Could it be Buckner Guy? Married Sylva Jeffers 7-16-1810 in Orange Co NC. My Gibsons are connected to these Guys. This Gibson family came to Macon County with the Guys, Jeffreys and others whose racial status in official records fluctuated between "mulatto" and "white." However, they apparently were Saponi (Occaneechi) Indians. I don't find your Anna, but have made contact with other Guy family and maybe they can help. Drop me a line at
