  1. It should be noted that this is for William Redd, son of Whitaker Redd Sr. (not William Redd, father of Whitaker Redd Sr.) Our records indicate her name was Sarah Barlow (though we don’t currently have a specific source for that information).

  2. Thanks for adding the clarification of which William is being referred to here.
