From the genealogy webpage of Marty Grant: Susanna Stroud's parents were Peter Stroud and Naomi (maiden name unknown). This page contains the names of her children as well:

  • James Mashburn (m. Rebecca Stroud)
  • Elizabeth Mashburn (m. John Davis, m. Abel Harris)
  • Thomas Mashburn (m. Letta Powell)
  • Rabun Mashburn (m. Mary E.)
  • Lois Mashburn (m. John P Hall)

DNA Research Notes

There is confusion as to the mother. Was it Naomi Unknown or Rebecca Raburn? The mtDNA descendants have a very rare type of mtDNA which may someday prove this.

More from Marys notes:

Late breaking news!! As of May 2017, and 15 years after testing the descendants of Margaret Mashburn Pendergraft and Lois Mashburn Hall, they had one other recent and perfect Full Mitochondrial DNA match. Since this report was going to be published, academic ethics required that this woman be contacted in order to learn the identity of her earliest known maternal ancestor. The woman immediately wrote back stating that her earliest known mtDNA ancestor was Rebecca Mashbourn, born 19 January 1804 in Burke County, NC, who became the second wife of James Gibbs on 14 April 1823 in Burke County, NC.
After intensive research all evidence indicates that Rebecca Mashburn Gibbs was another daughter of Matthew Mashburn and Susannah Stroud, and for comparison purposes she has been included as such in the above commentary. Rebecca Mashbourn Gibbs died at age 89 in Blount County, AL.
