Hello John, It's me again, Diana, I replied to your posting a few years back and by the way thank you agian for the data on James B. and Mary's children. Now I have stumbled across another ESLICK posting quite by accident that just doesn't quite fit somehow..I am pasting it below, can you help me out, I don't believe this is quite right!
Need help with a world connect project posting...I found the follownig on a posting on the above site....
Seletha Jenny George
born 1740 d abt 1830
father Richard George (No dates given)
married 30 Apr 1810 Wilson County, TN
Isaac B. Eslick
b. 1780 Carteret County, NC
8 children...
Girl Eslick b. between 1810-1815
William Eslick b. between 1810-1815
James B. Eslick b. 1815 (this is my true interest)
Child Eslick b. between 1815-1820
Sarah Saletha Eslick b. abt 1822
Isaac H. Eslick b. 1822
Thomas Austin Eslick b. 1828
Rhoda Eslick b. 1830

If I did my math correctly, something doesn't quite add up here...This Seletha Jenny George b. 1740? would have been 70 years old when she married on the 30 Apr 1810 one Isaac B. Eslick b. 1780. This could be true, BUT they had 8 children, first born between 1810-1815..the 3rd child born James B. Eslick, is my interest...he was born 1815, making his mother 75 at birth and the last child listed being born was born 1830 making her mother 90 years old at her birth? Could there be an error in her birth year??? If you have her true birth year please contact me.
