In Reply to: Thomas Ferebee b.1774 Currituck,NC m.Nancy Brunt by Richard Brunt of 98

One of my books, "Davie County Heritage" has a little information on these people:

"From Currituck County, North Carolina came a colony of people, among whom were the Brocks, Fulford's, Brickhouses, Taylors, Gibbs, Lunn and Ferebee. They all settled in Farmington Township, Rowan County (now Davie) about 1811. Davie County was part of Rowan in 1836. The area was called Little Currituck for some time. Among them was Thomas Ferebee married Nancy Brunt. Their son, Peter Ferebee married Susan Lunn. Daughter Eliabeth Ferebee married James Eaton and their children: Alexander Eaton m. Eveline Collette; N. Columbus Eaton m. Betsy Ann Hunter; Frank Eaton m. Nannie Green; Richard Eaton M. Jennie Gordon; son Rush died young; Thomas L. Eaton M. Lou Jane Stonestreet; Paulina Eaton m. Rev. Green Brown; Elizabeth Eaton m. John P. Green; Susan Eaton m. John Naylor, Jr.; Sallie died in childhood." (There is a photograph of some of these people.)

There is further information in the book on the Eatons.

In another article on "The Family of Thomas and Elizabeth Ferebee Furches" is the following:

"Thomas married Elizabeth Ferebee, who lived on a nearby farm, in the early 1820s. Elizabeth Ferebee was the daughter of Thomas Ferebee and Nancy Brunt Ferebee, who had come to Davie County from Currituck County, North Carolina. Elizabeth was born in 1808, and she lived at the place which in 1996 is the Thoroughbred Training Center on Cana Road. (Submitted by Elizabeth Tutterow, High Point, NC."

There is further information in the book on these people.
There are Ferebees listed in the index of at least eight other families.
