Spikes and Gitty (Getty)

I am trying to make sense of the Spikes family that lived in Edgefield County in the late 1700s and early 1800s. There appears to be two William Spikes, one born about 1759 and one born about 1783 in NC, who married Ann Gitty. The latter William Spikes moved to Chambers Ala. In 1847, John Gitty's estate listed sisters Patsy Spikes, Anna Spikes, Henry Stett (Stott?), Stanford May, Susan Skillern, and 7 children of deceased sister _____Moore. Found 1827 will of Henry Gitty that listed Polly Gitty (wife?), Patcy Gitty, Caroline Gitty, Henry B. Lightfoot, John Gitty, Anna Gitty, Peggy Gitty, Susana Gitty. I am trying to find out which Spikes Patsy married. Patsy is a nickname for Martha. We know that William sent a request that Henry Spikes be power of attorney for Ann Gitty Spikes' part of John Gitty's will. Further more, I am trying to figure out how they all fit into B.F. Spikes (Benjamin Franklin) ancestry. B.F. is listed on the 1830 census next to another B F Spikes who married Ann Riley and moved to Mississippi. My B.F Spikes married Caroline Amanda English, moved to Georgia, then Alabama, then Texas.
