Hey Dot,

I am not sure if anything will come of this, but I have been dabbling in my family tree over the past year or so. Anyway, I am a Koonce and my father's family is mostly from Lenoir County, NC - but we also have relatives in Craven County. It is my understanding that there were two Koonce families, as my father knew other Koonce's but did not have any relation. I would guess though that somewhere up the tree they are. Also, you should probably know that my family is African-American. If you would like to try and figure out if we have any overlap please email me directly at

Hope to hear from you

I know a Timmy koonce in Jones co. Trenton N.C. was married to Donna? 2 years ago I was there and he was still around. If this will help you any, I'm sure he is in the phone book, or you could probly call any where or anyone in Trenton and ask he is very well known. he is probly the age of 40-50 now.

Solomon Koonce, my ancestor left North Carolina before the Civil War in the 1800's.
He moved to Haywood County, TN and later to Crockett County, TN. He lived to be 101yrs, fathered 10 children by 2 wives. Supposely had a brother named Ned. Every 2 years, we have a Koonce Family reunion in Maury City, TN.

Della, I am not sure, if the family is related or not. I am trying to do research on the family, and it is hard so I would appreciate any help. The Koonce's would be on my granfathers side, and my Mother's. My grand mothers name was Lucy Rebecca Jenkins, she married John William(Bill) Koonce. His Mother was Rhoda Jean, and his father's name was John Ellis Koonce. My Mother told me she also had a grandmother that lived in Jones county last name McDaniels, I don't have any dates of deaths etc.. So any help would be appreciate.

Koonce's Craven County to Davidson County, TN????

Surnames: Koonce, Hart

I am also researching Capt. John Koonce who (I think) is of Craven County, NC, because his daughter Aseneth married a Richard Hart from there, and I believe the families migrated together.

Here is what I know: Capt. John Koonce, Jr. is married to an Elizabeth, and their daughter, Aseneth Koonce married Richard Hart in Davidson County, TN in 1808. They became residents of Maury County, TN until about 1846, when they moved to Marshall County, Mississippi.

I hope this helps you out... and any help I can get from you in return would be great!!!
