  1. Thank you so much, Sally. I often come to your site and read your information. My name is Rebecca House Sellers, and I am a descendant of Thomas House, died Chowan in 1733; George House, died Bertie 1770; and Thomas House, died Bertie 1794. Don’t think any of our ancestors still live in Bertie County. However, they seemed to live very close to many of the families that you write about. I have a question. Ann House, daughter of Thomas House who died in 1733. Was she married to Edward Harrell–or to Henry Avera, as the Averit clan says. Thanks so much.
