Ellen, Thanks! I have been trying to make the connection to Elizabeth Brett also. I suspected that she must have been an older 1/2 sister to John Watts Brett. The only siblings that I have found on LDS are Martha "Patsie" Brett, Jesse Brett, John Brett (older brother to John Watts Brett). I could find no documentation on her though in terms of dates, birth certificate or mother's name. She doesn't seem to exist until the marriage to Jason Fair Banks Callaway, 18 years Amanda's senior. The name is sometimes spelled Britt in the old documents. I have read that although it was spelled Brett it was originally pronounced Britt causing the phonetic confusion when clerks wrote the name they thought they were hearing. Sometimes its Britt and sometimes Brett.
