Looking for more information on Prudence Southwood married to Pleasant Williams

Hi I am seeking more information on Prudence Southwood born abt 1806 believed to be in Ky, and died in Breathitt County, AR.(?) about 1840's
She married Pleasant D. Williams in 1830. Their children were John Thomas Williams 3/25 1832 and Patsy Williams b 1836 Breathitt County Kentucky or Hazard,Perry Co KY.
I would love to verify what info I have for Prudence, and how she ended up in Arkansas.
We know Pleasant remarried in 1840 to Elizabeth Fugate, but not sure what happened to Prudence.

Did she die giving birth to Patsy, divorce Pleasant or what? Really need the exact death date.
I have not been able to locate any info for Prudence in Ark. Death, census, etc.
I have considered if this was a typo and she was born in Breathitt County Kentucky but still nothing has been found to verify this.
I am doing my Williams Genealogy.
If anyone can help, it would be so very appreciated

Looking for my Robinson family Joseph W Robinson

I am fairly new at genealogy and I am hoping someone can help me.
My Grandmother died when my father was 10 mos old. We grew up knowing very few of his mothers Robinson Family.
I have very little information regarding the Robinsons and the more I find the more confused I get.
If you can help me, please do so.

My father was Leroy E. Lacy B 2-18-1918 D.10-03- 1985 Married July 1st, 1939 at Bixby Ok. to Anna Laura Lacy b 11-24-1919 DIED7- 21- 1994.
Dad's parents were Nathan D. Lacy b 5-15-1904 d.7-27-1974 Fayettville Ark. Nathan Married Mary Tennessee Robinson. 8-17-1883 D.Dec 03-1918

Mary's parents were ***Joseph Wm. Robinson b 8- 23 1855 d.3-08-1923 married ***Nancy J. Taylor
Marriage for Joseph and Nancy Date Nov 8, 1877

I have seen the Nancy J. mentioned at several other websites as the wife of Joseph, but can not find a middle initial on any census, wills etc. for her.

Correction. I now believe that there is another Nancy buried next to my Grandmother Mary. I can not find a death date or location for Nancy J. Taylor Robinson anywhere.

Children of **Joseph W. Robinson and **Nancy Taylor Robinson

(8) Ida Robinson m: Frank Yates
(9) Fred Robinson Never Married
(10) Marie Robinson b. ? d. 4-14-1977? m: John Weir
(11) John Robinson m.Delia Lacy
I might mention here that my father was always told he was at least 1/4 Indian. We have always thought that this was of Cherokee blood. However I have found Creek and Choctaw mentions the name Robinson in different Native American records as well as the Cherokee. We are no longer sure at this time what tribe his mother, grandmother? was from.

My main confusion is with the father of Joseph.
Joseph's birth record is as follows.
Kentucky Birth Records, 1852-1910
(Census of 1860 shows his age at 44?? This figures out that he was born in 1855 This date is the same as one of my mothers records.
Name: Joseph W Robinson
Birth Date: 27 Aug 1854
Birth County: Clay
Ethnicity: White
Gender: Male
Father's Name: "Thos P Robinson"
Mother's Name: "Elizabeth Cook"
County of Residence: Clay

From census records 1860: My Division, Jackson, Kentucky, Thos/Thomas P. Robinson age 44 /abt 1816 names his Wife as "Elizabeth Reed" Robinson age 32 /abt 1828
Thomas Robinson age 17 abt 1855
Susan Robinson age 16 abt 1844
Mercus L Robinson age14(Marcus)abt 1846 - Will shows this name as
Marcus not Mercus.
Eliza L Robinson age 12 abt 1848
**Joseph W Robinson age 6 b Aug 1855
Elizabeth Robinson age 4 abt 1856
John F Robinson age 1 abt 1859

I have found a will from 1839 for a Thomas Robinson. This may not be my Thomas Robinson.
Will of Thomas Robinson, 1839 Laurel County,Kentucky NAMES WIFE AS "MARY" I do not see how this can be the same Thomas Robinson due to the fact that in the will He calls himself "of considerable age" ... Maybe this is Joseph's W. Robinson b.abt 1855 grandfather?

It could not be Thomas Speed Robinson since he also would not have been born in 1839. I considered that maybe Elizabeth's name was Mary Elizabeth, but there is no way that Thomas Robinson could have been married to Elizabeth (according to the 1860 census) since she would have only been 11yrs old in 1839 and in no way could have given birth to all these children. lol

If someone can help me get back on track, it would be so very appreciated. I am doing reseach on 5 different family names and have decided to concentrate on the Robinson family first until this is completed.

Here is a copy of the will of in 1839 As you can see the same children are named as on the census.

It is said that Kiziah's Father was Littleton Brooks b. 1720, d.1777 (he was only 15 when Kiziah was born?) I am uncertian if this birth date is correct, but I realize it is possible.
*** I would like to see any proof located that shows James1 wife was named Kiziah/Keziah with her last name shown. If you have this, please, please send me a link or a file.
