I need information on William Ledbetter and his son, Martin S. Ledbetter. William lived in Bedford Co.,TN and bought land in Tippah Co. He left his wife, Anna in TN. Did he remarry? Son Martin, came to MS and married there, surely around Tippah Co. I cannot find out who he married. Two of his siblings lived in Tippah Co.,around 1850. They were Madison Ledbetter and wife Margaret and Winifred Ledbetter Jones, wife of Wiley Jones. It is told that Martin and two of his boys started out for TX and on the way there, Martin died. Shortly after Martin's death, his wife died. One son, Martin S. Ledbetter, age 4, went to live with his aunt Winifred Jones and the other son, William H. Ledbetter, 8, went to live with his uncle, Madison Ledbetter. I have no idea what happened to the other children, except for my great grandfather, Jesse Mercer Ledbetter, who stayed in Bedford Co.,TN and lived with his namesake and uncle, Jesse Mercer Ledbetter. I would really appreciate some help with the wife of Martin S. Ledbetter and also the other children who were orphaned. Martin was born about 1816 in Pendleton District, SC, and was the son of William and Anna Stanley Ledbetter. Thanks, Darla.
