Re: Acree-BEVERLY marriages, eastern NC?
I cannot help you exactly, but my ancestor was named "Beverly Dandridge Acree". He was born about 1790-1795, perhaps in Hanover Co VA or SpartanburgDist SC. He was the son of William Acree who appears to be the son of Joshua Acree of Hanover Co VA. William lived in Spartanburg Dist SC in 1813, but by 1816 Dandridge and his father William were in Rutherford Co TN.
I have always believed that the "Beverly" part of Dandridge's name came from an Acree-Beverly marriage, but thus far I have no proof.
