OK, here we go folks. My g-g-g-grandmother was Susan Sanders b. in GA in 1816. Susan married William Avery prior to 1840. Their first 3 sons, born in GA were Asa, John and Lewis Melton before they moved to Gadsden Co, FL.
William & Susan finally settled in Dothan, AL and are buried together at Piney Grove Methodist Cemetery.

Susan's mother was Rebecca Sanders based on a letter written by Rebecca in June of 1853. In the letter, Rebecca mentions possible family members, Wynna (Winifred?), Mathew and Jim. Rebecca also mentions local neighbor's surnames of the Greens, Dissons and Jesus.

Does any of this sound familiar?
Thanks in advance.
