The Naramores of North Alabama - First generations


The North Alabama family of Nar(a)mores I am describing here trace their ancestry to Joseph Naramore, who was born between 1790-1800.  Based on DNA matches, Joseph’s descendants (including my father) are related to some of Lt. John Naramore’s (son of Edward Naramore of South Carolina) descendants.  But our Joseph can’t be one of John’s children since his children are named in his will and he has another Joseph.  So it is probable that our Joseph Naramore is a child of another son of Edward, either William, Edward (Jr.), or Eli  (no other candidates being known), and a grandson of William .

Note that there are some Alabama Naramore families that moved into the central part of the state in the early-mid 1800’s from Lt. John’s family.  Here I attempt to trace the family of Joseph which mostly stayed around Jefferson/Walker/Tuscaloosa Counties and also moved into Colbert County in the first 1-2 generations.  (After that, several moved north to Ohio/Michigan and a few moved west.)



Very little is known about Joseph.  He was born in the 1790’s.  His first documented appearance is his marriage to Delila Reid (1802-1879).  This record is the only place that Delila's maiden name appears.  Joseph next appears as a constable in Jefferson County, Alabama in 1826.  It is perhaps significant that the first sheriff of Jefferson County was a Levi Reid (beginning in 1819).  In 1830, he appears on the Walker County census.  In 1837, he (or perhaps his son Joseph) receives land in Tuscaloosa County from John Woodiel of Walker County.  Remember that name because it will be significant later.

Joseph and Delila's last child was born about 1836.  After 1837 there is no other record of Joseph, and his places of death and burial are unknown.

Delila appears on the 1850 census as Delila Woodell, living next door to several of her children.  How do we know this is her?  In 1852, the State Assembly of Alabama passed an act "solemnizing the existing marriage of John Wooddell and Delila Naramore" and exempting them from penalties of an illegal marriage.  The exact details of this arrangement we can only speculate about.  Perhaps one of the spouses abandoned the other.  Perhaps Joseph went missing or died but there was no evidence to prove he was in fact dead.  Anyway, as Delila lived near her children, we can presume that she was on good terms with them.

I know nothing about Delila's ancestry.  The presence of Levi Reid in Birmingham is suggestive of a relationship, particularly since they named a child Levi.  As a warning to researchers, there is also a Levi Laird Reid about the same age who moved from South Carolina to Mississippi but it does not appear to be the same person.  So I am interested in where Levi Reid came from.  He seems to be the same Levi Reid who was named as one of the first people to ship coal down the Warrior River.


The children of Joseph and Delila are not known for certain.  However, there are multiple pieces of evidence that these individuals named here are the right children.
1) The ages and genders of the children born before 1830 match those children of Joseph listed on the 1830 census.
2) Almost all of these people (Delila and her supposed children) lived in very close proximity in 1850 and 1860.
3) Four of the brothers (and at least one brother-in law) served in the 43rd Alabama Cavalry in the Civil War.
4) These families repeatedly reuse several uncommon names, in particular Levi and Reuben.
5) DNA matches have linked some of these branches.
6) All of these children were born in Alabama and Joseph is the only known male Naramore of the right age in north Alabama in the 1820-1830 time period.

One more thing, this family is one of the hardest to trace I have ever run across.  Due to the vagaries of 19th century spelling, people possibly not being able to write or read, backwoods accents, and (last but not least) poor census-taker handwriting, I have seen this name appear in many forms including Narrimore, Nawromore, Larimore, Normo, Normoor, etc. It is only from years of research (and the input of many other researchers and family members) that I have been able to compile all this information!

The Civil War was obviously a tragic time in our nation's history but it hit this family especially hard.  I will write a follow-up post that gives more details of their military service.
