Re: Richard Acock 1717 VA--1789 NC
Sally Acock who married Stephen Talkington was born in 1784 in NC (probably Warren Co).Her parents were Robert Eaton Acock, Sr a Revolutionary War soldier. and Mary Blanchett.
Robert was born in 1753 in Bute/Warren Co, NC.He married Mary in Warren Co, NC. By 1810, he moved to Christian Co, KYwith his family, living near Stephen Talkington.He submitted an application for a pension in 1818 for which he received support. As county lines changed, I am pretty sure that Robert stayed put, but he was listed in Todd Co, KY on Muddy River. He died in Todd Co on March 22 1848 at 95.
Mary Blanchett Acock was born ca1760 in Bute/Warren, NC.She died in 1830 in Todd Co, KY.
Sally and Stephen Talkington left Kentucky for Arkansas with their young family by 1830.They were counted in the first tax list of Hempstead Co.They both died in Van Buren, Crawford Co, AR in 1850 and 1858 respectively.Sally and Stephen had 6 children Edward Pennington, Allen Acock, Margaret Elizabeth, Mary, Sarah Ann, and Isaac Walton.Edward is my gr gr grand father.
