page 623 from the "Jack County History" book is on the Melton families, the quote is as follows:

"Sarah Melton Caddell Green was born in Sumter Co., AL, 1858, the sixth child of William M. Melton - Sarah "Sallie" Meador. William was born in Georgia, in 1798, the second son of Elijah Melton by his fire wife, Elizabeth Batson, a Cherokee Indian, only according to tradition."

written by Jean Caddell

The name "Batson" is only used once in the book.
