Re: Richard Leath married who? Williamson Co., Tennessee
Since you are tracing Peter Goodwin Leath, I will start with him.It is understandable, but you have some Leaths mixed up.The Elizabeth you mentioned in paragraph one is Elizabeth (Hollinger) Leath, wife of Peter Leath(b. 1769, VA, d. 1840 TN) and mother of Peterson Goodwin Leath.There is alot of information on this forum about this family posted by Luci Leath Daniel.Search "Luci" and read her posts and others.You can also follow some of these posts by Robert Leath and others to get information on an Isaac Leath.I don't know for sure that he is the Isaac you are referencing, but at least it's a start.
I believe, but cannot prove, that Richard Leath is the son of William Leath of Sussex, VA, but this, as I said, is unproven.He came from Sussex, but I can't nail down is heritage.See other posts on this forum about him.His wife was Polly Malone Northcross Leath.Richard went from Sussex, VA to Brunswick, VA to Williamson, TN, arriving there in 1818 and living there until his death in 1848.The notice of his death incorrectly (I'm confident) lists his name as William Leath--see my post on this subject on this forum.
It is unclear what became of Richard's wife, Polly.Interestingly, there is a Polly Leath enumerated in 1850 in a Shaker community just across the Tenn/Ky border north of where one of Richard and Polly's sons lived.
The John A. Leath and Peterson G. Leath you mentioned are brothers.
I can trace some descendants of Peterson Goodwin Leath through some of his male descendants until today.I am happy to share that information, but it is not in an easy format to transcribe.So, if you will email me at [email protected] and give me your mailing address I will mail it to you.I hate going off-line with information that others could use, but there are also some privacy issues with some living descendants.I think there also may be some information on One World Tree and similar sites posted by Luci.You might check around with them.
