Starting with my maternal grandmother my direct female line is:
(1900 - 1978)
(1882 - 1968)
(1839 - 1908)
(abt. 1802 - bef. 1860)
(d. aft 1860)
All of that information comes from Edward's Revolutionary War Pension application which was filed in Rockcastle County, Kentucky in 1851 by his children, Mary King Mullins and John King - the only two who survived their mother.
This is one of those "Brick Walls" that may only exist because I haven't done any work at all so it's about time to at least create a few research "to do" items.
- Download and review Edward's 129-page pension file from Fold3 (as opposed to the 7-page copy from Heritage Quest that I have).
- Check for Will/Probate Records for Edward and Felicia in Ashe County, North Carolina. (The pension file indicates that Mary's husband, Spencer Mullins, was administrator of Felicia's estate so there should at least be a record for Felicia.)
- Check for Edward and Felicia's marriage record in Wilkes County, North Carolina. (According to pension application, no record could be found in 1851.)
- Review Wilkes County, North Carolina records for anyone named Lewis.
