  of 980

Descend from Wm. Sansom b.c.1705-1710, died in old King Wm. Co., VA. Trying to determine if this William Sansom is the same William, born in Bristol, ENG 1704, that immigrated into Virginia. If so, is this William the brother of Capt. John Sansom of His Majesty's Customs.
Wm. had one son John Sansom/Sansum who moved to NC, married Jane MILLER Edmiston widow of David Edmiston Sr. Then moved to SC, Old 96 Dist. served in Capt. Benjamin Tutt's Indep. Co., of SC militia, killed by Tories in 1781. John had brothers: Samuel and Micajah, both to SC and served also in Rev. War. Judge William Sansom of Wilkes Co., GA died c.1818 is possible either uncle or cousin of them. Name DURRELL/DORRELL runs through Sansom names.
