Fifth Generation

45. William STAMPS19 was born about 1765 in Virginia. He died on 22 October 1855 at the age of 90 in Bourbon County, Kentucky.

"Three of the children of William Stamps were "rec'd into care" of the Broad Run Baptist Church on 14 Apr 1765, Ann, William & John." I've seen this statement repeatedly but transcripts of the Broad Run Baptist Church minutes do not have the infant William Stamps at all. On April 14th 1765, the following infants was received into the care of the church: John Stamps, son of Wm. Stamps. Ann Stamp, daughter of John Stamps. And on May 19th, 1769, Molly Stamps, daughter of Wm. Stamps was received into the care of the church.

The 1850 Census shows William to be age 83 [b. ca 1767]. He is said to have died in 1855 at age 91 - these don't quite match, but the 1850 census is incorrect based on his record from the Broad Run Church.
