Isaac Rowe WALTON (1719-1770) married Elizabeth LEDBETTER (1730-1802) of
Brunswick County, VA. Elizabeth was the d/o Henry LEDBETTER and Elizabeth
WILLIAMSON of White Oak Swamp, Brunswick Co., VA and the sister of a Henry
LEDBETTER (1728-1794) who married Winifred WALL. I do not have any other
details on this bunch, as relates to Fishing Creek.
Elizabeth's brother Charles LEDBETTER married Frances RANDLE and a widow,
JOHNSON. Frances died in Stanley County, NC, according to the information I
saw on her. No other details on Frances were available but this RANDLE
information sure seems to put this bunch down in Greene County, GA, doesn't
it? The WILLIAMSON information also puts them in the same bed with the
LAMARS, BIRDS and others in GA, too.
A lot of Anson County, NC return addresses around this bunch.

Grace, and had the assurance thst he himself was in a state of
A footnote states: The Minutes of the Kehukee Associaation, p 11, indicate
that it was for moral delinquency that Daniel was silenced. This is
corraborated by Burkitt and Read's statement, Kehukee Association, 235.
It appears that many of the earlier Baptist churches advocated allowing
prospective member to be immersed (Baptized) whereas Charles, Thomas
believed no immersion could take place until there was a full
You are aware from your property research that Charles, Thomas, Edmond and
Eustace DANIEL all held property along Fishing Creek in Halifax County.
As to where and when Thomas married Sarah BURNEY I speculate that it was

DANIEL of Halifax".
The reference to Col. William Horn took place in 1755 at the time of
in the church.
Susannah REED'S (READ) will was in Halifax County, NC. Susannah's maiden
name was FULGHAM and she was out of a prominent Isle of Wight family as
first husband Henry WEST.
The Edmond DANIEL with spouse Alice died in Granville Cty., NC abt 1755.
was listed on a 1753 tax list with son Hustis and below them a Thomas

group but I have been unable to tie it together.
