Ann Sun Speight was born 11 Mar 1769, the daughter of John Speight and wife Jemima of Chowan Co.
25 Aug 1755 Elisha Scull was born, the son of Edward Scull and wife Christian.

1815 from the James Scull’s Bible death page
“Alpha Spate Scull died the 13 of Oct 1815” I think this is a misreading of his mother AnnSun Speight Scull.
