On April 2, 1818 James and Martha Ruth Stonecypher started from near Eastonaelle, GA on horseback, each carrying one of the twin boys on their respective horses. James had Joseph while Martha Ruth had John, as they attempted to cross the Tugaloo River to visit Martha Ruth's parents in South Carolina. This crossing is known as Clevelands Ford. Marth Ruth and her son John were swept off her horse in the river and drowned before James could safely put Joseph on the river bank and go back to assist his wife and son.

On his marriage certificate, G.D. Myers is shown as David M. Myers. We know this is the correct person since on their daughter, Mary Myers Murr's death certificate, Lucy Garrett is given as her mother. The marriage certificate is for Lucy A. Garrett and David M. Myers and the yea, 1849, is in line with the birth of their first child. Unless Lucy married two Myers men. I think it more likely G.D. Myers' name is George David.
