      Thanks Trish,  I've never come across Apalonia or Apsley or Appy in the lines I've been searching. I have come across a variety of Biblical names and names of Greek origin. I sure wish I was researching one of those instead of John Moore. hah  I'd even prefer Rumplestilskin.
      Hope everyone has a great Labor Day. cheryl o7o

      Cheryl,

      I have never seen the name Apalonia or Apolonia in these parts in the
      time frame we are researching (1700s and 1800s) though it is listed in
      one list of biblical names I found on the internet. I think it may be
      Greek or Italian (from Apollo) and not very many Greeks or Italians
      were here in this region of NC during that time.

      I cannot find either "Apsley" or "Absley" on any of the name lists on
      the internet as a given name, although it is found as a surname and a
      place name.

      At any rate, I can find a number of times the name "Apsley" or the
      more common usage "Absley" was used in this region of eastern NC. I
      have seen one other variation "Abasala" which may be feminine for
      Absalom. These are some of the names that I find fascinating. I
      wonder if it is an Irish name.

      Trish
