Do you think Margaret Apple Ditty's parents were Madison Apple. If this can be proved....then possibly proof can be made that Madison and Antany Apple were brothers.
WikiTree profile: Margaret Ditty
in Genealogy Help by
I have improved and added sources for the Margaret Apple Ditty profile (link above), so that now the sources have hyper links taking the reader directly to external links and with footnotes linking each bit of information to its respective source. Margaret certainly was the daughter of a Madison Apple born in TN within a year or two of 1815.
Thank you for that confirmation. Now if I could just prove Madison and Anthony were indeed brothers. Everyone thinks they were but no proof has come forth. Anthony and 2nd wife Louisa had Jasper Anthony. When Anthony and Louisa "disappear" or die, after 1850 then their child Jasper Anthony joins Civil War. Children by 1st wife (Newton, Elizabeth and William) - Elizabeth and William go to live with Allison family and marry into that family brother and sister which tells me Apple parents were dead. Newton older brother goes to California gold rush. Madison the Uncle seems to stay in Tennessee. Allison and Apple brother sister married teams come to Texas in 1859 and appear on 1860-1970 census. William and Elizabeth Apple who have married into Allison family come to Texas with Allison family patriarch and settle in North Texas ---McKinney and Lone Oak area. I can find no land records in Tennesse for Anthony and Louisa so quite possibly they rented land, or records burned up during Civil War since most Courts were burned in Tennessee.

selected by Sandra Davidson are genius... I would love it if Madison and Antany could be proven brothers. I have long thought they were. Madison and Antany are sons of David who is son of Daniel, revolutionary war patriot, which I am trying too prove. Antany and wife Louisa, disappear after 1850 census in Smith, Tennessee. I believe they died together, maybe of disease.  My email is listed, but if you can't find it...I will post it.  Thanks....I am working on Daniel's dad who is Johan Adam Apple trying to prove that Johan Martin Apple is his brother. Johan Martin's descendent is Thomas Gilmore Apple 1829-1898 who was chancellor of Franklin University, of which was founded by Benjamin Franklin, so the Apple family was very patriotic.
Here is the FAG Memorial for David Apple...

and then the memorial for his wife Mary...
The son above Anthony Apple is not my 1808 born Anthony. This kid young when he died in Civil War, died of infection. I wish I knew where this child's parents are so I could connect them. My Anthony would have been 42 years old in 1850 and is listed on the census, so we have two Anthony Apples.....
