I have Arthur Brown's 1826 will. Husband of Lucy Butler. I'm surprized I haven't typed it up yet. He mentions his daughter Nancy Newman. Also the Sampson County Heritage book says Nancy was married to Jacob Newman. The DAR web site says Sophia Butler was married to Wright Ryals. Note that Robert Butler's will says Sophia Royal"s".
I spend most of my time "proving" my ancestors now. If I relied on other public trees, I would have nothing on Arthur Brown Jr. or Alexander McArthur. I have spent many hours at the libraries in Fayetteville and Raleigh. Hang in there and good luck!
