Hi Lynn, I would like to offer the information I have; the Richard Pilson everyone seems to have descended from, born abt. 1722 in No. Ireland, was married 1740 in Charlosttesville, Albemarle VA, to someone whom I believe to be named Esther. I'm still trying to verify this. They had the following children: Samuel, born 1739, died 1823; Mary, born 1742, died 11-29-1789; Richard Jr., born abt 1745, married Elizabeth Frances Turner in 1765, VA; Robert (my line) b. abt. 1749, married 1782 to an Agnes McClure, died abt 1810; and William b. 1752, d. aft. 1812. Richard Jr. and Elizabeth had Richard III, b. 5-8-1769 in Augusta, VA, married Frances "Fanny" Denney, 12-25-1794. I believe he had two wives, though I know nothing yet of the other; Frances was born 6-15-1775. They had the following children: James, b. 11-12-1795, Betsy, b. 6-22-1797 and Esther, b. 2-8-1800 in KY, married 1-5-1816 to Dr. George M. Rheal (sp Real?). Dr. Rheal was b. 1793 in VA. They had at least one daughter, Nancy M. Real (spelling?), and Esther died 1851 in Bledsoe, TN. This is the only information I have accumulated up to this point, as I have just started, and I am not descended from the "Richards", other than the one born abt 1722 in Ireland. By the way, I have unverified information that his parents' names were Arthur Pilson of Ulster, IR, and Jane Kibon, and they were married 1-24-1725 in Downpatrick, IR. I'm sorry that this is so lengthy, and that it is in paragraph, not outline, form, but I'm still new at this, and haven't figured out a way to include all families and respective siblings in an outline form!! Hope this helps, and if you have information which you've received since your initial posting, and would like to enlighten me, please feel free!! Regards, Brenda Alvarado
