I assume you are referring toWilliam Minor Q. was born in 1777 in Wake Co. North Carolina and lived his adult life in Tn.He was the son of John Q.(d.1819 inTn.) and an unidentified Wife. This John Q. is believed the be the son of John Q.(d.1756) and Ann Mothershead of Westmoreland Co., Va. This relationship is circumstantial but was adopted in "Paynes of Virginia" and appears to be correct from all available evidence. John Q. and Ann Mothershead are believed to have had 4 sons.Nicholas, John, William, and Yelverton. Nicholas and John have close associations with each other in both North Carolina and Tn. Nicholas is named in the will of his Grandfather, William Q. Sr.(father of the John who married Ann Mothershead), that was probated in 1762 in Westmoreland County. None of the other brothers are mentioned. William Q. Sr. was one of the three sons of John Q. Sr. (1627-1717), the first Quesenberry in America for whom there are any records, and in my opinion most likely the immigrant. Some references claim the first Q. in America was a Thomas Q. who was the purported father of John Sr., but this is very speculative. If you want more info contact me directly.
