Wife of Jacob Jernigan (1712-1795) of Bertie Co, NC
Some people's trees on ancestry.com have the wife of Jacob Jernigan (1712-1795) being Rachel Bryan whose father was Needham Bryan.
I see no sources for this and it seems unlikely.Needham Bryan's ancestry leads back to the King of England.
There appears to have been a Rachel Bryan:
Rachel BRYAN, b. 10 June 1723, Bertie, NC; d. 6 Nov. 1780, Pleasant Plains, Wayne, NC; m. 6 Nov. 1741
who was married to:
William WHITFIELD, Jr., b. 20 May 1715, Nansemond, VA; d. 31 Mar. 1795, Pleasant Plains, Wayne, NC.
I believe this Rachel Bryan was not the wife of Jacob Jernigan.So, who was his wife?Is the only thing known is that she was the "Widow Hinton"?That's not much to go on.
