Did Uriah, son of James Eure, Jr., also have a son Uriah Eure, Jr., who married Mary (Harrell) Landing in February 1803.Orphan Court records for her daughter Elizabeth by Mills Landing support the fact that this Mary Harrell married (2) Uriah Eure, Jr.
Here is the text of my post earlier on this forum.I'd like to figure out if I have some half cousins out there and who they might be (and whether any of them has figured out who Mary Harrell's Harrell family is).
Thanks in advance,
Best Regards, Janet Baugh Hunter
In my never ending search for the parents of a Mary HARRELL (every Harrell family had one) b. ca 1780 probably Gates Co NC, I finally followed up on some information regarding her life after the death of husband Mills LANDING/LANDEN two years after their marriage in 1800. Gates Co court records make it clear that (1) Mills died bef spring of 1802 and that (2) in February 1803 his relict Mary Landing married Uriah EURE Jr.
My descent is through Mills and Mary's daughter Elizabeth Landing/Landen, who appears in Orphan Court records each month, which is how the name change can be tracked from Mary Landing, relict of Mills, to Mary Eure, coinciding with the marriage record (which I think is one year off in the printed Gates Co marriage records). Ca 1822 Elizabeth LANDING married Michael MARSH of Hertford Co NC. He was the son of George Mash/Marsh and Mary unk of Hertford Co. Michael and Elizabeth (Landing) Marsh moved to Bedford Co TN ca 1827.
Anyway, since I am still looking for Mary Harrell Landing Eure's Harrell parents, I thought I'd throw this tidbit out and see if I might have any half EURE cousins descended from the EUREs out there, or whether any Harrells show Mary Eure as legatee after 1803. (I also note that a Uriah Eure marries a Nancy Smith 1808 as well..Maybe my Mary is deceased??)
I know there are several other Eure/Harrell marriages from 1700s to 1800s. FYI, I have gone through many Gates Co deeds and found the gentleman whom I believe to be Mills Landing's father, James LANDING, living close to Whitmell Eure in one of them.
I also thought there might be some descendants of Mary (Harrell) Landing and Uriah Eure who didn't realize that MARY wasn't a Landing, but part of the huge Harrell clan. (Or preferably, someone out there DOES know she's a Harrell and HAS figured out who her parents were!! )
