I would be interested in knowing something about the identity of the William King who married Nancy Medcalf in Nelson County. My first King ancestors in the region were William King and Leticia Bland King who moved there from Stafford County VA after William received 1,782 acres in Jefferson Co Ky for his services in the revolution. He died in 1832 at his home in what was by then Nelson Co.
One of his eight children was William b. 1775, but I have his marriage to Elizabeth Baskett in 1808. Could this be the same William with a later marriage? There were certainly other King lines in KY at the time, notably that of (1) William's brother Gen. John Edwards King who headed the KY militia and fought in the Battle of New Orleans.
