Three Wives of Littleberry Bostick Jr.

Sources claim that Littleberry Bostick, Jr. married first in 1812 to Margaret Rudd Hancock and second in 1820 to Mary Ann Martha Walker, but records point to a prior marriage to a daughter of John and Elizabeth Chapman, some say her name was Sarah, and likely the mother of Littleberry's first son Levi Bostick.

Litteberry Bostick, Jr. received a share of John Chapman's Estate equal to that of John's sons that was listed as follows:

Nov. 16, 1808 - To cash paid L.B. Bostick his wife's Legacy - $644.86

This indicates that Littleberry Bostick, Jr. had three (3) marriages.

It is also appears that "Sarah" Chapman Bostick, Littleberry's first wife, died shortly after the birth of son Levi Bostick in 1808 and prior to Littleberry Bostick's marriage to Margaret Rudd Hancock in 1812.

    Children of John and Elizabeth Chapman.

    1. [Daughter] Chapman married Littleberry (L.B) Bostick in SC. Some think
    that John Chapman had five daughters but none are mentioned in his estate
    records. It does appear that a daughter married L.B. Bostick as he
    received a share of John Chapman’s estate equal to that of John’s sons.
    (“Nov 16, 1808 – To cash paid L. B. Bostick his wifes Legacy - $644.86”)


    Biographical information is according to the notes of Jane Horn.[1] Acted as Jutice of the Peace in Twiggs, Georgia from 1819–1820.[2][3] There is a Littleberry Bostick listed in the probate records of a John Chapman, who is believed to be Littleberry's father-in-law[4], particularly due to a line in his estate papers that reads "To cash paid L. B. Bostick his wifes Legacy".[5] Evidence that Elizabeth (Bostwick) Tipton and George Bostwick were siblings is based on the fact that George W worked with a B Tipton from 1857 to 1861.[
