The William Sandy who was the son of William & Dinah Wood Sandy was still alive by 1840 and still resided in Rockingham, Va. as proved by various records. Also, he was the husband of Abigail Warren but not the husband of Catherine Beck. Records and biographies show Catherine was the wife of William Henry Sandy of North Carolina. Biographers of William Henry state his father was the William Sandy of Licking Creek. William & Dinah lived in the Shenandoah Co area. These are 2 different areas of the state. Tax records between 1789-1800 show 2 different William/Dinah Sandy families living in Va during the same time period. Thank you for the other corrections.
