Hi Rebecca,

Not 100% sure but I think and evidence backs me that William of Wilkes Co. GA had parents William And Elizabeth who were of Hanover Co.VA by the year 1735. As for the parants of William and Elizabeth ? I don't know !!!

It is easy to believe that the above was the case because there are a few records that establishes an Acree Family in the Hanover region prior to the NC era. BUT the truth of the matter is that most of the Counties in the Tidewater area of VA lost their records to court building fires during the Civil War.There is no telling what story these missing records would have told us.

I know nothing about the Martin Family...

I am not a descendant of William of Granville. My wife is a descendant of John Acree who was of Bertie County by the year 1759. Bertie Co. and Warren Co are not the far away from each other, BUT I have found no evidence that John Acree was a brother of Isaac & William. There are people out there who have assigned John as a son of William & Elizabeth and they may be right but I can't find the proof or clues for that matter.

regards,

John Stevens
