Elizaberh West vs Elizabeth Graddy

For as long as I have been doing genealogy the elusive Elizabeth West was touted as John Sheffield's first wife. She was not. John's first wife was Nancy Turner, daughter of John Turner of Northampton, Nancy is found in his will. Along with wife Mary, and sister Louise. Elizabeth Graddy was John's second wife. She was the widow of John Graddy.

The following was post helps clear up the confustion of Elizabeth West Graddy:

John and Mary Whitield Graddy had a grandson (son of William Graddy, my ggg-grandfather), John Graddy who was the one killed at Moore's Creek Bridge.

Now here is where the Elizabeth West comes in:

Elizabeth West was this John Graddy's mother. She was my ggg-grandmother. I hope this helps to clear up the Elizabeth West conflict. Ken krorie@ipa.net

Thank you Ken!
