Rebecca Alderman, daughter of David and Jemima Hall Alderman

I have looked at several Alderman family trees and some have only the date that Rebecca Alderman was born and others have this information as well as the notation that she married her cousin, Elisha Alderman in 1811 in Duplin Co., NC. I don't question this information, but I just wonder if it has been proven. I have a Rebecca that I think may be Rebecca, the daughter of David and Jemima, but I have only circumstantial evidence and no proof. The Rebecca that I am researching was Rebecca Edwards, a young widow on the 1820 Emanuel Co., GA census living beside John Gregory. John's wife died and John and Rebecca married between 1821 and 1830. Rebecca had three children with John--two sons and one daughter. She named the daughter Jemima. On the 1830 census record, living two households from John Gregory is Thomas Alderman, and John Sloan and John Carlton are also on this same census page along with other Sloan and Carlton families. The Gregory family also were related to the Murphy family and several are buried in the Gregory family cemetery in Colquitt Co., GA. On the 1850 census, John and Rachel Sloan are living in the household of John and Rebecca Gregory. Since Rebecca was not connected to the Sloan family, I thought that she may be connected to the Alderman family. She is the right age to be Rebecca Alderman, sister of Rachel Alderman Sloan. This is all just circumstantial evidence, but it could be true if it has not been proven that it was the daughter of David and Jemima Hall Alderman was the one who married her first cousin, Elisha Alderman. I realize that there were a lot of Rebecca Aldermans.
