In Reply to: Prestwood, Goddin, Ethington Holmes FL by Celia Jones of 291

Hello Celia, along the same lines you are working on, Mary 'Polly' Prestwood married John Wesley Chancy September 18, 1876 in Monticello, Jefferson County, Florida. John was in Haw Ridge where his first wife Mirriam F. either died or John just up and left home. Nobody seems to know if Mary and Joseph Ethington were divorced at this time or whether Mary and John just ran off together, and later obtained her divorce. John was born April, 1818 in Darlington District, SC, died August 06, 1906 in Lake Bird, Taylor County, Florida. Mary died March 05, 1893 in Lake Bird, and may be buried where John is at the Lake Bird Methodist Church Cemetery, Taylor County, Florida.

I have very little info for Joseph Ethington, birth, death marriage/divorce dates, ect...should you have any of this, I would appreciate any fill-ins you could supply...

Thanks, Robert
