I am searching for information on my great-great-great grandfather, John Granderson Mayes. He was born April 10, 1786 in VA. However, by 1810, he was married and living in KY, so I don't know what "VA" means in 1786, because what is now KY was 4 counties of VA in 1786. He wound up living in an area now known as Washington & Mercer Cos., KY, but in earlier days all the records for that area came from Lincoln KY. Any assistance would be appreciated. Also, I'm curious to know about the "Granderson" connection, which must date back to VA times.

WILLIAMS -
A group of Williams families left Virginia in the early 1800s and migrated to Morgan County, AL. The patriarch appears to have been William Williams, born 1783, VA, died 1857 Morgan County, AL. Another branch was led by a Thomas Roper Williams, born in VA. These Williams families all maintained that they were not related, however they share a number of names, including Powhatan Bolling, Pocahontas, Clarence, which lead me to believe there was a common ancestry in Virginia. Where did they originate? Is there a connection to Pocahontas as these names appear to suggest?

CALDWELL, DICKERSON, ELLINGTON -
Have Andrew CALDWELL, Wife, Jerusha ELLINGTON, Granddaughter of Henry DICKERSON, II of Russell County, VA (formerly Washington Co). His Father was William CALDWELL who stayed in PA after the Revolutionary War, before coming to Virginia. Since William CALDWELL was a popular name for those in many CALDWELLs who came to Virginia, I am not sure where mine were before leaving Russell County and going to Clark County, Illinois, and then on to Effingham, Illinois (Effingham County). Their son, Henry Dickinson CALDWELL, was born in 1814 in Russell County. I do not have access to all the Russell Co. Property Tax records and sites but did try the 1810 one and found ONLY the ELLINGTONs, and DICKERSONs listed. I do not know what counties my line of CALDWELLs would have or could have been in before. My William CALDWELL stayed in Adams County, PA (long enough to write the Census for that County in 1820) before coming to Virginia. Suspect he either came to Augusta County, VA where other CALDWELLs were at Ft. Definance (near Staunton) and connected to the Old Stone Church there, and have learned of other CALDWELLs in Bishop County, Lunnnberg, and Betocourt Counties. I have not been able to establish when and where my William CALDWELL died and where he is buried. Suspect it is in VA somewheres. Andrew CALDWELL and Wife, left to go with their son, Henry Dickinson CALDWELL, to Illinois. I am not sure if my William CALDWELL went to Illinois or not. There are a lot of twins in all these lines - the DICKERSONs/ ELLINGTONs and CALDWELLs. I am a twin who also has twins. Great Grandfather, Henry Dickinson CALDWELL, had 12 children and 3 sets of twins among them. Any information you might have would be greatly appreciated. Would love to have access to these other Counties and their sites/ propeprty tax records - deaths, marriages, etc. Jean Caldwell Adams, El Paso, Texas

GREEN, GREENE, McCLANAHAN, THOMAS -
THOMAS, William: in Fauquier, Culpeper, or Botetourt Co, VA: Looking for any information about William THOMAS. He left VA, sometime after 1778 to reside in Bracken County, Kentucky. I'd like to know WHO he was, who were his parents, who did he marry? Also any information/ sales/ witnessing/ land descriptions/ etc. about him in relationship to any McCLANAHAN or GREEN/ GREENE people. William THOMAS signed the marriage bond for Nancy Ann GREEN and Thomas Marshall McCLANAHAN in Fauquier County, Va. in 1778 and was a "witness" who signed affidavits in Tom McCLANAHAN's Rev. War Pension papers. . . also was mentioned in the will of George GREENE in Virginia. Consequently, I'd like to know more about him, and his family. It may hold clues for my GREEN & McCLANAHAN research. Thanks,

DOWNING, RITCHIE, THOMPSON -
My ancestor was Alexander Thompson who married Margaret Ritchie in Prince Edward Co., Va on Dec 7, 1786. Marriage Bond was signed on Sept 4, 1786 and William Thompson (presumed to be the father of Alexander) signed and gave his consent for Alexander to marry. I am looking for information on William Thompson, father of Alexander. By 27 Jan 1787 Alexander and Margaret were in Lincoln Co., KY where William Thompson, Sr. gave him 200 acres of land. This same William, Sr. gave other land on 30 Jan 1787 to William Thompson, Jr. at same general location. William, Sr. signed land transfer documents with an "X" and William, Jr. with a signature ...signature does not match the signature on the Marriage Bond of 1786. I believe that William, Sr. was in Lincoln Co. by 1780 living on Clarks Run and Dougherty's Creek and in 1783 he built a grist mill at this location. Daughter, Jane Thompson married John Downing on 2 Jan 1783 in Lincoln Co., KY. John Downing was from Bedford Co., VA. Looking to resolve the realtionship between William, Sr., William, Jr. and Alexander. There was also a George Thompson in the same general area of Lincoln County during this period of time. Believe the key to this lies in Virginia. Thanks,
