;
from Find A Grave:
     BIRTH     1698, Louisa County, Virginia, USA
     DEATH     1778 (aged 79–80), Caswell County, North Carolina, USA
     *Born before 1735 d before June 1779
     First found in Louisa Cty. Va
     Married 1 Frances BLACKSTONE [c 1700-c1752] believed to be 1st wife 2 Judith/Judah Blackstone (sister to Frances) b before 1735 d unknown
     Edward STRINGER [c 1698-c1778] of Louisa Co, VA.
     Edward was found in York Co, VA then Louisa Co., Va and surrounding areas. He migrated to Caswell Co., NC and died there in 1777/78.
     Believed to be buried on own land in lost cemetery in grave with no marker. Last found in Caswell Cty NC with will 1779.
     Children of Edward & 1 Frances:
      Elizabeth STRINGER marr Nicholas GENTRY III
      Edmund STRINGER marr Susannah LOVELL. NOTES: Sarah Stringer d/o Edmund Stringer and Susannah Lovall. Sarah married a Fidler and had Anna Fidler (b.1782 in Nelson Co. KY)m. Nicolas Osborn in 1811.
      Frances STRINGER marr David VIA & John EDEY
     After death of Frances BLACKSTONE, Edward STRINGER marr 2 Judith/Judah Blackstone and sister to Frances. Children of Edward & Judith Blackstone:
      Limeledge STRINGER
      Frances "Fanny" STRINGER marr (---) SOUTHERLAND
      James STRINGER marr Elizabeth BLACKBURN
      Agnes "Aggy" STRINGER marr Robert WHITLOCK
      Lucia "Lucy" STRINGER marr Robert BROWNING
      Sarah STRINGER marr Robert CAMPBELL
      Reuben STRINGER marr Elizabeth (Blackburn?). Reuben was born in Virginia and migrated to SC then to NC and KY. He died in Hickman Co., TN in 1823.
      Tabitha STRINGER marr Henry PEED
      Mary Ann STRINGER marr John REECE
      William STRINGER marr Susanna (---)
      Edmund Stringer marr Susannah (Lovell?).
     He was first found in Louisa Co., VA in the mid-1700s.
     His first wife was Frances Blackstone.
     Edward died in Caswell Co., N. C. and left a will which was probated in 1779. He named his wife Judith and several children like
      Reuben Stringer who married Elizabeth (last name unknown).
      Reuben's son John who married Susannah Baker in Ashe co NC
      Reuben's daughter Susannah Stringer, born December 13, 1776.
      Married Samuel Burton. they settled in Pulaski Co., Ky.
     She may have had a child/dau before her marriage.
     Samuel left his estate to Parmela in his will.
     He had written her name as Calloway then marked through it and put Stringer although he said he would refer to her as Parmela Burton in future mentions of her
     Edwards' descendants moved to Kansas. IN SE Kansas deeds/records of Sull. Co from 1854 to 1864 found at least 20 references, mostly
purchases of Stringers. So much so that the area of Taylor Township is still referred to as the Stringer Hills. They lived in a now defunct town of Lindley, but owned almost all the land north to Humphreys, Mo. The town has a main drag called Stringer street, albeit the town has 104 people.
An 1876 atlas of Sull. Co. showed the sections of land that comprise the areas of Stringer Hills.
     Edward was in York co., VA in 1715 and was first found in Louisa Co in 1740. In `1719, presume York Co
     Frances Blackstone and Edward Stringer sued William Hilsman to release the estate of Robert Blackstone so his funeral could be paid.
     So in 1719 they were not married but Edmund was born abt. 1721 so they probably married abt. 1720.
     There was an Edward Stringer in York Co. abt 1665 but don't know if that was Edward's Father. There was also another older Edmund in Louisa Co. who could have been his Father as he named his oldest son Edmund.
     No one as of now has been able to connect Edward back further
     1719 Edward Stringer and Frances STRINGER did file a suit together. I had previously said she was listed as Frances Blackstone in the suit but I made a mistake. She was Frances Blackstone in her Mother's will in 1716 and Frances STRINGER in the lawsuit in 1719 so they were probably married between 1716 and 1719.

