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.)
