Can someone help a gentleman, William(Bill) Ireson fill in the Ireson genealogy? He does not have ancestry, so I'm posting what little information he does have. Below is an excerpt of a msg. he sent me regarding what he knows. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org
you can tell him that you saw this msg on ancestry that Cindy posted for him. Thanks!
I have some unsubstantiated information that says the first Ireson in America was one William Ireson, found about 1724 tied to a piece of floating timber from a sinking ship...adopted by a man in Pennsylvania...had one son and two daughters...his son, also William Ireson, married Mary Willoughby, migrated to Saltville, VA, and later died there. He apparently had at least one child, a son named James Ireson who married Mary Ann Swingle on 02 Dec 1813. I think this James Ireson may have been the father of Robert Cummings Ireson.
