My Cousin Julia,
Your Grandfather William Thomas Binning was my Great Uncle. He was born in St. Francisville, Louisiana to Henery Augustus Binning and Georgia Annabell McKelvey. He was the oldest of seven children

They were episcopalians and all of their records are at the
episcopal church in St Francisville. It is 25 miles north of Baton Rouge. My Grandfather, who we all called Grand Dad,
always called his big brother Willie T., so that is what i have always called your Grandfather, Uncle Willie T. Henery Augustus Binning owened a telephone and telegraph company in St. Francisville named the Cumberland Telephone and Telegraph Company. He also owned a plantation on Thomas Creek,this creek was named for your Great Great Grandfather, william Thomas binning, who was born in England in 1812. So you see, your Grandfather was named after his Grandfather, the first Binning in our Family to come to America. I visited Mansfield when i was a kid and stayed at a house that the people had a slaughter house and they had a 5 legged cow, that really stuck in my mind,
anyway,the First William Thomas was a carriage maker. He married Matilda Walcott, and they had seven Children.
