Maybe you can help me. I am getting a little confused as to who is whom. I have James Atchely as being born about 1695 in England and that he probably came to America about 1720. I have what seems like two Mrs. Atchleys. One having a Joshua 1st Atchley born about 1714and a Thomas Atchley I born May 1 ,1755. I have the second wife as having a Thomas Atchley dates unsure, Joshua Atchley born about 1720; a Rebecca Atchley born 1716; Katherine Atchley born 1718 and a Nathaniel Atchley born 1721. In my research I was told that James Atchley had five sons who served in the Revoluntionary War. Others list the children differently. My husband is the GGGrandson of Emily Atchley who married John Robert Parrott, Sr. Any help would be appreciated. I have portions of the Atchley book by Dr. Paul L. Atchley of Knoxville, Tenn and Mrs. Mary Ann Thompson, Oak Ridge, TN. In this book, my Thomas Atchley born May 3, 1755 is the son of Joshua Atchley I who was born in New Jersey and married to Mary Martin. Their kids were: Mary Atchley born 1747 Thomas Atchley I born May 3 1755 Daniel Atchley Joseph Atchley Joseph Atchley and a Martino Atchley.
