Brick wall: Elizabeth Savage, South Carolina ~1824-1880

+2 votes
Elizabeth Savage was born in about 1824 in South Carolina and married Daniel Lavender in Georgia in 1847.  I'm trying to find her parents or any records pre-1847.  In 1850, Martha and James Savage lived with Elizabeth and Daniel and are presumably relatives (siblings of Elizabeth?) but I have not been able to document their relationship.

I have several DNA matches on Ancestry that descend from Jeremiah Savage (Savage-4353, 1770-1852), so it seems likely that she is related to him.  Given the ages he could be her father or grandfather.  I have been unable to find any supporting records, though.  Any suggestions?

    Thank you!!  It doesn't help with her earlier history, but I hadn't found her death record.  Interesting that it says that she and her parents were born in Georgia, when earlier census records say South Carolina, but that could just be an error by the person reporting her death.
    Many times family helps with this info and probably wrote in wrong.  Still looking for more earlier info for you.
