This Elizabeth Folkes (also a direct ancestor of mine) was the daughter of Edward Folkes, Sr. and Elizabeth (surname unknown so far). Edward left a will in Chesterfield Co, VA, Dale parish, dated 20-Dep-1783, in which he mentioned:

daughters Elizabeth Pleasants, Sarah Burton, Katharine Walker, Mary Reade
sons William, Baxter, Edward
wife Elizabeth

I am currently researching his ancestry. There was a John Folkes in Henrico/Chesterfield Co, but it does not appear that he was the father of Edward, Sr. It's possible Edward came from Goochland Co. If you learn of anything, please fill me in.
