Christy, If you are still reading this board... I descend from Thomas J. Stell and Sarah Hogg, thru daughter Elizabeth m. William Thornton.
I know that the Hogg Family Association believes that Sally was the daughter of Thomas Blair Hogg and Martha Chandler, but Sally, Thomas, or their daughters, Elizabeth or Julia Amanda are not mentioned in the wills of T.B. or Martha. Sally would have preceded her parents in death, and her portion of their estate would have passed to her children. They would have had to be mentioned. Her two daughters were not named for her mother, if her mother was Martha.
Mary Bynum provided me with the will of Thomas J. leaving land in Barbour Co AL to Elizabeth and Juliann Amanda Thornton. Julia A. m. Elijah Thornton. The names Julia Amanda and Elizabeth are carried over strongly into the Thornton families. William and Elijah were the sons of Wiley Thornton and Elizabeth Johnston d/o Littleton Johnston.
