My gggrandfather, Alexander Megginson was b abt 1824 in NC. He married Martha ?(b in TN)and their first child, James Henry(or Henry James) was b 1848 in MS. On the 1900 Benton Co., MS census, Alexander lists his mother and father as born in NC. Alexander's other children are Ann Eliza, Charles B., and Sally(?Sarah C.).I believe he later mar. Sally Clifton abt 1876 in MS. I'll list James Henry's children's names in case anyone might recognize a family name assoc. with your NC Megginsons: Martha Hugh Alexander William Fuller James Manning Leland P. Frank B. Russell Vera Viola Oma Lillie Carrie(or Carrice) M.
I've really met a brick wall with the Megginson's.Most of James Henry's children did not have many children and are spread out all over the U.S.My grandfather, James Manning Megginson was estranged from the family in the early 1900's and moved to California, so I haven't been able to find any contemporaries who might have info on Alexander.
