.. +Mrs Margaret Trickey b: Abt. 1745 m: Aft. 1764
Can you give me any more information about this lady? I've always believe that David Pinkerton's reference in his Orange Co. will (written 1764, probated 1772), to his stepdaughter Agnes Trickey, was in reference to the wife of my 6th great grandfather, Giles Trickey (1731-1802), and that Margaret, the second Mrs. David Pinkerton, would have been Agnes' mother..... and not necessarily named Trickey.
Giles Trickey was born in the village of Broadclyst or Broad Clyst, Devon, England in 1731, a son of William Trickey and Agnis Pummery (Agnes Pomeroy?) Giles appears on the 1777 tax list of Caswell Co., NC (a section of Orange Co. had been taken to form Caswell that year). The area where he lived became Person Co. in 1792. Giles wrote his will in 1795, and it was probated in 1802, in Person Co. Apparently, his wife had died before 1795, as she is not mentioned in the will.
Giles' will mentions sons William and John, and daughters Annis and Elizabeth. Both Annis (1767-1844) and Elizabeth (1774-1855) had married DeWeese brothers, sons of Jonathan DeWeese (c. 1723-1777) who had come from Delaware to NC in 1772. Annis married Hezekiah DeWeese (1760-1839), a soldier of the Revolution, and they were my 5th great grandparents. They settled on lands adjoining the Ramah Presbyterian Church, in Mecklenburg Co., NC around 1800. Elizabeth married Rev. Jonathan DeWeese, Jr. (1767-1849), and they went to Greenville Co., SC sometime before 1799.
At any rate, I'd be most grateful for any information you could give me on Mrs. Margaret Pinkerton.
