e-mail – Sally:
I came upon your site while trying to find info on an ancestor of mine, Elizabeth Van Pelt. I wonder if this is the same individual you have listed as the 5th child of Daniel and Anne. My sources say that Mark Meares married Elizabeth, daughter of Daniel Van Pelt, about 1753 and their progeny include Jesse, Joab, Joel, James, Jonathan, Moses, and William Meares. All of these born in Dobbs(now Craven)County, NC. Elizabeth died in Dobbs County. Her sons were born between 1754 and 1775. I wonder if the May 1769 probation of Daniel’s will gives the administration of Elizabeth’s portion to her mother, Anne, due to her absence and then presence in Dobbs Co.? Any answers? Please share any info or sourses.

Thanks immensely!!!
