Mark, the Laceys lived closed to the Roane and McMinn Co. lines. The Laceys lived on the McMinn Co. side. Philemon Lacey and Esther Daniel (in McMinn before 1830) were the parents of William Lacey 1777 and Jane Anderson, and parents of Esther Lacy that married Samuel Matheny. Her brother (so they say) was friends with Samuel and that is how Samuel meet Esther. (there is an odd deal here William named one son James William 1799 and then later had an other son named William 1813-8). The first son was called by William also (my line). William and Jane had moved to McMinn Co. about 1823-4 from Grainger Co. TN. Esther's brother was #2 William Lacey that married Keziah Grimsley sister to Samuel Matheny's 1st wife. They did all move about the same time to Jackson Co., TN.
