I would be very interesting in knowing more about the Todd/Fauntleroy family.In our Watkins family…. Emily Eliz. WATKINS married Henry Waring Todd, October 20, 1835.Henry W. Todd was born about 1807, died about 1873.Emily & Henry Waring Todd moved from Georgia to Chambers County, AL.There are references to them in family letters through the mid 1860’s.But we do not know who the parents were of Henry Waring Todd.
The Todd’s are of further interest as there was an Elizabeth TODD who married into the EARLY family of Greene County, GA, as well.Elizabeth TODD married Jeremiah EARLY:Augusta Chronicle, August 2, 1806:"Married, on the 1st instant at Mr. Henry Todd's, by the Rev. Francis Cummins, Mr. Jeremiah EARLY to Miss Elizabeth TODD, both of Greene County."We believe this to be Jeremiah EARLY, the brother of Mary “Polly” Early who married George Watkins of Augusta, GA.Their brother was Gov. Peter Early.
Emily Watkins who married Henry W. Todd was a child of George & Mary Early WATKINS.So…..it is possible that Elizabeth TODD (who married Jeremiah EARLY) could have been a sibling of the Todd who was the father of Henry Waring Todd…..whoever that was!?
Henry Waring Todd & Emily Watkins had 3 children:Capt. George Fauntleroy Todd who died at the Battle of Seven Pines in the Civil War; Lucy W. Todd who married Judge Sampson Watkins Harris (II); and Dr. James Scott Todd who married Julia Heard Beall.Here is a little of Henry & Emily’s descendants (as we know them):
