On a couple of the census' I have found on N.B. neither him nor his wife or children could read, write or spell, so alot of times things were spelt like they sounded. I cannot get any earlier than N.B. or MariahHaynes, all family members know is that N.B.'s Father was from Georgia, where N.B. was supposely born, and then on one census it says something about Virginia, and then, Alabama. If anyone can help me please I would very much appreciate this.
