I show an Amanda E. Batchelor (sometimes spelled Bachelor), b. GA, about 1838, lived in Chambers Co., AL in 1850 census. Her Father, William H. Batchelor,Jr., died in Winston Co., AL in 1872. Amanda had older sisters Emeline and Nancy. Do any of these dates sound right? You may contact me directly at

Here is what my records show about Amanda E. Batchelor/Bachelor:

Amanda E. Batchelor, b. about 1838, AL, married James Smith, b. about 1835, d. about 1875, Talladega District, Talladega Co., AL.

Amanda was still living in Talladega Co., AL, at the time of the 1880 census.

Her parents were William Henry Batchelor, Jr., b. c1810, Franklin Co., NC, d. June 25, 1872, Ranburne, Cleburne Co., AL and Elizabeth Baggett, b. c1812, NC, d. c1838, AL.

William Henry Batchelor, Sr., b. 1787, Franklin Co., NC, d. September 1869, Carroll Co., GA; m. 1809, Franklin Co., NC, Martha "Patsy" Gay, b. c1790, d. c1815, Franklin Co., NC.

William Henry, Sr. was the brother of my ggg grandfather, John Batchelor. The Army changed John's last name to Bachelor during the War of 1812 and he raised a family whose name was spelled that way (my lineage). His second wife had his name changed back to Batchelor to dis-inherit the children of the first family. My great grandfather discarded the "e" when he moved to Oklahoma Territory in 1896.

This family is traced back to our original immigrant, William Bachelor, who came to VA in 1648, in the book "The Batchelor Family", 1991, Lyle K. Williams. If you wish to purchase a copy, contact me at and I can give you the address of the publisher.
