I found this story on Ancestry:written in approximately 1965 by Zoe Kennedy, daughter of Frances Regina King, granddaughter of Jacob Waldo King and Sarah Mayes



Dr. J. W. King (written by his granddaughter, Zoe Kennedy)

We must say something of the heritage or our dear old mother, Frances Regina King. She was raised on a typical Southern Plantation in Alabama, which was owned by her Mother. They had slaves who did the labor on the plantation; and they always had maids (they called them house girls) to help with the house work. She had four sisters and two brothers. Her father, Dr. J. W. King, was a Doctor of some note, especially during the Civil War, when he operated many times on the wounded soldiers. We have been told that, after the war, the Yankees confiscated 500 bales of cotton, which were ready for the market, from our Grandmother King. Our Grandfather, Dr. King, was just about as Irish as a man could be. Mother's people were what we call, "well to do."

This story was posted on Ancestry which may give you some clues:

 I have Jacob W. King, Physician, born 22 Jan. 1808 in Newberry Dist, SC, died 13 Mar. 1854. He is buried
at Mt. Carmel Cemetery in Bluff Springs, Talladega/Clay Co., AL. In the
1850 census it lists his age as being born in 1816 but on the cemetery
survey it list him being born in 1808. I have not been able to find any
more information on this family. He apparently moved to Alabama abt. 1845
from SC. I have his wife as Sarah A., 28, SC. Also, living with him was
John Roberson, 22, SC, Andrew Bishop, 19, SC and Mary Baty, 14, SC.
Living near him was another person named Jacob King, age 44, Physician,
b. SC and wife, Martha A., 40, SC and Pennington King, 50, SC. I have seen
a lot of postings in the King GenForum on the name "Pennington". These
two Jacob Kings were probably cousins from Newberry Dist., SC. Have you
done any research in Newberry Dist., SC for your Andrew Bishop? I'll bet
you will find his parents in Newberry Dist., SC.
I think that my Sarah King and Samuel King are going to be related to these
Kings because they lived near them in Talladega Co.
