8. WILLIAM HANSBROUGH: (4 Peter) He is the author's great-great-great-great-grandfather. He was born about 1730; died in Amherst County,Virginia in 1779. He married Keziah Loving, who took up land in Lincoln County, Kentucky, in January 1798. On September 6 1760, William Hansbrough was granted a patent to land on both sides of Captain Cabell's Mill Creek; and on June 5, 1765, he was granted a patent on 98 acres in Amherst County,Virginia, on the North Branch of Rucker's Run. On January 16, 1777, he advertised for a cure for cancer. Evidently he, or someone closely related to him, was suffering from that dread disease. He described it as "in the head but so far above the eyes and ears that they are no way affected by it at present. It is near as broad as the palm of one's hand, and has been there three years." As he died two years later, it is presumed that the cancer was the cause of his death. In the list of the 1st Rifle Company of Amherst are included the names of William Hansbrough, Sr. and his sons, William, Jr. and John. In a letter from the Clerk's Office, Amherst, it is stated that he was called "Colonel" by the old residents of the county - most probably a courtesy as is so often done with former soldiers. From his will, dated September 30, 1778, probated September 6, 1779, we learn the names of his wife and ten children.
