    1. [KING-NC] Checking the Lists
    2. George W. Durman
    3. Just had a subscriber who can't post to the Lists and thought I would post a test message to see if any posts are getting through. I thought it odd that there haven't been ANY posts at all this month. Come on folks, let's get to work and do some posting here. (GRIN) Regards, George W. Durman KING-NC and KING-TN Mailing Lists Administrator (Sarge)

    1. [KING-NC] KING of Bertie county, NC
    2. A. S. Balch
    3. Only recently, I learned that my Gray B. KING m. 1 May 1825 Susan ASHBURN in Bertie county, NC. Does anyone know anything about the KINGs of Bertie county? I know nothing about him prior to 1825, and little from then on. No parents, no siblings, no nothin'. Same for his wife Susan ASHBURN. Thank you, Adrian

    1. Re: [KING-NC] Tennessee Kings came from Wake County NC
    2. AVLady/Tate/King
    3. I saw him on the 1860 census and put his b. @ about 1802. Stokes' first named "might" be Henry but I've gathered no documentation on this except for another King researcher's supposition. Clearly, he was commonly known as Stokes (per the census). It's also rumored that he married Francis Brown of the Absolem Brown line. Again, I've found no documentation but my resources are very limited. In the 1830 Warren Co. census, there is a Stokes King residing a few houses down from Robert and Sarah (Knight) O`Rear; William Knight is also in the neighborhood. Seems the Kings also resided with the Knight family in Edgecombe Co., NC but it`s unknown if the migratory patterns extend to the King family. The Stokes King line connects Russell, Mooneyham, Green, Perry and Mansfield lines (some undocumented but I've found census information for a lot of them). 1840 census - this has Stokes in Warren County with 0 children 0-5, 1 child 5-10, 3 children 10-15, and 1 adult 30-40, 1 adult 40-50, 2 adults 50-60 and 1 adult 90-100. There is a common (mis?) conception that Stokes' father was Richard S. I don't find documentation for this and am thinking Richard S. could be a brother or uncle. We (my sister and a cousin) can find no information on Richard S. Supposedly Richard S.' father was Thomas L. King who married Elizabeth Markham/Marcum/etc. Some documentation on Thomas but unclear where/who the source is for this statement: " Thomas KING aged 64 or 65 states he was born and raised in Orange County, N.C. and was raised form his earliest recollection with the applicant and his family, their fathers lived with in two miles of one another. He has a clear recollection of the battle of KIRKS plantation, and was well aquatinted with the officers and many of the men on both sides. The company muster ground was on his father`s land. Deponent removed to this county 22 years ago."

    1. [KING-NC] Important Notice for AOL Users
    2. George W. Durman
    3. From time to time, we List Administrators have problems with subscribers to our Lists whose email server is AOL. This note is sent to explain the problem and to attempt to help AOL users correctly configure their email settings. The AOL mail system uses both a "Black List" and a "White List". The Black List contains those email addresses that the user does NOT want to receive email from; the White List contains those email addresses that the user DOES want to receive email from. The problem with AOL's system is that if a user puts, for example, the address johnqpublic@whatever.com in his/her Black List, and JohnQPublic is a subscriber to a Mailing List at Rootsweb, then AOL, for some reason, rejects all email from the List. If you're an AOL user, PLEASE make sure you don't "Blacklist" any List subscribers, AND make sure you have put the email address of the Mailing List(s) in your "White List". Thanks, Sarge

    1. [KING-NC] Tennessee Kings came from Wake County NC
    2. Barbara King
    3. Some of the Tennessee King families came from Wake. Some of my ancestors siblings/nieces and nephews ended up in Tennessee, as well as GA and AL. It's around 1800, so there are lots of blank spaces still. Seems like they are associated with Drury King line, who may have had a brother named Francis. Drury (b. abt. 1744)was from Edgecombe, migrated to Wake. Francis was also in Wake. Barbara King

    1. [KING-NC] Problems at BellSouth
    2. George W. Durman
    3. Just for information for those of you who use BellSouth as your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Since the "merger" of BellSouth and AT&T, there have been problems for a lot of users getting their emails from Rootsweb. The folks at Rootsweb haven't yet figured out what is wrong that is causing BellSouth to not accept emails from Rootsweb. Users have been "bounced" for about a week and a half now; some have re-subscribed, only to be "bounced" once again. So, if you're a BellSouth user, be advised that if you stop receiving posts to any Rootsweb Lists, you may have been bounced. The best thing to do is to contact the various List Administrators and have them check to see if you're still subscribed. I know it is kind of silly for me to speak to you about this problem, since if you have been un-subscribed, you won't see this; but... some are still subscribed and this is for them in case they, too, get "bounced". You can always reach the Admin of a List by sending an email to: LISTNAME-admin@rootsweb.com. In case you do send email to Admins and you don't get a reply, try sending to the personal address of the Admin. My address can be found in the From: header of these emails, and below.

