Hi all ,
I meant to post thsi sooner, but I had a major problem with retrieving my password from Genealogy.com.
I think I may have the answer you are looking for. The Elizabeth Bedinger who was married to John Thornton Augustine Washington was the daughter of Daniel Bedinger. Daniel was the son of Henry(Heinrich) Bedinger Sr. He was the brother of the Bedinger from whom I descend, Henry Bedinger(Jr.) as well as the brother of George Michael Bedinger. Henry Jr. was my gggg-Grandfather.
JTA Washington was the grandson of George Washington’s eldest brother, Samuel.
I obtained this data from a book that has been handed down to me from my Grandmother, Louise Meredith. She was the daughter of Henry Bedinger Swearingen Jr., my g-grandfather. He was cited as a researcher in the book “History of the Davenport Family” which I have in my possession. I believe it was published in 1947 or 8. It is a compilation of several family lines related to the Davenports.
The current owner (as of a few years ago anyway) of the farm where Henry Jr. is buried is one Henry Bedinger Davenport III. I believe the farm is called Altona (if memory serves). It is near Shepherdstown, WV.
