Re: William Battle(II) of N.C.
My SUMNER information is not extensive at all where the BATTLE family is concerned.What I have is this:
Elizabeth Sumner, daughter of John Sumner, was born cir 1824 in North Carolina and died on 19 Jan 1794 in Edgecombe Co., NC.She married Elisha Battle, I, who was born on 9 Jan 1723 in Nansemond Co., VA and died on 6 Mar 1799 in Edgecombe Co., NC.
Elisha and Elizabeth lived on the Tar River in Edgecombe Co., NC.
Their children are listed as follows:
1.Sarah Battle, born 1732 in Nansemond Co., VA.
2.John Battle, I, born 1745 in Nansemond Co., VA.
3.Elizabeth Ruth Battle, born 1747 in Edgecombe Co., NC.
4.Elisha Battle, II, born 1749 in Edgecombe Co., NC.
5.William Battle, born 8 Nov 1751 in Edgecombe Co., NC.
6.Jacob Battle, born 22 Apr 1754 in Edgecombe Co., NC.
7.Jethro Battle, born 1756 in Edgecombe Co., NC.
8.Dempsey Battle, born 4 Dec 1758 in Edgecombe Co., NC.
Was Dempsey Battle named after your ancestor, Dempsey Sumner?
This information mostly came from The Battle Book.Hope it helps some!
