Re: Hall Co. GA Elizabeth “Betsy” Ann Mahalia Pirkle
According to the Pirkle book:The Betsy who was daughter of John Pirkle and Betsy Ann Lawless was born May 11 1833 and married Rev. Dudley Jones Maddox.
This line was closely allied to the Prof. John Cagle who wrote the first edition of the Pirkle book, so I would trust that you do indeed have a different Betsy.
William Pirkle b 1797, son of William Pirkle and Sarah Cantrell, and grandson of John Pirkle and Charity Dibbs, was married (1) to Martha "Patsy" Lawless on Mar 1, 1821, in Hall Co, GA.(He also had two siblings who married members of the Lawless family, who were near neighbors.)
Martha "Patsy" was b abt 1797 in VA and died after 1860 in GA.William died Sep. 4, 1887 in Hall Co, GA.Of their children, one of the younger ones was Hallie who married Will Lancaster.Of the other 9 siblings, two married Lancasters:Parsada b abt 1829 m Web Lancaster, and Elijah L., b abt 1836, m Jane Lancaster.All these siblings were born in Hall Co, GA.
William's second wife was shown on a later census as being named Nancy, but her last name is not known to me.
I hope this is of some help to you.
