|Possible Record Problem! (One)|
[REF:#003] writes: Capt. Jacob ZIBELIN married Laura Eugenia Surratt, in Dalton, Ga, on August 23, 1864. She was born to Armond (sic Almond) A. Surratt and Jane H. Kilpatrick, on June 05, 1844, in Rutherford Country, NC. They moved to and lived in Canetuck Township, Pender County, Point Caswell, NC, where he operated a blacksmith and wheelwright shop.
Other (1850,60,70 & 1880 Census) records show Laura E. SARRATT was born near the Surratt's Creek Plantation in old Spartanburg Dist. of South Carolina, not Rutherford Co., NC... (Her Mother Mrs. Jane H. (Kilpatrict) SARRATT was born in Rutherford Co., NC.)
Census 1870 & 1880 list Jacob's Occup. as "Farmer".
| Possible Record Problem! (Two)
[REF:#003] writes: The family story goes, that John Jacob ZIBELIN met Laura Eugenia Sarratt working in a hospital for wounded southern soldiers and to show his Yankee contempt, he intentionally knocked over a pile of clean linens she was folding and she slapped the pudding out of him. Evidently, they hit it off since they got married on August 23, 1864.
Note: What "Hospital" and where was it located? No USA hospitals were located in Whitfield Co., Georgia (See USA Hospitals)
Jacob ZIBELIN, and family moved from St. Louis, MO. back east to
Canetuck Twp., Pender Co., NC. some time between Jun. 1865 and Nov. 1867.
