Diane,
Francis Voisin was a planter in Anne Arundel couinty Maryland. Marriage license for him and Mary Meares issued in 1699. He had a son Abraham born 1-12-1702/3 in Maryland. He had a son also named Abraham in Maryland. He had a son named Francis who moved to South Carolina and married Sallie Wheat. All except the first Abraham Voisin used their new name neighbors, which over time became Nabors, Nabers, or Neighbors. It was all the same family.
I am trying to find out how Francis Voisin got to America, but cannot locate his name in istg records. He was a French Hugenot and may have come through Ireland, England, or ? Any ideas?
John Nabers
