Shared note
!Herring Highlights Vol. II. On 14 Apr 1795, for 5s Jacob Herring, Sr., sold 384 acres to Benjamin in Wayne county. Benjamin Herring made his will there on 7 Aug 1815. Only his wife, Ann and 2 sons -- Joseph and Benajah -- are mentioned by name, but he alluded to other children & believed his wife to be with child when the will was drawn. The will was probated in the November Court 1815. Other records list 7 children born to this union with none born after 1812. Strangely, one record lists Wake Co, N.C. as the birthplace of all 7 -- which the writer believes to be in error. Seal to Parents: 5 Mar 1996 ARIZO - Mesa Arizona From Rootsweb (Rose Parks): Benjamin's will dated August 1815 and proven November Court 1815 leaves all to his wife Ann and names her and sons Joseph and Benajah as Executors. Inventory of Goods and Chattels Feb. Ct. 1816 Division of Negro by lots dated 8 Dec. 1828 recorded Feb. Ct. 1829 (is this when Ann died?) This came from Mary Parks Macy of Chapel Hill, NC Listed in Index to NC Wills RD 3 page 314(I do not know what the RD stands for)
