I think you may have located Tracy's Elizabeth. Since Tracy is not a member of the Boyett List, she didn't receive your list posting. I will re-post it on the message board for her to see.

For all List members, please note the following that is now attached to each Boyett List Message:

In the book "Once Upon A Time In Tattnall County, Georgia" by Charles Edward Wildes there is an Elizabeth Boyett, b. 1845 in Georgia to Seth Boyett and his 2nd wife, Patience Moore Boyett. Elizabeth m. Mitchell Summerlin. She d. March 10, 1918. Seth's parents were James Boyett and Sabrey (Sabra) Unknown. From James this Boyett line is traced back to our immigrant Thomas Boyt b. in the early 1600's.

Hopes this helps,

Seth and Patience are buried in the Old Anderson Church Cemetery located near Glenville, GA in Tattnall County. It is my understanding that in the past the cemetery was vandalized and is now under lock and key. We were able to get there before the damage and have photos somewhere.
