I saw many years ago in the W&M Quarterly the reference to John Allday as a soldier in the Revolution and his wife, Mary. He died in the service, did he not? Have you ever searched VA Soldiers in the Rev.War in the many books like Gwaltney and others for a record of him.I have not.I have a theory that John Jr., one of the sons of original John Allday, remained in Henrico while Perrin moved SW into Lunenburg, later Charlotte.(Perrin was an estate appraiser in Henrico for many years and is in published records as such. His life story if quite a saga.He as you know was last on the census of 1810.) Do you know anything about Thomas Allday of Burke County who was the coroner there c. 1800?Was he a brother of Richard and Benjamin and the son of Josiah and Ann?
Josiah was a Captain in the St. George Parish Militia c.1768.
Do you know if Josiah died as a Tory/Loyalist Soldier in the Revolution?Because he signed the protest in 1774 of the actions of St. George's Representative regarding the Stamp Act, I have always assumed that he remained loyal to the King during the war.I have heard that many Alldays are to be found in Bermuda, perhaps the descendants of the GA Alldays who fled the country after losing to the Rebels.
Do you know anything about the Wards or Dunns in Burke County?William Dunn was a J.P. along with Thomas Allday.
My Dunn gggrandfather was b. GA 1811 which would have been in the far eastern part of the state since the rest was then Indian Territory.I have assumed that since his son married an Allday, he was probably the child of William who was a J.P. in Burke. This is only speculation, of course.
Still puzzling is the Allday relationship to the Sapp family in 1860-70.John P. and Penelope were living with Andrew Sapp and his family in Webster County, GA which was formed from Stewart.
