Descendants of John Sapp

Generation No. 3

4. HENRY3 SAPP (JOHN2, JOHN1) was born 1698 in Kent Co., Delaware, and died May 02, 1743. He married ALICE MOORE.

Notes for H
Henry, son of John Sapp, is the first of whom we have official record. As early as 1733 he appears to have bought some land of one Joseph Booth. In 1739 and 1743 he had, from the Proprietary Government, grants of land. His will, dated May 2, 1743, appears below, together with copies of the deed and grant above referred to. He married Ann Moore, who died December 12, 1761, and whose will is made note of also.
