Re: “In Search of Granny 'Rat's Tavern

She was also kicked out of Mill creek baptist church- not far from Buchanons Station for immoral behavior around 1800-I dont believe the part about being 1/2 indian- that is just something they say when they cant find out anything about the person- She was a Hensley from Southwest virginia-she married a Bennett and had at least one child buy him--he must have died in the 1770's- There is a Bennett web site that quotes of of their ancestors as coming to visit elizabeth in the 1830's and calling her grandmother-there is another document about Joesph Deraques being at the battle of Buchannons station with elizabeth
That is where the name Durat comes from
