My Offield Family goes back to William Offill, born 1660 in Virginia. His child John Offill was born in 1680 in Nansemond, Virginia. John's child, William Offill, was born 1700 in Nansemond, Virginia.William married Elizabeth Rice in Orangeburg County, S. Carolina in 1755. They had three children, William Offill, born about 1750; William Offill, born about 1752 in Albermarie, Virginia; and James Offield, born about 1756 in Albermarle, Virginia. James married Diannah Delaney about 1776. Their children were John Offield and Lewis Offield. He later married Elizabeth Holladay, and their children were Jesse Offield, James Offield and Joseph Offield. As you can see, this family of Offill/Offield lived mostly in Virginia, so it is probably a different family than your family. Let me know if you notice a conncetion.
