Hello, Have been researching my g-grandfather Lyman Liggett - Married Lillian Mckinney, daughter of Colonel CC McKinney, 8th regiment TN Volunteers CSA.
1850 Census, 11th Dist Marshall County TN, shows his father as W.A. (William)Liggett with wife of Elizabeth.I believe William's father was Wade Hampton Liggett B.1807, and Wade's father was William Liggett B.1774, and William's father was Michael Liggett/Leggitt Jr. husband of Rachel Shelby, daughter of General Evan Shelby and Letitia Cox and brother of Isaac Shelby (1st Governor of KY).
Can anyone help on this lineage?Seems all were in Mecklenburg,NC before moving onto Marshall County, TN. Have seen posts concerning Rachel and Michael Jr. and their children Rachel and Charles Legate.
