Eliza Pelham, dau of Ambrose Pelham, Sr. and
Lydia Kirkland, dau of Reuben Kirkland of

Jordan, Jr., William, and Ann.The four
brothers lived in Baker County, Ga.After
the death of Mary Eliza, John returned to
S. C. and married Elizabeth DeWitt.They
returned to Baker County, Ga.Sometime after
l842, John Died and Elizabeth married James
Pearson, a brother to Susan Taylor Pearson,
