I have a theory that I can not document (yet) Jesse Asbell's (m. to Esther Mariah Winslow) parents were James Asbill and Sally Byrum. They are listed on the N. Carolina Marriage Bonds. I can not find a documented connection, but I can not rule them out either. That is my missing link.
Also, I have a theory that this James (m. to Sally Byrum) is the James born to Joseph Asbill (m. to Dorothy Ross). Joseph's son James seems to fit from what I have on him at the moment but I am not able to document it one way or the other.
Anyone else researching this line have information they can share to prove or disprove these two theories? If this is right, then I have my husband's lineage traced back to George Azbill who immigrated from England to Norfolk, VA.
