This James Jenkins was the son of John Jenkins and wife Anne.
Mary Cherry was the daughter of Solomon Cherry and his first wife Sarah.
[I think Mary Cherry probably was 2nd wife of James Jenkins.]

Children of Capt. Solomon Cherry and wife Mary Walton Eason:

Served on the Board of Trustees UNC from 1804 – 1809;
1804/5 in NC legislature
John H Wheeler in his “Reminiscences and Memoirs of North Carolina” says this on page 342. “William Cherry was a native of Bertie County , and was graduated here [UNC] in the year 1800. While in college he was not a very diligent student, but his aptitude for learning was so marvelous that, it was said, he could prepare his lesson after the recitation bell had commenced ringing. Having selected the law as his profession, he had already attained an extensive practice and a high rank at the Bar, when his career was cut short by death caused by intemperance at the early age of twenty seven. Those who were engaged in practice with him could not but wonder at the admirable manner in which he managed his causes, knowing as they did that the time he ought to have spent in the preparation of them was passed at the card table and around the intoxicating bowl. . .”

  1. Hello I’m trying to link my great grandmother Celia Cherry “1887” to the one you speak of. My grandmother and great grandmother were residents of Windsor, Bertie County, North Carolina please help me

  2. Dear Cousin Sally, I have had occasion to help a Sharrock slave descendant find the plantation from which her family came from. It was the Whitmell Sharrock plantation in Bertie County, located on Hwy 308 about halfway between Lewiston and Hope Plantation. Later it was the home of painter Francis Speight, who was a grandson of Whitmell and his second wife Margaret Cross Horne.

    Whitmell Sharrock’s first wife was Susannah Spivey, daughter of William and Amelia Cherry Spivey.
    William Spivey, d.1836, in his will refers to his son-in-law as Whitmell “Shark” but in William Spivey’s estate papers Whitmell’s name is spelled correctly as “Sharrock”. One of the slaves I was looking for, a woman named Margaret, was inherited by Whitmell from his first father-in-law, William Spivey.

    Whitmell’s parents were Samuel Sharrock and Mary Saunders of Gates County, who had first married Lemuel Lee of Bertie. Samuel’s parents were Bathsheba Daughtry and Thomas Sharrock, the cabinetmaker. Another one of Thomas and Bathsheba’s 11 sons, William Sharrock, married Winifred Griffin, sister of Mary Griffin who married Moses Bishop of Roxobel.

    Apparently, many people were not accustomed to the spelling of Sharrock, and often wrote the name as “Shark” in the 19th century. Eight of Whitmell’s male slaves, ranging in age from 20-40, ran away to join the Union Army or Navy. All of their names were recorded by the enlisting officers as “Shark”, “Sharke”, or occasionally “Sharp” and only once as Sharrock.

    Hope this will clear up the mystery of just who “Mr. Shark” was in William Spivey’s will! I’ve enjoyed looking for him. Sincerely, your cousin, Gregory Tyler

  3. Hi, I’m a descendent of Julia Cherry Outlaw. She was a slave on the Cherry Plantation. Her daughter, who was also born a slave, Caroline Cherry is my great, great, great grandmother. Does your research extend to the lives of the slaves sired by Solomon Cherry as well? I’m interested in learning as much as possible. Thank you.

  4. Hi, I’m looking for evidence that James Newsome was sone of Hosea Newsome and Molly Jenkins. What help can you share?

    Many Thanks
