Who Do I Think I Am? Wow! Part 42


In the previous WHO DO I THINK I AM series I talked about Job Tyson (1760-1803). His better half, my g-g-g-grandmother Delitha Stanton (1770-18??) had an interesting life also. She was married three times in this order: (1) James Winston, (2) Job Tyson and (3) John Harbirt.

We know nothing about James Winston except his name. We know some about Job Tyson that we have already talked about. And we know something about John Harbirt. John was a probate judge and a state representative, when the state capital was in Louisville, Georgia. I don’t know but I can that it might be possible that Delitha Stanton Winston Tyson got to know the probate judge when her husband Job died in 1803.
Here is what I have on Delitha:

I need to insert this someplace: When I first started researching the TYSON family, I had information that Delitha's maiden name was HAMBY.

The first child of Job and Delitha was named Delitha Winston Tyson; thus, indicating Delitha's marriage to Winston occurred prior to her marriage to Job Tyson. The fact that her former husband's surname was combined in the child's name might indicate Delitha was carrying the child when James Winston died or that the child was adopted after the second marriage took place
