Nathaniel West Dandridge, Sr. m. 1st Dorothea Spotswood, daughter of Gov. Alexander Spotswood of Virginia. Nathaniel died 16 Jan 1786 in Hanover County, VA. "Virginia Migrations Hanover County" establishes that N. W. Sr. is the father of Nathaniel West Dandridge, Jr. and is the grandfather of Jr.'s son, Nathaniel Watson (called "Watson") Dandridge who died in Texas after the 1870 federal census. Am trying to make contact with family members who are either members of the Spotswood Family Descendants organization, or who have documented information on Watson Dandridge and wife Eliza G. Moore, who was his first cousin. My husband is descended from this line through his great-great grandmother, Martha F. Dandridge, daughter of Watson and Eliza. Martha was born 22 Jan 1826 in Rollins, Madison County, TN according to family tradition, Bible, and census records. Martha died on 11 Dec 1872 in Memphis, Shelby County, TN and is buried in the old Elmwood Cemetery. There is often confusion between my husband's N. W. Dandridge and a cousin of the same name who settled with his family in Pontotoc county, MS. Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I'll be glad to exchange.
