Based on family verbal history, the family Bible, and Census records, etc.
My father was Ernest James Windham born 1935 in Shiloh/ Sumter County, SC
his father was David Reese Windham born 1897 (my grandfather told his father was Samuel Wesley, and my granddad was named after his grandfather)
his father was Samuel Wesley Windham born 1866
his father was David Reese Windham born 1838
his father was Ezekiel Windham born 1800
Then I see a hint, and other family boards listing Amos Windham as Ezekiels father but the Federal Census at that time doesn't list all names in the household, so I am not comfortable claiming Amos as Ezekiel's father. This information would be very much appreciated.
I have a brother who is terminally ill , and I would very much like to have this information to share with him. Thank you kindly for any and all help given.
