Thanks for your reply. However, if I am reading this right; James Mills was born about 1740 and then married Rebecca Hicks, then dates do not work for that John Marchant to have married their daughter. John Marchant, Sr. son Isaac-my husbands ggg grandfather was born about 1766 as he was 84 in 1850. I would not be at all surprised though if that particular John Marchant is related in some way. We believe that our John Marchant, Sr. wife was named Christiana or Christian or perhaps Christina as I have seen those spellings in records. My information on the wife's name however, is based on other Marchant research and I have seen no proof that her name was Christian/Christiana/Christina except for a drawing in the 1827 Georgia Lottery which records Christian Merchant, widow as a fortunate drawer in Columbia County, Georgia. Columbia County is right near Warren County where we know some of the family settled. Also a marriage record in 1818 wherein a Christian Marchant married a Jared Wilkerson in Warren County, Georgia. If she was actually John's widow who married again in 1818, she would have to have been widowed again by 1827 and took back her former married name in order to qualify for the drawing. We know too that John Marchant, Sr. was entitled to a draw in the 1805 Georgia Lottery and was also a fortunate drawer.
