Family in Raleigh and Pasquotank Co., NC; 1845
I hope this will be of interest to someone - From the "Yearbook, Pasquotank Historical Society, Vol. 3" is the following:
Will Book N, page 211 - 8 September 1845 - Mathews, Frederick A.S. - Estate to Fanny Birdsall, daughter of Stephen Birdsall of Raleigh, N.C., she being at the time, petioned to be my wife.Sister Mary S. Butler, brothers John and William.Exec: William W. Griffin, W.F. Martin and C.W. Brooks, who were also witnesses to the will.Probated March 1847"
I do not have any further information.
