Priscilla's parents were born in Virginia (1880 census.)2 
In looking for the parents of Priscilla, there are few clues. The most intriguing (but still unlikely) is the census report for Lewisburg in Muhlenberg Co. KY, numbered page 6 and 137 and 637, img. 5/16 on This page has familiar Indiana names such as Shelton, Rhoads and Lynn. There are also, in consecutive order, John Tooley (16-25, with wife, no children); David Kimmel (26-44), with 3 sons and 2 daughters under the age of 10; Susanna Woods; Jacob Landers; and William Williams (16-25) and wife (16-25). Could David Kimmel be the father of Priscilla, who would have been three years old? And could William Williams (who marr. Lydia Baker in Muhlenberg Co., 9 Dec 1819) be the son of William from his first marriage?3
