Pascal H. Wooten

RESEARCHER: Information sent to T.Mason by Marianne Leader on 10 Oct 2014. "Pascal H. Wooten is found in documents relating to the purchase of a lot in Quincy FL in 1828 (records of Gadsden Co FL) and then later in records of soldiers in the Seminole Wars in FL, he is found as a lieutenant in 1838, absent on leave on Mar 1, Quincy, FL. His ancestry, almost without doubt, is from the Thomas Wooten who married Sarah Rabun in 1754 in, probably, Nansemond Co VA. Some genealogists have identified this Sarah Rabun as daughter of Matthew Rabun born 1744. But of course the time-frame is totally in conflict with this fact of marriage in 1754 for this Sarah.  She is, instead, the sister of Matthew Rabun Sr b 1744. She was born c1734, let us say, judging from marriage date, the older sister of Matthew Rabun born 1744.  In Edgecombe/Halifax Co, NC where both the Wootens and the Rabuns had moved by about 1760, the father-in-law of Sarah Rabun, Benjamin Wooten, married to Elizabeth Rousseau (Huguenot family) wrote his will in 1764, probated 1764 in Halifax Co, and Matthew Rabun (birth 1744) is one of the witnesses.(Halifax Co NC Will Book I, p 151). Later after Sarah died in 1768, Thomas Wooten remarried to Tabitha Bradford Pope, and after Revolution in Wake Co NC,  they  moved with seven sons and one daughter, (WOOTEN family on Rootsweb.com) into Wilkes Co GA. Sources are not totally agreed upon which children belonged to each marriage, but at least three Wooten sons in Wilkes Co GA were nephews of Matthew Rabun.  Now in this marriage of Maria Ellender Rabun to Pascal H. Wooten, we probably have two second cousins marrying — a very common phenomenon at the time. (I have not yet been able to trace the exact line of descent for Pascal H. Wooten.)"
