I have no information on the death of Comfort Hicks Norsworthy. Carolyn Rockwell reported that Frederick and Comfort had a third daughter Mary Jane, b.1816, d.1817.
I have evidence but no proof, that your Frederick P. Norsworthy was the Frederick named in the will of George Norsworthy (d 1802 in Hancock Co GA). There is a record of a Frederick Norsworthy, orphan of George Norsworthy, drawing land in the Hancock County Land Lottery of 1806. Frederick received his inheritance in 1814, presumably at age 21--so he was b. 1793.
I was wrong to state that Frederick died in 1850. Evidence: Your information on his estate from the Tallapoosa County Archives in 1843; also, my revisiting a record of Mary Norsworthy marrying Jeremiah A. Spencer on 4 Jul 1846 in Tallapoosa Co AL. The bride was WIDOW, not daughter, of Frederick.
Possibly Frederick had died by 1840, for I could not find him in the 1840 Census. His youngest surviving child, as shown in the 1850 Census, was born in 1838.
About a Methodist preacher named George Norsworthy: I have a single reference--to a BAPTIST minister named George Norsworthy in NC 1774-1791. It's in a book published by Robert P. Hamby, of Hendersonville, NC in 1982. This George worked in Bertie County, Sandy Run Church.
Frederick's three youngest daughters listed in the 1830 Census were by Mary Alford: One b. 1820-25, two b. 1825-30. Can you identify each of them? I'll try:
Certainly the middle daughter was Ann, marrying Buckelieu and shown in 1850 Census as 24 years old. POSSIBLY the eldest was a Nancy, b. ca 1822, marrying William Horton in Montgomery C. AL 21 Jul 1841 (In 1850 Horton's wife was 28, b GA 1822). Your comment?
Was the youngest daughter (b. 1827-30) the Martha Angelina whom you mentioned?
Best regards, Ray
