Sally's great-great-great-great Grandparents:

Arthur Rascoe ca 1739 - 1796 his parents  
& Elizabeth Bentley ca 1758 - 1815
her parents
of near Windsor, Bertie County, North Carolina
 


              This is my working hypothesis - the way I see it as of this moment!!

Arthur Rascoe probably married Elizabeth Bentley ca 1775 about the time he bought land in Bertie County from Abraham Maer.

The name Arthur Rasko appears on a muster list of Captain Samuel Cotten's company in Northampton Co, NC  labeled after 1748.  I date it to be   1755.   As Arthur is the very last name on the list I think he probably just turned 16. Thos. Cotten is the Lieutentant on this list; in 1754 he was the ensign.  Sam Cotten was promoted to Lieut. Colonel by 1763.  The names of James Rutland and James Rutland Jr are both on the list. It appears that James Rutland died shortly after this muster as a son-in law Thomas Beaney is deeding on 14 May 1755 land given to him by James's will .


Children of Arthur Rascoe & Elizabeth Bentley:
  1. Sarah Rascoe ca  1780-
       married  1796 Jacob (or Joab) Champion
  2. Daniel Rascoe ca 1785-
       married  1807 Polly Hunter
  3. Margaret Rascoe  ca 1788 (single 1815)
  4. Mildred Rascoe ca 1791
  5. Frances Rascoe ca 1794 - ? [1845
       married  ca 1812 ? Reuben Lawrence]
            I think this Frances was the wife of Reuben Lawrence
