Today I am taking time off from posting significant research. I guess everyone needs a break from producing and presenting a report.
Even though I am taking a break, I am not taking one from my Cully-line research. I am currently looking at my Great Great Great Grandfather’s (William Cully-born1800) family composition of 1850. I have traced him to the William Dove family in Craven County, NC, where my 3G grandfather was an apprentice alongside his brother James H Cully.
I am also looking at census records on William Dove who was listed as head of household and noted as a free person of color. The problem I am having with the Census records before 1850 is that the individual names are not listed except for the head of household. I have gone from 1790 to 1820 under William Dove’s household and then looked at William Cully household from 1830 to 1850. I am also reviewing James H Cully household documents and taking note of some of the other names listed.
The other thing I am working on is finding all documents that have the Cully & Dove last names listed together in the Craven, County area from anytime period of 1800 to current; even though my focus is 1800-1950. I will also take note of other surnames that are listed with the Cully’s.
I would hope to have some type of report on William Cully, James H Cully and William Dove within a few days.
