Subject: Daughter of Property owners on Crane & Grants Creek

If you have never found the NAME of your Rowan County Ancestor's WIFE
...you will understand my problem. Since the 1800 Census was
alphabetized, we lost that particular avenue to see IF our Ancestor's
NEIGHBORS were kinfolk. I have not found the NAME of my
gr-gr-gr-grandmother. In 1800 Census
they were newlyweds but they moved to Buncombe County after 1805, where
she died in 1824, leaving him
with 12 children.
However, there is ONE AVENUE that holds CLUES....and that clue is their
PROPERTY. My ancestor, Wyatt Hoult/Holt...lived with Paul Roadsmith.
Paul was a Blacksmith in Salisbury. I don't know where his
house was located, but he owned property on CRANE CREEK..and...on GRANTS
CREEK. And it's very likely Wyatt married the daughter of a neighbor
living on Crane Creek or on Grants Creek.
IF...anyone has a DAUGHTER MISSING from the family of your Ancestor who
LIVED on CRANE CREEK ...OR...on GRANT CREEK...and IF she was BORN circa
1772-1782, "possibly" SHE is the daughter who married Wyatt Hoult/Holt
? You may even know her given name and that she married a "Wyatt".
(thinking Wyatt was the 'last name' rather than his first name.)
OR...at the least you may have
wondered what happened to your Ancestor's Daughter born around that time
who was in the 1790 Census column but was not listed again in the
1800 Rowan County, N.C. Census with her parents?
Does anyone have a "missing daughter" from a family that would FIT this
time period and these Clues? If so, I would love to hear from you.
Hopefully we can settle a MISSING LINK for both of us. Thanks so
much for checking your records and for reading this rather lengthy
