Re: Charles BOOKOUT and Nancy Ann CAGLE
I am descended from Charles and Nancy Ann (Cagle) Bookout and am willing to share what I have. My line is Charles, John, James Oliver, Sarah (Bookout) Swearengin, James Swearengin, Louie Swearengin, Veldena (Swearengin) Bench.Also Charles, John, Malinda (Bookout) Brown, Sarah (Brown) Hargis, Jack Hargis, Yvonne (Hargis) Bench, Don Bench. I am descended twice from Charles' son John and wife Sarah (Vaughn) Bookout. Charles was the son of Joseph Bookout of North Carolina born 1700 and died 1806 in Randolph Co., NC. He is buried at Holly Springs Friends Meeting House Cemetery 6 miles SW of Ramseur in Randolph County. Joseph is refered to in several publications as an example of non quakers buried in quaker cemeteries. Was buried in 1806 at the age of 105 years, 11 months, and 7 days. Joseph's lineage is not known and there are many seeking to discover it. It is suspected that he may be the son of Peter Janszen Boeckhout of New York and second wife Engeltie Jeuriaene.
