    WILLIAM Doak .

    Baptised in 1747, William was already in what became Tennessee when his father's will was written in 1787. In common with his brothers Samuel and David he had served in Captain Robert Doak's company of Fincastle County militia in 1774.During the Revolutionary War he fought at King's Mountain and probably also at the Battle of Guilford Courthouse, holding the rank of Captain. He settled in Knox County, "territory south of the river Ohio", and a deed in the Wythe County, Virginia records gives his wife's name as Elizabeth. In 1804, his name appears among those of the first justices appointed in Dickson County, Tennessee. Two of his sons, Thomas and William, settled in Lincoln County, Tennessee and then moved to Madison County, Tennessee. William, who had married Jane Wilson and was a Captain in the War of 1812, died in Madison County in 1849. Thomas had moved to Dyer County, Tennessee, where he died in 1852. His widow, née Elizabeth Edmiston, survived him. The daughters of the elder William included Mary, who married William McMillen in 1792, and Amelia (Milly), who married John Gibson in 1800..
