1. 1807, 21 Dec: Elbert Co., GA, Deed Book K, p. 234:
Franklin Co, GA; 21 Dec. 1807, before Joel Yowel, J.P., of Franklin Co., appeared Ann Upshear(sic), wife of Forrester Upshear(sic), & rel. her dower rights. (signed) Ann (x) Upshaw. Wit: Joel Yowell, J.P. Rec. 24 Dec 1807. (Farmer, "Deed Books K-R", page 41-42).

2. 1820 census, Madison Co, GA, page 286 (Forrester Upshaw household): 1 female age 45 & up (b before 1775)

3. 1830 census, McMinn Co, TN, page 197 (Forrester Upshaw household): 1 female age 50-60 (b 1770-1780)

4. 1835, Jan: "Anna Upshaw" joined Alpine Baptist Church, Talladega Co, AL, by letter (Casey W. Arnette, "The Tie that Binds, History of Alpine Baptist Church 1832-1988", Alpine Baptist Church, 1988), page 278.

5. 1836, April: "Anna Upshaw" dismissed from Alpine Baptist Church, Talladega Co, AL, by letter (Casey W. Arnette, "The Tie that Binds, History of Alpine Baptist Church 1832-1988", Alpine Baptist Church, 1988), page 278.

6. 1860, 29 Oct: letter from J.H. Curry of Brush Valley, Bienville Parish, LA, to his sister-in-law, Amanda M. Cox, of Walnut Creek, LA (note: this letter was printed in "The Upshaw Family Journal", Vol. II page 47 & includes the following, which is in reference to either Tabitha (Lawless) Upshaw or to Ann (Faulkner) Upshaw: "Manda, old Mrs. Upshaw is dead. She died 22 of October." (note: this reference to "Old Mrs. Upshaw" is interesting - Tabitha (Lawless) Upshaw would've been only about 56 years old in 1860, which is not exactly what most people would call "old"; could this have possibly been in reference to Ann (Faulkner) Upshaw, wife of Forrester, who is thought to have died in Louisiana while visiting a son (according to family tradition by Cora Lou Herndon), although no reference to her or to Forrester has ever been found in Louisiana? Ann (Faulkner) Upshaw would've been about 85-90 years old in 1860, which sounds more like "Old Mrs. Upshaw"). It would be vital to know the age of the letter-writer, J.H. Curry, when he wrote the letter. His own age would have a great effect on his reference point to someone as "old", whether he were a teenager or in his mid-fifties, for example.
