I know that Alexander Esselman was her father, he was born in NC abt 1802. His parents were James Esselman and Ann Campbell from Scotland. As far as Alexander`s wives, the only one I have a name for is Rebecca. At the cementery where Alexander is buried there is an Elizabeth Esselman born 1791 and died 1842, don`t know if she is a sister to Alexander or his lst. wife. I don`t know when he married Rebecca King. When Alexander died Josiah Dugger was Mary E., Laura Ann, Rebecca and William`s guardian. I see you have a Dugger in your line.
