I am interested in your Thomas Bethany b. 2/6/1777 in SC. I am a decendent of a Mary Bethany who married Micajah Terry. I have information that Thomas Bethany I show to be born abt. 1778 in SC is her Father, and moved to Texas in 1848. Micajah & Mary Bethany Terry moved to Texas from AL at about 1839-1840.

I'm guessing these Thomas Bethany's may be the same, and therefor Mary Bethany would be a sister to your William W. Bethany. I have a dob for Mary as 25 Aug 1795 in SC, and that she died in Austin Co., TX. in either 1857 or 1858 (unclear about which date is correct, but i have two dates).

Please let me know what you think about the possible connection.
