Let's not discuss how unorgainized we can be, I just might overwhelm you with a description of my office.I have file cabinets with stacks and stacks of information I haven't taken the time to sort or link to the information in my overall database.Some I know some won't link until I've found interium information.So I keep it until it I have time to worry with it or I think it will finally fit in and make sense.Plus I research about a dozen families (all my grandparents and my husband's grandparents).
At any rate, the initial T comes from the Joseph Braddy Bible, which has been preserved by a family member.That's also where I managed to get the actual birth date.Although this family member will no longer allow people to view the Bible (I'm nowhere near her anyway), she does send photocopies of a set of photocopies she made when she realized the Bible was starting to wear out.She was kind enough to mail me a set.The handwriting is hard to read in places, but decipherable nonetheless.
Mary Braddy who married James Cary Alsobrook was Joseph's daughter.Oddly enough Joseph's own death date is not listed, nor is his wife's.To me that indicates that all entries were made by whoever died first.I have no idea which that would be, Joseph or his wife.
Mostly what the records gave were birth dates and places and marriage info in some cases.But there was little death information.
Other info I have about Micajah includes:
-From : MUSTER ROLLS--SOLDIERS OF THE WAR OF -1812 DETACHED FROM THE MILITIA OF NORTH -CAROLINA, 1812 AND 1814Micajah Alsobrook: -First Regiment, Halifax County, Second -Regiment.
From the Bible is their marraige date and place:December 29, 1816 in Halifax County, North Carolina.
There is a biography of James Cary (Micajah's son not father) on the Tennessee GenWeb site.It has lots of good info in it.There's onealso for Simmons D, his other son.It tells the tale of a beloved Sheriff shot in the line of duty.Have you found those yet?
