DAR claims that Jeremiah is the son of an Elizabeth Nelms who married Jeremiah's father, Simmons Everitt.However, the following tends to prove otherwise:
1.Family record book says Jeremiah was born in April of 1771. 2.Descendants of Elizabeth Nelms claim that she was Jeremiah's step-mother. 3.A document in the Bedford Co. VA courthouse proves that Elizabeth Nelms is NOT the wife of Simmons Everitt in 1775 as it calls her ELIZABETH NELMS.
DAR changed my application where I stated that Simmons had been married twice and that Jeremiah was the product of the first marriage to an unnamed female.I never claimed in my application that Elizabeth Nelms was the mother of Jeremiah and they never offered any documentation for the change on my application.
Does anyone have any documentation other than what I stated above to prove that Elizabeth must be a step-mother and can NOT be Jeremiah's mother?
