Hummmmm......I guess that I never noticed that Dement marriage was before
Ann's death. If someone could come up with a death for Margaret Dement,
possibly this would help. In the infamous letter of Julia McGlawn Price,
she writes, "He [William] never moved from this home [Bertie Co., NC] and
death came in his old age. (date unknown)[per documents, William's death was
btwn 2/28/1826 and 5/1826 in Bertie Co., NC]". William doesn't mention a
wife in his will of 1826. Ann Gaskins died in 1820, William died in 1826.
William McGlauhon Will, No. 171.
In the name of God Amen: I William McGlauhon being very sick in body but
in perfect mind, and memory thanks be to God for the same do make this my

You've pretty much convinced me that there is probably another William. I
can't rule out that there were no other William's. I sure that we don't
have all of them yet! Has anyone checked out the census records for Johnson
I also have a hard time accepting the third marriage of Jeremiah to Matilda
Webb Fogerty. Julia McGlawn Price writes in the history, "... then moved
to Putnam County, Georgia. There was born to them eleven children, one of
which died in childhood." Three of the children listed in census records
that were Matilda's were born in AL. I don't think that we have yet found
all of Jeremiah and Nancy [Baker] McGlawn's children. I'm fairly sure of
1-David, 2-unknown Girl that died young, 3-William, 4-Turner and 5-Edward.
Fairly sure of 6-Elizabeth because she was married in same place as many of
the other children of Jeremiah and Nancy McGlawn. I know others of the list
are convinced that Martha Susan and James Jackson are as well children.
I've included them in my tree as children of Jeremiah and Nancy [Baker]
McGlawn even though I am not totally sold on the idea even yet.
In my opinion, I think that we still do not have all of these same name
problems sorted out yet with the William's and Jeremiah's.
My theory is that POSSIBLY Hardy is William's son and Edmond's grandson.
Can't prove it. Hardy was not mentioned in William's will.
It's still one giant puzzle!

Good Morning Cousins,
I see that Vanette and her researchers believe that William married Margaret
Dement, I don't know why that is so hard for us to believe since they all
to marry quite a lot and have children when they aren't married. I guess
what was holding me back on that was that Anne Gaskins was still alive, and
was mentioned in his will as his wife? right but if William is the father
Hardy (mother Margaret Butler) born 1768 and he is the father of Jeremiah
(mother Nancy Capehart-Kapot) b. 1768 it shouldn't be so hard to believe he
marry Margaret while he was still married to Anne.
There was no other William at this time to have married Margaret Dement.
What yall think?
