Koonce Family of Jones County, NC 1815
Posted by: Janice Thurmond (ID *****0857) Date: January 30, 2013 at 09:07:18
  of 608

In researching the family of Zenos Swilley, who died in Jones County between 1813 and 1815, I have found a document, dated 5 February 1815, which shows a person, whose name appears to have been APPLE KOONCE....this "Apple Koonce" drew a lot of land in the distribution of Zenos Swilley's estate.

Swilley had a daughter, Lydia Swilley, who was married to Jacob Koonce - Lydia Koonce drew a lot of land in her own right.

Who was "Apple Koonce"? Was he a guardian for one of Swilley's minor children? If so, what was the name of the child?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
