Re: Knibb of Henrico Co. Va. 1600's
The John Wynne of Pittsylvania County who m. Sarah Knibb and died in Warren Co. Ga in 1797 -- can you identify him in Pittsylvania land records? Was he the John Wynne with 8 whites in his household on the 1782 Pittylvania Co. tax list? Was he the John Wynne living near Charles Wynne (of Dinwiddie) and Robert Wynne, and was it he who deeded 208 acres to Thomas Fearn in 1783?The Charles Wynne, above, later moved to Franklin Co. NC where Thomas Knibb Wynne witnessed a deed to Charles.
Do you have any records you can share which you believe to be of the John Wynne who married Sarah Knibb? Is there a marriage record or a property record in which Sarah is named? This would be very helpful to me, as I am also researching this John Wynne.
Do you think John Wynne (who m. Sarah Knibb) is the son of Robert Wynne and Sarah Knibb who married 2nd, John Hight? Or do you think he could be a son or grandson of Col. William Wynne?
Franklin Co. NC Will Book A p. 5 (1796) lists a division of the estate of Sarah Hight in which she left property to John Wynne of Granville County, John Wynne Sr. of Georgia and to legatees of Thomas K. Wynne. Could the John Wynne Sr. of Georgia named in Sarah Hight's will be the same John Wynne who went to Warren County? There is a John Wynn in early Wilkes Co. GA records who bought land on Lick Creek (this area was divided out of Wilkes Co. and became Warren Co.).
Also the will of Thomas Knibb Wynne in Franklin Co. NC 1794 says his children are to have equal share to property possessed by Sarah Hight. Sarah Hight was evidently the mother of Thomas Knibb Wynne. Your thoughts on any of this?
