  She is seen as a child of William and Lucy Crisp in the following:
  Chancery Records Index Close Case Details Locality: Nelson County, Virginia Index Number: 1839-006 Original Case Number: blank Plaintiff(s): Rives & Murphy Defendant(s): Thomas Harrison etc. Surname(s): Alford, Bryant, Covent, Going, Harrison, Milton, Murphy, Perrow, Purvis, Rives, Rives & Murphy, Skidmore, Wright online:
  I do not know much more to add to Virginia's message to Cathy, other than to say that I cannot see any other parentage for Sally Crisp except Wm & Lucy. I agree with Cathy that they are the only Crisps in Amherst/Nelson Co. that can be her parents. Their ages are right & the ages of the siblings & the dates of the siblings' marriages are right. One wee point needs to be corrected: I am a descendant of Frances Crisp, who married Thomas Alford in Amherst Co. in 1795. Milly Alford, who married John Crisp, was the sister of my Thomas Alford. We now are able to name at least 6 children for Wm & Lucy: Peggy (who apparently never married), Lucy, John, Sally, Frances, & Mary. I seem to remember seeing some evidence that there may have been a son named William. But I cannot remember where that was or what the proof was. Maybe we'll turn it up again in our present research. The proof for Frances being Wm & Lucy's dau is that after Frances died in Bedford Co, TN in 1836 her husband Thomas & her two sons John C. & Wm R. Alford sent back to Nelson Co. & tried to get her (their?) part in Wm Crisp's estate after the death of Lucy. [Source: David Howard, email dated 28 July 2000]
  Final notes of interest that may shed light on Sally's and Landon's ancestors:
  * Emeline named her first two daughters Lucy, after her grandmother, and Sarah, possible after her mother Sally. * Emeline and Martissa both named sons Sterling and Preston. * Emeline and Clementine both named daughters Genny or Geneva (Jenny) and Julia (a variation of Judith?) * None of the girls named sons after their father Landon S. GOWING. Could his middle name have been Sterling?
