Hello, Saw your message posted two yrs ago. I was wondering if you are still researching the Stockley (Stokely) family.
There is a possibility that my 4th GG was the father of John Stokely Colvard of Elbert Co., GA.
Thomas Colvard/Calvert/Colbert and his wife Sarah lived in Halifax and Bute (Franklin/Warren) County, NC beginning in 1768.
I believe, but can't prove, that my 8th GG was Christopher Calvert of Accomack Co., VA.There are several families living in Franklin Co., NC that can trace their family trees to Accomack Co in the 1600's.The Pinnell's, Bibby's, Woodward's. My family is related to the above families, and therefore, I believe Christopher Calvert is the progenitor of my family.
What I find interesting is that the Stokley and Bushford and Woodward families also lived in Bute County the same time my family lived there.
John Stokely Colvard of Elbert Co., GA had a brother named William Bushford Colvard.
