I have Mahn, Bloodworth, Bordeaux, and particularly looking for Armstrong information. My information was that they came to Duplin County, but settled in the Pender County area and there was an Armstrong Plantation for awhile.

Petit (can be spelled many ways), Mills, and Smith. Specific information I have is Gideon Petit born 1768. Jemima Mills born 1760 and married Gideon. Jacob Smith born 1797 and married Gideon and Jemima's daughter, Nancy Petit.  Nancy born 1798. 

Hi. Thanks for the add. I'm looking to break my brick wall with my oldest Ellis ancestor. His name was John Ellis. Several sources indicate he was born in North Carolina (specifically the Pitt/Dobbs area) about 1770-73 and died in Telfair County, Georgia about 1842. He migrated with an unknown wife and two small children, William (1797 NC-1867 Coffee County, GA) and Minta (1801 SC-aft 1800 Telfair County, GA). After his first wife's death, he married Jerusa (many say Roundtree--never proven) who was born in NC but whose family had moved to Emanuel County, GA by about the same time. They had five children together: Hiram (1810-1877); John Jr. (1812-1856); Henry (1816-1893); Jerusha (1819-1885); and Mary Ann Jincy (1823-1895). I only have records for John once he reached Montgomery and Emanuel Counties, before finally settling in Telfair County, GA. If any of the names sound familiar, please let me know. Surely one of those boys was named after John's father.

Hi Sara,

I am looking for information regarding the Gatlin and Purifoy families.  John NMI Purifoy is my 3rd GGF.  I believe that he is the son of Nicholas Purifoy II the son of Rev. Nicholas Purifoy.  Everyone thinks that Thomas Purifoy Sr was his father but I believe that Thomas was his older brother.  Also any information on Nicholas II's wife, I believe to be a Mary Gatlin.
