I would appreciate any additional information regarding ancestry of William Fielding Mansfield (b 12 Apr 1809 in VA) and Martha Mansfield (b 23 Apr 1830).Martha was Williams 2nd wife and first cousin. (married 21 Aug 1858). From the 1850-1870 Census information I suspect that Martha was the d/o Jesse and Francis Mansfield (b VA).
However I have little information on William's ancestry. My great uncle thought he heard that William's father was named John Henry Mansfield (William had a son named John Henry as well). This is not certain however.
Years ago, some on this forum mentioned descendants of Jacob Manspiel/Mansfield that moved in/around Barren Co. Jesse, William were names I remember being discussed. Could my William F be of the same clan?
