On This Day in 1810

199 Years Ago Today
April 17, 1810

In Rockbridge County, VA, my 4th great granduncle, William Houston Letcher married Elizabeth Davidson. They lived and reared four (?) children in the Lexington area. William corresponded regularly with his 1st cousin, General Sam Houston, and I am guessing that is for whom one of his sons is named.

  1. Governor John Letcher
  2. Mary B. Letcher
  3. William M. Letcher
  4. Samuel Houston Letcher

William was one of nine children born to John Letcher and Mary Davidson Houston. See post on April 9th for siblings.
