U.S. States: Virginia: Madison County
Looking for information on Sarah Rosson b)1837 in Madison County. Her parents were Barnett Rosson & Rhoda Batten. Sarah was living in the household of Robert H. Tanner & Elizabeth Taylor at age 13 (I believe her parents died from an epidemic and their nine children were sent to live with various family members) Sarah's brother, Yancey was placed at the home of Robert Tanner also.
Sarah had a son, George Franklin Rosson, when she was 16-17 years old. George Franklin Rosson was born in 1854, married Ada Jane Batten, and raised his family in Albemarle County. Although George's marriage record shows his name as Rosson and his mother as Sarah Rosson, his children all went by the spelling of Roston. I understand that George had been divorced when he married Ada Jane.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
