Thanks so much for getting in touch. I've been looking at Martha Jane Seigler Mays and her husband Andrew for quite a while, but haven't made a lot of headway. A number of years ago I was in touch with a couple of descendants of Andrew and Martha J., but they hadn't been able to confirm who the parents of either were. All I know is that:
* they both were born in SC,
* Andrew served in Company K, 52nd Regiment, Georgia Volunteer Infantry from Franklin County, GA
* since 1-year-old Thomas was the first child born in GA, they must have been in SC until about 1859
*next door was John Robert Seigler, son of John Seigler (and probably an earlier wife, maybe not Permelia) and his family so there must be a Seigler family connection
* and, the names that Andrew and Martha J. give their children (except for Andrew!) are the same names that occur in the John Seigler family (the woman who I suspect is Permelia's mother was Martha Jane Gilmer).
I would love to share any information at al that you might have about the Mays. Do you have any idea who Elizabeth Smith was (the 80-year-old who was living with them in Franklin County)?
