My GG-Grandfather, Elisha Jones (b: 1802), married Rebecca Marinda Payne in Davidson Co, NC, 1830. They lived in the Wallburg/Brushy Fork/Abbotts Creek area of Davidson Co, NC. My Jones and Paynes were initially Primitive Baptists, but changed to Methodist early 1800s. For latter they attended the Mount Vernon Methodist Church, just a couple of miles west of Wallburg, Davidson Co, NC.
Elisha's father, Benjamin Jones, was tied into the Veach family. He left a notation about the birthdate of a Zadok (aka: Zadowill) Veach in his family book. Other researchers have listed Zadoc Veach's mother as a Rachael Jones (she could be a sister of my ole Benjamin). My family have said that Elisha's mother was a Moore.
Also, the Davidson Co, NC, 1850 census lists Rachael Veach (b: c1778 MD) and Ruth Jones (b: c1775 MD)as living together. Nearby is Zadok Veach and his family.
In 1846 an A.B. Payne gave his interest in some land on Blankett Bottom (Creek? which is just outside of present day Clemmons, Forsythe Co, NC) which was owned by Stephen Payne to Elisha and Rebecca P. Jones.
For the 1850 census, A.B. Payne was living in Dallas Co, MO. In 1870, my Elisha and Rebecca Payne Jones moved to Dallas Co, MO.
I am seeking any help possible to help untangle the Jones, Moore, Veach, Payne, etc., connections.
