The Thomas Madison Family Record as recorded in "Reminiscences of Eastern Oregon", by Mrs. Elizabeth Lord (1903), page 231, states - "Thomas Madison died January 20, 1754; Joanah Madison, his wife, died April 13, 1758." The Author's maiden name was Laughlin. She was descended from Thomas Laughlin who married Sarah Madison, on November 27, 1755. On page 231 the author states the birth dates of all of children of Thomas Madison including "Sarah Madison, born February 29, 1735."
I have been informed that Joanah/Joanna, wife of Thomas Madison was Joanna Buckner, daughter of Samuel Buckner (d. 1744) and Martha Ellis. Can anybody confirm these allegations? Does anybody know the primary source of Joanna's maiden name. If she is a Buckner, does anybody have the primary source for her parents' names and vital details?
