Does anyone have any information on these two individuals? Alexander is the son of Rev. John Waugh and Elizabeth Madison. He was born abt. 1706.
I have seen a few GEDCOMs with his wife's name as Sarah and a few with her surname as Taliaferro. I can't seem to find any supporting documentation.
There appears to be at least three generations of Alexander Waugh
Alexander (1674-c.1722) married Catherine Webb Alexander (?1706?-?) married Sarah ??Taliaferro?? Alexander (1734-1793) married Sarah Pearson Binns
There is an Alexander who appears to be the overseer for Colonel John Taliaferro (1687 - 1744) of Spotsylvania County at his plantation in what is now the county of Orange. We know that Alexander Waugh (1734 - 1793) and his descendants are from Orange Co., VA
27 Apr 1738 Col. John Taliaferro, Gentleman, of Spotsylvania County, made a lease for 150 aces of land in Orange County for the natural lives of Alexander Waugh, Sarah Waugh, his wife, and Richard Waugh, his son, and thereafter there are many records of Alexander Waugh and his family in the records of Orange and Culpepper Counties.
(Register of Overwharton Parish)
20 May 1749 Alexander Waugh, granted 100 acres adjoining land of Francis Conway and Taliaferro. (Virginia State Land Office Patent No. 27, 1748-1749, p. 191)
I have always been curious if this land was given to Alexander Waugh - because he was his son-in-law. However the 100 acres granted in 1749 was after John Taliaferro's death (if I have the correct date) Does anyone have any information or a will that would shed some light on Alexander Waugh and whether or not he was married to a Sarah Taliaferro.