      1 Dorothy MARRIOT

      Father: Robert YOUNG (Abt 1610-Bef 1665)

     Robert Armstrong died in Rappahannock County, Virginia in 1677/1680; he was 52.
     Children
      Elizabeth Armstrong Blackstone
      Millicent Armstrong Blackstone
     The will of Robert Armstrong recorded in Essex Co. VA in 1708 left a tract of land to his grand daughters Ann and Hannah (BLACKSTONE) jointly.
     For several years it was thought that their name may have been Armstrong also but no proof of this was found.
     More research in the records of Essex Co. disclosed the fact that the second wife of Argyle Blackstone was Elizabeth Armstrong, daughter of Robert Armstrong, and that Argyle and Elizabeth had daughters named Ann and Hannah.
     No marriage record of Ann was found but there is a record of the marriage of Hannah and John Zachary.
     The records of Spottsylvania Co. show that in 1723 John & Hannah Blackstone Zachery and James & Ann Blackstone Stodgill/Sturgill sold the tract of land given to Ann and Hannah by the will of Robert Armstrong.
     These records leave no doubt that the wife of James Stodgill/Sturgill of Orange (Greene) Co. VA was Ann Blackstone, daughter of Argyle Blackstone and Elizabeth Armstrong.
     John Zachary and Hannah later settled near James and Ann in present Greene Co. and the early Orange Co records show that they witnessed deeds and other documents for each other and owned adjoining land.

     Anne Williams Blackstone was born in 1700 at Essex Co., Virginia, USA.2 She married James Sturgill Sr. before 1725; According to their Find A Grave memorials, their oldest child listed, James, was born in 1725.3,2
Anne Williams Blackstone was buried in 1763 at Saint Thomas Episcopal Church Cemetery, Orange, Orange Co., Virginia, USA,

; from Find A Grave:
     BIRTH     1700, Essex County, Virginia, USA
     DEATH     1763 (aged 62–63), Orange County, Virginia, USA
     JAMES STODGILL (Sturgill) and his wife Anne BLACKSTONE moved from Essex County to Orange County [the area now in Green County] in 1732 after he inherited the land from Ambrose Madison. In the same year, JAMES bought 200 acres of adjoining land from Zachariah Taylor. At the time of his death in 1753, JAMES owned an estate of 1200 acres in several adjoining tracts on the waters of Swift Run Creek about seven miles west of the present town of Standardsville, Virginia. Anne BLACKSTONE STODGILL, wife of JAMES, died there in 1763 and within a few year of her passing all of the children of JAMES and Anne had migrated elsewhere. (Thanks to June Bork ~ http://boards.ancestry.com/surnames.croley/258/mb.ashx )
     *Several sources state Anne's burial site as "St. Thomas Parish, Orange, now Green Co., VA." However, St. Thomas Parish became St. Thomas Episcopal Church and IS located in Orange, VA.

James Sturgill Sr. died in 1753 at Stanardsville, Greene Co., Virginia, USA;

     Their first home was in Essex Cty, Va. where their first two children were born
     In 1732, they moved to a farm in Orange Cty now Greene Cty, Va. They lived out their lives there and their other children were born there.
     It is believed James d 1753 and his wife d 1763 are believed buried in the Williams Cemetery on Swift Run Creek. She may be in a local parish church cemetery. NO MARKERS
     NOTES FROM JANELLE D G THOMPSON:
     James Stodghill's name at this time appeared variously as Stodgell or Stodgill. He first appears in public records after his marriage, in the 1723 deed where he and his wife and her sister and husband John Zachary sell the girls' inherited land. See Anne's bio. In 1731 James bought land from Jeffrey and Effie Crowley, which resulted in an interesting suit and counter suit for claims of non-payment and slander. James and Ann Stodgill over the years inherited, bought and sold many tracts of land, at one time said to total 1200 acres. Their homestead place, on which their last four
children were born, was on Swift Run Creek, a branch of the James River near Parker's Mountain. After 1740, it was in the area of St. Thomas Parish, and later became Orange Co., Va., now Green Co.
     1732 Bought 200 acres from Zachary Taylor
     1741 Bought 200 acres from Thomas Calloway
     He seemed to run afoul of some of his neighbors, as he was sued once for killing neighbor William Calloway's dog, and once for failing to deliver tobacco for a piece of land, for which he successfully counter-sued for slander.
     His name appeared on jury panels and as a road-overseer.
     The inventory for his estate when he died at the age of 58 lists much cattle, horses, pigs and goats, one set of "old" bag pipes, farm tools, guns, spectacles, shoemakers tools, bee-hives, books, deerskins and a bearskin, smith's tools, pewter and candlesticks, knee buckles, one silk purse, four yards fine linen, etc.
     He and his wife may be buried in the Williams Cemetery on Swift Run Creek.
     They had six children, James, Ambrose, Elizabeth, John, Mary, and Joel
     Children:

