Descendants of Thomas Selby

Generation No. 5

16. WILLIAM ATKINSON5 SELBY (JOHN4, THOMAS3, THOMAS2, THOMAS1) was born May 25, 1757 in Somerset, MD, and died August 02, 1809 in MD or KY. He married SARAH WHITE TOWNSEND February 28, 1782 in Worcester Co., Maryland, daughter of BARKLEY TOWNSEND and MARY ???. She was born September 29, 1762 in Somerset Co., Maryland, and died September 02, 1809 in MD or KY.

Notes for W
ILLIAM ATKINSON SELBY:
WAS was a residuary legatee in 1779 in the will of his uncle John Atkinson. In the June 1779 court, WAS, son of John of Nassawadux, was indicted by the court for going to the enemy. He later served in the Revolution under Captain Quinton in 1780. In other words, WAS first fought for the British and then 'switched' to the Revolutionary army.    It is through him and the work that my sister Judy DeVore Singleton and I did that our branch of the family is now considered eligible for the DAR. BTW, since WAS's brother John (see previous generation/page) went straight into the Revolutionary army as a Lieutenant, this causes me to strongly suspect that our WAS was originally influenced AWAY from the revolution by his staunch tory father-in-law Barkley Townsend. (see Townsend family)

In the 1790 Census WAS is listed with one male over 16, two males under 16 and three females.
