Robert S. Ferrell - My 7x Great Grandfather - Virginia/West Virgini

Classification: Query
Surnames: Ferrell, Griggs, Thompson, Kemp, Raitz, Lusby
My link to this line is giving me a headache. I just discovered my link to this line today and it runs through my paternal side through the daughter of Robert Ferrell III & Rebecca Rachel Griggs. I've mapped it out below starting with the original Robert Ferrell.

Robert S. Ferrell (1722 - ???) m. (Hannah) Susan Stone
Robert S. Ferrell II (1740 - 1829) m. Hannah Elizabeth ???
Robert Ferrell III (1774 - 1857) m. Rebecca Rachel Griggs
Elizabeth (Hannah) Ferrell (1797 - 1880) m. George Thompson
John Wesley Thompson (1827 - ???) m. Elizabeth A. Kemp
Francis M. Thompson (1862 - 1932) m. Frank W. Raitz
Edith I. Raitz (1893 - 1946) m. Benjamin Franklin Lusby
Clarence Wesley Lusby (1914 - 1966) m. Elizabeth Armistead Hennings
Alan Franklin Lusby (1941 - Present) m. Carol Ann Sporie
Elizabeth A. Lusby (Betsy) - which would be me.

Now I had some confusion when I got to Elizabeth Ferrell (1797-1880) (dau of Robt III & Rebecca Griggs). On some other trees I looked at, there was also a Hannah with a birth year of 1797/1798 and a death year of 1880). One had an Elizabeth and no Hannah and another had a Hannah and no Elizabeth. So I just made the leap and figured her name was either Elizabeth Hannah or Hannah Elizabeth. With them reusing name so often, it's quite confusion.

With with this information I've provided, can anyone confirm or provide additional information?

I also have a John Ferrell (1705 - 1759) in Ireland m. Marth or Ann who is the father of Robert S. Ferrell (the first one).
