Lydia is the daughter of Thomas and Hannah. She married Meshack Davis, in about 1774 in Rowan County[1]

Research Notes

This Lydia most likely has a different Thomas Bentley as her father. Currently, when saving there is a warning:

A father's death date (Bentley-1095 died 1746) should not be more than nine months before one of his children's birth dates (Bentley-1066 born 1755) .

If and when her father is changed this message should go away.

See the Bentley Name Study section Three Similar Thomas profiles for more information about Lydia's father and mother.

Gilmer, GA is now Fannin, GA.[2]
