It makes sense to me. LOL William had three wives. 1-Elizabeth Key. I often wondered how or if she was realted to Francis Scott Key?2- If I remember correctly, which I rarely do these dayd, It was his son John who married Boyd. By his second wife he had 15 children. 3- Lastly he married Merrick in Union, SC, and had the three boys. Miles was the preacher. As far as I know EM was the only Martindale to ever set foot in Fuldon county. I need to make one small correction. Burnadotte. The locals call it Burney-dot. Its a village of few hundred situated on asmall dam and stream. Great resturant.An Army barracks was set in the hills high above the stream in WWII.Ps: I am awfully glad to meet you too.
I was always curious about EB for two reasons. The coincidental birth year, and how they are related as they both have the same grandfather. If the parents are half-siblings, are the children half-cousins?
I may have the wives mixed. I'll will have to go through my records. I've had the Marindale Record for a number of years.
