Actually that date and name are very good clues.

A Russum family group moved from Caroline Co. to Guilford Co., NC about that time. Despite a lot of digging by a lot of Russum researchers, no one has come up with who the father might have been. The children are pretty well known to be Vincent, John Price, Elizabeth, and possibly Wilson. They all appeared in NC about the same time, and are the right ages to have been brothers and sister.

Now, there is a strong suspicion that the mother's surname was Price. There were several Vincent Prices in Talbot/Caroline Co. between 1700 and 1750. One was probably the mother's father or grandfather. The name "Price" also appears as a given name in succeeding generations. Would you have anything on a marriage for a Thomas Russum and a lady named Price in about 1770?

Many thanks for the reply. Note my email address change.
