Below are notes I made while talking to my cousin years ago. I am not at all sure who some of these Carraways are. I am especially trying to find if either of these are related to Matthew Carraway and his wife Nancy Price who lived in Greene Co., NC. Mathew and Nancy had the following children:
Hulda, Malvina, Penelope, William Jackson, Martha Ann Sinith , and Martha Ann Elizabeth.
The son, William Jackson, was born26 October 1833. Does anyone know if this it the W. J. listed above? Who are the other Carraways listed?
Any information at all will be welcomed.
