Information is so scarce for Pinions in western North Carolina; can you help at all? My relative Sarah Frady married James Pinion April 9, 1882, in Jackson County, North Carolina.

James and Sarah had at least one son, Tallie Pinion, born July 5, 1884 in Webster Twp., Jackson Co., NC, according to delayed birth registrations. Tallie and his wife Laura (don't know maiden name) appeared in the 1910 and 1920 census records with these children:

Alonzo Pinion born abt.1906
Sara Lue Pinion born abt.1910
Fred Pinion born abt.1913
Earnest Pinion born abt.1915
Elsie Pinion born abt.1917

Tallie appeared again with a different wife--Fannie/Frannie in the 1930 Jackson Co., NC, census.

Sarah may be the one buried at Stillwell Cemetery, Webster Twp., Jackson Co., NC: Sarah Pinion b.17 Sept. 1866 d.2 Jun 1894 according to the Jackson County Cemeteries book. I don't know how accurate the information is, nor whether the unmarked grave beside Sarah may be her spouse James. Or did James and another wife leave Jackson County for greener pastures elsewhere? No death records have been found yet for Talie nor any wife or children.

Can there be any connection to your James Pinion? I have seen the name spelled in these various ways: Pinyan, Pinyon, Penyon, but most often "Pinion".
