19. WILLIAM H.HANSBROUGH: (10 William) Born 1783, in Virginia; son of William and Sarah Hansbrough and grandson of William and Keziah Hansbrough. He is the author's great-great-grandfather. He married Elizabeth Miller on February 11, 1804, in Loudon County, Virginia. They moved fromVirginia to the vicinity of Taylorsville, Spencer County, Virginia, before 1810. The 1810 census shows William Hansbrough, his wife, and one male and two female children below the age of 10, living in what is now Spencer County, Kentucky. The 1820 census shows William Hansbrough, his wife, three male and five female children, living in Spencer County, Kentucky. The youngest male is the author's great-grandfather who was born in 1819. The 1830 census shows William Hansbrough, his wife, and two male and four female children living in Spencer County. Probably George, the eldest son, and one of the daughters have married and moved away. One of the male children is shown as between 10 and 15 years of age. This fits the age (11 years in 1830) of the author's great-grandfather. The 1850 census shows William Hansbrough, born in Virginia and 77 years old, living with David and Nancy Sandiford in Jefferson County, Kentucky. Nancy is shown as being 38 years of age and is probably William's daughter. The Deed Books of Nelson County, Kentucky, reveal the following information: Book C, page 85. 1830 - William Hansbrough, Jr., and his wife, Elizabeth, sold a lot to James Brown. Book E, page 92. 1839 - William Hansbrough, Jr., sold a lot to Achilles Easley. Book F, page 125. 1840 - William Hansbrough sold acreage to Innis Wooten. Book H, page 14. 1847 - William Hansbrough, Jr., of Jefferson County, sold a lot to Thomas H. Mills. Book H, page 156. 1848 - William Hansbrough, Sr., sold a lot to Taylor Basye. Also recorded on the same page is the following: William Hansbrough Sr., and William Hansbrough, Jr., were defendants in a suit brought by Taylor Basye of Perry County, IN. This sale was apparently the result of the settlement of that suit. William and his wife, Elizabeth, apparently had eight children. However, the names of only one daughter and three sons are known.
