  • Notes 
    • He was the founder of the family in America who came in 1728, and after stopping a few years in Pennsylvania, came on to Virginia. He was one of the five "trusty and well beloved friends," who were appointed in 1741, by the congregation of Tinkling Spring Church, to attend to the purchase of a lot, the erection of a church building, and other temporal affairs.
