Research Note

Comment by James D. Dishman on 29 Dec 2001: "The book (King George County Marriages, Vol. 1) lists William's 1st and 3rd marriage, but not the second. There is over a 10 year period that the marriage records are missing in Westmoreland County and this is the period that William would have married Jane W. Cannaday. The name Jane W. is proved by the records but the name Cannaday does not appear. I determined that she was a Cannaday from a letter written by her son and our ancestor John Dishman to his half brother William Dishman (Jr) who was then living in Washington County, Va., dated 1836 in which he made reference to "Uncle Rubin" and the records proved that there was a Reuben Cannaday. Not the best of evidence but better than none."

1797 Westmoreland County deed has William Dishman and Jane his wife selling 6 acres to Theodore Wills.

Marriage record of William Deatley and Susan (Dishman) White, 28 Jan 1858, Westmoreland, lists Susan's parents as ___ and Jane Dishman. Jane is believed to be her grandmother Jane W. Cannaday Dishman whose name was given to possibly hide the fact that her mother Lucinda Dishman was possibly unmarried at the time of Susan's birth.

Death record of son John T. Dishman (d.1866) lists parents as Wm. and J. W. Dishman.

  1. [S144] Westmoreland County Death Register, 1866, line 10, age 70, d. 1 Dec 1866 in Westmoreland Co. of consumption, son of Wm. and J. W. Dishman, born in Westmoreland, farmer, wife Mary H. Dishman (source).
  2. [S178] There is over a 10 year period that the marriage records are missing in Westmoreland and this is the period that William married Jane W. Cannaday. The name Jane W. is proved by the records but the name Cannaday does not appear. James D. Dishman determined that she was a Cannaday from a letter written by her son John Dishman to his half brother William Dishman, who was then living in Washington County, Va., dated 1836 in which he made reference to "Uncle Ruben". A search of the records of Westmoreland County indicates that this most likely referred to Ruben Cannaday, so Cannaday is assumed to be Jane W.'s surname.
  3. [S52] Westmoreland County Deed & Will Book: 19, pp. 327-328, 21 Sep 1797, William Dishman and Jane his wife to Theodore Wills, 6 acres, adjoins land of John Cannaday.
