I have only recently been told that my great grandmother (Sarah Ledford) was born Sarah L. Gitchell. According to census data she was born in Georgia in May 1855. She must have married my great grandfather (William Hamilton Ledford) about 1871 since her first son was born that year. According to my math she would have been 16 at that time. I have tried to put the Gitchell name in North Georgia but have been unsuccessful to date. I tend to believe that her maden name might have been Mitchell and someone misread a script capital G as an M. Any way if anyone reading this forum has any info that would put the Gitchell name around Murray or Whitfield Counties in extreem North Georgia around the 1850's PLEASE reply. Thanks!
