R O Galloway C.C

NOTE: I typed this in full simply because it is land acquired by Gideon Pegram who is the ancestor of so many of the Pegram family still residing in Rockingham County, N.C. The John Pegram who is shown as a witness on this Deed is John Pegram, son of George Pegram, Sr. Who died in Warren County, N.C. in 1825 and is named in his Will. John came with his uncles Daniel Pegram (3) and Edward Pegram to the Guilford, Rockingham area about 1795. We have no written proof that Gideon was the son of Daniel (3) but there can really be no doubt. We have another Deed executed by either Daniel (3) or his son (Daniel (4) before they left Guilford County, N.C. in about 1825 (see index above). By elimination, Gideon was too old to be a son of John Pegram (his cousin) and he is not named in the estate papers of Edward Pegram (his uncle) in Guilford County, N.C. This leaves ONLY Daniel Pegram (3) as a possible choice for his father. Unfortunately, since Daniel Pegram (3) his father apparently died shortly thereafter and we have   no written proof. One explanation for the fact that Daniel (3) apparently left no Will is that he had sold all his land in Warren Co., N.C. by 1808 and then sold his small Rockingham Co., N.C. tract to his son, Gideon Pegram. It is even possible that Daniel (3) never left Rockingham Co., N.C. He would have been quite old at this time and we know we find his widow, Agnes (Jones) Pegram living beside her son in 1830.
