      A very kind researcher forwarded a will abstract to me some months ago for John Kerby of Burke/Wilkes County, NC. In that will, John names the children of his brother, William, and his sister, Sarah?, as well. Apparently, John and his wife never had children and he left everything to his nieces and nephews. Among his nephews, a boy by the name of Bailey Kerby. A girl, Lettie, is who I am hoping is my Malitia. She would have been Bailey's sister and I know that my Malitia was born around 1806. So it is very probable that Bailey Kerby, the person listed in John Kerby's will, is one in the same. AND IF Bailey is my Malitia's brother, that would make their parents William and Eliza Kerby. Notice, Bailey Kerby named his second daughter Eliza. Just thought I'd share my donated tidbits with you!

      Dorothy, do you have anything on a Malitia Margaret Kerby, whose mother was named Eliza. She was born 1806 in the Surry County, NC, area. She married William Merriman in Burke County, NC in the early 1820's. He was from Wilkes County, NC. They moved, with her mother, to Bledsoe County, TN, around 1830. I suppose I'm looking for a will or deed that names her and her father. Thanks!
