as indicated, below, i posted this on another forum but as an aside, re the mecklenburg co, va, etc connections, i am trying to confirm, which i believe that the info shows, that my william harris/ frances goode was the son, william harris, of william harris/ judith hudson also of lunenburg/ mecklenburg co, va and who died 1778 mecklenburg co, va.
my judith hudson harris was the daughter of my peter hudson, sr, son of robert hudson and mary farguson/ ferguson of henrico co, va.
there is a halifax co, va deed dated 1765 wherein my william harris/ frances goode of lunenburg co, va sold land in halfax co, va to john camp, which was witnessed by this thomas farguson who was also involved with this robert farguson and the tunstall family in halifax co, va.
i have been trying to learn if this farguson/ ferguson family there in halifax co, va were the same or related to my mary farguson hudson and the farguson/ ferguson family also of henrico co, va??
since this is an older post by you, i think i will also post where you have this, a more recent post in hopes of your seeing this.
john mc lauglin, son of james mc laughlin, married ca 1798 laurens co, sc sarah goode harris, sister of my charles harris and children of my william harris, jr/ frances rodgers, who died 1799 laurens co, sc and my william harris, jr was the son of my william harris, sr/ frances goode of lunenburg co, va.
sorry to say, i have not been able to learn more about the mc laughlins. i know that john and sarah goode harris mc laughlin also moved to franklin co, tn by 1820 and by 1830, they had moved to perry co, al where they both died there later.
i would appreciate corresponding with you re these families. we may have other interests as well.
