Parker, Levi family's of Northampton and Pitt area
Posted by: Stan Handshy (ID *****8347) Date: February 26, 2010 at 08:18:37
  of 799

Henry Levi (born abt 1760), his children and the children of Alexander Levi(born about 1739) made it to the Davison County, Tennessee area before they branched out more. I am hoping someone has family records or possibly even church records that could help.
Alexander and Henry Levi are in the 1790 Pitt census. Alexander is in the 1762 'early North Carolina' census in Northampton. Family trees have Alexander married to Rebecca Parker (born abt 1739)(part of the prominent Parker ministerial family of colonial days). The marriage was likely around 1759 as that was when Alexander's father in law, Thomas Parker gave Alexander 100 acres as a gift in the Northampton county area. Both Alexander and Henry's children migrated to the Davidson, Tennessee area and spread out from there. Henry Levi made it on to Sangamon, Illinois in 1830. The children of Henry and Alexander are mixed---at least for me. And Henry and Alexander are clearly closely related (on same 1790 census, and witness deeds for each other). The problem is that I can't clearly decipher if Alexander is the older brother or the father of Henry; and I'd love to clarify whose children are whose. I suspect the answer lies in some early church records in Northhampton, North Carolina and also in the Pitt, North Carolina areas----but I am unclear how to find these. With their ministerial ties, it is highly likely that family records exist somewhere in the early church documents. From Davidson County, Tennessee, some went to Texas (Brenham area), some stayed, some went on to Illinois, Missouri, and Iowa, and some went to Arizona eventually. Several people have been gracious on helping so far and many things are firming up. I have a tree---Stan Handshy family tree on ancestry.com Any help with this will be appreciated.
