HALL, WILLIAMSON -
I am searching for birth/death/or marriage information on James WILLIAMSON who was born in about 1750 and married (1) Elizabeth Hall on June 28, 1773 in Bedford County. I know that marriage date is correct as it appears in Quaker Marriage records. James and Elizabeth had a son, John, born in 1782 also in Bedford County, probably. I do need confirmation of that fact. Also need marriage dates and names for John (believe his 2nd wife was Sarah ?) and death dates and places for both James and John. I have reason to believe that one or both men migrated to Todd/Logan county Kentucky around 1800 - 1820. Thanks to any help anyone can send. Margaret Tate, Canyon, TX
