  • Notes 
    • William Speight was born est 1778, in NC. His first born was Albert, born in Wake County in 1800. William then moved to Dickson County TN where the remaing three of his sons were born. (Jesse, William, Arthur). Two fellow researchers have said his wife's name is Mary Berton (or Benton), or Sally Bish. I have found a William & Sally Bish, but cannot prove them this is the only marriage or relative of mine. I have found little info on Mary Berton (or Benton).

      WILLIAM SPEIGHT settled in Dickson County from Wake County NC around 1800 or a little after. An old biography written by Tom Speight's great uncle said William settled on the "Westside of the Harpeth River around 1800". He had a son, Albert S. born around 1800. His other sons: Jesse M. b. 1805 Dickson, John T. (Alsey) b.abt 1807 Dickson, William D. b. 2-15-1811
