The death cert. of her daughter, Carrie Dodgen Bledsoe, names her mother Lizzie
Bell KOON. [1919 - Death cert. #22621, Saluda Co, SC] posted earlier.

I have more on the Dodgen and Kemp lines, but I don't know who J. M. Adams is.
Did one of his daughter marry an Adams?


This one was next to the Clay Dodgen cert. I have not gathered much
Quattlebaum info.,
altho I see them all the time in census records: I DO research the early
Jordans as a Mary Jordan b. Bet. 1794 - 1804 d. Bef. 1840, d/o John Jordan ( ca
1776 - July 21, 1851) & unknown married my Elijah Holloway (1797-1869). But I
don't have Epsie in my files.
