Looking for parents of Tobias Safrit (1833-1864). Tobias married Julia Ann Blackwelder in Cabarrus Co. NC in 1856. He served with Co. H, 8th NC Regt and was kia at Plymouth, NC in 1864.
In 1860 Tobias and Julia Ann were residing in household
#602 in Cabarrus Co. Subdivision east of RR (Mt. Pleasant PO). Residing in household #601 was William W. Safrit, age 30, and his wife, Margaret C. (Faggart). In household
#603 was Sophia Safrit, age 50, an apparent widow with two children, John, age 24, and Etty, age 20.
I cannot locate Tobias or Sophia in the 1850 census, but William was residing with George Quillman in household
#803,and was an apprentice Millwright.
William's wife to be, Margaret Faggart, was residing with her parents, Jacob and Leah Faggart, in household #806, and Tobias' wife to be, Julia Ann Blackwelder, was residing with her parents, Jacob and Sarah Blackwelder, in household #809.
Some info states that Tobias was the son of Charles Safrit and Sophia Cress, but I can find no info on this couple.
Any help will be be appreciated.
