Maiden name found for Lovy Ann

Jul. 2012---I searched and found the following:

Carolina Federal Republican Newspaper; New Bern, NC (CFRep) Mar. 5, 1814)

"Married. Greene Co. on the 24th Ultimate, Robert WITHERINGTON of Lenoir Co. to Miss Lovey OLDS."

My assumption: 24th Ultimate would have been Feb 24, 1814 since 24th of Mar had not happened yet.

After a little doubt, and a lot of hope   I immediately went to and looked for family trees who might have listed Lovey Olds and found several. Some have 5 generations back on her line.  There are several family stories and documents which all tie in to our Lovey.  Lovey mentioned her children and grandchildren's name in her will and these families are found in Greene Co, NC also.  In fact, there is a town there now, named "Olds".   Her daughter Martha and husband, Amos Joyner are found there in Olds in 1860 and in Snow Hill just a few miles away in 1880, both in Greene County.
