Thanks for your reply.Looks like you have more information on William Shain than I have, though I certainly want to research his family more.I don't have anything more than a few marriage records and William Shain's will of 1822.
Mind if I ask you a few questions about what you posted?
- You listed Elizabeth Shain as a daughter of William Shain & Mary Broughton.I'm looking for the parents of my Elizabeth Shain who married Jonathan Ricketts in 1800 in Bullitt County.I have a marriage listing that shows Elizabeth SMITH marrying a Royal Glass on Feb. 9, 1834.That doesn't match up with what you posted . . . . However, I see several Glass heirs of William Shain listed in his 1822 will.One of his daughters married a Glass!Comments?
- I don't see a Charles B Shain or a William Shain listed as heirs in William Shain 1822 will.Are you sure they're sons of William and not of William's brother Francis?
- Any clue as to the origins of Abel Shain, who married Polly Ricketts in 1803 in Bullitt County?Or Francis Shain?
