CLARKE - William G. Scroggins has graciously given permission to include his material on the Clarke family (this material is not in the
The Scroggins Papers).
CALDWELL - Information from William G. Scroggins will be included on this website in the future.
Many of Sarah's descendants (including GKBopp) have become members of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) under Sarah's father, Revel Wharton. Additional information about the Wharton side of Sarah's ancestry will be added in the future, including Record of the Wharton Family, an article from The Evening Post, Louisville, KY, August 15, 1903. The article, provided by Miss Susie Green (descendent of James W. English, 4th child of Sarah & Elisha), recounts the Wharton line back to a Hastings' marriage, which in turn links back to David Earl of Huntington, who is said to descend from Duncan I 1035-1039 [who was killed by Macbeth], of the Royal Family of Scotland. There is no documentation, of course!
My database includes over 1,200 descendant related entries for the family of Elisha & Sarah Wharton English; the first five generations are at The English Plantation.
