In memory or Thomas Betterton whose burial site is currently unknown.

Thomas was the son of Thomas Sr & Eleanor [Lee) Betterton, they are buried on their former farm lands, that was described in a Deed in Spartanburg Co SC, Book G, p.280-282, excerpt; "...half of 350 acres grant to father Thomas Betterton except for 1 acre where father and mother are buried which remains of Thomas Betterton's land..."

He married Palatia Bailey, about 1781 South Carolina, most likely, in Spartanburg Co SC, the Bailey family for which Palatia was born to lived in Union Co SC, adjacent and East of Spartanburg.

They had 7 Known Children:
Nancy "Nannie" Betterton White, Delilah Betterton Poe, Thomas Betterton IV who married a Rush, Nathan Betterton who married a Finley (Findley), Joshua Betterton who married a Finley, William Betterton who married a McClenny, and Henry Bailey Betterton who married a Finley.
