Re: Ellender Tripp & William Swofford
Ellender Trippe who married William Swofford was the daughter of Nicholas Trippe and Nancy (Ann) King (Coode/Cude)Trippe. Nicholas and Nancy were married about 1745.Ellender was born about 1746 give or take a year. Nicholas was Nancy's second husband. She was first married to John Coode/Cude who died around 1743.Ellender McNammara and William King were the parents of Nancy.Ellener and William did have a son James born 1768 probably in Orange Co. (now Randolph Co) NC. This might be the James you are looking for. William was a Quaker he and his family were members of the New Garen Meeting. There should be records of what you are looking for.
