Re: Help of Elizabeth Lackey b circa 1763 in Pa (?)
Further explaination requested - here goes. A family member has a family bible that once belonged to Alexander Hammond Lackey b.1830 d.1902, m. Gertrude McKinley in 1888. This bible lists Alexander's father as John Lackey, b. 1804 & married Esther Hammond.Bible also lists John's parents as William Lackey, Sr. b. 1763 d. 1847, m. Mary Ansley.The bible lists the following as children of William & Mary:
John Lackey (above); Thomas Ansley Lackey, b. 1807; William Lackey, Jr. b.1809; Sarah Lackey b. 1812; Catherine Swain Lackey, b.1814; Matilda Lackey, b. 1819; James Lackey b. 1821 & Mary Ann Lackey b. 1824.Bible also lists the parents of William Lackey, Sr. as Thomas Lackey, b. 1728 in Ireland, d.9/3/1814 in VA & Agnes Leach, b.1730 in Ireland, d. 8/24/1814 in VA.
A little narrative in the margin says "came to Virginia and gave birth to twins."
I "assume" (I hate that word) it refers to Thomas & Agnes.[Do you have any leads as to twins?Could William & Mary have been twins?] This is the only clue I have come across from any source.
Unfortunately for me, that is where all information ends.And I've been unable to verify with other documentation any information above, except for John Lackey & Esther Hammond's line to current.Seems like once I hit the 1800's all documentation ceases.
Sure hope this little bit I have hooks up to something you have.I really appreciate your assistance and any advice you might offer.
