Sarah McKeown b. 1783, w/o James McKeown, m/o Sarah, Ann, and John

Source: The Mathis Family of Little Egg Harbor by Murray and Jean Harris . Affidavit in National
Archives submitted by Jesse S. Nettles stating that he was the s/o Capt. William Nettles and was the adn.
of his estate. Note: The statement in Historic Camden that Hester Sanders (Cook) was Capt. William
Nettles third wife is incorrect. She was the w/o William Nettles, Jr. 5/0 Capt. William and b/o Jesse
Salmond Nettles. See History of the Camden First Baptist Church of SC (1810-1985). This error has
been carried forward into many published and unpublished family histories, even the DAR Patriot Index.
This error was apparently caused by an interpretation of the entries in a Bible which did not
differentiate between William & William, Jr. (The Bible is owned by Mrs. Singleton of
Greenville, SC.) In addition, in 1650 a woman named Amelia Shivers Nettles, then living
in GA, applied for benefits due widow of Rev. War vets based on her marriage to Capt.
William Nettles. She stated that she was his second wife (Capt. William apparently didn't
tell her about his first wife, Amy Alexander), that they had no children, and that his
son, Jesse, was adm. of Capt. William's estate and wouldn't give her anything. The only
information I have been able to find concerning the widow of Capt. John Cook, Hester
Sanders, is in the Kershaw Co. Court Minutes, 1791-99, which ordered that Letters of
Administration do issue to Hester Cook on .. John Cook, deceased.. Apr. 27, 1793.
