Name of Ancestor: Kennedy/King
Query: Hello, I am trying to find out more about which Kennedy or King or other related families. My Vance's were in TN as early as ca 1800. They lived in Knoxville TN, Strawberry Plains TN and surrounding areas.

My gr gr gr gr grandad Jame Vance Sr married Mary Kennedy. I do not know her parents but I think she may have been the daughter of a Rev Kennedy. Many of these families drifted to OR, MO, KY, TX, OH, etc. If you have information that would help me figure out my Kennedy/ King relationship I would appreciate it.

Name of Ancestor: Margaret Washington Alexander
Query: I am attempting to prove that my 4th great-grandmother, Margaret W. Elms who is buried at Flint Hill Baptist Church, York County, SC, is the daughter of Augustus Alexander based on the following facts. Augustus' will of 1842 leaves a slave to the children of his daughter Margaret, wife of John Ellams. Obituary from THE 'RALEIGH REGISTER AND NC GAZETTE' of July 20, 1839: "In Mecklenburg, in the 40th year of her age Mrs. Margaret W. Elms, consort of John Elms." (RRw, Reel 14, NC Archives). In published genealogies which do not follow her line, she is listed as Margaret Washington Alexander. From census records, gravestones, and wills, Johns children were: Augustus Alexander Elms b. 1822, d. 13 Aug. 1859 Mary A. Elms b. 1824, d before 1872 Eliza R. Elms b. 12 Dec. 1827, d. 26 Mar. 1855 James A. Elms b. 3 May 1829, d. 20 June 1862 John W. Elms b. 1832, d. 3 May 1899 William Elms b. 1835, d. before 1860 Does anyone have any information to disprove my conclusion? If so, I would appreciate knowing where I went wrong.
