Jared Ellison Groce, Surry County, NC

Jared Ellison Groce is said to have been born about 1740 in New Castle or vicinity, England. He migrated to America with one or more brothers and settled in what is now Surry County, NC about 1760. I don't know the names of the brothers, but I think most of the Groce families of NC must be related.

Jared married Sarah Sheppard in 1767. She was the daughter of James and Lucy Sheppard. They moved to Halifax County, VA before 1774. Deeds in Halifax County in 1774 show the name Jared Gross. Deeds after 1774 show the spelling as Groce. In 1787 the family migrated to Lincoln County, GA. I have the descendants of Jared and other interesting information about these descendants.
