I perhaps should have added that I was talking about the following:
Samuel Gettys [ca. 1708-15 March 1790] who md. ca. 1751 Isabella Gettys [1731-1815] and had children:
1. Elizabeth b. 19 Sept 1755 2. William b. 2 Apr 1757, d. 6 Sept 1813 md. Agnes Carson, lived Rutherford Co., NC; the grandson mentioned in William Ramsey's will. Agnes Carson was the daughter of John Daniel Carson and Mary McFarland. 3. James b. 4 Aug 1759 md. Mary Todd; Brig Genl after whom Gettysburg is named, I presume; Mary Todd is presumably the aunt of Mrs. Abraham Lincoln. 4. John b. 22 Dec 1761 5. Isabella 28 Feb 1764
I am indebted to "chriscoffield" database at worldconnect for information on Samuel and Isabella and their children!
If anyone has any information on Mary McFarland, please let me know!
