      I'd like to share some information with you as what is on your website isn't quite correct. I descend from Reverend David Badgley and Rhoda Valentine through their daughter Elizabeth b April 28, 1778 Hardy CO VA. She was called Betsy. Her first marriage was to John Starr July 6, 1800 St. Clair CO IL. Only child was David Badgley Starr b March 19, 1802 Eagle Cliff, pres Monroe CO IL. Betsy m2 Abraham Titsworth January 26, 1806. Only child was Ezekiel Titsworth b May 23, 1806 Post Arkansas AR. Betsy m3 Joel Smith, date not known, had daughter who is age 10-15 on 1830 census Montgomery CO IL. Betsy died August 2, 1831. An old family paper tells us she was m three times by her father in his own house, which was in St. Clair CO IL.

      In the spring of 1797 Elizabeth migrated from Hardy CO VA to St. Clair CO IL with her parents and many of their neighbors and her father's congregants, a total of 154 people. She was widowed in 1804 by John Starr. With her second husband she traveled to AR but was brought back to IL by her brother Aaron Badgley after Abraham Titsworth abandoned her. With her third husband Joel Smith Elizabeth (Betsy) Badgley Starr Titsworth Smith migrated to Montgomery CO IL. Joel is listed as a member of the Hurricane (Baptist) Church and later of the Clear Spring (Baptist) Church). Betsy's son David Badgley Starr in 1825 married Jane Street d/o Reverend James Street, pastor of the Clear Spring Church. All of them are now buried in the Clear Spring Cemetery; the church is still standing but disused, near Hillsboro IL.
