I've had numerous queries here over the years about my Dallas line, out of Bedford and Pittsylvania Counties, Virginia:ROBERT DALLAS & NANCY TURNER.He was born 1760 and they married 1781 in Bedford Co.Later moved to Pittsylvania Co and raised a large family.
My Robert Dallas was most surely related to other Dallas men in that area of Bedford and Campbell Counties, but we've never been able to prove exactly how, or his parentage.
I think there were 2 or 3 MARMADUKE DALLAS men during this period, probably father, son, nephew, etc.I do see one Marmaduke Dallas, born 30 Nov 1806 and one source says in Pittsylvania Co.He died 1883 in Osage, Missouri, and married in Campbell Co 1833, to Elizabeth Scott.I believe he was son of JOHN DALLAS & SARAH WHITE.
Anyway ... does anyone know for sure if this Marmaduke was born in Pittsylvania Co, and how it is documented ?I don't recall having seen his birth place as Pittsylvania Co. before.
Does anyone have any land or deed info. on Marmaduke in Pittsylvania, or other counties ?We've had practically none for my Robert Dallas.
