WOW! How wonderful it would be to get a drawing/photo of ASA and Sarah.
ASA could not write his name and signed with an 'X' on several documents. Most of the info I have, showed he did very well, he traveled at age 61 across the country from Fauquier VA to Marion County Mo with 10 slaves.
Where I'm missing info is when he left MD as a young boy and who his parents were.
My DNA matched that of George Calvert (NY) who claimed to descend from William 1757 who was a son of the 6th Lord B. I also match WEST who descends from Henerita Fairfax. So ASA's mother had to of been connected with that Fairfax line.
There was a Kathy England who claimed to descend from ASA and had much info regarding his birth place of Charles County MD. She moved and I have not been able to find her to obtain her information.
I assume you know that James ASA died in Vandalia MO and Nadine Feagon married James in Ralls County MO. I descend from James borther John Waddy. I also have info on Washington Lanty - photos of grave and farm. I only wish I had a photo of him or anyone else for that matter. I have a photo of Clarence Edmon - son of John Waddy. I have Wash L. Will. If you want copies I'll send them to you.
It's very possible that the mother-Fairfax was an affair but then he had a step-mother. That tells me that there probably a marriage or why would the word step-mother even be used. Feagon is an old name I've seen in much research.
Am I correct that you descend from James and Nadine. I think I said before that they are buried in Shelby county. That is incorrect. It was Saline County and cemetery but I'm not sure. I may be thinking of John Robert who married a Griffith. There is a McDaniel who desends from that line that posts on the Calvert board.
If you have the family history of W.L, I knew the Vowles and Braggs.
After talking about James ASA. I may be mixing him up with the son of John Robert. It gets mind boggling after awhile.
