Personal Information    |    Media    |    Sources    |    Event Map    |    All

  • Name William B Bondurant  [1, 2, 3
    • In a Virginia Chancery case 1896-1901, Fleming Saunders, age 66, testified to knowing William B Bondurant "from his earliest youth"; that William "lived where he was born". Mr Saunders also stated that William's father worked as a manager for his grandmother (Alice Watts). This refers to Ephraim, who worked as an overseer for Judge Fleming Saunders family since about 1814. Ephraim and his wife Elizabeth witnessed the will of Mary Watts, Fleming Saunders' aunt in 1836. Ephraim's and William's occupations were listed as Overseer in the 1850 census, as well as living adjacent to the above Fleming Saunders.

      After William died in 1896, his 2nd wife Hester, as administratrix, presented claims against William's estate on behalf of her 2 children from a prior marriage. She did this without the knowledge of the other heirs, William's children. Following is the link for the related case:
