      Note:
      Could it be that just about everyone has gotten this wrong? I believe that William Marshall married Elizabeth Johnson not Elizabeth Williams and he was younger about the age of Elizabeth Johnson daughter of Jael Harrison by her second marriage to Richard Johnson.

      Note:
      On Oct. 8, 1702, in the Book of Deeds and Wills, No. 10, of Essex County, Virginia., p. 120, we find the following:

      James Harrison, of Essex County, Virginia, deed of gift of a tract of land containing 400 acres of land in Essex County, "whereon I now live," to his daughter, Jael, wife of William Williams, of Stafford County, Virginia.

      Thus we know that in 1702 Jael was the wife of William Williams.

      1. JAEL HARRISON, m. 1st William Williams about 1692. He died in either Essex or Stafford Co. in 1712.
      She m. 2nd Richard Johnson of Spottsylvania County, who died in 1726.
      She died in 1733. Three children by first husband, and one by second:

      (1) SARAH WILLIAMS, b. about 1693, m. 1st Philemon Kavanaugh about 1711; m. 2nd Richard Covington on or before May 17, 1750

      (see Appendix N). Nine children by first husband:

      a. WINIFRED,
      b. Elizabeth
      c. Charles
      d. Jael,
      e. Elizabeth Ann,
      f. Elinor,
      g. Philemon, Jr.,
      h. Sarah,
      i. Mary. (See Kavanaugh Family,

      B1.)

      (2) JAMES WILLIAMS (b. 1695, d. 1735), m. Anne
      a. WILLIAM WILLIAMS, b. 1725, m. Lucy Clayton in 1750.
      b. JOHN WILLIAMS, m. Alice Burwell.

      (3) BETTY (Elizabeth) WILLIAMS, m. Richard Tutt.

      (4) ELIZABETH JOHNSON, m. William Marshall.

      I have seen claims of a 1757 will but I have yet to see one produced. It could just have easily been the will of William Marshall that married Elizabeth Markham. I suspect that the William Marshall that died bef 1757 Caroline Co. was the son of Thomas Marshall and Martha Sherwood and married to Elizabeth Markham (not to be confused with Elizabeth Markham that married John Marshall). I believe that the William Marshall death reference in the court record extract to follow (abated Apr.1796 by the death of William Marshall) is the father of Martha MARSHALL Yates. Why would it take Martha MARSHALL Yates 39 years after he died to sue William Marshall? And who is William Marshall in 1789 Tax Lists Caroline Co.? Certainly not his son William Marshall that married Anne Clark McLeod he went with his family to that part of Jefferson County, Kentucky which later became Hardy County, Kentucky abt.1780.

      "Of Caroline Co, Virginia from which the family moved to"Fairhope," Jefferson, Kentucky in about 1780. The county sub-divided to Henry and then Trimble. The data on this family is from FTM CD-162, Gen. of VA Families, Marshall Notes, p. 300."

      Orange County Virginia Families vol 3 , Page 153

      In 1744 William Marshall of Caroline transferred for nominal consideration of five pounds, 400 acres in Spottsylvania to Richard Durrett of Orange. The county lines were then not definite and the area above and North of the Rivanna was Hanover, later Fredericksville Parish, Louisa, and finally Albemarle. However Spottsylvania extended into this area and in 1734 Orange was formed but there were many years before the line was clearly drawn. It is likely that the 370 acres sold in 1775 by William Brockman, Richard Durrett and Thomas Jones is a part of the 400 acres transferred by William Marshall. Richard Durrett and wife Elizabeth of Caroline in 1775 transferred 116 acres to William Durrett and if he was the son of Richard, who died 1784, then he moved into Albemarle, and was the son of Richard Durrett and wife Sarah Hampton. The deed of Charles Taliaferro in 1729 to Jael Johnson, his daughter and her son James Williams (son by first marriage of Jael) is proof that she was his daughter. Betty Marshall, daughter of Jael Johnson, was apparently wife of William Marshall, and she was a Williams and William was the son of Elizabeth Marshall referred to in the Will of Richard Durrett 1763-68. This suggests that William Brockman, Thomas Jones as well as Richard Durrett were legatees of Elizabeth Marshall, but whether William was legatee thru his wife or mother, who could have been a Marshall is not known at this writing. My conclusion that William Brockman married Elizabeth Mason seems sound but the name Mason in the family could have come from William's mother. At any rate one of them William or Samuel, married a Mason and one a Marshall. One William Marshall married Elizabeth Williams, and John, who married Elizabeth Markham (Will Culpeper) was then likely William's father and, William was son of Thomas Marshall, spouse of Elizabeth who passed on the Marshall land to the Durretts and other heirs.
