I think Philomon was Luke's father, but I have not researched the Townley line enough to be postive of that. You might be interested in patsy Hathcock's genealogy page.: http://www.gulftel.com/chaspat/http://www.gulftel.com/chaspat/ She has information with reference to Luke selling lands patented by Philomon. I have never contacted her or inquired about her source. I only read it with interest.
