Hi Lee and List. You are right on!!!!!! Here's what I have. George Ivy
and Elizabeth Langley were the parents of Adam A. Ivey. Adam A. was born
1686 and died about 1762 in Edgecomb C.. Adam A. was married to Mary abt.
1709. Their children were as follows and I have included some birth years
and 2 additional children. Benjamin Ivey, b. 1730; Francis Ivey; Adam
Ivey, Jr. 1761; Lewis Ivey, 1725; Elizabeth Ivey; Sarah Ivey, Mary Ivey,
1737; Martha Ivey, 1735, and George Ivey, 1727.
Benj. was born 1730, Edgecombe Co., N.C. and married Edith, Edey. No
children. He married 2nd, Sallie Kincheon and had the following children.
My dates on a couple of them differ from yours and I have added a couple of
nick names. Kinchen, 1784; Rebecca Ivey Kearns, 1786; Elizabeth Ivey
Nance, 1787; Priscilla Ivey Nance (Prisey), 1788; Sarah (Sallie is what I
have), Ivey Shankle, 1790; Susannah (Susan) Ivey Swaringen, 1796; Isaac
Ivey, (I have 1794); and Benjamin Ivey, 1800.
I don't think Benjamin ever resided in Randolph Co either. He was in
Edgecombe. There was however, another Benjamin born in 1729*** that was
from Randolph Co.. I think what has happened is that they were born 1 year
apart and people have just assumed they were one and the same. He is
erroneously listed in almost all accounts as the son of Adam A. Ivey. I
believe you are right. Learry L. Warren, Dunn, N.C..
