My gg grandmother, Rebecca Huey, was said to be the dau of Thomas Huey. She was born in Rowan Co, NC, in 1806, married William Reed Orton and their first child, Sarah, was born in Clinton Co, Ill. They later moved to Iowa. Does anyone have information on her father and siblings? Thanks, Karen

Hi(again), I just replied to your post about the Ortons,and have come upon this one, we're on the same trail. How much info do you have about Rebecca Huey's mother Mary Bryan(?) I have been trying to figure out if William Reed Orton's great grandfather(James') wife Jane Bryan is any relation to Mary. Any help would be greatly appreciated, Sue.(feel free to email me

Sarah Orton is also my GG Grandmother. daughter of William Reed Orton and Rebecca Huey. However I have an older sister for her, Elizabeth born in Clinton, Ill. Giving this family a total of nine children. How does that match your records. I would be interested in learning what your research has turned up on the Hueys. Also I am interested on info on Sarah's first marriage to Eli Hamilton. Thanks, Norma

Susanne! Hope you don't mind someone else jumping in on this trail with you. Have been searching the same problems. Any clues yet? I'll let you know if I find anything. I have nothing on Rebecca's parents at this point but a name and birth year. If you have more I would be excited to know. Thanks, Norma

Yes, I have Elizabeth as the first child of Wm Reed and Rebecca Orton. I have no information on her marriage to Eli Hamilton, but I found much info on the Huey family at It was posted by Paul Gifford and goes back to 1739. See if you can find that site and copy it.

I would love to have a copy of the list of 9 children that you have. I am trying to trace Naomi Jane Huey or Hughey that married John Pinkerton in Tennessee. I know that she was born in NC, but am at dead lock. I cannot tye her into the families that all seem to come NC. Any help would be appreciated. Someone told me that they think her real name is Rebecca Jane Huey not Naomi so this might be a lead.
Thanx, Barb

Hello Karen,
I have Rebecca Huey as daughter of Thomas Huey and Mary Bryan. I have Rebecca's date of birth as July 14, 1806.
I think we have the right connection.
I don't have much information but I will share the siblings I have listed.
