Trying to prove my line.My ancestor was William P. King b. 1807 SC/NC, lived in Selma, AL area.Bought land w/ a Miles King in 1837.Married wealthy widow Sally Arnold Taylor 1837 in Autauga Co.,AL.Their first child was my great-great-grandmother Anna King, she married c1855 to Augustus Laws.
I believe William P. King was most likely the s/o Charlotte Pegues & her first husband John King. John King died 9/28/1825 in Anson Co.,NC.Charlotte moved to AL w/ her children.She died in Clarke Co.,AL in 1864.She had remarried in 1844 to James Johnson but he had died by 1850 as Charlotte is living w/ her daughter Betsey King Campbell.
I noticed that William Pegues' will, Charlotte's father, was witnessed by a McIver.Does anyone know his relationship if any to the family?the reason I ask is there was a General McIver Law in the Civil War & the name Augustus was common in the family.I am searching for my Augustus Law's ancestry as well.Thanks, Cindy
