John Brittle & Elizabeth

Sally’s great-great-great-great-great-great Grandparents?:

John Brittle – 1780 | his parents
& ? [Elizabeth] – bef 1778 | her parents
of Surry Co, VA &
Northampton County, NC


This is my working hypothesis – the way I see it as of this moment!!


H’mmm. Could this be the father of Sarah the wife of John Brown of Cuttawhiskey Marsh?
