My online family tree site can be found at http://www.taneya-kalonji.com/family. Meanwhile, here is a summary of the surnames I am researching. Each surname has a link to the descendancy tree as I have completed it to date; of course, there are many incomplete branches.
- Baker – Daniel Baker (born approx. 1829) and wife Frances are 2nd great-grandparents. They had three kids that I know of. The family is from the Washington County, NC area. [View descendants]
- Boston – Lovey Boston (born approx. 1821) of Washington County is one of my 3rd great-grandmothers. I suspect she may have been related to the Boston family of Piney Woods, NC (Martin & Washington counties), based on one of my 23andMe matches. [View descendants]
- Bullock – Lawrence (b. approx. 1827) & Chanie Bullock (approx. 1835-1879) of Edgecombe County are 2nd great-grandparents. They had at least 9 kids that I am aware of. Their daughter Gracy, wife of Andrew D. McNair is my ancestor. [View descendants]
- Lennon - I have two Lennon lineages. The first is the family of Council (b. approx. 1839) & Elizabeth Abigail Lennon (b. approx. 1843) of Columbus County, NC. Council had about 8 children with Elizabeth. With his second wife, Jannie, he had at least 7 more children. [View descendants]
- Lennon – my second Lennon lineage is the family of Josh & Barbary Lennon (b. approx. 1820) of Columbus County, NC. Their son John Lennon, married the daughter of Council & Elizabeth, Etta. [View descendants]
- McNair – Rufus Tannahill McNair (1823-1910) and Mariah Wimberly (1843-1903) are my earliest known among this line. Rufus was likely a slave of Dr. Augustus Harvey McNair of Edgecombe County. Mariah was the daughter of Allen and Della (Battle) Wimberly. Della was a slave of Kemp Plummer Battle (former president of UNC) and Allen was likely the slave of Richard Wimberly. Mariah’s brother, Dred Wimberly, was the first black man to sit on the NC State Senate. The McNair family moved from Edgecombe to Washington County at the beginning of the 20th century.
