Re: Lazarus Traynum born 1771 in NC
Pam~ My ggg-grandfather was Jeremiah Trainum who married Elizabeth Wilson 10 Jan 1810 in Williamson County, Tennessee. Jeremiah served in Company H of the 3rd South Carolina Reserves. I am trying to figure out who his parents were. I believe Jeremiah had a son named Pleasant (which seems to be a family name). He also had a son Cornelius Wilson (C.W.) who was named after his wife's father. The names Clem (and versions thereof) and Dewitt are also prevalent in the family. I am wondering if your Lazarus could possibly be Jeremiah's father, uncle or brother. Do you know anything about Obediah Trainum or William T. Trainum? I have also seen the names Willis and Martin. Any help appreciated.
