  of 1882

I am Lookinf for information on James Roper who died in Anson NC in 1781. I am very interested in Charles Ray Mentioned in the account of his estate and how he might be related or connected. Was he married to one of the daughters? I think that James Roper and Charles Ray might both be form Edgecombe/Halifax NC.
