Grandchildren of William Love and Mary (Polly) Williams, Washington Co., VA, Part 1

A few days ago, I shared information from the now shattered brick wall of William Love and Polly Williams, daughter of Samuel Williams of Cumberland County, Virginia.

Today, I will share information on their grandchildren. To recap, although they were the parents of eleven known children, descendants have been found for eight – Margaret H. (assuming she is a daughter – I wrote about my doubts in the first post), Leonidas Lee, Oscar, Isaac N., Mary McDonald, Abraham T., Susannah A. and Robert Beatty. No evidence of children has been found for Harriet, William Ligon or Samuel Williams Love.
