States: Pennsylvania: Bucks
Yes, that is one of the families that I have been researching. I have extensive documentation on the Backhouse family, but I have been unable to place Mary Williams into the various Williams familes in Bucks Co., PA. The marriage is reported to have occurred in Bucks Co., PA, however, I have found no extant marriage record. The magazines and books in which the marriage is mentioned state the date and the names of the bride and groom, but not the location. The family was definitely living in Bucks Co., PA from 1782 until Mary's death in 1815. Since Richard Backhouse was well educated and fairly affluent, I had hoped to be able to identify Mary's parentage.
