    1. [KING-NC] Kings of Old Buncombe County, NC
    2. I am trying to discover the parents of Marcus Lafayette King who was born in Buncombe County, NC on 14 February 1815 and later moved to Rabun County, Georgia where he remained the rest of his life. He had a brother named General Jackson King. Acording to the 1880 Census Marcus L. King stated that his father was born in North Carolina and his mother was born in Virginia. I have researched Buncombe and surrounding counties discovering several King families, but so far nothing that can tie my Marcus King into any of those families. According to family lore we are supposed to be related somehow to Mary Elizabeth King, born in NC in 1794, the daughter of Joseph James King and his wife Laodecia Morgan. Mary Elizabeth King married David N. McClain and they also moved to Rabun County, Georgia. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Lawrence Holcombe ************************************** See what's free at
