I am researching the Stephen Crump, Jr/James Davis Families of Stanly County, NC. In particular Elizabeth Jane Davis (daughter of James Davis and Rowena (last name unknown) who married Stephen Crump, Jr., in Stanly County. He was the son of Stephen Crump Sr, and (Easley?) Eliza Jane and Stephen, Jr. had a daughter – Charlotte Saphrona – born in 1850. After Stephen died (about 1857/58) Eliza Jane married Ephraim Mauney of Rowan County.
Please note that I am not a descendant of either three families. I have done a vast amount of research, and recently came upon the resting place of Eliza Jane; however, I am unable to find her daughter, Charlotte.
Several facts are known about Charlotte: (1) she was listed in the 1870 census as a schoolteacher in Rowan Co.; (2) she married James Varker (of Davidson County) in 1872; and (3) there is no mention of her after their appearance in Rowan County in the 1880 census – according to which, they had no children.
In 1888, James Varker was over in Franklin County, NC, but with another wife and small baby. There has been no further mention of Charlotte – either by death or divorce - since 1880.
James Varker was to later become my grandfather.
I am seeking any resource which might lead me to finding Charlotte, since she was my grandfather’s first wife.
