My ggggrandfather was Barak NORTON b. 10 May 1777 and m. to Mary NICHOLSON b. 31 Jan. 1788. I believe they lived in Pickens Co. before moving to Whiteside Cove, NC, around 1820. Barak's parents were William NORTON and Jemima PICKERAL. Am interested in any info on the NORTON, NICHOLSON, or PICKERAL families.
