Sorry it took so long to reply -haven't been on computer for awhile.

Thanks for the BYU info - I had pieces of her work but not the whole manuscript.

No, I don't have any info on James L Foyle's arrival and/or his place of origin. I'm stuck at finding him buying land in 1717/18 in Chowan Co/Dist.

I also have not found evidence that the John Foil/Foyil in GA was a son of James L Foyle of Onslow Co. Have you? Have you found anything that shows the John Foyil/Foil in Burke Co/Jefferson Co/Morgan Co, GA was at anytime connected to Onslow Co, GA?

I have copies of court entries related to John Foyil's estate --some mentioning your line -his son William Foil, if you'd like copies.

My line comes off the other son of John Foyil-- Robert Foyil who had died before John Foyil wrote his will (thus leaving Robert Foyil's children his share). Your William Foil probably named his son Robert after his own deceased brother.

I've also found some strong evidence indicating who the two Peel son-in-laws are that were married to John Foyil's daughters. Still don't have the two women's first names though. If you're interested let me know.

Thanks again for the BYU -Foil info!!! Benita
