WILLIAM PRICE and MARY WILLIAMSON were married before June 1751. MARY WILLIAMSON27, daughter of CUTHBERT WILLIAMSON and ELIZABETH CURD, was born about 1733.11

In 1751, the dower was laid off to Elizabeth Allen, Mary's mother. Mary's name was given as Mary Price so she was already married. If she was 18 in 1751, she was born as early as 1733. The date of birth as 1737 given in other references is obviously an estimate and an error.

If the Williamson database shown here is correct, Mary and William were "half" first cousins. They shared a grandmother, Susannah Carter who married first Daniel Price and second Thomas Williamson. William's father was Daniel Price son of Daniel Price & Susannah Carter; Mary's father was his half-brother, Cuthbert Williamson, son of Thomas Williamson and Susannah Carter.

WILLIAM PRICE and MARY WILLIAMSON had the following children:
