Its not really muddled up.I assume the illigetimate Sally Dollins was probably down in Northumberland. But in the meantime life goes on. Richard who was born in 1718 and died in Albemarle in 1774, had a son named John who died in Albemarle in 1787.John had a son named Richard who died before Oct. 18, 1824. Richard had three children Sarah Dollins born abt 1773 in Albemarle and who married William H. Martin,Elizabeth, and John. Court records show that this Sarah was the daughter of Richard Dollins, deceased and Anna Burgher.On that date Oct. 18, 1824, Sarah Dollins Martin and her husband converyed to John Dollins land they inherited from her father Richard Dollins. On the same day, her sister Elizabeth conveyed property to John Dollins.Sarah Dollins was born about 1773, which certainly gives her plenty of time to get married.
