John, I believe I am a descendant of Bridget Vanhook and Thomas Lee Hargis. Do you know if they had a daughter named Jane Hargis that married Elias Fort in Person County, NC? I have found the marriage of Thomas Lee Hargis and Bridget Vanhook in Caswell Co., NC on 3 June 1778. Elias Fort and Jane Hargis married 10 Aug. 1815. Elias and Jane are the parents of Urban Elias Fort & Emily Fort. Emily is my great-great grandmother. Elias and Jane migrated to Missouri before Missouri even became a state. I believe Jane died there or on the way there and Elias then remarried.
I'm interested to see if you have learned any more about Bridget's father, are you saying it is Lawrence Vanhook or Loyd Vanhook? This is the first I've seen any information on who her father might be. Any information you can provide on this family would be greatly appreciated! Thanks. Diane Jones