     Patented 400 acres at the head of the Hans near Lindside. The homestead adjoined the Coalter, Swope, Peck, Thrasher and others.
     Listed in 1810 Monroe County census as 1 male (16-26, 1 male from the a history of the Sturgill Family, by David Andrew Sturgill, published in 1960.
     John Stodgill and his wife, Elizabeth Harvey, probably made their first home in Orange County, Virginia, but apparently left there soon after their marriage about 1765.
     In 1760, John bought a 250 acre farm from John Winslow; in 1769 he sold it plus 90 acre inherited from his father's estate to John Sackleford.
     They probably moved to Greenbrier Co., Va (now Morgan Co., WVa) at that time.
     First Census of the United States 1785 shows John Sturgill in Greenbrier County, Virginia.
     He continued to appear on the Orange County tax rolls because he still owned the 200 acres which his father, James, had purchased from Zacharie Taylor in 1732, and which he had also inherited. When this land was sold in 1818, John was living in Morgan County, West Virginia.
     Their first child was probably born in Orange County, Virginia; the others in what is now Morgan County, West Virginia. After 1818 John moved on to Kentucky where he married a second time. Elizabeth died in West Virginia.

     vi. Joel Stodghill, b. Abt. 1750, Orange Co, Virginia, d. September 14, 1795, Elbert County, Georgia. JOEL STODGHILL was only three years old when his father died And thirteen when his mother died. After his mother's death in 1763, the Church Wardens of St. Thomas Parish bound Joel to Elizabeth Stodghill. It has been assumed that this was Elizabeth, wife of his older brother John. Other records now indicate that John and Elizabeth were not married until after 1765 As there was no other Elizabeth Stodghill known to be living in that area at that time, this Elizabeth, to whom Joel was bound, must have been an older sister who married John Hash. This supposition is supported by the tradition in both the Sturgill and Hash families that the second wife of John Hash was Elizabeth Sturgill (Stodgill). If this tradition is correct, and, in my opinion, it is, then Joel did have an older sister named Elizabeth. It is not known for certain from where or when John Hash moved to Grayson Co., Va., but the date is thought to be between 1765 and 1770. No records of him have been found in Orange Co., Va. but it is known that a John Hash, believed to be his son by his first wife lived just across the mountain in Shenandoah Co., Va., less than twenty miles from where the Stodgill families lived. This John Hash was still there in 1790.
     In 1767, Joel was released from Elizabeth at his own request and bound to Joseph Mann to learn a trade. Under the customs of the time this would not have been done until he had reached the age of 16, which would place his birth date in 1750. This date of 1767 coincides with the approximate date his brother John moved to Greenbrier Co. and also with the approximate date John Hash and Elizabeth Stodgill first appeared in Grayson Co., Virginia. After the departure of all his brothers, the tax records of Orange Co. show that Joel continued to live there until 1790. It is not known exactly where he lived, but it was probably on the 200 acres his brother John still owned there until 1818 and which would have been the original Stodgill homestead in Orange Co. and where Joel was born. In 1787, Joel did buy a tract of 100 acres from Charles Pearcy, described as the land where Joel was then living. He gave a mortgage for that land, which was declared in default by a court in 1792. No records have been found to indicate that Joel received any share in his father's estate, but it is now believed that he probably received a cash settlement from the other heirs. When he moved to Elbert Co., Ga. in 1790, he owned slaves and had enough money to buy a farm there. It is also possible that the slaves were given to him as a share of his father's estate. Joel died in Elbert Co., Ga. in 1795.
     Two of his known children are listed below, but there may have been others Spouse: Maritia OLIVER Father: Durrett OLIVER Mother: Tabitha OLIVER Marr: 1781, Orange County, Virginia
     Children: Durette (1782-1857)
     Willis (1784-)
     These names were repeated down through the generations. Research from David A Sturgill and Mack Howard Sturgill Sturgill Book.
     James Stodghill's name at this time appeared variously as Stodgell or Stodgill.
     He first appears in public records after his marriage, in the 1723 deed where he and his wife and her sister and husband John Zachary sell the girls' inherited land.
     In 1731 James bought land from Jeffrey and Effie Crowley, which resulted in an interesting suit and counter suit for claims of non-payment and slander.
     James and Ann Stodgill over the years inherited, bought and sold many tracts of land, at one time said to total 1200 acres. Their homestead place, on which their last four children were born, was on Swift Run Creek, a branch of the James River near Parker's Mountain.
     After 1740, it was in the area of St. Thomas Parish, and later became Orange Co., Va., now Green Co.
     1732 Bought 200 acres from Zachary Taylor
     1741 Bought 200 acres from Thomas Calloway
     He seemed to run afoul of some of his neighbors, as he was sued once for killing neighbor William Calloway's dog, and once for failing to deliver tobacco for a piece of land, for which he successfully counter-sued for slander.
     His name appeared on jury panels and as a road-overseer.
     The inventory for his estate when he died at the age of 58 lists much cattle, horses, pigs and goats, one set of "old" bag pipes, farm tools, guns, spectacles, shoemakers tools, bee-hives, books, deerskins and a bearskin, smith's tools, pewter and candlesticks, knee buckles, one silk purse, four yards fine linen, etc.
     The estate of James Stodgill & Ann Blackstone
     The tracts of land shown in the following deeds were all adjoining or nearly so. This land was a part of an original grant to the Madison family and has been identified as the estate of James Stodgill. Most of these deeds are referred to as a "part of a tract of 1200 acres" indicating that this was the total amount of land included in the estate. The first three deeds, which are recorded in Spotsylvania Co., account for 800 acres and it is assumed that James received an additional 400 acres from the estate of John Madison, no record of this was found. When this land was sold the wording of the deed makes it clear that the sellers had received the land without payment that they had inherited it- and each guaranteed their right to sell it without contest. This indicates that some time before his death in 1753 James had divided his land among his children but never gave them written deeds for it or if so the deeds were never recorded.
     He and his wife may be buried in the Williams Cemetery on Swift Run Creek.
     They had six children, James, Ambrose, Elizabeth, John, Mary, and Joel
     The Will of Ambrose Madison was probated in Spotsylvania County in 1732. It gave 400 acres in Orange County to John.
     James moved from Essex Co, VA to Orange Co in 1732, after inheriting the land from Ambrose. After moving, James bought an additional 400 acres from Zacharia Taylor. James apparently divided up his estate among his children before he died because their is no recorded deeds.
By 1790 all of the James' children had sold the land and migrated elsewhere.
     INDENTURE DEED
     This indenture made between John Zackre and Elizabeth Hannah Zackre/Zachary his wife, and James Stogill and Anne Stogill his wife, of St. Mary'sin the County of Essex of the one part and John Bates of the Parish of Southfarnham and County aforesaid, on the other part, Witnessed that the said John Zackre and Elizabeth Hannah Zackre his wife, and James Stogill and Ann his wife, for sum of eighteen hundred pounds of Tobacco and cask to them paid hath granted unto said John Bates and his heirs and assignees all our whole right of that four hundred acres of land and to warrant forty acres thereof to him the said John Bates after a division shall be made and further we do warrant twenty acres more to him, the said John Bates which is now mortgaged to the holder after the mortgage is ended, it being four hundred acres of land formerly granted to Robert Young by Patent baring date 9th day of November 1644 as the patent more at large made and bounded on the North side of Puscaticond Creek purchased by Robert Armstrong, Grandfather of the aforesaid Elizabeth Hannah Zackre and Ann Stogill aforesaid and assigned to Nicholas Catlett the 20th of February 1672 and then afterward purchased again and acknowledged to ye aforesaid Robert Armstrong and his heirs in June 1672 again situate in the Parish of Southfarnham County of Essex and ye estate right of them and said John Zackre and James Stogill and Elizabeth Hannah Zackre and Anne Stogill all which premises are now in the actual possession of him the said John Bates by virtue of Statute of Transferring uses into possession...In the presence of Francis Gouldman, Richard Goode, and Robert Parker.

