        Bessie Frances Morefield was the daughter of John Henry & Sarah
        Elizabeth (Snoddy) Morefield.
        John Henry was the son of John W. & Paulina (Fulk) Morefield. John
        W. was the son of an Elizabeth
        Morefield, who was probably Elizabetth Hines, who married John
        Morefield 17 aug 1828 Davidson
        Co, NC. Elizabeth, Frederick and John W. Morefield were in Surry Co,
        NC from 1850.

        A John Morefield
        appeared in the 1830 and 1840 census with a female of Elizabeth's age
        (b. @1796) and two males
        consistent with Frederick and John W. John was b. @1770/1780, and I
        speculate that he was
        married before and may have been the ancestor (father or
        grandfather?) of George Washington Morefield
        (1824/1827-1915) and/or Spurgeon Morefield (b. @1811 NC d. 1891 IN),
        and perhaps others.
        Probably from the Rowan Co. Morefield family, who lived in the part
        that became Davidson Co.
