Barbara, this one is the most specific reference I have thus far seen that Thomas
Poythress and family
originated in Dinwiddie, moved to Brunswick and subsequently to Mecklenburg. Lewis'
Dinwiddie is strong evidence to that effect. I always say "moved" with some
were sprouting so quickly in that era there is always the chance the person stayed in one
place and the
ground underneath him changed its name.
I have worked the 'net about to death trying to find Thomas' parents. I think
likely cinch his
connection to immigrant Francis. I doubt there is more than one generation or at the
Thomas and Francis and if Batte's assumption is correct that will go through Francis,
is a hard road to travel.
Is that likely our line of thinking now or does anyone have another idea?
