Jim Just wanted to let you know I read your posting. I have folders scattered right now trying to enter some new information I found in Barnwell records. There was a Rebecca Stringfellow, widow to William Stringfellow. His "worthy friend" Johnathan Allred was an executor of his estate. I believe the will was written in 1812. I will check my notes. A Phineas Allred is said to be the father of my Lavina Allred Coward married to Cullen Coward. There is another Lavinia or Lavina (different spellings) that married a Stephen Coward. That isn't my Lavina. I think that the two families have been mixed together in some people's data. I think that the other Lavinia was daughter ofa Jonathan Allred. I have found one mention of a Phineas in land records in Barnwell as a chain carrier. Mostly Jonathon Allred listed.
Concerning the Stringfellows,a Henry Stringfellow maybe the father to my Leroy Stringfellow. I am still trying to put that puzzle together. A Henry Stringfellow was listed as a son to the William Stringfellow I mentioned above. I hope this helps some and doesn't add to confusion. Feel free to contact my email address. If interested I can email pic of William's will. Cynthia
