I am looking/searching for ANY verifiable information on William TOLER, Circa late 1700's from Virginia. I have seen information showing that he was in King William, Louisa, Goochland, Chesterfield, and Mecklenburg Counties in Virginia, from various sources, "Toler Repsitory" by Anita Toler Baudean; International Genealogical Index of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; Louisa County Historical Magazine, Spring 1990, Mineral (Old Tolersville) Centennial; Henley Marriage & Obituary Database; etc. etc. etc.
It is alleged that he was married to Hannah Jennings Brockman; Hannah Jones, or whomever.
It is true, according to the Henley Marriage & Obituary database, that William Toler was married to a "Hannah" as this shows her death date to be 27 Jan 1840, aged 43 years. This places her birth to be about 1796/1797.
The firstborn child of William Toler is alleged to be Adam Toler, who married the widow, Mary Jerdone Pottie, shortly after the death of her first husband, George Pottie. Adam Toler was born 30 Nov 1766.
So, if Adam Toler, the first child of William was born in 1766, then, please help me understand this, how could Hannah be his mother???
Yes, there is a daughter of John Brockman and his wife, Mary Collins Brockman named Hannah, but I have not been able to locate ANY documentation stating that she was married to William Toler. As a matter of fact, the IGI of the LDS Church shows that this Hannah Brockman was married to a Thomas Bastin of Pittsylvania County, Virginia and that they lived in North Carolina, where she allegedly died and is buried at the at Lick Fork Primitive Baptist Church, Rockingham County, North Carolina.
So, I have stated all of this to say...
Can ANYONE out there shed any light on William Toler, his wife (or wives), or anything else that my be of interest in clearing up this mud?
You may email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with any information you may have available.
PLEASE accept my deepest and most sincere thanks if you can!!!
