am searching for any information regarding WILLIAM CLARKSTON and all spelling variations, who was born est. Abt. 1775 in VA. He married BARBARA (....).
He shows up in the court orders (unindexed) March 28, 1809, Lee Co VA, bk 1, pg 72, Wm on Grand Jury of Inquest; May 24, 1808, Lee Co VA, bk 1, pg 1, Wm on Grand Jury of Inquest; August 23, 1808, Lee Co VA, bk 1, pg 33, Wm on Grand Jury of Inquest; August 22, 1809, Lee Co VA, bk 1, pg 122, Wm on Grand Jury of Inquest; and last, March 27, 1810, Lee Co VA, bk 1, pg 168, indenture of Bargain and sale from William Clerkson and Barbary, his wife to James Wiley; wit John Dixon and Benjamin Davis;This is where he sold the property purchased in the following Deed;August 24, 1800, Lee Co VA, bk1 pg 217 Nathaniel Taylor of Carter Co, TN to William Clarkston of Lee Co, VA, 100 acres in Turkey Cove, boundaries mentioned north side of Wallings ridge; wit Elijah King, Randal Collier, Joseph Head, recorded 9 dec 1800.
I do not have a census record for him, but he should show up in 1800 in Lee Co, VA. He does show up on the Land Tax 1802-1809, always with 100 acres.He also shows up on the pers prop tax rolls each year from 1795-1807 and again 1809, then disappears (sold out in the last court order).I don't know where he came FROM, or where he WENT.There is a William and Barbara about the same age range, that show up in Shelby Co, KY in 1810, but can not find any logical link between these two William and Barbaras.The later, migrated to Jennings Co, IN.
Does anyone have a list of children for this couple? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
