My earlier post indicating that Samuel Cartledge had a daughter named Mary is only speculation and probably not correct. This comes only from the fact a Mary Cartledge is mentioned in the settlement of his estate in 1844. There is no mention that she is his daughter. In any event she is probably not the Mary you are looking for because she would not have been a Cartledge in 1844. I also discovered that Samuel's brother, Edmund Cartledge, M.D. also moved to Edgefield Co, SC.
