Does anyone have the proven children of ETHELDRED FORTNER and is wife Sarah who I expect could have been Sarah Russell, a daughter of William Russell and Rachel Scott
Also is Flood/ Flud Fortner, Etheldred brother? Flood/Flud married Nancy Russell,15 Aug 1801 Wilkes Co. NC.
These Folks were in Wilkes Co. NC and had land deeds near my William Russell and my Scotts.
Did ETHELDDRED Fortner wife Sarah die before 1836 are were they divorced and Sarah is living with her son Levi Russell who married Sarah Sally Greer 9 March 1824 Wilkes Co, William Russell was bondsman for this marriage. Sarah was 69 in 1850 making her birth 1781 NC.
Sarah and Levi 1850 Alexander Co., NC Census near then are Aaron Fortner, I expect a brother to Levi, Nancy Russell, wife of Flood and John Russell, brother to Nancy.
There is some research that Etheldred and Sarah children were;
Aaron m/ Judy Phillips 25 April 1831 Wilkes Co. Elijah Webster bm Mary b 1801 m/ Elijah Webster bm Joel Vanny John b/ 1795 m/ Elizabeth Highfield 28 Oct 1818 Jacob b/ 1799 m/ Rachel Ingmon 13 Mar 1824 Violet b/ 1807 m/ John Brown Daniel b/ 1808 m/ Nancy Howell William R. B/ 1816 M/ Anna Lowe
I believe there were more children Etheldred removed to Blount Co. Tennessee and had another family of children and died there in 1852,
