William IJAMS, son of John and Rebecca (JONES) IJAMS, was born in All Hallow's Parish. By the will of his father he received several negro slaves,
and resided in his native parish, but later settled in Frederick County. He
married Eliezabeth, daughter to Joseph and Rachel (Ridgely) Howard, of Anne
Arundel County. On March 12, 1785, Rachel Howard devised her daughter,
Elizabeth IJAMS, several slaves, stating in the deed that they were from the
estate of her deceased husband, Joseph Howard.
From his deceased cousin, Willaim IJAMS, he inderited 400 acres of 'CHENEY's Resolution', which he mortgaged to NICHOLAS Maccubbin, Gent. On June
3, 1778, NICHOLAS Maccubbin released him from the lien stating in the indenture
that William IJAMS had inherited the plantation as the residuary heir of his
cousin. On July 15, 1789, of Anne Arundel, declaring himself as the son of
John and Rebecca IJAMS, he sold his portion of 'CHENEY's Resolution' to Edward
Hall, son of HENRY, Gent., for 1,987 pounds, 10 shillings. The conveyance
contained 400 acres of the plantation near the head of South River except 150
acres then in the possession of Gassaway Rawlings and the heirs of Isaiah
CHENEY. He signed the deed of conveyance, while his wife, Elizabeth, waived
all rights of dower.
In March 1778, he manifested his loyalty to the Colonies by taking the
Oath of Allegiance to the State of Maryland before Judge Richard Harwood Jr.,
signing his name as 'William IJAMS of John'.
In 1806 he was a tithable in Richland Township, Fairfield County, Ohio,
where he and his two brothers settled a couple of years previously. He died in
Fairfield County in 1816. His last will and testament mentioned sons John,
Isaac, Joseph, Frederick, a widow and unnamed daughters.
At the 1830 census for Fairfiled County, his sons, Joseph Howard IJAMS and
William Howard IJAMS, were heads of families. His son, John Howard IJAMS held
a commission during the War of 1812. The latter's son in law, William J.
HESTER of Sarahville, Noble County, Ohio, addressed a letter to the
Commissioner of Pensions, dated January 25, 1884, stating that the widow of
John Howard IJAMS was still alive.
