In Reply to: Zilpha Meadows or Sarah ? as Thomas Huntley's Wife? by James Allison of 1963

Mr. Allison, It is unfortunate that descendanta of Thomas Huntley, Sr. continue to believe that his wife was Zilpha Meadows. Some have even added Sarah to Zilpha and she is now Sarah Zilpha!! Without proof that is a no, no in genealogy. The fact that Thomas' wife was a Meadows was provided by a colored minister in 1916 to John Wilson Huntley, born 1833. Even John did not know Thomas's wife's name. The minister was born ca. 1832!! He told John that Thomas' wife was a Meadows, sister of Obadiah Meadows born ca. 1800!! I do not know who added the Zilpha but it was given in a DAR application which the gravestone copies. The application stated the dates came from gravestones! And there are none. John wrote a history as he knew it and quoted no gravestones. Virgil
