I would greatly appreciate your offer of a write up explaining the plausible scenarios of relationship.
I have copied your above response and I too will do what I can to explore the possibilities.
I have located Williams wife in Ohio in the 1850 census. She is unmarried living with her sister and whom I believe is her mother. I haven't located William in the 1850 census as of yet. I will look some more. I have been concentrating my search for William in Ohio as that is where he states he was born. But now I will concentrate in Kentucky. Here is one of my email TSully980@hotmail.com
Use that email to let me know you have read this. I will then send you my personal email. I'm trying to keep from my personal email from getting "slammed" . Thanks so much. I'll be out of town this weekend and back it town Sunday night. So if you don't hear from me that's why.. Troy
