About William Dabney, of King William

William Dabney was born to Cornelius and Lucy (Winston) Dabney about 1721-25 in King William County, Virginia.

He married Philadelphia Gwathmey, a daughter of Richard and Diana (Moore) Gwathmey of neighboring King and Queen County, born about 1745-49 in King and Queen County.

They had nine children. As listed in Williams will, they were:

Isaac, born 1745-49; Richard, born 1750/51; Owen, born in 1754; Cornelius, born June 7, 1756; William, born 1757-62; and three daughters, Lucy, born 1745-56; Sarah, born 1752-58; and Philadelphia, born 1757-62. A sixth son, Gwathmey, was born about 1762-67, after the will was written.

The three daughters were mentioned after all of the sons in Williams will, but probably because their legacies were different from those of their brothers.
