(Another source says born 1806, Chatham County, NC. ) M. about 1826 NC—if this date is right, he must have married a first wife before marrying Nancy Alice Ripley, for she would have been a real child bride of only 5! This first theorized wife must have died. D. 1900 Lockhart, Union Parish, LA, anecdotally of scarlet fever.
