SUBJECT: Parents of Sarah "Sally" Abney and some other questions
The parents of Sarah "Sally" Abney who mar. Dr. James Spearman abt. 1784/5 in SC are a mystery to me.
Also connected to my 'Sarah "Sally" Abney line, I am a descendant of Thomas Spearman (b.1740) & Elizabeth Catlett of Essex Co, VA.
After some years of research I'm still stumped as to who Elizabeth Catlett's father was. While discussing CATLETTs, I'm also searching for the name of the father ofSusannah Catlett who mar. John Spearman (b. abt.1675). I feel that these CATLETTs were connected outside of the Spearman line somehow, but have no proof of this. The 'Descendants of John Spearman' book isn't always helpful, and this is esp. so concerning my line from Phebe Spearman to her husband David Martin.
If anyone is researching these families, would you mind letting me know if you have found out anything worthwhile on them? I would certainly appreciate it. If any info. & resources you should choose to share w/ me was helpful to you, but you had to pay a pro. source to get it, I'd be interested in helping reimburse you in some way for sharing it. I don't believe in taking the hard found research of others for granted.
Thanks so much for any help or direction on any of these three queries.
