Thanks, John. I wish I could help you out with your
Abernathy's, but there are none in my Tapley records
at all. Lucy Pryor's husband Hosea died 21 Mar 1770 in
Orange County, North Carolina and she married her
brother-in-law, John Womack in 1771. The family moved
to Georgia and Womack records (along with the land in
North Carolina owned by Tapley and Womack) are well
I am a direct descendant of Joseph David Tapley.
The Rogers/McFarland/Cleaver records can be found in
northeastern Missouri along with Tapley descendants.
The information about the Indian massacre is oral
history passed down in the family. I have never
There are also land records in Granville, North
Carolina (about the 1750s) of Hosea Tapley's land.
I am unaware of specific records in Brunswick,
Virginia. We have only the early records about Surry
County And Gloucester, mostly from the Pryor family.
I do have this note from an online source yesterday:
"Hosea TAPLEY is from the same TAPLEY family that
intermaried with William POOLE of Brunswick, and left
a will in Mecklenburg County, VA, 1777" -- I would
like very much to see the will. I don't know the Poole
family. Are they yours?
It was important to keep the name alive and there are
many generations of Hosea's, John's, Green's and
combinations of the three names.
