Name: Edith Wadlow
Death: AFT 1796
Change Date: 13 FEB 2014
Edith's maiden name is proven by this deed. The sale of the land had restrictions placed on it by the will of William Hatcher, namely that his (apparent) granddaughters had to receive some payment from said sale. William Hatcher's (apparent) daughter, Martha, was married to Thomas Wadlow. This site has a good summary of the Wadlow family (and it is mentioned that Martha was reportedly a Hatcher...this deed seems to prove that, too!) http://www.planetmurphy.org/content/body/WadlowThomas.htm
