Hello I am trying to help a friend prove for the DAR under John Ogletree b abt 1733 Hanover Co VA d 7 AUG 1822 Wilkes County GA. Her mother was Vashti Naomi Ogletree - dau of George Cleveland Ogletree - son of William David Ogletree - son of Joseph H Ogletree - Son of Clairborn Ogletree - son of John Ogletree and Ann Duncan
She has a book written by Hope Hull Ogletree and Sarah Byrd Ogletree Robertson but it has no publication date and refers to documents but is not really sourced.
We can prove cleanly to William "Will" David but even though the book says Joseph had a son Will and refers to Joseph's Bible record as proof, the Bible record of Joseph H Ogletree published in Tap Roots Al does not mention Will.
John's will does mention the son's of his deceased child but does not mention Clairborn. We have not managed to locate Ptomey's book or the one by Franklin Jones.Does anyone out there have any proof of this line?We would really appreciate the help. Thanks Carla
