My recent issue of "Carolina Trees & Branches, Volume XIII, Number 1, January 2004, has information about London R. Ferebee. "He is the son of the late Elder Abel M. Ferebee of the Virginia Conference of the A.M.E. Zion Church in America. He was the son of the Rev. Robert Simmons, of Currituck Co., North Carolina. During the time of slavery, while a slave, he was granted license under the M.E. Church, South, to preach, and was associated by the Rev. Gabriel Whitehurst....The Rev. A.M. Ferebee was an active Elder until within nine days of death.....was in charge of three churches in Pasquotank Co., and one in Perquimans Co. He was a blacksmith by trade. Married about the age of twenty-three or twenty-four, to a woman owned by Mrs. Oley Whitehurst, of Currituck County, by the name of Chloe.. the number of their children was ten - seven boys and three girls."

None of the children is named except London, however there is further information on him. Neither of the names you mentioned are in this article, but it is to be continued in the April issue.

You can probably order a copy of both these issues from the Family Research Society of NorthEastern North Carolina, P.O. Box 1425, Elizabeth City, NC 27906-1425. They might also have further information in their records on the people you are interested in.
