Thank you for siting this source. I had seen those people on the
(and have an identity for each name) but did not have the reference to Mrs
Micah was ordained at Little Emory Church in 1820, and apparently served
various churches as a travelling preacher until his call to Concord in 1824.
According to my information, some not proven, Isabella and Sarah were the
names of his two wives. Charity may have been his mother, and Sampson a
brother or close cousin. Isiah who died in 1841 was Micah's son. I have his
estate records (copies of course). Micah was executor and paid many of his
son's debts out of his own pocket. Micah also petitioned the County to
provide income for Isiah's young wife and two baby daughters. I do not know
how he died.
Thanks again for the original material.
