~1800-1870 | Spatranburg District, South Carolina
The parents of Susan Kirby have not been determined. It is known that they were born in South Carolina, as was Susan. There are over 20 Kirby heads-of-household on the 1840 census for South Carolina. Of those, five (William, Tery, John, Green and Hawkins) are from Spartanburg County where Susan and Alexander LACKEY married. All of these seem to be too young to be Susan's father.
After Susan married Alexander LACKEY, they lived for a time in South Carolina before returning to Alexander's home in North Carolina. It is possible that they were living with Susan's parents.
~1790-1860 | Wilkes County, NC
Original research has not revealed the parents of Priscilla WALKER. Priscilla was born in 1812 so her parents would have been married before then and would have been born probably before the early 1790's. Priscilla was married to John McGINNIS in Wilkes County so her family was likely from Wilkes County. The WALKER men in Wilkes County in 1820 when Priscilla was eight were; Charles, Eli, George, James, Jesse, John, Josiah, Richard and William.
~1740-1810 | Lincoln County, NC
The parents of Jennett SMITH are unknown. Secondary sources suggest that her parents are John and Poly SMITH. Jennett possibly married in Lincoln County so it is possible that her parents were from Lincoln County. Mentioned in Jennett's husband Robert Bogle's estate are William Smith and James Smith. It is likely that these men are either/or her father or brothers.
