      The Staige family, according to tradition, is of Huguenot
      ancestry, the first member on record in this country
      being Rev. Staige, who went from France to England.
      In London, his daughter, Letitia Maria Ann Staige,
      married, October, 1728, Rev. James Marye, and they landed
      in Virginia the following year.
      Rev. Theodosius Staige was a brother of Letitia Maria
      Ann Staige, who married Rev. James Marye, and came to
      Virginia prior to 1728. He was rector of Saint George's
      Parish, Spotsylvania County, and died December 26, 1747 .•
      Lucia Staige, a daughter of Rev. Theodosius $taige and
      his wife, Ann Staige, married a Mr. Davis, also said to
      have been from France, and the children of this marriage
      were Staige Davis, George Davis and Betsy Davis. The
      latter married Thomas Stiff, and from this marriage the
      families of Thomas and John Wellford, of Memphis, Tennessee,
      descend. Thomas Wellford married Mary Torrance,
      of Mississippi; John Wellford married Elizabeth
      Thomas, also of Mississippi, a lineal descendant of Colonel
