I love it when it all comes together.
Getting frustrated with a much more 'recent-in-history' branch of the family tree, I have had to step back and be thankful, for the older branches of a different part of my family tree, that all came easily together, thanks to wills and war documents.
My Sixth Great Grandfather, John Lemmond, from Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, served in the Revolutionary War, along with his own father, Surgeon and Clerk, William Marr Lemmond. This is an Irish branch, William Marr Lemmond hailing from County Antrim, Ireland, and red hair has traveled through this line.
John left a will in 1806 that named all 5 of his children and in the 1800 census, all individuals are accounted for:
|Home in 1800 (City, County, State):||Salisbury, Mecklenburg, North Carolina|
|Free White Persons - Males - Under 10:||2 William Thomas Lemmonds and Robert Marr Lemmonds. |

|Free White Persons - Females - Under 10:||1 Eleanor Lemmond|
|Free White Persons - Females - 10 thru 15:||1 Elizabeth Lemmond|
|Free White Persons - Females - 26 thru 44:||1 Martha Query Lemmond|
|Free White Persons - Females - 45 and over:||1 perhaps her mother.|
|Number of Slaves:||1|
|Number of Household Members Under 16:||5|
