John, I hope some real clarification has come up since your post-as I supposidly have this family now. Still into proving it.
William and Rachel are supposed to have had William 22 Sep 1727 who married Elizabeth Davis and had Elizabeth Daniell who married my Turner Scarborough. Both were dead by the 1850 census-the kids are strewn out all over the county- (Lee) but Turner and probably his brother Jesse-did come through Emanuel-Burke on the way to Lee.
This also contains much on the Howe's-though again, I am not taking it as fact yet.
But since there is not much you can find on a wife that died before 1850-I am thrilled at the possibility.
