looking for information or a connection.
I am researching my Reynolds
family line and have traced it back to a John Reynolds and his son Hamilton
migrating from North Carolina to Arkansas sometime before 1835. I have a birth
date for Hamilton of 1812 from a marriage record. I have no birth date for John
or names of parents or wife.
I have discovered that there was a John Reynolds born in North Carolina,
(possibly Personco) in 1785 to Hamilton (or Hambleton) Reynolds and Sarah Lea.
He married Catherine (or Kathy) Magness in 1810 in Rutherford, which would be
about right for him to be the father of Hamilton Reynolds born in 1812. Also the
repeat of the name Hamilton seems to be more than a coincidence. Do you know if
this John Reynolds and Catherine Magness had a son Hamilton and if they
eventually migrated to Arkansas. I will greatly appreciate any help in proving
or disproving this connection.
