Re: LIZA PINTER: SC, b. 1838
In Response To: Re: LIZA PINTER: SC, b. 1838 ()

Hey, Dawn!

I looked today at the family of Jim PINTER today in 1880 and was blown away to see him living next door to GrGrGrGrandma Eliza Pinter NORRIS! I truly believe that he is her brother because he's not old enough to be her father nor was he born in SC as stated in both the 1880 and 1900 Census where I've seen Eliza. It also made me curious about other PINTERsin Harrison so I went hunting. Couldn't find any others in Texas on HeritageQuest.

However, I found a family in the 1860 Census living in VA, Jim's birth state:

Peter Pinter, 33 M B VA
Sally Pinter, 30 F B b. VA
Rob? Pinter, 23 M B b. VA
Mary Pinter, 20 F B b. VA

I recently found out that Liza's husband Buck NORRIS registered to vote in Harrison County in July of 1867 and his birhtstate was shown as NC rather than SC as I earlier believed so I looked in NC also for PINTERs since both Buck and Eliza came to Harrison before the 1865 end of Slavery.

1880 Census, Edgecombe County, Upper Conetoe NC

John H. Pinter, 18 M B b. NC (living alone)

The second family that I found living in NC is:

1880 Census, Granville County, Sassafras Fork, SC
Emaline Pinter 35 B F b. VA
Elizabeth Pinter 13, daughter, F B b. VA
Mittsie? Pinter, 13, daughter, F B b. VA
Jack Pinter, 11, son M B b. VA
Lizzie Pinter, 11, daughter, F B b. VA
John Pinter, 9 son, B M b. VA
Robert Pinter, 7 son B M b. VA
Docey Pinter, 3, daughter F B b. VA

**I especially like Emaline's family because she has two sets of TWINS. Twins run rampant in the NORRIS line and Liza PINTER married a NORRIS, Sonny Norris, b. 1859 SC before moving to Marshall, TX.

Since Nancy Pinter and Eliza Pinter NORRIS are from South Carolina I looked there also:

1910 Census, Newberry County, Location 6-TWP Floyd SC
John Pinter, 30 M B b. SC Father SC Mother SC

Is there any way to tie these out-of-state PINTERs to Eliza/LIZA PINTER Norris and her neighbor Jim PINTER? There were very FEW black families with the surname of PINTER on HeritageQuest.

Any assistance or different perspectives on a clue to tie these families together above, I'd love to hear from you.
