I am descended from Leland Sherrill and Nancy Honeycutt. For several years now I've been looking for Nancy's parents. My research has led me to look for possible candidates in the 1800, 1810, and 1820 census. My information indicates that Nancy was born in Lincoln County, NC around 1810. (While this seems to be an accepted fact by Sherrill Genealogists, I have yet to find anybody to tell me why they assume this to be correct!)
I've recently been going though the posting on GenForum regarding Asa Honeycutt/Hunnicutt - he being one of my possible candidates. In the 1820 census, there is a girl under 10 yrs listed on his entry. Does anyone know who this girl is?
Also, does anyone have any information on Haywood Honeycutt? He is listed on the 1840 census in Lincoln County, living near Leland and Nancy. Again, according to Sherrill geneology, he married Tibertha Sherrill, Leland's sister.
