      David -
      Would like to thank you for such a wonderful site! I have been searching for months for Mary Mathews family. Mary married James Tolbert. My birth dates are slightly different from yours, but I took mine from the Surry County, N.C. census. (See below) Hope to see more about James! Will let you know what I find! Have you heard anything about the Mathews being Cherokee?

      Kind regards,

      According to the 1910 Surry County Census, Laura had 15 children with 11 living in 1910. Laura's parents were from Pilot Mountain, N.C. It is believed that Laura was pregnant with Walter when she married Fountain but Walter was not the son of Fountain. It is believed that his father was a Mr. Martin. Family members say that Laura had three children by Mr. Martin. She had a son Sid Tolbert when she married Fountain. And her daughter Meda (or Media) that married a Linville is believed to also be the daughter of Mr. Martin. After Fountain died and Laura was not able to care for herself, she was taken to Ben & Susie Jarrell' s home. They were not really able to care for her. Laura wanted to live with her granddaughter that she raised, Marie Jarrell Cockerham. Laura had raised Marie and Mary, the illegitimate children of Laura's daughter Dazzie Jarrell Skinner. Inez Bobbitt, another granddaughter looked after her for a while. Eventually she was taken to her son Walter's house. There she fell off the bed and broke her hip and after that they put her in a rest home. Laura was not good to Marie's sister Mary like she was to Marie. Family members were told by Laura many times that "she loved every bone in Marie's body" (Per Inez Bobbitt 2/23/96)

      On 18 May 1890 when Laura Ann Frances was 26, she first married E. Lafayette Fountain Jarrell, son of Ellis Franklin Jarrell & Nancy Senter. Born on 18 Jan 1867 in Surry County, N.C. E. Lafayette Fountain died in Stokes County , N.C. Buried at Crooked Oak (no marker) on 12 Jan 1947, he was 79.

      iii. Lula Bell (1894-1900) iv. Dama Martha (Bessie) (1896-1979)
      v. Susan Bertha (1899-1984)
      vi. Phoebe Ellen (1900-)
      vii. "Columbus" Howard Columbia (1902-1932)
      viii. Ellis Parker (1904-1979)
      ix. Raymond "Sampson" Lafayette (1908-1958)
      x. Wanda

      She second did not marry Unknown.

      They had the following children:
      i. Sid
      ii. Meda (Media)
      iii. James Walter (1890-1969)

      4. Julia Fannie Jarrell - Tolbert. Born in 1848.

      The 1850 Surry Census shows the the Fountain Gerald household are Frances 51, Peachy W. 27, Mariah 26, Ann E. 22, Will R. 17, Albert H. 16, Ellis 14, Rufus A. 11, Robert W. 10, Julia F. 1 1/2. It is believed that Julia is not the daughter of Fountain & Fannie, but their granddaughter. A fellow Tolbert researcher states that Julia F. is the illegimate daughter of Nancy Fountain Jarrell. The father was a Tolbert. You will note that the mother of Susan Amburn (wife of Richard Walter Jarrell) is a Julia Tolbert born ca. 1850. Could this be the same Julia F. that was in the Fountain/Fannies household in 1850?

      On 14 Mar 1870 when Julia Fannie was 22, she married John Samuel Amburn, son of Jason Amburn & Sarah George, in Surry County, N.C. Born on 29 Aug 1849 in Wythe County, Virginia. John Samuel Amburn later married Elizabeth "Betty" Tolbert. He died in Surry County, N.C. on 3 May 1920, he was 70.

      They had the following children:
      i. Jesse Martin (1870-)
      ii. Susan Jenette (1872-1961)
      iii. Sallie Litisha "Lettie" (1874-)
      iv. James J. (ca1877-)
      v. Mary M. (1879-)
