Regarding William F. O'Rear's two aunts who married Covey brothers.I am descended from the O'Rear's (from William Sterling O'Rear and Esther Kelly).
The two aunts were:
Sarah 'Sally' O'Rear born about 1804 in Georgia who married Jesse Covey (b. abt 1810).They had a daughter, Drucilla who married John M. Finney (1835-1910).Listed with them on the 1860 Madison, Sevier Co., Arkansas census is Benjamin 20, Thomas 18, Levin 16, and William 14 who I am guessing are their sons.Jesse is supposed to have died in Sevier Co., Arkansas in 1861 and Sarah in 1870, but this is not confirmed.
Mary 'Polly' O'Rear born about 1806 in Georgia and died about 1872 in Winchester, Franklin Co., Tennessee who married Abner Covey (1805-1849).They had children Esther, William C., Elizabeth, Matilda, Benjamin, James, John, Mary E., Dallas Newton and Nancy Covey.
Sarah and Mary were the daughters of William Sterling O'Rear and Esther KELLY.William and Esther also a son, Benjamin Starky O'Rear (which I'm guessing you know about), and daughters, Matilda (1812-1861) and Margaret 'Peggy' O'Rear (abt 1814-1893)(I am descended from Margaret - she was my g-g-g grandmother).
Matilda married William B. Knight about 1830 and they had at least 10 children.Margaret married Isham B. Newman in about 1831 and had four daughters and one son (and possibly two more daughters that I just found on an 1850 and 1860 census reports).
