While searching Duplin County deeds for 1858-61 came across a few entries for properties purchased by Jacob Heath. All descriptions mention that the lands were part of Sloan plantation and the people selling were "descended from Dennis Ezzell". Names mentioned were: Salathel, Joshua, and John R. Ezzell Hansell and Lucy Ezzell F. K. and Elizabeth A. Williams Owen, Daniel, Noah, John R., and Isaac W. West Daniel and Elizabeth Culberth David E. and Mary Rivenbank James and Louisa Strickland
Lands border East side of Maxwell Swamp and adjoin George W. Lamb and J. W. Gillespie. Does anyone know of theses properties (over 400 acres) or families?
