It sure smells like "what I have" for the family of William Martin BUSH
RS-NC and Penelope LANE of Jones County, NC . Notice the Penelope LANE in
this family and remember that a Penelope LANE (1773-1846) is a name long
rumored to my the name of the wife of my Robert C. DANIEL (ABT 1765-AFT
1830) of Burke County, NC.
However, it is not that bit of information that caught my attention. It was
the RAIFORD information (below), as relates to these RAIFORD boys seeking
their share of the Estate of John RAIFORD. That really caught my attention.
LT. John RAIFORD RS-NC (ABT 1758-1812) of New Bern, Craven County, NC
married Lucy Rebecca SPELL, d/o Joseph. John died in Jefferson County, GA.
His kids are all over the MARSHALLS, who in turn seem to be close to my
DANIEL bunch since they are on wills, together. Notice also, the BUSHES and
BRYANS are all over each other and guess where they also came from -- New
Bern, Craven County, NC.
Another interesting name in this list is CROOM. I have an Eli McCROAN
listed on several very important DANIEL deeds in Jefferson County, GA and I
do not know who he was. Regardless, MAJ John CROOM (1722-1791) of Lenoir
County, NC married Susannah HARDEE, d/o Col. John H. HARDEE and Susannah
TYSON of Greenville, Pitt County, NC. Susannah was the d/o Samuel TYSON of
Beth County, NC. Do you want me to tell you how far Greenville is from
Pactolus, Pitt County, NC? About a sand wedge -- on a good day.
What I am seeing in a lot of this is -- they are marrying class and not as
much family but all of these families were close, I'm sure. Notice the
name, Phillip RAIFORD, in the chillen of LT. John RAIFORD and the Lucy
Rebecca SPELL. I think it is all the same bunch as your RAIFORDS over in
Edgefield, SC..... --- JC
