I'm searching for the ancestors of my greatgrandmother Amanda Nored (b. 23 Mar 1857 probably Shelby Co., TN-d. 4 Jan 1924 Cleburne Co., AR).She married Hugh Hazelwood in 1883.
Her parents were William C. and Elizabeth A. "Betsy" Crisenberry [Quisenberry/Christenbury] Nored who were married in Henry Co., TN, 8 Sep 1838/39. I have William and Betsey in the 1840 Henry Co., TN, Census then the 1850 Shelby Co., TN, Census and then from 1860 on they were in Van Buren/Cleburne Co., AR.
I believe William C.'s parents were William and Nancy [Taylor] Nored married about 1806? in South Carolina?William and Nancy are listed in the 1850 Henry Co., TN, Census as Wm. Norred 70 SC, Nancy 55 NC.I have Wm. Norrod in the 1810 & 1820 Stewart Co., TN, Census and then the 1830-1850 Henry Co., TN, Census.
If William Norred was born in 1780 in South Carolina, the only Norreds I've found were "Norwoods".In 1775 a Benjamin Norwood and wife Mary sold land on Indian Creek around Newberry and Laurens Counties, SC.In the 1790 South Carolina Census there is a Samuel Norwood in the Cheraws Dist. and a Samuel Norwood in Newberry County.In the 1800 South Carolina Census there is a Benjamin Norwood in Laurens County.There is a Nancy Taylor in the 1800 Laurens Co., SC, Census with a female the age to be Nancy that married William Norred.
Does anyone know if my William Norred born abt. 1780 SC is the son of Benjamin Isaac Norrod b. 1735 - d. 1815/16 Stewart Co., TN, or someone else?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks a million.
