I have a John Phifer, b. abt. 1780 in NC, d. abt. 1851 in TN. His first wife is unknown but probably also from NC. Their children were George, Peter, Elias, John Jr., Uriah, Delilah, 1 unknown male and 1 unknown female. At least some of these children were born in NC, others in KY and at least 1 in TN. Their birthdates range from 1803 to 1830. At some point, John Sr. ended up in Benton Co. TN and at least a couple of his chilren married and had families there. (My own interest is Peter, b. 1810, NC, who married Elizabeth Sayles.)
It's almost certain that this group of Phifers are related to those in Cabarrus and Mecklenburg Counties. Does anyone know the connection?
