While I have no definitive proof, there is some reason to suspect this story may be true. We know that Matilda Prather married Oliver L. Wheeler on 11 Feb 1827 in Franklin County and that Malinda Prather married John Sumpter on 29 May 1834 in Franklin County. I am fairly certain Malinda Prather (who had been married to John Sumpter) was widowed and had one daughter, Elizabeth Sumpter, prior to 1 July 1849 when she married John Staples (my ancestor). John and Malinda Staples appear on the 1850 census and on the 1860 census by which time Elizabeth Sumpter had married her step-brother, James D. Staples, son of John Staples and his first wife, Martha Whitehead.
