Disputed Parentage

Some sources claim that Rebecca Christian was the daughter of William Christian, but in William Christian's will he names his "3 daughters, Margaret, Elizabeth and Mary". Rebecca's baptism is listed in "From Tinkling Spring" as a daughter of John Christian.

Merried Zachariah Ford Estill in 1775 (Widdow of John Estill).

From Genforum.com post:

In 1785, Rebecca Estill, widow of John Estill, remarried to a Zachariah F. Estill. This is the first appearance of Zach Estill in the Augusta County records. No one seems to know where he came from, or who his parents were. According to Zach's obit in the Kanawha (W)VA Banner, he was born about 1756 and was a revolutionary war veteran. Zach was also a bondsman for the marriage of a Mary Ann Estill in 1786. Was she his sister? If so, when did they arrive in Augusta County and which branch of the family were they from?
