  • Notes 
    • William and Leah had two sons and three daughters. Two of their children married Pughs. This family removed from Cane Creek probably to Bush River meeting on certificate dated 1762,10,2. William apparently owned land on Bush Creek in Berkley Co. by Oct. 16, 1770. According to "The Annals of Newberry, William and brothers Joseph, Thamos and Isaac migrated to Clinton Co, Ohio and then to Indiana and Illinois. It is therefore likely that William died later than 1803 in one of these northwestern states. (C-610,646,1412)
