Wedding Wednesday - Ansley & Lavender (1824)

Judge James Lavendar and Malinda Ansley were married 22 July 1824.  Some sources show it to be Henry County, Georgia, others show it to be Warren County, Georgia. 

Judge Lavendar was born 29 OCT 1802 in Spalding County, Georgia and died 20 JAN 1863. 

Malinda Ansley was the daughter of Thomas Ansley (1767-1837) and his wife, Henrietta Ragland (1777-1837).  She was born 8 JUN 1805 in Warren County, Georgia and died 23 August 1865 in Spalding County, Georgia.

The burial location for Judge James & Malinda Ansley Lavendar is currently unknown to me. 

Judge Lavendar did leave behind a will** in which he does name his wife & children.


In his will he names children - Eliza T., William R., Mary B, Martha J., Carrie M., Griffin F., Melinda H., Adeline E., and Melvina M.
