In Reply to: Re: Nancy LEATHERMAN md Boone WILSON 1812 NC by Ernest Monford Leatherman of 816

Hello- I have no proven records. I just received a reply with this info;
Jonas Leatherman's only dau. Nancy married Boone Wilson. He was distant part of Dan'l Boones family. Boone's grandfather was John Boone who was raised with Dan'l family. Married a Rebecca Bryan. Moved with Daniel and his father, Squire Boone to NC from PA. John's dau. Sarah m. John Wilson Jr.

Jonas seemed to be well off. He was helped in that respect by his marriage to Martha Green Reed, widow of George Reed of Reedy Creek, NC. She had 15 children with George, who died in 1815 and about a year later she married Jonas Leatherman but they had no issue together. She turned over the plantation, Inn and Freight company to her oldest son, moved with Jonas and a number of Reeds, Bairds ( her kin), Wilsons, Boones, Frosts, Whitaker and a number of other relatives. I suspect my William White was among that group as they all arrived aft 1810 in Lincoln Co TN. They are in 1820 Lincoln Co TN census. ( It is on the internet.) Theland they went to in TN had been about a 3000 acre land grant to John Wilson, Boone Wilson's grandfather. John Sr and John Jr died before everyone set off.

If you need more data contact me privately and I will forward your request to her. Ginny Keefer
