Thank you for the information. This has led me to find that Jotham Bedelll built what was later called the Alice C. Plantation (named by a subsequent owner) located on Hwy 182 near Garden City. This was his residence from 1846 until his death in 1859.
I am actually trying to trace two of his daughters Martha Jane and Emily who were Aunts of my great grandmother, Margaret Garrett Oakes. I found that Martha (1844-1929) married Capt. William Richardson Collins in 1866. Emily (Emilie )I know nothing about and therefore she might be a link. I don't see how they fit in as I was looking for a possible relation between them and the Garrett family. I am guessing that the term "Aunt" may be one of affection rather than relation.
