      === research notes from Christopher Handy

      re William Childs parents:
      court case in 1777, Henry Darnall vs Samuel Childs and William Childs, re estate of Henry Childs late of A.A. County;
      also, this William Childs is my 5th great-grandfather (his son William. 1796-11846, married Nancy Bridwell in Nelson County, Kentucky on 24 April 1819);
      my mother has a triangulated DNA match on GEDmatch for 22cM with descendants of Elizabeth Childs who m. Jonathan Simmons; these people also match on the same DNA segment with a descendant of Mary Tyler, daughter of Robert Tyler and Susannah Duvall, who married James Baldwin, so I'm 100% certain that Henry Childs and Jemima Pottenger are parents of William Childs, c. 1750-1818.
