I have in my possession 3 different death certificates of people naming their parents - William H. Durham and Phoebe LAWSON. (Thomas Jackson Durham; Nancy Ann (Durham) CATRON; and Alexander Durham).
William H. Durham and Phoebe (sometimes spelled Phebe), are found in the 1850/1860 Census for Surry County, NC; 1870 Census for Grayson County, Virginia; and 1880/1900 Census for Tazewell County, VA;
My best guess is that Pheobe (Phebe) LAWSON is possibly the daughter of James Lawson and Nancy Hurt, since they seem to follow the same path.Does anyone have any information confirming the parents of Phoebe LAWSON??
