Thomas King Westmoreland/King George
Posted by: Joanne (ID *****1128) Date: May 13, 2005 at 03:25:19
  of 507


In a will of Ann Dishman of Westmoreland County 1791 she says;

"I have been apprehensive for sometime past that my son William would marry one of the daughters of Thomas King, my neighbor. If he does, its contrary to the advice of both is Father and myself, and should he do so, it is my will he should not possess no part of the estate left him but shall be equally divided between my son Samuel, daughters, Ann and Elizabeth."

Anyone know why she was 'apprehensive' or does anyone have any information on the King family, her neighbors?

King George Will Book A shows a will for Mary Gerrard, dated; Apr 10, 1776, mentions son in law Thomas King, dau Jane King, 120 ac. in Westmoreland... assume this is the neighbor. She also mentions grandson Thomas King [son of Thomas and Jane] and if he dies without heirs to grandson Nathaniel King. I see that Nathaniel King m. Elizabeth Dishman, anyone have any information on their descendants?

I am trying to find the other grandson, Thomas King who possibly married to Joanna Marshall in King George County, 1801.

Thanks for any help
