I went over my papers last evening. Sarah Williams was the daughter of Edward and Mary Williams. of Hampshire Co. Va. Edward was born c1680 and died leaving a will dated 4 Sept 1754 and proved 8 Sept 1761. In it he names his children.
James, Edward, Vincent, William, Philip, Sarah and Mary.
It is estimated that Sarah was born c1710-1720.
James, Edward, and Philip Williams, are in Rowan Co. NC. by 1757. This family is closely associated with the Turner family before the leave for NC. Sarah the wife of John Turner, Sr. also goes to Rowan in the same time period. Sarah relationship is proven by letters written between the Williams and Turner families. The 4 known children of John and Sarah Turner, Sr. are: Thomas, who marries, Catherine, the daughter of Thomas & Rebecca Smith. John, Jr. who mar: Rebecca the daughter of Andrew & Anna Smith. Andrew Smith is the son of Thomas and Rebecca Smith. Sarah Turner mar: Samuel Freeman.
The first know residence of Samuel Freeman is in 1767 in Rowan Co., when he purchased land from William Young. There are very few reference to him in the records of Rowan Co. NC.
He leave a will in Madison Co KY Book B. page 146. in which he names his children: Mary, Sarah, Rebeckah, Hannah, Elenor, Caty, Jonathan, Edward, Lucretia, William, Martha, Samuel and Anna. Wife is Sarah.
I have the married names of the daughters and some of the sons wives, if that will be of help to you.
Samuel Freeman, may have been the son of John Freeman.
John, Jr. who marries the
