Fourth great-grandfather, William Easley, was born about 1763 in Abelmarle County, Virginia. He was married (date unknown) to Sarah “Sally” Smith. William died on May 8, 1833 in Surry County, North Carolina. At some point after that date, Sally must have moved because she died on September 6, 1848, in Lone Jack, Jackson County, Missouri. I know that William and Sally had four children; Frances “Frankie” was my 3rd great-grandmother.
Some researchers say that William was a Revolutionary War soldier, but I have yet to prove this on my own. I did, however, find a massive amount of information about his mother’s family, the Woodsons. So much more to learn.
