She was the mother of four by her first marriage: John, James, Nancy, and Lowry. She was appointed guardian of the latter two in Fauquier County, VA, on July 24, 1819; securities John Cave. John Ra(i)l(e)y may have been the son of Thomas Railey whose will was probated October 28, 1811 in Fauquier County, VA. If any of these names figure in your research, please contact me.
