Drury Napper was head of household in the 1830, 1840 and 1850 censuses in Wilkinson Co. GA. Unless the family crossed into Barbour Co. AL for a while, it's likely that most of the children were born in Wilkinson Co. GA.Death record information is often unreliable, since info on parents, place of birth of deceased, etc. is second-hand knowledge.There is a new book out on Dale County families (don't know the title, someone copied some pages for me).Apparently, the current spelling of the family name is "Napier."Says ancestor was "James Napier served in the Revolutionary War as a member of a South Carolina regiment.He was given a land grant of 360 acres for his services.He was born around 1721 and married Mary Thompson. The date of his dath is unknown but his will was probated 30 Jan 1798 in Warren County, Georgia. James and Mary Napier had five children: Drury, Caleb, Phoebie, Cressa, and Martha.This was the beginning of dale County's Napier family that settled near Ozark.Drury Napier marriedon Roseann Spears in Wilkinson County, Georgia.They had twn children, the last named Philip who married Jane Pilcher.Their son, Henry Glenn Napier, came to Dale County, Alabama."
Of the children of Drury and Rosie, two daughters, Elvina and Minerva, married Blankinship brothers (Eli and Daniel H).Of Phillip's children by his first wife, Nellie, two (Cornelia and Molly) married Swin R Pilcher.Phillip's second wife was Alsey Jane Pilcher, whose son, Henry Glenn Napier, is the one whose family is mentioned in the article cited above.The infor on James will have to be corroborated.
