Subject: "Unknown Sprafkin'

I did a Lycos search for the name "Sprafkin" and came across the Carne,Har rison and Related Families website and found a reference to "Unknown Spraf kin." Since ours is an unusual family name, and all of the sprafkins of wh om I am aware seem to be related (there aren't many), I wondered if you we re aware of the reference in the geneology. Robert P. Sprafkin, Ph.D.

Hello Robert,

The "Unknown Sprafkin" is listed as born July 23, 1941, roughly my ag e, and married to Barbara June Cooper. You? I obtained the information fr om Tony Woodrough who is also related to the Harrison family. Accordi ng to his information, Barbara June Cooper is the grand daughter of Cora E stelle Harrison via her mother, Hazel Brewer. Cora Estelle Harrison was t he daughter of George Amos Harrison, the son of Zachariah Grant Harriso n, son of Baker H. Harrison who was my 3rd great-grandfather. WHEW! You c an trace it back up from Hazel Brewer at Genealogy/family/d0000/g0000039.html#I0280 and wander around to your heart 's content. Later family members were not known to be deceased, and hen ce have no details listed which would allow you to search.

It is amazing that the search engine "spiders" have found those genealo gy listings, and more and more people looking for themselves or their fami ly are coming across them. I have had several inquiries such as yours, a nd discovered a few distant cousins that way! Google seems to have me we ll indexed these days whether I like it or not. I've never made an effo rt to make those pages known to anyone other than family and friends who a re interested in genealogy, but they are available to anyone searching.

[NI3799] Tully (7) Robinson. B. 1780-1784, probably in Princess Anne County, V A, It is
believed he was born after the 1782 Princess Anne tax list which listed ol der
brothers Charles and William (7) as only sons in William (6)household.
Between 1782 and 1790, migrated with parents to Currituck County, N.C., an d
later to Rowan County, NC. Counted as one of two male family members under
age 16 in William (6) family in 1790 U S. census. Named in father's will o f
1798 /99.

Married Elizabeth Cowell in 1802. Before Feb. 12, 1804 the family
may have had several children, but no name or birth dates have been found.
On that date Jefferson (8) Robinson was born, probably in Currituck County .
According to research by Ola Mae Robinson a second son, William C. Robinso n,
was born to Tully (7) and Elizabeth on 12 May 1818, and a third son, Tully
(8), infant, is named in Rowan County court records dated from 1821 and 18 29.
Tully 7 is believed to have been the ..Tully Robertson.. listed in the 18 20 U.S.
census of Currituck County. Soon after the census was taken, Tully died.
Elizabeth's second marriage to Pete Twomey is dated in family bibles as 18 21.
AKL places Tully (7)'s death after the 1820 census was taken. Ola Mae
Robinson's research includes an entry in Rowan County court minutes th at on 20
August 1821 the court ordered that Charles Anderson, Esq., Daniel Rushing,
Warner Brown, and Loarlot Glascock "act as a committee to lay up one year' s
provision for the widow and family of Tally Robinson." Thiswould make Tull y
7's death before 20 August 1821.
On the same date (20 Aug 1821) the court ordered that "the sheriff to summ on
a jury of good and lawfulmen to lay up by mites and bounds the ownership o f
Betsy Toomy in the lands of her late husband Tally Robinson. "Under
Administrations of Estates, August 1821, the Rowan County Court Minutes re port

On 3 February 1829 the Rowan County Court Minutes record that Jefferson
Robinson was appointed Guardian of Tully Robinson. By that date Jefferson
Robinson would be 25 years of age.
The above court orders and minutes tell us that: (1) By 20 August 1821, wi dow
Elizabeth Robinson had become the wife of Patrick Toomy (Twomey.) (2) Th at a

1834 Letter from Elizabeth Barnard Love
to her sister

Printed below is a June 19, 1835 letter from Elizabeth Barnard Love to h er sister Peggy Young in Burnsville, Yancey County, North Carolina. It w as provided by Belinda Bettis of Hayesville, North Carolina, a Barnard res earcher. Barnard is commonly misspelled "Barnett." Luke Barnard came in to Rabun County while Cherokees were still there. He arrived at a date whi ch appears to be before the date of the arrival of the Dillards (see Jo hn T. Coleman's article above) and had daughters, Sally Barnard (the wi fe of James Dillard), Elizabeth Barnard (wife of Thomas Love), Nancy Barna rd (wife of Doctor Carnes), Margaret (“Peggy") Barnard (wife of Josh ua P. Young), and sons John Barnard (mentioned in John T. Coleman's artic le above as "John Barnett"), Andrew Barnard, and possibly Joseph Barnard.

Thomas Love, the husband of Elizabeth Barnard Love, was a son of Thomas Lo ve and Martha Dillard Love. Martha Dillard Love was a daughter of Thomas D illard, Jr. of Pittsylvania County, Virginia who moved to and died in Wash ington County, North Carolina later Tennessee. This letter gives us a glim pe of how and to what extent our early migrating ancestors kept up with ea ch other (and they did have letters and a post office!), and their pa in in leaving and not hearing from loved ones left behind..

