Again, thanks so much for this reply and the detail! The children I have for Frederick and Mary are Martha Angelina (b. 1826 and married into the Buckelew family), Few (b 1834), Julius (b 1835, from whom I'm descended), and Emna (or Emma? b. 1837). I didn't know about the other two, earlier daughters of Frederick and Mary. My records show that Frederick and Mary were married on July 18 in 1821 in Greene Co., Georgia. I have information about Martha Angelina from the McGuir family tree which includes a letter from Mary to Martha in 1851, after the latter had left for New Orleans with Moses Buckelew. There is no mention of Frederick in this letter, and Mary has already married John Spencer.
I have several photos of Julius and Cornelia Bell Norsworthy, his daughter, if you are interested. I'd be happy to give you access to my family tree, online at ancestry, if you'd like to see it and the Norsworthy info I have there. Let me know if you are interested.
My grandmother, who was a granddaughter of Julius, gave me a bowl that she said had been carved by Julius on their plantation, prior to the Civil War. She said that they sold their plantation before the war and moved west, into Texas, to Jefferson, and then on to Hunt Co. Texas. I've not been able to find any evidence of a plantation - my grandmother had only mentioned Georgia, and made no mention of Alabama when she told me about her family. She also said that Julius had married a woman named Molly O'Hamil, who was somehow associated with the Bell family. However, I can find no evidence of this Molly. Instead, it appears that Julius' wife is "Sarah L." in the 1870 Federal Census.
The book "A History of Methodism in Alabama" by Anson West (1893) goes into some detail about Frederic P. Norsworthy, as I mention in my original post in this strand. You can find the book with a Google search on " "Frederic P Norsworthy" methodist".
Thanks again, Roberta
