There is a lot of information in this forum. I feel a bit overwhelmed. I am looking to make sure I have the correct father for John Madison Spurlock born 1811 in Lee Virginia married to Sarah Ann Mason. He is my 3rd great grandfather on my dad's side. (They are the parents of Lucinda Elizabeth Spurlock who married Andrew Jackson Manning. Who are the parents of William Henry Manning who married Ollie Jane Lamb. Who are the parents of Louie Franklin Manning who is my paternal grandfather.)
I can't seem to find records to indicate John Madison Spurlock's father's name. I have found several articles online about how his father is William born 1753 and that his mother was either Elizabeth Smith born in 1770, or Eleanor, but that would have made his dad 58 when he was born. Does that sound right? Does anyone have any information on this?
