Re: Irelands in NC, 1800-1810
Glad to be of help.Most of my information on this line is from a book called The Caffey Family by Wm. Stewart Caffey.It is on the Genealogy library.com by Familytreemaker.com.The Ireland line connects to the Caffey Family and the Iseley family.I don't have anything from the book on those lines as my interest of of the Ireland line only, and as a side line.My father had two Ireland half brothers and a Ireland Half Sister, whom were taken by other family members when their mother died.Father was 3 at the time.So finding out about these lost brothers has been a focus of part of my search.
William Ireland son of Samuel Ireland and Sarah (Celia)Ross had a son named Tillman Ireland.Tillman Ireland is the father of Lewis Ireland, who was the father of my two half uncles and half aunt.Their names were Silvia Ireland, Lewis Ireland and Eva Foster Ireland.I have more on William if you would like.
I have no more on the Ross family, and Kello(w) is how the name is spelled in the book...so I'm assuming they found the name spelled both ways in their research.I would recommend that you use your own research to back all this up, as I did find major errors when it got to my uncles and my grandmother...(lots of it was based on family oral history).
More on the Ireland children of Sarah Ross:
Daniel Ireland: Tradition says that Daniel lived in Nolensville, TN and in Kentucky.Census records supposely show a Daniel Ireland in Williamson Co., TN in 1820 and 1830.The latter shows one son and three daughters.Also states that he had a son named Samuel...some saying he lived in Illinois and some saying he lived in Greensboro, Guilford Co., NC.
John Ireland is said to have served in the War of 1812 in the Haw River Company of Orange Co.The book again says that the stories disagree...some saying he stayed in Alamance Co., and another that he never married but was a merchant in Illinois, killed by the "infamous Murrell gang" while he traveled down the Mississippi River to sell hides in New Orleans.
Jonathan Ireland is said to have moved to Tennessee with his mother and Thomas Kello(w).He married had a family and later moved to Illinois.
Samuel Ross Ireland died in July 1888 in Sampson Co., NC.He was buried at the Faison, NC, Cemetery.He moved to TN with his mother and Thomas, then returned to NC and lived in Duplin and Sampson Co.He was married July 24, 1833 in Duplin Co., NC to Eliza Newton, who was b. 1/19/1810 and died 8/8/1896.I have more on their children if you would like.
