Rebecca Boggs/Short/Maggard
Posted by: TLM Date: July 29, 2000 at 11:22:11
  of 1659

My husband's 2nd GR-Grandfather David "Dave" Maggard (b. 2/27/1873 in Letcher Co KY d. in Wise Co VA), was married to Sarah Leah Short (b. 12/29/1877 d. 4/14/1959 Wise Co VA?), daughter of Daniel H Short and Mary Jane Stallard. David was adopted, so we have no idea who his birth parents might have been, except that one of my husband's relatives found in an old family Bible that David's mother's name was Rebecca Boggs. Other records list Dave's mother as Rebecca Short:

The Wise Co VA online marriage records have Dave's mother listed as Rebecca Maggard. Does anyone out there know who Rebecca really was? Who were her parents? Who was Dave's father? Thanks!
