I also found this as relates to the LEDBETTERS. Charles LEDBETTER (b. 1740
in Brunswick County, VA) was the son of Henry LEDBETTER and Edith WILLIAMSON
and he must have married a Frances RANDLE from what I see here. If so, then
the family of France's uncle James RANDLE I bounces right into this whole
bunch in Greene and Hancock County, GA, via of James RANDLE II and Rosanna
GRAVES family. Looking a little clearer, now....
What do you want to bet the Charles name we see came from the LEDBETTERS?
Charles Ledbetter and wife Frances on Jan. 25, 1764 deeded land to
Jeckonias Randle (He was her uncle, born in King William County, May 1,
1710, son of John Randle and Mary Johns). On Nov. 2, 1774 Charles
Ledbetter and Frances sold their land in Brunswick County and "refugeed"
from Tories to what was then Anson County, North Carolina, later
Montgomery County. At about the same time his brother Drury Ledbetter
and many related families left Brunswick and settled in the same
direction. Among these were Randles, Ledbetters, Davidsons, Prichards,
Quinceys, Johnsons, Laniers and Tillmans.
Charles was also a Reverend who came to Tennessee from Virginia in 1790
Charles and Frances moved from Brunswick County, Virginia to Montgomery
County, North Carolina shortly before the American Revolution.

that it was for moral delinquency that Daniel was silenced. This is
corraborated by Burkitt and Read's statement, Kehukee Association, 235.

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

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

The Edmond DANIEL with spouse Alice died in Granville Cty., NC abt 1755.

group but I have been unable to tie it together.
