People with origins in Halifax County, North Carolina maintained their ties of family and friendship after moving to Tennessee in the years after the Revolutionary War. This is a place to record those connections, especially ties of affinity (not just blood), which are harder to identify without in-depth study.
See my blogpost examining the records of Samuel Spears, here: http://voicesfromadistantpast.blogspot.com/2014/12/samuel-spears-was-from-halifax-county-nc.html
I was focused on identifying the father of Lazarus Spears, but in doing so, unraveled ties of kinship and friendship among several other groups of people in Tennessee.
- Christopher Haynes came to Hawkins County around 1796-97.
- Lucy Haynes Amis sister of Christopher, came to Hawkins County around the time of her marriage to Thomas Amis in 1788.
- Ann Haynes Gordon sister of Christopher, married John Gordon, and they settled in Smith County, Tennessee.
- Samuel Spears lived in same district as the Haynes family in Halifax County; came to Hawkins County sometime between 1790 and 1808.
- Ogburn Hale lived in Hawkins County and with wife Loviny had previously associated with Haynes and Spears families in Halifax County.
- Jacob Cress, another Halifax-Hawkins associate of the Haynes and Spears families
