I am searching for any information on the ancestry of Martha "Patsy" Gambrell b. 17 Feb 1801 Tennessee d. 18 Jul 1879 Dekalb Co, TN m. ca 1819 Dekalb Co, TN Alexander Martin b. 19 Nov 1797 Tennessee d. 21 Nov 1876 Dekalb Co, TN.
I've long believed but never been able to prove that Martha was the younger sister of the Gambrell (unknown given name) that married a Permillia "Millie" and had the following children in the Dekalb Co, TN area: Henry Gambrell (m. Abigail Maynard), Sarah Gambrell (m. Solomon Robinson Cole), John Gambrell (m. Elizabeth Miller), William Gambrell (m. Sarah Cardwell), and Robinson Gambrell.
I've also tried unsuccessfully to link these Gambrells to the descendants of John Newton Gambrell and Barbara Bruton/Vaughn of Anderson Co, SC.
I would greatly appreciate any information or ideas about the ancestry of Martha "Patsy" Gambrell or her relationship to other Gambrells in Dekalb Co, Tn.
