Church Family

First Generation

Isaac Wesley Church (1781-1869) married Sarah Buisy (1786-1860) in 1804. We have been told that this family is related to the Church family of Norfolk VA, but haven't reconstructed the connecting generations yet.

Second Generation

Richard Church (ca. 1817-?) m. Selena Flynt (ca. 1828-after 1870)
Martha Church (1820-1899) m. Alexander Transou (1814-1904)
Isaac Church (ca. 1824-?). Did he marry Margaret Hayworth in 1855?
Charles W. Church (ca. 1826-?) m. 1) Lucinda Flynt (1833-1875), 2) Adaline Wear
Elizabeth Church (1829-1912) m. Evan Transou (1827-1912)
William or Willis Church (ca. 1831-?). Did he marry Louisa Miller in 1851?

Were Isaac and Sarah also the parents of Elijah Church, born about 1813, who married Louisa Waldraven in 1841,
and of Robert Church (ca. 1816-bef. 1870) who married Lavinia Pfaff (1817-after 1884) in 1845?

Thanks to Bruce Arnold for information on Isaac and Sarah's family.

Baptisms of several of the children in the third generation are mentioned in Records of the Moravians in North Carolina, Volume 12.
