Nancy Rutledge, born about 1792 (in Oglethorpe County GA?) married Edward Echols/Eccles/Eckles in Oglethorpe County, GA Dec. 23, 1819.

Her brother, Thomas Rutledge, married Nancy Echols in Oglethorpe County, GA October 30, 1799.

I have read that her sister, Sally, also married someone named Echols.

In the 1800 census for Oglethorpe Co, GA, James Eachols [sic], James Rutledge, and John Rutledge are listed living next to each other. James Echols Sr. also lived in Oglethorpe Co. GA in the 1800 census but not nearby.

At some point they appear to have moved to Hinds County, MS?

In 1841, Edward Eckles received a land grant of 160 acres in West Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana, which he apparently sold to Dr. Valentine Peyton in 1846. Edward Eckels died in 1850.

Had at least one son, William E. Echols, also lived in Louisiana, Parish of West Baton Rouge, and was a planter. According to the 1850 US census, he was born in Alabama and was 24. Died in 1859, spouse Aurore Babin. His probate records list Laura Ann, Sarah Eliza and Emily Pauline Eckles as children.

Another possible? son, Edward, was a physician, and is seen in 1850 Hinds County census, aged 38, married to Mary Ann (22), children William M. (6), Martha J. (3) and Edward W. (1).

Had two daughters, according to probate records.

The older daughter, Harriet (born in Georgia?), married Dr. Valentine Peyton in 1839 (reportedly in Hinds County, Mississippi). Valentine Peyton, originally from Virginia, also lived in Hinds County, MS. They moved to Pointe Coupee Parish, LA.

The 1850 US census for West Baton Rouge Parish shows Nancy Eckles, 50, living with William Eckles, 24, and Harriet Peyton, 28, along with Harriet’s children.

The younger daughter, Sarah F. Eckles, married George M. Hamilton, of West Baton Rouge Parish, LA.

These three children and the mother were still alive on January 29, 1857, as they all executed a document in the land records.

on Nov 27,1850 census records for Hinds County, MS E. W. Eckles 28 Physician b VA has in his house Mary Ann 22 b MS, William J. 6 b MS, Martha M. 3 b MS, Edward W. 1 b MS and Laura 5 b MS.

Then on that same census date there is a William J. Eckles 42 Planter b VA and Sara A. Eckles 20 b AL

It could be that these are 2 different families since some are from VA and the others AL

I don't know the maiden name for Mary Ann as of yet, but after E. W. dies she married Watson S. Satcher and she is living next to William J. Eckles and Sarah with 5 children in Hinds County, MS listed on the Aug 22, 1860 census records.
