Hello! I am writing a book on Emma Sansom's famous ride with General Nathan Bedford Forrest on May 2, 1863.This forum has been extremely helpful trying to figure out her family tree, but I hope you can help me with some questions I have.
First, if anyone knows when Emma's sister Ann married Calvin and the death dates for both of them.I do know that by 1860 the two were married and living next door to Emma and that both had died before 3 July 1876.Any other info is much appreciated.
Also, if anyone has a marriage and death date for Emma's brother Thomas (md. Lucy Milligan) and death dates for siblings Eliza (md. Thomas Lassiter) and William S.T. Sansom (md. Martha Sellers).
If anyone has any information relating to Emma's husband's (Christopher Bullard Johnson) first wife, Nancy Hambrick, or Emma's stepdaughter, Mary Elizabeth "Lizzie" Johnson, that would be wonderful!
Finally, as I'm not related to the Sansom line, I was wondering if anyone had family stories relating to Emma (other than her ride) or any of her twelve siblings and parents (Lemila Vann and Micajah Sansom Jr).Also, does anyone know what Micajah Sansom Jr. died from? Thanks!
