I posted this thread under Henry Co. KY and thought I would post it on here too.
I am searching for info on Achilles Hoskins of Henry Co. KY.

We have this info on Achilles from his AR Pension file. States he lives in Henry Co, KY in 02 APR 1833 and that he is from King & Queen Co, VA when he entered into service in July 1780 during the AR and was discharged in November 1781. States he was born in 1762 in King & Queen Co, VA and left Virginia in 1793 to Kentucky where he has resided ever since. Thus resided in the same place ever since 1798 in Henry Co, KY.

According to his will filed in November 1836 in Henry Co. KY. His wife is listed as Mary Hoskins and names children, John Hoskins, dec'd daughter Polly Scott (husband Elisha) and daughter Elizabeth Gibsons. Elizabeth Gibson has a lawsuit against her father pending when his will was written in 1833.

We have marriage bonds on Achilles children;
Elizabeth Hoskins married James Gibson in Henry Co, KY 31 AUG 1808.
Polly Hoskins married George Marshall 04 FEB 1805, Henry Co, KY
Mrs. Polly Marshall,widow marries Elisha Scott 19 FEB 1806, Henry Co, KY
John Hoskins marries Sarah Millner, 01 JAN 1809 in Shelby Co, KY

We have TWO marriage bonds for Achilles;
He marries Nancy Wright (over the age of 21) 21 OCT 1830 in Oldham Co. KY
He then marries a Mary Coffee 22 SEPT 1832 in Henry Co. KY (very faded and unreadable)

We are trying to figure out who was the mother of Achilles children listed in his will??
Is Nancy Wright the daughter of Willis Wright listed in his will in Henry Co. KY in 1817?? What is her age??
What happened to Nancy Wright, was there a divorce or death with husband Achilles Hoskins??

Now to top it all off, we have recently discoverd through a family member a death certificate on Mary C. Hoskins Shepherd (B:1832, D:1916) in Trimble Co. KY listing a Killis Hoskins and Nancy Wright as her parents. We find this Mary and her husband William Shepperd all over Achilles son, John Hoskins will, guardianship, etc.. records. Previous researchers assumed Mary was the daughter of John Hoskins and granddaughter of Achilles Hoskins.

We have Achilles Hoskins granddaughter Catherine Hoskins, daughter of John Hoskins and Sarah Milner (B:09 NOV 1816 in KY, D:20 APR 1900 in Oldham Co.,KY) married on 09 AUG 1840 Oldham Co.KY a Robert Wright (B; 26 JUL 1820 VA, D; 15 FEB 1888 in Trimble Co., KY)

Could this Nancy Wright who married Achilles be related to Robert Wright who Catherine Hoskins married?? What could be the relationship of these Wrights?? Are they siblings and the children of Willis Wright??

Can anyone enlighten us on this or any of the surnames and possible relationships of the Wright and Hoskins mentioned??
Thank you!!
