William Hall and Sarah Blake (1770-1848), Elbert Co., GA

I have been looking at various records placed on the Internet regarding Sarah Blake, first married to William Hall and married second to William Head. Some of these records show Sarah was the daughter of William Blake and Lucy Allen and that she died in either Jackson, Elbert Co. or Jackson Co., GA. Both statements are incorrect and I would like to set the record straight. Sarah's father William Blake married on 23 May 1780 in Wake Co., NC to Lucy Allen Mobley, widow of William Mobley. This marriage was ten years after Sarah's birth. Sarah was the daughter of an earlier wife of William Blake and whose name is unknown. Furthermore, Sarah was known to be living in Elbert Co., GA just weeks before her death in 1848 and where the family of her daughter-in-law Mariah Turman Hall was seeing after her needs and making purchases for her. There is no reason whatsoever to believe that she died in Jackson Co., GA, and there is no Jackson in Elbert Co. Chandler Eavenson, GGG Grandson of Sarah Blake Hall.
