I have found conflicting info on the Elizabeth Jackson married to Miles
Jefferson Langley,, on pages 500-501 EDWARD JACKSON FAMILY in book History
of Gwinnett County Georgia, 1818-1960 Vol II by J C Flanigan, it states
Elizabeth Anne Jackson, was a daughter of Seaborn and Juda Waldrip Jackson,
not a sister of Seaborn Jones Jackson ...
Edward Jackson married twice, #1, Charity Polly Hill, in Cheraws, SC, leaves
four children of Edward and Charity unknown, married #2, Mary "Polly" Hall,
leaving the seventh child unknown named. Which wife was the mother of
Elizabeth Jackson, married to Miles ( ? Jefferson) Langley b. 1809 ?
However, on pages 524-525, same book, LANGLEY FAMILY, by Mrs Henry M Cox,
names a Miles Langley born 1809, GA. married Elizabeth unknown ( this Miles
Langley being a son of Thomas Langley ((probably of NC)) and unknown...
also names Miles Jefferson Langley b. 1830, ( a son of Thomas T Langley and
Frances Bennett ), married Elizabeth Ann Jackson, daughter of Seaborn Jones
and Juda Waldrip Jackson. So now my question is, was the Miles Langley born
1809 married to Elizabeth (Unknown) now known as Elizabeth "Jackson",
actually named Miles "Jefferson" Langley as well ?
Goes on to state Miles Langley b. 1809, married to Elizabeth Unknown had
issue: Martha (b. 1830), Lucretia (b 1833), Emily (b 1840), Americus (b.
1841) Isaac (b. 1845), Willis S (b. 1847), Elijah (b. 1849), Mary, and
Lydia. Is this correct?
In all entries for Juda her maiden name is spelled as Waldrip, should it be
I have been trying to unravel these families for years...
