DOWNS, KING, WILLIAMS, WILSON posted by Kathy Gardner on Tuesday, November 12, 1996

DOWNS : I am looking for information on the Downs family in Nelson county in the early 1800's. A Wm and Nancy Downs moved to Davis/Ohio counties. In 1792 William was scalped by Indians. Nancy moved her family; where another family helped to raise several of her children: two of which were a William Jr and a Rebecca. Rebecca married Daniel KING son of Cornelius. her gaurdian is listed Evan and Sarah WILLIAMS, but a biography of William Jr states he was raised by Evan WILSON. Wm Jr and Rebecca had aleast one brother named Thomas and possibly a brother named James. All of the brothers were very big in the Missionary Baptist church and helped set many, many churches in central Ky and Southern IN Question: Were the Downs and the Williams/ Wilson's related and how? Was the Nancy's maiden name or was Sarah a sister? Is any one else working on this line of Downs. I know that Thomas was born in PA in 1773 and William in Ky 1783. Would really like to hear from any Downs decendant.

SHACKLEY, SHOCKLEY posted by Walt Weyer on Thursday, January 9, 1997

There is a Plesant E. SHACKLEY on the McLean county 1870 census. I believe the surname is actually SHOCKLEY. Or the name was changed to SHOCKLEY at a later date. If they are the same he would probably be my ggrandfather. I am looking for anything that will tie the names so I can bring it forward to present. Thank you,
