Are You My Cousin?: A Little Mystery Solved

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

I tell the stories of my ancestors’ lives. Whether they lived 20 years ago or 200 years ago, they each have a story to tell. Some ancestors tell their stories willingly. Others must have their stories carefully teased from the records. Sometimes the stories are sad. Sometimes the stories are happy. Sometimes the stories are just funny. Regardless, my ancestors’ stories shaped their lives and the lives of those that followed. Come and share in the tales!

A Little Mystery Solved

I have known since early into my research of the Howard (Harward) family that James Harward (1760-1840) was in the home of Daniel Parham in the White Oak District of Wake County, NC for the 1840 federal census.  (James died in Sep 1840). I have just never known why.  Who was this Daniel Parham?  Was he a son-in-law? Grandson-in-law?

Thanks to a Parham family researcher, I got the clue I needed this week. It turns out Daniel Parham was the son-in-law of James' second wife Rachel Belvin Harward.  Daniel was married to Rachel's daughter Mary from her first marriage.

It's nice to have another piece or the puzzle in place.
