Has anyone any info on an Alpheus STOKES in the Belvoir area of Pitt
County, near Conetoe Creek? In 1869, John L. ROBERSON/ROBINSON sold
three plots and all three were described as having been listed in the
division of land for an Alpheus STOKES. John sold a plot each to his
sons, William L. and Howell R. ROBERSON and the third plot to Midian
WINDHAM, who I believe was the sister of his wife, Lydia WINDHAM.
I am curious as to the relationship with my John ROBERSON and Alpheus
STOKES, if any and how he came to own the three plots. In the 1850
Pitt Co. census, John is listed in Stancill's District, household
#239, and the next house #240 has a Mary S. STOKES, age 65, living
there. She may or may not be connected to Alpheus STOKES. Maybe there
is a family connection or maybe not, but I would like to see if this
might lead somewhere.
