I'd hazard a guess that the 'L ' stands for Lindsay.
Mary'sbrothers, John Motley Morehead and James Turner Morehead were both governors; John of North Carolina and James of Kentucky. The brothers married sisters, Ann Eliza Lindsay married John, while Mary Tess Lindsay married James. Their aunt was Karenhappuch Turner Morehead, the heroine of Guilford Courthouse. The governors' ladies were the daughters of Robert Lindsay, of Guilford and Letitia Harper. We also show a Joseph M. Scales who married a daughter, Annie, of William Waigstill Avery and Mary Corinna Morehead.The latter was adaughter of Governor John Motley and Ann Eliza [Lindsay] Morehead. We have the family history in the database of the Muirhead Clan Society.
