Ned Drayton of Berrien County, GA, to Carol Herring / Marilyn Drayton Taylor
This is the family tree – from Ned Drayton of Berrien County, Georgia, to Carol Herring, genealogist. Ned Drayton and his wife, Sarah (nee Berrien) were the great-great grandparents of Marilyn Drayton Taylor. She states on a genealogical message-board that Ned would have been 13-16 years of age at emancipation. It is quite possible that he figures in some estate paper relating to either Drayton Hall or Magnolia Gardens, and that he may be the one who walked from there all the way to Georgia.
