Seeking information on my great-great-great-grandmother, Nancy Preston Thomison McDonald.
Nancy Preston was born ~1790 in Virginia.I am unable to establish who her parents were, but I do have a source that states she was related to Colonel William Preston.Another source states that her father was John Preston of Fincastle, Botetourt County, but I am unable to verify this.
She married (1) John Thomison, Jr. in 1809 in Botetourt County, Virginia and (2) Bryan McDonald in 1815 in Botetourt County, Virginia.
Children from first marriage:
(1) Lucinda Thomison Lewis (2) William Patton Thomison
Children from second marriage:
(1) Rebecca McDonald Benson (2) Mary McDonald Hale - my line (3) James McDonald (4) Martha McDonald King (5) John McDonald (6) Joseph McDonald (7) Bryan McDonald (8) Lewis McDonald
Nancy and Bryan McDonald relocated from Botetourt County, Virginia to Rhea County, Tennessee about 1823 with other McDonald relatives.
