  • Notes 
    • Soldier, Continental Army (Virginia), American Revolution. Supposedly fought in the 1780 Battle of King's Mountain and survived, unlike his brother Charles Jr. (b. 1740) who was killed.

      For his birth, this site cites Chamberlayne, C. G., The Vestry Book and Register of St. Peter's Parish, New Kent and James City Countes, Virginia, 1684-1786 (The Library Board, Richmond, 1932).

      This site says his will "was made on May 25, 1821 and apparently probated August 1821." Named in it was "Sarah (married William McHaney)".
