e-mail direct - we have 30,000 Overtons in files, Catherine , her sister Licea(to Fred Avery) were married in camden & Perq, counties. As was Sophia if she is thier widowed mother, she was married to Barker, & in 1812takes an indentured FCP Lavina Overton.Sophia, not her husband. Oddly every thing we have seen on Catherine aka Cynthia gives jennings husband as Garland! Re; Willis as husband of Sophia (& we have seen no proven connection of her to Catherine or Lecea) there are only a few Willis: 1)BB1748 in nc & 2) by 1755 & deceased ? by 1790 in Currituck co wfe seems to be Mary ann. 3&4)1766 & 67 cousins of Orange co Va to Ga & Tenn. & alive in 1830s 5)1790of Pitt co.
Vance while in the North part of NC is not close to Perq/Camden area. The Vance Co Overtons are part of the Granville/Franklin mixed bloods. & so far no known connection to the multi-racials Overtons of Perq, Camden & Pasquotank area. there are actually 1000,s of Overton in the latter area.
