I am interested in infomation concerning the family of my great grandfather, Peter Day, also known as Reverend Simon Peter Day, born in Carroll Co, Va, in 1836. I am proud to have Peter Day's family Bible, containing the following family records. Scanned images are available if you are interested.
Peter Day - (born March 18,1836)
Wife - Timrinznay Weeks (born November 24, 1836) (married on March 26, 1857)
Children - George Washington Day (born February 18, 185?, the year is unclear)) ("departed this life" ((my great grandfather's words)) on September 2, 1859)
John Quincy Day
(born December 26, 185? , the year is unclear)
Timrinznay Weeks Day (departed this life May 28, 1861)
Second wife -Malinda W. Honaker (married on July 12, 1865) She was born in Virginia, full name Malinda Wilburn Bickley Honaker. All of the following children were born in Texas.
Children - Elizabeth Caroline Day (born May 17, 1866) ) (departed this life July, 1867)
Lillie Virginia Day - (born March 20, 1868)
Lorenzo Dow Day - (born December 16, 1869) (departed this life May 29, 1922, buried in Farmersville, Collin County, Texas) This was my grandfather. I believe he may have been named after an uncle, also named Lorenzo Dow Day, who my research has shown died on December 1, 1858 in Carroll Co, Va. This Lorenzo Dow Day was shown to be the son of Joseph and Rebecca Day, and the information was provided by a Peter Day. Wife - (Mary Elizabeth Reneau) (born April 3, 1904, Chenute, Pickett Co, Tennessee) (departed this life July 11, 1965, Del Rio, Texas). This was my grandmother, the only person in this listing of my family that I knew.
Joseph Patton Day - (born April 29, 1874)
George Washington Day - (born February 26, 1875)
Mary May Day - (born May 14, 1876)
Ellis M. Day - (born December 30, 1877)
Harvey Bruce Day - (born January 26, 1880)
All of the underlined names are in Peter Day's Bible. In research done by others, I found a Peter Day, born in 1836 in Carroll Co, Va, who married a Gomaxency Weeks, on April 8, 1857, in Carroll County, Va. Note that my great grandfather, Peter Day, married Timrinznay Weeks on March 26, 1857. The name Weeks, the unusual first names, and the same marriage year in the same county, lead me to believe that the two Weeks, Gomaxency and Timrinznay, may be the same person. I would appreciate any clarification of the Weeks information, plus any help with Peter Day. In particular, is he the son of Rebecca Dunn and Joseph Day, Sr, who died in Carroll Co, Va, in 1855.

I am searching for the origins of my great-grandfather Allen Spence (March 29, 1853- April 22, 1925) According to his death certificate (Halifax County, NC) he was born in Virginia. Family stories tell how he use to "wash his hands" in clouds of the Blue Ridge as a boy. My grandmother told me he followed the Roanoke River to Weldon, NC when he was about 18 years old. There he met and married Mary Elizabeth Shearin in 1881. When I followed the river up stream, I ran into Carroll and Floyd Counties. The death certificate lists Allen's parents as Allen Spence and Sarah Stephenson, both from Virginia. In Death Records of Carroll County 1854-1896 (Ronald W. Hall) I found a listing by the parents -Isham and M.F. Spence of Carroll County for their 12 year old daughter-Lucy A. Spence, who died in Sept. 1885. Witnesses included Allen Spence and Sarah Stephenson. Can you help me with the connection with Allen and Isham? Also, I can find reference to Aaron Spence but not an Allen Spence from the correct time period. My great-grandfather named his 1st born son Allen Aaron, but I can find no written record of his own middle name being Aaron. Thank you for your time and consideration.
