Will & Estate of SallY Dales- 1868

 
When I first started researching the DALES, I only knew them in relationship to the family of Isaac Evans-West, b. 1805, who was married to Winifred Dales in 1825 Franklin County, NC; as Isaac & Winny West, they are the ancestors of the WEST families in Warren and surrounding Counties who were Free People of Color. In addition, I found Sally Dales Will & Estate records in Franklin County, which shows a much more extensive family covering the Counties of Franklin, Warren, Halifax and Nash. More recently, I have been able to confirm the identity of Sally as not only the wife of William Dales (b. abt 1775/d. 1830/1840 Franklin Co.,NC) but also as a daughter of LEVEN & KIZZIE EVANS of Warren & Halifax Counties. The following is my transcription of Sally Dales Will & Estate, as well as other records I've been collecting in trying to identify some of the people named in them.

 

Will of SALLY DALES


Franklin County, North Carolina
Book U, Pg. 6

This my last Will and Testament
I will and bequeath to my daughter SALLY one loom and gear, on Bed and Bedstead, one cow and calf, one ox and cart, one red painted chest, one table and one dinner pot. All my things in the press and my hogs, I also wish her to have, all my property that not specified in this will at my death.
I will and bequeath to my daughter WINNIE, one bed and bedstead, and bed clothes, and two red painted chairs.
I will and bequeath to my daughter ELIZABETH, one red painted table, one cow and calf.
I never want any of my property sold at my death, I want my three daughters, SALLY, WINNIE, and ELIZABETH to have it as I have left it. This March 12th 1859

Notes:

In trying to identify some of these unknowns;
JAMES & SALLY WHITE were probably siblings of some sort since they were given 1/8 portion together rather than separately, just as NORFLEET, HENRY & MARY RICHARDSON, who were the children of JAMES RICHARDSON & ADELINE DALES of Halifax, although PATSY DALES, B. 1800, probably sister of ADELINE who had died before 1850, was living with them in 1850 & 1860, possibly to care for the young children. I believe that PATSY DALES was the same person who had married LUNSFORD EVANS, in 1823 Franklin County, NC. 

Possibility for JAMES WHITE (starting from 1860 are from my file of MATTHEW G. WHITE, b.1853) and sister, SALLY WHITE, and father JOHN WHITE:

JAMES WHITE & CELIA JONES, of Halifax County, North Carolina. JAMES & CELIA were married on May 6, 1845 in Nash County, North Carolina. Their son MATTHEW WHITE married JANE WEST (d/of WILLIAM E. WEST & MARY J. CARTER of Warren Co.) in 1898, and their son BENJAMIN WHITE, married BETTIE MILLS, and were the parents of CELIA WHITE, b. 1888 who married FRANK RUDD (s/o LUCIOUS RUDD & MARY ANN WEST) in 1909.



This is from FreeAfricanAmericans website, WHITE Surname:

Other members of the White family were...

iv. John2, born circa 1790, head of an Edgecombe County household of 6* "other free" in 1810 [NC:715] and 4 "free colored" in Halifax County in 1830. On 17 May 1841 the Halifax County court permitted him to carry a gun in the county.

*Note: Actually reads 3 Other Free in 1810 Edgecombe*

(This was probably the father JOHN WHITE, and perhaps he married a member of the DALES Family; she was abt the same age as he, so it was likely that she was a sister to either WILLIAM DALES or his wife, SALLY EVANS DALES. Whoever his wife was, they apparently married sometime around the 1820-30 time period, judging from the ages of the children in the 1830 Census)
