I was just looking at old post and ran across yours. My great grandmother's second husband was a David Pope. Her first husband was my great grandfather. He died and my ggrandmother married David Pope in Corsicana Texas. To make a long story short, she never would talk about my great grandfather's family and we also know nothing about David Pope. My father remembered him well but said "family" was never talked about. There are no pictures of ggranny with step ggrandfather, no documents , no nothing. I went to the court house in Corsicana to get a copy of her marriage license . I am trying to find my David Pope's family to find out what they might know about him and my ggranny. I did find him on the census' and sometimes he was born in Ill. and sometimes Missouri. His parents were listed as from Ill. Also I found one census where the name was spelled Pape. Are you related to any Ill. Popes?
Tony, I just joined this site & found Worrell in your list of names. I am interested in Amos Worrell, who died in Halifax Co., NC sometime between 1838 & 1842. He married a widow named Elizabeth Bruce before 1798. His children were Elizabeth, John, Amos, Sarah & Dolly. Elizabeth married my ancestor Thomas Jordan Holland (b. 1811 in Halifax Co., NC) & died sometime before 1844, when he remarried. Her father Amos references her in his will as Elizabeth Holland. I haven't been able to trace Amos's birth or parents, & they could have lived in VA or in the same area of NC when it was still part of VA. Do you have any knowledge of these Worrells?
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
