  • Notes 
    • Benjamin was born at Lawnes Creek Parish in Surry County, Virginia.
      His family returned to Isle of Wight County in 1715 and lived south of
      Blackwater, near Ivor (now in Southampton County, Virginia). Soon
      after 1739 he bought land near Pendleton in Bertie County (now
      Northampton County), North Carolina. Sometime in the mid to late 1750s
      Benjamin sold his land and moved to Craven County, South Carolina. In
      1769 he was among militiamen from Craven County who took part in a
      campaign under Colonel George Gabriel Powell against the Cherokee.
      Later in 1769 Benjamin with his family and over a hundred slaves moved
      into the Watauga territory that later became Sullivan County,
      Tennessee. He owned 600 acres on Knob Creek and another 600 acres on
      the south side of the Watauga River. He was a member of the Washington
      County Grand Jury on August 27, 1788. Benjamin died sometime after
      1793. His children were Pharoah, William and Mary.
