I need some help... My Lilley line goes back in Gates Co, NC to an Elizabeth (maiden name unk) Lilley, children James Edward and Docton Lilley and grandson Washington Lilley per her 1850 Gates Co. will. I do not know the name of the Lilley she married. She would have been born ca. 1790-1800.
This, I believe, points to a relationship back to Thomas Docton d. 1754 in Perquimans Co. His daughter Rebecca m. Lewis Bond. Their daughter Elizabeth Bond m. Abner Eason Jr, son of Abner Eason and Rachel Docton (Rebecca Docton's neice). Abner Eason Jr and Elizabeth Bond's daughter Elizabeth Eason is the person in question. Their 9th child, she would also have been born ca. 1790-1800.
Does anyone know who she married? Could she be my Elizabeth? I have traced the Thomas Docton line as best I could and this Elizabeth is the only one I could find born at the right place at the right time to have married my Lilley ancestor and named a son Docton. Would appreciate feedback from anyone. Jethro.
