On 3 December 1782 William Brown married Catherine Ward, daughter of Richard Ward & Mary Johns (both deceased)at Charlotte Co., Va. Catherine Ward was born in Lunenburg Co., VA. She inherited property from her full-brother, Richard Ward,Jr. After her marriage to Wm. Brown who owned land in Caswell Co., NC, she removed with hime to Caswell, then Person Co., NC.

In 1779 WILLIAM BROWN purchased a 500 acre tract of land in Caswell County, NC for 50 shillings per
hundred acres, located "on both sides of Harts Hillsborough Road and on the waters of Stony Creek, Tom's and Country Line Creek" adjoining Henry Williams.

On 18 August 1787 WILLIAM BROWN was granted 504 acres in Caswell County, NC "on both sides of Tom's Creek" adjoining his first land, Henry Williams, and Morton. (Final Grant, Book 68, page 82, File #884, Caswell County, NC.

(This indicates Richard Ward was Catherine's father as opposed to John Ward who certified that Catherine was 21 on her marriage bond but he did not state his relationship to her.)
On 20 December 1805 a deed was recorded in the Person County NC Register of Deeds office, Book D:27, for a land grand for 7 acres of land issued to James Jay, George Huston, and Barnett Lea, "trustees for the Rev.

"Abstracts of Rev. War Pension Files:
John WARREN, Continental Line VA, S3458, Soldier lived at Petersburgh in Dinwiddie Co., Va at enlistment, he applied 8/21/1832 in Rutherford Co., TN, age 73, soldier died 9/26/1836 leaving children and heirs: Robert B. and Thomas Warren, James WHITE and wife Rebecca, Anderson SHORT and his wife Elizabeth, John H., Nathaniel and Peter Warren, the daughter Elizabeth Short was deceased in 1838 leaving children: James, Samuel and Martha Short all minors, the son John H. Warren applied 5/7/1838 in Henry Co., TN, the son Peter Warren made affadavit 2/4/1838 in Shelby Co., IL, it appeared soldier had lived in Charlotte Co., Va at one time and had moved to Rutherford Co. about 1801."
He was on a Jury in Charlotte Co. in 1805 so date of move to TN was probably about 1806. I believe him to be the John Warren who married as second wife Elizabeth (Betsy) FUQUA on 4/2/1787 in Charlotte Co., VA. Daughter's census record shows she was born in VA in 1804. Son Nathaniel lived in Williamson Co., TN; son Robert B. died 1840 Rutherford Co., TN; Rebecca White was a widow before 1850 and lived in Henry Co., TN; I know nothing about son Thomas Warren.

Comments:
Samuel Brightwell married Betsey Moore in 1803 per records of Charlotte County VA. A son Archer Reynolds Brightwell was born to this marriage circa 1805. By 1809 samuel was in Oglethorpe county Georgia where he married Francis Berry.
This couple are on the 1840 census in Clarke County Georgia. Samuel & Francis Berry Brightwell joined the Mars Hill Baptist Church in Clarke County Georgia in 1842. He apparently died shortly thereafter because he is not listed with the family on the 1850 Census of Clarke county. I need to know his Ancestry!

William P. Sullivan's estate papers are filed with the estate papers of his brother George Sullivan (d 1815) in Edgefield, SC. These brothers lived right on the line between old Abbeville and Edgefield. The location is shown in a 1793 survey map included in Edgefield Deed Book 12, p.1, and transcribed in the book of abstracts by Ge Lee Corley Hendrix. Other Charlotte transplants shown include G. Perrin and J. Haney. William P. Sullivan's son and namesake William P. Sullivan married his first wife Martha R. Sullivant, daughter of Joel, in Charlotte, 16 Feb. 1831. This couple moved to Tuscalossa Co., Alabama. M. R. Sullivan's grave marker at Grant Creek Baptist Church mentions the marriage in Charlotte Co., VA. I descend from a daughter of W. P. Sullivan, Sr., Cassandra C. Sullivan, b. 1806 in Abbeville, who married Randolph Pickens Caine and moved to Walker Co., Ala. before 1830. George Sullivan and his wife Sarah (Perrin) Sullivan sold land in Charlotte after their move to SC. The children of William Sullivant (George, Joel, Paul, and William Perrin Sullivant)are named in several Order Book entries included on your web page.
