I am seeking the parents of Martha Landrum Scroggins, who was born 5 January 1817 in Oglethorpe Co., GA. She married Robert Scroggins on 29 July 1836 in Oglethorpe Co., GA and moved to Troup County, GA, where he was the plantation overseer for the Cox and Alford family. She died 8 December 1893 in Fredonia, AL, while living with one of her children. Their daughter, Mary Jane Scroggins, born in 1846, married James Washington Dennis on 6 December 1866 in Troup Co., GA. James W. was born in Troup Co., GA on 3 July 1844 to Henry Dennis and Comfort Barnett Dennis. I don't know anything more about this couple, who their parents were and where they came from.
