Re: Martha Jane Carwile Nelson
From the Autauga County, Alabama Orphans Court, 7 Sept 1846. The will of David Carwile was presented to the court by Zachariah Carwile. The court papers listed his heirs that lived in Alabama but also ordered the publication in the Montgomery Advertiser a notice to the non-resident heirs of the estate. Among those listed was JANE NELSON, wife of WM NELSON. This led me to believe that Martha Jane was a daughter of David Carwile.
William David Carwile, b. 15 Dec 1773, d. before 7 Sept 1846 in Autauga Co., Alabama was my 3rd great-grandfather.
It is believed that he came to Alabama around 1820-1830.
I show as his children:
Margaret Malisse (Robert H. Johnson)
John T. (Mary) my 2nd great-grandfather
Zachariah (Harriett Floyd)
Sarah (Neal Harrel)
Mary (George Livingston)
Elizabeth (John Irvin)
Martha Jane (William Nelson)
All of these are mentioned in the estate papers. It appears that part of the family migrated to Alabama and some, like Martha Jane who was probably already married or about to be married when the migration took place, remained in South Carolina.
In passing, some of the information on William David's family in "the book" is in error based on my findings in Autauga County. I'll try to upload my findings soon.
