I have Lucy Clark Gwathmey as also being married to Presley Neville at one time.He was the son of General Joseph Neville.General Joseph Neville Served with the Continental Army During the Revolutionary War. He was also in the House of Burgesses representing Hampshire County at the sessions of March 1773, may 1774, June 1775 and of the Convention of December 1775. During the latter part of the Revolution, he was County Lieutenant of Hampshire County and later was Brigadier General of the Virginia militia (Va. Mag., Vol.16, p.54).
He was county surveyor of Hampshire County in 1784 and as such was one of the surveyors who helped to complete the Mason and Dixon Line. He was often an associate of General George Washington in surveying lands in Hampshire County. He was a close friend of George Washington.
Also General Henry Atkinson was married to Mary Ann Bullitt.
Mary's life (some fiction)is the subject of Micaela Gilchrist's "The Good Journey," 2001, Simon and Schuster, New York, NY.
Her great uncle is reputedly William Clark of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, which relation occurs through her mother's mother Ann Clark.
Ms. Micaela Gilchrist has her with two children in July 1830, Henry Walker Atkinson, born 1826, and Elizabeth Atkinson, b. 1828. Later she has young Edward, b. 1831. It is not clear whether these children were born in Louisville or Missouri. Mary travelled home near each term, returning later to Missouri. And the novel has her near death after Edward's (Ned) birth. The first two children die, perhaps of cholera, and are buried at Jefferson Barracks. Mary leaves for a year or two, but returns to the General, with young Ned. It is a good tale. I do not know what is fact or what is fiction. Reference in the story is also to her birth as Lewis and Clark headed west, so.... 1803?