Dear Sister:

After an absence of nearly two years I avail myself of the present opportu nity of writing you a few lines to let you know I am still in the la nd of the living though many miles from the land of my youthful pleasure b ut I think I am placed in a situation far superior to many things I cou ld have promised myself in that country. I have nothing very particul ar to write there has been so much said already about this country th at I think it would ---- to say any more. Our family are all well and a ll the rest of the friends in this country. Hoping these few lines may fi nd all enjoying the same blessings. Brother John and the doctor are very w ell pleased with their move to this country. John was married on the 20 th of May to Miss Eleander Sisson and I think there is no doubt but she wi ll make him a good wife and an agreeable companion. Mr. Love has purchas ed land in this country 6 miles from Parris. I feel entirely satisfied a nd think we are settled for life. I have understood that father and moth er intends visiting you this summer. I feel for you my dear Sister for I k now there is no person but one who have parted with a dear old father a nd mother thinking it to be the last time they are ever to see them that c an conceive what I felt when I left mine for I had no idea I ever should s ee them any more in this life but I now have the pleasing prospect of meet ing with them again if we should all be spared a few months longer. I wro te to you shortly after our arrival in this country and have been anxious ly expecting a letter from you ever since but I have not received the fir st line from none of my relatives since I left that country only from my t wo brothers. I think I must complain of you and Sally Dillard for it see ms as though you have forgotten that you have a sister by the name of Lov e. We have never enjoyed better health in our family in our lives th an we have since we came to this country. I expect to be confin ed by 20 of September. We have had a very wet season and the prospec ts of crops are not so good at this time. We all join in love to you and a ll your family and all inquiring friends. So no more but remains your affe ctionate sister.

Dear Sister
I once more take my pen in hand to write to you to let you know we a re
all well at present hoping these lines may find you all enjoying the sa
blessing I have no news of importance I must confess I feel some what
ashamed of not writing to you before allthough I think I can with justi
complain of your not writing to me since I saw you I have had three
daughters Dorcas, Dicia and Lettishia they are all fine little girls Letti shia
is five months old I expect you have no doubt heard of the death of our
little Polly it will be three years this fall since she died it was a seve re
trial to give her up but oh Sister, if I could have her back for asking f or
worlds I would not ask it if I had of died at her age how much sin and
hardship would I have escaped you will probably be surprised when I tell y ou
we are making preparations to leave Tennessee we are going to move to Miss ouri
between four and five hundred miles from where we now live.
Mr. Love has been and looked at the country he likes the appearance of
the country much better than he ever did this country the land is very ri ch
and fertile but scarce of timber in places the water is plenty and very go od
but limestone he is going to settle on the Ozark Mountain he says the
range is as good as it ever was in Buncombe He was at William Dillards
he has been living in that country four years and is very well pleas
says he believes it to be equally as healthy as Buncombe is at this time
Mr. Love sold his land here for thirty six hundred dollars he says for ha lf
the money he can settle himself much more to his notion in Missouri and
be where his children can settle to advantage you may think strange of
my being willing to go so far from all my connection but I am very willi ng
to go as I hope it will be to the advantage and satisfaction of my own
amily but it would far exceed the bounds of a letter to say all I would wi sh
to say I must therefore conclude after begging of you not to forget me
when I am allmost a thousand miles from you do write to me as soon as
you receive this letter if you should not receive it in time to gi ve me an
answer by the middle of October write to Missouri Green County Springfie ld
Mr. Love joins me in sending our best love and respects to you and Josh
in particular give my love to all the children and all inquiring friends
I am my Dear Sister
Yours most affectionately

She kept her sences to the last. I wean ed my baby and am suckling hers. Its a very pretty healthy child. She na med it her self. She called it Mary Elizabeth.

The rest of our family is all well. I have had 5 children since I saw y ou 4 daughters and one son, Dorcas, Diannah, Letitia, Thomas and Elle n. My youngest is about 16 months old.

Margaret was married a year ago. She has a fine daughter about a month ol d. She married a Tennsyeean by the name of Burnnett. They live abo ut 15 miles from us. She calls her baby Martha. We have a good country n otwithstanding our misfortune. I am entirely satisfied to live her e. We have a beautiful farm. Mr. Love raised between 3 and 4 thousand bu shels of corn last season, something over 3 hundred bushels wheat and a la rge crop of oats.

I feel so anxious to hear from you all its renders me very unhappy at tim es but I am compelled to think as little as possible about my own connecti on as it appears they have allmost all forgotten me. I have not receiv ed but two letters from any of my own connection. Since the death of o ur poor brother John, I own I have been a little neglectful about writi ng but I have written to that country so often and received no answer th at I am more excusable.

I do hope you will not fail to write to me as soon as you receive thi s. Do write all about all your own family and all the connection and frie nds. If old uncle and aunt McElroy is living do remember me to them. Te ll them I hope they have not forgotten me. Tell all our cousins I want th em to write to me and let me know all about their families. Now sist er do write as soon as you receive this letter and let me know all about y our family as I don’t know how many children you have or whether they a re all living with you or not.

I received a letter from sister Dillard a few weeks since. It gi ve me a great deal of satisfaction indeed. She stated she would have wro te before is she had known what P. O. to direct a letter to. If that is t he reason you don’t write I hope you will see from this letter direct to W right County, Mo. Hazelwood P. O.

Mr. Love had placed (?) himself that he could arrange his business so th at we would have been able to have went to North Carolina this spring b ut we have entirely abandoned the idea. I shall write to Father in a sho rt time. It has been almost three years since I received a line from hi m. I don’t know what can be the cause. I do believe I have an adversa ry in the family. I may be wrong but I do think I have good reason to bel ieve it but I know that if I have given any cause to be treated the w ay I have been I was ignorant of it but I submit to may fate as I know th is world is but a dream. Mr. Love joins me in love to you and Joshua a nd all the friends.

E lizabeth Love"

Tom's tombstone reads " 23 years 3 months 25 days "

Doubtful relationship - He appears to have been born 13 years before his p arents were married, when his mother was only 9 years old!
