Dan: I know you have done extensive original research there in the North Carolina Archives, and have access to records the rest of us have not had; but can you please tell us what you have the traces our family back to the Hugh of 1635? When you sent me your manuscript for editing, I did not photocopy it before returning it. I felt it would be unethical, without your permission, and I hoped to purchase your book when it came out. Is it out yet?
The bible record mentioned in my newsletter was not exactly "family lore" Thomas wrote that in 1824, saying his grandfather was "born in America in 1696". His grandfather died when Thomas was 25 years of age, and Thomas lived in the same town as his grandfather for those 25 years. It was probably more than just "family lore".
There is documentation in Annapolis that tells us that Hugh, Jr. (son of the Hugh of 1635) died in 1702. Our Hugh was just 6 years old. I would think he would have been too young to have been deliberately left out of his father's will. Maybe he was an uncle. Hugh, Jr. left his estate to people named Watson and Torrey. I think these were his sisters' names. It appears that he had no children of his own.
