Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Your Maternal Grandfather's Matrilineal Line

From Randy over at Genea-Musings:

it's Saturday Night 
time for more Genealogy Fun!!!

Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to:

(1) What was your mother's father's full name?

(2)  What is your mother's father's matrilineal line? That is, his mother's mother's mother's... back to the most distant female ancestor in that line.  Provide her ahnentafel number (relative to you), her birth and death years, and places.

(3) Tell us about it in your own blog post, in a comment to this blog post, or in a post on Facebook.

Here's mine:

(1)  My maternal grandfather was #6, Charles Morgan Tapley (1907-1973).

(2)  Charles's mother was #13, Mattie Schwalls (1877-1912). Mattie was born in Georgia, married Lusion Keman Tapley in 1903 in Johnson County, Georgia, and died in Johnson County, Georgia.  

Mattie's mother was #27, Lincelia "Celia" E. Claxton (1839-1882).  Lincelia was born in Edgefield County, South Carolina.  She married George W Schwalls Sr in 1866 in Edgefield County, South Carolina.  She died in Georgia.

Lincelia Claxton's mother was #55,  Lincelia "Lincely" Bush (1806-1872).  Lincelia was born in Edgefield, Edgefield, South Carolina.  She married Zachariah William Claxton in 1823 in Edgefield, Edgefield, South Carolina.  She died in Johnson County, Georgia.

Lincelia Bush's mother was #111, Mary Frances Miller (1785-1857).  Mary was born in South Carolina.  She married John Bibby Bush in 1800 in Edgefield County, South Carolina.  She died in Edgefield County, South Carolina.

Mary Frances's mother was #223, Martha Martin (1762-1864).  Martha was born in Abbeville, Abbeville, South Carolina.  She married Jacob Miller, date and location unknown.  She died in South Carolina.

Other than the migration to the south, these ladies tended to stay  where they were born.  

I actually was able to find Martha Martin thanks to this blog post and  So I was able to take the family back one generation!
