Another thing...my great grandmother Margaret Alice Greene was the daughter of Nancy Cathleen Rutherford and William Pennington Greene.

Nancy's mother was Elizabeth "Betsy" Demery Pledger and Betsy's father was referred to by the grandchildren as "Father Pledger" and nothing more. His family was from Granville, N.C. and he died around Sept 4-14th, 1866 in Yell, Arkansas. I think this is Searcy Co. Ark. I have no death date on Betsy's mother Polly. Betsy's parents (the Pledgers) married on Aug 14, 1814 in Elbert Co. GA. before moving on. Perhaps Father Pledger died in Ark on the family's way to Texas. In my photocopies of the diaries, (another cousin has the originals), it says that Father and Mother Pledger died on the same day but I cannot find any evidence of this anywhere else, though I am sure it is true.
