I've done a lot of research and until today, I was under the impression that my great, great, great grandfather, William Alexander Hyden, Sr. was the son of John Hyden and Cynthia Handley.My great, great Grandfather, Theodore (RD) Hyden was William Alexander's son by his second marriage to Caroline Bond. (first marriage was Nancy Balleu and third marriage was Lucy Guinn).
Now I'm reading from another Hyden family tree site that William Alexander is the son of Alexander Hyden and Wilmoth Jane Sparks Gendry and that he was married to Sarah Louise Catherine Herrod.
My question is, is this the same William Alexander Hyden, (all of these records are in agreement that William Alexander's grandparents were James Goff Hyden and Lydia Anglin)?And if it is, did he marry a fourth time?Were his parents John Hyden/Cynthia Handley or Alexander Hyden/Wilmoth Gendry?Was he married to four different women: Nancy Balleu, Caroline Bond, Lucy Guinn and Sarah Louise Catherine Herrod?
I'd appreciate any information that will help me with my confusion!Thanks!
