Additional confusion on this Mary Ann comes from a letter placing her with father Thomas3, Edward2, Bartholomew1.To be a daughter of Thomas seems difficult based on her birth date and the fact that most think Thomas married after her birth and her dates fit better with this Richard.However, this evidence can not be ignored and further research is needed. In a letter during the 1920’s to William Snyder Vawter, a portion below gives more information. "Of the children of Thomas and Elizabeth Pitts Vawter, I (Ella Burnley) only know that a daughter Mary Ann married a Mr. Chaffin of Prince Edward County, a son Edward married Sarah Lee, dau. of Joseph Lee of Cumberland County. The last named couple were my great grandparents. A daughter, Martha, married a Mr. Faris, a son Ludwell never married. A son Lemuel remarried and had five children, and a daughter Elisabeth, married a cousin named Vawter and had two children."
