I came from Lauderdale County, Tennessee where Micajah and James Cary settled. I still have land that they bought. I know about Joseph Braddy but not the Braddy Bible. I also have a copy of the Tennessee history that has the Lauderdale history with the information about Micajah, etc. Where I am stuck is Micajah's father. I think his name is James, but there are several James' that it could be. I think the answer is in the land deeds.
There were two original Cavalier land grants made to (I am away from my home and can't remember whether it was John or Samuel) in 1770 (about) One was for 700 acres and the other for 690. I thought they were the same until I was in the North Carolina archives and they brought me the original documents. The only recognizable reference point (not a sweet gum or a red oak) was Fishing Creek.
One summer we went to Fishing Creek and followed the creek as close as we could get by road. We stopped at a country store and I asked if there were any Alsobrooks who lived near there. "Well said the man behind the counter, the next house down this road".
I went to the house and the owner sent me to his sister who was also researching the family, had a copier, and we two copied each other's material for a couple of hours. Great fun.
All that stuff is at home.
