I read the family tree with interest. I have a couple of
questions re: Colbert family. I hope you can help me.
Both my cousin and I started with surnames Calvert and Colvard. His family stayed with Colvard. Mine changed to
(We have identical DNA).
My cousin's ancestor was William William Pleasants Colvard/Colbert. He married Rebecca Davis. They had several
sons and daughters and moved to Hardemann Co., TN in early
1800's. When they moved several families went with them and all were from Rutherford Co. -- Gage, Riggs (Ricks), Ross, Dunaway and Cody. Between 1826 and 1835, all of William's daughters married into the above families.
Rebecca Colvard m. John Riggs 1829
Sarah Colvard m. John Dunaway
Janie Colvard m. James Cody 1826
Elizabeth Colvard m. Alexander Ross 1835
Wade Hampton Colvard m. Latha Ann Gage 1830
One of his sons was Wade Hampton Colvard, b. 1812. He married Latha Ann Gage in Hardemann Co. in 1830. (This Wade Hampton Colvard is not to be confused with the other Wade Hampton Colvard, b. 1805 who married Phoebe Vannoy in 1831.)
Another son of William, aka William Colvard m. Jane Bailey in 1826. I don't know if Bailey family lived in Rutherford or not.
That's another question we're trying to settle -- were the
two Colvard families in Surry County were related.
