Dear Betty, I will keep your message, and if I find anything further, I will let you know, and I hope you will do the same for me. I do believe there is a strong possibility that Rebecca is related to Ira. I suppose it could be a coincidence that they were both born in S. C. and that he was just boarding with them. ??? But it seems more likely that they may have come to GA together. I have more census index listings on Rebecca in SC which I want to look at the actual census, and that might tell me something. Frequently, on the same page one will find family living nearby. Have you ever checked S. C. for Ira's parents? I will do that as well. My Booths are driving me crazy! I have found everyother line all the way back into VA in the early and mid-1600s, but the Booths (and his wife Martha Kelly's family) and the McDonalds (my gr'grandmother) on my other side are the only lines that have been impossible to find. I guess I can consider myself lucky, having only those three giving me trouble. Let's keep each other posted. And thanks again for sharing!