     Joel Stodghill, the youngest son of James Sr., was still a minor when his mother, Ann Blackstone Stodgill, died in 1763.

Joel took slaves with him when he moved to Georgia in 1790.

;
from Find A Grave:
     BIRTH     1630, York County, Virginia, USA
     DEATH     1688 (aged 57–58), Essex County, Virginia, USA
     *Argyle BLACKSTONE I. Born in 1630 in York County, Virginia, Son of Thomas BLACKSTONE
     Argyle's grandfather left him a cow and William Hawkins reported to the court on the condition of the orphan Argyle's property. If Argyle's father died, in the jurisdiction of the court, you would think there would be a reference to the father's property. Is it possible that Argyle came to the colonies with his grandfather? If so, the surname would not have to be Blackstone. When William Hawkins died, Argyle Blackstone was his son-in-law and a reference is made to a silver cup to be left to the parish.
     When Argyle died, a silver cup was left to the parish.
     See York Co., Va records and Beverly Fleets abstracts of Virginia records.
     Beverly Fleet was a descendent of Argyle's and has a comment on the clerk of the county.
     Married Alice Hawkins
     Argyle died in Essex County, Virginia in 1688 or 1722; he was 92?
     Early Virginia records have an Argyle Blackstone, orphan, with cattle.
     William Hawkins reported to the courts on the status of Argyle’s property,
     When William Hawkins died in the 1650’s Argyle was his son-in-law.
