Thanks, Gene!

I will use "Joyner" and "Wineford" from here out to be consistent.

I have a transcription from the pages from the Bible; they may be from two different Bibles. Copies of the original pages are supposed to be in the N.C. Archives in Raleigh, where I live. I will run down there and get copies of the originals. I will be glad to mail them to you.

Along with the Yelvertons, the Sherrod clan has been quite important around Nahunta Swamp, in the area that is today Wayne and Greene Counties, NC. Two related Sherod/Sherrod/Sherards settled there very early, including John Sherrod, who acquired land from my wife's ancestor, John Peacock, and lived beside the Peacock clan not far from modern-day Fremont. (Benjamin homesteaded to the east, closer to modern-day Faro, where John Yelverton pioneered in 1756 on land acquired from George Fort.) Though I know I have a way to go to convince the Sherrods, I believe that they both descend from Robert Sherwood of Northampton County, who lived beside John and Samuel Peacock's parents on the south side of the Meherrin River before the Peacock brothers moved to the Contentnea Creek watershed between 1739 and 1742. As you know related families often moved together.

Interesting about the Yelverton ties . . . assume you have seen Keith Yelverton's site?

My direct email is drader@edf.org; zap me an address and I will forward copies of the Bible pages.

Doug
