I am trying to find descendants of any of the following GOSNEYS: Elizabeth, John, William, James, Ruban, Sarah, Nancy, Mary, Filding, Agnes. They are mentioned in a Clark County, Kentucky land deal with James SHELTON, John HARRIS, Wm. DUVALL,DEWALL, and the GOSNEY heirs. Genealogy:
James SHELTON's daughter, Judith Ballou SHELTON, married George MARSHALL WATTS about 1830. George Marshall WATTS's maternalgrandparents were Rachel HARRIS and WILLIAM DALTON . On his father's side his grandparents were Jacob WATTS and Elizabeth DURRETT. They were all from Albemarle Virginia.
Thomas WATTS,the father of George Marshll WATTS,became a Baptist minister, under the famous Squire Boone in Christian County, Tenn. when he was about 40.
David SHELTON, the grandfather of Judith Ballou SHELTON WATTS, gave land to Daniel BOONE prior to all of the above mentioned.
I am trying to determine if James SHELTON, in 1809, married Elizabeth GOSNEY. If not, then what is the connection between these families in tha above mentioned land deed?
