I was looking at the files on my computer and came across the will of William Overlin.I didn't remember I had this and don't know where I got it.I did find some notations that I got information from the IGI index on this family.I need to research that again, but in the meantime I'm posting the will here.Leticia, William's wife, was a McKenney.The witness Romney Pitt, may have been Rodney Pitt.And of course the witness John McKenney would be one of Leticia's relatives.
