SEGRAVES William, Burrel, Parthena sons and dau. of John/Martha Patsey.
Posted by: Carey Seagraves (ID *****0325) Date: April 06, 2003 at 16:29:20
  of 1372

Does anyother researcher notice that research has shown John and Martha/Patsy of Wake Co. NC having children as being three unknowns, Burrel b. 1784, William b. 1786 and Parthena b. ?
and on the 1830 Madison Co. GA Census it shows Patsey being between 70-80 yrs. Having one white female aged 20-30 yrs. Now assuming this is Parthena...this would mean she was born between 1800-1810 right? Making Patsy 50-60 at her birth. SO.... Who is Parthena, who is her parents? Is she a grandchild? Does anyone have records of the Census in Wake and Anson prior to Madison? I dont have actual page records, only the index showing household, etc.
Notes on John:

Census: 1790 Wake Co, North Carolina
Census: 1800 Anson Co, North Carolina
Census: 1810 Anson Co, North Carolina
Census: 1820 Anson Co, North Carolina
Reference Number: 7498

CAROLINA OBSERVER

Found at the North Carolina State Archives, Raleigh NC

lists a John Seagraves with 150 acres with the location as Cribs do
directly under his name is William Seagraves with 250 and location as do do???

However I have often wondered about this information:
from my notes on William:

Census: 1820 Wake Co, North Carolina
Census: 1830 Madison Co, Georgia
Census: 1840 Madison Co, Georgia
Census: 1850 Madison Co, Georgia
Residence: 1832 Madison Co, Georgia

Cemetery records indicate "probable" for burial location and dates

In the 1830 Census of Madison Co GA it lists both William Segraves and Patsy Seagraves as heads of households. Williams household had the following:
3 white males to 5 yrs
3 white males 5 to 10 yrs
2 white males 20-30
1 white male 50-60
1 white female 10-15
1 white female 30-40
2 male slaves to 10 yrs
2 female slaves to 10 yrs
2 female slaves 24-36

Please note that there are only three Seagraves on Petition, William Seagraves, Burrel Seagraves, and a one Wm Segraves, Senr. ???? I thought John and Martha/Patsey were William and Burrels parents...so who is this Wm Segraves, Senr??? Does anyone know if I am getting closer to figuring the connection to VA? PLEASE HELP (I only selected the columns with those names, there are too many other names to list, but these are the only segraves/seagraves)
