Hi :)...
Researching George Davenport of Halifax Co., NC...It appears he is murdered by Winfield Staton around 1863. His wife, Mary, remarries in 1865.
In past research, I have come across the names and a murder in the Halifax, Edgecombe areas, where they have record of a posee (sp) formed to hunt Staton down.
Has any Davenport researchers of the Halifax, Edgecombe areas heard of this murder and am I in the right direction with the Davenport name.
Trying to find proof of Mary and my gg grandmother Susan Mary.

Thanks...:o}
