Does anyone have proof that Enoch, Jonathan, Zachariah, and Elizabeth are the children of James Albritton, Jr. and Mary Arnett? This has been passed around as FACT, but I have never seen any reliable proof of this. Moreover, is there any proof that James Albritton, Jr.'s wife was Mary Arnett?
I know of two works published on the Albritton family: the Fran Lomas book published in about 1977 and the one by Eleanor Davis McSwain published in about 1985. The Lomas book gives no documentation for the children of James Albritton, Jr. Mrs. McSwain also does not give any hard evidence, but she does make a strong case for Enoch and Jonathan being James Jr.'s sons based upon the process of elimination (the children of most of James Albritton, Jr.'s brothers are proved). However, I don't recall that she made any statements about Elizabeth and Zachariah being James Albritton, Jr.'s children.
While I personally think Mrs. McSwain is probably correct, and that Enoch is James Albritton, Jr.'s son, I have not yet seen any document that proves this. Similarly, to my knowledge, no one has any proof that James Albritton, Jr.'s wife was Mary Arnett. While a possibility based upon the use of "Arnett" as a middle name among Enoch's descendants, has anyone uncovered any evidence that proves this claim?
