My gr-gr-grandmother was born Elizabeth Tolar (or Toler or Toller) about 1794, either in North Carolina or Georgia. She married my gr-gr-grandfather John Brooks in Putnam County on 8 September 1814. I'm looking for her parents, siblings. In digging around, I have found a few references to the "Toller" name in Putnam County -- the 1813 tax list for that county shows one "Lewis Toller," and there is a "Toller" in the 1830 census index. There are several other "Toller" names in Georgia who drew land in the 1827 Georgia Land Lottery -- i.e., Demsey Toller, Lewis Toller, Stephen Toller, and William Toller -- plus a William "Toler" listed as "orphan of David."
Does anyone have any Elizabeth Tolar/Toler/Toller in a family group somewhere who fits this profile? It seems reasonable to assume she was related to Lewis Toller/Toler. "Demsey Toller" was probably the Dempsey Toler listed in my gr-gr-gr-grandfather's Revolutionary War pension application papers (Micajah Brooks). Could Dempsey have been Elizabeth's father?
