Re: Staffords of England - 25 generations
Do you have reference to a Jane Stafford that married William Henry October 24, 1800 Montgomery Co. VA?
I am searching for the first wife of a William Henry over in Botetourt Co. VA. They were parents of atleast two children William and John Henry. The first wife had died prior to 1806 when William Henry remarried.
The child William Jr. was my ancestor. I do know that after William grew up and moved to Hardin Co. TN he witnessed deeds and the selling of slaves for the Hawkins family on more than one occasion. A name that has come up in these deeds as reference or in grants was a Thomas Shannon. I also noticed that you have the name Thomas Shannon in your notes.
Our ancestor William Henry had Lewis Harvey as his Guardian following the death of William Henry Sr. in 1814 Botetourt Co.Lewis Harvey's mother was first married to Benjamin Hawkins.
William Henry married Elizabeth Russell 1831 Hardin Co. TN. They were the parents of a daughter named Jane.
If any of the above might be familiar to you I surely would appreciate your help.
Thanking you in advance,
