Norman Family

James S. Norman (1793-1870) married Mary (Polly) McKnight (1796-1844), daughter of George McKnight and Aaltje Elrod, in 1816. In 1848, James married Mary Christina Hauser (1805-1877). We don't know anything yet about his origins - can anyone help?

First Generation

Children of James S. Norman and Polly McKnight
Meredith Norman (1817-bef 1870) m. Mary Melinda Miller* (1821-1905)
Joshua Wade Norman (1819-1891) m. Nancy Catharine Vogler(1828-1892), d/o Peter Vogler and Sally Reed
George Washington Norman (1824-aft. 1870) m. Lavina R. Crater (1825-aft. 1870)
Martha L. Norman (1829-1865) m. Wiley Ellis Johnson(1815-1890)
**Mary A. Norman (1834-?) [corrected marriage information January 18, 2006]
Sarah Elizabeth Norman (1836-aft. 1850) m. Armistead Geiger/Kiger (1834-1864; died in Civil War)
John Hiram Norman (abt. 1840-1860)

** We incorrectly listed Mary A. Norman's marriage to Henry Joseph Hauser. Henry Joseph Hauser married Mary S. Norman, d/o of Michael and Sarah Norman. This information received from Jim and Betsy Anne Hauser Nottke who are descendants of Joseph Henry and Mary S. Norman Hauser. E-mail address:

*Meredith Norman's wife appears in 1850 as Belinda. In 1860, she is listed as Belinda and Malinda respectively in duplicate entries for their household. In 1870, she appears as Mary B. In daughter Mary's marriage record, it's Verlinda. In the Forsyth Co. cemetery records book she appears as M. Melinda Norman. Assuming this entry is correct, we are taking Melinda as the preferred version of her name.
