I'm not researching the Derring family, but while researching my Hazelwood family the following information was found. Joseph Stallings is identified as the husband of Sarah Hazelwood's sister, Lucy.

Sarah's first husband is Emelius Derring who died before 18 Dec 1792. Joseph Stallings, Sarah's brother-in-law returned guardian accounts for the orphaned Derring children.

Sarah's last marriage that I have found is to Anson Edwards, and Sarah is named as Sally Hardy. I wasn't positive that this was Sarah Hazelwood until I found corroborating records in the Virginia Genealogical Society Quarterly. I have found next to nothing on Anson Edwards, but what I have found has listed his first name as Anson, L'Anson, I'Anson, J'Anson and Jamson. Anson Edwards is dead before 3 June 1799.
