"James League appeared in Amelia County first in 1739. He was
soon behind in paying his debts. In 1742 Amelia County court
granted Woodson a judgement against League. Sheriff Thomas Tabb
was looking for League in August 1742 but reported to the court
that “James League is not to be found in my bailiwick.” Tabb
evidently arrested League in February 1742/3 and he spent twenty
days in jail until the plaintiff ordered Tabb to set him free.
Presuming his sons would have appeared as tithables in Amelia
County about the same time as James Jr., they are as indicated
Other individuals living in Amelia County were Edmund League
who, with Bartholomew League, witnessed a deed between William
Jesse and William Foster in 1779. Rhoda League married Joel
Cheatham in Amelia County 14 November (bond) 1785. In 1779
Amelia County bound out “poor children” Robert Fargus League,
Richard League, Martha League, Sarah League, and Nancy League.
"On 22 June, 1871 in McLennan Co TX Thomas George Malone m. Mrs
Sarah Elizabeth Holly Woodruff. I have the pension application
that she filed for a widow's pension for his Civil War service.
She stated that she was borned in AL and had been in TX over 40
yrs ( going from memory so I am just guessing). Now that has
always peaked my interest because the uncle of Thomas George
Malone married Mary Jane Woodruff in Williamson Co TN in
1836/37. All my life I heard that our Woodruff ancestors came
Howell and/or Howell S. Woodruff was either the father or
brother of Mary Jane.
McLennan Co. TX Sarah, and sons are there on the 1880 census.
