"ZACHARY" [A History of Casey County gives the Zachary family in that county
as having descended from a John Zachary of Dutch descent, but no connection
between the families can be found...a footnote.]

"Betty, Sallie, Benjamin, and John Zachary were known to have been brothers
and sisters, and it is thought that they were children of William Zachary.

Matilda Zachary, daughter of William Zachary, married Will Fitzpatrick on June
25, 1832. Margaret Fitzpatrick, daughter of a Will Fitzpatrick, married Henry
Neikirk on August 29, 1850.

Since both Sallie and John Zachary had a child named Willis, the Willis
Zachary, born March 10, 1796, died January 29, 1857, may have been their
brother.

Betty Zachary married ----Cundiff.

were: Willis, William, Robert, Green, and Mary Woodcock.

On March 6, 1810, John Zachary married Frances Vaughan, daughter of Samuel and
Mourning Hope Vaughan. His children were: Willis Fields; Jane (Mrs. John
Arthur); Elizabeth (Mrs. Allen Jones); Louisa (Mrs. Dave Cundiff); Permelia
(Mrs. Dickey F. Cundiff); Harriett; and John Vaughan Zachary, who married

Collins); Martha Ann (Mrs. Francis Marion Cox); Bettie (Mrs. Will Jones); and
