Looking for info on William Mooney, born about 1785 in VA. Even though some records show him born in TN, the 1850 census of Panola Co., MS shows he was born in VA. He married Lucinda Hayse May 10, 1894 in Grainger Co., TN. He married Catherine Purnell Oct 18, 1839 in Yalobusha Co, MS. I think all their children, with the exception of Charles, were born in MS. Children of William and Lucinda are:
Charles H., b. 1814 in VA (maybe TN)
Elizabeth, b. abt 1805
John, b. abt 1808
Alexander, b. abt 1816
Sampson, b. abt 1818
Barton, b. abt 1821
Thomas, b. Sept 29, 1824
Unknown Female, b. abt 1810
Unknown Male, b. abt 1820
Unknown Female, b. about 1820
Lucinda, b. abt 1826

Amanda C., b. 1837
Margaret Jane, b. 1840
Malinda, b. 1842
Thomas O'Butler, b. 1842

William Patrick married Savannah Jane Threadgill. Their children were:

Mary E., b. Aug 13, 1870
Louis Franklin, b. Oct 16, 1876

William Charles married Mary Newport Atkinson on Jan 1, 1911 in Robinson Co., TX. Children of William and Mary were:
Bolden "joe" Richard, b. July 6, 1913
Samuel "Dan" Rufus, b. Jan 15, 1915 in Franklin TX, d. July 15, 1942 in Galveston, TX.
Clifton Dale, b. Apr 9, 1919, d. 1997

Samuel married Etta Boyd Cleveland in Galveston, TX, daughter of Wesley Eugene Cleveland and Ida Catherine Wallace.

I am the son of Samuel (Dan) and Etta. If any one has any information about this line, particulary about William Mooney, b. abt 1785, please contact me at
