Re: Waller Family of Spotsylvania Co., Virginia
I was wondering if you could identify which John Waller, Jr. and Elizabeth his wife would be referenced below?If this is the John Waller that marries Elizabeth Curtis, his father would not be a John (I think Edmund).So would he be referred to as a Jr. if his father's name is not John as well?I'm still trying to find the John Waller who'e daughter, Elizabeth, marries James Pritchett.
Thanks for any help you might offer,
