Mary A. Lipscomb married  Amariah Wilson, Jr. in Hays Co, TX, on 25 Jun 1856.  I am trying trace her parents.  I believe she is the dau. of Henry Lipscomb(b.1794 Person Co, NC, d. bef 1837), and Sarah Sally Lea (b. 1790 NC d. 1899 in Lampasas, TX)

A 1850 census of Bossier Par, LA shows an Ansom(Anderson?) Lipscomb 22, M, planter, b. NC with Mary, 18, b. NC; Sarah Lipscomb 60, b. NC; Sarah 16, b. NC; anc Catherine 15, b. NC.

That looks like a pretty good fit for my Mary, but cannot prove father, (not there), and verify sibling.

post on ancestry...

Richard: Forgot to tell you that Mary A. Lipscomb is my great grandmother & Henry Lipscomb & Sarah Lea were her parents. She was born in N.C. but migrated to Texas, where she married Amariah Wilson in San Marcos. I have some history on the Lipscombs, but can only go back as far as Sarah on the Lea side. Thanks again, Gail


Run across the following info from Ben Rose's book:

"Descendants of Zachariah Lea. Sources: Will of Zachariah Lea, Caswell Co. 1792; Person County Heritage Book; Person County Marriage Records by Kendell; Report of Research on the Lea Family before 1800 by Rose; Person Co NC Deed Books 1792-1825 by Kendell; Genealogical column in The Monroe (NC) Inguirer of Sep 28, 1961; material supplied by Bessie Bradsher and Garland Lea."

and then...
"Children of Zachariah Lea and Ann Townes (?)
Vincent Lea m1 Nancy Brdsher, m2 Nancy Lea
Henry Lea
George Lea m. Mary Winstead
Mary Lea m. Bankston
Rachel Lea m. Henry Sergent Moved to Russell Co VA.
Sarah (Sally) Lea m Henry Lipscomb"

there is also a diary post for "Alanson M. Lea"

He mentions Lipscomb in his diary
