Looking for information on Amelia and Christopher Sanders.
Amelia b. ca 1770-1775 VA. Did they have a daughter named Amelia who married a Garrott? After Christopher died in Bladen Co. NC Amelia went back to Nansemond Co. VA and married a man whose surname was Lester, or so we are told. This couple went to Oglethorpe Co. GA and Amelia Garrott b. in VA. went to Oglethorpe Co. GA. After the death of Garrott, Amelia married William Elkins who's wife had died. William Elkins became the guardian of the minor Garrott children. It appeared that Amelia Garrott Elkins maiden name was Cheatham but no proof. Others think her maiden name was Lester but here again, have no proof. Was her maiden name Sanders? Have we all been on the wrong track all along? The Elkins, Cheathams, Garrotts and Lesters were all in Virgina and went to Oglethorpe Co. GA. We all need some documentation for the maiden name of Amelia Garrott, Elkins. Was she a Cheatham, Lester or Sanders? Would be so very thankful to settle the matter with some documentation. Can we work together on this? I would sure like to try.cbh
