I’m looking for any information on my 2X great-grandfather, J.R. (Robert) Lassiter. He was born about 1834 in Wake County, NC, married Rebecca Ann Brown (d/o Spencer Brown) on 28 Sept 1865, and died between 1873 and 1880.
1. Joseph Robert Lassiter, b. 1867, d. 1942 in Franklin County, NC, married Louisa Ayscue 1890 in Franklin Co.(children Joseph Lee, Parker, Robert, Carrie Louise, Hurley, Staley, William, Ruth)
2. Mary Lassiter, b. 1869, d. before 1880?
3. Fannie Alphrada Lassiter, b. 1870, d. 1922, married Hulitt White Harris (children Adeline and Lois Harris)
4. Spencer Harold, b. 1873, d. 1934, married Susan Patricia Lassiter
I suspect that J.R. Lassiter’s parents were Reddick/Riddick Lassiter and Frances Crowder? Rhodes?, but I can’t prove it. Reddick and Frances' other children were J.W. b.c. 1832, Susan F. b. 1840, Mary Elizabeth b. 1841 (m. John Calvin Broughton), and William H. b. 1849.
This has been my genealogical brickwall for almost 30 years, so I’d greatly appreciate any leads on these Wake County Lassiters!
