Biographical Sketch:


The descendants of this William and Patty were among the first settlers in Kentucky, some later settling in Indiana, and thence moving to Illinois and to North Missouri. Most of their descendants, however, continue to live near and in Louisville.

A great-grandson, George Wood Meriwether, was an early chronicler of the family and had extensive records, particularly of the Kentucky and Illinois groups.
