There may be an error to the ancestry of William B that was brought to my attention by Philip, another researcher here. I was busy making sure the data for William B and family were correct, and I wasn't paying attention to the ancestry line next to his name. It is an old link from a source many years ago that I have since proved full of errors and discarded. Unfortunately, the post I made had to contain one of them!
William B(7) was the son of William(6) Amazeen Jr and Elizabeth Berry, but I then had him connected to the William of the previous generation. On paper, I actually have him under Joseph (son of John) and Mary (daughter of Christopher Amazeen), he would be one of the two males under age 16 in 1790 census (and the second poll tax listed with Joseph Jr in 1808) William Jr first shows on tax list 1809, and after this is called William J until 1817 when I believe he died. He didn't own land that I can see (and none shown on tax lists), so makes it hard to trace him. His placement with Joseph and Mary is only by process of elimination, and I still need to further prove this. There are many children that could be attributed to either Joseph of the fourth generation, and this has proved difficult.
