Alfred Bellew (AKA Alfred Ballew) was a son of Jacob Bellew & Mary (Polly) Center. My original research on the Ballews & Bellews of Greenville Co., SC indicated that Mary (Polly) was a Gosnell, but contemporary researchers have determined that she was a Center.
The maiden name of Alfred's first wife, Matilda, is unknown. Matilda was the mother of at least the first four children. Alfred's second wife was Rebecca (Becky) Wright, a d/o Wright Wright & Malinda Hilborn. Rebecca Wright was enumerated in the household of her parents in the 1850 Spartanburg Co., SC Census. She was 10 years of age.
I determined Rebecca's parentage by the fact that Malinda Wright (age 70) was enumerated in the household of her son, Ebenezer Wright (age 36), in the 1860 White Co., GA Census.
The households of Alfred Ballew, Noah Ballew, & Ebenezer Wright were neighboring ones in that 1860 White Co. Census. Noah Bellew (age 46 in 1860) was a brother of Alfred Bellew. Ebenezer Wright was a brother of Rebecca (Becky) Bellew. The wife of Ebenezer Wright was Arena/Arenia Bellew (age 22 in 1860), a d/o Noah Bellew.
Alfred Bellew's age of 25 in 1850 is obviously incorrect, as his mother, Mary Bellew, was 76 years of age and his father, Jacob Bellew, was 78 years of age in 1850. It is more likely that Alfred Bellew was 35 years of age in 1850. Jacob Bellew was still alive, at age 90, in 1860, residing with his son, Noah Bellew, in White Co., GA.
Nancy Lambert has the lineage of Wright Wright in her Rootsweb WorldConnect Project, The Begats.
