My maternal grandfather was George Winter Futch of Pender County, NC--his house was just outside Burgaw city limits. He was born in February of 1896 and died around 1962, when I was a child.
I know that his father was James Jacob Futch of Pender County and his mother was Marguerite Davis Boney (also of Pender County).
James Jacob Futch was the son of Margaret Elizabeth Futch, who later married Thomas J. Rivenbark and had several children by him. However, Margaret Elizabeth (Maggie) Futch was unmarried at the time her son James Jacob Futch was born, and I don't know who his father was. (She refused to tell!!)
I know that Maggie Futch Rivenbark was the daughter of Jacob Futch (not the original Futch immigrant!) and Elizabeth (Betsy) Browning of Pender (then New Hanover) County.
After Maggie's father Jacob, I am stuck. I have no idea who his parents were. Certainly they belonged to the family of the original settler, Jacob Futch, and his wife Margaretha(sp?) but I cannot tie them together.
I have tried researching the Futch family, but most of the research seems to have been done by Futch families who soon left North Carolina for Georgia and Florida and other states. I do know that my Futch line never left North Carolina or the New Hanover/Pender County area.
