You are correct that I do not come from Richard and Frances, but his grandfather Richard (the one who was married to Hannah) had a brother named John (1683 - 1769). He married a lady named Martha MNU and died in what was Dobbs Co., NC at the time. They are my ancestors.
I have a little on Richard and Hannah's children, but not a great deal of details on them or their descendants. I would appreciate seeing what you or anyone else from the Minchey side of the family has. I'm just getting started and I would like to know more about you folks. I am also interested in what you have further back to England. I've seen some of the names you gave from a couple of web sites, but would appreciate another source.
I had suspicioned that we had some of the same ancestral roots, since the last names are somewhat similar. Please feel free to contact me through my home e-mail so you don't have to type out whatever you care to share to the message board - unless you just want to. Likewise, I would be happy to get you what I have on my side of the story if you're curious.
