Saturday Night Fun Brick Wall

Awake and arise, you wonderful Genea-Musings blog-readers, and know that it is Saturday Night - time again for more Genealogy Fun!

We all have "brick wall ancestors" - those for whom we cannot find a complete name, or identify a set of parents. By posting information about a "brick wall ancestor," someone mght find your post and be able to contribute to your knowledge about that ancestor.

Your mission, should you decide to accept it (and I sincerely hope that you do) - is to check your files and sources, advance to your keyboard, and:

1) Identify one of your "brick wall ancestors," and tell us about him or her. What do you know? What would you like to know?

I would love to find the parents of John Jackie Vanderpool. He was born in North Carolina about 1805, and married Nancy Campbell. There has bee quite a lot of research on John's ancestors and no one has yet to find any proof for the parents of John. The Vanderpool group has settled on Anthony Vanderpool for John's father but there is no proof to support this other than he fits between the other children is their only proof, but he fits in four other Vanderpool families also.
