I have wondered many times if the Bibb Co., AL Filgo family was connected to John. I felt they must be from other children of the older William in Limestone Co. Archibald Bracknell is listed on the 1850 Bibb Co AL census as only 3 years old. If he is the same one that Susan married in 1867 she would been older than him. I have not checked them out on later census. If Susan was the daughter of John Filgo, she would have been born in the 1830's. I don't have the exact date of John Filgo's death. On February 24, 1840 in a petition to sell his land it lists his sons and daughters as,
Mary Eliza, wife of Joseph WARD, over 21
James Henderson Filgo, over 21
William Taylor Filgo, minor ( he was born Dec 24, 1820 -pp )
Elizabeth Ann Filgo, minor
George White Filgo, minor
Sarah Frances Filgo, minor (probably about age l0 - pp)
Martha Salina Filgo, minor
SUSAN ELLENDER FILGO, minor
Harritt John Filgo, minor
Harriet J. married in 1852 so she was born a few years before 1840.
So this Susan Ellender was in Lauderdale co AL in 1840 and a child. Archibald Bracknell or Brackner was in 1850 Bibb Co AL and only 3. It almost sounds like the wild man and the medicine woman might have been in an older generation.
But I would like to know more, it sounds interesting and might lead to new clues for all of us.
One of the obstacles is the fact that no one can find the Filgo family on the 1850 Census. Mary would be the wife of Lauderick Pruden by then and William Taylor Filgo would be about age 29 or 30. They all might be in the same household or with other people. We have reason to believe that William Taylor Filgo was around Itawambe Co MS in 1850, but cannot find him or his Mother or younger sisters except Sarah Frances. She is married to Caney Washington White and on the 1850 Itawamba MS census. Wm. T. Filgo was on a taxpayer list ca 1845 there.
