Seeking information about the ancestors of John O'Neal
born about 1769 in NC, married Sarah Carruthers 2 April
1805 in Orange County, NC, died in the 1820's probably
in Grayson County, VA. Children of John and Sarah are
1) Alfred O'Neal born about 1806 in NC, married Francis
Branscome 4 June 1829 in Grayson County, VA.
2) Stanford H. O'Neal born about 1808 in NC. Mother
Sarah lived out her life with him in Grayson County,
VA, according to census information.
3) Elizabeth O'Neal born about 1815 in NC, married
Madison Johnson 16 September 1833 in Grayson
County, VA.
4) James C. O'Neal born about 1821 in NC, married
Penina Bolen 1844 in Carroll County (formed from
eastern Grayson County), VA. They moved to Fayette
County, VA (now WV) in the early 1850's. James C.
was killed in the Civil War.

James C. and Penina Bolen O'Neal are my great-great-
grandparents. I descend through their daughter Rebecca
E. O'Neal who married James Saterwhite Davis in WV; then
through James Saterwhite and Rebecca E. O'Neal Davis's
daughter Rachel Davis who married John B. Spangler in

Any help with the O'Neal's will be greatly appreciated!
