Pouncey Family Genealogy Forum
In the Pouncey family genealogy compiled by William Pouncey of Monroe, Ga., the following appears in chapter 9:
Maj. James Pouncey (Senior) married Ann Kolb, daughter of Col. Abel Kolb. This marriage probably took place between 1790 and 1795. Their children were William, James Jr., John A., Peter A.K., Sarah, Mary Ann, Eliza, Ann Jane, and Eleanor. He only male names to ever appear in the Marlboro County census records were William, James Jr., and Peter A.K., even though more is known of John A. Pouncey.
William married Sara Sparks and served as sheriff of Marlboro County from about 1826-1839. Numerous land sales are recorded for William, but they were all in his capacity as sheriff. He appears in the 1820 and 1830 census records for Marlboro County but is not listed in 1840. By comparing the 1820 and 1830 census records, it can be determined that he was between 36 and 39 years of age in 1830, which gives his year of birth between 1791 and 1794. In 1830, he and Sarah had two male children, one in the 5-9 age bracket and one in the 15-19 bracket. They also had one daughter, aged 10-14. Sarah was shown in the 30-39 category. William owned a total of 12 slaves in 1830. He was baptized at Salem Baptist Church on Dec. 6, 1829, along with his father. His mother, Ann, appeared as a member of this church as early as 1797.
