I found some information on Rebecca Smith daughter of Bartlett Smith which might help you, but I am interested in information on John NUNN. I am a NUNN researcher and interested in how John NUNN fits into the Smith family. I have a Moses Smith in VA who married Biddy Alexander
I also have a Fanny Smith who married John Strange in Campbell County VA in 1747 her parents are John and Anne Smith.
But my most interest is John NUNN, a date of birth or parents.
Below is what I found on Rebecca Smith.
ELIJAH7 JESSUP (JOSEPH6, THOMAS5, THOMAS4, TIMOTHY3, THOMAS2, WILLIAM SONAIR AKA1)152 was born March 31, 1781 in Guilford Co., NC152, and died Unknown in Westfield, Stokes Co., NC153. He married (1) REBECCA SMITH154 December 15, 1801 in Patrick Co., VA154, daughter of BARTLETT SMITH. She was born Bef. 1781155, and died Unknown. He married (2) NANCY SMITH156 April 18, 1816 in Surry Co., NC156, daughter of BARTLETT SMITH. She was born Abt. 1798157, and died Unknown.

Elijah Jessup moved with his father and mother to Surry Co., NC about 1786. He lived many years in the home occupied in recent times by Reid Christian in Westfield, NC (across the county line in Stokes Co., NC.) Elijah married sisters, daughter of Bartlett Smith who lived at the top of the mountain in the Bell Spur section of Patrick Co., VA, where he owned a large property. Elijah's brother Eli, married Pensey Jennie Smith, sister to Nancy and Rebecca.
This inforumation can be found in familytreemaker pages under Descendants of William Sonair AKA Jessup.
I hope this helps.
