Have gotten back to Edward OLDHAM (1766-1795) King George Co VA and there I am stuck. 01 May 1791 he married Sarah DISHMAN King George Co, dau of Samuel DISHMAN and Polly DEGGES. They had two sons, Samuel & Edward. We are descended from Samuel, physician, who married Cornelia HONYMAN dau of Dr. Robert HONYMAN. Dr. Samuel and Cornelia, with their sons, Algernon, Robert, James and Samuel, removed from VA to Lauderdale Co TN circa 1827 to build Eylau Farms. The only other thing I know about Edward (1866-1795) is that he was a member of the vestry of Hanover Church, King George Co VA. Will share information. Thank you.
