Although I haven't proven my link to this line, I probably link in with most of
these people. In any event, I've collected some information to add to the
information below. I'll add it in after each line. Much of this information
comes from postings that I have found on the internet and could contain errors.

0th gen: Thomas DeBarksdale, b 8/1/1496 in Thenford England. There may be
someone between Thomas and William below, but I have not seen it. William had 3
brothers, Edward, Thomas and John.

I haven't seen any reference to a wife for this William. I have his death as
4/9/1628 in Worchester, England. Apparently, the original English spelling of
Barksdale, included the extra "e" as in Barkesdale. William had 3 sons,
Nathaniel (below), John (1593-?) and Richard (1598-1628) and one daughter,

I have the death of Nathaniel as 4/5/1633 with birth and death in Worchester,
England. Nathanel had 4 children, William (below), Richard (1625-1661),
Nathaniel (1631-1631), and Barbara (1632-1694).

As far as I know, William died in VA. He married Virginia Skipworth and had 3
children as far as I know, William (below), George and Margaret Skipworth (who
married George Gibbs).

As far as I know, William was born in VA in 1664. He married Sarah Collier who
I think is also referred to as Sally (abt 1682- abt 1721). She was born in
England and died in VA I believe. They had several children, including Daniel,
William (b 1710-1725 d.12/1796), Nathaniel B. (below), Collier (1715-1774),
Thomas Henry (1717-1788), Hickerson (1719-aft 1794), and John (1721-1796).

I have Nathaniel as being born in about 1715 in Tidewater, VA. I have his wife
as Mourning Dickenson although I have seen it with an "r" instead of an "n."
She is the daughter of Nathaniel Dickenson and Mary ??. Mourning is one of 9
children. My records include the following children for Nathaniel and Mourning:
Elisha, Frances, Randolph, Susannah, William, Elizabeth (1752-??), Sarah
(1753-??), Lucy (1756-1803) , Peter (1760-1826) and Nathaniel B (1760-1830).
I have seen no indication that they had a child, John.
