I am trying to connect with JONATHAN BROOKS UNDERWOOD family. We are BARTLETT YANCEY UNDERWOOD family - believe we are kin.

Jonathan Brooks married Nancy Brincefield July 16, 1860 in Caswell and raised his family there. His parents George and Nancy Underwood and siblings, Bartlett Yancey Underwood, Thomas Jefferson Underwood, and Margaret Underwood Gorrell had moved to Caswell in the late 1840s or early 1850. (Margaret had wed Ralph Washington Gorrell in 1849 in Guilford County).

Our Bart married Emma Medlin and moved to WAKE.

Jonathan and his wife Nancy stayed in Caswell and had four children:

Frances (a girl) 1861
William Thomas 1863-1956 married Minnie McCollum
Laura Lee 1866-1922 married James H Rice
Andrew Jefferson "Bud" Underwood 1869-1939 wed Cornelia Catherine Underwood, dau of Stephen and Selina Underwood

When Nancy died, Jonathan married Dinah Chatham. They married in Stony Creek Caswell Co on May 15, 1873.

Jonathan and Dinah had two children:

Calvin Underwood 1874
John Wessley Underwood 1876-1950 m. Murkedeese Apple on Nov 17, 1912 in Guilford County.

Jonathan Brooks Underwood was laid to rest in Camp Springs.

I am trying to determine who was Abel Underwood's parents. Also trying to find family who may have some record or recollection to help me get Bart's grave marked.

Jonathan Brooks, I believe, preferred his middle name, and went by Brooks.

Has anyone come across any land or obit/cemetery records for this "CASWELL" family? George, Nancy and their kids are noted in the 1850 census as born in "GUILFORD" and living in CASWELL. Anyone know exactly WHERE in CASWELL they were living?
