Hi Leawanna, Thanks for responding--------I am not sure if there is a connection, but have come across the GERMAN? surname as well as JARMAN-----------it would appear that EVERYONE in NC is connected to my line, UNTIL I look for links???? There is one record in Onslow tho, that I am curious abt, and shall send it on to you from ANCESTRY. Must go back and pick out some stuff that I do question on the JARMAN surname. Warm regards, carol.
