who are the parents of Nicholas Leathers, born 1775, married Francis More, lived in Anderson Co, KY, born in England

+4 votes
Anderson Co recorded history states that he was born in England and only spent a few years in VA before coming to KY.  That means he is not the Nicholas Leathers, descended from the Leathers in Orange Co, VA.   But i cant find any record of him arriving, nor his parentage.   I did find on this tree his spouse, Francis More, and his children.  Thank you.

I do believe his father was John or Johann Paulus. Also Nicholas had a son named Nicholas. These are my ancestors and they did come to Anderson  county from orange co. Virginia.
Thank you
