I am searching for the family of Mary Gill, of whom I have little information. My maternal grandmother, Anzo Madgalen Belcher (b. 1903  Butler Co. KY, d. 1990 Warren Co. KY), was the d/o Richard Calvin Belcher (b. 1873 Butler Co. KY, d. 1957 Warren Co. KY) and Eleanora Margaret McCoy (b. 1871 Butler Co. KY, d. 1960 Warren Co. KY). Richard Calvin Belcher was the son  of Richard Franklin Belcher (b. 1841 Wilson Co. TN, d. 1923 Butler Co. KY)and Rhoda Sikes(b. 1841 TN, m. 1st - Midgett, d. 1914 Butler Co. KY). Richard Franklin Belcher was possibly the son of Thomas Belcher and Mary Gill, of Wilson Co. TN. I understand there were several marriages between the  Belcher and Gill families in the Wilson County TN area.

Thomas Belcher (whom the census records indicate was born in VA), who married Mary Gill, is the son of Richard Belcher and Ursula Hasting of Amelia Co. VA. Richard & Ursula married in 1787 in Amelia County. Ursula's parents were William and Sarah Hastings.  Richard Belcher was the son of Isham Belcher, b 1732 in Chesterfield Co. VA and Elizabeth Clay, b 2 Jun 1759 in Chesterfield Co. VA.

Looking for information on Ursula or Ursley Hastings (or Hastin). She was the wife of Richard Belcher (1766-1829) of Amelia Co, VA. They married in 1787 in Amelia County and had 6 children: Isaac, Sutton, Thomas, John, Rebecca, & Prudence. Her parents were William & Sarah Hastings; grandparents were John & Mary (Worsham) Hastings (born in 1670 & 1674, respectively). Does anyone have any information n this family? Please e-mail me at tice-international@excite.com.
