Descendants of Nicholaas of Melton


      352. David M.18 Melton (John17, Zachariah16, John15, John14, William**13 Milton/Melton, (I), Richard**12 Milton, (I), Thomas11, Richard10, Henry9, Richard8, Thomas/Richard7, John6 Melton, John5, Sir Thomas4, Ricardus3 de Melton, John2, Nicholaas of1 Melton)16 was born 1765 in Edgecombe Co. N.C.16, and died January 29, 1815 in Nash Co., N.C.16. He married Barsheba Barefield Thomas16 Abt. 1791 in Edgecombe Co, NC16, daughter of Micajah Thomas and Mouning Barefield. She was born 1767 in Edgecombe Co, NC16, and died May 28, 181816.

Notes for David M. Melton:
David MELTON was born about 1765 in Edgecombe County, North Carolina. He died on 28 Jan 1815 in Nash County, North Carolina. He has reference number P221.

It has been tradition that the Melton and Wilder families were of the same area in Nash County, North Carolina. An early county history (of Morgan Couty, Illinois) records that Wiley Wylder and his wife, Temperance Melton, were of the same neighborhood in North Carolina. They were married about 1818.

The 1800 census for Nash County records these Meltons as heads of households.

David Melton: Roll No.: 32, Page No.: 111
Cooper Melton, Roll No.: 32, Page No.: 112
Elizabeth Melton, Roll No.: 32, Page No.: 111
Josiah Melton, Roll No.: 32, Page No.: 111
Phahaley Melton, Roll No.: 32, Page No.: 112

The 1810 census for Nash County records three Meltons as heads of households
They are:
John Melton: 1 male 45 or above years of age
2 males 26-45 years of age
1 female 45 or above years of age
Joshiah Melton: 1 male 45 or above years of age
1 male 16-26 years of age
1 female 45 or above years of age

These two, apparently, were older couples and had no daughters of Temperance Melton's age group.

The only other Melton listed in the 1810 census for Nash County is David Melton. Apparently, he had 5 daughters of "marrying age".
His household is listed as follows:
David Melton: 1 male 26-45 years of age (born 1755-1784 = David Melton)
1 male 10-16 years of age (born 1794-1800)
1 female 26-45 years of age (born 1755-1784 = Wife of David Melton)
1 female 16-26 years of age (born 1784-1794 = Elizabeth Melton born 1792 married Moses Widler)
2 females 10-16 years of age (born 1794-1800 = Temperance Melton born 1798 married Wiley Wilder/Wylder)
2 females under 10 years of age (born 1800-1810 = Sarah Melton born 1809 married Langston Moore).

David was administratoe of the William Mathews estate in 1802, Nash County, North Carolina.

He was married to Barsheba about 1790/91. Barsheba was born about 1768. She died on 28 May 1818 in Probably Nash County, North Carolina.
