Joel Hyman - Bertie Co., NC
Posted by: Beth Dix (ID *****1264) Date: August 16, 2008 at 15:41:07
  of 316

I am a descendant of Joel Hyman d. 1817 Bertie Co. and Polly Pender. They were married 1800 Bertie Co. In the past I was told that Joel Hyman was the son of Hugh Hyman (son of Hugh Hyman b. 1702) and Elizabeth Sparkman who were married 1767 Bertie Co. Recently, I was told that this is incorrect and that Hugh Hyman who married Elizabeth Sparkman was the son of John Hyman whose will was written 1793...not Hugh Hyman b. 1702.

In Elizabeth Sparkman's father's (William Sparkman) will written 1782 Bertie Co. he mentions daughter Elizabeth Hyman, grandchildren Elizabeth Hyman, Sarah Hyman, and Hugh Joel Hyman.

In John Hyman's will written 1793 he mentions grandson Joel Hyman and Joel's mother, Elizabeth Hyman. If this Elizabeth Hyman mentioned as Joel's mother is Elizabeth Sparkman, why did John Hyman not mention Elizabeth Sparkman Hyman's other children....Elizabeth, Sarah, and Hugh who were in William Sparkman's will?

Can anyone help me with this?
