Dear Ms. Grills,

Your message caught my eye because of the mention of an Irvin in it, then I did a message look up and saw you had mentioned Carrigans and DeWeeses in other messages you had posted. What can you tell me about these folks???

My 4th great grandparents on one line were Jonathan DeWeese (b. 1785, Caswell Co. NC, d. 1841, Mecklenburg Co. NC) and his wife Margaret Boyd Irvin. All I know about her is that they were married on 1 Nov. 1810 in Mecklenburg County.

Their daughter Mary Amanda DeWeese (1824-1851) married William H. Wilkerson on 10 June 1841, in Mecklenburg County, NC. They were living in McDowell County, NC in 1850. Their daughter Mary Adeline Wilkerson (1846-1905), married John Andrew Field (1846-1883). They are both buried at the Coddle Creek Church on the border between Iredell and Cabarrus Counties. Their son Ernest Marion Field (1866-1904) married Mary Rhetta Bell (1862-1947). They were the parents of my grandfather, John Levi Field (1902-1963).

Now, to backtrack in another direction. Mary Rhetta Bell was the daughter of Levi Bell (1812-1893) and his second wife Mary Jane Van Pelt (1831-1905). Up until just recently, I knew nothing about the Van Pelt family, but I just got a great deal of information on them. I do not have it sorted out yet to where I can easily access it, but I do recall that there were Carrigans in that line who were early members of the Coddle Creek Church.

I would love to compare notes with you as it sounds like we are related in several different directions. I have never had any luck in finding out anything about the Irvin family.

Best Regards,
