Looking for info on BASIL or BASEL C. McVAY who married CLAUDIA H. LAUGHTER 25 Sept 1847 in Fayette Co Tenn.
Parents of :
1) WILLIAM D. McVAY born 1848 married Elizabeth Mason 2) GEORGE BENJAMIN McVAY 3) HANNAH McVAY 4) HARRIET McVAY 5) ROBERT W. McVAY 6) DANIEL THOMAS McVAY
It is said that the sons married and went to Arkansas, and the two daughters married and remained in Mississippi.
It is thought that BASIL C. McVAY 1818 may be a grandson of BASIL C. SMITHSON born 1769 of Greenville District, South Carolina c1800 and Warren County, Tennessee, 1820s, and with later possible ties to Lawrence County, Alabama, 1830s.
Any help appreciated.
