Yes, that's correct. The "Diary Samuel." I found the names of her siblings on an Ancestry tree, I believe. And having those, it would likely not be difficult to find sufficient documentation. I'm guessing it could be corroborated just by Bethany Church records and maybe even current members. I know there are only a few people there, but apparently the church is still meeting. Isabella and Henry's daughter Mary was a memberuntil her death a few weeks ago. Finding Isabella's name in Mary's obituary is what sent me on this interesting chase. And if only I had this information earlier, Mary could have filled me in on all of it.
I'm not sure what school you have in mind - or the castle connection? I was born in Prentiss County, Miss, but spent a lot of my growing-up years in a military family. I attended Belhaven College in Jackson, MS.
The Waldrops and Agnews are not my line, but rather I'm related to the Brices, who share a similar heritage, though no family connection. I also have a Richey line which I've never been able to connect with Dorilla Richey who married into the Agnew family. And I doubt there is a connection.
