I just found someone I may be related to on the Brogdon family side. She has an Ellender Turner, the mother of Talitha D. Turner who md. a Brogdon. I have a Frances Ellender Flynn who md. a Brogdon.They all lived in Alabama or Georgia. Where did yours live?
Question: Was it a family name, a name in a popular novel of the day, a fashion? Methinks my connection and the other lady's is no mere coincidence.
