NOTES:
The book "History of Jones County Georgia" by Carolyn White Williams
contains an article on the Todd and Buckner families. There is no author
credited for this article, and Ms. Williams' house burned after the book
was published, losing all her notes forever, so we are completely at a
loss as to who wrote the piece or what their sources were. Based upon the
content and emphasis of the article it would be prudent to assume that
the source for the Williams' article was a Buckner descendant - most
likely the late Lorena Martin Spillers, who researcher this family
extensively in the 1950s and 1960s. Ms. Spillers died in the 1970s and
left all her genealogical records and notes to her niece, Anita Steele.

It is reported by Anita Steele that there was a bible record of
Benjamin's family in a bible having belonged originally to John B. Todd.
Among her Aunt's partially typed and partially handwritten notes is
this: "from Bible owned by Jn B Todd, published by H.E. Phinney,
Cooperstown, NY, 1829" listing two additional sons of Benjamin and
Rebecca, who died in infancy.

Lorena Spillers notes, via Anita Steel:
"Benjamin TODD, born 1778 Rowan County, NC, died 1855 Jones County, GA;
married (1st) 1798 Wilkes County, GA, Rebecca Montgomery, born
1775-1785 NC, died 1830 Jones County, GA. Benjamin married (2nd) 1841
Charity Kilby, who married (2nd) John Harris. Rebecca was the mother of
all of Benjamin's children. Children: John B., 1799 Wilkes County, GA;
Mary, 1800-1801 Wilkes County, GA; Susan, 1805 Wilkes County, GA;
William Lewis, 1807 Wilkes County, GA; Rebecca, 1812 Jones County, GA;
and Elizabeth, 1814 Jones County, GA."
