"I have Edwin Sawyer born March 1851 died Jan.28,1901 buried

Is this the date on the tombstone in Barco? I have a copy of his death certificate that provided the vitals.

Do you know where you sourced the wife's name "Frances"? On his death certificate it says "Phonella". Some of the family members (now deceased) called her "Phernelia (sp). It would be interesting to know where Frances was found!

"their kids is a match but the last one Irwin"

Uncle Irvin died when I was in high school when I started working on the Sawyer side of me family tree. His information is correct and sourced, if you would like to add it.

Thank you so much for all of your help!

Where is the Sawyer Graveyard in Barco, if you are local? I live in Currituck County, but only know of a Sawyer graveyard in Belcross, Camden, NC.

I will investigate more when I locate the graveyard, I need to take pictures there.

I don't know a Roy Sawyer in Currituck, but I will see what I can find out about him.

Thank you so much for your assistance!

Surnames: Perry, Sawyer
For many years I have searched for a Nancy Sawyer who was married to Josiah D. Perry (b 1820, d 1882). I suspect that Nancy died ca 1866. Children include Ivey Dowdy Perry (b 1855, d 1937) and Joab Sawyer Perry (b 1861, d 1952), among others.
Does anyone have a record of Nancy Sawyer?

Surnames: Talmon Sawyer
Talmon Sawyer was my great grandfather on my father's side, by marriage. His last marriage was to Ella Kirl, they lived in Sligo on Poyners Road. I know Talmon had 3 children that I know of by a previous marriage, Robert Sawyer of Eliz. City (the one with all the wreckers), another son we always calledd Snooky, with no idea what his real name was, and another son that owned a service station in Great Bridge, and can't remember his name. I lived next door to Talmon growing up, he couldn't read or write but in the summer months would religiously take me to the library every week to get my week's supply of books. Loved baseball and swore vehemently man never landed on the moon. Him and Grandma Ella lived in 5 school buses that the front had been cut off of and welded together until their last 7-8 years when the biys got together and bought them a mobile home.
