Abarilla GOSSETT applied for a widows Rev.War Pension in 1844, and two of her witnessess were: Nicholas and Joseph GOSSETT .  In these records, it is listed that Abarilla Gossett was the oldest sister of Nicholas and Joseph Gossett and that they were the children of Joseph Gossett of Bute Co.N.C., and that Abarilla had married William Woolbands the Rev/War Soldier who had died in 1797/8 in Union Co.S.C..  Sarah Hunnicutt also testified that she was just a very little girl and did not remember her father but only what her mother had told her, and that her father had died in 1797/8 of December.

In 1843 When Nicholas Goswick applied for his Rev/Pension and his brother Joseph Goswick was his witness, they make the statement that "only the two of them are alive that know of Nicholas Goswicks service in the R/W.  The bible records of Joseph and Sarah Goswick's children and birth years had been produced to the court of Union Co.S.C. (two leafletts) and the oldest child on those records was"Sarah" born Jan.09,1752 Baltimore Md..  There is a great possibility that "Sarah" and "Abarilla" was Sarah Abarilla Goswick, and the oldest daughter of Joseph and Sarah Goswick of Franklin Co.N.C..  In 1810 Franklin Co.N.C. there is a Sarah Gupton living between Joseph Goswick, Jr., and George Goswick, and this may be the Sarah that was born 1752 Balt., as Abarill (Goswick) Woolbanks is supposed to be in Union Co.S.C. in 1810. VIEW OLD BIBLE RECORDS.

The 1850 census of Pickins Co.S.C. show that Sarah Hunnicutt was born ca. 1805 and Abarilla Wilbanks was in the household and listed as age 101 born in Maryland (abt. 1749)

In 1854/6 Sarah Hunnicutt (then living in Ga.) applied for the balance of moneys due her deceased Mother Abarill Woolbanks, and stating that she "Sarah" was the only living child of William and Abarilla Woolbanks.

From bible record of Ruby Ruth Sawyer Grice: Enoch Wilbanks Sawyer was born 20 June 1841 about
8 miles from Nashville, TN. (The birthplace is doubtful because records show they lived in Weakley
Co., TN.) He came to Texas with his family winter of 1847. He married Florence DeKernan 22 July
1868 in Limestone Co., TX, witnessed by Squire Wood and family. Florence, daughter of William
DeKernan and his wife, Sybil Ruth Bowman, was born 12 Dec 1847 at Hamilton, Boone Co, KY. (End of
bible record)

Enoch W. Sawyer was son of William G Sawyer who came with a large group from Pasquotank Co., NC
to Weakley Co., TN about 1834. In that group were Frederick Sawyer and Ann Elizabeth Sawyer Wood
wife of John Kelly Wood and daughter of Enoch Sawyer according to Weakley Co court records.
Squire Wood was Joseph Wood, brother of Ann Elizabeth.

Mother of Enoch Wilbanks Sawyer was Sarah A Wilbanks, born in Union District, SC ca 1818,
daughter of Marshall and Susannah Wilbanks. William and Sarah went to Texas before 1850 with
her mother and several of her brothers and sisters and settled first in Rusk Co where they
joined three brothers who went in 1839.

I struck a brick wall with the Sawyers in Pasqutank area. There are zillions of them there.
Marshall Wilbanks was son of William and Abarilla Goswick Wilbanks. William was a
Revolutionary soldier in Union District. The Pension papers, both federal and State of SC
are very interesting.
