Does anyone have contact with Gary? The only address I can find is four years old and not good. I think his Benjamin-Silent is my line and would like very much to talk to him.
I am trying to find the connection sudderth (etc) and Lawrence Sudwerth King as listed in the Va Fairfax tax list of 1789.
I imagine the spelling is that of the list taker.
Lawrence is one of only 2 Lawrence Kings in the East at that time - the other is in PA. As you al know, Lawrence Suddard is a prominent name in the area and he has a son Benj. I think the Benj who married Silent.
My Lawrence's elder son was also Benj.
Also, Hargis King, whom I hope is Lawrence's father, had two daughters who married Suddards (etc). Lawrence worked for Aaron Simpson at the time of the tax list, and the Simpsons are part of the Suddard clan - Benjamin - I think the son of the Benj who married Silent Jeffries married Silent Simpson.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Lawrence is like the fluff in a milkweed pod - floats around without roots.
