Hello,

I am doing family history on the Kelley line and I ran across your email on Rootsweb. You also have some Higginbotham line. I am looking for children of a Ephraim Kelley (born in SC about 1795) and Jane Higginbotham (born about 1795 in Georgia) married in about 1814 in either Georgia or Tennessee. I am trying to make a like with my ancestor Garrett Kelley born in Hardin Co. Tennessee in 1819. If you could help me out it would be so great. Thanks for your time and effort.

Sincerely

I found two daughters for Ephraim in the land records . He gives them land and in the deed he says," for the love and admiration of my daughter." That was neat. But it also gave me their maiden names. But still nothing concrete that links, Garrett to Ephraim...But he does give him land. And still nothing of Garrett's wife's maiden name or wedding date. ...Love, Judi
