Last night I received an email from a woman descended from an Annie McNair Dancy McCriddic. She has found from Annie’s death certificate that her father was named William McNair. William was born in North Carolina, and Annie was born specifically in Tarboro, Edgecombe County. Today I called her and we had a great conversation about her quest for learning more about this McNair family. She found my website and emailed me b/c of my McNair connections.
I’ve just spent some time going over the family structure and still haven’t found a conclusive relationship to my McNair line, but that does not mean there is not one. Annie moved from North Carolina and was living in Texas by 1900, where she is living with the family of Powell Battle. Powell was also from Edgecombe County and I believe associated with the same Battle plantation my own ancestors belonged to.
This will be fun to work with the researcher to try to figure this out.
