I am a direct descendant of this William Hagins through his son Daniel & his wife, Elizabeth Stamper; Daniel's son William Buckner & wife, Minerva Jane Back; W.B.'s son Joseph Spence & wife, Jessie Lee Gray; and my father Joseph Spence Jr.and his wife, Hilda Virginia Bland.
I have been researching the descendants of William part time for about forty years.I have many lines covered, but sadly lack much information on James (1796- 1850+); Elizabeth (b.@1792) m. Lewis Haywood in 1824; and Elisha (b. 1798) m. Belinda in 1822 and moved to Missouri.I will share the information I have on William's children Thomas, Elizabeth, John (? Peter), Gilbert, James, Susan, Abbey, Daniel, David and Sarah.I am also in possession of a Hagins photo album from the late 1800's, but am unable to identify many of the subjects.Much of my data is from the John Linville Hagins family bible.My grandmother lived to be over a hundred so much of what I have is oral history.
