  of [an error occurred while processing this directive]

I'm looking for the parents of Ethelbert Andrew Faircloth,
(spelled "Thelbert" or "Thilbert A." or "Herbert"),
Born Dec. 1824 probably in Jefferson/Ashe County, N.C.,
Buried in Fees Ridge Cemetery, Rugby, Grayson Co., VA.,
Married about 1851 - Christina Hart born 1829 in Virginia,,
She died after 1906. (?) Christina's parents were
George Hart and Mary Polly Blevins.
George Hart's parents were James Hart, Jr. and
Catherine Dolly Sizemore.

Ethelbert served in Company B., 37th Regiment of N.C.
Infantry of the Confederate Army.

Thelbert moved to Grayson County, Virginia sometime in
the 1840s, then back to Ashe Co., N.C. and then back to
Grayson Co., VA.

Ethelbert was not in his parent's household in 1850, but
was single and working as a laborer in Grayson Co., VA.
on August 27, 1850 in the household of John Weaver.

1850 Grayson Federal census show Christina and her
sister Catherine Hart were working for household # 416
which was owned by William Young. Christina was
stated to be alive after 1906.

1860 Grayson County, VA. Federal census show Thelbert
and Christina, Monroe, Martha and John S. living in
household #111 in White Top, VA.
(There was 49 households in White Top at this time).

Thelbert Faircloth was White Top's postmaster from
August 14, 1859 to January 31, 1861.

In the 1870 Ashe County Federal census, Helton Township;
Household # 139 - Ethelbert - age 48 - blacksmith.
Wife - Christina - age 37
Children :
Samuel 16
Martha 15
John 14
Jane 11
Franklin 9
Leander 8
Hampton 3
infant 6/12 months
Also listed: Cicero Spencer age 5 born in Virginia.
(I don't know whos child Cicero Spencer was)

Thelbert was listed as Elbert and Cynthia in the 1880
Federal Census of Grayson Co.(western district),
house hold #204.

Thelbert and Christina had at least 11 children. Several
of Thelbert's children later moved to Kentucky where
they first settled in Casey County.

Any information on Ethelbert Andrew Faircloth and
Christina Hart would be appreciate. Especially
Ethelbert's parents and siblings. (My Brickwall)

Thank You,
Andrew Dennis Faircloth