    1. [KING-NC] Austin and Gray KING
    2. A. S. Balch
    3. Nancy, I cannot recall if I responded to your query. No, I don't know if my Gray (Grey?) KING is related to your line. To my knowledge, he never lived in VA--just NC and TN. If I knew where to search in TN, I might find something because there is a family note that he was a "prominent businessman in Nashville" prior to leaving for Texas with his wife and children. He would have been there in the 1820s or early 1830s. If only I could find Austin KING. They have got to be related somehow. I tried to find a connection to Vice President KING--if that had been successful, my KING search would have been complete! Go into politics and you find out more about yourself and your family than you ever wanted to know! :-) I do have a copy of the document listing his estate after dying during the Runaway Scrape. Does anyone know if further details might be on record, given that this document exists? Like a will? Thanks! Adrian

    2. Nancy Clayton
    3. Hi! I've never heard that King story -- isn't it amazing they survived? The story of our family has always been about the two brothers who came as indentured servants - (debts and in service for 7 years in the colonies). We also had one cousin who said there were 7 King brothers who settled in what is now West Virginia - or southwest Virginia in the early 1800s. Just don't know which is correct. I've contacted several researchers in Delaware - but no luck on the birth of my William King there in 1779. Also have a dead end with Sarah Garner, William's wife. Tried Carter County, TN - where they were married in 1803, still no luck. One of these days --- I'll find them!!

    3. You got me all excited, but then my Benjamin Franklin was most likely b. TN and quite a bit earlier than yours. He was a printer in Houston, TX, in 1836. Don't know what happened to him after that. Do you know who the parents and siblings were of Barnabas? Adrian

    3. Hi Nancy, We have a family story on the Kings from late 1700's where two King brothers were captured by indians, later released and adopted by a family surname White. Have you or any of the King descendants heard this story? Thanks, Yvonne -----Original Message----- From: king-nc-bounces@rootsweb.com [mailto:king-nc-bounces@rootsweb.com] On Behalf Of Nancy Clayton Sent: Saturday, March 17, 2007 9:59 AM To: king-nc@rootsweb.com Subject: Re: [KING-NC] Austin and Gray KING Interesting info about the King who died in the Runaway Scrape in Texas. Thank you for posting. I have worked on my King lines for years - trying to connect with lines from Virginia or North Carolina. I am stuck on the lines from my GGG Grandfather William King, born 1779. One of his sons - Elias King - was in Texas during the 1836 revolution - fought with General Sam Houston, but went back to Virginia and settled in Kentucky. Could he be related to the Grey King? Several folks say our William is related to the North Carolina King lines that ended up in Buncome or Yancey counties, coming from Lee County Virginia. However, he is listed in the census as being born in Delaware. Several researchers have tried to connect him to the Burwell King lines of North Carolina, also. Just can't get a link to any! I've put all I know about my lines below -- maybe it will help others. Nancy ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------- THE WILLIAM KING FAMILY Our King line may have come to the New World (Virginia) in the early 1600's, possibly in the Second Virginia Charter or later -1620's to 1640's. We have always been told there were two King brothers who came to Virginia because they could not pay their debts in Scotland or England. They worked for 7 years to pay off their debts and married Indian women. This story has been passed down but has never been proved. The recorded history we have starts with our first-known ancestor, William KING: William King b. 10 JUL 1779 Delaware? VA? NC? d. 27 SEP 1865 Claiborne County, Tennessee m. 19 AUG 1803 Carter County, Tennessee One cousin says William was born 10 OCT 1779 in Delaware, but William's tombstone in Claiborne County, TN reads "July 10, 1779" William King married Sarah (Hammer? McClellan?) GARNER in Carter County, TN on August 19, 1803. She was born August 24, 1781 - but we are not sure where - possibly Virginia or North Carolina. Sarah died March 30, 1862. We don't know who her parents were. (Could be from the GARDNER line of Scott County, VA?) There is a William KING family on the 1820 Scott County, VA census, with children's ages that match the William KING family. There are two other KING families living in Scott County in 1820 -- both John KING households. (Perhaps brother or uncle of my William?) William and Sarah Garner King are both buried in Coleman Cemetery, Claiborne County, TN. William and Sarah moved to Claiborne County, TN around 1830.
