Philpot Family Genealogy Forum
If anyone has any information on Granville Philpot who had children with Elizabeth Woods, I would love to hear from you! The more information I find on Granville, the more confused I become. Most sources are showing his birth year as 1810-1811 in NC. Also, I see lots of death years as 1870. It doesn't make sense, then, if this is the same Granville, that he received a civil war pension in 1883 or that he was on the Veteran Census Schedule for 1890. It stands to reason that the Granville Philpot born abt 1845 is the man who fought in the Civil War and lost his leg, not the Granville who was born in 1810/1811. I also find that Granville was married twice to Sarah "Sallie" Doan & Nancy King McGee. I've found Granville & Nancy and several of the younger children living in Arkansas in the 1870 census. Of course, he may have died that same year, but why would he have died in Indiana, as I've seen some researchers have, and not Arkansas? I also am having difficulty seeing Elizabeth Woods having his illegitimate children at or around the same time he got married to Nancy...not that that could not have happened. Anyway, I've seen nothing yet that helps me link Granville to Elizabeth Woods as the father of her children. Elizabeth was my 2nd great grandmother & I would love to know if I'm also a Philpot!! Thanks for any info you would be willing to provide!!
