I was posting this under Standlee and Ledbetter surnames, and I got an automated prompt suggesting I post on the county board, so here goes.
I had a sticking point researching Bud Ledbetter.
I've been trying to confirm information on Bud Ledbetter, which lead me to the following set of family trees.
My family tree takes me back to GG Grandparents Mahala Ledbetter and Charles Z. Davis, and GGG Grandparents Catherine Standlee and Jefferson Davis before that.
Mahala Ann is the daughter of Isaac Jones Ledbetter. I've been researching his offspring.
I believe the correct spouse for her sister Charity is William Standlee. I believe you can follow his tree up to a father Levi Standlee, and Grandfather David Standlee - Brother to my GGG Grandmother Catherine's father John Standlee. (Just confirming known statements as it relates to my tree.)
I believe the correct spouse for Rachel is Iredill Davis. Many family trees, show 'Ardell'.
Charles Jefferson (husband to Mahala) had a brother Aaron Davis (born in 1846). In the 1860 census, they are household number 810, and Iredell is listed as a seven year old born in AR. (That spelling is per the online transcription.)
His grave marker shows. Iredill.
I found there marriage license:
OK, the last of the offspring I was trying to verify was Bud. The post in the Standlee line showed him 1863-1865. Some family trees shown him born in 1862.
With his father being killed by the bushwackers in 1861, the probability of that being accurate I felt was low. Information on Bud is hard to come by. Some trees for Isaac Jones Ledbetter do not show him. One of my hits for Bud showed Isaac H. Ledbetter as the father with Rebecca Winningham as the mother. Both fathers came from Overton TN, to Carrol County, AR.
I'm leaning towards thinking he's a son of Isaac H. only, and there is no Bud in the household of Isaac J.
Any help that can be provided would be appreciated.
