Information on William Mason

From Pike County History and Families 1816-1987:

William Mason, son of the above John Mason Jr. married Sarah McKeachey (Likely a cousin as grandmother was Leah McKeachey?) They were married in Virginia some years before the Revolution, as their daughter, Jane Mason, is recorded as marrying John McCandless in Virginia, in 1785, in Greenbrier County of that state. (There was a John McCandless listed in Captain Robert McClenachan's Company of Volunteers Botetourt County at the Battle of Point Pleasant in October, 1774.)

In addition to daughter Jane Mason, William and Sarah McKeachey Mason were parents of twelve other children: James Mason, who married in Green County Kentucky, Sarah Feland July 28, 1787 (Green County was established in 1792); Frances Mason, who married Andrew Feland: Elizabeth Mason, who married Thomas Love; Richard Mason, who married in Green County March 26, 1793, Anna Davis; Nancy Mason who married in Green County October 11, 1794, Joseph Hutchison, a son of Reverend Samuel Byron Hutchison and ________ (Porterfield) Hutchison; Lettice Mason, who married in Lincoln County, Kentucky October 3, 1796, Reuben Danban; Margaret Mason, who married in Adair County, Kentucky, Davis Chamberlain; John Mason, the ninth child, and ancestor of the Mason family of Sonora, who married: March 17, 1797, Hannah Hutchison, daughter of David and Hannah (?) Hutchison; Rachel Mason who married in Green County October 29 1798, Asberry Vanderver; Mary (Polly) Mason, who married Nicholas Burks (almost certainly the ancestor of the Millerstown/Upton line of the Burks family); Thomas (or Thompson) Mason who married in Green County July 19,1803, Mary Fair; Hugh Mason, who married in Green County October 27,1812, Frances Reynolds.
