Re: Elizabeth BLAND m. Adam GASKINS - Who were parents?
Good to get an answer on this. I did tentatively have a Thomas Bland listed as her father... but I have not had any sort of proof for that, as it was something I got from internet correspondence a few years ago before I became so strict about wanting to document everything.
Do you have any sort of source for making the link between Elizabeth and her father, Thomas?
The children I have listed for her and Adam Gaskins are as follows:
Ferebee 'Ferraby' GaskinsB. 1803
Stephen GaskinsB. 1806
Guilford GaskinsB. 1807
Louisa GaskinsB. 1809
Furnifold GaskinsB. 1815
So... my next questions are who would the eighth child be?
I suspect some line of descent from a couple of different lines... Furnifold Green, Ferebee Savage (or her daughter, Ferebee Savage Pugh)-- simply from the names listed for the children. Usually anyone who has children with those names in eastern NC descend from one of those two lines.
Do you have any information on Thomas Bland's parentage or his wife's maiden name?
Thanks in advance & I look forward to hearing from you.
