Chandler. I have almost no information of my own on the Fortson family except that researched by others. I am reading a Bartlett Database from 2002 Genforum and that web site states that a
William Thomas Fortson, b. 19 Dec. 1802 in Elberton, Elbert Co.Ga. m. Sarah H. Shackelford in 1821 in Ga.
He m.Nancy Johnson in 1847 in Caddo Parish , La. and m. Elizabeth Hall between 1851 and 1860 in La.
William T. Fortson died 16 July 1866 in De Soto Parish, La.

However, if you read the entire entry, it is very confusing as to birth and death dates of those mentioned.

Could this be your William? Or has another Elizabeth Hall also married this William T. Fortson?

I can see where you are puzzled also.
