Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: 1742
Death: unknown
York County
Pennsylvania, USA

William was born to Thomas Wedgeworth and Rebecca Passmore Wedgeworth sometime in 1742. William married Esther Matthews (b.1739 d. 9/1832) in 1770 in PA. Not much is known about them other than they had six children: James (b. 10/31/1771),William, Jr. (b. 1773),Joseph (b. 1776), Jane (b. 6/15/1777), Richard (b.1/26/1778), and John (b. 1789). By the 1830's, Esther and most of her children were in Alabama. William died in South Carolina, however, around 1798. There's no proof that William is buried at the Greenville Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Donalds, SC, He was in the Revolutionary War (SC Militia) and a lot of Revolutionary War men are buried there. His grave is unmarked if he is there.
