My mother was a Fautt. I started tracing backwards, and it appears the family name was Faught until the early/mid 1800s. Does this make sense? The lineage I have, if it's right is like this:
Samuel Faught (1790-1857)
Madison T. Fautt (1843-1916)
William Madison Fautt Sr. (1860-1910)
William Madison Fautt Jr. (1886-1949)
Horace B. Fautt (1912-1978)
Betsy J. Fautt (1935-2010)
Does this sound right? Or have I strayed from the Fautt path somewhere back in the early 1800s?
