On the 1840 Henderson County Census, Nancy Mackey is listed as the wife of William Trull.On the 1850 census for the same county, Nancy appears with son Joel.GGG Grandpa William Anderson Trull died in 1849.
The information I have about Mary "Polly" England being the wife of William Trull comes from England family records and was made available by an England contact who lives in Arizona.Other England's also contacted me with the same information.
Mary's father, (John)Alexander England, was born in NC and was Cherokee Indian, not full.His parents' names have not been proved.He was married twice.First to Abigail Wilson in NC.Ten children were born to them, of which Mary "Polly" was the fourth.
Abigail died in 1849, and Alexander remarried the following year to Martha Abigail Hefner.They had seven children together.
Alexander moved his family to Winston Co., AL between 1854 and 1856 (going by the DOBs of the children.In 1864 Alexander was bushwhacked by three white men on horseback while in his field bailing hay.He died by his wagon, while his eight-year-old son, Burr, watched. This happened at the edge of Bankhead Forest.Nothing was done to his killers, because, at that time, it wasn't against the law to kill and Indian.
A tombstone was later placed at Pinetorch Church in the Bankhead Forest.Alexander's second wife is buried in the Pinetorch Church Cemetery.
This information was given to me by members of the England family.The story about him also appears in the Winston County Heritage Book.
The information about Nancy Mackey Trull was given to me by a retired attorney who researches early Buncombe/Henderson County residents.
