Notes for Elizabeth Tankersley: Subj: Re: Sampson and Sally Solesbee Date: 4/3/01 5:54:41 PM Eastern Daylight Time From: firstname.lastname@example.org (millard murdock) To: PSolesbee@aol.com
Phil. John Zebron' s father is Sampson Solesbee ,son of James and Mary Hughey Solesbee. James is the son of Job,Sr and Elizabeth. Sampson was evidently married twice. The 1850 and 1860 census has his wife as Martha. and the 1870 census has his wife as Caroline. John would have been from Martha. Laura Solesbee's death certificate gives her parents as John and Jane Loftis. She died Feb. 11,1916 and her birth date says unknown. My Solesbee line goes through Sampson's brother , James Riley and Susan Bishop, William Riley and Eliza Sherbert, Jefferson Riley and Nellie Lewis , and Lillian and Lloyd Young . I also go back to Job and Elizabeth through their son Job, Jr. and Sarah Cannon. Jehu and Emmaline Dillard , Sarah Etta and Henry Lewis . then Nellie. I have been trying to sort out the Solesbees in Spartanburg Co. but it is difficult .I'll be glad to share any information with you. Linda

Tankersley is not a common name, therefore I claim connection to all! : : My grandparents lived in Georgia during the civil war, but they seem to have migrated there from South Carolina and Virginia. I would like to communicate with any other branch of the family.
My husband can trace his family back to Habersham County, Georgia and before that, Spartenburg, South Carolina. Job And Elizabeth Tankersley Sosebee lived in Spartanburg and after Job died, Elizabeth moved to Habersham County, Georgia with her family. we do not know Elizabeth's parents and would like to find them. We think maybe they were near by in Georgia. Do you have any information concerning an Elizabeth Tankersly Sosebee?
