John Treadwell left CT in the early 1700s to come to what was then in Chowan, Sampson, Johnston, Anson counties of NC.
I know that my 2nd GF was called Smith Treadwell and was born in 1820. His mother was Rachel Treadwell-Treadwell. My question is was Smith's given name John, Jr. ( Understood from an elderly cousin into gen records) that Smith was called Little John and referred to as John, Jr. Smith Treadwell, Sr and his wife Rachel Treadwell came to what's Murray and Whitfield County area in 1820 from NC. After Smith died, Rachel Treadwell-Treadwell married William White.
Part of the problem, I believe is that the Anson/Sampson County court house burned many years ago and with the fire went all the historical records.
Research all so indicates that John Treadwell (a major in the RW and Stephen Treadwell (Lt in RW) both serving in NC Militia were brothers which would indicate that Smith (Sr) and Rachel Treadwell were cousins 1st cousins not aunt and nephew (as some researchers suggest).
Both Charles Wall of Orlando, FL (deceased) and Tim Treadwell (now in FL) did extensive research on the Treadwells. When Charlie Wall died he had many boxes of Treadwell research in his garage. I e-mailed Tim Treadwell (an artist) and told him about the hard copy records as someone in the Treadwell lines should have these or they should be donated to the LDS research.
