Cheryl, I am wondering if you know any more information about Amelia. Doyou happen to have the date and location ( Washington Co., AL ??) for the court papers of guardianship of Amelia (Armelia, Melia) H/Ainsworth Johnston?Her Mother Martha is living with Amelia and Jane in Catahoula Parish, LA in 1850. Also, just recently Patricia Welch shared the newspaper listing for the marriage of Martha Cole, aged 13 years and 8 months to Levin Hainsworth, of Washington Co. AL. aged about 70,on June 20, 1824.This was reported in the Mobile Commercial Register, Tuesday 13 July 1824.
So Amelia's mother Martha was younger than I thought, and had the last name of Cole.Does any one know if she was related to the Martha Cole who married Levin Hainesworth Jr?
Hope you don't mind my asking these questions.I hate to have the Johnston and Ainsworth information online in my file with incorrect information. Betty Vaughn and Alice Lewis have shared so much with me in the past and I really appreciate it.
