I have been looking for the parents of Austin Sandridge who was born c 1777/78 Married Sarah Thurmond d/o Benjamin and Nancy Carr Thurmond 12 Aug 1799 Albemarle Co., VA died 1829 Albemarle Co., VA for almost 20 years.I am going to try another approach.Austin and Sarah had 6 children:Benjamin T. Sandridge b. c 1818 m. Isabella E. Mundy 21 Dec 1838 Albemarle Co. d. 1871 Columbia, MO. I have that Benjamin and Isabella had 9 children. There were several Sandridge families who went to MO.There must be descendants from Benjamin and Isabella.The rest of Austin and Sarah's children were girls - Malinda B. m. Henry J. Price 18 Dec 1839.Nancy P. m. William P. Wilkerson 6 Jan 1825.Susan G. m. Edward Gilbert (my line)5 Jan 1821.Sarah A. m. Ambrose H. Wilkerson 3 Jan 1831.Mary Ann m. Bently Brown 20 Apr 1829.All marriages were in Albemarle Co., VA.
Now I know that many people think Austin's father was Stephen Sandridge b. 1752 m. Sarah Henderson 1773 d. 3 July 1821 Franklin Co., TN but I cannot find any proof of this.Stephen did have a son, Benjamin, who m. Mary Elizabeth Martin c 1820 in Franklin Co., TN.Benjamin was born in Franklin Co. abt 1798.Does anyone have any ideas, suggestions, etc. regarding Austin (whose middle initial wasG. (as in Graves??))?Thanks.
