Fretwell

FRETWELL, HENDERSON, KELLY, COBB, BURROW, BARROW, MIMS, SCOTT
PRICE, HARRIS, SEALE

     My wife's line is:
Josiah MIMS b.ca.1800, d.1848 Pike Co., GA
    m.1832 Pike Co., GA  Elizabeth FRETWELL b.11 Aug 1817
                                    d.10 Jun 1900 Nacogcoches, TX
    MIMS
    Kids: Ransom Elliot b.1833
          Lemuel Preston
          Amanda Josephine m. Lucien PRICE
          Julia Ann m. Jimmy HARRIS
          son
          Mary Jane m. Allen SEALE
          Willian Newton Pickens
          Joseph Harrison b.1847
Elizabeth's father was a revolutionary soldier in GA.  (JRD:  So he
may have been born before 1760, but that would make him 57 or older
when Elizabeth was born.)

     Elizabeth's probable parents are:
William FRETWELL b.1775/1800, d.1822 Greene Co. GA, m. Anna
   1822 Will lists wife and children.
   1832 Anna and son Cullen in Pike Co., GA
   1859 Suit of FRETWELL vs. NEAL in Anderson Dist., SC lists all
   these children except Cullen and names Betsy as Eliz MIMS, widow.
   H=Hancock Co., P=Pike Co.
   Cullen A.            m.1827 H.Co.,GA Elizabeth HENDERSON
   James
   William       -1858
   John
   Nancy                m.1834 P.Co.,GA William M. KELLY
   Julia                m.              Edward COBB
   Amanda               m.              John BURROW/BARROW
   Elizabeth            m.              _______ MIMS
   Daniel        -1858
   Sally                m.              Benjamin SCOTT
 
     Other very sketchy hypothesis are:
William FRETWELL 170?-1788 Cumberland Co., VA
  James FRETWELL  left Cumberland Co., VA in 1803, both d.aft.1820
    Micaiah H. FRETWELL ca.17??-1814, m. Jane d.bef.1820
      Nancy     1806
      Robert    1808
      Albert A. 1810
      Mary Ann  1812
    William FRETWELL    ca.1775-1822 of GA, m. Anna

     Does anyone recognize either of these lines.  Can you help verify
or correct it for me?  I need your help.
