Citations 1.Some sources feel David may have the name Thomas as either a middle or first name. Some think his middle initial may be 'M'. However, his will has his name only as David Satterwhite.

I have received a correspondence from Dovie Kaupke, a long time Satterwhite researcher. The following is from her: (Quote) "According to documentation I have, David was born abt. 1766 - Census Records and title to first headright in GA. We know his wife's name was Rebecca, but there is absolutely no proof that it was Willingham. Also any papers that I have, never even gives a middle initial for David. He received a headright of 200 acres in 1787 in Richmond County, Georgia. This later became Columbia County. In order to complete a headright you had to live on it and improve it. He received only 200 acres, which is what a single person would receive. If he had been married, he would have received 50 acres more for each child and wife. David also served on the jury in Columbia County in 1797 which proves that he was living and a solid citizen of this county. He lived there until 1805." (End Quote).

I believe Dovie to be a credible source. Therefore I have removed the surname for Rebecca who married David Satterwhite. I agree with Dovie's research in the way that headrights were given. Because of this, I now wonder if Amy Anna, born 1785, may be linked to the wrong parents. David and Rebecca would have been married after 1787.

Since I have not been in the place to research our very earliest ancestors myself, I take no credit for the data on them.
