I'm trying to pick up where my grandfather left off on our family tree. According to his records I'm descendant of William Pickens born Oct. 22, 1822 in Tenn..who married an Elizabeth ??? who was born April 6, 1828 also in Tenn. They had a daughter Mary A. Pickens born January 19, 1856 in Illinois, who married a Britton Ward Smith on December 13, 1874 in Missouri. I have William passing on October 10, 1882 and his wife Elizabeth on October 10, 1891. Both in Missouri.
I'm not sure if this could possibly be Elizabeth 'Betsy' Hulse? And if William could possibly be the one I find with the birthdate of September 21 1822.. with the father being yet another William.
