Need help with some confusion. I have an Isham Eads b. 1800 Polaski Co VA, m. Elizabeth Sowder, lived in Ky and IND, died Monroe co IND 1855. My records have parents as Thomas Eads and Elizabeth Alford of VA then KY. ON Ancestry.com there is an Isham with the same birth and death statistics and the same wife, but with parents listed as Henry EAds and Elizabeth Sailers.
Can anyone help clear up the confusion.

Hi,

I have seen several posts of yours lately. There seems to be a lot of confusion on the parents of Isham Eads.

I have Thomas Bailey Eads and wife Elizabeth as his parents. Some people claim she is Elizabeth Rutherford; I have her as Elizabeth Lastly Alford. They had a son Joseph Alford born 1781.

I saw your post where you listed a will for a Salvador Alford with a daughter Elizabeth Eads in Bedford Co, VA Nov 1777. You also mentioned a marriage for Thomas and Elizabeth in 1775 in Campbell Co, VA. This is impossible as Campbell was not formed until 1781. I am checking into other counties.

Thomas was the older brother of my ancestor Anne Eads Cannifax.
