States: North Carolina: Wilkes
My paternal 2 x great-grandfather was David Land of Wilkes County,NC. He was the youngest child of James Land & Edith Livingston. A grandson of Jonathan Land & Elizabeth Isbell. A great-grandson of Thomas Land & Anna Sumter. He was born about 1825 and died after June 1901 at which time he applied to the State Of North Carolina for a Confederate Pension he never received,having only completed two pages. His first wife was REBECCA KNIGHT. Can anyone assist me in proving she was a daughter of THOMAS KNIGHT & LUCINDA STANTON of Wilkes County ?
The Knight,Land,& Livingston families intermarried I believe on several occasions. I believe each time the Knights were children of Thomas & Lucinda. David married a second time to Sarah Minerva Kerley Reid on Dec.22,1874. I do know she was a daughter of Daniel W. Kerley and Hannah Barnes and a Civil War Widow of Confederate James Samuel Reid. I've researched my Wilkes County Roots for 20-25 years and would be glad to share information on any of these families.
