Sorry to be so long in getting back to you. I moved and changed e-mail address.Yes. That Elizabeth is the same one. Her parents were William Roach and Martha Jackson. Martha's father was Josiah Jackson whos will was dated 3 Sept 1786 and his wife Elizabeth. According to several Wills, Josiah had 2 brothers, Benjamin and Joel. In a court order dated 14 Aug 1820 it was ordered that Martha Roach be appointed guardian of Carter Josiah Jackson Roach, Elizabeth Ann Roach and Martha William Roach, orphan children of William Roach. A year later the guardian is changed to David G. Williams. Don't know why this happened.I had originally thought that Carter married Dolly Westbrook, but in looking back at the record, it says Carter Jackson, not Roach, married Dolly, so I have that part wrong. However, Elizabeth did marry James Winn and Martha married a Mr. John Dowdy. In a will written in 1833, a Carter Roach of Campbell Co., VA leaves his estate to his mother, Martha Roach. and when Martha Roach died (her will dated 1837) she left her estate to Elizabeth and Martha. Something must have happened in the family for a new guardian to have been named and also that Elizabeth Ann Jackson Roach went by the name of Elizabeth Ann Jackson on several occasions.Also, there is a note that in 1790 Martha and Carter Jackson , orphans of Josiah, buy 121 acres from Benjamin Jackson as Executor of Josiah's will. Therefore, I think that Martha's brother (not son) was the one who married Dolly in 1805. the person acting as surity for Carter and Dolly is a Stewart Jackson who is the son of Benjamin Jackson...Josiah's brother. I know this is long and involved..hope you can follow it.
