Does anyone have descendants of Rev. John Gerrard or Garrard that married Shreve gals, or known kin of Rev. David Thomas, the companion of Rev. John Gerrard in VA/WV?
I'm trying to figure out where some of these clues fit in, and from David Thomas' will, he had 4 children: John Thomas Sally Foster Betsy Gerrard Polly Evans
and four grandchildren: Sally Thomas Caty Evans David Thomas Foster David Thomas Gerrard
The three daughters David mentions were actually the daughters of William Shreve.David married William's widow, Catherine (nee Martin).However, the son John Thomas is, I believe, the husband of Verlinda Williams, and the same John Thomas that died in Pike Co., MO in about 1820.Knowing the close relationship to John Gerrard, and that David Thomas took over the pastorate John Gerrard held after his death, it seems to me to be highly likely the Gerrard that married Betsy Shreve was a descendant of John.Do any of you happen to have David Thomas Gerrard, with a mother, Elizabeth or Betsy Shreve?
