I have a few written notes from my father's research. I copied only the direct line to him. Perhaps you can make a link from your info. Dad, of course, has much more.

John Bottom immigrated from Wales about 1623 and lived in Archurs Hoop (Archers Hope) VA;

1st born son in America was Thomas, born between 1630-40 and lived in Henrico Co., VA, death info unknown. Marriage unknown;

John, son of Thomas, b. about 1660 d. April 29, 1710, Varina Parrish, Henrico Co. VA. This John was wed to Eliz. Watkins, dau of Henry & Catherina (Pride) Watkins;

Thomas, son of John, b. circa 1686 Henrico Co. VA d.1765. Lived in Amelia Co. VA. Again, no marriage info;

Thomas, son of Thomas, b. circa 1719 Raleigh Parrish, Amelia Co. VA, d. 1781 Amelia Co. VA. Married Lydia Bott, dau of Thomas & Ann (maiden not avail) Bott of Dale Parrish, Chesterfield Co. VA.

Thomas (Jr), son of Thomas, b. circa 1745 Amelia Co, d.circa 1788 Amelia Co. Married Sarah Oliver, dau of James & Elizabeth (No maiden) Oliver.

William, son of Thomas Jr, b.circa 1785 Amelia Co. d. circa 1863 Cherokee Co. TX. I believe he had Indian name Knockatubby but not sure). Marriage bond to Annie (Polly) Witt, dau of Elijah & Nina (Jaragin) Witt.

W(William?) Zachariah Bottoms, son of William Bottom, b. 26 Sept 1812 Giles Co. TN, d. 1895 or 96 Garvin Co., Indian Territory. Marriage bond to Elizabeth (Waters) Taylor 25 Dec 1838 in Douglas TX. It is believe Eliz is Cherokee Indian but found no proof to date.

Alexander, son of Zachariah, b. circa 1846 d.(murdered) 1860 Canton, Van Zandt Co. TX. Married Mary Clementine Florence, dau of William B. and Lucy Ann (Neely) Florence.

William Alexander, son of Alexander, b. 7 Sept 1870 Van Zandt Co TX, d.13 Jan 1939 Paul's Valley, Garvin Co. OK. Married 16 Dec 1894 Ardmore I.T. AND 4 Jul 1898 Pickens Co., I.T. to Cyrena Ethel McKelvey, dau of Benjamin Franklin and Cyrenthia (aka Cynthia) Ann (McGown) McKelvey.

Allie Alexander, son of Wm. Alex., b.15 Sept 1895 near Paoli I.T., d. 25 Jun 1940 @ VA Hospital Okla. City. Married Lucy Abigail Beggs, dau James Henry & Lucy Jane (Fulbright) Beggs. Allie & Lucy had childres James Alexander and Genieveve. Lucy died early, 4 Oct 1924 at the age of 22...

Then he married my grandmother, Lennie Ruth Kincaid, dau of James Washington and Martha (aka Mattie)Olivia (Wier) Kincaid. My grandmother b. 14 Jan 1901 Wynnewood I.T., d. 25 Jun 1983 Norman, OK. 43 years to the day that Allie died.

William Kincaid, son of Allie, and the first of 4 boys, b. 1 Jun 1927, Paul's Valley, Garvin Co., OK. Still with us and living near Wayne OK. HE is the official historian of our family. The man with all the branches. His brothers, by the way, are John Murrian, Hugh Allen and Paul (cannot remember Paul's middle name as I write this).

Hope I haven't gone on too long. Sorry I do not have all the branches but I know the Bottom(s) family used William, Thomas, & John in every generation, but didn't everyone?

Does this fit?
