Re: Moses E. Tison & Rebecca Reagan
While researching the Belcher family some time ago, I copied some references from Index and Abstracts of Deeds of Pitt Co., NC compiled by Judith DuPree Ellison 1968. In Vol IV I found both the Belcher and the Tison name. Some of the Tison names were Moses, Benjamin, Sherrod Tison.
There is the statement that Patsey Belcher (grantee) was the daughter of Moses Tison; Sherrod Tison was a witness. Patsey Belcher was in Greene Co., NC 18 Apr 1821. NOTE: Patsey is often used as a nickname for Martha.
Do you have any Belcher names in your research?
Also, it says that Moses Tison m. Elizabeth Joiner, sister of Isaac, and had daughter, Martha Tison m. Benjamin Belcher. I imagine that Martha is Patsey Tison Belcher, of the above statement.
I made short notes, but I believe that I have that George Belcher, grantor, of Greene Co., NC to Moses Tison Sr., with witnesses Sally Belcher, Sherrod Tison, Benjamin Belcher/Belsher.3/18/1815
Also Ben Belsher and Elizabeth Tison as witnesses for Sherrod Tison 20 July 1826.
If this is relative to you, be sure to look up these references for yourself as I did make extremely short notes.
I am interested in the name Sherrod Tison because a Philip Belcher b. 1800 GA named one ofhis sons Sherrod Belcher; I'm trying to find the father of Philip.John Belcher b. 1781 Greene (or that area) Co., NC moved from Greene Co., NC 1825-1827 to Jefferson Co., GA [1850 Jefferson Co., GA census].
