These are the heirs of William Willingham of a 1797 will Columbia Co., GA; some of them are husbands of the daughters.

[Some Columbia Co., GA records p. 104]
Based on the order of the children of William in his will and the order of the children listed in the above heir's sale, we conclude that:
Fanny Willingham m. by 22 Nov 1820 Jesse Roberts,
Martha “Patsy” Willingham m. by 22 Nov 1820 Reuben Willingham,
Judah Willingham m. by 22 Nov 1820 (ca 1813) Edward Gaither. Judah/Judea Gaither got a full share of her sister, Elizabeth Davis', estate in 1855, so Judah was still alive in 1855.
Does someone have further information on this Edward Gaither, ancestors or descendants?
