Looking for information on parents of William D. Ligon married to Elizabeth S. Taylor.

1. William R. LIGON (possible father of William D. Ligon) b. 10 Mar 1787 in Petersburg, VA., d. 6 Nov 1856, m. (unknown).

2. William D. LIGON (son of William R. Ligon) b. 26 Nov 1808 in Richmond Co, VA., m. Elizabeth S. Taylor 30 Oct 1832 in Powhatan Co, VA. d. 26 Dec 1878. William D. Ligon left Virginia in 1832 and eventually settled in Clay Co, MO (Disenfranchised).

Research NOTE:

I have a copy of The Ligon Family and Connections published in 1947 by William D. Ligon. There is a reference to a William D. Ligon that I've been researching. Clay Co Historical Society has been able to verify this family line back to William D. Ligon, but not his father, William R. Ligon.

Page 763 and 764 that follows my research so far from the Clay Co. Historical Society. Has A William R. Ligon b. 10 Mar 1787 in Petersburg, VA. d. 6 Nov 1856, m. (Unknown) Issue:
1. William D. Ligon b. 26 Nov 1808 in Richmond, VA.
