From "Annals of Augusta County, Virginia, from 1726 to 1871" By Joseph Addison Waddell, pg. 282:

Two or more companies went from Rockbridge. One of the Rockbridge captains was Alexander Tedford, whose only daughter, wife of Elisha Barclay, was the mother of Alexander T. and Hugh Barclay. He was killed at Guilford. His wife going in search of his body, was crazed by her hardships and sufferings, and died soon afterwards. Another Rockbridge captain was John Paxton, brother of Gen. Sam Houston's mother. His wife was Phebe Alexander, daughter of Capt. Archibald Alexander. He was wounded in the foot by a musket ball at Guilford, and never fully recovered.
