about William G. Espy
A friend of my brother's emailed this to my brother, and then it got forwarded to me. Although I already had this info, I appreciated the layout of it all and the interest this person took to look into our family tree. What I have discovered through the years I have had this blog is that, like any other hobby or activity, some of the most passionate enjoy connecting with other like-minded folks. I learn from many of them, and I use their research!
Online family trees can contain errors so you can't assume that it is 100% correct, however if it is correct your line is as follows:
1 Hugh Espy
2 Josiah Espy b: 1670
3 Samuel Espy b: 1693
4 Thomas (Capt) Espy b: 1729 d: ABT 1794
5 Samuel (Capt) Espy b: 08 MAY 1758 d: 29 DEC 1838
6 Robert Marion Espy b: 08 JUN 1800 d: 16 MAY 1858
7 Thomas Franklin Espy b: 03 DEC 1835 d: 14 MAY 1910
8 John Jolly Espy b: 11 APR 1878 d: 29 NOV 1934
9 Major Watt Espy b: 02 OCT 1907 d: 03 APR 1980
You can click on the individual names for more info. Since Thomas and Samuel were the right age to have been in the Revolutionary War, I searched for them in the DAR website. Go here:
Enter last name - Espy, first name - Samuel and state of service - NC and click search.
Samuel shows as a proven DAR patriot who was wounded at the battle of Kings Mountain. I think I told you that it was Thomas ... that was incorrect, it was Samuel.
