Hi Cuz!

I just started re-focusing on my paternal genealogy this morning and lo and behold, here is your query from last year. Elizabeth "Betsy" Demery Pledger Rutherford was the daughter of James Pledger and Mary "Polly" Ford of Elbert Co. GA. Unfortunately, this county has nearly no online resources yet so we are limited to what we can find through others at the moment. James was born on Jan 21, 1788 to Thomas Pledger Sr. and his wife, Nancy Levister (sp? Leavistor, Levestor, etc.) in Granville Co. N.C. I am trying to find additional info on her mother Mary "Polly" Ford at the moment and will get this to you when I can. I am descended from this family through my paternal grandfather- Nolan Joyce. His mother was Alice Greene Joyce who was the granddaughter of Betsy Pledger and Hugh Jackson Rutherford. What (if anything) can you share about them? Do you have any photos? I know that Elizabeth was born in 1826 and died on Feb 20, -I have 1870 and you have 1880. This information came from my grandfather's diary and his mother's diary also. Her diary reflects Hugh died on Oct 28, 1897. I will try to confirm this somewhere. Email me at or post reply here.
