Fourth Generation

64. Sarah WALTERS33 was born in 1796 in Pittsylvania County, Virginia.

The manuscript file found in the library in Paris, Henry Co TN, had this Sarah placed in the family of John & Rhoda Walters, who also lived in Grainger Co along with Obadiah's family. She's a bit too old to belong to John & Rhoda and I'm sure she was Obadiah's daughter.

Grainger Co marriages:
Hagner Bray to Sally "Waters" on 12 Aug 184. Henry Bray, Bondsman.

This couple is about the right age.
