In 1788 Samuel bought a farm on Beaver Creek, between Crozet and Whitehall From Wm Albertson notes;
Notes from Wm. Albertson: Samuel and Jean owned a farm about half-way to Charlottesville, Virginia from Whitehall, Virginia. They had however in 1779 made a contract to sell the farm at a later date. So Albertson believes Jean is buried at the Maupin home place, since her parents were both still alive when she died and her husband would not have buried her on land that had already been sold.
Samuel was in the Patriotic Service in the Revolutionary War.
Note- At the formation of Albemarle, the name Rea is found on the records. In 1747 Fergus Rea bought a portion of the chiswell Patent, on the Rochfish. About the same time John Rea, was the owner of land on the Rivanna, near Martin King's Ford, the present Union Mills. Andrew, Thomas and Samuel Rea, were considerably interested in real estate during the period 1744-1788. In 1744, Andrew Rea entered a small tract on the South side of the Rivanna, a short distance above the mouth of Ivy Creek, and at that time was the owner of land adjoining. He gave the name to the Ford called Rea's Ford. In the patent the name is written Reay.
Thomas Rea owned land on the headwaters of Mechum's near Round Mountain and subsequently purchased near Rea's Ford, and on Meadow Creek, not far from the old Poor House.
**The Andrew Rea mentioned above may have been Fergus Rea's son but that is unknown at this time.
