I have just noticed your post about living near Suffolk, VA> I came through there once looking for data on Christopher Gewin and found where he had attended two Quaker weddings there.I have since found out on the internet that he was an early Virginia Quaker (which I had suspected for some time.)
I know that Christopher was given a Land Grant in 1704 and then I lost him.I know he had several sons, one of whom is my forefather, Thomas.I have found nothing on Thomas. I know my branch ended up in Anson County, NC with land on the S.C. side too (Chesterfield).Thomas' son Asabel or Asahel lived there and had several children.I trace my lineage through his son, Asa, Jr. who migrated to Tuscaloosa, AL in 1827.
How do you connect to the first Christopher of the late 1600s who settled in Nansemond County?I think they lived near Dragon Swamp?I'm relying on memory, is there or was there such a place?
You may rearch me at this sight or respond to my e-mail, Mimilo@att.net.
