  • Notes 
    • Name: William Lasewell State: NC County: Rutherford County Year: 1782 Database: NC Early Census Index

      Name: William Lacewell Home in 1810 (City, County, State): Rutherford, North Carolina Free White Persons - Males - 45 and over: 1 Free White Persons - Females - Under 10: 2 Free White Persons - Females - 26 thru 44: 1 Number of All Other Free Persons: 1 Numbers of Slaves: 1 Number of Household Members Under 16: 2 Number of Household Members Over 25: 2 Number of Household Members: 6

      William (Jr.), brother of Joseph, was born ca.1762, NC, and died in Shelby Co., KY. He and his wife, Fanny, were the parents of Sally Lacefield, who married Henry SKAGGS (s/o Longhunter Richard SKAGGS) in 1797, Green Co., KY.

      Of course, many of the PHELPS and SKAGGS families were known Patriots, so it is quite interesting that children of the LACEFIELD/LASSWELL family, convicted Traitors, married into these families. Perhaps this speaks to our ancestors' capacity to forgive those of different political views after the war of independence, or even the progressive viewpoints of Kentuckians.
