The author did not routinely put all surnames in all-caps, so I have converted them to make for easier scanning for names.

The George FANT who married Elizabeth SEWELL was born in 1745, so he cannot be Frances's father.  Secondary sources disagree as to her parentage.  ("Harry" is a nickname for Henry.)  I know of no primary souce giving son, George, middle name "Lee."
