Journal*Sampson County, North Carolina, USA; This is a placeholder entry for the parent of Hester Balkcom's grandson Lemuel, identified as such in her will. There are three candidates for this parent based on Hester's household in 1810. One is an unassigned male age 16-25, and the assigned birth year is a guess based on this person. The other two candidates are William Balkcom found in the 1820 Sampson County census, maybe Hester's son although not known for sure, or daughter Nancy Balkcom. Nancy is very unlikely if Lemuel was born in around 1821, both due to her likely age and that Nancy in her own will in 1853 names her children and does not name Lemuel.
