The only reason I have posted this is because someone told me this Mary, d/o Samuel Brawford/Brafford and Anne Spotswood married Wyatt Stark.
The Mary that married Wyatt Stark of Kanawha Co., WV, already had children b before 1774 and the last child was born 1795.Mary and Wyatt are in Kanawha Co., (West) VIrginia and some of their children have married in Kanawha Co., (West) Virginia abt 1800.Also none of Wyatt Stark's children are mentioned in any of the records of Augusta Co Va as beingrelated to the Samuel Brawford/Brafford and Anne Spotswood line.
