I need some help.There seems to be confusion over the descendants of Rolley Spinks - there must have been two born in NC 1787-1802. It appears that some have claimed the Rolley b. 1802 in Randolph Co as my husband's ancestor and others have him going to Bibb Co AL. My husband's Spinks family went to Clarke Co AL, then Lauderdale Co MS, Falls Co TX, Comanche Co TX and Nolan Co TX.
The elder Rolley my husband is related to is listed in Lauderdale Co MS in 1850, age 63, with wife Jane.(This has been reported to be Jane Edwards.)He had a son also Rolley (reported as 23 in 1850, but later his age was shown as having been born in 1833 and Mar 1833 is the date on 1900 census and his grave stone says 1833.We believe that he gave his age as older because he had married an older woman.By 1860 he was married to a younger woman, so used his correct age.)There was a Rolley Spinks b.@1833 in Bibb Co AL in 1850, but ours was in Lauderdale Co MS in 1850.
So, can anyone tell me the ancestors of Rolley Spinks, born in NC, age given as 63, with wife Jane, in Lauderdale Co MS in 1850?
