Birth: unknown
Death: May, 1850

60 age about 60 years

LUKE MCGLOHON FAMILY LUKE MCGLOHOU was probably the fifth child of George McGlohon and Stocks (?). It is difficult to determine whether he or Thomas was the -e~ld~e-r--­since Luke died before the census records gave any ages by single years. He died in May 1850 after 14 days of an unknown illness. The 1850 Mortality Schedule gave his age as 47; but the tombstone record (!1!1 County Gravestone Records, Vol 2, p. 52) states that he was about 60. If 47 was his correct age, then Thomas was older. Sixty is probably nearer being correct. He married MARY (MOLSEY) BRAXTON (?), dau. of John and Hannah Braxton (?), probably early in 1821. According to Mary McGlohon Smith's records, Molsey was a Braxton, the daughter of Lacy Braxton and the sister of Council Braxton. However, on the death certificate of her daughter Louisa McGlohon Byrd her name is given as MARY STOCKS. Louisa's husband gave the information and should have known Mary's maiden name. If she was a Braxton and Council was her broth­er, the Hannah Braxton (aged 73) in the next household to Council in the 1850 Census might have been her mother. The only record found of Lacy Braxton was as a free holder on the jury that made the division of the land for the dower of Elizabeth Stocks, widow of Benjamin Stocks, on Nov. 25, 1834 (DB GG, p. 350-51). He is not listed in any of the census records of Pitt County. John Braxton was also on the list of free holders. Elizabeth Stocks was the daughter of Noah Tison. Since the name of Benjamin Stocks appears in several records with Luke, it seems that they were probably related in some way. Both Luke and Mary are buried in what some call the Byrd Cemetery (named Carroll-Cox by St. Amand) located on the road numbered 1131 (now named Reedy Branch Road) southwest of Winterville. Since Luke's is the oldest known grave, it should be named Luke McGlohon Cemetery. Hereafter, however, it will be referred to as the Byrd Cemetery. A c. C. Braxton and a c. C. Braxton Jr. are also buried in this cemetery; however, this was Christopher Columbus (Tip) Braxton. Mary's tombstone record by St. Amand gives only the information that she died in September at the age of 73. She was 45 in the 1850 Census and 65 in the 1870 Census. Therefore, she was born about 1805 and died in September 1878. A number of deed transactions were found for Luke and are abstracted: DB DD-EE, p. 154--0n Dec. 4, 1819, Luke ("Looky Lohon, his son") bought 124 acres on the east side of Swift Creek and the north side of Cedar Swamp adjoining Jn. Helling from George Meglohon for 100 pounds. William Rountree and David Iight were witnesses. DB DD-EE, p. 156--0n Jan. 22, 1821, Look Mcglohon sold the 124 acres he bought from his father above to Cullen Tripp for 200 pounds. Witnesses were Spier Witherington and Ophinia Tripp. On Jan. 5, 1826, Luke Mcglohorn, bought 12 acres of land from Thomas Mcglohorn for $30. The land, situated on the south side of Cedar Swamp, was part of the land George deeded to Thomas in 1824 (DB DD, p. 231). Moses Her- 1 ,., I l , I ~ I l l ~ I l j , I l l l
