Apperson Family

First Generation

William Apperson was born in 1757 in St. Peter's Parish, New Kent Co. VA, and died in 1826 in Surry Co. NC. He married Elizabeth Kerr (1763-1850) of Goochland Co. VA on June 6, 1781, in Surry County. Elizabeth filed for a Revolutionary War pension in Stokes Co. NC 1838; her declaration and those of several other people supporting her claim provide details of his military service (thanks to Cheryl Hunke for this information!).

Second Generation

Children of William Apperson and Elizabeth Kerr
John Apperson (1783-?)
Peter Apperson (1784? - 1853)
Francis Apperson (1785-ca. 1858)
Richard Apperson (1786-before 1838), did not marry
William Apperson (1788-1830)

Doctor Alexander Apperson (1792-1865)
Mary Apperson (1794-before 1838)
Bennet Apperson (1798-ca. 1822)
Elizabeth Apperson (1799-1851) m. Thomas Sprinkle (1793-1866)
George Apperson (1801-1853), did not marry
twins born and died 1796

Most of the sons in this family moved to Kentucky and then on further west. George and Bennet died in Surry Co. NC, unmarried. So far as I can determine, only Thomas and Elizabeth remained in NC and left descendants. Elizabeth Apperson and Thomas Sprinkle are discussed on the Sprinkle page. Note that Thomas Sprinkle married Luvitha Vest Apperson in 1855, his brother-in-law's widow.
