Samuel Winstead Piney Woods Nash County
Posted by: Guy Baker (ID *****2524) Date: November 15, 2006 at 23:16:28

Does anyone know who Samuel Winstead, whose lands fell to the children of Joseph Winstead, was and has anyone looked at the original records cited below? Who was the “Samuel Winstead Piney Woods” in Nash County named for?

We are descended from both Nancy Winstead Cockrell and Susannah Winstead Vick.

Thank you for any help.

Guy
