I am sure there are others more knowledgeable about this.I am a BATTLE descendant, and in the course of doing research about Sarah Battle, found this....
William HORN was the father of Milberry HORN.
Edgecombe Co, NC, Db 5,page 519, deed date ?, recorded Nov Ct 1790, William Horn, Bertie Co to my son in law, Joseph Philips, Edge. Co for love, good will and affection, a Negro girl named Jinny, which he now has in his possession, signed Wm. Horn, wit Etheldred Philips, Exum Lewis, Jr.Abstracted 10-19-04, NCA film C.037.40007, CTC.
From what I have read, Milberry was possibly raised by her aunt and uncle, Henry & Sarah Battle HORN.
Anyway, I had this info and thought I would pass it along.Edgecombe County has some "Phillips" around that time, and of course the Battle's all go to Tennessee, Davidson County, etc.,from there. It is possible the Phillips' did too.Good luck,Ginga (Bham, AL)
