I keep coming back to you as a "bad penny" since you gave me the information about Elias Boyd marriage in Georgia to Nancy Yancey. By your research I am a descendant of her father Lewis Yancey.I am also a descendant of Philemon Kavenaugh, Sr.I am a member of the Fielding Lewis Chapter of DAR in Marietta, Georgia and know a member of the Chapter whose has proved her lineage to Lewis Yancey.
My ancestor is Memorial Kavenaugh wife of Thomas Pollard, Sr. of Craven County, North Carolina.Records in the North Carolina Archives state Thomas Pollard received the first Land Grant in Craven County, North Carolina.I found more information in a series of new books on Pitts County, North Carolina at the Library in Marietta.
I have copies from the North Carolina Archives of Thomas Pollard's records, found by a cousin in DAR who lives in North Carolina and researched this for me.I will send you a copy.It appears to me Memorial is one of the seven un-named children of Philemon Kavanaugh, Jr.??.
The children listed on this paper proves her lineage to Charles Kavenaugh, Sr. approved Feb 22 2007 are as follows:
This DAR paper (record copy DAR #845165 A930) proves Charles Kavanaugh, Sr. and Ann Coleman were parents of Jael Kavanaugh who married Peter Woods.
I had first thought Memorial was a daughter of Charles, Sr. which apparently she is not.I am preparing my paper to prove my lineage to Thomas Pollard, Sr. whose Descendants Frederick, Irwin, John and Thomas came to Greene County, Georgia with their mother after the death of their father, and then on to Fayette County, Georgia where my ancestor John Jefferson Pollard married Lydia Harris.John's father was Thomas Pollard also. John moved to Randolph County, Alabama.His daughter Frances Pollard married James J. Prince and they are my gg grandparents buried at the Old Rocky Branch Baptist Cemetery, Randolph County, Alabama.
I do appreciate your work and if you can give me any assistance on this one also, I would really appreciate it.I will be happy to send you a copy of this DAR paper of Charles Kavanaugh, Sr. if you give me an address.Sincerely, Marlene MarleneWall@mindspring.com
