Re: Aylett - Lapsley Selma, Dallas Co., AL.

In Reply to: Aylett - Lapsley Selma, Dallas Co., AL. by Franck Shelby of 166

I was doing some research recently on the possible English origins of Augustine Moore of "Chelsea", King William County, Virginia,and I came across a photocopied typed piece of paper which included the following:
"Mary Louisa Lapsley married Gilbert Burnet Deans. (She is now a widow, living in Washington, D.C. Her children are: Louise D., married John Sewell, of Miami, Florida; Amelia Byrd D., of Washington D.C.; Herbert D., died in childhood; Gilbert Carter Deans, of Albuquerque, New Mexico).
I have no idea who wrote this, or when.
In addition to Mary Louisa Lapsley, it gives Amelia Lapsley and ___ (I can't read it)Byrd L. as the children of John Whitfield Lapsley (born 1806, died 1889)and Ann Amelia King who had issue.
It says: "Amelia L., married John Crozier Keller. (Had 3 sons and 2 daughters; and grandchildren. The two sons now living are Arthur Keller, of Miami, Florida, and Bernard More Keller.)
Also: " ___ (off the page) Byrd L., married Martha ___ (off the page) Butler. Had ___ (off the page) sons and two daughters; and grandchildren. Eldest son, John Whitfield _____ (off the page), of Selma, Alabama. Eldest daughter Elizabeth ____ (off the page) L., married ___ence Wood, of
___nta, Georgia.

The whole line starts with Elizabeth Moore who is said to be the wife of Augustine Moore by his wife Mary ___ (name not given). She married Colonel James Macon. Their daughter, Mary, married Colonel William Aylett. Their daughter, Rebecca, married Rev. Joseph B. Lapsley. Their son John Whitfield Lapsley (born 1806, died 1889) married Ann Amelia King in 1841.

I hope this may be of some interest.
