If you try to E-mail me at the old address I will not recieve it unless someone can help me with a problem with Outlook Express. It has been messed up since early Jan.
The only I have found in Camden Co was James P. Marchant. There was a dr. who lived in Currituck Co. a little later who owned land in Camden Co. James P. Marchant was relaited to the Pearce and McBride families. When Peter McBride died in Lousianna his great-neice wrote to Ira Pearce looking for the heirs. She said that Peter McBride was the brother of Sally Pearce and Polly Marchant among others. James P. Marchant and his sons wrote Ira Pearce several letters from Dyer Co. Tenn in the 1840s and 50s. James P. Marchant always called Ira "brother". His sons called Ira "Uncle". James P. Marchant bought land for the first time in 1810. He had been living in Warren RI before that. He married Mary (Polly) Edney soon after 1826 when she inhirited some land. She must have been his second wife. His three oldest children were too old to be from that marriage. He moved to Dyer Co about 1841. Samuel Pearce mentioned in a letter about that time that "brother" James P. Marchant had stoped by to see him. Some of us believe that he must have been the son of Polly Marchant and must have been an orphan raised by her sister Sally Pearce. Sally's husband James Pearce was from Warren RI. The McBride's were from Camden Co. NC. The Methodist Church was named for them.
