    SAYS BORN AFTER 1 JUNE 1780 BECAUSE AGED 40-49 IN 1830:
    1101001-11201;
    -----------------
    1820 census says 110010-4011
    so Owen Williams aged 44 or less in 1820 (in 1820 extra column males aged16&17)

    Mrs. Hanks, 908 Seattle, Ellensburg WA 98926 has loads of
    documentation summarized by her:
    ---
    1795 Loudoun Co. VA deed John Williams has wife Rhodia or Rhoda
    and son Owen who lives in Hampshire Co. VA (now WV).
    SO FOR A TIME MRS. HANKS THOUGHT MAYBE
    John and Rhoda/Rhodia Williams MIGHT HAVE BEEN tentative parents of her Owen
    Williams who died in Pendleton Co KY;
    HOWEVER HER CORRESPONDENCE WITH GENEALOGISTS DESCENDED FROM OWEN WILLIAMS OF
    HAMPSHIRE CO WV AND THEN DIED OHIO--SHOWS THAT THE LOUDON CO VA OWEN WILLIAMS
    MIGHT BE A COUSIN OF OWEN WILLIAMS WHO WENT TO KY, BUT NOT SAME MAN;
    ==========================================
    HOWEVER IGI HAS an OWEN WILLIAMS BORN 1769 LOUDOUN CO VA, married 1802
    hampshire co va--but that OWEN REPORTEDLY DIED 1843 FAIRFIELD CO OH--WHICH
    TURNED OUT TO BE BIG DISCREPANCY: IS NOT MRS. HANKS'S OWEN WILLIAMS D.~1836 KY;

    2012 Virginia Childers Hanks 908 Seattle Ave, Ellensburg WA 98926 :
    SPECIFIC DOCUMENTS IN PENDLETON CO & HARRISON CO KY:
    I'd first try assuming Pendleton Co KY, if county not specified:

    -

    Childers] Aug 1826 surety William Stowers. Pendleton Co KY Book G, page 28;

    GOOD: W.Forsythe posted the Childers sisters' compilation because those results
    were the most difficult ancestral linkages I've ever personally experienced
    someone discovering by perseverance. Most of their ancestors in the colonial
    south were so dirt poor that they never owned land; so the family linkages were
    discovered e.g. by stock brand records etc. of what ear notches meant the horse
    was owned by which poor farmer. I (Forsythe) wrote a colonial article in
    National Genealogical Society Quarterly 84 (1996): 182-199, but some of the
    Childers sisters' research is way beyond the family difficulties I ever faced;
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    If y'all want to ask more details about this compilation:
    The best way is to write to the postal mail addresses below,as long as they are
    able to correspond (after all, they did the research!) but you are welcome to
    email the " computerizer" of this database, Mr. Forsythe--and he'll try to
    convey your message to Mrs. Kunz or Mrs. Hanks.;
    -------------------------------------------
    oct 2006 for now Forsythe just copies the general list of documentation sources
    listed in the Childers sisters' family publications (below)
    COMPILED BY VIRGINIA C. HANKS REVISED 2005
    SEEN IN kITTITAS COUNTY GENEALOGICAL SOC. LIBRARY 2006 ELLENSBURG WA;
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    "JOHN KUNZ" (..."WAS BORN IN WAYNE COUNTY , NEW YORK ON FEBRUARY 2, 1851")
    is the closest that Mr. Forsythe can see to title of mrs. Kunz's publication;
