John Jay and Elizabeth Fooshee/Foushee

Hello,

I am interested in locating information about the family of Elizabeth Fooshee/Foushee who married John Jay in Person County in the late 1700's.

Is there anyone on this list who is a descendant of this couple?
>>Bride: Elizabeth Fooshee
>>Groom: John Jay
>>Bond Date: 06 Mar 1794
>>County: Person
>>Record #: 01 084
>>Bondsman: Wm Hargis
>>Witness: J Womack
>>Bond #: 000107986
>>North Carolina Marriage Bonds, 1741-1868

I am particularly interested in the given names of their children.

I have several great-aunts who married into the Fooshee/Foushee family of the Person/Caswell area.  I wonder what you know of Elizabeth Fooshee's heritage.  I am wondering if she were a sister of Adnah Campbell Foushee who was the progenitor of the Foushee father and son who married my great-aunts. Ere you think that this was an incestuous family, the father married a second time; he married the elder sister of his son's wife, making the two sisters add the relationship of mother-in-law/daughter-in-law to their profile; and their children share the first cousin/ neice/nephew/aunt/uncle relationships, as there were offspring of both marriages.

Thanks in advance for your help on this.

Best regards,

John Fox
