My 2nd G grandmother was Frances Gurganus(born 1842-1850) who married John Fleming at St. Paul's RC Church in New Bern, NC in 1870. She converted to Catholism that same year--a record of which gave her parent's names as Reuben "Gucanus" and Fanny Bland(I'm not sure about the name "Bland"--it is hard to read on my copy and I still need to confirm it). I have been searching for Frances' family for more than 10 years with little or no success.
I have been collecting documents that mention any Rueben Gurganus'(various spellings). I know of two or three that could be mine or yours or ours. Tonight I will compare the information you provided and the information in my files.
Could you please contact me by using my e-mail address (email@example.com)--your e-mail address was not availible on this site.
