My 3X g-gfather was Samuel Pope Jr., b. abt. 1752 in Craven Co., NC, d. Barnwell Dist., SC 1818 m. Margaret [last name unknown].
One of Samuel's sons, my 2X g-gfather William Stuart Pope 1789-1837, was one of the first whites to settle in Sneads/Jackson Co., FL area c. 1823.Before that he lived in Savannah, where he was in business with his sister, Elizabeth Pope Tanner and his brother-in-law John Tanner.Elizabeth and John are said to have settled in Gadsden Co.Likewise, another sister, Catherine, reportedly was the second wife of the Rev. David L. White of Gadsden Co., FL.If there are any TANNER or WHITE descendants out there, who can confirm (or who have dates or other info concerning POPES esp. ELIZABETH POPE TANNER and/or CATHERINE POPE WHITE, pls e-mail me directly.Best wishes.
