Subject: [ROOTS-L] King, Biddison

On the Ancestry search pages I have found references to a Jerry
Biddison that came over on a prison ship from Wales in 1700? It
appears that somewhere along the line that maybe? some of the
descendents changed their name to King, specifically Shadrack and
Meshack, sons of Meschack Biddison. My gg grandfather was
Shadrack King b in MD in 1779 or 1780 but I haven't been able to
trace him any further. I have found several Kings in MD on the
1790 census but nothing to confirm anything.

Any ideas or suggestions appreciated.
