Charles Exum Joyner

Exum Joyner (d. 1833), father of Amos (Joiner) Joyner b. 1812 d. 1883,  I need a link to his Exum's father?

Try http://www.archive.org and enter search names and locations, making sure to select "Text" for your sources. My family settled south of Jamestown, Virginia in 1623 and Exum and Joyner are surnames I recall near 200 acres acres acquired in 1665 eat of Dismal Swamp

 

Charles Exum Joyner was my 4th Great grandfather (12 DNA matches). Through that connection, there is an unproven ? link to William Joyner (b 1730 Virginia; d 1800 Isle of Wight Co. Va).

On a side note, I just happened to be perusing the Dobbs 1790 tax list and noticed many Dismal surnames. I grew up near the Great Dismal Swamp and I always thought it referred to a dismal, spooky place. Never thought it was a surname!
