Re: John Cager Williford b.1845 Sampson or Harnett Co.
Our line seems to descend from: John-Richard-William-Micajah-Thomas-Warren-John Cager Williford of NC. Curious about the pronounciation of Micajah. Yes it does seem possible Cader or Cager could be protracted from Micajah if the pronounciaton is similiar. Our family has always been curious to the "Cougar" Cager name itself as it is very unusual. Do you have any information on John Cager who married Mary Jane West? I'm trying to establish that these are my g. grandmothers parents and verify the family line written above is indeed correct. Their last home was Dunn, NC. (Harnett County) although I believe they were originally from Sampson County. SC
