 Vol. IV, Summer 1976, No. 3, p.177 -
 
 Died - In this District on the ____ October last, Mrs. Elizabeth Ligon, widow of Blackmon Ligon, deceased, in the 89th year of her age. The deceased was, with her family, among the earliest (settlers) of the District from Virginia… She was for many years, prior to her death a member of the Baptist Church.
 
Together they were the parents of 8 children - Mary, Nancy, John T., Elizabeth, Blackman, William B., Joe, and Batts.  
Nancy married a Mr. Moon, John T. married Frances E. Young, Blackman married Nancy Moon, William B., married Eliza Lawn.  Those not mentioned I have nothing more on. 
 
Do you have connections to this LIGON line?  I'd love to hear from you. I have more on the ancestry and descendantts and I'd be happy share!
