MEBANE

 

Sally's 4-great aunt - sister of Sarah Wood who married John Wheeler

William Mebane 1779 - 1856 his parents
& ca 1799 Mary Wood 1780 - 1846
her parents
of Mason Hall, Orange Co, NC


          This is my working hypothesis - the way I see it as of this moment!! 


After the death of her mother Sarah, Julia Munroe Wheeler stays with this family in Orange County until her father married his third wife.

Mary Wood & William Mebane of Mason Hall, Orange Co, NC had:
1. Dr. Alexander Wood Mebane 1800 - 5 Feb 1847 age 47
     married 27 Jan 1824 Mary E Collins Howe 1805 - 29 Oct 1855 age 50
             From Moore's History of NC Vol II, p16- Concerning the Legislature of 1829 "Among the new members of this year was Dr. Alexander Wood Mebane of Bertie. He was reared in Orange, but had married his cousin Mary Howe of the Hermitage on Chowan River and dwelt at that noble homestead.

He was a man of large endowments. A devotion to the Democratic policy did not interfere with large and successful financial schemes. He was one of the leading fishermen in the broad waters of the Albemarle country. This business had received an enormous impetus since 1815. At that time, two Northern men had introduced a long seine, worked by windlasses and horse power, at Lawrence's Point on the Chowan, six miles below Colerain, and soon others were put in, two thousand yards in length, requiring six horses and fifty men and women in their handling. Prior to this time the spring catch had always been effected by means of short float nets and weirs."
