Researching Hubby’s 5x Great Grand Mother

On Wednesday we’re headed to Morganton Nc. We are going to visit the Burke County Library’s Genealogy Society Room to do some family history research. We’re hoping that we can locate more information on Hubby’s 5x Great Grandmother, Betsy Garrish. We are interested in finding her parents, her birth date and were she was born. We know that she married Rueben Leatherwood in 1822 in Morganton, Nc but we don’t know if she grew up there. Hopefully this trip will enable us to learn more about Betsy’s and her husband’s families.

Then we’ll stop at that really good southern style restaurant, Abeles Restaurant, which has the best buffet — Hubby loves their cooking.
