In Reply to: Standifer / Epperson by Joy Smith of 291

Joy,
I've been doing genealogy research for about 6 years now and still get shocked at all of the cooincedences when researching these families! I noticed your post on the Standifers and Eppersons . . . you might want to add the Munseys to that list as well. These three families must have known each other well because there are several of them that are intermarried. I'm going to copy and paste my data here so you can see what I have in my database.
I do know that Young Epperson was actually an APPERSON. His grandfather, Francis Epperson changed the last names of all of his children to APPERSON when they were born. He kept his name of Epperson but changed the children's last names to Apperson. Francis' son, Gabriel APPERSON was the father of Young APPERSON. I don't know why he did this but I have a feeling that it was because his family came from France and were Huguenots that the French were looking for back then. Bernard Nogaret De La Valette, the 2nd Duke of Epernon was the great grandfather of Francis Epperson. Bernard had to flee France and ended up in Wales where he married a Welch woman. He changed his son's last name to Epperson - a variation of Epernon to honor his father, Jean Louis Nogaret De La Valette, the first Duke of Epernon and favorite Duke of King Henry III.

Here's what I have:
