Jerusha HUNTLEY married Antipas TISDALE and they were the parents of one son and three daughters, and were living in Newbern, Craven County, North Carolina when Antipas died. . . . the only son inherited the property (a house and lot) of his deceased father. Some time after Antipas' death, Jerusha went to live with one of her daughters, Mrs. Spencer, in Anson County and at some point married Nathaniel SCOTT who also died in Anson County.
Enoch Tisdale, the son, soon died intestate without ever marrying or leaving children; his mother, widow Jerusha, had already remarried to Nathaniel Scott in Anson County.
