I have Cornelius Whittington marrying Rebecca Gilliam in 1829 in Amite, MS. However, the children I have listed were born before this marriage. Who was he married to before Rebecca? or do I have the wrong Cornelius?
The children are James b 1775, John W b 1777 (my line), Mary b 1781, Aaron b 1783, Winneford b 1784, Elam b. 1786, Moses b 1788, Sarah b 1791, Susannah b 1793 and Rebecca b 1795. The oldest two - James and John - were born in SC and the others born in GA.
I know the line of children are correct but beginning to wonder if I have them attached to the wrong family Can anybody help me sort this family and determine who the mother of the children was? Or is Rebecca Gilliam actually the mother but the marriage date is wrong?
