MarthaThank you for your prompt reply to my query. Is there any way that I might get a copy of the line which you descend theough, "George", the sn of Thomas & Eleanor? I would like to check this and see if perhaps I might have come down through this line. I believe someone once suggested that I might have. Will still try for the supposedly Eliz. Sparkman & Thomas Newbern. I do know that in several bks, it states their marriage as being in 1788 in Bertie Co, N.C. Just which Thomas, is my dilemma.
