Thanks so much for your suggestions on Samuel W Maynard b1815. I went to the Durham town hall today but there were no birth records for either Samuel or his daughter, Caroline Wilbur Maynard. I did find a death record for his wife, Sally Adaline Crampton: 28 Feb 1905. From there to Killingworth - found nothing. Finally to Madison where I found his marriage to Sally Crampton: he of Durham and she of Madison. Might have to look in Guilford and/or N. Madison. BTW the "New" cemetery records of Durham have Samuel M (not W) Maynard dying 13 Mar 1842. The Durham death records for the Samuel Maynard who died 28 Feb 1871 as a "M" also. Thanks again for your help.
