William Brantley MOSLEY Jr (1800-1873) and Lavina SILLIVANT (1805-aft
1860) were married in Montgomery Co, GA on 4/15/1821. Sometime after

I am trying to find out the origins of my ancestor William Pengree, who was one of the earliest settlers of British East Florida (1763-1783). We have found a good bit of information on him from a book on the history of Clay County, the 1783 Spanish census, and other sources. We at first thought he was a Loyalist from Georgia or South Carolina. We are now beginning to believe he was came directly from England to Florida as a partner of John Tucker under the auspices of the British East Florida Company. Where should we look next to try to determine where he was from prior to Florida? I am Clayton Rhodes of Savannah, GA. Send e-mail to Clayton
