Hi Bill,
I just ran across the Twiner surname in 1790 Caswell Co NC census -- an Abram and Joseph were living there. I wonder if their surname was Turner, rather than Twiner (census takers hand writing), because of my Joseph Turner and his son Abraham Rogers Turner, who (AR) married in Caswell Co in 1784. Any thoughts on this? Also, I have a Callahan/Callihan line out of Rockingham Co NC who are also said to be Cherokee. They're from Darby and Unity [Harris] Callahan family, through son Edward md Susannah Brock, and their son Isaac and unknown wife. Isaac was my 3rd gr grandfather. My line of Callahans went to Clay Co KY by 1803 (area was Madison Co at the time). Do you see any connections? Thanks.
