Hi Linda,
The relationship of this Ferebee family to the other families in VA and NC is not known to me, but I suspect that they are kin. A Ferebee appears in the 1790 Federal Census of the Edgefield District of SC and the surname appears in the Beaufort area soon afterwards. Below are data from another researcher about this clan. If you have any clues that may help link this family back to VA please share it with me.
Sincerely, H F Hansen
